If you often experience redness or break outs trying new products, chances are you could have sensitive skin. But sensitive skin doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy experimenting with skincare and makeup - you just have to find the right products and create a unique sensitive skin routine for you. 

Products that are fragrance free or are made with gentle ingredients such as cactus stem extract and babassu oil can help to soothe your complexion, while biodegradable exfoliation beads and rice exfoliators will gently buff away dead skin cells. 

If you find that your skin is a little sensitive, the GLOSSYBOX Skincare range is full of products with ingredients that will delicately nourish and refresh. Based on subscriber feedback, not only have we created 10 products that are simple, affordable, effective and made from high quality, active ingredients, but they’re perfectly tailored to your every skincare need too!  

While you can browse and shop our products individually, we wanted to make things even easier for you. So, we’ve bundled together the exact products that’ll work for your skin type (and we’re offering them to you with huge savings!). These sets have been launched based on subscriber feedback – Glossies wanted an amazing value savings and sets specifically tailored to skin concerns, so this is what we’ve made! 

The six products in our Sensitive Skin Bundle are gentle yet effective. Consisting of lightweight creams, cleansers and scrubs, this bundle works to delicately remove dirt and impuritieslock in moisture, tone, hydrate and refresh. 

The Sensitive Skin Set includes:  

  1. Gentle Foaming Cleanser  
  2. Night Serum   
  3. Hydrating Mist   
  4. Exfoliating Clay Scrub  
  5. 3-in-1 Moisturiser  
  6. Eye Boost Cream 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare: Sensitive Skin Morning Routine 

Step 1: Cleanse With Our Gentle Foaming Cleanser 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Gentle Foaming Cleanser

If you have sensitive skin, you may need to avoid cleansers that have strong fragrances. You should also steer clear of formulas that leave your complexion feeling tight and stripped. That’s why we’d recommend using our Gentle Foaming Cleanser to wash your face in the morning.  

Gentle and fragrance-free, its foam texture will feel kind against your skin, yet still effectively remove the dirt and impurities that have settled onto your complexion throughout the night. Trust us, your skin will be left feeling cleansed, soothed and hydrated! One of our trialists said: 

“The product was very effective, taking off all makeup and freshening my skin. It seemed gentle on my skin and didn’t sting my eyes.”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 74 people. 

Why Our Gentle Foaming Cleanser Works   

The three key ingredients in our Gentle Foaming Cleanser are all plant extracts with incredible skincare benefits. Cactus stem extract helps soothe your complexion whilst providing a huge kick of moisture to skin cellsIt also contains vitamins B1, B2, B2 and C that can leave your complexion looking young, fresh and supple. Resurrection leaf extract also leaves your complexion feeling hydrated. This extract also helps to leave the skin feeling soft and nourished. Kangaroo paw flower extract can be found on the sandy plains of Western Australia, however is often found in skincare products worldwide. This ingredient keeps your skin feeling supple, smooth and fresh. 

How To Use The Gentle Foaming Cleanser  

  1. Spray two pumps of foam into your hands.  
  2. Rub your hands together to create a lather.  
  3. Gentle massage the foam onto your dry or damp skin using circular motions for 30 seconds.  
  4. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.  
  5. Pat your skin dry with a towel.  

Step 2: Tone And Refresh 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 your complexion feel soothed with moisture. 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 helps 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. 

Rich in minerals and antioxidants, red seaweed has outstanding moisture-retaining properties. 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 Skin With Our 3-in-1 Moisturiser  

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Clay Scrub

Give our sensitive 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!”* 

*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 smooth. The 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.  
  1. Allow it to sink in for 45 seconds before applying makeup.

Step 1: 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 2: 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, these 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 to 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 3: Wake Up With Refreshed Eyes With Our Eye Boost Cream

To enjoy the full effects of our Eye Boost Cream, you should use it morning and night. See above for product details. 

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 your complexion feeling radiance. 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.

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!
