Happy Birthday Glossybox.





Happy Birthday Glossybox! 

This month marks the 1st Anniversary of the little pink box landing on our doorsteps, and Glossybox are feeling in the party mood, including a pink balloon (posed ridiculously by me here) and a cute compact mirror that has landed straight into my handbag. 

So, what's in my Glossybox this month? 

Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel (Full Size: 250ml £20.00)
Lolita Lempicka L'Eau en Blanc & Eau en Parfum (Full Size: £65 100ml)
Apivita Express Beauty Mask Moisturising & Nourishing Mask with Honey (Full Size: £3.50 per sachet)
HD Brows Brow Beater (Full Size: £29.95)
Berber Oil Hair Treatment (£19.99 100ml)

Compared to my rave about last months box, I wasn't immediately shouting from the rooftops about this box. But, on closer inspection there are a few gems. I was immidiately excited about the HD Brows box that   was nestled in the corner, but my information card told me it was one thing 'grow baby grow' and described an eye cream...I got Brow Beater, work that one out! 

I'm excited to try the Brow Beater but time will tell whether it really is more than a glorified clear mascara. 
The winner in this box has to be the Berber Oil. I'm a sucker for hair/skin/body oil at the moment and the fact that it smells like pic n mix was the icing on the synthetic cherry scented cake. 

There seems to be mixed opinions about perfume samples in Glossybox but I personally don't mind them as they're useful to sling in my gym bag for an emergency scent. Neither Lolita Fragrance hit any high notes with me, but I do prefer the L'Eau en Blanc as the Eau de Parfum reminds me of Matey Bubblebath....

You can never go wrong with a good shower gel sample, and I adore these for either going away or for showering post work out. The Noble Isle scent smells heavenly and I adore the concept of celebrating British culture and nature. Summer Rising Cornish Hedgerows will do me just fine!  

Finally, I'm looking forward to treating myself with an Apivita Express Beauty Mask. The mention of honey, moisture and nourishment are music to my ears, so I can't wait to pop this on and see how it fairs. 

Overall, 

I'm not jumping for joy about this months offering, but that's what makes Glossybox so fun. You open up your box every month to a five little surprises, win some or lose some you're sure to find a gem or two. Over the past year I've discovered some wonderful products that I simply wouldn't have touched if they hadn't come crashing through my letterbox via Glossybox. 

Bravo Glossybox. Here's to another great year!
