Glossybox April (spoiler alert!)

April 27, 2012
This month’s (April’s) GlossyBox has an eco-friendly theme, even the box is recycled and comes in a lovely beige colour. I’m building quite a collection of rainbow coloured boxes…with the normal pink, red for Christmas, white for the Harrods box, pink for February…
So anyway, here’s a little look at the goodies that came in my Glossybox this month!
The make-up item is this eyeliner from Inika cosmetics, in a gorgeous deep purple shade – I first tried Inika when I received a liner with a Marie Claire magazine a while ago. This one is just as lovely, I like how the purple shade is deep and subtle – makes it really wearable.
Then there were four other lovely products – a Burt’s Bees Body Lotion, a Peppermint and Tea Tree balm (I love Peppermint, so this is a winner for me), a Monu Collagen Cream and a Caudalie Vinosource Serum. I’m a huge fan of the Caudalie range – especially the Vinosource products. I have tried this serum before so very happy to see this in there – it’s fantastic for dry/dehydrated skin – especially when used lightly around the eye area.
I’m very happy with the bits I got in the box this month – I don’t normally blog about just the contents, but as a couple of the brands were products I’ve tried in the past I felt I can vouch for their quality! I’m liking how Glossybox are doing different themes for the boxes, and how each one has a nice range of face/body/make-up products. 
I guess my only comment on this months box would be that it might have been nice to switch one of the face or body products for a hair one? No big deal at all, but would have given it a real all-rounder feel to the box!
Still, at the end of the day – I just love the surprise factor of opening the box to see what they’ve included each time!

    I am so excited to get mine now! A couple of other bloggers got different products as opposed to the Burt’s Bee’s lotion – they instead recieved a gel/ straightening balm which was the hair product that you desired! Nevertheless i think the box you got was great, and i will be a very happy camper if mine turns out to be the same as yours :)

    Love, Ana

    I was a Carmine Box junkie and was so gutted when they sold over the Glossybox. I have decided to let a couple months go by before signing up to see if they really do a good takeover. So far this looks great!

    It’s nice to see Glossybox have tried to keep their customers guessing by introducing different themes as well as brands

    Ahh I’m so tempted to sign up to glossybox! I used to be so envious of all the American beauty gurus I watch when they opened there “birchboxes”. So i’m so glad there’s a UK version. Would you say they were worth the money? And do you find you actually use the products you recieve? :) x
