Glossy Box #1 Happy Birthday!

My first ever Glossy Box arrived last nigh - yaaayyy!! It was so exciting opening the beautifully wrapped box, and even more exciting to rummage through what was inside. This was the 1st Birthday Edition (Happy Birthday Glossy Box!) and inside I got a cute balloon to blow up and send a picture to Glossy Box (I pulled a silly face in mine, I'm not very good with serious) and a complimentary pocket mirror with a magnifying mirror which I will carry around everywhere as it's the perfect size. And I got the beauty products: 

Noble Isle "Summer Rising" Bath & Shower Gel: I love the smell of this shower gel, it reminds me of a warm scent of summer. It's difficult to explain but you know when you go out on a hot day somewhere rural where you pick up lovely scents of freshness and fruit. That's it, it smells beautiful. It also didn't dry my skin, which a lot of shower products do. 

Lolita Lempicka "L'Eau en Blanc" and Eau de Parfum: Well I love it! I remember when I was quite young I got a tester of Lolita Lempicka's L'Eau En Blanc in a magazine and I loved every spritz of it. I haven't changed, I still think the feminine floral sweet scent is captivating. Thinking of splurging this summer. 

Weleda Face Cream/Body Milk: This has a very strong scent of roses and although I am not the biggest fan of products smelling of that flower, the smell gradually disappears leaving your skin moisturised and soft and I found it made my skin glow. 

Collection Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner: Ok, now this one is a bit of a catch 22 - I love the colour which was a chocolate brown for me and it is so easy to apply that I enjoyed putting it on. However, the eyeliner smudged when I walked into work so by the time I took my sunglasses off I'd looked like I'd been hit in the face. So I don't believe the "lasting" side of it. I will test again several times in hope to be proven wrong because I actually really like it. 

HD Brows "Brow Beater": Love! This is a clear gel that sets your eyebrows into the desired shape. Its brush makes it so easy to apply, the product moisturises your eyebrows and sets them in place. Definitely 10/10! 

So, if you haven't signed up to Glossy Box yet, try it and you'll love it! I'm hooked. What did you get in your Glossy Box this month? Any impressive products? (http://www.glossybox.co.uk/)
