If you purchased the last Latest in Beauty Glamour Beauty Edit Box you will know these boxes are always amazing value, and as with the previous boxes the box contains a good selection of iconic beauty brands, many of which are full sized. Mine arrived today, much to my delight, and I immediately unboxed everything for a closer look. Let me share my initial impressions with you.

Mio Skincare’s Big Beach Countdown

In April I blogged about the new range of Mio Skincare aimed specifically at the fitness market. Sadly, re-reading that post I didn’t really achieve the goal I’d set myself of a fitter, healthier lifestyle but I did discover a love of Mio Skincare and the fresh, zingy scents.

Last week I was just browsing the You Beauty Discovery website and saw that they had a new “Big Beach Countdown” Limited Edition Box featuring Mio Skincare. I immediately bagged one because, despite a couple of the extras in the box being of little value to me (I’ll explain that in more detail later), it is still amazing value.

Today’s Manicure – Nails Inc & China Glaze

Thanks to the gardening I did at my local Children’s Centre yesterday, where I singlehandedly planted up three raised beds and 14 containers, Wednesday’s manicure didn’t last very long at all. It’s not that the polish I used isn’t hard wearing, it was literally the fact that I never use gardening gloves, which is a really bad habit as handling compost is very drying to the hands and wrecks havoc on my nails.

Good Things Skincare

My local Boots doesn’t have a very large range and some things were out of stock so I settled on products from the Superfruits range and chose Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser, Face The Day Moisturiser, and Instant Dark Circles Concealer.

A Spa Experience – Dead Sea Spa Magik

Many years ago when the new Bull Ring shopping centre opened in Birmingham a Finders spa launched in the new Debenhams store. It was my first encounter of the Dead Sea Spa Magik brand and as a poor student back then the reasonably priced products were just within my budget (if I drank slightly less beer)! I remember I particularly loved the Salt Brushing as it really made my skin glow and was highly moisturising. It was also a great boost after a night out when it’s fair to say I would never be feeling up to much.

But that was over ten years ago and a lot of other Spa At Home contenders have entered the market since. Does Dead Sea Spa Magik still win me over? Finders Spa kindly sent me a Top To Toe Kit* to try out and review.
