Glossybox UK April - Sweet TreatsTuesday, April 15, 2014
It is April and time to open this month's Glossybox. I got it already on Monday, which is really early as I was expecting it to arrive at the end of the week.
In the box were 5 products. A few of the brands were already familiar to me.
TRESemme Instant Refresh Cleansing Dry Shampoo - £4.99 for 200ml. Mine is a travel size product (100ml). I have heard of dry shampoos but have never tried one. It absorbs oil for instantly revived hair with an added touch of volume. Before using, shake can vigorously before taking sections of hair spray from roots outwards.
MeMeMe Cosmetics Beat the blues - Pearl Pink - Full size product, £5.50 for 12ml. This is a multi-use product which can be applied straight onto the cheekbones for highlighting or can be mixed into foundation for a more subtle shimmer. It gives a natural glow and look.
Monu Spa Warming Ginger Massage & Body Oil - Full size £26 for 100ml. Mine is a sample size 30ml, which is pretty good for trying this product out. Monu Spa is British brand making a range of luxurious natural body care spa products for skin, hair and hands/feet. Again it is also a multi-use product. A small amount can be added to a warm bath or massaged into the skin before having bath or shower. It leaves skin silky smooth and thoroughly nourished and pampered. Its uplifting aromas refresh the senses and relax aching muscles. Calendula, Jojoba Seed Oil and Vitamins A and E deliver all you need to gently restore natural softness to skin.
SunSense UK Daily Face SPF 50+ - Full size £20.99 for 75g. Mine is a small sample size (10g). This is a daily face and neck product to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, not only in summer but all year round. It has an oil-free base, which is ideal for combination and oily skin types. One teaspoon 15 minutes before going outdoors should help for sun protection. This is an Australian brand, marketed by Ego Pharmaceuticals. It seems like Glossybox knows me very well, as I am having a holiday in Australia later this year. I will probably try this out before my trip and if my skin likes it, I can always buy a larger tube locally when I'm there.
And the last one - Emite Make Up Lip Brush - L312 - £17. It is from a Swedish make up brand which makes a range products as well as make up tools. I am very happy about this lip brush, as I was thinking of buying one but always kept putting it off.
Overall I am very satisfied with this month's Glossybox, I like all of the the products and for the first time I will use/try each one of them. I am on the monthly subscription and paying £10 + postage & packing and I can say it is definitely worth my money! It is also good that I can cancel any time I am getting tired or bored of the box. I am looking forward to May!
