Glossybox - All Time Favourites

(All the following pictures are taken from the glossybox site as my products are now for the most used up!)

I have been considering making a post like this for a while, if you read my blog you will know i'm a glossybox lover and review their boxes as soon as they arrive on my door every month! I have been a glossybox subscriber since July 2012 and wanted to make a post about what have been my favourite products i have received in my boxes (so far)! So in true glossybox fashion here are my top 5 almost like a dream glossybox! 

Deep Cleansing Oil

1- DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
August 2012 Glossybox 

I absolutely loved this product it was a shame the sample size was only 30ml i was so gutted when it ran out!
I loved the way this removed every last trace of makeup from my face and i could literally watch my makeup run down the drain. You apply this product to a dry face and then rinse off with water (it is amazing at removing stubborn eye makeup) The full size bottle, 200ml, retails at around £18.50 which for two hundred ml i think is totally worth it, that would last me forever! However i haven't got round to buying the full size because of the endless amount of cleansers i need to use up that are stacked in my bathroom! And also my new love for lush cleansers! But i would completely recommend this! I have combination skin which is prone to breaking out and this did not irritate it at all and was left soft and smooth after use no dry patches or oily residue! 

2) Seche Nail Lacque in Simplicity
December 2012 Glossybox

 I am so happy i got the chance to try a Seche polish thanks to glossybox! I absolutely love this! I was a little skeptical when i read that one coat would be enough for each nail as i always usually apply 2-3 coats of any polish i own but this really only needs one coat to be opaque and has the best non chip staying power of any nail varnish i have ever tried! There were a few variations in colour offered in the December box but i am glad i received the nude pink colour as it is different to any other i already own ( and i sneakily get away with wearing it to work shh!) This was a generous full size 14ml sample and mine is still going strong i would definitely try some more colours from this brand but they are a little pricey at £9.95 a pop!

Damage reverse™ Instant Restorative Hair Serum
3) Ojon - Instant Restorative Hair Serum
Special Edition Harrods (March 2012) Glossybox
(although i began in July i chose a deal which allowed me to get the march glossybox also which i am so happy about now!)

This is a forgotten gem that i recently found whilst clearing out the many hair products i hoard! I had totally forgotten how much i loved this when i first received it! This is an amazing cure for split ends and if like me you have dry frizzy hair a little of this goes a long way! I love how this instantly calms any frizz and makes my hair so smooth especially on days where i want to wear it straight.

Daily Microfoliant®

4) Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant November 2012 Glossybox

This is by far the best exfoliant i have ever used. I love the powder form it comes in and only half a tea spoon amount is needed to exfoliate your entire face. When mixed with water the powder turns to a paste which is surprisingly gentle and not messy at all. Its the after effects of this i love the most it leaves my skin super soft and glowy and i feel totally refreshed. This is gentle enough to use daily but i use it about twice a week instead to try and stretch out its life haha!
Miniature Lip Cover Rosewood N°4

5) Burberry Miniature Lip Colour in Rosewood March 2012 Glossybox

This is without a doubt my all time favourite product i have ever received from glossybox. Lip products are my favourite makeup items and every time i receive one in a glossybox i get so excited but i didn't expect to love a lipstick as much as i love this. Although i received this in July it is still going strong, surprising for a miniature sample! The browny plum colour is so nice and really compliments my skin tone and i can wear this both in the day time and on nights out, its such a versatile product! Not to mention it's so easy to chuck in a bag or squeeze into a clutch on a night out! The colour is long wearing and leaves my lips moisturised and nourished and i am also a little bit in love with the packaging. I am shamefully most likely going to commit to buying the full size when mine meets the end even though it is a ridiculous £22.50, i love it too much.

So that was my top 5 favourite glossybox products! I feel these could have been different if i had got some of the items i missed out on ( Like the HD brows palette! I'm still a little touchy about missing out on that one!) But i can't complain as i absolutely love all five of the above products, i also feel a couple of others deserve an honorable mention as they just missed out on the top five: Paul Mitchel texturizing sea spray, sleek lipstick in candy cane & Alessandro Pro White.

What are your top 5 glossy picks? Have you tried any of my favourites? Let me know!
