December Miss Glossybox Opening & Review


I boarded the Glossybox train a couple of weeks ago and i was seriously excited when my December Glossybox was handed to me this morning. I love the fact that you don't know what to expect inside and plus i heard you can get some quite high end/pricey products and for only £10 a month, you can't really complain!

Sooooooo let's open this little box of secrets shall we?

** I must apologise for the absolutely shite lighting. I took the photo's really quickly before i went to work and haven't had chance to edit them. Lesson learnt **

REALLY loving the packaging...good job Glossybox, good job


Right then, let's see what's inside....Drum roll please.....

So...? Sinful Body Spray

Item 1 - So...? Sinful body spray - My very first Glossybox hasn't started well. I have come across this brand before i never like it. My friend once bought me a gift set of these body sprays and ( i'm really sorry to say this Norms ) but i threw them away because they all smelt awful and this one is no exception. It's way too floral and overpowering, it smells cheap and generic. Really not a fan and it's going straight in the bin. Yuk.

Little Mix Nail Wraps ( Jade )

Item 2 - Little Mix Nail Wraps ( Jade ) - Ooooo well things are improving! I didn't know Little Mix had brought out their own nail i do. I'm a big nails fan and i love a good nail wrap, these are so cute! On the back, Jade has given a little description about why she chose the design ( hearts, braces and bowties ) and how she loves the tuxedo manicure..nice touch. These are really nice and my daughter is a massive Little Mix fan so she swiped them as soon as she saw them.

Lacoste Touch Of Pink perfume sample
Item 3 - Lacoste Touch Of Pink perfume sample - I'm really chuffed about this because i used to have a bottle of this a few years ago and i was that obsessed with it that when i finished it, i would carry it around with me in my bag so i could smell it. Weirdo. Still like the smell after all this time and as expected, my daughter liked it too and it's now hers. Will anything of this box be mine?

Jelly pong pong 2 in 1

Item 4 - Jelly pong pong 2 in 1 Eyeliner & Shadow - Well this is new! I've never seen this brand? If it's a brand or this product before. It doesn't have a name for the colour but it is a sort of chocolatey brown. It's quite small, not what you would expect for an eye pencil but let me tell you, this little pencil is pigmented within an inch of it's life! ( See swatch below ). Generally, products that claim to serve 2 purposes never do but after swatching this, i can safely say that this does what it says on it's little paper casing. Lovely little product.

Swatch of the Jelly pong pong 2 in 1 pencil. Look how pigmented it is!

Dermalogica Foaming Wash
Item 5 - Dermalogica Breakout clearing Foaming Wash - OH MY GOD I JUST WET MYSELF! Ok slightly exagerating and overreacting but what an end to the bag of goodies! Dermalogica! I have the worst dry skin in the world and unfortunately when it's my time of the month ( sorry if TMI ) i get the most horrendous spots. There is no product on the market that sorts both out at the same time but this looks like the answer to my prayers. I have heard so much about Dermalogica but i've also seen their prices and they're ridiculous but when your skin is as bad as mine is, you can be desperate enough to pay stupid prices to fix your problems. Thanks to Glossybox i don't have to HOORAH! I can't wait to try this stuff out, seriously thrilled and it will be getting it's very own review and blog post in the near future oh yes.

So overall for my first Glossybox i'm quite impressed! Liking 4 out of 5 items isn't bad, it's a lucky dip at the end of the day and as i said before, you can't go wrong when you pay £10 for products that are worth at least £50+. Looking forward to the next one now.
