The Glamour Summer Edit

 I woke up this morning to the arrival of my Latest In Beauty – The Glamour Summer Edit box, since it’s been a few months since I’ve done an unboxing and because despite receiving a load of subscription boxes I was really excited about this one I thought I’d share it.

When I opened the box the first thing I saw was the temporary tattoos. This is a throwaway item to me. I know they’re all the rage right now and a completely valid thing to include. However, I’m an adult (apparently), and these remind of being kid and getting them as a prize at the bottom of a cereal box and to be honest, I didn’t like them then.

The next item was Eucerin SPF 30 Facial Sun Cream; it’s a summer box and SPF is important so I can’t complain. It’s not super exciting, but I’ll definitely use it. 

Balance Me, Super Toning Body Polish is the next item in this box. Like the sun cream, it’s not overly exciting, but useful. If you want you tan to last it’s important to exfoliate. Since I work nights and I’m pretty sure the sun in a myth, I like to help any tan I do get, to last as long as humanly possible, since I never know when I may see the sun again. Smell wise, it’s a little herbal for my liking and also after swatching it, it doesn’t feel all the gritty so we’ll have to see how well this actually works. 

 The next item is the L’Occitance Shampoo and Conditioner. Shampoo and conditioner isn’t normally something I’m happy to see in a subscription box. but this is L’Occitance we’re talking about here. It’s a very high end brand. My only problem with it is the smell, I had to give away a hand cream that worked fantastically because I wouldn’t get over that overly masculine smell. I’m just hoping the smell doesn’t linger in my hair.

Vita Liberata – Trystal Minerals is the next item in the box. Unlike some of the other items, this is both exciting and frighten. It’s a self-tanning bronzer. You apply it like a normal bronzer and throughout the day it develops into a natural looking tan that last up to 5 days… or so it claims. 

 Next up we have Caudalie – Divine Oil; I’ve never tried this before, but I haven’t met a Caudalie product I don’t like so I’m excited to give it a go. It doesn’t have the classic Caudalie smell, it smells kind of like baby oil, but that won’t stop me from giving it a go.

Pixi Glow Tonic is next up, this is a cult classic that I’ve been waiting to try for forever, but Pixi products are hard to come by in the UK. It’s a tiny sample only 15ml but it doesn’t make me any less excited. It’s meant to tighten, tone, exfoliate and leave you with a glow, we’ll see if it does any of what it claims, but I’m sure it’s a cult classic for a reason. 
 Next up is Bourjois – Colour Boost in 04 Peach on the Beach. I like the formula, it’s very moisturizing. The colour on the other hand isn’t my favourite. It’s a pretty coral colour, but I try to avoid them. I find coral colours tend to make my teeth look yellow and that’s just not a cute look.

The final item in the box is this Nails Inc Gel Effect nail polish in Uptown. I’d be more excited for this item if I hadn’t bought 2 nail polish this week in a very similar colour. That said, I love Nail Inc nail polish, its good formula that normally lasts on me. So I can’t really complain. 

Overall I’m really impressed with this box. At £17.99 it seems like a fair price for everything you get. Yes some things aren’t super exciting but minus the tattoos everything in the box is useful. Plus you get some high end brands which is always a good thing.

So let me know what you think about LIB’s latest offering in the comment box below and as always stay and play safe.

My Little Box

To my absolute horror you guys seemed to really enjoy the MEMEBOX unboxing I did last month. I have a new found respect for beauty bloggers everywhere, I did not realize how much work goes into those seemly simple posts. But since you guys seemed to enjoy that one so much, I thought I’d share with you one of the other subscription boxes I get…. Like I said I’m kind of addicted to them.

The box I’m sharing with you this time, is the “My Little Box” which is a French subscription box, this month’s box is the “My Little Frenchie Box”. Which, as always, comes beautifully boxed, and with a bunch of paper crap I’m never going to read. This month’s box came with 6 items, 4 of them makeup and 2 life style items. 

My Little Beauty - Complexion Enhancer – Glowing Skin: was the first item I saw when I opened this box. The random bits of paper says it retails for £9.50. I’ll be honest, I’m not sure what this product is, and I’ve already given it away so I won’t be trying it. It’s just not my thing.

DHC – Blotting papers: was the next item I saw, retailing for £4. They’re made from 100% natural hemp fibres and like all blotting papers are designed to absorb oil. I don’t really have oily skin, but I shall keep them around and give them a try.

L’Oreal Paris – Super Liner Brow Artist Plumper: Is a really long name for brow gel. I was gifted with pretty eyebrows so I have also already given away this product. It retails for £5.99 just in case you care.

By Terry – Terrybly Khol Crayon: Retailing for £23, understandably when I saw this eyeliner in the box was more than a little happy. In the colour 3 – Bronzer Generation which is black with bronze glitter is actually useable, which is a major plus. I haven’t used it yet, however, I did swatch it on my hand and the bad boy is going nowhere.

Smartphone Case: This ugly, ugly bit of cardboard and fabric retails for £16 apparently…. Moving on.

Pot Of Messages: This pot of special messages to brighten your day retails for £6.50 and is possibly the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. Forgetting the fact the one I opened was misspelled, I just don’t see the point however, the bottle was adorable, so that’s something.

I’ll be honest with you guys, I’ve been meaning to cancel this box since before Christmas, however, I’m lazy and every time I plan to do it they put a damn item in the box I fall in love with. This month being that £23 eyeliner. The box itself cost £11 plus £3.95 p&p, which works out less than the cost of the liner, so once again, I think the box lives on another month. I will say this, if you enjoy lifestyle items, give this box a go. They aren’t my favourite hence my love/hate relationship with this box.

As always, that’s just my thoughts and opinions, but I love to hear yours. And if you have any subscription box suggests, leave them for me in the comment box below. As always my dears stay and play safe.

MEMEBOX - Daily Must-Wears

If you don’t follow me on Twitter (@TheHonestBitch) you may not be aware, but I have a tiny subscription box addiction and my absolute favourites is MEMEBOX*. So when my latest one showed up in the mail this morning, I thought I’d share it with you.

This box came with 5 products, all of which were full size, which is pretty standard for MEMEBOX*. As always, on the top, was the magic information card that lets you know what the products are and most importantly, how to them since a lot of the products have little to no English on them.


The first item in this box is the LAILLY 7 Seconds Makeup Booster which retails for $41. From what I can tell it’s a makeup a primer, made from strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and acai berry extracts.not sure how it’ll do keeping my makeup in place but it sounds yummy. 

Next up is the TOUCH COUTURE Perfect Dual kit which retails for $35. This is one strange idea, which is something I say a lot while opening my MEMEBOXES. On one side, it’s a lip gloss tint on the other side it’s an eyebrow gel. I don’t know about you, but I have ever thought to myself “hey you know what this lip gloss needs….. eyebrow gel” but whatever 
The 3rd item is not 1, not 2 but 5 of the ESTHETIC HOUSE – Collagen Jelly pack Mask Sheets. Which retail for $17. These are 20 minute sheet masks designed to help energize and hydrate. 

The 4th item in this box is the LA BELLONA Camellia Oleifera Oil Clinic which retails for $11. From what I can tell this can either be used as a conditioner or a hair mask, either way it’s meant to repair dry or damaged hair making it healthy, shiny and soft. 

The 5th and final item could have been any one of 3 items, the one I received was the MOKSHA –Bidan Cream which retails for $46. I’ve read the card about 20 times on this item and I’m going with it’s a moisturizer. It doesn’t actually say that anywhere but it seems like a solid guess. It says bidan is Korean for silk and it minimizes blemishes and fine lines and you should message it into your face. 

So that is what was inside my MEMEBOX – Daily Must- Wears box*. If you’re interested in giving MEMEBOX ago click any of the links in this post or head over to MEMEBOX.COM.  I hope you guys have enjoy this, I know it’s a little different than what I normally do.
