Unveiling May, and my final, Birchbox!

So, my 6 month gift subscription has come to an end, and what an explosive end…. What a fab box to end on!


This month BirchBox UK collaborated with Harper’s Bazaar to bring us items designed to prepare us for the coming Summer, whether we be taking a leisurely country walk or going wild at a music festival!


Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Mascara | £19.50

This jet black formula adds both volume and length to all types of lashes.  Sophie Bloomfield, Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Director, says, “It excels at providing separation and length without clumps.”

Wiggle the brush from the base of the lashes to the ends.  Use the tip to catch the inner-corner and bottom lashes.


Soigne Nail Lacquer | £11.00 * full size *

We’re hooked on this line and so is Sophie, “Non-toxic polish in classically great shades; this chic, new polish brand is a new essential!”

Start with a base coat, then apply two layers.  Follow with a top coat.


Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil | £39.00

This invigorating blend of pink grapefruit, rosemary and juniper berry will soften skin and uplift your mood.

Add a capful to your bath or smooth over your body before showering.  Or, follow Sophie’s lead and take it on the road: “It’s one of my must-have products for beating the post-flight sluggish feeling.”


Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo | Protect & Condition | £14.00 ea 

If you loved Protect & Detangle, you’ll go bananas for the newest members of the family! The sulfate-free formulas strengthen, nourish and protect strands.

Lather up in the shower with Protect & Shampoo, then follow with a generous dose of Protect & Condition.


Liz Earle Beauty Co. Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser | From £13.25 ♡

Sophie loves how this cult cleanser “leaves skin perfectly cleansed and prepped. The muslin cloth and polish ensure a beautiful glow.”

Massage cleanser into dry skin.  Run muslin cloth under hot water, wring out and buff over skin.

Should I re-subscribe, or should I shop around?????

I have entered my blog for “Best Newcomer” in the Cosmo Blog Awards with Next 2014 as we are less than 12 months old…. If you enjoy my ramblings, I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to give me a little vote…. Follow the link here: http://www.next.co.uk/cosmo-blog-awards/
