She Said Beauty Box June 2012

As you may have guessed I am a fairly big fan of Glossybox so when an offer for She Said Beauty box appeared on Wowcher- I just couldn't resist signing up.

The offer was a 3 month subscription for the price of 1! Plus it  comes in a pound  cheaper than GB per month so it seemed like a good way to trial the company and their service.

This is my June Box:

And this is what I got in my June box:

A very exciting box- I'm sure you'll agree!

Close ups of the products and my opinions after the jump! :)

Pacman Nail Art Waka Waka Waka

Another day another nail post- thinking of renaming the blog to 'Minnie Burton Nails' but it doesn't seem quite as catchy! :)

I did these with Barry M Nail Paint in shade Black, Nail Art Pens and Models Own Topcoat.

I used red diamantĂ©s for cherries and a black one for Pacman's eye.

I'm still getting used to using nail art pens and this was my first attempt. I don't think it was too bad but I hope I improve soon! :)

King and Queen Crown Inspired Nails for the Jubilee

Well I'd be the odd one out if I didn't try any Jubilee/Royal themed nail art... so over the Bank Holidays I did my friends nails.


Not wanting to be too traditional we decided on Black with Gold.


I used Rimmel Lasting Finish in Black Cab and did the polka dot pattern and jewels with my Nail Art pens from Topshop 

I need to learn how to be a bit neater as I got paint on the cuticles which you can see in the photos.. :( but my friend is very sweet and was going to soak it off in the shower... bless.

I do love that Queenie crown.

Glossy Box May 2012 UK Birthday Edition Review

My Second Glossy Box arrived! This time it is the one year Anniversary Birthday Glossybox. 

I was expecting BIG things for this Glossybox-it's the birthday edition after all! I knew mine had arrived Thursday but wasn't going to be able to get home to open it till Friday so I hurriedly looked on-line for other bloggers' reviews and comments and the reactions weren't good. So when I got home to finally open the box I wasn't expecting anything good in a bid to not get my hopes up.

This was the contents:

In my box I got:
  • 1x Osmo Berber Oil (Full Size 100ml) 
  • 1x Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath and Shower Gel (Sample Size 75ml)
  • 1x Lolita Lempicka Perfume (Sample Size 0.8ml)
  • 1x Si Lolita Perfume (Sample Size 0.8ml)
  • 1x Eldora False Eyelashes (Full Size)
  • 1x Apivita Intensive Hydration Mask with Honey (Full size 2x 8ml sachets) 
  • 1x Glossy Box Compact Mirror
  • 1x Birthday Balloon 

Initially I was disappointed- the box was full but not with things I wanted or liked. I put it straight down and had a cup of tea.  But by the time I'd finished my tea I'd decided that the box wasn't actually that bad!  

The shower gel is lovely it reminds me of my favourite perfume as a teenager CKOne. It is also a lovely quality that rivals the Molton Brown shower gels. 

I was also very lucky to get the hair oil. This was a full size item that retails at £19.99 so I'll be keen to give this a go, I've never used a hair oil but my locks are in need of some serious TLC at the moment, plus it smells like Haribo Cherries! :) 

I am also pleased I got the face masks. 

I currently don't have any type of face mask I'm a little sceptical they work so it will be good to try them- I hope I can be proved wrong. Again this is a great item as I got two sachets, although I am a little worried about the honey fragrance. If it's anything like the Burt's Bees body cream last month it will be sickly sweet! 

Can't say I'm in love with the eyelashes.I do wear false eyelashes occasionally but not ones caked in glitter,especially not red glitter! I'm the crazy girl that likes her fake nails and eyelashes to look as Natural as possible so these aren't going to make an appearance on a night out for me. However being the optimist I am the Queen's jubilee is immanent so maybe I can wear them in an ironic kinda way... but quite frankly they are  awful. 

I also got the two perfume samples. Disappointed isn't the word. They smell terrible and don't last. I also think I could have probably picked them up free from Boots. I'm not going to say any more on them. 

Finally the two bonus birthday items. The balloon and the compact. 

I like the compact, I needed one and this is a good size quality mirror with one side being a magnifyer. The balloon was novel and is a clever bit of marketing on Glossy Box's part. 

In my opinion my May box was ok and perhaps if it hadn't been the 'BIRTHDAY' box I may not have been so disappointed because I was expecting something a little better. It's not bad enough for me to cancel but if I continue to recieve the same quality I will be unsubscribing.

What did you get in your box? What did you think? Was it worth the money this month?
