MY FIRST BIRCHBOX! // August 2015 #BeautyJunkie

Wednesday, 16 September 2015


Hey guys! Today's post features an exciting new series I'll be doing showcasing the wonderful Birchbox monthly subscription.

If you haven't heard of Birchbox, they're basically a subscription service that send you brand new beauty treats each month, right to your front door. Being an avid beauty product lover myself, I'd wanted to try these for ages, and have been very impressed so far!

The month of August was the #BEAUTYJUNKIE special, and contained many exciting goodies. Here's my review on each of the items and what I loved about August's birchbox. Enjoy!

UV Indicator Wristbands: The New Way To Protect your Skin in the Sun!

Most of us tend to underestimate the importance of looking after our skin in the summer. Whether you've been going abroad on holiday, spending hours on the beach, or trekking around your local city and baring your skin in short shorts, I'll bet you've been exposing yourself to the sun in copious amounts.

But sun protection is a big deal: not only can it bring on wrinkles at a younger age, it also poses huge risks to the likes of skin cancer.

"In some cases, the sun causes an uneven increase in melanin production, which produces irregular coloring (pigmentation) of the skin. The sun can also cause a permanent stretching of small blood vessels, giving your skin a mottled, reddish appearance." - mayoclinic.org

This Foundation Could be a Game Changer

Thursday, 3 September 2015


Do you ever come across a beauty gem so wonderful you immediately felt the compelling urge to write about it?

True Match Super Blendable Foundation from L'Oreal Paris has made me feel this way. 

After somehow losing my favourite brand of foundation last week, Dream Satin Liquid by Maybelline New York, I was desperately on the hunt for a new one to replace it. Using Rimmel London's BB Cream as a sole substitute wasn't quite living up to the job: I have very problematic, acne-prone skin, and whilst it worked well as a primer, it did a poor job of covering up my blemishes. :(
