Remember how I dubbed them the wankest and worst Glossybox ever?
I’ve been waiting patiently for the May Glossybox, to see if it had any qualities to redeem itself. Or should I say, I’ve been waiting to get the motivation to drive myself to the Post Office at the ridiculously unreasonable times it’s open. I mean, 6am – 12pm. WHAT EVEN IS THAT TIME? Pft.
Anyway, let’s not get angry before we’ve even started because I’m pretty sure that this totally affects how much I love or hate the Glossybox.
Be neutral, Corinne, you over emotional idiot.
Glossybox May 2016
Sooooo they kids at Glossybox must have seen my post about what I would put in a subscription box if I created one. Because the first thing I saw was this little packet of Proper Corn. Woo for healthy snacks. I ate this in between writing the introduction of this post and starting this paragraph, when I was briefly distracted by Ellen videos on YouTube of a girl doing a pull-up dance and a man dancing on a treadmill.
Absolute New York Velvet Lippie
Ohhh, this matte lipstick has a highly pigmented colour and the colour is lovely. It’s right up my street and I’ll probably be reviewing this at some point. I am impressed so far. So that’s 2 points for Glossybox so far – one for the popcorn and one for this.
Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy
My impressedness from the lippie has been evened out slightly by this. I’m knocking a point off because I HATE HANDCREAM IN BEAUTY BOXES.
It’s just proper boring, isn’t it.
I don’t even want to talk about it.
Bee Good Youth Enhancing Plump & Firm Moisturiser
Okay, this is a sample size, but it’s not a sachet, so can probably get a few days use out of this. I’ll give 0.5 points for this.
Also, I have no idea why I’m scoring this. It just kind of happened, so let’s go with it?
Bee Good is a well known brand, they’ve worked with many bloggers before and have a great brand that puts back some of their profits into UK beekeeping causes.
This moisturiser plumps, smooths and softens your skin.
Lockeryl Nail Gel
Well this is a new thing for me. Never heard of this brand. It’s a gel that works to improve the condition of your nails, promoting natural regrowth and helping to repair brittle nails, damaged nails and discolouration.
I have zero interest in this product myself because as depressing as this sounds, my nails are probably my best feature. LOLZ.
I’ll give it Glossybox a point though because it’s a full sized product and something different than what they usually put in their boxes.
Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara.
Yes. This is full size and A MASCARA. I love getting mascaras in boxes. It’s going in my queue of mascara and I’ll be using it soon.
This is one of the 5 new Revlon mascaras to come out. There was an option to pick which one, but I missed the boat on that so they just chucked one in for me. Doom. Hopefully this works well.
Glossybox, a point for yooouu.
This box gets 3.5 points out of I don’t know cuz I just made this game up.
I like it better than the previous two boxes, not sure if my faith is fully restored yet, let’s wait for the June Glossybox..
