I’ve been patiently awaiting the delivery of my second Glossybox, so when the postie knocked on my door at 9:30am, I fell out of bed, stood on the dog, tripped over my dressing gown an answered the door in about 5 seconds flat. Like I say, I was patiently waiting.
This month’s box was called The Edible Edit, which had beauty products inspired by super-foods inside. The total cost of the box is around £40-45, but I got it for just £10 + postage. I used 4/5 of the products that evening, and the final product is a makeup product which I used the next day.
In the box I received a Spa To You konjac sponge, Unani cleansing milk, a Vitamasoues Manuka Honey face mask, Nip + Fab Kale Fix moisturiser and theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony single eyeshadow in Matt Kumar.
Opening the konjac sponge I found that it was already soaked in a serum type substance. The sponge is really soft and is great for exfoliating. I followed the instructions on the pack of the packet and added my new cleanser, the unani cleansing milk. I cleansed and exfoliated my face with the two products simultaneously (that shaves some time off a skincare routine).
Next I used the face mask, which is a tissue face mask; I am totally buzzing off these tissue masks at the minute. They feel so refreshing and the coolness of them can help lighten dark circles, which I definitely need right now because I haven’t been sleeping well at all this week. It smells of honey and fits a lot better on your face than the larger Garnier ones. Don’t get me wrong I love the Garnier Moisture Bombs, but this Korean face mask has much nicer face proportions with regards to where they think your eyes and nose are, though I suppose Korean’s also have more petite proportions compared to Brits. Anyway, it fits nicely.
Finally I moisturised with the Nip + Fab Kale Fix moisturiser, which is quite thick, so you only need a small amount as it’s really spreadable (I put way too much on for the purpose of photography and the fact I had no idea how good it was). After I’d used all of the beauty products, my skin felt so refreshed and glowing. I could almost feel my dark circles melting away.
The last product was the single eyeshadow from theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Trimony, in the shae Matt Kumar, a deep burgundy shade. I adore the vintage style packaging on theBalm’s products. I used Matt Kumar in a makeup look with my Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Modern Renaissance palette, and blended it with shades Red Ochre, which is darker than Matt Kumar and Venetian Red, which is lighter. I thought it would give a nice autumnal burgundy look with a hint of pink. I’m really loving the burgundy look at the minute.
