Beauty : Glossybox April 2017

Another month, another Glossybox!


This month has been so busy with university work that I haven't had lots of time to go out shopping and browsing the makeup stands in boots and superdrug myself, so I always look forward to receiving my little box in the post! The theme of April's box was multi-tasking, which couldn't have come at a better time with my deadlines! This month's box was also in my favourite styling, the classic pink and black colour scheme. So, let's take a look inside...






Elgon Deliwash Cleansing Conditioner - RRP £14.50 
The first product I received this month was the Elgon Cleansing Conditioner. In my house, conditioner is like gold dust, it always seems to go really quickly! I haven't heard of the brand before but love the idea behind the products. This conditioner can also be used on its own or with an accompanying shampoo. I love that this is a 2 in 1 product, and can't wait to give it a proper try soon!



Model Co Contouring Stick - RRP £17
This product was one of the sneak peaks in last months box so I was excited to try it out. I have only used a few contouring sticks like this in the past and have found them awkward to use on my skin tone. The shade of this product isn't as scary to use, and I have actually used it a couple of times already on my cheeks. The product description states that you can use the contour stick to define the jaw and nose as well, although I don't think I am brave enough to try that out yet!




SportFX Definition Duo Eyeliner Pencil - RRP £9.99 *FULL SIZE PRODUCT*
This eyeliner was one of the full sized products that I received in the box this month. My first impressions of it are really positive. I love the packaging and the concept of having the two different eyeliner choices in one. When swatching the product, the colours aren't as dark as I thought they would be which I personally love. The product description also states that you could also use the brown pencil to define the brows so I guess this makes it a 3 in 1 product. The product is also waterproof so would be perfect to use at the gym if you wanted, although I reckon it will be perfect to use on holiday. Stay tuned!



Merci Handy Cleansing Gel - £2.90 *FULL SIZED PRODUCT*
I love a hand sanitiser and always make sure I have one on me whenever I leave the house. I actually have one in my car at all times! I have tried the Merci Hand gels before so knew what to expect from them and was equally as impressed!


Rodial Glamolash Mascara XXL - £24
I was really excited to see a mascara in this months box, especially one that claims to give you BIG lashes without having to actual apply lashes! With that being said, I am yet to try this out as I have a couple of mascara's already on the go. Once I have given it a go, I will report back!

Overall I am really impressed with everything that I received in this months box. Sadly, I think I will be unsubscribing from Glossybox. I have really enjoyed trying out the new products each month but am finding it an expensive thing to do when I am not always happy with everything I get. Hopefully once I have a full time job, and have finished university, I can restart it again!

Until next time,

  1. Some lovely products you got, but a shame that you'll have to unsubscribe! I'm yet to subscribe to a box due to financial status and I'm in two minds about it because so many people get disappointed by them! I think it'll be interesting to have a box a couple of times! X
