Glossybox Beauty Box June 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Glossybox has been redesigning their pink iconic box to a slightly smaller size and this month it was the first time to receive the newer-smaller one. However, unless I’ve told you this you wouldn’t really have known as the box I received this month was only slightly smaller, not even half a centimetre, a difference that was not obvious to me until I literally put the old and new boxes on top of each other. I do wonder though ifRead more

Percy & Reed Session Hold Hairspray – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Don’t you hate those tiny little hairs at the base of your head, especially around your ears, that never seem to grow no matter how long your hair gets? I am almost convinced that different rules apply to them, than to the rest of our hair, and I am even more perplexed on how they defy gravity and manage to just point sideways, the opposite direction of the rest of my hair, over and over, day in and day out.Read more

Look Fantastic Beauty Box May 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Look Fantastic was once again the first beauty box to arrive this month and it’s a feature that I love about it. Beginning of the month and Look Fantastic is at your doorstep., whereas other beauty boxes usually arrive during the middle to end of the month. It might not seem that it matters, the box will arrive when it arrives, nothing is lost, but it sort of does. Look Fantastic comes with the freshness and excitement of a newRead more

Redken Extreme Shampoo & Conditioner – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analyses

There’s nothing like growing your hair long to make you appreciate, or hate, the hair products you use. I’ve been growing my hair, it’s up to my waist now, and so I’ve become a lot more aware of hair products, their ingredients and their true or false claims. However, whether you have long hair or short, your needs are fairly similar, healthy, nourished but also tame hair. I’ve been going through quite a few popular shampoos and conditioners recently butRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox Beauty Box January 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

First Glossybox of the year and I must say, I wasn’t thrilled. Not a bad box and not bad products but it just missed that little wow factor. This month’s theme was “beauty products that’ll make keeping our beauty resolutions easy” which is great but it really depends on what your resolutions are! This month’s box contained 5 products as always, of which 3 were full size and the other 2 were travel size. The products were, as seen inRead more

Battle of the Beauty Boxes – Conclusions from the 2018 Unboxing and Reviews on Birchbox, Glossybox, Look Fantastic and Cohorted

What a year for beauty boxes has it been! This year I’ve subscribed and tried the most beauty boxes I’ve ever have before but also unsubscribed from a lot too. I’ve tried Sophie’s Normal and Luxury beauty boxes which were nice but still at their infancy. I’ve tried the Pink Parcel and even though I didn’t write about it, I thought it was more worth the cash than Birchbox . I’ve also tried the MLB Box (aka My Little BeautyRead more

Redken Heatcure Hair Mask – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Haircare doesn’t receive as much attention as skincare and it is a shame as the state of your hair, your general hairstyle and even the way you choose to wear your hair with certain looks can make a huge difference. I always looked for nutritious shampoos and conditioners and did my usual “I’m a chemist on the lookout for ingredients” thing but admittedly, beyond that, haircare wasn’t huge for me, at least not to the level that I take myRead more

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

Beauty SOS! Another Glossybox is here and this month’s theme was “an emergency supply of haircare, makeup and skincare”. It is basically an essentials type of box which is nice all year around, especially for stocking up before the winter festivities. Since it was all about essentials, the design of the box remained as the iconic pink Glossybox without any special prints. I personally love these boxes, they are very sturdy and useful for storage and gifting and in generalRead more
