THE GLOSSYBOX: THE BACK TO BASICS BOX



This month, Glossybox have treated us to the 'Back to basics'* box.

This samples in this months offering are intended to help us kick off 2014 with a new beauty regime, the edit of products designed to get us back on the road to moisturised and toned healthy skin and well sculpted brows.

Before we begin with that famous line..Let's have a peek at what's in the box..
I wanted to point out that I am loving the new 'Glossy' magazine that now accompanies the products. 
The month the content is much more fresh, well rounded (there is an ode to some rather tasty looking food) and just thick enough to flick through in your lunch break.

The Vintage Cosmetics Company:Floral Slanted Tweezers
A gal can never have too many pairs of tweezers, especially girls like me whereby the brow needs some serious taming everyday. I use my Tweezermans on a regular basis as they are just unbeatable for precision however, I think it is a good idea to have a pair of tweezers in multiple make-up bags, just incase you forget them and end up looking like Hairy Mclary over a weekend.
These tweezers really do hold their own, the sharpness of them is to point and the precision eradicates even the most pesky hairs.

Beauty UK: CC Cream
I recently reviewed this uber cheap, drugstore CC cream in [THIS POST] - click the link if you want to find out my thoughts.

Anatomicals: Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer - Wake-up Under Eye Patches
I think these are such a genius idea! Ever woken up after the night before and you like you've done five rounds with Mike Tyson? These patches help reviatalise the delicate skin around our eyes helping us to feel more awake and refreshed. I will be writing a full review on them very soon so look out for that if you're interested.

Balance Me: Super Toning Bodywash
With a blend of Juniper, Bergamot, Geranium and Lavender essential oils this product smells like a dream in the shower. I use this in the morning to wake myself up and leave my skin exoticly scented.

Yu-Be: Moisturising Skin Cream
I have received Yu-Be products in a previous Glossybox and I liked them. Yu-Be products are cult in Japan, this cream being multi purpose. I like to pop a pea size amount onto my skin before applying my make-up. The inclusive vitamins protecting my skin from the cold weather.
