May GlossyBox Review: The Birthday Edition

The Glossybox Birthday Edition is finally here! Happy Birthday Glossybox! I was very excited about this months box and I was hoping for something special.
I got a selection of 7 items in total including a Glossybox compact mirror. There was also a birthday balloon :) The box itself is the classic powder pink colour, the tissue paper is printed with bows, cupcakes and makeup and tied with a cute ribbon. I really like the attention to detail when it comes to the packaging. It is very pretty, but it is all about the content and I need to admit- this months box was average. I liked everything I received, but it isn't anything special. I received much better boxes before.
Unfortunately I had to cancel my subscription :( credit cards need to be paid off etc... I hope I will be able to subscribe again in the future, I love the idea of beauty boxes!
1.Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel-It smells lovely and fresh and is quite a good size. The full size costs £20 (sample worth £6) so it is an expensive shower gel that I wouldn't normally buy, but I am happy to try it and see if it is worth the price.
2.Eldora eyelashes- I already tried Eldora eyelashes and I loved them. The ones I got this time are covered with gold glitter, so not suitable for day time, but they would be perfect for a night out. They are very light weight and look natural. I just don't know if I will ever use them.
3.Osmo Berber Oil hair Treatment- I am very excited to try this. I have been using Argan Oil on my hair for the past 2 weeks and it really made a difference to my hair, so I am planning to get more hair oils soon. This one smells lovely  and is specially formulated to restore life, lustre and shine, the exclusive blend of oils includes the renowned Argan Oil which is rich in Vitamin E and a powerful anti-oxidant that provides intense nourishment to suffering hair.
4.Apivita Express Beauty Masks- I love face masks and I am always searching for a new miracle one :) I can't wait to try it. 
5.Lolita lempicka Si Lolita EDP and Lolita Lempicka EDP- I really like to get perfume samples in beauty boxes, as I usually stick to one perfume, so it's a nice change. I like both fragrances, but I wouldn't buy a full size.
6.Glossybox compact mirror- perfect handbag size, I will definitely use it.


  1. i love the packaging for this month. I unsubscribed to them a couple months back though and i'm so gutted because the products in this box looks lovely :) I really like the glossybox compact mirror because its so cute and the eyelashes with sparkles on are going to be fun to wear hehe. Feeling like i should subscribe to them again~ hmmmm. Hope to read some reviews of these soon. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Hmm, I hope I don't get eyelashes! Don't wear them at all, especially not with diamantes! The hair oil looks good though xx

  3. ohh those products are all really nice, i'd love to try those lashes, they look so pretty:)

  4. This looks a great box (better than the other option) x

  5. This is amazing! Glossybox just arrived in the US last month, our first box had 4 full sized items...of course we won't expect that in the future. I love those lashes!

  6. those lashes look amazing! Can't wait to see them on you!

  7. I liked the compact mirror the most, so handy. The shower gel smells really nice. I normally subscribe to Limited Edition boxes. x

  8. I love the balloon so cute, also the hair oil looks really good xx
