Christmas Glossybox

I received the Christmas Glossybox this afternoon, after looking forward to it since November's box arrived. I was pleased to see the red box which makes a nice festive change to the usual pink one. I was also pleased to see two full size products in there, the Blink + Go Eyeshadow and Blush palette (worth £14.95) and the Rituals shower gel (worth £6.50). The shower gel is Indian Rose and Sweet Almond Oil scented and smells gorgeous! It's a foaming gel too, which is one of my favourites. Unfortunately, the colours in the Blink + Go palette are really not to my taste, so I'm sending this off to Laura as I know she'll use it a lot more than I will! I love the idea of the eyeshadows and the blusher in one set though, it's a great size to pop in your handbag.

The three sample size products that I received were a Bionova Eye Wrinkle Treatment, a Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lip Gloss and a Deborah Lippmann Mini Nail Polish in Shade 'Razzle Dazzle'. I probably won't ever use the lip gloss as it's not really my colour, so I'll be giving that away too I couldn't get a decent close up of this. The wrinkle treatment is meant for women who are over 25 and I'm only 22 - I would have been better off with the spot treatment that some other people got, but I won't let it go to waste and I'll use it anyway. The nail varnish however, was my favourite product in the box. I've heard a lot about Deborah Lippmann polishes and this one is such a lovely festive colour. This also came with a 'polish remover finger nail mitt' which I'm looking forward to using as it sounds quite unusual.

Overall, I think that this was quite a good box. It was packaged nicely and I will get a lot of use out of the shower gel and the nail polish. If I'd received the other available colours in the palette then I would have got a lot of use out of that as well. It's definitely worth the £12.95 that it cost me anyway.

There's still a few of the Christmas boxes left, so subscribe here if you want one!


  1. I'm really hoping I get the blush and eyeshadow palette rather than the mascaras people are getting but either way, still a good box! x

  2. I'm waiting for mine to arrive (I did only order it yesterday, so this isn't a massive surprise, aha) but excited about the nail varnish in particular. The remover pads seem to be such a good idea to have in your purse just in case xxx

  3. This box looks great. I like how it's more make-up based than November's box and I'd definitely use that shower gel. x

  4. Oh I like this months, looks like some nice stuff :) xx

  5. These glossybox's are looking better and better each month! I wanna start getting them now, just cause they look so cool, I like unwrapping surprises hahahah x

  6. I really do love that nail varnish colour, it's oh-so pretty! The glitter is so perfect for Christmas, too!
