December Special Edition GlossyBox

I have literally been bursting with excitement to reveal this months GlossyBox with you all and i have had it since Friday..its been a long weekend :p

I think you all would have noticed by now but this months GlossyBox is a special edition Christmas box and its not in the signature dusty pink box its RED! I absolutely love the colour its so bright and glossy (no pun intended ;p) and to me feels a lot more luxurious plus its always nice to have a change and mix it up a bit.

Now the November box was Part 1, the foundations for the Christmas boxes and now the December box is the fun and sparkly one..the one to really get you in that festive mood and to really sprinkle on the glitter.

To me this box has been seriously thought out as it contains an array of items you 100% need for a Christmas Party!

Shall i just stop waffling on and get to the products???

Ok then...

Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lip Gloss
I believe there will be 5 different shades shared around everyones box and the shade i got was Paris...perfect name and perfect shade. A rosy pink with a slight shimmer. Such a beautiful lipgloss, glides on effortlessly and leaves the lips silky smooth and not with a huge sticky mess like most lipglosses. The perfect handbag/clutch size as well.

Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle Mini Nail Varnish & Stripped To Go Sachet
A deep purple pink colour jam packed with huge amounts of small finely milled that will take an age to take off but you just cant stop wearing and staring at. Lucky for us also included in a handy nail polish remover finger mitt. I haven't used this set yet as i don't think i will get away with the colour at work so keep and eye out for a NOTD soon.

FAB Face Cleanser
This really is a FAB i am on a roll with these aren't i?? Ok i will stop now! Seriously though this is such a gentle, mild cleanser which is suitable for all skin types. It removes surface oils, skin toxins, make-up, dirt and grime. It is also said to reduce redness and skin reactivity with regular use..i haven't used this enough yet to really see that happening but this this generous sample size of 1.0 oz I'm hoping in the next few weeks i will see a different. It is also paraben free which is always a bonus!

Nouveau Lahses Noir Mascara
Now I'm sure you are all so intrigued and excited about this because i know i was. A mascara in a GlossyBox?? I think this is an exciting first!! This mascara is said to be a quick drying flake free formula for dramatic volume from just one application with excellent staying power. For me personally it did give me dramatic volume but not from just one application, it took two but that's OK as i always use two coats of any mascara. It was definitely flake free and the brush itself is doesn't clump mascara on it and its a nice medium sized brush. It was quick drying and the staying power was great. I also love the classy black metal packaging which i just realised being the fabulous blogger i am didn't take a picture of..please forgive!! I will do a separate post for you with pictures if you like.

Rituals Foaming Shower Gel
I did wonder why this months GlossyBox was so super duper heavy and it was because of this bad boy. A full size Rituals Foaming Shower gel. Again i believe everyones will be different as there is six available but i got the Yogi Flow Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil. I was really happy with the scent i got as i love anything scented with almonds. This does exactly what it says on the tin..a unique foaming shower gel which leaves the skin silky soft and smooth. My boyfriend was happy to see this in the box and quickly snapped it up to join his cosmetics in the!!

Now wasn't that box amazing?? A real mix of everything make-up, nails and skincare everything you need to prep yourself for a night out and with that added bit of sparkle!!

Once again i am really happy with my GlossyBox this month and i really cant wait to see what new amazing boxes they bring out in the new year.

Well done for an amazing year GlossyBox hope you all have a great Christmas and here is to the New Year!

  6. I unsubscribed from Glossybox after the last one as I couldn't afford to keep paying for it, expecially so close to Christmas :( That Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish looks gorgeous though, definitely the best thing in the box for me :)
