Lookfantastic beauty box

Hi everyone, is been a long time since I have wrote anything, I guess school holidays and generally being busy trying to occupied my 5 year old didn’t give me the opportunity to do so. But I am back now and hope that you are all well and having a fantastic summer so far ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today I would like to talk about Lookfantastic beauty subscription box which I recently renewed, as I wasn’t sure if I want to keep it or not, in the end I thought it is a great value for money, I mean ยฃ15 for 6 beauty products is quite good don’t you agree?

So the box itself always looks very pretty, every month has different theme which means you will never get bored with the same thing over and over again lol In every monthly box you get free Elle magazine so that is money saving bonus straight from the start.

To the content, in August box I’ve received 6 products :

INC – long lasting and hydrating lip gloss, my shade is light brown.

MIO- Boob Tube it’s a moisturiser for dรฉcolletรฉ and breast ๐Ÿ™Š

ERNO LASZLO – toner to the dry skin

BLINK BROW BAR – mini brow mascara

MOLTON BROWN – bath and shower gel

BALANCE ME – pure skin wash.

All of these products listed above are travel sizes, which is great if you want to try new things or you travelling, but most of the time you will get at least 2 or 3 full size products, every month is different.

If you like to give it a go and subscribe to the “lookfantastic” box I have a discount code which can be used with your first order MARIOLA-R39 just use this code at the checkout and the amount will be taken off your bill.

I’ll be back soon with more details on all of those items, just need to get my hands on it ๐Ÿ˜‰

SEE YOU SOON ๐Ÿ’‹

Lime and avocado salsa ๐Ÿ˜

Summer is very hot this year and I am enjoying fresh salads and salsas so much. One of my favourites is this super simple Lime and avocado salsa it goes perfectly well with the fish or chicken.

1 ripe avocado, diced

1 cucumber finally chopped

1/2 small red onion , finally chopped

2 red chillies, seeded and finally chopped

Handful of coriander leaves

2 tablespoons of lime juice

4 tablespoons of olive oil

1 lime

Put the avocado in the bowl with cucumber, onion , chilli , coriander,lime juice and olive oil .

Using a sharp knife cut the top of the base off the lime sit lime on the chopping board and run the knife down all sides , removing the skin and pith .Run the knife between the membranes to release the lime segments, then finally chopp them and gently stir them into the salsa be careful not too mash the avocado. Enjoy

MUDMASKY โ€“ Sleep Repair Renewal Nourishing Mask

If you are looking for a Face Mask that adapts to your skintype on different zones, this is the one for You ๐Ÿ˜‰

Parabens free using only premium natural ingredients from around the world suitable for any skin type.

I have received this mask in March Glossybox and have been using ever since.

It has such a nice light and though intensely hydrating texture. I love to put it on before going to bed. It does not stick a bit, what I highly appreciate. It is so easy to treat your skin with this mask and your face will feel smooth energised looking refreshed the next day, plus reduces a dark circles which is my all time nightmare.

Apply a thin layer just few minutes before bedtime. Leave it on to work during the night , remove it with the warm water , dry your skin with a clean cloth , preferably do not use make-up (this is going to be very hard for some of us , but it’s worth trying ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Use it every night before bedtime for best results.

If you’re interested in buying regular size the cost is ยฃ60 for 60 ml

Omorowicza- Balancing Cream

Omorowicza Cosmetics are award winning skincare brand from Hungary, it was officially launched in 2006 and it has been producing wonderful skincare products ever since. Today the Omorowicza range contains almost fifty products comprising four collections.

Founders Margaret and Stephen made a decision to create skincare which replicates the effects of the healing waters.

Promised Results are that at first touch skin is soothed, moisturized and visibly rejuvenated. Over time collagen and elastin production is boosted, vital moisture is locked in , surface damage is repaired and skin is strengthened. With daily use this will lead to a complexion that is truly heald, visibly younger looking and illuminated from within.

My thoughts on the product .

The packaging is quite simple I have a 30ml bottle but I know that you can get bigger size of 50ml , applicator is in the form of pump that makes it super easy to apply.

The product itself is a very light and absorbes very quickly, very light fragrance of pineapple and rosemary gives very relaxing effect. My skin feels very hydrated and fresh. I would absolutely recommend Omorowicza balancing cream to ladies with oily and combination skin.

This beauty comes at the price of ยฃ85

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll be back soon๐ŸŒธ

CAUDALIE -Skin SOS

I’ve been fighting with my dry, dehydrated skin for the last few weeks (well, always, but more lately) and was at my wit’s end because I could barely wear foundation – it would cake, show my fine lines, and generally sap all moisture out of my skin . But lucky me , I received an offer from Glamour Beauty Club if I would like to try and review this serum . Of course I said yes please , who wouldn’t . So I got a delivery about 7 days later yay .

Pros of this Caudalie serum:
* Does feel hydrating and dethirsting
* Sinks in instantly
* Skin is left calm, plump and pampered
* Light non sticky texture
* No skin irritation or breakouts
* Nice scent
* Convenient packaging

Cons:
* Price
* Might be too heavily fragranced for some
* The hydrating effect doesn’t last all day

Overall I’m pleased with SOS serum and apply it every morning before my moisturiser but my favourite use of it is as a primer before heavier coverage matte foundations. They apply like a dream and the finish is much more natural without any added greasiness, especially when combined with a light spritz of Caudalie Eau de Raisin as a finishing touch. I would absolutely recommend this serum to anyone who like to boost skin hydration .

It is little bit pricey at ยฃ29 but definitely worth trying . I know I will be making purchase after my complementary tube runs out .

MeMe- Clay carbonated bubble mask

Recently I have been hearing a lot about carbonated face masks and I really wanted to try it, if it really works.

I had a big dilemma which one to buy as is that many different types of it and reviews are always split into good and bad of course, so I just went with my gut feeling and made a purchase trough Amazon UK ๐Ÿ˜†

The carbonated bubble clay mask has a cute packaging and outside the packaging, there is a step by step instructions and an illustration on how to use the clay mask itself so it is less hassle. It comes with a white color container and a cute angel picture. when i opened it, the color of the mask dark grey ish , with consistency of sticky slightly creamy substance which is quite easy to apply . When I use it, I spread it over my face except eye and lips area . Clay mask is cool on my face with the tingling sensation ,I can feel it working after just couple of minutes, the bubbles beginning to appear and i can feel they penetrating my skin , I usually leave it on for around 15 than just clean my skin with a warm water . After cleansing, my face feels smooth and soft as well as brightened . I am very pleased with my purchase and I would happily recommend this face mask, It makes me feel truly pampered for the price of ยฃ8.99

Hopefully my short review will be helpful for you guys.

Have lovely day โค

Herbal Essences beautiful compositions

I always loved Herbal Essences haircare, simply because they made my hair look great and fragrance of them is just to die for. When I found out that Savvy circle is launching a Herbal Essences project I couldn’t be more exited , as it is a whole new collection . Well I was very pleased that I have made it into the team, and pretty much few days after receiving an email courier knocked on my door. As you can see on the picture above I received nice set of -Cucumber and green tea shampoo and conditioner , which is very light on my hair, after usage my hair feel very soft and manageable and clean feeling lasts all day , fragrance is very fresh and sweet.

Second set- Argan oil again light texture fantastic fragrance but buy the end of the day I feel like my hair are getting little bit greasy, not sure if this is set for me as even though I do colour my hair they’re not very damaged or very dry, personally think that this set would be suitable for persons with dry and damaged hair.

Last but not least White strawberry and sweet mint I think this set is my favourite out of three as my hair are very shiny, soft and feeling strong at the same time not mentioned again how good they smell.

I am happy to say that I would definitely recommend Herbal Essences new “bio renew ” collection not just because they smell great but you can feel the difference on your hair , and also happy that they don’t contain any gluten- silicones, and can be used on coloured hair without any restrictions .

All I can say is that give it a go you will not be disappointed.

Lots of love
