Well, it’s official I’m a Glossie. If you’re not familiar with this term it’s what Glossybox refer to their army of fans and I’m now officially a convert.

Having received my second beauty box from the fabulous team I can’t even describe how excited I am for next months already. For now, though let’s take a look inside May’s box.

Arriving last week I immediately pulled back the seal, threw open the pink box, ripped open the tissue paper to discover what was inside. On top was a £50 gift voucher for Mockberg. They stock the most gorgeous (and Instagram-worthy) watches, yes they do have rose-gold!! So it’s worth checking them out.

Second up and my personal hero product of the box, Dr Pawpaw. You may have seen this product before, if you’ve used it, you’ll know how much I absolutely love it. If you have never used it before then prepare to be amazed.

This product is an allrounder, use it to tame them brows, use it on chapped lips. Got babies? It’s great for nappy rash and also fantastic as a skin protector. You can also use it for taming your mane!

Blush is one of those products I couldn’t live without and after last month’s contour stick, and the addition of this month’s Ruby blush, I feel that my face is going to become a walking, talking Glossybox advert! This Summer hue is absolutely gorgeous. The soft powder is light and applies perfectly with a glow to the skin. Applying a small amount to the apple of my cheeks is perfect for that healthy Summer glow.

If you know me, you’ll know I’ve got a brush obsession. Cheek, eye, lip, foundation, blusher, powder, eye, eye, more eye, I can’t get enough of a good makeup brush! To discover an eyeshadow blending brush (priced at £7.95) in this month’s edition I was super excited. Naturally, I had to have a play about creating a smoky eye with this new brush and my favourite all time Urban Decay palette Vice Reloaded. These brushes are a soft muted grey with pink branding, the lightweight but substantial handle is easy to use and the bristles are made from luxe fibres which are super soft.

The next item I pulled from this month’s Glossybox was Scrub Love, an activated charcoal, avocado and aloe vera body scrub. I’ve used a body scrub only once before and unfortunately, it wasn’t for me. These scrubs seem to be in vogue at the minute and I do have to say from previous experience the coffee and coconut one I’ve used leaves your skin polished and buffed and super soft. In actual fact, I think despite not liking the feel I may just have to go and shower to remove the remainder of my spray tan with this scrub.

Finally a moisturising sorbet from Caudalie. I don’t know about you but I absolutely love moisturiser but I’ve got to put it on in secret. Why? Well when my dog catches the scent of it on your hands, face or arms all he wants to do is lick it. This Caudalie sorbet is divine. It smells gorgeous and is an amazing luxurious cream.
