Discoveries: December GLOSSYBOX
2014 is right around the corner! With New Years Eve dinner reservations secured and my dress chosen, I've had time to sample all five products in my December GLOSSYBOX!
Anatomicals You Need a Blooming Shower Body Wash-Full Size $5.50-Included in box!
This is the 7th product from the Anatomicals line that I've sampled and I continue to love each one (I felt a pang of sadness when my spray misty reached empty status last week and squealed with joy when I discovered our hotel in Prague provided a cosmetic bag full of Anatomicals products!). The scent of this wash is a pitch-perfect bouquet of fragrant roses. The price-point is excellent for the quality, which features refreshing aloe vera and jasmine in the formula. If you're interested in trying this UK brand, you can find a variety of the products at ASOS.
Ardency Inn- Punker World's Baddest Eyeliner-Full Size $19-Included in box!
The bulky packaging is all show, this liquid eye-liner features a thin-tipped brush to craft a precise cat-eye. Meow.
Michael Todd True Organics- Pumpkin Mask- Full Size $34
Pumpkin on your face? Apparently it's a good thing. The product looks and smells just like fresh pumpkin. Unfortunately (for me and other sensitive skin folks), the ingredients include glycolic acid which is no bueno. I really wanted to like this product, but the test area stung! As with all products that aren't great for one use, I try to find another way to make it work for me: foot soak. My feet weren't pleased either. A generous application of shea butter lotion later- they are content.
Nails Inc- Lacquer in Victoria- Full Size $9.50-Included in box!
Featuring a deep cherry hue, this product was the most enticing in the box. Did I mention I collect nail lacquer like fine wines? I have a few other colors from Nails Inc, which boasts long-lasting and high shine formulas. I'm on day #3 with regular activities (cooking, lifting weights, peeling off labels, etc) and I have one teeny-tiny hardly noticeable chip on my right index finger. Perhaps the shade should be renamed Victory?
Naobay- Oxygenating Cream- Full Size $44
When I read rosehip seed oil on the list of ingredients, I knew I'd be smitten with this cream. Have you tried anything with nutrient? It's a little miracle worker in cleansers and moisturizers. I've been applying it to my neck and collar bones after showering for a fresh start to my day.
