Well hello there!
For today's post we have the classic monthly Glossy Box Openings which I have been doing for almost a year now and that is crazy. My little space on the internet is almost a year old as well and I have had an amazing year with my blog I cannot wait for the future. This month's Glossy Box has a theme of going back to school and to help you get prepped and organised.

They have put this mask in the box to revive the skin for people going back to school, I am actually really excited to try this as I love face masks and have been wanting to try a bubbling mask. This mask also has activated charcoal in it which is good for blemish prone skin, and is also good for detoxing your skin, refining pores and reducing oil. It will work deep into your pores and will also clean away blackheads. I don't know about you but this sounds great to me! This retails for £4.95 which isn't the cheapest mask for 1 use but if it works it will be worth it in the long run.

Daily Concepts Facial Mini Scrubber
This does what it says on the tin, its made from soy and a natural cotton base layer which will create a rich lather. It is perfect for sensitive skin and is cruelty free, it also has a little pocket to put your fingers in whilst scrubbing. Again sounds really good and because I have sensitive skin I'm excited to put this to the test! You can get this on Amazon for £6.99.

Bang Beauty Eyebrow Cream
I have heard a lot about this brand lately so I am excited that they have something from them in the box this month. This eyebrow cream has a velvety consistency and will apply effortlessly. I don't really use eyebrow creams anymore but I will definitely give this one a go, however the one I have is in the shade auburn so not sure what that is going to look like on me. It does look quite brown in the pot so I will have to see. It also does come with a little brush which I will need to test as well, that in mind this retails for £16.80.

Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo Lip Liner
I have been getting into lip liners a lot more recently so I was very happy to see this in the box. It has a very creamy formula and is a beautiful pinky shade. If you are into your lip liners then this will be a great addition to your collection. It is very pigmented as well! This retails for £25 but at the moment it has a sale on when I am posting this so you can get it for £17.50.

Grow Gorgeous Scalp Detox
Apparently you should be detoxing your scalp often which I didn't even know was a thing if I'm being completely honest. This has pomegranate enzymes and natural castor oil beads in it to remove the impurities that block the roots so it can boost hair growth. It is vegan and cruelty free which is good to know and you are supposed to use this 1-2 times a week as a pre-wash treatment. Considering I have not heard of a product like this I am excited to use this and see what it does for my hair. This is a deluxe mini that retails for £7.37, the full size retails for £28.

Wet Ones Be Fresh Antibacterial Wipes
Antibacterial wipes are always needed when you are on the go whether its to clean or freshen up so I think it's great they've included these. They kill 99.9% of bacteria and these are suitable for your hands, body and children. I have put them in my handbag already as they are a great travel size and you never know when you need wipes. This retail for only £1.15 which I think is such a bargain.

So that was this months Glossy Box, if you like the sound of Glossy Box then you can sign up here.
