November, for me, is all about getting cosy and warm by the fire. I love this time of year and quite possibly it’s my favourite. No, actually, it IS my favourite. Warm mugs of hot chocolate by a fire with a Christmas film on and you snuggled up on the sofa with the kids under a duvet, there is nothing better.
Winter Warmers is the theme this month for Glossybox and I was so very excited to see what snuggerly wondrous items the box would contain this month.
If you are new to Glossybox then here is a little info. As you have probably gathered Glossybox is a beauty subscription service. Each month, it delivers a wide and varied selection of 5 beauty treats that include niche, high-end and emerging brands. I love this because you can get some good old faithful products yet try some things you would never normally buy.
The latest trends are taken into account with every single box (you can see past boxes here) to bring you reusable and stylish boxes full of beauty essentials.
There are 4 different ways to subscribe to Glossybox starting from as low as £9.50! Choose between a monthly rollover box (cancel any time), a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month pre-paid subscription. Each month there is a little deal to be had on a freebie up for grabs so make sure you keep and eye out on social media.

For the first time in my life Glossybox actually disappointed me this month, although, if you look at other beauty boxes such as Birchbox, I thought they were equally as disappointing.
With a theme of Winter Warmers I expected so much more. Maybe a little makeup or a full blown skincare routine to look after you in the harsh weather. To have a box full of mismatched items I was most disappointed. The card insert that lies just under the lid filled me with such hope and excitement when I opened it. I felt the contents just didn’t really match the month of meet my expectations.
I hope for a ‘wowing’ box for December in true Glossybox fashion though.
