My First Glossybox: May 2015

My first ever beauty box from Glossybox has finally arrived and here is what I received in this month's box!


Thank you Glossybox for the warm welcome and the super cute free shopper bag as an extra treat! I, of course, wanted to try out all products before telling you guys about them and here's my verdict!


Let's start with my favourite: 
Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara | £2.29


Even though this is the cheapest item in the box, it has for sure left a good impression on me. The packaging is beautiful and delicate. The consistency of this mascara is also really lovely and the wand reminds me of Maybelline Lash Sensational, which is my favourite mascara of all time, so this had big shoes to fill and it did so surprisingly well. With a few coats this mascara lengthens, curls and volumizes my lashes and is the one I've been wearing non-stop ever since.

MeMeMe Enchanted Eyes Dual Ended Eye Wand | £6.95


A lot of people weren't too keen on this product when they gave us a sneak peek last month, but I personally was super excited. I had never heard of this boutique brand before but the quality of the "wand" has caught my eye (literally). I have already worn both ends of this highly pigmented liner and having blue eyes myself, these beautiful blue shades certainly brighten up my look. This spring/summer I'm going for bolder colours and this is what perfect timing looks like!


From left to right:

Etre Belle Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel | £15.93
A refreshing moisturiser for instant rescue when my skin needs a little (read a LOT) TLC. I tested this out during the weekend after sitting in the sun all day Sunday, and it soothed my post-sun skin really well. I also applied this before my make-up routine and it provided me with that healthy glow we all want! Kind of expensive for such a small full-sized product but perfect for that summer holiday I have coming up. 

SASS Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate | £12 
A bit of a weird one, but extremely useful if you think about it. My skin isn't very sensitive post shave or wax, but I like that this product reduces hair regrowth and this will come in handy this summer. I massaged this after shaving and whilst it does sooth the skin, I'm still waiting to see when a shave will be due next. Fingers crossed! 

Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam | £7.95 
Again, not a crowd pleaser amongst the Glossybox subscribers, but I find this to be a good alternative for dry shampoos (not a fan of that stuff myself). You do need to dose this correctly as it can potentially leave your hair look greasier than before, but if done right, a really good product that leaves my hair felling clean, soft and fresh without the need of water.


All in all I'm really glad I signed up to Glossybox as it gives me the opportunity to try stuff I never would have otherwise. I was having doubts about this box after reading a few reviews online, but it has not disappointed me in the slightest. I love the packaging and the products range, and even though I intend to sign up to other beauty boxes to see what else is on the market, Glossybox is the one I will be keeping for a few months to see how it turns out, but I have high hopes already! Plus, we get Flash Tattoos next month just in time for festival season and am I the only one who thinks these are actually really cool?

Are you signed up for any beauty boxes? Let me know!

xoxo

  2. It's like there's something for everyone in glossybox, I'm on the fence about signing up for them but they do seem to include some great products.

    1. I was a bit like that too, but I thought what the hell...its only £10 a month :) If you do wish to sign up, there are lots of options so I'd check which one is more "you". Thanks for the visit beautiful :)

  3. Ooo such a great review as always! I love the sound of the Aloe Vera Gel, as my skin doesn't seem to like the sun at all, but some of the suncreams can feel a little heavy. The post shaving spray does sound a little strange, but I'm glad it exists! Think about it - men have aftershave and all these post-shave skin care products which women don't seem to have even though they shave just as often! x
