glossybox april 2012

Caudalie Vinosourse SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum, Inika Cosmetics lip liner, Anyuuri body
wash, Figs & Rouge lip balm & Yes! Nurse Protect Your Lovely Hands via GlossyBox*

This seems to be the most blogged about GlossyBox for a while, and for good reason. It's one of those boxes that doesn't really seem that exciting upon opening, but everything will come in handy and get used. So it's good value for money really which is better than just an initial ooh and aah, which is a good thing in my opinion. The April box is the "natural box", I love the themed boxes, I just think it makes getting them a bit more exciting!

I was expecting to hate the body wash as I don't like rose scented things, but this smells lovely! I'm looking forward to using it when I've got through the millions of bottles in my bathroom at the moment. The Caudalie serum is something I welcomed with open arms, I love the products I've tried by the brand so far and anything to help with dryness is a huge plus for me right now. The Yes! Nurse hand cream is actually really nice, it smells amazing (can't quite put my finger on the scent, but it's cakey) and sinks in to the skin very well. I love the (unnecessary) packaging it came in too! I haven't used the lip liner yet but I'm glad I got the nude colour as it can go underneath anything, and I have so many lip balms already that I'm probably going to save this as an extra little present for someone.

Overall I'm really pleased with this box, everything is going to get used which can't really be said for boxes I've had in the past. Always a good thing! What do you think of the April box?

  1. I was quite happy with my box, it was the same as yours apart from the hand cream and coconut instead of rose bodywash. Although there were a few things others got that I was a bit jealous of! x

  2. I loved my april box, it's only my second one but i'm so glad i signed up!


  3. It was my first box but I loved it, was really impressed with the products! x

  4. That hand cream looks so cute!

  5. I got the same as this bar the hand cream and got coconut instead of rose which I am secretly pleased about. I was actually rather pleased with this months box, I think a lot of people are. I am being more open minded with Glossy Box from now on and actually recognising the concept and why I signed up. They are never going to please everyone with the products etc but I am loving trying different products that I wouldn't of tried otherwise.

  7. This looks like a great mix of products. Looking forward to hearing more about them! xx


  8. The special themed boxes are always so pretty.
    I love rose scented things so that body wash is definitely right up my alley. I'm a sucker for lip balms too, so the one with this box is one that I'd love to try.
    Great picks! :)


  9. I like the products! It would be great if you make a more detailed post :)



  10. I love the natural theme especially the organic lip balm

  11. I loved the natural theme too, wish I'd got the hand cream though!


  12. Oh! My box was actually quite different! I got a refreshing and toning mist and some hair gel which I probably won't use, but will come in handy when going on holiday with my guy friends.

  13. I got the same as you apart from the hand cream and I was also pleased with mine :) x

  14. I've read a review on the nurses hand cream, it sounds really good! I sometimes get eczema on my hands if i'm not careful so I love thick hand creams. Really tempted to subscribe to this!

    Love your blog - just followed!


  15. I have heard that the nurses hand cream is meant to be really good.

    Love your blog by the way! Couldn't resist following you.

    I look forward to your future posts!

    All the best,


  16. Sigh.... GlossyBoxes just look so much prettier than all of the other boxes. Love the items you recieved!

  17. Ooh it looks lovely hope I get the same one!

  18. Don't you love it when you get big bottles! Practically makes my week.

  19. Everything in it looks lovely but it's worth noting that there is an awful lot of unessential packaging (recycled or not) for an 'eco' box.

  20. lip pencil is super pigmented love it!

  21. Wow I'm doing the Australian version and Love it!

    You guys get interesting goodies, I mostly get cleansers and toners and some proactive (which I can't complain about!) wish there was more hand creams as I don't have any - nifty packaging too!!


  22. I've just ordered my first box off the back of this post! So behind the times I'd never heard of it before! Can't wait for my first one to arrive!!
