Well hello there!
As you all know I like to un-box the Glossy Box subscriptions every month so this month is no different, and this month is the Beauty SOS box. It contains 5 essentials that will come to the rescue for the party season so lets get in to it...

In my opinion possibly the best thing we have ever received in a box, I have never tried anything from Huda so I was very excited to see this. I was expecting them to include a non everyday colour but I was wrong because it's a beautiful colour, on me it is a browny nude shade. I have tried this and I absolutely love the formula of it so this get's a massive thumbs up from me. They are super expensive at £18 but if the formula is good then it is worth it. 

This is a two-in-one cleanser which I am really looking forward to trying because I take my makeup off with a wipe and that is really bad for your skin. Using professional microdermabrasion crystals, this will gently exfoliate, polish and purify your skin. It will also leave your skin leaving skin feeling soft and hydrated. I don't know about you but this sounds amazing and considering the full size product is worth £26.74 this must be good! It is a deluxe mini but it gives you a real chance to try it out before buying the full size. 

I was also very excited to see an eyeshadow palette in the box because this could come in handy for someone as it is just before party season. This is super travel friendly as it is extremely light weight, small and compact. Bonus is that it retails for only £9.99 so you won't exactly be breaking the bank either if you wanted to buy it. I personally love the colour story of this palette, it is basically shades I am always drawn to. It has 2 perfect matte crease shades and the rest of them are shimmers which are perfect for the festive season! 

Yourgoodskin Balancing Skin Concentrate
This product has a combination of green tea and vitamin c to help improve skin texture, moisture, radiance, oiliness and skin tone evenness in just 28 days. I have never heard of this brand before but you can get it in Boots and this product sounds amazing. I am looking forward to giving this a go, this is a deluxe mini so I'm hoping I have enough to last a month. The full size £16.99 so not super expensive but if I like it I will be definitely picking up the full size!

Living Proof Restore Mask Treatment
I still am not really one for hair masks but this one says that this will restore damaged hair, cuticles and moisture levels. Which to be honest I need something like this for my hair at the moment, my scalp is real dry. After you shampoo you need to apply a generous amount from your roots to your ends, leave on for 5 minutes then rinse. It sounds simple enough so maybe I should give this a go and let you know what I think!

Extra treat - Chloé Perfume Sample
So Glossy Box have kindly given us an extra treat this month and it is something I love - perfume! I love the original Chloé and I received a Nomade sample. The description of the smell is a fresh and feminine fragrance of classic rose, sensual and chic. I absolutely love it! Definitely putting this straight in my hand bag.

So that is the November Glossy Box Opening, if you are interested in signing up for Glossy Box you can here. Also it's been a year since I've been doing the Glossy Box posts which is crazy!
