Glossybox December 2014 edition

Glossybox's December box arrived a few days ago and as per usual, I ripped into it straight away. They've given the outer box a very festive theme this month which I think is really cute, but what about the contents?

Inside the box there are five samples, four of which were full-sized. Disappointingly, there wasn't really much of a festive theme going on which I think was a shame, but none the less, the box contents are pretty good value for the price.

The item I'm most pleased about is the BellaPierre lip and cheek stain, which is a handbag-friendly creamy product that I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of. The colour is nice - maybe not quite the one I'd have chosen for myself, but definitely still useable. Full-size £12.95

There's also another lip product in my box in the form of Lip Glam. This seems to be a very similar product to my trusty Lanolips ointment (they are both 100% lanolin), so I know it's something I'll use. It's also full-sized and normally retails at £9.99. I've not heard of the brand before, so it's nice to discover an alternative.

The TRESemme hair mask shots look interesting - they aren't something I'd have necessarily bought myself, but I will definitely give them a try. After all, a good hair mask is invaluable, especially when you only have to leave it on for 60 seconds! Full-sized - £5.50 for a pack of 4.

I also received an Anatomicals Spot stick and a trial sized version of Skin Prep Wrinkle Clear Peptide Serum. While these two products aren't really things I would use (I don't often get spots and the serum sounds like it will be better for more mature skin), they are definitely something I can pass on to a friend who I know will really enjoy them.

I can't quite put my finger on why, but despite having mostly full-sized products and at least 3 products I will use, I still feel a bit underwhelmed by this box. I'd have liked to have seen a bit more of a festive theme - maybe some glitter nail polish or a cheeky chocolate added in for good measure.

Glossybox costs £10 per month plus £2.95 postage.

  1. I love using those Tresemme hair shots :) I think the contents of this are good, but I agree that the lack of festive bits is a tad disappointing, especially when the packaging is so pretty!

  2. I'd be interested to see if the Tresemme stuff is good, I was eyeing those up in town the other day but couldn't decide whether they looked worth it or not! I love your festive background haha, is it a throw?

  4. I have to admit I am not bothered about missing this box at all. I have the Lip Glam product anyway which is alright, but as you say it is underwhelming and not what I would call festive x

  5. Cute beauty kit, Miss. I've heard good things about Tresemme, personally.
