April 2013 Glossybox!

Hello there!

Very big apologies for the lack of blog posts lately. Just been busy with the usual work. And I have been trying to lay back on my spending. So, I couldn’t buy some new make up and beauty stuff. But I did get paid this week! Pay day is so awesome, makes all your hard work worth it.

Todays post will be about April’s edition of Glossybox! And it is yet another themed one! YAY! 
I love the themed boxes because the box is different and looks so cute! I tend to throw away the boxes that we get. But I do not throw away the themed ones because they are different! And it’s also good for storage!

This month’s box was designed and inspired by Pearl Lowe – a lover of all things vintage! The floral print was inspired by her love of the English countryside. Inside the leaflet, there is a brief interview with her. The design is very nice, when I saw the box, I just said “awww wow”,  and it also fits in with the Spring time of year! 🙂

Anyways, on to the products!

Daily Face SPF (10g)

Full Price: 75g for £18.50

This is a sunscreen cream for the face and neck with a tint. Helps to protect against sunburn. sun damage and premature aging from sun exposure. The weather is not hot enough yet to use this product, but it will come in handy for the, hopefully, hot summer time coming up! 🙂

Yves Rocher France
So Elixir Purple Yves Rocher Eau de Parfum (5ml)

Full Size: 50ml for £44

This is the second frangrance by Yves Rocher that I have tried out. These days I have started to get more familiar with this brand and they always seem to have good deals on their site! This fragrance has a very floral scent to it. I usually go for sweet smelling scents, so I would not go reaching for this one. But it is quiet a fresh smelling, flowery scent. 

Nip + Fab
Dry Skin Fix Body Butter in Coconut Latte (50ml)

Full Size: 200ml for £9.95

I am starting to accumulate a never ending supply of body butters and lotions. All because I get so lazy when it comes to things like that! lol.

Shade: Nice is Nice
Nail Lacquer (13.5ml)

Full Size: 13.5ml for £7.99 (I received a full sized sample)

Now this is the product that I got most excited about when I saw it. I have been wanting to try out an Essie nail polish for a long time now. Now I finally own one, AND, to make it better, I got it in one of my favourite colours. As lilac is part of the purple family. So this was really nice to get! Perfect, definitely like it already. 

Last but not least…

Model Co
Cheek + Lip Tint in Rosy Red

I don’t really like the idea of putting this kind of thing on the cheeks, so I would probably use this more on my lips than my cheeks. Never heard of this brand. The packaging looks a bit cheap because of the bright silver and plastic looking material. However, we should never judge a book by it’s cover! And will see how this is! I just tried it now and the texture is very liquidy! Soaks in quickly into the lips.


There we go. This month’s box of goodies. I think I got a good handful of things 🙂
Hope you enjoyed reading. What did you get in your box? Or any other beauty boxes that you are subscribed to…
