January Glossybox

So this months box came a bit later than normal because it was a special edition Valentines Day box. It didn't bother me too much that it was late but I was very excited when it finally arived on my doorstep.
This months box was also hot pink, i'm really not a pink person but I really do love this and I thought it was a nice touch which made it a bit more special. So onto what was acutally inside!
I feel this month people seemed to guy a lot of different things compared to other months. I was happy that a got a good mix of skincare and make-up.
1, Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner - 'get a handle on your eyeliner for precise definition and intense colour with a long lasting finish.' Full Size £9.50 per pencil.
I have heard of Eyeko products but never bought because I felt they were expensive for what they were. They have also re-brand their products and increased the price recently. The eyeliner I got was in the colour 'Plum'. I really like the shade and it seems to apply nicely, I do feel that there is a lot of packaging and not a lot of product. I'm glad I got this though and will definitely be trying it out some more.
2, ORLY Nail Laquer - 'Orly the top California brand, offers an infinite range of colours.' Full Size £6.95 for 18ml.
Orly is another brand I had heard of and wanted to try for sometime, I acutally thought that their polishes cost more than that so I was pleased to see that they were cheaper. The colour I got was 'Ruby' which is a lovely deep red shade. I love it and it only took 2 coats and left a lovely sheen. If this wears well I will definitely be trying some other shades in the future.
3, Weleda One Step Cleanser & Toner - 'Weleda one-step cleanser and toner is a handy two in one pack ideal for travel.' Full Size £9.95 for 100ml.
This is probably my least favourite product in this months box. It seems to be an almost milk like consistency, I agree that something like this would be useful for travel. I will try it but I am pretty happy with my skincare rountine at the moment and this is a brand that I have never heard of before.
4, FAB Gentle Body Wash - 'A moisturising irritant-free everyday cleanser ideal for even the most sensitive skin.' Full Size £13.00 for 226.8g.
I got the FAB cleanser in last months box and loved it so much I bought the full size and the daily face cream which I aslo love so I was happy to see another product by them in this months box. I don't really have sensitive skin but this seems like a really nice product that I might save for travelling because its a really handy size.
5, Murad Hybrid Skin Perfecting Primer - Dewy Finish - 'Oil-free primer ignites a radiant glow, powered by light enhancing minerals.' Full size £29.00 for 30ml.
Last month Glossybox asked you to fill in a questionaire including skin type etc so each box could be more suited to you. I was a bit annoyed to see that I got a product that gives a dewy finish when I said I have oily skin and prefer a matte finish. The product itself is flesh toned but blends out. I like the fact that it is oil free, I think I will save this for a night out when I want a more glowy look. I don't think I would buy the full size since it seems a bit pricey.

So thats this months box, all in all I do like it and I thought the Glossybox sweet was a cute touch. I didn't feel that this month was anymore special that others months like they said it was, it seemed like a normal box to me. I will still keep subscribing though because I do like the service.

What did you get in this months box?
