Glossybox May Anniversary Edition!

So as many of you know Glossybox turned one this month and so there was a lot of speculation about what they would do to celebrate after previous boxes like the Harrods box didn't quite add up to some people's expectations. I'm uploading this late again because I know how tempting it is to look at spoilers and it's never good when you end up feeling disappointed as you've seen several other bloggers with more exciting products.

So first impressions, they've gone back to the classic pink box which I absolutely love and the tissue paper has a really pretty pattern on it and my box seemed to be really full so I couldn't wait to rip into it and see what I had got!

I was quite relieved to find that I didn't get the gold gel eyeliner lots of people had been moaning about on twitter because there was really no use for it that I could think of. One thing I really liked was the balloon and compact mirror they included as the mirror is perfect for keeping in my handbag and who doesn't like balloons!

The actual products I received in my box were:

Noble  Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel (Full Size 250ml £20.00) (find me here!)
This is a 75ml sample which is quite a decent size and for some reason I really love the packaging, especially the logo of flowers coming out of a bath tub. Shower gel is not the most exciting product but this smells like a mixture of grass and oranges which is actually quite nice so I think I will save this one to take on my summer holiday :)

Lolita Lempicka L'Eau en Blanc & Si Lolita (Full size 100ml around £65)(find me here!)
I really love getting perfume samples because I never have enough time to go around and sniff them all in the shops! I really like Si Lolita which says 'the secret spicy freshness of Sweet Pea' it's a really lovely scent, usually I'd say perfumes with spice in are more for winter but this one is just fresh and and i can't get enough of it! L'Eau en Blanc is very sweet smelling perfect for summer as it has raspberries in it so I'm going to try and make both last! Also their website is gorgeous and so pretty!!

Weleda Face Cream/Body Milk (Full size 30ml £13.95)(find me here!)
With the help of google translate I found that I actually received the Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion, the sample size is 10ml so is actually a third of the full size which means it should last quite a while. They claim this is great to wear under makeup as a lighter option to a day cream or can be used simply as a face mask ,I think I will try this as it's not overly perfumed despite the rose scent.

Uniqone All in one hair treatment (full size 150ml £13.99) (find me here!)
This product claims to repair dry & damaged hair, control frizz and shine, protect from heat, improve silkiness and smoothness, protect hair colour, make brushing and straightening easier, detangles, pro-longs hairstyles, prevents split ends and add body. did you get all that? well if this works I'll be amazed so i will definitely be trying this one! it smells alright too, pretty similar to what i call 'the haircare product smell' the sample is 9ml so hopefully will be enough to get a few uses out of it!

Let's Go Lashes Strip Lashes (£8.95 a strip) (find me here!)
I got the 'Tease' lashes which i am very pleased with! I really needed some fake lashes for a party I'm going to soon but i was begrudging paying for them as I'm not very good with falsies but these are perfect! The lash band is not actually black so these will look more natural and I can't wait to use them! The company not only also sell Amy Child's lashes but are part of Noveau Beauty Group who house HD Brows the brand that sparked a whole new fashion of brows, the worst, undoubtedly being the 'scouse brow' so this is possibly my favourite item from the whole box! Also if you recall a while a go there was a video on glossybox's youtube with a company called Blink+go - well Let's Go is just their new name!

So that was everything that was in my Glossybox this month, I was genuinely really pleased with this box! I think I will probably use every single product, which is why I'm going to start doing another glossybox post, how i used the products and what i thought of them, so let me know if you would be interested in seeing that kind of review!

speak soon - little becca xx


  1. Errrm I don't think the Weleda is a face cream, if you type in 'Wildrosen Pflegemilch' into google it comes up with this page that you can translate. It says its the Wild Rose Body Lotion.

  2. Oh my mistake! thankyou so much i'll stop using it on my face haha! xxx

    1. Yeah thought you might want to know :P Shame it isn't a face cream, I would of much rather preferred that.
