Beauty Subscription Box: Glossybox April 2016

Now I know what you're probably thinking... My last post was a Glossybox post as well. I know, I know and usually I would never do this - but it arrived through at my doorstep the other day - and I had to tell you about it right away. This is a bloody good box and you need to get your hands on it. 

I'm talking the April Glossybox* and crikey, just look at it. The brands are incredible - and the products, they're ALL something that I'd use. 

First up, is the Next Make Me Beautiful Lip Chubby. I've been dying to try something from the Next beauty range since not being able to make the launch a while ago and so I have to admit I gave a little squeal when I spied this in the box. This is a lip crayon and as usual, it makes for such easy application. The shade is a gorgeous cherry red with pink undertones and it is just a perfect everyday bold lip. I love a bold red - and this creamy lipstick will make a great addition to my collection. 

The Leighton Denny Expert Nails Miracle Mist has to be the product that I'm the most excited to try. I'm terrible at painting my nails - I just can never wait for them to dry - and although I've not yet tried this yet (though it's gone straight onto my dressing table for the next time I paint my nails). Glossybox says this miracle spray makes your nails touch dry in seconds - and I can't tell you how much I need it in my life. Watch this space... 

I'm on such a brow hype at the moment. I've gone from what was a very minimal collection - to something that's on the verge of getting out of hand. I have to try them all right out though? Justification at its best. The Studio 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner is the latest to be added to my collection from this months Glossybox and I'm blooming excited about it. I love Studio 10 - they're brushes are great - so to find out that they actually do makeup too, well I was very excited. On first impressions, the double ended brow liner is going to be a goodn'. One thing that always gets me is when the colour of a brow product is too warm toned - I just don't want to come out looking like my brows are a bit orange - and this definitely doesn't do that. The shade is super ashy which I love and the product itself is blendable but make sure to keep it sharpened for a defined finish. On the other end there's a brightening matte highlighter which makes a nice change from all of the shimmery ones out there. 

I'm always looking out for whitening toothpastes and so although I haven't heard of swiss smile before, the product definitely makes up for it. The swiss smile Whitening Toothpaste is going to be added into my daily teeth brushing routine (if that's what you call it?) and I can't wait. I always judge toothpaste on it's packaging and this looks like it'll do something so fingers crossed it does... 

Last but not least is The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil. Now I have to admit I'm not much of a facial oil kind of gal, but I've heard so much about the Oils of Life range from The Body Shop so I just have to give it a go. This sample size is super adorable - and perfect for travelling. 

So thats it and I can't blooming believe it. 4 full size products and an adorable mini. Damn Glossybox, you've done good this month. Hats off to the brands team indeed...

  1. I remember when I was subbed to Glossybox and I posted about it every month, the excitement was too much! I'm no longer subbed as it seemed just a waste, but this box sounds pretty good! Lovely post xx

  2. I got a few different products compared to you, and I was quite disappointed with this box! Loved all the other boxes I have had and this one was the first I was disappointed in. x
