ASOS July 2020 Beauty Box

Julys face and body box was a mix of goodies with a theme of all-natural, hydrating and brightening. A perfect theme as we enter the summer!

I also loved the tie dye box, very fitting for these times when it seems like every other social media post is someone attempting to tie dye!

Oh K! Caffeine body mask £7

First is an Oh K! Caffeine body mask, with coffee beans and fruit extracts. This is something I’ve not tried before and it was really fun to have a pretend spa day! It’s meant to help with firming your skin obviously I can’t say I saw any difference using it just once but it was fun to try and I really love the product range from Oh K! I used this on my arms and they felt really nice afterward smooth and refreshed.

The Ordinary Niacinamide Formula £5

The Ordinary Niacinamide Formula is a serum with Vitamins like B3 which help reduce blemishes but also moisturising. I have used this for quite a while now , basically whenever I have a breakout I use it for a few days and it helps reduce them so much quicker than other treatments I’ve used. I really love that it doesn’t completely dry my skin out like other spot treatments sometimes do. It’s a really affordable solution as well as being suitable for everyday use if needed.

Glamglow Thirstymud £16 for 15g

I’ve wanted to try a Glamglow product for so long and finally there’s a trial size in a box I’ve bought! This is their Thirstymud which is for softening, moisturising and boosting radiance with orange blossom, honey and coconut no less! I used this when I had my mini spa day with my caffeine body mask and it’s amazing. My skin felt so good afterward. Glamglow is pricey but I think I’d definitely consider trying more of their products as this has really impressed me.

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads £15 for 28 pads

First Aid Beauty is a brand I really like having had a cleanser and their moisturiser before. These face pads use lemon peel and liquorice root along with glycolic acid to exfoliate and brighten the skin. There are 10 pads in this pack and they were a nice product to use, I’ve used similar pads in the past and I would definitely repurchase as I do enjoy the First Aid beauty range.

Lanolips Face Base Day Cream £10 for 30ml

Lanolips face base day cream is a great basic day cream with Vitamin E designed to protect against environmental factors. This is a really rich face cream and actually contains colloidal oatmeal which is fantastic for soothing skin, something I’ve used in other products to help with my psoriasis.

Altogether this months box has a value of £43.30 , taking into account the smaller pack of facial pads. It’s fantastic value for money and I really look forward to these boxes each month! Have you tried the ASOS Face and Beauty boxes yet? Would love to know if you’ve tried any of the products featured too!

Lookfantastic July 2020

This months Lookfantastic box arrived super speedily and is another fab box with lots of beauty goodies! I’m still fairly new to this box , this one will be my third, but I am really enjoying them so far. Mostly they tend to be skincare focused but this time we have a few makeup treats too.

Sleek Matte Me (Shade Bittersweet) – worth £4.99

First is a Sleek Matte Me liquid lipstick, which has a lovely silky texture when you apply. Really love the colour which I’d describe as a russet red and it doesn’t give you that dry feeling on your lips which some matte lipsticks do. I really love matte formulas so it’s perfect for me!

Thisworks Morning Expert Hyaluronic Serum (10ml) – worth £12.33

This is a serum with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C, to reduce dehydration and make your skin will look brighter. I’ve not tried this before but have noticed a difference to the texture of my skin since introducing serums so I have high hopes for this! It’s lovely and light and doesn’t have any distinctive smell so hoping it works well for me!

So Eco Blush Brush – worth £7.50

I’ve been building up some better quality brushes for my makeup and I was really pleased to get this blush brush! It’s made from sustainable materials, cruelty-free and vegan. I’ve only used with powder blush so far but I think you could use it with a cream blush to blend out and give a nice glow. I love getting things like this in beauty boxes as it helps kit me out!

MONUspa Rose & Lemon Enriched Body Cream (100ml) – £16.65

This one isn’t for me I’m afraid! Rose is one of those scents that I think you either love or hate and I’m in the hate category! Although it’s a lovely light cream it is really heavily scented and just not something I’d use. It’s packed with lots of vitamins and essential oils to help with dryness so if you like rose scents maybe this ones for you.

Myvitamins Beauty Sleep (30 capsules) – worth £7.50/£8.50

I definitely believe in using vitamin supplements to support your diet, and these Myvitamins capsules are essentially a multivitamin. These are meant to be taken just before bed and has natural herbs, lemon balm, and chamomile to promote better sleep. Definitely interested to see if these help with my sleeping patterns as I’ve struggled a bit during lockdown with sleep. If you are thinking of taking any supplements like these always check with a Dr or pharmacist in case you need to be aware of any interactions with other medications.

Mádara Regenerating Night Cream (25ml) – worth £17

I really love this Night Cream, it’s a rich formula perfect for getting your skin feeling really fresh the next morning. It helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and aims to make your skin brighter and more youthful. Definitely want some of that!

Lookfantastic is a monthly box available on lots of different subscription plans which you can see here. I’ve not committed to a full plan just yet and am on the 1 monthly rolling subscription which is a great option if you just want to trial out a few boxes before signing up to a longer commitment. There are 1, 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions and it’s a little cheaper the longer the subscription you take out. My box cost £15 but the product value this month was £65.97 so really great value and aside from the body cream all products I will use.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this months box and if you’ve tried any of the products before?

ASOS June Box Summer Must haves!

It’s been so busy this month I realised I never got round to writing up about the ASOS June box. This is now sold out unfortunately but you can obviously buy individual products featured, some of them are definitely going to be repurchased by me!

If you’ve not had an ASOS beauty box before it’s a little different to a subscription box. You don’t sign up for automatic payments or anything like that. Just check the ASOS site on the 1st of each month and search the term ‘ beauty box’ to see the box. You can see the contents of the box before you purchase and they are usually £12 with the exception of some collaboration boxes they’ve done which have been £15-£18 and with brands like The Ordinary and Pixi Beauty.

A scrub from down under £13.95

So first up is the Frank Body A-Beauty scrub which is a coffee based scrub and smells amazing. I love scrubs like these as they are great for getting rid of those dead skin cells and for me perfect for helping get my skin smoother for applying treatments for my psoriasis. It’s perfect for prepping your skin for tanning applications.

Clinique Superdefense, a full size of this is £42

Next is a mini size of Clinique Superdefense gel. This is a lovely texture and so light. I love that it has SPF 40 included too, definitely a bonus for keeping your skin at its best. With the recent heatwave this was perfect for giving an extra layer of SPF protection. I always use sunscreen in addition and wouldn’t recommend relying solely on products like these for sun protection but it’s definitely a good start. Because it’s so light and a gel formula, it didn’t feel greasy or sticky.

The Holika Holika soothing gel £3.95 for the travel size 55 ml which is in the box £7.25 for the 250ml

I really loved this Aloe soothing gel from Holika Holika, perfect for the hot weather we’ve had this week! It’s a really light non sticky formula in this cute bottle shaped like an aloe leaf! This absorbs really well and I would definitely repurchase this.

St Tropez Express gel and mitt £5 for the mitt and £29.75 for the full size gel 200ml

The St. Tropez’s Express Gel is a one-hour hydrating tan gel. It’s infused with hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated up to 72 hours, and a long-wear formula, up to 10 days. A Double Velvet Sided Applicator Mitt is included to evenly apply and keep hands stain free. This is not something I’ve tried yet, typically I’d only use tanner if my skin was really good as it tends to not look good on dry patches.

Revolution Makeup Liquid Highlighter in Gold

I have always really enjoyed Revolution makeup as it’s really affordable and also effective. Their powder highlighters are a fave of mine so it was great to be able to try the liquid formula. This is a really pigmented highlighter, a little goes a long way! You can layer it up nicely if you wanted and it would look beautiful over a tan.

Another great box from ASOS with everything you’d need for the summer. If you got this box let me know what your favourite item was.

Look Fantastic May 2020

My first Lookfantastic box arrived in May, with six treats to try out. Lookfantastic ships every month and I’m told it is usually skincare focused which is great for trying out new brands. I’ve got to admit I bought this really for the Avant moisturiser which I’ve had before in another beauty box. It’s really good value at £15 per month (there are lots of plans available to make it slightly cheaper per month if you wanted to)

Magnitone Cloth £10

First up is this Magnitone cloth which is so soft and is designed to remove makeup with just water. I’ve seen a few of these around and not got around to trying one so I was really pleased to get one in here! It really does get makeup off with only water and they wash really nice afterward in the machine. Definitely will be repurchasing some more to use everyday.

DR Lipp Moisturising Lip Tint in Sweet Potato £3

This super cute mini lip tint is really a balm, perfect for dry or chapped lips. I personally didn’t see much in the way of a tint but it was nice for hydrating and moisturising. I used this up pretty quickly as it was very small but it was a really nice product.

Eyeko Brow Gel Mini £10

This was a surprise favourite for me in this box! I’m not a massive fan of brow gel and usually only use it when I’m going out out to keep everything in place. This has a great tint to the formula, a nice brown hint not too dark and doesn’t give you any flakiness or stiffness. This is definitely been repurchased by me as it just adds some definition to your brows with minimal effort. The full size of this is £18.

Avant Hyaluronic Acid Resurfacing Duo Moisturiser £100

The star product of the box and worth £100! This Avant Hyaluronic acid Moisturiser is a fave of mine. It’s a really rich formula and it works to brighten and create a more youthful complexion. I got this in another beauty box and it was my primary reason for purchasing this one, it’s such a good cream and works for sensitive skin .

Korres Hydra-biome Probiotic Facemask £9.40

I hadn’t heard of this brand before and was interested to try this face mask which uses Greek yoghurt and probiotics. It’s a really thick texture and I used it after being out in the sun to cool and hydrate my skin. It left my skin feeling so smooth and soft and I would definitely recommend for a pampering.

Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist £10

This is the one product that I haven’t used a great deal. It’s a facial mist designed to replace the toner in your skincare routine or can be used to refresh yourself face throughout the day. I found this was too much for my skin and caused some breakouts when I tried it so it’s not for me unfortunately. It’s a lovely light mist and might work better for other skin types.

In total the box contents were £142.40! £100 of that is the value of the Avant cream. Making it really good value and some fab products to explore for your skin. To find out more about Lookfantastic just visit their webpage to explore the different plans available for their beauty box.

Would love to hear in the comments if you’ve tried any of these products and what you thought of them.

Glossybox June 2020

Beauty around the World is this months theme with products from different countries inspiring the choices. I have a 12 month subscription with Glossybox which costs me £11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are lots of subscription plans on their website so you can choose one to suit you!

Five full sized items with everything from cleansing to skincare as well as makeup this month making it a really good selection.

Huda Beauty Life-Liner Eyeliner £18

Sneak peek from last month was this lovely Huda Beauty eyeliner. Huda Beauty is founded by Iraqi-American Huda Kattan and this range is always on point! Huda products are renowned by their staying power and this eyeliner doesn’t disappoint. It’s a dual ended eyeliner with liquid liner on one side and a pencil formula on the other.

Makeup removing cloths The Vintage Cosmetics Company £7.99 for two

These Vintage cosmetics company face cloths in zebra print are so amazingly soft! They are eco-friendly and reusable and you get two in the box. I really like these, I got a different brand last month in another box and they really make a difference to my cleansing routine making my skin feel smoother. This is a british brand who are inspired by the style of the 1950’s.

Beauty Pro Global Potato and Parsley Under Eye Mask £5.95

British brand Beauty Pro is included with these under eye masks that use potato and parsley- not ingredients I would think of for an eye mask! These claim to help reduce dark circles, depuff and hydrate. I do love a good eye mask though and one that can reduce dark shadows is always welcome!

Model Co Liquid Metal Eyeshadow £15

Model Co is an Australian brand and we had a lipstick from their range in a previous box this year. I was never really a fan of liquid eyeshadow previously but after getting a Bella Pierre one in a previous box I realised the formulas have come a long way since my teens! This is a really lovely pigmented shade with a nice sparkle. It would work really well as a base for other shadows or equally for a quick look just sweep across the whole eyelid with a nice liner.

LA Splash Eyeshadow brush set £15

Hollywood glam is all about glitz and glamour and LA Splash is a company founded in the great city! I’ve been working on getting myself better makeup brushes and these have come at a perfect time for me! They are really good quality brushes and a fab set for starting out with different eye makeup looks. I really like defining brushes for adding an eyeliner effect to my shadow so I know I’ll get a lot of use out of these. It’s amazing what difference quality brushes use in applying your makeup too .

In total this month the value of the box is £61.94. I really like this months box it’s got a great selection of products and is really good value for money! My favourites have to be the Huda liner, the brush set and the cloths. It’s always good to get things that add to your makeup collection!

Julys sneak peek is a multitasking lip and cheek balm from The Beauty Crop and promises to give you a rosy complexion. The box is tropical themed which will be a fab theme for all of us dreaming of sunnier climes!

If you got this months box what was your favourite item?

Love the skin you’re in

It’s ok to love your body just the way it is.

Sounds simple right? But it’s something I’ve struggled with pretty much since being a teenager. Over the last few years I’ve been on a mission to accept myself flaws and all, not always an easy thing especially when you are dealing with psoriasis and all of the perils of autoimmune disease. After all Psoriasis is so much more than just what you see.

I’ve become braver in speaking out about my psoriasis, something I was so ashamed of and never liked to draw attention to. But slowly I’ve become a little more confident, and unashamed to wear a T-shirt and bear my flared skin or wear a skirt without also thinking I have to wear thick tights to cover up. I’ve seen days in the height of summer when I’d wear a cardigan just so people wouldn’t see my skin.

Seems crazy when I think about it now but it took a long time for me to accept that I was never going to be “cured” and this was a condition I’d just learn to manage.

There’s no miracle cream that’s going to make it go away. There’s no tablet or injection that makes the fatigue and joint pain disappear, you just get good at managing with a combination of all of the above treatments. And a lot of family support. 💜

The difference within months can be dramatic at times

I am delighted to be part of the @_restingitchface #FlawedButBeautiful project encouraging people with long term conditions to know their worth and accept themselves. Because we all deserve to be happy.

There’s some amazing stories and people over on Instagram as part of the project so please do check them out. Psoriasis Association has lots of resources for anyone needing support.

I rarely discuss my specific treatment as I believe it’s important to work with a dermatologist but I do share moisturising creams and alternative therapies which have worked for me.

If you’re struggling with diagnosis or just want some perspective from someone who’s been through most of the treatments available via the NHS do get in touch.

Wild thing! Glossybox May 2020

If like me you’ve been sucked into the Tiger King docuseries on Netflix you’ll know that this beauty box could have been designed with Carole Baskin in mind! There’s been lots of change during the past 7 weeks but I’m so thankful that some of the little things that can brighten your day have been able to continue like Glossybox. For May their theme is exploring your wild side, with two special edition boxes in Leopard and Zebra print and a range of makeup, haircare and skincare to try out!

If you don’t know about Glossybox, it’s a beauty box subscription where you are sent 5 items each month. You can subscribe for various amounts of time or purchase a one-off box.

I pay £11.75 per month for my Glossybox including shipping but there are lots of plans available on their website www.glossybox.co.uk from 1-12 month plans or one off boxes.

Stargazer Glitter Eye Pencil RRP £2

First up was the Stargazer Glitter eyeliner pencil. The colour I was sent was violet which is a really bold colour with a bit of glitter scattered in. I really wasn’t sure about this as it felt a bit like something I would have tried when I was about 12. However! I did line my eyes with it and completely changed my mind, it was a lovely colour, not as bold when applied, but blends out nicely and I think with the right eyeshadow will look really nice. I’ve also seen a few people applying theirs over black eyeliner for a subtle glitter look and I do think that’s something I will try.

Vitamasques Bamboo Charcoal sheet mask RRP £3.99

So in a change to the advertised product, we were meant to get an OhK! Printed mask,my box contained a Vitamasques Bamboo Charcoal Sheet Mask. I’m guessing this might have something to do with the current pandemic situation and to be honest I don’t mind. The mask contains a detoxifying and pore tightening action to banish breakouts and eliminate excess oils according to their website.

It Is designed for stressed out skin and, lets face it, I think we’ve all experienced some stress the past 7 weeks!

I used this at the weekend and I really enjoyed it. I left it on for the full 20 mins (recommended between 10 and 20 mins to leave on) and my skin felt amazing. Usually when I use face masks like these I feel like the serum it’s coated in is dripping all over and this wasn’t , to me it was almost a gel style which meant it wasn’t sliding off all the time. Would definitely purchase this again as I think for £3.99 it’s a bargain.

Mudmasky Hair Mask, Scalp treatment and Miracle Shampoo RRP £21

Next is the Mudmasky Hair mask, Scalp treatment and Miracle Shampoo to help with dry, damaged and frizzy hair. Let’s see I check all of the above ! And given that my hair hasn’t seen a hairdresser since February, I was due an appointment the day of lockdown, I was excited to try this.

I am pleased to say it doesn’t disappoint. You apply like regular shampoo, leather and then leave it on your scalp for a minute before rinsing. It contains Moroccan argan oil, Moroccan mud and claims to strengthen and repair your hair. I could really feel a difference after the treatment and as someone with a sensitive scalp due to my psoriasis I was really pleased with this product.

Steve Laurent Eyeshadow Palette RRP £31

The star product of this box, which was the sneak peek last month, is the Steve Laurent eyeshadow palette which came in a cute leopard print box. The palette is a really good mix of neutrals with nine shades in all. With mattes and shimmers I think there will be a lot of use for me from this as you can do everything from day to night looks. The shades blend out nicely and the pigment is good.

The last item is an EOS lip balm in Sweet Mint. We did get a lip balm in last months box but I really don’t mind getting another one as I use these a lot! This smells amazing and the mint is not overpowering. A nice basic to have and use regularly.

The contents of this months box are worth £64.49 , so definitely worth the monthly subscription fee! So lastly on to the sneak peek for the June box! This was pretty exciting as it’s a Huda Beauty dual ended eyeliner with a liquid liner on one side and pencil on the other. This is worth £18 and fits with the theme of beauty beyond borders so an international beauty theme. Very much looking forward to this !

June’s sneak peek

If you want to sign up to Glossybox you can visit their website http://www.glossybox.co.uk or you can use my referral link here and receive a discount of 20% on your first box.

Hope you enjoyed reading about this months box, would love to know if you’ve tried any of the products from this month !

Asos Hydration Station Beauty Box

A little later than normal as I’ve been juggling lots with trying to homeschool as are a lot of people! If you’ve not had an ASOS Face + Beauty Box they are released at the beginning of each month, no subscription, just £12 per box. The boxes have a general theme each month, for April, it was all about hydration and refreshing your skin for Spring!

With a great range of products from serums, cleanser, eye masks and moisturiser I’m looking forward to trying the products and seeing what they can do for my skin.

First we have the STYLPRO Hydrating Jelly Cleanser, a vegan product, to remove makeup and keep your skin moisturised. This even came with a fab washcloth. I really like this and the washcloth is so soft, works brilliantly and my skin feels great. This is £9.95 to purchase.

Elemis is a fantastic skincare brand but not one I often buy as it can be quite expensive so it felt quite luxe to get this eye mask set. Perfect for a pamper night these were really lovely, I get really dry skin around my eyes and I could really feel the difference with these. These are £52 (!) for a pack of 6. So that makes this pair roughly £17!

Indeed Hydration Booster is £16 from most beauty websites online and is a serum type product for skin that is really dehydrated. You can use this as a stand alone or you can pop a few drops into your usual moisturiser for an extra boost! This is a really lovely product and full size making the box really great value based on this product alone. I preferred using it as a serum at night as that seems to work better for me but it’s really improved the texture of my skin for sure.

Inkey hyaluronic acid Serum is £5.99 and this is designed to be used AM and PM as your first serum following your cleansing routine. The hyaluronic acid acts as an aid to support your other moisturisers to make sure you get maximum benefit from your routine. Another really nice product that I’ve definitely felt the benefit from. My skin has changed quite a bit as I’ve gotten older and because of my psoriasis. So finding a good skincare routine has always been important to me.

The final product in the box was Caudalies Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet, in a mini size, 15ml which is worth about £8. This is intended to soothe and calm irritated skin with a gel formula and lots of skin soothers like chamomile. I’ve not tried this one yet apart from a quick test patch but it does feel really nice on the skin. It’s intended to be used like a serum.

All in all the April ASOS box was definitely a really great mix of products for anyone looking for a hydration boost. My standout picks from the box would be the cleanser and cloth, Indeed booster and the Inkey serum which I think have made the most difference to my skin.

The box cost £12 and in total the products were worth £56.94 ! Definitely a box worth grabbing and probably the reason it sold out so quickly!

Let me know if you’ve tried any of the products and your views on them

ASOS Fruity Beauty May 2020

May has been a great month for some of my favourite beauty boxes and ASOS was no exception. Just £12 (plus postage and packing if you don’t have their premier delivery) and with a fruity theme it’s the perfect pick me up during this quarantine.

The ASOS Fruity Beauty Box £12

As always each box comes with a handy little card explaining some of the products. All products included are available from ASOS and I love trying things out before I purchase them either full price or buy a full size.

Some suitably fruity colours and everything from lemon, black currant, watermelon and banana feature as part of the box, just have to remember not to eat them as they smell amazing!

Two full size products this time and three minis perfect for a pamper and to try things out.

Elemis, Ciate and Origins this month

First we have the Elemis Superfood Blackcurrant Jelly exfoliator to give your face a gentle scrub and a smooth complexion. I love Elemis products and this didn’t disappoint. It’s a really nice scrub with the most lovely scent and really gentle. Full size this is £28.

Next is the Ciate Watermelon Hydrating Primer to help your skin stay hydrated and help your makeup last longer. A really pretty looking product and it really does help hydrate, it actually contains hyaluronic acid along with witch hazel and niacinamide to soothe skin. It’s really light and has a fruity but not overpowering sweet smell. This made a really nice base for applying foundation and my make up lasted well. I would obviously like to see how it would hold up when we are out of lockdown on a night out! To purchase the full size this costs £24.

And finally we have Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask with avocado and glacier water from Switzerland (oooh !) I do like an overnight mask every now and then and this was really lovely to apply with a balm type texture. It actually has a scent sort of like citrus in particular lime to me which I liked. My skin looked really refreshed and healthy after using this. A full size of this is £22.

This Garnier hair food mask has been recommended by a few friends and I just never got round to trying it so I was pleased to see this in here! This is a full size product and is available to purchase for £7. It can be used as an intensive mask or you can use it as a leave in conditioner. I’ve got really thick hair and its prone to frizz and dryness so I love a good hair mask. This works really well and smells so good! I was worried the banana smell would be overpowering but it’s absolutely not, it’s a sweet banana smell than an intense one. I haven’t tried this as a leave in conditioner as yet but I would definitely repurchase as a mask because it’s a great sized product for the price.

Tony Moly Lemon Sheet Mask £5

I love a good face mask and they are usually a staple in these kind of boxes. This lemon mask from Tony Moly, a Korean skincare brand, is meant to brighten your skin with lemon oil and citrus extracts to give you a glow.

I’ve really enjoyed trying the products in this months box and between the sheet mask and hair mask alone the £12 I paid for the box was absolutely worth it. The ASOS box is released usually on the 1st or 2nd of the month and they are limited in stock. They are pretty popular and tend to sell out within a day so if you’re interested in grabbing one make sure you keep an eye on their website!

Glossybox April 2020

In the midst of these strange times and pandemic one thing remained the same…. Glossybox!

The Blossom themed April Glossybox

Packed with 5 beauty products with a very spring like feel, this box was the perfect pick me up and definitely brought a smile to my face.

First up in the box is one of the staple items often received in Glossyboxes, a Hask Hair Mask. I really love these masks as my hair gets incredibly dry and frizzy so I go through a lot of conditioning treatments to keep it healthy. Hask is a really affordable brand, one of these masks costs £2.49, and really makes a difference to the look and feel of my hair. Plus this one smells amazing with the peach and rose!

Nails Inc polish in Blossom

I love a good nail polish, especially a pink! Nails Inc is one of my favourite brands for staying power and this formula says it will last up to 10 days. It’s a perfect pink for spring and summer and this has an RRP of £11.

SportFX lip balm in coconut scent

This lip balm reminds me of the eos balms and the coconut smell is gorgeous, kinda reminds me of being on holiday! It’s a really good moisturiser and has an SPF of 15 so perfect for offering some sun protection. This is £4.99 to purchase separately.

Avant Face Exfoliant

The sneak peek from last month was this Avant face exfoliant which retails at £92! Avant is one of my favourite brands for skincare and they have such gentle but effective products. This face exfoliating scrub contains rose and is designed to calm irritation and help improve wrinkles. I’ve really enjoyed using this so far and it’s giving me a great base for applying makeup and has really helped with my skin which has flared due to the stress of the current pandemic.

The final product in my April box was a Rituals shower scrub in a cherry blossom scent. This is perfect for me at the moment as I’m struggling as I mentioned with a flare up of my Psoriasis. Gentle scrubs like this are great for helping get rid of any flaky patches and helping my emoillent creams sink in. Rituals products are one of my favourites and I actually had the body cream in this range for Christmas. This size is deluxe mini and is priced at £4.60. The full sized product is £9.90.

Altogether the products in this box totalled £115.08 ! I have a 12 month subscription with Glossybox which costs me £11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are lots of subscription plans on their website so you can choose one to suit you!

Next month the sneak peek is an eyeshadow palette from Steve Laurent and looks like a nice range of neutrals.

If you subscribe now you’ll be signing up for the May box while stocks last !
