It’s been a long time since I’ve received a Glossybox impressive enough to inspire me to blog about it, but April’s edition features a collaboration with Pearl Lowe and I love each and every item in this month’s box, and it’s no wonder as it’s inspired by all things vintage and floral. The box alone is beautiful to look at and I’ll be keeping it out on display in the bedroom. As for what’s tucked away inside the box, it’s filled with lovely things…
Essie Nail Lacquer in Cute As A Button
I love this vibrant, coral shade. It’s the perfect colour for spring and as the weather improves it’ll look great paired with a tan and some pastel outfits.
Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy
I always keep a hand cream nearby so I was delighted to find such a pretty one from Crabtree & Evelyn – a brand I haven’t tried before. The soft meadow scent is ideal for this time of year and it’s highly nourishing with its macadamia nut oil, shea butter and vitamin enriched formula. I’ll be purchasing the full size when it’s released into stores on April 29th.
Nip+Fab Dry Skin Fix Pistachio Sundae Body Butter
I love a good body butter so this was another welcome addition. I’ve been wanting a pistachio scented product for a while and had been considering the pricier Laura Mercier range, so this arrived at just the right time. This whipped body butter gives long lasting hydration to the skin – which is just what I need to sort out my legs after six months in hiding!
Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Elate
I received Elate, a true white which is always handy to have to brighten up and widen the eyes. The creamy texture glides over skin easily so there won’t be any tugging on the delicate waterline.
Yves Rocher France So Elixir Purple
The 5ml sample of this floral fragrance arrives in an adorable dinky purple bottle – a refreshing change from the ubiquitous tube style spritzer in cardboard. The scent itself is lovely, a light floral aroma with hints of woodiness. I’ll be placing my heavier scents aside in favour for wearing this Tuberose and Patchouli elixir during the spring months.
I really love this month’s limited edition box. The selected products all fit the ‘Spring Fever’ theme perfectly and I’ll be putting all the products to good use, and the peachy floral box just makes it all the more enjoyable!
