The How Much Is My Face Worth Tag!

IMG_1758 copy

I’ve been pretty bad at keeping up with my tags and award nominations lately, so I’d like to apologise about that. I was nominated for this tag by Aisha from The Beauty Linguist over a month ago now, but this seems like a fun little post to do, so here goes.

October Glossybox First Impressions

IMG_1795

Another month, another amazing Glossybox! This month’s box has a pop art theme and to my surprise came in this awesome yellow carton. How cool?! (Also I hope you appreciate my Studio Ghibli plushies in the background there haha) Inside was this gorgeous box design, was was available in a few different colours.

Beauty Haul! Ft. Boots & Sainsbury’s

So this month I told myself that I didn’t really need any more beauty products and that I’d keep my money to sort my car out (MOT time!) and for going to Comic Con. Comic Con hasn’t happened yet, but the MOT went surprisingly well, so, inevitably, I went shopping.

Empties 2

IMG_1773

I’ve been making a big effort recently to use up my old products that have been lying around for ages. I, like a lot of people, buy new things when I start getting low and then get too excited about the new product to make sure I use up the old one before I start using it, so I’ve been trying to change that. The result? Another small pile of empties has cropped up so time for some reviews!

Game Day OOTD

Game Day Outfit

I was recently challenged to create a game day outfit for the upcoming baseball season. I wanted a casual look, so decided to use a simple cap to show support for a team. Fanatics is an online retailer of officially licensed sports gear and they have a huge selection of hats to choose from.

Best Micellar Water: Garnier vs Botanics vs Nivea

IMG_1779

I know I promised a comparison post of the Botanics Micellar Water and the Garnier Micellar Water ages ago, but it seemed worth waiting to add the Nivea one into the mix after I got it in last month’s Glossybox. (See my post about that incredible box here). So here it is at last!

Little Lush Haul

IMG_1761

I finally did it! I went into Lush and bought some things all without sneezing! This for me is a small miracle. I’ve always seen such great reviews of Lush products, but the store itself has always put me off. However, one of my friends at work used to work at Lush and decided it was time to take me along and pass on some of her expertise, and I have to say I loved having my own personal assistant to introduce me to the store properly.

September Glossybox Review

IMG_1729

I don’t think I made it much of a secret when I received this box that it was by far my favourite Glossybox to date. I may have only had three, but this is a whole other level for them. Read on to see if I still love it as much now that I have had chance to put the products to the test!

As I mentioned before, this is my first box from You Beauty Discovery and I’ve now had plenty of time to go through and give these products a go. That means its time for some reviews!

Aussie Dry Shampoo Review

IMG_1646

Some of you might remember this from a haul post I did a little while back. I love the Aussie brand anyway, so couldn’t resist picking this up when it was on offer in Boots for £3.33 down from £4.99. Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo 180ml comes in a few varieties, but I got the Colour Mate one. I’ve been using this a lot, especially since I used up the last of my Batiste, so I thought I’d let you all know how it shapes up.

Switching To Sulphate Free Shampoo – Week 2 & 3

IMG_1644

Okay so this is the promised follow-up post to let you all know how I’m getting on with changing to sulphate free shampoo. If you haven’t seen it already, you can read about why I switched and how I got in during the first week here.

I did originally say that I would do an update after a week, however I felt like there wasn’t really much to say apart from giving more unanswered questions so I’ve waited to do an extra week to give you all a better idea of what it’s been like to make the switch. The products pictured above are from The Body Shop’s Rainforest range (£4.50 each).

September Glossybox First Impressions

IMG_1726

I did say I’d gone a bit beauty box crazy this month didn’t I? Well, hopefully as followers of my blog you understand my growing obsession with them. The third and final box I got this month was my usual Glossybox. Now I know I promised this post on Monday, but I missed the postman and then my dad collected it on Tuesday, but I wasn’t at home. I’ve just got back, opened this up and boy oh boy was it worth the wait!

September You Beauty Discovery Box First Impressions

IMG_1720

So time for the second post of the day! A first for me, but as with the Birchbox, this beauty box arrived on Friday evening (at the same time actually) and I’ve only got to have a proper look at it today.

You Beauty Discovery is a sample based beauty monthly subscription service. The main difference between this and other beauty boxes is that each month a list of products are released and members get to select two items they wish to try out. Other items are then added in so you still get a surprise through the door each month. The packaging is clean and simple, but still attractive. This month is their first birthday, so they have included a bonus item in every box!

September Birchbox First Impressions

IMG_1713

As far as Sundays go, sitting eating cherry pie and writing about beauty boxes isn’t a bad way to spend some time! And yes beauty boxes plural, because I have two new subscription boxes to try out and compare for you this month, along with my usual Glossybox!

First up, is Birchbox. My parcel arrived Friday evening and I took a quick peek at it, but as I’ve been really busy I’ve only sat down and had a proper look at it this afternoon. I have to say, I’m quite impressed!
