Glossybox April Edition - Fruity or Floral?

To celebrate the arrival of Spring, this month Glossybox has curated quite the vibrant Fruity or Floral editions, of which you will receive one or the other.  Each box will be fruit-inspired or blooming with the florals.  Inside each box are five products to fit with the theme of your box, plus an extra treat.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you might have seen which box I was kindly sent and having seen no sneak previews as to what is inside, I couldn't wait to see what was waiting for me.  

The first item out of my box is 'Let Your Dreams Blossom' Eau de Parfum by Jeanne Arthes and the theme of the bottle matches that of my box. Jeanne Arthes is part of the Arthes Group, a French perfume company based in Grasse which was founded in 1978.

The fragrance itself holds notes of rose petal, Cedarwood alongside the more delicate notes of Lily, Freesia and amber and together they create quite the floral fragrance and one that most definitely works for Spring.

The second product out of my box is from Soaper Duper and it is Fruity Green Tuberose Body Butter.   I was introduced to Soaper Duper back in 2016 (review here).  Formulated using 97% naturally derived ingredients which include moisturising Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter as well as nourishing Baobab and Macadamia Oils which come together to work with antioxidant vitamin E, and skin-softening pineapple and passionfruit.

What I love about this body butter is just how quickly they melt onto the skin. One bore I find with using a body butter is having to spend ages massaging them into the skin, so quite a lot of the time I get bored quite easily, not with Soaper Duper, this one smells incredible, it leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and there is literally nothing I dislike about it.

Next, I have the Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask from Dr. Botanicals and again, Glossybox clearly has been listening to what I love because I do love lazy skincare.  
Glossybox April Edition Dr Botanicals
Described as being something to help you sleep your way to an energised and refreshed complexion, this mask is infused with pomegranate extract which is not only moisturising but also high in antioxidants.  All natural and vegan, the formula nourishes and hydrates your skin and it also smells absolutely incredible too.

Next up is the Hydrating Water Infusions Raspberry and Rose Shower Gel from Original Source.  It has been a long time since I have used anything from Original Source admittedly, so I am quite keen to give this a try.

In keeping with the theme of the box, this shower gel is infused with fruits and flowers which in this case happen to be Rose Flower Water and Raspberry Fruit Extract. It also contains 3 moisturisers as well as a vitamin and antioxidant blend.   The formula is also paraben free and Vegan.

The final item is from Dr Paw Paw and it is the Hot Pink Balm.  Formulated using the moisturising properties of the pawpaw fruit, this balm is a newly launched take on the original product that most of us have now come across and used.

With a hot pink tint, this balm nourishes and hydrates the lips using Olive Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil and also adds a hint of colour too, you can also use it on your cheeks for a pop of colour if the mood suits.

This box also had what Glossybox call a treat, which is an extra product and in this case, it was a Natural Fusions Chia Seed and Argan Oil Hair Mask from Palmers

I absolutely love hair masks and I try to ensure I do one at least once a week if I heat style my hair or twice a month if I am not using my straighteners. Described as being intensive and deeply conditioning, this mask nourishes dry and damaged locks. Formulated with Argan Oil which helps with hydration and rejuvenation of the hair, Chia Seeds which help to protect your hair, this mask should be used on clean, wet hair and left to work its magic for around 15 minutes.  I am really looking forward to giving this one a try.

Again for me, this is another great themed box and I love that the contents match the theme. As always you can subscribe to Glossybox right here and if you use the code BQUEEN20 you can get yourself 20% off that first box!
