Glossy Box December, 2011

My second Glossy Box arrived today, finally. There's been a lot of confusion with the shipping this month but, although I was very frustrated, the customer service I received was exceptional. My previous Glossy Box post (posted in December due to more postage issues) for the November box  explains all you need to know, as well as the price and where you subscribe.

So anyway, let's get into it!
Again I'm in love with the packaging. The boxes are so pretty and are reusable. Who can say no to that? 

The box contains a card that details the products included (including an overview and the recommended retail price) as well as an introduction to the box. This month's box has a focus on haircare, as stated in the information card.

I only received this box today so I'm unable to review the product. Instead, I'll type out the information provided to me so you're able to get some insight into them.
 TIGI Haircare Manipulator by Bed Head - RRP $23.95 for 57mL
This box contained a full sized tub of this product. 
"Great for any length hair, this best texturiser adds volume and hold to make hair come alive."
This product sounds good but I'm not sure if it'll be appropriate for my hair, regardless of what it says about length. It sounds promising though so we'll see.
Gorgeous Lip Pencil in Entourage - RRP $25 per pencil
This box contained a full sized lip pencil.
"Keep your lipstick in check with this rich pigment lip pencil that glides on smoothly to prevent lipstick from bleeding, feathering and fading." 
The colour of this lip pencil is nice, but very dark. I'm not sure if it's me but, if not, I'll try and pass it on to someone who'll appreciate it more than me.
Calvin Klein Hidden Euphoria - RRP $60 for 30mL/
$90 for 50mL/$120 for 100mL
This box contained two 1.5mL samples of this perfume.
"Brand new younger scent that offers a contemporary, tantalising aroma of fruits, floral bouquets, with a touch of musk and woods. (eau de parfum)
Front what I can tell, I quite like this perfume but I'm not sure if I could see it as being my new everyday scent. 
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless
Finishing Crème - RRP $16.99 for 113g
This box contained a 30mL sample tube.
"Restore silky-softness to your hair with this finishing crème that helps hair imperfections and controls fly-aways for flawless locks."
My hair is a frizz ball so I can't wait to try this out!
AUSCREEN Sunscreen Lotion - RRP $7.49 for 125mL/$10.49 for 250mL/$13.99 for 500mL/$20.99 for 1L
This box contained a 15mL sample of this product. 
"Protect your skin from the sun with this non-white, non-greasy sunscreen offering 30 times your skins natural protection and water resistance."
This product is definitely non greasy. I applied it to my arm earlier today and it absorbed quickly, leaving no disgusting residue behind. During summer, this will definitely become a handbag staple.


So ladies, that was December's Glossy Box. Click here for Lust Have It's! December Box, here for Glossy Box's November box and here for Lust Have It's November box. On a whole, I'm fairly happy with the contents of my December Glossy Box. Other subscribers received a Sally Hansen nail polish and/or a Clinique night cream. I was hoping I'd receive the night cream but oh well, that's what I get for being impatient and looking at the contents online.

Please comment below and let me know what your favourite product from the box is, especially if you've tried some of them.

Always look your best,
Sophie
