November 2012 GlossyBox.

November 2012 GlossyBox♦ (£12.95)
I can't believe that another month has come and gone & it's GlossyBox♦ time again. I've seen a couple of different versions of this month's box and they all look lovely. I'm especially excited for the December box, I hoping it'll be red and pretty like last year! This month's theme is stocking fillers, aiming to give you a few gift ideas for your nearest and dearest!

Last month I received a sample of the Dr Jart+ Premium BB cream and I absolutely adore it, I think it really deserves all the hype it's been getting recently. I had also seen some reviews of the Dr Jart+ Water Fuse BB Cream and I loved the sound of it so I'm thrilled to be able to try it in this month's box! From what I've read I think I might like it more than the Premium version, but we shall see! The full 50ml tube is £18 which I think is really reasonable.

The second product is the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and it's something that really intrigues me. I've never really seen anything similar before, it's a powder that you shake into wet hands, rub into a paste and massage over your face. It's gentle enough to use on a daily basis, I've already tried this once and I have to say, it feels really nice. There's not much of a scent to it which is nice and it left my skin feeling super soft. The full size is £38.50 so it's pretty pricey, I think it'll have to do something amazing for my skin before I invested that much money in one product. 

Okay, so generally I'm not a fan of perfume samples. I still really hate the tiny vials that have one squirt in them but this sample of Burberry Body is actually a tiny version of the full sized bottle which I think is adorable & you get a really good amount of fragrance inside. I've been wanting to try this for a little while but I just kept forgetting every time I went instore and I think I've been missing out for a long time! It's quite a different scent to ones I usually go for but it does have that rose note which I adore. It lasts for such a long time on the skin so although the full size 85ml is expensive at £75, a little goes a long way!

This teeny tiny Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat is so adorable, it's one of the smallest bottles of nail polish I've ever seen and miniatures are always so sweet! I've never tried this top coat before and I don't think I've ever really read very much about it but I'm looking forward to giving it a go once I've grown my nails back! The full size is £11.

Finally, the last product is from Allison Claire Remarkable Bio-Natural Beauty and it's their Mango Body Butter. This smells absolutely amazing, it's exactly like mangoes and super fresh. This is a very typical summer scent but I'll happily use this all year round. It isn't tested on animals and is made from 70% organic ingredients which I think is great. It doesn't feel too thick but it's definitely lovely & hydrating. The full size 200ml is £15.

  6. It looks like a great one this month- I had it for about six months and then stopped but I do find myself lusting after the recent products, maybe I will have to start it up again!
