As you know, this month we're celebrating 10 years of GLOSSYBOX... And with us having a different stunning theme each month, there's definitely been a lot to get excited about over the past decade!

But with so many boxes, so many themes and thousands of beauty buys to discover inside each, is it possible for Team Glossy to choose their favourite? It's certainly going to be a tough task...


Team Glossy’s Favourite Ever GLOSSYBOX And Why!

The girls on Team Glossy love receiving their GLOSSYBOXes just as much as all other Glossies do! But, with beauty boxes being dispatched for 10 years now, there have been SO MANY different edits. We ask Team Glossy which has been their favourite, and why...

Sophie Page, Beauty Writer 

The best part of lockdown in February this year was receiving my GLOSSYBOX! (It’s the best part of every month tbh!) The themed box had a cute retro design - looking like a stereo cassette! #throwback! And this has to be my favourite GLOSSYBOX EVER! 

It made me so happy! Firstly, for the design and secondly it was worth just under £100! Just in time for Valentine's Day, it included three lip products too! Including my favourite, the Perfecting Rose Sugar Lip Scrub by Avant Skincare! This box was full of plenty of other luxury products and brands to! We also received a gorgeous seductive red lip and cheek balm by Nudestix - the creamiest balm to exist! And, one of my favourite brands, Bubble T, made an appearance in the form of the sweetest smelling hand cream - Peach Bellini, which was developed exclusively for GLOSSYBOX!! I loved that I got to try something new too. 

A facial massage tool was also inside from Glow-On-5th and a lip mask by Steve Laurant. I had not used either of these before and now I use them all the time! My favourite thing about the February 2021 box was the tagline that went alongside it. "Sing, Dance, Love, Repeat". This has been my mantra since coming out of lockdown!

My favourite box is definitely theGLOSSYBOX x Grazia Best of Beauty 2021 Limited Edition! The product line up is a who's who of beauty superstars including my favourite Ole Henrikson Eye Cream and the iconic Illamasqua Beyond Powder Highlighter. Plus I love the box design, and you really cant go wrong with £150 worth of products for £45!

My favourite box ever was in February 2019 - so long ago!! It was literally the cutest box ever and the products were amazing too. I have two in my bedroom for storage! The brush is still in my makeup bag, I ended up buying a full size Alien perfume after it being a sample in the box and who doesn't love a bit of HUDA Beauty!

My favourite GLOSSYBOX to date has to be the Advent Calendar 2020 Limited Edition! At a time when we where all in lockdown and Christmas was looking bleak, the GLOSSYBOX Christmas Advent Calendar managed to bring me a bit of joy during December! The design of the box was unique and all the products included where a great mix of makeup, haircare and skincare, making it 100% worth the money! I even used my Glossy credits I had saved up over the year, so it felt like a little reward to myself for Christmas!

Polly Shepherd, Beauty Writer

My favourite GLOSSYBOX was the 'Let The Sun Shine' edit in May this year! I loved the selection of products inside and every single item got used! The shower gel added a little bit of luxury to my daily scrub and smelled amazing, the after sun came is super handy when summer made a brief appearance (and my hastily applied sun cream wasn’t quite as diligently applied as it should have been…). The standout product however was definitely the Gold Definer Liner for instant summer make up!


Grace Walker, Beauty Writer

For me, the GLOSSYBOX x Grazia Smart Skincare Limited Edition has to be my all time favourite, purely because it is jam-packed full of skincare products. Skincare is my life so of course this was going to be a win win! It even included products and brands that I wasn’t familiar with and hadn’t tried before - so it was a great way for me to try these out. I have even ordered some of the bigger versions of the mini products that were included, that’s what this is all about; finding new favourites! From the packaging to the products, this limited edition box was an absolute winner for me!

Janet Osayande, Beauty Writer

One of my favourite boxes has to be the Fenty Beauty Limited Edition. It included a fantastic mix of products - at a reasonable price - for someone who’s been wanting to try Fenty products for some time. The Stunna Lip Paint, a long-lasting lipstick with a soft matte finish and the ideal shade of pinky nude, and the Beauty Killawatt Highlighter, which melts into your skin wonderfully and gives you the most incredible glow, were two of my favourites. The box looks amazing, and I'm sure I'll be keeping it not only for the products, but for the packaging too.

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!
