My November 'The Glossy Wishlist' Glossybox

Hello Lovelies,

I received my November Glossybox yesterday and wanted to share with you what I got this month. I have always been really pleased with what I have received in my Glossyboxes but the last two months I haven’t been as excited.

The Theme for this month’s Glossybox is 'The Glossy Wishlist' and I think Glossybox chose the products for this month's box from things on their wishlists for this time of year?

Here is what I got this month…..

Vichy Idealia Life Serum – 2 x 3ml and Vichy Idealia - 1 x 3ml
I haven’t tried these before but I have used other things from Vichy and really liked them, so I was pleased to see this inside my box. They are described as ‘an all-round skin saviour’ and I am really looking forward to trying these. I really liked that these came in a cute pink drawstring bag and in fact it is probably my favourite item this month.

Emite Make Up Micronized Eyeshadow in Dams - 1.48g
This eyeshadow is suitable for sensitive eyes and gives an ‘even and lasting result’. I always like when I receive makeup items in a Glossbox and I think I would have been more happy to see this if I had received a different colour, because I don’t really wear black eyeshadow much, but I may try using this as a smoky liner.

Yves Rocher France Cocoa & Pistachio Nut Hand Cream - 75ml
Hand cream is something I seem to have a lot of and never use up, so I wasn’t so pleased to have received this. However it smell really nice so I will probably use this and just hope it is a hand cream that absorbs quickly, because I really don’t like ones that leave your hands sticky. I may keep it on my desk at work so I remember to use it. 

Elegant Touch Rapid Dry for Nails -125ml
This spray claims to dry your nail polish in 60 seconds as well as condition your cuticles. I already have this product and don’t use it that often, because I've never been that impressed with it. However after talking to some bloggers on Twitter who recommended it I will try and use it more to give it another chance and at least now I have another one when the one I already have runs out.

B. Long-lasting Nail Polish in 180 Midnight - 8ml
This claims to be a long lasting nail polish that has a ‘high-shine finish’ and at the moment I paint my nails at least twice a week because I find having them painted makes them grow better and I love trying new nail polishes. Initially when I saw this I wished I had received a different colour, because it is not one I would normally choose, however after looking at some swatches of it online I am coming round to it more and I guess the whole point of things like Glossyboxes is you get to try things you wouldn't normally and you might like them.

Overall I wasn't that excited with this month’s Glossybox but I think that is partly because after reading what other people received I would have preferred to receive some of the other things included in Glossyboxes this month or the eyeshadow and nail polish in different shades. 

What did you get in your Glossybox this month? Leave me your link as a comment if you have posted about yours.
