January Special Edition Valentines GLOSSYBOX ♥

Ok Ok i know i said last month that i was literally bursting with excitement to share the December GLOSSYBOX box with you but this month is literally on another level!!! I am bursting at the seems, its has been the longest couple of days everrrrr as i have had this box since Thursday but can now finally share it with you.

I guess you of have probably noticed that this months box is HOT PINK!!!!!!! 
Its not in its signature dusty pink box but like the special December Red box GLOSSYBOX have pulled out all the stops with a bright Hot Pink Box for Valentines Day.

I have just got to put it out there now......

I am literally in love with the hot pink box and really really really wish hope and pray that GLOSSYBOX may make this permanent......pleeeeeease ;)
It makes it so super unique and i think any girl would be happy with the colour combination...don't you agree?

The baby pink stuffing, grey ribbon and super cute hot pink heart really make this box something special and all the colours together look so cute and i am going to definitely keep this box out on my dressing table for the whole world to see!

So on to the products in this months box...

Davines Authentic Moisturising Balm - This is a moisturising, organic, safflower oil based balm with a trebel action. It can be used on hair, face and body. You can use it as a make-up remover and also you can use it for an intense body moisturiser on damp skin. You can also use it on the ends of your hair for intense moisture. Its such a versatile product and with a generous sample of 75ml you really can get to try out the all possibilities and find out whats best for you!

Davines Authentic Cleansing Nectar - Again a really versatile product for body and hair. This is a super moisturising shower gel with an oily texture. It can also be used as a shampoo however if you suffer with oily hair i would say this isn't for you. I am really interested in Davines as a brand now that i have been introduced to a few products. I love that the formula's are made from 98-100% natural origin ingredients. They also smell really lovely with a hint of citrus, floral and cedarwood!

FAB Gentle Body Wash - Slightly disappointing that there is 2 body wash products in this months box however i have been really impressed by FAB products from a previous sample in a previous box and i am really loving this body wash. It is great for my sensitive skin and with only a slight scent my skin is really loving it. I just wish there wasn't 2 body wash products in the box :(

Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner - I was really excited to see this product in my box as i have been so interested by Eyeko since they had a make over as i loved all of their original products and have wanted to try some of the newer products for a while. In my box was a skinny eyeliner in the colour 'powder pink' From the swatch above you may think that the eyeliner is not even visible and so not pigmented however as its such a pale pink shade it works perfectly in the water line to really brighten the eye. I wear a flesh toned pencil in my water line pretty much every day so even though 'powder pink' isn't the most adventurous bold colour it look gorgeous on the water line. It works even better than my current pencil of choice as this has so much more of a pink tone to it and makes my green eyes really stand out!!

Murad Hybrids Skin Pefecting Primer Dewy Finish - This is a 2-in-1 problem solver which provides a shine free finish that creates a smooth canvas. Hiding any imperfections and pores whilst giving a dewy healthy look. This has adaptive technology meaning the flesh tone product adapts to your skin tone. It is an oil free formula which is also available in a matte finish rather than a dewy finish. I have some bad boy pores on my nose and this really helps to minimise them which i love!!

Also included is a cute GLOSSYBOX mint which you can see in one of the pictures above.

I will be honest this isn't my favourite GLOSSYBOX products wise i adore it but i feel there have been better products in other boxes. I have also seen that there has been some Clarins products in other boxes this month and to be honest i am soooo disappointed i didn't receive those products as i love Clarins!! This is the only negative i have about GLOSSYBOX is that not all boxes are the same which is such a shame.

Don't get me wrong there are 3 stand out products for me which i have been using since i received the box and love but there have been other products i have loved more in previous months.

I still get uber excited for my GLOSSYBOX every month do you??
