Glossybox April 2020

I really enjoy the fact that Glossybox have streamlined their themes so you can really feel it throughout every product.  The Glossybox April 2020 contents is all about Spring, with the theme being "blossom" and you can definitely tell it's on-theme! There are five products included, with a very good mix of skincare and make-up, all of which are a little bit pink and/or floral. My absolute favourite inclusion in the Glossybox April 2020 bo[...]

Tropic Skincare Tahitian Vanilla and Coconut Luxury Bath Foam

When I think of Tropic, I think of their amazingly natural skincare, then more recently their fantastic make-up range too.  I don't really associate them with bath and body products, even though they have a pretty decent range available, including the Tropic Skincare Tahitian Vanilla and Coconut Luxury Bath Foam which gives baths a little bit of pampering luxury that we could all do with right now. I didn't know how I'd get on with the scent o[...]

Mask Monday: Apivita Moisturising Face Mask with Sea Lavender

It's been absolutely ages since I did a Mask Monday post, even though I'm still using masks a lot, particularly any that offer hydration as my skin is still adjusting to a higher retinol percentage and it is very dry and flaky.  To me, the mark of a good moisturising mask is one that feels rich on the skin but doesn't absorb too quickly, as otherwise you might as well just apply a thick layer of moisturiser - I want a mask to sit on the skin, pro[...]

AD: HERPOtherm Cold Sore Treatment Review

Ad/Sponsored Content - I have been paid to feature this product.  Did you know that 90% of people in Europe carry the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 - the main cause of cold sores - but only 30% of carriers produce blisters? That's a huge percentage of people who would benefit from a reliable cold sore treatment that's safe and easy to use, so I'm excited to show you the HERPOtherm Cold Sore Treatment, a purse-friendly device that's free from chemicals[...]

OPI Mexico City Collection – Spring 2020

I so rarely go to events nowadays, but a few weeks ago, OPI launched their Mexico City collection with a night of Mexico-themed joy that was so up my street, and I'm so glad I went! Not only is the collection a colour-lovers dream, the event itself involved consuming a series of Mexico tapas and drinking tasty Mexican cocktails (virgin for me, since I was driving) and it was definitely my favourite event for a while. As with all OPI collect[...]

CeraVe Cleansers Review

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and SA Smoothing Cleanser

When it comes to skincare, my soft spot has always been cleansers; a good cleanser can turn a mundane, everyday experience into a few moments of relaxing luxury, so I have a HUGE collection of cleansers that I dip in and out of depending on my mood.  Since the arrival of the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and it's complimentary buddy, the CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser, I've almost exclusively used them, which I think says a lot about how fantastic they are[...]

Glossybox February 2020 (Love Crosses Borders)

I haven't featured a Glossybox box for a while, mostly because I haven't been doing much blogging lately, but I'm annoyed I didn't manage to feature last month's box as it was so good! The February 2020 Glossybox contents is themed around "Love Crosses Borders," which basically means the products are from all over the world instead of focusing on mostly British brands.  I love the overall vibe of the box, especially as, whether intentional or not[...]

Philip Kingsley Pure Blonde Colour-Correcting Weekly Shampoo and Mask

Philip Kingsley is easily my favourite haircare brand; it's just such a reliably decent and solid range that provides easy-to-understand product collections that you can mix and match to find your perfect combination...and don't even get me started on the amazing Elasticizer, which every single hair type would benefit hugely from using - it's just one of those amazing products that gives strength to hair in a way no other product (that I'm familia[...]

Glossybox Fri-Yay Limited Edition Box

I really love the packaging for the Glossybox Fri-Yay Limited Edition Box - I think it blends the typical colours of both Black Friday and Glossybox together really well, plus it's very pretty too! There are 10 products included in the box in total, with a really good mix across make-up, skincare and all that's in-between. Here's a look at what you get: MUA Bronzed Perfection Shimmer in Sahara Sunlight (full-size) Soaper Duper Super Light Sh[...]
