Glossybox – April 2014

It’s been a long time since I received a Glossybox. I had a 6 month subscription last year but cancelled as I wasn’t really enjoying the products. I’m only one box away for earning enough glossydots for a free box, so when I was e-mailed a code for £4 off, I decided to order the April Glossybox and see if I can find some new loves.

It was the same, standard box, wrapped up nicely. There’s a magazine now, which is new to me. It’s only around 12 pages but has a selection of cool interviews and tips.

I opened the box to find the products inside, this was a little anti-climatical as the products hardly filled the box as they were small so the box seemed too big for the items.

The Products.

glossybox, tresemme dry shampoo

TRESemme Instant Refresh Cleansing Dry Shampoo. Fullsize: £4.99 for 200ml.

I started using dry shampoo a few months ago after suffering with scalp problems that made me need to reduce how often I wash my hair. I’ve not tried this one yet but I’m excited to give it a go. It smells like hairspray, which is something I’ve not come across in a dry shampoo before!

glossybox, emite makeup lip brush
Emite Makeup Lip Brush – £17

This product is a little wasted on me, to be honest. I rarely wear lip products, if I did, I would not apply them with a lip brush! It does seem like really good quality though. 
glossybox, mememe beat the blues, highlighter

MeMeMe Cosmetics Beat the Blues – Pearl Pink – £5.50 for 12ml

I’m the idiot who thought this was nail varnish. Wheeeeeee. This is actually a multi-use highlighter. The full sized product was sent, which is always fun. I’m much happier now I’ve discovered it’s a highlighter and would love to give this a try and do a separate review of it! The swatchy swatch left a lovely shimmer on my hand.
glossybox, daily face
SunSense UK Daily Face SPF 50+

This is coming to Florida with me, for sure. It’s an oil-free cream that’s lightly tinted, perfect for a summer glow with a high SPF. I’ll let you know how I get on with it when I’ve tried it!
glossybox, monu spa warming ginger
Monu Spa Warming Ginger Massage & Body Oil – £25 for 100ml

This smells like something I want to put in my mouth. Doom. Conflicted, much? What will happen if I swallow it? Just like, a little bit? I was a bit meh about this until I smelt it. Okay okay, I admit it – I gave it a little lick. Just a tiny one. I wouldn’t really recommend it. You know when you make a fruity tea and it smells so delicious, but tastes like wank? It tastes like wank. It’s recommended to put in a bath or use in the shower. Also can be warmed in the hands and massaged into the skin. No more licking. 
So there you have it. The April Glossybox. I’m actually pretty happy with it now I’ve gone through the products. I’m excited to try each product apart from the lip brush, which is a shame because that’s the most expensive. I just don’t do lips, okay? 

What would you like to try the most?
