Glossybox May 2013 - Birthday Edition

May marks the 2nd Birthday of Glossy Box.  Mine arrived this morning and this is what I received inside:- 

AWAPUHI WILD GINGER Shine Spray full size £18.95
They say this product adds extra shine to your finished hair do after styling - It smells really nice and it is the full size can, I am quite looking forward to trying this.

ROGER & GALLET R&G 'Fleur de Figuier' (samples) full sizes cost from £9-£32
Perfume Sample, Shower Cream and Body lotion.
This smells gorgeous a very sweet floral scent.  I can't help but feel disappointed when we are just given sachets.  .  It will be used up very quickly.

JELLY PONG PONG Fairy Lashes Mascara full size £15
Really pleased with these, the product looks really nice and the packaging was lovely (I forgot to include the box in the picture).  I love the name Jelly Pong Pong, it makes me chuckle.

HEADLINE COLOURS Headline Colours Poolside Party Nail Polish.  Full Size £9
These are limited edition.  It is the first i've heard of this brand.  I am pleased with the shade of red I received, I wouldn't have been as pleased to receive any of the others.

BEAUTIFUL MOVEMENTS COSMETICS (Formerly BM Beauty) 
Prime & Create Mixing Medium (Sample)  full size £20 for 20g
This is a new product and is the recent edition to ex Pussy Cat Doll Kimberly Wyatt's beauty range.  It is a clear aloe vera based gel which can be turned into a cream foundation, blush and eyeshadow.
'Mix with foundation for an airbrush effect, with powder blushes and bronzers to create a cream tint, or with eye shadow pigments to create liquid eyeliners'
This product really intrigues me, I only wish we were given a little more.

GLOSSY NAIL FILES - extra item

All in all, I can't really complain about this box, everything is really nice and with the Shine Spray and Mascara alone I have made my money back on this essentially.

Let me know what you got, leave a link if you like - have you been disappointed or happy with your boxes?

    1. I don't normally have a problem with Glossy box, it is Birch Box that tend to let me down, I am thinking about cancelling the Birch Box subscription. I do enjoy getting my GB every month and every so often you get a ltd edition box which are always really pretty.

  3. This looks fab. I have never signed up to any of the boxes but the fact you got some full size items makes it a lot more appealing.
    Great Post

    1. Hi Rebecca, I agree, i've had better boxes in the past - i've also had worse ones too. At the moment though GB are definitely ranking higher than Birchbox x

  6. I received the bm gel, sunflower lavender lotion, the Caudalie oil,the nail polish in the colour 'centerfold'(not nice), and my favourite thing in the box Givenchy Dahlia Noir sample. It smells amazing....although I feel I got one of the better boxes going ....I felt overall disappointed by it. I think the birthday vibe got me a little to hopeful.

  9. I got pretty much the same as you but got the 'centrefold' colour for the polish, I really like it and think we got the better version of the boxes when it comes to value for money :)
