April Glossybox + Promo Code


I know what you are is almost June. How come I am just now reviewing the April Glossybox? Well, my April box didn't arrive until mid-May. I think this is because they send out their subscribers boxes first and then they send out the boxes to reviewers. I am perfectly okay with this. As a matter of fact: I think it is awesome! I have also been a little under the weather and took two weeks to try out the products. Here is what I received in my April box: 

*Aqua Spa relax Body Creme (Lavender + Chamomile) ($8 for 9oz, received 2oz = $2.25): This is a brand that is sold at Walmart. There was also a coupon for Aqua Spa in the box which I thought was a nice touch. I like this body creme. It is really thick and moisturizing. I do wish the scent was a little less potent. It is super strong and I don't care for the fragrance. Luckily the smell fades as you wear it. I would definitely buy this is a different scent.
*LASplash Splashproof Sealer Eyeshadow Sealer/Base ($8.98 for full size. The website for the company does not say how big the full size is. I received a 0.3oz size which I think is 1/2 - 3/4 full size. I'm estimating value at $4.50): I was curious to try this product since I mostly buy Urban Decay eyeshadow primer. Unfortunately, this stuff is awful. It went on thin and watery. When I tried to rub it into my eye to dry it so I could apply eyeshadow, it felt like jelly. Weird. I'm not sure if I received a bad one, but I wouldn't try this product again. 

*Bellapierre Cosmetics Super Lip Gloss in Vanilla Pink (FULL SIZE $24.50): I am completely in love with this lip gloss. It makes my lips feel so incredibly soft and moisturized. The best part though is that it tastes amazing. It is supposed to be vanilla, but it almost tastes like it has a hint of cinnamon in it too. I have been using this stuff like crazy and I will definitely be adding it to my wish/ gift list.

*Ciate London Paint Pot Nail polish in Skinny Dip (FULL SIZE $15): I LOVE this also! This nail polish color is gorgeous and perfect for spring. The pictures really do not do the color justice. It is a bright orange with tiny light-catching glitter in orange and gold.

*Caldrea Body Wash in No. 2 Tea Olive Lime ($18 for 11.5oz, I received 1oz = $1.57): I'm not going to lie, this sample is almost gone. I have been using it a little here and there and trying to make it last longer. It smells amazing and I like how soft it makes my skin feel. The body wash also gets a nice lather. I definitely like this, I just wish it was cheaper so I could buy more.

Total Value of April Glossybox: $45.57 (with LASplash value estimated) 

Glossybox cost $21 a month (or less if you buy multiple months!), so this is a great deal! My favorite product (the Bellapierre lip gloss) was worth more than the cost of the box. Awesome.

Haha I hated that color polish! It was my first glossy box (I used a code you posted so I could get the beauty blender).
