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?

This is honestly the best mascara that i’ve ever used, it is also one of Kiko’s best selling and I can definitely see why! It leaves my lashes looking thick and volumised without being clumpy and can be built up for an amazing dramatic look or you can apply less for every day wear.

Weekly Favourite

Each week I’m going to tell you about my favourite thing; whether it be a person, product or something else.

This weeks favourite is my crushed velvet Dr Martens.

I got these gorgeous shoes for my birthday in February and absolutely love them. They’re extremely comfortable and required no breaking in what so ever.

Dr martin 6

They were on sale for around £55 when i got them on www.drmartens.com but I can’t find them on the website anymore. Very.co.uk are selling them for £77 though, which isn’t too bad.

Do any of you own a pair of Dr Martens?
If not, what are your favourite pair of shoes?

Top 3 Face Masks

Having oily, sensitive skin makes finding face masks that work an impossible challenge, they always seem to be too harsh and leave my skin feeling irritated and raw. Finally, after a lot of awful experiences, I’ve found three masks that do wonderful things to my skin.

I’m going to tell you about each of them, in no particular order.

The Body Shop’s Honey & Oat 3 In 1 Scrub Mask

This mask is absolutely brilliant, I use it once a week to soften and gently exfoliate my skin. I would recommend it for all skin types as it is gentle but gives great results as it is so moisturising. It also smells lovely and is easy to apply.

Retails at £9

The Body Shop’s Warming Mineral Mask

I’ve been using this mask for years now, and could honestly never replace it. I use it once a week to give my skin a deep cleanse. It gently warms up when  applied to the skin so it can unclog pores and prevent spots. When rinsed off after the five minutes, it leaves the skin feeling squeaky clean, yet not dry and tight.

Retails at £9

Sanctuary Moisture Boosting Mask

I use this mask whenever my skin is looking dull as it gives the skin a gorgeous healthy glow.  It also seems to calm redness and improves my skin tone and texture.

Retails at £2.03 per sachet

I hope I’ve helped anyone who is struggling to find a good mask.
Do any of you have a favourite face mask?
