Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you.

In terms of getting rid of fatigue it does brighten the skin but mainly hides any dark circle or dark patches on my face.

Now does it last 24 hours? No, it lasts about 5 hours then it needs a touch up. The foundation could possibly if you desperately needed…

Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara - Review

Hello,

This week I will be reviewing a mascara I have recently been trying. I am a lover of volume and big lashes. I am against wearing false lashes but I want my mascara to give that almost false lash effect. There have been a few mascaras that have met that and I have been wanting to try out some new ones. The most recent one I have picked up is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara from Boots.

The mascara claims  
Scandalous Brush: So big yet so precise, our MaxDensity™ brush reveals lashes you never thought you had. 30% wider and denser, with more bristles to capture and coat even the smallest lashes. Combs through clumps for perfect definitionThe mascara comes in a bright orange packaging which personally I am not a fan of for me it looks cheap and nasty. The mascara is meant to comb through clumps however I noticed that occasionally there were still clumps even after endlessly using the brush to comb them out.

The mascara does give some volume I wouldn't say it is the best mascara in t…
