December Birchbox VS Christmas Glossybox 2013

Yes that's right an extremely late Christmas beauty box comparison. The first one that arrived on my door step along with half the streets post was Birchbox and recently my favourite of the two. 

Nail Rock Velvet Manicure in Navy

I can't say I've ever tried one of these sets and feel a tutorial brewing for you or even a tutorial for me!! The box says to apply two coats of polish, dip the nail into the velvet and leave to dry for 15-20 minutes. I feel an accent nail would look nice with the effect rather than a full hand.  
Full size £6.99 (Full size received)

Naobay Moisturising Milk Cleanser 
After finding a love for Superdrug's hot cloth cleanser, I have been hoping to try out a few more different ones. 
Full size £12.95 (50ml received)

Bee kind Body Lotion 
This lotion smells like Lemon meringue and I still haven't decided whether this is a positive or a negative. It is quite a light formula which spread's easily. 
Full size £12.95 (30ml received) 

N4 Non Aerosol Hair Spray
I love the idea of this spray and so far I have only lightly tested it. Look out for a full review.
Full size £18.50(43ml received)

Alima Shimmer Eyeshadow 
First impressions- MESSY!!
Full size £12.50

Lipsy Glam Eau De Toilette 
A mature scent practical for evening.
Full size £18.00(2ml received)

Twist Band in Cream
I wear these bands daily to drag my hair out of my face. Slightly thinner than my usual ones but would be great for fine haired goddess's.
£10.00 for 6 (1x band received)

Overall a good selection of products none of these particularly scream Christmas to me but I will enjoy using/trying all of them. 3/5

Glossybox have really made an effort with their packaging for Christmas. A deep red box with sketched beauty items in the shape of a Christmas tree. Inside the usual tissue paper is embossed with candy canes and tied with a white ribbon. 

Beautiful Movements Nude Lip Gloss
Nice little lipgloss to throw into your handbag.
Full size £12 for 8ml (4ml received) 

Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals Razor
I love these razors. I have quite sensitive skin and the Naturals Razor is one of very few to not bring me out in a shaving rash.
Full size £6.49 (full size received) 

Maybelline Color Tattoo in shade 35 on and on bronze
I feel one of the best products to be released in 2013. Maybelline really came up trumps with these gel formulated eyeshadows. If you don't own one go get one.
Full size £4.99 (full size received) 

Seche Nail Polish in shade Not easily swept away
I've never tried a polish from this brand but have always been tempted by them. 
Full size £9.95 (full size received) 

Sanctuary Spa Reverse Resurface & Refine Ultra Polish
Nice little scrub sample by the ever popular Sanctuary Spa.
Full size £12 for 200ml (15ml received) 

Once again not very Christmassy related but a nice selection of products from the high street, that I know I will get lots of use from. Again 3/5 for me.

I'm still trying to decide which subscription to cancel. Which box do you love?

  1. I loved the Bee Kind moisturiser so summery, the eyeshadow I agree was very messy! I was very impressed with the nail rock polish but the velvet affect isn't messy is easy to apply I did an accent nail, but I have to day furry nails just ain't my think not for me at all haha x


Please leave your comments for me to read and either smile or cry over. I appreciate them all :D
