Love me beauty and Glossybox - December 2013

As long term subscribers will know December beauty boxes are usually one of the best, and seeing as Love me beauty and Glossybox have both done well recently, I was really looking forward to seeing what they had in store for us this Christmas:

Starting with Love me beauty, who have focused on make up and skincare this month. Although it may not look like it, there are actually 3 full sized products inside - a nude Lord and berry lipstick, a pinky lilac lip liner and a taupe coloured Headline nail varnish. I thought the lip liner and nail varnish were lovely, but sadly the Glazed pink lipstick was too pale for my skintone.

The 3 make up items were the same in all boxes, however it was nice to be able to choose my skincare. I went for S5 vitality mask and Rodial 5 minute facial, both of which helps to reduce pore size, clear imperfections and improve radiance, something that my skin could definitely do with this time of year.

There's also a discount coupon inside which you could pass onto a friend, giving them 2 extra products in their first Love me beauty box.

In keeping with the season, Glossybox have for a red box this month and I have to say I'm really liking the Christmas tree design. Product wise, I thought there was a good mix of skincare, make up and body care. Of the 5, I'm probably least keen on the white Seche nail varnish and Yin Yang rich skin food sachets, however I'm sure both could be passed onto a more loving home.

The Beautiful movements lipgloss and Maybelline colossal mascara will come in really useful though and what with the party season coming up, I'm looking forward to putting Wilkson intuition razor to the test. The other thing I like about Glossybox is that they do a mini magazine, and this month I particularly enjoyed the Christmas gift guide and behind the scenes interviews.

Overall, it seems both companies have gone for products to help us get party ready. It would have been nice if the boxes were a bit more festive themed (I would have loved a glitter polish or sparkly eyeshadow for that extra wow factor). That said, both boxes will still come in handy over the festive period, and with 3 full sized products in each they're good value too.

Are you a beauty box subscriber? What did you think about this month's boxes?
