Glossybox - January.

As we enter a new year, Glossybox bring us the new 'detox' box*.

Paul Mitchell - Super Strong Daily Shampoo
£11.50 / 300ml
Paul Mitchell seems to be a highly rated brand, especially in the US. I can't use SLS on my hair or it really irritates it. Unfortunately this has SLS in it so I will be passing this on to someone else.

Elemis Fresh Skin - Glow Facial Exfoliator
£12 / 100ml
The Elemis Fresh Skin range has been created and more geared towards teen to mid twenties skin.
This has a faintly sweet, fresh orange scent. It contains cherry powder and jojoba beads to exfoliate the skin. It also has mandarin and aniseed which helps with the appearance of the skin.
I actually really like this product and will definitely be looking into more of the range. I always saw Elemis as an older brand but it's really good they market products for the younger audience.

Monu - Aromatic Mask
£24.95 / 100ml
Monu is a brand that Glossybox first introduced me to. They've since popped up in numerous boxes and I've loved pretty much everything I've tried from them.
This is a natural clay mask that contains beeswax and coconut oil. So it really hydrates the skin. It says it's 'warming' but it's not all that noticeable.
Using this after a good exfoliating leaves my skin super cleansed and feeling absolutely wonderful!

Duck Island Limited - Body Lotion
£24.95 / 2 x 250ml
This body lotion is scented with mandarin and bergamot. It's really refreshing.
It's a thin formula that's mineral oil and paraben free. It sinks into the skin quickly and dries completely. It doesn't leave behind a tacky layer like some lotions.

Jason - Lips Bee Healthier
£1.99 / 4.6g
I've been religiously using Carmex since I got it many months ago. I still have the potted version and the mint tube but I've gone off the scent of the mint recently.
For such a cheap lip balm this contains really good ingredients like beeswax, vitamin E, green tea extract, organic aloe vera gel, Shea butter and sweet almond oil. It's also got peppermint oil which scents the balm, it gives it a faint smell of delicious After Eights.
It's quite a thick formula but it feels light on the lips and not to tacky. This is a really great find.

Glossybox Sleep Mask
A nice little extra that I've been using the past couple of nights, since the snow makes it so light outside.

Overall I think this is a good box to start the year with. It's a nice little selection of goodies to pamper yourself and pep your skin up.

£10 (plus p&p) per month
