When I first got the email about this months box I couldn't be more excited. There's nothing I love more than a specially designed box.
The theme for May brings us the 'glossy getaways' box*. There's four designs which will be sent out at random, depicting four cities. London, New York, Paris and Berlin. I received the London edition, it looks so cool in person. How many landmarks can you spot?
Loceryl - Nail Gel
£16.99 / 15g
I've never seen this before but my nails are not the prettiest right now - thank you anxiety! This is perfect for damaged nails as it promotes healthy regrowth by restoring the natural water content of your nails. Apply twice daily to clean nails and you should start to see results within a fortnight.
Crabtree And Evelyn - Hand Threapy - Somerset Meadow
£6 / 25g
I could have sworn I'd tried this before, though I've tried a few different scents in this range. Upon looking through the archives I realised I actually received in a Glossybox way back in 2013. The brand describe the scent as fresh wildflowers mingled with dewy greens and water lily. With a touch of blackberry and bergamot. It has a lovely fruity floral scent. The cream itself is a thick intensive formula but it sinks in effortlessly. It's the perfect size for your handbag so that's straight where this is going.
Proper Corn - Lightly Sea Salted
85p / 25g
A nice little extra. Who can say no to a little snack whilst you're writing about your box? Or perhaps just delving into the contents. Usually I don't got for just straight up salty but I love it mixed with sweet. I thought I'd give this a whirl. Whilst it wasn't my favourite it was subtle enough and not overly salted.
Absolute New York - Velvet Lippie - Rumba
£4.93 / 6g
I've never tried them but I imagine these to be similar to the NYX Soft Matte range. It's a moussey texture that glides on easily. It's just unfortunate that this colour doesn't suit me at all. I was hoping for a muted, everyday pink but the one I received is a very bright orange coral.
Revlon - Ultimate All-In-One Mascara - Blackest Black
£9.99 / 8.5ml
Revlon have recently launched a collection of five brand new mascaras. They cover everything from definition, lengthening and volume. They also do one that claims to do it all which is the one I received. I love the packaging, the tube is a little flatter so doesn't have the tendency to roll away. The cap is super glossy and comes in different colours, depending on what the mascara does. The main tube is a rubberised matte. I was quite surprised that the brush is so small compared to most mascaras, perfect for getting right into the corners. The consistency is more on the wet side. I wasn't super impressed with it on my first try with I shall persist with it and see if it improves.
Bee Good - Youth Enhancing Plump And Firm Moisturiser
£23.30 / 50ml
£9 / 15ml
I think this is a really great travel size or just to sample it before splashing out on the full size. It contains British honey, raspberry seed oil along with hyaluronic acid and concentrated algae. After applying this my skin instantly feels ridiculously smooth, more so than any moisturiser I've tried before. Whilst I can't speak for the firming or anti ageing properties it really does feel wonderful on the skin.
£10 (plus p&p) per month
