Glossy Box #1 May

If you have not received your box yet and you do not want to spoil the surprise, then this post isn't for you!

This will be a new 2 part feature on my blog every month.  I will firstly tell you the contents in one post and my first thoughts and then about two weeks later, I will review the products and order them from best - worst.  

Eagerly awaiting dispatch, my GlossyBox is finally here and it is so beautiful I cannot tell you!  It arrived at about 7.30am although I was still in bed at the time so when I saw it on the side I was so excited.  

I was really surprised at how beautifully it was packaged, after all this only costs £10 and you don't pay postage or packing.  

Once I saw the words NARS and Orgasm, I very nearly tore the packaging right open.  This card details what you get, what you do with it and why it's great.  You get a lovely little message on the back too!

So this is what Team Glossy had lovingly packed for us.  Five high end beauty samples, although the NARS looks full size to me!
*I can confirm that the NARS Orgasm Illuminator IS full sized, to buy this would be £21.50.  Thanks Team Glossy!*


1 x NARS Orgasm Illuminator 30ml
"This silky, shimmering highlighter creates instant radiance, giving a perfectly dewy spring glow."
It also says that it is flattering on ALL skin types.  Now, when GlossyBox first came about this brand was rumoured to be in the first box, which lead me hoping for something from the Orgasm or Laguna range.  I tried to swatch but you couldn't see much on the picture.  It picks up light beautifully.

1x All For Eve Red Lipstick
"This long lasting colour was designed to instil courage and poise in all who wear it."
It's a gorgeous red, one I'm dying to wear.  Here's a quick swatch:

1x Bionova Lab Bioactive Cleanser for Normal/Dry Skin
"This cleanser gently removes all traces of impurities without damaging the skin's natural barrier system."  I'm in love with my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish at the moment so I wonder if this could rival it?

1x Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Rapid Repair Spray
"Treat your hair with this vitamin packed finishing spray that immediately transforms the look and feel of hair."
It says to use this all day to revive dull and dry hair, so I will definitely be trying this out on my hair after straightening.  It smells lovely too!

And last but by no means least...

1x COMO Shambhala Invigorate Body Lotion
"Refresh yourself with this light hydrating body moisturiser."
This is best used in the morning, when I smelt it I felt really refreshed.  I can't wait to try this out on a really sleepy morning to wake me up.  

So that's it for May's box, I'm really excited for the NARS and Alterna finishing spray.  Have you got your May box? What were your first thoughts?
