August GlossyBox 2017

This month’s Glossybox is all about ‘girls just wanna have SUN’. I love the design of the box I think it is really cute. This box I think has some really good goodies!! It also has an extra little hair band in the box as well. I hope you enjoy!

Essence Live.Laugh.Celebrate! Palette:
I absolutely love this palette. I love the idea how you can mix and match what you want inside the palette, it’s super cheap as well. The four shades I received are; ’T.G.I.F.’ eyeshadow (which is a perfect crease shade), ‘It’s my birthday’ eyeshadow, ‘My special highlight’ which is a highlight (it’s very natural but you can build it up too make it more intense), and ‘Rhythm of the Night’ blush. The information card that comes with the box say’s ‘How often have you wanted to create your own make up palette? Now you can. Essence’s clever compact contains four slots so that you can mix and match your perfect combination from their ranges of shades’. This is a full size product and retails for £1.50 per palette and £1.50 per powder (which I think is very reasonably priced).


Model Launcher Safari Sun Bronzer:
I love trying out new bronzers so I was excited when I first saw this in the box. I like the idea of the pattern in the pan, I think it’s really cool. The information card say’s ‘Summer makeup isn’t complete without the perfect bronzer. This talc-free, mineral-enriched formula looks as good on skin as it does in the compact.’ This is a full size product and retails for £16.50 (I personally think it is a little expensive as the packaging does feel like a cheap plastic).


Malquer Ice Hair Mask, Total Repair:
I love trying out new hair masks so I’m excited to try this one out! It doesn’t have a strong scent, it’s a very simple and suttle scent. The card say’s ‘This one-of-a-kind energising hair mask has a cooling effect, which powers up the macadamia oil making it even better at hydrating and taming hair.’ It says to massage this product into my hair which I’m a little scared it will make my hair greasy as it is a mask. But it does say ‘ice hair mask’ so I’m not too sure how it will work out, but I’m excited to try it out. This is a sample size but the full size retails for £14.99


Batiste 2in1 Dry Shampoo & Conditioner Orange & Pomegranate:
I love Batiste products so I was super excited when I saw I received this in my box. When I spray it, it looks the same but doesn’t feel as heavy and seems like it won’t leave a white cast on my hair. I can’t wait to try this product out! It smells really good as well! The information card say’s ‘Rethink the way you use dry shampoo. This 2in1 combines dry shampoo with conditioner to refresh your roots while conditioning the lengths, making it particularly good for those with dry, coloured or curly hair.’ This is a sample size but the full size retails for £4.49


Radial Suede Lips:
We have received something from this brand before in one of our previous Glossybox’s. This is a lip crayon which I really like, I find them very quick and easy, perfect for day-to-day. I received the colour ‘big apple’ which is a slightly deep nude pink shade. The card say’s ‘Intense. Matte. Moisturising. This perfect summer lip shade contains hydrating vitamin E and the shape makes it easy to swipe on.’ This is a full size product and retails for £22 (Which I personally think is expensive for what it is).

And that is everything I received in my Glossybox this month. Also check out my Youtube channel hannahxoxoblog. I hope you enjoyed and I hope to see you soon! Bye!

May GlossyBox

This month’s Glossybox I found had a few exciting things inside for me. So I thought I would share them with you like I do every month. Also inside my box was a gift card from MockBerg which is very kind of them.

fullsizeoutput_4c8Scrub Love Active Charcoal Body Scrub:
I was very excited when I first saw this as I love body scrubs and I love detoxifying my skin. The packaging say’s ‘Deeply Cleansing, Gently Smoothing, Naturally Hydrating’, which all three statements appeal to me. There is also Avocado and Aloe Vera ingredients which I love the sound of. The information card that comes with the box say’s ‘This charcoal-based body exfoliator – charcoal is one of the most ancient detoxing ingredients – absorbs the day-to-day pollutants and impurities that sit on the skin’. This retails for £13.95

NutraKiss Lip Plumper:
I love tying out lip plumper to see if they actually work. So, Im eager to try this one out. I have put some on my lips quickly and you can definitely feel like its working but we will have to wait and see. The information card say’s ‘This transparent lip gloss contains active ingredients complex that has a volumising and nourishing-effect on lips, as well as creating great shine’. This is a tester size (it’s really cute) and the full size retails for £13

fullsizeoutput_4c9Ruby Powder Blush in Coral:
I love trying out new make up products so I was excited to try it out. The packaging does feel a little cheap I will say. But, when I swatch it it’s very pigmented and blends lovely. The card say’s ‘RUBY’s super silky powder blush gives a perfect pop of coral colour to your cheeks for a summer glow’. This is a full size product and retails for €14.99

fullsizeoutput_4caDr.PAWPAW Original Balm:
I haven’t heard of this brand before but it does say on the packaging ‘For Lips, Skin, Hair and Beauty Finishing, Cuticles and Nails’. Which appeals to me a lot. I put a little on the back of my hand and it does feel very moisturising. The information card say’s ‘This multipurpose balm is a permanent fixture in many a beauty insider’s makeup bag. It can be used on your lips, skin and hair and can be pressed along the tops of your cheekbones to create cheer sheen or to smooth flyaway hairs and unruly brows’. This is a full size product (which I personally think is a good size) and retail for £6.95 (I again personally think it’s very affordable for all the things it claims to do).

fullsizeoutput_4cbCaudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet:
The words ‘Moisturing Sorbet’ instantly appeals to me and I can’t wait to try it product out. I have put a small amount on the back of my hand and it feels very thin and lightweight which I like. The information card say’s ‘This lightweight gel/cream is rich in powerful anti-oxidants and patented polyphenols to help calm reactive skin and restore it’s water reserves to make it more resilient’. That sound’s perfect I can’t wait to try this product out! This is a tester size but the full size retails for £23

And that is everything I received in my GlossyBox this month. A couple of my favourite things were the Dr.PAWPAW Original Balm and the Caudalie Moisturising Sorbet. I hope you enjoyed reading and I hope to see you soon! Bye!

Looking Through My Memory Box

Hi guys, I thought I would do a slightly different blog today and show you what I have in my memory box. I have had this box for as long as I can remember and anything I have found special or a great memory I have put it in this box.

I have collected a few things from my childhood which include; a door sign that says ‘Hannah’ on it which I have had since I was a little girl, a freddo frog toy (I loved freddo frog when I was younger), a Gameboy me and my brother used to always play with, and a few other bits and bobs. I love collecting things like this from my childhood as its nice to look back on them.

I quite liked school so I have kept my leavers shirt that all my friends wrote on and signed. We also did a photo of everyone in the year which I have kept. This was my final year in school when I was doing my GCSE’s. I have also kept a school photo of me in year 9 (13 years) and year 11 (16 years) and a pillow I made in school when I was 12 years.

I have a photos taken of me and my brother on different rides at different theme parks, jewellery I have received from my family members/loved ones, a Chelsea scarf that I got when I went to one of their football games, a picture of me driving an Audi R8 (my dream car) and a BMW i8 and my sash when I was a bridesmaid for my brother’s wedding, These are all things which I could never throw out as they hold some great memories to me.


Birthday Cards:
I like to keep some of my birthday cards because I think it’s a great milestone thing to keep. I have my 13th, 16th and 18th birthday cards from my family and friends.


I do have a box full of Alfie’s things that I can’t bring myself to throw away (as he was my first dog). In this box there is Alfie’s first lead, some pictures of Alfie when he was a puppy and his vet booklet that said he has had all his vaccinations.

And that is nearly everything I have in my memory box. I would love to know if you guys have a memory box and what you guys keep. I also did a video on Youtube if you would like to check it out at Hannah Oliver! I hope you enjoyed reading, and I hope to see you soon! Bye!

August GlossyBox

Hi guys! I have heard a lot about beauty subscription boxes and I have been interested in them for a while now. So, I thought I would subscribe to one. I choose Glossybox because I have heard quite a lot about them and it’s only £10 a month. I was really excited when the box was delivered in the mail, and I was very impressed by how much effort and care was taken into packaging up the box. The following are the things I received in my Glossybox this month.


Glossybox Zip-up Bag:
A girl can never have too many make-up bags. I always love when you buy a set of products and it comes with a make-up bag. I find them so handy, especially in your handbag. The retail price for this is £20. On the information card that comes with the box it says ’The monogrammed clutches, totes and baskets have graced the arms of Poppy Delevingne. Join the jet set with this mini monogrammed pochette, which has been exclusively designed for Glossybox to celebrate our birthday’.



MakeUp Academy Eyeshadow Palette:
I have never actually tried any make up form this brand before but, I was very surprised. I did some swatches of a few of the shades and they are so pigmented. I’m definitely going to be using this palette and this product was a full size. The retail price for this product is £4. The information card says ‘Each one is highly pigmented, offering twelve on trend eye colours that you can mix, match and blend in numerous ways to create any look you want’.



MudMasky Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask:
I was very excited when I saw this product as I am looking for a new face mask. I did put a little bit on the back of my hand and it feels really nice and not drying at all. I will be trying out this product and seeing how I get on with it. This product is a tester size, but the full size retails for £53 which I thought was quite expensive. Therefore, I do have high expectations for this product. The information card says the following ‘It’s formulated using all-natural ingredients and contains no parabens, but still managers to throughly detoxify skin. It doesn’t stop there though, it also refines and tightens pores, hydrates, brightens and smooths skin and generally gives it a boost’.



Spa To You Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush and Massager:
I was intrigued by this product at first because I thought it would be quite similar to my clarasonic. However, when I took it out of the packaging it was just a normal brush, nothing special. I’m not too excited for this brush but I will still give it a go. Again, this product is the full size and retails for £6.99. The information card says ‘The soft bristles are specially designed to help buff away dead skin cells for a deep but gentle facial cleanse. The combination of silky soft bristles and silicone cushions also help to massage the skin to improve microcirculation for renewal radiance’.



Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion:
I always love trying out new products and I have never heard of this brand before so I really wanted to try it out. I did try a little bit out on the back of my and and it feels really nice. In the bottle there isn’t much of a smell to it. However, on the back of my hand it’s very fresh smelling but not too over powering. The smell reminds me of christmas with all the dried fruit as decorations. This is a tester size, and the full size retails for £20. Again, the information card says the following ‘As well as giving you an energy buzz with its boosting blends of Lemongrass, Ginger and Rosemary, this luxe body lotion deeply moisturises skin with Shea and Cocoa Butters’.
