May 2012 GLOSSYBOX 1st Anniversary

This month's GLOSSYBOX celebrates their 1st Birthday - a year has certainly gone quick and also this month's box seems to have come around quicker than usual! The products came beautifully packaged as normal using a pale pink box but with a twist - printed birthday tissue paper with bows and cupcakes and anniversary ribbon. This month's box contained five products plus two bonus items! If you visit GLOSSYBOX and enter the code BIRTHDAYPROMO at the checkout you can blag yourself FREE postage & packaging until the 31st May 2012! So what's inside my box?









Noble Isle Summer Rising Cornish Hedgerows Bath & Shower Gel (worth £6)
I have heard of the Noble Isle brand which was launched last year but haven't had chance to try any of their products so this is a welcome edition. The packaging is lovely and its a nice generous sized sample and perfect for travel. The fragrance evokes the beginning of Summer, with toning elder flower and antioxidant charged gooseberry with clean notes of orange blossom, moss and cut grass. The scent reminds me of my Dad (he always smells of CK One) its fresh and summery I'm looking forward to trying this out when I'm away next week for 3 days. 


Lolita Lempicka L'Eau an Blanc & Si Lolita (worth £1.02)
I already own the Lolita Perfume that I received as a gift and I'm not overly fussed on receiving perfume samples in Beauty Boxes unless it's a 'luxury sample' mini bottle rather than the vitals. I think it's only acceptable to throw them in as an added extra, rather than being classed as one of the five samples. This aside, it is nice to discover new fragrances, but it is a tricky one as I am quite fussy about scents, I like the Si Lolita but not so much on the L'Eau an Blanc which I'd think would be more suited to an older lady. 


Weleda Wild Rose Face Cream (worth £2.32)
I have tried a couple of Weleda products in the past and really enjoyed using them and also love that the brand only contain natural ingredients that are grown bio-dynamically to help restore health and maintained well being. I received their Wild Rose Face Cream which I believe is quite a rich formula to be used as a night cream.  

Uniqone All in one Hair Treatment (worth 84p)
The first leave-on spray mask on the market that offers the 10 main benefits that the hair needs. This sounds very interesting and promises to: Repair dry/damaged hair; heat protection; silkiness & smoothness; hair colour protection; de-tangling; adds body, shine and prevents split ends. I can't wait to try this out!

Let's Go Lashes (worth £8.95)
This is the only full size product in the box this month and a brand I hadn't heard of. These are made from 100% human hair - which is a bit strange? I tried these on yesterday and they were very easy to use, very natural looking and re-usable. 

*Bonus Items*
A handy Glossybox Mirror and a pink balloon to celebrate their birthday! To help celebrate their Birthday they are asking to pose with your Glossybox Balloon and post the picture on their Facebook or Twitter profile! They are also running some competitions and have hidden 140 Golden Tickets inside the boxes this month to win a prize - were you a lucky winner?! 

This month's box contained one full size product, along with two bonus products. I am most excited about trying the Noble Isle Bath & Shower Gel and the Hair treatment and I was impressed with the lashes but disappointed with the perfume samples. I have totted up the value of the products and it comes to roughly £19.13 which  for £10 (plus £2.95 P&P) is not bad. You can find out more and order your own GLOSSYBOX here. 

What do you think of this month's First Birthday GLOSSYBOX? Did you receive anything different to mine?
