GlossyBox UK April 2013 Review!

OMG this month was so crazy I completely forgot to do a review on my last month's GlossyBox!! So I decided to end May with a belated April GlossyBox review, as they say better later than never... Firstly when this box arrived I loved it already, how pretty is this vintage floral print?! I'm definitely keeping this box to store make-up things! 

Inside there was a product description leaflet, also featuring an exclusive short interview with Pearl Lowe, talking about what inspired her to design this print and what make-up she likes to wear, which was quite cute I thought. What I also really like is that they say how big the full-sizes are so that you can quickly figure out how much you got to try. The GlossyBox don't have an identical set of products, so it's quite fun to see what other girls got in theirs! 

My April GlossyBox featured five products, TWO of which were full-size!!! Sleek Makeup Blush in Pixie Pink [£4.49]. I always wanted to try the Sleek Makeup blushes so I was very excited to get my first one from the GlossyBox! The blush is very pigmented and it's a super pretty flush of pink, great for the summer! And who wouldn't get a smile when discovering a bottle of Essie nailpolish in the shredded paper?! I got the shade Snap Happy [full-size] which alone is £7.99. It's a super bright and cheerful red, also fantastic for the summer. I happen to have this shade already so I'll probably give it to a friend. I find GlossyBox very generous with the products judging it from the April box, it's also my first one, but I think I will get a subscription because I have really enjoyed this box!

Next two products were a new introduction, NIP+FAB Dry Skin Fix Body Butter in Mango, it's super delicious smelling moisturiser, again the scent is very fitting for the summer and I already almost finished it! I got a generousness 50ml jar, the full-size is 200ml for £9.95. The next and only product I haven't tried yet, but will definitely give it a go, as I am actually looking for a high SPF face moisturiser for oily/combo skin, is the SunSense Daily Face SPF 50+. It has a super high SPF, invisible tint finish, oil free matte formula and can be used as a base. It sounds very promising! The sample size is 10ml and the full-size is 75g for £18.50. 

And finally I got a little 5ml sample of Yves Rocher France So Elixir Purple Eau de Parfum. The full-size 50ml is £44 and quite expensive for Yves Roche. I haven't touched Yves Roche products since the 90s, my mom used to order huge parcels of their stuff. So it's good to see they are still going strong. It's a concoction of floral and woody notes. An infusion of Tuberose, Vetiver and Patchouli the notes I usually love in a fragrance but this one is quite sweet, not sure it's my kind of scent but it's not bad at all.

One GlossyBox costs £10 [+P&P] but you can get a 3, 6, or 12 months subscription, which works out a lot cheaper! For more details click here -> 



  1. Some fab products in that box! Especially love the sleek blush! I got the sleek blush by 3 from and it is amazing! 3 fab pigmented colours in the one palette! X

    1. I think there is a Sleek blush palette in the shade lace, which I really want to try, perfect for summer! x
