December 2012 Glossybox

My Glossybox was delivered on Dec 27th but I was away and just picked it up today. I was going to wait until I got back to work on Wednesday but I saw a sneak peak and decided to brave the sub zero temps and drive downtown to my office to pick it up. Brrr it was (((COLD))).

The December Edition was a collaboration with LouLou Magazine. LouLou is a Canadian magazine that focuses on beauty, beauty products, fashion and shopping.

The actual box was silver instead of the Glossybox pink. Me likey the colour. And it was jammed packed  :-D  The accompanying card was from LouLou wishing us a Happy New Year and included tips from the LouLou team for each product. The card also indicated that there was another Golden Ticket item for 50 subscription boxes, a Nobia statement necklace. Again I was denied! LOL Oh well ‘dems da breaks... 

Okay then, let’s see what is in this month’s Glossybox J

December 2012 Glossybox

The rundown:

Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer and Ultra Calming Moisturizer
Aveeno Ultra Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF30   - full size 
Full size: 75ml/$22.99
The card stated that we would get either the Positively Ageless Day SPF30 or the Ultra Calming. I like Aveeno products. I received the full sized Positively Radiant Moisturizer a while back and just recently finished it. I already bought a new one LOL but I will try the Ultra Calming.  My recent cold and weather have severely dehydrated my skin, which makes it prone to irritations. So this moisturizer will be used!  

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (light to medium) SPF30   - full size 
Full size: 75ml/$22.99
I did not even know that Aveeno had a tinted moisturizer! Whaaa??  Where have I been? It had to have been beside the regular moisturizer? How did I miss it? I will be trying this out pronto.

Revlon Nail Enamel and Avon Glazewear
Avon Glazewear Extreme Lip Gloss in Pale Pink Shine - full size 
Full size: $7.99
I have had several Glazewear lip glosses and they were alright  so I appreciate the new addition to my ‘collection’...   I personally don’t like Avon eyeshadow but they do have other great makeup items. For instance, we received a Mark lip stain last summer and I loved it so much I ordered another of the same colour. It was on sale so I had to... hehe.  

Revlon Nail Enamel – Raisin Rage - full size 
Full size: 15ml/ $5.99
This is a pretty colour for winter. I don’t think it is really ‘raisin’ but more of a maroon – leaning more towards a deep red.   

Tresemme Dry Shampoo and Split Remedy
Tresemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo- deluxe sample 
Full size: 161g/$5.99
I usually don’t use dry shampoos as my hair doesn’t get overly oily in between shampoos. I might try this out just to see what’s what ;) But it is a good sized sample.

Tresemme Split Remedy Sachet – sample 
Full size: 700ml/$5.99
I am sort of excited to try this out. It is supposed to bind up to 80% of split ends. I hope it works because I get splits like crazy. Stoopid frizzy head!  My hair is in desperate need right now! To bad it is only one sachet but if it works I may just get it. For $5.99 each, I can afford that LOL.

Glossybox Lashes and Nobia studs
Glossybox Lashes – one pair
Pair: $12.50
I wear false lashes once in a while when the mood strikes me or to an event where I want to have some extra WOW factor. These lashes look very thick and perhaps a little stiff.  So if you find them too stiff, try rolling the band around your finger or something to get more of a curve happening. You will need to buy lash glue to use these. I use Revlon lash glue. The brush makes the glue application easy.
Edited to Add: These lashes DID come with a tiny tube of lash glue. Mine fell on the floor when I opened it ..ooops.

Nobia X-Cessories - studs
This was a nice little gift - aquamarine blue studs.  The back of the packaging has a 30% rebate code on it if you wanted to purchase any Nobia accessories. The average price of their jewellery is $14.99, so it is affordable.

Yes, there were mostly drug store items but the majority of it was full sized and it is all stuff I will use and like. If I drove across the city to go get my December Glossybox, then yeah, I liked this month’s box J.

    I got almost the exact same box. while I appreciate the full sized items, I still don't feel the price increase was warranted. :(
