Spoilabox September

There's a new beauty box in town and I'm in love!! Spoilabox is not actually 'new' but
new to me. Currently on the 4th box this beauty subscription box is packed full of beauty must haves and tasty treats too!


Having come across a post on a facebook group advertising Spoilabox, I couldnt resist signing up. It has been an age since my last subscription box, (house deposit saving sucks!) so I thought well why not treat myself?

I quickly snooped on their Facebook and Instagram pages and liked what I saw straight away. Last months box contained a full size moisturising cream from brand Betty Hula which is one of my favs! Just a shame I didnt come across this sub box sooner!

Every month Lucy (Spoilabox's creator) posts a sneek preview spoiler for the upcoming month. The spoiler for September was a Bath Blaster Bath Bomb (try saying that fast 5 times!) from Bomb Cosmetics. It looked so lush...but unfortunately I don't have a bath in my tiny flat :( I had commented on the post saying this and within minutes Lucy was offering to send a replacement product. Now that is what I call excellent customer service!

Okay so enough rambling...onto what's in the box...


First up is a full sized Moisturising Body Milk from Korres. Enriched with Almond oil, active Aloe and provitamin B5 that enriches skin suppleness. I received the Jasmine scented lotion which smells lovely.

Next was two products from Lola's Apothecary. This is a brand I've heard of but never used before.

*Sweet Lullaby Soothing Body & Massage Oil which can be used all over the body as a cleanser, moisturiser, stretch mark treatment & massage oil. Can also be used on nails as a healing treatment.
*Rainbows & Whirlwinds Energising Tea. I'm not normally a tea drinker, coffee is my thing, but it smells so good that I will definitely be giving it a go.

Also in the box is a nail polish from Makeup Revolution. I'm not a huge nail polish wearer but the colour I received is very versatile so it's something that can be worn with any outfit. This is from the Limited Edition Mermaid Collection.



Speaking of mermaids!!! My replacement product I received in place of the bath bomb is this gorgeous unicorn heart highlighter from IHeartMakeup. What girl doesnt need a unicorn highlighter in her makeup bag?! It's so sparkly, I love it!


Lucy even added a wee note and a bar of chocolate...very nice personal touch

Last but not least...tasty treats!! 
Sugarsin Cocktail Candy Gummies infused with real wine or cocktails....need I say more? Cocktails & sweets in one YES PLEASE!


That concludes this months Spoilabox. What is your favourite product this month??

My C9 Journey - Forever Living Cleanse

As the saying goes the diet starts on monday! The only difference is I'm not going on a diet but a Cleanse....The C9 Cleanse to be exact! I have started today and so far so good!

So what is a C9?
The C9 programme can help to jump-start your journey to a slimmer, healthier you! Primarily an Aloe Vera based cleanse, the C9 works by eliminating toxins from the body which thus leads to a more effectively weight loss.




Days 1 & 2 you have lots of Aloe Vera Gel and a combination of supplements (Garcinia, Therm & Fiber) and one meal replacement shake (Forever Lite Ultra). The combination of these products eliminate toxins, break down fat & increase your metabolism however because of their high nutritional content your body does not go into starvation mode & you still have lots of energy!

Days 3-9 consist of the Aloe Vera Gel & supplements as well as two meal replacement shakes and one 600 calorie meal.

The first couple of days aims to reset your body and mind. There is also a “free food” list of items which can be eaten throughout the cleanse so you won't go hungry!


A break down of the products:

Aloe Vera Gel – contains over 70 different vitamins, minerals & trace elements.  Boosts the immune system + digestive system & cleanses the body whilst aiding nutrient absorption.

Forever Garcinia - an appetite suppressant, contains chromium which contributes to  macronutrient metabolism & maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.

Forever Therm - contains a special combination of vitamins, including B6 & B12, which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin C also contributes to a normal energy yielding metabolism.

Fiber – helps removal of waste and helps you feel full so you don't feel the need to snack!

Aminotein shake – 2 shakes provide 100% of recommended daily vitamins & minerals, available in Vanilla or Chocolate (Vanilla - 201 cals per shake).


*If anyone would like to do a C9 please get in touch with me and I will coach you through your journey*

Cult Beauty Summer Goody Bag + Haul

When an email from Cult Beauty popped into my inbox last week, telling me about their new Summer Goody Bag, I couldn't resist getting my hands on it. The goody bag is a GWP when you spend £110 and has a combined RRP of over £175. Now I already have loads and I mean LOADS of beauty products but as I said.... I couldn't resist!


This is my haul

Nuxe Essentials Starter Kit (£13.50)
I'm a big fan of French brand Nuxe and love that these mini sizes come in a lovely zip bag perfect for travel.
Prodigieux Shower Oil with Golden Shimmer (30ml), Micellar Cleansing Water (35ml), Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil (10ml), Prodigieux Le Parfum (1.2ml), Crème Fraîche de Beauté (15ml), and Rêve de Miel Ultra Comforting Body Cream (30ml
Pixi Glow Tonic (£18)
This is my favourite toner which I use twice a day after cleansing. It has worked wonders on my skin and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has troubled skin. It gently exfoliates and tones at the same time. Containing Glycolic Acid which is great for acne prone skin, reducing scarring and imperfections and Aloe Vera to help sooth and hydrate.
Stila Colour Correct (£24)
After hearing great things about this product, I couldn't wait to try it. My verdict.... very nice must have for any beauty bag.
Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water (£15)
Another French brand and my go to for cleansing water. Removes makeup with ease.
Emma Hardie Amazing Face Travel Collection (£35)
Ive only ever tried Emma Hardie's Protect & Prime which I loved so wanted to try out a few of the other products from the brand to see how I liked them before committing to full sizes.
Moringa Cleansing Balm (15ml), Dual Action Cleansing Cloth, Rosehip Exfoliating Seeds (10g), Age Support Face Cream (15ml), Protect & Prime SPF 30 (5ml) and the replenishing Intense Body Lotion (100ml)
Ouai Haircare Treatment Masque (£25)
A brand I've never come across, Ouai (pronounced 'way'). Containing 8 individual sachets this treatment will leave hair nourished and silky soft within minutes. I can't get enough hair products so this made its way into my basket without much of a second thought!
The free Goody Bag
*The following RRPs are for sizes received based on prices of full sized products.

Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector 12ml (£8.40*), Sachajuan Colour Save Shampoo 100ml (£7.20*), Pixi Glow Tonic 15ml (£1.08*)


Cult Beauty Bag (£20), Tony Moly I'm Real Rice Face Mask full size (£6), Vita Lemon Sparkling Powder Duo full size(£10)


Nature's Living Superfood 20g (£7*), Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturiser half size 30ml (£30*)
Kevyn Aucoin The Eye Pencil Primatif sample in Navy (£1.26*), W3ll People Bio Brightener Invisible Powder half size (£10*), Laura Geller Bronze N Brighten Fair 1.8g (£5.20*)
