Glossybox January Edit

This months Glossybox was a Valentines themed box and I was impressed before I even opened the box, as it was a gorgeous hot pink colour! I hope the different coloured boxes continue as I hate pastel pinks! Maybe a green box full of natural products?
I received a good mix of products and I don't feel like it leant too much on one type of product, I know some people received Clarins samples, but I’m glad I didn't because I probably wouldn’t have got much use out of them.
Here’s what I received in my box:
EYEKO Skinny Eyeliner in Emerald Green
This is a really gorgeous colour, and it’s quite a true emerald, quite a unique shade (I find most green liners are either too yellow, or to teal) It has a lovely texture and I can see myself using this on my lower lash line. Although I have to complain about the deceiving packaging, the silver end makes it look like it contains a lot more product than it does, and it won’t fit in my make up bag!
ORLY Nail Laquer in Rage
A lovely blood red shade. I’ve not tried Orly polishes before so I really look forward to trying this out, keep your eyes peeled for a NOTD!
WELEDA One Step Cleanser and Toner
I get up at 4.30 am most mornings, and if I oversleep (like I did today) I don’t have time to have a proper cleanse and tone, so I reached for this and it’s a nice product, I used it on a cotton pad, and it left my skin feeling clean refreshed and ready for make up. It also has a lovely fresh scent.
FAB Gentle Body Wash
I haven’t used this yet but I can see myself reaching for this when my skins feeling a little sensitive as its fragrance free. The texture is like somewhere between a cream and a gel.
MURAD Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer – Dewy Finish
The star of the box for me, I put this on before my make up this morning (at about 4.30am) it feels really light weight on the skin and imparts a gorgeous and believable dewy sheen. And it definitely makes your foundation last longer, its been 13 hours now and my foundation doesn’t look perfect but I haven’t felt the need to touch up, which is almost unheard of for me! I’ll definitely be repurchasing this. It is tinted but it blends out on my NW15 skin and doesn’t really leave any colour to the skin.
For me this was a great box, I’ll be using everything that I received and will be keeping my subscription!
