I always love to receive a good Glossybox and Aprils Glossybox has not disappointed. To me the month of April is (not only my Birthday month!) but its also the month of Spring Cleaning. I know my makeup drawers could certainly do with quite a Spring Clean. So whilst I get on my mission to prepare everything in sight to be blitzed, sparkled and ready for those longed for glorious Summer days, what better time than to receive 5 super convenient products that will shorten my beauty routine whilst adding that little Spring in my step?! Beauty on-the-go in fabulous Glossybox style!
Elgo Deliwash Cleansing Conditioner
This may well be the answer to all my ‘running late in the morning showers’. This beautifully smelling haircare product co-washes! This means it combines the cleansing action of a shampoo whilst also hydrating the hair just like a conditioner, basically a 2-in-1. Elgon’s Deliwash (love the name!) is also free from sulphates, salts and artificial colours that can dry out the hair. This product is gentle enough so it can be used daily and an added bonus is that it claims to help those with Afro hair to be frizz-free. Perfectly sized for the gym bag I may add too.
ModelCo Contour Stick
I have never owned anything from ModelCo even though I know the brand well. When I first opened the box I thought it was a lip crayon because of its bright pink packaging and style but it is actually a chunky contour crayon. Having said that it is extremely versatile and it can be used as a lip or eye colour product as well as for contouring. I have to confess that I am not a huge contour girl, but I do imagine that this product would work well for the girls-on-the-go that like to quickly add some contour to their morning look. As this is a crayon you can glide the product on easily and precisely, then blend for a softer definition. Glossybox have some great contouring tips on their online magazine Beauty Unboxed if you are looking for some inspiration. When I first applied this product on my pale skin I thought it would be way too dark but once its blended it actually leaves a healthy finish, and its so easy to apply that I think I may now even have time to contour a little each day.
Sport FX Double Time Brush Buffer + Powder Duo
A new to me brand and I really like their concept. Sport FX are creating multi-use products that make a quick turnaround at the gym, such a great idea! This dual-ended chunky black brush works with liquids, creams, powders, you name it. You can use the flat end to buff in your foundation or BB Cream, then just flip to use the tapered end for blushers or powders. The soft synthetic Taklon bristles have anti-bacterial properties which is always a huge plus point in a makeup brush, and I always love to receive makeup brushes in Beauty Boxes so big thumbs up to Glossybox for this one.
Merci Handy Love and Hand Cleansing Gel
I already own the Cherry smelling version of this anti-bacterial hand sanitizer, I love its smell, I love the size of the packaging because it fits in every handbag and its just perfect for on-the-go. A little goes a long way so even though it may be small in size I find they last quite awhile too. I received the Black Vanilla scented hand cleansing gel in this Glossybox which smells divine too. I also find that these hand sinitizers don’t dry out my hands like some brands can, even on those cold winter morning commutes they still feel hydrated.
Rodial Glamolash Mascara XXL
Another product I am always happy to receive in a Beauty Box is a good mascara and I have heard great things about this Rodial Glamolash XXL one so I can’t wait to try it. Its a long-wear formula in jet black which is my kind of mascara colour, and it claims to leave lashes supersized but still soft – if this is as good as it sounds I think it way well deserve a blog post all of its own in the near future.
Spring has now officially Sprung thanks to Glossybox with this April edition. I really like each and every product and I know I will use each and every product so April is coming up roses for me. I am especially delighted with the Sport FX makeup brush and the Rodial Mascara XXL. I love that each product will combine to gifting me some precious time-saving minutes each morning as they are all about convenience and quickness. If you too are a girl-on-the go looking for some post-Easter treats then grab the April Glossybox now, it won’t disappoint.
