January Glossy Box

I'm a little late posting about this month's glossy box, so sorry if you've already seen it several times elsewhere.  Although, it did seem to be that the difference between boxes was much wider this month - none of the other reviews I've seen have the exact same contents as my box.

January's theme is aptly detox so the box includes products to rejuvenate us for the new year.


In my box I was really pleased to see a 50ml of Vichy's Normaderm tri-activ cleanser.  I'm new to the Vichy range and have just recently been trying out a Vichy micellar water solution, from the same range and I really like it, so it'll be great to try this too - a brilliant addition to the box. Next is the Mono Renu flash relax mask. I've not heard of this before but am quite intrigued by it as it's a gel mask which is a little bit different.  I also got a lip balm by a brand that's new to me called Jason - this looks to be a really natural lip balm and the minty smell is lovely so I'm sure to use this up.  

I've tried something from the Premae range before and have been lucky enough to meet the brand's founder, so it's lovely to see something from her range in my glossybox and makes me think the brand must be becoming even more successful.  The product I got to try is a face toner which seems to be exactly right for my skin type - not sure if that was just a coincidence or not, but I shall definitely be trying this out.  The last product on the right is a thermal face mask from Sanctuary Spa.  I love a good face mask and I quite enjoy using the ones that heat up - I've not tried one of these in a long while so I'm looking forward to relaxing in the bath with this on my face.  

Glossybox continued their trend for included a little extra own brand product this month with the glossybox eye mask.  I don't dislike it, I think it's cute, but it's not really something I'll use.  

Did you get the same in your glossybox?

  1. I got the lip balm & toner but a clay mask by Monu which is nice! I'd be interested to see what the gel one is like :)
    I love that Vichy product (reviewed it last week if you're interested!), it's surprisingly nice to use as a mask. Your skin feels lovely and smooth afterwards :) xx
