#BeautyCrush: June GlamBox Review

Gosh sorry I’m a little late on this one! This month seems to have just flown by what with trying to wrap up a million things at work before the start of Ramadan/Summer, yeah it’s just been a bit mad.

So, back to my June GlamBox. I’ve gotta admit I was a little disappointed when opening this one. I mean, remember they had set the standards quite high with their previous ones and so the June box looked a bit… nah.

Look, like I’ve said before, this is the beauty of the whole concept of beauty boxes! Some are great, some aren’t as great! But I still LOVE receiving & discovering my monthly pink box of treats!

So what was in this month’s box?

1. Bioderma Sensibio H2O – a classic. One that I use every single day to remove my make-up with. The small/travel friendly bottle will be perfect for when I’m off to France! Love it.

2. Carita Beauty Diamond – Regenerating Midnight Concentrate – I’m afraid I haven’t given this one a try just yet as I’ve been on a missing to clear up my skin and had to take it all back to basics with skincare. Will keep it aside though and give it a try in a few weeks’ time. The sample is a little small so not quite sure it’ll be enough to forge a proper option….

3. Carita Perfect Serum – Again, I’ve not tried this one yet

4. Lolita Lempika Eau de Parfum – love the packaging this little sample bottle came in. Smells quite nice too actually and I will defo be using this one over the next few weeks.

5. Shea Mirrage – Pure Shea Butter – Not sure about this one. I know Shea butter is meant to be super good to moisturise your skin and your hair etc… but I’m just not a fan… I’ll use it to nourish my legs after sunbathing this Summer but don’t think I’ll re-purchase. Would have preferred coconut oil instead! (hint hint)

Voila. Hope my review was somewhat useful. If you’re still thinking of subscribing, I’d say GO FOR IT! It’s a lot of fun you’ll see. And you’ll get to discover great new brands & products, you’ll also get to re-visit some more classic ones and then of course, you will get products you won’t like but that’s fine cos you don’t know until you’ve tried right?!

Just check out their website for details here.

As I was finalising this article, the July GlamBox just dropped and it looks amazing! Check out my Instagram for a preview ;)!

#SalesCrush: Best of beauty sales

Alright ladies, get your credit cards ready, the SALES are ON! Yay! And to make the job easier, I’ve browsed through my favourite beauty websites and shared my top 3 must-buy products for each!

Enjoy!

Cultbeauty.co.uk  The clue is in the name with this one! One of my favourite sites which stocks a vast array of ‘cult’ products! My first one has got to be the Coconut & Hibiscus Oil by Ushvani (was £38 and is now £19!). Deliciously hydrating and packed with Vitamin C this little gem can be used all-over the body and hair! PLUS it is said to help prevent stretch marks!

Next is one of the best moisturising creams ever made! The Bliss Tripple Oxygen and Vitamin C Energizing Cream (from £46 to £18.40 = a huge bargain!). I don’t need to tell what an amazing product for oily/dehydrated skin this is and now at a great price!

Last but not least, another ‘cult’ products which I’ve been meaning to try for ages, the Dr Brandt Pores no More Pore Thing (was £39 now £23.40)-  a revolutionary pore-tightening solution that helps reduce the appearance of enlarged pores whilst tackling excess sebum. Miracle in a bottle?!

SpaceNK.com Another amazing website where you can find almost all of the luxury make-up & beauty brands! The first item in my shopping card has got to be the Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight Kit discounted from£96 to now £48! Next is the classic Laura Mercier Body & Bath Luxe Quarter – Creme Brulee (was GBP60 and now GBP30!) and finally the Diptyque Eau de Toilettes are now half price which is amazing! My favourite: The Diptyque Philosykos which now sells at £34!

Selfridges &Co I used to spend hours and hours walking around the store… I really miss being in London when it’s the sales but hey, thanks to the Internet AND of course, Aramex Shop & Ship, I can shop their collections, in the comfort of my living room! What’s in my shopping cart then? Well first of, the Clinique Black Honey Beauty Set which was £25 and is now £16.50! Next up, the Estee Lauder Even Skin Tone Essential Gift Set, now at £32 (just cos I’ve always wanted to try these out) and finally, the gorgeous smelling La Petite Robe Noire de Guerlain gift set at only £47 instead of £83!

Well I for one cannot wait for all of these goodies to land on my door step! Have you purchased anything on these sites? Do you have a go-to website for all your beauty bits & pieces? Let me know!

Happy ‘sales’ shopping!
