I'm a mum of two great kidlets, I'm 33 and married and live in East Sussex. I am very excited to try new products and brands and always leave the house looking immaculate.
My favourite brands are Clinique, Dior, Elemis, Liz Earle, OPI and now Bondi Sands!
I am a healthcare professional but very interested in make up and beauty, I like to try new looks and my friends are quick to catch on to my latest beauty buys, tips and tricks!
Having just received my 2nd box I am so glad I ditched the Birchbox. Love the free copy of Elle magazine each month and the glossy booklet with the product guide and usage tips. Excellent quality and informative. The products inside are great quality items and very good trial sizes plus some full size too. A bigger and better quality box and far more variety. The box is so much nicer and the presentation is far superior than the inferior Birchbox for the same price and a bigger shop discount too. The products well outweigh the price paid and I am pleasantly surprised each month. Subscribe! 😍
I was thrilled to get to trial this and was not disappointed (okay I missed out on the Karl lagerfield highlighter 😭 Last box!) but was really pleased with the contents of this one. The trial sized Maria mila soft shampoo/conditioners were 100ml each, lovely, I also had 3 full size products including makeup remover, a jelly foot soak and a eyeshadow pallete and a bonus trial of earl grey tea! Hadn't heard of the full size products before but on trying them I was impressed. The box was beautiful and wrapped up all pretty inside. I am a glossy box convert as from today...bye bye birchbox 😂
I found this little beauty after trialling their optimal skin set and literally falling in love ❤️ This face tan serum is definitely up there with my favourite products. Easy to apply and smoothed on beautifully. At first I worried that the colour looked to dark for me but once I had applied it, I didn't look streaky or dare I say "orange" and the colour developed oh so gradually into a gorgeous sun kissed glow. I found that it didn't smell nasty either like some facial tanners I've tried. Really impressed with this and found the price to be fair and really great value for a great looking tan
Morning you lovely lot of beauties!
Been a bit quiet on here last few weeks as had coursework to complete!
I'm now fully qualified in level 5 diploma in health and social care management 😊
Not off to treat myself to some new beauty treats to congratulate myself 😂
I was excited to try this as thought it may be easier to target where I wanted it and this product didn't disappoint in that aspect. I loved the jelly concept and was surprised at how such a tiny dab went such a long way. It did feel very wet and I did worry that it would wreck my foundation but was happy it did not. I loved the iridescent glow and the glittery effect but felt that the purple glittery hue was more targetted at younger ladies than myself as I felt a bit too dressy and done up, not for everyday use but would look great for a night out on the town. My daughter nabbed it 😂
This is a colour duo I wouldn't necessarily have bought myself as don't usually find that pale colours work well and always end up patchy so trialling this was a great experience as I found that two coats of the pink were perfectly adequate. The brush makes such light work as it is wide and really clings to the nail as the colour glides on. The glittery polish was lovely but needed 2 coats also to get an even covering so 2 nails had 4 coats in total but didn't look thick or overloaded. Without top coat it chipped after a couple of days but with seche vita applied it has lasted well. Stunning
I gave this an awful review when got it in my birch box as after the first couple of tries all it did was over coat my lashes and clump them together totally wrecking my makeup. After a week or two I gave it another shot and after it had dried out a bit, the results were much better. The lift and volume was very good and it seems to last very well too. Hadnt liked the brush at first as it felt too bendy and slim but now I've got used to it, I have got some pretty awesome results. The pigmentation is very good and gives a dark, dense and intense black colour and really pops my lashes out.
This is like a little all year round go me treat and I love the mystery of what I will find each month. As I've had it a year now I do get to choose at least one item a month and the box design. The boxes are always nicely designed and are grea for storing jewellery and hair bobbles. The items inside can be hit and miss though. A mix of makeup, hair and beauty products but generally a good mix of brands too. I love my spectrum brushes I've received and benefit and Seche vita nail top coat etc it's a fairly good value surprise but am tempted to try somethings else as need more better brands
Supersoft and heavenly scented hair really is achievable with this amazing hair oil. After years of damage caused my over bleaching, I thought only the dreaded chop would bring my hair back into a reasonable condition, then my sissy/hairdresser suggested I try this. I could honestly have kissed her! Just a few treatments have given my hair a new lease of life. Non greasey, easily & rapidly absorbed, this wonder oil has changed my hair and made it soft, well nourished and manageable and yet is reasonably cheap to buy. What's more it leaves a gorgeous vanilla based fragrance better than perfume
