April GlossyBox

Hi Everyone,

My April Glossybox came today, after many days of me going on about "is it here yet!", it was definitely worth the wait, as I absolutely love it even before I opened the box!

This months box was designed by Pearl Lowe, Daisy Lowe's Mum, It's a lovely peach floral box, this is probably my favourite glossy box design so far, even the leaflet and the sticker included the print!

I must admit I could of cried when I opened this box, It has to be one of my most favourite ones yet, Glossybox have done a brilliant job with this one.

1) Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy (£14 for 100g) I've never heard of Crabtree & Evelyn, Although my mum seemed excited by it. It's a handy little hand cream to chuck In your bag, I tried it earlier and it was good and smells very floral.

2) Nip + Fab Dry Skin Fix Body Butter in Pistachio (£9.95 for 200ml) I was really excited when I saw this, I've heard such good things about this but I've never tried it, The only downside I can't stand nuts, So pistachio didn't really appeal to me, I had a quick sniff and I guess the smell could be bearable, but I'm looking forward to trying this.

3) Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Hex (£13 for 1g) This product could of made me cry, I love Illamasqua! I have 3 other Medium Pencils and they're all so soft and versatile, This is a really nice nude sort of colour, It could be good on the water line, I'm not too sure about a nude lip liner too.

4) Yves Rocher France So Elixir Purple Eau De Parfum (£44 for 50ml) I've had Yves Rocher products before from glossy box, I like the little bottle, But I'm not sure I'm really a fan of the scent, It might grow on me though.

5) Essie Nail Lacquer in Bikini So Teeny (£7.99 for 13.5ml) Another product That could of made me cry, I've got it on my nails just now and I surprisingly love the colour. The brush is so thick, as I've only had old Essie polishes before, I think this could be a new favourite!

Last Months Favourites:

I've been loving Juicy Couture La La Fragrance over the past month, I love the floral and slight citrus scent to it, Its been really fresh and great for spring. Next Ive Been loving Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, Its such a cult product I've wanted to try for ages, I burnt my lip a few days ago and this has been such a saviour, Its a brilliant multitasking product, I'm tempted to go and buy the full size of both of these products especially the Eight Hour Cream.

This has to be my Favourite ever Glossybox I've received, I'll definitely get good use out of it.

How did you love Glossybox this month?
