JANUARY AND FEBRUARY GLOSSYBOX!

Hey girls,
I wanted to share with you all what I received in my January and February GLOSSYBOX! As you probably already know, GLOSSYBOX is a monthly subscription box where you pay just $14.95 a month to have 5 luxury travel size beauty products delivered to your door! Now I'm not just talking to the Australians here as GLOSSYBOX is available in 18 different countries so take a look at their website to see if you can get your hands on this box, chances are that you probably can! Now onto what I recieved in my January box..
First thing I noticed when I eagerly tore open the box was the Aussie looking temporary tattoos. They were added because Australia Day is in January and I thought it was such a cute touch to add them! As you can tell from the little overview this was an awesome box!
As usual, the box came with a handy little card to help walk you through all of the goodies included for this month. This month was packed with goodies to make your outer beauty glow consisting of moisturisers for your face and body as well as lip and nail products.
Sheer Cover Lip Gloss (Valued at $19.95)
A full sized item is always great to see and any lip products are guaranteed to get me excited! This is something perfect to throw into your purse to have on the go to add a bit of shine and moisture to your lips. Something to think about is that this one product alone is valued at more than the box costs, making GLOSSYBOX great value!
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color (Valued at $13.95)
I was so happy this was included in the January box because I have been wanting to try out this Sally Hansen range for a while now and what made me even happier is that it was in a neutral baby pink shade which is my most worn colour due to my school dress code.
Sheer Cover Nourishing Moisturizer (Valued at $29.95 for 60ml)
Considering the full sized bottle of this is 60ml and the sample received is 30ml, I think it's safe to say that this is definitely a luxury sample sized item! From the same brand as the lip gloss, I can't wait to try this out!
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (Valued at $105 for 30ml or $150 for 50ml)
Great to see an Estee Lauder product in here as I'm a huge fan of the brand! This is a really prestigious and pricey anti-aging product so I'm really impressed that this was included in the January box.
Nivea Rich Nourishing Body Moisturizer (Valued at $5.40 for 250ml or $7.99 for 400ml)
Always great to have a could sample sized moisturizers to throw in your purse, have at your work desk or to bring when traveling.

Let's take a look at what was in the February GLOSSYBOX...
Totally Valentines Day themed, pink box and all! GLOSSYBOX went all out on the February box, celebrating the holiday of love with so many cute touches including a pink love heart sticker, pink and white shredded paper, hot pink mailer and reusable box!
Even the card was themed with cute love hearts! It's easy to tell that so much effort went into making the February box themed and perfect for Valentines Day!
Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm (Valued at $8.99)
A full sized product and from a well credited lip care brand, probably my favourite item in this months box!
Proactive Deep Cleansing Wash (Valued at $39.95 for 475ml)
A generous sized sample of a great face wash I have heard so many good things about! I have tried proactive in the past and from what I recall the products worked well but were expensive so it's great to get such a good amount of product to try out.

Star and Rose Emergency Nail Files
I have lost count over the amount of times I have been rummaging in my bag, praying for a nail file. It is the most annoying feeling to have a hang nail or not be able to save a nail that has a a bit of a tear in it so I can tell that these are perfect little life savers for those situations.
Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil with Rosehip (Valued at $9.99 for 60ml or $17.99 for 150ml)
To me this looks very similar to Bio Oil and I'm a huge fan of Palmer's skin care so I'm excited to try out this new product.
Face of Australia Mineral Lip Shine (Valued at $12.95)
I think it's really impressive to receive a FOA product in this box because this is something I would usually go out and buy. The quality and selection is always amazing with FOA and I was very impressed with this lipstick.

Lastly, some adorable love heart candy was included, I think it's great to add something sweet like this and it adds a bit of fun to the box.

In my opinion, GLOSSYBOX is my favourite monthly subscription service as I am continually impressed in their selection of products each month, introducing a diverse range of brands and beauty items. I will continue to be excited every month anticipating what will be in my box.
