April Glossybox - Canadian EditionMonday, April 30, 2012
I received my April Glossybox today! Just in time since it's the last day of the month. I was also pleasantly surprised at the speedy delivery by Canada Post. The tracking number told me it wouldn't arrive until tomorrow.
The first thing I noticed about this box was the weight. It was pretty heavy... it was
1. Marcelle BB Cream
BB Creams are so in right now. Who doesn't want an 8-in-1 product? This is supposed to enhance your skin by evening out your skin tone and also provides anti-aging properties. It comes in two shades light/medium and medium/dark. The full size retails for $22.95.
2. AVEENO Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer
I love Aveeno products and their positively radiant collection is lovely. It is clinically shown to improve the texture and dullness of skin. I like that there's an SPF, even if it's just 15. This is a full size product and it retails for $22.99.
3. Elizabeth Grant Skin Care Shower Gel
A great bath and shower gel with a delightful fragrance. I love that you can use this for a nice bath or for a quick shower. This is full size and retails for $20.
4. Wella Brilliance Conditioner and Treatment
I have never used Wella products before so I was happy to receive these to try. Apparently that one of the ingredients in these products is diamond dust. Very luxe.
The Brilliance conditioner is supposed to moisturize and give hair a vibrant shine. The Brilliance treatment is supposed to instantly restore hair's vibrancy. Probably something that I could use because this drab weather is playing games with my hair. The full size products retail for $13.99 each.
5. Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara
This is a new mascara from Marcelle. It is supposed to give your lashes extra length and curl, while minimizing clumps. It has a nice wand. It's not too big (I don't like big wands -- they're kind of scary) and it has fine plastic bristles to comb through the lashes. I haven't tried it yet so I can't confirm, but I'm excited to try it. I love new mascaras. This is the full size and it retails for $12.50.
This box was great! I like the variety of products -- there's some skincare, makeup, and hair products. Plus, all the full size products were a great bonus. I try not to expect full size products -- since this is really a service that offers deluxe samples -- but it's always exciting to get them.
What did you think of this month's box? xx
