The Pearle Lowe Glossybox - April


My favourite delivery of the month arrived somewhat in between browsing beauty blogs and making some lunch for my rumbling tummy, both of these were thrown to the side so I could explore into my little box of treats. A Glossybox day is always a good day, however with this months, an extremely good Glossybox = an extremely happy me.

So let’s start with my favourite, Nip+Fab - Dry Skin Fix Body Butter in Pistachio Sundae. I have been eyeing this up for endless months now! Pistachio smelling anything will always lure me in, but not purchasing it may have had something to do with the never-ending stash of body butters and moisturizers in the corner of my room. I tested a small amount on my palm and it is safe to say I am not disappointed with how soft the outcome was (as well as still being able to smell the mouth-watering scent). Let’s just say I shall defiantly be in a hurry to get my hands the 200ml tub.
 I often find a perfume sample in my Glossybox and this month it was So Elixir Purple - Yves Rocher. Usually with perfume samples you get those tiny tubes with a couple of spritz, this sample came in a miniature size version of the original which it quite cute (no overly special packaging) but very handy for the handbag. I am quite fussy when it comes to perfume and after dabbing some of this onto the wrist I wasn’t convinced. It is said to have a ‘floral-woody’ outcome, however I have found that after an hour or so on my wrist I can smell fresh-cut grass. Maybe when the weather heats up (if that ever happens) I shall enjoy it more.
To fill the cosmetic hole of the glossybox was Model Co – Cheek + Lip Tint in Rosy Red. Although the colour is described as ‘rosy red’ I would say the outcome is a light blackcurrant, you don’t want too much of this on your cheeks! I dabbed a small amount into my lips and found it to be a lighter colour than on the skin. The 10ml product received retails for £15 so I defiantly got my moneys worth there.
Sunsense – Daily Face SPF… I would say the least exciting of the bunch. At first I was unsure whether it had some foundation coverage inside or if it was just sunscreen, I read to find it to be the latter of the two. This would be perfect for anyone going on holiday anytime soon (sadly not me) but I shall defiantly be trying this out once I get some sun on my face.
Lastly something that made me squeal with excitement when opening up my box, an Essie Nail Lacquer to add to my collection. I received the colour ‘Nice is Nice’ which is, very nice. I have been meaning to get a light purple/lavender colour so this brightened my day up a lot. It seems to be quite sheer so a good 2-3 coat may be needed, but all in all a lovely pastel shade to add for summer. You can’t go wrong with an Essie.
Did I mention how lovely the box designed by Pearl Lowe is? A vintage style floral pattern in black, white and peach shall be the new home for my nail varnishes. It all fits in very well with the theme ‘Spring Fever’ and has defiantly sweetened up my month.
