Glossybox French Beauty Essentials

Glossy Box | French Beauty Essentials

Its all about glossy French look this time because the June’s Glossy box is inspired by French Reviera – the home to Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez and Monaco. This month’s box brings chic and sophisticated French Beauty Essentials along with some skincare and haircare to get us ready for a glam holiday.

For those who do not know, Glossybox is a £10 monthly subscription service with which you get 5 or 6 different beauty products nicely wrapped in a beautiful box at your doorstep each month.

Glossybox French Beauty Essentials - Laritzy bronzing stick, Gatineau makeup remover, Monu skincare eye cool gel - Ms TAntrum Blog

  • Laritzy Cosmetics Shade Stix | £18

For a healthy glow, this shade stix from French-Canadian brand Laritzy is a must! This fabulous multi-tasking stick can perform both as a gorgeous bronzer or creamy contour. The creamy, weightless texture makes it really easy to blend plus its highly pigmented and long-lasting. This is cruelty-free and paraben-free as well which is a bonus!

  • Monu Skin Eye Cool Gel | £26 (15 ml)

This eye gel will work to soothe and refresh tired eyes perfectly. This gel instantly revives and tones tired eyes, reduces puffiness and dark circles. Its an all-round miracle that delivers immediate results. This paraben-free formulation is suitable for all skin types. Good Bye, tired eyes and Hello, French Glamour!

Glossybox French Beauty Essentials - Nip & Fab Glycolic Scrub, Monu SKincare eye gel

  • Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix (50 ml) | £9.95 for 75 ml

This 3-in-1 micro exfoliant is packed with 3% glycolic acid and salicylic acids to refine, brighten + renew. Glycolic Fix Facial scrub works deep into pores to cleanse, polish + reduce blemishes from the first use. This glycolic scrub has been a staple in my skincare routine for years and I went through so many of these. Glad to have a little backup. This is also great for prepping your skin before a big event as you will instantly get blank canvas ( without any blackheads or dead skin ) ready for makeup. Skin looks squeaky clean and radiant with each use – just how French women like!

  • Novex Mystic Black Deep Hair Mask (100 gms) | £11.95 (1 kg)

We all need a hair mask that can work its magic to leave our hair feeling hydrated, free of frizz, tangles and split ends. This hair mask is enriched with Baobab oil and is ideal for all hair types that suffer from dryness. The mask is free from any nasties including parabens, sulphates and silicones.

Glossybox French Beauty Essentials

  • Gatineau Gentle Eye Makeup Remover | £21 for 200 ml

This French Classic brand was founded in Paris over 80 years ago by madame Jeanne Gatineau. This gentle eye makeup remover is oil-free and formulated with cucumber, green tea and Aloe Vera. This is suitable for most sensitive skin and also contact lens wearers. I wear contact lenses and have sensitive eyes too so a gentle yet effective makeup remover is what I look for! I have tried few products from Gatineau before and I have been impressed so far.

Overall, I’m impressed with the contents this month. I see myself using all of these products but a Red lipstick would have been a bonus as French women love their red lips :). Still no complaints as the box has products that really work!
