My beauty box subscription Glossybox arrived on Monday. I was excited about this box as Christmas is coming up in a couple of weeks, so I was really looking forward to the surprises and thought that the box would be a good one. However, I felt disappointed with my box's contents this month and received at least one product that I will never use and have no interest in. The last couple of boxes from Glossybox have been really good for me, but the first the first two were not, so I hope we're not going back to receiving products that aren't right for me. Anyway, on to my reviews.
First of all, I loved the Glossbybox Christmas packaging box design this month. The box also smelled really nice when I opened it.
Bellapierre lip and cheek stain in coral: This is a full-sized product and it can be used as a blusher and as a lip balm. The shade is a coral pink colour. I tried it on my lips and cheeks, and it's a subtle colour. This is my favourite product in the box.
TRESemme 60 second hair treatment shots: This is a full-sized product, and four "shots" come in the pack. These claim to nourish hair. My hair is in a decent state at the moment, so I'm curious to see how these work with me when my hair is in need.
Anatomicals Day and Night Spot Stick: This full-sized product claims to zap the spots away. I had a couple of spots on their way out, so I had a quick test of the product last night and again this morning. One side is a night cream, and the other is a day cream. The night cream product stings (dries) the spot when used. This product does not seem to dry my skin out or act too aggressively like similar products from other brands, so I will have a proper test of it next time an acne problem arises.
SoSusan Dual Brown Powder: This full-sized product is my least favourite in the box and one that I will never use. I don't draw on my brows and it does not suit my needs. The biggest problem with it is that both shades of powder are brown. My brows are black, and the darker brown is still too light for me to use. I may be able to use them as an eye shadow. Overall, this is disappointing.
SkinPep Wrinkle Clear Peptide Serum: I am not so keen on this type of product either. I do not have any "fine lines or wrinkles" yet. If I did, this is the type of product that would need to be used and monitored over time. Actually, this product threw me off because I expected a cream, and it's actually a liquid, so too much came out. This is a product that I will be putting away for the future because I do not need to use it now.
With four full-zised products, it is a pity that almost half of the products were of no interest to me. What did you get in your December UK 2014 Glossybox, and were you happy?
