Glossy Box is an innovative after care product using completely natural ingredients to combat inflammation, redness and ingrown hair associated with waxing and shaving. This rich cream dries to a powder like finish to not only protect you from unwanted irritation, but to also provide an anti-chaffing barrier to keep you dry and fresh. The scent is reminiscent of fresh cucumber and Tahitian gardenia
Cucumber oil: The oil itself is rich in linoleic, or omega-6, fatty acids, as well as vitamins B1 and C, tocopherols, and phytopherols. These nutrients, both collectively and individually, are believed to be effective for detoxifying the skin, retaining moisture, preventing aging, and deep cleansing pores. Since the acids found in cucumber oil also have anti-inflammatory properties, when applied topically, cucumber oil can help reduce the inflammation caused by those skin ailments and others.
Monoi oil: Monoi is an indulgent fragrant concoction made by steeping Tiare flowers, a variety of gardenia indigenous to French Polynesia, in locally sourced coconut oil. The flowers contain high levels of methyl salicylate, known for its purifying and anti-inflammatory qualities (it’s related to salicylic acid, from which aspirin and many acne treatments are derived), and during the typically 15-day maceration, those active properties are transferred to the oil. The salicylate will naturally exfoliate the top layer of skin, helping to keep ingrown at bay.
Hazelnut has been called the pore-reducing oil and acne-fighting oil because of its unique properties. A high content of catechins and tannins (healthy flavonoids) make this oil a dry or astringent oil that feels smooth and toning on the skin. The astringent properties help absorb oils and shrink pores, while the antibacterial components go to work battling skin bacteria to help reduce blocked pores and keep ingrown hairs from infection.
Coconut oil: Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids such as capric acid, caprylic acid and lauric acid. The fatty acids have disinfectant and anti-microbial properties, perfect ingredient to avoid infections after waxing. Coconut oil is high in vitamin E, which is known for its skin healing properties. The triglycerides in coconut oil help to keep moisture from escaping from the skin, which aids in retaining softness and suppleness
