Glossybox unboxing January 2014

Hello everyone!

Hope you are well :) My Glossybox has literally been delivered around an hour ago so I have taken photos whilst it is still light. I'm so glad it was delivered before we move house! Phew!

Glossybox has had a little make over for the New Year and I have to say the box itself is absolutely gorgeous. It's a gorgeous pink colour and one of those where I'm going to keep and use it to store items in.
The ribbon inside now has the Glossybox logo on it and the sticker matches the pink and black colour scheme. This box without doubt is the most luxurious looking in my opinion.

The theme of the box is 'Back to basics' to get you all refreshed to start the year all prepped.

Here's what I received in my box this month.


My camera is not picking up on the true colour of the box here as it is a really gorgeous candy pink.


The box looks pure luxury as the finishing details are gorgeous.


I like how the lid has the logo design repeatedly printed on it too. The box also arrives with the Glossy mini mag and a card which tells you product details and the prices of each item.


Here are all of the items that I received in my box this month.


First up is the Anatomicals -Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer- Wake-Up Under Eye Patches which cost £6 for a 3 pack. 
I love the Anatomicals brand as they are fun, highly witty and quirky. I love receiving their products and I seem to always have eye bags these days so these will be useful to slay them!


Balance Me- Super Toning Body Wash. 250ml would cost £10.25 and I received a 50ml sample. I have used this before and it's a great brand. You can use this in the shower or use a capful in the bath to soak in.
It contains a blend of juniper, bergamot, geranium and lavender essential oils.
I do like this brand but I think it's more suited to my mum. She would love this whereas I prefer pink glittery ones like Snow Fairy or Chocomania from The Body Shop. I'm not really one for natural smelling products even though they will be a lot better for me I'm just not drawn to them.


Vaseline- Essential Moisture Lotion £4.99 for 400ml and I received a sample. I do like moisturisers and use them daily. I'm just not excited about this product though. I got four body butters from The Body Shop for Christmas and I have the Laura Mercier Vanilla too so this is alright for popping in a travel bag.


Yu-Be- Moisturising Skin Cream- Full sized would cost £13.50 for 33g. This is from Japan and has multi-uses. I love Japanese products so much but I'm usually a sucker for packaging and this is plain. I already own this product as I received it in another beauty box.


Finally I received these floral slanted tweezers from The Vintage Cosmetic Company. These cost £8 and are super pretty. The tweezers would look perfect on my dressing table <3

I'm sad that they no longer do the Miss Glossy box as that was more suited to me. It was colourful, cheaper and had more make up in it. This month I didn't receive any make up in this box which is disappointing and there's nothing inside that makes me think oh wow I love this :(

My favourite items this month are the Anatomicals and the tweezers and the rest I can take or leave.
I really hope that the February box contains pink lipstick, nail polish, chocolates and a mascara as I much prefer make-up items.

Did you get the same as me this month? What do you think?
