Sneak peek: March Pure Pampering GlowwBox

March Pure Pampering GlowwBox is now available!

Can you believe it? It’s March already! Even more exciting news is this means our new March GlowwBox is here!

This month we are so excited to present to you our March ‘Pure Pampering’ Edition. A GlowwBox that’s packed full of six products that we think are perfect for your pampering needs, you won’t just feel relaxed after using them but also truly spoiled!

This month we have an exciting product reveal for you! So exciting we couldn’t wait to let you know about it!

Sneak Peak: Try the new Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Extreme!

Sneak Peak: Try the new Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Extreme in the March GlowwBox!

For the first time ever, we have a Philip Kingsley product for you to enjoy (we told you we were spoiling you this month!). The Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Extreme is the brand new hair conditioner (just released!) which is suitable for over processed, porous and all variations of African-Caribbean hair and you’ll be trying the 50ml version worth £8!

When I got the opportunity to try this out, I was very excited. It claims to strengthen and repair the damaged hair, and whilst I can’t testify to that (I’ll have to use it a few more times!), it has left my hair feeling soft as well as helped in de-tangling my strands.

As a leave-in conditioning spray, you apply this to wet hair after you have shampooed and conditioned. I was pleasantly surprised as it did not leave any unpleasant residue in my hair and my hair felt shiny after my first wash.

This is a great product and I can definitely see myself making this a staple in my hair wash regime! The perfect hair pampering session!

To try out the Philip Kingsley Daily Defence Extreme and the 5 other lush pamper products in our March ‘Pure Pampering’ GlowwBox, click here and join us today!

How can I reduce my hyperpigmentation?

One of the things we love to do here at GlowwBox is find answers to your most pressing beauty questions.

In our new in-box magazine ‘Gloww’ featured in our January ‘Best of British’ Edition, we shared some solutions to an important question on how to deal with hyperpigmentation.

So read below for an excerpt of some of the advice we shared on how you could improve hyperpigmentation.

Hyperpigmentation is caused by our body producing too much of the brown pigment called melanin. By doing so it produces a darkened area of skin which is what we refer to as hyper pigmentation.

Now, one of the most frequented myths told by people with darker skin tones, is that they do not need to use sunscreen. Wrong! One of the triggers of hyperpigmentation is exposure to sunlight especially for those who are more predisposed to this skin condition. Sun protection is a must for ALL skin types and in ALL seasons. Choose a high SPF (30 or above) and make sure you use it daily.

Be gentle with your skin and seek professional advice if you are unsure!
