I hope the New Year is treating you well so far. I’m stunned that we’re already halfway through the month? How did that happen? I thought January was supposed to go by slowly! Either way, it’s time for another Glossybox review and I’m so excited to share this month’s goodies with you. Before I begin, I’ve included some information about what Glossybox actually is, how much it costs and all that jazz below. If you already know all of this, feel free to carry on scrolling!

This month’s theme is all about ditching those January blues and creating a new and revitalising beauty regime to prepare us for the year ahead! I couldn’t think of a better time of year to discover a handful of new beauty products. I’ve definitely been staying well within my comfort zone when it comes to my current skincare routine- it’s time for a change! January’s box includes five amazing goodies, (four of which are full-size), to help us achieve that dreamy “no-makeup makeup look”.


Bybi – Strawberry Booster – RRP £12

I absolutely love using oils and serums so the Strawberry Booster from Bybi Beauty caught my eye straight away! Made from 100% Cold Pressed Strawberry Seed Oil, this product is the ultimate skin-softener. Rich in antioxidants and omega 3 and 6, it’s perfect for those with dry or flakey skin (especially if the winter weather has been treating you and your face poorly). Also, it’s created from upcycled seeds from the juice industry – what an amazing concept! It smells very subtly of strawberries which is just so refreshing first thing in the morning. I was worried it would be greasy but my skin practically absorbs this stuff in no time at all. It leaves my face feeling SO soft and hydrated, I cannot get enough of it. I will definitely be repurchasing this product, it’s just fabulous. Also a great tip is to add this to your moisturisers, serums or balms for an extra hydration hit!


Basic Beauty – Tweezers – RRP £15.50

Next up, we have some tweezers from Basic Beauty! I have to admit, I definitely don’t need another pair of tweezers but these are just so cute! I love the shape of them as it makes plucking ten times easier! I also like that they have an easy-grip design because there’s no way I want to slip up whilst performing brow surgery thank you very much. Also, they’re pink – what’s not to love?


ModelCo – Clear Brow Gel – RRP £14

I flipping love this brand! I religiously use their highlighters so I’m always keen to try anything else that they do. The Clear Brow Gel from ModelCo couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve literally just run out of my usual go to brow gel so I was really excited to put this to the test! It’s vegan and cruelty-free which is always a bonus. It’s designed to work alongside other brow products or all by itself, which I love! I personally like to use a pomade so it’s been perfect for setting my brows in place after I’ve filled them in. It doesn’t leave them feeling crispy or rock hard either which is fabulous as I cannot stand that straw-like texture. It’s a yes from me!


Beauty Pro – CBD Oil Infused Mask – RRP £5.95

If you haven’t heard all of the hype for CBD oil products, where have you been because it sounds kinda peaceful there?! The Beauty Pro CBD Oil Infused Sheet Mask is designed to leave skin feeling deeply hydrated and revitalised. It’s the perfect solution for those days where your skin looks and feels like it needs a real boost! Not only does it help to calm and soothe your complexion, but it also reduces the appearance of angry blemishes! It contains Lavender which makes it a great mask to use before bedtime! I will definitely be buying more of these, I absolutely loved it.


Context – Micro-derm Regenerator – RRP £6.50 (Full-Size Worth £27)

I didn’t actually know what this was until I gave the back of the product a good read. The Context Micro-Derm Regenerator is actually both a cleanser and exfoliator in one! It’s designed to remove dead skin cells for a brighter and complexion as well as to protect it using key ingredients such as; macadamia, sunflower and Vitamins A, C and E. I’ve actually really enjoyed giving this a try. My skin feels much softer and it definitely looks brighter and clearer. However, I probably won’t repurchase this as it’s on the pricey side plus I actually have some great cleansers that cost much less. That being said, it’s still a great product and I’m glad that I had the opportunity to test it out.


Nakd Salted Caramel Fruit & Nut Bar

An extra little treat was included in the January Glossybox in the form of a delicious Salted Caramel Fruit & Nut Bar from Nakd! I literally ate this as soon as I’d got a photo of it. Self restraint…what’s that? It was delicious though and I will definitely be buying some more for the snack cupboard!


I’m so happy with the January Glossybox edit! It’s been a pretty tough start to the year for me, so receiving this box of goodies really cheered me up. We received four full-size products, a deluxe mini and an extra tasty treat too! I love the way that all of the products work well together, i.e. the tweezers and the brow gel and the oil, mask and cleanser too! It’s the perfect self-care package, which I think lots of people need in January. The total value of the products together, is £53.95, which is slightly less than last month but it’s still great value. I loved having the opportunity to try out some products that I’d never seen before from some brands that I’d never heard of before! I will be repurchasing a couple of bits too – I flipping loved the oil and the face mask and I need more in stock ASAP! Are you subscribed to Glossybox or any other beauty boxes?
