The April Glossybox arrived at my home Friday morning! The Glossybox PR people were so nice and sent me one for free. If you want to order it, you can do that throught their website, and if you use their promotion code Glossy40, you get the first box for 40% off.
This month the theme of th box was mother’s day! The products were designed to suit both mothers and daughters, which I find a cute idea.
The most useless thing for me was the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. I’m not old enough to use that, and neither is my mum (aka she doesn’t have any dark spots yet!).
The white tea face lotion from rau (Rau Cosmetics White Tea Cream) looks really pretty – I’m a packaging freak, and I love the design. Also, I’m a fan of those bottles with a pump – although there is always some lotion left in them, but I like the easy portioning. Nevertheless, I use only one face lotion, because I have super sensitive skin and everytime I try to change, I get spots. So I guess you can understand that I don’t like to change
Joico K-Pak RevitaLuxe is a hair treatment. I have never heard of the brand Joico before, but I have curls and my hair gets dry really fast, so I’m always searching for new hair products. I have tried it already, and I can tell you that it makes my hair nice and soft, and a bit more shiny. I guess I’ll try it a couple more times and then decide if I will buy a full size bottle.
Maria Galland Lipgloss in Fraise – I have the feeling that lipglosses are somewhat inflationary this spring/summer. Correct me if I’m wrong I must admit though, I like the colour and the texture. The lipgloss isn’t sticky (yes, I’m looking at you, MAC!), which is a huge plus, and the colour is fresh, but not overwhelming (btw, the colour in the picture is pretty accurate!. Only downside is the packaging – it comes in a small pot, and you can’t really use your finger to apply it, so one has to have a lip brush to guarantee proper application (that is , unless you like a joker-esque look).
Last but not least, every box had an essie nail polish (full size), which was somehow not that surprising, considerin essie just launched counters all over Austria – they are now available at Müller and BIPA. The essie polishes retail for ~10 Euros, so if you were planning on buying one, you can just as well order the Glossybox (with the 40% off code, that is).
I received “Turquoise and Caicos“, which is a nice pastel turquoise. I needed 3 coats for it to be opaque, and I wasn’t all to smitten with the consistency. I know a lot of people love the essie polishes, but I’m not the greatest fan. above: daylight. Below: artificial light, no flashBelow: flash
Did you order the Glossybox this month? What do you think of the products?
Thank you to the Glossybox team for sending me a box for free.
