Room Improvements

Some of you may now know that I not only have this blog but I've also got a YouTube channel which you can check out here. I recently put up a new video all about the changes which I've made in my room to help make it more of a grown-up bedroom rather than the bedroom which I've had since I was 6! 

There's also some news at the end of a big life update so click below to find out what it is!

Beauty Pro Black Peel Off Mask




I have been wanting to try one of these masks for so long now so when one arrived in my June Glossybox, which you can read about here, I couldn't wait to try it out. 

This one is from Beauty Pro and I have to admit, I wasn't overly impressed. I think this may have been down to myself not applying enough of the mask so had too much of a thin layer to really have a huge affect, or maybe my expectations were just too high.

When the mask dried it peeled off with ease, none of this painful tearing at the skin as I've seen on so many YouTube videos. There was parts of the mask which didn't fully dry so it didn't peel off and instead I had to wash it off. This was especially on my chin which was annoying as I definitely have enough blackheads there that could've done with being removed!

I had used this primarily on my t-zone and as much as I was slightly disappointed, it did leave my skin feeling SO smooth and soft on my forehead so I wouldn't completely rule it out. I would actually be interested in buying this again and use a thicker layer and maybe leaving it on longer to see if it works better second time round. 

Let me know if you have any recommendations of black peel off masks as I'm clearly still on the hunt for my perfect match!

June's Birchbox

Following on from last week's post of what I got in June's Glossybox, which you can read here, I thought I'd keep things even by doing a post on what I got in June's Birchbox as yet again, I can't decide which was my favourite!



MeechNMia Brow Liner -  RRP £12.99
The first of the full sized items from a brand I've never heard of. I got this in the shade #22 which is the middle shade which seems to be a fairly alright shade for me. I don't usually use pencils for my brows as I don't have time for that during the week but this may be worth a shot when I've got more time of my hands. 

Ecotools Perfecting Blender Duo - RRP £9.99
And the second full sized item! I was obsessed with my Real Technique's makeup sponge and haven't actually used any other's so I'd be interested to see how this one compares. I also love how you get two different sizes for different application styles.

Cowshed Cow Pat Hand Cream - RRP £8
The third and final full sized item! I really like Cowshed products and I'm currently running out of my hand cream on my desk at work so this came just in time.

Scrub Love Coconut Oil Body Scrub - £11.95 for the full size 
I got the charcoal version of this in last month's Glossybox and love it. It's a brilliant rough scrub which buffs away your dead skin and really brings life back to it. The charcoal one does leave nasty looking black marks in my shower so I'm hoping this scrub will be just as good but without the mess it leaves behind.

Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum - RRP £32.50 for the full size
A brand which I think everyone knows and loves. I couldn't wait to try this so have done so for the past few nights and I'm very pleased to see that a little goes a long way as I'm really enjoying using this so far!

Although it's called Birchbox, this month is more of a Birch-bag as it also comes with a beauty pouch for you to store all your travel essentials. A nice wee extra just in time for any Summer adventures!
