Glossybox - May.

It's that time of the month when a little box (or rather bag, this month) arrives on your doorstep full of surprise goodies.

This month Glossybox have teamed up with Superdrug to not only celebrate 50 years of the iconic high street store. But to also bring you the 'summer beauty edit' box*.


Schwarzkopf Essence Ultîme - Crystal Shine Conditioner
£4.99 / 250ml
Claudia Schiffer helped with the developing of a new line of hair care products, this so happens to be one of them. It peaked my interest and I was curious to try it as it's free from SLS. Which not a lot of hair products are but they can become irritating for me if I use them, so I try my best to make a conscious effort not to.
I haven't tried this as of yet but it smells amazing! It claims to have a zero weight formula with liquidised crystals which gives a boosted shine.

Scholl - Velvet Smooth Overnight Mask
£7.99 / 60ml
Not the most exciting of products but one I can see being popular now sandal weather is about.
Using this before bed you just rub it into your feet like a regular foot cream and skip the socks (I cannot stand wearing socks to bed). It helps stimulate cell regrowth, giving you softer feet in just 24 hours.

Max Factor - Facefinity All Day Primer
£10.99 / 30ml
I'm keen to try this as it contains micro correctors that work to absorb sweat and extend the wear of foundation for a flawless finish.
I've tried a few new primers recently but haven't settled on a favourite. What's even better with this one though is it contains SPF20. I'm hoping it works well so I can have a flawless finish all day and the added sun protection all in one product.


Garnier - Oil Body Lotion
£4.99 / 250ml
Not the biggest fan of sachet products as I find you don't get enough to get a good feel for the product.
I didn't like this much as I found the smell wasn't very nice. It worked well as a lotion but not my cup of tea.

Ghost - Eclipse EDT
£33 / 50ml
I don't believe I've tried any fragrances from Ghost. On reading the notes I wasn't sure I was going to like this but it's quite fruity floral, which is what I prefer. It's a very summery fragrance and I actually quite like it. It's not something I could see myself wearing regularly though.

Rimmel London - Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara
£6.99
A brand new mascara from Rimmel, their first with an hourglass shaped brush. This helps push the lashes up and out to create a 'false lash' look.
My lashes are really quite rubbish so I can't see it doing much for me but it's worth a try.

B. - Sheer Conditioning Lipstick - Petal
£6.99
B. is a brand that's a fairly new brand, exclusive to Superdrug so it's only fair they make an appearance.
I was a little apprehensive on first opening this lipstick as Petal looks quite frosty in the bullet. I needn't have worried, upon application it becomes a 'my lips but better' shade. It's not too pink, not too brown. It's a natural looking neutral shade. It contains vitamin E, shea butter and aloe vera so it's really moisturising. And the sheer aspect of it means you don't have to be super precise with application.
Whilst the packaging feels very cheap and isn't the best in terms of quality. It doesn't take up too much space and the contents aren't all that bad.

I really love this box. It's a good mixture of things and the numerous of full sizes is a great bonus.

Definitely one of, if not my favourite of the year so far.
