glossybox may 2012: 1st birthday

Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel, Lolita Lempicka L'Eau en Blanc
& Eau de Parfum samples, Weleda face cream/body milk, Collection Lasting Colour
Gel Eyeliner,HD Brows Brow Beater via GlossyBox*

I can't believe GlossyBox are a year old already! Lots of people have been excited about the contents of the 'birthday box' so here we are! With this month's box you get an extra little mirror as a gift as well as a balloon to celebrate. My dog loves playing with/popping balloons so I blew it up for him straight away!

I don't usually care for shower gels in beauty boxes, but this one smells absolutely lovely and is described as 'an immaculate fragrance evoking the beginnings of summer' which is so perfect for the weather we're getting at the moment! It doubles up as bubble bath too which is always a winner for me as I prefer baths and always use bubbles!

The Lolita Lempicka fragrances aren't my usual choice of scent but they have definitely grown on me. They're both musky and sweet, with the new L'eau en Blanc perfume being a bit softer, I'm rubbish at describing smells but if you like the sound of that or have smelled this scent before and liked it keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow's blog post!

I'm not sure if the colours of the eyeliner will be varied in boxes as my product card has a picture of a brown pot too, so I'm going to assume everyone will get the same for now. I think a lot of people might initially be disappointed with a brown liner but it's an intense dark chocolate brown and I find brown liners make my blue eyes stand out more so I'm glad I got this. I can't vouch for its longevity though as I haven't worn makeup since the change in weather!

I'm not fond of rose scents at all so the Weleda body milk (I'm guessing by 'milch' as there was nothing in English on my packaging) isn't my top pick from this month's box, but I do like other Weleda products I've tried so I will still use this. (EDIT: Apparently the product is both for the face and the body, ohai multi-tasking!)

The HD Brows Brow Beater may well be the 'top' product in the box for most people this month as it's a current and popular brand. I think it's just a glorified clear mascara - although it conditions the hairs as it sets - but seeing as I've been meaning to buy one of those for my brows I'm really pleased this was in the box!

What do you think of the birthday box? Are you a GlossyBox subscriber?

  1. I got a different box - I got some facemasks, Hair Oil treatment and false lashes instead of the eyeliner and HD brow beater.

  3. This looks like quite a good box. I hope I get one (I seem to get them randomly, not all months!)
    You were right about the "milk". It means Wild Rose Care Milk, Pampers the skin.

  5. I got exactly the same as you, but the eye liner is in teal. Not really that blown away, I'm only really happy about the HD brows beater the rest is kind of disappointing :/ xx

  9. Definitely going to subscribe now! Can't believe that I love makeup and skincare so much, yet I haven't ever thought of subscribing! xx

  10. This months doesn't seem too bad! I don't think I would be upset if I got this one but glad I didn't because I saw some people got these ridiculously massive lashes, wouldn't know what to do with them personally!

  11. I got a slightly different box, which was mostly awesome but I wish I'd got the HD brows! I got some lashes that would be really nice, but they have diamantes on and really aren't my style at all! xx

  12. I wish I COULD subscribe to Glossy Box but as I'm from Portugal I can´t :((

    Lots of Love xxxxx

  15. I got my box today, I am really disappointed with it, I got some false lashes and all the rest were rubbish mini products, including the fifth shower gel in a row. Wish I got the HD Brows product xx

  16. This is my first box, although mine was slightly different. I received the shower gel (it smells ok but does't wow me), face masks, HD brows eye smoothing serum, 2 perfumes (which I kinda like but a little too musky for me), and Berber oil hair treatment (which smells divine so I hope it works as well as it smells!!) Not sure quite what I think yet, but do love the anticipation of what you're going to get!!

  17. I got my box yesterday and i am very disapponted with it. I get a hair oil every month what i absolutly cant use on my oily hair. I cant use anything in this box.

  18. I got this box yesterday too and I was very disappointed with it. There's nothing in the box that I would use! Felt like perhaps they have favourites... you know, people they pay to write about it on their blogs monthly or something? I dunno, I gave it to my mum instead though as I had anti ageing face masks... really?! I'm 22!

  19. This box looks awesome! I'm so jealous. I was supposed to get one but they sent it to the wrong address and refused to send me another one, GREAT! Really annoyed :( M-x

  20. First of all, that tissue paper is so cute! I love small touches like that. I think I'd be happy with brown liner instead of black. It's good to switch it up sometimes. I love rose scents, so I think I'd love the body milk, it sounds calming.
    I don't get the Glossybox myself, but I've always considered it. I don't think i'll get it though, because there are always mixed reviews.

  21. I cancelled my subscription last month then found out this would be the 1 year anniversary & was kicking myself but I'm actually really surprised at how underwhelming this box is. I thought it would be the same sort of level as the Harrods box but it just seems like any other month!

  22. It was my first box and i'm quite satisfied with the products. I received the Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel, Lolita Lempicka samples, 2 sachets of Apivita Express Beauty Cucumber Masks,a sample of Osmo berber oil hair treatment and a full size HD Brows Grow Baby Grow.

    Have a look at my review

  23. I got the Weleda milk too. How did you find out that it's for the face as well as the body? I'm a bit reluctant to put it on my face until I know for sure that that's what it's for! I even tried running the blurb on the packaging through a translation website and it just came out as garbled nonsense.
