Glowwbox May Edition…Lipcote Beauty Review

November 5, 2015


Glowwbox May Edition- ‘Summer Essentials’ blog post

Glowwbox is a monthly beauty subscription service, with exciting products tailored to women of colour. We recenty teamed up with them to giveaway their beautiful May edition box, bursting with goodies for hair, nails and face. We of course, had to take it upon ourselves to test out all the products included. Here’s our lowdown on the typical treats you can expect in a Glowwbox once you’ve subscribed.


NYX Matte lipstick in Perfect Red

MJ Avocado Oil & Walnut Exfoliating Face Masque & MJ Ginseng and Jasmine Sauna Face Masque.

MJ (Montagne Jeunesse) facemasks have provided cheap at home ‘spa style’ treatments for years, with the Lipcote office viewing them as fondly now as when we first discovered them in our teens. Providing luxurious feeling facemasks in a now astonishing array of ingredients and ‘flavours’, we were surprisingly pleased with the choices on offer in this box. Both had an extremely pleasant warming effect which left our skin feeling incredibly smooth and plump to the touch afterwards. The jasmine version had an especially calming fragrance, perfect to unwind with after a long day at work!

NYX nail polish

The colour we received from NYX’s polish range was a sophisticated muted, turquoise-blue called Aqua. Really easy to use, in one coat we got a brilliant finish!

UrbanVeda Radiance Exfoliating Face Polish

UrbanVeda products are already a favourite amongst the Lipcote office, for their refreshing quality enhanced by natural ingredients. This facial polish subtly exfoliates, so it’s great for an everyday wash for clogged pores or those with sensitive skin. The dinky travel sized sample is great for on the go ladies that gym straight after work, or to save and pop in your holiday washbag! X
