April Glossybox - the natural box

I was so surprised when I opened the outer packing of the April Glossybox.  To begin with I thought it was actually a book I ordered, although it didn't seem very heavy.  Then when I realised there was a Glossybox inside I couldn't believe that it wasn't any shade of pink!

This is the natural edition Glossybox, so it's themed around natural and organic products and even the packaging is fully biodegradable.  I really like the themed boxes, it just adds something a bit more interesting to the whole beauty box thing.

So although you may have already been deluged with Glossybox posts, I thought I'd show you the contents of mine as there's always a real variance from box to box with different people receiving either completely different products, or similar products in different colours or fragrences.


In my box I found the following lovely natural goodies - 

Caudalie vino source 
This is labelled as a thirst quenching serum - my skin says yes please.  I'm really excited to try something from Caudalie - it's a brand I just don't stop hearing about in the blogging world lately and I want to know what all the buzz is about.  I think Glossybox has it spot on including this product in the box - it's certainly a brand I was interested in finding out more about and trying.

Figs & Rouge lip balm
I think I lucked out with the best flavour here - cherry vanilla.  I really like the vintage feel  of the packaging of this product, and it smells great too.  Everyone likes lipbalm I think, so a great item to have in the box.

Yes nurse - protect your lovely hands handcream
Another must have product - I can never have too many hand creams.  I leave them all over my house, in my bags, in my desk drawer at work etc, so that I always have some within easy reach when my hands feel dry.

ayuuri natural bodywash
I've been a bit disappointed with mini body washes in beauty boxes in the past, but this is a much more substantial size, enough for at least a week or two, I'm happy.  I'm not usually a big fan of rose scented products, but this smells quite nice and delicate and I think I'll enjoy using it.

Inka organic lip liner
I got the shade 01 safari - which is a deep nude / brown shade.  I'm a bit dubious about giving this a go without getting the whole Geri Halliwell look circa 1997, so I'll need to make sure I use it with a matching lippie and not a nude one!

This box was sent to me for consideration, but I think I would have been pretty happy to have paid for it.  In my opinion there are no duff products in this month's box.  Now that Glossybox are doing some themed boxes, and following their special Harrods collaboration (I wish I had subscribed that month!), I think they've really upped their game.

Glossybox costs £10 per month plus £2.95 p&p from glossybox.co.uk

Do you subscribe to glossybox?  What did you think of the natural box?
