As we get older, our complexion is one of the first things to show its age. Skin loses its elasticityeyes can begin to look tired, with dark circles may appear underneath - however, an effective anti-ageing skincare routine can help keep skin looking brighter, nourished more energised. 

If you’re looking for products that will helimprove the appearance of these inevitable signs of ageing, you need to be clued up on the types of ingredients that can help you achieve the results you want. Hyaluronic acid will work wonders to keep your complexion looking plump and hydrated, while lactic acid and glycolic acids will aid in exfoliation, leaving you skin more radiant. The right ingredients can also help tired eyes. Dark circles can benefit from ingredients such as elderflower extract and Eyebright plant extract which both work to brighten and refresh tired, puffy eyes. 

With these key ingredients and more, the GLOSSYBOX Skincare range is ideal for ageing skin. Not only have we created 10 products that are simple, affordable and effective, but they’re perfectly tailored to your every skincare need too! 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare: Ageing Skin Morning Routine  

Step 1A: Smooth And Energise With Our Exfoliating Clay Scrub  


If you have ageing skin and are concerned about fine lines and wrinkles, we recommend exfoliating every other day before you cleanse. As we get older, surface cell turnover slows, so it’s essential you exfoliate to help skin stay looking refreshed. 

Luckily, this Exfoliating Clay Scrub will not only deeply clean your pores, but it will buff away dead skin cells that make your complexion look dull and tired too. It will leave your skin looking instantly smooth and radiant, whilst giving tired-looking skin an instant boost too. After just two weeks, your skin will seem more supple and energised!* One of our trialists said: 

“This is a fantastic product. It makes my skin feel amazing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 124 people. 

Why Our Exfoliating Clay Scrub Works  

To leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed, our Exfoliating Clay Scrub is made of a blend of three hardworking ingredients that are great for glowing skin. Rice makes for a great exfoliator, gently buffing away dead skin cells from even the trickiest of areas to reach, while Cornish clay draws out your skin’s impurities to deeply cleanse pores and helps leave the skin looking shine-free. Superhero ingredients glycolic acid and lactic acid help to buff away dead skin, exfoliate and unclogging pores to reveal smoother, more radiant skin. 

How To Use The Exfoliating Clay Scrub  

As an exfoliator: At least once a week use gentle circular motions to apply an almond-sized amount onto damp skin, focusing on your nose and t-zone. Massage it into your skin for 30 to 40 seconds, then rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a towel.  

As a mask: Apply a smooth layer onto your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a towel.  

Glossy Tip: When you exfoliate, you expose delicate skin that is easy to dry out, so make sure that you follow your full cleansing, toning and hydration routine after exfoliating. 

Or, step 1B: Clean And Nourish With Our Deep Cleansing Cream  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Deep Cleansing Cream

As we get older, our skin also becomes drier, so you need to avoid cleansers that leave your complexion feeling tight and stripped. That’s where our Deep Cleansing Cream comes in.   

Its creamy and indulgent formula not only removes makeup, dirt and impurities in a single use, but it enriches your skin with nourishing and hydrating ingredients too. One of our trialists said: 

“I loved how rich and creamy this cleanser was. It left my skin feeling soft and moisturised.”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 96 people. 

Why Our Deep Cleansing Cream Works  

Our Deep Cleansing Cream’s three key ingredients are all skin improving oils. Inca inchi and babassu oils have wonderful skincare perks; from the depths of Peruvian forests, inca inchi oil helps protect the skin’s barrier to leave parched skin feel soft and supple, while Brazilian babassu oil leaves your complexion feeling soft and nourished thanks to a combination of fatty acidsTsubaki oil is another versatile ingredient that is known to benefit the skinHarvested from the seeds of the Camellia japonica plant in South Korea, this renowned oil helps to nourish and hydrate the complexion, leaving the skin feeling silky smooth. 

How To Use The Deep Cleansing Cream  

  1. Apply an almond-sized amount to your fingertips. 
  2. Massage it onto your damp skin using gentle circular motions for 30 to 45 seconds, or until the creamy texture transforms into an oil. 
  3. Rinse with lukewarm water. 
  4. Gently pat your skin dry with a towel. 

Step 2: Tone And Soften With Our Hydrating Mist  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare hydrating mist

After cleansing, you should always tone and refresh your skin. That’s where our Hydrating Mist comes in. Not only does it tone, prime and replenish your skin, but its refreshing formula will add an instant boost of hydration, making it feel immediately smoother, softer and more supple! One of our trialists said: 

“It feels so fresh on my skin, soaks in quickly with no greasiness, and smells lovely!”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 93 people. 

Why Our Hydrating Mist Works   

The key ingredients in our Hydrating Mist are hyaluronic acid, inca inchi oil and babassu oil, each of which has its own unique skincare qualities. Hyaluronic acid is a well known, and commonly sought-after, ingredient that has a number of skin benefits. Intensely hydrating, hyaluronic acid is ideal for hydrating and smoothing dry skin. Lesser known inca inchi and babassu oils also have great perks. Originating from the depths of the Amazon forest in Peru, inca inchi oil help replenish the suppleness of parched skin, while Brazilian babassu oil - which is packed with fatty acids - leaves your complexion feeling soft and nourished.  

How To Use The Hydrating Mist   

As a toner: Spray three bursts onto your cleansed skin to tone your complexion. 

As a primer: Spray three bursts onto moisturised skin to prime before makeup application. 

As a refreshing mist: Spray three bursts onto your skin during the day as an extra hydration boost. 

Step 3: Brighten Your Eyes With The Eye Boost Cream  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare eye cream

As the skin under your eyes is thinner than the rest of your body, it is particularly delicate and therefore susceptible to drying out. On top of that, if you have dry skin, then your eye area will likely struggle to retain moisture. Using our Eye Boost Cream is an essential step.  

Its fast-absorbing formula will lock in moisture around your eye area, and make tired, puffy under-eyes feel deeply hydrated and look brighter. One of our trialists said: 

“I loved this product! It really brightened my eyes up and reduced the dark circles around them.”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 110 people. 

Why Our Eye Boost Cream Works  

Our Eye Boost Cream is a blend of three key ingredients; elderflower extract, Eyebright plant extract and red seaweed. Elderflower has many benefits. This flower extract contains antioxidants that help to protect skin and even skin tone. 

Eyebright is a soothing plant derived extract helps skin to appear revitalised and more refreshed - which is exactly what is needed for thin, delicate skin around the eyes. Over time, this herbal ingredient also works to refresh and brighten tired, puffy eyes. 

Red seaweed helps to protect your skin’s natural barrier by locking in moisture which helps to soften the skin. 

How To Use The Eye Boost Cream  

  1. Using the nozzle, apply three dots of cream onto your under-eye area. 
  2. Gently pat it into the skin under your eyes and up towards your temples. 

Step 4: Achieve Hydrated, Plump And Revitalised Skin With Our 3-in-1 Moisturiser  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Clay Scrub

As I’ve already mentioned, ageing skin may be very dry or prone to sensitivity, so using an effective but lightweight moisturiser is essential. Fortunately, our 3-in-1 Moisturiser is lightweight yet powerful. It helps to hydrate, plump and brighten your complexion, whilst nourishing and smoothing it too. After two weeks, users reported that the product helped to reduce the appearance of fine lines and that their skin felt protected from moisture loss. One of our trialists said: 

“I loved everything about it – the texture and how well it rubbed into my skin. The smell is also amazing. My skin felt great!”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 110 people. 

Why Our 3-in-1 Moisturiser Works  

Intensely hydrating, hyaluronic acid is a much-loved skincare ingredient. It’s ideal for hydrating and smoothing dry skin, which in turn can help improve the appearance of fine lines. Tsubaki oil helps protect your complexion from drying out by nourishing and hydrating the skin, leaving it feeling silky smoothThe third key ingredient in our 3-in-1 Moisturiser is red seaweed. Red seaweed helps to protect your skin’s natural barrier by locking in moisture which helps to revitalise and soften the skin. 

How To Use The 3-in-1 Moisturiser  

  1. Massage a pea-sized amount onto your dry face and neck.  
  2. Allow it to sink in for 45 seconds before applying makeup.  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare: Ageing Skin Evening Routine 

Step 1: Cleanse With Our Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser

This cleanser is great for dry, ageing skin too, as its gel formula won’t leave your skin feeling stripped of its moisture. Instead it effectively removes makeup, as well as dirt and impurities from the day. Better yet, the comforting formula will leave your skin feeling hydrated, nourished and refreshed. One of our trialists said: 

“I used to use a gel cleanser made by Clarins. I found this product to have the same texture and cleansing properties of the Clarins one. My skin felt soft and clean after every use.”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 105 trialists. 

Why Our Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser Works  

Facial cleansing is essential for helping surface cell renewal and for helping the skin to better absorb any nutrients it needs to become healthier-looking - and the micelles in this Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser aid with this, helping to cleanse away dirt and excess oils from your pores. 

Packed full of essential omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants, blueberry seed oil is another key ingredient in this cleanser. We’ve used upcycled blueberry oil, which is effective at moisturising and helping to protect the skin’s barrier. Also, cactus stem extract acts in a similar way to blueberry seed oil, soothing and moisturising your complexion. 

How To Use The Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser  

  1. Gently lather an almond-sized amount of gel in your damp hands.   
  2. Apply it onto your damp skin using gentle circular motions for 20 seconds.   
  3. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.  
  4. Pat your skin dry with a towel.   
  5. To thoroughly remove makeup, repeat.  

Step 2: Brighten And Soften With Our Hydrating Mist

I did say that you should always tone your skin after cleansing! See above for details about this product.  

Step 3: Nourish And Brighten With Our Night Serum 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Night Serum

Did you know that your skin repairs itself whilst you sleep? That’s why overnight treatments can make such a difference to your skin. We’d recommend using our Night Serum to truly make the most of your beauty sleep. Deeply hydrating and revitalising, it will nourish and brighten your complexion as you sleep. One of our trialists said: 

“I adore this product! It is the best serum I have ever tried. It leaves my skin so smooth, feeling so pampered, hydrated and clear looking.”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 88 people. 

Why Our Night Serum Works  

With a blend of Glycolic acid, blueberry seed oil (again, this are upcycled!) and Persian silk tree extract, our Night Serum has a number of benefits. Glycolic acid helps remove surface dead skin cells, gently exfoliating and unclogging pores to reveal smoother skin. And, as a result, makes your skin more even and illuminated. 

Blueberry seed oil is a great ingredient for hydrating and nourishing the skin, as well as moisturising and softening. Persian silk tree extract also offers impressive skin benefits. This ingredient works to revitalise and energise the skin and create a brighter-looking complexion. 

How To Use The Night Serum  

  1. Massage a pea-sized amount of serum into your skin before bed. 

Step 4: Wake Up With Refreshed Eyes With Our Eye Boost Cream

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
