April Glossy Box

Hello Lovelies! 
Friday was the day where all the Glossy Gals recieved our Glossy Boxes! 
If your unaware of what Glossy Box is, Its a monthly subscription, you only spend £10 a month on it, and every month you get sent a box filled with 5 gorgeous beauty goodies for you to test and review on their website! 
its almost like your birthday once a month! -who wouldn't want that?!

So, lets get started! 
I recieved this and I have to say the box melted my heart, its literally the most beautiful chic, girly, vintage  pattern which was created and designed by Pearl Lowe. 
so this shall proudly sit on my dressing table and get filled with many beauty bits & bobs :) 

Once I have got over how amazing the box was, I dived inside and and had a rummage through the tissue paper and the tiny cut up black bits of card to discover my beauty treats they had sent me! 
& here's what I found!

Model Co - Cheek + Lips
This is a lovely rosy pink cheek and lip stain, its subtle which I really like. As its a gel it blends really well, i'm really glad its not a liquid because I tend to find it leaves obvious stain patches on your skin.

Essie Nail Varnish - Nice is Nice
I love this nail varnish I was thrilled to see this brand in my glossy box, and the colour is a beautiful lilac purple, which is perfect for Spring/Summer and Im loving pastel colours at the moment, so this couldn't be more perfect! 

Nip+Fab - Coconut Latte Body Butter
I've never used Nip+Fab products before, so this was my first experience with the brand, I loved using this and it makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. It also smells amazing and reminds me of summer :) 

Yves Rocher -So Elixir Purple
This perfume is gorgeous! it smells very feminine with foral-woody undertones.
 its perfect for Spring and Summer as its very fresh, which is making me very tempted to get the bigger bottle of this!

Sun Sense - SPF 50+
This is an untinted moisturizing creme, its quite extreme being 50+ so I'm saving this for the summer when I go to Corfu which i'm super excited about! :)  

Hope you like the post!
Do you recieve Glossy Box? if so, what did you recieve this month?

Monday Update + Skin Care Routine

Sunglasses- RayBan
Blouse- New Look
Blazer- H&M (old)
Acid Wash Shorts- Topshop

Hello bloggee's! 
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter holidays! 
It was so lovely to have a break off and get away from college work going shopping, meeting up with friends, catching up with lots of sleep and going out for meals with the boyfriend -as we just celebrated our 1 and a half years together! We also booked and payed for our holiday to Corfu this summer, so im super excited about that! :) 
but I'm back to blogging and getting back to reality! 
As the UK weather has been completely up and down recently and changing constantly from rain to sun my skin has of course been suffering, so I thought I'd step in and do my first Skin Care Routine for you guys just to show you whats been helping me along! :) 

Garnier PureActive Blackhead Clearing Scrub - Boots
Origins Checks and Balances Foamy Face Wash - Debenhams

 I have been using these two products religiously! I use the scrub every other night and it makes my skin appear very clear and smooth, It does sting slightly but its nothing too harsh it just makes your skin feel very clean and refreshed. 
I use the foamy face wash every night and I love this product! It makes my skin look very clear, even and feel very refreshed. After a few days of using this product I have noticed a big difference in my skin and my blemishes have defiantly stayed away :) 

Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre - GuruMakeupEmporium.com
Bare Minerals Prime Time - Debenhams

I useboth of these products under my foundation. They are both brilliant and create a really good smooth foundation base when used together. This is my second tube of Embryolisse and, as you can see, its nearly all gone! I discovered this product at IMATS in London 2012 and fell in-love with the product straight away! it makes your skin feel incredible!
Prime time is a great primer and holds my makeup through college no problem at all! This primer makes your skin feel amazing, the only fault I have with this product is the price, for such a small bottle so I do limit myself with it and only use this product on my T-zone.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum 51 Light Vanilla - Boots
KRYOLAN Concealer Circle Nr.1 -Kryolan.com
Soap&Glory One Heck Of A Blot - Boots
Stippling Brush Real Techniques - Boots

Iv been using the Healthy mix Serum for a while now and Its a brilliant foundation, I have normal/combination skin, it looks so natural and blends in with my skin tone perfectly. I've also been using the Kryolan concealer wheel, I bourgh this from the stand at IMATS and love it! its got 6 different shades of pale concealers on 1 wheel so you can change the tone throughout summer and winter when your skin changes and they're very creamy and don't crease at all which Is brilliant. Finally I use this powder on my T-zone to keep away any shine and is a very smooth finishing powder. To blend my foundation in I use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush by Samantha Chapman and I couldn't recommend this brush enough! I love her range of brushes and they're fibers are very soft and great quality! 

Hope you enjoyed the post!
