Glossybox: Detox January

Not sure how and why I forgot to write about this *comes out from a heap of products waiting to be reviewed*. I actually LOVED this month's Glossybox which focused on Detoxing your skin for a fresh start to a new year.

Why did I love it so much? Well basically I am obsessed with face masks recently and was ecstatic to find three masks in this box. I am not even kidding, I have used all three by now and I loved them all.

The Renu Flash Relax Mask is an anti-ageing, lifting one. I like how it's transparent making it perfect for holidays or long haul flights. You have to massage the serum like product into skin and let it sink if before washing off. It has a nice tightening effect to it and leaves skin plump and supple. I haven't looked into Renu as a skincare brand so this has definitely intrigued me.

The Sanctuary Spa 30 Day Thermal Transformation is a 2 step warming clay mask which is supposedly meant to replicate the effects of cosmetic surgery on mature skin. Me and my mum didn't quite like this one as much, it's quite ordinary like a usual clay mask but worth a try for it's fancy application ritual and the relaxing warming effect.

Finally, the Tri-Active Cleanser by Vichy you see in the image is gorgeously potent, just like other Vichy products. It's very strong and perfect for when skin's breaking out or feeling overtly oily or clogged. Plus it can be used as a face wash or a mask depending on your preference. Must-buy!

Overall, Glossybox stuck to their 'detox' theme pretty well. Two thumbs up!

I'm such a big fan of the Sanctuary skin care line. Liking the sound of their face mask!

You should definitely try out their facial oils. Currently testing out the new lipid recovery one. I can feel it nourishing my skin! x

I'm a big fan of the Vichy Tri-Active Cleanser... I wish they made a version without the exfolianting particles so I could use it every day!

@Patuxxa - I agree. The beads in it are a little too abrasive for everyday use.
