A little late (but better late than never)it's Glossybox time!
The theme of this month's box is 'The Christmas Gift Guide: Part 1', 5 products to try before you buy (whether for yourself or others). This theme is split between the November and December boxes and is designed to help us decide what to give and put on our wish lists this festive season. Here's what I got in mine:
- Nail Rock Designer Nail Wraps in Leopard Print
- Dead Sea Spa Magik Dead Sea Bath Salts
- Arbonne FC5 Cooling Foot Créme
- Monu Skin Perfector
- Serge Lutens L'Eau Serge Lutens and Vitriol d'Oeillet
I really like using nail wraps and leopard is a design I've not tried yet so I'm looking forward to giving these a go. They always have such an impact when they're on and are definitely eye-catching in this print. These are a full sized product and can be bought for £6.65 here.
I've never used bath salts before, but from reading the packaging they seem to have a bunch of skin and muscle benefits, from alleviating dry skin conditions and aching joints to toning skin. Who doesn't like a nice relaxing bath anyway? I think I might have to bust out some Lush products too! This is a 250g sample, the full sized 1kg salts are priced at £5.50 and can be bought here.
This smells so minty! Its much thinner in consistency in comparison to Soap & Glory Heel Genius, but it has more of a cooling effect. It'll be great to use the morning after the night before when feet are recovering from those 6inches! This is a 15ml sample and the full sized 118ml product retails for £19.00 here.
This is the product I am most interested in trying out. I all for primers at the moment and at £16.25 here (this is full sized at 50ml), I'm expecting great things from it. It claims to give a soft focus effect, smooth lines, hydrate, aid repair and combat premature ageing. A lot to live up to there! I'll definitely be posting a full review on this when I've used it more. From first impressions, it smells lovely and has the same sort of consistency (but thinner) to the Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer.
I always feel let down by the fragrance samples in these boxes, they're just never to my taste. These are both unisex fragrances which in my opinion always seem to be too masculine for girls and too feminine for guys. I'm super jel of all the ladies that got to sample the new Illamasqua Freak perfume though! I'm going to have to track that down somewhere, it sounds like its lovely. The full sized versions (which are beautifully packaged) retail for £86.00 and £78.00 from House of Fraser for 100ml.
I think this box is a pretty well balanced, and I'll definitely enjoy using everything (aside from the perfumes).I'm really looking forward to the "special surprise Christmas Glossybox" lined up for December and excited to see what the lovely Glossy team have thought of.
