The Osmo Berber Hair Treatment is another product that doesn't really excite me but I have already passed this on to my mama who I think will really enjoy using it. It smells like sweeties, like those super cheap candy lollies to be precise, which is always a winner in my eyes and it promises to give a sleek finish with added body and movement. It says it's for all hair types, but my hair is so oily I can't really use any product at all in it. My mama however is looking forward to giving it a go.
The two sachets of Apivita Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Mask with grape were something I was initially disappointed with. I always find sachets to be a bit of a faff and had they have been sachets of moisturiser or body lotion I probably would have put them in my little stash of samples and forgotten about them. But at the moment I'm really into face masks and I have really been enjoying testing some out to see if they actually make any difference to my skin. This mask has lots of good ingredients to moisturise and soften the skin, so it just goes to show that you should never judge a book by its cover because I'm actually really looking forward to trying these out.
The next product I received is a shower gel & I've mentioned before that I really love getting these kinds of samples because I like trying out new scents. Summer Rising bath & shower gel from a new luxury brand called Noble Isle smells absolutely beautiful. This is a brand that really appeals to me because they are very much inspired by the British Isles and the natural beauty that it has to offer. I've just spent a good half an hour getting lost in their beautiful website and have come out with a list as long as my arm of products that I would love to try! The Perry Pear Shampoo & Conditioner sound especially gorgeous as does the Willow Song Candle and the Whisky & Water Hand Wash & Hand Lotion. If their wonderful website is anything to go by, I imagine their packaging is stunning to match!
The last product in my box this month is the Eye Smoothing Serum from HD Brows. This seems like a nice little product, it comes with a sponge applicator wand so it's quick and easy to apply and it seems to sink into the skin super quickly and nicely so you're not left with any greasy or heavy feeling residue around your eyes. I'm not super excited or wowed by it but again, I'm looking forward to giving it a try. Who knows? I might fall in love with it and think it's the best thing ever, I'll never know unless I give it a go & that's the beauty of these boxes. You really do get to try out products you never would have otherwise given a go & surely that's the whole point of subscribing!
I know that GlossyBox seem to get a lot of stick, especially over on their facebook page, whoever runs that has the patience of a saint and I tip my hat to them, but it's important to keep in mind that it is a sample service. They can't include super-duper-amazingly-wow products from huge brands every month, and in a way I wouldn't want them to because it's really nice discovering new brands that perhaps you've never heard of before and having a little look at what they have to offer. For me the stand out brand this month is Noble Isle and their fabulously luxurious looking products & I'm looking forward to dabbling in the brand a little more very soon! And I'm not saying all of this because I was gifted this box, I just think that sometimes it's so easy to lose sight of what things actually are and to get caught up in all the hype & it's impossible to please everyone all of the time. You're unlikely ever to receive a box stuffed full of make up, although I really wish someone would make a box like that because I'd sign up for sure! GlossyBox is about variety and I think they're very good at that.
So, overall this month wasn't my favourite, but there are some lovely products nestled inside that I'm excited to try! Are you subscribed to GlossyBox, or any other beauty subscription service? What did you think of the May box? Did you receive different products to me?
