January GlossyBox!

January's GlossyBox has taken a romantic twist. Since Valintines Day is around the corner, this months beauty items are all inspired by the special occassion; including the pretty pink box and 5 beauty products to pamper yourself with on the day.
So let's see what's inside :)

(1) Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Midnight Blue - £9.50 Full Size - Code: Enter Glossy in the comments box to get a free gift with any purchase. Expires - 1/3/12 - Get a handle on your eyeliner for precise definition and intense colour with a long-lasting finish. I was a bit disappointed that I didn't get one of the other shades. Having said this, the pencil is soft and smooth and smudges well. The pigmentation is also fabulous for this price. My only worry would be that after a long day, the pencil would end up all aroud your eyes. 
(2) Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream - £46.50 for 50ml Full Size - Infusing skin with firming benefits that are imediate and long-lasting. The thinner of the two Clarins creams in this months box. It felt a little greasy when I rubbed it into my hand. I'm not sold that it wouldn't bring out a shine on oily skin. However, I have yet to try this product in depth.
(3) Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream - £48 for 50ml Full Size - Clarins intensive night-time skin renewal complex. This cream is thicker and felt nicer when I massaged it into the skin. I felt that it absorbed better and shall try this out in more depth to review for you. Both of the Clarins face creams smelt amazing.
(4) FAB Gentle Body Wash - £10 for 226.8g Full Size - The ultimate travel companion for all skin types that provides irritant-free cleansing and hydration. This did not smell nice at all. Although it is good that this product is paraben free, fragrance free and does not use harsh chemicals, I would not want to smell like this product all day. It was more difficult to blend than the Clarins cream, due to its thicker consistancy.
(5) Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer - Dewy Finish - £29 for 30ml Full Size - Code: 33% off at with GLOSSYPR. Expires 31/3/12 - Oil free primer egnites a radiant glow, powered by light-enhancing minerals. This is not for me. I was quite suprised when i squirted a bit onto my wrist, that it had a skin colour. I was expecting it to be rather pale or even colourless. When I started to massage it in, it wasn't blending very well. The primer looked rather orange. You have to blend this one in depth. I am yet to try this on my face.
