Karitzy Cosmetics Shade Stix:
When I first saw this product I found the lid kept falling off and if I would travel with this then it would create a mess. The packaging does feel quite cheap especially for the price as well.I have never tried a cream contour stick thought so I am very excited to try it out. The information card that comes inside the box says ‘A fabulous multi-tasker, it makes a perfect bronzer and cream contour thats both highly pigmented and long-lasting. We absolutely love the creamy, weightless texture that makes it really easy to blend.’ This is a full size product and retails for £18

Monu Skin Eye Cool Gel:
I love trying out new skincare products so I am of course excited to try this one out. I did put a little bit on the back of my hand and I do really like how cooling and thin its feels. The information card says ‘Delivering immediate results, its an all-round miracle! So say “au revoir” to dark circles and look forward to hydrated, bright eyes’. This is a full size product and retails for £24.95

Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix:
I have tried Nip + Fab products before and I have really enjoyed them. I have only heard good things about the brand too. I am always looking for a new face scrub as well as I love trying new ones out. It smells amazing too! The information card says ‘There’s nothing like a good exfoliator to wash away your skincare faux pas! Containing 3% glycolic acid, salicylic acid and fine-grains, your skin will be refined and brightened. The fresh grapefruit scent makes this the piece de resistance of face scrubs’. This is a sample size (50ml) but the full size product (75ml) retails for £9.95

Novel Mystic Black Deep Hair Mask:
Again I love trying out new hair masks finding out the best of the best. I have never heard of this brand before but I think the packaging is super cute and different. I do really hope this is a really good hair mask. The information card says ‘We all need a miracle working hair mask that leaves your hair feeling hydrated, free of frizz, tangles and split ends! It’s enriched with baobab oil and is free from any nasties including parabens, sulphates and silicones too!’ This is a sample size (100ml) but the full size product (1kg) retails for £11.95

Wilkinson Sword Intuition f.a.b. Razor:
I have seen this razor advertise a lot of the tv and I was so eager to try it out and see if it actually works well without cutting yourself. Therefore, I was very excited to see this in this months GlossyBox. The information card says ‘Get your poolside pins in check with this revolutionary razor that makes sharing a dream! We’re amazed how the bi-directional blades and water activated gel allow you to shave forwards and backward effortlessly’. This is a full size product and retails for £12 (one razor).

IMG_E2263IMG_E2264IMG_2265IMG_2266IMG_2267IMG_2268

Urban Decay All Nighter Make Up Setting Spray:
I have wanted to try this product for a long time and I’ve had it but only recently have I fallen in love with it. It sets my make up really well, helps it last all day and it helps to make my make up look less powdery. I would definitely recommend this product as well.

Pretty Little Thing Top:
I have recently done a bit of shopping on Pretty Little Things and I picked up this top. I love to tie the top up at the front as I think it looks super cute and helps to cinch in my waist. I have been wearing this top loads since I have got it as well..

Ted Baker Cardholder:
Again I have wanted a smaller purse for a while because my current purse is quite big and chunky. And my friend has a Ted Baker cardholder and I had to pick one up as well and I absolutely love it! I have pretty much been using it everyday as well. It’s super cute too!

Michael Kors Saffiano Jet Set Crossbody Bag:
I have wanted this bag for a long time now and I have finally bought it. I have been loving how cute it looks with so many different outfits and I can actually fit a surprising amount of things inside it. I have been using it pretty much everyday.

Rekorderlig Passionfruit Cider:
I have recently got into drinking cider and I really like Rekorderlig cider. Especially the passionfruit one.

Desenio:
I have recently bought a few prints from Desenio and I really like them. I have put all of them in a black frame which I got from The Range. I have two in my lounge, two in my spare room and I have another one just sitting on the side of my dressing table. I absolutely love all of the and I would 100% recommend Desenio prints.

Money Box:
My mum and dad bought this money box for me for Christmas and I have been putting all my loose change in it (1ps, 2ps and 5ps). I think its so cute sitting on the side of my room and I absolutely love it! I love the design of it and again it’s just super cute!

IMG_2180IMG_2181IMG_2182IMG_2183

GelSpa Just For Feet – Luxury Jelly Boot Soak:
I was very pleased when I saw this inside the box. I always love using pampering bits and bobs, especially on my feet since I work on my feet all day. I havent seen a product like this before as well so I am very eager to try it out. The information card that comes inside the box says ‘GelSpa’s vegan-friendly Jelly Foot Soak is a specially developed powder which turns water to gel – yes miracles do exist! Let the aromas of lavender and lemongrass help you to relax after a long day, while the soak gently moisturises and soothes your tired feet. Afterwards, simply add the second step to magically turn the gel back to liquid!’ This is a full size product and retails for £4.99

Maria Nila True Soft Shampoo and Conditioner:
I have heard of the brand and heard very god things, so I was very happy when I saw this inside this month’s box. It smells really good as well. The information card for the shampoo says ‘Sulphate and paraben free, the gentle formula softens, moisturises and strengthens the structure of your hair. With a recipe for super shiny locks and frizz fighting ingredients’. This is a travel size and the travel size (100ml) retails for £3.98, and the full size product (350ml) retails for £12.98.

And the information card for the conditioner says ‘This gorgeous conditioner completes your dreamy haircare duo.

This is a travel size product and the travel size (100ml) retails for £4.99, and the full size product (300ml) retails for £13.99.

Trifle Cosmetic’s Praline Palette:
I have received a different product from the brand before and I think the packaging is so cute. The shades in the palette don’t really shout to me although they are very pigmented. The information card says ‘The intense shades range from a neutral bronze to wearable khaki and deep eggplant. Formulated to be creamy yet vivid, these unique powders have a velvety smooth texture and are 100% vegan plus free from any nasties!’ This is a full size product and retails for £15.55

Kueshi Facial Make Up Remover:
I have never heard of this brand before so I was eager to try it out. The information card says ‘The clear solution is rich in soft oils and works with the blue solution to remove make up gently. It will leave your skin feeling refreshed so you can drift off to sleep cleansed and happy.’ This is a full size product and retails for £10.50

We Are Tea Earl Grey (Extra Treat):
I love trying out new tea’s so I was very excited when I saw this in this months glossybox. I haven’t heard of this brand before so I am excited to try it out. The information card says ‘We’ve teamed up with this ethical, London based tea company to treat you to one of these relaxing teas! Earl Grey: With a delicate aroma of bergamot fruit and a sprinkling of blue cornflowers, this black tea offers a refreshing infusion’. This is one sachet but in a box you get 15 tea bags which retails for £2.99.

April Favourite’s 2018

Time for another monthly favourites video. This month I will be sharing with you what I have been loving throughout April. There is a few beauty bits and some random bits as well. Also check out my youtube channel HannahxoxoBlog. I hope you enjoy!

IMG_E2004IMG_2005IMG_2006IMG_2007IMG_E2008

Affect Transparent Loose Rice Powder with Matt-Effect:
I received this is in my glossybox and I was very eager to try it out. The main reason why I love this powder so much is the packing. It is a loose powder so normally they are really messy, but because there is a twist top it hardly makes as mess. This is a matt powder which I do prefer some days, especially in the Summer when I’m looking bit too shiny. I don’t have a matt powder in my make up collection as well so I do really appreciate having one now.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and Zoeva 142 Concealer Buffer:
I have recently been loving this combo to cover my dark circles under my eye’s. I watched a Sephora make up video on youtube about covering dark circles. Now I will start off by concealing under my eyes (Tarte Shape Tape Concealer) and then in the darkest area’s I will use a lighter concealer (Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer) tap it into my skin just in the darkest area not all under my eyes therefore, I will use a smaller brush (Zoeva 142 Concealer Buffer Brush). I find it definitely helps more to cover my under eyes as well and it’s such good little make up trick.

Imperial Leather Foam Burst Luxurious Body Wash:
Again I received this in my glossybox and I fell in love with it. I haven’t seen any product like this before and I love how it foams up and it smells amazing. I am sad it is limited edition as well. I will say I am not a massive fan of the packaging ,as after you’ve used it the nozzle bit will foam up from the excess product. I have tried to clean away the excess product around the nozzle after using it but it still manages to foam up and look messy and dirty. However, I do still love this product.

Sure Shower Fresh Anti-Perspirant:
I picked this up when I was doing my weekly food shop. I find it a good anti-perspirant and does the job. The main reason I love this product is because of the smell. Normally I’m not too bothered by the smell of anti-perspirants. However, it smells really good and I have got so many compliments from it.

Krave:
I have re-fallen in love with the cereal ‘Krave’ recently. This is my go-to cereal in the morning (or anytime at that matter). I love the ‘milk chocolate’ and ‘hazelnut’ favours as well.

HP Sprocket:
I got this for Christmas and I have used it a little but recently I have been absolutely loving it! If you haven’t heard of a HP Sprocket it is a wireless printer which doesn’t use any ink. The pieces of paper it prints onto is also a sticker as well. I find it so quick and easy to printer any pictures straight from my phone. I have also done a collage using this printer with pictures of all my friends and family.

The Range:
I have recently had a new range open in my town and I had a look in there the other week and I found so many good little buys. I have been back multiple times as well. There is a cafe upstairs which is lovely and there is such a good range of products including furniture, home bits and bobs, pets and garden.
