IMG_20170521_160451_824

This is the Deluxe edition to the black look incredible beauty box, This one is £35 per month and as with the black box can be cancelled at anytime. The Deluxe box is a high-end branded box with the top names in the beauty world featuring month to month. may’s edit was an impressive one.

So this may deluxe box was impressive. I can’t believe were into June already I’m watching the days go by through my window.

Mine and my daughter’s favourite product as you might have seen it was featured in last week’s ‘Friday Favourites’

Too Faced – Totally Cute Eyeshadow Palette (Limited Edition) – RRP £32

Here’s the link to my Friday Favourites post where i review this gorgeous palette.

Totally Cute Palette

Dior – Diorshow- Khol eyeliner RRP £19.50

Loving this it is a gorgeous true black and is so smooth and creamy and so easy to apply, It is best for the water line and the tight line. It can also be used as a base all over the lid under eye shadow for a bold look and professional hold. It really makes the eyes brighter and it lasts for hours mine lasted 8 hours or so. The best kohl I’ve had in a very long time.

Laura Geller – Lip Crayon – RRP £17.99

A gorgeous matte red lip crayon which isn’t really bright and in your face, it’s very smooth to apply and only needs one sweep across the lips.  I like how subtle it is and it lasts hours. It’s lovely and creamy on the lips, and even though it’s a matte crayon it doesn’t dry the lips. I’ve used it alone and also over the nyx lip primer when my lips were dry.

No7 – Completely Quenched body lotion – RRP £12

I’m a huge fan of the No7 brand and so I knew that I’d be impressed.  A luxurious and lightweight cream which nourishes, moisturises, evens out skin texture and hydrates the skin. Leaving the skin feeling refreshed, silky smooth and looking radiant with 48 hour protection.

Lancome – Le Sourcil Pro Eye Pencil duo. RRP £19.99

This double ended pencil has a brow liner on one end with fills in the sparse area’s and gives the brows depth, definition and helps to create the perfect shape. Then use the highlighter on the other end to sharpen the brows and enhance the arches of the brows and brightens up the eyes.  I love this it makes doing the brows so much easier.

I’m definitely happy with all of the products and pleased that I’m able to use them all. This box was worth a huge £102 and for £35 that is a huge bargain. I’m really looking forward to seeing the June Edition of both boxes. Only a few days away

Let me know what you think hope you have an awesome weekend. Thanks for checking out my blog.

Look Incredible Unboxing & Review May

Look Incredible

Beauty Box 

IMG_20170514_103000_662.jpg

This is the Look Incredible standard box which is £25 per month all in.  Each month there are 5 beauty products from big brands and each box has a value over £70.  You pay month by month and can cancel at anytime, but what’s unique about Look incredible is that you can choose to receive your box on certain months just by contacting them. Which is fantastic. Making it fit in with you and your budget.

This month is another great edit with a nice selection of products.

Starting with my favourite.

Nails Inc London – Prince’s Square – RRP £15

20170531_172238

I love Nails Inc nail polishes and was so happy to see it in this months box. A beautiful nude pink colour. It’s Ergonomically designed to work with the shape of the nails and because of the wide flat brush you need fewer strokes and get a professional looking manicure every time. Small nails only need one stroke of the brush and my thumb only needs two. I know I’ll have salon quality nails everytime.

Ciate – Glow to illuminating blush. RRP £22.

IMG_20170514_121908_989

This has to be the prettiest blush i have ever seen. This has a unique proprietary blend, Prisma technology combines silky matte blush with ultra fine powder highlighter. Giving it a marbled finish.  This blush is so light and silky on the skin and gives the most beautiful glow. Lasting up to 12 hours it has real staying power. This is lovely to apply without makeup and give a natural looking glow. You can also build it up to gain the intensity you require. I love that it’s both a highlighter and blush combined.  If you want to add more highlight on It’s own just use a small highlighter brush to pick up the highlight.  It’s really beautiful.

Estee Lauder – Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion 250 Quiet Riot. RRP £17.

20170531_172446

This is the most beautiful red. This is a luxurious liquid lipstick, which is highly moisturising and doesn’t leave the lips sticky. With a unique curved applicator it glides across the lips with ease, but its easy yo have too much on the applicator. It gives a beautiful bold colour which with a satin-matte finish it lasts up to 8 hours. It does bleed a little but that’s without a lip liner. 

Lord & berry – Magic brow pencil – #1704 Wonderful. RRP £14

20170531_172135

This is a two colour marbled effect brow pencil which is highly pigmented and enhances and defines the brows to give a natural look.  Using small strokes and also shading to get definition then use the spooly applicator on the other end to comb the colour through the brows. Used lightly this can work with most hair colours. Build up the colour bit by bit using light strokes to achieve the brows you want.  It’s great for popping in your bag for throughout the day.

St Tropez – gradual tan Four in One – Tan, Tone, Firm and Moisturise. RRP £16

20170531_172013

This is a product that i was happy to see with the hope of finally hiding my milk bottle legs or as I used to say (moon burn).

I haven’t used fake tan since 2005 and that was the same sort of tanning product as this so I was happy and knew how it worked.  I applied this to one leg first and then I would be able to see the comparison between both legs. It’s very moisturising. It did give a tanned look but on my skin it had more of a yellow tone to it. I tried on my arms and chest and it still looked yellow so this product is my for me and so I’ll be passing this onto whoever would like it. Such a shame though.

This is my 4th Look Incredible Beauty Box and with a value of £84 this month. I’m very impressed.  I’m looking forward to my June box arriving.  The May Deluxe box review will be posted tomorrow.

This month has been a fantastic month for beauty boxes and unfortunately the next few months will only be reviews on the two look incredible boxes.

I hope you had a fantastic month thanks for popping by and checking out my blog. Let me know what beauty box you preferred this month.

Have a beautiful day remember to smile because we’re all beautiful 💞

This months Glossybox was a hit for me I’m really pleased with what I got.

My favourite out of them all has to be…

Scrub Love – Active Charcoal Body Scrub.

20170522_150214.jpg

This charcoal-based body scrub is 100% natural, vegan and vegetarian friendly.  It’s a fantastic body scrub exfoliating and absorbs all the daily pollutants and impurities from the skin and with Avocado and Aloe Vera it’s also soothing on your skin and hydrating and deep cleansing leaving your body feeling brand new. This smells gorgeous and has a relaxing tone which I love.  This can get messy so I put mine into a jar with a lid and I use a small spoon to get out what I need.  I recommend this and I will be buying more of these and also the coffee scrubs. Full Size  (rrp £13.95 @ scrublove.com)

Dr PawPaw – Original Balm.

This is an amazing product one of which you wonder where it’s been all your life.  A multipurpose balm which is a natural remedy for things like happy rash, sun burn and skin rashes soothing and healing the skin while protecting it.  It’s suitable for dry lips, skin, nails and even as a hair conditioner this really does do it all.  You can use it before you put makeup on and it’s perfect for under matte lipsticks preventing your lips from drying out. It’s also fragrance free and a little goes along way. This really is one if those products that everyone should have, its suitable for all ages and I can’t believe ive not bought it before. I recommend this to everyone and it’s a great price. Full Size (rrp £6.95 @ drpawpaw.com)

Ruby – Powder Blush in Coral.

I love this blush, The powder is so silky and the coral adds a gorgeous colour to your cheeks.  I’ve also pared this with the Dr PawPaw balm to add a pretty sheer coral colour to my lips. It looks really pretty as an eye shadow too. Add a touch of colour to your cheeks and add a clear lip gloss to your lips and a touch of brown/black mascara to create a beautiful no make up look. Perfect for the summer. Full Size (rrp €14.99 @ shopruby.ie)

Caudalie – Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet.

I was so pleased that this is in my box, I suffer with dry sensitive skin and this gel/cream was made for that. It changes to water when applied to the skin and feels so soft and light and also soothing on my rash.  It hydrates, moisturises and strengthens the skin.  With noticeable results this is a product that I will be purchasing again. This was a 10ml travel size (rrp £23 Full Size 40ml @ uk.caudalie.com)

Last we have a product that i have not been able to try yet. So I will have to update this part as soon as I’ve used them. So I will just give a little bit of info on the product.

Andmetics – Brow Wax Strips.

These cold was strips remove hairs from the roots for 4 weeks and they have markers which you line up you’ll have perfect brows for weeks. No pain from plucking and that worry of over plucking (which I have done loads). They only take 2 minutes and they can also be used on toes, ears, top lip and between the brows on the nose.  (Full Size £8 @ andmetics.com)

As soon as I’ve tried these I will add my review.

So this month has matched my beauty profile perfectly, I’m really impressed and I’m really enjoying using the products.

Birchbox Review February 2017

BirchBox Feb 2017 Review

IMG_20170228_125745

Russet Foliage  Inspired by changing seasons

So even though it’s now april i thought id share my February Birchbox review.

Birchbox is another monthly subscription box, Each month you’ll recieve 5 beauty products some full-size some more of a travel size which are chosen to suit your beauty profile. It costs £10 plus £2.95 P&P you can cancel at anytime no commitment, or you can choose to subscribe for 6 months which is £60 plus P&P each month, or yearly for £100 plus P&P, this option gives you 2 free boxes

This was the 1st birchbox i had received and wow i loved it,  I’m very impressed with Birchbox so pleased i subscribed.

February Birchbox did a collab with the fantastic British stationary company Papier  and they designed two boxes,  they were both beautiful and we were able to choose the box we wanted i chose the red box as at the time we had red decor in our bedroom. The other box was green ill share a picture at the end.

Inside this months box was 5 fantastic items that i love and use regularly so here’s what was in my box.

1. Nuxe,  Huile Prodigieuse   With six essential oils and vitamin E, Use this multi-purpose oil to hydrate and restore body, face and your hair just by smoothing a few drops over your face, body or dry hair.

Screenshot_20170409-015313.png

I absolutely love this oil,  I didn’t think id like it but its fantastic i have a lot of dry skin due to eczema and psoriasis and also my medication and it was only a few days of use and i noticed how different my skin was, i didn’t have as much dryness and it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin.   I definitely recommend this oil its part of my skin care routine now also you don’t need to use a lot,  i hold my finger over the bottle and just shake it and use the oil that goes onto my finger,   unlike my daughter who poured it into her hand.

2.  Keeome, Hydration Mask Therapy,  Has a hydrating blend of vitamins and mulberry extracts that sink straight into tired skin,  This mask revitalises the skin in just a few minutes. This was a single mask.

20170228_124920

I really liked this mask,  it really is a lovely treat for your skin and just what i needed. I did have to put a towel all around me (I wasn’t able to move) The sheet was dripping all over and was absolutely soaking wet.  I did remove loads of excess, The mask really softened and smoothed out my skin and made my face feel fab,  The excess i rubbed off i used on my neck.  It’s definitely a treat and if it wasn’t so expensive for my budget id be buying more.  They’re RRP £66 for 6.   If your subscribed to Birchbox they’re just £29 for 6 for a limited time, that’s a better price and a lot more affordable for me.

3.  Beaver Professional, Daily Moisture Conditioning Spray. This detangles and nourishes frazzled tired hair, with a herbal blend and nutrient rich formula it injects moisture into the hair. Use it on damp hair and style.

20170228_124846

I don’t use this very often but thats due to my scalp im not able to,  i have used it on my daughters hair and it gave her highlighted hair a lovely shine.

4. Pop Beauty,  Bright Up Your Life Eyeshadow Trio In Champagne. These silky shades are the perfect shades to create a gorgeous smokey eye oor even a pretty natural look.

IMG_20170228_125946

These eye shadows are really pretty the lightest shade doesn’t show too well on my pale skin but works over primer or concealer to stop creasing, I was able to create a very pretty smokey eye with these shades and also a very natural look by just using the lighter two shades,  they blend well and perfect for popping in your overnight bag or even just your handbag along with the spectrum brush you can go from day to night just by smoking the eye.

5.  Spectrum Collections,  Marbleous C06 Tulip Eye Contour Brush.

IMG_20170228_130010

This is my favourite item in the box,  I absoloutly love this brush its super soft,  The bristles are packed in nicely and you can do all of youre eyeshadow with this one brush,  Its great with packing the colour on and makes blending really easy.  Im also in love with the white and rose gold.  Im saving up for the full set because theyre fantastic.  these are the best brushes ive ever used and they don’t make my skin sore like the Rio Professional set i had due to my fibro my skin gets sore really easy and so im down to 4 brushes now. My other 3 are No7 Brushes.   If i wasn’t saving to have adaptions to my car then id already have a set.

Free Gift is Smith & Cults The Shinning Lip Lacquer

IMG_20170301_220115_218This is a gorgeous colour i really like it,  it makes your lips look like ice and the colour is very nude perfect for day and a subtle lip at night with a bold eye.  I don’t find it sticky either its also lovely over a matte lippy if you want to give it a shine.

Overall this box is definitely a hit,  I couldn’t be happier and ive discovered products i didn’t know about and the best brush ive ever used.

My 1st Beauty Box Review. Look Incredible February Edition 2017

Look Incredible February Edition 2017

img_20170222_035522_402

So here’s my first  beauty box,  I decided as im new to the awesome beauty world and didnt know much about it anymore id buy a subscription beautybox.

Look incredible really appealed to me after seeing reviews.

Each month costs £18.99 plus £2.50 p&p. This beautybox sets itself apart from a lot of the others as it has 5 full size items each month from brands you can find on the high street plus up and coming brands.

Everyone gets the same in their boxes unless you choose the deluxe box which is £35.00 which has 5 full size products in from high end brands like mac and Nars etc.

1. Studio10 Brow Lift Perfecting £22.00 Great for a natural looking brow, it is double ended. Ash colour which mimics hair the colour adjusts depending on how hard you press and how much you build it up. The opposite end is a creamy natural skin coloured highlighter to define and sharpen the brows.

IMG_20170216_113731

It’s the first time id ever had an eyebrow pencil before, i was nervous about using it but i was really happy with the way it applies.  If you use it lightly it works really well with light brows like mine where you cant even see half.  I managed to get a good first brow, and was pleased with myself. It is great because the more pressure you use the darker it applies. Very nice start to the box.

2. Korres Mango butter lipstick £9.99  Treat your lips to a hint of colour, buttery soft and incredibly moisturising creating a high shine but sheer look. it hydrates the lips even in the harshest weather.

IMG_20170216_113624

This is a lovely sheer lipstick which is can be subtle if you prefer a natural look with no makeup,  it’s very hydrating and leaves your lips feeling lovely and soft while looking great.

3. Nails Inc westbourne park NailKail £15.00  NailKale is the is the first nail care range formulated with anti-oxidant kale which nourishes, protects and strengthens. Also includes nails Inc’s regenerating complex which boosts the production of keratin for harder, stronger and healthy nails.

20170216_105236

I fell in love with it as soon as i saw it. I’ve never bought nail polish costing more than £10 before and i could never get my nails to look good without streaks and smudges.  But i applied this without a single streak or smudge mark. Even using my left hand and the fact that my hands shake a lot It’s a fantastic polish that results in professional looking nails. Very very happy and my favorite nail polish now.

4. Fresh Face Essence With Green Coffee £20.00 Revitalising and hydrating with antioxidant rich green coffee which shields and rejuvenates skin cells. Its brightening micros spheres smooth and tone the skin also forms a protective micro network on the surface of the skin to prevent dehydration.

20170406_175814

This is a fantastic product I really love how it leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean,  i have really sensitive skin and suffer with psoriasis and eczema and so i have a lot of dry flakey skin on my face.  I have been using Soap and Glory scrub which is great for removing all the dead dry flaky skin but it can leave my skin sore. Now I’ve included this into my skin care routine i don’t need to use the scrub as often.  (I’ll write a post about how I use the scrub) My favourite time to use this is straight after using wipes to remove my makeup this helps to sooth my skin and help it feel moisturised.

5. Revealed Smokey Eyeshadow Palette £20.00  This smokey palette features 20 smoldering eyeshadows to create a stunning smokey eye.

IMG_20170216_113458

This gorgeous smokey palette has 20 shades all of which are very pigmented and you can go for a smokey look or a nude look using the natural shades, they blend really well making it easy to create the look you want. You can easily achieve lots of stunning looks. Its a favourite of mine.

Overall im very happy with this box and i call it a success.  I really love that its introduced me to brands i didn’t know and also products that i probably wouldn’t have bought at that price without trying it myself. I would definitely buy them now knowing that they’re great quality and also don’t affect my skin.

The value of the products together is £86.99  definitely a great bargain.
