November GlossyBox

So you've already read 1784 posts on the November GlossyBox but I need to have my 2 cents worth, so humour me.

There is so much negativity surrounding this months Glossy. Last month complaints were uttered that all the boxes were the same, and this month bloggers are moaning over the products they recieved weren't the ones they wanted from the November selection. Sadly it seems GlossyBox can't please everyone.

Personally, I think GlossyBox did a fantastic job this month. All the products are ones I would want to use so I'm not particularly vexed over my boxes contents. Is it just me, or are there some great smelling products in this months GlossyBox too? Yum.

I will be signing the Boyfriend up for Glossy Men!

I received: Illamasqua 'Freak' Eau De Parfum, Nail Rock's Designer Nail Wraps in 'Black and White Stripes,' Monu Revitalising Moisturiser, Dead Sea Spa Magik Bath Salts and Arbonne FC5 Ultra Hydrating Hand Creme. 

First up, 'Freak.' Many bloggers have had a downer on this perfume... I however, LOVE it. I hummed and harred over it initially but after smelling it (and getting my boyfriend to smell it too) I decided it was my kind of thing. Very different to many of the generic floral scents on the market. I like it but I don't know if the price tag (59 pounds for 75ml) is justifiable against the other perfumes on the market for around the 40/45 pound mark. We'll have to see come Christmas. 

I love the idea behind the nail wraps and my heart flipped when I saw the leopard print packaging. I was super disappointed to see my wraps were actually black and white stripped! The idea behind these wraps are that they are long lasting, perfect for people who don't have to remove their polish every 2 days for work! Sadly for me I'm going to have to use them on my toes so I can push their longevity to the max. Watch this space for a review.

These Sea Salts sound perfect, They help dry skin, complexion, muscle pain, bad backs, soften skin and relax the mind. I've only heard good things about these salts and the nice big sample will mean I can test the salts against all their claims! Time for a bath, me thinks.

I've used the hand creme. I like it, it smells good, it absorbs quickly but I wouldn't pay the price for a full version as it does nothing my Lush hand cream doesn't do for half the price. Saying that, I definitely can never have too many hand moisturisers. Especially living in cold, unpredictable England. Another welcome addition to my makeup drawer.

This moisturiser smells GREAT. Its so fresh and the scent isn't too over powering. My skin feels smooth and healthy after just one application. Fab. I'll certainly be using this in the coming months and I'll be sad when it runs out. I'll even go as far to say its my favourite GlossyBox product this month!
