GLOSSYBOX: Mother's Day Limited Edition 2019

|
Now when it comes to creating special limited editions boxes, GLOSSYBOX know exactly what they are doing and are pretty much slaying it. I am a big fan of these boxes and they always sell out quickly, just like their Karl Lagerfeld and Model Co boxes that sold out in a few days. With Mother's Day at the end of the month it's the perfect time for GLOSSYBOX to bring out another limited edition for us mamas out there. The Mother's Day Edition certainly packs as punch and is jam packed full of exciting products that any mama would love to open on such a special day. The limited edition box contains nine beauty treats with a value of over £100, as soon as you open the box you will see so many great brands that you would have come across and perhaps discover a couple that you are yet to try. Personally, I think that this is a great little gift to get your mama for Mother's Day or you could score major points and get her a subscriptions so she can enjoy for many months to come. 


But whatever you do, this limited edition box will certainly make an impression and is a little bit brilliant. If you wanted a sneek peek then please read on. Like I said this limited editions is jam packed full of brilliant brands such as bareMinerals, Peter Thomas Roth, Laura Geller, Clarins and Yankee Candle are all featured in the Glossybox Mother’s Day 2019 edition. I have used a couple of these products before but there are a few that I have yet to discover and I think that's why I love these types of boxes it gives you an opportunity to try before committing to a bigger purchase. 


Laura Geller. Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Diamond Dust. RRP | £21

I was very excited to see the Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in the box as it’s such a gorgeous shade. I have also used a couple of products from Laura Geller so I can completely get behind the hype. This gorgeous highlighter is everything you could wish for and more when it comes to giving you a subtle glow that we all desire. The pigmentation is crazy good and the colour payoff when applied is amazing. For someone who loves the perfect glow on their skin all day this is an amazing product for you as it's so easy to blend that you don’t need that much. I would highly recommend this product. It is slightly pricey but you get what you pay for because you don't actually need a lot of product. 


Clairns. Extra-firming Night Cream. RRP | £63

I don't know about you, but I'm so over winter! Bring on the warmer weather and all the pretty flowers that come with spring. I also like the start of a new season because it gives me an opportunity to shake up my skincare routine. This Mother's Day Limited edition features a Extra-Firming Night Cream from Clairns. It's been a little while since I have actually used this brand so I was more than willing to use this in my night time skincare routine. This night cream visibly firms, tones and improves skin’s elasticity with the wrinkle-fighting power of hydrated silica of Moonstone extract. It claims that I would see a difference in just two weeks. It's definitely something I need more of the older I get.  This night cream feels so light on the skin and absorbs really quickly. The consistency is quite thick, which I like. However, it's totally non-greasy and leaves my skin looking nourished. I really like this night cream as it even makes my skin look really good without foundation, it has a light scent which is always a great thing when it comes to skincare products for your face. 


bareMinerals. BAREPRO Longwear Lipstick RRP | £20 (deluxe mini 1.5g worth £14).

I adore mini lipsticks. They are a great way to get a feel for a colour before making a big purchase and this one is a gorgeous shade of pink, who doesn't love a pink lip for those days where you want to feel empowered. It’s richly pigmented and feels long-lasting without being drying. I am new to Bare Minerals and I am happy to report that I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of their products. This formula really is long wearing which is great for the days that you are on the go. This little mini has already made it's way into my handbag and would be perfect when going out out too.

Peter Thomas Roth. 24k Gold Mask. RRP | £68

Now I have never really come across any products from Peter Thomas Roth so I was very excited to try this mask. This 24K Gold mask helps firm, lift, brighten and calm the appearance of skin which is something that I really could do with at the moment, one too many midnight wake up calls with my daughter. Muff said. This mask is rich and luxurious. Although you are supposed to use a thick layer, I don't think it's necessary. It's quite expensive but you get a huge tub. The only downside to the product would be the packagin as it's see through and plastic, making it look cheap. However, despite that it's a good product and a must do on Mother's Day. 

Crabtree & Evelyn. Rosewater & Pink Peppercorn Hydrating Hand Recovery. RRP | £18

The Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Hand Recovery is a dual-action formula developed to alleviate dry, rough skin on hands. Enriched with ultra-hydrating Rosewater, it combines the moisturising elements of a hand cream with gentle exfoliants to effectively slough away particularly dehydrated and calloused skin. I have used some of Crabtree & Evelyn lotions before and they have always smell so yummy and do wonders for my skin. This is a good one to add into my handbag for the cold school runs in the mornings and afternoons. I have quite the collection of different hand cream building up in my skincare basket for some reason but this one is staying with me as it's smells so good. 

OPI. Nail Lacquer in Frenchie Likes to Kiss. RRP | £13

I have had a few shades from OPI and I have to say that they have some super staying power, however this shade shortfalls. I actually wasn't that impressed. I found it very watery and difficult to not end up with streaky looking nails. Even if I added a couple more coats it didn't sit so well on my nails and wasn't so great. I don't know if the one I got was just the odd one out but I wouldn't say it was worth trying again.


Molton Brown. Suede Orris Bath & Shower Gel. RRP | £22

There is always room for another body wash, and this one arrive in great time as I had just run out of body wash, however this Molton Brown was a little more luxurious than my usual go to products. Firstly the body wash has an irresistible aroma that blends notes of fresh Mandarin and Elemi with Tuscan Orris, Rose and Jasmine Absolutes, Labdanum and Cedarwood. It's so good. The body feels rejuvenated and delicately scented after use. As lovely and indulgent as this was for a shower gel, it's very pricey. Personally body wash it's not something that I would splash out on.

Beauty Bio. The Sculptor. RRP £70

So I was really excited to see this sculptor in the box as this little cream helps to tackle stubborn thigh and body dimpling. Firming sea algae helps improve elasticity and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and super smooth. After a couple of sessions with a body roller I could see a little difference in my skin, Now meanwhile I still have those dimples my skin feels so hydrated and smooth. Personally, it a tad on the expensive side and would be a splurge items I would get every so often.


Yankee Candle in Blush Bouquet. RRP | £9

Is there anything more relaxing that a gorgeous candle, a good book and a box of chocolates? This is what every Mama needs to do on Mother's Day. So seeing a cute little Yankee Candle was a big bonus, it's such a good idea to feature on of these in this limited edition box. Each box will receive one of four scents from Sundrenched Apricot Rose, A Calm & Quiet Place, Fresh Cut Roses, or Blush Bouquet which is the one we recieved. All are perfect for spring time. 

And that’s a peek at the Mother's Day special edition with GLOSSYBOX, so what did you think? I must admit, this box is pretty epic and has so many great products that are full sized as well as a couple of cute minis. Yep, an impressive box and well worth it's price. So grab yours for £25 or £30 for non-subscribers! But be quick, so you don't end up on the waiting list!

We were kindly gifted this beauty box from Glossybox

  1. I've never tried glossybox but they look a great way trying new products. I'm always a bit wary of subscriptions though!

  6. Glossybox looks fab! I love the idea of little products to try out, so you get to try new stuff that perhaps you wouldn't normally buy. A little box of treasure :-)
