April Glossybox


I received the final Glossybox ever today! I was really disappointed to hear that Glossybox was joining forces with Lust Have It, as I've always been a fan of Glossybox. Sure, they don't always hit the mark, but that's the point of these boxes! You're not going to like everything you get. But their customer service was fantastic, at least in my experience when I had a declined payment for no reason whatsoever, and I feel their presentation is just amazing. Either way, I have no choice!


This month's Glossybox was supposed to be "natural" with the passing of Earth hour. I was pretty happy with the theme, as I was really pleased with all I received!



Redwin "Organics Moisturiser" in Orange and Bergamot
I LOVE Redwin, and I'm a fanatic with their sorbolene! (Just ask my boyfriend, I carry the bottle around the house with me!) So I was very pleased to receive something from one of my favourite brands! I adore the smell, it's very fruity and natural. I will be using this all the time! This was by far my favourite!




Integrity Protecting Moisturiser
The smell of this was just glorious, and I used a tiny bit on my fingers because I just couldn't help myself! I love the feeling of it, so I was really pleased to get this item! I love moisturisers, they're my favourite thing in the beauty world and there is no way I would survive without them, so I loved this!




Blush Amour Nail Polish
I'm happy I got the nail polish! After reading the list of things I could have got, I sighed in relief that they didn't stick me with the hand cream. I know I love cream, but a bit of variety is appreciated! I cant' wait to use this one, I love the colour!





Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eye Liner in Blue
I LOVE this! The packaging is just beautiful, very appealing, and the liner itself is just gorgeous! I tested it on my wrist, and it's been hours and it still hasn't smudged, so I'm happy with the road test so far! I was a bit put off by the fact that I got blue, but then I figured it was more of an exciting choice than black, which I probably would have found boring! So all in all I'm happy with that!




Rosehip Facial Scrub
This is really tiny, so I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of it. I was a bit disappointed because there was a coupon included with this, but it expired in March? What the heck Glossybox?!
I probably would have been interesting using the coupon because I adore Rosehip and I'm sure this will be something I'd love to buy full size. Oh well...



So overall, I was very pleased with the final Glossybox. I was sort of expecting a "freebie" in here, as it is their last box, but I can't complain. I've read a few reviews from some girls who weren't too happy with their boxes, but they seem to have gotten completely different things from me. So I guess I can't compare really. I was disappointed that I didn't get the Jurlique Recovery Mask as I just adore Jurlique and would have loved to try it, but nonetheless, I was pleased with everything!

So what did you think of your Glossybox? Have you tried any of these brands?


Also, I need some advice! I've been approached by a company who wants to advertise on my side banner! I'm more than happy to accommodate them, however they're asking me what my rates are! I have no idea what to ask for, and I don't want to get ripped off! Anybody have any idea? Any advise would be much appreciated!!!

  1. They really like sending us moisturisers don't they? I have to pick mine up from the post office tomorrow so hopefully I'll get something similiar to yours as the other reviews I've seen have had no make up products in them whatsoever!

  2. although i dont subscribe to any of these services, i find it so annoying how they dont ever really give you makeup... its all about skincare and random beauty things that are kinda not that useful lol
    on the upside, its great when you get something from a brand that you love :D

    1. Oh I agree, there should be more makeup and less skincare! And they do throw in some stuff that are just like.. "what the?" haha! I really do wish they would add more makeup, but I was happy to get stuff that I liked this time haha!
