Well finally I’ve got my act together (sort of) to bring you the final installment and today I’ll be giving you the low-down on the products I used over late summer.

Birchbox – August 2016 Review

The August Birchbox has arrived with a difference… Instead of the beauty products being tucked inside a box they have treated us to a lovely neoprene makeup bag, that will be a handy addition to your summer travels.

Birchbox is a beauty subscription service that delivers a different selection of beauty samples and treats direct to your door each and every month. Costing £12.99 it’s a great way to try out the latest beauty products and discover new brands.

So what goodies were tucked inside my Birchbag this month?

April heralds the beginning of Spring, with longer days, warmer weather and an abundance of flowers. Quite fitting then that this month’s Birchbox theme is Blooming Marvellous and the box features a beautiful floral design from US stationery and lifestyle brand Rifle Paper Co.

Inside as usual is a selection of handpicked beauty samples, including one from the very popular Benefit Cosmetics. Read on for a glimpse inside my box.

Lookfantastic Beauty Box October 2015 Edition

The Lookfantastic Beauty Box reached a milestone last month when it celebrated its first Birthday with a very special box.

Well, I’ve got my sticky mitts on the October Lookfantastic box and can reveal it’s contents and whether the box is a hit or a miss.

Naturisimo Travel Essentials Box

Since I began blogging last year my awareness about what goes into beauty products and the impact certain ingredients may have in our bodies has really grown. Nowadays I’m much more likely to check labels to see what is inside a particular product and clearly many others are doing the same, as a result a wealth of organic, ethical and natural beauty brands have sprung up.

Naturisimo is a company that stocks only natural beauty products and recently they began bringing their customers Discovery Boxes – neat little boxes chocful of sample and travel sized products priced at just £9.95 – that give a taster of what they offer. Each box has a theme and the most recent one is the very aptly named Travel Essentials which, containing a great array of top-to-toe treats, is perfectly timed for the summer holidays.
