It’s the Anniversary Edition... Glossybox UK May 2012


I cannot believe that Glossybox UK has been going a whole year– Happy Birthday Glossybox! To celebrate the occasion this month’s box is jam packed with birthday treats... all for us!



 
Neal’s Yard Remedies Rehydrating Rose Daily Moisture 45ml £12.00


It’s great to see a full size products and I’m thrilled it’s a facial moisturiser. I’ve just used it this morning. Initial findings are pretty good. It’s lightweight, absorbs quickly and smells gorgeous. It’s probably not as rich as I like, but on a hot sweaty day like today it’s probably perfect for controlling the oil in my skin.

Noble Isle Cornish Hedgerows Bath & Shower Gel 75ml


I’ve never heard of this brand and shower gels aren’t generally something that I get excited about but it’s a good size and it smells lovely – very summery. The full sized product of 250ml retails for £20.00.

Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner in Brown 5ml £4.99

Although this is a full sized product, Collection 2000, or just Collection as it has been rebranded, is hardly a “luxury” brand so it’s a little risky of Glossybox to include it (remember the Bastiste backlash).  That said, I love gel liners and think Teal will quite suit my eyes. I’m looking forward to trying this one the most.

Eldora False Eyelashes £3.90


Are these a bit too TOWIE? They’re pretty and striking, but probably not my thing. Again, a full size products, I’m sure they’ll come in handy at some point... maybe I’ll be invited to a pimps and hos party!

Lolita Lempicka L’Eau en Blanc & Eau de Parfum, 0.8ml each


I sometimes feel a little short changed when Glossybox include these tinsy testers, but there is two of them and they’re very nice wearable fragrances. I might take them on holiday next month to save on weight. Both the L’Eau en Blanc and Eau de Parfum costs £65.00 for 100ml.

And finally, a couple of Brucey bonuses – a Glossybox pink balloon and handy little compact...

The anniversary edition gets a thumbs up from me. Thanks Glossybox for a great year of new, exciting and surprise products.

  2. I agree, those eyelashes are a bit much! Glossybox has come to the US. I've seen some sample boxes some bloggers recieved, but at $21 I think I'm going to skip it!

  3. I agree Yessie. $21 is quite a lot. If it wasn't such good material for the blog I might not have done it. x
