The Body Shop & Superdrug Haul

Who loves a haul? I sure do. I was online shopping a couple of days ago, I hardly ever shop in Superdrug I have no idea why, I normally get all my makeup in Boots. I saw someones blog post about Tanya Burrs lip glosses and Eyelashes and the lady kinda persuaded me to give them a try (her pictures made them look even better) Im not really the type of person to go and buy what Youtubers have bought out, but as its makeup I thought why not give it a go? I love eyelashes anyway and they looked pretty, so I went for Date night and the Individual Lashes. Everyone has been saying how pigmented her lip glosses are and how they smell of sweets so I picked up the shade 'chic' which is a pretty nude shade, I can't wait to see what all the fuss is about, maybe ill end up loving them?! As I had a few things in my cart already I thought I should try an eyeshadow again, as a couple of years ago every time I put eyeshadow onto my eyelids they would irritate my eyes and it would feel uncomfortable, so since then I've never put anything on my eyelids, but I thought why not try again as that was ages ago, So I picked the Bourjois Colour Edition 24H in the shade Petale De Glace 3, fingers crossed my eyes are ok when I apply this, its such a pretty shade.

I only picked up two products from The Body shop, Aloe Soothing Day Cream which I always end up going back to as its my favourite moisturiser ever, and then I picked up the SeaWeed Ionic Clay Mask, this has always been out of stock, every time I look for it either online or in the shop its never there argh!! I love clay masks as they help my combination skin, and sorts out all my open pores, YUCK.

I hope you enjoyed this little haul, let me know if you have tried any of these products! :)

GlossyBox // December edition

GlossyBox know how to make their boxes look pretty with every theme they do, as you have probably guessed we are in december which means its christmasssss, how cute is that white red and green packaging? I must admit I am a bit disappointed in this months box, I wish their was more exciting things to try, to me this just seems like a normal standard box, BUT I will be trying them all out and there are things in there I wouldn't actually buy, so I may really like them, thats what I love about these subscription boxes. Lets go ahead and see whats inside...
I love Tresemme hair products Ive only tried a few of their products but thats enough to make me like them, this is the Renewal Hair & Sculp Nourish & Renew Tonic, it contains tee tree extract and sunflower seed oil that will instantly help to nourish your scalp and renew your hair. Once you have shampooed and conditioned your hair, apply a small amount directly onto the scalp targeting on the roots and do not rinse. This sounds quite interesting ill definitely be giving this ago, even though I have no problems with my scalp (Just saying) Im up for anything that will condition my hair nicely.
Funily enough I've never tried a serum before, this is the SkinPep Hydra Boost - Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This contains the clinically proven cell, communicating ingredient, hyaluronic acid, in a perfume free, alcohol free, hypo allergenic formulation that will provide a healthy new skin glow. You can apply this day or night onto cleansed face, god knows if this will do my wonders to my skin but I'm sure it will help in these colder months. 
This colour is gorgeous, they definitely new to put a christmasy colour in their, this is the All that Jazz Nail Lacquer, I think this is in the shade Androullas black cherry on top. Ive already tested it and I love it, its that perfect redy/berry glittery colour.
Next is this Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek & Lip stain, this lovely coral colour is going to be lovely for the summer.
The last product is this Antomicals Zap!Zap!Zap! Gets that chap. Day and Night Spot Stick, in my last LoveMeBeauty box I got the antomicals face mask, and I loved them, so I wonder if this stick will be like similar to the masks, This isn't an exciting product as I don't actually get spots so I wont need to use this that much but its nice to have something on the side if I get the odd horrible one.

So theres the GlossyBox christmas edition, I am pleased with this months box, their isn't nothing I hate but I wish their was more outstanding products, but having 4 full sized products and 1 travel sized product is pretty amazing for £10 a month.

November Favourites

Where the hell did November go? It flew by, I know this is a little late but hey ho! I haven't been loving much products lately, so these four are the only ones that stood out for me in the past month.

Lets start off with these two Real Techniques brushes from the Limited Edition, ones a cheek Brush but I don't actually use it for blush, I'm loving to for contouring and bronzing, It makes me contouring much easier to apply as it fits right into my cheek bones, I love a brush that you can use for all different things. Next is the Duo-Fibre Face brush, I'm loving this for foundation, powder and also for bronzer now and then if I want a natural look, It makes my skin look lovely and flawless, its quite hard to use it for foundation but at the end my skin looks lovely. I can't remember the exact price, its roughly around £30 I think for the whole kit you get 3 other small brushes also.

I'm also loving this So Susan blush, the colour is gorgeous for this time of year, You literally tap your brush in once and its that pigmented you only need a tiny tiny bit, I love that its got abit of shimmer in it so its a 2 in 1 product, and you don't really need a highlighter as it gives such a soft glow already.

The last make up product is this Absolute bronzing boost, I never thought I would get much use out of this, but I'm currently using the Bourjois healthy mix foundation and its a tad light for me but I love wearing it so I mix this bronzing boost with my foundation and it just makes it a little bit darker so it matches me, its great. Ill also use this under my foundation as a base for bronzer then over the top ill add a powdered bronzer to make it last longer.

Let me know what products you have enjoyed using in November!

1.When do you start getting excited about christmas?
Im pretty excited now if I'm honest EEEK, but when its the week before christmas Ill be extremely excited, I love the build up before christmas, it doesn't even seem real that its only 3 weeks away, HOLY MOLY!

4.Favourite festive Food?
Obviously you can beat a christmas dinner with turkey, ham, pigs in blankets gravy, roast potatoes ect.... BUT I do love having a turkey sandwich with fluffy bread mmmmmm. Lets just say I love all the food :D

5.Talk us through your typical christmas day
Ill wake up and then unwrap my stocking it used to be a big stocking but now I'm older its only a few little things, we will then have breakfast, shower and get ready before everyone comes over for around 1pm, whilst dinners cooking we just sit down and chat and have a few drinks, we then have dinner around 3ish and we normally sit at the table for ages as you then have pudding ect, when everyones full we make our way into the front room to watch abit of telly as we are so stuffed, then when it gets around 8ish we start to play games as we are all abit merry then, so it makes the games more interesting haha :p we will literally play games till we have had enough, we just drink and eat till we explode, oh cannot forget the after eights!!!

10.Real or fake christmas tree
We used to always get a real christmas tree but the last 2 years my parents went and bought a fake one, But I would get a real christmas tree, the smell of the tree when you walk into your house everyday is heavenly, but the pain of it is when it starts to drop and you have to hoover up all the time haha.
