I see April as a month of awakening. The barren tree branches begin sprouting buds, blades of green grass reach through patches of leftover snow, animals emerge from hibernation, joggers dust off their running shoes, and those who have spent the long winter months keeping warm indoors start spending more time in the fresh air. Lucky for us, Glossybox wants to help with the awakening process this April with its high energy, limited-edition box.
Not only is Glossybox known for including deluxe samples and full size products with its monthly subscriptions, it’s also known for sending these items in a pretty pink reusable box.
Upon opening my April Glossybox*, I was surprised to see that it was not decorated in the company’s signature pink shade. Instead, the box features a Warhol era-inspired image in beautifully bright colours. It’s a true work of art!
As always, the items were carefully wrapped in pink Glossybox tissue paper and tied with a black ribbon.
This month's box comes with a makeup bag featuring a pop-art-inspired image in shades of red and pink.
The first few products include a fragrance, a lip gloss, and an eyeliner.
The fragrance is Aerin from Waterlily Sun. It’s a bright floral blend featuring notes of Sicilian bergamot, dewy greens, delicate waterlily, jasmine samba, and warm musk. I love how this deluxe sample is in a cute little bottle with a spray applicator. It’s perfect for travel and will look nice on display on my vanity.
Following the colourful, energizing theme, this Stained Gloss from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is perfect for giving lips a pop of spring colour. I received the shade Rhythm Box, which is a pretty red shade. Although these glosses look very pigmented in the tube, they are meant to be semi-sheer like stained glass and leave behind a reflective jelly finish. They are also vegan and gluten free.
The third item in the photo below is a Gel Eye Glider from Julep in the shade Smoky Plum. I was very excited to receive this shade since I love purple liners. The gel formula of these waterproof liners is meant to set in 30 seconds and last for 10 hours which is perfect for the warmer months ahead.
This month’s box also includes products for skin and hair.
The first product is Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum. I’m really looking forward to trying this since I have some dark spots on my skin as a result of sun damage from my teenage years.
The last item is Endz: Split End Mender & Preventer from Marrakesh, a nutrient-rich hair treatment that tames and repairs damaged hair while controlling frizz and static with argan oil, hemp seed oil, and hydrolyzed wheat protein. While I don’t have a lot of damage at the moment, my hair is already starting to frizz with the increase in outdoor humidity, so I’m looking forward to trying this product.
Overall, I’m very impressed with the April 2015 Glossybox. The box is a great value with its assortment of skincare, haircare, makeup, and fragrance products from luxury brands. Like I explained in my post last month on the March box, I am so happy that Glossybox is shipping to Canada again. The box is $21 USD per month + $5 shipping to Canada.

I’m looking forward to seeing what Glossybox has in store for May!
