Aprils Natural Beauty Box

Okay so lets pretend its not the middle of May and I was doing this in April yes? But it did come at the end of the month so its not like I've left it weeks and weeks and... oh wait I sort of did but never mind. There's loads of these reviews anyways, but I still like posting them :) Aprils came a few days after my birthday so I liked opening things all week, including presents and my blog swap package :D This month we had another limited edition type box, and the theme this time was for everything to be Natural. I liked the idea, and the box came in a plain brown box instead of the usual black with pink, and to be honest I think they could stick with the brown box rather than printing if they really want to make a difference. Then the glossy box itself was a biodegradable one but still cute. It's not pink like in my above picture (Instagram filter) but a creamy beige colour and it reminds me of wedding stationary type of things, do you know what I mean?

Inside came a Figs and Rouge lipbalm in Rambling Rose. Figs and Rouge are everywhere at the moment, and I can see why! I didn't particularly like the smell (Rose isn't my favourite scents) but I love the consistency and texture. It's so soft and a bit rough but smooth at the same time. I know that doesn't make sense but it feels lovely and I'm scared it'll all be gone soon the amount I use lipbalm. Plus, its multipurpose to meaning you can use it on dry skin, cuticals etc and I love multipurpose things!

I also had a small Kai perfume oil sample. You dab onto your pulse points instead of spraying and again not a huge fan of the scent but its not that strong. It reminds me of something my nana wears so I feel a bit like a granny wearing it tbh. 

The Caudalie Thirst Quenching Serum was okay but I've not used it enough to see if it works. I am going to try it every day to see if I see any improvements on my dry skin. Its easy to use, but the consistency is a bit runny, doesn't aggravate or sting my skin and unlike the other two products I don't mind the scent! There is a faint scent but I can't really pick it up.

I had Body wash by Ayuuri in Coconut. I love the smell of coconut so loved this one! However I had like a MILLION bath and body products for my birthday and still have some left over from Christmas so haven't got round to using it yet, but it smells nice so I can't wait. 

And last but not least I got the Inika Cosmetics eyeliner in purple. Its a really nice colour and very good staying quality for a natural product, I don't know why but I expected it to not be that great. I've started branching out into wearing different eye coloured make up so its a bit fun since my other eyeliners are black, brown and teal. 

Overall its not been the best box but still some lovely things. As I always say to people even if you only love one or two things it's still worth it. If you're interested in getting a Glossy Box it's £10 a month not including delivery which is just under £3 I think. It's fun to get every month and is a present from me to me!


  1. I got near enough the same box, but 2 products different. I really liked this one, it was different! Although some of the scents are a bit full on like the lip balm! haha xx

    1. I really liked the different ideas they had for it, and probably would have loved it more if I'd had different scented things, but it just smelt too grannyish to me sadly, but I'm looking forward to the next normal box and themed one too! :D
