Are You Bored Of Monthly Beauty Boxes Like Me?

When monthly beauty boxes first started appearing on the market I was super excited. The fact that I could pay roughly £12 a month to receive a surprise box filled will little products really, really excited me as I am a person who loves trying out and discovering new products. However, as they years have gone on, the novelty sadly has worn off for me and I’ve become bored and unimpressed with each monthly subscription box that I receive. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the one off and limited/special edition boxes that brands release (Ahem, Latest In Beauty)…

January 2014 Glossybox – Back To Basics

Want to know my thoughts on the January 2014 Back To Basics Glossybox? Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream – (Sample size x2 3g) RRP £13.50 for 33g This is said to be a multi-use cult moistursing cream from Japan which is meant to revamp your skin by enriching it with ingredients such as Vitamin E, Vitamin B2, Camphor and glycerine. Basically, it’s a moisturiser. Something that I own plenty of to be quite honest. These two 3g tubes honestly don’t tickle my fancy in the slightest but I guess I’ll give them a go, who knows they might work wonders on…

December 2013 Glossybox – Festive Treasures

Want to know my thoughts on the December 2013 Glossybox? Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Nude Lip Gloss (4ml) Full size RRP £12.00 for 8ml I’m always after new nude lip products so I was pleased to see this dinky fellow in my box. I’ve not heard of Beautiful Movements but from a little research I can tell you that it’s a cruelty free mineral make up range co foundered by ex Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and Aberdeen businesswoman Laura McComiskie. I’ve had a look at the range briefly and I must say their Velvet Dawn blush looks lovely and surprisingly isn’t…

Review | Impress Nails

Want to know my thoughts on the Impress Nails? What Broadway Nails say “imPRESS is the revolutionary way to apply polish. Lasts up to a week. No drying time, no chipping – unlike a nail polish manicure. Superior, lasting shine; like a salon UV gel manicure. So easy to apply; just peel off, press on, and done!” Price The Impress Nails retail at £7.99 and are available to buy online on the Boots website and in selected Boots stores. Packaging The nails comes in a lovely quirky polish bottle which I think is genius. Not only does it keep all the…

November 2013 Glossybox – The Glossy Wishlist

Want to know my thoughts on the November 2013 Glossybox – The Glossy Wishlist box? Like a lot of people, it’s no secret that over the past few months I’ve been highly disappointed with my Glossybox subscription, so much so that I even wrote an open letter to Glossybox, explaining my disappointment and informing them that if they didn’t change there ways and improve their boxes, I’d be forced to cancel. I think it’s safe to say Glossybox might just have taken everyone’s comments and complaints on board as their November box is certainly a big improvement. Vichy Idealia Life…

An Open Letter to Glossybox

Dear Glossybox, Getting my monthly box excites me greatly, I wait eagerly for it to arrive to see what goodies you’ve picked out for me but in all honestly Glossybox, you’re letting me down. Back in July I was impressed with my Seaside Splash box as it contained some wonderful little gems like the two Sleek Pout Paints which I highly enjoyed (I even purchased another after trying) The Anatomicals Spray Me Misty came in handy for the scorching weather and the Ciate polish and Alterna Haircare products weren’t bad either. Sure the Coola Organic sunscreen wasn’t the best as it…
