I received my April Glossybox in May so I’ve tried to test out the products before submitting my review. I was fairly impressed with the selection apart from the fact I was sent 2 moisturizers which I thought was a tad bit silly. I received a nail polish, gel eye liner and rose hip skin care oil. In addition to this I received a 15% off integrity cosmetics voucher and $25 voucher for the Iconic
I am currently wearing the Blush amour Sunset in paradise nail polish I received. This normally costs $4.95 and can be bought from their website.
In the picture the colour looks like a coral red – almost tangerine as well. At the time they did look more orange than red. Now, when I look at my nails, it looks like strawberry red. I’m thinking it changes colour depending on the light. I have never heard of this brand before, but I find that the nail polish glides on smoothly and evenly. It also dries fast which is always a bonus. I think it’s a cute colour and works well with my skin tone.
Redwin is endorsed by our very own Jennifer Hawkins. I thought it might have a strong fruity scent but the scent is ever so gentle. Redwin create products especially for sensitive skin and use organic products. Integrity did not have the most pleasant smell. It’s probably because of the ingredient mixture of kelp extract, flaxseed oil, aloe vera, chamomile and green tea. The ingredients themselves are good for your body. Together, it just doesn’t smell that great to me. I will continue to use these products but for now will say that they are like any other moisturizers to me. If I notice any significant changes in my skin, I’ll share it but in general I find that they all do the same job and it just comes down to preference.
What I am really excited about to use is the Rosehip Organic Skincare 7 precious oils. It is meant to revitalize the skin and eradicate scars, spots, burns etc to give the skin it’s natural feel and glow.
I am going to implement this into my daily beauty routine and see if I can reduce the spots/scars on my cheeks and chin. Will definitely keep you posted on how it goes.
And, last but not least Mirenesse Tight Liner which is a Hydra gel eye liner. It comes in a pen and feels like you are using liquid liner but sets as a gel eye liner. It is also smudgeproof which is very handy. I received the shade Saphire Blue (yes they spelled Sapphire wrong).
It was easy to apply and I am totally a sucker for packaging. I like blue eyeliners but I know they aren’t for everyone. I like that it doesn’t smudge. Wore this all day and it didn’t smudge – even when I went to rub my eyes because I was tired. Works like magic! I think I have found my new brand of eyeliner
So, there you have it – Glossybox April.
