June Glossybox

Just when I was trying to convience myself to cancelmy Glossybox subscription to try help save money they went and sent such an amazing one for June. So good I just had to post about it and show you what it includes.


Here's everything I got in the box;

BeautyPro Black Diamond - RRP £4.95 for 3
I have been looking for a mask like this in SO long. We can't deny the gross pleasure there is when someone takes off this masks to see all the blackheads still stuck on. It's also so affordable that I really hope this is a good one as I'd love to do one of these on a weekly/fortnightly basis.

111 Skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel - RRP £110 for the full size
Yeah, that price isn't a typo, this would actually cost over £100 for the full size! I physically dropped my jaw when I saw the price so will be interested to see if spending a lot more money really does give you a much better product.

Sleek Makeup Power Plump Lip Crayon - RRP £5.50
I've already tried this out and love it. Such a natural shade which really does give the tingles to plump your lips. A definitely your lips but better product.

Himalaya Since 1930 Purifying Neem Face Wash - RRP £3.29 for the full size
I've never heard of this company and have to say it doesn't fill me with much excitement. It does look cheap and is on the more affordable side so if it works well then atleast I could find myself saving a few pennies!

Batiste Stylist Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray - RRP 4.29
I was so excited to see this product in here as I've been intrigued by this range since I heard Batiste was moving into styling products. I am always on the look out for a product to give more volume in my hair so I've got my hopes set on this one. 

Manna Kadar Costmetics Sheer Glo Highlighter - RRP £22.50 for the full size
Im pretty sure I've heard of this brand before through a beauty box but cannot remember what it was or what I thought so it! I am getting more into highlighters now though so excited to try this one out.


Not only was there 6 amazing products but also a sneak peek of the new novel coming out by Louise Pentland. I've watched her on youtube for years now so have been getting excited about this book since she announced it so this was a very nice surprise!

New Favourite Highlighter

When looking through my recent posts for some inspiration I couldn't believe that I haven't actually shared with you my new favourite highlight so here it is!



'Light Up Your Face' Luminizer Palette from Essence offers 3 different highlighter shades. Admittedly, I've only actually used the one on the far right but I absolutely love it and think it's worth getting the whole palette just for this one shade. It gives the perfect balance of beautiful glow which isn't too dazzling and in your face. This also sits so naturally on top of make-up and last throughout the whole day without topping up at all. 



On the top is Essence and on the bottom is Mary-Lou Manizer

The whole palette is just £3 which just seems ridiculous! I'm yet to actually see Essence on the shelves anywhere but if you do then I would definitely recommend picking this one up. I've ever been using it more than my £17 Mary-Lou Manizer which just shows how great it is!

Empties #19

Once again my empty supplies has built up so I thought I'd share how I got on with some products which I haven't included in an empties post before.



Olay Beauty Fluid - Day
Olay is a brand which has been around since forever so you know you're in safe hands with them. This moisturiser is beautifully light, sinks into skin leaving it baby soft and smells amazing. It isn't the cheapest moisturiser but it certainly is still affordable and worth the extra few pennies in my opinion.

Lucas' Papaw Ointment
Similar to the 8 hour cream by Elizabeth Arden but for a third of the price, my heart broke a little when this tube ran out as I can't find it anywhere to buy in Scotland. VERY luckily, I actually received another one in this months Glossybox! As if they knew! (you can see what else I got in that Glossybox here)

Polaar Ice Pure Gentle Scrub with Artic Cotton
This is another item which I got from a beauty subscription box which I've really enjoyed using. It really was a gentle scrub with tiny balls to help exfoliate your face without being too harsh. I used every 3 days so or but it was definately gentle enough to use every day if desired.

Bourjois Healthy Balance Matte Powder
I cannot remember a time when I didn't use this powder. At the moment my skin is looking alright so on an every day basis I no longer bother with foundation but use this to help reduce my shine and red cheeks. It's got a great amount of coverage without looking really cakey. It is also quite slim compared to other compacts and has a mirror on the inside making it perfect for travel and top-ups during the day.

Ground Chocolate Orange Body Scrub
I think my favourite from all the empties...I can't get enough of this scrub! It smells A-MA-ZING!!!! It also leaves your skin feeling the most soft that it'll have felt since you were literally a baby. Since I started this bag Boots has started selling it so I'll be picking up another on my next visit.

Let me know what empties you've used up recently or if you've tried any of the above.

Life Update





So recently I got some very exciting life changing news which has taken up a lot of my time and maybe been the result in the lack of time I've spent on here. Basically, I've been cheating on beauty with homeware becayse...I bought a flat!!!

I have finally bought my own place and I couldn't be more excited! All the years of living with my parents to save money have paid off and I'm officially a home owner. The flat is still being built so I've got until September to prepare myself and get everything I need. This means that there'll probably be a few homeware hauls coming on here soon which I'm really looking forward too...and hopefully you are too?! 

If you have any homeware posts/recommendations then please leave them below. As I go through the process of buying a place I realise I don't have a clue what I'm doing which can make it very daunting so any advice would be very appreciated.
