Hello my little beauties! 

As mentioned before, I signed up to GLOSSYBOX and received my first box on Thursday. 
Considering it's my first box I'm pretty impressed, I was a little reluctant to part with my money at first, the whole idea of spending money on something that I didn't actually know what I was buying scared me a little - haha. I'm pretty much set in my ways and I like to use products that I'm used to and having the choice to try and buy new products but with a GLOSSYBOX that is taken away from you... Although I am not disappointed. I expected a box filled with crap to be honest with you, the idea of being able to unsubscribe at any time is pretty much what convinced me into purchasing the box. It's safe to say I shall be continuing my subscription!  So, enough of that lets not beat around the bush ... lets get stuck in!!! 

Firstly I was super impressed with the gorgeous red box that everything come in, the packaging was also super cute! 
Continuing the Red Christmas theme
(I haven't supplied a photograph of that, it's literally a cute red cardboard box with my address printed on)

Inside the box I received the following ... 

- GLOSSY Magazine 
- Information Card 
- Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals Razor 
- Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Nude Lip Gloss
- Maybelline New York Volum' Express Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara 
- Seche Nail Lacquer 
- Yin Yang Skincare Rich Skin Food 

 Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals Razor. 
'Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals is a 3 in 1 razor that lathers, moisturises and shaves. Your party essential for ready to bare legs this Christmas!'
I've never been one to make a fuss over razor's, anything that does the job does me fine, during the summer months I tend to wax because I find I get better results and of course, longer lasting. Firstly I'd like to comment on the packaging, which I think is great, it's not too overpowering but it's not too bland, if I had seen this in a shop I would have picked it up and given it a chance - lol. 
So, it claims to 'Lather and Moisturize as you shave' ... IT DOES!!! I've never had such an amazing experience from a razor - how sad does that sound?! (laughing to myself right now) Around the blades there is almost a chuck of soap, it's as if someone has slotted the blades through the middle - it's magic!! I found it really easy to use and this is something I will be making a permanent product in my bathroom cupboard! 

Full Size £6.49

Maybelline New York Volum' Express Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara. 
'Colossal Smoky Eyes mascara, with collagen and kohl effect pigments, plumps lashes for a smokin' hot look'
To me, it's nothing special. I mean, it's a mascara ... that's it? I never fuss over Mascaras, they all make my lashes feel heavy and I have really weird lashes that just tend to 'lay' over my lids. I'd much rather stick on a pair of false lashes and get on with it, is that lazy? haha.  Although I found application smooth and there wasn't any clumps! I would recommend to other people though, I feel it's just my lashes that don't prove the punch when it comes to Mascara products. I do love the packaging on this though, I love having bright collections in my Makeup bag, and it really stands out!! 

Full Size for 10.7ml  £7.99 

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Nude Lip Gloss.
'This jojoba rich, non sticky. Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Nude Lip Gloss is the perfect shade, essential for the festive party season!'

I'm not a huge fan of lip glosses as a whole, Id much rather a matte lipstick any-day but this caught my eye claiming to be ''non sticky'' as far as a non-sticky lip gloss goes, it's rated quite high for me, it's sticky of course - it's a lip gloss! but there's no real 'mess' involved. It's simple to apply and stays evenly applicated. I can't say I'd purchase it myself, just for the pure reason I'd never wear it but I'll use this sample - that's for sure!  

Full Size £12 for 8ml 

 Seche Nail Lacquer 
'Seche nail polish delivers pure colour saturation, allowing for one coat coverage and a satin smooth finish, which dries quickly'
I loved this nail polish, I'm a huge fan of nail polish at the moment and I'm constantly changing colours, patterns and designs. I found this polish really good and easy to apply. I found that I needed x2 coats to get my desired effect and the finished look was very satin looking, just like its stated. I have looked into other products from Seche and the nail polish collection is amazing! They literally stock every colour you could imagine, and they are all so vibrant and eye-catching! I'm going to indulge in the new year, so watch out for some more reviews!! 
Full Size £9.95 for 14ml 

* I have not yet reviewed the Yin Yang Skincare Rich Skin Food as the samples I received were past their use by date, I am awaiting new samples and I will review them then
