Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Lipsticks

Drug store lipsticks are just getting better and better but sometimes you just have to splash out and treat yourself to a high end lipstick or 4. These Pure Colour Envy lipstick by Estee Lauder cost £26 so they are not cheap but they are worth every penny and I have 2 mattes and 2 creams to talk to you about today.

First of all the packaging is perfect it just feels high end with the magnetic closure and gold colour on both ends then blue round the sides, this does not feel plasticky or cheap. They do look a little old fashioned but that does not take away from high end feeling of them.  

     Unattainable                   Shameless Violet
Lets talk matte first. When you first put these matte lipsticks on you would almost think they are cream lipsticks, they go on so easily and feel so comfortable to wear. There is no need to put a load of this lipstick on because these lipsticks are so pigmented and they are not shear. They can dry your lips out a wee bit but nothing that a bit of lip balm cant fix and because they feel creamy they dont look horrible when you put these on dry lips, you can notice your lips might look a little dry but compared to other matte lipsticks you can get away it.

    Powerful                       Dominant
The first every Estee Lauder lipstick that I bought was the Pure Colour Envy in Powerful which is sadly almost finished and yes I will be replacing it. Im not really in to girly pink lipsticks but for some reason this one just works really will for me and I love it, its my summer time lipstick if the sun is out then I will have this on. It just makes me feel good when I wear this lipstick, Dominant is a fantastic colour as well but Powerful has my heart. These cream lipsticks are really good and I think they are made for magic, Im not joking. Even though these lipsticks are cream they last so long, I would expect a matte lipstick to last a long time but a cream lipstick still looking good after a 8 hour shift at work and its not tried to run all over my face and bleed past my lip line is a bit unusual. Normally when Im on my break at work I do touch up my lipstick but most on the time I dont really think I need to with these lipsticks. I do see them transfer on to cups and things but somehow there is still so much colour on my lips. 

I think if your planning on treating yourself to a high end lipstick you should try these whether its the matte or cream ones they are both really good. My top 2 are Powerful which is from the creams and then Unattainable which is from the mattes.

If there is anything you would like to ask about these lipstick then leave it in the comments below and I will get back to you as so as I can. 

Have you tried these lipstick?
Let me know what you think of them in the comments.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Olay Daily Facial In A Box

I have see these Daily Facial In A Box before years ago then shops just stopped selling them but I found them again and I really wanted to try them. These cloths have got aloe, chamomile extract and Vitamin E in them and these cloths are for sensitive skin, they are also dermatologically tested and fragrance and soap free.

The way your meant to use these cloths is by running the dry cloth under water which will make the cloth become activated, you can then use these cloths to remove make up, exfoliate and Olay also says they can reduces the appearance of pores. I was so looking forward to trying these cloths out to take my make up off with because they sound so good.

So I did as they said I put the dry cloths under water and then I went to take my make up off with it. Normal when I do a review I always like to try the product a few times so I can really get a good idea of what I think of it but with this I have only used it once because I cant bring myself to use them again.

If you have read my blog before then you might know I have very sensitive eyes and using these cloths hurt so much and I dont even think they removed my make up that well. Now these might be ok for sensitive skin but if you have dry skin then run! Just run the other way. Im not joking, these made my skin feel so dry they killed my skin. If you have oily skin you might really like these but normal and dry skin I would just avoid these.

I really like the idea of these cloths and I think they would be really good for travelling but they need to be a lot better before I even think about trying these ever again.

Im sorry that this post is so negative but Im not going to tell you I like something if I dont.

Have you tried this Olay Daily Facial In A Box? What did you think of it?

Kat Von D and Too Faced Better Together Lip and Cheek Set

I know I normally do reviews and hauls but as soon as I opened this I had to make a post about it. I was very lucky to get the Kat Von D and Too Faced Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection for my birthday and I really like, in the palette you get six eye shadow colour which are really nice and so easy to work with and I really like the fact you get a full size of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and a full size of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. I really think if you have been eyeing up the palette then why not get it, yes it is a lot of money but it is a really nice palette. 

So Kat Von D and Too Faced also made a lip and cheek set together and I will tell you right now I dont think its worth you money. I had my eye on this set for some time but from reviews I watched about it I always thought the Too Faced size which is the cheek size just looked cheap and this is not a cheap set but I saw it was in offer on the Debenhams website so I thought I will get it because I have be eyeing it up for so long now and you get Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the lip side of this set. I have never tried any lip products by Kat Von D but I always wanted to try the Studded Kiss Lipsticks and even thought I really dont like liquid lipsticks I wanted to try the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick just to see what is was like compared to other ones I have tried and I love the colour of this one.

This set comes in a wee make up bag with one side all sparkly and pink with the Too Faced dog called Clover and saying Too Faced and the other side is matte black with Kat Von D's cat called Piaf and saying Kat Von D. This bag is in the shape of a heart.

Kat Von D's Side: On this size there is really nice products with really nice packaging, the Studded Kiss Lipstick and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick just feel like mini sizes of the really thing and I really like how they both look and feel. The Studded Kiss Lipstick is in the colour Muse which is a nude colour and I feel like I can see little bits of glitter in it, Im not a big fan of nude lipsticks but I will by trying this one out so I can see if I want to buy more for the Studded Kiss line. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick comes in XO which is a beautiful deep red colour and even thought I dont like liquid lipstick I cant wait to try this out. Im so happy with this side of the set, I like the fact there is a dark colour and then a more every day colour in here so I think it will be really good for a lot of people.

             XO                                                                Muse     
 Too Faced's Side: This side is were is all goes down hill for this set and its sad because I feel like on the Kat Von D's she put care and thought in to it and the bag this comes in even though Im not a big fan of it I can still till there was time put on to making it look the way they wanted it to look. On this side you get a mini Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder which comes in the colour Rosy Glow and you also get a mini Love Flush Long Lasting Blush in So Happy Together. The packaging for both the blush and highlighter feel cheap like kids make up, this is a high end make up company that made this side I dont expect the packaging to feel like kids make up. The Love Flush Long Lasting Blush is a bit to pink for me and I think might just look a bit weird on my skin tone but it looks like it will be really easy to blend in to the skin. The Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder is a light highlighter, when I first started using highlighters I only liked light ones but now Im a bit highlighting mad but only on my cheek bones so Im hoping this will give me a good highlighting glow and Im really looking forward to trying it out. I dont hate the products you get on the Too Faced side but it just feels very cheap and I know Too Faced is a lot more girly than Kat Von D but I normally really like Too Faced and their packaging. Did they just not care? Or did they really think this was nice? I have no idea but I do know this is really bad for something that costs so much money.

                     So Happy Together                                      Rosy Glow               

Im on the fence about the set, I love the Kat Von D side, I like the bag even though I will probably never use it but the Too Faced side feels like they could not be bothered and I think it lets this set down.

Have you got this make up set? What did you think of it? Leave a comment below to let me know.

Lab With Love Box June 2017

So there is a new monthly beauty box on the scene and this is their first box. Lab with Love is a monthly beauty box for people with eczema, psoriasis, sensitive skin and other skin problems. There is 3 boxes each month that you can pick from which are 

Hydrate: This box would be good for people with dry or sensitive skin.

Protect: This box would be good for people with atopic skin and it will be filled with lots of lovely products that will help protect the skin. It should also help with flaky skin.

Soothe: This box is good for calming angry and red upset skin.

Lab with Love believe that just because you have skin problems that should not stop you from being pampered and trying new products to pamper yourself with. I love this idea, my skin is a lot calmer now than it ever has been so I am so lucky that my skin lets me try new products now, my skin is still dry and has eczema flare ups but nothing like it was a few years again and I cant even remember the last time I had to be covered in bandages to stop me from scratching but I do still remember how it felt using the same old boring creams every day and just wanting to try some new creams that I dont have to be scared to try. Thats why when I heard about this box I knew I really wanted to work with this company because they are doing something thats close to me heart so I sent them an email asking if they would like to work together and I got a reply saying that they are sending me a box and I was obviously not going to say no to that. I was so excited about getting a box but as always dont worry just because Lab with Love sent this box to me and I love the idea of this box that does not mean Im going to say this box is amazing if I dont think the products in the box are very good or worth the money spent on this box. 

After opening the box the first thing I noticed was there is not products info card which I think would be nice, on the Lab with Love website there is lots of info about the products that are in each box for the month but I just think a wee info card would have been nice so you know what the products are, where you can buy them if you are wanting to buy the product after trying after getting the box and how much the product would cost.

Now lets talk about that I found in my box 

Relivio Dry Skin Body Cream: I was happy about getting this because I was almost about to run out for body cream and I was planning on buying some more soon so good timing. This body cream is meant to help restore the skin barrier, its a non-greasy cream which is not sticky and its meant to be absorbed quickly by the skin. I have used this cream a few times since getting it and it has left my skin feeling very soft, it did absorb in to the skin not as quickly as some creams I like but I did not feel like I had to wait to long to put my clothes on after using it. The top of my back has been so itchy, dry and flaky for the last few months and no matter how much cream I have put on it just keeps coming back but since trying the cream the itching has almost completely gone away and the skin it feels so soft and a lot less dry. 

Conscious Skincare Grapefruit Lemon and Cedarwood Body Wash: I find it really hard to find body washes that I like and that dont dry out my skin but on the Lab with Love website it says this body wash has been "designed and carefully blended to work without drying your skin out." Im not very good at tell people what something smells like but the best way I feel like I can for this body wash would be its got a zesty fruity smell which I really like. I have not tried this body wash yet but the scent might not work for sensitive skin. This body wash is vegan, organic and cruelty free. 

Conscious Skincare Sweet Almond Oil: I keep hunting and hoping that one day I will find a facial oil that I like because any facial oils that I have ever tried I normal hate but this oil has no perfume and its rich in Vitamin E so this one might by the facial oil that I have been looking for so Im really looking forward to trying it out. This oil is also vegan and its not tested on animals.

Beauty by Earth Lip Balm: This lip balm just looking like a very simple lip balm but its smells amazing, its smells minty like toothpaste and I really like it. This lip balm contains coconut oil and shea butter to help keep your lips soft and healthy. Its also be certified organic. I use lip balm almost every day and I love the smell of this one so I will be using this.

This box coats £29 or you can subscribe and get 10% off which will then be £26.10 and you will get 4 - 5 full size products in each box.

If you fancy trying out this box then you can get it here and if your wanting to check out Lab with Loves Facebook page then you can do that here.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish

I have been waiting to try Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish for a few years now but I was always to scared to try it because even though everyone loves it I thought it might give me an eczema flare up, why would I think this you might be asking? Well because my skin is very sensitive and very dry and not always but a lot of the time that skin care products are really popular they dont agree with my skin. 

At Christmas time Boots has offers on high end beauty products which Boots calls Boots Star Gift and one of them was the Liz Earle The Botanist's Cabinet gift set which came with Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 150ml, 2 Pure Muslin Cloths, Instant Boost Skin Tonic 50ml, Superskin Concentrate for Night 2ml, Brightening Treatment Mask 15ml, Deep Cleansing Mask 15ml, 2 Sponges and Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask 15ml. Boots says this gift set is normal £60 but because its a Boots Star Gift I bought it for £30 which I think was really good, I did do a review on the gift set and about what I think of the Boots Star Gift idea which you can read here if you want to.

 Sadly not long after getting this gift set I received an email from Boots saying that there has been a product recall for this gift set which cant be help sometime these things happen but if I had given this to someone as a Christmas present and they were really enjoying using it then I would have felt well bad, I totally get mistakes happen and I really dont mind so much since I got it for myself though. 

The reason the gift set was recalled was because there was small traces of glass found in the Superskin Concentrate for Night but it was only found it one batch but they were recalling 3 different batches just encase. So did I return my Liz Earle The Botanist's Cabinet gift set? Well no because I dont like face oils normally and I was probably never going to try the Superskin Concentrate for Night and out of everything that was in the gift set I was least excited about it. 

The reason I bought the gift set for myself was so I could finally try the Cleanse & Polish and I could try a few other skin care products for Liz Earle at the same time, I just though it was a really good starter kit for people that have never tried anything for Liz Earle before.

To use the cleanser you massage 1 or 2 pumps on to dry skin, I normal find 1 pump is a nice amount for me then you rinse the muslin cloth with warm water and gently remove the cleanser with the damp muslin cloth. I found the first time I used the muslin cloth it was to hard on my skin but the more I have used it the more I have learned to be softer when using it. 

This cleanser feels creamy and it feels really nice when your massaging it on the skin, normally all cleansers that give a deep cleanse leave my skin feeling so dry and horrible like the life has been taken away from it but this cleanser did not feel like that. I dont think this cleanser made my skin feel hydrated like the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm would but this cleanser made me feel like my skin was getting a really nice deep clean without it being murdered. 

My eyes can be very picky about what I use on them or even near them, if I use something they dont like then they will soon tell me with pain lots of pain and they will go really red and start to run but this cleanser did not make my eyes hurt or go red or get runny.

This cleanser smells really good like toothpaste which might sound weird but its really nice and minty and every time I smell it I just think of toothpaste and I really like it. I also really like the packaging, it dose not feel cheap but nice and secure so if you have it in your suitcase it should be fine. I think the pump is a good idea but the only down side I can think of is how do you tell when its almost finished so you can go and buy more. 

I really like this cleanser and I can see why so meany other people love it too, I would totally buy this again because I love how my skin looks and feels after I use it and if my skin ever feels dry after using this a good face cream normal fixes that problem but it never makes it feel so dry that I would not use it again.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Haul

Hey guys and girls, hope your all well today. Todays post is going to be about my very first Anastasia Beverly Hills haul, thats right I have never bought anything from this brand before but thats because I live in the UK and you cant just pop in to a shop and buy things from this brand, as fair as I know if you are in the UK and you want to buy something from Anastasia Beverly Hills then you need to go online but if Im wrong then please feel free to leave a comment below letting me know.

This is just a very small haul from Anastasia Beverly Hills only because its a high end company with high end prices and I did not want to buy to much and not like any of it because it would feel like a bit of a waste of money so I went for the one thing I feel like I hear everyone talk about.

Dipbrow Pomade - Blonde (£18): Ye thats right you guessed it or maybe the picture at the top for this post gave it away anyway I bought the much loved brow pomade which I have been wanting for so long now. I bought this in the colour blonde which is a really nice match for me, it looks natural and I really like it. I have tried this about 2 times as I write this post and I can see why so meany people love it, you only need to use a very small amount and a little goes a very long way also I have not had any problems yet with it smudging. 

Duo Brush 12 (£17): I was going to say I dont normal buy but really I never buy high end brushes because I always think are they really worth the money? I have got some really lovely brushes that were so cheap but to get the free delivery to the UK I had to spend over £25 which I dont think is that bad really so since I was buying the brow pomade I thought it would make since to get this to. Its a really nice brush, the end with the bristles is nice a fine so you can get a really good sharp line so you can get your brows looking just how you like them.

So thats my very small haul from Anastasia Beverly Hills. After trying out brow pomade and the brush I know I will be trying out some more products from this brand.

If there is any products you love and think I should check out from this brand then comment below to let me know.

If you want to ask me anything about the shipping to the UK or anything about what I bought then please leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Bee Good Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliator

I got this Bee Good Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliatorn in my Glossybox for October 2016 and I was really happy about getting it because I got the Bee Good Youth Enhancing Plump & Firm Moisturiser in my May 2016 Glossybox and I really enjoyed using it, I feel like it did make my skin look more plump and it was really hydrating. 

This facial exfoliate is meant to hydrate the skin and calm congested and dull skin. I thought this facial exfoliate is talking my language since I have very dry skin and its been looking really dull and sad the last few weeks.

I sometimes find facial exfoliate to be to soft and I dont feel like they are doing anything to my skin but not this one, this one feels really nice, the scrubby bits that are in it are not to light or to soft so you can feel them doing something but I dont find them to be to harsh either so they are not hurting my skin. 

I normally massage some on to my face which will be dry, then add a little bit of water if needed and massage till I feel like its done its job then I gently remove it with a wet sponge that I got in my Liz Earle gift set at Christmas. I love how my skin looks and feels after using this, my skin looking so much more alive, it looks hydrated and smoother. 

This is a creamy facial exfoliate with nice scrubby bits that you can feel working and it does not dry out my very dry skin or make my skin feel tight and horrible. I love the smell of it to, now I would try and tell you what it smells like but I am the worst at describing a smell so just trust me its lovely. 

Have you tried Bee Good Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliator? Let me know it the comments below. If there is anything you would like to ask me about product then please feel free to leave it in the comments and I will back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks so much for checking out this review today.

Garnier SkinActive Honey Flower Range

Garnier has brought out a new line of skin care products for dry skin, this line is called Honey Flower and there is 4 products in this range and Im going to be review all 4 products for you today. This new skin care line from Garnier is made from 96% natural ingredients and on the back on the bottles it says what all the ingredients are so its not just all random words and you really know whats in the product. 

Now to be completely clear and honest with you guys and girls Garnier sent this to me but this is not a sponsored review and my thoughts are my own and what Im going to tell you about these 4 products is really what I thought about them.

Nourishing Botanical Cleansing Milk: Garnier says to soak a cotton pad with this cleansing milk then use the soaked cotton pad to remove your make up but I found this is not the best to remove mascara, it will take all the mascara off but it takes a bit longer than a cleansing water would and I felt like I had to rub my eyes with the soaked cotton pad to get the mascara off. The way I have started using this cleansing milk is taking my make up off with a cleansing water and then using this cleansing milk by massaging it on to the skin then removing it with a wet muslin cloth. I have not found this cleansing milk to be hydrating but I have not found it to be drying my very dry skin out too. 

Nourishing Botanical Toner: My hopes for liking this were not very high because I have never found a toner that I really like, I find them all to be to drying for my skin and I was almost thinking about not even trying this but I thought I am trying the other 3 products from the new range so I will give it a go and I was really surprised because I like this, I have found a toner I like at long last. This is a really nice toner for dry and very dry skin, I have not felt like its been drying out my skin when I use it and Im so happy I did try it.

Nourishing Botanical Gel Wash: Well this gel wash is a liar. Why? You might be asking. Well my beautiful readers because on the bottle of this gel wash it says its for dry to very dry skin. I used this as it says to use it on the back of the bottle and this was horrible to use. Firstly as Im using it some got in my eye which was not good because it hurt so bad like really really bad, even if I did like this gel wash the pain I had from getting it in my eye would make me not want to use this ever again. Secondly after I had washed this off my face and stopped my poor eye from hurting so much and before I had a chance to put cream on my skin had became really dry and flaky and tight. But if you have oily skin and you dont mind your eyes hurting then you might like this or if you have oily skin and try this you could just try and be more careful than me and avoid you eye area. 

Nourishing Botanical Day Cream: Leaving the best till last, this day cream is the star of this new range, if your going to only try one thing for this range this has to be it. I dont think there is one thing about this cream I dont like, its my new favourite day cream. I normal find day creams to be a bit rubbish and I use night creams in the day a lot of the time because I find day creams to be heavy and greasy and they sit on top of the skin or they are to little and soak right in to the skin and they feel like they are doing nothing. This day cream does not feel to heavy or to little and I feel like you dont need to use to much as well. It soaks in to the skin when you put this on but you can still feel like you put cream on, its leaves my skin looking plump and hydrated all day and I feel like my skin is looking better and better every day I use this. I have not found it to hurt my eyes or make them runny so even my eyes like it. I also like the fact that its in a tube so if I feel like my skin is really dry one day I can pop it in to my hand bag. 

In this new range there is a few hits and few misses and you can probably guess what they both are but the is also one very big star. Im so pleased I got to try out the new range from Garnier because I have now found my favourite new day cream. 

Have you tried this new Honey Flower range from Garnier? Let me know what you think of it in the comments below. Also if you want to ask me anything about the new range then please feel free to do so in the comment.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Deep Moisture Body Lotion

For some reason I have never tried any skin care products from Neutrogena before but when I was on the Boots website I came across this Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Deep Moisture Body Lotion. The one I bought was for dry and sensitive skin and this cream is also fragrance free, on the boots website you can also get this cream which is just for dry skin so Im thinking that one will have a fragrance.

The size I bought was 250ml but you can also get it in a 400ml size, the 250ml size comes with a pump so Im guess the 400ml will also come with a pump. I really like the fact that they have put a pump with this cream because its a thick cream so the pump helps to get the cream out easily.

One of the claims for this cream is that it will absorb immediately and I normal take this claim very seriously because when you have dry skin and you use thick moisturising cream its a pain having to wait for the cream to soak in to the skin when your wanting to get ready and if you dont wait for the cream to soak in then it will end up all over your clothes. Nightmare! Neutrogena is not lying with this claim however this thick cream soaks in to the skin rather fast and leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturised with out feeling greasy.

The other claim about this cream being suitable for sensitive skin is another claim I take seriously because of my eczema and I have found some skin creams in the past that I have tried that say they are for sensitive skin and they make my eczema worse. This cream got it right again, I did not find this cream making my skin worse. I also noticed this cream left my skin feeling hydrated all through the day. 

This cream does what is says and it does it well too, I really like this cream and would happily buy it again. I think if you have dry and sensitive skin and are looking for a cream that works then this might just be it.

Have you tried this cream? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments below.

Soap & Glory Haul

I have only tried a couple of make-up things from Soap & Glory which are the Archery Brow Pencil and the Archery Brow Sculpting Crayon & Gel which are both really nice, if I had to pick one I would probably go for the Archery Brow Sculpting Crayon & Gel because its really handy if your going travelling since its a 2 in 1 and the crayon itself is really easy to use and builds really nicely also the gel is really good, it keeps your brows in place all day. The only down side to the gel is that if you use to much it can make your brows feel a bit hard and crunchy but as long as you only use a little its really nice. 

I have been wanting to try more from Soap & Glory for some time now so I thought I would only get a few things to see what I thought, I did not want to get lots of products and then find out they are rubbish but since I really like the 2 brow products that I have tried I was thinking I was going to really like what I bought.

Glow All Out: This is a soft and creamy powder highlighter, one minute I think its pink then I think I can see peach in it so Im going to say its peachy pink. Its got a really nice glow to it which I think will be really nice on pale people like myself.

Love At First Blush: I really like highlighter and blusher all in ones because Im always running late you would think since Im in my late 20s I would have worked out how to be on time but no its just something Im not very good at, Im so bad at being on time its now a running joke with my friends and sometimes I wonder how I even make it to work on time well just on time. This is a really nice pink shimmering blush, I dont think this blusher will stop me from being late all the time but I might just be a little less late. Probably not this blush is just a blusher and its not magic but at lest I wont have to spend time putting blusher and highlight on since this does both.

    Glow All Out                                                                          Love At First Blush
      Glow All Out                                  Love At First Blush
Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lip: Ok I have done it again I have bought 2 lip products that are almost the same colour but I did need more nudes cause I dont have alot of nude shades. This is a matte lip stick but the name gave that away I thinking, I have not tried it yet but Im looking forward to trying it. The colour is really nice its a nude mixed with berry and the colour pay out looking like it will be really good.

Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Shine Lacquer: If Im buying somethings to try from Soap & Glory I thought I have to get Sexy Mother Pucker since I feel like I hear so meany people talk about it. I have tried it a couple of time since I got it, Im not ready to do a review for it but I can say I really like the brush which a fat of 2 sides and thin on the other 2 sides. Its more of a brown nude instead of a berry nude and its just feels like normal lip gloss with a good colour pay out. From the few times I have tried this I have not be wowed by it but there is still time.

                  Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lip             Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Shine Lacquer   
              Choccoberry                                        Charm Offensive          
So thats everything I got from my Soap & Glory haul, its just a wee haul to try out a few more products. Im pleased I bought the Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lip and Sexy Mother Pucker Shine Lip Lacquer to try but its the highlighter and blusher that I might be in love with.

Glossybox UK March 2017

With this months box we are back to the normal pink style of box and Glossybox was putting a Sleek palette in to each box which Glossybox let us pick the colour we wanted and Im so happy with what I picked but more on that later. In this months box I received 3 full sized products and 2 sample sized products.

Now let me tell you what I got.

Oolution - Eye Love (£30): This eye cream is 100% natural, its meant to help fight dark circles and reduce puffiness. Glossybox says to "apply a rice-grain sized amount around your eyes am and pm, avoiding the lower and upper eyelids." I have really dry skin and I need to put cream on my lower and upper eyelids, also its an eye cream so why cant you put it on your eyelids? If anyone knows please comment below cause I find that a bit weird. 

Sleek - Eye & Cheek Palette (£10): So the colour of palette that I picked was called See You At Midnight and I love it, I cant comment about what the eye shadows are like yet cause I have not tried them but I really like the colours. This palette looks really nice and I cant wait to try it. Glossybox says this palette has 4 eye shadows and 2 cheek colours but I think they all would make nice eye shadow colours.

This Works - In Transit Camera Close-Up (£30): Im so happy to get this because I really like the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray that This works makes. This is a mask, moisturiser and primer all in one which is meant to help balances, plump and brighten the skin. My dry skin has been looking a lot more dull than normal so this might just be what its looking for. 

Schwarzkopf - BlondMe Keratin Restore Bonding Shampoo (£13): This shampoo which has keratin in it is meant to help make the hair stronger, smoother and less damaged. I have never tried a keratin shampoo before so this is a very good size to try to see if I like it. Also my Glossybox smells of this shampoo but its not been leaking so Im guessing my hair will be smell very lovely after using this.

Stripped Skin Care - Rosehip & Mandarin Moisturising Oil (£16): On the info sheet that you get with your box this does not say its a full size so if this is just a sample size I think this is a really good size. I love the packaging for this product, its just a bit different. This all natural and light weight oil is meant to leave your skin nourished and moisturised. 

I think this is a really good box, Im so happy about the Sleek Eye & Cheek Palette and the This Works primer and Im interested to see what the Schwarzkopf Keratin Shampoo will do to my curly dry hair. I think the 2 sample sizes which are the This Works primer and the Stripped Moisturising Oil are really good size samples.

What do you think of this box? Did you get a box this month from Glossybox? Let me know in the comment below and tell me what you got.

Birchbox UK March 2017

Im going to start this post on a downer and Im sorry but I thought you guys and girls should get an update about the broken eye shadows that I got in last months Birchbox, if you read my post for last month then you would know that I really liked the box and everything in the box would be something I would be really happy to try. Before I made that post I had sent an e-mail to Birchbox letting them know that my eye shadows arrived broken and this is what they e-mailed me back with "I'm so sorry to hear about your damaged sample. Today I have ordered a replacement for you this will process over the next 48 hours and then be shipped to be received in 3-5 working days from there. We appreciate your patience as your replacement item makes its way to you. Our apologies again for the trouble and any disappointment caused here." So thats fine I was happy with that, they are sending a new one out or are they? The reply I got from Birchbox was on Tuesday 14th February and then I got my March Birchbox on Tuesday 14th March but still no replacement eye shadows so this was a month I waited patiently when I should of got them in about a week. I sent Birchbox another e-mail letting them know I had not yet received the new eye shadows and that Im not happy and that I think the customer service was really bad. This is what I got back from Birchbox "I'm so sorry to hear that you still have not received your damaged sample replacement. Today I have ordered a replacement for you this will process over the next 48 hours and then be shipped to be received in 3-5 working days from there. We appreciate your patience as your replacement item makes its way to you. Our apologies again for the trouble and any disappointment caused here." Sounds very much like the first reply dont you think? Birchbox in meant to be the UKs biggest monthly beauty box so you would think they would have good customer service but I would not say this was good customer service. I will keep you all update about what happens with this.

Now after that little update lets talk about this months Birchbox. So Birchbox this month have gone back to the start to celebrate the original Bircbox with the original design and the original size, this box also has the hand Birchbox bag again.

In the box I have 6 products but I only have 5 on the info sheet so not sure why I have 6 but thanks. Out of the 6 products 1 was full size and 2 are Birchbox exclusives.

Benefit - They're Real! Double the Lip in Pink Thrills (£16.50): This is meant to be a lipstick and lip liner all in one, Im not that wowed by it and I dont know if I will try it. When Benefit started selling these I did think about getting one to try but I did not because I dont need a lipstick and lip liner all in one. Im happy just using lipstick that 1 colour not 2.

Balance Me - Instant Lift Primer (£22): This looks like it would be a really nice primer to try as it has hyaluronic acid in it and since I have dry skin I love hyaluronic acid but its empty, Im not joking, I have been sent an empty product. Like really what the hell is going on with Birchbox right now bad customer service, broken products and now empty products. 

Laqa & Co - Eyelighter on Co-Pilot (£??.??): Birchbox calls this an innovative product but to me it looks like a mini highlighter, it also says on its website it costs £9.50 but on the info sheet its says £10.50 so Im guessing £9.50 then? This is the full size product and its 1 of the Birchbox exlusives. Its got a cream texture but I think it will be hard to blend it, its a very light highlighter which I think it would be good for a natural looks if you can get it to blend.

Amika - The Shield Style Extending Spray (£20): This is meant to help protect your hair from UV rays, heat, pollution and frizz. Your meant to spray on to damp or dry hair before heat styling. I have curly hair so I dont really heat style my hair that much, I will give this a try but I cant see myself buying a full size. 

Marcelle - Gentle Make-up Remover (£14.50): This is the other product that is a Birchbox Exclusive and this is the product Im most happy about getting. This is also a sample size and I think its a really nice size for being a sample. Best product in this whole box but I still need to try it.

Korres - Santorini Vine Shower Gel (£8): This is the product thats not on the info sheet so I dont know if I was meant to get it because of the broken eye shadows last month or if it was a mistake, I have no idea. I love the smell of this, its so nice and Im looking forward to trying it. I think I might have got this before in another box but I cant remember trying it but I can be a wee bit scared to try new shower gels when I have a eczema flare up so that might be why I did not try it before.

I think the best products that are in my box this month are the make-up remover and the shower gel. I really like the fact they went back to the start with this box but come on Birchbox getting an empty product thats just not good enough.

What did you think of this months box? Did you love it or hate it? Please let me know in the comments below.

Boots Haul

When I was feeling very ill the other week I needed some retail therapy to try and make me feel better because shopping is going to help get rid of the flu or I would like to think that anyway but I was to ill to go shopping to I bought a few things on the Boots website. 

I bought a few things that I was needing like hair spray and hairbands but I did get a few treats. 

Boots Essentials Hair Spray (2 for £3): I bought the boots hair spray to try it out because I have tried the Boots Essential Styling Mousse for curly hair and its really good, if you have curly hair you should give it a go. The mousse never leaves my hair feeling crunchy, keeps the curl looking lovely all day and its so cheap for how good it is. This hair spray costs £1.99 but when I bought it the hair spray was on offer 2 for £3 so yes I bought 2 of them. 

Boots Thick Red and Black Hairbands (£1): I was running out of hairbands so I think I would get some more since I was doing some shopping, I normal always get black hairbands but my hair is coloured red right now so when I saw the red ones too I had to get them. I dont think I have tried the boots hairbands out before but Im sure they just as good as any other.

Boots Black Kirby Grips (£2.50): Got some kirby grips cause I have lost all my other ones, Im always losing kirby grips and Im sure I cant be the only one.

Scunci Clear Polybands (£2.99): Thought I would get these for a bit of fun and to try out new hair styles.

Boots Ingredients Face Mask - Super Hyaluronic (2 for £3): I have really dry skin so when I saw this new face mask from Boots I thought I would give it a go plus it was on offer when I got it which was nice. I will do a full review on this face mask but I did try it the other night and really liked it, my skin felt so soft and hydrated. I think this face mask is brill and a bargain. 

Oh K Face Mask - Avocado (£3): I may have got this face mask just because it looks cute but also cause avocados are meant to be good for the skin. I have not tried this one yet so I cant say if its good or not.

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner (£10.99): I bought this conditioner because its for curly and thick hair and since my hair is both I thought its worth a try. I would not normal spend £10.99 on a conditioner but if it makes my curls look good then its worth it.

Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-In Conditioner (£12.99): This is a cream leave-in conditioner instead of a spray and it looks like a really good size. It smell really good and Im looking forward to trying it.

Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Colour and Primer and Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour and Primer (£16.00): When I ordered these I did not realise these we the same colour. I wanted to try the lacquer and matte lip colours from the colour pop line from Clinique because I have tried the cream one which I really like. 

Clinique High Impact Mascara & Chubby Highlighter Deluxe Samples (Free): I got these free because I bought 2 Clinique products. I think I have tried this mascara before but it was some time ago so it will be nice to try it again. The highlighter it a really nice colour and Im really looking forward to trying it.

 Have you tried the Shea Moisture Conditioners and the Clinique Colour Pop lippys? Lets me know what you thought of them in the comments below.

Dead Sea Natural Mineral Shower Cream

I first did a review on the Dead Sea Body Scrub with Frankincense Oil and fell totally in love with it and I still use that body scrub because it just leaves my dry skin feeling so amazing. Thats why I wanted to try the shower cream to see if I will love it just as much.

Normally when I have a shower my very dry skin just feels even more dry when I get out of the shower and its not nice at all but when I use this shower cream I feel like my skin is being cleaned well but its not being striped of its natural oils so its not becoming more dry. With the body scrub I feel like it adds moisture to my skin but I dont feel like the shower cream adds moisture but unlike most shower creams and shower gels I dont feel like its taking any moisture away.

 This shower cream foams up a wee bit but not as much as other shower creams do which is good because the chemicals that are added to shower creams and shower gels to make them foam up are not good for the skin and they are really bad for dry skin because the chemicals they add to make it foam up are also drying out your skin. 

The colour of the shower cream is almost clear its just got a wee hint of yellow in it which again is really good because the more chemicals they use to colour shower creams and shower gels the more its going to hurt your skin. It has a light scent to it, its not to strong and I really like it.

This shower cream feels more like a gel than a cream and the packaging could be better but this shower cream/gel is one of the nicest I have tried for my dry eczema prone skin and even if you have normal skin I think you would love this shower cream too.

Have you tried this shower cream? What did you think of it? Leave a comment below to let me know.

Thanks for checking out this review today.
