July 2017 Glossybox Unboxing

The July Glossybox is finally here and contains 5 lovely products to help get you through the summer months!

First up is a 100ml travel size bottle of the MONUspa first defence soothing after sun lotion. It contains aloe vera, shea butter and vitamin E to help nourish and care for dehydrated skin after a day in the sunshine; it’s going to be perfect to take on holiday!
This full size tub of the Bellapierre banana setting powder (RRP £25) was also in the box. I’m looking forward to trying it out as it claims to counteract any redness or discolouration due to its yellow hue.
A Cutebalms Macaroon Tint Balm in Crushed Berry (RRP £5.99) was the third item in my Glossybox. It smells fantastic and leaves a gorgeous pink sheen on the lips, definitely a new handbag essential.

I’m curious to see whether these Papanga Spiral Headbands (RRP £4.99) will last longer than other bobbles like this I’ve used before. They usually end up stretching out and snapping, however these seem to be made of a much stronger material so hopefully they will do a better job!

Lastly I received a Spectrum fan brush (RRP £4.99) which is said to be good for applying highlighter and gently removing any excess product such as eye shadow fallout. It’s made from high quality synthetic hair and is vegan and cruelty free.

Have you tried any of these products?

April 2017 Glossybox Unboxing

Once again Glossybox have delivered me five lovely products to try out and share with you!

Firstly I received this SportFX eyebrow pencil in ‘brunette’ which twists up on one side to fill in any sparse areas and has a brush on the other to help keep your brows in shape.

The next thing I saw was this Model co contour stick, I’ve never used anything like this before and am looking forward to using it! I’ll let you know how I get on.

This Radial ‘glamolash’ mascara is supposed to give XXL volume and is the perfect mini size for travelling or keeping in your makeup bag for touch ups throughout the day.

I’ve used a Merci handy sanitiser before in the vanilla scent and absolutely loved it, they leave your hands feeling clean without drying them out. A total handbag must-have.

I’ve heard about co-washing before but never got around to giving it a go so i’m looking forward to testing out this one from Dellwash haircare. It’s supposed to be a lot more gentle on hair and stop it feeling dry and frizzy; definitely something I would benefit from.

Barcelona Haul

I recently returned from a fantastic four day break in Barcelona and bought some lovely things that I thought I’d share with you!

This gorgeous green shirt is from Stradivarius and cost around 23 euros which is amazing as i’ve worn it three times and only been back a week! It can easily be dressed up with a necklace and boots or down with light jeans and vans.

These shorts are from a little boutique shop that I stumbled across and I can’t remember the name of it! They only cost 7.99 and are going to be a summer staple with plain t-shirts.

I got this clutch bag from the same shop as I got the shorts and it was only 4 euros. It’s going to be perfect to take on my holiday to Greece as it will go with all of my outfits for both day and night.

I got this face mask from Sephora for around 3 euros and was really looking forward to trying it but I must have done something wrong as it set before I could even apply it!

I also bought these two sheet masks from Sephora as I’ve heard they’re really good. They only cost 1.50 too which is a total bargain.

Holiday Haul

I recently went on holiday to Greece for a week and bought some lovely things that I thought I would share with you.

The first thing I got was this gorgeous leather bag. It cost 60 euros which is great as it’s amazing quality and will never go out of style.

I got this necklace for around 4-5 euros and absolutely love it, it goes with everything and looks a lot more expensive than it is.

This piece cost only 3 euros and gives the effect of wearing more than one bracelet as it wraps around your wrist three times. The blue stones also add a gorgeous pop of colour to a plain outfit.

 I got one of these sponges 9 years ago when I last went to Greece and absolutely loved it so I thought I would get another. It cost 3.50 and works amazing at gently removing dead skin.

I’ve been using olive oil in my hair as a mask to make it soft and shiny, so when I saw these soaps I knew I had to try them to see if the oil worked well on my skin too. It cost 3 euros with the pumice stone which is a great deal.

This bow ring is absolutely beautiful, and it only cost me 3.50!  It’s quite a statement ring which means that you don’t need to wear a lot of other jewellery with it.

The colours and patterns in this 5 euro scarf mean that it will go with a lot of outfits and will also be perfect for transitioning into autumn.

These light pink high tops look gorgeous with tanned legs and go with almost any outfit. They only cost me 29 euros which is a great saving as I would have paid over £40 in England.

I love this ankle bracelet, it looks best when worn with my converse and a pair of shorts. It only cost me 4 euros too, which is a great price.

Overall, I think I got some lovely pieces and great deals.
Have any of you bought anything on your holidays?
