GlossyBox May

GlossyBox May: First Anniversary Edition


Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel
Normally I am quite underwhelmed when I receive shower gels in beauty boxes, but this one is so sweet that I can't help but like it. The bottle is really cute, and it is a fair size too, so it is perfect for travelling. The scent is really lovely - it says it includes elderflower, gooseberry, and orange blossom, but to me it just smells of lemongrass, which I like. It definitely does have a summery feeling to it, so overall I'm pretty happy with this product.
Full size: 250ml = £20
Sample size: 75ml = £6 approx.

Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfum & Si Lolita
Another thing I don't like receiving in boxes is tiny perfume samples, so I was incredibly disappointed when I saw these two little bottles looking quite sorry for themselves when I opened the box. This certainly does not feel like something that should be in a "luxury" sample beauty box. Although the little cards they came with were very cute, the size of the bottles are so small and you can really only use them a few times before they run out. The scents are okay, but nothing I would actually buy.
Full size: 50ml = £43 each approx.
Sample size: 0.8ml = £0.68 each approx. (I hope that is just my awful maths!!)

Apivita Express Beauty Masks with Honey
I was very excited to see these in my box, as they could not have come at a better time! I am currently searching for a new face mask so I am happy to get to try this one out, and I love the idea of them containing honey. Normally I'm not a fan of receiving sachets of things because they feel quite cheap, but these are full size and you can use one sachet more than once. They claim to help with the first appearance of wrinkles, and hydrate normal/dry skin, which isn't really best suited to me, but I will definitely enjoy giving myself a pamper with them.
Full size: 2 x 8ml = £2.80 (I have no idea why the GlossyBox card says they cost £3.50)

Osmo Berber Oil Hair Treatment
Hair products, yay! This is a treatment oil for dry, damaged hair, which also reduces drying time and makes your hair shiny and smooth. What more could you need? I have used it twice, once on damp hair and once on dry hair, and I love the results! My hair does dry faster and is super soft and shiny, and as an added bonus it smells yummy! I will definitely be purchasing this in full size when it runs out.
Full size: 100ml = £19.99
Sample size: 10ml = £2-£5 (you can actually buy this size)

Eldora False Eyelashes in D144
Haven't we seen these somewhere before? Yes, we have - but that's okay, we all love lashes! These are wonderfully elaborate (perhaps too elaborate?) winged lashes with a few very subtle bits of glitter towards the outer edges. I am thrilled to have received these, but it will take some real balls to pull these off - not an easy thing to do, especially when you wear glasses like I do! But, I am more than up for the challenge, and will keep you posted on how these work out for me...
Full size: £4.50

Favourite product: Osmo Berber Oil Hair Treatment.
Least favourite product: Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfums
 Overall thoughts: A very underwhelming box (especially for an anniversary box!) but some of it is okay.
Overall worth: £19 approx. (hmm...)
