Have you tried the May edition Glossybox yet?
In my opinion, this is my favourite Glossybox so far, I’ve seen others say this is the worst yet! Each to their own, personally I love a little pamper session now and then.
From the dreamy, pastel design to all of the cruelty free pamper treatments in this box, this month has certainly been a great treat to review!
This month’s box did take a little longer than usual to turn up, so I’m sorry for the delay in this months Glossybox review. Even still, I was able to try out all of the products within a couple of days and make a start on this post.
I can’t really blame them for being super busy, they have some exciting stuff happening soon! But we’ll talk about that at the end of the review.
Ahhh, this month’s Glossybox is ideal for me.. dedicated to pampering, day dreaming and relaxing! All of the products in this month’s box will have you feeling like you’re floating away on a cloud! And they’ve even thrown in a little extra treat this month too!
So let’s get started, what’s in this month’s pretty little pamper box…
What’s Inside My May Glossybox:
- Gelspa – Just For Feet Luxury Jelly Foot Soak – 1 Use – RRP £4.99
- Maria Nila – True Soft Shampoo – 100ml – RRP £3.98
- Maria Nila – True Soft Conditioner – 100ml – RRP £4.99
- Trifle Cosmetics – Praline Palette – Full Size – RRP £15.55
- Kueshi – Facial Make Up Remover – Full Size 100ml – RRP £10.50
- EXTRA TREAT! We Are Tea Sample
Value for money wise, the box is only a total value of £40 this month, but that’s ok, I do love cheap, great working products too!
So let’s find out a little bit more about the May Glossybox products and how they worked for me..
Gelspa – Just For Feet – Luxury Jelly Foot Soak
Sit back and give your feet a treat! GelSpa’s vegan-friendly Jelly Foot Soak is a specially developed powder which turns water to gel – yes miracles do exist! Let the aromas of lavender and lemongrass help you to relax after a long day, while the soak gently moisturises and soothes your tired feet. Afterwards, simply add the second step to magically turn the gel back to liquid! – Glossybox
On first impressions I decided that I liked this product least of all. I could think of nothing worse than dipping my sensitive little feet into gooey, slimy, sticky sludge!
“What stress relief is this?!” I thought to myself while imagining how big the clean up was going to be.
Later, I learned that there are actually 2 packets inside of the box. One to create the jelly, and another to dissolve the jelly!
I’ve listed the steps taken below.
Fill a bowl large enough for both of your feet with around 4 litres of hot water, then add packet 1 to the water. Yay its purple!!
Leave it alone for a couple of minutes, then begin to mix the water by hand.
Eventually it should form into some soft jelly, like in the photo above!
When its at the desired consistency, stick your tootsies in! Make sure to give your feet a wiggle around and massage the gel in by rubbing your feet together. I left my feet to soak for around 15 minutes.
When you’re finished having your foot soak, add the contents of packet number 2 to the water, while keeping your feet remained in the bowl of water. Mix the powder from packet 2 into the jelly with your feet, in less than a minute the jelly will change to water before your eyes!!
How do my feet feel after?
Well I never really had hard or dry skin on my feet to begin with, but even still, somehow, my feet feel like they have a new layer of skin.. the carpet feels different under my feet now!! I love it, at £4.99 I’m definitely going to pick up some more!

Maria Nila – True Soft Shampoo & Conditioner
Wash away your worries with this vegan shampoo from the Swedish brand Maria Nila. Sulphate and paraben free, the gentle formula, softens, moisturises and strengthens the structure of your hair. With a recipe for super shiny locks and frizz fighting ingredients, what’s not to love? – Glossybox
This gorgeous conditioner completes your dreamy haircare duo. Designed to reduce frizz and the loss of colour associated with washing and heat styling, this is a true multi-tasker. Try using this as a deep conditioning mask. Apply to damp hair after shampooing and leave on for 3 minutes before rinsing thoroughly to reveal a shiny smooth result. – Glossybox
I’m always game for a hair product. My hair is so dry, frizzy and curly, so I can certainly tell when a product has made a difference my hair.
To start with, the shampoo smells beautiful, so fresh and rejuvenating. My hair felt good after use, it wasn’t particularly soft but it did feel strong.
The conditioner smelled just as impressive as the shampoo, and while running it through my hair I could feel that it was going to work well. It coated my hair nicely and stayed in place while I left it to absorb into my hair follicles for a couple of minutes.
I’m actually amazed at how well this conditioner works! I’ve used hair masks that haven’t made my hair feel this good!
I highly recommend giving these two a try.

Trifle Cosmetics – Praline Palette
Find a palette of six pigmented eyeshadows in this cute pastel packaging. The intense shades range from a neutral bronze to wearable khaki and deep eggplant. Formulated to be creamy yet vivid, these unique powders have a velvety smooth texture and are 100% vegan plus free from any nasties! – Glossybox
What a cutie little palette!
But whoa, in this cute little packaging there is some serious pigment power!
I was simply amazed at the colours I was getting from the tiniest, weeniest little dab with the brush!
Absolutely in love with the purple, I can’t wait to try out some looks with it!

Kueshi – Facial Make Up Remover
Cleanse your troubles away with this double effect, calming makeup remover from Kueshi. The clear solution is rich in soft oils and works with the blue solution to remove makeup gently. It will leave your skin feeling refreshed so you can drift off to sleep cleansed and happy. For best results remember to shake before using. – Glossybox
This makeup remover is everything!
Firstly, its amazing to stare at and wobble as it has two layers.
Secondly, it works!!!
This stuff just keeps on taking off the gunk. 10 cotton pads later you can only wonder where its pulling it all from!
Removing eye makeup is literally as easy as a few sweeps, with this being an oil, the makeup just slides right off your face onto the cotton pad.
Thirdly, holy moly does my face feel soft after I use this. I expected it to feel oily and greasy but it doesn’t at all.
My new favourite makeup remover!

EXTRA TREAT! We Are Tea Sample
We’ve teamed up with this ethical, London based tea company to treat you to one of these amazing teas!
Earl Grey: With a delicate aroma of bergamot fruit and a sprinkling of blue cornflowers, this black tea offers a refreshing infusion.

All that pampering is hard work, so Glossybox have popped in a free sample of We Are Tea’s delicious blend, to put the cherry on the top of your pamper session.
Personally, I’m not really a tea drinker, but coffee? Bring it my way!
This tea did have a very unique flavour, I actually really enjoyed it, but I’m still all for my coffee!
Chip certainly enjoyed it!

My Overall Thoughts Of The May Edition Glossybox
22.5/25 stars! This isn’t including the We Are Tea sample as this is a free extra in the box.
All in all, I’ve absolutely loved the Glossybox daydreamer pamper box.
Its great to take some time out now and then and focus solely on you, its not selfish, its needed! Otherwise we get stressed out, get ill or have negative thoughts which leave us feeling down.
