May 2016 Glossybox

A couple of weeks ago now I received the latest Glossybox and I was really impressed with this month’s offerings. The boxes were themed on city breaks and had a limited edition design. I received the New York box which I was really happy with and I hope to go to New York next year so I think I received the best box design for me. The box contents contained some great goodies ideal for City Breaks, all I need is a ticket!

Propercorn – Lightly Salted 
The first item I saw on the top of my box was this little 10g packet of Propercorn popcorn. This is gluten free and also suitable for vegans and only contained 43 calories for the small bag. I love the packaging and it was nice to get a little extra treat in our boxes this month. I have tried other flavours from this brand and they’re all delicious.

Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil – Full Size £13.99
I have been meaning to get myself some sun tan lotion for the summer and Hawaiian Tropic is a brand I see often but have never tried. This lotion has an SPF of 15 so is great for the British ‘summer’ where we don’t get extreme heats but I would want something with a higher SPF if I was going abroad somewhere warm. I absolutely love the scent of this lotion with extracts of coconut and guava, it smells like Malibu and reminds me of summer instantly. This oil applies really well and doesn’t leave your skin feeling shiny or sticky it just sinks in really well.

Hairon – Zero Crease Hair Tie – Full Size £3.99
I received some similar hairtyes to these in a previous Glossybox but they always come in handy and the bright pink colour is great for summer. These are great for reducing damage on your hair and I love wearing them to the gym to get my hair out of my face. This handy 3 pack will keep me going for ages.

Bee Good Youth – Enhancing Plump and Firm Moisturiser – Full Size £23.50
I have previously tried Bee Good products and really like them. This moisturiser aims to plump and smooth your complexion leaving it dewy and glowing. I have been using a small amount of this on my face in the morning and night and I have already noticed a difference. My makeup has been applying smoother especially over areas with fine lines. I am very impressed and will continue to use this alongside other Bee Good items.

Revlon Mascara – Super Length - Full Sized £9.99
A couple of months ago Glossybox gave us the chance to choose one of five Revlon mascaras from their new range. Each one was designed with a different look from volume boosting to lash lengthening. I chose super length and I am extremely happy with my choice. My NARS mascara had started to dry up so this couldn’t have come at a better time. I love the formula of this mascara and it really does work to lengthen the lashes. I actually want to try other ones in this range, has anyone tried to mix and match and use two different ones at once?

Absolute New York – Velvet Lippie – Full Size £4.93
The final item I received in my Glossybox was this matte lipstick in the shade ‘toasted’. I’ll be honest when I first opened my box I thought this was a concealer and when applying this to my lips it looked like one too! This shade is basically the same colour as my skin so for me it really doesn’t work. I would have loved to receive a different shade. I am sure this looks lovely on different skintones.
