Unboxing: Glossybox May 2017

13. June 2017


After my positive re-discovery of the Glossybox I was more than happy when I received another box in May, although I didn’t expect any box at all. Here is my unboxing of the German Glossybox May 2017:

Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription box containing a selection of 5 beauty and wellness products packed in a box and delivered to your doorstep. The box was founded in 2011 and has spread in over 10 countries all over the world.

As mostly, the Glossybox comes in its signature pale pink box and is beautifully packed inside with a ribbon. It contains the so-called Glossy Magazine for the month of box containing all the information about the products that were added in the boxes.

The topic of the Glossybox for May 2017 was “Wild At Heart”. May is the start of summer and outdoor time and therefore it’s the perfect month to show our wild and rough styles at the next outdoor event. Therefore, Glossybox supplies us with skincare and makeup products.

Although the magazine says that the box contains 5 of the products which are mentioned in the magazine I spotted 6 products in my box. The products that I received are super versatile reaching from hair to body, over to makeup.

got2b Dry Shampoo

There was the option to receive the got2b dry shampoo for volume or for extra freshness. My box contained the blue version for volume. I love and use a lot dry shampoo, especially for camping and festivals…or when I cut my bangs. It is nice to see that more brands start to launch their dry shampoos after there were hardly any brands 10 years ago. Now there are all kinds of scents and colors and brands available. I still have my dry shampoo from batiste in use, but I’m looking forward to try this one from got2b.

full-size product (200 ml) retails for 3.99 €

Ultrasun Anti-Age SPF30

This cream combines anti-aging and sunscreen in one product and protects your face from UV rays this summer. It is a mild sunscreen sold at the pharmacy and contains no perfume, mineral oil, PEG/PGG, emulators, silicon, ethylhexylmethoxicinnamate, octocylene, butylmethoxydibenzoylmethan, aluminium and aluminium compounds, and preservatives. The sunscreen is water-resistant too, leaves a slightly greasiness, but all in all absorbs relatively fast. I would recommend it for people who are especially on the look for a sunscreen that avoids the mentioned ingredients.

full-size product (50ml) retails for 24,00€

travel size (25 ml) retails for 13,00 € and was included

Dr. Severin Women Original Body After Shave Balsam

This is probably my favorite product from the box and I’m so sad that it is only a travel-sized version of it. This gel can be applied on the parts of your body that you have shaved or depilated to remove body hair. It contains Witch Hazel, Menthol and Rosemary and helps to calm down the skin and make it soft. Oh, and it is vegan, too.

full-size product (200ml) retails for 33,10€

The box included a travel sized tube containing 30 ml

Rodial Glamolash Mascara XXL

This lash maximizer enhances the volume of your lashes and gives a pitch-black color on top. The included travel size fits perfect into your bag. The included waxes nourish your lashes and keep them smooth and soft.

full-size (13 ml) retails for 26,50 €

travel size was included

Absolute New York Pure Metal Veil

This liquid eyeshadow is available in 6 different shades. The liquid eyeshadows have a metallic shimmer and can be worn as eye-makeup base, solo or even on the lips as highlighter.

full-size (1,5 ml) retails for 8,95 €

The box also came with two extras: the 8×4 Deo “Pure” and a sample of a pad.

Another well-balanced box in my opinion. I really like how this box and the previous one really try to have a versatile range of products. I also like how for this box everything fit into the festival/travel/summer theme. I will definitely use all the products from this box (or have already started using them).

Glossybox is available as flexible subscription for 15 € per month. There are also other subscription options available, like a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription for 14,50 €, 13,50 €, or 12,50 € per month, respectively. Check out for more information.
