MY THOUGHTS:
As you all know, I am a BIG fan of Glossybox. Their monthly boxes consistently contain high end products. I am often impressed with product sample size, and almost always thoroughly enjoy using products I amsent. It is also the only monthly beauty subscription service that I have stuck with for longer than 6 months. Myglam/Ipsy, Birchbox and Beauty Army all ended in disappointment after 4 deliveries or less.
December's box was valued at over $60 USD, over double the monthly cost! (which I was very pleased with :) I of course like to feel that I am getting my money's worth)
Although I will say, this box was not my favorite thus far. I am not a big fan of bath products, so I wasn't thrilled with the bath salts. I am also still unsure if my Jewelmint piece is a necklace/name tag or purse chain?? (If anyone knows please feel free to comment below!lol)
I did however, LOVE the Zoya nail polish- it was the perfect sparkly color for the Holidays. I also enjoyed the Wella sample,  and Pleats Please! perfume.
My favorite item in the box was the Mark. Lipclick lipstick. I absolutely adored the magnetic click closure feature packaging! and the lipstick itself was soft, creamy and pigmented.

Did you love your December GlossyBox?
Let me know your thoughts!

& STAY TUNED! A Full Review of the January 2013 "The Man Repeller" Glossybox will be up Very Soon! :)

  2. Wow! A friggen JewelMint piece? I want a friggen JewelMint piece in my Glossybox. That's amazing.

    My December Glossybox was pretty awesome and definitely my favourite in a long time (but I have the UK Glossybox--so my products were quite different).

    January's Glossybox though...meh.
