May Glossybox - '1st Anniversary Box'

I have to admit, this post is a little overdue but if truth be told, Cole has been a busy bee (hence the lack of Youtube videos too) so apologises for the slight delay! 

Last month Glossybox celebrated their 1st birthday and what a special birthday it was, I cannot believe Glossybox has been around for a year, time has well and truly flown!
If you follow Glossybox on Twitter then you'll know that they tweeted to say the birthday box was going to be extra special. I was so excited to receive the 1st anniversary box, so much so that when it arrived I let out a little 'YAY' to myself. 

So enough of the gabble, here's what I received in the May Glossybox!

I loved how they included a pink balloon in the box, they well and truly got into the birthday spirit!

Here's what Glossybox have to say about their '1st Anniversary' box...
"This month at Glossybox we're celebrating our 1st Birthday! The year has flown by and we are so grateful for your ongoing support. So much has happened in a year and this month is going to be one big celebration!"

I love how the tissue paper has cupcakes, makeup and number ones all over it. It fits in well with the birthday theme and it's very cute and girly! I love the packaging of this box!

Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel
"An immaculate fragrance evoking the beginnings of summer. Noble Isle is a new British bath and body brand inspired by the natural and cultural riches of the British isles."

Full Size: £20.00 / 250ml (75ml sample is worth £6.00)

There's nothing I can really say about this shower gel other than it smelt nice. It's not something that I'd ever buy (full size) as £20 is a little expensive for a bath/shower gel but it was nice to try something different from my usual Radox. 

Uniqone All In One Hair Treatment
"The first leave-on mask on the market that offers the 10 main benefits that the hair needs. The ideal partner for every day use for the best stylists and their most demanding customers."

Full Size: £13.99 / 150ml (9ml sample is worth 84p)

I really liked this hair mask and this is primarily due to it smelling like suncream, it reminded me of past holidays and it made me excited for my summer holiday this year. The mask did make my hair a little greasy but I expected it would as the majority of masks, serums etc make my hair greasy. Although the mask did make my hair greasy, it did, in fact, make my hair look shiny and soft.

Murad Clarifying Mask

"This natural clay-based formula draws out impurities and absorbs excess oil to control and prevent breakouts."

Full Size: £35.00 / 75g (30g sample is worth £14.00)

Although I don't have acne prone skin or suffer with breakouts, I still gave the mask a try. I didn't notice that the mask did anything for my skin as I have very dry skin but it may be beneficial to those who have acne, breakouts or the odd spot. 
Although the mask didn't do anything for my skin, I noticed that it had a nice clean scent and it was very easy to apply and remove. 

Eldora False Eyelashes (B126)

"Eldora is about beautiful, quality and value-priced lashes for any occasion."

Full Size: From £3.90 (Full sized product provided in the Glossybox)

I was really excited to see a pair of Eldora eyelashes in the May Glossybox and I have to say that these are my favourite thing in the box. I came across Eldora at the IMATS in Feburary and have loved Eldora eyelashes ever since discovering them. The lashes I received are perfect for the day and also the night, I think I'll be using them in my next makeup tutorial!

Lolita Lempicka L'Eau En Blanc & Eau De Parfum 

"Discover Lolita Lempicka's feminine world where Parisian chic meets fantasy fairy tale to create the perfect fragrance."

Full Size: £65.00 / 100ml ( 2 x 0.8ml samples are worth £1.30

I love trying out new perfumes so it was nice to see 2 perfume samples included in the May Glossybox. I really wanted to love the both scents but unfortunately, they both smell awful.  They're strong, overpowering and not my cup of tea at all. 

I love how a Glossybox mirror was included in the box, it was a nice touch and it's something that I'll use on a daily basis. 

Overall I liked the '1st Anniversary Box', I thought the packaging was well thought of and I loved the added extras. My most favourite thing in the box was the Eldora eyelashes, they're something I would use and more importantly, something I'd buy myself. I also liked trying out the hair mask as I'm always on the look out for a good hair product! 
I liked the products included in the May Glossybox (except from the perfume samples) and I think Glossybox went that extra mile to make the box a lot more special than usual. 

The '1st Anniversary Box' was worth £26.04 which is amazing as the Glossybox retails at £12.95.
