New Year's Party Essentials 2015 ❤

Hello my lovelies
Hope you're all well? I'm having a blogging morning, whilst watching Tinker Bell - Life is good. I still can't get my head around the fact that Christmas has gone? I do find this period of time between Christmas and New Year quite awkward, but I always look forward to a New Year! I love to glam up a little on New Years Eve/Day, so I thought I would talk you about a brand that I was recently introduced too, as well as showing you a few other party time favourites. I hope you enjoy this post my loves and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.

When I heard about the brand Threads I was excited to learn more, especially as they have just launched a New Lash & Brow collection in store Harvery Nichols, Knightsbridge. I was in London not that long ago and I'm gutted that I didn't get to stop by, but there will definitely be more chances for me to visit in 2016. Threads are an Irish beauty brand that retail a collection of handmade strip lashes with a tailor made flexi-bands for the perfect fit. Threads also have a collection of nourishing mineral-based brown and eye pencils that are inspired by their lash bar experience in Ireland. I don't tend to wear lashes often, but when it comes to a night out or a special occasion they are first on my list to give my eyes a little Va Va Voom! I was lucky enough to be sent their Red Cherri and Rock Chick lashes, as well as their Crayon De Sourcil Eyebrow Pencil. I was hoping to create a look for this post, but I had my four year old niece who wanted her nails painted as well as wanting to cook Frozen Cakes, so something had to give ha! I will definitely be creating a look in the near future though and would love to start posting a few more tutorials on my blog.
When I first set my eyes on the Red Cherri lashes they definitely looked intense, but actually I think they would make the ultimate party lash, as they are so striking! I was definitely drawn in by the Rock Chick Lashes, which I would love to wear with a subtle grey smokey eye and a nude/pink lip. I briefly tried on the Rock Chick Lashes and wow they were seriously amazing and the most impressive thing was actually the quality of the band and also the application felt so sturdy! Once the glue had set, I had my work cut out getting them off, which is obviously a good thing when you're wanting to look your best for a special occasion. The stand out product for me has definitely been the Crayon De Sourcil Eyebrow Pencil (Full review coming soon), which is literally a brow lovers dream and the standout product for me! The pencil is described as being a semi permanent pencil (but don't be scared) that just means that it has kick ass staying power and combined with the handy brow brush it gives you fierce brows. Hassle free. 
Moving onto my 'Party Essentials' I always have to carry a little clutch/bag with me, as I do like to carry a lipstick, gloss, concealer and mini perfume like this Lancome one (If possible) I'm also really loving the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, as it works amazingly to brighten any pesky dark areas, as well as being super easy to apply. On a night out I always take a concealer with me, as my biggest concern is always how my under eye area looks! I'm such a bad sleeper, so I often suffer with darkness and puffiness (Boohoo) not a cool party look. My party clutch also wouldn't be complete without a Killer Lip Combo and that's where my YSL Rouge Volupte #LingeriePink & NARS #TurkishDelight Gloss, which work fabulously together to create a super striking lip.
I hope you've enjoyed this post my loves and I hope you all have a fantastic New Year! Don't forget to leave your comments below, as I really love hearing from you!

Lots of Love

My Top 6 Beauty Products || 2015

Hello Lovelies
Hope you're all doing well and looking forward to the New Year? It's come around pretty quickly, but I'm excited to give 2016 my best shot! Since becoming beauty obsessed at age 16 I've come across some truly fantastic products that I love to repurchase. Despite not indulging in so many Limited Edition releases this year, I've definitely found some fantastic products that have been consistently in my makeup bag through 2015! I hope you enjoy this summary post my loves and I would love to hear what your top products have been this year?

Never did I believe that this product could have had such an impact on me! I'm definitely a lipstick and base product kinda gal and can pretty much take or leave powder products most of the time. The Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow has been by my side (literally) since purchasing it at the start of the year. It comes at a price (£49) but soon as I'm out I will be heading back to get a replacement. The quality and tone of the powders is just amazing and the packaging is just as luxurious. It really has been a star product for me this year!

There was a time where I was scared of Red lipstick and MAC 'Red' was the only Red I would even attempt to wear and even that was only on a rare occasion! 2015 has seen me embrace Red lipsticks more and not only do I have several in my collection now, but I wear them with so much confidence! My favourite has to be my NARS Audacious Lipstick in the shade #Lana, which I would describe as a wearable orange toned Red - Oh isn't she a beauty? When I put this lipstick on my face instantly feels brighter and I'm ready to bring my A game! The formula is also super comfortable and I can't wait to try some more NARS lipsticks in the New Year

Last July I attended a wedding and decided to treat myself to a NARS makeover - The lovely makeup artist asked me if I would like to try their latest foundation that was higher coverage than Sheer Glow (Which I also Love) I decided to try it, as it was a wedding and I needed the coverage. I honestly did not expect the foundation to stay perfectly in place from 2pm in the afternoon to 2am in the morning. Despite having a fuller coverage it's definitely the most natural looking full coverage foundation that I have ever tried - It's also fab for work, as it really does stay put all day.

If the name isn't good enough this lipstick has definitely developed a name for itself in the beauty world! Bitch Perfect is the perfect pinky-peachy medium pink neutral that will always have a home in my lipstick collection. The formula is honestly out of this world and I've loved wearing this lippy right throughout 2015!

This is more of a recent product that I actually purchased from Heathrow on the way to Dubai last October. I was running a bit low on concealer and after swatching this against the YSL Touche Eclat, which I have used on and off, I actually preferred the look and feel of the Burberry Sheer Concealer. It blends in beautifully and provides a natural-looking medium coverage for pesky dark circles, without emphasising fine lines... It's a winner for me! 

Last but not least! I always end up back with the Chanel Intimitable Mascara and I really do love it for achieving long, but natural looking lashes. This mascara is completely clump free and I've honestly never had an issue with having to separate clumping or it applying unevenly. I've used it since I was 16 and It's here to stay!


I hope you've enjoyed this post lovelies! I would love to hear all about your favourites below - Don't forget to leave me your links too!

Lots of Love

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms Review ❤

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms Review
Hello my lovelies!
Hope you're all doing really well? I can't believe Christmas is over already, but after a pretty up and down 2015 I'm actually feeling really positive about going into the New Year... more than I have ever felt before! I'm engaged to my best friend and I know that there are many good things to come for us both! I'm also feeling really positive about my blog and I'm seriously considering starting vlogging in the New Year. Believe it or not I actually started out on YouTube when I was a confident teenager, but between one thing and another I lost my confidence and ended up pursing my blog (which of course I love to the moon and back) Anyhow... before I start rambling I thought I would write up a post about a gorgeous gift that my amazing friend Aislinn got me for Christmas. The funny thing about this gift is that I actually got it for her too and we didn't even discuss it or drop any hints #wecomeasapair. I'm so lucky to work with such a fabulous girl! Anyway my loves I hope you enjoy this post and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below! I hope you all had a fab Christmas and best of luck for the New Year :)
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms Review
They say the best things come in small packages and in this case they really do! I have an obsession with mini products. There is something so cute about mini products and of course they are super travel friendly! I was so lucky to receive these gorgeous little CT lippies off the lovely Aislinn who blogs at (lippyinthecity) and since opening them I honestly haven't put them down. I've already tried the shades Penelope Pink (universal nude) and Bitch Perfect (universal pink) which would pretty much suit anyone, but I love having them in mini sizes for when I take out a smaller handbag or clutch! The real stand out shade for me has been the iconic 'So Marilyn' which is honestly the most captivating Red shade ever. Each shade is enriched with a secret CT ingredient that nourishes the lips with a protective UV-Shielding coating, helping your lips to stay supple all year round. To ensure only the finest pout Charlotte Tilbury adds light-diffusing particles within her K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula to give lips a full bodied, three dimensional finish. I can honestly say that after using CT lipsticks for over a year, that I 100% agree with her every claim. I seriously put one on and feel like Angelina Jolie (if only for a little while) They make your lips look their absolute best and I've never experienced any dryness or bleeding out issues with the CT  K.I.S.S.I.NG formula.

Overall
I honestly feel so grateful to have received these beautiful little lippies as a gift and I would 100% recommend them as a gift if you're on the look out for a little treat or a birthday gift (seeing as the festive season is coming to an end) What girl wouldn't want a little CT in her life? They are £29, so not that cheap, but they are such a great way to try out Charlotte Tilbury without just committing to one shade - I would love to hear from you in the comments section below lovelies :)

Instagram Update &. Reflection ❤



Hello my loves!
I thought I would write a more personal post today, as I'm probably not going to get to blog for a little while with all the festivities! 2015 has been a serious roller coaster for me and despite having some harder times at the start of the year... I've definitely finished 2015 on a high. I'm engaged to my best friend and went on the holiday of a life time! In terms of my blog, I've definitely improved my photography in 2015 and being shortlisted out of 64k for the Cosmo Blog Awards was truly a memorable experience. I didn't place, but to get that far and step out of my comfort zone has given me so much will to carry on and hopefully continue to improve my content in 2016!

Instagram Update
I thought I would also include a little instagram update, as I see these on my favourite blogs all the time. (L-R) - (1) I love a good old quote and this particular quote is definitely a good one for 2015! I've taken a few blows this year between one thing and another, but I've come out on top and right now things are great! (2) I don't tend to do too many throwback posts, but when I found this beautiful picture of when we have snow at home a few years back I just had to share it again. I kinda wish we had some snow now or at least some frost to make me feel a little more festive. (3) This week we hit 50k Twitter followers in work and it was such a great milestone to reach just before Christmas. Working in marketing in a hotel definitely has its struggles (It really is 24/7) but I've definitely persevered and it's great to get rewards like this! (4) I went through a stage of trying to make my instagram look more pretty by adding a white border and trying to keep themes and colours similar. It just didn't work for me, as I love to use my Instagram to show everything I love - Including beautiful scenery images like this one I took from home last weekend. (5) I've recently gotten into snap logging, which i'm really enjoying! I decided to take a bit of a festive selfie whilst I was at it :) (6) Last but not least I thought I would share this magical image of Iceland! I've been lucky to travel to Lapland a few times, but myself and Daniel are really interested in going to Blue Lagoon next year! I also want a wintery wedding, so it may even give me a few ideas. 


Goals for 2016!
- Give blogging/youtube one last shot!
- Go to more blogger events further away from home
- Add more lifestyle posts to my blog 
- Devote time to my brand Jewel By India R
- Look to make plans to get a house with Daniel 
- Start getting some ideas for my wedding 
- Improve my diet 
- Improve my sleeping pattern
- Start a new hobby (Yoga?!)


Thank you all for your continued support! It would not be possible to stay motivated if I didn't have so many lovely readers and so many nice messages throughout the year. I hope you all enjoy the remainder of 2015 and enjoy the start of a brand New Year! PS: Don't forget to send me your goals too! I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.

Pixi Glow Tonic Review ❤

Hello my lovelies!
Hope you're all doing well? I'm super excited to have finished work until the 4th January! I worked quite a lot of Christmas last year, so I'm really grateful to have some more time off with my loved ones this year. It's been a pretty hectic year, but I'm looking forward to what I'm hoping will be a very exciting 2016! I hope you enjoy tonight's review and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below! 

I must admit I'm quite a toner lover! I know not everyone loves using a toner, but for me they finalise my cleanse and make sure my skin is free of any residue. It's no secret that my favourite toner of all time is the Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner, but I do like to shop around and look for new products to love (obviously the blogger in me ha!) I've also used toners fro Liz Earle and Sisley, which I also adore... so what do I think about Pixi Glow Tonic. I have to be brutally honest with you, it wasn't love at first use! I used this consistently for a few weeks after first purchasing it and even though I didn't dislike it... there wasn't enough about it to make me prefer it to any others I had already tried. Described as being 'Instantly refreshing' and alcohol free the Pixi Glow Tonic brightens, tones and conditions your skin after cleansing. It's enriched with glycol acid a member of the hydroxy acid family as well as Aloe, ginseng and hazel, which soothes, hydrates and tones the skin whilst promoting dewy radiance. 

After replacing this toner with the Sisley Floral Toning Lotion for a little while (which is fab) I decided to give this cult beauty product another go! After not being instantly in love, I wondered if I had expected too much too soon! after all it's hailed by pretty much everyone I love to watch/read in the beauty world and I'm glad I revisited. The past few months have been pretty insane between travelling and a hectic schedule I started to get some seriously pesky spots around my chin area, which seriously wouldn't budge. It was only when I started using the Pixi Glow Tonic that I noticed them starting to fade away. I also tend to scar for quite a few months when I get a bad spot and despite not being able to shift my troublesome skin for a while, it seems that the Pixi Glow Tonic might have genuinely helped to get rid of them as it was the only new addition to my routine at the time. 
My skin has definitely been a lot clearer and smoother since bringing the Pixi Glow Tonic back into my routine. It may not have been love at first use, but I think that perhaps I was to quick to judge with this one. I will definitely keep you updated and will write a quick update when I'm finished. At £18 it's not cheap, but definitely worth checking out! Find out more 


I would love to know your thoughts on this products lovelies... is it your holy grail or a product you're looking to try in the New Year.

Lots of Love

Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask Review ❤

Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask Review


Hi Lovelies!
Hope you're all keeping well? I'm very rarely off on a Monday, but I must admit I do enjoy having a Monday off even if it means I have to work a Saturday. I've managed to catch up on a bit of blogging today, as well as popping out for some lunch, which was a nice treat! I'm sure most of my readers already know I'm a bit of a skincare junkie, but as much as I love a good old skincare ritual... sometimes I wish I had a bit more of an 'instant fix'. Last month I headed to London with my lovely blogging buddy Sophia for the Cosmo Blog Awards and as part of our day we treated ourselves to a Charlotte Tilbury Makeover (and a few products too) One of the real standout products for me was the Goddess Skin Clay Mask, which was used to prep my skin for my makeover. I've been using this gorgeous mask two times a week and I couldn't wait to write this review up for you lovelies. I hope you enjoy this post and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. You can also use my social media icons to the right hand side if you would like to get in contact a little quicker!

The Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask is formulated to leave you with moisturised, dewy and glowing skin, whilst also tightening your pores and clearing imperfections. The mask is based on an ancient Mediterranean beauty recipe, which combines nutrient-rich Spanish clay with the addition of Sweet Almond Oil, which has fantastic nourishing properties. Other key ingredients include Rosehip Oil, Frangipani Flower Extract and BioNymph Peptide Complex, which boosts collagen production and visibly improves elasticity.

Prior to my makeover, my skin was definitely suffering due to a crazy busy week and I was noticing redness and also a few key signs of dehydration, such as a loss of radiance. On application the mask felt thick, but smooth and very luxurious. A lot of clay masks have a traditional chalky texture and tend to dry quite hard (which I don't mind) but this mask felt very different to any I had tried before. After about 10 minutes my makeup artist took the mask off and the results were seriously impressive. My skin was noticeably more plump and my redness had calmed down so much, which made me feel instantly more confident! I obviously made the purchase and the results have been just as good at home. My skin is left noticeably plump, as well as my pores looking a lot smaller (woohoo)

If you're a fan of Frangipani then you will love this mask, as for me Frangipani is the make scent that subtly comes through. I tend to use this mask as more of an instant fix, so when I know I have an important day or before and evening out! It really is the most perfect mask for leaving your skin perfectly pampered and it also leaves your skin in great condition for make-up application. 
Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask Review
Overall
If you're craving baby smooth skin then this could be the mask for you! It's expensive at £45.00, but personally the instant results make it very impressive. It's so disheartening when you spend that kind of money on a product that doesn't perform, but the Goddess Skin Clay Mask really does deliver exactly what it says on the tube. I have to admit I've recently tried a few other bits from the CT skincare range and I've found them to be nice, but way to thick for my skin to handle and would definitely be suited to dry/mature skin types. If you're looking to dabble in CT skincare, my recommendation would 100% be this mask! 

I would love to hear your thoughts - Have you tried anything from the Charlotte Tilbury Skincare Line?

Taje Beauty Clinic - Lava Shell Massage Review ❤

Hello My Lovelies!
Hope you're all keeping well? I'm actually feeling pretty impressed, as this is my second post of the day, which is something I'm not able to do very often! Tonight I'm bringing you a review of one of my favorite Beauty Clinics based in Newport, South Wales and I've been super excited to get this post written up for you lovelies. I've definitely been feeling the pressure the past few weeks between a hectic work schedule, travel and of course making time for my family and blog! As much as I love being a busy bee, I think that having a bit of 'Me time' every now and then is one of the most important things to keep you feeling like yourself during times of stress. I love collaborating with local businesses that I truly believe in, So I hope you will all enjoy today's review on an absolutely beautiful Lava Shells treatment which I was lucky to have last week at the Taje Beauty Clinic Don't forget to leave your links/questions in the comments section below. You can also use my social media icons to the right hand side if you would like to get in touch with me a little quicker.
For my readers who may not know, The Taje Beauty Clinic is a multi-award winning beauty clinic based in Newport - South Wales. The Clinic prides itself on innovative technology and pioneering beauty treatments that are undertaken by a friendly team of highly trained, expert staff with years of industry experience. 

I must admit that when I'm feeling a little stressed or when I just don't feel like myself, I tend to splurge on beauty and skincare treats, which is more of a temporary high and a quick way to perk myself back up! However, the past few months I've been trying to book in for more treatments, as the results are much longer lasting and it definitely gives you something to look forward too. Taje has always been my favourite Beauty Clinic and I have visited for many years along with my sister, so I was super excited to collaborate with them. I decided to opt for the Lava Shell Massage which is a firm favourite with celebrities and has been described as the 'New Hot Stones' by Vogue Magazine.

On arrival at Taje I was warmly greeted by Nicola on reception and was soon taken upstairs to sit in their relaxation area just before I was due to be taken into my treatment room by the lovely Katie, who was my therapist for the Lava Shell Massage. A Lava Shell massage is a heat treatment that uses Tiger clam shells that have been harvested in the Philippines and are recycled for very good use within the 'Lava Shell Massage. The heat is produced by a lava shell sachet, which is placed within the shell, which releases a beautiful heat throughout the treatment itself.

After taking some time to relax I was taken into the room and was given plenty of time to change and get myself comfortable before the treatment started. I felt very comfortable with Katie and I can hand on my heart say that her pressure was the best I have ever felt in a massage, she was fantastic! The treatment started with application of a massage oil and shortly after Katie used the calming heat of the Lava Shells to press onto the key points of concern, which I had mentioned prior to the treatment. The massage itself was simply amazing. I found the Lava Shell Massage to be a lot smoother and more enjoyable than traditional hot stones (which I still do enjoy) The shells also keep their heat far better than stones, which means that the treatment is more seamless and relaxing.

The Lava Shells massage is hugely enjoyable and suitable for anyone with tense muscles and will actively help to boost circulation, soothe aches, reduce swelling and most importantly relax you! If you're based in South Wales (or near) I would 100% recommend checking out The Taje Beauty Clinic, who are also an expert Dermologica clinic - A status which makes Taje one  of the highest trained skin care professionals in the country. Not only are Taje true professionals, but they are also super lovely, and make sure your treatment and visit to the clinic is as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. 
I hope you've enjoyed this review lovelies - Have you ever had a Lava Shell Massage before? If so make sure you share your experiences below :) 

Check out Taje Beauty Clinic for more information on their services and team! 

Lots of Love

Tried and Tested - Skincare Gift Guide ❤

Skincare Gift Guide
Hi Lovelies!
I've got "It's starting to look a lot like Christmas" stuck in my head, so I thought why not bring you my third and final Festive Gift Guide! I started off with 'Give The Gift of Relaxation' followed by my 'Christmas Candle Gift Guide' and finally I'm here with my Tried and Tested Skincare Gift Guide. All of my guides this year have featured products that I have personally used and recommend, so I hope that has been useful for you lovelies? I'm definitely a skincare Junkie, so I thought I would go ahead and share my recommendations with you starting from just £9.50. I hope you enjoy this post and would love to hear from you in the comments section below. 

With one sold every 28 seconds throughout the world the NUXE Reve De Miel Lip Balm has been a huge success in the beauty world! I personally can't get enough of this particular lip balm and it's the only lip balm that has truly repaired my dry and chapped lips. It's super luxurious texture and fantastic formula would make it a great little stocking filler, or maybe a gift for your best friend?
I'm just coming to the end of my second pot of this truly amazing cleanser and I thought that this little Emma Hardie Decoration was just the cutest little gift, which would be suitable for someone new to the brand or even as a dinky travel size version! I've also had the 15ml version and it lasted me ages! plus with this gift you even get a EH cloth, which are also really good. 
Recently reviewed on my blog and full of natural flavonoids this fabulous face mask would make a unique treat for any skincare Junkie. This face mask is truly good enough to eat and each batch is handmade to order to capture the potency of the botanical actives. 
The 'Make A Difference' range from Origins has always been my favourite and for just £45 you get a whole skincare regime, which will be sure to banish dry and uncomfortable skin today. I feel like this range is really universal and can be used on the majority of skin types, plus you get a lovely beauty travel case - and I know us beauty lovers all love a good old beauty bag ;)
This is definitely a luxury product with a luxury price tag, but if you know a skincare junkie or someone looking to invest in skincare the Sunday Riley Blue Moon Cleansing Balm is a good place to start. I've actually reviewed it here and I'm completely in love! It's Blue which is just amazing, it smells like Chocolate Orange and it can double up as a luxury face mask! It's a real treat.
Last but certainly not least we have the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair II, which has definitely become a cult favourite. I use this at least four times a week and I honestly believe its the key player in keeping my skin clear and in good condition. It can be used in the day, night and it also can also be mixed into your foundation to give you a continual hydration boost throughout the day. This is definitely what I would class as a miracle worker and a good night sleep in a bottle - What's not to love?

I hope you enjoyed this post my loves! - Have a great week

Lots of Love

The Look Fantastic Beauty Box - Christmas Edition No1 ❤

The Look Fantastic Beauty Box
"i was super excited to see that there was a beautiful look fantastic beauty box in our cosmo goody bags"

Hello My Lovelies!
I hope you're all doing fantastically well? I must admit I'm starting to feel super excited for Christmas and it's really nice, as sometimes I can get a little worked up around this time of year. It seems like ages ago since I attended the Cosmo Blog Awards with Sophia, but honestly speaking it was one of the best experiences I have ever had! I'm the first to admit I'm pretty shy and sometimes will turn down fantastic opportunities, purely because I'm scared of the unknown. Anyhoo! I'm here today with my thoughts on the Look Fantastic Christmas Beauty Box, which was very kindly put in our Cosmo goody bags! The past two months I've been lucky to try a few beauty boxes out, but previous to that I had never actually tried one believe it or not! I've had a little peek inside the box and have tried a few bits out, so I thought it would be a good chance to do an initial thoughts kinda post on the blog! I hope you enjoy and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. Don't forget to use my social media icons if you would like to get in contact a little quicker!
The Look Fantastic Beauty Box
The Elemis Hydra-Balance Day Cream is an ultra-light, anti-oxidant rich day cream that provides continuous hydration, leaving skin perfectly hydrated, balanced and supple. I am actually coming to the end of this moisturiser, so as you can imagine I was super excited to see this in the Look Fantastic Box. It has a beautiful cream-gel texture and sits perfectly under my makeup on a daily basis. 

Unlike the Elemis moisturiser this Murad Exfoliating Cleanser was a brand new product to me. I must admit I am pretty picky with exfoliators and even though I do use them, I sometimes struggle to enjoy them! The Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser uses Salicylic, Lactic and Glycolic Acids to provide clarity and brightness, as well as improving cell-turnover. The cleanser also uses Jojoba Beads to gently polish, exfoliate and hydrate the skin. Since receiving the box I have used this product a few times and it’s actually become my favourite product from the box itself! I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth and nonabrasive this exfoliator is!

I do love a good Balance Me product and find the general quality of their products amazing! I was super happy to see the Balance Me Radiance Face Mask, which uses skin-brightening Fruit Acid Complex, Ground Walnut and Purifying Kaolin Clay to draw out impurities and re balance the skin. I’ve only used this product once, so It’ too soon to properly comment, but I enjoyed its spa like scent and exfoliating texture!

Percy and Reed Volumising No Oil Oil
I must admit I was pretty excited to see this Percy and Reed product! I've heard so many amazing things about Percy and Reed and thought this would be a great way to see if their products were for me! Even though I don't have fine hair I do get oily at the roots, which can sometimes take away my volume at the roots. The Volumising No Oil Oil is describe as being a 'little lifesaver' containing violet extract and pro vitamin B5, which are both fantastic for adding volume, whilst nourishing and repairing the hair too! I've only tried this once, but I have to admit I was extremely impressed and will 100% be writing a review in the near future!

Monu Firming Moisturiser
The Monus Firming Moisturiser has a host of amazing ingredients including, Marine Collagen, Neroli, Lavender and Coconut oil just to name a few. I've used this two times and I have to admit I quite liked it, even though initially I wasn't sure how I would get along with it! I definitely want to try this out and try and work it into my skincare routine, as I think it may be more beneficial than I realise. Your skin actually starts ageing at around 19, so at 23 I'm definitely looking at products to help prolong the current condition of my skin!

NUXE Reve De Miel Hand and Nail Cream
I was excited to see a NUXE product in the box, as I adore their Reve De Miel Lip Blam. This Hand and Nail Cream is described as being a repairing, anti-ageing and nourishing Hand Cream. It's formula has been tested in extremely cold conditions in Canada with a result of 96% saying that the formula improved the overall condition of the hands.

Look Good Feel Better Eye Shading Brush
Look Good Feel Better are the only international cancer support charity providing support for people struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment. Each brush is precision cut and is hand-made using super soft taklon bristles, which make them allergy free. I don't tend to do much eye makeup, as I feel like it doesn't really suit me! However, I thought why not give it a whirl and I've actually really enjoyed using this the past week. It's definitely a lovely brush and picks up product really well - so a huge thumbs up from me and of course it's for a great cause too!
Overall
I was super grateful to receive The Look Fantastic Beauty Box, which I believe is called 'Christmas Box 1' - My favourite products are definitely the Murad Cleanser and the Percy and Reed No oil oil. Even the products which I wasn't 100% sure would be for me have turned out to be fantastic too, and I would definitely recommend checking out the latest Look Fantastic Box

I hope you've enjoyed this review and I would love to hear your thoughts on this box in the comments below. 

Lots of Love
