My Christmas Edition Glossybox Australia

I was expecting my Christmas Glossybox after coming back from interstate and look what arrived at my doorstep...

December Glossybox

It's the December Glossybox with the contents all wrapped up so delicately and looking gorgeous! This is my second Glossybox (to see my November Glossybox click here) and I'm so excited about the products I received!

Contents in the December Glossybox

Here is a list of the products I received in the December Glossybox:

Clinique Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturiser
sample 7ml worth $12.60 (full size 50ml rrpA$90)
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray
sample 29ml worth $5 (full size 103ml rrpA$17.99)  
Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria Fragrance
sample ~1ml worth ~$2, (rrpA$60 for 30ml, $90 for 50ml, $120 for 100ml)
Gorgeous Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Scarlette
full size rrpA$25
Tigi Haircare Manipulator by Bed Head
full size 57ml rrpA$23.95

December Glossybox Total worth ~$69

All in all, the contents I received in the December Glossybox well exeeded the subscription fee of $14.95. I'm happy that I received a Gorgeous cosmetics lip liner as I've been lemming for a crimson red lip liner since a few weeks ago. Clinique moisturisers are kind to my skin and I'm excited to try the Turnaround Overnight Radiance moisturiser. I've got so many hair products at home that it takes forever to finish it! The Tigi Bed Head Manipulator looks interesting so I'll probably try it out soon to see if it suits the rainy weather here in Brisbane. I also like the CK purse spray vial as I find these handy for my handbag. The fruity floral scent isn't too overpowering and there are notes of raspberry, peach blossom, jasmine and musk just to name a few.
 I was quite surprised to receive a hair product for people with blonde hair as I didn't mention that I have blonde hair in my beauty profile. So, it doesn't seem like Glossybox has yet to provide members with tailored boxes. I posed this small issue to Glossybox customer service and received a reply the same day. I was told that the beauty profile I provided in my Glossybox account will be used to customise the boxes in future. I was also told that a replacement product has been sent to me to make up for the Sheer Blonde product. This is the first time I had to approach customer service and so far I'm satisfied with their prompt reply and understanding.

From what I have heard, there has been an influx of complaints regarding the Sheer Blonde product as most people received this product in their box and they do not have blonde hair. Despite only one product in my box was obviously not suitable for me, I am still pleased about the remaining full size and deluxe sized products I received. 

I received my replacement product from Glossybox and here it is!

What did you receive in your December Glossybox?
Are you happy with the customer service and contents in the box?
