September Glossy Box Review


My favourite little package arrived the other day and I knew straight away that it was September's GLOSSYBOX!! I mean, who can miss a black box covered in polka dots? If you are new to GLOSSYBOX then let me tell you all about it: it is a monthly beauty subscription box that delivers 5+ deluxe to full-sized beauty and skincare products right to your front door. It costs £10 a month and it is available in the UK, France, Germany, USA, Canada, Sweeden and Norway but the contents in the box all differ. Now, let's jump right in to September 2018 GLOSSYBOX (UK version) 

The September 2018 GLOSSYBOX is themed as 'Back to School' and is 'filled with 6 products that will help you to prep and get organised this September, whether you are heading back to work, university or tackling the dreaded school run'. The contents of the box can sometimes vary, here is the full rundown of what I received this month.

Wet Ones - Be Fresh Antibacterial Wipes
The first item in the box is one that I find very handy even though it is not directly a beauty product as they are not for removing makeup, so I could see why some people would be disappointed after receiving this, however, I am not. This product is very practical and useful to keep in your handbag and whip out whenever you need a wipe. It says that this product cleans 99.9% of bacteria, they are gentle on the skin & have been dermatologically tested, what else could you want/need in a wipe? These retail for £1.19 from Boots.

BeautyPro - Detoxifying Bubbling Mask with Activated Charcoal  
This was one of products that got me most excited about when I opened by box. This is a facial mask that contains charcoal and AHA complex which are both great for cleaning your skin and getting dirt out of those pores. It is perfect for anyone who has acne prone skin and the product is self is dermatologically tested and the brand does not test on animals (yasss). This is great for purifying and soothing the skin from everyday dirt, and the sheet is big enough to fit most face sizes and shapes.
All you have to do is leave the mask on clean skin and sit back and wait for it to bubble up to create a micro massage which works deep into your pores and cleans away blackheads. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash your face with water afterwards. After using this my face felt clean but not dry, and it was also smooth to touch, plus it had a pleasant smell to it too. 
Personally, I love face masks and whenever I get to try a new one out I get so excited. I loved the ingredients in this one too, and it is a full size product that retails for £4.95 on

Bang Beauty - Eyebrow Cream in Auburn 
This eyebrow cream was another product that got me excited in this months box, it comes in a lovely looking box and inside is a nice looking glass pot which is complimented with a tiny angled brush. This packaging throws me off though as the glass pot makes it look like there is so much more product in there then there actually is. 
The brow cream itself works well and it lasts for a while and I like that it comes with its own little brush to apply, even if it isn't the best brush. The brush is soft but almost a little too soft for this type of application. The colour that was sent to me was called Auburn which is a warm light toned brown, however it was too light for me so I am going to gift it to one of my friends.    
This is a full sized product and it retails for £16.80 on

Grow Gorgeous Scalp Detox 
This is a scalp detox that helps remove impurities that block your hair roots from growing due to build-up of oil. I sometimes suffer with extra oil in my hair and many problems can come from that. This product smells gorgeous and it has a strong, sweet, feminine perfume smell to it, it's gorgeous!! 
You are meant to use this product as a pre-wash treatment on your scalp, 1-2 times a week and it will help to clean and unclog any of those pesky blocked pores that might be causing disruption of hair growth. The one thing I did notice about this is that it does not foam up so you might end up using a lot of until you know that your scalp is clean but you do not have to wait around like you do when you use a hair mask. 
This product is a mini size at 50ml and it retails for £7.37, whereas the full size is 190ml and retails for £28 on

Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo Lip Liner in Rosewood
This lip liner was the most expensive product in the box and if I am being honest, I have not been the biggest fan of ModelCo products as the ones I have tried have been average and did nothing to blow me away, however, this lip liner, I really liked. 
The pencil is really buttery and slides on to the lips really easily, plus it stays on for a long time. It is a matte lip liner and is good at making your lips look fuller than they are. The colour is a muted pink-red colour that is lovely for everyday wear.
The packaging of this product is lovely too, even though it is hot pink and hurts if you stare at it for too long ha! 
This lip liner is 1.5g and is a full sized product, which again, is cruelty free and retails for £25  at 

Daily Concepts Your Facial Mini Scrubber
The final product in the box I was unable to get a photo of as I got too excited and ripped it open without thinking! However, this is a facial scrubber cloth that is amazing for when you are travelling. It is made using Soy and natural cotton base layer which creates a really rich lather. It is used for cleansing the face and getting rid of any dirt in the pores. It has a cute little pocket that you can put your fingers in and it is also cruelty free, along with most of the other products in the box. After I used it my skin felt so smooth and clean and it definitely exfoliated my skin too!
This was obviously a mini product and it retails for £8.85 from 

Overall, this months box was really good, it is only my third box from them but I have started calling it my little box of happiness. For just £10 a month it is such a bargain!! The products in this months box added up to a total of £64.16, so you definitely get your moneys worth. I would recommend this monthly subscription box to anyone of any age who loves beauty as much as I do!
