~ GlossyBox December 2011 ~

This is my first purchase from glossybox and this month its in a special red box exclusively for the festive christmas period~ It is £10 subscription fee for the box filled with 5 beauty samples which includes one or more full sized products + £2.95 for shipping.

I loved the box that it came in and the packaging and ribbon made it look so classy and elegant :)

According to my beauty profile that i filled in, these were the products that were sent to me:

1. Rituals foaming shower gel: Hammam Delight FULL SIZE 200ml
It has a really special gel to foam technology which is very convenient and nice to use in the shower. It also smells very refreshing and leaves the skin very soft and moisturised
RRP: £6.50

2. Blink + Go eyeshadow and blush palette (Style 5):
Very compact packaging makes it perfect for people constantly travelling and it's dual layers makes it very versatile. It also has a nice large mirror which is always super conveniant to put inside your handbag! The colours are very pigmented, yet it can be quite powdery and needs a few layers to build up colour intensity. The blush colour is very nice and wearable which compliments most skintones, yet it can be quite chalky. A dual end sponge tip and brush applicator is provided but the quality is poor therefore i do no recommend using it since it may be a bit scratchy on your eyelids and cheeks.
RRP: £12.95

3. Deborah Lippmann - Razzle Dazzle mini nail varnish with 'stripper to go varnish remover':
Not really the colour that i would go for personally, but it seems like a very fun festive colour to put on and the glitter is relatively large so removing it may be a little more difficult, but i am not sure~ i will test it out in the future and review soon
RRP: £16.00

4. Cargo Classic lipgloss (Mini):
A light neutral shimmery beige colour. I really liked the consistency of it as it gave a nice glossy effect yet, it wasn't very sticky and it lasted for quite a long time. Only downside to this is that it made my lips peel a bit and dried out. 
RRP: £10.00

5. Nip + Fab: Spot Fix:
This is meant to work as a mattifying gel which helps to control shine by absorbing excess oil which is perfect for my oily skin. However, i haven't really noticed a dramatic difference in the reduction of spots even with the product containing salicylic acid. 
RRP: £15.95

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the next glossy box review!


  1. The products are full-sized or miniature?

    1. The nail polish, the spot fix gel and the lip gloss are miniatures but the Eyeshadow and blush palette and shower gel are full size versions :)
      I hope that helps~ Have a great day


Leave a comment and i will get back to you as soon as i can :)
