GlossyBox MAY 2016 - UNBOXING

Hi ladies! Today, I was planning to blog about something completely different, but on Monday I got a lovely surprise. My May GlossyBox came in the post, and I could not leave you hanging so I decided to blog about this. This month, the boxes are not the plain pink boxes but a collectable "City Break" edition. Also, every box got a pack of healthy popcorn. I ate mine straight after opening the box ;).You could get a box with New York, London, Paris or Berlin illustrations. Mine was the New York edition. Let's get started!


1. Hairon Zero Crease Hair Tie - €4.95
So, this is the first thing that I noticed in my box. I have heard many things about those hair ties but was never convinced to try them. Now I actually have the chance to. To be honest I am curious and I am excited to try them. This is a full size product and there was 3 hair ties in the pack,

2. Absolute New York Velvet Lippie in Rumba - €6.10
I was absolutely thrilled when I saw a matte lippie in my box. This is not a liquid lipstick but a lip cream that dries completely matte. I always wanted to try the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, but this seems like a nice alternative. I will get the NYX one too though and update you shortly. The colour that I received is called Rumba which is a bright peachy colour. This is a full size product.

3. Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil SPF15 - €7.25 for 100ml
I think GlossyBox knows that I am going on holidays because so far all the products are not only perfect for travelling. This dry oil has a beautiful golden sheen. I would be perfect to wear at night, because of that gloss. The only thing that throws me off, is the smell. It has a strong chemical smell, that may not suit some people. I am willing to overlook the smell because the product itself is great. This is a travel size sample.

4. BeeGood Youth Enhancing Plum & Firm Moisturiser - €11.10 for 15ml
I love getting skincare products in my GlossyBox. I'm always willing to try out new stuff. If I like it, I will buy it - unless it's super expensive. Girls, this product is expensive. This sample values at €11.10. Because of that, I can't wait to use it and see if it's worth it.

5. Revlon Super Length Mascara - €14.99
Okay, so apparently I had the chance to choose my mascara type. Unfortunately, I didn't see the email and GlossyBox chose a mascara for me. I would've chosen the volume one, but I guess the length one is okay too. I have used this mascara and damn... it lengthens. I use it more as a "primer" before applying my Catrice Jet Lash Volume Mascara. The brush though is huge, but I can work with it. This product is full size. 

So that is all for today. As you may have noticed I have included some coupon codes for you, if you want to try out some stuff and not pay the full price ;) You can also subscribe to GlossyBox on the GlossyBox Website. The overall value of this month's box is €44.39, which is the lowest value that I've ever gotten, but I'm definitely more liking the products. It is still more than you would pay for a monthly box which is €14. 

Would you use any of the products that in got in my "New York" box?

Thank you all for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post!
