The Beauty Drop - Summer's Calling at Glossybox

In our new weekly feature we're picking a highlight that's landed on the Her.ie beauty desk and giving you the lowdown on the beauty break-through, the budget and the reasons you should buy.... 

The Beauty Buzz

We love the GLOSSYBOX concept, a box of pretty treats delivered to your door every month can only be a good thing. It's a fantastic way of testing new purchases before actually splashing the cash on full-size products and of course who doesn't love a surprise present?

The Beauty Brand

GLOSSYBOX was dreamed up by Charles von Abercron in Berlin in 2011 when he noticed a gap in the market for an innovative beauty sampling method.

Today, it's the world’s leading global beauty box and sells one box every 22 seconds. Impressive much.

The Beauty Break-through

Although there are now a fair few beauty subscription services on the market, GLOSSYBOX is one of the first. With a different theme each month and special limited-edition boxes, the team are continually thinking of new ways to improve the beauty box concept.

We get excited every time a new GLOSSYBOX arrives and that's most definitely a sign of the brand's success.

The Beauty Budget

Sign up to GLOSSYBOX and you'll receive a box of five beauty products (often full-sized) for €15 (the cost down goes down if you opt into a subscription).

The May box is all about summer so if you're planning a holiday or getting in the mood for a festival, then these treats are sure to form part of your summer arsenal.

Blue eyeliner might seem like a throwback to the 80s but it was all over the catwalks this season. There's two tones to choose over and a feline flick of this might be just the thing to update your summer make-up look.

EtreBelle Ultra Aloe Vera Moisturising Gel €22.45

If you're heading for the sun, aloe-vera is a must for your beauty bag. It instantly hydrates tired and dehydrated skin plus it makes for the perfect after-sun.

Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam €11.20

We didn't think it was possible to get clean hair without heading for the shower but this little bottle could be a game-changer. The apple scent is gorgeous and you simply apply the foam to your hair where it instantly absorbs oil and grease, leaving your locks silky and fresh. Result.

There's nothing worse than having to shave your legs every other day to avoid re-growth and anything that can slow this process sounds good to us. It's also ideal for treating ingrown hairs.

Collection Cosmetics Field Day Lipstick €4.21

A coral pop of lip colour is an easy way to get you beach ready and this bargain buy delivers a matte finish that will can last the distance, even when there's water and sand involved.

They Say: Each month GLOSSYBOX hand-picks five top beauty products and delivers them straight to your door.

GLOSSYBOX customers each complete a ‘beauty profile’ and undergo an accurate beauty and product match to ensure the products they receive are tailored towards their preferences each month.

You can choose from a three, six or twelve month subscription and if you're feeling generous, treat a beauty-loving friend.

We Say: We hold our hands up, we're product hoarders on the Her.ie team and are total magpies when it comes to the latest must-haves.

You can imagine our excitement at the idea of a monthly treat box full of new goodies to try.

Too. Much. Fun.
