Look Incredible Beauty Box – February 2017!

Hi my lovelies,

I’m back after a somewhat extended hiatus (basically, I went on holiday, came home, and got sick) with my monthly review of the Look Incredible beauty box!

20170218_124027

As of last month, I’ve cancelled all of my beauty subscriptions apart from this one – I’m on the lookout for a new one if you guys have any suggestions? Birchbox wasn’t really doing it for me and of all the subscriptions this is the one that I think gives me the best value for money, with fab brands every month! My box is a little battered on the outside this month (likely courtesy of my delivery person), but it’s what’s on the inside that count, right?

First up, If you  don’t know about Look Incredible, it’s a monthly beauty subscription service that for £18.99 (now plus £2.50 postage), promises to deliver you five full sized beauty products every month. They’ve had the likes of Tarte, Bare Minerals, Smashbox, Stila and Nars in previous boxes, and are pretty makeup heavy instead of more skincare items, so If you want to try some new makeup without paying the full price, this one is for you!

So what’s in February’s box?

Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar Unboxing – Days 19,20,21! (Blogmas, day 21)

Hi my lovelies!

We’re up to the penultimate advent unboxing post! I hope you’re not getting bored of these, because as we get near (sooooo near) to Christmas day, I manage to get more and more excited by these unboxings! We’ve seen Lancome, YSL, Viktor & Rolf, Urban Decay, Kiehls – all these fab brands so far and some products that I’m already loving!

Let’s see what the last three days brought! Strangely, all three of this last three day’s beauty treats were fragrances – I’ll admit I wish there were a little more variety with the products, but they’re from three different brands so I’ll forgive it.

Previous Days! –  Days 1,2,3 /   4,5,6  / 7,8,9 /10,11,12 / 13,14,15/16,17,18

Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar Unboxing – Days 16,17,18! (Blogmas, Day 18)

Hi my lovelies,

We’re on the home stretch now  – just the one week until Blogmas is over (but that means Christmas, so yay! Today’s post is another unboxing and mini review of my Selfridges advent calendar. We’re all accustomed to these posts now, so let’s get right in there and see what was in the last three windows!

So I have to say that these three products are some of the most impressive I’ve come across so far! The sheer value of these alone is almost £50 which is incredible! Let’s get into it, shall we?

Look Incredible Beauty Box – December 2016! (Blogmas, Day 17)

Hi my lovelies,

For today’s post, it’s back to one of my regular monthly posts – my Look Incredible unboxing for December! Last month’s box was really good, so December really had to step up its game to beat November! I’m still using the Fresh Lip treatment nightly!

I’m actually quite impressed with this month’s box apart from one product that’s a strange shade for me, but I’ll forgive Look Incredible that as we don’t fill in a survey to match products for us. I’m super impressed with the lip products most of all! I’ve also noticed Look Incredible are tending to repeat brands in these boxes quite often – a coincidence?

So what was in store for December?

Birchbox December 2016 Unboxing – My Last Box & Why I’m Cancelling! (Blogmas, day 14)

Hi My lovelies,

Today’s post is all about my final Birchbox of the year, and my last box for the time being! I’m cancelling after December’s box,  think new year, new start kind of thing. After getting Birchbox for a full year, I’ve come to the realisation that I’m never 100% impressed with the box, or there’s some sort of mistake or error, or there are products in there which are completely unsuitable for me. So I’m starting off January without my Birchbox subscription! Regardless, December’s box is actually pretty good and almost made me reconsider my decision to quit for now (apart from a problem I’ll address below), so let’s see what was inside!

This month is Christmas themed, and Birchbox always bring out the best at this time of year which is why I’ve stuck it out for this box. The box is a strange design this month, pretty plain but opens up like a storage box, which could be handy to keep pens or makeup brushes in (although I like the drawer style boxes better!)

Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar Unboxing – Days 10, 11 & 12! (Blogmas, day 12)

Hi my lovelies,

Another advent unboxing, has it been three days already?? First of all I want to apologise for the lack of Blogmas posting yesterday – I had planned on it being my Look Incredible box unboxing but as I’m writing this post it hasn’t arrived yet so that one will be a little later in the month, and I’m that busy I didn’t have anything else prepared to post in its place! So let’s just forgive my infraction (I’m sure Santa will allow it) and carry on with today’s post as planned – on to the Advent Unboxing!

Birchbox December 2016 – Sneak Peek! (Blogmas, day 2!)

Hi my lovelies,

Welcome back to my second day of Blogmas! I’m super excited to be sharing all of these posts with you, and for day 2 I’m sharing my monthly Birchbox preview post! Not the most Christmassy post, I know – but I do a preview post every month, so I’m not about to not write one for December!

Check out all my Blogmas Posts so far Here!

I’ve been getting Birchbox since last December, and at least for now this will be my last box (I’ll go into more detail in my unboxing post) – so I’m super happy to say it looks like a really great one this month!

IMG_00176009 2

December’s theme is Merry & Bright and is all about ending the year in style and feeling super festive!! I love the Christmas theme and as an extra treat, everyone is getting at least two makeup products in their box this month – seriously exciting! The box this month is a completely different format than usual and looks kiiiinda like a cigarette box to me – anyone else? Regardless, it’s pretty, and can be used to store makeup brushes, pens, pencil style makeup products, chopsticks or anything you like after it’s done with which I think is pretty cool.

IMG_00176021

For those of you who don’t know about Birchbox, it’s a beauty subscription service that sends around 5 beauty products (including makeup, skincare and haircare) to your door each month. Sometimes there is also a beauty bonus included, such as January’s #nofilter compact mirror! It costs £10 plus £2.95 postage, and in my opinion is well worth it so far as I’ve found products that I really love (Spectrum makeup brushes, anybody?)!

Birchbox also now ships to Ireland, so all you Irish lovelies can now get your hands on this little box of wonders too!
