I Love This Box - April

Oh my gosh.  This months 'ILoveThisBox' is beautiful!  Loving that cute Easter themed packaging.  I also recieved two small Easter egss with mine this month - Red Tulip chockies - yummo!!

So, the first item to catch my eye was, of course, the largest.  Its the 'Avado' Sensitives Organic Gel Exfoliant.  This product contains a heap of natural oils and some avocado oil.  It smells amazing.  The combination of the oils is refreshing and not overpowering at all.  This retails for $14.99 and is a full sized product.

Next, the Chikii Natural Salon Quality Mineral Cosmetcs - "Embrace" Mineral Blush.  Also a full sized product (glad I have a couple of 10g makeup jars sitting around so I can depot!).  Retails for $40.00 (omg!).  This blush is super pigmented and, super cute!  Its a lovely dusty/pinky/mauve colour (if that makes any sense at all!) and has glitter in it too.   I'm not normally a fan of glitter, but I will give this a go.  It could maybe be used as an eyeshadow too.  Being a mineral product, it shouldn't be a prob!

Shanga - Mineral Eyehsadow.  I recieved the colour 'Orchid'.  Its a lovely dark mushroom colour, slightly hard to describe, but extremely wearable.  The claim is that its infused with 'anti-aging' minerals - but honestly, I don't think I'd use it as often as required to see any kind of result!  Beautiful in the crease or as an 'all-over, by-itself' product.  Its another full sized product and retails for $24.95

The Maybelline - Colour Sensational Lipcolour.  The colour I received is #645 Red Revival and all I can say is WOW!!!  I would call it a Cherry Red.  I have never in my life worn a red lipcolour.  My husband encouraged me to try this on and I was pleasantly surprised.  I think if I were to go out or want to do a 'pin-up' look, this would be the colour for it!  Its incredibly creamy.  This lipstick glides on your lips like a lipbalm, its that smooth.  Maybe I should wear it around a bit to get used to the colour??
This lipcolour retails for $16.95

Last but, certainly not least, is the Just D'Lish - Gift Wrap Soap.  Mine is Sage & Pomegranate.  The packaging on this soap is super adorable.  A lovely green textured paper that looks handmade also, and a slip with the product details on it.  It contains various oils and also Shea Nut.  I'm keen to try this one out when I relax in a bath next! 

 So.  This months Box has impressed me as much as they all have.  From the cute packaging, to the amazing products - its money well spent.  For my $14.95 subscripton this month, I have recieved $101.89 worth of beautiful, sparkly, aromatic, creamy, pigmeted gifts!  Thank you ILoveThisBox!!!!  Looking forward to next month, and the month after that, and the month after that... !!

PS!!!  I forgot to mention the dividers that came with this months box aswell!  In the spirit of being a mainly organic, 'getting back to nature' theme, this months box also comes with cardboard strips to turn your box into a jewellery box, makeup organiser etc.  Very clever if you ask me.  I have used a couple of the lids from previous boxes to corral eyeliner pencils and other tubular type items together in my makeup storage drawers, so I can see the benefit of being able to re-use these wonderfully strong little boxes! 

That is all.  ;o)


  1. Embrace the red!! I used to be quite timid in my lipcolours and when i started wearing reds I got a few questions from my colleagues about what was different! Now i don't like leaving home without it, and that shade looks lovely x

  2. good idea using the lid of previous boxes..

    1. Thanks. It does help to keep similar items together. Thanks for reading!!
