APRIL GLOSSYBOX - FLORAL

This months glossy box is a fruity and floral combination which, although I wasn't originally sure about, I have to say it works amazingly well! I originally thought there would be 2 separate boxes, one fruity and one floral, but they have managed to blend together both fruity and floral scents in a bunch of products that makes me so excited for the coming Spring and Summer months!

This box is perfect for the beginning of Spring, and the packaging really is beautifully done. I obviously got the floral box, but I think the designs of these boxes just gets better and better!



There isn't actually anything in this box that I don't like (which is really very rare). My only slight complaint about this box is that there isn't any make up products! I love trying new skincare but the reason I was interested in receiving these boxes in the first place was mainly to try new make up brands. However I know there is going to be a Barry M palette in the next box, so hopefully there will be more make up in that one!

SOAPER DUPER BODY LOTION

This is a full size body lotion which makes me so happy! Also the smell of this is amazing, it's zesty lemon with almond oil and lime and orange scents. It is really fresh and great for the warmer weather.  I only really moisturise my legs throughout winter if I'm fake tanning or having a proper pamper night. Once it starts getting warmer I try and moisturise a lot more because I'm much more likely to be getting my legs out!

I haven't tried anything from Soaper Duper before but I was really impressed with how hydrating this product was, I definitely want to have more of a look at what other products they have on offer!


ORIGINAL SOURCE RASPBERRY AND ROSE WATER SHOWER GEL

Another full size here. This smells so good, it took me a while to work out what the scent was, and I think it reminds me of strawberry jelly from my childhood! Its not overly sweet but really refreshing! It actually does feel quite hydrating as well which is great for a shower gel.


I generally tend to stick to the same brands for things like shower gels, and while I do use original source shower gels, I never would have chosen this scent so I'm really happy I got to try it.

It's a pretty standard, nice shower gel, I have no complaints about this one, and I probably would repurchase this if I didn't have tons of shower gels to get through.

DR BOTANICALS POMEGRANITE SUPERFOOD REGENERATING SLEEP MASK


I have never tried anything from Dr Botanicals before, nor have I ever used an overnight mask. I was expecting this product to be very similar to a moisturiser, but it was very thick and almost seemed mattifying on the skin which wasn't at all what I was expecting.

You basically apply this instead of a moisturiser in the evening and then cleanse as usual in the morning. I do feel like my skin looks very smooth and healthy the next morning, but I'm not sure if it really has much more effect than a normal night cream and so I don't think I would repurchase this.

DR PAW PAW HOT PINK BALM

I always love trying new lip balms. Although this says it can be used on any part of the body, it has a very bright pink tint which wouldn't really work on other body parts - I rubbed this on the back of my hand and it almost looked bruise-like which isn't ideal for a moisturiser.


However it does work really nicely as a lip balm, although the pink tint is even a little bright for my lips. I am always in need of a lip balm before I apply my makeup in the morning, and this works really well at hydrating my lips ready for any lip product at the end of my make up routine. It is a really hydrating product and its great for when you have really dry lips to make them fully soft and smooth again.

Its also a pretty big product for a lip balm, which is great because I get through lip balms so fast, particularly through the winter so I know this will last me a long time!

JEANNE ARTHES 'LET YOUR DREAMS BLOSSOM' PERFUME

This is the most beautiful Spring and Summer scent I will definitely be wearing this from now until the end of Summer. I have had a lot of compliments on this perfume and I really haven't used it that often so far. Whenever the sun is out I have just been reaching for this to boost my happy mood and keep me feeling super Summery!


PALMERS CHIA SEED AND ARGAN OIL HAIR MASK

This was an added extra in this months box. I love how often the box contains a hair mask because I rarely go out and buy one for myself, but I love using them to nourish my hair. I have already used this, it was a nice mask, very similar to the palmers conditioners. It left my hair feeling very soft and nourished, but I probably won't go out and get a full size version of this, mainly because I have loads of hair masks to get through already!
