LookFantastic SEPTEMBER beauty box - Birt'day edition!

After waiting a little longer than usual for the special birthday edition of this months LFbeautybox it is finally here, i spent days screaming at the post woman everytime she came * Wheres my parcel!!??*, relentless scrolling through my emails for THAT despatch update and now i can chill out and enjoy my goodies :-)

I'm always like such a little kid when i get any parcel but with this i think even more so because the front of the box is so pretty and when you open the box you have the layer of tissue paper to unwrap too haha so lets see what we have got! (LookFantastic.com)


Before i even got to the goodies ♥_♥ a whole load of discount code cards was waiting for my loving affection right on top, some included GHD, ALL SOLE and MY BAG. Even if you dont personally shop at this places, christmas is coming and it could be an idea to buy something and get an added discount for a loved one.

HAIR CARE

Lets start with all things that are good for your hair!

This is a hair saviour! I mean if you colour your hair a lot
like i do, it can be hard to find a shampoo and conditioner which
penetrates through the hair and gives it that soft feel. My hair used to get so
stringy and tangled as i have dyed it so much and until i found
the right hair care to use it would never get soft!
I used this and it has left my hair soft even when i brushed it through
there was no knots, so im going to carry on using this and see what happens!
 
 #PHYTO keratine leave in conditioner
Now im not sure which one i had so i had to go all Sherlock Holmes 
and im pretty sure i have a leave in repair mask...it is called phytokeratine and 
i used this along with the shampoo and conditioner from the box
and the whole concoction made my hair so smooth. Even just 
putting this on my hand i could feel how soft it was and it smells divine.

FACE CARE

Right now i do have the smoothest face on earth as i used all the face
care products last night but this one really stood out among the others
not only because i kid you not, it smells like...amoxacillin!! You know when you was a kid? The banana, yellow coloured medicine? It smells just like that
and that is one of my favourite smells ever! This was
a great cleanser and left my face feeling soft!

I have been looking for this my whole life,
the little beads that help exfoliate the skin and get rid of
impurities are so soft but also do the job. Now at beauty school of course you learn
you cant use a body exfoliater on your face
especially under your eyes as the particles are too big
and end up doing a scratching movement
rather than getting into the skin and removing the dead
skin cells etc. So this to me is the perfect little face
scrubber and it smells gorgeous, i will 100% be repurchasing this. It has left my face feel
so clean and soft.



So this little bad boy is a serum which helps to hydrate the skin and
also make you feel fresh. I put this on before i put any moisturiser
on and after i had washed my face. It did have a soothing feel to it and 
also the smell again was beaut, it felt very thin on the skin
and that is what i like about it. You know it is there doing its
job but not making you feel like you have sticky skin!



TAN

This moisturiser which includes shea butter is meant to
extend the life of your tan.. natural or bottle? im not sure
but i will be trying it with my fake tan soon and see what happens
ha, it contains carrot and seaweed which sounds healthy
so even if it doesnt work im still getting 2 of my 5 a day
, right?......

Let me know what you thought of the products
and if you have used them in the comments below!

Much love,
Sarah

Are you looking for a place where you can sit for hours on end without feeling like you are being eye-balled by the staff that you have over stayed your welcome?

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin! These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel . The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of hone

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o
