Wow I haven't really posted in awhile, sorry! (Edit: Just realised it's only been like three days! Ha! Feels much longer!) I know I've left longer gaps before but I'm trying to blog consistently now and I've been busy working (late closes this week) or enjoying the Sun! While it lasted anyway, its back to being cloudy Swansea now :(. So! I thought it was about time to review May's Glossy Box! While it was still May, and today is the last day to do it! I actually took these photos when I got my box, but waited till I tried everything first. So here we go!
Since Glossy Box were celebrating their first birthday, they included a few extra things with the box, in it's normal box (pale pink) but decorated the paper with make up and cupcakes, which is cute. They've also been doing competitions on their facebook page every day, which I didn't really take advantage of, oh well.
This is what the inside of the box looked, I didn't include the info card that always comes with it though. I was really excited when I saw what was inside, they'd given me eight! (or nine even) items instead of five!
They'd given me two perfume samples, two face masks, a mirror, balloon, false eyelashes, hair oil and body wash! All in one box, I love birthday boxes! <3 I think its safe to say I loved this box more than Aprils!
Lolita Lempricka, Eau de Parfum & Si Lolita - The Eau de Parfume was a fresh floral scent while the Si Lolita was more spicy. I liked both of them, and loved the packaging, it was cute, but I think I'll be asking for the Eau de Parfum for Christmas!
Osmo, Berber Oil Hair Treatment - I tried this on both wet and dry hair and have liked both results. It comes in a thick tinted red oil, and you barely need anything for your hair. I made the mistake of putting to much in but you only need a little. It makes your hair feel soft, and it doesn't look greasy or wet or anything like you think it would. When I put it on dry hair it also helped smooth it down and it had a lovely scent to it.
Nobel Isle, Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel - This reminded me of previous bath products, like the Molton Brown shower gel from March's Harrods Box with the quality and the packaging. It was thick and luxurious, and really did smell like Summer!
Apivta, Express Beauty Masks - Hmm not so sure on these. I'm not sure if I did it correctly, but it was interesting. I had it in Honey and the mask was thick and creamy. I put it on my face and it didn't really do anything except maybe heat up (but I had just come out of a shower on a warm day, so might have just been me!) It just stayed a sticky mess on my face, and didn't really feel like a face mask to me. But it did make my skin feel nice afterwards.
Eldora, False Eyelashes - These are the only things I haven't tried yet, as I am rubbish with false eyelashes. I have about three pairs but I've never worn them out! They look really nice though, I know they come in different styles and I had thick lashes with black diamante's on the lash line, but they're subtle. It does come with glue, and I am going to try these on Saturday which is my boyfriends birthday/Uni Society awards event, so fingers crossed they'll stay on!
And as I mentioned above I had a Balloon which I blew up sometime after these photos and a mirror which now lives in my bag! Oh and before I forget, they also give us a free Parisian shopper bag if you buy any Lolita Lempicka purchase of 50ml+ while stocks last if you pop into House or Fraser online or in store. I don't have any money to buy perfume atm so I'll have to give that one a miss sadly. Though I really am tempted since the bag looks lovely.
