BEAUTY | first impressions of the British Beauty Box

*AD – this post contains gifted items. No payment has been received.

Hey up lovelies,

I’ve not written one of these posts for a while … in fact the last one I wrote was for a couple of purchases I made from Trinny of London at the beginning of last year . So today I thought I’d rectify that and give you my first impressions of The British Beauty Box which I received a few days ago.

Just to warn you this post maybe tinged with Rocky Horror Picture Show narratives as my fabulous BF secured tickets last night for me and a couple of friends to go andsee it at The Lyceum Theatre in a few weeks time. Whoop whoop. [Refer to my previous blog post and you’ll understand my excitement !] Even my dog Mollie is answering to Sweet Transvestite or Frank n Furta!

So anyway back to beauty –

Please remember this is an initial thoughts only post. I’ll review seperate products in future posts when I’ve had a chance to use them for a few months.

The British Beauty Box is on its 2nd edition and is delivered to your door every 3 months so you will receive 4 boxes a year. There are different payment options:

  • Monthly – Pay £25.00 per month
  • Quarterly – Pay £50.00 every 3 months
  • Annually – Pay a one time payment of £175.00

You will receive 5 full-size products in each beauty box . That’s an amazing saving when you consider the  contents are worth over £200.00 [based on RRP.]

Beauty | Trufflelixir – Reveal your best skin …

I’m excited to share with you a skin-care product I’ve been using for the past month. It only launched today and I’ve been keeping ‘her’ identity firmly under wraps!

I feel so privileged to have been given this opportunity… anybody who knows me knows I’m skincare obsessed and just LOVE trying something new. [They also know I can’t hold my own water so keeping this under wraps has been a little victory to me! ]

It maybe my history of living with bad skin in the past that led me down this path. The constant search for products and treatments that deliver better skin … who knows ? but it’s one I enjoy pursuing.

So without further ado let me introduce you to … [drum roll ]

Vionic Leopard Feet … getting feet summer ready

It’s that time of year when I reluctantly have to shave my legs. It’s not that I enjoy being compared to a hairy mammoth . I honestly just can’t be arsed.

It’s a faff too far.

Talking of faffing. I will then have to  false tan myself. Some people like to embrace their paleness . Me … well I like to look like a sultana!

False tanning usually results in stripey legs and bright orange palms!

Everywhere else applies like a dream but when it comes to my legs it’s a totally diferent ball-game. If I was a cafe I’d be called ‘Streaky patchy central’

No matter how much I wash my hands my palms always remain a slight tinge of orange.

I need to invest in some tanning gloves and moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!

Something I do enjoy [ good faffing let’s say] is preparing my feet … making them look all pretty for the forth-coming  ‘sandal days’ the anticipation of the beach , of BBQ’ S and fun in the sun.

I love bright toe nails, tanned legs and feet adorned in beautiful sandals.

In an ideal world I’d surround my bath tub with candles and light them to create ambiance. I’d then jump in making sure there were lots and lots of bubbles.  Continue reading

Retinol Resurfacing Treatment by Merumaya …

Whenever I start a beauty blog I always think back to something my mum once said and it makes me chuckle… “we aren’t all bloggers, we don’t have time to phaff or spend ages reading up on stuff we just want to know if it works!”

If this was the case then this post would go along something along these lines.

Merumaya Retinol Resurfacing Treatment – 30ml 

It works.

It’s flipping fabulous.

Until next time Tracey x

But I’m not sure that would cut the mustard really. Mum if you are reading, you can leave now you’ll not be bothered by the rest of this post. Continue reading
