Oh my, i love this months beauty samples in the April edition of GLOSSYBOX. I have been a little disheartened over the previous months boxes. I seemed to always get the crappy box and felt a little underwhelmed. I was seriously considering cancelling my subscription, i said i’d wait and see what was in this months box and low and behold its in my opinion their best box yet.
GLOSSYBOX have named this months box their ‘Natural Beauty Box’ All the products are made with natural ingredients. The Box itself is biodegradable. Not that i will be throwing it away as i think they make great make-up and nail polish storage. Right so what did i receive in my box…..
I am delighted with the range of products in this months GLOSSYBOX – first off there is a lovely Lip Balm from Figs & Rouge which is described as 100% Pure, 100% Natural and 100% Organic. I always carry a lip balm in my handbag and am looking forward to use this natural one. I received the Cherry Vanilla one. This is a FULL SIZE product 8ml retailing for £3.29 so thats great.
Next up is a body lotion from Burt’s Bees. I have a few products from this company already like cuticle balm and lip balm and really like them. This Body Lotion is not my favourite scent but it wont put me off using it. It’s a Milk and Honey Body Lotion and claim its nourishment that lasts up to 24 hours and is 99% Natural. This is a great size sample at 70g, full size would be 190g. I can’t live without body lotion and this dry wintery weather has meant my skin is in need for body lotion and i will i am sure enjoy using this.
Now this next product is one i have not heard of before, this is what i love about these beauty boxes you get brands you have heard of and even used before as well as ones you are not aware of. Monu is a brand that i have not used before, i received a Moisture Rich Collagen Cream. This is a good product for my age range as being almost 34 i have heard that after the age of 30 your skin stops producing collegen (a lovely sales lady in Kiehl’s Covent Garden told me that). I like the look of this brand and is meant to relieve dryness and smooth fine lines – i need me some of that! GLOSSYBOX are spoiling us as this is another FULL SIZE product at 50ml and retails at £17.50.
This next product is the only one in this box that doesn’t excite me. Its the Inika Organic Eyeliner in Purple Minx. From initial testing it’s a little bit scratchy and colour pay off isn’t great. But I will wear it and give it a go. I think more than anything its the colour that im not thrilled about. Purples are not my thing. It again is a FULL SIZE product and retails at £11.75.
The last product is the one i am most super excited to try. It is the Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum. I am using their Beauty Elixir already and am in love with it. SO getting this in my beauty box is great. I am a big fan of serums and as soon as i finish my Olay serum will start using this one. This is a 10ml sample and full size would be 30ml and reali for £29 so i think thats a generous sample size and there will be enough product to really give it a good trial and see how it works.
What did you receive in your April GLOSSYBOX? Are you pleased. I have heard that next months box is their Birthday box so that could be a fun box.
