Glossybox April 2021

I received April’s Glossybox in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

We did a lot of spring cleaning on the weekend and ahhh, it feels good. I mean we’ve still got miles to go but Rome wasn’t built in a day. When I’m organized and I’ve got good systems in place I feel good. And let’s face it — feeling good is the best motivation to keep going. April’s Glossybox is like a spring refresh too. The monthly skincare and cosmetics subscription box typically delivers five deluxe or full-size products. For $21 USD/month you get at least $60 in value (and often more).

If my lipstick cases could tell a story I’m afraid they’d put you to sleep ha ha but I do love the romantic notion that a new tube invites adventures of all kinds. With spring springing I’m thinking pale pink lip glosses for socially distanced picnics in the tulips, apricot tints for planting marigolds around the vegetable beds and cheery coral lippies for lemonade on the porch. In that way you could say the lip beauty subscription Poutbox is like a treasure trove of possibilities, the March one “a collection of fun lip products with lighter textures and in a range of wearable, daytime shades.” Think full-size, cruelty-free lippies and extras, both boutique and brand-name.
