The Glossybox Getaways May Edition Beauty Box
As Spring turns into Summer, and the warmer weather starts creeping upon us, a lot of us start to think about our next holiday destination. Because, let’s face it…the Great British summer has a bit of a reputation of raining on us. Whether it’s a long haul or a short city break that tickles your fancy, there is still a lot of prepping and packing to do! So this month’s themed Glossybox is all about the Getaway! Focusing on four favourite urban destinations – London, Paris, New York and Berlin – each collector’s box will be decorated with your chosen city illustration packed with all your city break essentials…well, minus your clothes and passport, of course! That, we will leave to you.
So whats in the box?
Hairon Zero Crease Hair Tie – If you are a regular reader of my site, then you will know that I’m a total fan of these clever spiral designs. They hold your hair firmly in place, yet don’t leave a mark. They are also kinder to your hair.
Absolute New York Velvet Lippie – Absolute is a new brand to me so I was intrigued to see what this buttery formula was like and was curious as to what the actual shade was. Much to my disappointment, it was the same pale pink colour as the tube, but had a great buttery feel that set into a matt finish. The formula of this lippy is great; the shade, however, is too light for my colouring.
Hawaiian Tropic – Don’t you just love the smell of Hawaiian Tropic products? They really capture that ‘holiday’ scent. This SPF 15 dry oil is perfect for sightseeing days when you aren’t fully exposed to the sun but still need that SPF coverage. Being a dry oil, it blends in easily and nourishes the skin with its blend of cocoa butter, coconut oil and vitamin C.
Bee Good Youth Enhancing Plump and Firm Moisturiser – A nourishing moisturiser that works to plump the skin to leave a softer complexion. This 15ml tube has enough contents in it to last you for a two-week break as only a small pea-sized amount is required. And just in case you missed it, make sure you try out the refreshing new lip balm from Bee Good, Lime Blossom and Honey, inspired by yours truly! (You can read more here).
Revlon Mascara – If you asked me how many mascaras I had on the go, the answer is probably a few. With new products being introduced to the market daily, it’s easy to recognize why there is a need to try them all. Revlon, for example, has launched five new mascaras, each designed to give a different look. Each box contains either your chosen mascara or a handpicked one for new subscribers. Mine contained Dramatic Definition; perfect for my Saturday night!
Mrs J’s Verdict – It’s been a while since I’ve tested out the latest Glossybox and I have to say I am happy that we have been reacquainted. Each of the five items was either a brand or a product that I haven’t tried before, and there were 2 full-sized items too. The box design was nice and the offers given inside for subscribers who want to repurchase any of the samples were generous. There was also a lifestyle (food) item added in the form of proper corn, sweet and salty just how I like it. All in all great value for money! I can’t wait to see what next month’s box brings…
