December 2012 GLOSSYBOX

When I arrived home yesterday I was greeted with December GLOSSYBOX. This month's theme is Bejewelled Christmas' and as usual the products come beautifully packaged in a limited edition silver box with star print tissue, silver shredded tissue and sticker to fit with the theme. If you are looking for a last minute Christmas Present or a treat for yourself then GLOSSYBOX are offering 30% off their subscription until 24th Dec 2012. To take advantage of this fab offer then simply visit GLOSSYBOX and enter the code XMAS30 at the checkout.

What's in this month's box.....

SECHE Nail Lacquer in Elegant (*full size* worth £14)
I did used to like the Seche Vite Top Coat, but found it goes gloopy after a few months, so didn't bother to re-purchase. This new line of coloured polishes from Seche promise highly pigmented colour for one coat coverage and a satin smooth finish. I received the shade 'Elegant' which on first glance looks dated and a bit of a blah colour in the bottle - but you should never judge before trying I guess! It also smells so strongly of chemicals which is quite off-putting :(

Sleek Makeup True Colour Lipstick (*Full Size* £4.99)
I am so happy to receive this in my box as haven't tried Sleek lipsticks before and these shades promise to brighten and flatter your skin tone for a bold statement lip! Including Make Up in beauty boxes is always difficult as it's not going to suit everyone. I love the packaging and I received the shade 'coral reef' which is perfect for me and can't wait to try this out over the weekend.

Milk Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream (worth £7.40)
This is a new brand that I have just been introduced to but not yet had chance to try out but this product looks interesting! Firstly I love that it's in a tin can similar to squirty cream and it smells good enough to eat! This is a no rinse conditioner and protective creamy foam to use on damp hair before styling to condition and preserve hair colour - excited to try this!

LEMON by Mary Greenwell (worth £2.70)
Perfume sample....I've said many times now perfume samples shouldn't count as a luxury item unless its a miniature sized bottle! I'm quite fussy about perfume but this perfume is not bad - I love the bold packaging to this brand and the citrus scent, though the full size bottle is pricey.

Sebmed Hydrating Body Lotion (worth 52p)
This is not a brand I'm familiar with and after looking on the ingredients list this body lotion contains alcohol and other cheap ingredients so this is one item I won't be trying unfortunately!

GLOSSYBOX Blusher in 'Glossy Pink'
It's a nice touch adding a bonus item, this is a dusky pink blush made by KRYOLAN and seems good quality.

This month's box contained a good mix of products, two of which were full size and a bonus item, although I feel without the addition of the bonus item this box would have felt sparse. I have totted up the value of the products and it comes to roughly £29.61 which for £10 (plus £2.95 P&P) is not bad! I am most pleased and excited about the Lipstick and Conditioning Hair Cream! You can find out more and order your own GLOSSYBOX here.

What do you think of this month's GLOSSYBOX? Did you receive anything different to mine? Are you a GLOSSYBOX subscriber?

  1. I got way the same as you except I got a mini rituals body lotion and a sachet of a really expensive moisturiser that's over £100 to buy full size. To be honest I wasn't that impressed as I was expecting a better Christmas box :( I feel like Novembers box was better than this.
