For gorgeous glowing skin, moisture is essential. Finding a dry skin routine and keeping your complexion nourished isn't always easy.

While some of these external factors cannot be controlled, there are simple things you can do to keep your dry skin feeling refreshed. Skincare ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid and Inca inchi oil all work to lock in moisturekeep your skin plumped and illuminated and help to support your skin’s natural barrier.

*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 perksOriginating from the depths of the Amazon forest in Peruinca inchi oil helps parched skin feel soft and supple, while babassu oil from Brazil - 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 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 2: 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 containantioxidants that help to protect skin and even skin tone. 

Eyebright is a soothing plant derived extract that 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 3: Hydrate With Our 3-in-1 Rich Moisturiser 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Rich Moisturiser

Specifically formulated for dry skin, this moisturiser boasts a rich and extra-thick formula that will hydrate even the driest of skin and help it to retain moisture. It will also leave the skin feeling plumped and act as a primer to create a great base for your makeup. One of our trialists said: 

“The smell and texture of the cream was lovely, very rich and nourishing but in no way oily.”* 

*based on consumer trial of 119 people 

Why Our 3-in-1 Rich Moisturiser Works  

Our 3-in-1 Rich Moisturiser is effective as a result of three key ingredients. The first is hyaluronic acid; this ingredient helps to reduce the visibility of fine lines by retaining your skin’s moisture. Retained moisture helps to protect the skin from dryness and support surface skin cell turnover and, as the skin is not fighting to stay hydrated, leads to smoother, plumper looking skin.  

The second key ingredient is the moisturising oil of flowering plant Camelina. Rich in vitamin E and omega oils, camelina oil helps to even skin tone and leave your skin looking and feeling supple, nourished and healthier-looking. The third key ingredient, inca inchi oil helps to support your skin’s natural barrier and keep it feeling moisturised. It also helps to nourish the complexion, leaving parched skin feeling soft and supple.

How To Use The 3-in-1 Rich 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: Dry Skin Evening Routine 

Step 1: Cleanse With Our Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser

This cleanser is great for dry skin as its gel formula effectively removes makeup, as well as dirt and impurities from the day, without leaving the skin feeling stripped of moisture. Better yet, the comforting formula will leave your skin feeling hydrated, nourished and refreshed. One of our trialists said: 

“This product is amazing! My skin feels soft after using this product. The makeup just lifts off my face. This is definitely a 10/10 for me.”* 

*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. Excellent for sensitive and oily skin types, we’ve used upcycled blueberry seed oil which is effective at moisturising and helping to protect the skin’s barrier. Alsocactus 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

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 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. 

How To Use The Night Serum  

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

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

 An Extra Weekly Pamper

Clean And Cleanse With Our Exfoliating Clay Scrub


Whilst you shouldn’t exfoliate every day if you have dry skin, it should still be an important step in your skincare routine. We’d recommend doing it once a week with our Exfoliating Clay Scrub. This product gently buffs away dead skin cells, deeply cleanses your pores and leaves skin feeling radiant. 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 poresand helps leave the skin looking shine-free. Specifically used to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and other factors that contribute to a dull complexion, 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.

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!
