Eventhough I have an box overflowing with face masks I couldn't stop myself ordering the MEMEBOX Special #38 My Mask Box as soon as it was released, it arrived a week or so and its like my very own little box of paradise. I don't think there is one product I won't use.

There are 9 items in the box all together and 7 of them are full-sized (Yep you read that right 7 are full-sized).

LOVE me BEAUTY Box September

In September Love Me Beauty underwent what they branded a revolution. Out went the old much loved system of 3 menus to choose from and in came a selection of products all rated on a credit scheme. Every month you have 6 credits to spend,  travel sized or small samples are 1 credit each while full-sized, higher value or limited availability items are 2 credits. 

As I had 1 month left on my subscription it was perfect timing for me to try the new system out to see if I liked it. After a rather bumpy few days where the new website kept crashing whenever I tried to order, I did however manage to seek a peek at the product list once before it crashed and there seemed to be a wide selection of products available, but when I finally managed to place my order (a good few days after the launch) the few bits I'd had my eye on had been snatched up.

Just a few Sanctuary Spa bargains

Morning my lovelies if your anything like me you'll love a good wander round hunting out some great beauty bargains and today's bargain post is a killer especially if your a Sanctuary Spa Fan or just trying to be super organised present shopping for Christmas. 

I've mentioned before that my local Original Factory Shop just underwent a complete refit and have been expanding their beauty product section ever since and while nosing around I was super excited to find that they now stock the Sanctuary Spa brand. And not just 1 or 2 items but a whole section of shelving, and as they were more than half the RRP price as well.

Resurface & Refine Ultra Polish (RRP £12.00) - I've tried a few sample sizes of this product and loved them, it is great for getting rid of the micro-bumps on the back of my arms, so I didn't even think twice when I grabbed a full-sized tube of this as soon as I saw it and at just £3 it was amazing valve for money.

Magazine Freebies: Marie Claire & Instyle

While out shopping yesterday I picked up 2 of my favourite fashion and beauty magazine and they had some great freebie gifts included which I couldn't wait to share with you all so you can grab them for yourself next time your out. 

Galactic Fun Thanks to LootCrate

I am such a sci-fi junkie so Septembers LootCrate theme 'Galactic' was perfect for me and with every spoiler I saw I got me more and more excited. As alwaysp the box arrived near the end of the month, the prefect distraction from payday thoughts. As always we were all looking forward to finding out what goodies LootCrate had in store for us this month and we weren't disappointed.

GOOD THINGS Face Mask Review

Hi my lovelies it's been a while since I've done any product reviews but after treating myself to some lovely new goodies from Boots (you can read all about my haul here) I knew I had to share a few of them with you. 

Today's review is of the GOOD THINGS Manuka Honey Radiance Face Mask (100ml: RRP £5.99) which I managed to purchase at a 1/3 off for just £3.99 from The Manuka honey radiance mask has an impressive list of  natural ingredients, nutrient-rich white clay to draw out impurities and decongest skin, papaya extract to help enhance and brighten skin giving it a healthy glow, Manuka honey to help skin heal and Beeswax to help soften skin and protect it from irritants while also allowing it to breath.

New Products for a New Hair Colour.

Even since getting my haired coloured blond ombré a couple of months ago it's been really difficult to maintain and no matter how many intensive conditioning treatments I've used in a matter of days it's back to being dry, rough and  knotting within a day. So just over a month ago I decided to take the plunge and go back to my natural dark brown and in anticipation I decided to invest in some decent hair care products. I'd tried and loved the Rituals Daily Shampoo from a previous Love Me Beauty Box (see my original post here) so the Neal & Wolf range was my first thought.

After hunting around I ordered a selection of Neal & Wolf products from, when they arrived however there had been a slight mistake made at the warehouse and I received the wrong product, Beautybay soon put right though without too much hassle.
