April I Love This Box

April I Love This Box also arrived last week and once again I was really impressed with what was in it. This has been a consistently impressive beauty box and I have reccommended it to a few friends who have loved it just as much. Here’s what was in this month’s box: Avado Organic Gel ExfoliantThere are so many fantastic new organic brands popping us and I have found these beauty boxes have been a great way of trying a few out. A facial exfoliant is a regular part of my routine  ...

March Beauty Basket

So after much drama my Beauty Basket for March arrived with just two days of April left to go! It’s such a shame Beauty Basket’s customer service isn’t great as it really lets down what would otherwise be a fabulous sample service. It will be interesting to see how they go over coming months as Glossy Box also had many issues and customer service problems which may explain why they have now merged with Lust Have It after their April box. With so many beauty subscription  ...

Project Pan Update #4

Time for another update! I get more and more excited each time I do one of these as it means I am nearing the end (well just 10 more products to go anyway). This time I used up: Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3This is a staple item for me. I find it’s the only thing that keeps my oily skin under control all day long. I go through it quite a bit so I normally buy it from Strawberry Net however I am a big sucker for the Clinique GWPs so might pick it up when there is one on offer at Myer or  ...

NOTD – Essie Carry On

This was the colour I received in my March I Love This Box and with the rain falling outside it felt like a good time to try out more of a Winter colour on my nails. I quite like dark polishes in cooler months and this was a shade that I really liked the look of. It’s a very beep burgundy with a hint of purple and with a few coats it builds up to be a nice alternative to a black or navy nail. Have you tried this colour? Hope you are having a beautiful day!

April Lust Have It

 This arrived late last week but this is the first chance I have had to share it with you. The first thing I noticed when I opened the parcel was the adorable cosmetic bag all the products came in this month. I’m not sure if this was a one off or will be a permanant addition but it’s very handy and the perfect size for taking some essentials on the go. Here’s what was in the bag: Spa Fresh Blends Romantic Discovery Bathing RitualThis is a little pouch of a bath powder  ...

Project Pan Update #3

Time for another project Pan Update. This marks the half way mark for me now and I can’t believe how quickly it has flown by! I have picked up just a few things that were too good to pass up (and put them in a box until I’m done)but overall I’m really proud of how well I’ve stuck to this so far. I think once I’m donw I will have a break for a month or so then may do it again. Of course it helps that I have won a few competitions lately which have meant  ...

April Bellabox Time!

I can’t believe it’s that time of the month already! The beauty baskets are arriving again. I seem to always get Bellabox as the first one each month so it’s arrival marks the start of my parcels! Woohoo! The first thing I noticed was they seem to have gone back to using a box rather than the bag like last month. I can’t say I’m really bothered either way – I have a million spare cosmetic bags lying around and have just been gicing the boxes to my sister.  ...

Product of the Day – Clearasil Daily Gel Wash

A few weeks ago I was sent the this daily cleanser as part of a Beautyheaven Trial Team. I love being invited to try new products and the trial team is a great way to get to review products I might not otherwise have picked up or new ones I haven’t yet heard of. I was so impressed with this I thought it was only fair to share! The invitation to try this wonderful cleanser couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I have always battled breakouts as both a teen and an adult and my  ...

Product of the Day: Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Facial Cream

After including this in the products I have used up while doing Project Pan I decided it was very much deserving of it’s own product review. This is one of those items it is taking all of my willpower not to repurchase before Project Pan is complete! I first heard of this while watching Amerixe’s video on YouTube and thought it sounded like something that might be well suited to my skin. I have some acne scarring and uneven skintone on my face and it is something I am always  ...
