The Glossybox Trending Beauty Edit is May’s offering from Glossy HQ and they’ve kindly gifted it to me to review. There are 5 full-size products inside that each embrace high-end beauty trends.
Now I tend not to keep up with beauty trends too much (bad blogger), as I know by now what works for me, so I was intrigued as to what is considered on trend in the beauty world. To be honest, there’s nothing that surprised me so maybe I pay more attention than I realised, but it’s certainly a fun box with products I have enjoyed trying out.
When it comes to high-performing skincare innovations, Dr. Jart + is king! They’ve created the latest trend in masking: a shaking rubber face mask. Shake & Shot Rubber Mask is a fun, DIY rubbery modelling mask that nourishes your skin with high-potency active ingredients, leaving you with a healthy and dewy-looking complexion! Better yet, its innovative cream-to-sheet formula penetrates deeper into the skin than a traditional sheet mask, moisturising your skin quickly and effectively.
I have wanted to try one of the Dr. Jart + rubber masks for so long. I’m a bit of a face mask junkie, so I was thrilled to see this in the box. I’m not going to lie though, the creepy baby face does terrify me slightly and gives off sex doll vibes. You’re going to want to put this on when you know there’s no danger of anyone coming to the door. No-one wants to be caught with this on!
Contouring as a beauty trend is nothing new, but it’s time to put a 2019 spin on it. Forget the overly sculpted look, this year is all about subtle definition. That’s where your Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit comes in! Apply a darker shade to our cheekbones, jawline and hairline, then seamlessly blend it with a lighter shade to smooth out the look and subtly define your features.
I’m the first to admit that I suck at contouring … I always end up looking a muddy mess, but that’s not to say I don’t try. I’m glad that subtle sculpting is now the thing as that’s what I do. My wish is never to change the look of my face shape but to gently enhance my features. Cream contour does scare me a little but I’ve found this nice and easy to use and it blends out well.
2019 is all about sustainable beauty! Beauty Kitchen have created this 0% petroleum sustainable lip treatment that is more effective and less greasy than petroleum jelly alternatives. Made with 100% natural ingredients, this balm moisturises and protects your lips for up to 8 hours, keeping them soft, beautiful and healthy. Better yet, the packaging is 100% recyclable and made from recycled tinplate – good for the environment, great for your lips!
I appear to have picked up a nervous habit of licking my lips when I am stressed and life events recently have left me very very stressed. I’ve kept this handy little tin with me and I’m impressed with how nice it is making my lips feel. It is definitely nicer to use than the traditional petroleum jelly competitor and it is helping me to stop licking my lips.
This serum is at the forefront of an up-and-coming beauty trend! The first skincare product in the world specially designed to be used after a facemask, it nourishes your complexion with the vitamins your skin will be craving after an intense clay, charcoal, sheet or peel off mask treatment. Simply apply a thin layer to your face after removing your mask and you’ll have soft and smooth skin!
Ok so this is genius. Sometimes my skin can feel a bit dry and tight after a face mask, so I was interested to see how this would leave my skin feeling. It definitely leaves it feeling nourished and takes away that dry feeling that I can get. This is the stand out product of the Glossybox Trending Beauty Edit for me and if you love masking like I do, you’ll love this serum.
Meet the next generation of state-of-the-art nail polish! Part of Nailberry’s revolutionary Oxygene range, this multi-award winning nail polish uses patented technology to deliver a healthier manicure without compromising on colour quality. It covers your nail with a unique film which allows air and water vapour to pass through it, ensuring your cuticles are protected, even while wearing nail polish. You’re going to look so a la mode!
I’m loving the shade of this polish as it’s pretty and quite subtle. I found it applies nicely and didn’t chip for 4 days, which is good going for me. I hadn’t tried anything from Nailberry before, but it’s definitely tempted me to see what other shades they do.
