July Glossybox 2012-My thoughts!

Box contents
This Months Glossybox in my opinion was quite impressive. With the HD Brows kit being included once again(Full sized £19.95-palette). Which is great since I dropped and smashed my last one. Also included is A Jelly pong pong Lip frosting (Full size £10-15ml)scented with Irish cream pavlova (which also may be the colour as I can't find the colour on it). A Monu Golden Glow face self tanner(30ml, Fulll size £23/200ml), A Clynol enrich colour shampoo(50ml, Full size £9.35/200ml) and an Elizabeth Arden Skin balancing lotion (5ml, Full size £32/50ml)which I am really looking forward to trying as I haven't tried Elizabeth Arden before. I also received a bonus item of Elizabeth Arden skin balancing line sample which was a lovely surprise. I haven't seen any other reviews with a bonus item and may be because I have a years subscription. All in all I think Glossybox have redeemed themselves this month with the shambles of last months box.

Lush Haul

Angels on Bare Skin £5.95/100g

Angels on Bare Skin

Angels on Bare Skin is a fresh facial cleanser. According to the Lush website they claim that " Angels on Bare Skin evens out skin tone, reduces redness and improves the health and appearance of your skin – giving a natural healthy glow"
it contains ground almonds which add a nice exfoliation to the skin. Iv only been using this product for a few days and I really like it. With it you take a small pea sized amount and mix with water to turn to a paste and then use all over. My skin feels soft and fresh after using. 


Ultrabland £6.45/45g

"A rich, soft, oily cleansing cream that cares gently for all skin types.
Softens the skin whilst thoroughly cleaning it – this product is super effective at its job.
Based on an ancient beeswax and vegetable oil formula from the times of Galen, the Greek physician and philosopher, this product will lift dirt, grease and make up from the skin, without stripping away your skin's natural defences." Lush website 
I have really enjoyed using this product- I have oily skin and my skin hasn't gotten more oily since using this prodcut. Its fab for taking off make up. Just rub product into damp skin and wash off with a warm cloth or cotten pad. 

H'suan Wen  

H'suan Wen Hua £8.50/225g

H'suan Wen Hua is a hair mask treatment, just run through dry hair leave on for 20-30mins and then wash hair as normal. Contains raw eggs to give the hair an amazing shine! 
I have loved using this product I used it a few days ago and my hair still feels super soft and moisturised. This is a great treat product! I would definitely recommend it!

Skin care loves- series!

I love to look after my skin, i believe that a good skincare routine is super important. i like to cleanse tone and moistuise as well as exfoliate and use face masks and pore strips. As well as it keeping your skin in tip top condition its also nice to have a pampering treat. Theres nothing quite as nice as popping on a face mask and chilling out in the bath with some relaxing music and candles.

So I am now on a quest to find the perfect skincare routine and in the coming weeks will have a series of reviews from cleansing to toning and then on to moisturiser! I have been testing 3 different cleansing waters so I will be reviewing them first.

Do any of you have any recommendations on what I should try, or anything you would like me to review??

Comments always welcome!
