Glossybox December 2012 Review

If you read my blog you will know that I have a love/hate relationship with Glossybox and I haven't bought a box in months, when I got an email for 20% off the December box I couldn't resist and bought myself a Christmas box.

Last years box was amazing and so I couldn't wait to see what they put in this years.......
A silver box with black tissue paper with black stars - very pretty!
The contents are listed in a little booklet, along with discount codes for numerous brands that have been featured in previous boxes.
 Packed full of goodies! 
 Ayuuri Moisturising Sandalwood Face Wash
This is a full size product 200ml and retails for £3.49 here.
This is quite heavily scented and at first I wasn't sure about using it on my face but sandalwood is both anti-bacterial and moisturising so I'm going to give it a go.  I can always use it as a shower gel if my skin doesn't agree with it as a face wash. 
 Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Cherry
Again another full size item, this retails for £4.99 here.
Cherry is a lovely berry vampy shade, perfect for this time of year! It looks quite pink toned on me which is good as I am very pale so dark lippys can make me look washed out.
Mary Greenwell Lemon EDP
This is a 1.5ml sample, 50ml retails for £84.00 here making the sample worth £2.52.
I know a lot of people don't like getting perfume samples in their beauty boxes but I actually really like perfume samples! 
This is gorgeous!! I thought it might be too summery to wear now but it smells of lemons and spices - so hard to describe! I will definitely be using this up over the next week.
Rituals Cherry Blosson & Rice Milk Body Cream
This is a good size travel tube which contains 70ml, it retails for £5.00 here.
I love rituals products after last Decembers Glossybox which contained the foaming shower gel, so I was pleased to find this product in the box.  It smells divine!
Seche Nail Polish in Bella.
Another full size product! This retails for £9.95 here.
Bella is described as a deep shimmery red, it is so pretty.
I put it on as soon as my Glossybox arrived (in the evening!) so excuse the dark pic.
This is only one coat! It applied beautifully and dried really quickly.  I will  definitely be buying more Seche polishes.
 Glossybox Blusher in Glossy Rosewood
This is a bonus item, it was made by Kryolan and is a very pretty pink colour.
Definitely the best own brand product that Glossybox have sent us!

So this month is a big thumbs up and I am glad I bought the box, some lovely products that I can't wait to try and there is nothing that I dislike! A winner this month Glossybox.

Did you get a Glossybox this month? Did you get the same contents as me?
