GLOSSYBOX Skincare: A Routine For Oily & Combination Skin

GLOSSYBOX Skincare: A Routine For Oily & Combination Skin

Have you heard? We’re launching our very own skincare range – and we’ve used your survey feedback and social media comments to tailor it just for you! It features ten products that are simple, affordable and effective. Better yet, each one has been tailored to specific skin concerns, so you can mix and match them to create your personalised skincare routine. 

Whilst you can browse our full range and choose the products that you think are right for you here, here’s what we’d recommend if you have oily or combination skin.  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Oily And Combination Skin Morning Routine  

Step 1: Cleanse With Purifying Charcoal Cleanser  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Charcoal Cleanser

Though suitable for all skin types, this cleanser is the ultimate purifier for oily complexions. Its charcoal-infused formula will remove excess oils and dirt from your pores, leaving your complexion looking clear, polished and intensely cleansed. One of our trialists said:

I loved this product! It offered a very gentle exfoliation with no harshness. It made my skin look visibly brighter and removed all impurities.

Why It Works  

  • Activated bamboo charcoal works to cleanse away dirt and impurities.
  • Biodegradable exfoliation beads help to gently buff away dead skin cells.
  • Peat leaf makes your complexion feel cleaner and more hydrated.

How To Use The Purifying Charcoal Cleanser  

  • Massage an almond-sized amount onto your damp skin using gentle circular motions for 45 seconds.
  • Rinse with lukewarm water.
  • Gently pat your skin dry with a towel.

Step 2: Tone And Soften With Our Hydrating Mist

After cleansing, you should always tone and rebalance 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 look brighter and feel softer! One of our trialists said:

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

 Why It Works  

  • Hyaluronic acid keeps your skin feeling hydrated and looking refreshed all day long.
  • Inca inchi oil helps to support your skin’s natural barrier.
  • Babassu oil 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 20 times thinner than the rest of your body, it is particularly delicate and struggles to retain moisture. Using the Eye Boost Cream is an essential step.  

Its lightweight, fast-absorbing formula will lock in moisture around your eye area, and make your tired, puffy under-eyes look brighterIt’s the ultimate eye care treatment! One of our trialists said:

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

Why It Works  

  • Elderflower extract helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles.
  • Eyebright plant extract works to refresh tired, puffy eyes.
  • Red seaweed creates a protective barrier that locks in moisture around the eye area.

How To Use The Eye Boost Cream   

  • Using the nozzle, apply 3 dots of cream onto your under-eye area.
  • Gently pat it into your skin under your eyes and up towards your temples.

Step 4: Achieve Hydrated, Shine-Free Skin With Our 3-in-1 Moisturiser  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Clay Scrub

Treat your oily or combination skin to a hydration boost and create the perfect base for your makeup thanks to our 3-in-1 Moisturiser! Lightweight yet powerful, it plumps, primes and protects your complexion, whilst nourishing and smoothing it too. One of our trialists said:

It made my skin soft and hydrated, and kept my makeup in place all day. I loved the scent too!*

Why It Works 

  • Hyaluronic acid keeps your complexion looking plump and hydrated. 
  • Tsubaki oil works to moisturise your skin.
  • Red seaweed creates a protective barrier that locks in that moisture. 

How To Use The 3-in-1 Moisturiser 

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

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Oily And Combination Skin Evening Routine  

Step 1A: Polish And Refine With Our Exfoliating Clay Scrub  


If you have oily or combination skin, we recommend exfoliating every other day before you cleanse. Not only will it keep your oily skin looking shine-free, but it will buff away dead skin cells, deeply cleanse your pores and leave your skin feeling purified. Our Exfoliating Clay Scrub is the secret to a radiant complexion! One of our trialists said:

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

Why It Works  

  • A rice exfoliator gently buffs away dead skin cells.
  • Cornish clay deeply cleanses your pores and keeps oily skin looking shine-free.
  • Lactic and glycolic acids restore your complexion’s radiance and make it feel energised.

How To Use The Exfoliating Clay Scrub  

  • As an exfoliator: 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.  

Step 1B: Clean And Nourish With Our Deep Cleansing Cream  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Deep Cleansing Cream

To avoid using too much charcoal on your skin, switch out your morning cleanser for the Deep Cleansing Cream in the evening. 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 love how well it took my makeup off. I usually double cleanse but this worked so well with a single cleanse.*

Why It Works 

  • Inca inchi oil supports your skin’s natural barrier.
  • Babassu oil helps to nourish your complexion.
  • Tsubaki oil keeps your skin feeling hydrated.

How To Use The Deep Cleansing Cream 

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

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 the way it looks and feels. We’d recommend using our Night Serum to make the most of your beauty sleep. Deeply hydrating and revitalising, it will nourish and brighten your complexion overnight so you wake up with illuminated skin! 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.*

  • Glycolic acid makes your skin more even and illuminated. 
  • Blueberry oil leaves skin feeling hydrated and nourished.  
  • Persian silk tree extract also helps to reduce visible signs of fatigue, creating a brighter-looking complexion.
