Glossybox November 2014 - Review

I seriously cannot believe that we are on the November edition of Glossybox, I think it has been a mixed bag of boxes over the last few months but one thing I think that is noticeable with Glossybox is that, at times it can be a little repetitive items that are included. That been said there has been some decent items included over the months and I continue to look forward to seeing what is in each box. 

My initial impressions of the November box were it looked a little sparse, the products appeared to look very lonely! I also noticed that we have reverted back to the original product card instead of being sent it via email, I'm guessing that was clearly not a popular option!

What was received this month?

The first item was the spoiler item that was featured in last months box, Lollipops Make Up Eye Pencil (full size received RRP 14 Euros), a retractable eye pencil which provides a deep colour with a long lasting result. This is a lovely item, I do have a ton of black eye liners but you can never have too many, right?! I also love the cute packaging too.

Second item in the box is a Burt's Bees Lip Shine in Shade Whisper (full size 14g received RRP £6.99). This is a lovely little item to receive, it's a perfect colour for me to use day to day at work and it's lovely to apply, I would definitely consider purchasing this if I saw it in the shops.

Third item was a brand that I have never heard of before and is available from Marks & Spencer meaning it's quite accessible to repurchase. The H2O+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment (8ml tube received, RRP £27.50 for 50ml), this oil-free moisture gel is designed to deliver deep hydration while at the same time minimising fine lines. This is quite a nice item, smells quite perfumed which some people might not be so keen on. 

Next item was by Monu, I really do love these products but was a little disappointed to see it was another oil sent as I'm not a huge fan of facial oil but I will give it a go. Monu Skincare Firming Fiji Facial Oil (30ml received, RRP £26.00 for  100ml), this smells exactly how products used in spa's do, it has the beautiful herbal, natural scent to it, delightful! This particular oil is designed to nourish and protect as well as firming and toning the skin.

The last item included was another oil but this time a hair oil, don't get me wrong I love a hair oil but I recently received a different brand a few boxes back so again I get the feeling that there is quite alot of repetition with these boxes of late. Anyway, I digress this particular oil is Natural World Coconut water & Hydration & Shine Weightless Hair Oil (25ml received, £9.99 for 100ml). The best thing about this item is the gorgeous smell, it's scent is divine and I can't wait to try it out, coconutty goodness! 

The last little treat/extra received was a £20 off when you spend £60 or over at a website called Best Secret, it's not a website I'd previously heard of but after a little look around it seems to offer a fair bit of designer gear, I hope that I might be able to find something to spend it on. 

So there we have the November Glossybox, I'm neither disappointed or overly thrilled with this month's selection of items but I do have high hopes for the December box!

Did anyone receive anything different this month?
