I finally received my first GLOSSYBOX after months of anticipation for it to be released in the US. The following products were included in the May box:
Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel
I loved this product! It felt so silky, smooth and hydrating. The only thing I wasn't so pleased with was the scent. It was a little heavy and perfumy(?). It actually smelled exactly like my Olay night cream.
Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick Copper No. 202
This was probably my least favorite in the box. Copper is definitely not a go-to lip color for me, and the taste was so strong and terrible. However, I will say that it gave a really nice surprising sheen and the signature Burberry plaid detail on the lipstick itself is a nice touch.
Marvis Whitening Toothpaste 
First of all, how great is that packaging? I loved the retro look. I really liked that this toothpaste gave a nice light minty aftertaste. I hate brushing my teeth and taking a drink only to taste nothing but toothpaste. It was very foamy and really seemed to polish up my teeth, but there was a gritty, dry feeling in my mouth afterwards. Nothing too unpleasant!
Phyto Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask for Dry Hair
Ok, so I can't really say much because I haven't tried this yet. I'll be getting my hair done soon, then going on a trip to the beach, so I kind of want to save it for that since I'm sure my hair will be needing some SOS.
Zoya Summer 2012-Beach and Surf Collection in Rory
This nail polish was a lovely purplish pink color with loads of fine silver glittery shimmer! It really is quite lovely, I'm just not a glittery person when it comes to nail polishes. So personally, I don't like the color but the product itself is really great quality and paints on excellently!

A bonus GLOSSYBOX blush brush "crafted from the finest goat's hair" was included in the box as well! Poor goat.

Overall, I was happy with the first GLOSSYBOX! I've already placed my order for the next and am anxiously awaiting the arrival. If you have any more questions about GLOSSYBOX or the products I mentioned leave a comment!

Also, don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY that's still going on! EVERYONE will receive a $15 Miinto gift code!!
