Glossy Box December 2012

Well first of all, Happy New Year to you all. I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating the New Year and didn't have too much of a hangover on the 1st. I was fairly lucky and had no hangover, despite drinking a fair amount.

Anyway, today I'm bringing you my December Glossy Box post. The theme of the December Glossy Box was 'Bejewelled Christmas' - a box which allows you to look your best during the festive period.

Glossy Box December 2012, Sleek, Seche, Mary Greenwell


What was in it:

Seche Nail Lacquer in Debutant (Full Size)
Sleek True Colour Lipstick in O.M.G (Full Size)
Lemon by Mary Greenwell Eau de Parfum
Sebamed Anti-Dry Hydrating Body Lotion
Milkshake Conditioning Whipped Cream
Glossybox Blusher in Glossy Rosewood (Bonus product)

What I thought:

Initially I was a bit dubious about this box as I think that sometimes certain boxes at certain times of the year are over-hyped before you receive them. However I do like this one. I felt that the products were of a good mix and weren't simply either one or the other. Now, generally speaking, I am a lipstick, nails & blusher kind of girl so just opening this box meant I was drawn to three products straight away. However, particular products aside, I really like all of the products. The perfume, in particular, smells gorgeous and very fresh. It is quite a strong scent without being overpowering. I was a bit confused by the Milkshake product - I wasn't sure what it was or what I was meant to do with it as it sounds like something you would apply to your body. As it turns out (thanks to Glossy Box's information sheet) it is a leave-in conditioner in a foam format which you apply to freshly, towel dried hair. Brilliant. Now, a final thing worth mentioning is in this box there were 2 full-size products included; products which, if they had been bought separately, would have cost more combined than the Glossy Box itself.

What did you think of December's Glossy Box?
