With buying a house, this month, spending money on beauty products has been reduced. Needless to say, I was extremely excited at the delivery of my November GLOSSYBOX!
I am a little puzzled that the box is entitled, ‘Stocking Fillers’ as I would have expected that in the December issue, but maybe I am missing some information about the December delivery?
Anyway, I am so pleased with the contents of this months box and just couldn’t wait to show you it.
There are some brands in here that I already know and love, and also some new faces which I am excited to try.
1. Nails Inc. – Kensington Caviar in Porchester Square, rrp £11/10ml
This is a very chic colour and is described as a ‘muted mushroom ‘ shade. I have already tried it on. I love the Nail Inc.formula , especially the the darker or matte tones, as they can sometimes only need one coat and they last a long time on my nails.
2. Dermalogica – Daily Microfoliant, rrp £38.50/75g
Everytime I pass a Dermalogica stand I have to stop myself from buying something. I tell myself that I have the only skin are I need at home ( as if that normally stops me). Now I am so pleased to be able to try something from their brand, yay! It is described as a gentle exfoliation that leaves your skin smoother and brighter. I am intrigued to how it works as it is a fine powder with tiny beads of rice in, very different from my usual cream based exfoliators. I shall have to investigate and get back to you on that one.
3. Alison Claire Natural Beauty – Mango Body Butter, rrp £15/200ml
Wow, the noises I have just made testing this on my hand! It smells incredible! The texture is also extremely creamy and soaks in quickly leaving the delicious smell behind. I keep going back for another sniff. Yummy!
4. WEI Beauty – White Lotus Hydrating Face Treatment Pads, rrp £55/x6 pads
Well I can say straight away that however wonderful this product is, it will definitely not be on my shopping list for a long while. I am not sure I could justify that amount of money for 6 face pads, but hey I will enjoy this one and I have heard lots of fab things about this brand.
5. Dr Jart+ – Water Fuse Beauty Balm, rrp £18/50ml
I recently received another Dr Jart BB cream in a beauty box and found it too light to use, although the formula itself was very pleasant. This one aims to create a dewy look, which I really like so I am hoping I can use this one. If it is too light I may use it under my foundation or mix it in.
I think there are going to be a few products here that I may fall in love with so watch out for them in future posts.
Let me know if you have enjoyed your latest Beauty Box too!
