GLOSSYBOX December 2011

Ho Ho Ho! Firstly sorry for the lack of blog posts this week - It was my Birthday on Sunday so I have been away for a couple of days! I have a few posts coming up - Last Minute Xmas Present Ideas; Aussie Surprises; Festive Glitter Nails & some sneak product peeks! 




Today I got a nice surprise waiting for me when I arrived home - December's GLOSSYBOX! I wasn't expecting the box so it was very thoughtful of the Glossybox team to send it to me. If you are not aware, Glossybox is a subscription package that sends you a box of 5 luxury beauty samples beautifully wrapped to your door to try out every month for the price of £10 per month + postage & packaging then if you like you are able to buy the full size product discounted. You can read more about Glossybox here and I reviewed last month's box here



December's box is a little different as it is a Special Edition Christmas box to get you in the festive spirit and it is Part 2 of their Christmas Gift Guide! As usual everything is beautifully wrapped, but as you can see this month's box is not pink, it's glossy red which I absolutely love and inside everything is wrapped in white tissue paper - very festive! So more importantly let's get on to what's inside...





Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle Mini Polish with Stripper to Go Sachet
Although this is classed as a mini sized polish (worth roughly £10) I would say it is a pretty generous size and the full size version is a whopping £16 which is expensive for a nail polish! I have heard great things about Deborah Lippmann and been wanting to try her polishes for some time so I am very pleased to receive this. 'Razzle Dazzle' is a darkened raspberry red with glitter and it is the perfect shade for the festive and winter season. This polish will definitely be featuring in a NOTD over Christmas I absolutely love it!  Deborah has just recently launched her nail polish range at House of Fraser in the UK with some gorgeous shades particularly the glitter polishes! The polish came with a Deborah Lippmann lavender Stripped to Go Sachet (worth £2.33) which is a handy polish remover finger nail mitt which will be great to pop in my handbag for any emergency polish removal situations


Rituals Foaming Shower Gel in Fujiyama (Mandarin & Mint)
I have tried Rituals Foaming Shower Gels before and love them so another product I am happy to receive and this is a full sized product (worth £6.50).  You only need to squirt out a small amount of gel and it instantly foams up into loads of luxe lather and leaves skin silky soft & smooth.  Mandarin & Mint probably wouldn't of been a scent that would of appealed to me normally but I am pleasantly surprised, it's gorgeous and unusual scent but fresh and the smell reminds me very much of Christmas. 


MEMEME Seventh Heaven
This is a 10ml size sample pot (worth £5) of the face base - a primer and moisturiser all in one quite similar to the Bobbi Brown version. It has a fresh citrus scent and is used underneath makeup and foundation to prep and smooth skin and give a nice healthy glow. 


Cargo Classic Lipgloss in Las Vegas
I have tried a few Cargo products and they have been great quality and this is a lip gloss with a new formulation - long lasting, high-shine, moisturising without being sticky. The shade I received was 'Las Vegas' which is a pretty pink champagne with shimmer. I believe this is a mini -sized lipgloss so good to pop into handbags or travel with, the full size is priced at £10. 


Blink + Go Hi-Definition Black Mascara 
I have tried a Blink + Go heated eyelash curler about 10 years ago and it worked a treat so I am excited to try this mascara as I have high hopes it will be as good. It is another full sized product (worth £14.99) and promises longer, thicker, sexier lashes, flake-free and another added bonus is it's waterproof.


Overall I am very impressed with this month's box, in fact I think it is one of the best boxes to date! The star products being the Deborah Lippmann Nail polish and the Rituals Foaming Shower Gel for me and I am very excited to try the Blink + Go mascara. This month's box had a nice variation of products, contained three full sized products, and an added bonus sample. 


I have roughly totted up the value of the products this month and it comes to over £65! So for £10 plus P&P is it definitely worth the money if you enjoy sampling high-end products and it's a nice little treat each month. I would like to thank the Glossybox team for generously sending me the box as a surprise! Did you receive this month's Glossybox? What were your thoughts?

  41. I have the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick and it is INCREDIBLE. It's one of the few products I can't live without: even just a quick brush over your cheekbones brightens up your whole face. I love it. And it lasts FOREVER so it's really good value for money too.standby power controller
