Its not very often that I get two Glossy Boxes in one month but due to the Christmas Holiday my December box got delayed in shipping and I only got it late into January. Thankfully the January box came just in time for January.
I didn’t get to see any spoilers so this box was pretty much a surprise to me. So lets get into the box shall we.
As you can see we are back to our normal box and I love the box. All my previous boxes have come in handy for storing things in them. They are sturdy to be reused.
The first item I saw in the box was this Wella Professionals Brilliance Leave-In Mousse. I have never tried this before and I am a little curious about it. Looking forward to trying this out in February. This is a full size product and its SRV is $17.99 for 190g
This is something that is new to me but I have heard of the brand before, its the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. This is perfect if you want to have a fuller pout without the injections. I don’t know what size this is but if you were to purchase a full size it would be $28.00 for 0.2oz
I actually liked the smell of it and can’t quite place what it is and I did notice like a tingling and then a burning sensation happen. I actually noticed that within a few seconds it felt itchy. Within about 5 minutes it went away and I have to admit that I didn’t notice a fuller pout and the only thing I noticed with redder lips. I don’t think I would purchase this.
Yes you are seeing that right, its another Burt’s Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion. This is the same thing that I got in my Glymm bag this month. I have to admit that I prefer getting it like this then the little sample we got in Glymm. I honestly think that Glymm could have sent a size like this but aways that’s a whole other rant.
This is a sample of 25g and the full size is 170g for $12.99 I have never used a Burt’s Bee lotion before so I am excited to try it out. If its anything like their lip glosses then I am sure I will love it.
This is actually the Glossy Box best in moisture item and I know some people complained about what they got and I have to say that I am really pleased and happy that I got this. I have gotten this in previous boxes and loved it. Its the perfect size to shove in a make up bag or your purse and it seems like just as I am about to run out I get another sample size.
Another item that caused an uproar is the Nivea Essential Lip Care. I haven’t opened this yet just because I am currently using up a Nivea lip balm that I recently bought because of my dry lips. I like Nivea and I find that it does nourish my dry lips. This is s full size item 4.8g for $2
This is a bonus item and its the Beauty So Clean cosmetic Sanitizing Wipes. They sent me 12 sample wipes. Now this is one of those things that I have gotten so many off and that I don’t really use since I don’t share my make up and I really wish that they would stop sending them out. The full size is a 48 pack for $12.50
So that was my Glossy Box for January and I have to admit its not an overall favorite of mine but I do like what they sent apart from those wipes. What do you think of the box this month?
I am curious to see what February will bring since its their first year anniversary and I have been with them since day one.
The only thing that disappoints me is that they are going to reward the subscribers with the highest glossydots a special deluxe item. I really think that if they are going to do that they should at least send a little something to the subscribers who have been with them since day 1. What do you think of that?

I totally agree, it was very underwhelming but I am also optimistic the February box will make up for it. This is their last chance for me and a lot of other subscribers to step it up!
My relation with Glossy was a bit weird from the start..I suscribed at the beginning of January..they said they would send me december box which I saw on the net and which was exciting to me being the first beauty box I was ordering. Two days later, after I spoke to my mom about it I decided to order a gift box for her. A week later, they charged me for my January box, but I had not gotten my december box BUT my mother had already got her gift box ( which was a december box in fact). So I wrote to them and they didn’t understand what I was inquiring about ( where is my december box?) so they cancelled my box and gave me my money back, plus they refounded me for another box…(which I guess was my gift box to my mom..) so in the end the fist box I got for myself was the January box after getting my mom’s box for free hahaha
I really like the Wella hair product. It’s not a new company to me but this product was. I liked the smell of it and it really made my hair shiny. I got the Curel hand cream and cuticule as the moisturizing item. I was happy at first to get that as I really needed a hand cream but I was disapointed when I saw what other people got instead of curel. It seems a lot of other product were given instead of Curel and they were all upmarket stuff.
I don’t know if this is because I am new to all these beauty boxes but I feel like I don’t get the best stuff/products /bonuses in my box like other people. Who knows?
