I'm sorry, but what is it about January beauty boxes - why are they always such a let down? Apart from the Anatomicals Under Eye Patches (which are hardy luxury), and the tweezers, there isn't a full sized product in sight. It's hard to say which box a prefer - Birchbox has more interesting/high end brand choices yet they are all samples, whereas Glossybox has a few full sized products, but they are all from cheaper brands. The only upside to all of these samples is the fact that I'm moving to Madrid on Sunday for 6 months - and need all the luggage space I can get - so these will keep me going until I get the time to go shopping there. Highlights for me - Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash (great for travelling and a gorgeous body wash), the tweezers from The Vintage Cosmetics Company and the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (although I got this a few months back). Overall, I've been majorly underwhelmed by this month's offerings, and it's a shame because these are the last beauty boxes I will be getting for as while (as I suspended my subscriptions until I'm back in the country). I guess I'll just keep track of tthe boxes they bring out whilst I'm away and decide whether or not to reactive my subscriptions. Hasta la vista, beauty box.

  1. Yep, I'm with you. These boxes have been a let down recently and this was enough for me. I've cancelled Glossybox finally and Birchbox have one more month left (so I can collect my points and get my £10 in the shop lol) and then they're going too. I mean a 62p Vaseline moisturiser, really?! x

  3. Phillip Kingsley is one of my all-time favourite hair treatments, especially good when used as an excuse to sit in a steam room (it works much better with steam) ! Xx
