Let’s see what’s in the 2021 Glossybox Beauty Advent Calendar!
The calendar is in the form of a pretty marbled “chest” that opens up to reveal four slide-out drawers with pink ribbon pulls.
Each drawer is filled with a collection of numbered boxes, from 1 to 25.
So many little boxes! 😀
A full-color info booklet revealed the contents of every box and included photos, descriptions, tips, and retail prices for each one.
I’ve broken the items into groups/days of 5 to make things a little easier (for me anyway 😉 ).
NEOM Perfect Night’s Sleep Scented Candle ($18.50 value)
Candles are one of my favorite things to receive in a subscription box, so I was excited to see this inclusion! NEOM’s Perfect Night’s Sleep fragrance features a complex blend of 19 of the purest possible essential oils including English Lavender, Sweet Basil and Jasmine — all expertly blended to help you relax and prepare for sleep. Love it!
Authentic Beauty Concept Strong Hold Hairspray ($10 value)
This super fine and fast-drying hairspray delivers flexible hold and ensures great workability. Its formula is 100% vegan-friendly and free from micro plastics, mineral oil, parabens, and silicones. Fragrance notes include white peony, fresh leaves, rose, freesia blossoms, and powdery violet.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Energising Marine Cleanser ($16 value)
This energizing gel cleanser works to effectively remove daily grime, makeup and impurities while leaving skin with a youthful glow. Enriched with magnesium, zinc, copper, and a trio of acids, its advanced formula leaves the complexion looking beautifully revived and rejuvenated.
MakeUp Eraser in Original Pink ($20 value)
I’ve mainly seen the mini version of this in other subscription boxes, so I’m always taken aback by the size of this original version — it’s HUGE! (15.5 in. x 7.25 in. to be exact.) No matter the size, this thing does a crazy good job removing stubborn eye makeup with only a couple swipes. All you need to do is wet a section with warm water and gently rub in a circular motion. When it starts getting too “dirty”, pop it in the washer and it’ll be good as new.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask ($22 value)
Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is a “bouncy, breathable sleeping mask” infused with watermelon, hyaluronic acid, and AHA’s to hydrate, smooth and rejuvenate your skin. It can be used as both a sleep or wash-off mask. For sleep, apply a generous layer on skin as the final step of evening routine. Gently pat the mask into skin and wash in the morning. For a wash-off mask, spread a thick layer from forehead to chin. Rinse after 10 minutes.
Polaar The Genuine Lapland Hand Cream ($8 value)
Made in France using 96% natural ingredients, this nourishing hand cream covers your hands with a protective, invisible “glove” for 24 hours. A combination of arctic raspberries, cranberries and blackberries help to regenerate the skin and fight against extreme climatic conditions, while leaving behind a soft, fruity fragrance. The formula is both cruelty-free and vegan-friendly!
MCoBeauty Blush On Cheek Stick ($16 value)
Add a little pop of color and glow with this versatile Blush On Cheek Stick from MCoBeauty. Its long-wearing, buildable formula is great for highlighting your lips, cheeks, and even eyes when gently dabbed on your eyelids.
Using a radiance-inducing and pore refining formula, these Figs & Rouge Wonder Love Clarity drops work to gently exfoliate and unclog pores to ensure your complexion is clear and free of breakouts. Enriched with essential vitamins, hyaluronic acid, aloe and algae, this clarifying serum helps lock in moisture while also providing skin boosting, anti – inflammatory properties.
KAB Cosmetics Charming Lip Kit ($38 value)
This limited edition set from KAB Cosmetics includes both a gel liner and matching gloss. The liner is formulated to effortlessly glide onto the lips for flawless application, while the sleek gloss makes for a perfect finish. (Pro tip: Although the liner is cased in plastic, you can sharpen it like any other lip liner!)
Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum ($28 value)
I don’t wear perfume (or know how to properly describe it), so I’m using the description from their website: “Flowerbomb is an explosive floral bouquet. Unexpected. The essence of thousands of flowers gives rise to an ultra-feminine, delicious and sensual fragrance. A bouquet of tens of cattleyas, hundreds of sambac jasmine, thousands of freesia, and millions of rose petals enriched by an addictive scent of patchouli and vanilla.” The bottle is pretty. 😉
Afterspa Daily Facial Dry Brush ($20 value)
The Afterspa Daily Facial Dry Brush is a gentle dry brush with soft bristles to help drain lymphatic nodes, increase circulation, and reduce puffiness. It also provides gently exfoliation, removing dead skin cells for healthy looking skin.
Bellapierre Cosmetics Mini Kabuki Brush ($20 value)
Made with 100% synthetic hair, this vegan-friendly mini kabuki brush is perfect for all over product application. It distributes product evenly and quickly, making it ideal to use with powder, or to blend face makeup for a more natural look.

Key ingredients include hyaluronic acid to keep your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed all day long Inca inchi oil to support your skin’s natural barrier, and babassu oil to leave your complexion feeling soft and nourished.
Onekind Pore-fectionist Refining Facial ($10 value)
This triple-action treatment polishes, purifies and brightens skin in a matter of minutes. Its powerful salicylic acid works to unclog congested pores, pink kaolin and bentonite clays do a deep detox without leaving skin dry or tight, and lactic acid gently brightens dull, uneven skin for an instantly airbrushed appearance.
Fekkai Full Blown Volume Shampoo ($8 value)
Formulated to give hair extra volume, this shampoo lifts, detangles, and hydrates while leaving behind a light citrus scent. Key ingredients include French oak extract to protect against oxidative stress & free radicals, green coconut water for weightless hydration, and cottonseed oil to hydrate and detangle. It’s 100% vegan-friendly and free from sulfates, silicones, parabens, phthalates, and gluten.
Highly-pigmented and completely waterproof, Eye/Define is a smooth & smudge proof formula – even in the most humid of conditions. The formula is infused with shea butter, vegetable oils, and Vitamin E & C to keep the skin conditioned without causing eye irritations. A precise felt tip applicator allows easy & effortless movement for a smooth application to achieve the ultimate cat eye.
Earth Harbor Nebula Adaptogen Clarity Ampoule ($46 value)
Earth Harbor’s Nebula Adaptogen Clarity Ampoule is a lightweight, fast-absorbing formula specifically designed to help skin prone to acne, blemishes, and excess oil. Its advanced bioactive blend features sea lavender and ginseng adaptogens to feelings of infection, regulate sebum production, clear signs of congestion, and restore vibrancy.

Inspired by their best-selling powder, this liquid highlighter gives you an instant strobe-like glow. It can be used to enhance the high points of the face creating a natural, radiant glow or all over for a dewy skin finish. The lightweight formula can also be mixed with foundation or blush to add a brightening multi-dimensional shimmer.
(Note: Products varied for Day 18. The booklet listed a Cleo Noir Eyeshadow Duet valued at $16, but I received the item above.)
Deco Miami Nail Polish in “Tamale” ($8 value)
I love receiving nail polish in subscription boxes! “Tamale” is a tomato red shade that’s perfect for the holidays. Deco Miami is a woman-run company and all of their formulas are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. Yay!
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream ($5 value)
Don’t worry, that’s not dirt on the tube — it’s just “dust” from the black paper squiggles in the box. 😉 This fast-absorbing moisturizer provides instant relief and long-term hydration for dry, distressed skin and eczema with no greasy after-feel. It’s safe for all skin types and is clinically proven to immediately improve skin hydration by 169%!
Vitabrid C12 Facial Boosting Water + Dual Mask ($35 combined value)
Vitabrid C12 Facial Boosting Water is a gentle, hydrating toner with a powerful blend of peptides and hyaluronic acid triple complex that provides age-defying benefits, restores pH balance, and helps boost the effectiveness of your skincare regimen.

This pretty duo from Elaina Badro includes both an angled brush and blending brush. The angled brush is great for applying brow liner and eyeshadow, while the blending brush is ideal for creating soft color diffusion or defined blending.
