    Uber Sonic – Toothbrush Review

    Uber Sonic aren’t a brand I’d ever heard of before. Let’s face it though, unless it’s made by Colgate or Braun, I’m not going to know of any other electric toothbrush makes as they’re not constantly shoved in your face. Still, I jumped at the chance to give this a go as I actually still lived in the dark ages and had a manual toothbrush! Uber Sonic promote themselves as the iPhone of the toothbrush world as the body is made from lightweight brushed aluminium, the same as the phones. It looks really modern and is indeed lightweight and comfortable to hold. The interchangeable plastic heads are a little wider…

    July 18 Glossybox Review

    It’s that time again, another Glossybox review! We’re now over halfway through the year, seriously, where has time gone?? We’ve had one of the hottest July’s on record and it has been glorious! But because of this, I have decided I’m going to go live in the sea and become a mermaid… This month’s Glossybox will help me do just that! The Beach theme for this month’s box is spot on! The box itself is absolutely beautiful with its ocean colours and reflective water look. Unfortunately my box was a little worse for wear in one corner but I think I managed to disguise it for photos. The contents this…

    Ecosoapia – Natural Soap Review

    I’m really loving natural products at the moment. I’ve tried body creams and the loveliest shampoo and conditioner combo which you can read about HERE, among other things. It’s just nice to use products that don’t contain any nasty ingredients that you can’t read the names of! It’s better for your skin and for the environment. I was sent a bottle of Ecosoapia to try and the first thing you notice about it is the label. Just WOW! It was designed by David Smith who is regarded as the best calligrapher in the world and you can see why! The detail that has gone into the design is just incredible…

    Homemade Salt Scrub

    I was lucky enough to be gifted the most amazing Himalayan Pink salt at the end of last month from Monsoon Season. I’ve been using it loads in my cooking and I’m absolutely in love with it! It brings out the flavours of my dishes so well just from the smallest pinch. I actually called it “the saltiest salt I’ve ever had”. Well last night I decided to try out one of its other uses and make a Salt Scrub. I never realised how easy they are to make and I actually had the ingredients lying around the house! All you need is: A small jar with a lid 6…

    June 2018 Glossybox Review

    I decided not to do a reveal this month as I have quite a few beauty products to post about as it is and I am struggling to find the time to write up posts. It hasn’t taken me long to make way through the products though so here’s my review for this month! For anyone who doesn’t know about Glossybox, it’s a monthly subscription box that comes through the post and contains 5 different beauty products. It’s a great way of trying things you wouldn’t necessarily buy yourself and it’s only £10. We have the pink box again this month which is as beautiful as ever. This colour just…

    E’lifexir – The Miracle Cream To Solve All Our Body Woes?

    I’m a bit of a sceptic when it comes to beauty products making bold claims as I’ve not had the greatest experiences in the past: “Gradual Tan = look like you’ve dragged a teabag down your limbs!” These creams and gels don’t actually claim to be miracle workers but with name like “Flat Tummy” and “Body Lift” I know people would get excited and expect them to be! E’lifexir promote themselves as the “Next Generation of Natural Body Care Products” with 99% of their ingredients being totally natural. They are vegan friendly and contain no nasties, are also hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types. I was asked which of…

    Naturally Beautiful Haircare

    When I think about what shampoos and conditioners contain I just imagine a lot of chemical sounding ingredients that I can’t pronounce. I have real issues with my hair and scalp and finding a product that works for me is quite hard. I have an itchy scalp, greasy roots and dry ends so a real combination! Shampoos can really irritate my scalp but I need something that actually cleans my hair. In other words, I hate finding shampoos! When I got offered the chance to try natural products, I’ve got to admit, I was a little sceptical but I’ll try anything once so requested the Argan and Amla set. I…

Well, each month Glossybox offers the chance to answer survey questions on the products. You do it on their website and…
