Glossybox | November 2014

Oh my favourite time of the month! No - not that time TMI haha and besides from payday obviously my other favourite thing is receiving goodie boxes. I just received my beauty advent calendar too so i'm excited to start that! ON MY BIRTHDAY!!!
Anyway, it's been a very long time since i last posted about anything beauty related really and i've been having deprivation.. is that what it's called?..
When i received my Glossybox, i did honestly think it felt a bit empty inside - normally they feel quite full but this time it felt quite shaky inside which also meant it felt a little empty too.
When i opened the box i was quite surprised to see a full sized item or two or THREE - despite the fact the box felt so empty i now know why! The full sized items were tiny but obviously they are full sizes still. So the item i was most excited about and purely because i was looking for a new one, was the Lollipops Eye Pencil (€14) - i've used this a few times now and i am loving it! It's jet black which i love, doesn't smudge and stays put all day, i have a feeling i'll be repurchasing this! Plus it has cool packaging and it's twist-up to which means i don't have to sharpen it! YAY!!
Another exciting item was the Burt's Bees Lip Shine in Whisper (£6.99) - i already have an obsession with Burt's Bees so this was just an extra added bonus, plus i needed a new lip gloss to and the shade it's beautiful and perfect for everyday wear.
For the last full sized item i received the Umberto Giannini Miracle Worker (£8.00) - I used to love Umberto Giannini way before the blogging days and i used to always use their products so i'm glad to have a product of theirs back into my life and i've already tried this a few times and it's great for fizziness and leaves a lovely shine to your hair!

For the mini's i received the H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment (£27.50 for 50ml), i've used this product before i think i must of received a sample of this in my beauty advent calendar last year, anyway this product is practically a face mask though it doesn't state that on the card but you apply this onto damp skin and leave for 5minutes to absorb then massage in excess. I've used this before and remember it being a tad sticky for my face and i didn't really see much of a difference either..
The last sample i received was the MONU Refining Capri Facial Oil (£26 for 100ml), now i was intrigued by this because i do love me some facial oils for my dry skin, i applied this before bed when my skin was feeling really dry and woke up to beautifully glowing skin, still a little dry but it works wonders on those dry areas as well as balancing out the oils.

Overall i'm happy with this month's box, there's so many goodies in this box that i would actually use and i've discovered new favourites that i would definitely repurchase.
