The month of May is a great time to prepare your Summer beauty essentials and the new GlowwBox really helps to inspire you. GlowwBox seems to get better each month and their product picking skills are admirable.
Firstly, included in their May beauty box and worn in the pictures, is the Nyx Nail Polish in Pastel Yellow. It’s such a flattering colour and a perfect pastel piece for summer.
The Montagne Jeunesse Face Masques were a treat to try out starting with the Avocado Oil & Walnut Exfoliating Face Masque. It had a lovely natural scent and large sized granules. After leaving it on for 15 mins and being completely dried down, it washed off with ease. It left my face feeling moisturised and not dried out.
Using the Urban Veda Radiance Exfoliating Facial Polish as part of my daily wash has been nice. Being big on exfoliating this summer beauty essential is a must.
Also included in the beauty box, is the Nyx matte lipstick in ‘Perfect Red’ and I do love a good red. For fuller lips, I actually prefer a matte finish to a glossy one as they suit better. This lipstick was quite moisturising and didn’t dry out despite being on for more than half the day.
The Lipcote lipstick sealer honestly didn’t personally win me over. I found it weird to apply, like using a nail varnish brush, and it had a tingly sensation on application. Also, because I’m quite good at keeping lipstick on throughout the day without reapplying (yes, even after eating), it is not so much a product that I’m in need of. However, the concept of a top coat for lasting lipstick if your lips require it in the heat, is still cute. Otherwise the rest of the beauty box are definitely summer beauty essentials.
In other beauty news, GlowwBox will be launching their big summer special edition in July. When they’ll be collaborating with L’Oreal’s premium brand Mizani to provide 7 fabulous products. It’ll be a limited edition so be sure to sign up asap to receive yours.
