Well hello there!
Welcome to day 13 of Blogmas and today I have the December Glossy Box opening which I am really excited for. Obviously the theme for this month is 'All That Glitters' and includes 5 full-size products with an additional treat so let's dive in!

This sounds amazing already, so this is a iridescent highlighter that glides on your skin. It contains pure pigments that blend seamlessly, and you can use this on your eyes, cheekbones or your body so this sounds perfect for the festive season! I think this could be great for beginners in makeup who would love to put some shimmer on their lids and want something that is quick and easy. As it is multi-use it just makes the product even better and the colour is stunning! It says the product retails for £19.99 but what I have linked takes you to Look Fantastic and you can get a 2g one for £7.

I believe we got an Imperial Leather Unicorn shower related product a few months ago which I did use and it smelt amazing, so it's nice to see another another product from a familiar brand. This is a gel this time and it will leave your skin feeling soft and has a scent of pink grapefruit, citrus and floral amoras. This sounds good to me and I can't wait to use this! It says the product retails for £1.99 but I have linked it from Tesco's where you can it for £1, what a bargain.

I have never heard of this brand before which is why I love Glossy Box because it really gives you a chance to try different brands that you would never think to use. This is a hydra-gel lip mask that is formulated with green tea extract and moisture boosting Hyaluronic Acid, and will rescue dry lips. Collagen and antioxidant rich red wine extracts also help to plump and smooth the lips. This sounds absolutely amazing as I do tend to get really dry lips especially this time of year, so I will be definitely be giving this a go. This retails for £7.50 which isn't the cheapest lip mask but if it does what it says on the tin then I will be extremely happy.

This is give you that classic red lip for Christmas, and what makes it even better for me is that is has a matte finish. It has a long-lasting and pigmented formula that glides on smoothly and is a beautiful deep red shade. I haven't used a lip crayon in a long time and from past experience they are really easy to use and apply. Again I am really looking forward to trying this as I've just seen that it retails for £16.95 which is quite pricey for a lip crayon so it must be really good right?! 

I can't find a link for this product so I have just linked their UK website but this is another makeup item in the box which is exciting, and this is a jelly blush. Now I've heard of a jelly highlighter before but not a jelly blush so this really intrigues me. I've also never heard of the brand, which again is a nice way to try new things. The thought of applying a jelly blush really scares me but I am going to give this a try soon and see what I think. The colour is sort of rose gold which is my fav (of course), and it has a hydrating , pigmented and light weight formula. This retails for £12 which is quite expensive so I'm looking forward to seeing how it performs.

So this is an extra treat this month which is super lovely of Glossy Box. This is a great product to help prep your skin for the party season and it is designed to remove blackheads and impurities from your nose. I love products like this and so does my boyfriend so we will be giving them a go! This pack of 2 retails for £3.50 which is a fair price, and I have linked the website where you can buy a pack of 12 for £17.

So that is December's Glossy Box and after seeing a few comments of people saying they were disappointing, I actually really like this months box. It includes a few makeup items and skin care for such a bargain price. Glossy Box only costs £10 a month before shipping so I don't get why people complain anyway. They have been really kind and left a discount on the card 'XMASGIFT' for 10% off gift subscriptions. If that isn't convincing enough there is a sneak peek of January's box, and it will include a full size Deluxe Hyaluronic Acid Vivifying Face and Night cream from Avant Skincare, that is worth a whopping £98!!
