First Peek at the May Glossybox

*Updated 12 November 2016 with comments on the products

A lovely start to the day today, my May Glossybox arrived, I love it when it arrives on a Saturday because I have time to open it straight away and have a look and see what's inside, if it's a weekday I'm usually in a rush and it gets put aside.

So anyway, I thought I'd do a quick post showing what's in the box, it's not a proper review as I haven't tried any of the products yet but at first glance it's a good box, plus there's a lipstick and an eye pencil, always a winner for me!

This month the products are:

SASS Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate - full size product, £12.00
This is a treatment for those post shave moments, soothes skin and reduces hair re-growth and an exfoliator to ensure ingrown hairs do not occur.  Can't wait to try this!

Update ... I was right, this stuff is gorgeous, my legs are quite dry because I shave rather than wax so this felt like pampering them!  I would probably buy this again.

MeMeMe Enchanted Eyes Dual Ended Eye Wand - full size product, £6.95
I'm excited about this because I love eye pencils and it's got two blue tones, I love blue as I've got brown eyes so blue is one of my colours.  I'm going on holiday soon so I'll take this with me and this is definitely a product that will get its own review.

Update ... I knew I was going to like this, the colour is amazing and it was brilliant on holiday.  It's easy to apply and to wash off, I didn't have to use extra eye makeup remover to get rid of any excess 'blue' before bedtime.

Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam - full size product, £7.95
I've never heard of Zerreau, have you?  I've never managed to get on with anything that wasn't normal shampoo, i.e that needs water so this will be interesting, I have used dry shampoo spray before and I don't really like it but sometimes it's ok in an emergency.  This product however, is a foam so I assume your hair needs a bit more assistance to re-style, the instructions say you will need to towel dry it.  It's a shampoo that doesn't need water.  I'm a bit confused.  I'll let you know how I get on!

Update ... Sadly I didn't get on with this at all, and I really wanted to!  I'm not sure if my hair is too long, too thick or just a bit bonkers but it just didn't feel right, it was damp but not wet if you see what I mean.  It smelled lovely though, I kept smelling my hair all day.

Etre Belle Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel - full size product, £15.95
I'm a big fan of anything to do with Aloe Vera so this is going to be great.  Another one I'll be packing to take on holiday with me.

Update ... Well, I did take this on holiday with me and just as well as unfortunately I caught the sun on my feet (too busy fussing over sun-creaming the kids to do myself) and wow they were sore.  This isn't actually sold as an After Sun product but can definitely be used as one, the Aloe was extremely soothing on my poor pink feet and the skin didn't dry out and healed quite quickly.  

Collection Cosmetics Field Day Lipstick - full size product, £2.99
Collection Cosmetics used to be Collection 2000 right?  Man, haven't they changed their branding,  their packaging used to be quite dull and plastic looking, this is really cute!  Years ago I was a big fan of their mascara because it was inexpensive and I didn't have much money and it was really easy to wash off.  This lipstick may not suit me as it's pink, the wrong sort of pink if you know what I mean but I might be mistaken, I will try it and report back. 

Update ... As predicted this shade of pink did not suit me at all which was a pity as I really liked the feel of the lipstick, it was light and quite moisturising.  Alas, it was the wrong colour - boo!  Great price though.

Now, scroll down to get close up photos of all the goodies.

  1. I really liked the lipstick that was included, but I had a Nails Inc polish in my box which I at first was really excited about, but then I realised it was only a top coat, and I was a little disappointed. Interested to see how that no water shampoo is going to work.


Thank you for taking the time to read this post and to comment, I really appreciate it! Maria xx
