The offer features 10 beauty must-haves handpicked by experts including Medik8, Rituals and Color Wow
When the Mirror beauty team wrote their New Year resolutions at the start of the year, these included saving money on our beauty routines by snapping up money-saving hauls, like this new one from Glossybox.
The retailer, known for its monthly beauty subscription and curated edits, has released a limited edition box of ‘Buyers Picks’ – and it could make a great Valentine’s gift or treat to yourself.
The edit has been filled with 10 beauty heroes that have been specially selected by Glossybox’s trend-expert buying team, chosen for being some of the industry’s game-changing must-haves.
Inside, beauty enthusiasts can discover a range of much-loved and viral brands from the likes of Elemis, NARS, Color Wow and Medik8, with a generous mix of skincare, hair care, makeup and body products for a head-to-toe pamper.
Worth over £132, the bumper pack is just £25 for subscribers, or £35 for non-subscribers, which is still a saving of nearly £100 overall. Subscribers also gained early access to the edit from Monday, February 5, with non-subscribers able to shop the set from midday on Wednesday, February 7.
In fact, one of the products inside is worth more than the cost of the box alone, regardless of whether you’re a subscriber. The Elemis Clarifying Clay Wash – one of three full size products in the haul – is usually £36, meaning you essentially get the rest of the products for ‘free’. Another way of looking at it is that all of the products inside work out at £3.50 each.
The Elemis wash is said to deeply cleanse pores to lift away excess oil and reduce the look of blemishes and blackheads, which is something that spot-prone shoppers have praised in reviews.
Specifically formulated for oily or blemish-prone skin, the non-drying formula is infused with Kaolin Clay, while still being gentle enough for daily use. It’s racked up over 100 reviews on the Elemis website with an overall rating of 4.8 stars.
One skincare fan wrote: “I’ve been using it for about a month and I was really surprised how it helped me with my skin type. I have oily skin so it’s always a challenge to find a proper cleanser, this one definitely works, will buy it again.”
Another added: “I love this cleanser. It lasts ages and my face feels sooo smooth afterwards, it doesn’t strip your skin and it has a nice subtle smell to it. I am prone to acne and blackheads and this has 100 % helped with those problems. I just love it.”
While a third suggested it’s ‘slightly drying’, but didn’t let it put them off the product, commenting: “I’ve only used it for one day but I feel I can already do a review! From what I have seen today it’s definitely stopped a huge amount of oil coming through for me. I have PCOS hormonal acne and oily skin and I’ve struggled to find something that really controls my oil in my T-Zone.
“The face wash did feel slightly drying so I would advise you don’t need a huge amount which I think would reducing the drying effect. Due to drying effect though I would only advise you use once a day but I don’t feel you’d need this for your evening wash. Other than that it seems to be a brilliant face wash, I’ve never had anything that can control my oil like this has done today, even whilst I’ve been cleaning not much oil coming through at all. Big thumbs up from me for anyone with PCOS oily skin.”
Also in the box, shoppers will find a Color Wow shampoo and conditioner duo, which is ideal for throwing into a wash bag for weekend getaways, as well as a full size bottle of Neal & Wolf Dry Shampoo to tame your tresses.
Those in-the-know will no doubt be excited to give the Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense a try, as well as the Nuxe Mini Very Rose Gel Mask. If you want to know the full contents of the box, you can find it below:
