This month's GLOSSYBOX definitely held a wide variety of samples to try, but I'm not over-the-moon excited about any of the samples this month. I have a sensitive nose (strong scents give me headaches) and, unfortunately, the scent of the perfume, bath salts, and bath & shower oil are all a little strong for my liking. The mark. lipstick is nice, but the color reminds me a lot of the Kryolan for Glossybox lipstick from the September box and the ModelCo. lipstick from the October box (all are very similar neutral rosy shades-pretty and wearable, but a little boring month after month). The Zoya polish is a fantastic addition, though I do already own a few similar silver glitters in my large polish collection. The inclusion of a JewelMint piece was fun and festive, though I expect a lot of folks will be receiving pieces that aren't exactly their style (which is my case here with this ring - it's a little more earthy and Southwestern than my usual retro, ladylike style).
All in all, I do think this month had a nice variety of products. Unfortunately none of them happen to be entirely my cup of tea.
