Wow! Did anyone else notice how HEAVY this box was???? It made me very excited!
One thing that I have to say about Glossybox is that, despite their rough start, they are making up some really good ground. I've always loved their packaging - their boxes are such great quality and the ribbon is a nice rusty rose grosgrain. It may not be customized like Luxebox, but I can overlook that.
AVEENO - POSITIVELY RADIANT DAILY MOISTURIZER
Full size : $22.99 for 120 ml
Box size : full size
I've never tried Aveeno face products, other than the under eye roller ball, so this will be interesting. Everyone I've talked to say that they use this and love it. It does have SPF 15 in it, which makes me very weary. I find that products with SPF in it make me very greasy, has an unappetizing smell and I just don't like the feel of it on my skin. This one seems no differently in the smell department, but my skin seems to absorb it right away, so it looks promising. I can't believe I received a full size of this product!!!!
ELIZABETH GRANT SKIN CARE SHOWER GEL IN EXOTIC APRICOT
full size: $20 for 240ml
box size: full size
Of course the first thing I did was smell it. UGH! It was very strong and not natural smelling. Coupled by the fact that I don't like shower gels...this was not a win for me. Apricot just seems like just a strange scent to be sending out to people. You would have thought they'd pick a more common scent like Vanilla or even Strawberries.
WELLA BRILLIANCE CONDITIONER FOR FINE TO NORMAL HAIR
full size : $13.99 for 250ml
box size : $1.67 for 30ml
This product is meant for colour treated hair, but I don't have colour treated hair. It's okay though, I'll use it - because it smells FAN-TAS-TIC! Plus, I really like Wella products.
WELLA BRILLIANCE TREATMENT FINE TO NORMAL HAIR
full size : $13.99 for 150ml
box size: $2.33 for 25ml
I think that this is supposed to be a hair mask? It doesn't really say on the product, in the description card or the Wella pamphlet that was included. I don't have the patience for hair masks, but since this one smells so awesome, I'll just *have* to use it!
MARCELLE XTENSION PLUS MASCARA
full size: $12.50 for 9 ml
box size: full size!!!
This mascara is supposed to define, separate your lashes while minimizing clumps and creating maximum lengthening potential for a lash-extension look without the extensions. I've never really used Marcelle products before, but since I'm so picky about mascaras, i might just give this one away and not waste it.
Also included was a small packet of Marcelle BB Cream. I'm not even going to include this in value of the box because it's so small. I'll probably try this out, but I'm not sure if I'm going to like it - BB creams and I have a very love-hate relationship. And besides, this small packet will most likely be a one time use anyways.
Total Value of box: $59.49.
Box Rating : 4 out of 5.
YAY for so many full sized items! Despite the fact that I'm going to be giving away the mascara and probably the shower gel, I'm really excited to try out the face moisturizer and the hair products...and if I did use shower gel, I would have been happy to receive the Elizabeth Grant shower gel.
What did you think of April's GlossyBox?
