Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo Lip Liner – Rosewood

Lining your lips is essential for defining and prolonging the wear of your lipstick. Now you can enhance your pout with this soft wax lip pencil from Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo! A few of you commented on Alice’s gorgeous lip colour during the Facebook Live. She used the lip liner in your September box coupled with an llamasqua Liquid Lipstick in the shade Rose Pout.

I worry about being more mature. What do you recommend for older skin?

Sharon Ann Evans 

Sharon was also worried about whether the shade is suitable for mature skin. This shade is perfect because particularly as you get older, your lips need defining more and more. This shade is subtle but bold enough to make your pout look fuller no matter your age!

Grow Gorgeous Scalp Detox

The Scalp Detox from Grow Gorgeous helps to detox your scalp from impurities that block the roots to create the perfect environment for hair growth! Some of you were worried that it irritates the scalp:

Does the scalp detox irritate skin? How much should I apply?

Zena Choi
I recommend using a generous amount, rubbing it between your hands and using your finger tips to massage the product all over the scalp in circular motions. Don’t worry because the scalp detox doesn’t irritate skin but you may feel a mild cool sensation as the purifying properties start to detoxify your scalp.

Bang Beauty Brow Cream

Nothing gives you a confidence boost more than a powerful brow. This Eyebrow Cream has a velvety consistency that applies effortlessly so you can get perfect brows at home. It also comes with an angled brush for applying thick, defined brows that stay in place day and night – don’t forget to check your box before throwing it away!

Is it strange that I don’t like big brows?

Karen Miller

Some of you were worried that you don’t suit big brows but don’t worry because you don’t have to go too bold or bushy. You can use this brow cream and mini brush to define thinner brows or whatever brow shape suits you. The most important thing is feeling comfortable!


BeautyPro Detoxifying Bubbling Mask with Activated Charcoal

We know that September can be a tiring time so we’re bringing you this award-winning sheet mask to revive your skin. Using activated charcoal (a miracle worker for blemish prone skin) and extracts of lime, lemon, apple, orange and grapefruit, this mask is a wonder for detoxing your skin, refining pores and reducing oil!

Is the mask ok for sensitive skin?

Kerry Jones 

The mask has been dermatologically tested and is suitable for all skin types included acne prone skin. Just remember to rinse your skin with warm water after applying the mask.

Wet Ones: Be Fresh

Wet Ones are the ultimate handbag and travel essential. We popped a pack of the bestselling Be Fresh Antibacterial Wipes from Wet Ones inside your September Back To School GLOSSYBOXES that’ll come to the rescue when you most need them!

Can I take the wipes on the plane?

Lucy Jones

The good news is that even if your liquid hand sanitizer gets confiscated at airport security, you can take Wet Ones with your everywhere!

Daily Concepts Your Facial Mini Scrubber

This little beauty from America is made using soy and a natural cotton base layer which creates a really rich lather. It’s perfect for sensitive skin and is dermatologically and allergy-tested for peace of mind. We love that it’s cruelty free and has a cute little pocket to put your fingers in too.

Does the exfoliating facial scrubber help acne prone skin?

Alex Bowen 
This scrubber is perfect for all skin types. It’s particularly good to use if you have sensitive, acne prone skin because it gently exfoliates unlike some harsher facial scrubs.

Wild Garden Pure & Fabulous Eau de Parfum, Body Lotion, Body Mist & Sweet & Naughty Body Lotion

You may have received one of these WILD GARDEN products in your September GLOSSYBOX. These refreshing scented parfums, mists and moisturisers are handbag essentials essential for a quick freshen-up. With notes of pear, water lily and warm amber, it will transport you to a beautiful wild garden.

Are the WILD GARDEN products cruelty-free?

Louise Neilson

Yes, all of the WILD GARDEN products in our September box are cruelty-free and aren’t sold in China.

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.
