Glossybox May 2014 - Superdrug Collabaration

There's nothing better than going home for lunch and seeing that the postman has delivered a parcel. This month, Glossybox have teamed up with Superdrug to celebrate 50 years of them being a beauty retailer.


 So, let's see what's inside...


I Love Cosmetics Strawberries & Milkshake Shimmer & Shine Lip Gloss £1.29 FULL SIZE

This isn't something I would've chosen myself but I like strawberry flavouring and it's a cute colour so i'll add it to my collection.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara £6.99 FULL SIZE

I haven't tried this particular Rimmel Mascara. I'm currently using the Scandaleyes Volume Flash so it'll be interesting to see how this one compares. The brush has an hourglass shape that is meant to create a 60's look. 

B. Quick One Coat Professional Finish Nail Polish £4.99 FULL SIZE

This is a brand exclusive to Superdrug; I haven't tried anything from them before but it's a nice minty teal colour (Shade 176 Mermaid). I've actually been on a nail varnish ban all year but I've still acquired about 6 thanks to Glossybox!

BlowPro Blow Up Daily Volumizing Conditioner 50ml - £2.13 Value

I love travel sized products that I can keep to take to the gym or travelling. I always choose volumizing products so i'm happy with this.


Superdrug Large Doughnut Ring £3.99 FULL SIZE

I have a couple of doughnut rings already but you can't go wrong with a couple of spare although this is the strangest 'blonde' coloured bun ring i've seen.


BONUS PRODUCTS

Garnier Oil Beauty Lotion 
Ghost Fragrance - Eclipse

Since the postage increase, Glossybox stands at a price of £10 plus £3.25 p&p totalling £13.25. The contents of this month's box has a value of £19.39 excluding the bonus samples however, four products are full size. 

Although, this box has a cheaper value than most other times, all of these products are things that I will use and are general useful things to have so i'm quite pleased!

What do you think of this month's selection?

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…
