May GlossyBox - 1st Birthday

Hey lovelies!,

So I had my lovely Glossybox waiting for me when I got back from work yesterday. I was quite excited about the box as it was the company's first birthday, and was hoping it would live up to the hype surrounding the box.

With it being the anniversary box GB included a few added extras, including a cute balloon and compact mirror. Usually you receive five samples, however with this months box excluding the companies extras you are receiving six samples.

Let's Go Lashes

So this is the only full sized product in this months box, and I brand that I had never heard of before - probably because I'm not a big false eyelash fan. The product states that they are made from human hair which I find a little weird. 

Like I said I'm not a big fan of false eyelashes so probably won't get any use out of these. 

Weleda Wild Rose Cream

Again this is another brand I haven't heard of, but I was quite intrigued when reading the little card of information. However one thing I wasn't a fan about was the little instruction/information booklet that is in the box, as not a word of it is in english. 

Although I am looking forward to giving this product a go.

Uniqone Hair Treatment

I was quite happy to see a hair treatment product within the box, and this product offers 10 benefits that the hair needs, including: repair the hair, protect colour and stops split ends. So can't wait to try it out.

 Noble Isle Shower Gel

One thing I've noticed with GB is that they always contain shower products (or that I've found), as as much as I like trying them out I sometimes get bored with them. However I have heard good things about these products.

Lolita Lempicka and Si Lolita

I've grouped these two together, and as much as I like the smell of the two, I don't like samples like this in boxes, especially when they are a third full. I find yes samples such as the Versace are great but these don't seem that great if I'm being honest.

The two little goodies that GlossyBox added, I love the mirror! I find it's a great product and a necessity for any girl! This might replace the little one that I have lurking in my bag somewhere. The balloon is in there for everyone to take a photo with and post it on the GB Facebook or Twitter page.

Anyways, that was this months box and I have to say I like it but don't really love it, I have now unsubscribed from GB as I found that the money I'm spending on this could be used for other products - stuff that I actually do want.

I may end up subscribing again if the box gets better in the months to come. Have you had this months box, if so what do you think
