If you’re still wracking your brain looking for an inexpensive gift for a teen or just want a little stocking filler for your partner help is at hand; Makeup Revolution have your back with their new Colour Blocks.
I’m going to say something controversial today; I don’t get makeup crazes like winged eyeliner, contouring or strobing, or the way people go mad trying to achieve them!
I’m not alone either; even some celebrity makeup artists have joined a backlash, notably Pati Dubroff who took to Instagram to make a stand against contouring and the way in which women were layering on thick makeup to give the illusion of a so-called perfect bone structure.
December’s So Susan LipLove bag is here. This month’s theme is ‘I Love Peace & Joy’ and as usual the pretty little canvas makeup bag is emblazoned with a fitting quote – this month from Lao Tzulip;
“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
The month of December is all about being surrounded by family and friends, looking back upon the year that has passed and planning for the year to come, so let’s enjoy the last two weeks of 2015 and enjoy delving into the contents of this month’s LipLove bag!
Candles are one of my weaknesses, but recently I’ve found some of the big name scented ones just don’t do it for me; their scents are artificial and overpowering, and after just half an hour I find my head feeling stuffy, so when I discovered La Montaña candles through The Libbie Club it was a revelation. A love affair with these fabulous quality candles, handmade in Spain, was soon born.
If there’s one month I particularly like to indulge myself in it’s December. Those long dark evenings really do call for decadent scents, flickering candlelight and sumptuous bubble baths. With that in mind You Beauty Discovery brought their subscribers a short-list packed full of luxurious beauty products, guaranteed to deliver a little sparkle to these cold winter months.
Heaven is an all-natural organic range of skin-care headed up by beauty therapist Deborah Mitchell and it is a range I first discovered earlier this year when I had the pleasure of trying her wonderful Hydrogels and then the sublime Velvet Soft Hand Cream.
Heaven skincare targets various skin issues, from dullness, blemishes and lack of firmness, with each product seeking to replenish moisture allowing your natural beauty to shine through and today I’m so excited to bring you another product from the range.
December is a month full of festivities so subscription boxes have really been pulling out all stops to deliver amazing boxes of goodies. Pink Parcel promises to be no exception to this rule, and over the last week or two has been dropping little hints about what the December box has in store.
With my appetite well and truly whetted all there is left to do was patiently wait for my parcel to land, and today’s the day. So what is tucked inside amidst those necessary sanitary items?
Sweet Cecily’s is a small company based in Whitby, North Yorkshire, that specialises in handcrafting small batches of natural bathing and skincare products, and this year they feature some extra special gifts alongside their usual lines.
One of the gifts especially launched for Christmas 2015 is the Secret Santa Christmas Parcel (RRP £17.95)*. This one is particularly brilliant as it showcases three different products from Sweet Cecily’s range, including a Sea Buckthorn Berry Handcream (50ml), a limited edition Chocolate Orange Lip Balm (10ml), and a Christmas Pudding Bath Bomb (170g). Also tucked inside is a little bag of spices perfect for making Mulled Wine and bringing a bit of extra cheer to festivities.
Fresh off the back of my Birchbox Spoiler comes my actual ‘All That Glimmers’ December Birchbox, which arrived this morning to much excitement.
I was hoping the December line-up would deliver some much needed glitz and glam and indeed it has; along with some post-party recovery treatments. So let’s take a peek inside.
The December Birchbox is just around the corner and will soon be hitching a ride on Santa’s sleigh to arrive on our doormats. This month the theme is appropriately named All That Glimmers and we are promised a selection of exciting beauty treats, perfect for prepping us for the party season. So lets take a sneaky look inside!
