December GlossyBox Rose Gold Edition!




Sorry that I haven't been really active the past week but I have been really busy at work and been suffering a lot with my tooth, I honestly didn't think a wisdom tooth would hurt this much but hopefully I will have it sorted tomorrow. Anyway lets move on to the more important thing here my December Glossy Box.

This month's box was a collaboration with Really Ree who brought out the Rose Gold Edit of GlossyBox. The design of the box this month is just gorgeous it's rose gold with white detailing which gives off the effect of snow. The front and back of the box has two phrases which are ' Let's Celebrate' and ' Let It Snow' which are also rose gold to go with the box. It is definitely one of my favourites by far, more for the fact I do love rose gold hahaha!

Onto the contents of this months box;

Etre Belle Golden Skin Caviar Eye Roll On £30.66 - I have never heard of the Etre Belle brand, but you can tell straight away that it is a pretty high end brand from the packaging but also in the price. This eye roll on is to help keep your delicate skin hydrated which will help when it comes to people who look a little tired. I have yet to use this product but I personally never see any difference in any eye products I use maybe I might be using them wrong. This was a travel size product.


So Susan Statement Skin Highlighter Pencil in Starlight £15 - In a box previously I have received a So Susan product before which I have yet to try - I am a big fan of highlighters and from swatching this is it has a champagne tone to it which gives off the perfect highlight. It has a tip which is perfect for precision when it comes to highlighting. This is a full size product.



Collection Long Lasting Nail Effects £2.99 - the picture doesn't do the colour of this nail varnish any justice it is a deep purple colour with blue glitter mixed in with it. This shade is the perfect Christmas shade to me even though I am not really a nail polish fan because I just can't do my nails without them looking a mess. But this is definitely something I would wear over Christmas or at a Christmas party. This was a full size product.

Hylamide Pore Delete £18 - when I first saw this it looked like something you would get from a pharmacy which it obviously wasn't. I then automatically assumed it would be like a primer when I found out that it deletes pores - however after I read up about the product you can use it if you want a make up free day to help delete pores, but you can also use it with make up but you would apply it after you have applied your foundation but before you apply your powder, to me this is pretty weird as I would have expected it to go on before your foundation. This product is to help minimise pores, mattify and blur your appearance which I'm guessing is going to give you that photo finish that everyone wants. 

Essence Liquid Lipstick in Show Off £2.50 - another product which is ideal for Christmas with it being a bright red/pink shade - making it the perfect shade for the festive period. It has the coverage of a lipstick with the shine of a lip gloss which is amazing so you don't have to carry so many products around with you. The applicator is a doe-foot which makes it easy to have full control when it comes to lining your lips. I have never tried any Essence products before so I am quite excited to try this. This was a full size product.

Starskin Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Mask £8.50 - this was the 6th gift which came in the GlossyBox, there is 4 different types of masks which all do different things - the one I received was the calming mask which is soaked in vitamin packed serum which is going to help your skin during the festive period because everyone wears a lot more make up over this time of year from all the parties. I love coconut and I love a face mask so this is perfect for me as it has a coconut scent to the mask. I am excited to try out this face mask as I think I am really going to like it. This was a full size product.

Usually you only get 5 products but this month you got 6 just as a little gift from them with it being Christmas. I am excited to try all of these products out and there is none that I dislike or don't think I will like. This box is definitely suited to the festive period helping with both getting glam to looking after your skin.

Until Next Time,
