January Glossybox – Roundup

Ah its that time of the month again when my postman drops off a delightful box of goodies for me to test and play with, Glossybox is my favorite of the monthly subscription boxes and continues to shine bright in the world of makeup.

but I wont babble to much about all that, heres what I got in this months box


Nail Medic – Nail and Cuticle Energizer – my nails are horrible, one of things I do when I am anxious is either nibble my nails or the skin around them and they just look bad but using this has made my skin and nails feel a little better, I adore the color and the scent is actually quite pleasant compared to what nail polish is, I can see this being one of those items that I will use regularly.

Evelyn Iona Cosmetics – Green Tea Primer – Primer is one of those beauty products I see everyone talk about but me being the newbie that I am, I don’t know the different between a primer and a good face cream.. but I have used this and I am now not going back! its a gentle scented little beauty that has become a new favorite of mine, sits on the skin lightly and has helped my makeup go on and stay on for a lot longer than any other cream that I use.

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Facial Oil – I have seen Dr Botanicals products around lately and I have most certainly seen facial oils practically everywhere on Instagram, so I was interested in trying them out and of course you could imagine my excitement finding them in my box this month, I have used a facial type oil before back in one of my Birch Boxes and I actually prefer this better, its not as oily as the old one, which if you weren’t careful made my skin really oily, but this goes on almost like water and has little to no scent at all,  A pleasant little surprise!

Apicia Cream Blush – Looks like another facial cream? Nope, its a lovely dark red blush, which surprisingly when blended in doesn’t look as shocking as it does in the tube, I have never used a cream blush before because I was always worried how the color would look, would it be to bright.. but I am very wrong and much like the Primer, I am not going back to the old ways, I am converted hah.

Books Beauty Beneath Supplements – I am going to be brutally honest with this one, I wont be trying them out, they happen to contain fish oils and beef gelatin and aren’t vegetarian friendly but I am going to offer them to my mum to see if she would like to give them a try, they are a boots own branded multi vitamin tablet that you take once a day and come in two different sizes, claim to help with fine lines, wrinkles and help improve skin texture.

This months box has been a wonderful selection of skin friendly products and its been wonderful pampering my skin and nails for a change, if you would like to give Glossybox a try you can here and enjoy a little pamper time!

Until next time

    Ooooooooh I’ve always wanted to try a beauty box subscription but I’ve never been sure if they’re worth the money. That Moroccan Rose facial oil looks heavenly though 😍😍

    I don’t it very good that they added tablets into the the box. Wrong choice for me- especially not being friendly for everyone.

      not all is lost, my mum has gladly taken them off me, I am sure there is an option in your profile that you can mention that you dont eat meat but i started this subscription when i was a meat eater x

    So many fantastic products this month! I swear by Nail Medic – it isn’t as harsh as other cuticle products out there.

    This box looks amazing, my favourite product is definitely the facial oil!

  19. January 30, 2018 / 10:48 pm

    The primer and the blush look so interesting! I am always up for trying new primers and the packaging of that blush looks very intriguing. Like you said, it looked like a face cream at first glance! xx

    Oh this is a really good box, I have a Birchbox subscription at the moment. But this one looks amazing.

    I didn’t think a beauty box would contain supplements, not sure how I feel about that! Love the sound of the Nail and Cuticle Energizer though, the bottle is a gorgeous colour too.

    Not sure how I feel about supplements in a beauty box! The Nail and Cuticle Energizer sounds great though, love the bottle colour!
