There's nothing more exciting than getting a beauty subscription box in the mail every month!  I mean, it's like getting a present delivered to your doorstep.  The anticipated of opening and seeing what's inside is so fun! GLOSSYBOX is a wonderful subscription service that delivers amazing beauty brands to your doorstep every month.  You simply fill out a profile survey to determine what products best fit you and voila... you're all set!  I have a peek at May's GLOSSYBOX so lets look inside together shall we?

At first glance, there were a few products that immediately peeked my interest.  While i wish my box had a few more makeup items, i quickly realized that i will use every single product here which makes it so worth it!  First, I'm already a huge RITUALS fan!  Their foaming shower gels are so fun and leave my skin feeling wonderful.  I haven't tried the Zensation so I'm excited to lather this baby on!

Nioxin is a brand I've used and loved so when i saw the Nioxin System 3 Cleanser and Scalp Therapy Conditioner i knew i was in for a treat.  The sizes are big enough to really give me a feel for these products.  Many times i dread getting shampoos and conditioners because the sizes are often to small and being that i have long thick hair, smaller size samples don't cut it for me.  Thankfully these did just fine and i have enough for a second wash!  I love the 'tidbits' included in the product card.  GLOSSYBOX suggests massaging your scalp with these products for 3 minutes to increase blood flow and circulation to the scalp.  Thanks GLOSSYBOX, will do!

Next, we have a mascara i already own and love!  Benefit's Roller Lash mascara is such a powerhouse for lashes.  It's known for curling your lashes without the need of a lash curler.  The wand's brush grabs, lifts, separates and curls lashes. Since i already own the full size version of this mascara, i will add this deluxe sample to my makeup pouch for quick touch-ups when necessary.

Talika Photo-Hydra Day utilizes an amino-acid that recreates the effects of natural light on the skin so you can sport a summer glow all year long. While i have yet to use this, i can see myself reaching for it for hydration as well as to add some color to my otherwise super pale skin.

Versespa Face Moisturizing Gradual Tanner was one of those products that i was like... um not sure about this.  But when i applied this on my face and saw such beautiful, natural results this product became one of my favorites in the box.  The color looks very natural, and it doesn't have that awful faux tan smell that i dread in these types of products.  You get two tubes allowing you a few uses. Will certainly reach for this a couple of times a week for sure to keep that summer glow minus that damage from the sun's harmful rays!

In the product card enclosed in this month's box, there is also a $5 off coupon for Nioxin Night Density Rescue at ULTA.  Overall, i loved this box way more once i dove in and began to play with some of the products.  I think it's a good value and as always comes beautifully packaged in a gorgeous pink box!  Want to subscribe to GLOSSYBOX?
