Daydreamer GlossyBox (May 2018)

fullsizeoutput_13a1

I received my Glossy box and was instantly in love with it. The box is beautiful! All the contents in this months box are cruelty free which is a huge bonus. I haven’t really been too excited the last couple of boxes but I am glad I am excited to try every product in this months box.

They have used soft pastel hues to go with the tranquil feel of the products and they really are going to be a treat on my next pamper session and I can’t wait to dive in and test the products. But here my first thoughts…

Jelly Foot Soak – This is a luxury foot soak, and I love me a foot soak.. filling a bowl and relaxing for a bit. I love it, I know I will probably give myself a pedicure when I use this too to make it even more of a treat. It claims to moisturise and sooth tired feet. It has Lemongrass and Lavender. It is a powder that mixes with water and turns to a gel, which is interesting, then when you’re done you add the second sachet and it turns the gel back to water. Magical!

True Soft Shampoo and Conditioner – I have seen this duo before I think in my local trade shop and been tempted but I didn’t want to pay out and not like it so I am happy they have included the minis in this box. The shampoo and conditioner are vegan friendly, also sulphate and paraben free. The shampoo aims to soften, moisturise and strengthen the hair to make the hair shiny and frizz free. The conditioner is a multi tasking one and can be used as a deep conditioner for 3 minutes, so will go perfectly for that pamper evening I have planned.

Kueshi Make Up Remover – I don’t get too excited with make up remover if I am being 100% honest, this is a oil and water one and says it will gently clean away all my troubles so I can drift off to sleep cleansed and happy… a magical claim haha. This is for sensitive areas and has on the bottle it removes waterproof and long lasting makeup. I will definitely give an update on this once I have tried it.

Trifle Cosmetics Praline Palette – I have a few eyeshadow palettes and I tend to stick to my usual brown and golden eyeshadows, this palette is really sweet and is quite small so perfect for travelling. The general tone of the palette is very up my alleyway… with the brown/gold but also a nice purple in there that I could use as an eyeliner perhaps, same with the grey shade. The shadows are all shimmery but very pigmented. I am keen to try and use the rusty red/brown shade in Autumn.

We Are Tea Earl Grey – I love tea, I love Earl Grey and I will saving this beauty for my pamper evening, whilst my feet soak and have my favourite Netflix show on. Personally I think Glossy box should add a selection of teas every month haha.

Overall, super happy with this months box! XO

July Glossybox 2017


Always the exciting part of the month when my GB or LF beauty box comes through the door. I’ve made no secret of the disappointment I sometimes feel though. However, not this month!! Really happy with this months box!


Monu Spa First Defence Soothing After Sun – this claims to be for all skin types and although I’m not one to be sitting in the sun at the moment this smells so nice and glides on the skin so nicely I will get use out of this whether I’ve been in the sun or not.


Papanga Hair Bands are bigger than the usual plastic spring hair bands which is amazing for someone with thick hair (like me!) I received a clear and a black band. There is also 20% with this months glossy box so will stock up on these.


Cutebalms Macaroon Tint Balm in Crushed Berry, this smells so sweet but not over powering and gives a lovely Tint to the lips, I was feeling lazy and popped this on my cheeks too and worked really well. So perfect for the hand bag.


Bellapierre Cosmetics Banana Setting Powder, I have wanted to try and proper banana powder for ages so this will be a perfect addition to my make up collection. I will give this a whirl next time I contour…


I’ve left the most exciting for last, I’ve wanted a fan brush for a long time and never taken the plunge and bought one (not sure why!) anyway in this months box I received the Spectrum Fan Brush. I used this for highlighter straight away and it’s changed everything… well.. changed how I put on highlight anyway.

So overall really chuffed with this months box! Do you get Glossybox? Were you happy? XO 

May Glossy Box

I always feel every month its a battle of the boxes between GB and LF boxes. I didn’t post about the April Glossy box last month, there were some good products but I just didn’t want to post about it but this month I wanted to share my thoughts.


If you saw my Look Fantastic May review, then you’d know I got this product, Scrub Love, but a different scent.. this is Cucumber and Bamboo, is activated charcoal, and claims to be cleansing, purifying and detoxifying. I love love love the coconut and cranberry one so I have high hopes for this too.


-417 foot nourishing cream, I love a foot cream and this smells super nice and not the traditional foot cream smell. Looking forward to using this next time I do a pedicure on myself (due one just before the wedding haha)


PawPaw Original Balm, I have seen this on various blog posts, videos and tweets so really happy this is in this month’s box. I used it on my lips straight away and made them so soft! It says it can be used for the lips, skin, hair and nails etc. It’s also fragrance free. This is an awesome sized sample too.


Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy diamond top coat…. I always need a top coat so will get use out of this. Hopefully it’ll be good to help with chipping.


And last but not least Ruby Blush, there’s no shade name on this but says Coral on the leaflet inside the box, it’s a matte peach which makes a nice change from the shimmery peaches I own. It’s quite chalky but pigmented.

So overall, it’s not a bad box! XO
