Glossybox April 2012 : The Natural one

Another themed box from Glossybox this month - i think they have took a step in the right direction making them themed :) Makes it more exciting.

The box itself is 100% Biodegradable and states to be 'bursting with ethical goodies'.

What i received:

1// Caudalie - SOS thirst quenching serum (Full size £29.00 - 9ml sample in the box £8.70ish)
'extremely natural and plant based, ensuring your skin never lacks moisture'
I was happy to recieve this as i have been wanting to try something from this brand for ages!!! Cant wait to give it ago, but if like the other Caudalie products i have heard about it promises great things.

2// Inika cosmetics - Organic eyeliner in Graphite (Full size sample £11.75)
This is actually a really nice shade and is nice and creamy meaning it wont feel like your scratching your eyes out to apply :)

3// Ayuuri - Natural body wash in Coconut (Full size sample 200ml £4.95)
Enriched with wild indian jasmine (to calm the mind and body and balances all skin types), Coconut (moisturising and protective) and Aloe vera (soothing, cooling and calming). 
Its a good size, and its something you can never have enough of &&& its smells lovely, im really loving coconut scents at the moment.

4// Figs & Rouge lip balm - in rambling rose (Full size sample 8ml £3.29)
Its actually a multi use balm and can be used on the lips, face and body. It smells nice and is really mouisturing. It is 100% organic and also petroleum free.

5//  Kai - perfume oil (Full size £41.00, Tiny sample received so unable to work out price)
'Intoxicating blend of gardenia wrapped in white exotics'.
This was the disappointment of the box for me... Don't get me wrong i like trying new perfumes etc and really don't mind receiving them in beauty boxes if A. they are a decent size or B. they are classed as a extra rather than an actual sample product.

This is tiny - the smallest perfume sample i have ever received. And sadly i don't really like the scent, i mean i don't hate it but its not my normal cup of tea. I do like the fact its a oil as it lasts longer, and i do like the packaging and graphics.

All in all im happy with the box this month. The value works out at about £28.69 (excluding the Kai perfume oil tiny sample) which i think is great as glossy boxes themselves retail at only £10 (plus p+p).
