Glossybox April - Au Natural

I was super excited to receive this month's glossybox as although I've heard rumours of the natural theme I've been ridiculously good and not looked at any spoiler posts on it. Which is probably a first for me and reminded me of the reason I first subscribed - for the surprise :) 

I love the themed boxes and the different coloured boxes are so useful - especially this one as it fits in my bathroom perfectly! I'm not crazy into organic and natural products but I do like to use them when I can so I was very excited for this box to try out some products I'd never tried before. 

Caudalie - Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum 
Full Size £29 - Sample worth £9.66 
I've read lots of good things about Caudalie recently and have quite a few things on my wish list. I've also wanted a serum for ages - this smells divine a real fresh skin care kind of smell if that makes any sense at all. I'm so excited to this was in the box and I can't wait to try it out properly as a full size serum definitely needs to be bought by me soon. 

Inika Cosmetics - Organic Eyeliner in Green Lagoon
Full Size - £11.75 - Sample worth £11.75 
I've never heard of this brand before and I'm always loving getting something like an eye-liner in my glossybox. I love the consistency of this its super creamy and comes in lovely gold and black packaging. I also like that I got green as I have a whole host of black eye-liners so being able to try something different I wouldn't normally buy is always a plus for me. 

Monu Professional Skincare - Body Cream 
Full Size - £23 - Sample Worth £3.45
I received a Monu face cream in a previous box which was far too fragranced for me and just broke out my skin so badly. This smells gorgeous and I always like receiving little body creams because I haven't had to buy any since starting my glossybox subscription last November! I don't think you can really go wrong with body cream really other than awful scent I find them all pretty similar I wouldn't pay the £23 full size price for this though as I do find £1 supermarket brand creams do the same. 

Figs and Rouge - Balm 
Full Size - £3.29 - Sample Worth £3.29 
Adore this products kind of old Parisian packaging - its gorgeous! It smells of peppermint and tea tree and really feels like it instantly wakes you up. It says it can be applied lip, face and body. I think I'll be using it mostly for lips and blemishes or dry spots of skin as the tea tree will be perfect. This is ideal hand bag material! I love it! 

Phillip B - Drop Dead Straightening Balm
Full Size - £17 - Sample Worth £1.43 
I feel like I've kind of got my hair routine down to a tee at the moment so haven't bought any new products in a while. Always open to trying new things I wear my hair mostly curly at the moment so this will definitely be pulled out when I have a straight day. 

Overall this box comes in at £29.56 which is brilliant. As always I know it's not about the worth but it just is reassuring to know you've got a little bit of value for money. I love this box - it's full of products I probably wouldn't have picked up but all ones I love and it's got a really good variety for me. Well done again to Glossybox I think they keep pulling it out of the bag recently. 



  1. I got the same box as you! :) I really wish I had got the body wash instead of the body cream though x

  2. love the whole natural box idea but kinda glad i unsubscribed. the lip balm sounds nice though.x
