November Glossybox: The Christmas Gift Guide

Hello honeys,

Over the weekend, I was sent the November GLOSSYBOX to try out by the lovely girls at Glossybox HQ. As always, I couldnt resist and kindly accepted. I would love to sign up to Glossybox as out of the boxes i have tried, and reviews i have seen it is the one mostly suited to my tastes however the only thing stopping me is the fact that they only take credit card and sadly i dont have one! 
Today, I also introduced my Mum to the GLOSSYBOX concept as she was highly intrigued and she thought it was a great idea! 
If you are unfamiliar with GLOSSYBOX please see my other posts here.
 
 
 
♥ Arbonne FC5 Ultra Hydrating Hand Creme ♥
Im not the world biggest fan of hand creams but they are always the products that are 'nice to have'. I suppose i should get into the habit of using them more often! Arbonne is a brand that personally i have never heard of. This is a 15ml sample size so small enough to throw into your handbag. The full size 118ml bottle retails for £19.00 and is available on their website here.
♥ Dead Sea Spa Magik Dead Sea Bath Salts ♥
One of the previous Glossyboxes included some of the dead sea spa magik exfoliator and if im honest i havent even used that yet! I have never used bath salts and have always seen them as something my Nan would use but i am more than willing to give them a try. This is a 250ml sample of bath salts and a 1kg bag (4x the size of this sample) retails for £5.50. You can buy them from here.
♥ Illamasqua Freak Eau De Parfum ♥
I received a sample of the Illamasqua Freak perfume from Illamasqua recently which i reviewed here. If you read my review you will know that i actually really loved this scent and it was much different from what i was expecting. I was happy to see a fragrance sample that i was familiar with in the box, even though some may think this defeats the object of the glossybox and trying new brands? I can keep this in my purse and top up as the day goes by. This is a 1.5ml sample size and the full size 75ml bottle retails for £59.00 which you can buy here.
♥ Monu Revitalising Moisturiser ♥
Monu is a brand that i have used products from before and was familiar with however i have never used a moisturiser by them. I was also pleased to know that this is a full size 50ml tube which actually retails for £16.25 so you have already got this months moneys worth with only one product! Im looking forward to giving this a whirl. It is available to buy from here.
♥ Nail Rock Designer Nail Wraps ♥
I was also familiar with Nail Rocks and have bought some in the past although i havent actually used them as i think they seem to fiddly although i do love how they look when applied. This black and white striped version arent ones i would personally choose but i am willing to give them ago. This is a full size pack that retails for £6.65 and are available to buy from ASOS.

The winner for me in this months box is the Monu revitalising moisturiser which i am really excited to try as it is meant to be light, easily absorbed and contains soothing cucumber. 

Are you signed up to GLOSSYBOX? What products did you receive this month?

  4. Love the idea of Glossybox but always wondered how much stuff I would actually use and what would put off using and throw in a drawer never to be used. How long have you been signed up? And how many of the items you have received have been not really your thing? Would love to know how long you've been signed up and if you think it's worth it?
