The January Glossybox has arrived!  And this month it's Valentine's themed!  I love the hot pink box, which although is not as 'glossy' as last months box, it's an absolutely stunning colour, perfect for the occasion and has had lot's of praise throughout the blog world!  It would be amazing if the Glossy team stuck with this box for a while.

We all know how amazing the December box was, so there's more than likely going to be a bit of a lull after.  I'd seen a few posts already from the girls who receive their boxes a little earlier and I have to say I didn't have the highest of hopes for this months products. However even though there's no wow product for me, and despite there being one serious dud (I'm thinking an error!), I actually think that I'll use up everything I received in this months Glossybox!

Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner:  I've tried a few things from this brand in the past and enjoyed every one of them.  I got the colour 'Powder Pink' and although I prefer the quality and pigment of Benefits Eye Bright, a similar product, this a really great staple to have in your make-up bag.  One thing I'm not crazy about is the extra long handle... Eyeko have tried to sell this as a handy tool for sharpening the pencil to the 'tiniest nub', but I just see it is as taking up too much extra space in my make-up bag!  Oh well!

FAB Body Moisturiser:  (and a not a body wash as the Glossy product list stated!) For some reason my sample looks like it's been through a war, covered in a tonne of scratches!  I'm not overly keen on the smell of this moisturiser but it's faint enough to not to cause any great offence.  The moisturiser itself is nice a light, perfect for travelling with!

Murad Dewy Finish Skin Perfecting Primer:  A brand that I've never heard of, and I was slightly disappointed as I got a primer in last months box.  However I was plesently surprised when I saw that this primer was tinted. I don't think a 'dewy finish' is particularly necessary for my oily skin, but I'm looking forward to giving this product a go nevertheless!

Clarins Extra Firming Day & Night Cream:  I was really pleased see some Clarins products in my box, thinking here is definitely something I'll be using up!  However this is where the dud came in, the Day Cream I received didn't have the foil cover on like the Night version and seems nearly empty! Looking on facebook I don't seem to be the only one to have received a seemingly half used product either!  I mean what's going on?  Was this out a tester at one of the Glossy events or something?  I'm definitely going to be writing to the Glossy Team to let them know... let me know in the comments if you received anything similar.

Are you subscribed to Glossybox or any other subscription beauty box?  Let me know what you think of this months or any other box you've received.

  3. My box was slightly different, had a nail polish and cleanser/toner instead of the clarins items. I really loved mine as it was more make up based. But I saw the December box reviews and I don't think anything could beat that :) x
