Why I think the December Glossybox is disappointing!

I'm here with a review for the December Glossybox which sadly to say is my worst one yet. I have been considering for the past 2 months cancelling Glossybox as I have noticed the products in the past 2 months have not been exciting for me at all and that I seem to find that I only like maybe 1 or 2 of the products in the entire box which for me says something! I feel as though this months box could of been much more better especially considering that it was the Christmas box.

The contents:
  • Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Stain in 'Coral'  (Full Size) £12.99
We received a spoiler for this box in our November boxes. I think the shade I received was what generated some dislike to this product, I think maybe if I had received another shade I would of felt more accustomed to this product. This is probably something I won't ever use.

  • Anatomicals Zap! Zap! Zap! Gets That Chap. Day and Night Spot Stick (Full Size) £3.79
I'm not a fan at all of Anatomicals, their products seem to bring out various spots and what not on my face. In all honesty for £3.79 I don't expect this to do anything really, seems to me to be a bit too cheap for it to provide any real difference to the face. 

  • TREsemme Renewal Hair and Scalp Nourish & Renew Tonic (Full Size) £5.50
An affordable brand, this product to me is probably one of only 2 things I like within this box. Although I am slightly skeptical to using it as I don't normally use anything for my hair however I will see how this product goes and actually see if it makes a difference.

  • SkinPep Hydra Boost - Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum (Sample Size) £24.99 for 70ml 
The only sample size within this box. I think what has annoyed me most is that when filling in the product surveys I clearly stated I did not want to receive anything more from this brand but yet here it is within my box. This will be passed on to my mum who will make some better use of it. 

  • Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish in 'Do you speak love?' (Full size) £2.36

The only other thing I somewhat like in this box. The deep cranberry shade in which this Nail Polish came in is very wearable for this season. It claims to have a gel-shine finish which I didn't really notice but I will be sporting this shade once I take my current one off. 

Regardless of there being 2 products I like, there are 3 I do not and won't ever use. I strongly believe this month was a huge letdown and was not worth the price (£13.25). This month could of been a really great month as it was the Christmas box and so they could of also included a little sweet treat as well. In addition to this I think the brands in this month were considerably cheap brands that are easily accessible for many of us. I would of preferred to have either gotten at least one high-end product considering it is Christmas or brands that are less accessible. It would of been great if the amazing box in which it came in had matched the products! In comparison with other boxes this month, this box really falls short of expectations. Currently I am debating as to whether I should continue my subscription... I will let you know in a future post my decision! Once again thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day! I appreciate all comments and should you want me to blog about anything in particular just drop me a little comment!
