I actually nearly didn't even bother doing it because I'm so late but as I had the pics taken I said I might as well.
First of all I need to tell you what happened with my December Box and why there are no pics of that.
It's simple really...............I never got one.
Yes the BEST box of the lot and I missed out! And I nearly missed out on this one too.
Long story short I was skipped out on the pay run due to a technical error that Glossy Box had and even though they dispatched a free December box to me to make up for it I have yet to receive it (so I have given up on that at this stage).
The same "error" was happening again with this box so I ended up receiving it pretty late (and that is partly my excuse for only putting this up now ;-)
You may be asking why I still want to get Glossy Box after the amount of trouble I have had with it well........... I actually love trying the products in it and it's one of the only beauty boxes that deliver to Ireland.
I really wish they would dispatch the Irish boxes first (to allow for the extra delay). I have been getting boxes since September last year and not once have I not known what's going to be in the box.
It's never a surprise for me because we get them nearly 2 weeks AFTER the people in UK so it's all over the Internet before it arrives.
Ok rant over ......on with the show.
Let me tell you about the January Glossy Box (which was the Valentines Special) and what I received in mine
First off to make it look EXTRA Valentiney they changed the box from light pink to a fuchsia pink (which I actually wish they'd keep!) and inside instead of the usual black paper there was....you guessed it PINK paper, it was super cute.
First up I got this Eyko Skinny Eyeliner in Black. I was really happy with this because I needed a new eyeliner and this one goes on really nicely and stays on through out the day. If you notice in the pic above (of the contents of the box) the blue box is the eyeline. It's really long. The idea of that is so that you can use the eyeliner right down to the end. There's a handle on the end of it and you can pare the liner right down to the handle.
While the idea is great in that nothing goes to waste the downside is because the eyeline is SO long it wouldn't fit into my makeup bag that I carry in my handbag.
I also got Davines Authentic Formulas Cleansing Nectar which I haven't tried yet but look forward to trying because it's organic and natural and should be perfect for my sensitive skin!
Next up I got Murads Skin Perfecting Primer. The colour of this wasn't quiet right for my skin but i'll experiment with it through the year as my skin colour changes through the summer. I like that it came in a handy pump bottle (rather than a sachet)
The Davines Moisturising Balm smells SO gorgeous! You can use this on you face/ hair/ body.
I don't think i'll be using it on my face but can't wait to try it on my hair and body.
And finally I got this FAB (First Aid Beauty) Gentle Body Wash. Perfect for sensitive skin (which if you didn't know I HAVE). This feels lovely and left my skin feeling lovely and soft. I'm actually tempted to buy the full size of this!
And that's what was in my January Glossy Box.
Sorry for the SUPER late post.
What's in my February Glossy Box post will be up very soon and I'm photographing March's one as we speak!
