I received my December GlossyBox yesterday and I was so excited to receive it after seeing lots of hype about it! I had no idea what would be in my box as I had stayed away from all of the spoilers but I was hoping for a nail polish and a facial cleanser and I was lucky enough to receive both! This month the GlossyBox is red which I love! Very Christmassy!

So here is what I received in my box and what I thought of the products.
Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lip Gloss £10 Full Size
I wasn't overly excited about receiving this product as I don't tend to use lip glosses very much as I prefer lipsticks. I also thought that the size was a little on the small side. I received the Powder Pink variation and I have to say I was surprised. The colour was vivid, I find a lot of glosses too clear. The texture was lovely and as described not sticky at all! I would probably not repurchase this product simply because I don't tend to wear gloss.
Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle Mini Nail Varnish with Stripper to Go Sachet £16 Full Size. £14 Pack of Six Removers
As a huge nail polish lover this was the product I was the most excited to use! I am loving glittery polishes right now and I was delighted to receive another one to add to my collection. I loved this polish, it did need two coats but it was very fast drying which I love! The polish looks great on and perfect for Christmas. I was also a fan of the stripper to go! It was unlike any nail polish remover I have ever used as it was a mini finger mit and leaves the finger tips smelling of lavender! I would purchase these products again, especially the polish as the range has so many beautiful colours to choose from.
FAB Face Cleanser Full Size £13
I loved the packaging of this product as I thought it looked so fun! Something which would attract me to the product if I was to see it in a store. It left my skin feeling clean and refreshed. The scent was very soapy, almost like a bar of soap, which didn't bother me too much but I would have preferred something that smelt a little nicer. I would purchase this product again.
Nouveau Lashes Noir Mascara Full Size £14.99
I was really surprised by this product and it was also a full sized sample too! I have very short stumpy lashes so mascara is an everyday beauty must for me and this mascara was great. It noticeably lengthened my lashes as well as gave them volume. It was also quick drying as promised. I would definitely repurchase this product.
Rituals Foaming Shower Gel
I was also really happy with this product and it was again a full sized product. Others have said they disliked the scent of this product but I personally really liked it. It smells very feminine and floral. A little really does go a long way so only a small amount needs to be used. I thought the texture was lovely too, and it left my skin feeling soft and smooth. The scent also lingered on my skin which is something a lot of shower gels don't seem to do. I will be repurchasing this product.
