April Glossybox 2016

So it's near the end of April and I am only getting around to this post now! I have been extra busy with exams and being a Mammy. I always get excited when my glossybox comes in the mail. I love the wee treat.

First thing that jumped out at me was the Swiss Smile whitening toothpaste. At first I thought it was a hand lotion because of the packaging. This is a full size product and retails at  £28.95 for 75ml. Yes this is one heck of a price for tooth paste. It says ' The whitening formula works to brighten your teeth, without any danger or damage'. Hmmm, I know already, I will not be spending £28.95 for a toothpaste again so this product will just be sitting at my sink until its nicely used up!

Next we have the Studio 10 brow lift perfecting liner. This seems like a great wee product but for me personally, I like my brow pencils to have a spooly on the end of it. It does have a great universal shade and as you can tell from the swatches in the picture. It goes on nice and smooth and feels creamy. The other end had a highlighting end which can help define the eyebrow. I usually just use concealer for this but it seems handy to have a 2 in 1. This is also a full size product and retails at £22. Pretty exspensive for a eyebrow pencil.

I have been wanting to try this product so bad and this is what I was most excited about in the box. Right now I have enough facial oils in my life so I was holding out on purchasing this. This is The Body Shop Oils of Life facial oil. This is a sample size and the full size is £28.  I love the smell off this. It smells similar to my Khiels nightime repair oil. Which I love. It feels light weight on the skin and absorbs quickly. I LOVE IT already!

Hmm so what can I say. Not to impressed with this. Essence is a very affordable brand and they have amazing products. This retails at £3 and I received a full size product. To be honest this is just a bronzed face powder and isn't that pigmented. I think this could be a very subtle highlighter maybe.

This is the Bandi Hydro Care Intensive Moisturising Cream. This retails at £9.70 and you get 30ml. This is very affordable. Feels very soft on the skin. It gets quite tacky so I think this will be an amazing primer for the skin for makeup application. It smells just ok but feels great on the skin.
