This months box had the theme of 'The Glossy Wishlist'.

So, what did i get?

I haven't done my usual massive GlossyBox post this time round, mainly because of how disappointed I am. I'm not saying that this months box was all bad, but for the last few months, I have been less and less impressed with my GlossyBoxes. 

Last months box was absolutely appalling, and I was kind of hoping, with all the complaints they had over various Social media platforms and undoubtedly some emails too, that they would really step it up this month. This month was definitely better than last month, but not quite hitting the mark like it used to.

For some reason this month, my box took nearly 5 days to get to me after it was dispatched. GlossyBox are not at fault on that, but because I am impatient, I wanted to get an idea of what would be coming in the box. I have said it before, and it is always a mistake checking other peoples boxes before yours arrived, more often than not, you will be disappointed. The boxes can be really inconsistent from person to person. 

The products other people received this month, in my opinion, are more suited to me, and so many people received them, so I don't understand why my box was different. For instance, others received nail polish, I received lipstick. I don't use lipstick but love nail polish and this is on my Beauty profile and has been stated in my Surveys.

Yes, there were 4 full sized samples and yes the 5th item was Vichy and I do adore Vichy products. So that and the Yves Rocher Hand Cream saved the box. 

I really look forward to when my GlossyBox arrives and I know that the have had lulls before, so for now, I'm going to stick with them. Plus, next month is the Christmas box and that one is normally the best of the year. Fingers crossed.

Did you get anything different in your GlossyBox this month? Or Do you subscribe to a different beauty box and how is their consistency?
