First look!

Minus 417 Foot Nourishing Cream (50ml, $9)
Relaxing and refreshing cream enriched with moisturizer, for softening dry and cracked soles. Helps relieve dryness, leaves your feet feeling fresh and prevents unpleasant odors. 
I can't remember the last time, if ever, I received foot cream from a box. It smells great and works well.

Emite Make Up Diamond Heart Base Primer (15ml, $12.25)
With Diamond Heart Primer you provide your skin with a beautiful, healthy glow that gives a smoothing effect. You can use it on its own to create glow or as a primer under your foundation or BB Cream.
Yikes! My tube leaked in transit. Thankfully it wasn't a huge mess. I like this primer. It works well on its own, which is great since I don't wear foundation.

Royal Apothic Creme to Go in Venetian Grove (1.25oz, $10)
Made with micronized safflower oil to deeply hydrate while still being light to the touch and leaving a zero grease factor on the hands. The scent of the Rose Leaf blended with Currant, Plum, Orange, and Clove gives this fragrance a unique bite.
I love the vintage metal tube and graphics. This lotion smells great too and I love the non-greasy feeling.

MeMeMe Lip Glide in Playful Peach ($12.50)
Formulated with a matte-velvet finish Lip Glide offers ultra-high pigment for bold, statement lips! Lip Glide has been designed with the just-perfect thickness to the pencil and tip to allow an effortless & precise application.
I love this colour and I'm so happy to receive something so wearable and not red. I'm sick of red!

Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment (2oz, $1.50)
Product buildup causes hair to look dull and lifeless. Lemon Rinse™ gentle clarifying treatment removes dulling product buildup and returns hair to its natural glory. Active lemon extracts gently cleanse and tone, rapidly restoring weightless body and shine.When I first saw this I thought it was a facial toner... turns out it's a hair treatment. It smells lovely so I can't wait to try it.

My January Glossybox included five products, with a retail value at $45.25 US. This box cost $26 US, including shipping (in Canadian, that's just under $38 today). All the products are deluxe samples or travel size items. I really like the foot cream, hand cream, primer, and lip pencil. The sample sizes are generous, the products are useful and interesting, and the value is pretty good. I think I'm most happy to not receive skincare or anti-aging products!

Use promo code VOLUMIZE and a full size Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara valued at $24 will be included in your first box. Code is valid for month of January, while supplies last.
