January Glossybox

Hi Guys,

The first Glossy Box of 2014! Plus Glossybox has had a makeover to well make it more Glossy! I have to admit I really love the old style boxes, I think this new style is more Birchbox in design, I like the new design but the old style will always have a place in my heart!

This months Glossybox theme is Back to Basic's and looking at it, keeping fit, A very common new years resolution, I cant say its one I'm very good at, I'm too much of a chocoholic haha. The actual Glossy Mag this month is quite different, with fitness tips and smoothie ideas, I do like the sounds of that!

When I got my Glossybox it did seem to be rather light, which never really seems like a good thing...

1) Vaseline Essential Moisture Lotion - £4.99 for 400ml
This fits the theme as I guess most people would consider it a basic, I like how its a good size for traveling with but wish it was just that little bit bigger, it smells nice and its something I'll use.

2) The Vintage Company Floral Slanted Tweezers- £8
I'm quite pleased to see these in the box,as my make up collection is where tweezers go to die, I've seen a few bits on the blogs and in Magazines about the Vintage Cosmetic Company, never tried anything but these do seem like really nice, pretty as well, slanted, weighty tweezers.

3) Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream - £13.50 for 33g
I've heard about this before as it seems to be quite the cult product, its never been something I think I'd pick up, but I'm excited to try it now I have it. I have very dry skin and this has a high glycerin content in it, so I'm hoping it'll help with hydration. I do wish the tubes were a little bit bigger but you do get two instead.

4) Antomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Wake - Up Under Eye Patches - £6 for 3 per pack
Antomicals products always have some of the best names but also the longest! I'm excited to try these after seeing Lilly Pebbles talk about a more expensive version, I've been intrigued by these types of eye patches, I really hope I like these and I think this could be my favorite thing in the whole box!

5) Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash- £10.25 for 250ml
I've had a few Balance Me products to try due to past Glossyboxes and magazines, but this has to be my favorite thing yet. I do love a good bath and you can use this as a Bubble bath, it does break my heart when I look at the price and I thought Lush can be expensive! I wish it was slightly bigger but it smells so good!

Overall I cant say its the best Glossybox I've ever seen, but the new design is growing on me and when you break it down the products inside really aren't that bad and are things I'd use.

  1. Ah the products look a little better than previous boxes, not bad! Glad you've got stuff you will actually use :) xx

  2. Truly 9 times out of 10 multitasking makes you significantly less viable than you would be on the off chance that you concentrated every one of your endeavors on performing one undertaking at any given moment. postscrib
