PRODUCT REVIEW - APRIL GLOSSYBOX

I'm sorry if you've already seen this box a million times,
but i like to give it a couple of weeks of trying the products before giving a full review.


The April Glossybox arrived through my letter box a few weeks ago now complete with natural products and packaging. I honestly didn't expect to like this box much, i had read some spoilers and i wasn't wowed but i must admit this box has to be my ultimate favourite from Glossybox (I've had at least 10) but i simply love it.



£10.00 (plus p+p)*


BURTS BEES BODY LOTION 70G
I've recently got in to Burts Bees products, the price kind of puts me off though! But I've been working my way through the lip balms for a while now so i was really excited to see a product i hadn't used before. The milk & honey body lotion is a very nourishing product which leaves the skin feeling/looking silky smooth. The main thing i like is the thick consistency which for me makes it easier to rub in and last longer.

MONU COLLAGEN CREAM 50ML
This hand cream is for dry,very dry or dehydrated skin which doesn't really apply to me. I can totally see how it would be perfect for those skin types though as it's a very rich cream, a little too rich for me. I'm not overly keen on the scent either, i think it might be the primrose that i don't like, for me it just seems a but too much. I know my Mum will love this product so I'll give it to her and it won't get wasted.

FIGS & ROUGH LIP, FACE & BODY BALM 8ML
I think this is my favourite product from this box, I'm an absolute sucker for cute packaging and the fact it's a lip balm is even better. I have all kind of lip products in every single bag i own and I've put this little number in my most used bag. The sweet scent reminds me very faintly of love heart sweets and gives your lips a subtle shine. I would only use this product on my lips as it is quite greasy.

INIKA - ORGANIC EYE LINER 1.2G
You can't go wrong with a black eye liner, a must have item in every make up collection and 99% of make up lines out there do their own version. So when i saw this had the hefty price tag of £11.75 i was a little shocked! I can't help but feel the price is because it's 'organic' which doesn't really matter to me. It's a fab eye liner, very long lasting and deep in colour. But i think I'll stick with my £1.99 one from Miss Sporty when I've used this one up.

CLAUDALIE QUENCHING SERUM 10ML
After getting completely hooked on the Claudalie Beauty Elixir (review here) i was really happy to see another item from them. Again this is another product aimed for dehydrated skin which i don't have. But it's a lovely product and I've been applying it before my make up in the morning. It's a very liquidated product, but a little goes a long way and it smells divine.


Like i said before this box is my favourite, to be able to use 4 products out of 5 is pretty good going and I'm really happy with the box i got. I think it's a little bit mixed with the whole natural theme, some products i get why they're in there and others not so much. I like the colour scheme of the box and it does scream natural, but i can't help but feel maybe the crinkle paper shouldn't have been there? But then again is their~ thing.

Do you receive a monthly Glossybox? What do you think of the April edition?

  7. I got gifted a few months worth of Glossy boxes from my best friends for my 21st so I am looking forward to the May one. I wasn't too impressed with Aprils but it's good that you found a positive in almost all of them.
    Nice review.
