April Glossybox Review


Hi all,

Here we are again! Another month.. another beauty box!

This month has flown by and I couldn’t believe I was getting my glossybox sooo soon. Nice (non)suprise! hehe

Here is what my box looked like when I opened it! I was so intrigued!


Opened box and the smell was magnificent! MmmMM. Made me think of the beach.



Here is what was in my box!

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Lip Blush
Full sized -- $18.70


I had never heard of this brand until I got this box. But I’ve been wanting to try something like this as it kind of reminds me of the Chubby stick from Clinique. I also enjoyed receiving this as it is free of sulfates, animal by-products ammonia and alcohol. There were other things listed but I didn’t know what they were or what they meant! lol.

So I tried this and I fell in LOVE!!!! Not only was the colour amazing but it went on smoothly and I only needed two coats. I received the red.. my mom received the pink.. I also have to say the pink looked amazing on her as well and really suited her. 10/10 would buy again!! ;)

The only thing I didn’t like as much was that most “stains” I’ve used dry and add colour to your lips and this one stayed moist. That meant no kisses for the boyfriend :(. Oh well! A girl’s gotta look good!

Rating: 5/5

Schick Hydro Silk Razor
Full sized -- $10.99


Every girl can use a new razor! I actually dislike most female razors as the head of them is usually SO awkward, large and bendy but this one seemed different. I tried this the day I received it and was surprised at how well it worked. First off, it worked better than any razor I’ve used as I have a tiny section on my armpits that is awkward and the hairs face the wrong way. Usually I have to shave in multiple directions but this picked all of it up! yay!

The thing that really got me was the moisturizing feature.. I don’t know how they did it but I really saw a difference! My skin felt great! I’d probably be interested in buying these razors again.. especially considering they gave me some coupons! whoohooo!!!

Rating: 5/5

Boscia Recharging Night Moisture
$44/44ml


This arrived at the perfect time as I am almost out of my Body Shop Aloe Vera Night Cream. I probably have a weeks worth of it left! I decided to try this one and after putting it on my skin felt great and wasn’t irritated. I did however dislike the smell a lot.. I can get over that though.  I will likely keep using this sample.

Rating: 4/5

Pop Beauty Glitz Eyeliner- Waterproof
Full sized -- $15


Another brand I have not heard of.. but I’m always willing to try new eyeliners. I tried this one though and was incredibly disappointed. Not only was the colour pretty ugly.. but I hated the way it went on. It was not smooth at all.. Plus after applying it my eyes watered up like crazy :(.

I’d be willing to give it another shot but would not purchase.

Rating: 0/5

Heartland Fragrances
$10.10/300oz


So this is what was giving off that amazing smell!! mmmMMMmMM I don’t usually take baths but I may start doing so more often! I also used this item the day that I received the box. I decided to try it in the shower as a scrub.. I would say it was just okay. It dissolved almost immediately which I didn’t like but was not overly surprised. The smell was really amazing though made me feel relaxed and less stressed. I really think this works best in the bath and can’t wait to try it there. Unfortunately I do not see myself having a bath in the next few weeks.. or even months so will not wait to review it until then.

Rating: 3/5
Extras: In this box I also received a coupon to try the Silhouette Greek Yogurt (which I’ve been wanting to try) for free as well as a coupon for disposable razors and razor blades for the new razor I got. Whoopie!!! I’ll definitely be using these coupons!

Box total: approx $66.79 (Night Moisture cream was not full sized as they advertised)

Box overall rating: 3.5/5

Once again we received 3 full sized items which I LOVE!!

I also mentioned in the last post that I would let you know how the Youth Code Dark Spot corrector is working. So far I notice a tiny difference and the spots are starting to fade!! woohoo!!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned next month for my next glossybox review!
