So Aprils GLOSSYBOX arrived and I was so excited to open it!
This month’s box was aimed at girls on the go, and the perfect way to make your life a little easier by getting ready a bit quicker. I know I am forever in a rush especially before work in the morning, so I am always on the hunt to find things to make my routine easier.
Here’s what I got in this months box:
Merci Handy Lollipop Hand Cleansing Gel
This little hand gel is so cute. It smelt AMAZING and felt really nice on my hands. I usually find some hand gels sticky but this had a great consistency. Perfect little addition to my handbag.
Elgon Cleansing Conditioner Co-wash
I loved this conditioner. Elgon’s Deliwash combines the cleansing action of a shampoo with the hydration of a conditioner so it is perfect to use in the morning when you’re in a rush.
I have really dry hair, mainly because of years of bleaching and neglect, but this seemed to make my hair really soft and shiny, so I will definitely be purchasing more.
Model CO Contour Stick
I was excited to try this because great cheekbones are something I aspire to, so I need a lot of contouring to semi-achieve this.
I was a bit worried because I thought it looked quite wet, but this actually blended really well (and quickly) and sat on my face nicely.
I have seen others use this as a lipstick and eyeshadow – so I may have to give this a try too.
I really enjoyed trying this mascara because it wasn’t clumpy and it lengthened my eyelashes. Some mascaras I find can take for ever to dry and before you know it you’ve wiped mascara everywhere on your face, but I definitely didn’t have this problem. Because it dried at a good speed, it meant it was really easy to layer up and build a thicker lash.
Plus as it is a sample I think it is the perfect handbag size.
Sport FX Brow Pencil in Blonde
This is a water resistant brow pencil, which is perfect for someone like me who needs to draw their brows on every day and lives in fear of them smudging. The pencil is at an angle making it easy to apply and the retractable twist means you don’t need to carry a sharpener.
I was sent the blonde pencil, which I have to say wasn’t for me because I usually go for a much darker colour, but I did put this on try and it is a lovely colour for someone who prefers a lighter brown. After applying it I put it to the test when I went to the gym for a super sweaty session and it didn’t smudge, so it does what it says which is always good.
I probably wouldn’t buy this product though because I am in love with Benefit Ka Brow for everyday use, and my Ofra Waterproof Gel (see review here) for when I need it.
Overall thoughts on April’s Glossybox?
I enjoyed all the products, but in the spirit of being honest I was more impressed with last month’s box. I did still enjoy it though!
