May 'Getaway' Glossybox: Review

Hello my Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a lovely day. How was everyone's Weekend I hope you all had a lovely one!!
For today's post I am going to be sharing with you all my review of the May 'Getaway's Glossybox.


 May's Glossybox was filled with a variety of products to take with you on that ultimate getaway and this months box is also dedicated to urban getaways , depicting London, Paris, New York and Berlin.


The box in which I received was the Berlin Edition, and all the urban getaway boxes are all designed by OMY Studios.

So lets dive in and review this months box and up first I am going to start off with the Selfie and The City pic in which everyone would have received in there boxes for this month as it was a competition in which Glossybox was holding where you could win a luxury trip to which ever city edition box you received in my case mine was a trip to Berlin.


 I thought this was a pretty cool way to hold a competition and above all eles you were able to take a selfie in your chosen city which was really cool.

Anyway enough about the Selfie and The City, lets move on to the products inside the box.


Hair On Zeor Crease Hair Ties


So up going to kick off with these Zero Crease Hair Ties. These hair ties come in a pack of three and are in a bright pink colour. They promise to never leave a kink or a crease in your hair and I have to say they are completely right. With me having long hair I often find these type of hair ties perfect for my hair as they don't pull on my hair or rub against the surface of hair either. Funny enough theses hair ties remind me of telephone cables except for the bright colour but altogether they are brilliant for tying your hair up with so I would defiantly recommend them too you all. These hair ties will cost you £3.99 for a pack of three which is amazing value!!

Absolute New York Velvet Lippie 


I can't keep up with the amount of lipsticks I have received since joining Glossybox, they do love there lippys just like me!! It feels like barley a month goes by without getting a lipstick. This time its the turn of this Velvet Lippie which is from Absolute New York. These lippies come in a variety of shades, the shade I received was AVL06 Terracotta which i was delighted with as its a shade that suits my complexion. It also has a lovely smell to it and it applies really well on to my lips and lasts throughout the day!! This lipplie cost's £4.93 in stores and online where you can shop for loads more products at absolutenyproducts.com 



Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Lotion (Ultra Radiance) 


Staying with whole theme of 'Getaway's', my next product is this Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Ultra Radiance Lotion which has SPF30. I was meant to have received the Hawaiian Tropic Dry Oil but unfortunately it wasn't in my box but was stated on the editorial piece, so I was sent out a replacement product along with an extra gift which i will share with you all later in the blog. But going back to the product in question and even though we haven't had much sun in Ireland over the past few weeks, there was a spell of sunshine a few weeks priory to when I received this product which meant I got to try it out on my skin!! With the Hawaiian Tropic Lotion it smells gorgeous and the lotion itself absorbs really quick into the skin keeping you protected from the sun. It's also important to keep your skin protected from UVA and UVB rays all year round so this product will come in handy!!


Bee Good Youth Enhancing Plump and Firm Moisturiser


I was delighted when I opened May's Glossybox and seen this product. My facial skincare routine has always been priority for me as I have a really good skin and I want to take care of it now and in the years to come!! Although I love keeping to the same products, I do however love to try new products at the same time. Now that I have started using this moisturiser in the mornings i feel that it has started to plump my skin and leaving it feeling incredible soft. It also leaves a lovely glowing look to my skin which I am delighted with as sometimes if i'm in the house for the day i would tend not to wear as any makeup so this is where this Bee Good Youth Moisturiser comes in handy!! A full size of the product costs £23.50 in stores and online at beegood.co.uk

**Glossy Offer** Use the code MAYGLOSS to save £5 when you spend £15 or more at beegood.co.uk (offer ends 30th June 2016)


Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara 
Next up is the final item out of the May Getaway's Glossybox and its this Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara. I love getting Mascara's from Glossybox because they really do pick the ones that I love the most!! For this months box, Glossybox were giving you the chance to choose one of Revlons Five New Mascara releases, but unfortunately I didn't get there in time to pick one but i was super delighted to receive the Dramatic Definition Mascara. What I love about this mascara is its smooth and flexible formula which coats each lash for a clump free separation which I do look for in a mascara. It also adds beautiful definition to my lashes which gives a lovely sleek look to them which makes me very happy. If you are looking for a mascara that adds definition and drama to your lashes then this is the mascara for you!! 


Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask


I also want to mention the bonus product in which I received with my Hawaiian Tropic Lotion as well and that was a Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask and as a huge fan of face masks i was delighted to receive this. ON the back of the packaging it state that the Clean Cooling Clay Mask is a wonder refreshing deep cleansing treatment that draws out deep seated dirt and impurities while soaking up excess oil and helping prevent blemishes. So I'm looking forward to using it and putting it to the test!! 

Overall I am very happy with this month's box, its a variety of products which can get you ready for that ultimate getaway whether its a City Break, a Sun Holiday or a Hotel Stay!!

May Favourites 2016!!

I'm I'm Hello my Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a lovely day!! For today's post I'm going to share with you all the products I have been loving for the month of May.

The first product I have been loving for the month of May is this Miraculous leave in Conditioner which has Jojoba Oil from Australia and Panthenol.


 I bought this in Aldi's for only €2.99 and I have to say I absolutely love using it on my hair. It keeps my hair feeling super soft and tangle-free which is a huge bonus if i leave my hair to dry natural. It also has a gorgeous smell to it, where it smells some what like bubble gum!!

Miraculous Conditioner Spray is available in all Aldi's Stores

Next up is this Bandi Hydro Care Moisturiser which i received in April's Glossybox. I love using this on my face especially in the mornings as it gives my skin a kick start!! 


What I love about this moisturiser is its lightweight formula that is ideal for normal, combined or oily skin and its also ideal for using as base on your face before applying makeup.

Bandi Hydro Care Moisturiser is available online at http://www.bandi-cosmetics.eu/preparaty.php?seria=21

On to my third favourite for the month of May and its this P.S Makeup Fixing Spray, which i bought in Penney's (Primark) a two months ago. 


I love this stuff it helps in setting your makeup and keeping it on throughout the day and night. I used this on my face for my friends wedding and have to say that this stuff really does work as it sets your makeup for a long lasting finish. When spraying it on it feels like you are spraying 'hairspray' on your face but it does feel very cool and refreshing on the face too. At only €2.50 its very affordable for a fantastic product.

P.S Makeup Fixing Spray is a available at all Penney's (Primark) Outlets.

Next up is this Swiss Smile Whitening Toothpaste again I received this in April's Glossybox. I use this in the Morning and the Evening as I love to keep a routine in brushing my teeth.


Its a fantastic whitening formula which removes stains and gently restores my teeth to its natural whiteness without harming them. I have really noticed the difference in my teeth as they are so much whiter since using this toothpaste, I also love the refreshing smell of mint from it to!! To find out more on this product I recently done a review on it, here's the link, http://stylishnfabulous.blogspot.ie/2016/05/product-review-swiss-smile-whitening.html

Swiss Smile Whitening Toothpaste avaiable online at http://www.swiss-smile-beauty.com/en/

On to my fifth favourite for the month of May is these very clever Eyebrow Stencils from Penney's (Primark). I happen to see these on a trip to my local Penney's and i decided to buy them to try out. I have heard of Eyebrow Stencils before so i was very intrigued to find out how they would do. 


So in the packed you recieve six stencils in total, they are all different shapes and they also have different arches to suit the brows you have or the brows you want to create. I have been using the stencils non stop in creating them perfect brows and I have also been experimenting with the other stencils by creating different brow styles which is really fun. I personnally am huge fan of these stencils as they create the perfect brow style and its really quick and simple to use them too. I will be doing a full review on these stencils later on in the week.

PS Eyebrow Stencils available at all Penney's (Primark) Outlets.

On to my last favourite for the month of May and its this Hey Honey Good Morning Facial Serum which again is another product from April's Glossybox.


 I love to use this Serum just after i have exfoliated my face in the mornings and just before i have applied my moisturiser. It gilds on to the skin and keeps it very smooth!! It also leaves a lovely soft and glossy appearance to the skin which helps my skin look a lot more radiant. 

Hey Honey 'Good Morning' Facial Serum is a available online at heyhoney.com

Weekend/Bank Holiday: Outfit of the Day!!

I'm I'm Hello my Lovelies,

I hope your all having a lovely day, the weather here in Ireland is gorgeous today long may it last!!
For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you all today's Outfit of the Day, iv'e realised over the last few months I haven't done a post on this in a long time, so i thought today i would do one for you guys.

As it was the Bank Holiday here in Ireland, I'm going to share with you all two outfits I wore, one for the weekend and for the Bank Holiday.

So up first I'm going to start off with my Weekend Outfit, i decided to go for something really causal and relaxing. 


Also as Ireland is going through a mini heat wave, I went with this Indigo basic Tee, with a White Tank Top underneath and a pair of Black Leggings, all of the clothes are from Penney's (Primark) including my shoes today are these Cerise Pink Canvas Pumps which are also from Penny's.

For my Jewellery I decided to wear my two Alex and Ani Bangles which are my Topaz birthstone and my Anchor.


I also have on is my Topaz birthstone ring which I am forever wearing and my Black Sunglasses.

My Make-up for today is a very Natural Look. I love going for looks especially on Weekend's/Bank Holiday's that are natural and very low key, because its a day to just chill and relax so by not having too much make-up on lets your skin breath.


Now on to my outfit for Bank Holiday Monday, as I was going to Ikea i decided to wear this Cotton Black Top from Penney's along with a pair of Printed Trousers which are from the F&F range at Tesco. 


My shoes are a pair of Black Swede Pumps which are also from Penney's.

My jewellery for the day is this gorgeous Beaded Necklace which is from Italy, along with my Topaz ring and my Black Sunglasses.


For my Make-up again its a Natural Day Time Look combined with a Light Brown Shade for my Eyelids and some light contouring along the cheekbones.


And that's my Outfit of the Weekend and Bank Holiday.

Product Review: Swiss Smile Whitening Toothpaste

Hello my Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a lovely day, For today's post I'm going to share with you all this quick review on this Whitening Toothpaste from Swiss Smile.

I received this product a few weeks back in my April Glossybox and with it been the first time reviving a toothpaste product I was overall delighted to try something completely new.

So I'm going to start off by introducing Swiss Smile to you all,

"Swiss Smile stands for the development of the most sought after innovative formulas, which are exquisitely enriched with the finest of ingredients and the most valuable materials, along with a combination of  luxury aesthetics and timeless designs, Swiss Smile is leaving all ordinary tooth care behind and with the support of almost 20,000 renowned dentists, Swiss Smile promises luxurious and highly effective dental and mouth care from day to night"

This Swiss Smile Whitening Toothpaste is a combination of Triclosan and Sodium Fluoride, which reduces new bacterial plaque formation and protects against harmful environmental impact.

The product itself comes in a tube, like most other toothpastes on the market, this particular one comes with a sliver lid which twists fully around so that its easy to open and easy to close.


The Toothpaste is white and has a light texture, smell and fresh taste like all other toothpaste brands on the market. However it does have a foam consistence when brushing your teeth, so I would tend to use a small amount.


I like to brush my teeth at least twice a day, once in the morning and again at night. Since using the toothpaste I absoultly love it. It keeps my teeth feeling incredible clean and smooth and my mouth and breath are fresh throughout the day and night. What I love even more about this toothpaste is that it doesn't harm your teeth, it basically restores teeth to their natural whiteness, which I feel is really good.



Below is a picture of my teeth from using this toothpaste for the past few weeks!!


I hope you guys enjoyed my review on this Swiss Smile Whitening Toothpaste.
