So my December Glossybox came on Monday and it is the last one from my three month subscription. This box was the Rose Gold edit which is a collaboration with Really Ree, so it came with a rose gold design with snowballs and on the side of the box it says ‘Let is snow!’ which I think is so cute! I absolutely love the packaging of this box and I’m just going to keep it as storage because I love it that much. Also, we got an extra product this month as a little gift from Glossybox for Christmas.
So I’m just going to get straight into it. The first product is the Hylamide Pore Delete. I have only used this properly once and if I’m honest it isn’t my favourite product in the box this month. The first thing was that I found it really difficult to get into! I always show my mum all of the products I get in each box and we both struggled to get this open for ages! However, I do think that this product works, it says that it will minimise pores and mattify. I think this really does minise my pores, however it suggests that you either use this with no make up or put this over your foundation before applying your powder. I personally don’t think I would use this over my make up but I would definitely use this on my no make up days.
The next product is the Collection Long Lasting Nail Effects in the colour 33 Cosmic Stars which is a sparkly purple. I am obsessed with doing my nails and I love having them done nice around this time of year, especially when they include a sparkle. I would say this is too light to just wear on it’s own but it looks lovely with a colour underneath. I am using this nail polish at the minute with a purple shade underneath and it looks lovely, especially at this time of year, this colour just adds a bit of extra sparkle.
The third item in the box this month is the Etre Belle Golden Skin Caviar Eye roll on. This is basically to refresh your eyes, it is a cooling gel so once you have put it on, your skin does really feel quite refreshed. I think this would be perfect around this time of year especially if you have lots of Christmas parties and are often out late, I would just use this in the morning to make my skin feel refreshed and probably make me feel more awake too!
The Essence Liquid Lipstick in Show Off is the next product that was in the box which is like a bright corally pink colour which is lovely. I love bright lip colours for going out so this colour is a perfect colour for me. My mum also tried this on and it lasted all night which I didn’t really expect from a £2.50 liquid lipstick so I’m really impressed with this!
Next is the So Susan Statement Skin Highlighter Pencil which has a pointy kind of shape which can make it easier for you to highlight your cheekbones, centre of the nose and your cupid’s bow. This is easy to apply and has a lovely subtle shimmer so it’s not too much and this looks lovely when you catch it in certain lights.
The final product in the box this month, which is the extra product for December and this is the Starskin Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Mask and I got the calming mask but I think there were four different ones you could get. I haven’t tried this yet and I haven’t tried this brand before either but I’m sure I will love it as I am obsessed with face masks and things like that. It says that the masks are soothing, purifying and pore refining. I can’t wait to try this and I’m sure I will put a post on my Instagram when I am using this so make sure you’re following me over there to see what they are like (the link is at the top of my blog).
