Glossybox - Beauty SOS Edition

This month, Glossybox has curated a box which is full of emergency supplies! Featuring Haircare, skincare and makeup, this Beauty SOS Edition contains five essential products which will come to your rescue during party season.

Now, this box has proven to be so popular that it has sold out, it could be because the beauties over at GB HQ surprised us all with a HUDA Beauty Matte Lipstick in every box.  That said, you can still subscribe to Glossybox to grab yourself a classic box for just £8 by using the code NOVEMBER at the check out. It goes without saying that I absolutely love this months box and every product included is one that I will use.

The first product is of course from Huda Beauty and it is hard not to be a tad excited about seeing this inside my Glossybox.  Huda also features in the Glossybox Advent Calendar, which I unboxed here.  This liquid matte in shade Girlfriend and it is described as being a light apricot nude, but to me, it is a warm brown with slight yellow undertones.  I really like the formula of this liquid matte, it applies like an absolute dream with its lightweight formula and once it has been applied, the colour intensifies before drying.

Infused with antioxidants, this formula is vegan-friendly as well as being cruelty-free also contains an exclusive complex which helps maintain hydration.  It sets as matte, but not uncomfortably so and having worn this one quite a few times since I got my hands on it, it has made me want to shop the entire collection!

Next up within my box is a Balancing Skin Concentrate from YourGoodSkin.  Made by Boots, this brand is described as being clinically proven and developed by dermatologists.
Your Good Skin Balancing Concentrate
 Using a combination of Green Tea and Vitamin C, this unique combination helps to improve skin texture, moisture, radiance, oiliness and skin tone evenness in just 28 days.  I have used this product before and really liked how it made my skin feel (full review here). On the skin, the lightweight texture absorbs really quickly.

Then we have the Context Micro-Derm Regenerator and it isn't a brand or a product I have come across until now.  Described as being a 2-in-1 cleanser with a difference.

Using professional microdermabrasion crystals, this product gently exfoliates and polishes the skin without being overly abrasive.  Using powerful antioxidants which protect cells and help to fight free radicals, it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated after just a few uses.  It is also cruelty and fragrance free.

One brand I am really loving getting to know right now is Living Proof.  I am slowly working my way through an incredible box of products but within this months Glossybox is the Living Proof Restore Mask Treatment.
Living Proof Restore Treatment Mask
This treatment mask, like the rest of the range, has been developed by scientists and hair stylists and as well as being cruelty-free, this mask works to restore damaged hair cuticles and moisture levels. The mask also works to repel dirt which also means in the long run, you might need to use shampoo less.

The final item within this months box comes from Styl London and it is the Eaton Eyeshadow Palette. Cruelty-free and pocket-sized, it is described as having endless possibilities.

Incredibly pigmented, this palette uses a combination of matte and sheen shades and for me, this is an incredible Autumn palette and I love the bronze shades which I always edge towards on any palette and I love that it is the perfect size for travelling with. I have never come across the brand before but apparently, STYlondon was launched in 2015 exclusively by the high-end department store, Harvey Nichols.

This month, Glossybox have included a treat inside the box and it comes in the form of a Chloe perfume sample.  I adore perfume samples, so I am always happy to see one in any package I receive because it gives you a good insight into how well, or not, that perfume will work for you.
Chloe Eau De Parfum - Nomade
I have Nomade and it has notes of Mirabelle Plum, Freesia and Oak Moss and it is a scent that I prefer once it has dried down rather than from its initial spritz and as a fruity floral fragrance, it is one which suits me and is a scent I would definitely look to purchasing a full size of.

I think this month Glossybox is simply brilliant.  I love the products have been included, I really like the theme and I also love that I have been introduced to brands and products that I haven't come across until now.    What do you think?
