Birchbox July First Impressions

Hello beauties! So this month’s Birchbox surprised me a bit! It came in a red envelope. I thought to myself “did I forgot I ordered something!” and to my surprise it was my Birchbox! Minus the box… So a Birchbag!

image

This month’s goodies came in a splash proof clutch which is ideal to take with you on holiday poolside to keep all your essentials safe and dry! So lets get on to what was inside the Birchbag!

Cowshed Cow Pat Hand Cream

image

Restore softness to neglected hands with our moisturising hand cream.
Our Cow Pat Hand Cream restores softness to the hands with the finest quality Shea and Cocoa Butters to deeply moisturise and tone the skin. Refreshingly scented and quickly absorbed,  Grapefruit Oil tones whilst Coriander Oil kick starts your circulation.

I love it whenever I get sent cowshed products! This moisturiser is so nice. It soaks into your skin so quickly which is amazing, and it smells pretty good too! The cream is quite thick which is nice, which helps with the drying time. I hate it when creams are thick because I hate waiting around for them to dry. It’s a pretty good 50ml sample size too! I though it was full size until I checked out and the actual full size is 30ml which retails at £18! Seems like alot (size wise not price!) .. But it’s that good I’d probably get through it quickly!

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum

image

This calming, anti-blemish treatment contains soothing Roman chamomile, anti-bacterial may chang, calming lavender and eucalyptus in a light, non-greasy petroleum free gel. This instant treatment benefits from super soothing and cooling organic aloe vera and spruce knot to calm redness as soon as a blemish begins to show and kanuka essential oil to eliminate congestion with its gentle but powerful anti-microbial properties. Apply all over the face or directly onto a blemish to prevent and treat problem areas without drying the skin.

I’ve received quite a few Balance Me products while having these beauty boxes, and to be honest I’ve never really been blown away by anything, but this is something I haven’t tried, where as I’ve had quite a few of their eye creams which I was getting bored of! I love anything with Aloe Vera, it’s so good for your skin. The cream is very thin as you would expect a serum to be! It smells amazing. It’s packed with Chamomile, Lavender and Aloe Vera, no wonder it smells gorgeous! This is a 7ml sample size. Full size is 15ml worth £16.

Unani Aloe Vera Gel

image

We’re sticklers about wearing sunscreen – but that doesn’t mean we don’t end up with a sunburn from time to time. That’s when we turn to this ultra-hydrating lotion, packed with pure aloe vera to soothe and calm our skin. It’s naturally healing properties, and non-irritating formula, means that our sunburned skin can feel better and recover soon – plus, it’s great for other sore spots (like blemishes, eczema, and bites) as well!

I needed this last week! I burnt my next while doing some gardening. I’m usually very good with sun cream, cause I’m so pale my catch the sun so quickly, I douce myself in factor 50. But I completely forgot about my neck. This would of been amazing. But hopefully we will get more sun and I’ll be able to use this.. But at the same don’t I don’t really want to get burnt.. But Aloe Vera is great for break outs too if we don’t get any more sun! It’s a clear gel which actually doesn’t smell that much of Aloe Vera! Unless it’s just my nose, I never had the best sense of smell! This is a 30ml sample size. Not sure what the full size is, but it’s £15!

POP Beauty Eyeshadow Trio in Peach Parfait

image

image

Master your summer smokey eyes with this nifty palette. Blend all three silky shades for a perfectly pretty look or apply just your favourite for a subtle wash if colour.

I’m pretty sure this is an American brand, which annoys me because if I really like it, I can’t get any more! Without paying stupid postage obviously… But for now I’m pretty happy with this little palette. It’s nude shades which is totally me. This will definitely get some use and I’m bored of my current palettes!

Benefit Cosmetics Dream Screen

image

You can’t feel it, you can’t see it…but it’s got you totally covered. Dream screen broad spectrum SPF 45 silky-matte sunscreen is ultra lightweight and truly invisible on skin. It absorbs instantly to help prevent skin from aging by protecting against sun damage…and leaves skin feeling moisturised. Dream screen puts all other sunscreens in the shade! Oil-free. Fragrance free.

This is great for me because I need sun screen for my face because my nose burns so quickly! SPF 45 is brilliant too. I was actually looking the other day for face sun screens because I don’t actually have one…i usually just put normal stuff on which isn’t great when some are so greasy! So this is perfect for me to try out! This is a 6ml sample. Full size is 45ml worth £25.

Bonus Beauty Extra!

Barely Prep, Blot & Blend Sponge

image

Modernising make-up application is the ambition of new beauty brand Barely. And they’ve achieved it with their revolutionary range of sponges for everything from moisturiser to eye make-up. Barely, Prep, Blot & Blend Sponge is latex free, non-allergenic and odour free making it ideal for sensitive skin. Use Barely Prep, Blot & Blend Sponge to prepare skin before make-up to apply make-up remover, skincare and primer. The ovoid sponge has no edges in order to allow for products to be stippled on, leaving no lines or streaks. The pointed end can be used to apply concealer and to reach the nooks of the face such as the corners of the nose and inner corners of the eyes.

I haven’t had a sponge since my Beauty Blender was rendered useless (RIP beauty blender!) so I’m excited to try this out. I’ve actually never heard of Barley so this is a new brand I can look into. This is a full sized sponge worth £6

I’m quite happy with this lot to be honest. I’ll get use out of everything which is why we use these subscriptions! A few if the products are things I either actually need or was thinking about getting anymore, which is amazing? Are Birchbox spying on me? One thing though I wouldn’t of minded is maybe a bit more range if products, but that’s just me trying to pick faults! This is just due to most of my products being skincare. I’m so happy with this bag this week!

Birchbox June First Impressions

Hello beauties! I hope you are all well. I’ve been spending alot of time in the garden lately trying to strip some Street that my neighbour has took down. My garden is full of fallen trees! Such a nightmare. I’m constantly aching all over. Don’t even hurt this much when I go to the gym! But that’s enoug about me..

image

It’s officially the start of summer! This theme is all about ‘Stepping Outside’  for the great British summer. Summer is all about garden parties, BBQs, picnics and festivals! So lets get onto what I received…

English Laundry No 7 For Her

image

Long known for his line of men’s scents, Christopher Wick of English Laundry tweaked his No. 7 blend just for the ladies. Bright and fruity, the result is both flirty and fun, grounded with alluring hints of masculine musk.

I’m not much of a fan of perfume samples. They kinda just get chucked into a draw and never seen again. I always say I’m gonna put them in my bag to use in the day, but I never do! This is a very strong bold musky smell which I wouldn’t usually pick for myself to be honest.

Yes To Cucumbers Facial Wipes

image

Packed with green superfoods they naturally exfoliate, detoxify, and rejuvenate all-in-one. Stay gorgeous, and go from zero to clean in seconds. Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Soothing Facial wipes gently remove dirt, sweat and makeup (eye makeup too!) without the need to rinse.

More facial Wipes! I got some in the latest Glossybox too. Typical festival time item to have in these beauty boxes always going to be handy. This is a sample pack of 10. A full 30 pack is just £3.99

Cowshed Body Lotion Knackered Cow

image

When you’re burnt out, struggling to concentrate and longing for that extra hour in bed, fast-track to relaxation using our Knackered Cow range. Featuring a herbaceous blend of Lavender to calm and Eucalyptus to clarify and uplift, our Body Lotion also uses the finest quality Shea and Cocoa Butters to moisturise and tone the skin.

This is my favourite item by far. I love Cowshed. This is exactly what I need I’m defiantly knackered from all this gardening lately! And I haven’t even made a dent! I’m gonna enjoy using this is it does relax me. This is a very creamy fast absorbing cream and i can’t wait to try it! This is a decent 100ml sample bottle. Full size is 300ml worth £20

Beauty Protector Protect & Oil

image

So many beauty products focus on making your look good, but don’t protect from damage. Enter Beauty Protector, whose range consists of super caring must-haves that really protect! This lightweight sweetly scented hair oil shields against UV rays and heat damage. Even better, hair never feels heavy or stiff after using it and it works on all hair types.

I’m always happy to see anything I can use on my hair which will make it look and feel healthier. I’m obsessed with oils so this was a great product for me to get. Although it’s only two small bottles of oil, the full size 118ml bottle is only £16 so if I like it it won’t break the bank!

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss In Angel Kiss

image

NEW Mirenesse Glossy Kiss  is a 3 in 1 colour created with BB Mineral Technology  Glossy Kiss takes Lip Colour to a new level, delivering a high dose of colour and shine in just one swipe; with the precision of a liner, the moisture of a balm, the shine of a gloss and the staying power of a stain all-in-one!

The description of this lipstick certainly is exciting and I hope it is true to its word, because if it is it’s gonna be amazing! It’s a lovely brown which is great because I’m trying to stay away from reds and I have too many! Great for everyday wear. This is a 1.5g sample size which is still a decent sample size! Only half the full size which is 3g for £17.50

STYLondon Temporary Metallic Tattoos Beauty Bonus

image

There’s quite a bit of overlap between the times we’d like to rock some extra sparkle and the times we’re most likely to damage a necklace or lose an earring back: at a music festival, during an all-night party, or enjoying some sun on that tropical vacation. These metallic temporary tattoos let us add some extra shine to our look – without the risk of losing an heirloom on the dance floor or tarnishing our favourite necklace at the pool.

I dunno what it is about temporary tattoos, but they seem to be everywhere lately, which I hate! They are just so tacky! But at least they are an beauty bonus in Birchbox and not one of the products you get like my last Glossybox! How cheap… These won’t be used.. I also got a shoe bag which I totally forgot to photograph. But it’s pretty much just a bag you put your shoes in so I didn’t think you were gonna be missing anything..

I’m really happy with this box. I’ll use 4 out of 5 products definitely, and I might get around to using the 1 which is the perfume sample at some point. So glad the fake tattoos were an added bonus in this box. I think that’s what gives Birchbox the edge this month. And at least theirs was a brand name and not what Glossybox knocked out! These is an awesome mix of products in this box from make up, hair, skincare and perfume. I dislike it when most the items are in the same category.. Makes it harder to get through all these samples!

Glossybox June First Impressions

Hello beauties! I hope your all good. I’ve just got over the worst cold of my life. Colds in the summer are the worst.. But now I can breath and sleep properly so all is good! Back to blogging!

image

This month’s Glossybox is about festival season and upcoming holidays. This box includes must haves to take with you! It’s even got 3 full sized product to last us all summer. Sounds great so far!

MONU Spa Rosewood Reviving Mist

image

The perfect pick-me-up for dull days and stressed skin, to leave you feeling calm, comforted and in control. Created using a blend of zesty essential oils. A blend of zesty essential oils from Lemon and Rosewood.

I love MONU Spa product so I was really happy to receive more from them. It smells gorgeous and will be great for those warm summer days when you need a cool down. Perfect size to keep in your handbag too! This is a 50ml sample size. Full size is 100ml worth £11.95

Glossybox Flash Tattoos

image

We’re always working to ensure our glossies are a step ahead when it comes to trends, so we’ve designed these exclusive faux tattoos. Make like the A-Listers and wear them stacked around your wrist with a few bangles, or apple them somewhere different such as above the ankle.

To be honest I think these are a bit naff and something I would of worn as a child! Probably end up in the bin!

Halo Fragrances Free Facial Wipes

image

Fragrance Free Facial Wipes are formulated to gently cleanse your skin removing any make-up, including waterproof mascara. Suitable for sensitive skin, with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to help leave your skin feeling cleansed and moisturised.

I’ve used Halo Wipes before. Mostly when I go to festivals because they do ones specially for your body which is always handy when your not gonna shower for a while! These will come in handy when I run out of face wipes. This is a full sized 10 wipe pack worth £1.20

Kueshi Anticellulite Booster

image

The combination of natural ingredients work together to help to stimulate the bloods circulation which in turn protect and reinforce the linings of our veins. The added antioxidant agents also fights against the signs of ageing.

I’m always up for trying out product that will help me tone and reduce cellulite. No one wants cellulite! Although I am always quite sceptical about products like this, as long as you combine it with the gym you might see results. It soaks into your skin really quickly which is great as I hate waiting around for creams to dry! This is a full sized 150ml tube worth £14.55

Essence The Gel Nail Polish

image

Meet our latest nail obsession. This innovative nail polish has a long lasting get formula, for an amazing shiny manicure that endures all week.

I actually have some essence nail polish in my collection I haven’t tried out yet. You can find it in Wilkinsons in the UK and I stumbled across it and brought a few products! It’s a German brand, I now this because I got some of their products in my beauty swap with Reify who is from Germany! The shade I received is called Ever Young which is a very girly warm pink. Not a colour I would of picked for myself, but I’ll still probably wear it! This is a full sized 8ml bottle worth £1.71

So I’m pretty pleased with this box! Except for the faux tattoos of course! I wouldn’t of minded if it was an added extra obviously, but as one of my 5 I’m not too pleased. Regardless, my box is worth around £30 which is great.

Glossybox May First Impressions

Hello beauties! I realise I’m a bit late with this one.. But better late then never!

image

This month’s box is about festive chic,so they’ve boxed all the essentials you need to prep for the balmy days ahead.

MeMeMe Enhanced Eyes Dual Ended Eye Wand

image

Introducing MeMeMe’s NEW, catwalk and trend-inspired dual ended eye cream wand. Designed with a two toned colour feature comprising of two complimenting shades for an effortless, quick and high impact application. It’s never been easier to create multi-tonal looks, in an instant.

I’m not one to experiment with coloured eyeshadow, but blue is a colour I have used before. I love that it is two toned so you can be creative with it.

image

The shade is called midnight storm. This is how the colours look. It’s very creamy so it’s easily blended. I’m looking forward to trying this out! This is a full sized pencil worth £6.95

Etre Belle Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel

image

Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturising Gel comes with Liposomes. Especially smoothing moisturizing gel free of fat, tightening and reviving the skin. Elasticity will be improved considerably. Etre belle is one of the few privately-managed companies of its size in the German cosmetic landscape. The Company was founded by Harry Emich more than 30 years ago, and is headquartered in the Stuttgart region, in the Southern part of Germany.

This is going to be great to use after being out in the sun. I’m constantly getting burnt being so pale, so this cooling gel is going to be great for those days spent outside! This is a full sized 40ml tube worth £15.93 which is how much the box is worth!

Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam

image

Zerreau is a brand new concept in hair washing, allowing you to wash your hair properly but with absolutely no water required. It really cleans effectively, even removing product such as hairspray, wax or gels. Leaving you with soft clean lushious locks! Zerreau is NOT a leave in product and its NOT a dry shampoo either!

This is going to be very popular with festival goers. There is only so many times you can cover your hair in dry shampoo! I love the idea, but I have used it once and I’m not totally sure I used it right, so I’m going to give it another go before making my mind up and doing some research. This is a 70ml sample. Full size is 100ml worth £6.99

SASS Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate

image

SASS Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate has been created for women who live their life at 100%. The exfoliating Salicyclic Acid and the Fruit Enzymes help prevent ingrown hairs. The Aloe Vera soothes and hydrates, whilst the Kelisoft helps to minimise hair regrowth. A perfect mix for the perfect skin.

Product Promise

Prevent ingrown hairs
Reduce hair regrowth
Soothe post-shave

I’ve never has a problem with ingrown hairs, but I am interested in its reduced hair regrowth claims. I’ve seen this advertised lately so I’m glad I’ve received it in this month’s box! This is a 30ml sample. Full size is 100ml worth £12

Collection Cosmetics Field Day Lipstick

image

Step into spring with a slick on trend pastel pink across your lips, courtesy of Collections new Field Day range. With a beautiful matte finish, it’s the perfect way to update your look in seconds.

I’ve been wearing alot of pinks in the day lately so this is a welcomes addition to my collection. Though I am stepping back from matte shades, I prefer creamier shades in the summer because my lips get so dry. This shade is called Pink rose and is a full sized lipstick worth £2.99

I’m very happy with this month’s box! I would absolutely use everything. From the full sized items they all tally up to over £25 which is great value. Last months box I wasnt too excited about and everything I got didn’t get my all excited. They have won me over again! I guess every month can’t be amazing eh?

If you’re interested in subscribing to glossybox if you could use my referal link I get 200 glossybox points for every referal!

Birchbox May First Impressions

Hello beauties! I hope you’re all good. This weekend I went to the Birmingham Foodies Festival. All the food was amazing, it was such a good day. If the festival is coming anywhere near you, I highly recommend it!

image

This month Birchbox have had a bit of a make over. They have announced their editorial theme ‘Free Your Mind’ they have a new booklet which tells you about your products, some tutorials, competitions, new on Pick Your Sample and more! So lets get onto what I received, and what I didn’t receive also!

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturiser in Light

image

As skincare obsessives, there’s nothing we love more than a moisturiser with added benefits so when we heard that Caudalie had created an innovative new product combining our beloved Vinoperfect range with a little complexion coverage we were sold. The ultimate ‘all-in-one’ product, this oil-free formula not covers imperfections but cares for your skin day after day: dark spots will fade, you skin’s natural radiance will shine, and you complexion will never have looked more even!

image

Tinted moisturisers isn’t something i tend to use alot, as I like to have a medium to full coverage. It has a great applicator though which I’ve pictured above. Makes it easier to get the right amount out of the tube instead of having a massive blob which your not gonna use. The cream is quite thick, but soaks into your skin quite quickly. Smells quite nice too! Might have to try this for when I go to the gym. This is a 15ml sample. Full size is 40ml worth £27.

Wah London Nail Polish in Dry Throat

image

Demure neutrals are manicure must-haves, but for a much-needed mani shake-up, try these eye-catching polishes from WAH London, Beyond the gorgeous hues, the long-lasting formula glides on super smoothly for an ultra glossy finish and acts as the perfect starting point to our nail art adventures.

I’ve actually never heard of this brand before which is great as this is the reason I subscribe to these boxes! You might be thinking… Why is it called dry throat? It was named Dry Throat after a trip to Morocco where the designer saw desert sands everywhere. This ochre colour takes its inspiration from North Africa and the colour of dry land. It’s a lovely colour and the brush looks great. Can’t wait to try it out! This is a full sized 6.5ml polish worth £9

Parlor by Jeff Chastain Moisturising Sea Salt Spray

image

Beach hair is no longer reserved for long weekends. Bottling the effects of that salty air, this spray from NYC stylist Jeff Chastain offers instant volume and a tousled texture. Sweet almond extract infuses strands with softness, fullness, and brilliance, while vitamin-rich algae extract nourishes and protects the scalp. Adding to this spray’s addictive nature is the scent of ripe peach, fresh-cut grass, and white woods. All products from the line are safe for colour-treated hair and are free of sulfates, parabens, and gluten.

The first thing I like is that it’s safe for colour treated hair because i have coloured blonde hair! I’m curious about how moisturising it is because of bleaching my hair, it obviously is quite dry! I’m looking forward to trying this one out! This is a 30ml bottle, full size is 147ml worth £17

Absolution Youth Activator Mask

image

Wonderful things can happen when you combine effective ingredients and beautiful design. Example A is for Absolution. Certified organic, this unisex line of skincare products is an easily combined range that can be adjusted to suit the needs of your skin on any particular day. Absolution Youth Activator Mask is an intense moisturising treatment that replenishes the skin’s water and restores its natural barrier, containing young alfalfa shoot extract, which rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Skin will appear more radiant, smooth and plump.

Now the weather is getting drier my skin is starting to get patchy again, so this is going to be really useful for me. The moisture is rather watery and smells quite odd, but it’s not a leave on moisturiser so the smell doesn’t stay around. This is a 15ml sample size.  Full size is 50ml worth £29

I was supposed to have a Jelly Pong Pong Bronzer too but unfortunately that was missing. I’m not one for bronzing anyway so it’s not like it will be missed! Overall I think this is an okay box. We have a wide range of products which is good. I hate just getting skin care products in boxes which you find with some subscriptions.

Glossybox April First Impressions

Hello beauties! Hope you’re all okay. So my Birchbox was amazing this month, so Glossybox had to do something pretty special to beat that.

image

image

This month’s box is paying homage to beauty royalty. This collectors edition box is inspired by the silver screen stars who’s elegant and timeless beauty is a relevant now as it was then. Whether you take inspiration from Marilyn Monroe, or the more demure Audrey Hepburn, a red lip and a feline flick are both essential.

Lord & Berry Lipstick Pencil in Kiss

image

Lord & Berry’s Crayon matte lipstick pencil offers an intense color, long lasting and ultra confortable application. Apply regularly on you lips as you would any other lipstick and see immediately how it soothes and softens. Long lasting textures, avaible in the four essential ranges of your emotional library: fantacy, drama, romance, poetry.

We were promised this item I the last box. This is the one product I loved in this box. The colour is right. I haven’t actually tried out these yet. Bonus that it’s a full sized item too worth £10. Got most of my money back from just that! Totally wearable colour. Looking forward to trying this out!

Astral Original Face & Body Moisturiser

image

Astral All Over Moisturiser is trusted with delicately balanced and nourishing ingredients, Astral locks in the skin’s natural moisture whilst still allowing it to breathe, leaving skin fresh, hydrated and protected. Astral- everyday indulgence you deserve.

This moisturiser certainly looks like it would pack a punch, it’s so thick and creamy. Considering its a favourite amongst Hollywood stars and make up artists, it’s quite cheap at £3.89 for a 200ml tub! Would of expected a bigger sample though! This is a 50ml sample. Packaging isn’t anything to write home about.. But as long as what’s inside is great, who cares!

POP Beauty Kajal Eyeliner Pen

image

Elizabeth Taylor’s iconic cat eye has never been easier to recreate, thanks to this sooty black kohl Pencil from Pop Beauty. Create a clicked wing with one swipe and what’s more, it’s super easy to blend for a smokies effect.

I have quite a few eyeliners that I need to get through so this will probably take me a while to get to. I tried to find this product on their website but it isn’t available, which is pretty pointless if I decide I like it.. This is a full sized item worth £6.50

Color Club Barely There Nail Polish

image

Nude nails are a key trend this spring, which also has roots in the Hollywood Era. Thus us one if our favourite shades for the coming season and complements any skin tone for a glossy and sophisticated finish.

I have so many nude nail polishes at the moment, but you can never have too many Nudes! I’ve been buying so many nail polishes at the moment that I could open up my own nail bar! This is a full sized item worth £4.10

IDC Body Lotion

image

Following in the footsteps of our favourite Hollywood icons, who lived taking the time to pamper, indulge in the beautiful aroma if lavender or rose with this soothing body lotion. Quickly absorbed, it instantly hydrates and nourishes for beautiful skin, leaving it silky soft and delicately scented.

When I first saw this, I thought it looked like the cheap body lotions you get in those sets that are littered on the shelves at Christmas… You know those ones you get in the 3 for 2 offers? It’s not a brand I’m at all familiar with or that actually wows me. However it does smell lovely, but it’s not gonna be an item is dying to try out. This is a 100ml bottle which is worth £3.59

This box didn’t really excited me at all. When I opened the box, I have to admit that I was a little disappointed. The only items I think I’ll be using is the Lord & Berry Lipstick Pencil and maybe the Astral Original Face & Body Moisturiser. Although I did get my money back from the items I received, which is always a bonus. It has a nice mixture of products which is nice to see, just not very many brands I’m excited about. I know these beauty boxes are about finding new brands to love, but the brands I’m unaware of in this box just seem a bit… Cheap.. Not that that’s a bad thing, but I think that these boxes are better used when finding out about high quality products. But I guess every box isn’t going to be a winner! Which is a little disappointed as Glossybox have been on a winning streak lately.

If you’re interested in subscribing to glossybox if you could use my referal link I get 200 glossybox points for every referal!

March Glossybox First Impressions

Hello beauties! I hope you are all well. Sorry for the late Glossybox post. It was my birthday last week so I haven’t had much time lately to actually write anything up, and with my drafts all being deleted, I had nothing to publish! But I’m scripting it in there just before March ends and April begins. How fast is this year going already huh?

image

It’s early days, but spring is here! The new season is all about fresh approach. From the colours you choose, to the products you use. That change is reflected in this box, which includes a gentle skin peel from Naobay, a do it all mascara by Essence and the spring lip shade that has become a well deserved Glossybox favourite.

Naobay Moisturising Peel

image

Facial milk with natural peeling particles from the Acai palm tree. This face peel gently exfoliates the skin, removing surface cells and impurities. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines by combining Olive oil*, Shea butter* and *Sweet Almond oil* with Gotu Kola extract that soothe the skin after the peel

This is the item they promised us in the last box and I must say i was rather excited to receive it! I love their packaging. The wooden top is just an amazing touch to a yet simple tube. This peel isn’t what you would usually assume a peal is, it’s not of an exfoliator. It was tiny exfoliating beads mixed into a rich cream, and it smells lovely too! I’m nearly out of my exfoliator so this may have to be its replacement! This is a full sized 100ml tube worth £13.71. Pretty much paid for my box!

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

image

image

Very royal! The Lash Princess mascara has a specially-shaped cobra-head wand, which covers each individual lash to create dramatic volume and a gorgeous, sweeping look – for intensive fluttering lashes. Just as unique as any princess, the mascara is presented in a bottle that looks like a beautiful evening gown.

I’m familiar with this brand through my Beauty Swap with Reify. This is a German product which is newly available in Wilkinson. The brush looks amazing, I can’t wait to try it out. I just hope it’s smudge proof too! This is a full sized 12ml tube worth £3.30

Dove Advanced Hair Series Youthful Vitality Shampoo & Conditioner

image

Did you know? As hair ages it loses essential nurtients such as proteins and lipids leaving it feeling coarse, dull and thin.
New Dove Youthful Vitality range helps replenish these*; Infused with a powerful blend of Cysteine rich protein and Elasto-Lipids, it nourishes and redensifies for fuller, more youthful looking hair. Our lightweight formula cleanses hair and creates fuller looking hair. Enjoy soft, shiny hair that is full of vitality with visible fullness.

So I’ve already had a sample of these come through with my You Beauty Discovery Box this month, so I should get some good use out of the two lots of samples.. Especially with how long and thick my hair is! This is a 2X50ml sample size. Full size is 250ml worth £5.99

ncLA Nail Lacquer

image

We’re a proudly “5 Free” luxury nail lacquer, meaning we are not only 100% free of DBP, toulene, and formaldehyde, but also of camphor and animal testing. Because we love our furry friends and toxins aren’t fashionable.

Love everything about this brand from the free from toxins, to the against animal testing… To the nail of this nail polish… I ONLY FLY PRIVATE! Absolutely love it! And I love this fabulous bright orange nail polish! Can’t wait to give this a go. This is a full sized 15ml item worth £13

Sleek MakeUP Port Paint

image

Pout Paint is a lip stain like no other! Providing lips with intense colour and a long-lasting finish, it’s the perfect product when you demand more colour. Pout Paint is made to be mixed, so the possibilities are endless.
Provides full coverage that is light weight
Non-sticky and extremely buildable

I’ve looked at these in the drugstores because and always wanted to try then out, but always feared I wouldn’t like them because they are too sticky.. Even though it claims to be non sticky, and I’m not a very big fan of the application. Thankfully, it isn’t sticky. However when I first used it, it came out clear which was a bit annoying, and it seems very hard to control on your slips which could be messy. But this is my first impression so I’ll get around to using it properly soon. This is a full sized 8ml tube worth £4.99

This is my favourite box of this month. It’s got everything. Make up, skincare, haircare and nail varnish. I love it when they cover a good broad spectrum of products, and they are all good brands too! From just the full sized products, my box is worth £35! How good is that! Glossybox have been very good lately with value for money.
