Loot Crate July Theme Reveal

This months Loot Crate theme has been revealed and my crate will shortly be with me.

This theme revolves around the world’s most hated thing known to mankind:

They cause havoc in cities, children to cry and heroes to fight; they destroy planets and lives with anguish and passion, they are the worst kind of people known to man – they are the Villains of the world. Gotham stands no chance in a game of cards when the Joker is played, the father of Luke wonders in the dark with the Death Star in tow and there is always that one girl with a Raven on her shoulder and skin as blue as the ocean that consumes the globe; these are some of the Villains feared by all but where every Joker, there is a Bat. With every dark side, there is a beacon of light and with every Raven, there is a Wolverine.

July’s crate is all to do with Villains, so join me soon in my unboxing of this months Loot Crate.

Unfortunately I didn’t fly first class but I was able to pick up this cute Benefit travel set on board:-

First Class FlirtsFCF Back

Here are the items I got inside. Cannot wait to try them out!

Total MoistureGal and PoreBenetint1Blush - DandelionBenefit - Watts Up

I am glad I got this on the way back, I love Benefit products and even though these are only sample sizes I am still really excited to try them out. I have always wanted to get a Benefit blush but have never been too sure which one to use.
My beauty regime has also changed a lot especially the way I am applying make up and how much I am putting on my skin. I barely wore any make up on holiday apart from to cover up any problem areas and a bit of bronzer, I am hoping to incorporate this into my routine back in England as it takes less time and any skin problems I have will clear up quicker. I am going to definetly include these into my routine, cannot wait to also try out the “That Gal” primer, I have heard fantastic things about it.  This only cost me £16.50 on the plane so was a fantastic buy.  I love Duty Free and whoever came up with the idea!

That’s all from me,

Holiday Survival Kit

I have just come back from my relaxing holiday in Palma and luckily for me it is sunny back here in England. So to keep me in the holiday spirit whilst the sun is high in the sky I have put together a mini holiday survival kit for you all to enjoy!

1. Oil Absorbing Sheets – A great little piece to carry around in your bag when you are on the go in humid heat; easy and quick to use.  Would suggest this as a must have for anyone, even if you aren’t going away it is a great way to remove excess shine and grease from the face, even when make up has been applied. They give you a matte complexion instantly. I picked up this item from Boots they weren’t that expensive and with the ones I chose I got 50 sheets, the one I bought was part of the Boots own Skin Clear range. They are incredible and I would not leave home without them. 

2. Moisturizer - Face, body –  the whole shebang; the hot sun can do a lot of damage to your skin so make sure to keep it replenished after being out in the sun especially if you get sunburnt as it will also prevent peeling and keep the colour locked in for longer. This brings me to my next item…

3. Sunscreen - A must have! Skin care is vital when being in the sun whatever the country.  Skin cancer is serious and is something you want try and prevent as much as possible so take some safety steps to protect your skin and look after yourself. Using a sunscreen is important and is a must, I cannot say that enough. If you want a nice tan you can still get one with a factor 30 also make sure the brand has a good UV rating. The better the UV rating, the better the protection.

4. Good Deodorant - Being in the humidity will cause you to sweat a lot so having a good deodorant that can prevent under arm sweating and avoid odours is something crucial in surviving a nice holiday in the sun. I found a great deodorant that worked perfectly for me.  Palma obviously isn’t the hottest place to go but it isn’t exactly cold either, the deodorant I used was Mitchum 48HR Protection Flower Fresh Spray along with the Mitchum 48HR Powder Fresh under arm roll on.  Both of these stayed put throughout the day, I wouldn’t say for the whole 48 hours due to the heat but they certainly together prevented sweating and kept me smelling fresh.  By far the best deodorant I have used, at the moment on sale in Boots – 2 for £4 which is a bargain compared to their usual retail prices.

5. Last but not least – A Good Read – Having a good book to read is another thing needed when on holiday, you can’t go wrong sitting by the pool with an interesting storyline that grips you from the off set.  The two books I chose to read were:- All you Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and Sad Wind from the Sea by Jack Higgins. Both great reads and now that I am back I cannot wait to read my other Jack Higgins book The Khufra Run. For anyone wondering whether to give his novels a read I would highly recommend doing so, they are gripping and absolutely interesting. I adore his writing style and I am sad I didn’t start reading Sad Wind from the Sea earlier. So stop with the excuses and pick up one of his books! You won’t regret it!

If you have anything else that you think is needed for a holiday survival kit, please leave me a comment down below.  I know there are hundreds of must haves for any holiday to take with you but these are a few I can think of, thought I’d keep it short and sweet.

That’s all from me, I am in many ways glad to be back just missing the sunshine and also hoping my new lovely tan will stay put for the foreseeable future!

P.S. Sand may be annoying especially once you’ve come back from the beach and find it everywhere! However it is a natural exfoliant so collect all the sand you’ve accumulated and use it with water to exfoliate the skin and remove any dry skin. Perfect – Turn annoyances into fabulous beauty products!

June Loot Crate – Transform

My friend received their crate at the weekend so I knew that first thing this morning I would come into work to find my Loot Crate waiting for me. Two whole days of waiting later and here it is, my crate of transforming goodies. Lets stop the chit-chat and get right to it.  I know this is late compared to some other people’s so instead of making anyone out there wait any longer, here it is;

Gotta go back in time!! This months Loot Crate items were not the best I have ever received from the wonderful people at Loot Crate but I did enjoy them especially the Back to the Future themed t-shirt. I have always been a huge fan so to get a shirt remotely linked to BTF is a plus; by far my favourite item in the crate. I am quite disappointed though that not many of the items can transform from one thing to another, I had such high hopes and think they missed out on a great opportunity. Either way these items aren’t the worst and I am happy to have received them.

Tony Moly Happy New Year Best Sellers 2014 Review

Happy New Year!
I know what you’re thinking and yes, I do know it is June so it is far too late in the year to even say Happy New Year let alone type it.  Is it bad luck to say Happy New Year when it is this late on in the year? Is it like uttering the Scottish plays name in the theatre before they’re about to go on and act? Well if I all of a sudden have a string of bad luck I know why.I wanted to try some Tony Moly cosmetics but wasn’t too sure what to start with then I came across this beautiful little set above – with a toner, moisturiser and BB cream I thought I had hit the jack pot and for only £4 ish it seemed well worth it.

 

The Nutra Energy Toner

Out of the set this is by far my least favourite item, the toner feels greasy on my skin and unpleasant to use.  It is also very difficult to get out of the actual bottle itself which adds to the annoyance of this product. Overall I only give this product a 1 out of 5. 
 

The Nutra Energy 100 Hours Cream

I really liked this moisturisor, whenever I was having a really dry skin day I could just use this and it would work a treat.  Would recommend this product to anyone, it is amazing stuff and works like a dream. 
Overall I give this a 5 out of 5. 
 

Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream

Last but not least, this small cute little BB Cream.  I love this BB cream, it is easy to apply and not too thick when applied to the skin, it has light to medium coverage. The incredible thing about this product is that it doesn’t become greasy and no shine appears despite how long you wear it for.   I absolutely love this for this reason alone, it is shocking to finally find a product that actually works in combating shine and oil.  One of my personal favourite items to use.
Overall I also give this 5 out of 5.
 
This was a steal at the price I got it for and I would definitely buy the bigger version of them not including the toner.  I could be judging it too harshly, I may give this another go at a later date.  I would recommend anyone to give these a go even if it is the ordinary sized versions.  
 
That’s all from me for today, you can pick up the bigger versions for yourself or even this small little set from: —-> http://beautynetkorea.com/
