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.

Glossybox has given us a treat this month, whether you are a proud unicorn or a mighty mermaid, you will love this months box, which is unfortunately now sold out but I thought I should still do my monthly roundup of what was in it.

I got, as you can see, Unicorn! I couldn’t resist placing my unipusheen in the photos, whats better than a unicorn than a fat grey cat unicorn?

Mermaid v Unicorn Eye shadow Palette – when I saw this palette my heart skipped a little, I love the shades and I honestly cannot wait to play with them properly, at a pocket friendly price of £4 and can be found in your local Superdrug is this wonderful funky palette.

DSC_0099

Kawaii Enterprise Brush Cleansing Egg – when I opened this up, I honestly thought it was just another beauty blender, purely because of how it was packaged, but it isnt that at all, but a brush cleaner! I have been seeing all over my facebook of homemade cleaners with a bit of plastic and some hot glue so getting this, is a highlight! it fits nicely on your fingers and is perfect for smaller brushes.

DSC_0102

Bang Beauty Cream Color – How beautiful is this color? what is it? I hear you ask, it is in fact a multi use cream, you can use it anywhere and I have mainly worn it on my lips, and I love it, it reminds me of those little pots of lip balm I used to collect as a teen.

DSC_0105

Lord and Berry Brow Pencil – I have probably said this before but my eyebrows are terrible, they are fair and just not there so i’m always on the hunt for new eyebrow pencils or tricks, and I love this, the one I received was slightly darker to what I was used to but I love how easily it was applied! I can see this being an every day use thing!

DSC_0108

Sleek Makeup Creme to Powder Blush – The packaging of this is velvet, I think I was more impressed with the packaging than I was the product haha, I am a newbie with makeup so not only do i not own any blush (well I do now) but I also do not know how to use it, this shade is really pretty and its making me want to attempt to go from newbie to not so newb with my make up.

All these products are full size in this months box, usually its two full size and three samples but I love how Glossybox gave us such a fun treat for October and I cannot wait for the November box now!

Until next time

This months Glossybox was a lovely little surprise! I am a bit of a useless order tracker so when things turn up at my front door I get all excited.. lets take a look at what I got in the August box!

Essence live.Laugh.Celebrate Palette – This is a cute little ‘make your own’ travel palette, perfect for putting in a bag and taking along on your jollies (holiday), The collection that I got was two eyeshadow shades, one blush and one higlighter, and I love the little rattly box to store them in! The palette itself retails at 1.50 and the powder 1.50 each, which is pretty good for the pockets!

Batiste 2 in 1 Dry Shampoo and Conditioner – This is my favorite of the dry hairspray brands! I have about five different bottles because one is never enough, but this is the first time I have seen or used the shampoo and conditioner version, and I love it! but being that Batiste is my favorite brand, what more could you expect

Here is my month two of the Sassybloom box, I love this months box, everything in it has been enjoyed and played with almost daily, which is always a wonderful thing.

And as you can see from this picture, all the wonderful goodies inside the box.. lets dive in and talk about them all..

The bus, has been played by both R and the older children, its a sorter, but the bus also moves around the room, you can open it up at the back and take the blocks out, I have caught R sitting down on her own talking away to herself putting blocks in and out of the bus, some pieces have gone missing because lets face it.. children… but through the ingenious of the older two they have dug out other blocks and bits from the toy box to fill up.. an all round, fantastic toy

When I Dream of 1,2,3 by Oakley Graham is a number count book and we love counting books here, the words are easy for a child of 4/5 to read and the illustrations are beautiful big and perfect for a younger child to sit down and count.

Now this is a bath toy, its made by Munchkin and it sticks to the side of the bath or on a tile, but we have been using it in the living room and sticking it to the toy box or Mr S’s desk, R loves it, and will endlessly take out the balls and place them back in over and over again, I’d move it into the bathroom but its being very much enjoyed where its been stuck since.. haha.

And finally we have some cute little cars, they are perfect for small hands to grab and push around, R will dig these out of the toy box and loves pushing them about the room, she has also taken to putting them inside the bus I mentioned earlier..

I just love how all these toys are now the main things that are played with first in the mornings and we all get excited when the big box turns up at the door, I am always asked to open it straight away!

Out of all the monthly boxes I have, This one gets is the most enjoyable, the children love it and I love seeing them have fun with new toys and books each month..

I cant wait for month 3 🙂

Until next time
