Happy Birthday GlossyBox!

So it's GlossyBox's 1st anniversary this month and because of this the May GlossyBox has some cute additions. Including a bright pink balloon and a compact mirror!

I loved the paper this month's products came in, it was really cute. Anyway onto the products themselves, I have to say I really liked this month's box, I know a lot of people have been disappointed but i'm quite excited to try them all and I have already tried a couple of them! So onto the run down:

Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath and Shower Gel - First off I like the packaging, its simple but nice, also a great size, it will be good for travelling. The scent is a little bit masculine I think, it reminds me a lot of the Re-charge Black Pepper by Molton Brown, I will try it as it smells quite refreshing but I feel my boyfriend might end up with this but that's okay I know he'll appreciate it!

Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfum & Si Lolita - I love both of these scents, although i'm leaning more towards Si Lolita, they're both really light and summery. I know some people don't like perfume samples but I think they are great, I love being able to just pop them in my bag. The full sizes of these are expensive £65 and £63 eeep, but they are really nice so one of them may be a birthday list item!

Apivita Express Beauty Masks - I've already used one of the sachets and I really liked it, they have a lovely fresh scent, to me it smells like cucumber with a hint of green tea. It left my skin feeling cleansed and it didn't dry it at all. I was slightly scared by the tingling sensation but luckily I didn't break out or have a reaction so I assume that is normal! They are £3.50 per sachet and I would definitely buy more of these!

Osmo Berber Oil Hair Treatment - This is my favourite product from the box, oh my gosh I love it! I've used it two days running now on the ends of my hair and it makes it so soft! Its been so hot the past few days and the ends of my hair tend to dry out pretty quick so this has been a lifesaver! It doesn't have a strong scent either which is a plus and doesn't feel sticky or greasy! The full size is £19.99 which is a bit steep but I'm seriously considering purchasing it as I love it!

Eldora False Eyelashes - Okay so I've never used false lashes and to be honest I probably never will, I tried one of these on last night and I just hate the way false lashes look on me, I do really like them on other people just not on me! I don't know if anyone else feels the same? Anyway my sister said she would take these off my hands and seems pretty happy with them so that's alright! These are £3.90 normally which to me doesn't sound to be considering if you're careful with them you can reuse them!

So all in all I really liked this month's box and I loved the anniversary themed items as well, the mirror is competing with my Marc Jacobs compact for space in my bag now! I'm happy, what did everyone else think of this month's box?


  1. Looks like you got some great products! Really cute that it was their 1 yr and included a balloon.

  2. It seems the products varied quite a bit this month, this is the second review I've seen and the other girl got totally different products - mine were different completely again!

    I'm gonna review mine next week.

    I wish I'd got lashes, instead I got the HD Brows brow beater


    1. Yeah i've seen some other posts and the products were completely different, more varied that other boxes I think! Ah thats a shame! x

  3. I would love the eyelashes but seems like a good box all round!!
    By the way, I just tagged you in a tag so would be lovely if you could look and take part :)


    1. haha I know a lot of people would, yeah I was pretty happy with it to be honest. Ohh cool, I'll definitely do the tag :) x

  4. I was a bit disappointed with the box to be honest. I did LOVE the scent of the perfume sample (especially Si Lolita) but no one product jumped out at me/looked to be full sized. Also, I NEVER wear fake eyelashes too (birthday present for friends?!) Maybe I'm expecting too much. xx

    1. Yeah it was slightly disappointing to not see a full size product, especially as it was an anniversary box. I guess the eyelashes would be considered full size, although i'll never use them haha, yeah thats a good idea! I don't think so it seems a lot of people were disappointed with this box from reviews I've seen! xx

  5. Looks like a great box - and the balloon is really cute
