Beauty Blogger Box September Edition

It’s time for the second edition of the Blogger Beauty Box by the wonderful Vicky. I was so surprised when this arrived through the post but also so excited for it to arrive!

Blogger Beauty Box

The first product which caught my attention was the Yes To…Facial Wipes. The travel pack is so ideal for winter weekends away and they smell just like blueberries, I love them.

Makeup Revolution has got to be one of the most talked about makeup brands in the beauty blogger world. I have one of their eyeshadow palettes which I absolutely love. I like the feel of this lipstick and that it is slightly creamy. I love the colour but I would have to be in a daring mood to wear it!

I met the lovely people behind Yours Truly Organic at the Bloggers Festival in London and I’m excited to try this serum. I love what they stand for already and I have a good feeling about this repairing serum!

This lipgloss from Beautiful Movements Cosmetics in Gypsy Spirit is a beautiful colour. It’s a very matte lipgloss or at least as matte as a lipgloss can be. I didn’t think this colour would suit me but I really like the deep peach colour.

The last item this month is a hand cream from Sniffy Wiffy. I absolutely love what they stand for. In their words “the first company to bring the fight against breast and testicular cancer into bathrooms everywhere.” With all their products, there is the option to have it with or without a label. This label explains how to do a self-examination. A genius idea if you ask me. I got a cherry scented hand cream, it smells amazing and my hands feel so soft.

Yet another great beauty blogger box, I cannot wait to see what next month brings!

Mini Lush Haul #2

 

It’s been a month since I left my job (:() but obviously moving was for the good of my health and career and basically life!

Lush HaulAnyway, when I left, an Australian girl called Laura gave me 3 of her favourite Lush products when I left. Something so simple but one of the most sweetest gifts ever, and hello, Lush products!

She got me the Butterball bath bomb, You’ve Been Mangoed bath melt and Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar.

I’ve had none of these products before so it was really great to try something new!

Lush Haul

I’d been dying to try a bath melt for a few months since Laura mentioned them and since I love mango, to me this smells absolutely divine. Just from the feel of it, you can tell You’ve Been Mangoed is going to be amazing when melted in the bath. It is so smooth and has cocoa butter in it so it is also amazing on the skin.

Lush Haul

Butterball bath bomb isn’t one I have seen before but I feel like it is a hidden gem amongst the hundreds of other products you can get. While this doesn’t create much in the water unlike something like Intergalactic (!), it leaves the skin feeling baby soft and you feel great for ages after.

Lush Haul

The Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar is a product that I haven’t actually considered getting before. But man I wish I had, you smell absolutely incredible, just like strawberries, unsurprisingly it has real crushed strawberries in it! Again, because it has cocoa butter in it, your skin is all soft and smooth. My only negative comment is that is is one that can’t be left in the shower or under running water as it just completely disappears. I prefer to savour my Lush products as I can’t get them so easily so I was a little bit miffed when this one almost disappeared on me.

Obviously, I was completely chuffed when Laura gave me this gift, while it may seem “just Lush products”, it’s a topic we would talk about and recommend products to each other and I told her she had to go to the Oxford Street store!!

Blogger Beauty Box

Blogger Beauty Box

As it would seem I am often surrounded by beauty bloggers and when Vix Meldrew thought she would create a beauty box aimed at bloggers, I knew I had to have one!

She has put so much love and thought in to putting together these boxes and the outcome just goes to show that she has done very well!

She got branded boxes made with her logo printed on them which are ideal for keeping the products undamaged while being posted. There’s nothing worse than having beauty products broken in the post.Blogger Beauty Box

First impressions were very good. It is a good first box and I couldn’t wait to start using the products.

Dusty Girls “Pacific Ocean Shimmer” Lipgloss

Blogger Beauty Box

A product that I already have and absolutely love, I’m almost through my first one so I’m glad to have another. You can see my first review here.

MooGoo Cover-Up Buttercup Moisturiser

Blogger Beauty Box

A product that I would have chosen myself as I’m not a huge fan of moisturisers because I just end up sticky (TMI?) but I have really enjoyed using this product. Being at a festival last weekend meant that I was always conscious of the weather. So with this moisturiser having SPF 15 meant that I had a bit of extra time looking at the sun before worrying about burning.

W7 Eyelust Mascara

Mascaras are actually my weakness when it comes to beauty products, along with blusher, I have more mascaras than any other beauty product I own. So when I saw this I knew I would love it. I love mascaras that make my eyelashes look big (I mean doesn’t everyone?), so I was already on to a winner. Plus I love trying different types of brushes.

W7 Fluorescent Kiss Lipstick

I have only been using lipsticks for the last couple of years, it’s not something that I’ve felt the need to always wear. I think I would have to be seriously brave to wear this bright pink lipstick but it’s always good to have something like this handy.

I personally think that subscription boxes are always hit and miss no matter what kind they are and on this occasion Vicky has done extremely well. For £10 it is well worth the money! I’ve already signed up for the next box and I can’t wait to see what’s inside!

Magnitone #7DayChallenge

A few weeks ago I took part in #BHTwitterParty and I was lucky enough to be gifted with a Magnitone* Lucid which I was desperate to try! We got to choose between 4 colours; Plush Pink, Dazzling Blue, Aqua Green and Sunshine Yellow. I don’t think you even need a hint to know that I naturally chose pink.

magnitone lucid

I got a lovely letter in the box with my Magnitone which was a really nice touch to the gift. The Magnitone cleansing and exfoliation brushes offer the most up to date technology in deep cleansing your skin.  The easy-to-use brushes use gentle sonic vibrations to dislodge blackheads and whisk away dead skin cells, revealing a bright and glowing complexion.

I will just pop in here that I have suffered from bad skin for the best part of 10 years now and you can read about how thrilled I was when I use Sebamed’s products here. This has not affected my review at all as I have absolutely loved using my Magnitone.

I started of the 7 days with spots all along my chin and jaw line and I had one break out on my cheek, this is actually a good day for me! I also have a lot of blackheads on my nose which I hate and I’m really self conscious about. I just think they’re disgusting! I used my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish with the brush and the smell of this was incredible! The brush was really soft on my skin. I will admit it hurt a little but I know this is just because I have sensitive skin. My skin definitely felt a lot softer already which I was so pleased with, it’s never felt like this!

Over the next few days I noticed I was breaking out quite a lot and it was a little sore when I was using the brush, however I think this was due to the change in my skin care regime, having sensitive skin and also not having thoroughly cleaned my skin like this before. This will not stop me using it at all as I know that the break outs are just caused by getting rid of all the underlying crap in my skin. It’s going which is the most important bit!

I have definitely noticed that my skin was an awful lot softer which I am so happy with. I’ve also noticed that my blackheads have reduced! My nose looks a lot cleaner and even though this is a little thing, it means so much more than anything else! Now to tackle the spots!

I loved that when you use it, it beeps every 20 seconds and it turns off automatically after 60 seconds so you don’t use it for longer than necessary. It also comes with a great travel charger which is small and I will definitely be taking it with me when I go away!

I honestly cannot recommend getting a Magnitone Lucid enough. If you are looking for a cleaner complexion or you want to up your skincare regime to the next level then this is definitely worth it. I find that it does so much more than you could ever do by hand.

magnitone lucid

You can get your own Magnitone Lucid in any colour you fancy (but obviously pink is the best!) and get 20% off using the code Adele20 which means it is only £55.99 (RRP £69.99) which is quite frankly a bargain! Or go to this link here.

I think I’m going to do a little series about products for acne prone skin, it’s becoming a little mission of mine to improve the condition of my skin as I see a huge different when it has improved! Stay tuned for more! If there’s anything you recommend, do send them my way.

If you want to take part in the next Bloggers Hub twitter party, make sure you sign up to their website here.

*I was sent this product for review purposes and as always my views are my own.
