Glossy Box Review April 2013

Image glossy box april 2013

I was given a 6 month subscription to Glossy Box which finished in February and I was swithering whether or not to give it up as also subscribed to Birch Box.  

This month I decided to resubscribe as have found the Birch Boxes a little disappointing.  There seems to be a divide between the boxes, you have the 'great boxes' and the 'naff boxes' and I always seem to be in the category that receives the latter.  I am still giving Birch Box a chance to redeem themselves.

The main thing I love about Glossy Box is the special edition boxes that come out every so often and Aprils box by Pearl Lowe is no exception.  It is gorgeous peach box with a rose motif designed, this is right up my street - favourite colour - peach/coral and favourite flower white roses.  I will definitely be recycling this for trinkets and accessories.  

I always seem to receive my Glossy Boxes towards the end of the month which can be a little annoying at times because I allow myself to read the spoilers.  

I am pretty happy with what I received from Glossy this month, in my box I got:

Nip & Fab Mango Smoothie - dry skin body butter

This smells beautiful, I love mango body butters, It seems very similar to the Body Shop version so very pleased.  

So Purple Elixir EDP by Yves Rocher

Perfume samples are usually a little disappointing to receive in the box however, this is a good size and it a pleasant scent. 

Illamasqua Medium Pencil - White

You can't go wrong receiving a little Illamasqua, I was a bit wary when I received the white pencil however, I used this last night underneath my eyebrow as a highlighter, and when blended in, was really nice.  

Collagen & Aloe Vera Hydro Mask by Etre Belle

 This is a regeneration treatment to improve the skins elasticity and provides hydration.  I like trying new masks and enjoy a bit of pampering so looking forward to trying this out.


The only disappointment was the Lipcote, this product really isn't my cup of tea, I think it tastes nasty when applied and has a odd tingling sensation which I don't like.  I am pretty sure I received a Lipcote recently in a previous box - I could be wrong. 

I noticed some of you got Essie Nail varnish - i'm well jel!  

If you would like to leave your links below to what you got, i'd love to hear. 

Happy Sunday!

  1. You got really diff things to me! I would have love to get Illamasqua :(
    Here's my link:

    1. Hi Callie, thanks for stopping by, I will go and see what you got. xxxx

  2. Great products , i like Illamasqua Medium Pencil and perfume sample in your box, looking forward to subscribe for it once i get enough money :P :D

    1. Hi Sania, yeah most of the time it is worth the 12 quid or so you spend each month but sometimes it is disappointing. x

  3. Ooh the Illamasqua pencil sounds amazing, I bet it'd look gorgeous on the waterline to brighten the eyes! xx

    1. Hi Gem, yeah i'm going to try it on the waterline, i was a bit wary but do like it, some folk got yellow.. which is a bit odd

  4. I got exactly the same box as you! I am going to be doing a review soon as well as it was my first ever box and I haven't tried any of the products that I received before so that was a bonus for me.
    I did a Keek or a Vine you can watch if you use those apps? I am 'jadewiggins09'
    Jade x

    1. Hi Jade, the Glossyboxes are normally quite good and the special edition designed boxes are lovely when you get them I do have the Keek app I will have a look at your vid and check out your blog too. xx Laura

  5. I can never decide if I think its worth signing up to these boxes one looks great and the next looks rubbish! I can never decide if its worth it! X

  6. The Glossybox looks so beautiful! I wished that they had them in Australia. x

  7. Love the products in this book, everything looks great!


  8. Love the look of the Illamasqua eye pencil but agree that the lipcote is a bit naff :( I got Essie in mine which was a lovely surprise x
