May Glossybox

So sorry I have been neglecting my blog lately but I haven't felt up to it the past few weeks but that is a different post altogether. I'm feeling a lot better now so hopefully my blog will start to be more consistent. My May Glossybox arrived last week so I have had some time to try the products out. It was Glossybox's 2nd birthday box so I was hoping the box would be different but it was just the usual pale pink, Inside however had a lovely birthday design on the tissue paper and a neon pink bow.

The First thing I noticed in the box was the extra gift which I love! It is a handy card pouch with 20 mini pull out nail files in. These have already come in handy numerous times this week and it is probably my favourite thing in the box.
Next is a mascara by Jelly Pong Pong, in the past I haven't really been a fan of the Jelly Pong Pong products that I have received but I was pleased to get a mascara to try. The mascara retails at £15 and it is a full size sample which has paid for my box alone. It is an okay mascara but not great, I've tried better ones but I'm still happy to have gotten it.
Next was a lovely nail polish by Headline Colours which retails at £9. I got a beautiful mint colour. It dries really quickly and I would consider buying more of their polishes.
The last 3 products in the box where a shine spray by Awapuhi Wild Ginger, a liquid liner by Collection and a sample of Prime and create mixing medium by Beautiful Movements Cosmetics. The shine spray is full size retailing at £18.95 which has made the Glossybox well worth the money this month. I love shine sprays and this one can also be used as a protectant, it does make your hair really shiny and I'm really pleased with this product. The liquid liner by Collection is one that I have had before and do use regularly. The last product which is the prime and create mixing medium by pussycat doll Kimberly Wyatt's beauty range and is one that I am curious to try, it can be used to create your own liquid makeup whether it be foundation, cream blush or cream eye shadows and more. The sample isn't very big but it will be good to see what it can be used for.
Overall I was very happy with this months box and the total of the box came to £45.94 which made It really good value for money.
