Here's a quickish roundup of the January Birchbox, Glossybox & My Little Box. It's quite interesting to see them all side by side & I'd love to know which is your favourite, or if you subscribe to any other boxes that were particularly good this month.

Birchbox - Women's Health Edition*
- Philip Kingsley Body Building Conditioner
- REN Radiance Renewal Mask
- Activbod Cooling Finish Lotion
- Heal Gel Intensive
- Stila Lip Glaze
- Matcha Green Tea
- Women's Health Exercise Band
The green tea was surprisingly good and I haven't used the exercise band yet for fear of it shooting across the room and knocking something over! The Stila lip gloss was a little disappointing, I'm not a fan of the super sticky formula, but it was nice to try & it's a full size too!

Glossybox Fresh Start Edition*
- Hello Fresh Voucher
- MeMeMe Eye Liner Pencil
- Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm
- Kueshi Natural Revitalizing Face Toner
- Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow
- Nicka K Powder Blush
Toner isn't something I use all the time, but I've been giving this one a good trial over the past week or so and I'm surprised by how much I like it. It's very calming. And my favourite thing in the box is the powder blush. It's a loose powder with a powder puff applicator so there's none of the mess of a usual loose powder product. The lid also does easily screw off so you can get a blush brush in there if you prefer.

My Little Energy Box*
- Happy New Year Print
- My Little World Magazine
- 2015 Calendar
- Good Energy Gym Bag
- Nails Inc Nail Polish
- Talika Moisturiser
- My Little Box Face Spray
It's still not a bad box though, and they're on to a good thing if even their not-so-impressive offerings are still so well thought out and presented.

I think Glossybox just manages to come out on top for me this month (when they get it right they get it very right), with Birchbox a very close second.
