Glossybox: April 2013

April's Glossybox has a theme of "Work That Beauty".  It is all about feel-good products to help you work your natural beauty for spring and summer.  I do think a lot of the time, Glossybox's themes are kind of arbitrary, and the products don't have much to do with them. But, it sounds good, anyway!

I got my box yesterday...and I am pretty happy with it!

I always love Glossybox's packaging. Always so cute and feels like opening a present.

The first thing I noticed when opening my box was the strong minty coffee smell. Sadly, my Wash With Joe bodywash had leaked out all over the box. I was able to clean everything up, but unfortunately, there was not enough left in the bottle to try. They are supposed to be sending me a replacement, so I'm excited to try that. I love the scent of this! It seems like it would be great at waking you up in the morning...and the first ingredient is real coffee! Awesome.

This is a bath tea bag by Bvlgari. Honestly, I'm not that enthused about this, because I rarely take baths in my tiny apartment bath tub. However, I will save it to use after a particularly stressful day. This is the same scent as the Bvlgari soap they sent out a while back, and I actually enjoyed the scent, so maybe I'll love it!

This is a little bonus - and we got it in the January box as well. I loved it, so I am happy to get another packet. It's the Replenishing Daily Solution by Le Metier De Beaute. It's an amazing moisturizer, basically. But, it costs $225, so frankly these little samples are the closest I will be getting to it!

This is a texture spray by Alterna. It is meant to give you beachy waves. I have never had luck with these products before, as they just tend to make my thick, mostly straight hair look messy and kind of dirty, but I am certainly willing to try this one out! 

This is Tigi Glow blush in the shade Awaken. It is hard to photograph! It is actually a tangerine-ish color! Definitely on the orange side of pink. It is super pretty, and different than any blushes I currently have. They sent out 4 different colors this month, and while I initially wanted one of the others, I am now happy with having gotten this one!

Here it is swatched. Again, it is a bit more orangey in real life! 

This is an organic lip balm by The Honest Company. I got the sweet orange vanilla flavor and it's great! It smells just like a dreamsicle, and it feels nice and light. A great basic balm.

I used a code to get a bonus item, as well - a Zoya polish. This shade is Tracie, an avocado green with a pearly finish! I love pretty!

In all, I think this is a pretty good box, especially with the Zoya bonus! 

Here is 2 quick coats of Tracie. Seriously pretty and perfect for spring! I love Zoya so much.

Have you tried any of these items? What do you think of them?

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data
backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
