May Glossybox // vanityandvodka





This month was super exciting because I finally got my first ever Glossybox! I’d been toying with the idea of getting a beauty subscription box for a while, but some boxes just seemed so hit and miss I wasn’t sure. After seeing multiple blog posts reviewing Glossybox, I couldn’t resist any longer so finally subscribed to their £10 a month box.

A few days after subscribing I received my May Box, I was super happy with the contents in this box so will 100% be continuing this subscription (soz if you hate these type of posts). Here’s what I got in my May box.

Revlon Super Length Mascara (full size) £9.99

I was quite surprised to receive a full size Revlon mascara in my box.  I’ve seen this quite a lot as it’s a relatively new release so is, of course, all over the blogger-sphere.  I tried this and I actually really like it, it could 100% be an every day mascara for me.

Bee Good Youth Enhancing Moisturiser (sample) £23.50

Although this is a sample, it’s a good size sample and will last me for a couple of weeks when used every day.  It’s not something I’d pick up normally as ‘older skin’ isn’t a problem for me just yet, although I do enjoy how this feels on my skin so I may have a little peak at the other moisturisers in the range.

Absolute New York Velvet Lippie (full size) £4.93

You all know how I looove my liquid lipsticks and creams so I was super happy to receive this. It isn’t the ‘best’ I have ever tried, I would recommend a few drugstore lip products over this but it’s still pretty nice.  I like the shade, it’s creamy and feels nice on the lips when dried although the pigmentation and lasting power isn’t too great but for the price it really isn’t too bad.

Hawaiian Tropic Dry Oil (sample) £13.99

I love a good dry oil approaching the Summer time so this was happily recieved.  Although a sample, it’s a good size sample again so I don’t feel disappointed at all. I haven’t really given this ago but I’m excited to see what it’s like.

Hairon Zero Crease Hair Tie (full size) £3.99

I’ve never actually seen ‘no crease’ hair ties like this so I was pretty intrigued as to how well these worked and they didn’t disappoint.  I mean, they didn’t make a huge difference to my hair and I’ll probably stick to buying my Poundland hair ties for now but they’re pretty cool.

I was super happy with my first box and I can’t wait to receive my next box! What did you think of this months box?

    I’ve always wanted to subscribe to the GlossyBox! This box looks amazing and I’d love to try one of those Revlon Mascaras. That lip colour looks like it’d be gorgeous too 🙂
