I'm back with another Glossybox review, and possibly my last, as this is my final box of my Christmas gift subscription! I am probably not going to resubscribe because unfortunately the last two boxes haven't been so great, and I feel that my money could go towards something I really want!
On the bright side, it ends on a high because I'm actually really pleased with this box! All the brands are recognisable and I think I will use all the products.
So here's a rundown of what I received!
Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Cream
I've heard a lot about this product, and I find it amazing that it's been around since 1930, it's gotta be good! It's a really thick multi-purpose moisturiser, more like a thick balm. I get quite dry skin on my elbows so will be using this to see if it'll make a difference! I'm glad to receive this because I've wanted to try it out.
Juicy Couture - Couture La La perfume sample
A lot of people complain about getting perfume samples in beauty boxes, but I quite like it! As long as the scent is nice I like having a mini perfume to pop in my bag! This is a lovely floral sweet scent, very feminine. Lovely!
Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush
This looks very much like the Clinique Chubby Sticks, and a lot of brands have bee creating their own versions or dupes of them, so I'm quite pleased to receive this! The colour is a lovely vibrant pink, something which I don't yet own.

Nails inc - St. James
I love this! Last time they included a Nails inc polished I unfortunately missed out on getting their famous Porchester Square shade, but I'm so glad to get St. James! It's a really gorgeous pillar box red, I can't wait to wear it - it'll definitely be on my nails after I'm done with Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine in 'Satsuma'.

Tresemmé - Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray
I've just started curling my hair. I never did it before because I tried my curling tong once and didn't have it on a high enough heat and was convinced it didn't work. I finally realised what was wrong with it (DUH..) and whacked the heat up a bit (luckily enough not this much!) and it worked like a dream. So having a nice hairspray to help keep in the curls will be great! I have a few hairsprays already but they're all relatively cheap ones which don't work too well so I'm looking forward to using this!
Overall, a great box! I can't help thinking though that this would have been far better suited for the Valentine's box...some lovely pink and red shades, a good hairspray to give a fabulous barnet and a pretty, flirty scent - it would have been perfect!
