Glossybox - January

These boxes are definitely coming around far too quick for my liking. It only seems like yesterday I was opening my Sleek palette from the December box. I think the Detox theme this month is very fitting as I know that a lot of people are doing Dryathlon, starting diets and trying to get healthy, for as long as possible.

At first I wasn't sure about this month's choices but as I actually got the products out and read about them a little bit more I think that there are some really lovely products that I want to try out.
Duck Island Limited - Body Lotion
This little bottle is so cute, I really like the packaging. This natural body lotion is meant to help you relax after a shower or bath. I like the texture, it melts into the skin beautifully and feels luxurious, but I haven't tried it properly yet to give a full review.
Elemis Fresh Skin - Skin Glow Facial Exfoliator
I have wanted to try something from the Elemis brand for quite a while now but didn't really know what to go for. This is a really nice starting point I think. This exfoliator is aimed at younger people who want to prevent their skin from ageing as well as enhancing radiance.
Jason Lips Bee Healthier
The only full sized product this month which retails for under £2, was the product I was most disappointed with. Not due to the retail price, but just because I thought a lip balm was a bit boring, and to some level I do still think that.  Now, I've only tried this out a couple of times but I already love it. I haven't tried the Burts Bees range (or something like that) but I can imagine it to be similar to that brand's lip balm as it contains natural ingredients including beeswax. I've already put it in my handbag so that I can use it throughout the day.
Monu - Aromatic Mask
I love a good mask and think this is the perfect product for the theme, I think Glossybox has learnt their lesson after the 'relaxation' month (or whatever that was supposed to be). This is a clay mask so has to be washed off with water and not just pealed like some others. I personally prefer the peal off ones but I'm not complaining, I think I will enjoy getting in the bath and putting this bad boy on.
Premae Skincare - Balance Rescue Face Tonique
Probably the product I am most excited to try out, this toner mattifies combination skin as well as hydrating it. I have a little bit of an oily t-zone so if this works I will definitely be adding it to my evening makeup routine.
Glossybox Sleep Mask
I actually enjoy looking forward to the crazy extras that Glossybox have started to include every now and again. I think this is really cute and adds that finishing touch to this month's box.

I've noticed that there is a mix of products this month, so if you have different products let me know, I would love to see what everyone else received.
