Review – My Little Box

Since March I’ve been a receiver of beauty surprises that My Little Box delivers on a monthly basis. At that time I was new to the monthly beauty box idea and didn’t realise there were so many out there, the main ones that pop to my head are Birchbox and Glossybox but there are so many more out there that it’s getting harder to pick your favourite. I bet there are tons of women out there subscribing to more than just one.

So, for some reason I selected My Little Box. Maybe it was the beautifully designed website featuring illustrations by Japanese artist Kanako Kuno, or maybe it was the elegant Parisian feel to the whole presentation of their product offering that appealed to me.

Success! So this is what I wore: first from the left:

Review – YSL BeautĂ©

It’s Touche Éclat blur primer by Yves Saint Laurent in a beautiful luxurious golden packaging: Continue reading “Review – YSL BeautĂ©”

Environ skincare

A beauty therapist friend of mine introduced me to Environ skincare products more than a year ago and although I got distracted I’m now regularly on that skincare regime and have advanced to AVST 5 with my daily moisturiser (explanation below). The reason I went back on it is because I started developing pigmentation marks on my forehead and cheeks and Environ products are known to assist in improving uneven skin tone and appearance of sun damaged skin. Here’s my story :/ : Continue reading “Environ skincare”
