April GlossyBox.

Hey Guys, so I'm getting a bit behind with my blogging, uni has been so busy I just haven't had the time but my april glossybox arrived a week and a bit ago maybe longer and I am absolutely in love with it. There are some amazing products in there and this months one is such good value for money.
To start with, this box is beautiful! The cute floaral pattern and pastel orange colour by Pearl Lowe got me excited just looking at it.

So... Product 1: Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy. Sample size 25g. Full size 100g for £14.
I'm not a lover of hand cream just because I have quite soft hands anyway so don't really need it but also because I find so many of them leave some kind of residue leaving my hands feeling sticky or oily (not nice). Anyway I tried it and I now love it, this little sample lives in my bag. It uses macadamia nut oil, shea butter and vitamins C and E which leave your hands really smooth and it soaks in really quickly. It also smells lovely. This Somerset Meadow range is new and actually launches in stores today, I would definately recommend trying this whether you suffer from dry hands or not.

Next up is Essie Nail Lacquer in shade We're In It Together. Full Size 135ml for £7.99.
I have wanted to try the Essie nail varnishes for a while but they're just a bit pricey. I love the colour I got, it's perfect for spring/summer and has kind of an irridescent shine to it in the light. the only thing I found is that if you want a solid colour you do have to put 2-3 coats on but the colour is so pretty that I don't mind. I would definately consider getting a few more shades.

Product three is Illamasqua Medium Pencil in shade Manic. Full size 1g for £13.
I have to admit I haven't tried this yet mainly because I haven't had an occasion to test it out for but I love the colour. This pencil is meant to multi task between eyes, lips and brows. I don't think I'm quite daring enough to use it on my brows but shall definately be giving it a go as an eyeliner. The colour is so bright from just one stroke, it could make quite a cool eye for summer or a festival look. I wouldn't ever of bought this for myself so it's nice to get a product like this that's a bit different.

Onto Yves Rocher France, So Ellixr Purple Yves Rocher Eau de Parfum. Full size 50ml for £44.
 I got rather excited when I saw a little perfume in this months box. When it comes to perfume I don't favour a particular scent or brand and like to have a range to choose from. Somedays I'll wear a Marc Jacobs like Daisy which is really light and floral, then the next I might wear Paco Rabanne Lady Million or versace Yellow Diamond which are stronger and a bit more fruity I suppose. This Yves Rocher perfume is also quite strong and is described as a 'floral-woody elixir'. The more I use it, the more I love it.

Last but not least is Nip+Fab Dry Skin Fix Body Butter in Pistachio Sundae. Sample size 50ml. Full size 200ml for £9.95.
This is definately my new favourite product. It smells amazing! As soon as you open the tub you get this sweet smell like marzipan or battenburg (not quite pistachio) but it's sooo good. I like this more than other body butters I've tried in the past as the consistencey of it isn't as thick and it goes a bit further. You don't have to pile it on to get a decent coverage and the best bit is that the smell stays with you for a good few hours. I have nothing bad to say about this product and when I run out I will definately be buying another. They also do it in Mango Smoothie or Coconur Latte.

Well I hope you enjoyed my GlossyBox post, I love reading and seeing what everyone else got in theres.
