We always want to make sure you’re fully in the know when it comes to skincare – whether that’s what products will work best for your skin type, or what the benefits of certain ingredients are. 

And with our very own GLOSSYBOX Skincare rangethis is something we will always continue to help you with... 

So, we asked you what questions you really wanted answering about our skincare range and we got our GLOSSYBOX Skincare experts to answer them for you!

Which GLOSSYBOX Skincare product is best at reducing redness? 

None of the products in the GLOSSYBOX Skincare range have been specifically formulated to combat redness. However, people prone to redness and flare ups need to use well formulated, uncomplicated skincare routines (which also avoid an overload of ingredients which may encourage this redness to occur), and the GLOSSYBOX Skincare range has been designed with these formulation principles at the heartWe recommend our Gentle Foaming Cleanser followed by our 3-in-1 Moisturiser to help reduce redness.

I have acne and large pores; which GLOSSYBOX Skincare products would help clear up my skin? 

A similar answer to the above. GLOSSYBOX Skincare products are not specifically designed to treat blemishes and acne, but the simplicity and elegance of the formulations will help with skin prone to these conditionsTry using our Purifying Charcoal Cleanser followed by our lighter 3-in-1 Moisturiserfor best results.

I have a dry T-Zone and oily face; which GLOSSYBOX Skincare products are best? 

The GLOSSYBOX Skincare Gentle Foaming Cleanser is ideal for this skin type. It’s gentle enough to cleanse your complexion without stripping away moisture (which is what the T-zone needs), yet also perfectly lifts excess oil from the rest of the face. Our Exfoliating Clay Scrub is also perfect for this skin type, as is our3-in-1 Moisturiser.

Which products in the GLOSSYBOX Skincare range are fragrance free? 

There are two products in the GLOSSYBOX Skincare range that do not contain fragrances. These are our Gentle Foaming Cleanser and our Eye Boost Cream.

Are the ingredients in GLOSSYBOX Skincare products suitable for lash extensions? 

We would recommend you avoid using GLOSSYBOX Skincare products around the eye area. Also, any products that contain oils can be problematic for lash extensions - this applies to most skin care regimes.


What percentage of Hyaluronic Acid is in GLOSSYBOX Skincare products? 

We do not use one specific level of Hyaluronic Acid across our range. The level is decided for each product depending on the other ingredients in the formulation and the product’s end use. The efficacy of GLOSSYBOX Skincare formulas come from a careful balance of well selected ingredients.  

What are the benefits of the ingredients in the GLOSSYBOX Skincare Eye Boost Cream? 

  • Elderflower extract Reduces the appearance of dark circles  
  • Eyebright extract - Works to refresh tired, puffy eyes. 
  • Red seaweed Creates a protective barrier that locks in moisture around the eye area

What ingredients are good at deep cleansingbut also don't dry out your skin? 

The combination of Inca Inchi, Babassu and Tsubaki oils in the GLOSSYBOX Skincare Deep Cleansing Cream would be good for this. Together these ingredients are light enough to remove oil soluble grime and make up, but also mimic the skin’s own moisturising sebum, ensuring your skin remains supple and hydrated.

What are the benefits of using blueberries in the GLOSSYBOX Skincare Night Serum? 

Blueberry seed oil is naturally rich in Vitamin E. As a moisturiser and an antioxidant, Vitamin E is perfect for use in effective skincare.

What ingredients in the GLOSSYBOX Skincare moisturisers benefit the skin? 

3-in-1 Moisturiser 

  • Hyaluronic acid – Keeps your complexion looking plump and hydrated 
  • Tsubaki oil – Works to moisturise your skin 
  • Red seaweed – Creates a protective barrier that helps to lock in moisture

  • Hyaluronic acid – Keeps your complexion looking hydrated 
  • Inca Inchi oil – Supports your skin’s natural barrier and helps to keep it feeling moisturised 
  • Camelina oil – Leaves your skin looking and feeling supple, nourished and healthy 

Is the GLOSSYBOX Skincare Eye Boost Cream suitable for more mature skin? 

Yes. Although designed for younger skin, this eye cream is effective at any ageHowever, a slightly richer product may be required for additional benefits for older skin.

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!
