GLOSSYBOX Skincare Turns 1! Here’s Why I Love Our Affordable And Effective Range So Much!


In case you missed it, it’s our 10th Birthday! But not only this, it’s also GLOSSYBOX Skincare’s 1st anniversary too! 

So, we’re celebrating our 10 affordable and effective products being there for you, whatever your skin type (oily, dry, sensitive, acne-prone or ageing), for the past 12 months.

Made up of individual products (and after a year, I’m sure you’ve run out and need top ups by now) as well as unique skincare sets, GLOSSYBOX Skincare has been cleverly created to ensure it’s tailored to your specific needs.

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Moisturisers

In case you need reminding of how wonderful our skincare product are and how they can benefit your skin, here goes…

3-in-1 Moisturiser 

One of our best selling products! This lightweight yet intense moisturiser is ideal for oily or combination skin and perfectly primes, plumps and protects. Thanks to hyaluronic acid, your complexion is hydrated, while tsubaki oil works to moisturise your skin and red seaweed keeps that moisture locked in. The result? You’re left with perfectly prepped skin for makeup application.

3-in-1 Rich Moisturiser 

The sister to our 3-in-1 moisturiser – the ‘rich’ edit is made for Glossies who are prone to dry skin. This skincare saviour, it also primes, plumps and protects with hyaluronic acid. However this time, this moisturiser uses camelina oil to nourish the skin and inca inchi oil to support your skin’s natural barrier. This rich moisturiser brightens your complexion leaving you with brilliant, beaming skin – again, the perfect base for makeup. 

How to use both GLOSSYBOX Skincare moisturisers : After cleansing, massage a pea-sized amount onto your face (don’t forget your neck!) Allow to sink in for 45 seconds before applying your makeup. 


Exfoliating Clay Scrub 

Our rice exfoliator is a Glossy fave! Want super soft, radiant skin? Our exfoliating Glossy pink Cornish clay scrub deeply cleanses pores and buffs away dead skin cells. Suitable for all skin types, lactic and glycolic acids restore radiance and energise your complexion. And what’s even better, this multi-use product can be used as an exfoliator and as a face mask! Double the uses, double the results.

How to use as an exfoliator: Apply to damp skin using gentle circular motions, focusing on your T-zone. Rinse off with lukewarm water. Repeat once a week for best results! 

How to use as a mask: Apply a smooth layer onto your face and leave on for 10 minutes. After, rinse with lukewarm water.

Night Serum 

Want to enhance your beauty sleep? Then get your hands on our Night Serum which deeply nourishes and brightens skin overnight. Persian silk tree extract helps to reduce visible signs of fatigue while blueberry oil leaves your skin feeling super hydrated. Third key ingredient glycolic acid wipes away dead skin cells and illuminates your complexion, resulting in instant brightness! 

How to use: Apply onto cleansed, slightly damp skin massaging a pea-sized amount onto your face in circular motions. 

This Night Serum, along with our 3-in-1 Moisturiser and Exfoliating Clay Scrub makes up our GLOSSYBOX Skincare Bestsellers Kit. Worth £47, but yours for only £27 if you’re a subscriber, that’s a huge skincare saving of £20!

Hydrating Mist 

My favourite face mist of all time! The GLOSSYBOX Skincare Hydrating Mist is refreshing, toning and priming – and perfect for the on-the-go Glossy. It’s the quickest and easiest way to tone and replenish your skin at any time of day! Hyaluronic acid hydrates, babassu oil nourishes and inca inchi oil supports your skin’s natural barrier. Did I mention this multi use mist smells lovely too! Use as either a primer, a toner or as a refreshing mist- even on top of makeup!

How to use as a primer : Spray three times onto moisturised skin to prime before applying foundation. 

How to use as a toner : Spray three times onto clean, cleansed skin to tone your complexion. 

How to use as a refreshing mist : Spray three times onto your face as an extra hydration boost, whenever your skin is in need or over make up for a dewy look. 

You can catch our Hydrating Mist, 3-in-1 Rich Moisturiser and Exfoliating Clay Scrub in our GLOSSYBOX Ready, Set, Glow Skincare Set. Giving you a complexion that’s bright and illuminated from dawn to dusk for only £24! With an RRP of £46, that’s again a big skincare saving!

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Deep Cleansing Cream

Deep Cleansing Cream 

Cleansing is such a big and  important part of your skincare routine – which is why we created this cleansing cream (and three more cleansers for you to choose from!). What I love is not only does it cleanse pores, it removes your makeup so quickly and easily to leave your skin feeling super soft! Plus it’s made using some of our favourite oils – inca inchi, babassu and tsubaki, which will support, nourish and hydrate your skin after every use. 

How to use: Apply in circular motions with your fingertips, massaging into damp skin and allowing the cream texture to transform into an oil. Rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel.​ 

Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser 

There are many reasons we love the French. Fashion, croissants (the love is real) and for introducing us to micellar water. Micelles in this magical ‘water’ help to cleanse away dirt and excess oils from pores – and is exactly why we had to create a cleanser with micellar for you Glossies. Suitable for all skin types, this light gel gently purifies, nourishes and softens skin. Working with blueberry seed oil and cactus stem extract to nourish, hydrate, soothe and moisturise. 

How to use: Use both morning and night. Massage an almond-sized amount of gel into damp skin to melt away makeup and cleanse away dirt. Repeat to double cleanse!

This Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser along with our 3-in-1 Moisturiser and Night Serum make up our GLOSSYBOX Skincare The Starter Set. With an RRP of £46 but yours for only £22.50 – that’s less than half price!

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Charcoal Cleanser

Purifying Charcoal Cleanser 

Charcoal is the new skincare wonder. From cleansers to face masks, charcoal is the new black. And the job of this charcoal cleanser? To improve the feel and look of your complexion by removing excess oil and dirt. And the end result? Skin that’s soft, smooth and clear!

Biodegradable exfoliating beads help to gently buff away dead skin cells (don’t worry they’re not rough and don’t irritate skin) and peat leaf cleans and hydrates your face. 

How to use: ​Again, massage onto damp skin using circular motions, remembering to use a light touch. Rinse with lukewarm water. 

Gentle Foaming Cleanser 

The last of our cleanser family – and most probably my favourite! Suitable for all skin types but designed for Glossies with sensitive skin, this fragrance-free cleanser clears and refreshes with every use. It removes impurities and dirt, but doesn’t strip away moisture.

With three unique ingredients – cactus stem, resurrection leaf and kangaroo paw flower extracts – this cleanser soothes, moisturises, hydrates and freshens skin.​ I love the foamy texture and how quick and easy this cleanser is to use. I have oily, sensitive skin and this doesn’t irritate my skin at all. Plus it also helps control my shine. 

How to use: Put one to two pumps of this cleanser onto your fingertips then, with gentle circular motions, gently massage it into dry or damp skin. Rinse with lukewarm water. 

You can find our Gentle Foaming Cleanser alongside our Hydrating Mist, 3-in-1 Moisturiser and Night Serum in our GLOSSYBOX Skincare Hydrate & Cleanse Set. This ultimate skincare set for glowing, hydrating skin is worth £58 – but is ready and waiting to be bought for only £36! That’s a massive saving of £22!


Eye Boost Cream

I had to save the best for last! This fabulously flawless, lightweight eye cream has been my go to for the past year! Fast absorbing, a little goes a long way and feels so luxurious (and all without the luxurious high price tag too!).

Reducing the appearance of dark circles (thanks to the elderflower extract) and depuffing your under-eye area, this cream leaves you looking and feeling fresh and bright. Red seaweed creates a protective barrier that locks in moisture​ and eyebright plant extract works to refresh tired, puffy eyes​. 

How to use: Apply morning and night. Apply three small dots to your under eye area then gently pat the Eye Boost Cream in and up towards your temples.

This Eye Boost Cream sits alongside our Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser and Night Serum in the GLOSSYBOX Sleep & Refresh Skincare Set. With an RRP of £46, you can start your perfect evening skincare regime with this set – and for only £24!

You know how people say putting on your favourite clothes can instantly boost or change your mood? Well that's how I feel when I put on my favourite makeup. Makeup isn't to cover up, it's to show off our personality - and I love how everyone does their makeup in their own unique way! I never leave the house without a tinted lip balm in hand, and just like everyone right now, I love a good dupe!
