April 2013 | Glamourbox Unboxing & First Impressions

Hi everyone! Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t done my usual Glamourbox unboxing entry yet for the month of April. I just received my April box last Tuesday (April 30) and I know that that is later than the usual schedule. However, according to the Glamourbox team, since they opened their subscription during the first week of April (and I believe they also opened for additional slots during the second week) in honor of the Holy Week, they decided to ship the April boxes a little later than the usual date. Well, the question is.. “Is it worth the wait?” Let’s see..

April 2013 | Glamourbox Unboxing & First Impressions

Pixi Tinted Brilliance Palm Magic Tink Tint - Happy Thoughts Pink
PIXI Tinted Brilliance Palm Magic Tink Tint – Happy Thoughts Pink
Full Size (10 oz) PhP 735

I never really noticed that this lip product was based from a Disney character, I just noticed it when I saw Tinkerbell at the box and of course the Disney logo. I don’t really read info cards while unboxing my monthly boxes. I read the cards after. Anyway, when I first saw what it looks like, straight from the tube, I was a bit worried because I know for sure that this wont show up on my lips. Still, I tried it, then after a couple of minutes, my lips turned into a subtle pink. It gave me an MLBB look. I’ll do a review about this soon.

Full Size (0.2 oz) PhP 740 (Sample Size – 0.1 oz)

Two lip products in one box! Yay! That’s what ran in my mind when I saw this right after the Pixi lip tint. Anyway, I’m currently testing this out and here’s my quick first impression – it doesn’t feel as greasy like most lip balms/butters out there. It’s not as moisturizing compared to my favorite lip balm. I don’t like the idea of putting my finger in and out of the jar just to apply the product onto my lips. But that’s just me. I still like it, it’s very handy. I’ll definitely keep it for travelling or kikay pouch purposes. Also, I’ll keep using it to see how it turns out…

Full Size (140 g) PhP 250

It’s only my first day trying this product. First Day Impressions: I loved how smooth my face was after washing it with the soap, and even after applying my daily rituals (toner, moisturizer, etc). My face is so soft & smooth right after using. I know I don’t have fairly noticeable spots, but when touched, you can feel some post-blemishes & dry patches in some areas, and with this soap I didn’t get to feel that. Visually, however, I haven’t seen any noticeable differences yet. I definitely find this product interesting and will wait it out and see what happens after continuously using it.

DROPLETS OF NATURE Beauty and Bright Anti-Aging Serum Bar

Full Size (130 g) PhP 94

Haven’t used it yet so I can’t give you guys a quick first impressions. However, I’m happy to see this product included since I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about it. I can’t wait to use it and once I have something to say about it, I’ll let you guys know through an update

HOLLYWOOD STYLE Light Summer Lotion

Full Size (275 ml) PhP 195

I’m in love with the smell of this one and I tried it on yesterday and it doesn’t feel oily at all. Proof that it’s 100% oil free, lol. But seriously, it doesn’t feel greasy an it smells oh so good and my skin just feels crazy smooth after application. (well most lotion gives me that effect after applying it, but we’ll see what’s so special about this one, k?)

REGATTA Leisure For Men & Women

Full Size (50 ml) PhP 395

Again, not really a fan of perfume samples. But we’ll see

So those are all of the items that I got for my April Box. April’s Glamourbox theme is “Going Green” or “Green Beauty” rather is what they call it. I think it’s quite fitting because Earth Day falls on the month of April. Also, most if not all of the beauty products that were included in this box have natural ingredients so I think that makes all of the products worth checking out.

For me, I love this box, I love all of the items that came from this month’s box. I think it’s well thought-off and this month’s box is a good combo of skin and beauty products so I’m really loving that. Plus I got a lip product (PIXI Tinted Brilliance Palm Magic Tink Tint – Happy Thoughts Pink) which is well over the PhP595 that I pay monthly. Also, the sample sizes that came with it contains a good amount of product, which means that you’ll be able to try it out without feeling like it’s ‘bitin’. This box is definitely worth the PhP595/mo and I can’t wait to receive their future boxes.

    Glamour Box is not for me .more on skin care talaga sila, e ayoko ng ganun kasi natatakot ako magbreak out sa soap (I tend to break out a lot in my facial soap(s), while pag cosmetics naman never ko pa na experience mag break out ) Pero super love their theme for this month “Green Beauty” eco-products are loove :3

  • Love everything! From the lip products to the soap. Sobrang lip product and soap junkie ako e! I try every product I see! Pero I doubt about this ang mahal nung magic tint!! Haha! Yung MYR & RYVI madami variants soaps nila gusto ko itry lahat!
