Glossybox

I’ve received an email to say my Glossybox of May 2017 has shipped! This means that I really need to post this before it arrives, so I’ll get to review the new stuff…

As you may have heard, last month’s box (April) was my first…

Firstly, I’ve got to say that I was very pleased with my goodies. I mean, I had something delivered which I’ve wanted to try for years but was too scared to (because it was around the time that I had sensitive, acne-prone skin)!

This Works: In Transit Camera Close Up

A handbag must have – it’s a mask, moisturiser and primer all-in-one, for a long-lasting perfect make-up finish.

This is the bae that I wanted to try years ago but couldn’t bring myself to… Victoria Beckham apparently swears by this, so if it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for me!

this high-performance Superblend features Bio Boost – our unique blend of anti-oxidant plant oils- to rebuild and protect the skin barrier, along with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and Caffeine to rebalance and revitalise.

My verdict: I love this. I also love that it smells extremely floral. It honestly feels so luxurious on my face…

this portable pick-me-up will even, plump and brighten skin instantly, ensuring you’re always ready for that close-up

I’ll finish this product’s review by saying that a) you can purchase one for yourself here and b) this was my favourite of all products received this month. I’ll be purchasing this in full-size.

Sleek Makeup Eye and Cheek Palette – All Day Soiree

Earthy eyeshadow tones? Check. Coral-ly tones? Check. awesome blush tones? Check. Oh wow. I loved this one. My eyelids and blusher looked radiant and flawless thanks to Sleek.

Eye & Cheek Palette provides all of your colour essentials in one convenient compact, this versatile palette contains four eyeshadows and two blushers.

I don’t usually like eyeshadow, unless it’s an earthy tone – anything from brown, gold, and dark ones work really well with my eyes – so I tend to stick with them. Imagine my surprise when I found Glossybox’s recommendation.

All Day Soiree will refresh any beauty look, the combination of shimmering peach and beige hues create a delicate, feminine finish. The assortment of on-trend blush shades of creamy champagne and pastel pink provide a healthy flush to cheeks.

Yes, I know Glossybox customise the gifts based on my skin tone, eye and hair colour but – come on…

The fact that I know what suits my eye colour without having a degree/diploma in makeup artistry is shocking in itself! The only thing stopping me purchasing this in full-size is that I actually don’t usually wear eyeshadow.

oOlution – Eye Love

Eye Love oOution. It’s the sOlution to my eye (£10 per) bag/s! I do get my fair share of the odd eye bag or two. I know it’s because I spend most of my time smiling and laughing (mostly at my phone – after reading a funny tweet). So, I was very pleasantly surprised when Glossybox sent me this.

Eye love is a 100 % natural eye contour. It contains more than 65 botanical active ingredients (all organically grown) for a tailored action. Eye love reduces dark circles and bags thanks to its vasoconstrictive and detoxifying natural ingredients. With its moisturizing and draining efficacy, it minimizes the visible signs of fatigue in the eye contour area.

I have been using this every day since I received it, and I can tell you that it’s one of the best eye creams/gels that I’ve used. It absorbs super quick, and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.

Also, I’ve noticed that it wakes my eyes up more, truthfully. I could look zombie-like ‘pon rising from my slumber, but once this goes on it’s like my eyes are energised. All the better to see bae’s (old and most recent) selfies with…  

I’ll definitely be purchasing.

Schwarzkopf Brazilnut Oil Pulp Treatment

The highly nourishing formula has superb moisturising benefits as well as anti-oxidative properties and added UV filters. Innovative Argan powder particles gently remove impurities for healthy-looking hair and brilliant shine.

This thing right here… Wow. It’s absolutely a sorcerer/sorceress to the scalp and hair, mid-ends. What is this magic that I’ve ONLY just diskopfered?

Aiiiiiiiiiiii!

The smell of this is what one would call D-VINE! That “I heard it through the grapevine” kinda shizz… 😍

The steps are as follows: rinse your hair, apply shampoo as usual (’cause I did), then apply it on as a treatment (to replace your conditioner). Leave it on for 5-10 mins, wash off and do this once or twice a week.

It’s actually LUSH! I loved how soft, shiny and thick my hair felt after just one use…

Also, it helps that I’m nutty in life, doesn’t it? Not Brazilian though. Soz!

Figs & Rouge Hydra-Active Smart Nutrient Vital Moisturiser Day Cream

This one didn’t bode well on my skin. I think it’ll be great on others, it sadly wasn’t on me… I noticed whiteheads were forming after the first (and only) application. It’s supposed to be very good for the skin and really helpful with filling in fine lines… I’m sure it does, I just haven’t used it long enough because it kind-of broke me out.

An ultimate replenishing day cream complex that delivers instant & long lasting hydration to leave skin smooth & radiant. Formulated with moisturising ‘Smart Nutrient’ Technology & Nourishing Vitamin Complex A, C, E. Three hydrating, deeply penetrating & rejuvenating phases to balance skin tone & optimally moisturise the skin.
