Subscription beauty boxes have become quite the rage these days. Personally, I had never taken the plunge to participate in one but had always been intrigued by the products my friends got from theirs and by the frequent "unboxing" videos on YouTube. For those two reasons, I decided that a perfect birthday present would be a subscription to one of the many boxes that are out there. A told me he would get me whatever box I chose as a bday present, so I was off to figure out which one I wanted.

After watching a bunch of unboxing videos (Eleventh Gorgeous are probably my current favorites) and comparing many different boxes price/products etc. I decided on a box for me. 

I chose Glossybox and so far I am incredibly pleased with my choice! Glossybox is a monthly subscription box that sends you five luxury beauty products and retails for $21 per month. This May's box was actually my third Glossybox, and I thought it would be nice if I unboxed it with you guys.

The thing I love most about this box is that I always feel that the quality and size of the products makes the cost of the box more than worth it. It also exposes me to new products and allows me to try things I probably wouldn't normally purchase for myself.

Now, let's get in to what was actually in my May Glossybox.

Teeez Trend Cosmetics- Head Over Heels Nail Lacquer
This is a lovely peachy/coral colored nail polish that I have already tested out by painting it on my toes. The formula is a little runny (i.e. if your painting your toes keep those feet flat) but the color is gorgeous! I also love that the brush is thick, it makes painting your nails just that much easier.

Doucce- Mineral Matt Lipstick
I haven't had a reason to test this one out yet. The color is darker than one I might typically pick for myself but I'm intrigued by the description "...velvet matte finish. Infused with SPF 10 and vitamin E... [the lipstick] will keep lips hydrated all day, and won't feather or fade away."

Clearista- Retexturizing Gel
I'm a sucker for a good facial exfoliatant. To me there is almost nothing better than the feeling of freshly exfoliated skin. I tested this guy out in the shower and it was awesome. The beads in the gel easily buff away dead skin cells and it also claims to reduce pigmentation and skin imperfections!

GlamGlow- Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment
I was probably most excited about this product this month. I do not often buy myself face masks but I always wish I had some kind of mask product around on those lazy saturday nights when I feel like pampering myself. I am holding off on testing this out until I go to WV next weekend because A said he wants to do the mask with me. You can bet that pictures will be forthcoming. Follow me on twitter if you want to see those ;)

Sebastian Professional- Stylbrid 9
Hairspray is actually not a product that I use very often, but I was excited to get this because it's travel size and would be great to bring along on trips for those occassions when I actually do my hair and need some extra hold.

So that is my May Glossybox. I invite any of you that are interest in getting Glossybox to use this referral link to do so. If you get Glossybox or any other subscription beauty box, tell me about it below! I would love to read others posts/watch others videos.
