Glossybox April 2013 - Unboxing + Mini review!!

Glossybox April 2013 - Spring Fever
Designed by Pearl Lowe

First of all, before we even get started, how amazing is the design on this box?!
absolutely fell in love with it as soon as I opened the package and since I usually store my makeup in Glossyboxes, I cant wait to have this displayed on my vanity.

When you open the box, you're greeted with the familiar ribbon and sticker, this time with a floral print behind the logo and a pale, almost white ribbon, a nice touch to match in with the box design and I felt that the attention to detail this month was excellent.

As you can see, this months box was amazing, I love the range of products, from well known brands like Essie, to brands that I had heard of but never tried such as Yves Rocher and of course, Nip+Fab. I felt that last months box only really contained one product that I hadn't already used and since Glossybox is all about trying new products, I would have liked to have tried a few new things. This months box really suited me in that way. 

Yves Rocher Nutrive Vegetal 24hr Comfort nourishing cream - Sample Size
Full Size - £13.50
This was the first thing I pulled out and let me tell you, I couldn't have been more excited to see this product! I have been struggling to hydrate two really annoying dry patches under my eyes for weeks, my foundation is clogging around them and they're actually quite sore. Nothing has worked so far. I've tried Estee Lauder, Garnier Intensive even just E45, nothing has worked. I've only used this a couple of times so I can't really give a full review yet but I have high hopes for this and will probably be writing a full review in a couple of weeks so watch this space!

Essie Nail Laquer - Geranium - Full Size
I'm not usually a fan of Nail Polishes in Glossybox but I've been getting more into doing my nails recently so I was quite happy with this. I love Essie polishes, the forumla isn't the best I have come across but for £7.99, you can't really go wrong, and a beautiful shade for summer, the colour isn't great in the photo but its a gorgeous bright red with a hint of coral.

Richard Ward Couture hair optimiser style reviver - Sample Size
Full Size - £19.00
I have to admit, it took me a while to figure out what this was, from what I can gather from the leaflet it's a wheat and oil styling spray that increases shine, counteracts frizz and boosts volume. Sounds amazing on the tin but we will have to see. Going to save this for the warmer weather (if we get any that is!) to see if it can save my hair from the summer frizziness. always looking for ways to boost volume so another great product. Looking forward to trying this.

Nip+Fab Dry skin body butter - Mango Smoothie - Sample Size
Full Size - £9.95
Much like every product in the box, this jumped out at me, partly because I love mango scents and partly because I loved the bright packaging. Let me tell you, it didn't disappoint. The smell is absolutely amazing! I've used it twice so far and it smells even better when you apply it. It left my skin feeling so soft and the scent stayed on my skin for ages! Not great if you don't like strong scents, or mango's but i loved it so much that I'm ordering the Full Size. Probably my favourite product.

Balance Me radiance face mask - Sample Size
Full Size - £18
This is probably my least favourite product in the box. Don't get me wrong, I love balance me, I just wouldn't ever spend £18 on a face mask. I love the Montagne Jeunesse face masks, great value, great range and so I don't really see myself paying that much for something when I'm happy with what I'm using. Plus, I received a face mask last month in my Glossybox and I haven't used that yet. I use a face mask once a week and have a large supply of my current favourites. I am determined to give this a go as well as last months however, so when I remember to use them, I will post a review. 


Overall, I really loved this months box. It included a wide range of products, all of which I am excited to try out and I felt that the products really suited the Spring Fever theme. Huge thumbs up for the Pearl Lowe designed box too!
