Glossy Box May- Birthday Edition

 Its only right to start with wishing Glossy box a

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

they have been such a great brand to work with over the last year and its been great to see such an original idea develop on the British market. Last month I attended their fab party and was able to meet some of the team and they are all lovely! I was patiently awaiting the Birthday special box all month and here it is...
As stupid as it sounds- I love the tissue paper, its just so pretty, fitting to the brand and nicer than plain black one. Inside this was a rather full Glossy Box with 8 products if you include the balloon, the other product include perfume samples, a Glossy Box mirror, false eyelashes and a few other things. I am not overly excited about this box other than the tissue paper and the amount of products, I would say my least favourite product are the lashes as the gold makes them a little drag queen for me.

Other then that I quite like everything, the UNIQONE all in one hair treatment is a generous size and one I will probably get through, the Noble Isle Summer Rising is also something I can get use out of although I probably wouldn't have purchased it myself. My two stand out product are the Murad Clarifying Mask which although targeted at acne I will still be using and (surprise surprise!) I like the perfume samples. Maybe there is actually a reason they include them in these boxes! Usually I moan about small perfume sample but I love the Lolita Lempicka L'Eau en Blanc and am seriously considering making it my summer scent.

I know they say you're never happy with what you get but I think some of the other Glossy Boxes had some amazing products inside. There were 3 possible HD brow products, which I would of loved as well as a Collection 2000 gel eyeliner (glad I didn't get that) and a Welda product too.

Overall I think this was a decent box and if I found a possible signature summer scent I'm happy!

What did you get in your box? Will you be signing up?

  1. Haha I know what you mean about the eyelashes being a bit drag queen but they could be quite fun for something like NYE. The Murad mask looks good too x

  2. I agree about the eyelashes - could be used for NYE or Halloween, fancy dress etc.
    Cant wait to get mine this month.

  3. I loved the perfume samples too and I'm not usually a fan of perfume samples. I was disappointed with the Anniversary Box I thought it would be better and I'm thinking of unsubscribing, I'm not sure though.

  4. Maaan, I so wish I had got the hair treatment & Murad mask! I'm quite happy with the gel liner as I've never tried one so I'll be keen to try it out, but the Weleda cream is pretty small and has quite a big price difference to the Murad product, which is a bit annoying. I know you get your money's worth really, but I think everyone should have the same quality products really.

    But I'm definitely happy I got the HD brow groomer instead of the eyelashes! XO.

  8. I got a similar box to yourself. I have no use for the false eyelashes whatsoever as I don't use them, not even for nights out. I think some of the other boxes looked much better. I think I would've preferred either the HD items or even the gel eyeliner to the lashes. Oh well, you can't win every one.
