Beauty | June's Glossybox Review

As one of the original beauty subscription boxes on the market, Glossyboxhas certainly earnt its stripes over the past six years when it comes to delivering 'the ultimate beauty experience' in the form of a monthly box of beauty, featuring some of the industry’s best loved brands. I’ve said it before, but for me, beauty boxes are the best way to try brands you may not have bought into before without a huge upfront cost. Plus, we all deserve a little treat now and then, right?

Fleur De Force by Eylure Brow Palette & Brow Tamer Review

When I think back to the makeup routine I had in my early twenties, my eyebrows didn’t really get much love. Sure, I tweezed them regularly to keep any strays at bay, would fill them in with a pencil on occasion, and sometimes even put a bit of vaseline on to keep them in place, but that was probably the extent of it. Back then, the emphasis was on a smoky eye, false lashes or a bold lip, and my poor brows became two ‘barely there’ (and verrry thin) arches above my eyes that left a lot to be desired. Fast forward 10 years, and forgetting to brush my brows in the morning is actually a more daunting thought than forgetting to brush my hair.

May's 'Love Me Beauty' Review

Beauty subscription boxes, they're everywhere. There's something really exciting about a monthly parcel arriving at your door filled with beauty treats, and so many brands are now getting involved that it's a great way to trial new and different products and brands to those you would normally buy. Now, as much as I love the element of surprise and not knowing what I'm going to receive every month, it can often be a bit of a lottery as to whether you will actually like or want any of the pre picked products. The average monthly subscription costs around £10, and although the products inside the box always tend to exceed this, sometimes they're not what you would pick, nor will use.

Skincare | La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo & Effaclar BB Blur Review

La Roche-Posay is a brand I've wanted to try for absolutely ages. I've spoken openly before on the blog about my battle with problem skin throughout my teens and twenties, and as a result, I prefer to use skincare that contains active ingredients, but is also suitable for delicate, reactive skin. La Roche-Posay ticks all of those boxes, so I treated myself to their anti blemish cream, and BB blur cream, and have been using both products daily for the past 10 weeks.

Beauty | Products I Will Be Re Buying

As a beauty lover, I get through a LOT of products. Whether it's new makeup, skincare, fake tan or beauty accessories, I seem to always be trying something new, and needless to say my bathroom cupboards are bursting. 

I do occasionally come across the odd product that doesn't make the cut or live up to my expectations or its own hype, but the beauty market is booming at the moment, and there are so many amazing brands out there offering game changing products that it's rare I come across a really bad one. On the flip side of this, as much as I seem to like the vast majority of the products I review, I don't always buy them again. With that in mind, today's post is all about the products I have recently run out of and will be re buying, and the reasons why- to me, this gives them a really big stamp of approval as it proves I've loved them enough to use them up completely, and re buy, rather than move onto the next 'must have.'

April's Beauty Favourites

It's been a while since I've posted a 'monthly favourites' round up. I've been pretty boring when it comes to my product choices and there hasn't been anything that I've loved enough to write about up until now, but thankfully there are a few new additions to my beauty routine which have made the cut, and I'm excited to share them with you all. 

My favourites for April are a mix of products I've bought myself and gifted products, but as always I only ever feature gifted products in a favourites post if I absolutely love them. The rule for me is if I like them enough to re buy them, they make the cut! I've got some skincare, haircare, makeup, and even a new teeth whitening product (and discount code) to talk about today, all of which I've been using and loving over the past few months.

Skincare | My Top Picks For Spot Prone Skin

Now don't get me wrong, I love makeup, and am always adding to my every growing collection, but I also have a real soft spot for amazing skincare as well. Having suffered with my fair share of breakouts throughout my teenage years and twenties, I guess you could say I'm always conscious of how my skin looks underneath makeup, and as a result if my skin is bad, I feel bad...No matter how much of it I'm wearing.
