Love Me Beauty June Box - Edition 3

Hi my lovelies today I have my review of the June Love Me Beauty box, although it's probably less of a review and more of a first impressions/thoughts type thing. 

To be brutally honest I wasn't overly keen on any of this months selections so made my decision over which box to choose based on which face mask I hadn't tried out yet, so once again it was Edition 3, I'm really starting to see a pattern I've definitely got a thing for this choice.

Birchbox World Cup Special Box June 2014

Happy sunny saturday my lovelies hope your all out enjoying your weekend. My June Birchbox arrived Thursday but between studying and my daughter coming home ill from school and being off school sick yesterday so I didn't get round to opening it til yesterday evening so I spent last night and this morning having a little play with all my new goodies and I have to say its a pretty great box. 

Before I start on about what goodies I received let's quickly discuss this month theme of Global Strikers inspired by the start of the World Cup, this month pouches are special edition in the Brazilian colours and all the samples this month are from all around the global... not one product in my box is from UK brands which I for one love. The little tips cards this month are of course packed full of beauty tips from around the global and the lowdown on a few of this months must have Birchbox samples.

Lush Dreamtime Bath Melt Review

Hiya my lovelies hope your good and enjoying your week so far. 

I've spent the past week full of cold/hay fever and felt pretty yucky and tired as I'm struggling to sleep properly so I decided to grab my Lush Dreamtime bath melt (from my first ever lush order) and treat myself to an extra long dip in the bath, candles included to help me relax and unwind.

You Beauty Discovery June First Impressions

Evening my lovelies hope you're all having a not so bad week so far... Sorry its been a little on the quiet side but I spent most of the weekend dozing on our sofa suffering from a mix of hay-fever and a cold. Thankfully Mr H kept me well supplied with mug of sugary tea or I think I would have dissolved into a teary mess, I felt awful. Thankfully now though I'm feeling better, still not 100% fighting fit but enough for the everyday routine to restart. 

For me the greatest part of the weekend was my Saturday wake-up call by our local courier delivering my You Beauty June Box. It's the one beauty box that never fails to make me happy even when I feel rotten. It definitely has magical properties... I'm thinking pixie dust...

Glamour Magazine Freebie July Edition

July's Glamour magazine literally just arrived through my door this morning and I was so excited to find another great freebie included.... this months is a full sized Eyeko Eyeliner worth £12.00. Yep you read that right £12.00, which is a serious bargain when Glamour Magazine only costs £2.00 at most. The eyeliner freebie is available in two shades Black and Navy, I received the black but I'm tempted to pick up another magazine just to get hold of the Navy. 

Inside my Glamour there are two Perfume/Aftershave samples; Armani Code Ice, the ad for which features a very yummy photo of Chris Pine which I stopped to stare at for like 5 minutes.... Well it would have been rude not too... And Prada Candy which I'm surprised to say is the first Prada perfume I've liked the smell of. There is also a sample of the new L'Oreal Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser and a pretty decent sized 8ml sample of the new Hawaiian Topic Satin Protection SPF15. 

Well I'm off to relax with a brew, a few biccies and read all about this years Glamour Women of the Year. 

So what you waiting for go out and grab yourself a copy and your freebie x 

Lip Factory "Spring has Sprung" May Box!

Hello my lovelies, its finally Friday and I can't wait for my Saturday morning lie-in tomorrow, it's going to feel even better than usual as I woke up full of cold this morning with the added little joy of sinus pains.... Here's hoping its just a 24hr thing but knowing my luck it's here to stay for at least a week...  Anyway on a happier note my Lip Factory arrived yesterday.. Yay! It feels like its been months since I placed my order at the beginning of May and I have to admit it hasn't disappointed.

For anyone that doesn't know what Lip Factory is you can find out every think you might want to know here, but the long and the short of it though, is that its a monthly make-up only subscription box from America and costs $32.00 (inc shopping) a month (this works out at roughly £17.49 my banks online converter). I decided to finally take the plunge and order myself one to test try the service before my Glossybox subscription runs out this month, will the idea of replacing my Glossybox with a Lip Factory box.

Red Magazines July Freebie

Hiya my lovelies just a quick post to let you all know that this months (July Edition) Red Magazine (RRP £4) is now on sale and its got a bonus freebie 5ml polish from Mavala worth £4.75. There is a choice of 4 different shades, unfortunately my local sainsburys only had 2 shades available (the blue and orange), as I have far too many blue polishes in my collection I picked the orange. Waikiki Orange is a really gorgeous, bright in your face polish, which will look fab on my toes this summer; it's also fully opaque in just one coat although I'll probably do 2 coats just to be sure. 

Also included within the magazine itself is a free sample of L'Oreals new Revitalift Laser Renew. There is also a 12 months subscription deal that can save you 75% on the retail price, subscribers are also entitled to various other subscriber only discounts and competitions. 

The magazine itself is jampacked with summer style tips from festival style must haves to beach looks for everyone. There's also a dazzling amount of interviews and beauty articles to keep me happily amused for a few hours at least.

TRESemme Platinum Strength 60 Second Shot Review

The second intensive hair treatment I tried from my Easter Superdrug Haul was the TRESemme Platinum Strength 60 Second Shot. It is a 15ml tube with a twist of nozzle which retails for £1.49. It's advertised as a deep conditioning treatment that not only strengthens your hair but also moisturises it leaving it smoother, stronger and healthier looking. It is designed to be left on for just a minute after normal shampooing and is a once weekly treatment.
