Glossybox January 2017


Yesterday I received my January Glossybox. Glossybox is usually one of my favourite beauty boxes out of all the boxes that I subscribe to but this months box doesn’t wow me. It’s ok but if I’m honest I don’t feel very enthusiastic about it. 

Inside my Glossybox this month is a Manuka Honey Face Mask, Unani Milk Cleasnser, Nip & Fab Moisturiser, The Balm Eyeshadow Single and a set of 3 bobbles that I’ve had before. To be honest that is the thing that is annoying me, we fill in beauty profiles for these subscriptions and yet we seem to end up with repeat items or the same kind of item 3 months in a row – there’s only so many dry shampoos I can use! So I now find myself looking for a new beauty box to try. I currently subscribe to Glossybox and Birchbox, I’ve just signed up to Look Incredible – I have actually had a box from them before and I did quite like it, I have recently cancelled Love Me Beauty – small sample sizes and poor choice being the reason for that and I used to get the  You Beauty Box as well but I cancelled that. So, what’s left for me to try ? Hmmm, I’m not sure but I’m going to have a look and see what’s new and if I subscribe to anything new I will let you know how I get on. If you have any recommendations for me then comment below and let me know. In the meantime my search for the perfect beauty box continues.

December 2016 Glossybox 

I’m a big fan of beauty boxes & I subscribe to a few different ones. Glossybox has to be one of my favourites and this month I was quite happy with my box. My favourite thing in the box is the MDM flow Lipstick in the shade Sugar. It wasn’t a surprise to see this in my box as earlier in the month Glossybox had sent out an email asking us to choose between 2 different shades and this is what I chose. It’s a really pretty nude shade, so it’s right up my street. I’m a bit of a nude addict! 

Next up in my box is a Revlon nail varnish, again in a pretty nude shade. This will look so pretty paired with the lipstick & a little black dress this party season! 

I wasn’t as happy with the next item I found in my box – an Essence Face Luminizer Palette. Now I’m not a makeup snob, I enjoy plenty of high street brands – sleek, makeup revolution, rimmel to name a few – but I just feel like this is a really rubbish budget brand and I don’t expect to see it in a beauty box that is branded as giving us a monthly treat. I will probably give this palette away to a friend. 

Browcote Waterproof brow sealer was the next thing I pulled out. I don’t particularly have unruly brows, in fact I don’t really have any brows if I don’t fill them in so I’m not sure how useful I’m going to find this. Plus I’m not a huge fan of Waterproof products as I just find them a pain to remove. I will give it a try and see how i get on.

The last thing in my box is a GOSH single eyeshadow in a super pretty Emerald green shade. Very excited about trying this out as it will be my first ever GOSH product and I’ve heard good things about the brand. Also the colour looks so stunning and I’m hoping it’s really pigmented so I can create a really pretty look.

Overall I am quite happy with this months box. What did you get in your Glossybox this month ?
