april glossybox.

I received my 4th GLOSSYBOX about a week ago and honestly, this (along with the January box) has been my favorite so far!! The second I saw Essie, Khiel’s and Maria Galland I was a happy camper :) An Essie polish by itself costs 9.99€ in Austria, so it was a great deal to receive it in the box. If you’re thinking of trying the GLOSSYBOX you can save -50% now with the code ‘glossy50’.

The theme of this box was Mother’s Day – it contained products for both moms and daughters, which I thought was a very sweet idea!! I put the theme right to action by giving my mom the Kiehl’s Dark Spot Solution and my sister got the Maria Galland Lipgloss in rosé, that way the 3 of us all had something from the box – sharing is caring, right?

Obviously  I can’t say much about this product since I gave it away, but I am always a fan of anything Kiehl’s! I’ll ask my mom how it has worked for her when I see her the next time.

This is probably my favorite product from all the boxes I ever received: Essie “Cute As A Button”. It has been on my to-get list for a while (along with Mint Candy Apple and a few others) and I was so happy to receive the full-size bottle in the GLOSSYBOX this month. I applied it on Monday and kept it on until Saturday with only one little chip on my in left index finger. For me, personally, Essie is the longest lasting brand, I can usually wear one color – 2 coats plus base & top coat – for a week.

Another product that I really liked was the Maria Galland lip gloss in a very subtle rosé color. My sister wore it the past weekend and the gloss goes on nicely without being sticky. It also has a very pretty shimmer to it.

I have yet to try the white tea cream by Rau Cosmetics, usually I try to stick to my regular products since my skin is super sensitive. But I like the idea of the pump to dispense the cream and white tea sounds like it would be very gentle. I’m sure I’ll give it a try soon!

The 5th product is a K-Pak Revitaluxe Treatment by Joico. I had never heard of the brand before but since my hair tends to be on the dry side I’ll definitely use this soon, a moisturizing treatment never hurts.

Did any of you receive the GLOSSYBOX for April? I know there were 10 colors of the Essie polish, which ones did you get?

**the April GLOSSYBOX was given to me free of charge and without any conditions. All of the views expressed above are my personal opinion and were NOT paid for!!

    Cute As A Button ist toll, eine meiner liebsten Sommerfarben :) In meiner Box war Turquoise & Caicos (ebenfalls große Liebe!), nur hatte ich den schon, drum hab ich mit Nina von Berrys & Passion getauscht. Jetzt durfte sich also Mint Candy Apple zu meiner Sammlung gesellen, den ich sowieso schon lange haben wollte!

    DIe österreichische Box ist so viel toller als die deutsche… ich war zwar diesen Monat seit langem wieder mal zufrieden mit meiner Box, aber wenn ich eure Boxen sehe, dann bin ich enttäuscht ;)

      Das ist mir auch schon aufgefallen!! Ich persönlich wäre noch mit keiner der deutschen Boxen zufrieden gewesen :( Bei unserer waren wirklich schon viele gute Produkte (OPI & Essie Lacke, Kiehl’s Lotion, Kerastase Haaröl, Clinique Mascara, …) dabei. Die Dinge nehm ich im Alltag auch wirklich her. Mir kommt vor in Deutschland sinds immer nur so Sachen die man normal bei DM im -50% Korb finden würde oder so … echt schade!

    I use Joico products on my hair and they’re amazing! I especially suffer from dry ends and their products are such good quality and help so much. Love that shade of nail polish.

    All of these things look amazing! Joico is a great brand, I used it when my hair was really damaged and it worked beautifully.

    Find diese box auch super. Hatte “tart deco” essie in meiner. Ist aehnlich wie deiner :)

  7. The Essie Nail Polish has a very beautiful color! I’ve been sporting watermelon for the past few days! And you’re right, they do have a very good and lasting quality!! I feel like they are even better than OPI, even though that is a very known and loved brand as well, I would go for Essie any day over OPI!

    Love these posts! Thank you for sharing =)

    Hi Vicky! I’ve been following your blog for a while now, and it like it very much.
    And by following you, I’ve starting liking Essie products too! I liked the Watermelon shade you showed a while ago, but the one you got form April box is nice, too.
    I’m an Italian girl living and working in China, there are many brands I don’t find here, but I heard Essie products will arrive in Italy soon, hopefully for my next trip back home!
    Greetings from China :)

  11. Ich habe mir für Mai auch eine Glossybox bestellt und bin gespannt, was darin enthalten sein wird. Wenn es wirklich nur eine fade Ausgabe der österreichischen Box ist, werde ich sie umgehend wieder abbestellen. Nichtsdestotrotz bin ich schon ein bisschen aufgeregt!!!
