Glossybox January 2013


Considering it's a New Year and a new start, I actually had higher hopes for my Glossybox. This month's box is the 'Detox Box'. Delivery was quicker than usual which was good but then i'm just impatient!


Lacoste Perfume Sample - 30ml, £33

Tiny perfume samples aren't something that I really like. This ones a flowery scent and is nice but it's definitely not a luxury sample and I've never gone out and bought any of the full sized versions of miniature samples that i've had or even used them up for that matter.

MONU Micro Exfoliant - 100ml, £14.50

This exfoliator sample is 30ml and i'm happy with it. I'll definitely use it but it wouldn't be something that i'd go and purchase myself. Well, we'll see if it surprises me!

SANCTUARY SPA Thermal Transformation Mask - 50ml, 75ml, £27.50

I prefer bottled samples as packets seem to accumulate with me and I don't get round to using them. 

BM Beauty Finishing Powder - 4g, £8

This looks quite shimmery so, I think i'll have to try this before giving an opinion!

MURAD Hydro Dynamic TM Ultimate Moisture for eyes - £57 for 15ml

Here we go then, my favourite product in the box. I'm really starting to think about eye creams at the moment. I always horrendously rub my eyes and I think it might be starting to take it's toll. I should know better but I can't help it! So, I used this last night before I went to bed and i could really feel it 'tightening' my skin. The sample size is 3ml which is worth £11.40. I'm impressed with this so far!

Finally, the cute addition:

The sleep mask :)

Without this, this month's box wouldn't have looked like much but nothing can beat the excitement of seeing what you get every month!

  1. I've never subscribed to one of these but I am tempted as I do like surprises! I quite like little perfume samples to carry around in my bag, but I do prefer choosing my own :)

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes...
Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to.
My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist.

Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times I had left the house without ma…

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox. 
Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon!

Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park' Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great brush and this plum colour is perfe…

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver!

In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT.

Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted!

I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.

Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18


Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14



Other items I considered buying:

This grey jewelled clutch bag caught my eye and was £20.
I was reall…
