january glossybox 'valentine edition'.

This months box is another limited edition box which i love because it is bright pink *yayayayay* and if you haven't guessed by the title, makes it the valentine' box and is all about pampering yourself. I love the idea of the little love heart sticker instead of the glossybox logo too:--) i haven't actually tried all the products out yet but i'm going to tell you my first thoughts anyway.
murad skin perfecting primer £29.00
eyeko skinny eyeliner £9.50
First i'll start with what glossybox have to say about the murad skin perfecting primer 'oil-free primer ignites a radiant glow, powered by light-enhancing minerals.'
I actually haven't had a chance to use this yet (if you would like i will do a further review on any of these products, just comment below) it says that it is a dewy finish which i like the look of on my skin, you can where it on its own because it has a slight tint to it unlike most primers which are clear. I think i will try it out with just a bit of powder over the top first because i don't tend to were foundation just a tinted moisturizer or a bb-cream will do me fine so it should be enough coverage for me but if you are used to a medium-full coverage then i'd recommend wearing it under foundation.

Now what glossybox has to say about the eyeko skinny eyeliner 'get a handle on your eyeliner for precise definition and intense colour with a long-lasting finish.'
Its in the shade 'plum' which is a lovely dark browny purple and looks really nice on the bottom lash line, its highly pigmented and really easy to apply. I'm unsure that the long handle actually makes it better and easier to apply than it claims and to be honest just makes it more awkward and harder to store (well in my storage).

weleda one step cleanser&toner £9.95
FAB gentle body wash £13.00
I haven't actually tried either of these yet but this is what glossybox has to say about the weleda one step cleanser&toner 'Weleda One-Step Cleanser and Toner is a handy two-in-one pack ideal for traveling.'
That's what i'll probably use it for traveling because its only small 10ml and looks quite a milky runny consistency so i'm unsure how i'm going to apply it without getting it anywhere, but hopefully it will be fine.

What glossybox says about the FAB gentle body wash 'a moisturizing, irritant-free everyday cleanser ideal for even the most sensitive skin' 
I haven't used it yet so can't say how its feels on my skin just what it says but it doesn't have a nice flowery scent which is what i like in shower gels but it doesn't really smell of anything else so i don't mind. I might even try it as a face cleanser because it say its used to cleanse, calm redness and relieve dry skin which seems like would be could as a face cleanser.

orly nail lacquer in ruby £6.95

Last product in this months glossybox was this orly nail polish this is what glossybox has to say 'orly, the top californain brand, offers and infinite range of colors.'
Well if i'm honest i never go out and buy myself any other polish than Barry M or OPI because i'm a bit 'OCD' about things like that and like then to be all the same brand (the same with my makeup brushed and lipstick etc..) but i have a draw with a few random ones that i have received with glossy box and this is a lovely darkish red colour, perfect for this time of year.
Just had to include this really cute little sweet which even says glossybox on it:--)

Overall i really like this months box and feel i will get a lot of use out of all the products, if anyone would like a further review on any of these products once i've had chance to test them out a bit more then just comment below.
