Glossybox December 2013


A couple of days ago a red parcel was delivered to my door, It was my monthly Glossybox*. I gleefully opened up the parcel intrigued to see what was inside. Once I retrieved it out of the postage box I saw a magazine followed by a matte red box with an image of Christmas tree made up of beauty products on which looked very festive. When I lifted the lid off of the box I was greeted to pretty red tissue paper with a candy cane pattern, white ribbon and leaflet with the list of products written on. Finally I untied the ribbon and could see the products buried within shredded green tissue paper.

Inside contains:

*Beautiful Movements Cosmetics ~ Nude Lip Gloss ~ This lip gloss (and brand) was created by former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt. It is made from jojoba oil and is non sticky. It feels a bit like a glossy lip balm as it feels as if it moisturises your lips. This cosmetic brand seems like one I want to try more of because they don’t use harsh chemicals but natural products and don’t test on animals or use any animal products. In the Glossybox you receive a 4ml sample size which is a great size for your little clutch bags! Regular size is 8ml and costs £12.

*Wilkinson Sword Intuition ~ Naturals Razor ~ This is a 3 in 1 razor which lathers, moisturises and shaves! You don’t have to add shower gel or shaving cream when using this razor, just water! It has 100% natural aloe and vitamin E in it and is hypo-allegenic, fragrance free, paraben free and is dermatologically tested. This is a full size product and retails at £6.49. I’m looking forward to trying this!

*Maybelline New York ~ Volum’Express Colossal Smokey Eyes Mascara ~ I really like this mascara and have been using it for years so I was glad to receive this full sized product (10.7ml) in this months box! It is a mascara with collagen and kohl effect pigments and says to plump lashes. I remember from previous times I’ve used this I preferred this mascara after about a week of use when it wasn’t so wet as it applied to the lashes better. This retails at £7.99.

*Seche ~ Nail Laquer ~ This nail varnish says to only need one coat and dries quickly. I have received it in the shade Blanc II which is a white. When I first saw it I thought it was a bit of a boring colour to receive but may come in handy for french manicures. This is another full sized product (14ml) and retails at £9.95

*Yin Yang Skincare ~ Rich Skin Food ~ This is a paraben free organic skin care moisturiser which says to nourish and repair fine, sensitive skin. This has come as a small sachet sample size (X2). These would be good to add to my collection of mini samples which are handy for holidays and short breaks so you can pack light. For the full sized product (50ml) it costs £19.50.

All in all I was quite happy with this months festive box. The Glossybox costs £10 a month (which includes P&P) which you can cancel at any time which I think is great! The full sized products in the box cost just under £25 alone so you’re getting a bargain!
