Unboxing the December 2021 Glossy Box

Guess what? My December Glossy box has arrived and even from the outside, I looks special. This month instead of their normal pink and black box, Glossy went with something different. And no, it wasn’t simply a box with a special design. This month’s box is a reusable tin.

How cool is that? The metal tin is blue with a starry night motif and a few snowflakes scattered about. I personally really like the replacement box as I know this is something I will definitely use repeatedly. I am very pleased with the box and happy to even kind of consider it the first item in the box.

It isn’t however counted as one of the items.

Shall we look and see what the items are?

The first item I could smell before I even opened the box. It is the Rituals Ritual of Mehr loving body cream. It is a 70 ml tube so it will last a while. I don’t remember if it was in a previous Glossy Box or if it came in a Look Fantastic box, but I have had the Ritual of Mehr before. I believe it was a body wash though. It might have been a cream. I can’t remember. I do remember I really liked the scent and the way it made my skin feel, so I am happy to have the product.

The next item is a double hitter. I don’t know if they accidentally put two Batiste dry shampoos in my box or if everyone got them, but I am happy to see them. Batiste is not my favorite dry shampoo, but it is okay in a pinch. Personally I only really like the original one. I generally found the others left far more residue in my hair. The original is definitely the best of the brand and I was lucky enough to get two of the original dry shampoos. And at the moment while I have a full sized dry shampoo, I don’t have any travel sized ones so it is nice to have a smaller size. And dry shampoo is something that I will always use.

The third item out of this month’s Glossy box is the Elemis Superfood Glow Priming Moisturizer. It is a deluxe size and you all know how much I love the brand Elemis. I have actually not tried this moisturizer so I am very much looking forward to giving it a go. And it is always a nice day when I get elemis in a subscription box.

After the elemis I pulled three teabags out of my beauty box, which came as quite the surprise. Glossy box did include the Four Sigmatic Cacao powders last month so it isn’t completely random that they have beverage packets in the beauty box, but it always takes me by surprise when there is anything edible in a beauty box. The three teas are from the company Vahdam Teas. One is Turmeric Chamomile, one is Lemon Ginger and the third is turmeric ginger. I adore Lemon Ginger and look forward to giving this one a go. My babydoll has already claimed the other two. I have never been a fan of chamomile so that one I was always going to turn over to him since he loves it. And he thought the turmeric ginger looks interesting so I went ahead and gave it to him as well. But I fully intend to try out the Lemon Ginger.

The next item I took out of the December tin was a Laruce blending brush. I actually have a couple of sets of Laruce brushes. They are a good quality brush and their blending brushes are the perfect size for me. And I always need another tapered blending brush. The handle even matches the set I have. I am more than happy to use it.

And finally, we have LA Splash Cosmetics Moonlight Glow Face palette. In a palette that looks like it was designed to match the metal tin in which it arrived, we have two blushes, one pink and one more neutral in tone, a bronzer and a highlight. I have tried eyeshadows from LA Splash before but nothing else. The eyeshadows I remember being a bit on the patchy side. Hopefully I will have better luck with these products. They look absolutely lovely and I really like the look of the palette, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that they work well for me when I try them out.

So that my darlings was my December Glossy box. Usually the box is $21 per month, but I am on an annual pay so I only pay $18 you can get 25% off your December box with the code GLOW25 while supplies last. If you don’t make it for the December box by clicking and using my Referral code you can still get 20% off. That is with this link here. I believe it is automatic and I think I get glossy credit if you use it. If that bothers you no worries, they generally have a new discount code each month for first time subscribers.

Glossy box also has several limited edition boxes out now that look pretty great as well. Some are holiday themed and others are brand based (I think one is Bumble and Bumble) The prices all vary depending on the box. But they are all listed on the Glossy Box site. Over all I was very happy with this month’s box and think that I definitely got my $18 worth out of it. I am happy to keep this subscription going into the new year.
