I'm always so excited to rip off the tissue and see my new little treats. To be honest, for £10.00 a month, even if I don't like the products inside, it's still exciting. So here are the goodies January's box had to offer:
Doesn't it just look so pretty? The pink tissue and all the mini (some full-size) products. I am seriously in my element when I get these through the post. Check out the little sweet too, which even had 'Glossybox' wrote on it. A cute touch I thought. Here is a closer look at the products I recieved and my first thoughts on them:
Murad Skin perfecting primer: I was probably most excited to see this products in the box as I much prefer recieving make-up than skincare. I look forward to trying this out to see if it gives me the dewy finish it claims to on the box.
Weleda One Step Cleanser & Toner: I don't know what to make of this as it looks pretty strange. I opened the box and inside it is a strange milky looking liquid. I do need to cleanse and tone a LOT more than I do though, so I am definetely going to give it a try.
F.A.B Gentle Body Wash: To be honest, I wasn't impressed when I saw this product, I don't need anymore body washes and I think it is a bit of a boring product to recieve. I will still use it as you can never have enough body washes but I would of liked something slightly more interesting to try out.
ORLY Nail Lacquer: How cute is this mini nail polish? I was happy to see this prouct in the box as this shade of red is a colour i would normally choose. I love deep colours on the nails so this was a winner for me. I look forward to trying it out.
EYEKO Skinny Eyeliner: This was the only full-size product in this months box and I love it. The packaging is gorge. I did have better pictures than these but for some reason the laptop is uploading them upside down, stupid technology. Anyway, these eyeliners cost £9.50 to buy so already it is obvious that Glossybox has once again been a saving. I got the shade 'Emerald Green' which is a gorgeous deep green colour. I'm not sure how I will use it yet as I usually stick with black eyeliner, but it will be fun to have a play around and create some different looks with it.
Overall Thoughts: I'm in two minds about this months box. I do like the two make-up products and the nail polish I recieved but I wasn't massively excited about them. As for the skin-care products, I was a little disappointed. After seeing what other people got in their Glossybox, such as Clarins moisturiser and Davines Moisturising Balm, I was a little bit gutted I didn't recieve those products. I would get a lot more use out of those moisturisers than the skin-care products I recieved. However, this is the beauty of Glossybox, you never know what you will recieve. I'm sure some months I will love every single product and other months I might be a little disappointed. Either way, I still love the Glossybox concept and for £10.00 a month I can't really complain.
