GlossyBox December!

Hi Guys,

Today I seem to of hit a bit of blogger block, I think mainly because Im sick. But I was very cheered up when my Glossybox came through the door! It's like an early Christmas present this month and it definitely looked like one, with its red ribbon and white and green wrapping paper style print!
I also just wanted to mention the really lovely response I got about my Glossybox Customer Care post, I wasn't really expecting it, I put it up more as a way to say thank you to Sam at Glossybox and It was lovely to get the response I have had. 
I was expecting big things from this box as its the Christmas one, however when I first opened it I was just a little bit disappointed. 
Essence Colour & Go Polish in Do you speak love? - €2.99 for 8ml
This is your typical blue toned berry red, perfect for this time of year. I do really love the name too, Essence has been a nightmare to get a hold of until it launched in Wilkinsons a few months back, Im very excited to have this in the box. It not a very fast drying polish though, but its a really good opaque colour, it just took me two coats, it has a very glossy finnish too.

Tresemme Renewal Hair & Scalp Treatment Shot - £5.50 for 4x15ml
Ive received a few of these from different Tresemme ranges before in previous boxes, I really enjoy them. They're basically a quick intensive treatment for your hair and they really work, this one left my hair feeling very soft and nourished, I was a bit dubious at first. They also smell AMAZING, my box actually smells of them which I love!

Bellapierre Cheek & Lip Stain in Coral - £12.99 for 5g
This really intrigues me as a cheek and lip stain is usually liquid, like Benefit's Benetint, this is a cream. Ive given it a quick go on the back of my hand, I really need to try it out properly. But I really like the effect it gives, Its a really nice natural flush. On the lips I wouldn't say it stains, but its very smooth and comfortable to wear, just not much colour pay off at all on the lips. I think I'd prefer it as a natural cream blush however.

Skin Pep Collagen Hydro Gel Face Mask- £19.99 for 5 Sheet Masks
Now Ive just noticed the mention of 'Snail Secretion' on the packet, can't say Im entirely sure how I feel about this. I have heard that snail slime does do wonders for the skin but Im still not sure.. It does contain Hyaluronic Acid which is fantastic for hydration. The Hydration part is what really appeals to me, but the anti ageing part Im not sure I really need just yet! Im also not a big user of sheet masks, plus you have to leave it on for 30-40 minutes!

Anatomicals Zap! Zap! Zap! Gets that Chap Day & Night Spot Stick - £3.79 for 7ml
I think Anatomicals always wins the biggest tongue twister product name haha! I was actually going to go and get the Origins Spot Remover as Ive had quite a few annoying break outs recently, I was very pleased when I realised this was in the box. Im really looking forward to giving it a go and seeing if it really works, I also love the fact it has a Night part and a Day part.

Once Ive actually really had a good go with these products Im actually really loving this box, The only thing Im not won over by is the Skin Pep Sheet Mask, everything else though is starting to look like a win in my book!
