Glossy Box - April

April Glossy Box

Sunsense - Daily Face SPF
GlossyBox says...
" Sunsense Daily Face SPF 50+ is a light, soft cream, tinted for a sheer matte finish. This oil-free formula is ideal for all skin types, including combination and oily skin. As an added bonus, this powerful multi-tasker also helps protect against premature ageing from sun exposure. This is one item that shouldn't be missing in your daily skincare routine."

I have never heard this brand before, but I'm looking forward to giving it a try. I like to wear tinted moisturisers and BB creams in the summer to give my usually sunkissed face a bit of a break.

ModelCo - Cheek + Lip Tint in Rosy Red
GlossyBox says...
"ModelCo's Cheek and Lip tint adds the perfect amount of colour for a naturally flushed 'just pinched' cheeks and a sexy pout to match! At Glossybox we love a good multi-tasker, which is why we've chosen this duel purpose tint that delivers an instant and natural rosy glow. The best bit? It suits any skin tone, no wonder it's one of ModelCo's bestsellers.

I'm not a lip girl so I will probably only wear this on my cheeks but after doing the swatch and testing it out I know it's gonna take a bit of practice but I will give it a  go.

Nip + Fab - Dry skin fix Body Butter in Coconut Latte
GlossyBox says...
Winter can be tough on your skin. Now that Spring has finally arrived, it's time to treat your hands to an all-around recovery programme. Nip + Fab’s ultra-rich Mini Mango Smoothie Body Butter. This indulgent, whipped body butter repairs dry and dehydrated skin with the 24-hour moisture-boosting ingredient Aquaxyl™, which has been shown to improve the skin’s water reserves, instantly improving the appearance of your skin.

I really like body butters so I would be up for trying this I got the coconut latte which at first sniff does smell like coffee ( not sure if I want my body to smells like coffee!) but on second sniff it smells like Play-Doh so not too sure yet.

Essie Nail Lacquer - Nice is Nice #38
Glossy Box says...
For nearly 30 years essie has provided an infinite pallet of shades for high quality professional manicures, establishing the brand as USA’s nail salon expert. Out of all the eye-popping colours made famous in the salon line, we have hand-picked 78 absolute can’t-live-without shades now available on the high street for use at home.

I Love essie Nail varnish and I'm slowly growing my collection nicely. Now I'm not usually a Lilac kinda gal but I really love this colour and it's perfect for the Pastel trend of Spring and Summer and I have already been wearing it.

Yves Rocher - So Elixir Purple Eau de Parfum
Glossy Box says...
Building on Yves Rocher’s So Elixir, launched in 2009, So Elixir Purple is described as an ‘intoxicating and magnetic fragrance’, and boasts a unique infusion of Tuberose, Vetiver and Patchouli culminating in a floral-woody elixir. Much like the evolution of the So Elixir fragrance itself, Purple is the perfect scent for the headstrong, passionate woman who embraces change and isn’t afraid to reinvent herself.

This is such a cute little bottle of perfume, as many of you will know I only wear one brand of perfume (JoMalone) but it is is really nice I'm pretty sure I wouldn't but the full size but I would but it as a gift.

Did you get anything different to me?
