January Glossybox 2014

Hey girlie's!!!

You may remember that last year I gave up on Glossybox and instead subscribed to Birchbox, the reason for me un-subscribing to Glossybox was because I was starting to feel constantly disappointed with the contents of my boxes and basically I had, had enough!! As its a new year and all that jazz I thought I would give Glossybox another go, as back in the day I used to love Glossybox, so I thought why not? This month's theme is 'back to basics' which is designed to get us back on the road to being moisturised, toned and having healthy skin.

So lets see the little treasures I received inside my January Glossybox...

Anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Wake-Up Under Eye Patches
 I'm quite looking forward to using these little under eye patches as I've never used anything like it in my life ha ha. They are basically little patches that you place on your under eye area to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and revitalise the delicate skin around your eyes, I've also loved everything that I've tried from Anatomicals in the past so I'm expecting quite good things from these. The full size 3 pack retails for £6.00.

Vaseline Essential Moisture Lotion 50ml
Theres not too much to say about this one, I mean I think everyone has tried a Vaseline body lotion in their time, haven't they?? I guess its nice to have for travel purposes though. The full size Vaseline Moisturising Lotion retails for £4.99 for 400ml.
  
Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash 50ml
You cant really go wrong with a body wash and this one from Balance Me claims to give you a morning boost with its blend of juniper, bergamot, geranuim and lavender essential oils. The full size body wash retails for £10.25 for 250ml.

Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream 3g
I'm abit miffed at these samples as the fact this is a Japanese brand I fear they will be super hard to find or get hold in the high street if I wanted to repurchase them again. The moisturising cream from Japan claims to revamp your skin, enriching it with vitamin E, vitamin B2, camphor and a uniquely high glycerine content. All you have to do is massage a thin layer into your skin until the cream has disappeared. The full size version of the Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream retails for £13.50 for 33g.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Floral Slanted Tweezers
I actually love the fact I got these tweezers as I've been meaning to buy some tweezers for a while now, they look like the are really good in quality too and the fact they are super cute is just a bonus ha ha. The tweezers retail for £8.00.

Overall I have to say I'm really disappointed with Glossybox this month and the fact this is my first box after un-subscribing last year makes me even more disheartened. I really do hope that all the beauty boxes do start upping their game abit, who remembers the good old days when we received the HD Brows Palette and Illamasqua goodies???

What did you think of this month's box beaut's?? I'd love to know.

  4. It looks like everyone got the same thing this month and it really doesn't look very exciting at all. I'm glad the gift subscription I had expired in Dec as the only thing I would have been happy with in this box would have been the tweezers and that's only because I've just had to chuck some of mine x
