April Glossybox

First of all, I absolutely love the box this month! It is an exclusive one, designed by Pearl Lowe, and it’s gorgeous! I'm trying to think what I can store in it so that I can keep it- it’s way too pretty to throw away! Here is what I got in the this month's Glossybox:

Essie nail polish

Model Co Lip and Cheek Tint

Sun Sense SPF 50 Sun Cream

Yves Rocher 'So Elixir' Perfume

Nip and Fab Body Butter

Overall, I love the Essie nail varnish, and the rest I think is ok/ good, but in all honestly, I don’t think I would have bought any of them. The suncream I like- it is specifically for your face and is supposed to be mattifying, so this will be really good for the summer. I’ve never heard of Model Co before, but will be interested in comparing this tint to the Benefit Posie Tint which I really like- a cheaper alternative would be a great find if it’s as good! The perfume is nice but quite heavy so it will be good for taking away with me for an evening do. Finally, the body butter will definitely get used and I will be comparing it to my favoured Body Shop ones, having not tried the Nip and Fab ones before.

However, I'm beginning to think that maybe it would be better for my purse if I didn’t keep my subscription for Glossybox, as, in reality, I would just have paid £8 for the nail varnish and not bought the rest. Yet, I do look forward to getting it every month as it’s a lovely surprise. Hmm... as I'm in two minds about continuing, I will see what next month’s box has to offer and then take it from there.

Does anyone else subscribe to Glossybox? What do you think about it? What items did you get in your box this month?

Price: £13 a month (including p+p) for the subscription


  1. I got this month's because it looked like such a good box, but then I cancelled again! The Essie polish looks like a lovely shade :)

    Jesss xo

    1. Haha, really?! That's a good idea, then you'll just get the boxes you want rather than paying every month. The Essie nail polish is really nice, I look forward to trying it :) xx

  2. It looks like a really good box this month! I've never signed up to one as I find them a bit hit and miss but this one looks great!



    1. Yes it is quite a good box, it's definitely made it a harder decision whether to cancel or not! Thanks for commenting :) xx

  3. i'd love to try that body butter, it sounds like it would smell really nice!

    1. I know, I haven't opened it yet as I'm trying to be good and use up my body shop one first! As soon as I've tried it I will review it though :D x x x
