May Glossy Box

So my MAY Glossy box arrived JUNE 5th. So it was my first one and I was already not too impressed that it was late. Anyways heres what it looked like:

This is the cute packaging it came in. I really liked it!

The contents:

1. Curel Foot Cream 
100ml $3.99

2. Simple Eye Makeup Remover 
Full size is 125ml/$9.99 and sample was 56ml so approx $4.48 worth

3. Simple Facial Gel Wash
Full size is 150ml/$9.99 and sample was 50ml so approx $3.33

4. Iman Lipstick
Full size in "red" $16

5. Sebastian Professional Volupt Shampoo
Full size $15

I have to say I was the most excited about the shampoo because I actually had run out and was putting off buying some because I figured I would get one in this box. Sebastian has a great reputation too. I've used it once and I like it so far. I'm kinda "meh" on the Simple products, and also on the lipstick because I'm not too familiar with the Iman brand, although I will keep it for my red lipstick collection.

The one thing I didn't like is I feel they are misleading you with the prices they print on the card. The Simple products I got, on the card it said they were both worth $9.99 which I figured was weird and an internet search confirmed thats not true. 

So overall, so far I'm not overly impressed with Glossy box but I'm not hating it either. Not impressed with it being late and the misleading info on the card, but a big plus on the full size professional brand shampoo. So I would give this probably a 6/10.

The Iman brand is actually for "women of color." But can't go wrong with another red :)

I use the Simple facial clothes and really like them- clean feeling, and gets the job done.

I hope your June box comes soon!

I just got my first Glossy Box too. I'm surprised that I didn't get any shipping /tracking info and all of a sudden it appeared in my mailbox. I receive similar items are yours.
