Look Fantastic Beauty Box – April

If you’re a regular you would of probably noticed I didn’t post about the March Look Fantastic box. I didn’t really pay much attention to it and can’t really remember what was in it haha. 

So anyway as I am back in the mood for all things beauty I thought I would share what I got in this month’s beauty box…

I’ll get this one out the way first as I rolled my eyes when I saw it… another sheet mask… awesome… moving on…

This Madara smart antioxidants moisturiser claims to be very clever indeed and says it will reduce my fine lines, we will see. I have high hopes for this little tube. I have little lines around my eyes, I clearly squint too much haha. 

Laura Mellar baked foundation, I first thought was this was a highlighter. I never read the booklet first and I clearly didn’t read the product name. I tested it on my hand and thought… what a rubbish highlighter. Well it’s not it’s a powder foundation. I will certainly be giving this a go and it may be my new handbag emergency foundation for those touch ups. 

Merci hand sanitiser. This smells so nice and I got one of these not so long another in another beauty box, that has almost run out so perfect timing. Smells really nice too but a little strong. 

This Works – Perfect Legs, I love products like these for when I have my legs out in summer just to give them a little boost and so my white legs don’t shock anyone. This will definitely be used when the weather heats up. 

Omorovicza foaming wash, now… anything with foaming sends alarm bells. I smelt it (amazing) and then plopped some onto my hand and it’s creamy!! It didn’t foam at all on my face and it made my face feel really soft and smooth. I googled it though… it has a pretty price tag for a cleanser. 

Caviar CC cream for the hair, I automatically assumed this was for my face. I read the tube and it seems to be a moisturiser for you hair. I have been using similar products so excited to give this a try. Love testing out hair products at the moment. 

So overall, not bad but just the face mask was the disappointment. When will sheet masks no longer be in fashion? Haha. 


Hello April

I feel like I have had to do more catch ups on my blog than normal posts haha, but I have been a bit distant lately as my heart just hasn’t been into writing. I would much rather post when I have something to say than something that is half hearted.

So here is where I have been….. as mentioned before in a previous post I was signed off sick for awhile from work, I finally went back 20th March (I think it was anyway) I had my back injection 4 days before and although I wasn’t pain free before returning to work it was a lot more bearable than it was so that was good, and if I am honest it is a lot better now but not 100%.

Now for the TMI, I had my smear test booked in for the week I went back to work and for some reason I was filled with so much anxiety. I have had them before…and have a child so you’d think I would be used to those types of exams but if I am being honest, they are never comfortable!! For the last two weeks I have been so on edge, worrying about the result, I got the result back yesterday and they were all ok, just waiting for the letter so I have that in writing and I can completely calm down.

Anyway moving on from the over share haha… James and I finally came clean about our wedding and we are getting married 26th May (this year) so we had about 12 weeks from deciding to just do it… to the big day. We make a great team though and everything is sorted and in hand. I really can’t wait to share the pictures with you all. There will be 12 guests (including my new niece and nephew… they’re amazing and perfect twins!)

Jacob our son, turns 4 this month and we find out whether he has got the school he wanted, this is so nerve wracking even though we are in catchment for the school and everyone out of catchment has a good chance of getting in too. We are going away for Jake’s birthday though and he wants to go back to Cadbury World, we went there in November and he loved it so much, win win for me and James (and my mum and dad as they’re coming too) as we all love chocolate and it is such a fun day. Love seeing my boy smile!!

After we get back we will be going away for the weekend for dads birthday then we get married two weeks later so it will be busy but I am determined to make time to blog as I really have missed it and really enjoy writing…. even if no one reads it! If you are reading this far I am impressed haha.

I will leave it there and start on some other posts! I will be posting about this months Look Fantastic box soon!

Lots of love xx
