Glossybox January

Hi Guys,

The first Glossybox of 2015 has hit my door step and its a good one! Including five full size products, which is pretty amazing seeing as at the most sometimes you would get three. There's always a bit of a new year new start theme with Glossybox every January. This time its no different with the theme of Fresh Start Must Haves.
As well as the full size products there was also a little extra, which I forgot to photograph, sorry! But it was a £25 Gift Voucher for the Hello Fresh site. Hello Fresh is basically a service that delivers fresh produce and little recipe cards too, so that you can whip up fresh yummy meals.
My box was heavy when it arrived which to me is always a good sign as it usually means its not filled with lots of little samples. I had seen that there was going to be two full size products in this months box, as you get a little sneak peek card in the past box. However the other three full size products were a complete and lovely surprise.
Kueshi Natural & Pleasant Cosmetics Revitalising Facial Toner - €10.70 for 200ml
I haven't tried this just yet as I am currently using the Pixi Toner, It contains Camomile and Aloe Vera, which help to calm the skin, it also claims to rehydrate the skin too. Im looking forward to seeing the results I get from using this.

Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow - £10 for 15g
Im starting to gather quite the Jelly Pong Pong Collection, they have a wonderful selection of products and they've been around for quite a while. It still however isn't a very well known brand, which is a shame. The actual product itself has quite the golden pink toned sheen to it. Mixed with foundation it would give a really radiant glow, I think over the tops of the cheek bone too would look pretty in the warmer months.

Nicka K New York Colourluxe Powder Blush - €8.95 for 5g
Im not really a huge fan of the powder puff blushers that have been popping up recently. I would just rather use a brush, this one does unscrew so you can just use the blusher however, which I really prefer. It is also a very pigmented blush, Its a little bit on the chalky side too, but once blended out the rosy shade gives a lovely flush to the cheeks.

Me Me Me Eye Line Pencil in Clay - £4
Me Me Me isn't a brand I ever really went to look at in Superdrug and now I wish I had, this Pencil is a lot better than I ever expected! Its matte a dark brown matte shade, which Ive been looking for an affordable version of for a while! Its soft and doesn't pull on the skin, it's also very long wearing.

Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm Superfruits - €5
My lips are really dry now that it's colder and I think thats probably the case for a lot of Glossybox subscribers, so I think its a great idea to include one in this months box. This one is packed full of berries and other fruits, as well as oils to leave the lips feeling hydrated.

The only downside I have found is that most of the products aren't actually in the UK, but actually European, I love the fact I can try things that I wouldn't usually be able to try. It's just a little annoying when you fall in love with a product...

  6. I use to get Glossy Box a few years ago when it first came out. I haven't seen blog posts on them in a while so don't get many chances to see whats in the boxes anymore. This month looks great, brilliant having full size products xx

  7. It is annoying trying to track down a product from somewhere else. I like the pixi toner too but kueshi one looks good too. The box looks nice as well! :) xx
