My May GlossyBox has arrived, all packed with goodies for this months theme of Summer's Calling. Now if you'd been about Glasgow the past couple of weeks, the statement Summer is calling seems like quite a long shot! But we can live in hope and use all the Summery products hoping they'll change the weather!
After I didn't like the April Box as much as I had hoped, it just wasn't really a selection that wowed me. But I know lots of other people who really loved it, so maybe it was just me! I tried to have wishful thinking for this months box and It really has delivered!
Just having a quick peek into the box at first I thought that personally although this is the Summer Calling Box. I think nearly every product in here would be fantastic for festivals, they're just the perfect easy but effective items that you could use quickly too.
I also had that moment of confusion when I only counted four out of five products in there too! Turns out the last one was hiding under all the tissue, mini panic over!
Me Me Me Enchanted Eyes Dual Ended Eye Wand in Midnight Storm- £6.95
Before recently I'd of looked at this and thought oh no, just because of the shades. Though recently I've learnt to love blue and I can see myself getting a lot of use from this as its actually really not a bad product at all. It has two shades, a cobalt which I think would be lovely as a bright liner or all over the lid. Then there is also a Navy, again I think it would be nice as a winged liner, or a base for a navy smokey eye. The pencil its self is creamy, though each shade has a slight silver shimmer running through it too. Its something quick and easy to play about with, especially as blue is this summers on trend shade.
Etre Belle Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel - £15.93
This is definitely one for the fridge, when the sun does finally make an appearance and you end up with sunburn! A cold helping of this on to it will feel fantastic! Aloe Vera is one of the best things to use to soothe the skin and because its a gel formula its packed with moisture. Its even a great product to just carry in your bag, or apply in the morning to be nice and cooling on the face.
Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam - £7.95
I actually cannot contain my excitement for this product, I just think its such a great concept! This would be so handy for camping at a festival, even though dry shampoo is great, you can have the whole white roots problem. This being a foam, I think it feels a lot fresher in the hair, It also smells like apples, which is one of the best smells I've smelt from a product like this.
SASS Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate - £12
Ive heard of SASS before but never tried any products, so I was very excited to see this in the box. It is basically just a product to soothe the skin after either shaving or waxing. I know everyone seems to love The Cool Fix gel by Shaveworks, especially Vivianna Does Makeup. So I'd really like to see how the two compare. As it also contains Salicylic Acid, its also exfoliating the skin, reducing the chances of ingrown hairs too.
Collection Cosmetics Field Day Lipstick in Pink Rose - £2.99
When I saw this in the tube it looks like a really washed out bubble gum pink, pair that with the blue and I feel like its more 90's Barbie. But once I actually tried the shade on its a really pretty brighter pink, which I think looks the nicest just patted on with a very fresh makeup look. The formulation of Collection lipsticks make them really comfortable to wear and they are so pigmented for the price, I'd really recommend them!

Overall I really love this months box and now I really wish I was going to a festival so I could give these a good road test. They'll be such handy products to use this summer anyway and I can already see myself making a few repurchases too!
