Glossybox | June

Urgh, this month has been haaaawt. Seriously, I love it but when Tiny Human is up all night as he's all hot and bothered, the 31 degrees can piss off really. I am so glad it cooled off towards the end and normality restored.

Beauty Pro Black Diamond Peel Off Mask
Excuse the action shot, this isn't as glamorous and I thought it would have been. I have seen these all over the internet for a while now and never actually purchased any as I'm kind of loyal to my standard Newton Lab's nose strips as many don't work on my nose (Biore included!). This for me I'm afraid is a huge pass. It didn't work, when I peeled it off I saw nothing being drawn out of my pores, and mumma knows there is shit in there. I really wanted this to work but no. I think this will be in my most disappointing products of all time, not just even 2017!

111 Skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel
Oh mumma, this stuff is expensive. You get 5ml in the sample and you pay £110 for the full size of 15ml! So this then works out at about £36 for this! I have been using this night and day since I've got this on my left eye and I am loving it! I have only been using this on one eye due to the fact I got another eye cream in my Birchbox so thought I would compare! A little goes a long way with eye creams so this is such a generous sample. I have sensitive eyes and this hasn't made them sting. I am kinda annoyed I liked this more than the other one, however, this will be the only time I will ever use this! It is just too pricey for me. After using two different eye creams, I honestly think the eye which I have used this gel on looks so much better. The fine lines don't seem so obvious and plumped up. It's definitely a 10/10 for me.

Sleek Makeup Power Plump Lip Crayon
#1050 Notorious Nude
I can't decide if I like this or not! It's just so-so. It is basically just a gloss on my lips, no colour so I have just been using this onto of lipstick which I have been enjoying but wouldn't say it's a game changer. I will keep it and use this as it has made a home in my work make up bag but once I've used this all up I doubt I will buy this anytime again. There are 6 shades in the range and maybe one would work better, but I honestly think I would have forgotten about this by then. I kinda feel like my lips are too pigmented for shade. 

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash
Alright, two things I thought when I first saw this bottle. 1. Who the hell are Himalaya and 2. What the F is neem?! So turns out neem is a tree grown in the India subcontinent and has ridiculous amounts of claims to it. Such as anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. That is just to name a few. This is why I have been loving it this month! My skin has had no breakouts, just the one hormonal one that everyone dreads. The first thing I noticed about this face wash is that it is thick, which may sound stupid but seriously I used so much in a few days as the gel just flys out the tube but turns out you only need a little bit. My skin has been looking so much clearer since using this as it has pretty much controlled my current breakouts and prevented any further ones. I'm a little upset this is almost empty, I'm not entirely sure where you can buy this. May need to look into this once I've finished up my other daily washes! 

Batiste Stylist Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray
Oi Oi! I see what you've done there Glossy, you had a note saying the designs of these are changing....have a few in your warehouses did ya?! That aside, I love this spray. I haven't actually used this before, I normally just use their dry shampoo for volume. This is life changing for your hair. Kinda shook at the volume this actually gives you. It has lived in my office draw as I am full on loving this for the midday refresh. This may sound stupid but this has made me feel a bit more confident in my hair as after the hairdresser cut it so short I hated it, but with this it makes it look that bit better. I personally don't think this lasts all day but still good.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo
Well, this is definitely a better size than their face powder! I'm going to say it, I am not convinced by this brand. The powder was so-so which you can read about here and this is exactly the same. I am oily AF so I wouldn't mix this into my foundation like one of the suggestions as my skin looks worse. I was hoping for some sort of blinding highlight but it wasn't. When I tried to blend this out it literally just blended away so again pretty pointless for the face. I will keep this though, as it has tiny specs of glitter in so as it blends out so much it does look pretty on the shoulders. Especially with a tan. This though is another disappointment for me as I was just expecting more!
