May GLOSSYBOX - Trending Beauty

This month Glossybox is titled Trendy Beauty and it is all about embracing high-end beauty trends.  Featuring five full-sized products, inside the box is everything from mineral makeup, nail care and skin care which have all been chosen to keep you 'en-vogue'.

The first item from the box comes from Beauty Kitchen and it is the Netruline Natural 0% Petroleum Lip Treatment.   It is said that 2019 will become all about sustainable beauty and one which is already on the case is Beauty Kitchen.  This Lip Treatment is made with 100% natural ingredients and it works to moisturise and protect your lips for up to 8 hours.

As well as the balm being 100% natural, the packaging is also 100% recyclable and is made from recycled tinplate.  It retails for £2.99 and is an amazing alternative to other brands.

Next is a Rose Mineral Blush from Annabelle Minerals and again, mineral makeup is very much on trend right now and it is something I have been trying for a good few months.  Made from natural and lightweight ingredients, this blush is suitable for all skin types and it also helps to heal, soothe and protect your complexion.

Formulated with 4 mineral ingredients that help to maintain healthy skin, I really like the pinkness of the blush and love the fact it is 100% organic.  It has an RRP £12.50.

Mudmasky is a brand I have come to know through beauty boxes and over time I have used a few products from the range.  Inside this months Glossybox is the Aftermask Vitamin Serum.  This serum is described as being at the forefront of an up-and-coming trend.  It is the first skincare product in the world that has been designed to be used after a facemask, it nourishes your complexion with vitamins your skin will be craving - especially after an intense clay, charcoal and peel off treatment.

This serum is lightweight, it uses ingredients such as Himanthalia Elongata which is known to balance your skin's pH as well as helping to restore the skin’s moisture levels as well as to provide high levels of Vitamins A, C and E along with essential amino acids and other natural minerals. Himanthalia Elongata also helps to balance your skin’s pH. Also included is Sea Fennel, Rose Water and Dulce, all of which are vitamin packed and help to protect and nurture the skin.

When it comes to makeup, Barry M is one of those brands I go through stages of using.  Within this months Glossybox, we have the Chisel Cheeks Contour Cream Kit.  Contouring is one of those trends you either love or hate and it shows no sign of going away.

For 2019, it is said to be time for forgetting that over-sculpted look and instead focus on subtle definition. To that end, Barry M have created this palette which includes 6 super blendable, professional cream shades in both light and dark shades and depending on your skin tone, there should be a shade which works perfectly for you.  This palette has an RRP £7.99

The final item in my box comes from Nailberry and it is the Little Treasure Nourishing Cuticle Oil.  I do the best I can to look after my nails and that also includes my cuticles, but using an oil is something I have never been too good at.

It uses concentrated Sweet Almond Oil which is known to protect and repair both the nails and cuticles against peeling, dryness and cracking.  Then there is Vitamins A, E, B1, B2 & B6 which richly hydrate the nails and the cuticles.  When used, Little Treasures imparts a subtle scent of lemons which is just divine.  This Oil has an RRP £17.

Putting all of these products together, it makes for one great box again from Glossybox.
