Glossybox November 2014 Edition ♥


I have to admit I've been a little slow when it comes to blogging the past few weeks but last week I received my Novembers Glossybox and I knew it was time to kick my butt in gear and finally start doing some regular posts!

Last months box failed to impress me and because of this I wasn't really that bothered when my confirmation email come through saying my box was in the post. Needless to say, when it eventually did come I was a little excited and ripped it open to see what goodies were inside!


The first thing I noticed when I open my parcel was a pretty white envelope of a "personal invitation" to Best Secret with a lovely £20 voucher inside. Now I've never heard of Best Secret before but from what I can tell as a newbie and just flicking through their site, is it's a website selling designer fashion for a discount price. Simple. Membership to the website is recommendation only which it seems even more exclusive and mysterious. I'm not too sure if I'll ever actually use this voucher though as if you read the small print on the voucher, you're minimum order must be over £60 and I really can't see me spending that much on designer clothes! I'd rather just pop to Primark!

Inside my box this month:

eye pencil

Lollipops Eye Pencil - €14
A new brand for me but I love the packaging and it's something that I would definitely pick up for myself if I saw it in the shops. The product itself I was hoping for something a little different as I don't really use pencil for my eyes anymore and opt for felt tip eyeliners instead BUT I will definitely give it a try and hoping it might convert me to the pencil side!

burts bee

Burt's Bees Lip Shine - £6.99
Burt's Bees is one of those brands that I've heard of but never actually tried for myself so to see this in my box made me very happy! It's in a very girly pink shade and it has a slight coconut scent to it (I think anyway). For me £6.99 is a little steep to pay for essentially a lip gloss as I'd much prefer to buy a pot of Vaseline for half the price, but nevertheless I will still use it as I'm sure it will come in handy over the next few months!

h20 skincare

H20 Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment - £27.50 
The first skincare product in this box and it's another brand that I've not heard of. Surprise!I am really excited to try this though and it sounds like such a perfect product for the cold winter months. I'm not too sure about putting it in the fridge though as I like my face masks to be comforting and relaxing not cold!

monu skincare

MONU Soothing Hawaii Facial Oil - £26
Another skin care product but from MONU this time and another product I'm really excited to try! The smell of this is amazing, I seriously cannot stress that enough! I cannot wait to try this!


2True Pro Sparkles Glitter Nail Polish - £4
Finally a brand that I've actually heard of! 2True have featured in a Glossybox before and I was quite happy to see it back in again but this time in the shape of a gorgeous nail glitter pot. It does advertise it as nail polish but it's actually just a pot of glitter. This is a perfect addition to any make-up bag, especially with the upcoming Christmas parties!

 Although there was a few products that I was happy to try, I once again wasn't that impressed with it overall. Although I love toners and cleansers, I don't get very excited when I see them in a box. I signed up to Glossybox so my make-up bag would open up and get new brands in but the past few boxes just haven't impressed me and I'm seriously considering my subscription to Glossybox.

Have you loved your Glossyboxes and should I stay?
