First GlossyBox April 2012

So I just got back from a quick stop into uni to pick up a shed-load of books for my revision and dissertation proposal and I was greeted with the April GlossyBox, which is my first experience of the GlossyBox's so needless to say I was quite excited. This won't be a review of any of the products because obviously I haven't had time to try them, but once i've given them all a try i'll give a review. So first off this month's is described as the 'Natural Beauty' box.

Obviously not the usual pink colour which I was expecting, but I actually really like this packaging. It's like homemade paper, in an oatmeal colour which is nice for spring and fits very well with their 'natural' theme, plus its 100% biodegradable, which is great, however I will probably keep the box to store bits and bobs in as its a cute size for on my shelves!

These are the products;

Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum, which i'm very excited to try as i've heard good things about Caudalie but never tried any of their products.

Inika Organic Eyeliner in Number 11 Sapphire, this is a a deep metallic navy colour, i'm not a massive fan of moving out of the browns/blacks for eyeliner but its such a nice looking colour that i'm willing to give it a go!

Monu Enriched Body Cream, This sounds like an interesting product as it's got marine collagen, vitamin A, E and B5 in, so it should be pretty good. It's got quite a strong rose smell which might be offputting to some but I quite like it.

Figs and Rouge Lip Balm Peppermint and Tea Tree, Now this I have tried on my lips already as I love anything to do with peppermint for the lips and I like it a lot. It's a multi-purpose product always a bonus so you can use it on your body and face if you have a really patch of skin anywhere. It smells so good and its quite an oily consistancy which is good if your lips are super dry. So i'll definitely be using that a lot.

Philip B Drop Dead Straightening Balm, I feel that this might be the least useful product in this box for me, I've got dead straight hair naturally which is always quite limp so i'm not sure how i'll get on with this, but it could be good if my hair is being particularly frizzy or uncontrollable when the weather gets warmer so I'll give it a try and see how it goes!

All in all i'm really happy with my first box, and will definitely continue to subscribe as its a great way to try before committing to the full size price (also another good thing about GlossyBox they give you the full size prices on the product list, which is always good to know incase you want to purchase after trying the product). So I'll enjoy trying out these products and would definitely recommend GlossyBox, if you're interested you can subscribe at
