Glossybox October 2016 // Unboxing

Hi guys!  I’m sorry this is SO late!!  I mean it’s basically the last day of the month and I’m finally showing you the October 2016 Glossybox!  As you may have noticed, I’m not posting as regularly lately.  

As you probably know, I have chronic illnesses (if you don’t, this will fill you in!)  I often simply don’t feel well enough to take photographs, edit or write a post.  It’s frustrating as I have so many things I’m dying to share with you, but there’s nothing I can do.  Sadly, my health has to come first.

As you’ve probably already seen the October Glossybox around, I’m not going to go into much detail.  I’ll just show you what I got, and tell you if anything particularly impressed me!

You Beauty September 2016 Review and Unboxing

You Beauty September 2016 // Unboxing!

Hola!  I’m back with more beauty box unboxing – this time it’s the You Beauty September 2016 box!  This month’s theme is The Editor’s Picks.  Everything in the You Beauty September 2016 box has been hand picked by Sue Peart, Editor of You Magazine.  Apparently all the products have proved themselves to the You Beauty team, and to fellow beauty insiders.

Let’s be honest, it’s got to be better than last month’s box…!

Glossybox September 2016 // Unboxing!

Hi guys!  Hope you’re all good.  I’ve had a pretty bad week healthwise this week, which is why there hasn’t been a post for a little while.  That said, I’m just going to make this an unboxing of the Glossybox September 2016.  I usually go into quite a lot of detail reviewing each product.  Sadly, if I wait until I’m well enough to do that, it’ll be ages until I post!  Hope you don’t mind!  (Also if you’re not a regular reader, here’s why I’ve been unwell).

The September theme is about breathing new life into our routine, and into our products.

Cohorted My Little Treat Box – July 2016 // Unboxing!

Hola!  I hope you’re having a great day.  It was recently my wedding anniversary.  We weren’t meant to be doing presents but my naughty husband ended up buying me a few!  Luckily for me, one of those presents was the Cohorted My Little Treat Box July box!

Cohorted: My Little Treat Beauty Box – July 2016

I’ve never had a Cohorted box before, as they are quite expensive.  They do a monthly luxury beauty box for £35 a month.  The Cohorted My Little Treat Box is one of their one-off, limited edition boxes.  They vary in price depending on the contents, but this particular box cost £50.

Hi there!  I hope you’re having a good day.  It’s that time again – beauty box time!  This post is the You Beauty August 2016 ‘The Beauty Solutions Edit’ review and unboxing.  As I mentioned in this post, this month’s beauty boxes have been a bit disappointing!  Glossybox wasn’t too bad, but this box was so disappointing.  Read on to find out why!

The Beauty Solutions Edit claims to pull out all the stops to get us back to looking and feeling our best.  I’m not sure what’s with the ‘get you back to looking your best’.  Maybe they think we’ve been letting ourselves go?  Haha!

Glossybox August 2016 Review and Unboxing Rae Feather 5th Birthday

Glossybox August 2016 // Unboxing and Review!

Hey guys!  How are you?  Hope you’re well!  It’s time for the Glossybox August unboxing.  If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that I’m not super fussy.  I generally really enjoy my beauty boxes and I’m not that hard to please.  Saying that…!  This month’s boxes were really not that great.  My You Beauty one was the worst this month, but the Glossybox wasn’t great either.

August 2016 Glossybox

Rae Feather

Apparently Glossybox are five years old this month.  I’m surprised they didn’t make more of the birthday theme – instead they focused on fashion label Rae Feather.  I hadn’t heard of this brand before, but apparently they are a British brand launched in late 2013.   They aim to provide good quality, affordable luxury fashion.  

As one of our five items in the Glossybox August 2016, we received a Rae Feather ‘pochette’.  What the h*ll is a pochette I hear you ask?  Apparently it’s basically a small canvas zipped bag, with the Glossybox initials monogrammed on the front.  It’s lined to make it splash-proof.

July 2016 Glossybox Review and Unboxing

Glossybox // July 2016 // Review and Unboxing!

Hi guys!  Hope you’re having a good day.  It’s that time again – Glossybox time!  The July Glossybox is based around the best beauty products to bring us a sunless sunkissed glow.  

Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription box where you sign up for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months to get one box per month.  The box will include five samples/products – they are always a surprise, as you don’t choose what you receive.  The box costs £13.25 per month for the month-to-month plan, but can be as little as £11.75 if you are willing to commit for a whole year.
