When April's Glossy Box arrived at my door last month, I was intrigued to see what goodies we're waiting for me, (as of course I am every month!) I was pleasantly surprised to find a pale, kraft coloured box, and was puzzled by what this months theme could be! As I opened it however, it quickly became obvious by the all natural, bio degrabable, packaging, (and of course the name) that it was the "natural box" I was really excited by this and quickly unwrapped it to see what was inside!
Caudalie - Vinisource Thirst-Quenching Serum
I've been hearing a lot of good things about Caudalie products over the last couple of months, and as I have yet to try out any of their products, was really pleased to see that something from their range was included. The serum is SO light and silky and feels extremely moisturising on the skin. It's suitable for all skin types but it think it would really benefit anyone with really dry skin. I've been using it when my skin feels extra tight and dry and it works a treat! I also love the smell, it has a very subtle lemony, citrus scent.
INIKA Cosmetics - Certified Organic Lip Liner
I received the colour: 04 - Nude Delight, which is a very soft, pinky beige with a slight shimmer. I think it would work well with a lot of lip colours as it's a natural colour that could be blended nicely. I don't often wear lip liners myself, but the colour is so pretty and the pencil is really soft and easily glides on.
Monu Professional Skin Care - Rosewood Reviving Mist
Monu products have been featured quite a lot in beauty boxes over the last year, but this particular one has to be my favourite. I love refreshing facial mists, and this one is perfect. The natural essential oils used in this product include, Lemon, rosewood, clove and clary sage, rosewood being one of my favourites. We received a pretty large 100ml bottle and I think this is going to be perfect to refresh my skin in the summer (if it ever comes!) and I'll also be trying it out over my make up as a fixing spray.
Figs & Rouge - Lip Balm
Probably my favourite out of all the products (although there are some real winners this month). I have a slight obsession with lip and body balms and was very excited to add this one to my collection. I've never tried a Figs & Rouge balm, and before trying it, was under the impression that it would be quite hard and waxy, (that sort of Burts Bees consistency) but I was wrong! In the tin it has almost a rough texture to it, but it applies so smoothly and feels more like a lip gloss than a sticky balm. The scent of this one is peppermint & tea tree. I've said before that mint is not my favourite scent in lip products as is makes me feel like my lips are burning! This one however, smells quite strong but doesn't give you that tingly sensation on the lips.
Philip B - Styling Gel
This is probably the product that I've tried the least out of all of them. I don't really use gel type styling products in my hair, but if you're looking for something new to give you volume, texture and definition, then it could well be worth giving a go. I think I might hand this one over to the boyfriend to try, as it has a rather manly scent in my opinion too!
So that's my round up of April's box. And while i'm here i'd like to wish GlossyBox a very happy 1st birthday! i'll be celebrating with you all tomorrow evening!! Excited!! Congratulations on a fabulous first year of beautiful boxes, and interesting concepts and themes that continue to surprise and delight us all! Keep up the good work GB! x
