Glossybox: May!

My Glossybox arrived at the weekend and here are the contents! I was excited to finally see the collab with Collection Cosmetics as I feel like I've been waiting forever since they announced it via Twitter a few months ago. This months box was the plain pink which as you will know if you have read my blog before I do prefer a designed box, but I still love how reusable the Glossybox is compared to Birchbox.

We have our information cards inside as usual with a product card and information about this months box theme and sneak peek. This months theme is Summer's Calling and I was excited to see the sneak peek for next month is Flash Tattoos! (Been wanting to try for a while!) So if you want to sign up for next months box there is a link in my beauty box referral page at the top of this blog.

My sneak peek last month told us we were going to be receiving the Mememe eyeliner pencil in blue, I wasn't that enthralled to be receiving this as I'm not over keen on blue eyeliner. It's double ended with a lighter and darker shaded sides, colour payoff is just ok but the swatch on my hand very quickly smudged away so I wouldn't hold much hope out for my runny eyes. This isn't an item I will be using unfortunately, although it's great to get a full size item and this would normally retail at £6.95. (Maybe I should start doing blog sales with the amount of items I have spare!)

The next makeup item was the Collection Cosmetics Field day collection lipstick in the shade Tulip, a lovely pale coral shade. I do love abit of Collection cosmetics as the brand does my favourite concealor of all time to use the lasting perfection concealor. This lipstick retails at £2.99 in stores like Boots or Superdrug. One thing I will say is make sure your lips are fully exfoliated before use as it is slightly drying on and I felt like you could really see the lines of my lips in my swatch pictures. One thing I hate about blogging is taking pictures of my lips as it shows up everything, hairs, marks, mistakes, the lot.

I also received the Etre Belle Aloe Vera ultra moisturising gel which retails at £15.93. This is great for giving a cooling effect to the skin and is perfect for anyone that has had too much sun, any type of burning from the sun and this will smooth and relieve immensely. This again was another full size product which there were three this month. Well done Glossybox. 

The Sass product in my box was a little intriguing as at my work (Boots) we have started stocking this in the pharmacy area of the store and I hadn't really heard too much about it. This is the Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate, which is to be used post-shave or wax. It is suppose to soothe the delicate skin area and reduced the hair regrowth. It contains exfoliating ingredients to help with those dreaded in-growing hairs. Full size version costs £12 from Boots, this sample size is worth £3.60. 

Lastly The product I keep smelling over and over is the Zerreau Shampoo foam in the scent of Apple. I love the smell and love the idea of this, it's the new dry shampoo. You apply the foam directly to your scalp, massage it in to get all the dirt and grime away. Then using a hand towel you remove the foam to return to dry, dirt free hair. Perfect for anyone going to festivals or just a quick freshen up. Full size costs £7.95 and also comes in strawberry scent from Festival Shampoo.

Total box value this month is £32.56! What are your thoughts on the items in this months Glossybox.
