FOREO LUNA MINI: UNBOXING

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 3 views


The Foreo Luna Mini, this little thing of beauty. If you have never heard of this little device before, then sit tight, relax and prepare to be amazed. 
After being sold worldwide for nearly two years or so now, I finally got my hands on this little bad boy. Facial cleansing tools especially brushes have are now a must for all skincare conscious people. Most cleansing brushes promises to help unclog pores, brighten our skin, and help us achieve our skin goals. 
 
I am very picky when it comes to what I put on my face because like many of you I don’t want to ruin my ok face with harsh tools or chemicals and worsen my skin issues.  I had been looking at the Clarisonic range, but I think it’s similar to my Magnitone. I am probably wrong and the thought of having another beauty tool with its brush head that needs constant changing just seems pointless and, please do correct me if am wrong!
Compared to others in this category I feel that the Foreo Luna is very different which was why I decided to give it a try. 
What makes this so different from the rest? 
At Foreo, they aim to provide a unique, pioneering and iconic products with hygiene and wellbeing at its core; designed to help you feel naturally beautiful and healthy. The Luna Mini is the first of its kind to make use of unique nonporous silicone brush that is easiest to wash and more hygenic than standard silicone cleansing brushes. After use, all one needs to do is just rinse and it will be 35x more hygienic than other cleansing brushes. The idea of anyone cleansing their face with a bacteria-ridden brush makes me shudder.
This product comes with two manuals; one for a quick guide and the other gives a more in-depth step by step guide on how to use this little beauty. 
 It also comes with an insurance card and a USB charger for the device.
How much does it costs?
It costs £99 which is not as expensive as the Clarisonic or as purse friendly as the Magnitone Lucid. However, it’s still not the cheapest thing in the world. 
 I ordered the Luna Mini Save The Sea Special Edition with the net profits would go to Foreo’s Board of Ocean Conservation charity partners. Although, this device comes in five different colours, if you’re not a sea turtle pal.

 There’s a little promotion Foreo have going this summer—–> check out their website here.

As you can probably tell, I am super excited to try this out. I hope I am not disappointed.

June 2015 Birchbox- ‘Step outside’ with French Sole

By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 1 views


Birchbox is back to add a French inspiration to our lives. This month’s box is in partnership with French Sole (well know for their ballet flats). As part of the collaboration they had three exclusive beautiful box designs to choose from Floral Daze, From Paris With Love and Pick N Mix…guess which one I chose! Naturally From Paris With Love because I am a Parisian wannabe and a sucker for stripes.
As part of the packaged, iare given a nylon shoe bag with the same beautiful stripey pattern as the box, so it should be very useful and be easy to clean. The items are centred around the idea of making the most out of the beautiful sunny weather. 
I have received Beauty Protector products before and they are superb and this product didn’t disappoint. It has been very useful for detangling my natural hair which can be a pain, but this seems to help reduce the headache plus it smells very sweet, free from paraben, sulfate, helps to minimise frizz and it’s all vegan baby. Plus it protects against UV rays and heat. 
Yet another new welcomed sample. This lip balm is nourishing and leaves a pinkish at tint to the lips which I find very flattering. It applies very smoothly and can fit comfortably in the handbag or backpack and or makeup bag.
This lotion is formulated to help reduce lines and wrinkles thanks to its complex formula of Hyaluronans and Phycocolloids. Plus it will help make your skin look plump and lifted over continual use. I honestly haven’t used it because I do not have any lines or wrinkles and neither does my mother, so it goes in the bin.
I was really, very excited to try this out. It reminded me of the young and carefree kids magazine days. This tattoo is very easy to apply and remove; just follow the instructions it comes with and you’re set. To use, cut the one you want, remove plastic and place a clean skin, rub along the paper with a damp fabric and eh presto. Tried it and liked it so much, I have worn it a couple of times.
I have never received a Cowshed body lotion before and I must say this cream is very nice. Packed with beautiful smelling Moroccan rose, French Lavender and Madagascar Ylang Ylang, it smells absolutely gorgeous and leaves your skin very soft and moisturised. This body lotion is free from parabens,  sulfate, mineral oils but does contain fragrance which you might be sensitive to…so please do more research before buying.
Perfume samples are some of the things I love about my beauty boxes. I was very excited to try this brand new discovery out; this is such an unusual intoxicating smell. I typically go for very feminine fragrances and I was very surprised to have liked this. I found it to be very long lasting, a bit musky but very pleasant and sophisticated; something that should be worn with your Sunday best!!
This month’s box has been very useful with a mix of hair, beauty and skincare samples for £12 I am a happy bunny. Maybe one day I will splurge out on a pair of matching stripey French Sole to go with the bag! My biggest surprise was how much I loved the temporary tattoos and I was brave enough to wear it outside…even mum liked it which is just a miracle in itself!!
I hope you are enjoying this month’s box and the lovely sunny weather lately .

Welcome the Summer with some amazing pieces

Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro One Palette

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 0 views

Hello, everyone! Up for review, today is the Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro One Palette. I discovered this brand browsingYouTube and Instagram.
Like all Makeup Revolution Palette, this comes in a shiny black plastic case; personally this is not an issue as it looks good enough for the price and it serves its purpose.  It comes with a large mirror and a plastic cover with the shades names on. The mirror can be very useful when travelling or out camping or find yourself with a mirror.


 L-R; Pitch, Afflicted, Drama, Fade, Enigma, Must, Luna, Ghost.
L-R; Player, Addicted, Stage, Too Grey, Breathe, Getter, Dawn, Need
This palette is beautiful with many lovely neutral shades. Some shades are more pigmented than others; as you can see from my swatches. I guess this is to be expected with any palette. The quality could be improved if I applied more and if used wet.


I am very impressed and surprised with the palette. For £7 palette, you get 16 relatively pigmented shadows which I personally feel is pretty darn good! You really cannot go wrong with this palette!! There’s a shade for everything.
What do you think? Yay or Nay? Please leave your thoughts and comments below.

Magnitone Lucid Limited Edition – Pixie Lott Unboxing

By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 2 views


About three weeks ago, I received a lovely package which contained my Magnitone Lucid daily cleansing and exfoliation brush. When I ordered this product, it took about three days for it to get to me considering I paid nothing for postage and packaging. 

For those of you who haven’t heard about Magnitone before. They are a UK based company who focus on providing skincare tools which claim to give you a softer, brighter and clearer skin in just 7 days.
 
 I have been wanting to try this brand for ages and I mentioned them back in this post here! I opted for the Pixie Lott Limited edition. Although, they also come in blue, yellow, aqua green, it was a very hard choice but what can I say…. I love pink 🙂

 

The packaging is superb and the items in the box are well protected in the plastic casing, which one can always use to store it when moving. For now it is thoroughly being used daily so I won’t be storing it anytime soon.
One of the best things about this product is that it comes with an adaptable charger so you can take it on your travels or if you live overseas you can also use it. 
And the charger is magnetic which I think is so cool. It also comes with a protective cap and it is fully waterproof so for those who always seems to be in a rush, you can use it in the bath or the shower.
The brush head is powered by “active electromagnetic technology” and an “active clean brush head with spray guard bristles” which helps to unclog pores and sweep away dry, dead skin cells. The Lucid has two modes sensitive and deep clean. The deep clean mode for a more powerful clean and sensitive for a more gentle for everyday use. There is an option for those with sensitive skin to buy alternative brushes specially made for sensitive skin.
It beeps every 20 seconds, to guide you around your face and will automatically stop after one minute to stop you from over-exfoliating, which I thing is extremely useful. The Magnitone can be used with your daily cleanser to help remove makeup. After continual use, it should help make your normal face cream more effective and also give you a more radiant, clearer and softer skin. I know we all dream of walking out of the house with no makeup on so this is a start to achieving that dream!
A little thank you with £5 off voucher when I register my 12 months warranty, which I will be doing now. I can use the savings to get replacement brushes which they advice should be done every three months.
I was so excited to try this product and as soon as it, I had to test it out and as you can see from this post here I was not disappointed. Now am excited to see if my skin improves after 7 days!
Click here to find out more about this product on the Magnitone website.
The Magnitone Lucid costs £69.99 which compared with similar products is relatively a good value for money.
I will document my 7 days journey and I will write a post on the results…so keep an a look out for that post soon.
Have you tried the Magnitone Lucid? 
A message from Pixie Lott
“hectic schedules can take a toll on my complexion. Magnitone Lucid helps me get more from my daily cleansing routine and easily slots into my busy life.”

SkinnyMint Teatox

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 2 views

I joined on the SkinnyMint teatox craze two months ago and started my 28 Day teatox. In case you’re Oh why? Oh why, Becky…. why? I consider myself to be a very healthy (actually maybe a not so healthy most days) slim looking girl. But, I always feel exhausted and tired, I have tried drinking pills to help with my energy levels and it never seems to work and I thought doing a teatox might help with this issue. I did not and do not want to lose weight.

So what’s SkinnyMint, you ask? Well, my dear, they’re a two-step natural tea detox program. It helps to achieve the best natural cleanse (similar to the juice cleanse), increases energy levels with detoxifying effects.
The Morning Boost is designed to help boost your energy throughout the day and also should contribute to control your appetite; the Night Cleanse is meant to cleanse the body naturally as during the night. I decided to opt for the 28day teatox, they offer a 14 Day program for those who wish to try it out before fully committing.
To achieve your set goal, you must follow the teatox correctly; drink the tea and eat a healthy well-balanced diet. The teatox is not a diet plan!
First impression
For the 28Day teatox, you will receive 28 Morning Boost teabags and 14 Night Cleanse tea bags.
The first day I drank the tea, my stomach went crazy (soz TMI, I don’t feel it’s appropriate to share more. So I shall spare you the details but I hope you get the idea because I want you to be prepared for any eventuality when or if you start using it. The more you used it, the more your body will get accustomed to the program and no more stomach craziness 🙂
I found that it tasted rather bad; add a few lemon slices in the tea each time, it will help improve the taste.
Did it work for you
No am afraid it didn’t help to boost y energy levels. It did, however, contribute to control my appetite and made me eat a little less junk which was kinda nice. Shamefully, I have to admit, I have lost weight am now a jeans size smaller. And what’s worse, is that I do enjoy drinking the tea and I might consider doing another 28 Day teatox because I feel it may help increase my energy levels the more I use it.
I know the program kinda sound crazy, I promise you it’s not as scary as it sounds.
For more information, please visit SkinnyMint website here.
I hope you found this helpful in your quest for teatoxing? Please feel free to ask away in the comment section below.
Lots of love
