It’s been a long time since my last Glossybox unboxing. I think my last one was in 2014, if I remember correctly. There are so many new beauty boxes and subscription boxes on the market these days that it is hard to decide for a favorite one. Glossybox was probably the first beauty subscription box, at least to my knowledge. I remember how excited I was when I received my first bundle of surprises back then. I’m also happy that I can share their latest box, the Glossybox April 2017, with you today, which was provided to me for reviewing purpose.
Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription box containing a selection of 5 beauty and wellness products packed in a box and delivered to your doorstep. The box was founded in 2011 and has spread in over 10 countries all over the world.
The topic of the German Glossybox April 2017 was “Frühlingserwachen” (engl: spring awakening) and the products selected for the box are revolving around the first warm sun shine and colorful flowers.
My box contained 6 different product, although I only expected 5. This was a nice surprise! The products were well-balanced between, skincare, bodycare, and make-up and below you can see the content of the box. Unlike with the past boxes there is no product description card any longer, but a small magazine, containing descriptions for all the possible products that were included in the April boxes. Apart from the product information the magazine also includes a recipe and a preview for the next box.
Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gel
Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gel is probably one of the highlights of the box. The small and colorful bottles of the hand cleansing gel/ hand sanitizer fit into a small hand bag and are perfect for taking them along with you. For the application you apply a drop of the gel into your palms and rub it into the skin. The blue pearls inside the gel provide moisture and prevent the drying of the skin. There are seven different versions available: Chérie Cherry, New Wave, Flower Power, Oh my Lemon, Lollipop, Coco Rico, and Black Vanilla. I received Black Vanilla in my box, which would not have been my first choice, but the scent reminds me of vanilla candy and is not too overpowering. By the way, the size and the blue pearls inside remind me of the hand sanitizer of Nature Republic, which I love!

La Roche-Posay Micellar Cleansing Water Ultra
La Roche-Posay Micellar Cleansing Water Ultra is my personal highlight of the Glossybox, although it only comes in a 100 ml travel-size. I’m using cleansing water very frequently and if you have dry skin it is one of the better ways to prevent your skin from drying out and still cleansing it effectively. The cleansing water from La Roche-Posay removes make-up and eye-make-up and also soothes the skin by using thermal water. When using cleansing water you do not need to wash your face afterwards, which makes it a great companion for camping and outdoor vacation. Personally, when I’m using cleansing waters at home, I still use water afterwards.

n.6 Beauty Experience Colour Studio Super Gloss
n.6 Beauty Experience Colour Studio Super Gloss is a long-lasting and moisturizing gloss with a soft texture and five different available vibrant colours. It has an applicator made from natural hair and is supposed to last up to 6 hours. I’m not the type that wears lip gloss a lot, so I didn’t try this product yet, but the vibrant orange colour (shade 2 “Techno Orange”) that was included in my box looks like a nice colour for spring.

Betty Barclay Fragrances Pure Pastel Mint Cream Shower
Betty Barclay fragrances Pure Pastel Mint Cream Shower makes your skin soft and refreshes with a floral fruity scent. It moisturizes the skin and keeps it silky soft. The product included was a 75 ml travel-sized tube. I’m looking forward to take this with me on my next short vacation.

Kneipp Pampering Cream Oil Peeling
The 6th product that was added as an extra was the Cream-Oil Peeling from Kneipp. I’ve wanted to try this peeling since they released it in winter, but I always forgot to bring one sachet from the drug store along with me. Perfect thing that this was included in my Glossyboy now. I’m looking forward to try this one soon. This vegan sugar-based peeling removes dead skin cells and moisturizes and nourishes the skin in the same time. It is free from preservatives, paraffins, silicone and mineral oils and free from animal testing, too.

How do you like the content of the Glossybox for April 2017? There are some products which I’m really excited to try, like the cleansing water, the hand sanitizer, and the peeling. The other product from my box were okay, but nothing that I would have bought on my own. The total value of the products lies around 56 € which is far more than the prize you pay for a box. Considering the value this box was amazing, especially if you are new into skincare/beauty products and in need of the products shown here. For me personally, the primer and the gloss, which make the most value of the box are nothing that need necessarily at the moment. There were other variations of the products for the April box which would have been more suiting for me personally, but since it is a surprise box, you never know what’s inside. That’s part of the surprise after all.
Glossybox is available as flexible subscription for 15 € per month. There are also other subscription options available, like a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription for 14,50 €, 13,50 €, or 12,50 € per month, respectively. Check out www.glossybox.de for more information.
