Glossy box May 2014 review

Today I'll be reviewing my May Glossy box. The summer beauty edit edition with Superdrug.

Glossy box have teamed up with Superdrug who are celebrating their 50th birthday to bring a box full of beauty goodies, four of which were promised to be full sizes plus some little extras.

Here's my box:

As always I'll review the items in order of which products I was most pleased to receive:

Firstly I received Maybelline New York colorshow crystallize nail polish in Nearly black. (they should know by now they can't go wrong giving me polish!!)

It's a gorgeous polish full of sparkles in a blackened base. I'm looking forwards to wearing this!
full size: £3.99

Next I received B. sheer conditioning lipstick in Flamingo. This is a gorgeous colour that looks and feels like a tinted balm but the colour can be built up for more opacity.
full size: £6.99

Next up is scholl velvet smooth overnight mask, which claims to hydrate your feet for up to 24 hours. I have only used this once and I can honestly say that I've noticed a big difference in the rough skin on my heels. A few more uses and I'm confident that my feet will be silky smooth! 
full size: £7.99

Collection- Bronze Glow Mosaic in no2 radiance. For quite a cheapy brand I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this bronzer. The different coloured mosaic pieces blend together for a sunkissed glow. Definitely a much more affordable version of the iconic Guerlain Terracotta bronzer which costs £31.05 whereas the collection costs:
full size: £2.99 

John Frieda Frizz-Ease original 6 effects serum. I hate receiving hair products and as my hair tends to lean to the oily side it definitely doesn't need serum! However my Nan who has regular perms has already claimed this, so It wont be going to waste!
full size: £3.99

Also included were two samples: Garnier oil body lotion and Ghost fragrances Eclipse. It's nice to get a perfume sample, not as one of the five main items but, as a little added extra.

So all in all this months box has made up for my disastrous box last month (which oops I never got around to reviewing!) I was promised 4 full size items and I received 5, which was very pleasing! All of which I will use with the exception of the hair serum. I must just reiterate how much I love the foot mask-it really works! Great as it's getting to sandal season! 

Price of box and P&P: £13.25
value of contents: approx £25.95
