Glossybox January 2015 Initial Review


1 month ago I signed myself up to Glossybox. I thought it wouldn't be worth £10 but I was pleasantly surprised. The products that come in the box are worth around £30 and you get 5 full sized products. I've seen and hears a lot about Glossybox from reading other blogs and I've watched many unboxing videos on youtube.
I am very impressed so far as it lets me try out new products that I wouldn't go for on my own. It's a great way to try new brands without making a huge investment right away.

This box contains:
MeMeMe Eye Line Pencil in Clay: It's really long lasting and super soft so it doesn't irritate my eyes when I apply it. Brown liners tend to look less harsh than black in the waterline and it only costs £4 so it wont break the bank. I don't know how long I will keep this for.

Nicka K New York Colourluxe Powder Blush: The whole pint of this product is to have a lose powder blush without the mess. It does tick those boxes however I didn't like this product. The colour payoff wasn't great. Maybe because I am used to sleek's blushers but this product didn't really impress me at all. I liked the idea just not the execution.

Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow: I had very high hopes for this product because it's oil free. It should have in theory been perfect for me and my problematic skin but I found it to look too glittery on my cheek bones so my hunt for the perfect highlighter continues. I think this product would work well with lighter skin tones so it is worth a try and at £10 its not too pricey at all.

Keushi Natural & Pleasant Cosmetics Revitalizing Toner: This was the stand out product for me which I wasn't expecting because it is on the cheaper side but it has been working wonders for my skin. I might actually replace my nivea toner with this in the long run. It really soothes my skin and it doesn't make my face feel dry at all.

Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm Superfruits : First of all this lip balm is the tastiest lip balm I have ever used. It's not waxy at all and because it's 100% chemical free I feel like it is healthier for my lips. I use it after buffing my lips to get rid of any dead skin cells and applying this on the top.

I was impressed with a few of the products in the January 2015 glossybox. I'd love to know what you guys thought of it ?
