Lush Boxing Day Sale 2016

Oh dear LUSH. After actually thinking you had got your act together last year with an online Boxing Day Sale that went relatively smoothly, you lose the plot this year with a queuing system that was useless!

After 4 hours getting nowhere nearer to accessing your website I broke my ‘no going to the shops on Boxing Day’ rule and drove to the Bury store. The silly thing was that after a 40 minute drive there, a couple of hours shopping and a stop for a pint, and a 40 minute drive back, when I got home again I was no nearer the front of the queue than I was at 10am (slow hand clap). At 4pm when I finally got on the site only a handful of sale products were left and the site was still incredibly glitchy.

Never mind LUSH, fortunately for me and many other your tireless staff at the Bury store kept the show on the road where your woefully inadequate site let customers down, and I bagged some great bargains including the following:

Like many families we are big fans of the Harry Potter books and films, but there is also some great spin off merchandise available for people who just cannot get enough of the Harry Potter phenomenon!

The Harry Potter Hogwarts Crest Light from Paladone (RRP £19.99)* is a brilliant buy for anyone who is mad on the schoolboy wizard and it is suitable for young and old fans alike. The light features the symbols of all four houses of Hogwarts; Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin, and the crest also includes the famous school motto in Latin across the bottom – ‘Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus’, which translates as ‘Never Tickle a Sleeping Dragon’. Made from acrylic the lamp is not easily broken and it looks lovely, even when not lit. Once lit it however it looks even more fabulous.

The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club

There are so many perfumes on the market it can often be difficult choosing a scent which suits you. Often you quickly spritz one on in the shop, decide you like it enough to purchase, only to get home and find that it doesn’t smell as nice as it did initially or that it doesn’t last long enough. If only there was a way you could try different scents at your leisure and in the comfort of your own home!

Discovery Club* from The Fragrance Shop allows you to do just that. Priced at just £5 per quarter the box is a great way to discover new fragrances and to try them before you buy and, better still, it is delivered straight to your door.

Beauty Trend Low Down – Microblading

Are you in search of the perfect brows? If you answered yes, you aren’t alone. Over the last few years the eyebrow industry has exploded with a myriad of new products designed to get you brows to rival Cara’s. But if you’re fed up of drawing then on or filling them in, either because you are short on time or struggle to get decent results, then a more long term solution may be for you!

That is where 2017’s hottest new beauty trend, Microblading, comes in. Microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where the pigment is applied under the skin using a specialist handheld blade tool which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine. Fine, hair-like strokes mimic the natural hairs in your brows, resulting in a really natural appearence. The results are semi-permanent and with the right care can last up to three years, with touchups every six months or so.

LOLA Make Up Satin Eyeshadow Duo

LOLA Make Up is a British designed make up brand, originally created for professional makeup artists but now available for us mere mortals to buy in M&S stores and also at The Libbie Club.

The latest LOLA Makeup product I’ve had the pleasure of trying is their eye shadow which has a beautiful shimmer which brightens the eye area and a creamy texture that really feels comfortable on the lids. The LOLA Makeup eyeshadows are highly pigmented to ensure a true colour when applied, while silicon particles and emollient oils offer an ultra-silky touch, excellent adherence, and help to prevent creasing.

Marula Oil is the latest beauty secret making waves in the industry. Harvested by hand in the most rural parts of South Africa it is nutrient rich and packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and omega oils which deliver nutrition, moisture and luminosity to your skin and hair, and I fell in love with the precious oil when I reviewed the Marula Facial Oil back in 2015.

Now the company behind the brilliant facial oil have introduced new products to the Marula Pure Beauty Oil range including the Deep Moisture Hair Mask which I had the pleasure of trying recently.
