I know this post is way overdue as I received this box 2 weeks ago or so, but I have been so busy working all day and getting all my Christmas shopping done.
I was working all of last week so on most days, I had to go to town after work to get my family some presents. I still had 2 presents to wrap up on Christmas eve! Talk about last minute!
But it all went well and I had a good Christmas with my family.
Okay, lets get on to the goodies!
The theme for this month's box was all things Christmasy! You can immediately tell by the different coloured box that we got this month. A lovely sleek silver box. I love their boxes! They are so strong and good quality. I have used some for storing some make up products and my nail varnishes :)
It looks so good and tastey. You can really sense the Christmas feel to these boxes with the silver look and the decorations of the paper inside with the silver stars. I love stars, so I thought this looked so pretty.
Instead of getting a card stating all the products, it came with a big A3 sized (I think) paper that was folded up. It has more information inside it with discount codes, information on the themed box and bigger images of the products and their description. I wonder if this is the new layout not or if it's just for this month, we shall see!
Let's get started on the products that came in this month's box!
Seche Nail Lacquer
Full Size Price: £9.95 for 14ml
I am happy to say that this is a good start! I love this nail polish. The colour is so pretty and cute! It's a baby pink with silver glitter/shimmers. So glad I got this in my box. And in a full size! Such a gorgeous shade of pink.
Conditioning Whipped Cream
Full Size: 200ml - £14.79
Hmmm, by the name of this product, it sounds like something you would want to eat with your strawberries! But no, it's a leave in conditioner for your hair and treats, protects and strengthens your hair. Sounds lovely!
I got the 100ml size sample in my box, which is more than enough to get a good feel for the product. I have not heard of this brand yet, but will definitely give this a go! Just need to stop being lazy on my hair care and skin care regimes!
True Colour Lipstick
Full Size: £4.99
One word for this is... WOW! The colour of this lipstick is so rich and out there. But in a good way. You would need to be brave enough to wear this as it is a dark red. Reminds me of vampire-ish themed lip stick. Maybe I could wear a light lip gloss over it to even out the colour. You can probably tell that I am not so brave with lip sticks. I always go for the safe options like, pinks. Other than that, the colour is pretty and it does glide on very well on the lips.
Night Intensive Cream
Full Size: £9.99
Yet another that I have not heard about. That's the joy of beauty boxes. Discovering different brands that you would not have heard about otherwise. This brand has been established as one of the leading skincare brands for sensitive skin. It must be good then! :)
By: Mary Greenwell
Full Size: 100ml - £90
A perfume sample from Mary Greenwell's perfume - Lemon. Not a fragrance that I would go for, but it's not that bad. The smell has a mixture of lemon and also a tint of citrus. But mostly, it smells almost like soap for some reason. Maybe it's just me???
Ok, there are the 5 products!
However, Glossybox was kind enough to throw in an extra product!
Glossy Pink Blush
This blush is quite pigmented, so it can be easily blended into the skin for a soft pink tone for the cheeks!
And there is the December edition of Glossybox. And the last box of 2012!
Wow, this year really has flown by!
Hope you enjoyed reading. If you have any questions about the products, please do let me know in the comments section and I will get back to you.
Hope you all had a great Festive Season :D
