May Glossybox - It's Their 2nd Birthday!

Hiya Girlies!

So last month, being so so busy, I never got time to blog about my previous Glossybox, which is such a shame as I felt it was the best box that I have recieved by far! If you would still like to see a full review on last months box, please do leave me a comment in the comment box below to let me know.

I started my subscription in January this year, as I had been intrigued by the beauty box for a while, and finally decided that after spending on everyone else over christmas, it was only fair to treat myself, right? I absolutely love how excited i get, every month, waiting for my Glossybox to arrive, I have it sent to my mum's address, as there is always someone in, and I ring her everyday after my dispatch email arrives untill it comes, she must think i'm crazy!

I think that the boxes are very hit and miss, some months I love, others not so much, which is always going to happen, however my only complaint is that the box is far too varied, with too many differences between boxes, and this seems to vary more and more every month.

This month is Glossybox's 2nd birthday and I was quite happy with my box, untill I saw what other's had recieved, with such a good array of brands being received, including Caudalie, La Roche Posay and Rodger & Gallet, so when I saw others recieveing these products and I didn't have those, I became a little disinterested in my own box.

Nevertheless, I do still love my Glossybox, and here's what I received this month...


Loved the bright theme for this months box, with plenty of bright summer pinks, oranges and blues


 This was my take on being creative for my instagram picture, let me know what you think :)

Awaphi Wild Ginger Shine Spray


This shine spray by Paul Mitchell is created uing awaphui from a farm in Hawaii, the range of products contain Keratriplex designed to seal and repair hair that is damaged, which is easily done with factors such as weather, heat and styling. This shine spray is fine, light and aims to add moisture and shine to the hair for a healthy-looking finish. The product can also be used when using heat to style the hair, as it is designed to protect your locks. The fragrance is not one that I would usually go for in a haircareproduct, but I think that the wild ginger fragrance does give it a more luxurious feel. 

The product is a full size product worth £18.95 which I feel is very generous of Glossybox to include, and is not a product I've heard of before, so I can't wait to try it out!

Check out the science, heritage of these products and the rest of the range at: www.paul-mitchell.co.uk/awapuhi 

Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner


I was a little bit dissapointed with this product, as this isn't a new product on gthe market and I have tried this before. The product is a waterproof black eyeliner with a fine nib, for precision and definition, it has a long handle, which allows for easier application and is great for popping in your handbag on a night out.

I have tried this product before and found that it didn't agree with my skin very well, it left my eyelids red and sore, however I don't think this was down to the product but probably more to do with my sensitive skin, so it may be a good idea to patch test this beforehand if you do have sensitive skin.

This is a full sized product worth £2.99 and can be purchased at: www.collectioncosmetics.co.k/eyes/eye-liner

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara

After receiving the Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush in March's box, I would say I was definitely intrigued by their products, and was ecstatic to see another one of their products in this month's box. This mascara is designed to be waterproof, hard wearing and long lasting, which sounds pretty promising, right?  It also suggests that it doesn't clump, but adds length and increases volume, let me at it! This product also has such pretty packaging, and has a fibre applicator, which I love, so I cannot wait to get try this out! Fingers crossed it's as good as it looks and sounds!

The product is full sized worth £15, check their collections out at: www.jellypongpong.com

Headline Colours Poolside Party Nail Polish in 083


This nail polish is part of a new limited edition collection, with ultra-high pigmentation, gloss and UV absorbers, which ensure great colour and staying power for a fabulous look to show off by the pool. The polishes are also free from toxins, which is great to look for in products.

Although this looks a great product, I will probably pass this on to my sister, which I'm sure she'll love, because being a nail technician, I prefer to use my gel polish over regular nail polish, as I like to ensure my manicure is chic free.

This product is another full sized worth £9 and you can check these out at: www.headlinecolours.com

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics (Formerly known as BM Beauty) Prime & Create Mixing Medium

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics is co-founded by Kimberly Wyatt and Laura Comiskie, who developed these products to be cruelty-free, free from parabens and to contain natural ingredients such as zinc oxide, which is a natural anti-inflammatory; to name just a few great things about this range.

This product is multi-purpose, aloe-vera based clear gel, designed to be used any way you want! This can be mixed powders to create creams or used alone as a primer for a flawless base.

If like me, your scared to try out all the gorgeous new cream blushes available for summer, why not try mixing your usual powder blusher with a small amount of this mixing medium to create your own, and see if your able to work with it before commiting to the real thing?

This is a trial size product of 2.5g and the full size is 20g for £20, check out their products at: www.beautifulmovementscosmetics.com

And last but not least, the Glossybox nail files....
