GlossyBox - January (the Valentine's box)

I was really looking forward to receiving this box yesterday, as I wanted some beauty items to cheer me up! I got back home after a long day at work, and it was nowhere to be seen. Gutted. Thankfully though, a random neighbour appeared clutching my GlossyBox - he saved the day! Why the box was at a neighbour's house (who isn't even next door), and no note was left at my house, is beyond me.

Anyway, I'm very pleased with the box and the products I got. Look how lovely and vibrant it is - beautifully strong fluorescent pink colour! Although I think I'm more of a pale pink girl at heart... Nice to have a change now and again to add to my collection of GlossyBoxes.

I received the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Midnight Blue... Very excited to try this one out, as you can never have too many eyeliners and it might make a nice change to the standard black colour I wear everyday.

The two tubes of Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream and Day Cream will also come in handy. I love Clarins, but never buy anything due to the price of it! Intrigued to see what effect these creams do for me, especially as now I'm 23, it'll all go downhill from now on. If all goes wrong, I'm sure my mum would love to add these to her collection, so it's a win/win situation.

I'm not sure why I had the FAB Gentle Body Wash listed on there, when I actually received the Body Moisturiser. Either way, it's a product I have tried before and loved it. It's kind to your skin and has no overpowering smell. Very moisturising too. It'll definitely be part of my travel products when I go away for weekends, as it's the perfect size to pack.

Murad's Skin Perfecting Primer is something I've never heard of before.. I'm currently very happy with the primer I'm using at the moment, but I'll keep my mind open and will give it a go. I'm always worried about using primer due to my skin type, so we'll see how it goes.

Also got a little GlossyBox heart sweet too! Such an adorable gesture - I like little added surprises like that!

Do you receive GlossyBox? What do you think? Are you a fan of beauty boxes?

I had a different box to you and wasn't really wowed by it. I just felt like it was missing something special. The sweet and the box did excite me though :) x
