There was Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang bath and shower gel, Le mini macaron Foot mask, Balance Me BHA exfoliating concentrate, Prai throat and décolletage creme, Diego Dalla Palma brow pencil and Comfort Zone Night cream.

I absolutely loved the foot mask, a real spa type treat and fab for giving my feet some tlc. It smelled lovely and my feet have been so soft. My other stand out from this month is the Molton Brown, smells gorgeous and it’s my fave colour – purple! The Comfort Zone night cream is a really good formula and my skin has felt so nice, really nourished and replenished!

Look Good Feel Better with ASOS

A surprise box from ASOS this October with a charity collaboration supporting Look Good Feel Better. This box was £20 but all proceeds go to supporting the charity which helps people with cancer. They aim to help people with cancer emotionally and physically with workshops on skincare, makeup and grooming designed to help with wig advice, nail care or shaving with scars.

With 10 products and brands like Nars, Charlotte Tilbury, TooFaced, Benefit and HudaBeauty to name just a few this was one not to be missed.

My fave item has to be the Ruby Obessions palette from Huda Beauty, this is full size and worth £27 !

There are a few mini sizes with a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in the shade Bitch Please and a gorgeous Nars lipcreme in a really vibrant red which reminds me of MACs Ruby Woo in a creme form.

There’s also a full size TooFaced primer which is £29 so this box is well worth the money based on the primer and Huda palette alone.

Alpha H moisturiser, Ouai hair oil, benefit mascara and a Real Techniques sponge round out the box and make this a real top to toe box!

Well done ASOS you’ve done it again!

Time to shine with ASOS

Hey everyone I’m back with another ASOS box! October’s box is themed to haircare and is perfect for the winter weather that’s coming! Let’s jump in and have a look at the awesome stuff in this box for just £12.

Monday haircare Smooth Shampoo

First up is Monday Haircare with their smooth shampoo, this is designed to fight frizz and uses Shea butter and coconut oil. First up it smells amazing and my hair felt incredible after using it.

Hair burst conditioner mini £5

Hairburst mini conditioner has avocado and coconut for strengthening properties and helps hair feel hydrated for longer. This is a great size for weekends away so I think I’ll be keeping it for that.

Ouai treatment masque

Ouai is one of my favourite hair brands and this treatment didn’t disappoint! Although this was for fine to medium hair it was still a lovely treatment for my thicker hair and it didn’t feel greasy afterward.

Camille Rose Coconut Water Detangling Hair Treatment

Also in this box is the Camille Rose hair treatment which smells of suncream and holidays (aka coconut!). This is perfect for a weekly treatment and I’ll be dreaming of a sunny getaway this winter while I use it! Great for thick hair and anyone with frizz prone or dry hair.

Easilocks hair oil

Last is a heat protection oil from Easilocks which is to apply before drying, straightening and curling to avoid damage. It’s a lovely lightweight oil and I am always up for anything that will help protect my hair from heat styling. I do try to limit the amount of heat I use lately but it’s great to make sure you have the right products to use and stop any damage.

Invisibobble sprunchie

An added extra to tie up your hair in style is this invisibobble sprunchie! It’s a cute linen style material and means you can tie your hair back without the headache. Invisibobbles are like stretchy spirals, almost like a phone cord, they stretch but still hold the hair in place without it being too tight.

And that’s everything in this box ! Amazing value for £12 , but what do you think?

If you want to try and grab next months box in November, I recommend getting the ASOS app and periodically searching for beauty box, from around the 1st of the month. Sometimes they go live on the 1st other times it’s been around the 6th.

Spa feeling with Glossybox

I can’t quite believe October is just around the corner and my September Glossybox has only just arrived! There’s been lots of issues lately with Glossybox and there are some really unhappy customers on their social channels.

Thankfully this months box was worth the wait and packed with goodies to make a spa day in your own home.

First was this Spa Cleansing brush from Spa to You worth £16. Great for giving your face a deeper clean than normal and exfoliating for a smoother complexion.

Every good spa has a range of different products for you to try and we got this lovely Figs & Rouge Clarity serum to try. They have been a featured brand before and one which I’ve really liked after trying their Wonder Charm serum which gives a beautiful glow to the skin so looking forward to trying this one.

Face masks are always a beauty box favourite and this is a Pearl brightening mask from Vitamasques which is a brand I really like. They have a great range of masks and I love taking some time out to use a sheet mask and relax!

After you’ve cleansed and used your masks and serum you can use this Skin & Co Face Gommage which helps in exfoliating the skin gently using winter truffle extract.

Finally a cute hairspray which is always handy to pop in your bag from Percy & Reed. I really like this hairspray as it’s not sticky and doesn’t dry your hair out.

There were also two treats included this month which was nice, especially when one is a Lindor chocolate bar! The other treat was a sample set of fragrance from Judith Leiber which can be worn separately or layered together.

I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.

What did you think of this box? Is it one you’d enjoy?

Celebrate the good times with Lookfantastic beauty box

September is starting to move in after the recent heatwave and the colder, darker nights are making an appearance which usually means a switch up with your skincare routine. This months Lookfantastic box is a fab one for skincare and Haircare to combat the dry weather that messes with your routine

First is a smoothing exfoliating product designed to help with keratosis pilaris or “chicken skin” as it’s commonly known. You just massage on 2-3 times a week and rinse in the shower.

Next is a By Terry nourishing lip balm, I’ve had this before from Lookfantastic quite a while ago and it’s gorgeous for your lips I absolutely love it. Also pictured is an eyeliner by 3ina , this is a felt tip style liquid eyeliner but it’s brown. You almost never get brown liners in beauty boxes they are usually black so this is a nice change! It’s really easy to use and stayed put all day when I used it so I was impressed with it.

A staple item in the beauty box world is of course the sheet mask and BeautyPro is one of the names that often comes up. This one is a brightening mask with collagen, vitamin C and aloe Vera. Perfect for this time of year and my skin definitely felt soothed afterward.

Next is a Christophe Robin hair mask, super simple to use just apply after shampooing and leave on your hair for 10 mins. This one is packed with aloe Vera and is great for all hair types. I really liked this because it made my hair feel super soft and hydrated. My hair is mid length so I will get a couple uses out of this as well.

Next is an eye cream from SVR which can also help with redness and irritation so perfect for anyone with sensitive skin. I love a good eye cream so this is right up my street!

Septembers celebration of beauty box

What do you think of this one ?

Wanderlust with Lookfantastic

If the current state of the world has filled you with an urge to travel and get out, look no further than this amazing beauty Bag from Lookfantastic. Yep that’s right this month instead of a bag we have this gorgeous white travel bag along with everything you need for summer skin, let’s dive in and unpack it!

The Summer Lookfantastic beauty bag £15

First is this absolutely gorgeous Illamasqua highlighter in a champagne colour , this will look amazing on all skin tones and is so beautifully pigmented without that glittery look. It’s a sheen of brilliant colour and I absolutely love it!

Next is a new product to me, the Starskin brand is one that’s been featured a lot but I’ve not seen this type of product before from them, it’s a Miracle Skin Mask pad. This is basically like an exfoliating pad but with a more serum based approach which is why it’s called a mask pad. You just sweep across the face and it replaces serum in your routine. It’s nice and I could see myself using them as part of an evening routine maybe.

I wasn’t expecting to like this next product at all, because I am not into fake tan. Main reason being that because of my psoriasis it just doesn’t work for me it always looks patchy and sticks to areas of my skin that are raised, which isn’t the tans fault. So when I saw this I didn’t realise at first it was a gradual tanning mist. However I did decide to give it a go as my face has been clear of psoriasis and I wanted to see what it was like. It actually is really subtle and for me I felt like I would use it every so often just for a bit of a tan glow. I imagine if you used it regularly it would build up more so I think it’s nice to have that option if you are into tanning products.

I love that Lookfantastic put in haircare items from time to time and Grow Gorgeous is a great brand. This spray is a anti-pollution leave in spray and it is to help protect your hair from any nasties. I did try this and my hair was incredibly soft afterward and my hair seemed to like it.

Elemis products are always a welcome fave in beauty boxes and this one is absolutely amazing. It’s a glow priming moisturiser and it’s just perfect for wearing if you want a no makeup day but just want a little bit of a glowy skin moment. It’s not too shimmery it’s just the right amount to give a little blur to your skin tone and it smells incredible.

Last of all is a Revlon lipstick in the shade Rose Wine. I think it’s more of an autumnal shade for me but it’s a really nice berry toned red and feels really nice on so I definitely think I will enjoy using it.

Lookfantastic have a range of subscriptions available here with a rolling subscription where you pay month by month as well as 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions.

I’m currently subscribed on a monthly basis and pay £15 including postage and packaging for my box and always find this a great box with usually a skincare focus as well as some tools like brushes/ sponges ect.

ASOS Buyers pick box – is it worth it?

If you’ve ever wanted to know the cult beauty products the professionals swear by, this is the box for you! Filled with the ASOS buyers ultimate summer picks this box is a must!

June’s ASOS box is surprisingly still available and I’m not sure if it’s because of the price increase? This box was £20 instead of the usual £12 but was it better value? Let’s run through and find out!

Bareminerals lipstick mini

First is a Bareminerals lipstick. It’s a mini size but I really like the shade and I sometimes do prefer the small size in a lipstick as I do prefer gloss and liquid lip products generally. It’s a lovely pink rose shade so it’s a nice everyday colour. Bareminerals is a brand I really like, I’ve been using their face powder and have previously used the lashtopia mascara from them which are both really nice products.

Cerave Smoothing Cream £12

Next we have CeraVe Smoothing cream a moisturising cream to help with rough or bumpy skin conditions like Keratosis Pilaris. This does have 0.5% salicylic acid which gently exfoliates the skin. Because of this it’s not one I can use as it really would irritate my psoriasis so I’ll be passing this on.

Indeed no acid pads £15.95

These indeed laboratories skin pads are all about exfoliating the skin to get clearer brighter skin and can be used morning and night. I’ve really enjoyed using these and have seen definite improvement in my skin texture, I will be re-purchasing these for sure!

Revolution Lift and Define Mascara £9
Ouai Detox Shampoo sample

Lift and Define mascara from Revolution I had not tried before. Described as a 5D mascara to lengthen, lift, define, stretch and volumise with just one coat- thats a lot! It’s a black mascara and it’s quite a creamy style formula. I really liked this and I think I probably would buy it again. I had been using Maybelline Sky High but I feel like I don’t get the volume in my lashes like I do with this.

I really like Ouai products and I’ve used quite a few now so I’m interested to see what this is like. The Ouai Detox shampoo is a sample size. Designed to deep clean hair and unblock clogged follicles, with a gentle formula suitable for all hair types. Apple cider vinegar helps strengthen weakened hair and improve lustre by lowering the pH levels of the hair and scalp. I’m hanging onto this until I need to do a clarifying wash on my hair but Ouai is a brand I really like and I use their curl creme and wave spray so I have no doubt this will be great!

Next is a Glamglow Supermud mini, this is 15g and priced at £16. This I’ve had before in another box and it’s brilliant for any blemishes, an ideal mask for treating any small areas. You just apply for 5-20 mins and then cleanse. I’ve had a few breakouts lately and this has been awesome at calming them down.

This Works Stress Check mood manager spray mini which is £15 for 35ml usually. I love these aromatherapy style sprays and this one has Ylang ylang, neroli and patchouli scents which are really relaxing. Created through fMRI brain imaging technology to help modify mood, reduce feelings of stress and restore a sense of calm to an agitated mind. You can mist it over skin, clothes, furnishings or bed linens to help keep your mind clear and positive. I like to use this in my office space and bedroom.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, priced at 15ml for £29.40 is our next item. I love this , it’s quite a rich cream and so I prefer to apply it at night. It aims to improve your skins firmness and elasticity. Elemis is one of those brands where I feel like you really get what you pay for, it’s such good quality and I always feel like I see results from using it.

Invisibobble are another brand which I love, these cord style ties especially, for not ruining your hair and getting tangled like others do in my hair! I was always sceptical before I tried them but they still hold your hair really well and you can also prevent headaches from tying your hair too tight with these. You get three in this pack for £5.99.

In total the full size and deluxe minis in the box cost £88.44 which is great value considering the cost of the box was only £20!

I’d definitely love it if ASOS did more special editions like this every so often, I love trying new products and even at £20 instead of £12 I still think it’s fantastic value for money.
