April Glamourbox Unboxing

Hello Pinay Beauties! I know it's May already but I still wanted to share with you my April Glamourbox Unboxing post.

I decided to give in and try Glamourbox because I got really curious about it and I saw lots of good reviews as well. I was one of the lucky few who were able to get an April box when they reopened their subscription on the 2nd week of April.

According to their website, boxes are to be shipped during last week of April. Before I left out of town, I decided to send them a message to follow up regarding my April box, Here is their reply:

I got their point so I decided to just wait for it. I got it last Tuesday, April 30, and I think this box is worth the wait.

This month's theme is Green Beauty, featuring earth friendly products to try out.

Here are the contents of the box:

PIXI Tinted Brilliance Balm Magic Tink Tint in Happy Thoughts Pink (Full Size)
10 oz - ₱735

This is something that immediately caught my eye, since the print of the box is colorful, it's pink and it's a lip product! It is definitely moisturizing. It looks like a typical balm at first, but after a couple of minutes you will definitely see the change in color, making your lips more pink. I was surprised by how much this thing costs, for me it is too expensive for a lipbalm/tint.

MOX Botanicals Lip Butter in Coconut Almondine (Sample Size 0.1 oz)
Full Size 0.2 oz - ₱740

I think this product is really good. It really makes your lips as smooth and as soft as a butter. What I don't like about it is the smell. I think this is very handy and can easily fit in your pocket so you can bring this wherever you go.

Mir & Ryvi Banana Soap Spot Lightening Beauty Bar (Sample Size)
Full Size 140 g -  ₱250

This is the second time that I encountered a Mir & Ryvi soap. The first one is a tomato soap which I received from my March SaladBox. This one smells better than the tomato soap, but I will not use it so I gave it away.

Mir & Ryvi Soap Flakes (Sample Size 150 g)
Full Size 250 g - ₱450

Oh how I love the scent of this! Smells really nice. At first glance it looks like shredded cheese, but the smell of this is amazing. It is also feels soft on the skin. I wish I have a bath tub so I could fully enjoy this. Regardless, I am still keeping it.

Hollywood Style Light Summer Lotion (Full Size)
Full Size 275 ml - ₱195

Another lotion sample, but I think this is perfect to use this season, not because it has the word "Summer" in it, but because it is 100% Oil Free. It smells like cucumbers and it feels very light on the skin, yet it is still moisturizing and has UVA/UVB protection.

Bonus Items: Regatta Leisure for Men and Women (Sample Size)
Full Size 50 ml - ₱395

Perfume samples are something that I look forward to in these boxes, and these 2 did not disappointed. I love the EDT for Men since it smells musky and citrus-y at the same time. I am not a fan of the EDT for Women, it has this powdery scent to it which is not a huge hit for me.

Overall, I love all the products included in this month's box. I think the ₱595 subscription fee is worth it. I have not yet subscribed to the May box since the subscriptions are not open yet. I also messaged Glamourbox to ask if they are still going to open their monthly recurring plan. I have not yet to receive any reply from them but I will update you guys.

UPDATE: I just got a reply from the Glamourbox team. They said there will be no May box and subscription for the June box will open on May 15.

Thank you so much for reading and watch out for my favorites for the month of April! Stay pretty Pinay Beauties and goodluck!

    A little bit disappointed with the April box. Well, relatively, looking back at the March box. But it's still quite a good batch of products. It's just that not those that I expected :-) I love the PIXI lip balm, though.
