december glossybox.

Glossybox most definitely ended this year's boxes with impeccable style. This December box has to be my favourite Glossybox to date, with products that suited my beauty profile to the T. I felt as though all the products in this month's box were able to be used by so many different people and that it was thought out very well. I also felt that most if not every brand in the box was a known brand, and therefore we trust the products just that much more.

First off, the packaging. The black outer box that it got delivered in as well as the sleek grey box complimented the products in the box very well. As much as I love the classic pink Glossybox, I do prefer this grey box. It was wrapped in black tissue paper covered in stars and definitely had a festive vibe.

The box came filled with six full-sized items, which is a rarity so that was a nice surpise.
 milk_shake conditioning whipped cream 100ml / sleek au naturel eyeshadow palette / rituals body cream - cherry blossom & rice milk 70ml / seche nail polish - chocolat / glossybox blush - glossy rosewood / anatomicals lip gloss

Like everything, you always have a favourite, so for this review I thought I would focus on my preferred products within the box.
rituals body cream - If you know me, you know that any type of lotion or moisturiser is my favourite thing. I just love the different textures and scents that they come in, and this rituals one is a nice addition to my collection. 
anatomicals lip gloss - This lip gloss is one that is not too thick or sticky. It is good to use over a lip balm if you did not want any added colour and it smells amazing!

seche nail polish - I love the colour that came in my box! It is a pleasing neutral colour that would complement any skin tone. I own the very well-known Seche Vite top coat and we all know how prestigious that product is so I believe seche will have done well with their colour polishes.
sleek natural palette - Although I have not yet used this palette, I am very excited to do so! This is my very first sleek palette and I've heard nothing but good things about their eyeshadows so I have high hopes for this product in particular.

Did you guys get this box? What are your thoughts? (and if you have a blog and you did a post, link your review :) )

Hope you all had a very lovely Christmas and got tonnes of love and gifts from your favourite people!
I do have a post planned for before the New Year, so this is not the last you will see of me in 2012. (seeing as we all survived the end of the world, yay!!)

best wishes and lots of festive loves, jayj x.
