Glossybox April 2019

The Glossybox April 2019 is an absolute stunner, packed full of fantastic goodies with the majority being full-sized.  Subscribers will receive either a "fruity" or "floral" themed box, either of which are bright, fun and inviting - this an excellent box! As soon as the box arrived it felt heaving with product, and it was, because there are six products in total, two of which are big products that added weight to the box and made it feel v[...]

Birchbox April 2019

The Birchbox April 2019 is here, and the box has had a bit of a makeover, looking ever-so-pretty.  The April 2019 Birchbox contents includes five products, two of which are makeup, then one of each for hair, body and skin. As you can see, the April 2019 Birchbox is a really lovely looking box, and it now flips open to reveal a mirror, which I was quite taken with at first, but it's a flimsy ol' box that isn't going to last long, so it's mo[...]

March Favourites (2019)

*PR Samples/Personal Purchases/Aff.Links* [lookbook id="25953" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] As you can see in the picture above, I've had a lot of things to love in March - all nine of them! There have been some real standout favourites in both skincare and make-up, so let's get right to it: I've been really enjoying the Rita Rakus Daily Tinted Broad Spectrum SPF50 (although I still have no idea why they refer to[...]

Glossybox Limited Edition Easter Egg 2019

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* I really like the idea of the Glossybox Limited Edition Easter Egg as I think it's the perfect gift to give someone who can't indulge in chocolate over Easter, be that for health reasons or because they're trying to cut down, this is such a lovely product and the contents are fab too, which helps! I also think I'll be able to reuse the egg that the goodies came in (after initially wondering what the hell to do with it...) as[...]

QVC UK TSV: Elemis Reveal Radiant Skin Collection

There have been some incredible Elemis QVC UK TSVs over the last couple of years, but I think this one, the Elemis Reveal Radiant Skin Collection, is my favourite so far.  Six brilliant and iconic Elemis products, all of which are full-sized apart from one - Elemis TSVs always go quickly, but I think this will be one of those that flies out of stock, so ready yourself! I really am so excited about these products as I think they're a great[...]

Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller

Occasionally something will show up online that I know is going to cause a lot of excitement, which is exactly what I thought would be the case with the Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller when it first popped-up on their Instagram feed.  Consequently I kept my eye on the Beauty Pie site to see when it would become available, then last week, Caroline Hirons posted about its imminent arrival and I started refreshing the "accessories" pag[...]

QVC UK TSV: Time Bomb 4 Piece Supersize Skincare Collection

The Time Bomb 4 Piece Supersize Skincare Collection QVC TSV is a really decent collection that kind o[...]

Foundation Files: Chantecaille Future Skin Oil-Free Foundation

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25890" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] The Chantecaille Future Skin Oil-Free Foundation is a product I've had my eye on for a while as it sounds and looks quite unlike anything else I have in my collection.  Promising lightweight, adjustable coverage in a comfortable and light-reflecting gel formula, this is one of those products that quickly became cult for very good reason. Fo[...]

Origins Blooming Sheer Lip Balms

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25877" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] The Origins Blooming Sheer Lip Balms are a brilliant new take on the traditional tinted lip balm, with a little bit of a twist.  I would say these are more like incredibly hydrating lipsticks, as the pigmentation is really decent (and very buildable) and the wear is surprisingly good for a product that's so hydrating.  There's also a really good[...]

Morgan Taylor The Colour of Petals Collection

*PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. links* [lookbook id="25864" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] The Morgan Taylor The Colour of Petals Collection could not be more Spring-like; the colours are six different pastels that mostly lean pink or lilac - great if you're like me and love a pastel nail, but less so if you prefer a brighter shade.  What I really like about the Morgan Taylor The Colour of Petals Collection is that it's themed -[...]

Mask Monday: Paula’s Choice Radiance Renewal Mask

*PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25856" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] I have a little selection of skincare products that I keep in my kit for when I really just cannot be bothered.  These are the sort of products that do amazing things in a very short space of time with minimal effort, and the Paula's Choice Radiance Renewal Mask is a great example of these types of products.  It's a mask that you can use a[...]
