Glossybox Limited-Edition Holiday Box

Hey Sirens!! How is the New Year treating you? I just got my laptop back last night, so today I am happy to present to you the Limited-Edition Gold Holiday Box from Glossybox!!
Gold Holiday Box
I like the design of this box-the gold and black packaging is perfect for the holidays!! I will definitely be reusing this box to store my beauty items!
First look inside the box!
Sneak peak to the goodies!
Kora Organics Clay Purifying Mask
Full Size (3.3 fl oz)-$53.00 Value!
At first I was excited to receive this product because I love masks, cute packaging, and full size products that I would never buy for myself!! I tried out the mask right away and noticed it wasn't as thick as any other mask I've ever tried. I finally consulted the Cosmetics Cop and was surprised to find out the product was from Victoria Secret model, Miranda Kerr's own skincare line! But more importantly I saw that this mask is full of irritating ingredients that can worsen oily skin and trigger breakouts! What a disappointment! I expected a lot more from this product-there goes a third of the value of the box!!

Philip B Chai Latte Soul & Body Wash
Full Size (2 oz)-$8.00 Value!

I initially thought this was a deluxe size product due to it's smaller size, but it's actually a full size. I've used this a few times now and really like the scent-definitely a product I'd use in the fall or winter. You can really smell the chai in this body wash and it just makes you want to grab a cup!!
So Susan Luminizer
Full Size (0.53 oz)-$40.00 Value!
This is such a pretty highlighter-I'm excited to give it a try! The only downside to this product is I feel you don't get much of it for the price!

Bodyography Lip Pencil (Crimson)
Full Size (0.04 oz)-$13.00 Value!

I haven't used a lip liner in a while, but I think this would go well with a lot of the red lip products I've been getting from my other subscription boxes lately.
Beauty Addicts Lip Addiction Lip Gloss
Full Size (0.19 oz)-$17.00 Value!

This is quite a pretty pearl pink lip gloss! It is definitely a shade I would wear, and I like that it contains vitamins and peptides!!
Nuxe Fondant Body Scrub
Deluxe Size (1.6 oz)-$6.68 Value!

I love body scrubs and this one was no exception. This was the only item that wasn't full size, but it's a good sample size. I thought it worked well and didn't have a bad smell.
Butter London Nail Polish (Henley Regatta)
Full Size (0.4 fl oz)-$15.00 Value!

I wanted to polish my nails right away with this color since I just find blue and green glitters absolutely gorgeous-they remind me of mermaids!! But I found out it's too sheer, so it'd be better to use as a glitter topper. I will have to see what I have to use as underwear for this, so I'll be making a separate post with my swatches!
Cost: $50.00 (or FREE with a 12 month subscription to Glossybox using promo code GOLD)
**This box is no longer available for purchase at this time**
Value: $152.68!!

Overall, I thought this was a great box! I was even accidently sent a duplicate Gold box, which Glossybox allowed me to keep! I thought that was so awesome of them. Since I don't need two of every item, I will be saving the extra box to give to my sister later this year for her birthday!

Also, to further iterate how much I love Glossybox, I wanted to share with you that I have been selected as a winner of one of the GLOSSYBOX 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways prizes!! I don't know which prize I have won just yet, but I will show you all as soon as I get it!!

What do you think of this box?
Do you ever purchase the Limited-Edition boxes? If so, which has been your favorite?
