December GlossyBox : Christmas Edition

This month's GlossyBox is a special limited edition Christmas box. The first thing you will notice, is the shiny red box, with black bow and white tissue paper. As much as I love the baby pink & brown colour theme of the original GlossyBox's, I absolutely loved the colour scheme of this one!
The theme of the box this month was "Christmas Gift Guide - Part 2", all items carefully selected to ensure you are the "Belle of the ball at any Christmas party". This has got to be my favourite box of all the months so far. I absolutely love everything in it, and there's not one thing I wouldn't use. I especially like that there a few make up items.
  • Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lipgloss "Tokyo" - This is a really pretty shade, and I can definitely see myself getting a lot of use out of this.
  • Deborah Lippmann Nail Varnish "Razzle Dazzle" - This is AMAZING. The first thing I noticed when I opened my box as it was so sparkly and pretty.
  • Deborah Lippmann "Stripped To Go" Sachet - This is a finger mitt for removing nail varnish, great on the go!
  • FAB Daily Face Cream - This cream is really lightweight & sinks into the skin very quickly but leaves it so soft and is a great base for makeup. It is for sensitive skin & contains an antioxidant booster. So far, so good.
  • Nouveau Lashes "Noir" Mascara - I was really excited when I saw this in the box. I am a sucker for mascara. I have applied this a few times. I found the brush to be quite hard, and it did hurt my lashes a little bit (that could be my application technique), but it does make my lashes look volumised & very lengthened.
  • Rituals Foaming Shower Gel - This smells AMAZING, and it's really moisturising. It's one of those products you use in the bath or shower, and get little whiffs of it throughout the day.

Did you sign up for the Limited Edition GlossyBox? What did you think of it? and what was your favourite item?

  5. It does look amazing... I didn't sign up but I'm really thinking of subscribing in the new year. I actually got the Rituals shower gel for Christmas last year in a massive Rituals gift set so I know that it smells amazing! It has beautiful texture too when you use it. Really recommend Rituals as a brand in general :)

  16. So far, from all the blogs and youtube videos I've seen, only the "big" youtubers/bloggers get this box with these products for December. Everyone else gets a completely different box. I hope this isn't the case because that's unfair. If I get the other box I'm going to be highly disappointed. I understand that everyone gets different products in each box but to only give the good stuff to certain people just because they have thousands of subscribers is just unfair.

  40. Deborah Lippmann is really good nail polish, and that one looks especially sparkly and pretty - perfect for the holidays! This box seems like a definite gift because it is filled with really good products! i'd love to try the FAB Daily Face Cream because it has antioxidants in it. I wish we had this in Canada.

  50. Aaaw i wish i had subscribed in time to get the christmas box!! I'm thinking about subscribing now to get the january box but I'm not sure really, Zoe I've seen that you've already got quite an amount of boxes, all in all would you recommend subscribing?
    It's just normal that you don't love 100 % of the products they send but I think it would be good to at least like 70 % of what you get, otherwise it's a waste of money. (14 €/month)

    I just started my own blog
    http://lizzizzil.blogspot.com/
    I guess it won't be about fashion and make up only but also about my (weird) life, im 20, german and live in Turin (Italy) so somtimes I write in english and sometimes i write in italian so that everyone (am WHO!? :D ) can follow me.
    I love your blog it's very personal and inspiring. You're beautiful and you seem to be a lovely person. Good Luck with everything!

  67. My christmas glossybox was really similar to yours. Unfortunately I did not get a nail polish. But it's ok. The other things are so amazing. Have a look at mine if you like: onestitchahead.blogspot.com

    zoe, please tell me/us what's on your wishlist for x-mas. I would be so exited about that! thx :)

  68. The nail polish is just stunning isn't it. I love the look of the mascara, wish I would have got that in my box! Great post X

    ReplyDelete
  69. I LOVED this month's Glossybox! Mine is exactly like yours except with a cleanser from FAB instead of moisturiser (yay! I was actually looking for a good new cleanser. My only criticism of it is that it leaves my face a bit too squeaky clean but hey, its great!). I love the lipgloss and the polish (which I'm currently wearing). I'll watch out for that mascara wand! Hopefully it won't poke my eye/hurt my eye ha! Last two months Glossybox sent me antiaging products which I was disappointed with but I think they outdid themselves this month xx

  92. WOW the Glossy Box you get in England is amazing, compared to the newly released Australian one. Those are some decent sized products in there and the Deborah Lippmann nail polish - if only we had that down in Australia.
    You've inspired me to do a post on the Australian Glossy Box now!
    Love your blog and vlog!!
