I was probably more excited by the colour of the box than anything else when I got my Glossy Box this month! Its just the perfect bright neon pink! I wish I could have like 5 boxes in this colour for storage in my bedroom! The attention to detail in this box is spot on, It just fits the Valentines theme really well! Strange for this to be their January box though as it would have made sense to have it as the next months offerings. But I suppose then it wouldnt arrive in time for Valentines Day!
I have mixed feelings on Eyeko, I don't really like their rebrand and I doubt I'd pay for it or pick it out myself. I was surprised to see them in the box actually as they seem to have been insistent that they are high end now, and I think being in a beauty box is a little devaluing. I do actually like the pencil though, I was sceptical about a lilacy pink pencil and inititally deemed it useless, but its similar to Benefit Eye Bright. It works well to open up the eyes. I've not actually tried anything else in the box unfortunately, So cant really comment on the rest. I do like the idea of the Cleansing Nectar, and the body moisturiser looks quite nice.
Overall the box looks good, Its not particularly exciting, but I dont think beauty boxes are anymore. Once I get past the OOH POST MANS HERE part, Im always left a bit "meh"! Im considering resigning from a few gifted boxes schemes as more and more I feel like Im just wasting products. There wasnt really a stand out product for me this month unfortunately, Although I suppose once I try some more out my opinions may change. We shall see, are you over the beauty box trend yet?
For the record- Bloggers DONT get different boxes from subscribers, I probably would have liked the Clarins stuff in a ideal world, but thats just the luck of the draw with beauty boxes! For more thoughts on beauty boxes read this post!
