August Libbie Club

The August Libbie Club has arrived and once again it is absolutely amazing, just like both the June and July boxes.  Latest in Beauty (LIB) recently launched The Libbie Club which is described as being a community of influential beauty fans who are rewarded for reviewing, sharing and referring beauty products.

Each month members of The Libbie Club are sent a free of charge box of full sized beauty products to try out, you then write your honest reviews about each product on their site and if anyone makes a purchase via any of your recommendations, you will then be sent another box the next month to review again. However, with each product comes an offer, more of which you can read about below.

Inside this months box we have the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser with cloth. Nestled inside this really beautiful velvet bag is a 30ml tube of cleanser and a cloth. Described as being an intelligent, aromatic, creamy infusion glides on to the skin and lifts off all impurities and make- up. The accompanying antibacterial bamboo muslin cloth helps to buff away dead skin cells and make-up whilst helping to stimulate the skin’s natural renewal process. 

I have really enjoyed using this cleanser, it is my first product from the brand and I am really impressed with it. There is nothing better than coming home and removing the day from your face (as I put it) and this cleanser is exactly as it describes iself, it is creamy and it does melt everything off your face but what it negates to mention is how amazing it also smells! Scent for me is quite important, if I don't like the smell of something chances are it won't get used straightaway. But this cleanser being fragranced with an uplifting essential oil blend of Eucalyptus, Chamomile, Rosemary and Bergamot is simply delightful.

Now you don't have to take my word for it, you can try it yourself with the fantastic offer from this months Libbie Club which gives you a full sized Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser plus free travel size tube worth £8.50 all for £34 right here.

The next item in the box is from Lola and it is a nail polish in a beautiful shade of blue called Bluebell. The shade itself is perfect for the spring and summer months and is one that flatters all skintones.  I like the chunkiness of the nail polish lid because it makes it easy to hold on to when using to pain your nails.

The offer on this nail polish from the Libbie Club is a good old fashioned BOGOF and for £8 you get two nail polishes and you can find that offer right here.

The final product in the box is the Therapie Roques O’Neil Aura Spray. Now this I was excited about because I am a huge fan of the Himalayan Detox Salts which I reviewed here. The Aura Spray is aromatherapeutic spritz that refreshes whenever you're tired, frazzled, overworked or in one of those sluggish moods and need a bit of a wake up. 

I have my spray on my desk at work because not only does it help to keep my skin feeling hydrated throughout the day but it does give that nudge mid afternoon when I am feeling a tad sleepy at my desk.  It is designed to be spritzed onto the face and whilst it doesn't leave your face soaking wet, nor does it make your make up run, it does refresh and hydrate not to mention smell absolutely wonderful of roses and citrus.

If this sounds like a product you would love to try (and I urge you to because it is amazing) then the offer with this months Libbie Club is a discount of 20% the Aura Spray which you can find here.

I have absolutely loved this box yet again, it is the third one I have reviewed and I am yet to feel let down by the contents which I feel offer a great mixture of products.

What do you think to the August Box?

LOLA IT Girl Range

LOLA is an exciting New British designed make up brand. Created by professional make-up artists, LOLA offers a wide range of colours, High quality textures and professional artistry tools. LOLA is retailed exclusively at Marks & Spencer.

To date, the only products I have ever owned from LOLA was a miniature kabuki Brush which I got in a beauty box and it happens to be pretty fantastic and one which resides in my everyday work make-up bag and a finishing brush which came in a You Beauty Discovery Box.  So when I was offered the chance to try out some of the make up from the range, I jumped at the chance.

The products found in the IT girl range are inspired from three of the periods (60s and 79s) most iconic IT Girls - Edie Sedgwick, Debbie Harry, Angie & David Bowie.  The range features Lip Gloss, 6 eyeshadows, Automatic pencil, Eye Pencil, an intense lipstick shade, Matte Lipstick, 3 nail polishes.  I have some of the products** from across the three looks - Icon, Factory Girl and Studio 54 which are Eyeshadow in Satinado which is a dusty pink shade, a eye pencil in gold dust and a lip gloss in 009 which is Hot Pink.

The first thing I noticed about each of these products is how lovely they look within their packing, the white writing on a black background looks very classy to me and really standing out.  Then the actual product inside is just amazing. 

Both pinks shades suit most skin tones, even mine which is very pale and the lip gloss and eyeshadow can be used to give a light smattering of colour or built up to give a really edgy shade, depending on your preference. 

Have you ever tried a product from Lola?

The BBB The Dream Box

When I heard about The Dream Box from Jane, a.k.a The British Beauty Blogger, I knew I was going to buy it.  The last one, which you can see HERE was so fabulous and such good value for money, I was gutted to have missed the first.

Anyway, this collaboration has been done with Latest in Beauty and 15 products have been selected with a value of over £100 and it is literally jammed packed full.  I ordered mine and it arrived within 2 days which is amazingly quick and here are my contents. The Dream box cost £19.95 including P&P.

So in my box I got:

Bourjois Cream Blush in 03 which is called Rose Tender, I am looking forward to trying this properly rather than just swatching it like I do everytime I go into Boots.  RRP £6.99

Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint Cleansing Water - This is the product that really intrigued me and one I cannot wait to use.  It says it is a 3-in-1 Cleansing Water which dissolves make-up, cleanses and tones the skin. I am a new fan to this brand and love the fact they donate some of their profits to help support British Bees.

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water - A product I cannot rave about enough and have reviewed HERE.  This is 50ml size can and is perfect for putting in your handbag.

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Kisses - I have never used a Charlotte Tilbury product, though I have read a lot about them on other peoples blogs.  These little envelopes include a lipstick kiss and I am quite taken with the whole idea, they are a bit like a perfume sample, but in lipstick form and it gives you the chance to try it before you buy it in many respects, how clever!!  My samples are called 'So Marilyn'.

Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream - Everyone needs a decent foot cream, even people like me who hate feet!  This cream is a soothing foot cream which uses lemon and eucalyptus to moisturise and soothe.

Essie Nail Polish - Who doesn't love an Essie Nail Polish?  There was no insight as to which shade anyone would get and I was delighted with the one I got which is a very lovely pink called 'Style Hunter', one I haven't got and one I am pleased to add to my collection.

Kniepp Herbal Bath - I got the Mandarin scented one and I have already started using it and can already tell you that it is fantastic and it definitely does help with de-stressing after what has been a frantic few weeks for me.

Janjira Hand Wash - Not a brand I have ever come across though I am pleased I have because this Argan Oil version that was in my box smells amazing and given its size, is really handy for using in hand luggage for weekends away.

Roger and Gallet Gingembre Rouge which I absolutely love the scent of.  It is one of those scents which is perfect for a summer day as it includes both mandarin and pomegranate as well as candied ginger and definitely something I would purchase.

L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Lotion - This is a softening lotion for the skin which is to be used after cleasing but before moisturising and it is said to leave your skin feeling softer and looking brighter.  Not somethign I have ever used but looking forward to doing so.

BENEFIT it's potent Eye Cream - I have had my eye on this for a while now, I have read quite a lot of reviews about it, some good, some bad and quite a few indifferent, so I wanted to see what it was like for myself.  It contains a peptide complex that helps to restore elasticity and firmess around the eyes as well as tackling those dark circles

Ren Satin BB Cream - I love Ren products and I love BB Creams, so hopefully the two things combined will give me a fabulous product.  This is a silicone free formula which is said to leave a satin finish and it also contains anti-ageing ingredients as well as SPF15.

Lola Kabuki Brush - Chuffed to have this in my box as I cannot find the one I had and I can't stand applying bronzer or blush with anything other than a Kabuki brush.  This one is small enough to fit into my make-up to carry around on a day to day basis and the bristles are really lovely and soft.

Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara - This product is one of those that seems to be being talked about everywhere and I cannot wait to try it.  I love mascara, if I had to choose one make-up item I wouldn't leave the house without, it would be mascara.  This one is said to be collagen infused to give you thick, dark lashes and it is also paraben free!

The final item comes from Make-up Revolution, yes you have all heard of them and probably own most of the products currently available and I have to admit, my wishlist grows by the day.  This is the first item I have owned from Make-up Revolution and it is called the 'Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow Palette - Sticks and Stones'. This palette has 14 super intense shades with 2 eyebrow powders and probably wouldn't have been the palette I would have chosen because I tend to favour neutral shades because I find them much easier to work with and I feel more comfortable wearing them.

Did you get the box? If so link me in the comments below so I can see what you got inside your box.
