Glossybox: January 2012

What was in January's Glossybox?
-Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner
-Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream
-Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream
- FAB Body Moisturiser 
-Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer- Dewy Finish

and also this little treat below :) 

The first item in my Glossybox was this Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Plum. At first I was a bit bewildered by the shape of this product but after some research I discovered it was a handy contraption so that you can sharpen the eye liner right down and you still have a handle. I am not overly impressed by the pigment of this product as you do have to go over it a couple of times to build up the colour. However, this product does smudge out really well so it's great if you want to create a smokey eye.

The second item in the box was this Murad Skin Perfecting Primer which is supposed to give a dewy finish. The product has a thin, silky consistency and a little goes a long way. It is slightly tinted, so may not be suitable for pale skin, but on darker skin tones it blends in really nicely and evenly. I've not yet tried this under foundation but I shall give an update, once I have done so.

The next item was this FAB Body Moisturiser. This product is meant to nourish the skin, relieve dryness and lock in moisture. The first thing I have to say about this product is about its packaging. As the moisturiser is so thick it is really hard to squeeze it out of the bottle, so I think this would be better suited for tub rather than a bottle. This is an all natural product so is unscented, which is good if you plan on wearing a perfume and you don't want the smell of your moisturiser to overpower it. This sinks in really nicely to your skin and leaves it feeling nourished and fresh.

The next two items in the Glossybox were the Extra-Firming day and night creams from Clarins. I was really glad when I received these as I have used them before and loved them. The day cream has a nice and light formula, perfect for underneath your foundation as it sinks in really well and creates a nice moisturised base.

The night cream has a thicker consistency than the day cream, as you would expect from a night cream. This feels absolutely luxurious when applying to your skin, it melts in and leaves your skin feeling smooth and supple.
