Glossy Box January 2017



I cannot believe we are a few weeks into 2017, I swear time just keeps passing by in a blink of an eye. I’m pretty excited about 2017 and what it holds for me. I’ll admit the first weeks haven’t been great, I’ve not been feeling the best. I’ve also closed a door with some family members and old friends who no longer do me nor my own family any good. Since becoming a mother I’ve realised I want strong people around Emma. People who I think will make a difference in her life. I never want her to doubt how much she is loved by anyone. I’m a strong believer of Family isn't always blood. It's the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what.”
But like every other thing in life when one door closes another opens, when you remove toxic people from your life it makes room for the greatest things. Anyways back to my first box of the year

Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser RRP £19.95- 


When I saw this in my box I was pretty pleased, I discovered NIP + FAB a few months ago and I love their Glycolic Fix Pads and Dragons Blood Fix Serum. I can’t wait to try this, I think I’m going to use it in the evenings to start off with.

The Balm Meet Matt(e) RRP £34.00 (Palette)- 


This is one of the eye shadows you get in the palette “Meet Matt(e)” I got the shade Matt Moskowitz. To be totally honest it’s not a shade I will get much use of. It also feels very chalky but I’m going to give it a go anyways. I’ve never bought anything from “The Balm” but there’s a few things I’d love to purchase this year.

Unani Illuminate Milk Cleanser RRP £14.00-


I haven’t used this yet but I’ve looked online and seen good reviews. I don’t like swapping a lot of products when it comes to skincare because I have super sensitive skin. I currently use Clinique and really like it.  I’ve never heard of this brand either.

Manuka Honey Face Mask RRP £3.99-


I love getting face masks in my boxes because it’s something I use once a week for a little pamper me session when Emma is in bed.

Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush RRP £6.99-


Okay, a face brush? Really? I don’t see the point in this. I knew I wouldn’t use it so after I took photos I passed it down to my brother’s girlfriend. I personally use cleansing brushes. I really want to purchase another Clarisonic, mine broke a year ago and because I was pregnant with Emma I didn’t repurchase one till a few weeks ago but I bought a cheap Avon one. It’s good but not amazing.




January box was created around super foods and the New Year. So many of us make the resolution that we are going to be healthier, I think this box really focuses on skincare.  I can see the theme throughout the box and they even put a little quote on the inside of box which I thought was really cute. I haven’t been too impressed with my boxes, I’ve ended up with a draw full of sample size products. I’m trying not to buy any beauty/skincare products so I can use up what I have.

  4. I completely agree that family are not the people who you're related to by blood, they're the people who stuck around and never left! I think you're taking a really positive step by blocking out that negativity from your life, both for your own sake and for your daughter! Anyway, on to the Glossybox! The honey face mask sounds absolutely divine! It's a shame about the face brush, I think I'd have been a bit disappointed to recieve that as well!

    1. Family can be the worst! I'm so lucky my husband has agreed with my decisions and what's best for us!

      Yeah that's the thing with subscription boxes they can be hit and miss.. xx

  5. I've read quite a few posts about this box not being that great, and I'm the worst person when it comes to skincare so I probably wouldn't be THAT impressed with the box... although it would probably convince me to use more skincare products! I love your pictures!

  7. Isn't having super sensitive skin a pain? The amount of products I can't use is ridiculous! Introducing new skincare can be great but we have to be very careful! I love the selection of goodies you got but maybe it's not the best box for you this time!

    1. Yeah!
      I think skincare is such a personal thing so I didn't like this box. I gave it a go and two days later started breaking out like crazy! x

  12. I never have been subscribed to Glossybox but I really do want to try it at some stage. I don't understand it when they send a box full of the skincare because of the fact that a lot of people do not want to try new skincare
