Happy Birthday Glossybox!

I arrived home yesterday, from a weekend at home driving cool cars, to be greeted by my Glossybox parcel sitting invitingly on my dresser. I always look forward to the end of the month when their offering of 5 high end beauty samples will land in my possession. This time it's Glossybox's birthday, meaning an uber- packed box with a few added extras, including a really cute birthday balloon! 

I was quite impressed with the products I received in my box this month as there was a nice variety, although it didn't initially excite me as much as the April Natural box as I adored the Figs and Rouge Balm and the Caudalie serum. Here is what I got this month: 

Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfum and Si Lolita: I thought the cardboard sleeves and tiny baby pink and pastel purple spray bottles were adorable, yet I am undecided about the scents. The original eau de parfum is definitely my favourite as its floral and sweet, prefect for summer. 

Berber Oil Hair Treatment: This smells divine, a bit like sweets and after a quick tousle through my hair today I have noticed that it feels softer and more sleek. We'll see! A review to come on this one!

Apivita Express Beauty Masks with Pomegranate: I cannot wait to try these out. They claim to revitalise, restore natural radiance and contain honey, olive oil and vitamins to moisturise and tone the skin. I'm a sucker for a face mask so these are already a winner!

Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath and Shower Gel: It's always handy to have a mini travel sized shower gel so I'm pleased with this. It smells lush and is inspired by the British Isles.. nice to see a bit of patriotic Jubilee fever making its way into the box. 

Eldora False Eyeslashes: These are quite extreme in my opinion and as someone who has never ventured towards false eyelashes a bit daunting. I will however be giving these a go and hopefully won't end up with eyelashes on my cheek half way through a night out. I like the fact that they come with a little pot of glue for easy use. 

Along with a compact Glossybox mirror which has now taken pride of place in my handbag, this box has definitely included a good variety of lovely products. The oil treatment and false eyelashes are exciting as are both products I've not really gotten into before and I am sure I will find a few gems. I'm excited to try out these products and I'll include some reviews at a later date.
