Happy Birthday GlossyBox: May GlossyBox ♥


I don't know about you, but i love getting a new beauty box every month! Its a way of trying new products sometimes from brands you'd never even heard of before. Its also a way to try new things on a budget as with high end products, i hate buying something expensive and it not working for me! So now i always try to test products out first before i take the plunge!


The beauty box i order is GlossyBox. GlossyBox is £10 per box, plus post and packaging. They normally come in a cute little pastel pink box with black and pink flowers on the inside (quick confession: i keep my old GlossyBoxes to store skincare in!). Now, this month GlossyBox turned 2! Which is great (and i had the luck to win one of their competitions too, woo hoo!) and over the last few months I've been receiving the box I've always been happy with the products. 


I'm very curious to try out the Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara. I loved the Lip blush of their i received in a previous GlossyBox so i hope this works as well as that! The Headline Colours Nail polish  in Glamour goes down well as I'm always happy to see a nail polish to add to my ever growing collection! The La Roche Posay Anthelios XL is a product I'm very much looking forward to trying, as I'm a pale girl, in the summer high SPF is a must for me and it says its great for sensitive skin, so I'll have to put that to the test. Next is the Beautiful Movement Mixing medium, I was a bit disappointed just by the size of the product, it's so small, only 2.5g! Stone beauty's Jasmine Body Lotion is next which is a pretty good sample size which smells so fresh that i really can't wait to try it out! Lastly, GlossyBox added in their own little treat from their own brand which is a book of 16 travel size nail files! Perfect to pop in the handbag!

All in all, the box was alright this month but i personally found last months box a lot more exciting, at least on a first impressions basis! 


What did you think of the 2nd Birthday Box? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,

  2. Your box was so different to mine. You definitely got more full sized samples compared to my box. But I agree with you, last months box was more exciting. I think for their Birthday box they could have gone all out and these boxes didn't quite get there. Still good boxes just not WOW! if that makes any sort of sense? Haha.

    1. Luck of the draw i guess!
      I know what you mean, i've never been annoyed with what i've received in a box but this didn't have the wow factor!

  3. Still waiting for my box but yours looks pretty good, definitely not as good as last months but I guess that would be difficult to repeat!
