Last month I received and reviewed my first Glossybox in almost a year. It was a good box to welcome me back, as a Glossie.  
The product info card is now a pamphlet with exclusive offers and product details.

April’s Theme is Spring Awakening #GLOSSYspring.

With the promise of warmer weather, we’re welcoming this new season with open arms. This month’s Spring Awakening box entices with sensational fragrances and products that provide that extra pop of color you’ve been craving. We hope you’ll lighten your load and revamp your makeup bag with new, inspiring beauty delights you’ve discovered through GLOSSYBOX.

The packaging is lovely as always.

First look!

COLOURPOP COSMETICS ULTRA MATTE LIPS in Thursday & Airplane Mode - Full Size ($6 US each)
This thin, lightweight formula smoothly glides on the lips leaving intense pigment with a bold, ultra-matte look. It is long-wearing and 100% kiss-proof! 
Two! I love the colours I received and am happy to receive two very different shades! Matte lips are my new favourite thing and I am excited to sport these.

Intensify your lashes with outrageous volume and length! The XL brush fiber bristles glide through the lashes evenly, coating each lash with the velvet carbon black formula that enhances the lashes by adding depth and dimension.
I used this mascara today and it did a fine job on my lashes, but it was nothing to write home about. I love how dark black the formula is and will continue to use it.

Vince Camuto Ciao Eau de Parfum - Deluxe Sample Size ($12.75)
Ciao celebrates the spontaneity and energy of a modern woman’s lifestyle! With notes including Italian Mandarin, rose, jasmine, Indonesian Patchouli and Glowing Amber, this is sure to become your new favorite scent.
Okay, this perfume smells amazing! It must have leaked in transit as it was all over everything… leaving me with a gorgeous, half empty bottle. I’m considering purchasing this fragrance as I actually love it. And a plus, it’s not a small perfume sample size, there’s still enough product to last me a week or two of use.

VASANTI COSMETICS Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator - 0.7 oz ($5.67 US) 
This triple action formula brightens and breaks down dead skin with papaya enzyme, exfoliates with micro-crystals to help smooth your skin’s surface, and cleanses with aloe-enriched cream gel.
I’ve received a Vasanti product from Glossybox in the past, but am happy to receive a new product to try. Exfoliants seem to be a trend lately and I have been using them every few days as the winter months have seemed to seriously dry out my skin. And a plus, papaya enzymes apparently help dissolve dead skin and debris while fading away dark spots.

Glichrist & Soames BeeKind Shower Gel & Body Lotion - (Travel Size, $2.00 US/each)
With a fresh lemon verbena fragrance and extracts of honey and certified organic calendula extracts, our BeeKind Shower Gel and Body Lotion are as soothing as they are Eco-friendly.
I have tried BeeKind products in the past. The lotion smells great as does the shower gel. I will throw them in my travel bag so I have quality products to travel with.

Head & Shoulders NEW 3 Action Formula Smooth & Silky Shampoo & Conditioner - Travel Size ($1.99 US/each) 
The unbelievable truth about Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky NEW 3 Action Formula is that it does give you soft, smooth, healthy and beautiful-looking hair, while also keeping you 100% flake free.

The Shampoo & Conditioner were listed as MYSTERY BONUS items this month. Glossies were supposed to try the products and answer a survey, then the products would be revealed. I just received my box so I missed out on the fun before the product was revealed by Sofia Vergara on the Glossybox website. These actually smell amazing and they’re a nice size for travel...not too tiny, either.

The April Glossybox included eight products, valued at $70 US. It's actually a great box this month, even though the value is lower. I appreciate all the products this month and they will all be put to good use. The product sizes vary, but nothing was too small. Click here to see some of the other products that were available to subscribers in April as each box is only a variation. I’m super happy with this month’s box, no complaints here.
