Glossy Box April, 2012

My April Glossy Box arrived yesterday. Sorry I didn't post this yesterday but I was heading out to a hair show and I didn't want to rush it! 

As I mentioned in my April Lust Have It! post, Lust Have It! and Glossy Box have merged and will now be operating as one beauty box under the name of Lust Have It! If you haven't heard, now you know. Ever since my Beauty Box Comparison post I've been trying to decide which box I liked better and which I would unsubscribe from. With the choices being GlossyBox and Lust Have It! my decision has been made for me. YAY! I hate making decisions. 
I only received this box yesterday, so I'm unable to review the products. Instead, I'll type out the information provided to me so you're able to get some insight into the items. If possible, I'll also include my initial thoughts.
Blush Amour Nail Polish - RRP $4.95
I received a full size nail polish
I like the colour of this product, however the colour is very sheer. I'm not sure how often I'll use this product.

Integrity Cosmetics Protecting Moisturiser - RRP $69.00 for 50mL
I received a 30mL tube of this product
This product sounds nice. As with all the face products I receive in subscription boxes, I think it'll be great for travel.

Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eye Liner - RRP $29.95 for 2g
I received full sized eyeliner in Sapphire Blue
As part of a recent beauty subscription box I scored a Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eye Liner in black (it wasn't in a box, but I was able to get one through their Fb page), so it's great to have it in another colour. I've been looking for a nice blue eyeliner for a while now, so maybe this is the one!
 Redwin Organics Orange and Bergamot moisturiser - Unknown
I received a 100g tube of this product. It may be the full size, but I'm not sure.
I don't moisturiser my body as much as I do, so maybe this product will inspire me. I really like the smell of this product.
Rosehip Skin Care Sun Moisturising Cream - RRP up to $60.50 per 60mL
I received a 3mL sample of this product
Samples this small never really appeal to me. I just think they're too small to fully test the product. That could be just me.

So, that was my last ever Glossy Box. Sadface. You guys may have noticed that I didn't include a little thing about the products included. If you're wondering why, it's because product information wasn't included this time. The card lists eighteen products, so there was no room for an overview. Given that the card has YSL and Jurlique products on it, I'm a little disappointed with what I received. Oh well though, it's the luck of the draw!

Anyway, what do you guys think of the contents of the box? Also, what do you think of the two beauty boxes merging? Do you think it will result in amazing boxes? Did you get any of the higher end products in your GlossyBox? I'd love to know!

Always look your best,

  1. I think that box is a little disappointing. I've used the Redwin Moisturiser before. Its not bad.

  2. That eyeliner was in the January box.

    1. Yeah, it's weird. I think they kind of used up what was left in their warehouse.. haha
