As many people now know, this month is the one year birthday anniversary of Glossybox! This month's box was themed around that, and it is now the second Glossybox I have received! So here's what I got!
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 cultural riches of the British Isles."
I have a ton of shower gels waiting to be used, so this wasn't something I 'needed' to try. So at first I was a bit underwhelmed. Then I smelt it! The scent is quite unusual for a shower gel and I've seen a lot of people say they dislike the scent. But I adore it. It's a very strong, masculine scent which almost smells of aftershave. But striving through those scents to make it that touch feminine, is a burst of zesty scents. I can't wait to use this as I just love the scent! I received a 75ml sample!
Full Size: 250ml £20
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."
I was quite happy to receive two perfume samples because I love perfume samples that fit nicely into my handbag for on the go! They are easy to use samples, too, with a spray pump opposed to those awful samples you get where you have to open the top of a glass vial! They both smell absolutely divine! L'Eau en Blanc has a very mature but soft scent to it and it reminds me a little of the scent of talcum powder! The Eau de Parfum scent is more sweet and subtle! Both perfumes came in 0.8ml sample sizes!
Full Size: 100ml £65
Neal's Yard Remedies Rehydrating Rose Daily Moisture
"Hydrating rose extract and damask rose oil soften, smooth and help restore skin's natural radiance."
I received a rose moisturiser with my May Joliebox (review here) so I wasn't over the moon to receive another. But what I was really happy about is that it is from Neal's Yard! I came across Neal's Yard just a week ago through the Glossybox Facebook page and loved the website and reading all about the brand. So I am so happy to be trying out one of their products! Hopefully it won't be bad for my skin and make my oily skin worse! I received a full sized version of this!
Full Size: 45ml £12
Collection (2000) Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner
"Creating longer for perfect liner with lasting lustre is easier than ever to achieve with Collection Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliners."
I. Love. Gel. Eyeliners. Ever since trying Elf's studio gel liner, I have just been in love and I haven't used a liquid liner since! I just find them so easy to use! So I was happy to receive this and although at first I wished it had been a darker or brighter shade, once swatching it I am now really happy with the shade I got, which is gold. It goes on easily, it is really pigmented with a touch of glitter for sparkle and it has the best lasting power, ever! Far more than I would expect from Collection! I received a full sized product of this!
Full Size: 5ml £4.99
Eldora False Eyelashes
"Eldora is about beautiful, quality and value-priced lashes for any occasion."
This is the second beauty subscription box that I have received false eyelashes in, so I wasn't wowed. I haven't even used the ones I got with my She Said Beauty box yet (review here) as I haven't had the occasion to! So these shall just be joining the others in my cupboard....
Full Size: From £3.90
Overall, I liked this month's box. If I am honest, what with it being the one year birthday anniversary and a themed box, I really was hoping for more. I felt very underwhelmed with this box, expecting it to be some massive, magnificent box full of full sized items from high end brands. Obviously, that is not the point of a beauty box subscription. The point is to try out products in sample size, and occasionally you will receive full sized items too. The products are all something I am going to enjoy trying and I like every thing. So overall, no complaints from me! I also like the little Glossybox mirror which came with the box as well as the Glossybox balloon! Nice touch!
