December Glossybox

This month's limited edition box has to be, by far, one of the best glossyboxes i've ever received. This is the first time i've been overjoyed with every product, knowing i'll get use out of it all! 
Obviously this month was the Christmas gift guide part two, and it contained items that help you become "Belle of the ball" this party season.
To get into the festive spirit, Glossybox's signature dusty pink box transformed into a Christmassy red one this month - What a cute idea! I thought it was such a lovely touch to keep up with the seasons. I was also really really happy to see the amount of full sized products we got this month.. and all of them are amazing.
The first thing i pulled out of my box was Rituals foaming shower gel in Yogi Flow. Now, i haven't properly used this yet, but i can tell you it smells really sweet and yummy! Sort of cakey and flowery at the same time. It says, "This unique foaming shower gel gently cleanses your skin and leaves it silky soft and smooth." So i can't wait to try this out later!
I've never tried any of MeMeMe cosmetics before but this face base reminds me a lot of Bobbi Browns face primer. It smells gorgeous, like lemonade or that icy fanta. It also works really well leaving my skin feel really hydrated and it leaves a sort of natural dewy finish which is what i like to achieve! It says, "A luxurious moisturising facebase enriched with active nutrients and extracts to prime and nourish the skin."
I was so glad to get this in my box after seeing some spoilers - I actually really needed some new mascara so this was perfect timing. I've never even heard of blink+go before, and i've gotta say i'm not a massive fan of their packaging, but the mascara itself was a nice surprise. It gives me longer lashes with only one coat! The brush is quite thin but it doesn't give that effect. It's also waterproof which is always an added bonus now the weather's taken a turn for the worst!
I also received this gorgeous little sample of lipgloss from Cargo Cosmetics in "Tokyo." It's a baby pink colour, reminds me of the babydoll leighton denny nail varnish actually! (colour-wise!). The application is lovely too, I don't find it sticky at all. The description reads, "Cargo's new lip gloss formulation! Perfect shades, great wear and high-shine without being sticky."
This pretty festive nail varnish caught my eye, almost the moment I opened my box. It's such a pretty colour that i've been wearing non-stop since I got my fingers on it! (I think it's in shade, "razzle dazzle.") It does need a couple of layers though to get the full effect. The pot came with a small sachet of polish remover mitts which i'm popping in my handbag for a nail related emergency. My mum did use hers though and said that they were really easy to use. 

What did you think of the limited edition GB this month? Let me know xxx


  1. I use a base wine colour first before the 'razzle dazzle' you don't need as many layers. Loved my GB too.
