April Glossybox!...

Hello April! This month the packaging for the glossy box has been specially designed by Pearl Lowe. It is beautiful!!
I love the floral print it has a real vintage feel. when I opened the box there was the usual tissue paper and ribbon but the sticker was also designed by Pearl Lowe.
The theme of this months box is spring fever which I think is a great theme as the weather is finally warming up a little bit :)
So above you can see all the products that came in my box this month. Lets take a closer look at the products.

First up is my favourite product in the whole box if not of all the boxes I have received. It is a Essie nail polish. I have been wanting to try Essie for so long but have always gone with a different brand when it came down to choosing.

The colour I have been sent is called Rosebowl and is a lovely red/pink colour.The formula of the polish is great and in the future I will definitely be getting some more of the range. It went on smoothly and dried super fast :)

This is a full size product and it is worth £7.99

The next product is a body butter by the brand Nip and Fab. I have been sent the Mango Smoothie dry skin fix. I think that this is a good size sample but Im always reluctant to try other brands of body butters after I have tried and loved the Body Shop ones. No other brand I have tried has the right consistency they aways feel like moisturisers rather than a body butter.

The smell is nice though and I will probably use this more in the summer.

The full size (200ml) of this product is £9.95 which makes my sample of 50ml worth £2.48.

In this months box there is another perfume sample but I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the sample as well as the way it has been presented :)

The sample is by the brand Yves Rocher and is called So Elixir Purple.

The scent of this perfume is really nice it is florally but not in an overpowering way.
I actually think I would wear this perfume and the fact that the sample is such a good size means I can really try it out before I buy.

I think the packaging of this sample is awesome just like a little potion bottle :)

The full size of this product is £44 for 50ml, my sample is 5ml which makes it worth £4.40.

Second to last is a blush from the brand Sleek my sample is in  the shade Suede. It isn't a colour I would normally pick out for my self but after swatching and applying to my face I really like it, it's really subtle but adds just enough colour to your face to give your a healthy glow.

I have tried many Sleek products and I have loved them all I think it is a really great brand.

This is the second full size product in this months box and is worth £4.49

The final product this month is also full size. It is A- Derma's Intense repair lip balm.

I think out of all the products in the box this is my least favourite just because I have so many lip balms that I don't need anymore. The packaging is a little boring as well which makes me instantly dismiss it. I did try this product out on my lips and if you have really dry lip I think this would be great for you.

Like I said before this is a full size product (15ml) worth £7.95.

So thats is for this month, I think this is a great box well done Glossybox, the packaging was stunning this month and the samples inside were all really good sizes which makes me happy :)

The total worth for this months box is £27.31 which is super and definitely make it worth my money!

Do you like Essie nail polishes? what is your favourite shade? Do you think this months box is fantastic like I do?
