Green is the New Black!


Watch my April Glossybox & mini March Glossybox review video here! :)

April's Glossybox was another special edition (yay!) and this month they went with The Natural Box.  I love when Glossybox do cute and fun things like this, it makes each month even more unique and exciting!  Again the attention to detail that goes into the packaging, product choices and theme is something I really appreciate.  To go along with the eco-friendly theme, the box is bio-degradable, the confetti is a rustic brown cardboard instead of the usual glossy black and the ribbon is a cheesecloth/natural cotton material.  How adorable!

Glossybox have always been supportive of natural & organic brands so I actually recognised some of these but here's a basic rundown of what I got in my box: 


Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum
This says it's for dehydrated skin and my skin type is oily/combination however I've used it a couple of times underneath my make-up and I actually really like it.  It's a very light consistency, non-greasy and just provides a lovely refreshing base to my skin.


Inika Cosmetics Certified Organic Eyeliner
I was so happy to get this in the colour Sapphire, as I'm brown-eyed and have always been told that navy makes my eye colour pop.  So I'm curious to see how long-lasting and pigmented this is.  When swatched on my hand it looks good, so we shall see!

Monu Professional Skincare Enriched Body Cream
I am excited to try this as Jonathan received a couple of Monu products in his Glossybox for Men last time and they are wonderful!  I think I'll save this for Sorrento as the travel size is handy to take with me in my suitcase!  Though I did sample this on a dry patch of skin this morning and absolutely loved the smell.  Very fresh and my skin felt super soft afterwards!

Figs & Rouge Lip Balm 
I could not get over how cute the packaging of this was!  This is a 100% pure, natural and organic peppermint and tea tree balm for face & body.  When I first opened this I was really surprised by how buttery it feels.  It sort of melts at the touch of your skin, and is the perfect little handbag accessory :)

Philip B Drop Dead Straightening Balm
Not sure how much I'll use this serum as it's a supposed to give your hair a sleek, straight finish which is not what I'm into.  But we'll see how it goes, maybe I'll use it to tame flyaways :)

Overall I'm really happy with this month's box.  I am by no means a natural product junkie because I just feel like I haven't done enough research on the subject to make an informed decision about it.  However I'm always open to new things and happy to try out any new brands...if they're natural & organic then that's an added bonus!

If you'd like to sign up to Glossybox you can do so for £12.95 a month here.  They do ship to Ireland and I am happy to report that they now also ship to the US.  Yay!  If you do subscribe to Glossybox and you also received this box, let me know what your thoughts are!  As always, I would love to hear from you guys :)  Your comments mean so much to me! 

Stay Stylish!
