Wellthos Health and Fitness Box August 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

This month’s Wellthos post is a little more sad that it should be but I want to keep you up to date. This is my 15th Wellthos box and unfortunately, my last. I will not be covering this box anymore for financial reasons. If you want to sponsor these posts then contact me or please use the donate button at the bottom of this page. This month’s Wellthos box was the typical branded cardboard box with no special design. WellthosRead more

Triyit Discovery Club August 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

A couple of months have passed by and I’ve now received another Triyit box! If you missed the previous one I received click here.   Triyit is a product discovery club where you can try new products, at home, for free. It is a little bit like Influenster but Triyit is actually UK based. All you need to do is go to www.triyit.co.uk and create a personal profile, where you let them know of your likes and dislikes, personal habits like exercisingRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox Beauty Box August 2018 – Unboxing and Porduct Reviews

Glossybox was the fourth beauty box to arrive this month and even though it’s usually one of the first, this wasn’t a disappointment at all because…what a gorgeous box! This month Glossybox went for a pride theme, standing together and embracing individuality. It’s the first beauty box in the UK (at least out of the 5 I subscribe to) to have ever gone for a pride theme and I absolutely love it. Good job Glossybox! However, what I love evenRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Cohorted Beauty Box August 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

The Cohorted box was the third to arrive this month which was a little surprising as it is usually one of the last ones. Nevertheless, that doesn’t really mean anything, better early than late right? Cohorted is one of the most expensive UK beauty boxes, retailing for £35 but also promising a bunch of travel to full size, higher end beauty products. It might sound like a lot of money to invest in a beauty box but you get moreRead more

Real Techniques Makeup Sponges – Are the different colours and shapes just gimmicks?

In a previous post titled “Battle of the makeup sponges – Beauty Blender vs Real Techniques vs B.“, I compared three makeup sponges, and it turned out that the middle and cheap options were better than the expensive Beauty Blender. Since then I’ve been loving the middle-priced Real Techniques Complexion Miracle Sponge (the orange one – although they are all called complexion miracle sponges) and so I became curious to try the rest of the Real Techniques sponges. The Real Techniques spongesRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box August 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

The second box to arrive this month was the Birchbox. Even though it’s the least favorite of mine, it’s still a good way and value for money for exploring new beauty products. This month’s theme was “Live a life beautiful” and it was a collaboration with Etsy. Birchbox collaborated with 10 Etsy sellers to create a collection of 10 different Birchbox designed boxes where each box shows a design of the seller’s passion and creativity. I love the idea butRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Look Fantastic Beauty Box August 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

The Look Fantastic beauty box was the first to arrive this month, again, and it’s become something that I really love. It’s a huge perk that you don’t have to wait long for this box but also the fact that it is consistent. So far, with the exception of Januray 2018, the Look Fantastic box has always arrived first, before all the other beauty boxes I subscribe to, and by a difference. But Look Fantastic didn’t stop there. They’ve improvedRead more

The Chemistry Brand Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate – In-Depth Review, Ingredient Analysis and a Chemist’s Verdict

Hyaluronic acid is one of the best skincare ingredients. It is a naturally occurring compound in our bodies but it is most famous for it’s presence in enhancement fillers, to soften out wrinkles or plumb up lips.

Mio Future Proof Active Body Butter – In-Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Skincare is absolutely everything. Without skin in a good and healthy condition it doesn’t matter how good your makeup products or skills are. However, while many of us try to keep our skincare up to speed a lot of us forget that the rest of our body is skin too. This year my mission has been to find a good body cream but admittedly the task wasn’t very easy. Bodycare has not received as much attention as makeup or faceRead more
