GlossyBox January 2013

My January Glossybox has literally just landed in my doorstep (thank-you for the wake up call Mr. postman!) so I thought I'd show you the contents quickly before I run out door to stumble about in the snow on the way to lectures.

The theme is a 'January Detox' for the post festive period, with products aiming to 'stimulate your senses...while rejuvenating your spirit for a replenished new you'. Sounds like a good promise!


I received:

  • Paul Mitchell Super Strong Daily Conditioner - 100ml
  • Elemis Exfoliating Face Wash - 30ml
  • Monu Warming Aromatic Mask - 30ml
  • Duck Island Limited Body Lotion - 30ml
  • Jason Lips Bee Healthier - 4.5g
  • Added extra - Glossybox sleep mask

I'm excited to try the Monu mask, I've never used a warming product before so that'll be interesting to see how it works. Also the Duck Island body lotion smells amazing, fragrance with bergamot and mandarin, and is incredibly rich and moisturising. I've used some on my hands which are now superbly soft, great for this snowy day!

The one product I'm not so keen on as yet is the lip balm, I've never heard of 'Jason' but the new Glossybox magazine style leaflet promises wholesome, natural ingredients to prevent parched lips so perhaps I'll give it a longer test run. I'm also slightly annoyed that I've only got a Paul Mitchell conditioner..I might have to source the shampoo because I like my shampoo an conditioner to be a matching team!

But overall a pretty good box, and I will definitely be putting that sleeping mask to the test!

  2. I need my shampoo and conditioner to match too!
    And I always run out of conditioner first do have loads of unfinished shampoos :)

    I've heard lots of good things about Jason as a brand so I'm sure your lip balm will be great - fingers crossed!

    1. I do love it when they add in makeup, but I'm just so glad that there's not a perfume sample!

  5. I got the Jason lip balm in my Joliebox a couple of months ago... I was like what the? Butttt it's really good, and makes my lips so smooth!
    I love the sound of the Paul Mitchell product though!
