‘Tis the season to be glossy with December Glossybox

The latest box ‘o goodies from Glossybox is here, and it’s called ‘Tis the season to be glossy’ in celebration of the month of December.  Inside are items chosen to leave you hydrated, fragranced, and adorned for the holidays.  Here’s what I found inside my Glossybox:

hydration for your hair

Arganics by NuMe Argan Oil:  a deluxe size of argan oil for your hair.  Argan oil is super nourishing for you hair, leaving it shiny and healthy looking.  This has a slight perfumey fragrance.

hydration for your face

Skin & Co Roma Truffle Serum:  a deluxe size serum for your face.  It brightens your skin with peptides, Tuber Melansoporum and hyaluronic acid.  It smells like coconuts.  I don’t know if I got a bum one, but mine was only about 1/4 full.

hydration for your hands

Epionce Restorative Hand Cream:  a full size item.

love the full size items!

I found this to be a creamy, thick lotion that does an excellent job of hydrating my hands and leaving them super soft.

Illamasqua Medium Pencil

Illamasqua Lip & Eye Medium Pencil:  a full size item.  It’s a crap shoot in terms of the color you get, and I didn’t get one that I am thrilled about although I’m sure it’s the right color for somebody!

Mine is Thrash, and it’s orange.  More specifically, warm burnt orange.  Bummer.

Thrash swatched (try saying that five times fast!)

Looking at all the colors available, this would be last on my list.  But that’s part of the beauty box experience, you never know what you are going to get.  Maybe I should try this as an eyeliner…

Perfumies in Cloud Nine

Perfumies Solid Perfume Stick:  I think this is pretty cool.  It’s a small solid perfume stick that is great for your purse and for traveling.  My scent is Cloud Nine, which has notes of cedar, apple, bluebells, jasmine, bamboo, white rose, cedarwood, amber, and musk.  That’s a lot of notes for a small perfume stick!  It smells pretty, it’s a grown-up but outdoorsy scent.

I think my favorite item in this box is the hand cream, which is truly lovely and from a line I have never tried.  I wish I had gotten a different color pencil from Illamasqua, but you win some, you lose some!

As a side note, the box that holds those Glossybox goodies is awesome for repurposing.  It makes a pretty package for a gift, just put a ribbon around it and you are all set!  – Lisa

  1. I don’t subscribe to Glossybox, but this looks like a really nice box. I actually like the swatch of the color Thrath because I have a lipstick that it would probably work with. Thank you for the review. x

  2. Moxie, I figured it would the perfect color for someone!! I just wish it worked for me.

  3. The hand cream sounds really good, and it’s a nice bonus it’s full size!

  4. Illamasqua pencils are amazing
