Your second sneak peek inside this month’s ‘Beauty S.O.S.’ themed GLOSSYBOX is a cruelty, paraben and phthalate-free skincare product from the American brand CONTEXT. It’s a two-in-one cleanser and gentle exfoliator that soothes and purifies your skin to give you a healthy-looking complexion. Plus, it’s in a handy 30ml bottle that fits perfectly in your handbag to use every morning, no matter where the night takes you.

Natural Oils And Extracts

The CONTEXT Micro-Derm Regenerator is made from natural ingredients, including rich botanical oils and herbal extracts. Their lightweight formula combines Sunflower Oil to condition the skin, Macademia Oil to deeply nourish, and Jojoba Oil for intensive moisture.

The clear gel also contains the same white and blue Aluminum Oxide Crystals used in professional microdermabrasion treatments. They gently exfoliate and cleanse – get ready for a soft, smooth and revitalised complexion!

The Whys and Hows Of Exfoliation

Did you know that the skin renews itself overnight? That’s why you’re better off exfoliating in the morning to wash away any dead skin cells. It will leave you feeling refreshed and ready for the day.

Best of all, the Context Micro-Derm Regenerator is gentle on the face, so even those of you with sensitive skin can use it. When I tried this exfoliator, it didn’t cause an irritation or itchiness like a lot of other similar products do.

For best results: I’d recommend applying it once a day by gently massaging the gel onto your wet skin. Try not to rush the process. Having a light touch will prevent unwanted redness or blotchiness. Use slow circular motions to lather the exfoliating particles deeper into your skin – it’ll polish and remove any dull and dry cells. When you’re done exfoliating, rinse thoroughly with warm water. You can then apply moisturiser to round-off your skincare ritual. Lately, I've been loving the benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream.

The Story Behind The Brand

We love introducing you Glossies to fabulous new brands that don’t always get the attention they deserve. Context is an up and coming brand that creates unisex products for men and women to experience and share together. The Micro-Derm Regenerator, for instance, has no fragrance and is suitable for all skin types. Even the minimal and elegant packaging is gender-neutral.

You won’t be the only one benefiting from this easily-portable product. If you’ve got a boyfriend, brother or friend unexpectedly staying over, there’ll be no flowery smell to put them off using this product to freshen up in the morning too. Emergency beauty situation hacked!


Due to incredible demand, we've now sold out of our November and December Editions. You can still be part of the Glossy family though - subscribe today to pre-order January’s edition and to receive a welcome box in December. #StayGLOSSY
