Glossy Box: Christmas edition

Saturday, December 15, 2012
I had unsubscribed to Glossy Box at the end of September, so I didn't received the amazing November box - it looked quite fantastic, but I have resubscribed to get the December/Christmas Glossy Box - and I am fairly impressed!
Firstly, I received six products from the brands: Sebamed, Mary Greenwell, Rituals, Seche, Sleek and Kryolan - the last three brands I have heard of and I was excited to see those brands included. Here are the products I received!
Firstly, the Sebamed hydrating body lotion, it comes in a small bottle (I mean really small) so it definitely wont last long but I am excited to use it as I do get really dry skin in the winter - although I would have preferred the face cream as this box included two body lotions. 

Staying with the theme of body lotions I also received the Rituals Magic Touch Cherry Blossom and Rice Milk Body Cream. I have been wanting to try some of the Rituals body products/fragrance for a while now but I need to work my way through the stash I already have but this looks like a great product and it smells really nice and clean too. A travel size of this product is available.

A fragrance sample is next and it is 'Lemon' by Mary Greenwell - I have not heard of this fragrance before and I really don't like the scent. The scent is a mix of lemon washing up liquid and my dads aftershave/cologne - not a great mix!

Now onto the Seche nail polish in the shade 'precious' which I was quite excited about even though the shade definitely isn't me, especially for this time of year but the shade turned out to be really pigmented which I wasn't expecting and it applies nicely. Although the nail bottle bottle does look a bit battered and worn for some reason. 

The blusher is swatched above as well. The blusher is by Kyrolan for Glossy Box and it is in the shade 'glossy rosewood' and it is a gorgeous shade. In the pan this shade looks quite bright and pale but on my skin is a pale dusky rose shade with purple/mauve undertones - it is actually really nice, smooth and pigmented.

The last product is a lipstick from Sleek, I haven't tried any Sleek products before. The packaging for the lipstick is great and the lipsticks come in various finishes. The product comes great but the shade is awful, in my opinion, and I definitely will not wear it so I am not going to swatch it as I am giving it to a friend.

  6. Nice box! I've never subscribed to Glossy Box before, but I see that every month they offer some interesting products. The Seche nail polish looks very promising, I use their top coat right now and it's amazing quality (makes my nail polish lasts all week without chipping!)! Also, Thanks for visiting my blog! If you like, we can follow and support each others' blog! :D
