Day 16 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – bareMinerals Prime Time Original Foundation Primer

There are a lot of firsts for me with this advent calendar: my first bareMinerals product has arrived! A rather small tube of primer, but I’m looking forward to trying it nonetheless. There are a lot of claims on the box, but the first one I see is that it smooths away dryness. I have dry skin, especially at this time of year, so some extra hydration won’t go amiss!

bareMinerals Prime Time Original Foundation Primer

Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick

Glossybox description: This soothing mineral-based primer will keep you glowing this festive season! Blending plant extracts, antioxidants and vitamins C and E, its nourishing formula will help to smooth out fine lines, reduce enlarged pores and remove excess oil, creating the perfect base for your makeup.
RRP / Deluxe mini 7ml, worth £6.00. Full-size 30ml, £26.00
SHOP / https://www.bareminerals.co.uk/makeup/face/primer/prime-time-foundation-primer/UK80468.html

Box description: Clean without compromise. Full of smoothing. Free of stickiness. Create the perfect canvas: Experience your most flawless foundation application. Prime Time Original Foundation Primer smoothes away dryness, the look of fine lines, excess oil, the appearance of enlarged pores and uneven texture. Our mineral infused formula glides on seamlessly, helping to extend the wear of your foundation. Great for all skin types. Apply a thin, even layer all over the face. Once dry, follow with bareMinerals foundation.

bareMinerals website description: A foundation primer developed to address flaky dryness, fine lines,excess oil, and enlarged pores. This mineral-infused formula glides on with no tacky feel to provide a skin-smoothing complexion prior to applying bareMinerals Foundation.
What it is: Enlarged pores. Uneven texture. Flaky dryness. We’ve all had complexion problems. That’s why we created Prime TimeTM, which prepares your skin for seamless coverage with bareMinerals Foundation. Apply it first for the smooth, evenly textured complexion you’ve been waiting for. QVC Beauty Awards 2013 – Best Makeup Must-Have.

First Impressions: The clear gel has the feeling of a typical silicone primer. It is slippy and leaves the skin feeling smooth. It has little to no scent. I am interested to see how this performs under foundation as it has no tack, which is what usually helps to keep foundation secure on the face. Hopefully this primer will have the pore-filling properties it suggests, as I do have enlarged pores on my cheeks.

Day 15 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick

I was aware that we would be receiving a Fenty Beauty item in this calendar, but since it is the well-renowned beauty company of superstar Rihanna, I assumed the Fenty item would be the concluding item on Day 25, so I was pleasantly surprised to reveal this item today! It now makes me wonder what on Earth I will unbox on Christmas Day! The shade I received was ‘Trippin’ which is a golden peach colour.

Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick

Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick

Glossybox description: This long-lasting, light-as-air shimmer stick can be used to highlight and enhance your natural features. Apply it onto the high points of your face (think cheekbones, brow bones, Cupid’s bow) and your décolletage, then blend it in using your fingers or a highlighter brush.
RRP / £21.00
SHOP / https://www.fentybeauty.com/match-stix-shimmer-skinstick/FB30004.html?dwvar_FB30004_color=FB3032&cgid=makeup-face-highlighter

Box description: Hightlight, blush, & Enhance. Longwear, light-as-air layering.

Fill Weight: 0.25 oz/ 7.10 g

First Impressions: I couldn’t wait to try this in my makeup routine today! It is a cream formula, so I decided not to powder down my cheeks today in case the formula didn’t work well with powder. The shade is deceptively dark and in fact the colour on the cheeks is a golden peach, which worked well with my light to medium skin tone. The stick is not very soft and I was concerned that it might lift my foundation, but it didn’t appear to (I used Sleek’s ‘Lifeproof Foundation’ in shade 4). I blended it with a brush and it gave a lovely subtle glow to the areas I like to highlight, namely my upper cheeks, forehead, down the bridge of my nose and Cupid’s bow. It also works as a blush, as it has the peachy tint and I do tend towards shimmering blushers anyway. All in all, I really like this product and will happily wear this on a day-to-day basis, as it is not too blinding and offers a ‘lit-from-within’ glow.

Day 14 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Ecooking Hand Cream / Håndcreme

An interesting company name for a skincare brand! Although I’ve heard of this brand, I’ve never tried any of their products. The packaging is modern and elegant and I like the metal tube. This Danish company was launched in 2015 and they appear to have a fantastic range of skincare products and have great green credentials.

Day 13 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Sunday Riley Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment

My first Sunday Riley product! I seem to remember that Glossybox had a limited edition Sunday Riley box a few years ago, but it was soon after I had become a subscriber and hadn’t even heard of Sunday Riley back then. If they released a Sunday Riley box now, I would definitely try to get my hands on it! This is a tiny 5ml sample though, Sadly, there won’t be much opportunity to test how good it is.

Sunday Riley Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment

Sunday Riley Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment

Glossybox description: Formulated with purified glycolic acid, this treatment penetrates the deeper layers of your skin to remove dirt and impurities from your pores. It also repairs sun damge, reduces the appearnace of wrinkles and brightens dull skin. Apply it morning and night after cleansing.
RRP / Deluxe mini 5ml, worth £11.48. Full-size 30ml, £67.00 (Sunday Riley website says £85.00??)
SHOP / https://uk.sundayriley.com/collections/treatments-serums/products/b-good-genes-glycolic-acid-treatment-b-br?variant=35808213368981

Box description: Containing clean, ultra-pure, formaldehyde-free glycloic acid, to revitalise the appearance of dull, congested, and sun damaged skin, without compromising on what matters to you most: safety, quality, and fast results. Good Genes Glycolic penetrates the surface of the skin with tiny glycolic acid molecules, sinking deeper into the skin than other forms of AHA, to break apart pore-clogging debris and repair the look of sun-damaged, congested, wrinkled, or dull skin. With just one use, instant radiance and skin clarity are visibly boosted. Balanced with fermented prickly pear extract, perfect for sensitive skin, to soothe and calm the complexion, along with skin-purifying lemongrass extract.

Directions: Apply to clean skin as an exfoliating serum, morning or night.

Sunday Riley website description: Clean, purified glycolic acid deeply exfoliates and repairs the look of dull, congested, and sun damaged skin for a visibly radiant, healthier-looking complexion

Balanced with fermented prickly pear extract, perfect for sensitive skin, to soothe and calm the complexion, along with skin-purifying lemongrass extract.

Sulfate-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and phthalate-free

HOW TO USE

WE RECOMMEND: Apply to clean skin as an exfoliating serum, morning or night. 

STANDARD PRECAUTION: Use only as directed. Avoid contact with the eyes. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a Health Care professional. 

SUN ALERT: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. 

KEY INGREDIENTS

GLYCOLIC ACID: Glycolic Acid is the smallest AHA, which means that it penetrates deeper into the skin than other AHAs. Because of this, glycolic acid is ideal for deeper, surface exfoliation, clearer-looking skin, and the appearance of smaller pores. By dissolving and sweeping away dead skin cells and excess oil, the signs of dull skin and congestion are cleared. The look of wrinkles and fine lines are visibly smoothed. Further treatments, serums, and creams are able to sink into the skin better after Good Genes application.

POTASSIUM LACTATE: A member of the lactic acid family, potassium lactate provides smooth, even, and gentle exfoliation while also boosting hydration levels.

First Impressions: I tested it on the back of my hand. The product absorbs well and quickly. It has a very subtle scent, which, weirdly, reminds me of washing up liquid! I am looking forward to seeing if this works on my skin type.

Day 12 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

How cute! This is a tiny sample of a sleeping mask, 10ml. Glow Recipe has been all over the beauty influencers’ channels. I seem to remember this being a well-respected product and other US beauty subscription boxes having Glow Recipe products in them, although not this small! Maybe Glow Recipe are being cautious with the British marketplace?

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

Glossybox description: Formulated with amino-acid rich watermelon extract, hydrating hyaluronic acid and pore refining AHAs, this overnight mask exfoliates and clarifies your skin, giving you a radiant complexion. Gently pat a generous layer onto your cleansed skin before bed then wash it off in the morning.
RRP / Deluxe mini 10ml, worth £3.93. Full-size 80ml, £36.40
SHOP / https://www.glowrecipe.com/collections/watermelon/products/glow-recipe-watermelon-glow-sleeping-mask

Box description: Glowing radiance + smoothing AHA + hyaluronic acid.

Glow Recipe website description: The Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is a luxuriously bouncy, breathable sleeping mask that smoothes and perfects skin, overnight. This pillow-proof formula acts as a radiance-boosting hyaluronic acid face mask, formulated with soothing, amino-acid rich Watermelon Extract, hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, and pore refining AHAs that work while you sleep to gently exfoliate and clarify. It’ll quickly become your go-to face mask for glowing skin.

In an independent consumer testing panel of 32 women age 21 to 73:
– 90% of women agreed their skin felt more hydrated immediately after applying

After 4 weeks of use:
– 96% of women agreed their skin appeared radiant and brighter
– 92% of women agreed their skin appeared to be glowing
– 96% of women agreed their skin felt more bouncy

*Since our Watermelon Mask is made with real watermelon, you may find real fruit chunks in the formula.

First Impressions: The fragrance is heavenly! Having tested it on the back of my hand, I can tell that the product absorbs well, leaving the skin feeling cooled and smoothed. With such a small sample, I can’t tell how many applications it will provide, but I am looking forward to trying it out. My one reservation is how, if advised to apply a generous layer, will the product be pillow-proof! I’ll have to let you know!

Day 11 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub

Ooh! This looks like an interesting product. I immediately wondered if the coffee grounds were recycled, but the packaging and website do not say. So I have posed the question directly to Frank Body on Twitter. I would imagine that if the product does have an ecological benefit, that they would be shouting about it, so I’m guessing the coffee is ground specifically for this product. The packaging does not appear to be recyclable either. Shame! With all that said, though, the product looks new and innovative and the ingredients and skin benefits seem great. This is a 20g sample size, but there looks to be enough for at least a couple of applications.

Glossybox description: This natural, vegan coffee scrub blends coffee, vitamin E and anti-oxidant-rich oils to keep your skin looking perky, even and soft. Massage the scrub into your wet skin using circular motions for a few minutes to get rid of scars, cellulite and stretch marks.
RRP / Deluxe mini, worth £1.40. Full-size 200g, £12.95
SHOP / https://www.frankbody.com/uk/products/original-coffee-scrub/

Box description: Exfoliator for smooth, glowing skin.

  • Get naked: Get in the shower, babe.
  • Get dirty: Wet your skin and grab a handful of scrub.
  • Get rough: Scrub in circular motions from top to toe.
  • Get clean: Leave for 3 minutes, then rinse.

Frank Body website description: Meet my Original Coffee Scrub: the one that made me famous. I’m natural, vegan, and ready to work my magic on breakouts, scars, cellulite and stretch marks. My blend of coffee, vitamin E, and antioxidant-rich oils keep your skin looking perky, even and soft. Enough introductions. Time to get naked.

INSIDE ME

  • ROBUSTA COFFEE GRINDS: There’s a reason my Original Coffee Scrub has so many 5 star reviews. My hero blend of coffee provides the ultimate exfoliation for babes who want results.
  • COLD PRESSED SWEET ALMOND OIL: An antioxidant packed oil that leaves your skin hydrated even after rinsing the scrub off.
  • VITAMIN E: A bodyguard to protect your skin from free radicals, promoting healing and fading scars.
  • SEA SALT: Added exfoliation to tackle dry, flaky skin without irritation. Anti-bacterial to fight breakouts.

HOW TO USE ME

  • Skin Type: Babes, which is my way of saying all skin types
  • Smell: Orange Frappuccino
  • How often: Every 2-3 days
  • How much: 1-2 handfuls per use
  • Step 1: Get naked and get in the shower. You don’t need clothes for this.
  • Step 2: Once your skin is wet, cover your body in my Original Coffee Scrub. Scrub in circular motions for a few minutes, from top to toe.
  • Step 3: Focus on areas that want extra attention by scrubbing them for longer: scars, stretch marks, breakouts or cellulite
  • Step 4: Rinse and remember you’re a babe, no matter what.

First Impressions: I can’t give a first impression until I’ve tried it, but I am looking forward to trying it as I have stretch marks and cellulite, so I will be interested to see if it makes any difference. I am a natural sceptic, so I’m not expecting miracles! I will update this post, once I have something to add.

Day 10 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Zoeva Screen Queen Highlighting Powder Palette

Found it! I could not find box number ten, until it was suggested to me that it might be hidden underneath another box. And there it was, underneath box number 25!
So, after the initial excitement that I had received a palette, I discovered that it was a highlighter palette. Meh!

Zoeva Screen Queen Highlighting Powder Palette

Zoeva Screen Queen Highlighting Powder Palette

Glossybox description: Filled with three velvety smooth highlighters, including a champagne, lilac and peach hue, this palette allows you to create the ultimate ethereal glow. Apply the highly-pigmented powders onto the areas of your face that light naturally hits (think cheekbones, browbones and Cupid’s bow).
RRP / £15.00
SHOP / https://www.beautybay.com/p/zoeva/screen-queen-highlighting-palette/

Box description: Superior pigmentation. Easy to blend.

Beauty Bay website description: A three-shade highlighter palette. Velvety smooth and richly pigmented, Screen Queen Highlighting Palette is a classy addition to your collection. Channelling the glamour of old Hollywood’s beauty icons, this radiant trio blends effortlessly with the skin to deliver an enviable pearlescent finish.
Palette contains:

  • Aloof Beauty – Pearlescent champagne
  • Absolutely Flawless – Pearlescent lilac
  • Pearls And Fine Silks – Pearlescent bronze with peach undertones

First Impressions: The colours remind me of the Huda Beauty ‘Winter Solstice’ highlighter palette we received in the Glossybox Advent Calendar two years ago. That remains barely used. There’s something about these bright colours that puts me off. It appears to be a palette which wants to be all things to all people. Unless I use the shades as eyeshadows, I doubt I would get any use out of the darker two.
Upon further investigation, this Zoeva palette was released two years ago and is no longer on the Zoeva website. Beauty Bay and Debenhams have it on sale. So is this just a filler product? I would have thought the Advent Calendar would be reserved for products which are new to the market, requiring promotion. I am a tad confused. This palette will now remain unswatched, destined to end up in a future giveaway.

Day 9 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – MUA Makeup Academy Brow Define Eyebrow Pencil

How fortuitous. My current eyebrow pencil is running low and I wisely put off buying a new one just in case there was one in this advent calendar! The pencil’s lid has a built-in sharpener and the other end has a spoolie, which makes the whole process a lot easier than trying to dig around in my makeup box for either tool. It will also save me keeping my old pencil for the spoolie. This product is cruelty free and vegan.

MUA Makeup Academy Brow Define Eye Pencil

MUA Makeup Academy Brow Define Eye Pencil

Glossybox description: This eyebrow pencil boasts a buildable formula that can be used to line, define and fill your brows effortlessly. Use the sharpened pencil to draw realistic hairs and fill in any sparse areas, then shape and groom your brows with the spoolie.
RRP / £1.50
SHOP / https://www.muastore.co.uk/makeup/eyes/eyebrows/mua-eyebrow-pencil?SID=okqi9mfkfimcupa0n8rhof70u3

Box description: There is no description or shade name.

MUA website description: Buildable brow shade to line, define & fill with ease. Complete with a sharpener & spooly for the ultimate brow definition at any time.

First Impressions: The pencil has no shade name on it, but looking at the website I would guess this was the mid brown shade. This makes sense as you can press lightly or firmly to create lighter or darker lines. I broke the tip off to test the sharpener and it works really well. The product is fairly smudge-proof, but not entirely. My eyebrows are quite dark and they are fairly full with only one or two sparse areas. I found the colour was a good match and the forumla was creamy enough to fill in those sparse areas efficiently, but it did flake. I am used to using micro pencils so it did feel a tad bulky and imprescise. However, once I used the spoolie, it corrected any mistakes and swept any flakes away. I would say this product is well worth the £1.50 price tag.

Day 8 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Bubble T Cosmetics Winter Berries Bath Bomb Fizzer

Bath Bombs are great! They are mesmerising to watch and luxurious if they are a good size. Unfortunately, my mobility problems won’t allow me to use a bath as I find it extremely difficult to climb in and out, so I will place this bath fizzer into a future giveaway.

Bubble T Cosmetics Winter Berries Bath Bomb Fizzer

Box description: Make bathtime extra special with this exclusive Winter Berries bath fizzer. Sweet, fruity and packed with berry scents, you will be relaxed in no time with this festive treat. Directions: Drop under warm running water. Step in and brew for as long as required.

Bubble T Cosmetics website description: As seen in this year’s Glossybox Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar, this limited edition bath bomb fizzer is the perfect way to relax this season!  In our new exclusive Winter Berries fragrance, indulge and refresh with this sweet bauble-shaped bath fizzer that’ll soothe away your stresses in no time…

First Impressions: It’s a shame the product comes packaged in non-recyclable plastic. I think Bubble T Cosmetics could learn something from Lush in terms of their packaging. The bath fizzer is a good size at 6cm in diameter approx.

Also, due to the reasons above, I am unable to test this product for you. However, if you enter my future giveaway, you may be able to test it for yourself!

Day 7 – GLOSSYBOX ADVENT-URES – Glossybox Skincare 3-in-1 Moisturiser

There was a certain amount of inevitability that the Glossybox Advent Calendar would contain at least one product from their recently launched Glossybox Skincare range! I received an Eye Boost Cream in my August 2020 subscription box and have been using it every morning and it performs as expected. I can’t have enough moisturiser and look forward to including this 3-in-1 moisturiser in my daily skincare routine. The packaging is in a beautiful pink with black text, not dissimilar to our Rhubarb and Burble colour scheme, so what’s not to like!

Glossybox Skincare 3-in-1 Moisturiser

Glossybox Skincare 3-in-1 Moisturiser

Glossybox description: Blending hyaluronic acid, tsubaki oil and red seaweed, this lightweight 3-in-1 moisturiser plumps, primes and protects your complexion, nourishing your skin and preparing it for flawless makeup application. Massage a pea-sized amount into cleansed, toned skin, then wait 45 seconds before makeup.
RRP / Exclusive subscriber price £18.00 / RRP £22.50
SHOP / https://www.glossybox.co.uk/3-in-1-moisturiser/12269735.html


Box description: Our lightweight 3-in-1 moisturiser nourishes your skin & prepares it for flawless makeup application every day.

HOW TO USE
After cleansing and toning, massage a pea-sized amount onto your dry face and neck. Allow it to sink in for 45 seconds before applying makeup.

WHY IT WORKS

  • Hyaluronic Acid – Keeps your complexion looking plump & hydrated
  • Tsubaki – Works to moisturise your skin
  • Red Seaweed – Creates a protective barrier that helps to lock in moisture

GLOSSY ROUTINE
Apply every morning, then use our Night Serum in the evening.

Glossybox Skincare website description: Oily or combination skin? This lightweight 3-in-1 Moisturiser plumps, primes and protects – nourishing your skin and preparing it for flawless makeup application every day! ​

WHY IT WORKS​

  • ​Trending hyaluronic acid keeps your complexion looking plump and hydrated​
  • Tsubaki oil works to moisturise your skin​
  • Red seaweed creates a protective barrier that locks in moisture ​

TESTIMONIES

Following a two-week trial with 110 panellists between August and December 2019:

​90% of women agreed that 3-in-1 Moisturiser left their skin looking and feeling instantly hydrated​
85% of women agreed that 3-in-1 Moisturiser left their skin looking and feeling instantly protected from moisture loss​
84% of women agreed that 3-in-1 Moisturiser left their skin feeling instantly plumped with moisture.

First Impressions: Testing a small blob on the back of my hand revealed a white, light cream that blended out a long way, so go easy! It has a very pleasant, subtle, floral fragrance. I have dry-combination skin, so hopefully this will suit my skin type. I will add this to my vanity cabinet and let you know how it goes.
