glossybox: april natural box

| april glossy box- 'the natural box'* |

one thing that is pretty well known about me is that i am big on being eco-friendly. i through away the bare minimum, recycle/donate everything and constantly preach to everyone else about the benefits of doing the same so it was a welcomed surprise to see glossy box joining in this month! not only do all products in the box come from companies who see the benefits of using natural ingredients and helping the environment, the actual box itself is 100% biodegradable! i'm really loving all of the themed boxes it makes getting a box much more exciting knowing that all the products inside are centred around a central theme. (or maybe that's just me?)

i assume all of you know what glossy box is by now? but if not feel free to read back over my first glossy box post where i explained the concept. as usual there was five items in this months box but i was impressed to see that 3 of them were full size in my box! and one of my deluxe samples was a third of the size of a full product making it worth £10! that pays for the box alone!

so what did i get in my box? the first thing that caught my eye was the figs and rouge lip balm. a girl can never have too many and this one is super cute! the packaging has such a lovely vintage feel to it. i was also lucky enough to receive a gorgeous lip liner from inika cosmetics in nude delight which is perfect as i a lip product junkie (seriously my mama wants to sent me to make-up rehab!) plus this is an ideal colour, nothing like any others i've seen before! my final full sized product was a the monu rosewood reviving mist which will be great for hot days over the summer to keep me looking/feeling fresh. the most expensive product in this months box was the caudalie serum which retails for £29.00 full sized so this is an amazing way to try the product so that you know whether it is really worth all those pennies. last but not least was a sample of the philip b styling gel which is used to add volume, texture and definition to the hair, exactly what i'm looking for!

 this samples in this box have been amazing and i will be using all five items in my glossy box so in my eyes that's a massive win! glossy box have really impressed me yet again not just with the box but with the outstanding customer service i constantly receive from them. well done glossy box for showing us all that eco friendly needn't mean using leftover food for a facepack. it really is cool to care and as glossybox so rightly said.... didn't you know green is the new black?
