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?

Top 3 Most Worn Items This Spring

With spring well and truly underway I thought I’d share with you some of the things I’ve been loving to wear.

Bardot Dresses

These dresses are a staple in my wardrobe at the moment  as they can be worn day and night and are so flattering. They also go with pretty much everything from heels to converse.

 They retail at £24-£26 from River Island.

March 2017 Glossybox Unboxing

After what has seemed like the longest month my March Glossybox is finally here, and just like the last one it’s filled with five fantastic products I can’t wait to use!

The first product I saw was this sleek eye and cheek palette which I was very excited about as I’ve never tried out any sleek makeup before but have heard great things about it. I love all of the colours as they quite natural and perfect for everyday wear.

Next I saw the thisworks ‘in transit camera close up’ which is a mask, moisturiser and primer all in one and claims to hydrate skin leaving it dewy, plump and perfectly prepped for flawless makeup application. I’m sure it will live up to my expectations as I’ve never been let down by a thisworks product before.

A sample size of the F&R ‘Hydra-Activ smart nutrient day cream’ was also included and is supposed to deliver long lasting hydration and radiance with vitamins A,C and E. I’m looking forward to using this as my skin has been very dry and dull lately.

This 30ml sample of Swarskopfs ‘BC oil miracle brazilnut pulp treatment’ is for nourishing and moisturising hair whilst removing impurities. My hair has been really dry and limp over the last few months so I  can’t wait to give it a go.

Lastly I received this eye cream from Oolution which is 100% natural and contains ingredients which stimulate collagen synthesis. This means you’re left with bright under eyes and reduced wrinkles, obviously I don’t have any wrinkles at 21 however it will help to prevent them!

Have you tried out any of these products?
