April Glossybox.

1. Crabtree and Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy (£14): This is an exclusive launch of Crabtree and Evelyn's new fragrance line, Somerset Meadow. This product is rich in macadamia oil, shea butter and antioxidant vitamins C and E which help it heal and restore dry skin. The new collection launches on April 29th. I wanted a new hand cream as I haven't had one through the winter and I can see some dry patches which really annoy me. This cream does everything it says on the tin, moisturises and restores skin with a lovely, fresh and subtle scent.


2. Yves Rocher "So Elixir Purple" Eau de Parfum (£44): I'm really getting into my perfumes at the moment, so it was lovely to test out this scent! This eau de parfum combines tuberose, vetiver and patchouli to create a mix of florals and wood scents. I did find that at first the fragrance can be quite overwhelming and strong, baring in mind that I like subtle and light scents, however I started enjoying after about half an hours wear. It's a nice perfume to wear to work on days when you have meetings or I can imagine it being worn by professionals such as lawyers and directors. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that this is a pretty strong yet alluring perfume! I'm only marking it down one point as I'd like it to be a little more subtle.


3. Nip+Fab Dry Skin Fix Body Butter in Pistachio Sundae (£9.95): I've actually used a whole full sized tub of this a couple of months ago, so I was pretty happy to see a little version in my Glossybox (you can read my mini review here)! I love the scent of Pistachio Sundae and Nip+Fab products have never let me down in terms of how good they are. Apply the body butter after a shower or a bath, it's got a really nice whipped texture and the scent alone is just delish.


4. Essie Nail Lacquer in Pansy (£7.99): Essie is one of the cult, must have nail polish brands and most bloggers rave about the colours. I got my first Essie colour last year, which was Bikini So Teeny, and I like the colour, the brush made it really easy to apply, but it's not something I would shout about. I found Essie not better and not worse than most cheaper nail colours, I think they definitely have an amazing choice of colours but it's just overpriced. It doesn't stop me occasionally buying them and to be honest I did fall in love with Beyond Cozy (review here) but I would honestly purchase more colours if they were priced at a nail polish average £5. Like this is a really cute, spring pink and I think it looks lovely with the romantic floral trends of Spring 2013. However, my points go down for price.


5. Illamasqua Medium Pencil (£13): My favourite product of the box, this multitasking pencil is like gold dust to girls on the go! It can be used as eyeliner, lip liner or brow pencil so i just throw it in my bag and use it after work to glam up before cocktails, or just to give my face a quick pick me up halfway through the day. Today I have used it as an eyeliner and not only is it easy to use and blend, it also makes my green eyes stand out from a mile away.


This months box was designed by Pearl Lowe inspired by the English countryside. It's a cute pinky peach box, and I'm starting to use my old boxes for storage, which looks cute and they are the perfect size to keep most of my beauty purchases in.
