Review: Glossybox Weddings

If you’re looking for a lovely wedding day gift for your maids, or perhaps another beauty-loving bride to be, then I think you might just love the latest Limited Edition offering from Glossybox!  Beautifully packaged and filled with 6 bridal beauty must-haves the Wedding Edition makes a luxurious gift or treat.  The Glossybox team sent me one to try out, and here’s what I thought ~

Beauty Bird ‘Yes I Do’ nailpolish

I’m a big fan of neutral nails, so this perfectly pretty pink polish got a big tick from me. Easy to apply (although it needed a few coats to get a good colour) this would be a great addition to your bridal beauty pack.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector

This highlighting cream has a really lovely golden shimmer and gave a nice dewy look to my makeup.  It’s a nice consistency making it easy to apply and is packed full of Vitamins – A, B, D and E to be precise as well as SPF 25. It’s a skin-friendly addition to your pre-wedding skincare routine as well as a great choice on the day as it wears really well.

Naobay Moisturizing Peel

This facial milk scrub smells amazing! It’s really light, and not at all abrasive like some other peels or exfoliators out there.  I’m really picky about what I put on my skin after suffering for years with sensitive skin and rosacea, but this felt really soothing and didn’t irritate my skin one bit.  Again, it’s packed full of nutritious ingredients which are 98% natural and almost 30% organic, the olive oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil and Gotu Kola extra made my skin feel super soft and nourished after the treatment

ModelCo Lip Duo

I loved this lip stick / gloss duo, it would be super handy in your wedding day kit and looks pretty chic too.  The lip colour was a bit too rich and dark for me, but I love the sweet tasting gloss!

Bellapierre Cosmetics Volumizing Mascara

I’m super fussy when it comes to mascara’s, being a Benefit girl for years before moving onto the super lush Chantacaille thanks to our very own beauty queen Ana.  The Bellapierre mascara went on smoothly and it’s meant to make your lashes look thicker & fuller, but for me it had more of a defining, lengthening effect due mostly to the skinny brush.  It’s not waterproof, so perhaps not the best choice if you think you might get a little emotional on your big day! Quite lovely for every day though.

NYX Cosmetics Makeup Palette

The smokey eye is BIG in bridal, and this compact layered set is a really neat choice for the DIY bride containing 8 eyeshadows + base and 4 sheer lip colours.  The eye colours are really nice neutrals, with a slight sheen and a couple of more pearlescent ones for highlighting.  I really liked the warm grey & brown shades & they’d suit lots of different skin tones.  The lip colours are light and fresh and just right to compliment a statement eye!

The Glossybox website promises a surprise goodie too, which in my box was a set of cute pink shoe bows.  I’m not sure I’ll be wearing them any time soon, but they’d make a sweet addition to a pair of ballet pumps or courts if you wanted to pretty them up in a hurry!

The Glossybox Wedding Edition costs £25.00 + P&P, which is pretty good value considering most of the products are full-size and worth almost £100 in total.  I really liked the selection, and definitely think they’d make a great addition to any brides wedding day preparation!

Glossybox also offer non-wedding subscriptions starting from just £10 per month, which would also make a lovely gift for your supportive maids, mums or a post-wedding treat for yourself! Pick a 1, 3, 6 or 12 month plan and they’ll receive a box of 5 luxurious beauty products in the mail each month.

Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
