The May Glossybox was a collaboration between Glossybox and Bergdorf Goodman! Hence the different colored box. 😀 It’s a really beautiful purple and for some reason my camera really couldn’t capture it (I blame the lighting haha, always blame the lighting!) so I put a normal pink Glossybox next to it so you could get a better idea of what shade it is.
As always, impeccable packaging!
Each box came with a $25 gift card to Bergdorf Goodman! You can stack them, there’s no minimum purchase needed, and you can use them on anything! The only catch is that they expire on June 15th, so you definitely need to start putting things in your cart in preparation because Glossybox usually has a delayed shipping time line. :p
BUT… MIRACLE OF ALL MIRACLES! I actually got my MAY Glossyboxes in MAY. This has never happened before. NEVER. I doubt it’ll happen again, but if it does… I might just change my mind about Glossybox. I’m still shocked that they actually made it to me before June. Granted, they did arrive on the last day of May, but I’ll take it.
First look at my May Glossybox!
Lancer Lift Serum Intense (Deluxe sample size: 5 ml/0.16 fl oz, $55) – I don’t really know what to say about this, except for the fact that it’s EXPENSIVE. 😄 I haven’t used it yet but I think this is going to be interesting to try. I love skin care so I’m definitely excited to start using this!
Alterna CAVIAR CC Cream (Deluxe sample size: 25 ml/0.84 oz, $8.40) – This smells AMAZING. It reminds me of Toni & Guy’s Casual Sea Salt Texturizing Spray. I honestly just love how it smells and I hope that it works really well too because it’s not too expensive for the full size ($25). My hair is pretty healthy for the most part and so I’m going to pass along a tube of this to my mom, who will hopefully see faster results than I would with my hair!
Aerin Beauty Rose Hand & Body Cream (Deluxe sample size: 15 ml/0.5 fl oz, $4.76) – I wanted this even though I don’t like rose or floral-scented products because I just really like lotions and creams. 😄 To my surprise, it isn’t as overpowering or terrible as I thought it might be. It’s pretty floral, but it’s also very sweet when it dries down. It’s definitely not your typical artificial rose fragrance (which gives me headaches)… it kind of reminds me of a blend between rose/lychee with an emphasis on rose. It’s like a rose-lychee macaron!
Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer (Deluxe sample size: 15 ml/0.5 fl oz, $13.50) – I don’t know if I have a use for this because I don’t regularly wear make-up. Like, at all. 😄 But this goes on nicely (it’s very light) and it is scented, but the fragrance goes away quickly. I really like the black/gold packaging.
ReVive Intensite Volumizing Eye Serum (Deluxe sample size: 3 ml/0.1 fl oz, $70) – Whoo boy, this is expensive too. I really loved the ReVive product I received in Nina Garcia’s box so I’m really happy that every box was promised at least one kind of ReVive item! This is supposed to help with diminishing dark circles and under-eye bags so I’m definitely giving at least one to my mom because she always complains about those exact problems. 😄
Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Renovating Cream (Deluxe sample size: 5 ml/ 0.16 fl oz, $33.33) – This was definitely one item I really wanted in my box this month and I’m really, really happy to have received it! This is so refreshing. It smells like fresh earth to me and I think it’s lovely. If you like gardening, I think you’d be more than okay with how it smells! It also kind of reminds me of ginseng and lotus. It’s a Korean brand and it’s targeted to making your skin soft and youthful.
So remember how I said I bought three Glossyboxes this month? WELL THEY ALL ARRIVED TODAY. And for better or for worse, I received three identical boxes! Which means I received three of every product pictured. 😀 I think I’m actually happier about this because if you look back at what I said I wanted… you’ll see that I did receive a good majority of what I wanted. 🙂
Honestly when I made that list, I didn’t really know much about the Lancer product so I just went with the one that had a more interesting description. 😄 I do wish that I had received a box with the Lancome in it but reading reviews online says that it’s rose-scented and it’s a heavy rose scent so maybe it’s a blessing in disguise to not have received it. 😄
REGARDLESS, I’m just excited about the products and the fact that with three boxes, I have $75 in gift cards to spend at Bergdorf Goodman! I think I know what I’m getting, but I’ll need to call Bergdorf Goodman on Monday to work out the details on one of the custom items.
My stash of products! 😄
Overall value: $184.99 (if you multiply it by 3… it’s a total value of $554.97 for my three boxes!)
Overall enjoyment: Yeah, I don’t think Glossybox can ever beat this month for me! Early delivery, high end products, and a $25 gift card? Nope. This is the most amazing month and I don’t see how any month after this can measure up to it. I haven’t truly tested any of these products yet, but the value and the packaging and the pure luxury of this box make me happy. 😀 Not to mention the three gorgeous Bergdorf Goodman boxes that I now have! After receiving these boxes, I’m almost regretful that I didn’t buy a fourth box this month. 😄
(each additional box is only $15, so they were a complete steal!)
