Glossybox May 2024 Review

Unboxing the May Glossybox: A Spring Awakening Finale

May is here, and with it comes a special edition of Glossybox designed to help you transition from spring to summer seamlessly. As the third and final instalment of their Spring Awakening series, this month's box is all about rejuvenation and radiance, with the products selected to get us ready for warmer days ahead.

This month's offer is 3 months of Glossybox for £10 each using code 3MONTHS.

Here's what's inside the May Edition of Glossybox:

1.Eclat Skin Micellar Water

worth £29.90

First up is a micellar water from Eclat Skin London. This micellar water is said to effectively cleanse and remove makeup, leaving your skin feeling fresh and prepped. It's infused with rosemary extract, to help soothe and calm the skin, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. Apply a few drops on a cotton pad, gently swipe across your face, and enjoy a clean, refreshed complexion.

The deluxe size in this month's box is worth a whopping £29.90 which seems astonishingly expensive for a 100ml micellar water. I'm not sure why it warrants such a high price tag when compared to other brands.

Glossies can also use code ECL70 to get 70% off all Eclat products.

2.Philip Kingsley Root Boosting Spray

worth £12

Philip Kingsley's Root Boosting Spray works to add volume and body to your roots without any residue, transforming fine, limp hair into luscious locks. Its unique formula includes surface resins for hold, protein to condition, and UV protectors to shield your hair from sun damage. The result is fuller, thicker, and healthier-looking hair - exactly what we are looking for!

3.ESPA Bergamot & Jasmine Body Lotion

worth £10

Pamper your skin with ESPA’s Bergamot & Jasmine Body Lotion. This lightweight lotion moisturizes and softens your skin, leaving it feeling nourished and delicately scented with a blend of essential oils. It's a perfect addition to your daily routine, keeping your skin hydrated and smooth as the weather warms up.

Plus it's the perfect size bottle to reuse and take on holiday with you!

The next 2 products you receive are a lucky dip from a pool of 6 different products.

4.Magnitone Wipeout Swipes

worth £8

Magnitone London’s Wipeout Swipes are eco-friendly microfibre pads which effortlessly work to remove makeup with just warm water. They're gentle enough for sensitive areas like the eyes and lips, and they're reusable, making them a sustainable choice for your beauty routine.

Whilst they can work with just water, they can also be an alternative to cotton pads and can be used for micellar water, toner, or essences. Once they've been used, simply pop them in the washing machine and they're good to use again!

5.Dr Paw Paw Original Multipurpose Balm

worth £4.25

Dr. PAWPAW’s Original Multipurpose Balm is a true multitasker. Made with pawpaw (papaya), aloe vera, and olive oil, this balm can be used to hydrate lips, soothe dry skin, and tame unruly hair. It’s 100% natural and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, making it a versatile addition to your beauty drawer.

If you don't receive the Dr Paw Paw Multipurpose Balm or the Magnitone London Wipeout Swipes, you might receive two of the following:

Makeup Eraser in Purple

worth £17.26

Like a jumbo size of the Magnitone London Wipeout Swipes, the Original Makeup Eraser is an ultra-soft, double-sided cloth that removes all your makeup using just water. The short fibre side effectively wipes away makeup, while the long fibre side provides gentle exfoliation. Perfect for refreshing your face without creating waste, this eco-friendly tool is a must-have in your skincare routine.

Ciate Watermelon Primer

worth £8

Hydrate and prime your skin with Ciaté London’s Watermelon Primer. This ultra-lightweight formula is packed with skin-loving ingredients like watermelon extract, witch hazel, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid to combat dehydration and smooth your complexion. It creates a dewy, flawless base that ensures your makeup lasts longer while leaving you looking radiant and refreshed. Proven to provide up to 24 hours of hydration, this primer is a true staple for any makeup bag.

Guvu Velvet Lip Cream

worth £22

Elevate your lip and cheek game with Guvu Beauty’s Velvet Lip Cream. Infused with bergamot, this vegan formula features a mousse-like, whipped texture for easy application. It leaves your lips feeling moisturized and full, ready to take on the world. This clean beauty product doesn’t compromise on performance, making it a versatile addition to your daily routine.

There are a range of shades you could receive but these aren't specified.

Dr Paw Paw Peach Pink Multipurpose Balm

worth £4.25

Add a pop of colour and hydration with Dr. PAWPAW’s Peach Pink Multipurpose Balm. Just like the Original Multipurpose Balm, but tinted!

This tinted balm is perfect for lips and cheeks, adapting to your individual skin tone to provide a flattering hue. Formulated with natural ingredients like aloe vera and antioxidant-rich papaya, it not only adds colour but also nourishes and repairs your skin. Apply sparingly for a subtle tint or layer up for a more intense finish.

The June Glossybox Sneak Peek!

Next month, prepare to embrace summer with Glossybox’s June edition, themed “Sun-kissed and Carefree.” This box will feature beauty essentials to keep your skin and hair in top condition during the sunny season. Glossybox has hinted at a colourful cream blush (possibly a Blursh!), a nourishing skin cream and a fruity fragrance.

Glossybox are giving current subscribers the chance to choose which fragrance they receive in their June box. Whilst they will try to provide the fragrance you choose, there is a chance that you might not receive your selection. I'd recommend getting your choices in fast! Make your selection before 27th May 2024 or it will be a surprise when you receive your box!

Here are the fragrances you can choose from:
