I had the pleasure of trying out the Smileaway beauty subscription box earlier this year and what a gorgeous and indulgent gift it makes – to yourself or someone else. The November black box has five treats inside to make your bath-time experience the most luxurious it can be – it even has a mini bottle of bubbly and a chocolate truffle so you can relax in style! Every little detail has been carefully thought about and it really shows in the quality and selection, I love that every box has it’s own theme and this month’s ‘Feeling Bubbly’ is so perfect for rainy, cold November giving a nudge to make time, unwind and enjoy some me-time in the bath.
With three beauty loving women in my house I have been on the look out for some great Christmas beauty sets (check out yesterday’s post on an upcoming skincare TSV from TimeBomb & QVC here) and I think that this 7 piece body and fragrance collection from Elizabeth Grant fits the bill nicely. What I love about this set is that it appeals to such a wide age range as I could easily gift this to my teenage daughter, my mum or one of my girl-friends and if you are thinking about gifting this set is so easy to split it into several gifts and still be really generous.
Coming up on the 4th December from QVC they have a great value TSV (Todays Special Value) from TimeBomb and it will be the last TSV from the cult brand before Christmas. I have been a devotee of TimeBomb for the last couple of years ( did you catch my August TSV post?) after trying a TSV for myself and loving the results. It’s a great way to stock up on your favourites from TimeBomb or if you are new to the brand a very cost efficient way to try them out for the first time.
The Sparklers Collection has been carefully put together by TimeBomb and QVC to give 5 perfect products to see you through the festive period and keep your skin looking in tip-top condition and it’s always great to try a new product, this time it’s the Instawow Sparkling Facial Mask a super speedy brightening mask to get your skin party ready in five minutes. At £47.98 for the 5 piece collection it’s excellent value considering the Collagen Bomb Essential Skin Fuel is £39.00 alone and if you take a look at my own photos below you can see all the contents except the hand-cream which Timebomb have kindly sent to try out. I will certainly be taking advantage of the TSV on the 4th December and with two supersized products included the value is incredible! ** I have just found out that there will also be an easy-pay option if you want to spread the cost. **
I’ve been sharing some ideal Christmas ideas from the gorgeous French brand L’Occitane and the other day I wrote about their fabulous Christmas Baubles. Also from France is another Christmas Bauble beauty idea from the organic beauty brand Melvita with four mini L’Or Bio goodies inside. I’t s lovely treat to put on the tree or wrap to gift and with four dinky treats inside it’s bound to bring a smile to any beauty or skincare lover. The sizes are just perfect for a holiday away or an overnight stay and it’s a great way to trial a collection to decide if you want to buy the full sizes.
In last month’s Libbie Beauty Box (October edition) there were two brilliant products from Salon Science for us Libbie’s to try out, the Regloss Smoothing Serum and Reprotectant Smoothing Serum both from the Repair and Radiance collection. Reviewing the duo to share with other Libbie’s I found they were so perfect for my coloured (and damaged) hair were so nourishing as well as making my hair so soft and bouncy. At £12.00 each they offered great value as they last so very long and I was delighted to try out another collection from Salon Science perfect to help strengthen and restore my hair. The whole Celluluxe™ range is ideal for restoring volume, strengthening and restoring damaged hair and once I had opened up the box of gorgeous hair treats, I couldn’t wait to try them out and “restore youth to lifeless hair” with the unique formulation of plant stem cell technology.
