GLOSSYBOX UK: Daydreamer Box – May 2018

My Glossybox arrived early this month but I’m only just getting around to writing my GB post. I love this months box and the theme for May is all about ‘day dreaming’. This months box has a gorgeous, blissful design with soft, pastel hues and tranquil vibes and contains not one but 5 cruelty-free products. I’m happy about that!

The MAY box has five products, (3 full size, 2 travel size) plus one extra treat and the box contents are worth £40+ which is great as it’s only £13.25 for the subscription. My fave product this month is the Double Effect Make Up Remover from KUESHI and as a tea-a-holic – I absolutely loved the tea from We Are Tea.

I’m not the biggest fan of eyeshadow palettes as I’m absolutely crap at doing eyes but this gorgeous Praline Palette is stunning and comes in gorgeous packaging.

They are formulated to be creamy yet vivid with a velvety-smooth texture AND vegan-friendly too! Plus free from any nasty ingredients that are irritating to sensitive eyes!

My fave product from this months box!!!! Love, Love, LOVE! This make-up removing cleanser is a double effect, calming make up remover. The c;lear solution is rich in soft oils and it works with the blue solution to remove makeup gently! You need to shake the bottle before using – it leaves skin so moisturised and brightens up your complexion.

GLOSSYBOX UK NOVEMBER 2017


Greenfrog Botanic – Relaxing Geranium & Peppermint Bodywash – RRP* / £8.95

I received a 100 ml travel sized, aeroplane safe bodywash which is actually a good size with a generous amount of product. It is a natural, vegan, cruelty-free plant-based bodywash infused with geranium and peppermint and also contains antibacterial organic soapberries and organic aloe vera. It contains no parabens, SLS or ALS ingredients and it’s made in the UK. It also won the Editors Choice at the 2017 Beauty Shortlist Awards so I’m very excited about it and I can’t wait to use it. It’s also recommended for people with dry skin, eczema, etc… so I’m interested to see how it works on my psoriasis. This is the first product I have owned from Greenfrog Botanic and to be honest I had never heard of the brand until now but I’m very happy this was in my box this month as I love natural skincare products and I’ll definitely be checking out some other products from Greenfrog Botanic..

Beauty UK Cosmetics – Contour/Powder Brush – RRP* / £6.99

So this contour/powder brush was last months sneek peek and I’m happy I received it in my box. You can never have too many make-up brushes, hey! The bristles are so soft its unreal and it can be used for buffing, blending, contouring and highlighting.

SportFX Cosmetics – Candy Floss Moisturising Lip Balm – RRP* / £4.99

This is a limited edition, candy-floss flavoured lip balm which has been created exclusively for GLOSSYBOX. It leaves a slight pink tint on the lips and helps to repair dry, chapped lips. It has gorgeous packaging, smells absolutely gorgeous and also contains SPF15, vitamins and antioxidants which help to protect, soothe and soften the lips. I’m happy with this product even though I own tons of lip balms already. This will definitely get used, it smells lush!

Collection Cosmetics – Define & Perfect Eyebrow Powder – RRP* / £4.19

The Define & Perfect Eyebrow Powder is a defining powder which fills in sparse areas and adds depth. The formulation contains fibre particles to add instant volume and the fine-tipped nib lets you create natural hair-like strokes. I have jet black hair and I received the brunette 2 shade which is too light for me so I probably wont use it… if I do I will layer it over my brow pencil to add a bit of oomph to my brows.

BOOTS – Charcoal & Willow Bark Sheet Mask – RRP* / £2.50

I was so excited when I seen this Charcoal and Willow Bark Sheet Mask in my box as I love a good face mask and sheet masks, originally a Korean trend, are the future. The mask contains willow bark and charcoal to deeply cleanse and purify the skin. The only thing is it contains parabens so if you say no to parabens you won’t be happy with this sheet mask. When are big, popular brands going to ditch harsh ingredients from their products. I’ll give it a go anyways and post a little review when I’ve done so.

SPOILER ALERT FOR DECEMBER!

Review: Rodial – Suede Lips Lip Crayon – Big Apple

I got this Suede Lips lip crayon from Rodial in my September Glossybox and this is the first time I have ever owned one of their products so I was very happy to receive it in my box. I was sent a 2.4g lip crayon in the shade Big Apple which retails at £22 on Rodial’s website. For those who don’t know about the brand, Rodial is a high-end skincare & make-up brand founded by international beauty journalist – Maria Hatzistefanis. Rodial sell a wide range of products including skincare, make-up, body-care and gorgeous little gift sets and so far I’m liking the brand.

ABOUT: ”Saturate your lips with intense pigmented colour with an on-trend matte finish with our Suede Lip jumbo crayon. The long-lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with Vitamin E and has a creamy texture, allowing colour to glide on effortlessly for smooth looking lips with a pop of colour. Inspired by the confident, independent city woman, Big Apple is a beautiful soft burgundy berry colour to add a touch of sophisticated colour for a night out with the girls.” – Rodial

VERDICT: On first impressions I did think the Big Apple shade would be too dark against my pale skin as it is a rich dark-nude, burgundy/brown colour with berry tones but I absolutely love it and it has become my fave lip colour these last few weeks and I’ve been wearing it every day instead of my all time fave Kat Von D ‘Studded Kiss lipstick in shade Magick, The colour is gorgeous, not too ‘in your face’ but not a boring colour either. I love it and it is not as dark as I first thought it would be and it really compliments my skin tone.

800VBNM

I love the creamy texture and how it glides easily over the lips leaving a true matte finish and I didn’t find it sticky or greasy either. It stays put for hours too although I did find it to be a little drying on my lips which I’ve found quite common with matte lipsticks. My lips are always dry and chapped at this time of year so before I apply the lip crayon I make sure to moisturise my lips with my Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm to keep them hydrated and soft.  I use the tip of the crayon to line my lips and I then fill in the rest with the crayon. The only downfall is there isn’t enough product in the crayon so it won’t last very long. As you can see from my photo’s I’m nearly used up but, I really do love the colour and I’m really liking the Suede Lips collection so I will defo be looking at the other shades to see what I can buy next – I just wish there was more product in the packaging.

DISCLOSURE: I received this product in my Glossybox subscription box which I pay for with my own money.

WHERE TO BUY: You can get it HERE on the website for £22.

Glossybox: October 2017 – Unicorns & Mermaids

I can’t even begin to explain how EXCITED I have been for this months Glossybox. I’ve literally had butterflies in my stomach since September and I’ve been checking my emails religiously for a dispatch email from Glossybox. I don’t even know why I have been extra excited this month. Ha. Probably down to the fact that us glossies will receive a gorgeous, pretty, fab, lovely, adorable MERMAID or UNICORN themed box this October. C’mon girls… who doesn’t love mermaids and unicorns! Not only that, this month we will all receive five FULL SIZE make-up products with a total value of £51.48 which is definitely something to be happy about considering we have only paid £13.25 for the subscription.

Mr. Postman delivered my box today and I have been sent the gorgeous pink & blue UNICORN box. I’ll admit I was kind of wishing for the MERMAID box as I’m totally a mermaid at heart but I was still over the moon with my gorgeous unicorn box design and it is sitting on my dressing table right now looking FAB.

Sleek Make-Up – Crème To Powder Blush – RRP £5.99

This cream-to-powder blush is highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. It claims to give a natural, dewy finish and is applied to the cheeks and blended to create a powder finish. Each box will contain one of six shades. unfortunately I got the shade CRIMSON which is so bright its unreal. I would have preferred a more subtle, lighter shade as I think the crimson shade will look ridiculous against my pale skin, I’m guessing I’ll look like a clown. I’ll give it a go nonetheless and I’ll let you guys know what I thought of it. I’m quite new to Sleek Make-Up and I only own one of their products which is the Black Eyebrow Powder – which I’m not a big fan of so maybe this blush will be the decider for me as to whether or not I like Sleek products and if I will buy them again.

Kawaii Enterprise – Brush Cleansing Egg – RRP £7.99

So this Brush Cleaning Egg from Kawaii Enterprise is a bright pink silicone make-up brush cleaner which is easy to use and helps to keep your brushes in great shape and free from bacteria. You just pop your two fingers inside the egg, wet your brush and add a bit of liquid soap or facial cleanser. You then swirl your brushes against the nodules and bumps and run the bristles of your brush down the deeper grooves to realign the brush hairs without damaging them. I think this is a great little pick for this months box as everybody needs clean brushes – but I already own a set of brush cleansing eggs which I’ve reviewed here, so there is no point in having another really. I’m sure my sister will love the Brush Cleansing Egg so I’ll give it to her or maybe I will add it to a bundle of other beauty products and run a GIVEAWAY for you lot. What do ya think?

Lord & Berry – Magic Brow Perfect Eyebrow Pencil – RRP £14

The Magic Brow Perfect Brow Pencil is a highly pigmented pencil and it has a marbelised tip which is swirled with two complimentary shades so it looks natural and produces a gorgeous colour variation found in natural brows. I got the brunette shade as I told Glossybox I had black hair in my beauty profile so I’m guessing you will get a shade based on your beauty profile… so make sure if you ever change your hair colour to update your details on the website. I really like Lord & Berry products and I own quite a few of their products already so I’m really happy with this high end product being in this months box. I can’t wait to give it a try and I hope I like it as I’m struggling with my brows at the minute, haha. The pencil retails at £14 so it is worth more than the subscription itself.

Bang Beauty – Cream Color – RRP £19.50

The Crème Color from Bang Beauty is a multi-purpose cream which can be used on the lips, cheeks and eyes. It comes in a small tub and has a super shiny mirrored lid which looks beautiful, it is also vegan and cruelty-free so thumbs up. I have never heard of Bang Beauty before so I cant wait to give this product a go as I love discovering new brands – I suppose that’s the best part about subscribing to a beauty box. The Crème Colour is priced at £19.50 so the value of thus product alone outweighs the £10 subscription cost.

Make-Up Revolution – Mermaids vs Unicorns Eyeshadow Palette – RRP £4

I’m not really into my eyeshadow palettes because I’m absolutely awful at eye makeup and prefer to get my eyes done by a MUA – but, these mermaid and unicorn colours are so pretty, dreamy and amazing that I think it’s about time I taught myself how to apply eyeshadow properly. YouTube to the rescue! The Mermaids vs Unicorns Palette is a budget-friendly palette at just £4 and there is a double ended eyeshadow brush included too. I think I will try some mermaid and unicorn inspired makeup tonight and if it doesn’t look poo, I’ll post the results on my Instagram page.
