Glamourbox's Secret Santa Unboxing

Hello everyone! As promised, here is my unboxing post for the Glamourbox's December box. I'm so sorry but I have been sick for the past 2 days since I attended a wedding in Tagaytay so I wasn't really able to go to work or blog. I am still sick and suffering severe colds and cough, but duty calls and I wanted to keep my promise of posting every Wednesdays and Sundays.

When Glamourbox announced that they will be opening subscriptions for a Secret Santa box I immediately subscribed. I feel bad I wasn't able to get the Beauty SOS box, so I made sure that I can get this box, I just consider it as a Christmas gift to myself. :)
Let's take a look at each and one of them shall we?

Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream in Pink Beige (Sample Size 3 ml)
Full Size 50 ml - ₱855
I have never really tried CC Creams before because they are not stand alone products, unlike BB Creams that you can use in lieu of your foundation. Straight from the tube it is white, but adjust to your color when blended. I am excited to try if it will work.

Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi-Puff (Full Size)
Full Size 25g - ₱265
Oh this marshmallow inspired sponge is so tempting to eat! I haven't really tried it yet, but probably I'll do a review about it. It says its ideal for cream-type products, so I'll be trying it with my Naturactor Concealer and will let you know.

Avon Fragrance in Only Imagine (Full Size)
Full Size 50 ml - ₱1,500
I was surprised to see this full size perfume from Avon. The packaging is so girly and adorable, and the scent is sweet with a hint of muskiness, which is my kind of scent. It tends to get too strong when applied a lot, so I just use 1 spray when I use this.

The Cream Factory Bath Cream in Goat's Milk and Cinnamon (Sample Size 7.5 fl. oz.)
Full Size 26 fl oz - ₱699
In my previous post I raved about how I love my Cream Factory in Goat's Milk and Witch Hazel so I was excited to see another Cream Factory Bath Cream in this month's box, but when I saw that it has Cinnamon I was sad, because I hate the scent of cinnamon. :( I am not sure if I can use this, I wish I got another variant, like the one with Jojoba Oil or another Witch Hazel.

Zen Zest Kitchen Fragrance in Choco Cappucino (Sample Size 50 ml)
Full Size 250 ml - ₱250
This smells really sweet and nice, but I will be using this in our room instead of the kitchen. The scent is not too overpowering and it effectively makes the air clean and smell fresher.


Paula's Choice Skincare Samples
I have heard good things about this brand, and I am excited to try out the exfoliant since it has AHA and Glycolic Acid, good for acneic skin.

Fabulosa Necklace
This necklace is adorable! I love the gift box charm/pendant, which is perfect for the holidays.

10% Off Strip It Voucher
I am not sure if I will be able to use this, since I haven't tried waxing before and I am scared to be honest. But we'll see.

Overall, I am inlove with this box! What I love about Glamourbox is that they really give you items to try out, plus the theme is really to make you feel that Christmas is in the air. I really hope that they release boxes more often.

Speaking of which, we only have 17 days to go before Christmas! Time travels super fast, and I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet! Oh I think I need to do a wishlist too, just in case Santa reads my blog. LOL!

Anyway, thanks for reading ladies! I already got my December BDJ Box and I will be posting my unboxing post by Wednesday. Stay tuned Pinay Beauties! Goodluck.

    Love your necklace! Super in season and very dainty! I hope Fabulosa makes these available too so I can get one of that for myself. :)

      I don't like Cinnamon, so sad. :( The scent was too overpowering for me. But you should try it, they are really good.
