I cannot believe that December’s Glossybox has arrived already! The year has gone by so quickly…The box that arrived is absolutely stunning. The design is All That Glitters and the box is super pretty this month. Christmas is the perfect month to add glamour and glitz into your life and that’s exactly what theme Glossybox has chosen for the products this month. There are 5 full size products plus an extra treat included! Anyone who gets this box this month from Glossybox is definitely all prepared for a sparkly, fabulous Christmas season.
INSIDE THE BOX: 3 SKINCARE AND 3 BEAUTY
BELLAPIERRE COSMETICS Shimmer Roll –Wow this was a perfect item for Glossybox to include in this glitter box. This shimmer roll is in a gorgeous champagne shade. It’s an iridescent highlighter that you can swipe across your skin effortlessly and immediately get shimmering and beautifully illuminated skin. I have never seen a highlighter as a roll on and this makes application go on perfectly to the spot where you want it applied. I absolutely love this product and you can also blend the product so easily. It retails at £19.99.
DOUCCE Relentless Matte Lip Crayon – This is a perfect winter lip statement. The shade is like winterberries and mulled wine. It’s a very pigmented rich red lip crayon. It claims to be long lasting and glides on very smoothly. It’s finish is a beautiful on trend matte look. It retails for £16.95. Unfortunately I don’t wear red lip crayons so I will be giving away (as my preference for lip shades are nudes and pinks.) However, this is perfect for the box as it screams out Christmas!
NIKO PRO Liquid Jelly Blush – I have never come across a jelly textured blush before. The shade is a gorgeous pink that includes sparkles too. It retails for £12 and has a unique jelly formula that is pigmented, lightweight and also hydrating. It will be interesting to see how this product applies over foundation so I can’t wait to try it out and see if I like it once applied. But the idea of a jelly formula blush intrigues me.
IMPERIAL LEATHER Fantasy Icons Cosmic Unicorn Shower Gel – Oh wow, I love when Glossybox included Limited Edition products in their boxes. Although this is a cheaper item that only retails for £1.99 it was such a lovely product to see inside the box. I love unicorns, sparkle and stars so this is a shower gel perfect for me! It’s called Moon and Sparkles Unicorn Dust. It smells amazing!!! It is scented with pink grapefruit and floral aromas. I can’t get over how delicious it smells! On the back it reads “Who doesn’t want to shower like a unicorn?” and they make a very good point!
BEAUTY BLVD Divine Hydra-Gel Lip Mask – I have never tried out a lip mask before so I am very glad that I can try one out now. In the winter lips need that extra bit of TLC as the cold weather can cause cracking and dryness. So this will be perfect to plump, smooth and rejuvenate lips. It is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid (moisture boosting) and Green tea extracts. The lip mask also includes antioxidant rich red wine extracts and Collagen both will help to plump and smooth the lips. This retails for £7.50 and I will be pampering my lips with this mask before I apply my festive lipstick this year. The pack contains 2 masks so I’m glad I have more than one.
MAYBEAUTY The Incredible Pore Strip – Again I haven’t tried out a pore strip but I love testing out new skincare and this looks very interesting. This was Glossybox’s extra treat that they included. They included this to help us all prep our pores for the “selfie season.” haha love it…very thoughtful! It’s a pore-strip to remove blackheads and impurities in the skin. There are 2 strips included and the ingredients also contain Charcoal (which has been a big on trend ingredient in the skincare business recently.) I am looking forward to trying this out. These strips retail for £3.50.
Overall, I love love love this festive box! The design used for the packaging was beautiful and the products inside will add abit of glitz and preparation for the festive month up ahead. I love the lip masks and pore strips included instead of having a ‘usual’ facemask. It makes it abit different having those types of masks which I am excited to try out. The shimmer roll on has to be my favourite product of them all though. It is absolutely stunning! What a brilliant box of treats from Glossybox to end their 2018 year with.
