April 2012 Glossybox

I actually received my box yesterday - May 1st ... I'm not sure why, but Glossybox always takes longer to arrive than the other beauty subscription services.  Not that I'm complaining ...

So what was included in this month's Glossybox:

Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer
This amazing moisturizing formula is clinically shown to improve the look of tone, texture, dullness, blotchiness and brown spots.

WOW!! ... I adore this moisturizer and often use it on my body as well as my face, especially after a bath or shower

Full Size - 120 ml for $22.99
Sample Size - Full Size!

Elizabeth Grant - Exotic Apricot Shower Gel

OMG this smells sooooo good.  I haven't tried this yet, but am looking forward to taking it with us on our upcoming trip to Florida.  I usually take my old standby - Philosophy's 3-1, but will leave that home this trip.

Full Size - 240 ml for $20.00
Sample Size - Full Size!

Wella Brilliance - Condition and Treatment
This lightweight brilliance conditioner moisturizes colored hair, leaving even fine hair full of vibrant shine and free flowing movement; the brilliance treatment with triple blend technology blends three lightweight polymers to instantly restore hair's vibrancy.  Both with diamond dust.

We received the Wella shampoo in I believe it was February's box, so will take this on our upcoming trip to try as well.

Conditioner Full Size - 250 ml for $13.99
Sample Size - 30 ml for $1.68
Treatment Full Size - 150 ml for $13.99
Sample Size - 25 ml for $2.33

Marcelle - Xtension Plus Mascara
Give your lashes extra length and curl - define and separate lashes while minimizing clumps and create maximum lengthening potential for lash extension look without adding extensions.

I am excited to try this mascara ...

Full Size - 9 ml for $12.50
Sample Size - Full Size!

Also included was a small sample of the Marcelle BB Cream Beauty Balm (I forgot to take a picture of it - but it's about a 0.1 ml sample size.  Very much looking forward to trying this!!

Total value of this box:  $59.50

My thoughts?
Although I was disappointed in the first box, it seems Glossybox has redeemed themselves and has started to send samples that are in keeping with the boxes they offer in the other countries.  I am very pleased with this month's box and am pleased to give it a 5 out of 5!!  Watch out Glymm, Topbox and Luxe Box ... you definitely have some competition!!!

Looking forward to next months box!! If you're interested in signing up for Glossybox Canada ($15/month), I would appreciate if you signed through my referral link: CLICK HERE to sign up.
