January Glossybox

I've been receiving a Glossybox since around May, and have never been disappointed with the products!

A glossybox is a monthly beauty box that costs £10, and £2.95 delivery. They ask you a range of questions about your personal beauty preferences etc, to ensure that the products in the box are suitable for you!

The products can range from beauty tools such as eyelash curlers, tweezers etc, to full size make up, perfume samples, hand creams etc

I find the glossybox a great way to discover new brands and products that you possibly wouldn't have considered before, and of course, the products in the box are always worth more that the £12.95 cost!!
There are other similar boxes out here, such as the birchbox, but after looking around, the glossybox seems to be one of the better, as the majority of others include 4-5 samples, whereas with the Glossybox you are guaranteed 5 items.

So here are the items I received this month!

Anatomicals - Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Wake-Up Under Eye Patches

     I haven't had a chance to try these out yet as I only  received my box yesterday, but I'm really       excited to test these because I hate it when you have to go to work/uni with bags under your eyes, and no amount of concealer will do!
             You can get these for £6 for a pack of 3 at

                                     Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream

Again, I haven't had a chance to try these out, but I can't wait yo, as my skin gets incredibly dry! I also thought it was really good that because the samples are very small, Glossybox provided two of them, and this only counted as one product! This cream is suitable for all of your body, including face and lips, and is full of vitamins!
                You can get this for £13.50 for 33g(samples are 3g), from

                   The Vintage Cosmetic Company - Floral Slanted Tweezers

We were already told that this product would be in the box this month, and it certainly doesn't disappoint! The pattern is so pretty and they're so easy to use too! Definitely recommend these!
           They are £8, and you can get them at

                          Balance Me - Super toning body wash 

I was so happy to see this product in my box!! I love the balance Me range, after I first discovered them through a similar body wash that came with an ELLE magazine. The face that it is 99% natural origin just adds to the appeal of the product! It has a lovely scent that is incredibly moreish, and the bottle lasts for a very long time!! Will definitely be purchasing more of this range!
        £10.25 for 250ml(sample is 50ml) at

                       Beauty UK- CC Cream
This was actually my favourite product of the box, after wanting to try out a CC cream for a long time but not wanting to purchase one in case I didn't like it, this came at a perfect time!! Especially as I've just purchased some new make up brushes, which I'll do a post about at some point! This is very light product, but with lots of coverage it will last! The shade is also perfect for my skin tone which is pure luck!! But overall I loved this product, and will definitely be purchasing this again!! Also, the full size product is perfect, and means I won't have to buy it straight away,
£4.99 at

Thanks for reading my post! And please comment any questions/queries you have!
Lots of love, Jess xxx

    1. Thank you so much! I've loved your Instagram for so long! It's definitely worth getting one, and if you do a rolling contract you can cancel it at any point if you're not happy! :) xx
