Glossybox was one of the first subscription box services to launch, so naturally they know how to curate a good box, and their recent Limited Edition box, produced in collaboration with Makeup Artist and Burberry Makeup Artistic Consultant, Wendy Rowe, is fabulous.
The Glossybox Wendy Rowe Edit was released on 14th November priced at £35 for subscribers and £40 for non-subscribers, and nestled inside the gorgeous packaging is a selection of Wendy’s favourite beauty products, from nourishing skincare to makeup must-haves.
The first product is a full sized Windle and Moodie Invisible Day and Night Cream (60ml, RRP £18.50), which on first glance I thought was a face cream. It’s actually a hair cream, designed to infuse the hair with moisture, restore shine and protect from UV damage.
Next up is a pack of Sarah Chapman Skinesis SOS Spot Stickers (RRP £16), a genius solution for those pesky breakouts. When you feel that telltale tingle of a spot developing pop on one of these stickers containing salicylic acid and vitamin C then let it work its magic, calming and shrinking the spot.
Moving on is a 10ml sample of Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask (60ml, RRP £95.50) which promises to hydrate and brighten the skin. The full sized product is eye-wateringly expensive so this sample is a great way of seeing if the product works for you, and you will get a good few uses from it.
Next up is another face mask; the Roloxin Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque (RRP £50 for 10). This single use mask features a matrix of hydrophilic and hydrophobic silica particles, which shrinks as the mask dries, to instantly lift, tone and tighten. Just activate the mask by squeezing it then apply the treatment all over your skin for no more than ten minutes. Rinse off thoroughly to reveal a more luminous, youthful complexion.
I love a face oil so I am really excited to try the 2.5ml Rodin Face Oil sample (30ml, RRP £105), a sublime blend of 9 essential oils and lavender oils that calms and nourishes stressed out skin. This is another high end product and although the sample is small, because you need so little the potent oil should last a week or so.
Next we have a trio of Decléor products including 50ml travel sizes of the Gommage 1000 Grains Body Scrub (200ml, RRP £26) and Decléor Aroma Confort Système Corps Moisturising Body Milk (250ml, RRP £32), and 5ml of the Decléor Aromessence Neroli Oil Serum (15ml, RRP £45). The Decléor Aromessences were the first facial oils I ever tried and I’ve been a convert to Decléor ever since. Their products are gentle and effective, really nourishing your skin from head to toe.
Last but not least are two products from the Burberry makeup range; a full size Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base (30ml, RRP £34) and a duluxe mini Burberry Kisses in Nude Beige (full size RRP £25). The Luminous Fluid sounds great as it can be applied before makeup, mixed with foundation, or used as a highlighter, and the lipstick has such a lovely creamy texture. The packaging is so luxurious too.
Sadly the GlossyBox x Wendy Rowe Edit was a limited edition box and unsurprisingly sold out incredibly quickly. Along with a couple of my own beauty favourite there are plenty of new discoveries, and I love the fact that all the beauty bases of skincare, makeup and hair care have been covered.
