May Glossybox

Once again, apologies for my little blogging break. Things have been so busy since Christmas, I haven’t really had any free time at all. Things are starting to look slightly quieter so I promise to upload more frequently.

What better way to end a blogging break than with a special edition Glossybox. There was a lot of speculation around this months box as the theme was kept close knit in the Glossybox office until delivery day. The box is a Superdrug special celebrating 50 years of Superdrug. I’m a big fan of Superdrug, their budget beauty brands are really great and some are sort after worldwide!

So on to the box... I love the design this month, and the best thing is there are so many products inside, most of them full size as well. Winner!

Max Factor – Facefinity All Day Primer

This couldn’t have appeared in my Glossybox at a better time. Ive just run out of my all time favourite Smashbox primer, and was looking for a replacement. The packaging of this product is fab for a drugstore brand. It comes in a glass bottle with a pump, which I think every beauty enthusiast is always pleased to see. I’m a big fan of Max Factor, and am excited to try this new launch.

Maybelline – Great Lash Mascara

I know this will shock a lot of people, but as long as this mascara has been knocking around, I’ve never tried it! It’s always been on my list of things to try, but new launches or recommendations have always taken over. For this reason I was super happy to see it this month, and can’t wait to try it. It’s in the colour Very Black, which is perfect for a dramatic lash.  

 GOSH  - Velvet Touch Eyeliner

I always check this counter out in Superdrug, but for some unknown reason have never purchased anything. I always wear eyeliner on a night out, but for me, it’s finding one that stays put that’s the problem. The write up on this product is pretty good, so I’m hoping for longevity as well as wearability.

B - Sheer Conditioning Lipstick

I love wearing these conditioning tints on my lips in the summer months. It’s nice to have a hint of colour as well as the moisturising elements banishing dry lips. The colour I received is Coral which is my favourite lip shade to wear in the summer, so perfect! The pigmentation is just right for a sheer tint. The only thing I’d say its missing is the addition of an SPF in the formula.

Vaseline – Spray & Go Moisturiser

This product is already a huge favourite of mine and I can’t recommend it enough to anybody looking for quick, easy moisturising. It’s compact, smells amazing and leaves your skin feeling great. I've been using this every day since returning from my holiday to prolong my tan and it’s been fab. I wrote a full post on this product a while back which you can read here.

Bonus Products...

Garnier – Oil Beauty Lotion

I really like the idea of this, a body lotion infused with argan, macademia, almond and rose oil, it sounds almost perfect. And at only £4.99 for a 250ml bottle, it’s a bargain as well. I can see myself picking up the full size version of this in the near future. Watch out for a full review! :)

Ghost – Eclipse

I'm a fan of floral scents, and this one didn't disappoint. In the past I have stuck to a couple of scents that I've favoured for years, but recently I've found myself branching out and buying more. This one may just make it in to my collection. 

And gracing the front of the Glossy magazine this month in the lovely Lucy Mecklenburgh. Her new website and training camps are proving very popular at the moment for people wanting to get fit for summer. My friend is currently using her subscription website 'Results with Lucy'. Maybe I can persuade her to do a cheeky guest review for your guys! :)

So that's it for this month, what did you all get in your box?
