Beauty Product Discovery – Cohorted Breauty Box May 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

The last three months of Cohorted boxes were a bit of a shambles. They had an attempted break in, in March, which meant that they didn’t include one of the items in that box. They said they would include it in April which not only they didn’t but they also left out one of the April items out too. And now, the May box, arrived with one of the items being severely damaged. Cohorted has gone from the box IRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox Beauty Box May 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

I am expecting a good balance between skin care and makeup and lots and lots of colours! Glossybox May 2018 didn’t come in the iconic pink Glossybox. Instead, it came in a rare, one-off, design with colourful clouds and the word day dreamer on the top lid. It certainly fits the May month, where a lot of us areRead more

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

Birchbox May came in the standard draw-like box, with a palm tree leaf design, which matches the “preparation for summer” or the “say aloha to the first signs of summer” theme as they called it. As much as I love the “Palm Leaves and Warm Breeze” mood, there was something about this box that made me think it was on the uglier side. Is it just me? Nevertheless, the products contained were actually excellent for Birchbox standards!  Birhcbox is usuallyRead more

Everything you need to know about sunscreens and SPF

Originally posted on Bonds of Beauty :
Summer is almost here and with that it is time to up our sun protection skin care. But why do we even bother, what’s the fuss, can we not just enjoy the sun just this once? Sun light can damage our skin in many ways leading to premature or faster ageing, skin disorders and even skin cancer.  The damage can be as small and unnoticeable as reducing the concentration of certain must have molecules…

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

The Look Fantastic beauty box was the first beauty box to arrive, month after month, during 2017 and it seems that Look Fantastic is keeping this up this year too (except in January 2018). There is something really nice about getting the box in the first couple of days of the month, instead of the second week or mid-month, and I am glad that Look Fantastic is keeping the organisation up! Look Fantastic May came in a plain but colourfulRead more

If you read my previous posts you probably know that one of my ride or die, swear by, products is the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II Serum. This is a serum your are meant to use at night (but you can use it during the day too) before your moisturiser, to give your skin extra nutrients and some anti-ageing help. For me, it’s almost like skin medicine. After a month of daily usage (in combination withRead more

Which Tartelette palette? Amazonian Clay Toasted vs Bloom vs Matte. In depth review, functionality and ingredient lists

I’ve recently managed to get my hands on to some Tarte products and….where has Tarte been all my life?! Tarte has very minimal, almost not existent presence in the UK, but now you buy some of their products online, from the brand’s website. I, of course, first tried their famous concealer and absolutely loved it.
