Festive Treasures - Glossy Box December 2013

This month Glossy Box have put together a 'Festive Treasures' box...
I love it for 3 reasons:
  1. I love the name 'Festive Treasures'
  2. I love the design on the box - A Christmas tree made of beauty products? YES PLEASE
  3. The products....

Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals Razor - The largest item in the box and something very practical. I know this brand are good so I'll happily put this to use and I actually think its a great product to include in a beauty box... but I am curious to know who would actually consider a razor a festive treasure? Let me know in the comments below. This retails at £6.49

Lipsy London Glam Fragrance - This smells lovely, but I was annoyed to see it in my Glossy Box because the exact same sample was in this months Birchbox 

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Nude Lip Gloss - I love the colour of this lip gloss and what makes it even better is that it has a non-sticky formula. It has already found a home in my everyday make-up bag :) A full size retails for £12

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr eye-shadow - I love these eye-shadows and I have 4 of them already, so I was really pleased that not only was this a lovely colour, but also one I did not currently own. Well done Glossy Box :) These retail for £4.99

Seche Nail Lacquer - This shade 'audacious' is a really pretty hot pink colour and I've heard really good things about this brand so I was pleased to see this - these retail for £9.95

I'm super happy with this box and love every product inside! I'm really pleased to see more make-up items included :) I know I moaned about the fragrance being doubled up from the Birchbox but it does smell lovely so it could be worse! It also came with a 10% discount code so it's now even more tempting to buy a full size! 

What do you think of this months box? Let me know in the comments below...

  1. Ooh you got a much better colour in the nail varnish than I did. I would love to try those eye shadows out as well, I got a mascara in my box.

    It was a really good box this month.

  2. It was a great box this month for sure, fingers crossed Glossybox keeps this up next year too :o). Xx

  3. Looks lush. A lot of beauty boxes seem to be including affordable drug-store make-up in their offerings these days - good stuff :-)

    1. Usually I moan there isn't enough make-up included, but I was really happy with the balance in this box :) x

  4. I do love that nail polish , that box sure looks good .x

  5. ah its great that you love every item in this box! i have never signed up to a beauty box although I really want to, i'm worried i receive items i would never use.

    I use this razor too and i love it, the perfume bottle is so pretty!

    1. Being honest I do receive quite a lot of products I never use, but then I also have a sister who is very happy to receive them so its win win! :) x

  6. I love love love the box this month, however I've not been overly impressed with the content none of them seem 'Christmassy' (bar the box) and I don't know razors just don't get me excited and I can't get over that (although I used that type for years and loved them) x

    1. Totally agree... I appreciate the fact that it's something I know I will actually get use out of, but it's certainly no 'festive treasure' x
