I’ve wanted to try out a make-up subscription for awhile now, and decided on Birchbox as I see it a lot on other blogs. This is my first month so I’m not 100% sure what my thoughts are on the subscription as a whole, but I’m happy with my May Birchbox. And the print on the physical box is super cute, too!
I was able to pick one item in my box, or rather the colour of the item, which I thought was cool. I would rather you got to pick the item itself, but it’s still nice having an option of some kind. Especially since mine was lipstick, and it would be fairly pointless to pay for a subscription and get a make-up item in a colour that you don’t like or that doesn’t suit you.
Moving on, let’s see what else I got in the box!
I’ve been wanting to update all my beauty products and make a slow transition into using more cruelty-free brands, and I had heard good things about The Body Shop’s Tea Tree primer, so I popped in to pick one up for myself and ended up walking away with a lot more… I thought I’d show you guys what’s in my The Body Shop haul and my thoughts on what I’ve used so far!
A couple of weeks ago, amidst some exam stress, I did a bit of online shopping and managed to bag myself an amazing deal with Tarte Cosmetics! They were offering a make-up bag filled with 6 full sized products for only £56 (however, usually the entire purchase would be worth £180+). Apparently they do this once or twice every year. I’ve always wanted to try out their make-up so I couldn’t really resist! I thought it would be perfect to share my Tarte Cosmetics haul with you, today.
It did take a couple of weeks to get to me, which was made clear on the website when I purchased it since there was such a high demand for this deal, but I received it a few days ago and I was so excited I had to start writing about them ASAP.
I’ve only tried out these products a couple of times, but I will be coming back to review them at a later date when I’ve played around with them first. For now, I’ll just be doing a first impressions / look at what I bought.
Hi guys! A while ago I was watching a YouTube video and a woman (I’m sorry, I can’t remember your channel name / find it again!) with red hair similar to mine tried out the Superdrug Pick & Mix non-permanent hair colour, and said that she had some success with it. I wanted to give dyeing my naturally red hair a shot!
I’ve always wanted to dye my hair bright colours, especially a peachy pink as of late. Having red hair stops me before I can even get started. Not only would I have to bleach the shit out of my hair, but then if I put dye on top of that it wouldn’t stick to my hair as well as other hair types. I’ve bleached parts of my hair and put permanent dye on top before, and the dye fades so fast. It basically washes out (not instantly of course, but quicker than it usually should).
However, after hearing this woman’s review, I wanted to try it out for myself and see if I could get a slight pink colour to my hair!
I popped into Lush last month and got myself a couple of products I had never tried before, at the recommendation of one of the girls working there. It was a quiet day in the shop so she was very helpful and tried the products out on my hand! (I love this! It’s like a mini spa treatment that only lasts a few minutes, but I feel so relaxed afterwards.) She also talked me through all the benefits and how she personally uses them! So, I thought it would be fun to do a Lush products review on what I picked up for you.
