Spring Fever With Glossybox! April 2013 (Pearl Lowe Edition)


Sorry but can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this box is? The box alone is just stunning and will be one that I will happily hoard/ use for nail varnishes for many years to come. It's a special edition box that Pearl Lowe designed. Who is Pearl Lowe? I hear you cry. Well she is the mother of Daisy Lowe, the incredibly beautiful model, she also is a fashion and textiles designer and was once a singer. I think she definitely made the right career change. 

Now onto the products, Glossybox seem to have stepped up their game yet again and I am totally loving this months box. The handful of products that I received are way above satisfactory, and they tick all my boxes. 

Yves Rocher So Elixir Perfume
Right so I am totally purchasing this perfume, it smells so damn good. I smelt it in the bottle and I was like, meh I can deal with that, took the plunge and had a little try and my God, it's amazing. It reminds me of my mum's perfume which is Tom Ford's Oud Wood but a little more toned down. It smells absolutely incredible and I will own it. 

Model Co Cheek & Lip Tint
Having never tried a Model Co product before, I was a bit nervous and I'm not usually one for a tint, having had an awful experience with Benefit's 'Benetint' when I was about 16 but let's not dwell on that. I mean I like the idea of them as they seem to have a lot of staying power, but then there's the fear of not being able to get it off! Anyway, I tried a bit on the back of my hand first and it's actually really nice. It's a really nice colour, and it will give a really pretty flush to the cheeks. I haven't yet tried it, but when I've plucked up the courage, it may be a keeper!

Essie Nail Polish in 'Tart Deco'
What more can I say about it? It's coral, check. It's a full size product, check. And it's bang on trend, check. I was actually rather surprised to see this in my box but I've wanted to try this product for quite some time now and now I have it! Dream come true. As you may know, I have been rather obsessed with corals recently and have been purchasing a lot of corally, peach nail varnishes, or even dupes to curb my Tart Deco obsession. Barry M's 'Papaya' and Sally Hansen's 'Peach of Cake' are virtually or even exact dupes for Tart Deco and it can never hurt to have too many of the same colour nail varnish, right? I'm sure we've all been there.

Sun Sense Daily Face Invisible Face Tint
A product nor brand I'm familiar with, this is basically a tinted moisturiser complete with built-in SPF. As I'm sure you know I'm really not attracted to the whole BB Cream/ tinted moisturiser craze,
but I think this could come in use for when I'm in Dubai in July. Either chilling by the pool or walking around I could wear this without feeling uncomfortable (plus I won't run the risk of running into anyone I know) so I'd definitely give this a go while I'm out there. The only downside is that it has one of the annoying lids that once you rip off, you won't be able to seal again, and there is far too much product in the tube for a one use only kind of thing, so that's a bit of a bummer. Apart from that really excited about trying this out.

Nip + Fab Coconut Latte Body Butter 
Oh my goodness, yes you heard right, COCONUT LATTE. Hubba, hubba. So perfect for me, anything with coconut in, I'm down for. It smells exactly as you'd expect it to smell (like heaven) and I couldn't wait to slather this all over myself. However, it either sinks in crazily fast or it doesn't do a fab (get it) job at hydrating my skin, despite being a 'dry fix body butter'. It doesn't really feel like I've applied anything after I've used it, but I have been using it pretty sparingly for fear of it running out. I am in love with the smell though and we've yet to set the date for our big day.

Hope you enjoyed this, and if any of you have any other opinions on the products listed, let me know as I'm always up for a bit of a debate!
