GlossyBox Reviews: July 2016

The items below are what was in the July boxes, they had a 241 offer on for July which is always a bonus… 4 of the items so far have been tried & tested, so here are my reviews… ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ–‹

Goodie 1: Wilkinson Sword ~ Intuition Ultra Moisture with Shea Butter.

(RRP 6.99 ~ Supermarkets)

With gentle, creamy soap that lathers and moisturises, this razor will hydrate the skin while the four blades leave your legs feeling super soft. 

If I’m honest I’ve never used Wilkinson Sword for ladies before I’ve always used Gilette, not sure why just have. So this is my 1st time using a Wilkinson Sword product and I can say my legs a silky smooth, I think the Shea Butter Creamy soap around the 4 blades which has made my legs smooth. I will be using it again, I’m not sure if I would buy it again when shopping unless maybe it was on offer..

Goodie 2: The Vintage Cosmetic Company ~ Tweezers.

(RRP ยฃ8)Tweezers are a make up bag essential. The slanted edge makes them perfect for brow shaping or if you need to tame a few unruly hairs. These tweezers are pretty aswell, very Cath Kidson like. To me tweezers are tweezers, you pluck unruly hairs out with them, only up till 3 years ago I never had a pair of tweezers but now I have 3 pairs this being my 3rd pair! 

Goodie 3: Hairon ~ Detangle brush

(RRP ยฃ6.99 Hairon.co.uk)Hair is at its most vulnerable  to breakage when it’s wet. It’s the perfect size as it fits in the palm perfectly to carefully Detangle wet hair without snagging and tugging. It’s also a perfect size to fit in your handbag ๐Ÿ‘œ๐Ÿ˜Š.

I’ve used this product twice now and I can say it has detangled my hair and is now easier to brush and feels smoother and I can run my fingers through my hair easier.. ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿผ

Goodie 4: Tinties Lip Butter ~ In Pink ~ Royal Apothic

(RRP ยฃ14 royalapothic.com)

I’ve never heard of this company before, but after looking at it when I opened the box I thought it looked quite cute, and the box it comes in is quite nice too. These adorable little pots contain the finest formulation to nourish and condition your lips with the perfect hint of colour. I have the lip butter in a shade of pink, it has argan oil and grape seed oil to deeply hydrate & sweet almond oil and she’s butter to soothe. I think it’s a little too pink for me but its packaging is cute.. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hope your all having a great Friday

Lots of Love

I proberly should of done this post at the beginning of the year, well I did but it was on all my NYC purchases, but I should of done a stand alone post on the MK goodies I got, but here it is… 

Michael Kors – Brookfield Place. We had finished at the 9/11 memorial and took a wondered round to get a coffee and a piece of cake, we weren’t sure where we were going but end up in a small mall, in Brookfield Place where we found another Michael Kors shop!! I spotted 2 bags which I loved, the 1st one was a little out of my price range, and then I spotted the bag pictured below. The ‘Riley’ Bag (30F5SRLS3T) $368.00. I also got a purse (32F4STVZ3L) to match the darker handles which as on sale at $72.45



Michael Kors – Bleecker Street.. This was my 1st New York purchase, this Michael Kors shop isn’t far from ‘Carrie Bradshaw’s The Stoop’ which is featured on SATC. All that went on the SATC tour got 20% off at the Bleecker Store, so the Sunnies (MK6014) were $85.93 and the Small across the body bag (32S4GTVC3L) was $128.50

GlossyBox Reviews: June 16

The items below are what was in the June box, and I’ve tried 3 of the items so far so here are my reviews…

Goodie 1: Spa to You ~ Natural Konjac Sponge. 

(RRP 7.99 ~ spatoyou.com)This is the latest cleansing trend from Japan ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต.  Konjac sponges are made from the natural fibres of the Konjac, a porous root vegetable native to Asia and known for its ability to hold water. More gentle than a scrub but with skin-buffing capabilities, leaves your skin feeling clean and unbelievably soft. The key features of this sponge are: Gentky exfoliates the skin, deeply cleanses, refines pores, effectively balances the pH of the skin, naturally hydrates & moisturises the skin & ideal for delicate & sensitive skin.

I soak the sponge in warm water and then rinse off the excess water as stated. I then put some of my No7 cleansing foam on the sponge and gentle massaged in circular motions on my face and neck. I did this for about 3/4 mins to cover all my face, once I’d finished I splashed my face with cold water to rinse of the cleansing foam. Then I rinsed the sponge and squeezed the water out of it, and then hung it in a well ventilated are where it can dry by the string to keep it fresh and free from bacteria..

I will have to say that my skin is feeling smooth and fresh ๐Ÿ˜Š. So I will be using this product again. 

Goodie 2: Starskin ~ Eye catcher, smoothing bio-cellulose Eye Mask 

(RRP ยฃ8.50 starskinbeauty.com)These eye masks are soaked in vitamin-rich serum, these super hydrating eye masks make quick work to be reducing puffiness and dark circles, leaving you looking bright-eyed and more rejuvenated.  You place these directly under the eyes, the thinner end on the nose (to target the ‘bunny lines’) and the wider end to the outer corner of the eye. 

Looking at the target area the next morning, the area where I had a small area of dark circles does seem less darker and the eye area does look brighter, I will be buying these again and try them over a week to see the full benefit.. 

Bonus Goodie 3: Aussie Hair Care ~ 3 min miracle reconstructor deep conditioner.

This Australian Balm Mint extract, smoothed split ends & roughened cuticles.. It helps dry damaged hair into manageable and shiny locks in 3 mins!! 

When I opened it, it smelt sweet & fresh, a little hint of a marzipan smell and I ๐Ÿ’ marzipan!! I left it on my hair a little longer than the 3 mins and then washed it off.  I let my hair dry naturally, but after it had dried a little it feels softer and smells good too.. I’ll have to wait to see if I’ve got the shine!!

Happy Tuesday ๐Ÿ˜Š

Lots of Love
