GlossyBox September 2018 Unboxing and Review

GlossyBox is one of the UK most popular beauty subscription boxes. I have reviewed this before many years ago as part of my Beauty Box review series, to see that post, click here

September’s GlossyBox theme is Back to School which they say contains products to help you get prepped and organised. It comes with 6 products, 5 full sizes and 1 deluxe mini size. The contents are worth £64.16 when purchased separately but with GlossyBox you pay £10 plus £3.95 postage.

In the Back to School Box you get

BeautyPro Detoxifying Bubbling Mask with Activating Charcoal (full size)– worth £4.95

Daily Concepts Your Facial Mini Scrubber (full size) – worth £8.85

Bang Beauty Eyebrow Cream (full size) – worth £16.80

Karl Langerfeld + ModelCo Lip Liner in Rosewood (full size) – worth £25

Grow Gorgeous Scalp Detox (deluxe mini size) – worth £7.37

Wet Ones Be Fresh Antibacterial Wipes (full size) worth- £1.19

Swatches of the Eyebrow Cream & Lipliner


Overall thoughts

It’s not an exciting box, I haven’t heard of most of the brands but I think that’s the point of a monthly subscription box: you get introduced to different brands.

I like the colour and texture of the lip liner, it has great colour payoff and a creamy texture but I don’t know about the £25 price tag. The brow product is totally useless to me. It’s a very waxy pomade and the shade is a very ashy brown/grey that looks chalky/ashy on me. There are only 2 products I am actually looking forward to using- the facemask and the mini facial scrubber

I actually only got this box to gain priority access and a £5 discount off their Sunday Riley Limited Edition Box that is launching next week! I am so excited! I missed out on their last limited edition boxes ( La Mer and NARS) so I didn’t want to miss out on this too! I have recently tried Good Genes( I bought their Flash Kit from Beautylish) and I have really enjoyed it plus I have always wanted to try more from the brand.

PS- They are also releasing their 1st ever Beauty Advent Calendar! For more info on it, click here


I don’t find the box exciting but it has some nice products and I have been introduced to new brands. It’s definitely worth a lot more than what you pay for but if you can’t use the items then it’s almost like mehh. I think when it comes to coloured cosmetics e.g. the brow product, it would be better if they had a few shades and given people the option to select their perfect shade

Are you a #glossie? What did you think of the September Back to School Edition box?

More importantly, are you looking forward to the Sunday Riley Box?

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
