Glossybox Festive Treasures December christmas 2013 UK

Glossybox Festive Treasures December 2013 


Today I Finally received My Long awaited Glossybox.

I received my Dispatch email last week December Friday 13th. I normally get my box the next day always, but on this occasion it came 18th December 2013 few days  later because of this lateness i knew what we would be receiving so i kinda knew what to expect.


This months theme is Christmas Festive Treasures. With a lovely RED Box, which is in a matte finish, with white christmas tree shaped out from makeup. I really love the box design, Glossybox did go out their way this month on presentation 😀

Inside the Box we had red Candy cane Design with green shredded protective paper. All wrapped with a white ribbon.


So this Month i was really pleased with what i got, the box felt really heavy and this is what i like 🙂

Alot of other monthly Subscribers wernt to pleased with their boxes this month due to one canny item, (A Razor) But to be completely honest i was rather happy Love trying different shavers out there so cant wait to try it.


This month i got….

* BEAUTIFUL MOVEMENTS COSMETICS   Nude Lip Gloss 4ml.   Full Size is 8ml £12

* WILKINSON SWORD INTUITION Razor Received full Size £6.49

* MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Colour Tattoo 24hr Eye Shadow In Colour 65 Pink Gold Received Full Size £4.99

* SECHE Nail Lacquer Received Full Size 14ml  £9.95 Colour Lilac (not easily swept away)

* SANCTUARY SPA Active Reverse Resurface & Refine Ultra Polish For (chicken skin) Received a sample size 15ml . Full Size is 200ml £12

Lovely box this month very pleased. Would of preferred maybe a different nail Polish colour, Maybe more festive one? Glitter/Red/White, but other than that it was a right treat this month.

Also the delivery took forever! This was the only downfall this month 😦 Where is says order generated on your tracking,  i found this out it doesn’t literally mean your box has been sent( dispatched), it means your order label has been printed and its in the mist of being prepared. then ready for passing onto hermes Delivery people later on. It means its still with Glossybox 😦 Boo

Well… till then, see you next time, for my January Glossybox box in 2014.  I wonder what we’ll get for the start to the new year in our next box ehh 🙂

Thanks for looking Loves!

please share what you got this month in the comment bar below!

Birchbox Winter Wonderland December 2013 UK



Today i received my Birchbox, on Decmeber Friday 13th 2013.

Many other people got theirs a day before mine but it was worth the wait! 😀

This months theme is ”WINTER WONDERLAND”

The Box was presented a little different this time, rather than just a plain cardboard box with the words Birchbox written. Instead this month was a festive versions which looks like zig zags but could be christmas trees. Anyway i Loved it.

As always you get your little stack of cards with lots of info on them for this months agenda.

This month i got….


This month i got….

*  NUMBER 4   Non Aerosol Hair Spray .   Received a sample size of 43ml Full size is £18.50 but doesn’t tell you what ml it is on the card.

* NAIL ROCK ”VELVET” Received full Size £6.99    ( I went to my local Tk Maxx today and saw these for £2.99 the exact same ones )

* TWISTBAND  Chic Hair Tie,  Pack of 10 is £10 I Received 1 On Card. In Colour Green

*  JANE IREDALE  Cheek & Lip Tint Stain. in colour ”JUST KISSED” Received a ever So Miniature Size Sample but its cute! Full size is £20.95

This month 1000 new subscribers to BIRCHBOX  got the chance to receive  a free Handmade Bracelet from a new Jewellery company called Baublebar

For exsiting customers we got a $20 Gift voucher to use on their website But as delivery is $20 then on top of that Tax and duty fees that will need to be paid so i really don’t understand this free voucher thingy! not so free after all this is the only downside to this months box. But apparently BIRCHBOX is working with the company to find a resolution to this slight little problem.

Overall im very pleased with this months box, Yeah some things could of been a bit bigger but, with the packaging, the presentation and the overall goodies its defiantly worth £10.00 that i paid for. well i think so anyway.

Please let me know what you guys got and what your thoughts are on this months box. which is the last box for 2013.

Thanks for reading Loves!
