January Glossybox 2013 (and December Review!)


The January 2013 Glossybox was the "Detox Box" which is supposed to get us back on track with our New Year's Resolutions...at least where beauty and healthy skin are concerned!  The first thing that popped out was this silky pink & black eye mask - very glam and perfect for travelling or getting topped up on our beauty sleep!


Next up we have Sanctuary Spa Active Reverse Facial 30 Day Thermal Transformation Mask which is a 2 step system claiming to dramatically improve the appearance of your skin without cosmetic injections.  I'm definitely interested to try this out!!  I will update you guys on how it works for me!  I also got the Monu Micro Exfoliant which is a dual-action microdermabrasion promising to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores all while delivering radiant skin.  I have liked all Monu products selected by Glossybox before so I'm really excited to try this as well!  Next product I pulled out was the Eco-Boutique Body Lotion with Aloe Leaf and Green Tea.  Never heard of this brand before and I can't say the packaging is anything special either so I have no idea what this will be like.  I was very impressed with the sample of Murad's Hydro DynamicTM Ultimate Moisture for Eyes as I'm always on the lookout for a new eye cream!  The one I'm currently using was a Glossybox sample as well and I'm almost out of that so when that's used up I will move onto this!  Lastly I also got the BM Beauty Dewy Perfection Finishing Powder which I most likely won't be using as I have oily/combination skin so I generally steer clear of described with the word "dewy"!  

All in all I wasn't hugely impressed with this month's Glossybox, probably because it consisted of mostly skincare products rather than make-up which I find a little bit boring!  I am happiest about the eye cream, microdermabrasion and the 2 step skin mask so I'm eager to try them out!  Onto my review of December's Glossybox...I am ashamed to say I didn't do much product testing last month as I had a LOT of Glossyboxes to catch up on!  (I missed quite a few months right around the time Emilia was born and finally opened them all in one go last month) so apologies for this rather shoddy review!  Here are the products that remained untouched...


Glossybox Blusher by Kryolan in Glossy Rosewood


Lemon by Mary Greenwell Eau de Parfum
I ended up giving this to my mom as she loves lemony scents.  I have to say I didn't think this was a very "Christmassy" perfume!


Seche Vite Nail Lacquer in Elegance
Absolutely nothing wrong with this polish, it's just that I didn't start to paint my nails again after having Emilia till this month!  So I know I will use this in the future.


Sleek True Colour Lipstick Coral Reef
This lipstick looks very pigmented and seems promising when swatched however I found the colour much too summery for December!  I will most likely wear this in the summer! 

and here are the two products I did use!

 

Seba Med Anti-Dry Hydrating Body Lotion
This was quite amazing actually!  It's a pity it only lasted one go...but I found it to be super moisturising and hydrating!  The smell isn't offensive either! 


Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream
This was my absolute favourite product of the December box!  I used it everytime I washed my hair after brushing it out when it was semi-damp.  It smells like birthday cake - SO YUMMY!!  And looks like whipped cream...mmm :)  Delicious!  It also leaves my hair feeling super soft and silky.  Love it!
