Hello! I joined GlossyBox in September/October and although they have been pretty hit and miss, I can’t
seem to find the heart to cancel my subscription, as I know as soon as cancel, they’ll bring out an amazing box. Just my luck.
To welcome in 2013, the aim of the box was ‘Detox’ after a Christmas & New Year of stuffing our faces and drinking to our hearts content, what better way to celebrate the new year than a good ol’ detox.
1. ElEMIS FRESH SKIN: Skin Glow Facial Exfoliator; Sample Size.
“Developed by Elemis to accompany you from your teens to mid-twenties, the Freshskin range aims to nurture skin and help prevent premature ageing. With a deep pore cleansing action, this exfoliating facial wash combines cherry powder and jojoba beads to gently polish away dead skin cells and refine skin texture. Enriched with mandarin and aniseed your skin will appear brighter and more radiant and left feeling soft and smooth”.
Full Size: 100ml//£12
2. DUCK ISLAND LIMITED: Body Lotion; Sample.
“Stimulating the senses while capturing the aromas of the East (a fragrant combination of mandarin and bergamot), this indulgent body lotion will help you relax, while simultaneously stimulating your senses. For centuries, Eastern cultures have recognised the benefits of natural extracts- a tradition embodied by Duck Island’s paraben- and mineral oil free formulations”.
Full Size: 2 x 250ml//£24.95
3. JASON: Lips Bee Healthier; Full Size.
“The Jason brand name means ‘healer’ in Greek. The results-driven therapeutic blends of their formulas and wholesome, natural ingredients reflect this, which is why we just had to include a Jason product in our detox box. Alongside the under-eye skin, the skin on our lips shows signs of dehydration fastest. This is due to the fact that the lips only have thin surface layers of skin, which dry out faster than other areas and are exposed to dry, cold air outdoors and low humidity indoors. To prevent parched and cracked lips, this rich, natural lip balm stick combines moisture-trapping Beeswaz, Vitamin E, and green tea extract, Organic Aloe Vera Gel helps heal, soothe and prevent chapped lips, while Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil moisturise”.
Full Size: 4.6g//£1.99
4. MONU: Aromatic Mask; Sample.
“Another GLOSSYBOX detox favourite! This warming facial mask helps increase vitamin and mineral absorption, instantly renewing and invigorating your skin. Natural clay provides a deep cleanse, while stimulating and renewing cell health. Beeswax and coconut oil soften, nourish and hydrate the skin, leaving it looking boosted and radiant.
Full Size: 100ml//£24.95
5. PREMAE SKINCARE: Balance Rescue Face Tonique; Sample.
“A refreshing face toner for combination skin, this mattifies and rejuvenates congested skin. With antiseptic lemongrass and sandalwood oil as well as hydrating rose water, this alcohol-free, fragrance free solution will cut through dirt and excess oil to close pores without stripping skin of its natural oils, leaving skin feeling fresh and plump”.
Full Size: 50ml//£27.50
As a little bonus, you received a GlossyBox eye mask. Which I thought would be perfect for my 101/2 hour flight to Mexico, in June.
I love how this box is all about detoxing and refreshing the skin. Which mine definitely needs during the winter months.
