My April 2013 Rubybox

Sooooo, I am late with the review of my April Rubybox.  I promised myself it would definitely be posted in April, but that ship has sailed.  The fact that my camera cable (that I need to move photos from my camera to my computer) has been missing for a few weeks definitely contributed to the delayed review.  Here is my very late review of the April Rubybox. 

I received the following in the April Rubybox.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush

I do not really use dry shampoos en received one long ago in a Rubybox.  It was from Lee Stafford and although I loved other Lee Stafford products I did not like the dry shampoo.  I am therefore keen to find out whether I do not like dry shampoos in general or whether I did not like that one specific dry shampoo.  I have not tried it yet, but Batiste, you will now determine whether I ever again buy a dry shampoo (no pressure !).  I was thus quite glad to get this in the box.  The card claims it is a full size product, but it is really very small. 

Lamelle Correctives Recharge CE complex

This product improves skin firmness, fine lines and discoloration; thus in short an anti-aging product.  I am keen to try this.  It is a small 2.5 ml sample.

Beauty Factory C Originals Hand and Nail Cream

I am out of hand cream, this came at a great time.  I am keen to try it.  It is a 10 ml sample.

NYX single eyeshadow
A full size single colour eye shadow.  It is a lovely brown colour; between brown and olive green.  I have been using it almost daily since I received it and liked it.  The application is perfect and it provides good colour and lasts well.  My only complaint might be that it is a single colour, I do better with palettes.

Primeve Plus

Evening primrose supplement for PMS and menopause; 5 capsules.

B-Cal Ultra
Multivitamin and mineral supplement w, also 5 capsules
Although I know that multipvitamins are important for the health of your hair and skin and therefore influence how you look, I am not sure how receiving 5 capsules helps you to decide whether a product is worth buying.  I have popped the capsules, and my only comment would be that they are really, really big to swallow.  I do not know whether I am more healthy after using these capsules.  So a bit of a duh review wise.
My summary:  I miss the perfume.   Please, please Rubybox, put a perfume in every single box.  Please.  Other than that I liked the box – I like the eye shadow and would use everything else in the box. 

The advantage to taking so long with my review is that there are plenty of other reviews I can link to.  You can find other reviews of this Rubybox  here, here, here, and here.  All these boxes looked different from mine.
