OOTD: When In Rome!

Since coming back from Rome, I’ve still not gone through all of the photos yet to make a full post! But I do have this one for an outfit of the day.

I am currently LOVING swing dresses ❤

Glossybox: Autumn Spell

October Glossybox Time!

So, this months box helped introduce those long dark nights with a bang, and their products all centered around helping give yourself a little TLC when those cold nights draw in.

1. Talika Photo-Hydra Day – £24.85. The colder it gets the more dry my skin gets and so having the chance to try out a new moisturiser this season was perfect for me. This moisturiser is the first cream to use the energy of natural light to hydrate deep inside the skin and moisturise it. Skin is left smooth, soft and replenished. Winner!

2. Nicka K Airbrush Blending Sponge – £6.50. I love sponges and so again this was a nice little surprise in my box this month. I’m always happy to add another to my collection! It’s perfect for liquid foundation, primer or concealer and you get a really nice smooth and even look when finished.

3. So Susan Haute Light Highlighting Pencil – £15. This light peach coloured pencil is great for highlighting your lower lash line to help maker your eyes look bigger and brighter. It’s a really pretty colour and it’s perfect for making my eyes pop.

4. Jelly Pong Pong Play Paint – £8.95. As a brand, I really like Jelly Pong Pong and this is a really nice lip stain. When they say you need a pea size drop, they do mean this! A little goes a longggg way! I’ve not tried it on my cheeks, so I can’t comment on that but for the lips I really recommend it for giving you a pop of colour.

5. Lanolips Lip Ointment – £7.99. This lip balm with SPF15 hydrates and protects your lips with its ULTRA Medical Grade Lanolin. It has a really pretty light pink hue to it once applied and whilst it wasn’t my favourite product received this month it did leave my lips feeling soft.

I really enjoyed this months box and all of the products available and I absolutely LOVED that they were all full size. My favourite has to be the sponge, just because I enjoy using them so much! Every month so far I’ve not received a box I’ve disliked from Glossbox and I’m so excited for next months! Plus, whose excited about their collection with NARS?! Oooo!

What did you think of your box?

Birchbox: Back To Basics!

So, this month I chose the Back To Basics Box and I picked it for a few reasons… Firstly it’s because out of the product options available they most appealed to me and I hadn’t received them previously; secondly I loved the clean cut look of the box, being a dark navy blue with Birchbox embossed in gold.

Here’s what I got 🙂

1 & 2. Beaver Professional Hydro Moisturizing Shampoo, £11.50 and Conditioner, £12. This gentle shampoo aims to recover and repair your locks with the help of avocado oil and aloe vera. Personally, with having hair that’s coloured, I don’t tend to use shampoo that’s not specifically for colour treated hair and so I’ve not actually used this or the conditioner… yet!

3. Bioderma Sébium H20 – £10.20. This daily cleanser for oily skin contains the patented sebo-correcting complex Fluidactiv to help purify the skin and regulate sebum quality. It’s gentle on the face and eyes and there’s no need to rinse after use to help cleanse, refresh and take off your makeup at the end of your day! I’m a huge fan of micellar water and so this was perfect for me. I loved it.

4. Regenerate Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste – £10. With a minty fresh taste this toothpaste protects against cavities, reverses early signs of enamel erosion and boosts the whiteness of your teeth. It’s a nice toothpaste and I do enjoy using it, however at the price if I choose to buy it after it would be the most expensive toothpaste I’d have ever bought!

5. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat – £9. For a durable yet glossy finish to your at-home-mani, this top coat with its patented formula locks in colour for the long haul. I’m always running out of top coats and so to get a new sample from a brand I’ve not tried before was at the top of my list! It dries very quickly and I can’t fault this as a product.

6. Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner In Black – £12. I’m quite a fan of eyeliner and so again this was another reason why I chose this box! This ultra-black eyeliner is smudge proof and long lasting. It’s easy to use and you can build it up as much as you want – win win for me.

Overall again, I was really pleased with my box! My favourite was the Bioderma, followed closely by the Seche Vite. I can’t wait for next months to try out some more products ❤
