Birchbox May Products for in the Shower!

Ok so I told you here I was going to pamper myself using my delightful treats from Mays Birchbox …. Well I did and then I used them some more and then squeezed the last possible drops and product out of each little tube.

AROMATHERAPY ASSOCIATES
Revive Morning Bath & Shower Gel

Oh my goodness I don’t think I have ever fallen in love with a product as quickly as I did this. For a tiny bottle it packed so much fragrance the moment I removed the lid, the oil fragranced my body and really did lift and revive! With blends of rosemary, juniper and grapefruit it’s specially blended to invigorate your mind and body, getting your day off to the right start.

It moved over my skin leaving it feeling nourished and smooth and the results remained long after the shower and into the day. There were clear visible benefits too, my skin had a subtle luminosity and glow without any greasy feeling, it looked refreshed and luminous.
Oh my god just talking to you about this product makes me fall in love all over again and more than upset I have run out!

BEAUTY PROTECTOR BIRCHBOX EXCLUSIVE! 
Protect & Condition Shampoo & Conditioner

image

Ok, so the day before I tried this luscious product I had bleach foils in my hair and even though my hairdresser at Jaxx is one of the best around and truly knows my hair and so mixes colours accordingly it does still take it’s toll and I’m no cheap skate when it comes to hair products to look after my locks!
Having used this shampoo and conditioner for 10 days now, washing every 2 days my hair has stayed clean, silky and feeling strong. My hair brush doesn’t feel like it’s tearing through my fine tresses plus it’s easy to style and add volume. With a UV protection, on the days unlike today when there has been sunshine I know my hair has been looked after and colour protected.
Plus it smells yummy too!

LIZ EARLE
Cleanse & Polish

So I don’t cleanse in the shower,  I wait until I have panda eyes after I have jumped out, then cleanse my face.  This cleanser is amazing for that final refreshed and ready to go feeling. This is a product I have mentioned before that to me is the benchmark of what all cleansers are trying to achieve, it is multi award winning (over 100!) and deservedly so.

Even though I have a travel size, in a tube it’s beautiful botanical blend in a creamy formula would be dispensed from the pump of the bottle to just the perfect amount. With water it lathers onto skin starting the first phase of the cleansing routine removing all traces of make up, daily build up and even my panda eyes! Then the second phase using the muslin cloth to gently cleanse that bit deeper removing any remains impurities or flakes and leaving that really squeaky clean new skin feel, it’s beautiful everytime!

Ok I’m off to indulge again, writing all this has made me need to!!

Toes Out Tuesday Graffiti Neon Leopard Print Minx

Ok so when I say today is dull and gloomy I’m really not exaggerating it’s been raining since last night and after a few weekends of fleeting sunshine looking out to grey skies and puddles is not appealing!

But that doesn’t mean my toes have to be dull ready for when the weather changes and I get to don my flip flops check my Minx mixture out a combination of Leopard print & Graffiti designs….

These will be available in the Sweet Cheeks Beauty Room when I return. What do you think? Do you have a favourite minx design?

Birchbox May I Don’t Normally Like Going Nude

Hahaha…. Thought that might catch your attention of course I mean I prefer to wear brights or reds on my nails, but was pleasantly surprised by how pretty and subtle this gorgeous polish from Soigne was on my almond nails.

image

Don’t get me wrong it wouldn’t be my first choice from this gorgeous collection but it’s perfect for wedding nails, a beautiful french or just if going nude is your thing.

To start with the packaging is luxury & special, it is something so many nail brands skimp on nowadays but to unpack a polish was lovely for me and I think this also gives them a huge added benefit as a gift. (My friends love polishes but omg they are so bloody awkward to wrap!) 

image

The polish goes on lovely, the bottle is easy to hold and the brush spreads evenly across the nail I think the only thing you can’t do is rush I’m used to be able to put my polish on in a hurry as I have to change it so regularly with this I had to wait a bit longer between the two coats applied (I did attempt it earlier and ended up dragging first layer)

image

The results are a nice even colour with an almost pearlescent shine, the colour I received was Creme au Beurre. Some other plus points that should be noted with this polish are that it’s non toxic, free from formaldehyde, toluene amd camphor.

This item is a pretty awesome item to receive in my Birchbox I pay £10 a month for my subscription (+p&p) and I received this which retails at £11 plus another amazing 5 items, a special offer and mini mag take a peek here.

You can subscribe here too if you wanted, check out more product reviews for Mays box and let me know what you think, have you tried Soigne polishes already? What did you love or loathe and whats your favourite shade?
