It's been a while since my last beauty box review but September's limited edition Glossybox in collaboration with Red Magazine deserves a special mention:
Beauty director Annabel Meggesan has put together a selection of her favourite products and each and every single one is so well chosen. September is often seen as a new start so I was particularly excited to try the Hydro Face Mask and bonus sample of the new Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal purifying glow mask. After a few months of sunshine and pollution my skin was definitely in need some TLC and the 2 sachets made for a lovely pampering Sunday evening.
As we move into Autumn our make up typically gets heavier and as someone who loved the original Too Faced better than sex mascara I'm really excited to see how the new waterproof version will perform. The formula is enriched with collagen to thicken and lengthen and as the original was one of my all time favourites for volume and drama I've a feeling this one will become just as much of an everyday staple. Also included is a Rodial smokey eye pen as a nod to the 90s kohled waterline which is making a comeback this season.
Another favourite is the Philosophy amazing grace firming body lotion. I could smell this as soon as I opened the box and loved the delicate blend of light floral and powdery notes. Finally there's a bottle of Revlon gel envy diamond top coat. Gel nails have been such a trend this year and although I've yet to try them out for myself this promises to transform any regular nail polish by giving it a more salon like shine and longer staying power.
Usually with beauty boxes there's at least one item that I don't like but I think Glossybox and Red Magazine have chosen so well and I'm genuinely excited to try each and every single product this month.
