I took these pics quite a while ago…uploaded them to the blog and then forgot to share! Oops! The April Glossybox was full of items to enhance your natural beauty and get you summer ready! Here’s what I got:

TiGi Glow Blush: A soft, baked powder formula that effortlessly provides a glow-from-within effect and looks beautiful on all skin tones. My thoughts: How gorgeous is this blush?!?! I was a little concerned that it might be too pigmented but it actually is beautiful on and has just a perfect amount of shimmer to it. I only have a peach blush that I use regularly so I am happy to add a nice pink tone to my collection.

Wash With Joe Coffeemint Body Wash: This body wash contains an invigorating blend of coffee and mint that helps revitalize and balance the body and the mind while keeping skin superbly clean. My thoughts: This smells EXACTLY like a Junior Mint. Which used to be the only candy I would buy at movie theaters. So it totally reminded me of my youth and smells good enough to eat!

Alterna Professional Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist: A weightless texturizing mist that instantly gives natural, “just-back-from-the-beach” waves. Simply spray on damp or dry hair from roots to ends and shape with fingers for loose, tousled style. My thoughts: This was the product I was most looking forward to trying. I bought Bumble & Bumbles “Beach Spray” YEARS ago when it first came out. This reminds me of it only it seems to leave my hair feeling softer than the Bumble one did. I love using this spray to add texture to my just washed hair. Kinda makes you look like you have 2nd day hair (which I like) and gives you that “I just got back from the beach and have perfectly tousled hair” look. =) win.

The Honest Co Honest Organic Lip Balm: Honest Lip Balms are made from organic jojoba and oils from olives, sunflowers and coconuts. Tahititian Tamanu oil, rich with Omega 6 & 9, helps restore vitality and boost moisture. Perfect for maintaining happy, healthy lips. My thoughts: I am very familiar with Jessica Alba’s brand The Honest Co because she spoke at Luckyfabb last year. To be honest (pardon the pun…wait, was that the correct use?), I am not a big “organic” person. But I’ve already thrown it in my bag for stroller strides days. It will definitely get used.

Bulgari Eau Parfumée au thé Blanc Tea Bag for Bath: Eau Parfumée au thé Blanc is a generous and elegant expression of personal indulgence. Relaxing and calming, Eau Parfumée au thé Blanc reflects the precious nature of white tea, offering an intimate and luxurious expression of sensory pleasure. My thoughts: I don’t take baths…gasp! As nice as they sound, I just don’t ever seem to have the time to take them. I’ve always got 76786834768346 other things to do. I will probably give this away.

LE MÉTIER DE BEAUTÉ Replenishing Daily Solution: This rich, emollient formula protects, conditions and hydrates while it nourishes, rejuvenates and detoxifies skin, restoring a healthy suppleness to your skin. Paraben-free. My thoughts: I received a sample of this in my Man Repeller Glossybox and liked it so I was happy to get another sample. It is pricey so I was glad to see they offered a $75 off coupon (which brings the price down to $150…still high for me) w/ code GLOSSYBOX through May 31st.

For those of you who don’t know, Glossybox is a monthly subscription service that offers a curated box of 5 deluxe products for $21/mo. To sign up or learn more about the products included in this months box, click here.

    Great review! I also subscribe to Glossybox but I didn’t write an April review (the month got too busy!) So just like you, I haven’t had the time to try the bath bag either!
