April I Love This Box

April I Love This Box also arrived last week and once again I was really impressed with what was in it. This has been a consistently impressive beauty box and I have reccommended it to a few friends who have loved it just as much.

Here's what was in this month's box:

Avado Organic Gel Exfoliant
There are so many fantastic new organic brands popping us and I have found these beauty boxes have been a great way of trying a few out. A facial exfoliant is a regular part of my routine so will be adding this one into the mix to see how it goes.

Chikii Mineral Cosmetics Bronzer
This seems like quite an odd way to package a sample of powder bronzer, I'm a little bit scared to open the bag for fear of it making a giant mess! I'm not sure this is a colour I would use as a bronzer as it seems a bit light and too shimmery but might try dipping an eyeshadow brush into it instead and trialling it that way.

Shanga Mineral Eyeshadow in Orchid
This is a pretty little tub containing a matte smokey grey shadow. I think it will look great in the crease for a darker, night time look so will try this next time I head out.

Maybelline Colour Senational Lipcolour in Autumn Rush
Most people seem to have received brown shades of this lipstick which isn't the most wearable of shades. I actually own a few of these already and am in love with the formulation but I would've preferred a more neutral or pink based shade as this is just a little tricky to pull off.

Just D'Lish Hand Made Soap in Passionfruit
I can't get enough of beautiful hand made soaps and candles so will be checking out the rest of the Just D'Lish range pronto! This smells amazing and I may just keep it around to smell it's actually that delicious!

I also swatched the lipstick and eyeshadow so you could see the colour selection I got. They photographed a bit lighter than they actually showed up but at least this gives you a bit of an idea.

Did you get this month's I Love This Box? Were you happy with the products you received?

Hope you are having a beautiful day!
