May Glossy Box | Unboxing

Hello Again,

It's been a while since I've done a Glossy Box unboxing so I thought I would show you what I got inside May's. If you want to see what I got, keep reading.

This months theme is Glossy Getaway, city breaks are now as popular as beach breaks (I actually prefer city breaks) so the team at Glossy Box decided to dedicate this months collectors edition to their favourite urban destinations. I got the green box which was, London. Which I was actually really happy with because I am going to London in July and I'm oh so excited! The four collectible boxes depict London, Paris, New York and Berlin and they were all designed by OMY Studio. (I always try to come up with good ideas of how to re-use my boxes and this months box is going to go to April so she can colour it in, I'm sure she'll love it).

Let's take a look at what products I got:

Absolute New York Velvet Lippie

"This pretty hippie glides over lips, delivering a slick of highly pigmented colour, which then sets into a plush matte finish." I got the shade Lolita, it's a very bright but pale pink, it doesn't really suit my skin tone as I'm quite pale but I think with a tan it would look nice. (by the by - it smells AMAZING). 

Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser

"There's a very good reason this gentle, soap-free cleanser has a whole host of advocates, from top dermatologists to celebs such as Alexa Chung. It's suitable for any skin type and soothes and nourishes skin as it removes every once of makeup." This kind of looks like it should be contact lens solution but I'm looking forward to giving it a go!

A few months ago we were able to choose which kind of Revlon Mascara we wanted and I went for the Ultra Volume. I have really long eyelashes so lengthening mascaras don't really appeal to me but anything that helps them look fuller I am good to give it a try!

Bee Good Youth enhancing plump and firm moisturiser

"This nourishing moisturiser works to plump, smooth and soften your complexion, leaving it dewy and glowing with luminosity". This sounds great, hopefully I can tick all of those boxes!

Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil SPF 15

"Whether you're off on a city break or catching the rays during a staycation, protect your skin and prolong that sun-kissed glow with this water resistant dry oil. The bend of cocoa butter, coconut oil and vitamin C nourishes the skin, while SPF 15 offers medium protection against UVA and UVB rays." I like what this claims to do but I am really put off by the smell (it's kind of like cat pee). I don't think I will be using this as if I think it smells like this I don't want people thinking I smell of that.

That's everything I got in this months Glossy Box, I'm excited to try most of the products but a few I think I will give away to friends - You can't like everything all the time.

Have you tried any of these products before? Let me know.


  1. Oo this looks like a good box! I'm intrigued by the velvet lipstick, wonder how it compares to NYX. I haven't tried Glossybox for ages now! x
