November Chic Treat Club box

This month, Chic Treat Club has done something a little different and teamed up with the people at The Cometic outlet to bring you what I consider to be a really good box this month. Eylure Brow Stencils Eylure have recently released a brow range, and my goodness they have been hitting it out of the park. I recently review the brow crayon from this range, which you can read about here. While I personally don’t need brow stencils, due to the fact I’ve embrowdery done on my brows, these are great for people who struggle with putting some shape on their brows. RRP €6.49 W7 Nail polish W7 isn’t…

August Glossybox

It feel like ages since I reviewed a subscription box, but even though I received my usual boxes in July, I was on holidays and everyone had already seen what was inside each box by the time I got home. So I decided not to put up full reviews of last month’s box. This month’s Glossybox is a special box, as Glossybox are celebrating their 3rd birthday. I have had a bit of a roller coast relationship with Glossybox, but I genuinely feel that they are back heading in the right direction. They aren’t there yet, but things are slowly but surely improving. I am finally getting the hang of…

Win 1 of 5 Bespoke Chic Treat Club boxes

Any regular readers of the blog will know I am a big fan of subscription boxes. I love the excitement of the delivery of each month’s box and the surprise when I open it to see what is inside. I subscribe to a number of subscription boxes and the box that keeps coming up trumps since it’s launch 6 months ago is, the Chic Treat Club box. Chic Treat club is an Irish subscription box service, that delivers a box of 5 great beauty goodies to your door once a month for €16.95. Every month the people at Chic Treat Club, seem to be out doing themselves and the boxes…

June Powder Pocket box

The Theme of this month’s box was Viva Brazil. The people at Powder Pocket want to bring a little bit of the Brazilian samba to our lives. Apart from the colours of this months tissue, I am just not getting the feel of a Brazil from this box at all. In saying that, themes don’t bother me and it is all about the contents of the box. I am not going to lie, I am a little disspoainted with this months box. Firstly for the second month running, the box was late. This is the June box and yet it arrived on July 2nd. This to me is just not…

Chic Treat Club Box – June

This month saw the 6th instalment from the new Irish subscription box company Chic Treat Club. These guys really hit the ground running when the launched in January, and they haven’t slowed down since. The brands they have been working with are impressive and rumour has it, that it is an ever growing list. To make their service even better, they have now launched a month by month subscription service, at the price of €16.95 a month. It is more expensive to do it this way, but ladies this box is worth it. The June box came with 5 full sized products. You know how I love me some full sized products.…

Glossybox June 2014

I had hoped that this post would be a video, but my camera has decided it wants to shut up shop and leave me, so I am back to the good old fashioned blog post . On Monday I received the June Glossybox. Glossybox had really fallen down in the quality of their boxes over the last number of  months, with many people I know and people I follow on twitter cancelling their subscriptions due to substandard boxes. Glossybox works out at around €16 per month, so you want to make sure you are getting value for your money. A lot of people, myself included, were very vocal in their…

May Powder pocket box

Earlier in the week my May Powder Pocket box arrived. The theme of this month’s box was “sweet Treat”. Let’s be honest, Who doesn’t like a sweet treat. This month’s box was a little different than normal, as the box was a fab powder blue colour. Much nicer than the usual black colour. You might be wondering why the May review is being posted so late. Well the May box didn’t actually arrive until June 4th. This actually didn’t bother me that much because they only took the money out a few days before hand, but the boxes really should be delivered in the month intended. I’m not getting my…

Chic Treat Club May box, including 1st impression video

Over the last few months, I have thought about signing up to the Chic Treat Club  subscription box. They only thing that stopped me doing so, was the fact that it cost €44.95 for 3 months and you had to sign up for a minimum of 3 months. Over the last few months, Chic Treat have had a really good selection of full size products in their boxes, and I really like the brands that they had been working with. Last week I heard a rumour that this month’s  box was so full that they literally could not get the lid closed. When I heard that, I knew that I just…

Glossybox May 2014

Here is the thing. Last month I said I was cancelling my Glossybox Subscription, and I was full sure that I had, but in reality I didn’t actually click the submit button to finalise the cancelation. I know, I know rookie mistake. I am a full on clown. So this month I got what is my final ever Glossybox and in many ways, I am glad I got this box. I decided to present the contents of this box in a brand new way and I have filmed my very first YouTube video. I am really nervous about posting this. I feel that I am really putting myself out there, but…

Glossybox April 2014

So here’s the thing. When I received last months Glossybox and saw the absolute dismal contents I decided that it was time to cancel. When I went into my Glossybox account, I saw that I had enough points to get a free box in April. What better way to give them one last chance. Well here’s the thing. Glossybox really messed up for me this month. I have had my fill of not only their hit and miss boxes, but their absolutely appalling attitude to their Irish customers. Irish customers receive their boxes about a week after their Uk counterparts. This is not always the case, but for the most…

Glossybox March 2014

Another month, another Glossybox. This is now my 7th Glossybox and I am sad to say it is the last one. Out of 7 boxes I have had 3 good boxes. The September one and last months box. Sadly this box is the nail in the coffin for Glossybox. Each month I pay €16 and all they send out is budget brand makeup, hand or body lotion and sachets of stuff, some of which has even been out of date. Take a look at the contents below and let me know what you think. Sleek Makeup Pout Polish   I am a big fan of Sleek makeup. I have a…

Glossybox February 2014

Finally. a Glossybox worth blogging about. After last months diabolical box, people left Glossybox in their droves. The people at Glossybox used social media to ask people to stick with them and that they would take on peoples feelings on last months box on board. I even got a tweet asking me to contact them about my complaints. They even  sent out a survey to see what people wanted from Glossybox and how they felt about the brand. In other words the fear of god was put into them because they were seriously losing out on money. This months box is a very good one. It is absolutely going in…

January Glossybox

Well judging by the Glossybox Facebook page people are seriously not happy with this box. I know every month I seem to complain about it and promise to cancel, but I have serious fear of missing out. I know the minute I cancel the next box will be the best box ever. In saying that, this box was the worst box yet. To me is was just full of cheap rubbish. Glossybox is supposed to be a chance to try out products that you would not normally splash out on, but instead again we get more high street products and products I wouldn’t even dream of buying. What gets me…

December’s Glossybox

Glossybox December 2013 Another month, another Glossybox and this month I actually don’t know how I feel about the box. I am beginning to tire of boring products in my Glossybox. While the box doesn’t cost an arm and a leg it’s €16 and I’m beginning to think it might be better spent elsewhere. I’ve decided that I am going to give them 2 more months before I make up my mind to keep it or not. Glossybox December 2013 Decembers Glossybox is traditionally a special box. I really like the festive packaging. The candy cane paper and green bedding is so cute. However, that is where the festive theme…

November’s GlossyBox

It seems like only last week that I was reviewing my October GlossyBox. Seriously where is the time going? October’s GlossyBox was a bit of a disappointment to many people. It’s not like every box can be a wow box, but we do expect a little bit more than what we got last October. Thankfully the people over at GlossyBox upped their game a little more this month. The theme of this months GlossyBox was “The Glossy Wishlist”. The Glossy wishlist gives people a chance to start compiling their Christmas list. While the items in the box would not be something that I would want for Christmas, there are many…

October Glossybox. Contains Spoilers

For those of you that have never heard of GlossyBox, basically it is a monthly beauty subscription. For £10 a months plus postage  (works out about €15) you get 5 beauty treats. There is normally 1 or 2 full size items and then 3 travel size. You can order it on a rolling subscription or pay for a few months up front. It is my little surprise to myself every month. Sure if I don’t treat myself and all that. Septembers GlossyBox Septembers GlossyBox was my first ever beauty subscription box and to say I was delighted would be an understatement. The products were unreal. I actually gasped when I…
