December GlossyBox

Yay Christmas Box.

With pretty Christmas paper.

So, when it comes to GlossyBox, over the last few months, I have been pretty disappointed and I decided to wait until the Christmas box to see if they could bring their sexy back.

I'm quite happy to say that this was a pretty good box. There were a few hiccups, which I'll explain in a mo, but, yeah, I'm not hating it.

This is what was in my box, it's a good selection of stuff and I will definitely use all of it.

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics: Nude Lip Gloss- This jojoba rich, non sticky, Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Nude Lip Gloss is the perfect shade, essential for the festive party season.

RRP: £12 for 8ml. I received 4ml.

I love lipgloss, don't we all? The lighter shades are more my thing because I really don't suit dark or bright shades and so this is perfect for me. It was the first thing I tried from the box and I really love it. Its a very light lipgloss, and isn't sticky at all. The nude colour is gorgeous and very subtle. It is actually my favourite from the box.

Wilkinson Sword Intuition: Naturals Razor- Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals is a 3 in 1 razor that lathers, moisturises and shaves. Your party essential for ready to bare legs this Christmas.

RRP: £6.49. This is a full sized razor.
Shop here: Wilkinson Sword

When it comes to shaving my legs, I am terrible. I don't get my legs out pretty much ever and so it doesn't really matter that much, but I just buy whatever razor is on sale at the time and just shave them while I'm in the bath with no shaving cream or anything. At  £6.49, I would never ever buy this, that is way to expensive for a razor in my opinion, but, if it is really good then maybe the price is justified. I'll just have to try it and see.

Maybelline New York: Volum' Express Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara- Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara with collagen and kohl effect pigments, plumps lashes for a smokin' hot look.

RRP: £7.99 for 10.7ml. This is a full sized sample.
Shop here: Maybelline @ Boots

Yes, over my time with GlossyBox, I have received several different mascaras, but I have heard really good things about this mascara and as I normally concentrate on my eyeliner and mascara, I will definitely be trying this out.

Seche Nail Lacquer: Irresistible- Seche Nail Polish delivers pure colour saturation, allowing for one coat coverage and a satin smooth finish which dries quickly.

RRP: £9.95 for 14ml. This is a full sized sample.
Shop here: Seche @ Liberty

Yay nail polish. Again, it is along the same colour lines that GlossyBox seem to favour but still, yay. Seche polish, from my past experience, seems to be very high quality and is a one coater in the darker colours. Irresistible is a pretty dark raspberry colour, so kind of a pinky/red which will fit in well this festive season. With this being a full sized bottle, that normally costs £9.95, this one item has pretty much paid for the box itself.

Yin Yang Skincare: Rich Skin Food- This organic skin care moisturiser nourishes and repairs fine, sensitive skin.

RRP: £19.50 for 50ml. I received 2 sachets of 2ml each.
Shop here: Yin Yang Skincare

Hmmmm those sachets again. No, I don't like sachets. They tend to be free in magazines, from beauty counters or from the company websites and because there isn't much product in there, you cant really gauge the results. This wasn't the only problem with this item.

Having looked at the back of the sachet, I discovered that the expiry date for this item was 31st January 2012 ( ゚ Д゚). Luckily, GlossyBox seems to have picked up on this pretty quickly after the boxes went out, and I can understand why they wouldn't have before they were sent out, because they are glued onto cards, so they are not to blame, and after contacting the right people, they have resolved the issue quickly and will be sending out replacement products. 

Overall, this box was a good box and I am once again happy. Lets hope it continues.
The total value of this months box is around £32.00 which is fab. 

Right, I'm off to shave my legs and see if my legs are left looking naturally healthy. I won't hold my breath.
