GlossyBox’s September & October!

I’ve lost track a little of posts here and there, so we’re a little behind here on the website compared to the YouTube channel.

Here is September’s GlossyBox unboxing, and the Catch Up:

The stand out product for me for this box really was the facial oil, despite not liking the scent hugely (a bit too overpowering, as my personal preference is for relatively low scent facial products) – it still makes me skin feel wonderfully moisturised and pampered, and has lasted well into the winter months since it is actually a full size product in ml, we just received one in slightly less fancy packaging than the retail version!

And then onto October’s GlossyBox unboxing and Catch Up:

In October it was very interesting to finally try a Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette; while I have some of their other products, I have never tried eyeshadow and they seem like a good find! Similarly priced to MUA, they have better bright colours in my opinion, whereas MUA is more of a go to brand for neutrals and shimmers. I also loved the Lord & Berry eyebrow pencil, though it was a shame I didn’t get one with a spoolie on the end!

That’s it for this set, November’s unboxing and Catch Up will be up soon, the Catch Up is being edited now!

GlossyBox Unboxing and Catchup August 2017 – Girls Just Wanna Have Sun!

Here’s the latest YouTube and GlossyBox round up, the August unboxing…

And then the catch up a few weeks later…

This box was sadly a rare disappointment! I usually find one or two items in the box are good enough, and cost enough to make each individual box worth the price of admission. This time I only really liked the SportFX face mist and the travel Batiste dry shampoo – whose combined price was only £7.49. I hope I have better luck with the September box, which has already been dispatched, and should be here soon.

Until Next Time!

Not dead, just busy!

So little life update, we’ve been very busy and stressed with lots of different things recently. My other half was made redundant which sucks, and then started a new job! We had a lot of different things to do to in quite succession: my brothers wedding, a get together of some friends moving away from the UK, celebratory dinners for finishing exams for other people in the fam fam. So the website has gotten a little left by the wayside, despite the fact that videos have in fact still been being produced, both on my StudiousOctopus beauty YouTube, and the And So Begins gaming YouTube that I’m part of!

So here’s a few of my recent Beauty Videos:

And as a nice catch up on And So Begins, we’ve been playing…

Firewatch…

Near Death…

And other good stuff!

So, now that all that hectic-ness is over and done with, hopfully I’ll be back to more regular website maintenance. Until Next Time!

Finally trying my BEAUTYPRO Black Diamond Peel off mask. It’s pretty thick so I think I’ll get some good peelage! Feels nice and cooling on my skin too. @glossyboxuk @beautyproglobal #glossymask via Instagram http://ift.tt/2tB8eCO

Just used a new Garnier sheet mask – I went for the Moisture Bomb variant for hydration, radiance and signs of aging :p.
It’s a single cotton sheet with a cotton/plastic film inside a sachet. Lots and lots of moisturising goo inside – a little perfumed but not too strong, eye and mouth holes in mask seemed a liiittle small but the masked stayed on really securely without moving around – definitely a must for a good mask experience. Felt nice and moisturising and refreshing, will have to see how skin looks over the week!

My latest GlossyBox unboxing is now live on YouTube – the March UK edition (find the YouTube in my profile) – it contains 5 items, 3 full size: a oolution Eye Love eye cream, a Sleek Eye & Cheek palette (mine is the ‘A Midsummer’s Dream’ version), and a Schwarzkopf got2b Playful Styling Primer for hair. And the 2 no-full size items are a thisworks in transit camera close-up primer, and a Figs & Rouge Hydra-Activ Smart Nutrient Vital Moisture Day Cream. This box had an amazing £70.38 value – the highest in a long while, I love the focus on skincare in this box, and the Sleek palette alone makes it worth the cost!
