This month Glossy Box offers its subscribers 5 full sized beauty products to play with. Minus the blusher, but that's only because I'm more of a bronze & highlight girl, this has to be my favourite monthly subscription box to date.
For anyone looking to subscribe to a beauty box, my advice it to do some research prior to tapping in those card details and clicking the confirm button. Whilst I rave monthly about this pink box, it might not be for you and there's plenty of other options out there. The best way to get to the bottom of which box is for you, is to search on instagram using #GlossyBoxUK (add other box name to #) or to search for the brand on Facebook and see what the box brands subscribers are saying each month!
Whilst it might not be the prettiest packaging, you sure can't miss it. Dr Paw Paw Original Balm is a multipurpose balm and will fit perfectly inside your makeup bag. Glossy Box boasts that it can be used to cure a multitude of sins and can be used for skin, lips, hair & along the top of your cheekbone for a natural highlight. Whilst I'm not a fan of balms in replacement of my pressed powder highlighter, if you're on holiday and not wearing any foundation, this is perfect and will reflect the light, giving you a healthy chiseled glow!
Dr Paw Paw's is heavily endorsed by celebrities, but from my days as a stylist, almost every makeup artist I knew had a tube of this in their kit, so you know this product means business!
Whilst the world has been going mad for brows, it's important to give them a little tlc behind closed doors and without any makeup. Take the tiniest amount of Dr Paw Paw's original balm and smear onto your brows before bed, and I promise they'll feel super nourished in the morning, and be ready and waiting for whatever your makeup demands you do to them!
The combination of aloe vera, olive oil and pawpaw, nourishes and smoothes skin, and most importantly, it's cruelty-free and completely vegan friendly.
Available on the hight street at the likes of Boots & Superdrug, Sleek Makeup have a great range of affordable products, workable with most skin types. Whilst it's small and compact, their all day soiree palate included in the months Glossy Box UK, is designed to suit light-medium skin tones. This will see you through summer, with glowy tones and highlights for your eyes and a pop of colour for your cheeks. All your missing is your trusty mascara and tinted moisturiser and you're ready to go.
This gentle cleansing milk is based on nutritious natural oils, purifying and protecting your skin by removing any impurities left behind from your days wear of makeup. It smells quite sweet, and smells like something that would be used for a spa treatment (not a bad thing in my eyes!).
Milk cleansers generally tend to be much kinder to skin and don't have that awful paint stripper effect. Use morning and night by applying a small amount to the tips of your fingers and gently massage into the skin, rinsing with clean, warm water.
