Happy January! Here's this months Glossybox review.

This box is full of full sized 'Fresh Start Must Haves' (Must haves? We'll see)

NICKA K NEW YORK Colorluxe Powder Blush | Full Size - €8.95

This blush is a really pretty pink and I don't think I've used a loose powder blush before, so I'm really up for trying this. The packaging is nice, the top is faux metal, a pretty rose gold colour. There's also a mirror on top which I do think is a bit pointless as you can hardly see what you're doing through it. 

KUESHI NATURAL & PLEASANT COSMETICS Revitalizing Face Toner | Full Size - €10.70

I never really use toners, I think I only have one left in my skincare collection because I just can't be bothered to use them. However I know people do swear a toner does make a difference and I do feel willing to give this a go. I'm a big fan of natural products and the bottle is cute, although it reminds me of nail polish remover. I'll let you know if this products makes it to the major skincare routine.

MEMEME Eye Line Pencil in 'Clay' | Full Size - £4

I'm always looking to try new eye pencils and I like this 'clay' shade (basically a dark brown), sometimes black is too harsh so it's a nice alternative. MeMeMe claim this pencil is long lasting. They also claim it's extra soft and easy to glide but it felt kind of harsh when I first tested it, hmm.

NAKED LIPS Organic Lip Balm Superfruits | Full Size - €5

At first I was a little disappointed seeing this in my box, just because I have so may lip balms to suit every lip need I could ever have. But then I thought, this could be amazing as I have seen some really good reviews on this. Organic and natural products are kind of my fave. I really am looking forward to trying this out now. As you can tell from the name, this balm smells fruity and is apparently "packed full of oils from some of the worlds most anti-oxidant rich fruits" sounds good to me. The other Naked Lips lip balms look really good too, I really want to try them all!

JELLY PONG PONG All Over Glow | Full Size - £10

The packaging is super cute but I feel like this brand is always included in Glossyboxes which gets a little boring, I'm just not too sure about the brand and its products. However, this stuff is oil free, I love oil free-ness, so I'll give it a go.

Our pumpkins were still going strong (and still are right now) so I glittered them to make them a little more Christmassy :)

On Christmas Eve I used all three of these Lush products in my bath: Christmas Eve Bubble Bar, Cinders Bath Bomb and The Metling Snowman Bath Melt. Lovely :)
