November GlossyBox!

Hi Guys,

Ive got the November Glossybox here to show you today, Ive also realised that the box marks 3 years of me subscribed to Glossy Box! It scares me slightly that I must of accumulated 36 Glossy Boxes around my house...
As well as Glossybox containing its usual five products, this month also came with an invite/ Gift card to become a part of Best Secret. I don't really know much about the concept and after looking into it I'm still a little confused. It's basically a high end exclusive invite web shop, that has the high end items on a heavy discount.
Glossybox had released two of the items in this months box, both full-size. Over all I got three full size products this month. Id heard that a few people were disappointed with the sizes of products contained this month. Luckily I'm quite pleased with my samples too! 
H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment - £27.50 for 50ml
I am in love with this stuff! Its a tranluscent yet blue tinted lightweight gel, Its so cooling on the skin when its first applied. Its suppose to hydrate and plump up fine lines, at 18 I don't really have any fine lines, However Im looking forward to the results it could give in Hydration purposes.

Burts Bee's Lip Shine in Whisper - £6.99
Is it bad Ive never tried anything from Burts Bee's before? I always meant to pick up one of their tinted lip balms and never did, so its great to finally try something from them. The gloss itself is really quite runny, it leaves what is almost like a film on the lips, not in a horrible way however and its not sticky at all. It almost tastes and smells like starbursts too!

Monu Soothing Hawaii Facial Oil - £26 for 100ml
Im quite the fan of Monu, I was quite excited to see this in the box. It's a treatment oil for Normal Combination skin types, I have more of a dry skin, however Im looking forward to giving this a good go. It contains grape seed, sandalwood and lavender oils. Ive tried some treatment oils before and haven't gotten on well with the scent, this one smells lovely however and I can really smell the lavender. It also is suited to sensitive skin too.

Lollipop's Makeup Eye Pencil in Goodbye Moon - €14 / £11.18
I had never heard of Lollipop's before, but its a french brand, it reminds me of So Susan or Jelly Pong Pong over here. This is a really pigmented, creamy, matte black eyeliner. It doesn't drag on the eye which is lovely, however it does smudge a little bit due to how creamy it is. I wouldn't say it would last very long on the waterline, I'm yet to try it. Its a bit of a downside, but it doesn't smudge too much unless you move it around too much.

2True Pro Sparkles Nail Glitter in Danni - £4 
This is maybe the most disappointing product for me, but I still really quite like it. The only reason I find it disappointing is the price, Im not sure I'd pay £4 for this tiny pot of glitter when you can get big packs of glitter for the same price. Its a traditional gold fine glitter though and is definitely nice to add a bit of extra sparkle to your mani!

  1. I've never tried a glossy box or any of the other monthly boxes but I'm getting more and more tempted. I'm quite embarrassed to also say that I've never tried anything from burtsbees! Not sure why, I am always supposed to but always end up forgetting. Lovely post as always x

  2. I was one of those that was disappointed with the box. I won't use the burts bees gloss. I thought that discount card was good but you have to spend £60 before getting the discount, so I wasted my time picking out what I wanted only to be disappointed as I didn't want to pay up :(

  3. Hi Eloise, this was my last Glossybox as I decided to unsubscribe as I have too many beauty products, I might go back next year. The only things I like from the box was the Monu facial oil as it smelt amazing!

  4. Haven't followed GlossyBox for a while now, I am not a fan of Beauty Boxes any more, just like to spend my money on one product which I will love, although it's a great way to find out about new products. x
