November Glossybox... the Glossy Wishlist!

Hi guys!! 

Today I'm back with a the long overdue November Glossybox post! 
I was meant to upload this ... well, ages ago! But Uni life gets in the way sometimes and having 3 assignments for English Lit to be in this month sadly blogging had to be put on hold! 

But life should be calming down now and I hope to be back in full force on the blog front for the time being!

Before I get into the post just a quick reminder that I'm running a Christmas Giveaway where you can get your hands on some Elemis freshskin Goodies and more! Be sure to join! ENTER HERE!!

Now onto Novembers Glossybox! The one benefit of having such a delayed glossybox review is that its given me the chance to properly try out all the products and form an opinion on them!
This months box ran with the theme "the Glossy Wishlist" the concept behind this box was to include all the products that the 'glossy team' have been lusting over for Christmas. 

First off, we have the Yves Rocher France Hand Cream in Cocoa and Orange! I kid you not this stuff is essentially Terry's chocolate orange in a tube, it smells A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. 
Not only does it smell good enough to eat, it also is super nourishing and sinks straight into your skin without leaving that annoying greasy residue you get with some hand creams. 
This is a full size product worth £1.95 for 75ml

Next, we have the Agese Oils Face Glow, which I must admit is the only product that I am yet to try from this box, purely because I am a little scared about putting a oil onto my already oily skin. I will give this ago but probably once my skin starts to suffer from the cold winter days and could do with abit of extra nourishment. 
The concept behind this oil is to improve your skins texture and promote cell rejuvenation; it also claims to maintain its natural effectiveness for up to 12 months! Which is pretty amazing if it does! 
This was a 2ml sample worth £3.80. FULL SIZE £29 for 15ml

Next is the staple product for this month that everyone received (if im not mistaken). The Vichy Idealia Life Serum this is another one of those products that just smells like a spa, it smells so relaxing and is really lovely to apply. A little goes a long way with this and I would probably consider repurchasing this in the future. The concept behind the Idealia Life serum is to transform the appearance of skins quality and to help to protect your skin from the visible effects of stress, pollution, smoke or an unbalanced diet. Which as you can imagine is amazing for me at the moment with my hectic assignments, house hunting for next year, living in a city and having a diet that for the past week has been roughly 70% subway. I've really been enjoying using this and there is definately an improvement in the appearance of my skin, so far. They have also included a sample of the Idealia Smoothing and Illuminating cream but I am yet to try this, so I have high hopes! 
This included:
Two 3ml samples of the Idealia Life Serum worth £5.90, FULL SIZE £29.50 for 30ml
One 3ml sample of Idealia smoothing and illuminating cream worth £1.32, FULL SIZE £22 for 50ml

Next up is a familiar name from the August Glossybox, its the Emite Make Up Micronized Eyeshadow - Dams. In August we received a pretty good eyelash curler and this month we have a Eyeshadow. I was happy to receive this but if I'm being honest I was disappointed I received black as I know I wont be getting a whole lot of use for it. I have however used it to set my eyeliner and it really is a super pigmented black and is perfect for the job, so every cloud an all that!
This was a full size product worth £16.80 for 1.48g

Finally, we have the Elegant Touch Rapid Dry for Nails now this does what it says on the tin to an extent but it doesn't dry your nails instantly and does leave a slightly oily residue on your nails after you have used it. I do like this but I most probably wouldn't be purchasing this again! 
This was a full size product worth £3 for 125ml 

There you have it, Novembers Glossybox! In total this box was worth a whopping £32.77!! Which is AMAZING value for money! 

Glossybox is a monthly subscription service costing £10pm + pp for at least 5 luxe beauty samples. 

 Sorry this one was late but in mid Decemeber you will be getting 2 Glossybox reviews to make up for it!! 

Hope you have enjoyed!
