GlossyBox May | Selfie & The City

After receiving my April GlossyBox I was eagerly waiting for my May box to arrive, it finally landed on my doorstep on Monday morning and after seeing it was going to be a limited edition box I was even more excited, to peel back the sticker and see what's inside. This months box is filled with delights one of them being, one of Revlon's new mascaras as they've just released a whole new collection of mascaras for every look you want/would like to achieve, which I'm pretty excited to try out.

GlossyBox have dedicated this special edition box to their favourite urban destinations, one just so happens to be New York (my favourite place EVER, one day I will go there) which is the one that I you will get 1 out of the 4 different designs they have made, each one is different, the New York one is just the cutest I was SUPER happy to open this box to see the design! The other box designs you might receive are either Paris, London or Berlin all of which are homed to their very own GlossyBox if you didn't know already.

Anyway enough rambling for once let's get on to the contents of this months box....

This months box is filled with what I'd call essentials and necessitates, starting from the left we have:

Hairon Zero Crease Hair Ties X3 - I've walked past these before in boots and always been intrigued to see if they actually work or if they are another gimmick on the highstreet. So I was quite surprised to see them in this months box.

NEW Revlon Super Length Mascara - I'm quite excited to try this as I'm always up for trying & looking for a new mascara, this one retails at £9.99 which for a drugstore mascara is a great price, this also promises to do a fair few things & well if the likes of Halle Berry wear it, it's got to be good right?!? Revlon are one of my favourite highstreet makeup brands so I'm looking forward to giving this mascara a whirl. 

Absolute New York Velvet Lippie in AVL01 RUMBA - Absolute New York is not a brand I'd heard of previous till receiving my GlossyBox, this is a lippie lip creme, this is the first things I've tired out of this months box and I already love the texture, it's very softening, glides on and very pigmented which is amazing as it just comes under £5.00 (£4.93 to be exact) the packaging reminds me of NYX which I'm really loving their makeup range at the moment. It's creamey and not cakey, it leaves a matte finish & I love a good matte lip. I had to top it up probably once throughout the whole day which is seriously good value for your money, got a feeling they are going to become another makeup brand that I fall in love with. It also smells incrediable which I know doesn't matter when it comes to lippies but it honestly smells like Creme Brulee (one of my fave desserts). I also love the colour it's a gorgeous coraly pink.

Bee Good Youth Enhancing Plump & Firm Moisturiser - This is (for me) the most disappointing item in the whole box......I've tried Bee Good products before and I personally haven't had a good experience with their products in the past, however.....times change and products develop, I'm always on the market looking for a new moisturiser anyway so I will give it a go, and I've heard quite a few things about this particular moisturiser so It'll be interesting to see if it lives up to what it promises.

Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil SPF 15 - The Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil, claims its formula is water resistant and is designed not only to keep your skin super soft and moisturised but to also protect your skin from sunburn. As we are currently having glorious weather here in the UK, I've got a feeling this bad boy is going to be used quite a lot. It will also be good to see if it actually is water resistant. 

They also included a bag of popcorn which as I type this on a fine sunny day, is slowly being demolished. With the grand total of this box being worth well over £35+ that small £10 (plus P+P) is well worth every single penny.

All in all this months May GlossyBox is very good and it's fun to try out lots of new products, seriously if you haven't subscribed to GlossyBox yet you really need to they are worth the money and you do get your moolahs worth. That and who doesn't love trying new beauty products out?
