... No nails today - showing the December Glossybox! ...

For months I've been seeing all the US girls post about Birchboxes and other equivalents and desperately wanted to have a sample box of my own to love [or whinge about if it wasn't up to scratch] and finally I've gotten one! Hurrah!!

This is Glossybox which apparently used to be called "Beautybox" but for $14.95 they'll send out 5 products to test out and try to your doorstep in the latter half of each month. This is my first month and I figured it was getting lost in the Christmas mail but found it outside under the carport - who knows when they delivered it as there wasn't a note in the letterbox - oh well.
Firstly here is my box all wrapped up - oooh pretty!
Under the lid! Excitement.
And here is my list of products. Without looking much further I'm happy as this has paid for itself just with the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Base and Top Coat which is over $15 in price - score!!
So all in all was it worth it - well it gets a big yes from me. Total value that I worked out was $71.41! Wow! 3 of the products were full size which is an added bonus.

** Cost Breakdown**
Gorgeous Lip Pencil = $25 [full size]
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Diamond Shine Base and Top Coat = $16.45 [full size]
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme =  $16.99/113g [sample 30ml = $4.51]
Tigi Haircare Manipulator by Bed Head = $23.95 [full size]
Auscreen Sunscreen = $7.49/125ml [sample 15ml = $1.50]

So incase you want to jump on board the link is - they do have a referral program but I can't for the life of me work out how to give out a link other than email [although if you would really like me to "refer" you then hit the email link on the right and I'm sure I can send out their standard email for you!]


  1. This sounds fun. I'm gonna join up. I'll email you so you can get them referral points.

  2. Tagged you for a couple of awards! <3

  3. My box apparently got "lost" so I still don't have it. Thanks for showing me what I have to look forward to.

  4. This looks so good! I'd be worried about getting a box with nothing inside that I liked though :/

  5. I tried Lust Have It Box and also Bella Box. I chose those two after reading heaps of reviews and something about you HAVE to review the glossy box stuff or they take you off the list. PLus I loved the brands in the other boxes better and previous boxes. I got an Ozotic nail polish (elytra) in my December Bella Box! If I had to pick one it would be Bella Box.

  6. Thanks @Kira ... I'll have to have look into them - especially Bella Box :) I used to hoard samples ... I can see this easily happening again *rubs hands together greedily*


Thanks for the comments - they always make me feel loved :)
