Glossybox 9th Birthday Edition

Can you believe that Glossybox is 9 years old! To celebrate, this incredible box has been released to mark the occasion and I absolutely love everything about it, especially the amazing bow which sits on the front of the box.Glossybox 9th Birthday Edition
Inside the box there is five products which completes a mixture of makeup, skincare and bodycare and of the five products, four of them are full size!

First out of the box is a sneak peak into the world of the newly launched Glossybox Skincare range, something you will have seen on my blog earlier this week here in all its glory and as you might expect, everything about it is pink!.  Glossybox 9th Birthday Edition
This cream is described as being the ultimate treatment. Using Elderflower Extract, Eyebright Plant Extract and Red Seaweed and together they work to reduce bags, dark circles and refresh tired looking eyes all without irritation.

The second item within the box comes from Huda Beauty with the Demi Matte Cream Lipstick and there will be a choice of 10 different shades in boxes, so you might not get the same one as your friend, but I love that there are different shades.Glossybox 9th Birthday Edition
I have shade Sheikha which is a deep rose shade and I happen to really like it. On the lips it dries to a satin finish which creates a nice sheen without being overly tacky or sticky to the touch. The doe foot applicator picks up the right about of product and helps with the application, without needing to constantly swipe back and forth for coverage.

The next item in the box comes from Molton Brown and it is the deluxe mini of the beautifully scented Delicious Rhubarb and Rose Bath and Shower Gel.Glossybox 9th Birthday Edition
Using Notes of Tart Rhubarb and Rose are balanced by zesty Yuzu Fruit and sparkling Grapefruit, this gel makes for quite the refreshing and rejuvenating scent that I absolutely love. To date, this is my favourite scent from the range.

Keeping with the pink theme, which I am sure by now you will have noticed, we have the HD Wonder Sponge from Brushworks which I have used before and actually quite like to have as a back up for my other sponges.Glossybox 9th Birthday Edition
Described as being  a latex-free, three-in-one design for professional makeup results. With three sides to use, the advice is to use the large, rounded sides to apply foundation, the flat side for expert contouring, and the pointed tip for precision tasks around the eyes and nose.

Finally from Steve Laurant we have the Vogue Lip Liner which is a great pinky nude shade which works well with most of the lipsticks I own and wear regularly.Glossybox 9th Birthday Edition
Described as being completely waterproof, so no transferring or bleeding all day long, it glides onto the lips without dragging.

I think this is a great box and I love that there is a theme to it - birthday and pink! Glossybox is, as I am sure you are aware is a membership subscription service and it costs as little as £8.50 per month. Again, this particular box has sold out, but the September box is ready to be snapped up.

  1. Glossybox launched in the UK in May 2011 so I wonder why they are celebrating their birthday in August? I was a subscriber in the first couple of years when they sent high end products. Nars Orgasm was in their first box.

  2. Wow what a lovely box, I wish they were still in SA!

  3. This is actually a really good box, there boxes don't usually wow me but I'm sold! x
