Glossybox December 2013

Hello and welcome to this months Glossybox review the last one for 2013!

So I was pleased to see that the packaging this month had a Christmas theme rather than just being the standard box that I normally receive.

I should add that I had already opened my box prior to doing this post but due to the time of year I have only just gotten round to writing up my post- which also means I have managed to misplace the information card that came with this one- doh!!


That is the outer and inner but what was in the box...


Not a bad box overall my only disappointment was the sample sachets as to me these are things I can pick up in stores for free!

Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara Smoky Black
This did actually come in some packaging but in my eagerness to try it out I forgot to take a photo first!! I have to admit I really like this mascara as I have been recently using No7 Stay Perfect but I think this may replace it as my current favorite. It has quite a decent brush and doesn't go clumpy when you apply it and does give my lashes some volume. So overall a winner! If you want to try this most high street stores have it for sale at £7.99.

Wilkinson Sword Intution Naturals 

 I must admit when I first saw I had a razor I was a bit disappointed but when I thought about it actually this is something I am keen to try as I only really wet shave my legs. The idea behind this razor is that you don't need to use a separate gel or foam as it has a built in soap around the blades that lathers and moisturizes as you shave. I shall be interested to see how it performs, if you fancy trying this it is £6.49.

Yin Yang Rich Skin Food

 These are the two samples that I was a bit disappointed to receive as to me I can pick something like this up on the high street for free. I have to admit this is not a brand I am familiar with but they can be bought from Holland and Barrett for £20.59 for a 50ml bottle. I haven't as yet tried these but I will give them a go over Christmas and see what they are like.

Seche Nail Varnish Iconic

I was pleased to receive this as this is a brand of nail polish that I have never tried and I look forward to giving it a go. The colour is called Iconic and it is darker than you see in the picture with a lovely shimmer in it. Having done a quick google search it would appear this retails for £9.99.

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Company Lip Gloss
Again this is another brand I have never used and actually I had never heard of (bad blogger!). This is a lovely lip gloss in a nude colour and gave my lips a lovely sheen great for everyday use. This is just a 4ml sample but if you wanted to give one a whirl the full size version retails for £12.00.

Sadly I think my next Glossybox which is due in January will be my last for awhile as due to finances I need to start cutting back and that is one of the things that will have to go. I have enjoyed receiving the boxes as I love the thrill of never knowing what I might get and having the chance to discover new brands.

Thanks for reading!
