We’re launching our very own skincare range – and we’ve used your survey feedback and social media comments to tailor it just for you! It features ten products that are simple, affordable and effectiveBetter yet, each one has been created to target specific skin concerns, so you can mix and match them to create your personalized skincare routine.   

Whilst you can browse our full range and choose the products that you think are right for you here, here’s what we’d recommend if you have dry skin. 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Dry Skin Morning Routine 

Step 1: Cleanse With Our Gentle Foaming Cleanser 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Gentle Foaming Cleanser

If you have dry skin, you need to avoid cleansers that leave your complexion feeling tight and stripped. That’s why we’d recommend using our Gentle Foaming Cleanser to wash your face in the morning. 

Its foam texture will feel gentle against your dry skin, yet still effectively remove the dirt and impurities that have settled onto your complexion throughout the night. Trust us, your skin will be left feeling cleansed, soothed and hydrated! 

Why It Works  

  • Cactus stem extract helps to soothe and moisturise your skin. 
  • Resurrection leaf extract leaves your complexion feeling hydrated. 
  • Kangaroo paw flower extract keeps your skin supple and fresh. 

How To Use The Gentle Foaming Cleanser 

  • Spray to pumps of foam into your hands. 
  • Rub your hands together to create a lather. 
  • Gentle massage the foam onto your dry or damp skin using circular motions for 30 seconds. 
  • Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. 
  • Pat your skin dry with a towel.

Step 2: Tone And Refresh With Our Hydrating Mist

After cleansing, you should always tone and rebalance your skin. That’s where our Hydrating Mist comes in. Not only does it tone, prime and replenish your skin, but its refreshing formula will add an instant boost of hydration, making it feel soothed with moisture. One of our trialists said:

It feels so fresh on my skin, soaks in quickly with no greasiness, and smells lovely!*

Why It Works 

  • Hyaluronic acid keeps your skin feeling hydrated and looking refreshed all day long. 
  • Inca inchi oil helps to support your skin’s natural barrier. 
  • Babassu oil leaves your complexion feeling soft and nourished. 

How To Use The Hydrating Mist 

  • As a toner: Spray three bursts onto your cleansed skin to tone your complexion.
  • As a primer: Spray three bursts onto moisturised skin to prime before makeup application.
  • As a refreshing mist: Spray three bursts onto your skin during the day as an extra hydration boost.

Step 3: Brighten Your Eyes With The Eye Boost Cream 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare eye cream

As the skin under your eyes is 20 times thinner than the rest of your body, it is particularly delicate and susceptible to drying out. On top of that, if you have dry skin, then your eye area will really struggle to retain moisture. Using the Eye Boost Cream is an essential step. 

Its fast-absorbing formula will lock in moisture around your eye area, and make your tired, puffy under-eyes feel deeply hydrated and look brighter. 

Why It Works 

  • Elderflower extract helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles. 
  • Eyebright plant extract works to refresh tired, puffy eyes. 
  • Red seaweed creates a protective barrier that locks in moisture around the eye area. 

How To Use The Eye Boost Cream 

  • Using the nozzle, apply 3 dots of cream onto your under-eye area.
  • Gently pat it into your skin under your eyes and up towards your temples.

Step 4: Hydrate With Our 3-in-1 Rich Moisturizer 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Rich Moisturiser

Specifically formulated for dry skin, this moisturizer boasts a rich and extra-thick formula that will hydrate even the driest skin and help it to retain that moisture. It will also have a plumping effect and act as a primer to create a great base for your makeup.

Why It Works 

  • Hyaluronic acid keeps your complexion looking plump and hydrated. 
  • Camelina oil leaves your skin looking and feeling supple, nourished and healthy. 
  • Inca inchi oil supports your skin’s natural barrier and helps to keep it feeling moisturized. 

How To Use The 3-in-1 Rich Moisturizer 

  • Massage a pea-sized amount onto your dry face and neck. 
  • Allow it to sink in for 45 seconds before applying makeup.

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Dry Skin Evening Routine 

Step 1: Cleanse With Our Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Daily Micellar Gel Cleanser

This cleanser is great for dry skin too, as its gel formula won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Instead, it effectively removes makeup, as well as dirt and impurities from the dayBetter yet, the non-drying formula will leave your skin feeling hydrated, nourished and refreshed.

Why It Works 

  • Micelles help to cleanse away dirt and excess oils from your pores. 
  • Blueberry seed oil works to hydrate and nourish your skin. 
  • Cactus stem extract helps to soothe and moisturise your complexion.

Step 3: Nourish And Brighten With Our Night Serum 

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Night Serum

Did you know that your skin repairs itself whilst you sleep? That’s why overnight treatments can make such a difference to your skin. We’d recommend using our Night Serum to make the most of your beauty sleep. Deeply hydrating and revitalising, it will nourish and brighten your complexion overnight. One of our trialists said:

I adore this product! It is the best serum I have ever tried. It leaves my skin so smooth, feeling so pampered, hydrated and clear looking.*

Why It Works 

  • Glycolic acid makes your skin more even and illuminated.  
  • Blueberry oil leaves skin feeling hydrated and nourished.

 An Extra Weekly Pamper: Exfoliating Clay Scrub


Whilst you shouldn’t exfoliate every day if you have dry skin, it is still an important step of your skincare routine. We’d recommend doing it once a week with our Exfoliating Clay Scrub. It will gently buff away dead skin cells, deeply cleanse your pores and restore your complexion’s radiance. 

Why It Works 

  • A rice exfoliator gently buffs away dead skin cells. 
  • Cornish clay deeply cleanses your pores. 
  • Lactic and glycolic acids restore your complexion’s radiance and make it feel energised. 

How To Use The Exfoliating Clay Scrub 

  • As an exfoliator: At least once a week use gentle circular motions to apply an almond-sized amount onto damp skin, focusing on your nose and t-zone. Massage it into your skin for 30 to 40 seconds, then rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a towel. 
  • As a mask: Apply a smooth layer onto your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a towel. 

Glossy TipWhen you exfoliate, you expose delicate skin that is easy to dry out, so make sure that you follow your full cleansing, toning and hydration routine after exfoliating.
