Well hello there!
Today's blog is going to be about Glossy Box. I have seen so many people talk good things about Glossy Box so I thought I would give it a go. This is the first month I have ever done and I must say, I am impressed. The theme for this months box is the colder months and cosy nights in. 

Glossy Box is a beauty subscription box which you can sign up for either monthly (which I have signed up for), 3 months, 6 months or 12 months. If you choose the monthly subscription, each month you will receive 5 beauty products. The monthly subscription is only £10 a month! I think that is such a good price. I love the concept of this because you don't know what you're getting and you get to try out new products!

In this months box you get:

Greenfrog Botanic Natural Body Wash - I have never heard of this brand before but it's a vegan and cruelty free brand and all made with natural ingredients which is amazing. This body wash is super hydrating which is great for this time of year. It smells very refreshing as well as it is scented with Geranium and Peppermint. It is supposed to be really calming and relaxing whilst cleansing, I can't wait to try this! This retails for £8.95 for the full size, the one that comes in the box is only travel size and costs £3.95. It is quite expensive for a full size body wash but as it is made of all natural and organic ingredients I think it is reasonable.
Beauty Uk Contour Brush - I love love love getting new brushes, so you can imagine my excitement receiving this in the box. It is a contour brush which is great as I do this as part of my routine every day (spoiler alert - my everyday makeup routine will be a blog coming up soon!). I am always after new brushes and this one is a perfect size for contouring, and it feels really soft! This brush retails for £6.99 which is an average price for a brush, so I think this is a good brush for the price. I can't wait to get my contouring on!
Sportfx Lip Balm - This lip balm is a beautiful hot pink colour and it smells absolutely incredible! It says it is a moisturising lip balm which is so good for this time of year now it is colder, there is nothing worse than dry and chapped lips. I have tried this out briefly and it does what it says, it is extremely moisturising! It does not have a tint to it which is good for me because I prefer my lip balms to be clear. This retails for £4.99 which I think is expensive for what it is but is similar in price to the Burt's Bee lip balms.
Collection Eyebrow Powder - I love some of the Collection products! Especially their concealers so I was really happy to see this brand in the box. I have heard of this brow powder but I have never tried it myself. It has a really fine tip and the formula has fibers to add volume to your eyebrows which is something I need! I am really looking forward to trying this so if I do end up liking it, I will let you know. This retails for £4.19 which is around the average price for Collection products.
Boots Sheet Mask - I have never tried a sheet mask before and this one looks promising! This is a cleansing and purifying mask that has charcoal and willow bark in it. Sheet masks have become quite a trend lately with brands so I really want to try this and see how it goes. This mask retails for £2.50 which I think is a good price? I'm not really too sure as I have never used one before, but I would pay that for a decent sheet mask.

I really like Glossy Box considering this is the first time trying it. I think it is totally worth the money even though it is really cheap! I had a look at their previous boxes online and I'm gutted because they looked so good, I wish I signed up sooner to be honest! If you are thinking about giving it a go you can click the link here. On the card there is a sneak peek for December, which is a Party Season themed box and I can't wait, there is going to be a liquid eyeliner by Steve Laurent! I am so excited for next months box!

So that was the November 2017 edition of Glossy Box.
