Glossybox | April

The first thing that struck me about this month's Glossybox was the design. I know that it's what's inside that matters but a pretty design every once in a while doesn't go a miss! This month's box is a collaboration between Glossybox and Pearl Lowe and is designed to feature Spring appropriate products (aptly named 'Spring Fever'). Whilst the weather outside hardly mirrors this, it's nice to welcome in the new season in the beauty department. This month sees a nice mix of products including hair, face, body and nails. I suppose you could see it as a Spring makeover/pamper which is something I definitely need after what seems like the longest Winter ever. Cold temperatures, dark nights and wet and windy weather (with the occasional snow thrown in) have taken their toll on my skin so I'm looking forward to trying this month's products to hopefully solve a few of my beauty problems!

Glossybox April*

Richard Ward Couture Hair
Optimiser Style Reviver
Designed to create volume and shine whilst decreasing frizz, it seems like an all-rounder product. I have quite fine hair so volume is always something I'm after (unless I go for a sleek straight look) so I'll be interested to see how much hold this product has.

Yves Rocher France
Nutrive Vegetal - 24H Comfort Nourishing Cream
This nourishing cream has an array of ingredients from Shea Butter to Ash Tree Sap extract and more as well as being free of parabens and colouring. As I have sensitive skin, this sounds like a product up my street and just in time as my skin is in need of some nourishment after the cold weather.

Nip + Fab
Dry Skin Fix Body Butter in Mango Smoothie
I'm a big fan of body butters, not only for their effects but for their scents too. I'm pleased to have received this particular scent as it's very Spring/Summer appropriate so am looking forward to seeing how it stands up against my current body butters.

Nail Lacquer in 'Sugar Daddy'
Essie has been such a popular nail product over this past year and I have to admit that I've been drawn into their gorgeous range of colours and sleek packaging. I'm pleased to have received a neutral pink shade in my box as I'm not big on bright colours on my nails as they require a lot more maintenance than I'm quite frankly willing to put in. When it comes to quality, I've not been completely won over by the long lasting aspect of the polish so I'm hoping this will convince me otherwise.

Balance Me
Radiance Face Mask
I love a face mask so this product will definitely become a 'go-to product' for me this month. With 98% natural origins and being a triple action product, I have high hopes for this overhauling my tired skin!


  1. Hmmmm....they sound like great products but I hope to see pictures of these products and more reviews.

  2. I like reading through a post that will make people think.

  3. Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
