Garnier Perfect Blur 5 sec

Hi Lovelies,

Hope your all having a great week!
Today I have a quick review of a product I purchased awhile ago now and have been using for quite some time.

The Garnier Perfect Blur 5 sec

1 2
It is a smoothing base perfector. It claims to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, imperfections, pores and shine in just 5 seconds! Using light reflectors. “Immediately skin looks younger”

I personally struggle with very enlarged pores on my nose 😦 they are so big and no matter what I do they never seem to appear minimized.
Big pores are my enemy!
I also get a very oily nose (from the sebum in the pores) and occasionally get pimples around that area aswell. However I also get peeling dry skin on my nose too either from using really drying products to try minimize pore size or to help with pimples orrrr from….. well I hate to admit it but yes it is true I cannot help myself and sometimes squeeze my nose to clear the pores! I know that this is naughty and I shouldn’t do it but as I said I can’t help it, it’s like the devil on my shoulder is encouraging me whilst the angel is on strike.
Point is some days the skin on my nose is not co-operating and it needs a bit of extra help to make the foundation sit better and look flawless. Plus I will try just about anything that says it helps to minimize or ‘blur’ the look of pores!
So when I saw this at Priceline I obviously had to try it. I used a little on back of my hand whilst in store and as it says it blurred the look of pores and smoothed in less than 5 seconds.
I liked the feel of it and went ahead and purchased.

I now use this product daily on my nose area only. You can use it all over your face however I only require it on my nose.
I find it a great product for what I need it to do. Smooth my nose area and blur any imperfections and pores.
It doesn’t necessarily fully cover or disguise the pores but it does help minimize the look of them and make them not so obvious when your up close and personal looking right at my face! ;o
It gives a base for my foundation to stick to when foundation just won’t stay.
And makes my skin feel silky smooth like velvet.

Price is not exactly cheap at about $17 for 22mls.

If you have tried this product yourself I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
Or if you have ideas, remedies, products or anything that I can try for these damn pores I would also love you forever if you shared your knowledge with me 🙂

Cleansing, skincare, makeup removing, night routine

Hello Beauties,
This is a post that I had started some time ago now and I wanted to still post it because it is still somewhat relevant.
My night routine is always changing with life. When I’m working I tend to have a different cleansing routine to when I’m at home and don’t leave the house for the day.

So today I’m gonna chat to you about one of my older personal skincare/cleansing routines.

I’m sure you’ve all heard many times before that you should always cleanse your face and take your makeup off at the end of the day before going to sleep. You should never sleep with your makeup on, why? Well let me tell you why…

Our skin in covered in pores, your pores secrete sebum that helps protect skin, moisturise and removes dead skin cells and other irritants from our pores.
However if you have makeup on you are blocking the pores and not allowing the sebum to come through and then possibly helping start acne and clogged pores, which could also then lead to enlarged pores!! And take it from me… you do not want enlarged pores! They naastay!
Also during the night time is when your skin is repairing itself and if it’s covered in a layer of foundation it’s not going to be able to do that effectively.

Having worked in the beauty industry I always get asked the question, “why do I need to have a makeup remover and a cleanser? Can’t I just use one of them?”
Well ladies and gentleman that brings me to the rule of 2 step cleansing or double cleansing, there are many names for this process.
It is the process of removing the makeup on your face before and as well as using a cleansing product to cleanse skin.
If you are not removing makeup and dirt from your face then your other products are not going to work as effectively.
To get optimal value from your cleansers, serums, treatments, moisturisers etc. you need to first remove makeup dirt and any impurities on your face that you may have captured throughout the day, this can be done using a facial wipe, makeup remover on a cotton pad, makeup removing lotions, balms, creams or oils etc. Second step is to cleanse your face with any cleanser of your choice cream, gel, lotion, foaming, oil etc. there is endless options.

Anyway moving on I like to change up my skincare routine every now and then to try new products and new ways of cleansing my skin to find what works best for me.
This was my routine I use to follow. I’d do this every night, especially if I had been at work and had a full face of makeup on.

First off I like to make sure I have my hair up and out of my face because there is nothing more annoying when your trying to wash your face and your hair is getting stuck to you!

micellar To start removing my eye makeup I use Garnier Micellar water. Also one of my favourite products.

4
Soaking 2 cotton pads in it and then holding them onto my eyes for about 20 seconds to let the product soak in and lift the eye makeup. I then gently wipe any excess off of my eyes.

2If I have really heavy eye makeup I like to use Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, but I prefer the Micellar water.

7
I then use these smartskin facial cleansing wipes to remove as much makeup off of my face as I can.8
I then wet my face and massage my Garnier daily cleansing gel wash onto my face and then rinse my face off.1
Depending whether I feel I need it or not I will then sometimes use St. Ives apricot scrub.

3
It is an exfoliating scrub however I don’t recommend using it every day, about 2 times a week should be enough depending on your skin.
You should never exfoliate your skin every day, it is too much and too harsh for the skin. You can cause irritation to your skin or acne.

5

After I have finished cleansing I then soak a cotton pad in my Garnier daily pore reducing toner and wipe that over my face, focusing on my T-zone.

After I have removed my makeup and cleansed my face I then go ahead with applying my skincare products

DSCN1343

I use Advanced Night Repair Serum all over my face

ANR eye

I then use Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum around my eye area

day wear
And then follow up with moisturiser. Moisturising for me is very important even if I skip my serums I always moisturise or my skin feels dry, tight and uncomfortable.
I either use Estee Lauder DayWear which is my favourite all time moisturiser.

6Or I use Cetaphil moisturising lotion.

I always finish up with some sort of lip balm/moisturiser which ever is closest at the time.
I get dry lips easily and I always feel more comfortable with lip balm on.

So this is what I have been doing as of recently and I find that it is working great for me and my skin.

Have you used any of these products? What do you think of them?
I would love to hear about your cleansing routine, leave me a comment below telling me what products you like to use.

Hope you all have a great day!

‘Lust Have It’ Unboxing/Review September and October 2015

Hello Beauties!

So my life has been fairly hectic lately, amongst working hard with Christmas coming up, moving house and personal/family stuff going on I have not found time to get my posts up in time 😦 I’m sorry for being a bad blogger xx

So this post as you can guess from the title is going to be a combined September and October lust have it unboxing review.
Because I should have my November box by next week… hopefully.

So on with the first one….

September

 

 

1

This months box came with a black mesh zip up bag, something a little different. However mine was broken and has a tear down the side 😦
I’m not jumping with joy over this bag this month as I have received doubles and some of the products just didn’t work for me.

For those who are unfamiliar with Lust Have It, It is a monthly subscription box with 5-6 deluxe sized beauty items and sometimes full size products. Priced at $19.95 a month including postage and handling.

3

Designer Brands, Twist n Go. RRP $4.99. Full size.

I have already received one of these in a previous box. It does work well if I want to quickly remove my nail polish without putting remover onto a cotton ball.
However make sure you never let it tip on the side as it will leak everywhere and the smell is impossible to get rid of :/

 

4

White Glo, Proffesional Choice toothpaste, 24g. RRP $5.49. Sample size.

Toothpaste…. The whole cosmetics/makeup that Lust Have It is supposed to have seems to be getting few and far between 😦
I guess it’s good that its whitening toothpaste but it’s not really going to help people with discoloured teeth they are better off going to get it professionally done.

 

5

Your Tea, skin magic tea, 1 tea bag. RRP $35 USD. Sample.

Got this magic skin tea and to be honest I have no idea what it does apart from being a tea to drink because when I went on their website they had no information on this tea and the benefits of it ? Plus they don’t have anything in stock of any of their teas or teaware.
It also says on the info card that I should have received 6 tea bags however cannot find the other 5 :/

 

7

Ofra, Lip Liner Wine. RRP $19.50. Full size.

To be honest I would be annoyed if I had paid almost $20 for this lip liner. I saw the name of the colour (wine) and got excited because I’m really into dark red/plum/wine colours at the moment but when I saw it I realised how light it is, I swatched it and was disappointed that it came out a more nude/brown colour.
I then put it on my lips, at first it didn’t go on it was so dry it pulled across my lips and was like dried chalk, just wasn’t working.
As you can see from the photo below the colour on my lips is not very dark and wine like at all it is more of a nude shade.

1012

 

 

2

Kerastase, shampoo and hair masque. RRP $42 (shampoo) $62 (masque). Sample.

I will eventually try this shampoo and Conditioner after I finish the other Kerastase hair products I have received. Have heard that Kerastase is a good brand for hair products.

 

8

UB Cosmetics, Tint Stick. RRP $23.00. Full size.

I swatched this and it is nice for a light pink stain to your lips however is slightly drying, but the colour definitely stayed.

9

 

October……

Came with a pink mesh zip up bag.
When I opened this one I was rather excited as there were a couple good products I was interested in.
Unfortunately this months box didn’t include the info card 😦 but I have managed to track down the info for you anyway.

1

 

5

Hair & Me hair rejuvenation treatment. RRP $19.95. Full size.

I have not heard of this brand before but am always willing to try hair treatments.

 

4

Flormar nail polish. RRP $12. Full size.

I got excited for the nail polish because a girl can never have enough nail polishes right!?
I got the colour 228 it is a dark maroon/purple colour? something I would definitely use especially on my tootsies as I love dark colours on my toes.
I have not tried it yet so I don’t know how the quality is but fingers crossed it’s good.

 

7

Bioderma Sensibo light. RRP $32.99 full size 40ml. Sample size.

According the bioderma website this is a daily moisturising and protecting treatment for sensitive skin that increases the tolerance threshold.
I always like to try new moisturisers and the small sample sizes are perfect for trips away from home. Will definitely try this moisturiser.

 

89

Flormar eyeliner pencil. RRP $19.95. Full size.

Slightly disappointed with this product as I got the colour green… a colour I would never wear or ever be able to pull off with my skin tone and eye colour.

 

23

Lust Have It Highlighter compact. RRP $29.95. Full size, Exclusive.

When I saw this I was super excited. I am really into highlighters at the moment and am obsessing over theBalm’s Marylou Manizer and my new BH cosmetics highlighters I recently got.
When I saw this I instantly thought it looks just like Marylou manizer and was so excited to try and when I swatched it was fairly happy with the result. The next day I put it on with my work makeup and was sadly very disappointed… I could not see it at all! I don’t know what happened to the shine and glow but it was just not there and I tried looking in many different lights.
I haven’t bothered using it since.

 

6

Atkins chocolate candies. RRP $9.00 in 5 pack box. Bonus.

Yes you read that correctly I got candy in a beauty subscription box, they must have run out of makeup…….
Even worse it’s ‘diet’ ‘low carb’ chocolate 😦

 

5

Your Tea, skin magic tea, 1 tea bag. RRP $35 USD. Sample.

Same as my september box I received only 1 teabag and am still missing the other 4? Maybe they are going to give me one each month. (my subscription’s almost finished) I’ll only end up with 3 tea bags lol.

 

That brings me to the end of my 2 lust have it unboxing’s. As usual, if you have any questions or opinions/personal experiences with any of these products or would like a review on any specific products let me know, I would love to hear about it in the comments below!

‘Lust Have It’ Unboxing/Review July 2015

Hello Beauties!

You know it’s that time of the month…  Nooo guys not that time of the month!!!
My lust Have It box has arrived!  What did you think I was talking about!
This month it arrived in a pink mesh zip up bag again, yaaay! My whinging about the dreaded cardboard box that I couldn’t re-use has finally paid off and the bags are back, hopefully for more than one box.

For those who are unfamiliar with Lust Have It, It is a monthly subscription box with 5-6 deluxe sized beauty items and sometimes full size products. Priced at $19.95 a month including postage and handling.

Lets get into it….

1

 

6

 

Be a Bombshell, the one stick. RRP $24.00. Full size.

We had a choice of 2 colours to choose from with this product, I got mine in the colour flustered. It’s a pinky red colour.
It is an all in one stick that you can use on eyelids, cheeks or lips. It does have a nice smooth creamy texture but I don’t know how it would go on cheeks as a blush as it is slightly hard to blend it out and I don’t think I would ever use a redish colour on my eyes either.

10

511

Be a Bombshell, Lip Gloss. RRP $21.00. Full size.
Colour ‘Taupeless’

So I tried this lip gloss as a swatch on my wrist and then on my lips and I am not a fan.
It is very thick and gluggy texture and extremely sticky to the point it felt like tacky glue and my lips kinda stuck together on occasions. I understand that shiny lip glosses are generally sticky and tacky on the lips but I’ve not experienced it this bad.
However it definitely stuck on there!  An hour after taking it off I could still feel it sticking my lips together 😦
I’m also not a massive fan of the colour it isn’t a colour I would personally go out and choose for a lip gloss. It was like a orangey nude on my lips.

789

Hikari Eyeshadow quad. RRP $22.50. Full size.

This eyeshadow quad is nice, I like the colours however I have never worn a green eyeshadow like that one before so I don’t know how much use that colour will get but the others are great, I usually always go towards browns natural nudes for my eyeshadow.
They are highly pigmented and seemed easy to blend out.

2

Paula’s Choice Resist wrinkle-repair Retinol Serum, 7ml Deluxe sample size.
RRP $52.00, 30ml.

I have tried a few Paula’s Choice products now and they are good, this is a serum for the night to help repair smooth wrinkles, firm skin, and softens fine lines so skin of any age looks and acts younger. I personally don’t have any lines and wrinkles to worry about yet but I’m sure it will be a great product to try in the future.

3

Racinne Gentle Refining Scrub. RRP $2400. Full size.

I have not heard of this brand before but am excited to try this scrub. It is said to slough off dead skin cells and impurities. Replenish the skins moisture barrier revealing a smoother brighter complexion.

4

Garnier Fructis Full and Luscious shampoo and Conditioner, 10ml sample bonus.
RRP $5.95, 250ml.

I also got a small sample of the new F’n’L shampoo and conditioner to try.
Garnier Fructis claim that it gives visibly fuller, thicker hair with an extra soft weightless finish.

 

Overall this months box didn’t exactly have me that excited to try all the products like previous ones have, my personal opinion… I was slightly disappointed.
But I finally got the pink mesh bag again so that it a positive.

 

If you have any questions or opinions/personal experiences with any of these products or would like a review on any specific products let me know, I would love to hear about it in the comments below!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Hi Beauties,

So I wanted to do a review on one of my favourite skincare products,
Garnier Micellar Water!

micellar
For those who are not familiar with Micellar water, it is a skincare product that removes makeup and cleanses the skin without needing to rinse your face.
Micelles are an active cleansing ingredient which act as a magnet to capture impurities, make-up and sebum on the skin without vigorous rubbing.

Micellar cleansing waters have been very popular lately, I believe the trend started with the Bioderma Micellar Water, which I personally have not tried.

To use the micellar water you just apply a small amount to a cotton pad and wipe over face, focusing on areas where makeup is more heavy like eyes and lips for longer.

24

I personally like to wet two cotton pads and hold them onto my eyes for about 20 seconds before wiping away any makeup.

106

Then I wipe the cotton pad across my eye area to remove any excess.
The Micellar water lifts all the eye makeup off of my eyes

78

Before and after – Left eye makeup has been removed, right still has makeup on.

The Garnier Micellar water is a cheap alternative to the Bioderma cleansing water at half the price, you can pick it up from Supermarkets (woolworths and Coles) and most pharmacies in Australia (Priceline and Chemist Warehouse etc.) for about $12.99. However you can sometimes get it cheaper on sale. The size it comes in is 400ml which is a very generous amount. And it is definitely worth every penny!

I love this product because you can use it on your eyes and lips and it is fragrance free and therefore is so gentle on your eyes, it doesn’t sting and burn my eyes when I am taking my heavy eye makeup off at the end of the day.
It is light and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or oily or tight and dry.
And it literally just lifts the makeup and takes it away so easily, it’s amazing. No rubbing is required which my skin really appreciates because otherwise it gets red, sore and irritated.

I only have one negative about this product and that is that I’m almost out of it and I love it too much that I use it all the time, I am gonna have to go buy some more soon. They should make a one litre bottle :/

It doesn’t have a strong scent to it and is fragrance free which is good for people that get irritated by fragrances.
It is nice light and refreshing cooling on your face which is good as it doesn’t leave any residue, meaning you can save time by not needing to rinse it off.

I definitely recommend this product! I love this Micellar water and it works great for me to help remove my makeup before cleansing my face.
It’s a great product to take with you if your going somewhere overnight or for a couple of days and want something to quickly and efficiently take off your makeup at the end of the day or for in the morning to freshen your face. If you don’t have access to running water to wash and cleanse your face properly then this is a great alternative.

Although suitable for all skintypes it was specially formulated for sensitive skin.
It is also Dermatologically and Ophthalmologically tested.

I will definitely be purchasing this product again and again.
It seriously is a great product and I think everyone should try it!

If you have used this product yourself I would love to hear about your experience and opinion on it. Leave me a comment below.

I wish you all a fantastic week!

Nivea In-Shower Rich Body Lotion Skin Conditioner Review

Hello Beauties,

Today I’m going to do a review on an amazing product that I have been using for awhile now. Yes it has been around for quite some time now.
If you haven’t heard of this product or tried this product yet then you need to stop reading this and go get it right now! Well maybe continue to read until the end of the review and then go and get it because it is seriously amazing! It is one of my holy grail products.

Who would have thought you could moisturise in the shower!? Saving time and avoiding that sticky greasy feeling of putting moisturiser on after showering.

1

“In-Shower Skin Conditioners are a more convenient way to moisturise. Now you can quickly moisturise before you get out of the shower”
It comes in 3 different types, Normal to Dry skin, Dry skin and Very Dry skin.

It really is as easy as 4 steps which are –

1. WASH – Cleanse with shower gel as usual and rinse off

2. APPLY – Stepping back from the shower stream, apply a generous amount of NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion. You’ll be amazed how quickly it rubs in

3. RINSE – The caring formula will immediately be absorbed by your skin and then you can rinse off

4. READY– Dry off and you can get dress immediately!

So this product is a moisturiser that you put on in the shower and then rinse off, that’s right, no waiting time! You don’t have to stand around in the cold naked waiting for it to soak into your skin.
This is not a soap or cleanser you can not lather this product and use in replace of shower gel or soap. You must rinse off before exiting the shower.

I love saving time. I love having beautiful soft hydrated and moisturised skin. And to be honest I am terrible when it comes to moisturising my body. But at the same time I get really dry skin especially on my arms and legs.
So when I first saw this product I couldn’t believe it, it was my ultimate product to encourage me to moisturise more!
Let me just add that I am a pro when it comes to moisturising my face, I don’t know what happens after that though.

In summer I like to fake tan, however if you want a nice tan and want to prolong the wear and life of your tan you need to moisturise, a lot.
I am good on the first day or two but then I always struggle after that, I get lazy and can’t be bothered moisturising anymore, it takes to long and feels icky.
I mean when I get out of the shower I just wanna hurry up and get dry and put clothes on I don’t wanna have to wait around half naked doing a ‘hurry up and dry’ dance to try and make the moisturiser soak into my skin faster before I can put clothes on without them sticking to me. For it to then feel like I barely have any moisturiser on at all.

I have been using the In-Shower Rich Body Lotion for Very Dry skin (purely cause I was hoping it would moisturise more) I don’t use this every time I shower, usually about 3 times a week. But my skin is so much more hydrated since using it, and it makes me feel great.
I hate that sticky, oily greasy feeling you get after putting on most moisturisers/lotions.
This product doesn’t leave a greasy oily residue on your skin. And best of all after you get out of the shower and dried your skin instantly feels soft smooth and moisturised!! What girl doesn’t want that!?!  Instant results!

If your familiar with Nivea products then you will know and probably adore that original Nivea scent that comes with most Nivea products. I love the smell.

The only negatives about this product is the slight residue it leaves on the bottom of your shower (or bath in my case) makes it a little bit slippery the next time you use the shower. However I rinse the bath down with water after I’ve finished showering and always make sure I’m careful when getting into the shower the next time.

Second negative I have is the packaging, it is bulky tough plastic. I am not a massive fan.
I would love it if this product came with a pump lid because the lid is hard to open and when you get towards the end of the bottle the tube is hard to squeeze to get the product out. I get frustrated by this, I would much prefer if the bottle was a softer plastic to make it easier to squeeze product out.  However the actual product outways the negatives and I will definitely keep repurchasing this product.

I love using it especially when I have shaved my legs because it makes your legs look amazing after, I use to always be self conscious about my legs as they would be really dry and have that ashy, scaly look 😦  no moisturiser ever seemed to soak in and work as good as this one does.

The price is extremely affordable aswell and you can generally find them on sale quite a bit.
You can find them at supermarkets or pharmacies such as chemist warehouse and priceline. 400ml’s for about $6.00!

*Do not put this on your feet as it will be very slippery and may cause a lot of pain* :/

I would love to hear if you have used one of these In-Shower body conditioners so leave a comment below and let me know your experience/opinions.

‘Lust Have It’ Unboxing/Review June 2015

Hello Beauties!

So we are finally back to normal shipping with Lust Have It, yay!
I got my June Lust Have It box the other day and it looks pretty good.

For those who are unfamiliar with Lust Have It, It is a monthly subscription box with 5-6 deluxe sized beauty items and sometimes full size products. Priced at $19.95 a month including postage and handling.

2

This is what came in June’s Lust Have It box. Everything was a full size product!

 

1

So unfortunately this is the packaging it now comes in… which I am slightly disappointed with as I loved the pink mesh zip bags and now I get a paper gift box and scrunched paper 😦

3

The Cosmetic Kitchen Wake up body scrub, 60g. RRP $29.95. Full size.

I just have to start off by saying I have not yet tried a body scrub! ;o
Body scrubs recently became very popular with the Frank Body coffee scrub that was on trend a couple months ago. I am excited to give this body scrub a go as I would love to have nice exfoliated soft skin all over my body. Would be a lovely way to relax after a busy day. I also like that it is actual natural products like raw sugar that you are rubbing onto your skin, that’s gotta be good right!?
This scrub contains some natural ingredients like raw sugar, organic coffee, salt, pink Australian organic clay and bergamont.

4

The Cosmetic Kitchen Peppermint Foot Mask, 50g. RRP $24.95. Full size.

A foot mask sounds unusual? I wouldn’t generally think to get a mask for anything other then face or hair but I guess if it’s going to make my feet soft and smooth and relaxed and at ease then I’ll do it. Especially after standing on my feet all day at work, coming home to a foot mask might be just what I have needed in my life.
I have previously received a few products from The Cosmetic Kitchen and I love that their products are natural handmade in Australia.
This peppermint foot mask contains organic clay, peppermint essential oil and lemon scented tea tree oil. And to use it you add a teaspoon to coconut oil and water and make a paste.

5

NAK Thermal Shield, 150g. RRP $25.95. Full size.

This is as it says a heat protectant shield, to help keep your hair from being damaged by heat styling tools like hair straighteners.
I have been looking for a good heat protectant for a while now to try out so I am glad I got this. I don’t often straighten my already straight hair but I sometimes like to curl it but not as often as I should. And I am always concerned that I may burn my hair and end up with bad split ends and wire like hair if I do always use heat tools and never use a heat protectant, so this will go to good use 🙂

6 7

Chapstick Hydration lock. RRP $4.99. Full size.

So if you read my blog you will know I have a slight problem with collecting an unreasonable amount of lip glosses and chapsticks…
And Chapstick is one of my favourite brands! So I’m super excited to try out this because it is a dual action and I always get dry lips so any extra moisture and hydration is great.
It is nice and smooth on the lips but it has a slightly funny unusual taste which I am not a massive fan of, but I’m sure I’ll get use to it as it’s not that strong.

8  9101112  13

Teeez Trendy Cosmetics Eves ready to wear lipstick, Rebellious Red. RRP $32.00. Full size.

This month Lust Have It sent out an email with the option to choose what colour lipstick you wanted from Teeez Trendy Cosmetics range of ‘eve’s ready to wear lipsticks’, there was 3 choices of nude, caramel and red.
As you can see in the picture I chose red, which was an unusual decision for me as I usually stick with nudes and natural colours to not draw attention towards myself.
But I thought I would go for something I don’t usually choose, so red it was.
And I am happy with my choice of red because when I tried it on it looked amazing, actually delicious!
It’s so vibrant and bright and the texture is beautiful it is so creamy and smooth and it glided onto my lips with ease. It is so hydrating which is so surprising for a lipstick.
However on their website they do state that you will “Fall in love with the lipstick’s rich formula, which nourishes, hydrates and repairs cracked or dry lips thanks to the specially added wild mango” and exactly that happened!! I love the texture and that it helps to repair cracked/dry lips.
Not to mention the amazing packaging!! I have taken a photo of each side of the lipstick cover to show you guys, is that not the most creative packaging you have ever seen!?
I love it! So bright.

14
(unfortunately the lighting wasn’t the best to capture a true to colour image)

 

Overall I really liked this months box, it had all full sized products in it and I am happy I will be able to get use out of the products.
However I still want my pink mesh bag it comes in and not a cardboard gift box. Hopefully they are working on this and planning on coming out with an amazing new baggy I can add to my collection of makeup bags.

 

If you have any questions or opinions/personal experiences with any of these products or would like a review on any specific products let me know, I would love to hear about it in the comments below!
