All I Want For Christmas, Is Glossybox!
Happy 1st December! We can finally sing Mariah out loud, drink got chocolate while watching Christmas films, and what better way to start the festive month than getting your own beauty treat everyday leading up to Christmas. I chose the Glossybox Advent calendar this year because you actually get 14 full size products, there was 25 days (unlike some calendars that just have 12 or 24 days) and it was under £100! Perfect.
If you are a subscriber to Glossybox, then this advent calendar will cost you £75. If you aren’t a subscriber then you need to be, but this calendar will cost £99. Which is still think is amazing considering what is in it and the fact some calendars have been advertised between £125-£200.
The design of the box is honestly stunning. It’s a metallic rose gold, grey and white pattern that just stands out from wherever you put it in a room. As you open the beautiful ribbon on the front you can see all the individual boxes numbered inside on a couple of shelves with 25 stuck on one of the doors. The other door has lovely writing listing words to do with beauty.
I love how each box has its own design and they are all different sizes. There are stunning gold, deep purple, grey, pink and white boxes all filled with tissue paper inside hiding the product.
