I can’t believe it’s mid December already! It seems like no time ago November’s Glossybox was arriving at my door, and now the Christmas box is here! December’s box doesn’t actually have a Christmas theme regarding products, but the box itself has a pretty snowflake print, so I may use it to package up some Christmas gifts!
Here’s what’s in December’s box –
- So Susan Concealer Quad (full size) £18.95
- Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain in colour Coral (full size) £12.99
- SkinPep Hydra Boost- Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum (trial size 15ml) £8.99
- TRESemmé Renewal Hair and Scalp Nourish 60 Second Treatment Shot (4x 15ml set) £5.50
- Anatomicals Zap! Zap! Zap! Gets that Chap. Day and Night Spot Stick (full size) £3.00
Total value of box – £49.43
I have to say the value of the box really surprised me, I really didnt think these products would be worth pretty much £50! So I’ll start off with the plus points – I really like the Tresseme set, I’ve used one of the treatment shots so far and it left my hair feeling smooth and nourished, so the rest will definitely get used. The Hyaluronic Acid Serum was also a favourite – this is really similar to Indeedlabs Hydraluron Ultimate Moisture Boosting Serum which I love. The super silky serum melted into my skin to hydrate it without leaving any residue, which is a bonus! And the Bellapierre Cheek and Lip Stain is a lovely easy to wear coral shade, it gave a hint of colour to my cheeks but didn’t really show on my lips.
Ok so now onto the negatives. I have to say I’m not overly impressed with the So Susan Concelaer Quad. Firstly, its way too dark for my fair skin tone – I did rectify this by mixing the white shade with the other colours though, but the concealers also felt quite dry and were hard to work with. Also the palette is TINY (only 4g of product) and for an RRP of nearly £19 I think it’s way over priced. Another no so great product was the Anatomicals Day and Night Spot Stick, I usually love Anatomicals products but this hasn’t helped get rid my big red friend sitting in the middle of my chin at all. It’s only been 24 hours though so maybe I need to persevere…
Overall I’m a bit on the fence about this box, for me there are a couple of good products and a couple of not so good ones. Also, November’s box received a Best Secret invitation and voucher, and I think it would have been nice to get a little extra something in December’s box really as it is Christmas!
I hope you enjoyed my review, I’d love to hear what you think? xxx
