When it comes to beauty, GLOSSYBOX’s global experts are dedicated to trying, experimenting and sharing their favourite finds from around the world. They sure know a thing or two about beauty and, to celebrate the launch of the ‘World Of Beauty’ June GLOSSYBOX, they’ll be letting you in on the products they just can’t live without 

Elle Nash, Editor for GLOSSYBOX UK and Ireland reveals the seven products that she uses every day... 

1. ESPA Optimal Skin ProCleanser - £32

Both your morning and evening skincare routine should always start with a cleanse – so I thought I’d start there too. I’ve tried a lot of cleansers in my time as editor, but few have surpassed the likes of the ESPA Optimal Skin ProCleanser.

It combines moringa seed extract with jojoba spheres and pumpkin enzymes to gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin. I can’t stress just how luscious my complexion feels after using it! My skin is just so smooth, so soft, and really bright. It’s the best wake up call for my skin.  

2. Elemis Superfood Day Cream - £42

After cleansing and toning, my go-to moisturiser is the ELEMIS Superfood Day CreamNot only does it leave my skin feeling healthy, hydrated, and revitalised, but it smells amazing too! Every time I apply it, I remember that my skincare routine is a pampering indulgence, not a chore.

Formulated with ginger, matcha tea, and goji berry, this cream is rich in antioxidants that hydrate, smooth and protect your skin. Though it’s a bit expensive, it is definitely worth the investment! 

3. L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Carbon Mascara - £10.99

I am fortunate enough to have smooth, blemish-free skin naturally, so I very rarely wear base makeup. Instead, I rely on three key makeup products to boost my confidence. If I had to pick my ultimate makeup bag essential, though, it would be the L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Carbon Mascara.

Thanks to its thin bristles, I can reach each individual lash and apply a coat of mascara that makes them look thicker and more voluminous. I just love the way it amplifies my eyes!  

4. MAC Rebel Satin Lipstick - £17.50

Sometimes, though, I prefer to make my pout the star of the show! As you probably know, I have a soft spot for a purple lippy and, amid my large collection, my go-to is MAC’s Rebel Satin Lipstick.

Its gorgeous shade is beautiful and multifunctional! The perfect balance between a dark purple (like Instigator) or a lighter one (like Flat Out Fabulous), it works both in the winter and the summer. Plus, it has a velvety sheen finish that keeps your lips hydrated during the day and looks really chic for an evening look. 

5. Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow - £28

Whilst blending and building layers of eyeshadow is good fun and takes me back to my experimental teenage years, I usually opt for Bobbi Brown eyeshadow stick to achieve an effortless eye look.

Boasting a smooth and highly-pigmented formula, you just glide it onto your eyelid, smudge it out with your fingers, and you’ve got yourself a soft, diffused look that is so eye-catching! I have a particular soft spot for the Peach mimosa shade. Light and shimmery, you can dab it into the corner of your eyes and it will brighten your whole face!  

6. OSKIA Renaissance Body Scrub - £48

As beauty lovers, we all take a lot of care looking after our complexions and meticulously applying makeup – but we’re often guilty of overlooking the rest of our body. I was too, until I discovered the OSKIA Renaissance Body Scrub.

This is the best bodycare product I have ever used! Blending pink Himalayan salt crystals, 84 rich minerals, pumpkin enzymes, and vitamin E, it gently buffs away dead cells, then nourishes and firm the fresh, soft skin underneath. My skin is left feeling soft, revitalised and beautiful. I’m obsessed.  

7. Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle - £8

One of my biggest beauty pet peeves is applying a body moisturiser that leaves a greasy and sticky film on your skin. I think you’ll all agree that it makes getting dressed such a nightmare. That’s why I’m so glad I discovered the Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle. It’s honestly revolutionary and such a time saver! 

Before you jump out of the shower, you massage it onto drenched skin, then get out without rinsing and towel dry as normal. As it is enriched with apricot and avocado oils, it is really hydrating and leaves your skin feeling nourished. Better yet, you can get dressed immediately after using it! So, if you’re short on time or love an in-shower product, I can’t recommend this moisturiser enough.  

And those are my favourite beauty products!
