What We’re Loving

Each month, a few members of our team round-up their most coveted recent purchases for our What We’re Loving series. Giving you a bit of insight into the GLOSSYBOX NYC headquarters and what our team is obsessing over, this month we meet Marta, Maike, and Hillary, Samantha and Camilo.

Tatcha-Oil-Blog-Size

Marta, Visual Designer

Product: Tatcha Gold Camellia Beauty Oil

How did you discover it?
I was lucky enough to get this product as a present from a close friend a month ago and I fell in love with it the first time I tried it.

Tell us about the product:
This beauty oil has a really nice botanical scent (Green Tea and Bamboo) but it isn’t overwhelming. It’s very light and it fades away within minutes and is perfect to use before bedtime. It has a very light texture but rich at the same time, really easy to apply and very fast to absorb.  

Why do you love it?
 This is one of the few oils that I’ve found to be moisturizing but not greasy at all. I can use a few drops every night and it absorbs into my skin super fast, leaving my face feeling nice and soft without looking oily or causing me any breakouts. It’s definitely a luxury treat, but if you want to try it the travel size lasts for a long time.

Maike, Account Manager

Product: Toni Gard My Honey Body Splash

How did you discover it?
I hadn’t heard of the brand until my mom gifted it to me for my birthday one year. I’ve been obsessed with it ever since!

Tell us about the product:
This body splash has a fresh and sweet smell that is perfect for summer days. It’s not too strong so sometimes I like to combine it with the Toni Gard My Honey Eau de Parfum.

Why do you love it?
I love putting it on after taking a shower or before going to work. It’s extremely refreshing and doesn’t stick to your skin like some other body splashes I’ve tried. Mostly I love the slightly sweet smell and the cooling/refreshing sensation. Also, the cute packaging doesn’t hurt.

 RoseBud-Blog-Size

Hillary, Social Media Manager

Product: Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm

How did you discover it?
Smith’s was founded in my hometown, so I always knew about it.  I got this lip balm as a Hanukkah present a few years ago but I thought I lost it.  However, I recently found it buried in a toiletries basket when I moved into my new apartment.    

Tell us about the product:
This lip balm has a fresh minty scent that’s calming not overpowering like some other mint chapsticks and balms. Also, the texture is super light weight and adds a nice, subtle shine to your lips that compliments your natural lip color or your favorite stain.

Why do you love it?
A little goes a long way with this product.  I’ve had the same tin for a few months and have barely made a dent in it.  I also love that I can use it as a lip primer while doing my makeup.  It’s the perfect foundation for my favorite matte liquid lipsticks and it keeps my lips from drying as the day progresses.

Samantha, Communications Manager

Product: Frederic Malle – Eau de Magnolia

How did you discover it?
My mother-in-law is a fragrance fanatic and knows every single perfume on the market. She gave me this a couple months ago and it has been my favorite product ever since.

Tell us about the product.
The fragrance is subtle, fresh, and extraordinarily light (which i love) with natural smelling notes.

Why do you love it?
I love this perfume because it was gifted to me by someone I truly love and admire. She felt that this scent compliments my personality and look. It grew on me so much that I cannot imagine a day without using this fragrance. I don’t like heavy scents that are too flowery or too strong and this fragrance is perfectly subtle, light, natural and fresh

Astara-Blog-Size

Camilo, Head of Creative  

Product: Astra Skin Care Daily refining scrub

How did you discover it?
It was recommended to me by a great aesthetician here in NYC. I’ve been seeing her every month as she’s helping me change my regimen to reveal a healthier skin. I have really sensitive skin so she recommend me this scrub that I use every other day and it’s changing my life! My face already looks a lot clearer, even and radiant.

Tell us about the product.
Its is gentle enough to use every day.  It’s organic and contains Aloe Vera, Diatomaceous Earth, Extracts of Comfrey, Chamomile, Calendula and Algae, Oils of Grapefruit, Mandarin Orange, Rosemary and Lavender.

Why do you love it?
In just a couple of weeks it has helped remove dead skin cells, improving my overall skin health. It also refines fine lines when used consistently. My skin feels awesome! If you use it on dry skin, it almost feels like a microdermabrasion or you can use it with your daily cleanser as well for a more gentle exfoliation.
