January GlossyBox

My January GlossyBox arrived today! This is a Valentine's Day themed box and I love the hot pink colour. I reckon it should be this colour every month!




I'd been naughty and already saw pictures of this month's GlossyBox so I thought I knew what to expect. I was wrong as I received a different variety! 

All of the boxes I've seen on blogs seem to contain the following three items as standard:
  • First Aid Beauty Gentle Body Wash
  • Murad Skin Perfecting Primer
  • Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner
Plus I noticed the final two (of five) products seem to have multiple options. I saw people with Clarins Day and Night Creams, plus others had a couple of products by a brand called Davines which I've never heard of. I think I would have been disappointed with the Davines option and I would have liked the Clarins but I have a lot of moisturiser to use up at the moment! I'm really happy with what I received - I got Weleda One Step Cleanser and Toner as well as a mini Orly Nail Polish in the shade Ruby, a lovely deep red.




I was happy to receive the First Aid Beauty Body Wash as it's a brand I've looked at a few times in Boots but never purchased from. 

I'm not sure if the Murad primer is going to be very good on my super pale skin but I'll certainly give it a go.
At first I assumed I had the pale pink colour Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner everyone else seemed to have... then I noticed it was the shade Plum so I was very chuffed about that as I think it's an easier colour to use plus it will complement my green eyes :D



I'm really happy with this month's GlossyBox and I'm glad I re-subscribed to the service in December. Since this box was later this month I'm hoping I won't have to wait too long for my next box as I get too excited for my parcels to arrive!

Do you subscribe to GlossyBox? Which combination of products did you receive? What are your thoughts?

  1. I got the Clarins moisturizers and I would have preferred what you had in the box personally! The Eyeko eyeliner I also got was blue which I'd never wear! But I think these things are very hit and miss to be honest last few months i've been really impressed xx
