Glossy Box: April's Edition The Natural Box

27 Apr 2012







So this month has a theme which was quite a surprise actually as they normally announce when this happens. To celebrate Earth day Glossy Box has gone for a Eco friendy theme. I really love this idea and is probably my favourite so far but I do think they could've done it a little better. i.e the last picture above is the box that the hand cream came in - It's cute and yes it can be recycled but there really was no need to send the extra cardboard!

Anyway the products..

Caudalie - Vinosource Serum (10ml) £26.10 for 30ml
I love Caudalie and the Vinosource range. The smell is just delicious and they don't lie when it comes down to the thirst quenching! I actually had a teeny sample that I opened yesterday - I am so into serums right now and this feels lovely on the skin. Look forward to trying it a bit more. 

Inika Cosmetics - Lipliner (full size)  £10
Inika are a cruelty free cosmetics company. The lipliner I received was in Safari which is a medium warm brown colour. It's quite creamy but not really a colour I would use. Shame as it looks like a good liner.

Ayuuri - Natural Body Wash (full size 200ml) £4.95
Ahh this just smells lovely, a very light scent but I don't really like anything too overpowering. But of course this has SLS in so I shan't be using it sadly. 

Figs & Rouge - Lip Balm (full size 8ml) £3
I received this lip balm in Sweet Geranuim from I think Feel Unique and I really did not like the 'flavour' but for some reason I preserved and turns out I bloody love it! One of my favourite lip balm's I have ever used and am down to about a 3rd left so to receive a different flavour in Vanilla and Cherry just in time is excellent! Love it and get it in your life people!

Yes! Nurse - Hand Cream (full size 50ml) £5.49
Yes! Nurse hand cream has Manuka Honey +15 which I know is really great for all sorts of things, your skin, when you are ill etc. I have a pot sitting in my cupboard just waiting to be used but I have never known how to actually use it - mental note to find out! Anyway the cream has a light and pleasant smell. It's quite thin but you don't need too much at all as it sinks in well and leaves your hands moisturised without any residue or stickiness. I have linked to the website where you can actually have a monthly subscription at £4.99 or just buy individually. 

Overall I love the products and they will get used except the body wash. I did have another box with a few different products but this was the better of the two. 

Did you get Glossy Box this month? What products did you get?


P.s Hello non blurry pictures! Finally figured out what was going wrong - bit of a relief I must say..
