Two posts in one day you lucky things!
Yesterday i received the May Glossybox* which actually happens to be the one year anniversary Glossybox too! If you can scope back i actually reviewed the first Glossybox back in May last year!
The thing with Glossybox is that i absolutely love the element of surprise, it really is such a good feeling! and with Glossybox that is what you are getting every month! I really dont think it is a lose lose situation because even though you spend your £10 not knowing what goodies you will receive but each and every time, the packaging and contents themselves are worth above and beyond that amount!
Lets have a little look at the products in my box.
Noble Isle is a new British bath and body brand inspired by the natural an cultural riches of the British Isles. The Summer Rising bath & shower gel has a lovely scent, that is familar to one that i have tried before i just cant put my finger on it and contains elderflower and gooseberry. I love shower gel samples, they are so handy for travelling and love the cute little bottle this comes with. This is a 75ml generous sample size with 250ml retailing for £20.
♥ Lolita Lempicka L'Eau en Blanc & Si Lolita ♥
Fragrance samples, some people love them and some people loathe them. I personally love them especially if they are combined with other amazing products. I love them because i get to smell scents that i wouldnt personally try or pick up myself. However, neither of these are to my particular tastes and smell a bit too 'old' for my liking. Having said that its a pretty pricey perfume with the 50ml of the L'Eau en Blanc costing £49.
♥ Uniq one All In One Hair Treatment ♥
I love these handy little hair treatment sprays that pop up quite regularly in monthly beauty boxes as it lets you try new goodies for your hair without shelling out a fortune in the first place. The Uniq one All in one hair treatment is to help repair dry and damaged hair, to keep frizz at bay and to be used as a heat protectant amongst other things. It sounds like a pretty multipurpose product which i am looking forward to trying. Cheap Smells actually stock this for £9.95 for a 150ml bottle so if it is any good i shall be buying it for myself.
I do love lashes! I love receiving lashes in beauty boxes even more! I love boxes that contain more make up than skin care so lashes are always a winner. These are by Lets Go whose lashes i have never heard of or seen before although they are part of the Nouveau beauty group. The lashes i received were the Lets Go Tease Strip lashes in No 2 that cost £8.95 on their website. I will be wearing these on a night out tomorrow so i shall report back!
The Weleda brand pops up quite frequently in beauty boxes. I had to google a little about this one as the box and bottle are actually in German. After translating the weleda website i found that this is in fact a rose scented body lotion. It contains wild rose oil to help moisturise skin and retain elasticity. Not a product i am particularly overwhelmed with if im honest. A full size 100ml bottle retails for £11.95 making this 10ml sample worth around £1.20.
♥ Glossybox Compact Mirror ♥
As its their Birthday they added another little product this month in the form of a small compact mirror that has a magnified and normal side so will definitely come in handy.
Can i just add a sidenote saying how much i love the packaging? This month Glossybox have seriously gone above and beyond! The gorgeous tissue paper, special edition ribbon it is just all so lovely!
Did you receive this months Box? What are your thoughts?
