April Glossybox

It seems like ages since the last Glossybox arrived on my doorstep.  I’ve had this box a week now and can honestly say I’m amazed how fab it actually is.

This month's box is the natural box to coincide with Earth Month.  It supports brands that help the environment and believe in natural packaging and ingredients. The box came in a plain brown outer box, and the beige inner box has been made of recycled materials and everything is 100% biodegradable.
I like the idea of the themed boxes, but this is the best one yet.  So, here’s what was in my box ....

Caudline Vinosource SOS thirst-quenching serum (worth £9.66)
This is the first Caudline product I've tried.  It’s an ultra-concentrated serum that sinks in nicely and is extremely natural.  This is a deluxe sample size tube, so it will give me a good chance to see the benefits. 

INIKA Cosmetics certified organic eyeliner (worth £11.75)
I was really lucky to receive this in a usable everyday shade – charcoal.  It’s a nice rich, creamy liner and doesn’t feel cheap and scratchy.   It is a full size product and I would definitely recommend it if you are after a good organic and natural eyeliner with no chemical ingredients.

Monu Professional Skincare moisture rich collagen cream (worth £17.50)
A rich, luxurious cream to relieve dryness and smooth fine lines. This is another full size product but and although I’ve only used this once – I LOVE IT!! Definitely one I’d consider buying when my Demalogica has run out!

Figs & Rouge lip, face and body balm (worth £3.29)
I was really excited to see this in the box.  I know ... it’s the cheapest product in the box, but I really wanted to give this brand a go.  I love these multi-purpose balms and this one is 100% pure natural and organic and can be used on lips, face and body. This is another full size product too.  The packaging for the little tin is adorable and right up my street.  I received the cherry and vanilla flavour.   It is petroleum free and smells like sweets.  It sinks in really nicely and is so nice to use. The balm protects skin against dryness, and is also soothing, nourishing and is just a really handy product to pop in your bag.

Burt's Bees naturally nourishing milk and honey body lotion (worth £3.68)
Apart from the lip balms I’ve never used any other product from this brand.  This product is 99% natural and claims to nourish the skin for up to 24 hours.  I’ve not got round to trying this, but I’m looking forward to trying it out.  It’s the perfect size to take away, so I might have to save it for my hols!

Were you as impressed as me with the April Glossybox?
