Glossybox May 2014 Unboxing

This month Glossybox have done a collaboration with Superdrug to celebrate 50 years of Superdrug! I'm still in two minds about whether or not I like my products this month, some I will definitely use and other I'm thinking meh.

Heres a look at whats inside my box.

First I must mention a little extra in this months box. Ghost is my all time favourite perfume so I was thrilled to see a sample in my box. Eclipse is actually a scent a haven't tried yet as it has just recently been released. I love it and will be adding a full size bottle to my collection soon! £33 for 50ml. (sample worth £1.32)

The second extra is a 10ml sachet sample of Garnier Oil Beauty Lotion. Infused with argan, macademia, almond & rose oil. A good little sample to have for a weekend away. Full size retails for £4.99 for 250ml. (Sample worth 20p)

Other than the extras above I received 4 full size and 1 travel size product in my box this month.

First full size is unfortunately a product I will not be using. 2true PRO - 3D Candy Nail Art Noir. I don't wear nail varnish much so won't have much use for nail art either I'm afraid. Retails for £3.

Next product is from a brand I like Maybelline. Their Dream Matte Mousse is my go to foundation. I already own a few of their mascaras (some still in packaging) so this one is going to someone else. Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara - Very Black retails for £4.99.

I do wonder if glossybox take the beauty profiles into account when picking products for the boxes as I have lipgloss as a like but haven't liked lipstick. Some others recieved a lipgloss in their box which I would have preferred. However B.Sheer Condioning Lipstick in shade Merlot is a lovely shade of red and adds a nice little touch of glitter to lips when applied. Retails for £6.99

Last of the full sized products this month is Spray & Go CoCo Body Moisturiser by Vaseline. I have to admit I was a bit letdown to see a Vaseline product. The only Vaseline product I would normally use is the lip therapy. I would rarely buy their products. Having said that after trying this moisturiser I feel I may have judged too soon. I love the cocoa butter scent and the spray bottle means less mess than if it were a in a tub. Retails £4.99 for 190ml.

The last product is a 50ml travel size Blow Up Daily Volumizing Conditioner by BlowPro. I love getting hair products but my hair is quite thick anyway so not sure how well this will work for me - I don't want huge hair!  Full size is £9.99 for 235ml making this sample worth £2.12.

Overall an ok box - could have been better. This is the lowest value box I've had from glossybox coming in at £23.61 but still worth the £10 + p&p paid. I have seen other boxes this month with a value of £40, which is a big difference.


  1. I'll swap you my Scholl Velvet Smooth Night Mask Foot moisturiser, for your maybelline mascara? ;)

    1. sorry ive actually already made a swap on fb with someone x

  2. My box was worth £18 so I think your pretty lucky. Seems like everyone has had better boxes then me! Check out my review of May's Glossybox if you have time
