We’ve been inspiring you to chase your dreams this month with an amazing edit filled with products from incredible beauty brands. From small businesses that have grown into global influencers, brands that support local communities through fair trade, and innovative and go-getting entrepreneurs, we want their backstories to empower you. You’ll have received 5 gorgeous makeup, skincare and (possibly) haircare products. We’re so pleased you liked our Empowermentbox! I mean, your GLOSSYBOX reviews speak for themselves…

BYBI – Plumper Lip Balm

We recently discovered this 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand. For more information about the brand, check out my interview with brand founders Elsie and Dominika here.

I love the Lip Pumper!

@Michaela Absalom

In your GLOSSYBOX reviews, you all commented on how plump your pouts look since you started using this lip balm. That’s thanks to the delicate notes of peppermint! The thick and creamy formula restores and protects dry lips too!

Bellapierre Cosmetics - Kiss Proof Lip Crème

We’re big fans of Bellapierre here at GLOSSYBOX. Reviews of their luscious lip crèmes show you are too! I just love how its creamy formula glides on effortlessly. Its high impact colour also lasts all day, drying to a gorgeous matte finish!

I absolutely loved the Bellapierre Lip Creme, the colours were just fab!

@Vanessa Kay Middleton

Laritzy – Dew Pot

Everyone in the Glossy office has been raving about this smooth and blendable highlighter, so none of us were surprised you were all raving about it too. The ultrafine shimmer provides a dewy radiance that last all day for a natural lit-from-within glow.

I really like the Laritzy highlighter. It creates such a natural highlight and the shade is stunning!

@Carol A Biggs

The Body Shop – Nourishing Body Butters

I love a good body butter, and The Body Shop’s are difficult to beat! Super-rich and creamy, they soften, nourish and hydrate your skin. These GLOSSYBOX reviews prove that!

I love The Body Shop Body Butters!

@Fay Lines-Norris


I couldn’t agree more! The Shea Butter one is definitely my favourite. Find out how The Body Shop has been empowering women in Ghana here.

Essence – Fixing Sprays

A little birdie told us you were after fixing sprays, so we thought we’d help you out! All of you were treated to a primer or fixing spray by essence.

I wore the hydrating spray today! It made my foundation look stunning!

@Kelly Allen

These setting sprays and primers really do help your makeup stay in place all day. For more insight into your specific essence fixing spray, check out this blog.

Lavera - Basis Sensitiv Organic All-Round Cream

The Lavera all-round cream was a big hit too! Blending nourishing shea butter and almond, it protects, softens and smoothes your skin. Personally, I love it because it’s such a useful multi-purpose cream. Did you know you can use it on both your face and body?

I just tried Lavera after the shower. It’s really thick and smells fab as well. It’s perfect for my dry skin!

@Simona Grah

Toni&Guy – Hair Perfume

Now I knew this product would be a Glossy favourite! Zesty and citrusy, it smells absolutely divine. It’s the perfect way of refreshing your hair when it’s looking a little dull. Not only will it add a shiny coat to your locks, but they’ll smell amazing too. These GLOSSYBOX reviews say it all...

I need to try the hair perfumes!

@Mandy Marrison
