Glossybox April 2012

I was so excited for this month's Glossybox and when I received it in the post this morning it definitely didn't disappoint!

So, obviously the first thing I noticed about my box, was that it wasn't its signature baby pink colour. On the little card inside it explains 'With spring in the air, we are proud to introduce out Natural Beauty box; five natural beauty products guaranteed to make you feel your best, look gorgeous while at the same time satisfying the green goddess within.'  And I think this is great.

Kai Perfume Oil

'Our intoxicating signature  perfume oil fragranced with Kai's light, intoxicating blend of Gardenia wrapped in white exotics'  

On the top of my Glossybox was this simple little bottle of perfume oil, and to be honest I put this aside whilst I was revelling over the other things in my box. But when I came back to smell this, I'm definitely glad I did. This is the most flowery perfume I have ever smelt in my life! It's quite literally, Summer in a bottle.

Inika Cosmetics Certified Organic Eyeliner

'A rich and creamy consistency unparalleled in the world of natural liners' 

The description says it all really. This eye liner glides on really smoothly and is super pigmented. It also smudges out really well before it 'sets' so would be great for creating a beautiful smokey eye.

Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum

'This newly-launched ultra-concentrated serum is extremely natural and plant-based, ensuring your skin never lacks moisture' 

I've only tried this on the back of my hand, but a teeny tiny amount goes a looong way and skin drinks its smooth, velvety-ness up in an instant. 

Figs & Rouge Lip Balm

'100% Pure, 100% Natural and 100% Organic Multipurpose balm. Excellent for Soothing and Naturally Hydrating dry lips and skin'

I was delighted to see this in my Glossybox as I had actually planned on buying it as I'd heard good reviews about it. I'd like to start with a warning: Do NOT do what I did and stick your finger in it thinking it's hard. It's not, and now I have big dip in it (doh!). Secondly, this stuff is really smooth and applies very smoothly. I like it, I like it a lot (Dumb and Dumber style).

EDIT: I had a reaction to this, read about it here.

Ayuuri Natural Body Wash

T'he Ayuuri Natural skincare range is based on fruit, plant and flower extracts that have long been used in India to enhance skin's natural beauty'

This smells absolutely bootiful! I love the scent of Sandalwood so was really happy that I received this one. It leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean yet nourished at the same time.

Where else to find me:


  1. There certainly seems to be a bit of variety again this month in terms of the actual contents. I would be very happy with this selection though. That body wash looks great!
    I really want to avoid the hair straightening serum as it is something I really don't need, but we shall see... x

  2. The lip balm and body wash look lovely! xo
