This is my third box back as a Glossie. Let’s get right to it!

The product info card is now a pamphlet with exclusive offers and product details.

May’s Theme is GLOSSY Picks #GLOSSYpicks

Given the years of beauty experience under our belts, we know just how important it is to treat your skin, hair, body and nails with care in order to both look and feel good. That’s why we decided to bring you a pre-summer pamper session with our GLOSSY Picks box in an effort to get back to the basics. As you’re about to see, the GLOSSYBOX team decided to select their go-to products for you to enjoy as much as they have. The items enclosed will make you feel light on your feet and ready to conquer the months ahead!

I have to give a mention to the lovely packaging - however, I wish I could opt for an eco-friendly option as these boxes are piling up.

First look!

VITRY Nail Repair Care - Sample Size (4 ml, $8 US)
Vitry's Nail Repair Care is the answer to all of your brittle nail problems. This effective solution promises to strengthen your nails after two weeks of application so you can both see and feel a major difference.
I don’t use nail products but my Mom will definitely love this repair care for her brittle nails.

Rodial XXL Lip Liner in Nude – Full Size ($22 US)
Fuller, more defined lips are on the horizon! This long-lasting, waterproof formula will stay put and keep lips looking smooth and plump with a matte dusty pink hue.
This is a gorgeous shade. It’s waterproof and has a plumping complex. It lasted all day and it is a perfect colour for summer.

The Spa To You Deep Pore Cleansing Brush & Massager - ($9 US)
The Spa To You Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush and Massager is specifically designed with silky soft bristles and silicone cushions to deeply cleanse and gently massage the skin to improve microcirculation.
I’ve been debating lately if I needed a facial brush as I already have pretty good skin. I am happy to have received this, so I can try it out.

Kevin.Murphy Hydrate-Me.Masque - (3.4oz, $19.80 US)
HYDRATE-ME.MASQUE: A repairing and smoothing masque infused with rosehip & evening primrose oil, both of which promote the renewal of damaged hair follicles. Other ingredients include Kakadu plum and seaweed to deliver hydration and moisture!
I don’t regularly use conditioner as I find it makes my hair greasy. I do however use hair masques and leave-in treatments on the daily. This product smells amazing and it left my hair soft! It seems to be of very good quality.

Emma Hardie Skincare Moringa Cleansing Balm - Sample (15ml, $6.52 US)
This award-winning daily cleanser takes your beauty routine to new heights with its creamy texture and moisturizing ingredients like Moringa seed extract, Wild sea fennel, and essential oils of orange, neroli and mandarin.
I am always open to trying new cleansers, and according to various online reviews, this is a good one. This is a tiny sample though, not typical for Glossybox.

Lastly, we received a voucher to purchase a sonic makeup brush for only $45.

The May Glossybox included five products, valued at $65.32 US. The value seems to be on the lower end this month for Glossybox, and only two products were full-sized. There was a nice mix of products: hair care, nail care, skin care, lips and a brush. Click here to see some of the other products that were available to subscribers in May as each box is only a variation. I’m satisfied with this month’s box, but am hoping for a better value next month.
