glossybox [april]...

after what felt like forever, i received my first glossybox. it took a little longer than i wanted to get my hands on it, since i had it delivered to my parents and i had to wait until my mom was coming to bring it to me. but, i got it, i opened it, and i was generally pleased, i would say.

 pretty box holding the goods, which can definitely be reused at christmas ;)
 it's like an early birthday gift.
elizabeth grant skin care shower gel, aveeno daily moisturizer, wella brilliance conditioner, wella brilliance treatment, and marcelle xtension plus mascara.

elizabeth grant shower gel-  smells like coconut (ie amazing) and is priced at $20 for the 240ml bottle. i've yet to use it, so i can't say much about it. except for the smell again, so good!
aveeno positively radiant daily moisturizer- this product was perfect because just as i got the box, i was finishing my regular moisturizer, so i started using it right away. it's got an spf 15, which is nice, and i must say, i'm a fan of this. it smells so nice and soft and leaves my face feeling amazing. at $22.99 for the 120ml bottle, though, i certainly won't be buying it on my own once this runs out!
wella brilliance conditioner and treatment- i haven't used these yet, but i'm almost out of my conditioner and i'll give it a try soon! the conditioner is priced at $13.99 for 250ml and the treatment at $13.99 for 150ml.
marcelle xtension plus mascara- i've been using this about a week now and i like it. i'm a tough critic with mascara, and this passes my test. it does make them longer and makes them a bit thicker, too. at $12.50, it's a bit more than what i normally buy (maybelline the colossal volum' express, for about $8), but if i were to find this on sale somewhere, i would definitely pick it up.

overall, i was happy with what i got, and it was well over the $15 i paid. that being said, after i get my second one, i'm pretty sure i'm going to cancel. i really just don't need new products every month, and we really need to be saving all we can to furnish a new place ;)

The mascara from this month's glossybox is great! But the coconut scented body wash is my favourite. Perfect for summer!
