What's Inside My December GlossyBox

The postman knocked again this month with a delivery of the December GLOSSYBOX.  The first thing to note is the festive red box, very nice!

As this was the Christmas edition box it was supposed to contain products to get you in the mood for a party and a few. I have got to say I really liked the December box. Here is what was inside

A full size Rituals Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel - Indian Rose and Sweet Almond Oil - £6.50/200ml

I haven't tried Rituals products yet but did spot one of their shops when out shopping recently and had planned to go in and pick something up so this is great, it smells incredible too.

Deborah Lippman Mini Nail Varnish in Razzle Dazzle and a Stripped To Go Sachet - A full size bottle would cost £14.

I have tried a few Deborah Lippman Varnishes so it is not a new brand to me, nevertheless the brand does induce excitement.
Razzle Dazzle is ideal for parties, a pretty glittery shade of dark red, almost wine in colour with flashes of brighter flecks.  I am not a huge glitter fan (I save it for special occasions as I hate removing it) so this mini size is perfect. I love that included in the box is a nail polish remover. I hope it removes the glitter with ease!

Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lip Gloss (mini) in shade Morocco - Full Size £10

As a lip gloss fanatic I loved the inclusion of a gloss in the box, I haven't tried Cargo either so that was an added bonus. I really like the shade which is a pinky/brown with a slight sparkle. I have worn it a few times, there is no stickiness either. As it is so tiny I have nearly finished it.

BLINK+GO Eyeshadow and Blush Palette - Full Size £14.95

I have not heard of Blink+Go so this is a new brand to discover. I love the concept of this palette but I am pretty certain that I would never have chosen this particular combination as the colours look so bright. However on swatching they are actually nice and not as scary as they look in the palette, and I am looking forward to experimenting with a bit of colour on my eyes. The gold and green in particular stand out.
As I am also a bit of a blush addict, the addition of blush is very welcome..

The final product in the box is a small pot of Bionova Eye Wrinkle Treatment. A full size pot of eye cream costs £43.

Bionova are another brand that I have yet to discover, GlossyBox are doing a fab job in searching out products for its subscribers to try. I look forward to trying this premium eye cream out, it seems from reading that it is tailored to my age bracket, so here is hoping it works for me!
