Hello 2019! I haven't made any new years resolutions so its good that the Glossybox for January is the beauty resolutions edition! Inside there are three full size products and two deluxe minis, adding up to a total value of around £120... all for just £13.25 with postage!
Glossybox works on a rolling subscription basis which costs £10 per month plus £3.25 P&P. 3 month, 6 month and 12 month subscriptions are also available and boxes work out slightly cheaper when you have a subscription this way. Each box contains at least five items and you always get value for money.
-417 Facial Micro Luffa Foaming Gel (Deluxe Mini worth £13.31)
"Add this refreshing foaming gel cleanser into your beauty regimen! Simply work the gel into damp skin in circular motions to gently exfoliate and remove your makeup. Formulated with minerals from the Dead Sea, rare plant extracts and vitamins, its invigorating formula will leave your skin feeling clean, soft and fresh."
I love receiving cleansers in beauty boxes, it means I never have to buy any! This one sounds really nice and considering that this is only a deluxe mini, it's actually quite a generous size.
Avant Skincare Deluxe Hyaluronic Acid Vivifying Face & Eye Night Cream (Full size worth £98)
"All those late December nights call for a skincare saviour and we've got the perfect solution. This delightful full-size anti-ageing moisturiser is formulated with the deeply hydrating wonder ingredient hyaluronic acid! It will rejuvenate tired eyes, promote an even skin tone and minimise the appearance of fine lines and pesky pores! It also has a gorgeous fresh scent and instantly smooths your skin without adding shine."
Glossybox are definitely spoiling us with this, look at that pricetag! This sounds like such a a wonder product, I can't wait to give it a try.
Batiste Dry Shampoo & Damage Control (Deluxe mini worth £1.50)
"Is your hair feeling weak, damaged, frizzy, dry or flat? Say hello to these new dry shampoos infused with strengthening keratin, smoothing coconut, moisturising avocado or plumping collagen. They'll refresh, repair, soften, hydrate and revive your tresse, leaving your hair feeling clean and fabulous! What's more, the spray is invisible and feels lightweight on your hair."
Batiste is my go to brand when it comes to dry shampoo so it'll come in handy to have a mini size of this new version.
Hask Argan Oil Repairing Deep Conditioner (full size worth £2.49)
"These deeply nourishing treatments infused with argan oil, keratin protein, kalahari melon oil or bamboo extracts will repair, soften, smooth and strengthen your hair. The clever formulas infuse your hair cuticles with hydration for nourished, shiny tresses. Simply massage a generous amount into your hair, relax for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse."
I'm not a fan of hair products in beauty boxes but I know that I'm in a minority with that. Hair products don't excite me the way makeup and skincare does... (Dry shampoo is an exception.) I'll probably pass this on to someone who will actually use it.
Wilkinson Sword Beauty Eyebrow Shaper (Full size worth £3.99)
"This must-have beauty tool can be used to shape brows and to gently remove fine hairs from your face. It comes with a protective cap for on-the-go use, as well as a precision cap for precise eyebrow shaping. Cleanse first, hold your skin taut then gently glide the razor in the direction of hair growth."
This is what I'm most intrigued by. As well as using it on brows and fine hairs, you can also use it to exfoliate the skin so this is a multi-use product. Yes, I'm all for this.
Being totally honest, I was a little disappointed by this month's Glossybox. Makeup is my favourite thing to find in beauty boxes so I was miffed to not find a single makeup products in this month's edition, especially since I cancelled my Birchbox and I knew that January's had a full size highlighter in it.
But oh, the sneak peak for February's Glossybox more than makes up for no makeup in this box! All subscribers will receive a Huda Beauty Lip Contour Pencil worth £16 in next month's box in one of two shades.
