December Glossybox

” ’tis the season to show yourself extra love with beauty products that soften, condition and protect against the elements. For days spent on the couch by the fireplace, our December GLOSSYBOX features cozy leave-on formulas that only get better with time. “

If you’re not familiar with GLOSSYBOX, it is a monthly beauty subscription box service that delivers five deluxe sized (many times full-size) beauty/hair samples for only $21/month. Here is what I got in my December box:

1. Rituals Cosmetics Miracle Scrub in Ginseng & Ginkgo Biloba: Talk about heaven scent! From the Dutch beauty brand, centered on turning daily routines into meaningful moments, comes this delectable hand scrub which combines the energizing properties of ginseng with nourishing ginkgo biloba for the softest hands possible. My thoughts: It must have something to do with the fact that I’m not getting any younger because OH.EM.GEE my hands are dry. Like drier than ever. Even my husband commented the other day that my hands looked ancient. I am not a huge fan of lotion so I apply right out of the shower and that’s it for the day. My husband on the other hand re-applies like every half hour. So my point is…I was super excited to try this. It is a great exfoliant and moisturizer in one. It does leave your hands a little shiny (sort of like aquaphor) but absorbs nicely after about 15 minutes.

2. Nuxe Masque Crème Fraîche® de Beauté: A source of well-being and immediate freshness, this moisturizing mask with plant milks and white blossom provides intensive moisture for even the driest of skin. A rescue treatment, it provides intensive relief, instantly soothing skin discomfort. Hydrates and soothes for 24 hours, leaving skin radiant. My thoughts: I got about 10 different anti-aging products for Christmas so I haven’t had a chance to try this yet but I am familiar with (and like) Nuxe products so will definitely give it a try!

3. TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Leave In Conditioner: For the perfect pre-styling foundation, protect and prime strands with the TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Prep Leave In Conditioner. Ideal for all-day nourishment and hydration, this salon-inspired formula helps tame frizz and improve manageability for seamless styling. Controls frizz and protects against humidity for advanced all-day manageability. Spread a walnut sized amount evenly through damp hair before styling to help banish frizz. My thoughts: I love TONI & GUY hair products and this one is no exception. This is a little heavier than my usual leave-in conditioner so I’ve just been using it on my ends.

4. Bellápierre Cosmetics Mineral Lipstick in Burlesque: Bellápierre Mineral Lipsticks have been formulated with natural waxes, mineral pigments, iron oxides and antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E. Their smooth, silky, 100% natural formula delivers long-lasting color. Mineral Lipsticks are NOT tested on animals and do NOT contain animal products, lead, lanolin, parabens, or other harmful ingredients. My thoughts: This is a gorgeous berry red color. Really flattering on. And super moisturizing. So yeah, a keeper.

5. Ciaté London Mini Paint Pot in “All Aglow”: Ciaté use a combination of professional and lovingly chosen high performance formulas. Our beautiful and sophisticated packaging encourages an incredibly artistic and effortless nail painting experience. The bottle has been ergonomically designed to sit comfortably in your hand for maximum control. With a dense 250 bristle flat brush, you are guaranteed a flawless even finish. The formula is long lasting and dense with amazingly pigmented glitter, whilst formulated to be easy to apply. My thoughts: The description says this  polish has gold and RED glitter/flakes in it, but I must be color blind because mine is gold and copper/bronze. Maybe the red flakes changed color but I do not see red in my polish at all. Other than that, I am a fan of  Ciaté polishes!
