Hi lovelies! I received my December GlossyBox a long while ago and I was really pleased with it! This post is super late, but I have been struggling with being sick and not able to blog about my adventures in Vanityland I try to give myself enough time to use the products in my subscription boxes and get an impression of the things I received before posting about it.
The December GlossyBox is truly magical. It came in a pretty silver box, which is different from the usual pink box and felt very special. The box was also really heavy too! It was completely filled with products and I am really happy with what I received.
I am really enjoying the GlossyBox magazines that come with the box. It has a lot of really nice photography of people's make up and some product suggestions. I like reading about make up trends and this Glossy Mag boasted hot orange coral lips on the runways.
I received some very cute studs. I didn't know that GlossyBox even includes jewelry. It was a very nice surprise. I am really lazy to constantly change my earrings and I usually wear gold, but it is nice to have some fashion jewelry to change it up when I am in the mood.
This Avon Glazewear Extreme Lip Gloss is really sheer, so there was no point in swatching it. It is non-sticky and has a really weird fruity scent that I am not fond of. This is my least favourite product of the bunch.
I love false lashes. I was really happy to receive a pair in the December GlossyBox. They are definitely glamorous with a blunt cut and lots of volume. I haven't had an occasion to try these out yet.
I have never tried a Revlon nail polish before. I was pleased to see a creamy white shade. I have MAC Vestral White that looks the same, but the formula is horrible. I hope this one is better.
I received a full-sized bottle of Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30. This looks really shimmery on the skin and gives me a natural, healthy tan. My bf seemed to like how it looked on me more than I did. Although it is for fair to light, it was a bit too dark, which is why I said that it gives me a natural looking tan. It isn't orange, but it is very yellow-golden. I would probably enjoy this product more if it was paler. I am also not too fond of the formula, because it does feel heavy and greasy, despite being oil-free. People with dry skin might like it though.
I also received a full-sized Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30, which is a really good alternative to the tinted moisturizer. I love the Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer much more. This is nice to have in my stash. I like that I don't have to layer sunscreen over my moisturizer when I am not wearing bb cream.
I got some more shampoo and conditioner samples. These look so familiar. I wonder if I have some more of these somewhere in the house?
I was pleased to receive a travel sized bottle of TRESemme Dry Shampoo. I haven't tried this yet, but it is nice to have. I would probably use this especially on my bangs and roots after the gym. I haven't been doing too well, so I have yet to incorporate regular gym days into my schedule.
I am really pleased with my GlossyBox subscriptions. Although they increased the price, you get a lot of products to try. You also get very good sizes that will last a long time. I ended up cancelling my TopBox subscription, because I was constantly disappointed with it. I hope to get an eye cream in my next GlossyBox!
Do you have any monthly subscriptions?
