Glossybox // November

IMG_7467 IMG_7468 IMG_7469 IMG_7470 IMG_7464


November is when most people will start their long list of Christmas shopping, so Glossybox's November 'Stocking Filler' box is aptly named. Designed to inspire your Christmas gift guide, there are a wide selection of products, most of which have a good sample size which is always something I look out for when reviewing! 

What I got in mine: 

Wei Beauty: Royal Ming Firming and Hydrating Cream
I've tested a lot of creams as of late so this isn't my most 'wow' product, however the price tag suggests that it's a luxury product so I'm intrigued to see if spending more delivers more results. 

Burberry: Burberry Body Eau De Parfum
Normally I hate fragrance samples in beauty boxes as it's usually some tiny bottle that would barely last one wear, however I'm very pleasantly surprised by the size of this Burberry sample. I love the RHW collaboration with Burberry so I'm excited to trial this product as it's something that I would definitely consider buying - good work Glossybox! 

Alison Claire Natural Beauty: Mango Body Butter
I was going to dismiss this body butter straight away as I love my Palmers coconut and Body Shop Orange body butter, however this smells divine. I'll definitely be trying this to see if it takes my top spot for body butters!

Nails Inc Kensington Caviar: Notting Hill Gate
I'm embracing more and more nail polishes as of late, so was happy to get a Nails Inc sample in this month's base. I'm not your typical girly girl who likes pink but this nail varnish is just the right amount of the shade for me to rock. Nails Inc also have a good reputation so I'm interested to see if this follows through with this particular shade. 

Dermalogica: Daily Microfoliant
Dermalogica is a brand that I've heard a lot of good stuff about but haven't actually tried any of their products myself. I'm a little confused about how to use this product as it is in fact like talc powder but I'll give it a go anyway! It's meant to leave your skin feeling smoother and looking brighter which is always a plus around this time of year when dark days and countless parties take their toll on our skin!



I've already started to try two of the products in this month's Glossybox which says a lot. I think there's a good range of products in this box and in particular I'm very impressed with the sample size of the Burberry body perfume. Although I was quite surprised they didn't include more of a festive nail polish or Christmas designed box - but maybe they'll do this for December (as I love a bit of theming!).
