This month the glossy box was a shiny red, with the white paper squiggles inside. I loved this, and it made the whole thing seem a lot more festive then if it had been in the original packaging.
It's very pretty! I was pleased that when I opened it, it looked pretty full. I love opening packages anyway, so a full one makes it even better! Naturally, I went for the biggest product I could see first, which was the rituals Yogi Flow foaming shower gel.
This is full size (200ml at £6.50.) It smells lovely, a not too overpowering sweet floral, and also foams really well. I like that it isn't too expensive either, because if I do love it I can go and buy it without feeling too guilty. I do like luxurious samples, but I'm not a huge spender on more bath and body products compared to skin care or nail polish, so this was a bonus for me.
I would say do be careful when using the nozzle. I tried to squirt some onto my hand, and it shot all over my carpet! A little goes a long way too as it is very creamy and rich (similar to a gel shaving cream!), so this should last quite a long time. From what I could see from my subscription to other bloggers, everyone got this gel. Next, I opened the nouveau lashes noir mascara. No other blogger that I'm subscribed to received this, the majority it seems, got the blink & go palette, or mascara. I admit I did look at others posts before I received my glossybox, and I was hoping to get the palette. However, after recieving this mascara i've got to say I would rather have this as I suspect the palette would've got thrown to the back of my draw never to be seen again!
It came in this cute box, and it is very nicely packaged. The sleek black tube is quite heavy, although not overly so, just enough to give it that 'expensive' feel. It's full sized (8g) and retails for £14.99.
Badly swatched, it's basically a pale pink with lots of pretty sparkle!
Lastly, there is the Deborah Lipmann stripper to go lavender nail lacquer remover finger mitts. I have never tried these, but they are allegedly supposed to help remove glitter polishes easily, and these particular ones are supposed to be used with the notorious Lipmann polishes (hard to remove!) You get 1 mitt, and for the full size (6 mitts) it is £14. I wouldn't pay this much for nail remover personally, but they're a nice luxurious treat to go with the polish.
Overall, I am really impressed with this months glossybox and am glad I continued with my subscription after the fairly average November box (hence no blog about it!) I hope you enjoyed reading this, and please comment any ideas for new posts! Thanks for reading
