January Glossybox

I’ve been suscribing to Glossybox for around a year now, on and off. I stopped suscribing because I simply wasn’t happy with paying £13 a month as I wasn’t fully satisfied with the ‘luxury’ samples I’m receiving. I only re-suscribed because I’m just too scared of missing out! I believe when Glossybox first launched, everyone that suscribed received a full sized Nars product in their first box. I’m afraid that is where the luxury ends, for me. Most of the boxes I have received have just been sub-standard, nothing spectacular and I don’t often come across a product I would like to repurchase in the full sized version.

This month, the first thing I noticed was the box itself had had a bit of a make-over. Nothing too drastic but the texture of the box had become, well, it has become more glossy in fact. Much more shiny, rather than the smooth, matte effect it used to sport.

Inside were the usual 5 luxury samples we have come to expect, along with the mandatory Glossybox magazine and the little product description card. The theme this month is ‘Back to Basics’ with a focus on skin care and taking care of your skin in the cold weather, or at least that is what I felt was the key message being put across.

The products I received as well as the descriptions provided by Glossybox are as follows:

1) Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream- This multi-use cult moisturising cream from Japan revamps your skin, enriching it with Vitamin E, Vitamin B2, camphor and a uniquely high glycerine content. It’s an essential for all skin care regimes.

2) Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash- With a blend of juniper, bergamot, geranium and lavender essential oils, Balance Me’s super toning body wash is the best way to start your day!

3) The Vintage Cosmetic Company Floral Slanted Tweezers- Get rid of boring brows with these pretty floral tweezers by the Vintage Cosmetic Company. These high quality, stainless steel must-haves are the perfect accompaniment for every vintage doll’s make up bag.

4) Anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Wake-up Under Eye Patches- Looking like the walking dead? These under eye patches by Anatomicals will reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and revitalise the delicate skin around your eyes.

5) Vaseline Essential Moisture Lotion- Is your skin weathering the elements? If so, then you need the Essential Moisture Lotion from Vaseline. It’s non-greasy formulation and multi-layer complex absorbs quickly leaving your skin silky smooth and looking healthy.

My thoughts:

I would have preferred more make-up products in the box but I’m all about taking good care of your skin and as usual, I will make good use of the products such as the vaseline moisturiser and I was actually needing a new pair of tweezers to keep in my make-up bag so these will definitely come in handy too. I’m also pretty intrigued by the japanese moisturiser so I’ll definitely be using that and seeing what I think!

If any of you suscribe to Glossybox, let me know what you think of January’s box and what you’re looking forward to trying out :)

Thanks for reading!

    I was going to pick up the Yu Be moisturiser but opted for Origins (because I’ve used it before). I read good things about it but I’d love to know what you make of it! I like the glossy box concept but I think I’d end up with a bunch of products with no use or appeal and nowhere to put them. The box is pretty though right!?
