Well it’s mid January already, and that means I now have the latest offerings from Glossybox to share with you! We’re back to the standard packaging now (no more pretty Christmas boxes) and I’m excited to find out which goodies are lurking in my box!

Total value of box – £33.26.
Ok so firstly, it’s great to come across a box entirely filled with full sized products. I think this is a first for me – and possibly a first ever?? My first impressions are a bit comme ci comme ca though – I’m not overly excited by the look of any of these products, but I don’t dislike the look of them either. The Kueshi Revitalizing Face Toner smells really fruity, and reminds me of a Body Shop body spray I had as a young teen, though I can’t remember the name of it. Toner is one of those funny products that some people swear by, and other don’t feel the need for at all. I’ve tried this out and it’s fairly good, it makes my skin feel that extra bit clean, but I have to say I’d rather keep strong scents out of my skincare routine.
The Nicka K New York Blush is an interesting looking product. It has a super handy mirror on top of the lid, and basically the powder blush is held at the bottom of the pot, with a powder puff fixed above which lets the powder seep through, so you don’t need any brushes for application. I actually really like this! I like the handy all in one product / applicator and the shade is an easy to wear peachy pink with a very slight hint of shimmer.
The Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow is a gel based illuminator which can be used anywhere on the face or body where you want to add a bit of highlight. The gel is a beautiful pinkish champagne shade and quite shimmery. I think this would look great on tanned skin in the summer. The MeMeMe Eyeline pencil in Clay is a mid brown matte eyeliner, it’s not the softest pencil but still perfectly wearable. I like the shade as a great alternative to black for an every day look. And lastly the Superfruits Blueberry Lip Balm. It’s 97% organic and 100% natural, and smells of course of blueberries. I’ve used this a couple of times and It’s a nice little every day balm. I do have super dry lips at the moment though so I think I really need a more intensive product. If you have ‘normal’ lips this should be fine for you.
Overall there are a couple of nice products in here, and a couple that are more on the average side. I still feel a bit on the fence about this box – I’d love to hear what you think?
I hope you enjoyed my review xxx
