As you can see five products are included in this month’s box; four of which are full sized products and the fifth is ‘luxury size’.

UNANI | Dermo Defense Face Mask – (full size – £11.36)

This gel formula face mask is made to hydrate and nourish the complexion, with being ideal for sensitive skin. It is herbal-based and is made to help your skin with two things; caring and keeping it protected; especially around this cold time of the year.

Of course I haven’t used this product as of yet so I cannot comment on how effective it actually is.

Teeez Cosmetics | Oasis Gem Lipstick – (full size £11.93)

Lipsticks are always products that I like to receive, I don’t know what it is because I’m not even that experimental when it comes to lip colours, however when getting a lipstick in a subscription service like Glossybox it always makes me smile. This lipstick is in the shade: Coral Onyx and it has a matte finish. I have tried this lipstick actually and personally find it to be more of a pink with an coral undertone, but of course that is just my opinion. This lipstick is incredibly pigmented! but I have to say that it has a very strange perfume’y scent that doesn’t really taste all that nice – of course I know you are not suppose to eat it, however sometimes you can’t help but get the taste. Being as this has a matte finish also, I find it would probably look and feel better with a lip gloss or moisturising balm over the top, as this can feel quite drying on the lips, which is quite unusual as this lip product does have added coconut oil to keep lips nourished and hydrated.

Madara | Cellular Repair Serum – (full size £38.00) 

Included is a ‘luxury size’

A clinically proven serum by Madara which is to help plump skin whilst boosting it with hydration and radiance. This product is to also help with anti-ageing; with helping your skin to become firmer and giving it the moisture and vitality it needs.

Of course I haven’t used this product as of yet so I cannot comment on how effective it actually is.

ANGELE Paris | Red Nail Lacquer – (full size £6.32)

A good old classic red glossy nail polish, who doesn’t love one of these? I haven’t as yet used this product but I definitely will be soon.

GLOSSYBOX Eyeshadow | in the shade: Glossy Mauve – (full size £7.10)

This is one product that I was definitely shocked to see, I mean I have never seen a cosmetic product by Glossybox before so it was a nice surprise. This eyeshadow shade is described as a smoky purple, which is of course hugely in fashion at the moment. From just doing a swatch on the back of my hand as shown above I was very impressed with the pigmentation in this product, I am definitely going to experiment with this eyeshadow! However for more of an intense dramatic coloured look, glossybox recommends to apply with either your finger tips or a wet brush – perhaps spray a touch of MAC’s fix+ on your brush to get that pigmentation to it’s max.

That was everything included in the January Glossybox, please let me know what you thought in the comments below.
