May Glossybox Review: HIT OR MISS?


Hey everyone,

After what has been a manic week and it seems that I haven't had time to catch a breath I came home to find my May Glossybox sitting on my bed. I have a love/ hate relationship with beauty boxes in general and they really do seem hit or miss. I thought I would do a quick post to let you know my thoughts so here goes:

This box was in collaboration with Superdrug to celebrate 50 years since the beginning.

What was inside? :

1) Blowpro - After blow strong hold finishing spray - pretty self explanatory really but this is a nice travel size and the full size is available for £11.99 (Travel Size)

2) B. Complete Long Lasting Nail Polish in 'Moleskine' - A really gorgeous shade but not very summery. This reminds me of the Marc Jacobs 'Delphine' polish and Chanel's 'Particulaire'. I'll definitely wear it but not until Autumn/Winter.  rrp £4.99 (Full Size)

3) Scholl- Velvet Smooth Overnight Mask - To get your tootsies ready to spring into summer. I'm quite happy that this is in here as Scholl products are very good and this is for me personally the best product in this box rrp £7.99 (Full Size)

4) I Love Cosmetics - Strawberries & Milkshake Shimmer and Shine Gloss - This is without doubt the worst product I have laid my eyes on or smelt. The scent is so sickly it is really not nice at all, the frosted pink shade is maybe perfect for a 6 year old but I genuinely don't think I can name one person that I know who would wear this. It is going straight in the bin! rrp £1.29

5) Collection - Bronze Glow Mosaic- This is a nice little product to have in the glossy box, I personally won't use it, I'll give it to my sister as it is a bit too shimmery for me, but I think she will love it! rrp £2.99

Bonus products...

Garnier Oil Beauty Lotion- I have heard quite good things about this so I am quite looking forward to trying it and it's a shame that this wasn't a full size. rrp £4.99

Ghost Fragrance in 'Eclipse' sample - As a perfume junkie (I have 40+ ) I've had enough of little samples as they just get pushed to the back of the cupboard and gather dust. It is a shame that fillers like this are put on. On the plus side it is a nice scent! rrp £33.00

All in all, I am a bit underwhelmed by my GlossyBox and unsubscribed as soon as I had undone the parcel. Maybe if they do another impressive collaboration I may just subscribe again. But I am leaving it for the time being.

Do you subscribe to Glossybox? If so, did you enjoy this months box?

Let me know in the comments or tweet me @amiisteward

Until next time,

  1. I unsubscribed after last months and I'm so glad I did. Where are the high end beauty products Glossybox is supposed to be about?

    1. Yeah I mean it'll obviously be high street as it was a limited edition collab with super drug, but even before that, I don't think they've had amazing products. I really like Birchbox but I don't buy any until I have an idea of what is gonna be in them x
