It’s always amazing to see all your questions about this month’s products during our Facebook Live, so I’ve gone through the comments and answered them below!

Novex Mystic Black Hair Mask

Would you recommend leaving it on rather than rinsing it? I have been rinsing it but thought about switching it up.
Ola Ahmed

I would recommend washing out with this product. The Mystic Black Hair Mask is super hydrating, but you don't want to overly hydrate your hair as it will end up looking greasy when dry. Use a small amount of the product and work into wet hair, leave on for 3-10 minutes and then wash out as you would with shampoo or conditioner.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub

Do you need to use an SPF with the Nip and Fab scrub?
Gillian Kelly

As exfoliators strip your skin and work away the dead skin on your face I would always recommend using an SPF after an exfoliator. Although it is amazing for your skin it can make it sensitive straight after use, so you want to keep it protected with an SPF if you've exfoliated in the morning and are heading out for the day.

Laritzy Shade Stix

What’s the best way to use the bronzing stick in a subtle way? I’m very pale but would love to look sunkissed!

Laura O'Herlihy

Many of our Glossies have asked us this. I am also very pale but love having a tan so I created a tutorial on how I contour with the Laritzy Shade Stix here. With this product, a little goes a long way. Use the edge of the product and very lightly line it against your skin. I would always recommend researching into what contouring technique works for your face shape as you don't want to define the wrong areas.

MONU Skin Eye Cool Gel

I get really dark circles after travelling would this help?
Sharon Ann Evans

Absolutely! Sarah loves using this product on a long haul flight with a sleep mask to keep her hydrated and to decrease the signs of tiredness. The mix of Arnica, Vitamin C, Sodium Hyaluronate and Ginseng in this product effectively reduces puffiness and dark circles under the eye whilst lifting, plumping and correcting skin.

Lancaster SPF 15 Sun Beauty Silky Fluid Milk

Is there a factor you’d recommend for going under make up ?

Kimberly Ashe

Whatever factor you use is always dependant on your skin type. This product being SPF 15 means you can stay in the sun 15 times longer than you usually would without protection. This product has a lovely lightweight formula that absorbs into your skin very quickly, making it the perfect base for makeup. If your skin is particularly sensitive or if you burn you would usually need to wear a higher SPF like 30 or even 50. However this amazing product targets 100% of sun rays like UVA, UVB, infrared and more whereas other suncreams only protect you from 25% of sun exposure.

Wilkinson Sword Intuition F.A.B Razor

Does it not give ingrown hairs? Always worried about those.

Nikki Harwood

I always suffer with ingrown hairs when shaving due to the usual friction normal razors create. I found that with the F.A.B razor thanks to it allowing you to shave forwards and backwards it creates no friction from pulling hairs in uncomfortable directions so I haven't suffered with ingrown hairs thankfully!

Gatineau Eye Makeup Remover & Throat Gel

Is that throat gel good for the more mature lady?
Sharon Ann Evans

The throat gel is an anti-aging product that is suitable for all ages and skin types. We are encouraged to use anti-aging products from a young age as prevention is always better than a cure so it is a necessity for most individuals. Plus, it leaves your neck and décolleté feeling so smooth!

I am always searching for future trends - beauty, fashion, hair, you name it! I’ve tried every foundation under the sun and love trying up-and-coming makeup brands to compare them with the big names. Variety is the spice of life and my makeup bag is definitely wide-ranging.
