It really feels like yesterday that I shared the wonderful goodies that was in last months box, which you can take a little look here. This months box is all about recreating the beautiful and sophisticated styling of French beauty with hints of summer on the Mediterranean coast.

Here’s all the exciting items that you can get in the…

LARITZY COSMETICS Shade Stick – A bronzer on a stick, I was actually surprised by the dark colour of this, put its perfect to add a healthy glow to your skin and can also be used a contour stick and I was amazed that it didn’t feel heavy on my skin compared to what I expected cream contours to feel, you see them all over Instagram and they just look heavy but this is lovely and whats perfect is that its also cruelty free which is a plus in my book.

MONU SKIN Eye Cool Gel – This Cool Gel has been a godsend, Since we gave up Robins dummy shes been up and down most nights, which means we lacked sleep, it says on the directions to rub under the eye to help reduce the morning puffiness and its honestly helped big time with the child induced lack of sleep, the product has such a subtle but fresh scent to it and I am going to purchase more in the future!

NIP + FAB Glycolic Scrub Fix – I am always very anxious when it comes to face scrubs, my skin can be so temperamental so I was a little worried about using this but surprisingly it isn’t as harsh as I expected it to be there are of course a little warning on it to stop if there are any irritations but its left my skin feeling all smooth and smells lovely when you rub it in.

NOVEX Mystic Black Deep Hair Mask – Much like facial scrubs, anything that goes onto my hair always worries me as my hair can be really greasy even after a day but this was lovely, it did make my hair lack volume, which is funny as I spent most of my teen-hood wishing I didn’t have frizzy hair to now wishing I had more volume and bounce but this was really nice, I can see it being something that I will continue to use until I finish it.

WILKINSON SWORD Intuition f. a. b. Razor – A razor is one thing I always fail to buy whenever I go shopping, so having one in the June box is fantastic and now I can stop using my husbands haha, nothing really special to say about it other than I’m happy I got it! Gotta get those legs out for summer… or not..

I adored this months box, I feel like theyre getting better and better with each one they send out and I love how they have little themes each month and the little sneak peak for next month looks like its all about the beach and I cannot wait!

I am useless, I had planned to do April’s box bit with how busy that month was it just never happened but no worries, its time to explore what I got on the May box! and how beautiful does this box look! I had a huge clear out over the weekend and chucked out all my older boxes because I simply didn’t have the room for them but decided to keep all the pretty limited ones and this one has joined the collection! but enough about the box.. onto the goodies!!

Just For Feet Jelly Foot Soak – I know this sounds really weird but when feet care is needed its often down the weird route, I plan on doing a nice review about this in an up coming post so I can fully share with you what I completely think of this fun and interesting product.

Maria Nala Shampoo and Conditioner – This shampoo is wonderful! I wish I had this when I was growing up as my hair was this frizzy mess as a teen and this shampoo and conditioner is such a great little set, I am usually really picky with what I put on my hair with the fact that my hair can get very greasy quickly but this has made my hair feel smooth and it smells amazing too.

Kueshi Facial Makeup Remover – Being a mother, my makeup remove is usually a baby wipe because who  has time to take their face off properly, but I have always wanted to try a liquid based remover and this one with an oil, that’s there to give your tired skin a little refreshing sensation when you remove your makeup, it works fantastically and I am glad this was part of this months box.

Trifle Cosmetics Praline Palette  – One can never have to many palettes right? this one from Trifle Cosmetics, which I have never heard of before is beautiful! six dark shades that can be used wet or dry, the shades are stunning and I love the packaging too, perfect size to fit in a handbag or travel bag!

and the a wonderful little extra treat of this interesting tea called We Are Tea, I am so picky when it comes to tea, I literally only drink one type and that’s English Breakfast but I am willing to give Ear Grey a go as it does have such a delightful scent and I know you aren’t meant to but a dash of milk and some sugar made this tea perfect for me.

That’s it for this months box, one of the things about Glossybox that I love is how many items that are vegan friendly and also friendly to our environment, this has to have been my favorite box so far, if you are interested in trying Glossybox yourself click here.

Until next time

Firstly I feel that I need to apologize for the lateness of this roundup, February was a bit of a rubbish month in the ways of mental health and actual health but after kicking myself and my anxiety in the butt I wont let it bother me much anymore (famous last words of course) so here I welcome you to last months Glossybox.

Ciate London Gelology Nail Polish – I love a good polish and if anyone hasn’t been on instagram for the past few years this one is a popular one, I have been looking at it in stores for a while but going for a more cheaper brand because money is tight but having a chance to get to play with a Ciate polish has changed my mind and I am going to get more of it! The larger bottles go for £9 and this smaller bottle goes for £6 so its a little pricey but I feel like this one is worth the price. the shades in each box differ and I got this delightful browny grey shade called Pillow Talk which I have linked above.

Steve Laurant Nude Pop Lip Tint – Lipsticks aren’t my thing, I can never find a shade that I like and I cannot seem to find anything that wont dry my lips up, but this lip tint goes on a bit like a lip balm, the shade is a lot softer than what it looks like in the pot and I actually really like it, it gives a lovely subtle colour to you lips, I feel like I have found a lip product that I actually like.

Studio 10 Beauty Makeup Mist Glow-Plexion – I see a lot of this all over instagram, its a spray that you can put on before and after makeup to keep everything in place, I have tried a Make Up Revolution version of one and I didnt really like it, but I actually like this one, it does the job perfectly and with the weather lately I have needed my makeup to stay put!

Sleek Makeup Devine Eyeshadow Palette – How beautiful are those shades, I love a makeup palette (more so when its friendly on the piggy bank) and this one by Sleek MakeUp is £8.99 which is fantastic for makeup lovers with a budget, they come in different colours, I received the Vintage Romance palette and I am so glad I got this one as the darker the colour the better.

Skin Chemists London Face Serum –  I have used this so much over the past few weeks since I got this months box, with the cold weather my skin has taken such a battering and this face serum has really helped my skin feel a lot better and a lot brighter.

And that’s what I got in February’s box! as I said at the start I am truly sorry for the delay, but it turns out that snow days make me be a lot more productive than I expected, have you tried any of the products in this months box?

Ah its that time of the month again when my postman drops off a delightful box of goodies for me to test and play with, Glossybox is my favorite of the monthly subscription boxes and continues to shine bright in the world of makeup.

but I wont babble to much about all that, heres what I got in this months box

~

Nail Medic – Nail and Cuticle Energizer – my nails are horrible, one of things I do when I am anxious is either nibble my nails or the skin around them and they just look bad but using this has made my skin and nails feel a little better, I adore the color and the scent is actually quite pleasant compared to what nail polish is, I can see this being one of those items that I will use regularly.

Evelyn Iona Cosmetics – Green Tea Primer – Primer is one of those beauty products I see everyone talk about but me being the newbie that I am, I don’t know the different between a primer and a good face cream.. but I have used this and I am now not going back! its a gentle scented little beauty that has become a new favorite of mine, sits on the skin lightly and has helped my makeup go on and stay on for a lot longer than any other cream that I use.

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Facial Oil – I have seen Dr Botanicals products around lately and I have most certainly seen facial oils practically everywhere on Instagram, so I was interested in trying them out and of course you could imagine my excitement finding them in my box this month, I have used a facial type oil before back in one of my Birch Boxes and I actually prefer this better, its not as oily as the old one, which if you weren’t careful made my skin really oily, but this goes on almost like water and has little to no scent at all,  A pleasant little surprise!

Apicia Cream Blush – Looks like another facial cream? Nope, its a lovely dark red blush, which surprisingly when blended in doesn’t look as shocking as it does in the tube, I have never used a cream blush before because I was always worried how the color would look, would it be to bright.. but I am very wrong and much like the Primer, I am not going back to the old ways, I am converted hah.

Books Beauty Beneath Supplements – I am going to be brutally honest with this one, I wont be trying them out, they happen to contain fish oils and beef gelatin and aren’t vegetarian friendly but I am going to offer them to my mum to see if she would like to give them a try, they are a boots own branded multi vitamin tablet that you take once a day and come in two different sizes, claim to help with fine lines, wrinkles and help improve skin texture.

This months box has been a wonderful selection of skin friendly products and its been wonderful pampering my skin and nails for a change, if you would like to give Glossybox a try you can here and enjoy a little pamper time!

Until next time

Another month flies past but it does mean that the November Glossybox is just around the corner and like always I am excited to get it, nothing has been bad about Glossybox and last months was such a delight that I couldn’t wait for this months.DSC_0029

Charcoal and Willow Bark Sheet Mask – I got Mr S to try this as my skin can be a little sensitive and he spend all of the 15 minutes the mask was meant to be on complaining about it. The mask itself smelt really nice but did leave a sticky residue on the skin.

DSC_0037

Define and Perfect Eyebrow Powder – who doesn’t like new eyebrow products! I however couldn’t get the hang of this one, it wasn’t a liquid like I expected, yes I know it says powder on the bottle, but I do enjoy trying different things for eyebrows as like I’ve said before, mine are super fair.. I think with something like this, practice definitely makes perfect.

DSC_0042

Contour Brush – the full size item this month was this contour brush, now contouring isn’t something I’ve actually tried because I’m not sure how to actually do it but the brush can also be used for applying powders which is what I’ve been doing, it is a really nice brush!

DSC_0046

Candy Floss Moisturizing Lip Balm – This product smells delightful! It really does smell like a sweet and I’ve been using it daily since I got it, it’s smooth and really easy to use, I couldn’t find the exact product online but I did find another delicious scent to try, but if you do find this in the shops and like the odd lip balm, grab it!

DSC_0049

Natural Bodywash Relaxing Geranium and Peppermint – equally wonderfully scented as the lip balm, I’ve used it a couple of times and I really like it, the peppermint isn’t to overpowering and it’s just a nice light body wash, it’s vegan friendly and is all natural ingredients.

And that’s it, once again I’ve really loved this months box, I really feel it’s such good value for money and you get some wonderful different items to try each month.
