Glossybox UK March 2015

I've had my Glossybox subscription since the 2nd box that they released. I've just looked up when that was sent out which means it was June 2011 that I received my first box so over the years i've had 45 of these parcels!



As the postage has crept up over the years I now pay £13.25 monthly and every now and again I contemplate whether or not to cancel the subscription and just spend £15 on beauty products in Boot's instead. However, I'm super pleased with this month's selection as the products and shades that I have  received are all ones that I will use.


NAOBAY Moisturising Peeling

This is an organic peeling milk from the Spanish eco-brand NAOBAY. I've just used it and i'd say its a gentle moisturising exfoliator.

Dove Advanced Hair Series Youthful Vitality Shampoo & Conditioner

These are perfect to keep hold of for travelling. I'm pleased that there is both a shampoo and conditioner because i'm sure in the past other brands have only sent a sample of one or the other!


Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

Essence have recently released their products into the UK market so I assume they are trying to increase awareness of the brand. The packaging is pretty and feels to be of good quality so I look forward to giving this a try.

ncLA Nail Varnish

Although I haven't tried this brand before the colour is a perfect shade for me and great for spring/ summer.

Sleek Make Up Pout Paint 

I've had a couple of these before from Glossybox but in a super bright red and a hot pink. I've actually only used them for fancy dress so i'm pleased to have a much more wearable colour of a soft pink - Rosette 158.

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

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

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 Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times
