GlossyBox April 2012

Yay GlossyBox April finally arrived, I've waited a long time for this (too long if you ask me). But after all the waiting and complaining, I was very pleased at what they put in my box. I had a peek at some other peoples posts on this months box and I think I got some of the better products offered. I'm Also loving the organic/natural theme with the products this month, the box was beautiful, gorgeous colours.

I'm going to start with my favourite because I think it's just fabulous. It's the full size "Figs & Rose lip balm" which smells amazing. I was afraid to try it because it's so great to look at, amazing packaging design. But about the product, what I thought was great about this balm was how it's got texture to it, it's almost slushy which makes me believe that there is actually some natural product in there rather than the conventional gelatine like lip balms. 

The next product which I also adore, is the "Ayuuri- Natural Body Wash " which was a very large sample, almost (if not) full size. I havent had the chance to use it yet but it smells great. You think by looking at it, that it's going to have a fruity/tropical smell, but it actually is a nice combination of fruit and spice, really different.

The next is this "Inika - Organic Eyeliner" which is also a very large sample. I like how it goes on quite matted, and the colour 'graphite' looks great too, it's an everyday sort of eyeliner, not too intense but not too bright and jazzy either. It's also lasts long on the skin so no need to re apply as much as other liners.

This "Caudalie - Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum" I was excited to try, being a new product on the market. I haven't had a chance to use it properly, the instructions suggest to use it before applying moisturiser in the morning. I rubbed some on my face to try, and it dries in almost instantly which is handy, especially if you're in a rush. The sample was small, but still good to try.

And lastly the product I was least excited about was the "Kai - Perfume oil". it does smell really nice, and im intrigued to use it some time I have a long day to see how long the smell lasts. The one thing I dislike about it is how it's oil based, I know it's not going on my face, but i'm just not a fan of any oil based product for the face OR body. Being oil based however might be the key to a long lasting fragrance.

Despite the wait, i was pleased with the contents of Aprils box. I thought maybe the glossy box team would have thrown in a wee extra something for making us wait two weeks but sure, still pleased with the products.
