December GlossyBox

So, its been ages since I last blogged, but here I am again !
I recently subscribed to GlossyBox, I'd been debating if I should for a while and after reading positive reviews of the December box, I thought the time was right !
Here is the box I received
The packaging was lovely, a sturdy, red Christmas edition box, printed inside, with the contents hidden under tissue paper tied with black ribbon.
The contents of my box were

Blink + Go Hi-Definition mascara  full size

Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lip Gloss in Tokyo 0.45g

Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle Mini Nail Varnish with Stripped to Go Sachet

MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Facebase 10ml

Rituals Foaming Shower Gel in Fujiyama  full size

I have to say, I'm impressed with the contents of this box, it is excellent value, with the two full size products alone having a value of over £20.00.

I love the MeMeMe facebase, it is a lovely light texture, that glides on easily and leaves my skin feeling soft all day, and as it is designed to do, it creates the perfect base for applying make up, the only (tiny) concern I have is that it has quite a strong citrus fragrance, now this doesn't worry me at all, but if you're not keen on fragranced face products, its something to be aware of.

The Rituals foaming shower gel is also lovely, you only need a tiny amount to create a rich, moisturising lather and the fragrance is beautiful.

I have yet to try the Deborah Lippmann polish but it is very pretty and I'm sure this will be my Christmas polish as it is so sparkly and festive !
This picture doesn't do it justice

The Cargo lip gloss is also very pretty, a slightly peachy pink that feels moisturising on the lips,

Lastly, the Blink + Go Hi- Definition mascara, I  have used this a few times now and it does lengthen my lashes and is definitely flake free, and although I don't think it will be replacing my favourite Rimmel mascara, it seems a good product that does what it says and will be a good alternative for times when I need a waterproof mascara.

I should also mention that the card received with the box, has discount codes for three of the products and I will definitely be making use of a couple of those !

So overall, I'm really pleased with this box and I'm very glad I signed up to GlossyBox in time to receive it, I can only hope future boxes are as impressive !
