November Glossy Box

Woohoo my first glossybox arrived and I absolutely LOVE it!!






It came with..

Jurlique purely age-defying ultra firm & lift cream (sample size)
Bio Oil (full size)
Essie meet me at sunset nail polish (sample size)
Mirenesse 3D forever gloss (full size)
Lily Loves Pearl rejuvenating facial exfoliant (full size)
Jellybeans (nom nom nom)

I am so impressed that it came with not one, not two but THREE full size products. I was going to compare glossy box with the lust have it sample boxes but glossy box is a clear winner in my eyes (sorry lust have it!).

Have you subscribed yet?

My Skincare Routine

I'm trying desperately to perfect my skincare routine leading up to the wedding and so far I've found some products I'm in love with and some others that are so-so. I was going to wait until I perfected my skincare routine before sharing it with you but then I thought hey.. you may be able to recommend some amazing products to me so why wait!

I do mix things up occasionally when I try new things from my sample boxes but generally these are the products I'll use..


If I go to the gym before work, I'll use Garnier's caffeine eye roll-on under my eyes so I don't scare off people when I get there haha. I don't wear this on a regular day though because it peels off when I put my foundation on which is annoying.


In the shower I use the Pevonia Botanica cleanser for combination skin. This is one of those so-so products. It's an okay product, but isn't worth the price ($67) in my opinion.


..and use it with my Clarasonic Mia - which I LOVE and has made my skin super soft!


After my shower I spray the Pevonia Botanica lotion (aka toner) for combination skin directly onto my face. This is nice and refreshing but again not worth the price ($28).


Once that's dried I use my all-time favourite product.. b.liv's off with those heads blackhead gel. This stuff is amazing! It's THE BEST at getting rid of pimples and little bumps, I can't live without it.


After that I put on Neutrogena's healthy defence daily moisturiser, I like this moisturiser for day-to-day because it's SPF 30+. I think I'll need to get another matte moisturiser though for the wedding and to wear at night because this one doesn't photograph very well.



I use MAC's cleanse off oil to remove my eye makeup, I don't use it on my face because it breaks me out. It's also not very good at removing my makeup, but I don't want to waste it so I'm using it up before buying something better to replace it with.


I use Cetaphil on the rest of my face. Cetaphil is my go to cleanser, it's great for removing makeup and is gentle on my skin.


Then I use Kora's luxurious rosehip oil, which I think is okay. I really love rosehip oil but I prefer the endota spa one cause it's alot cheaper and gives me the same result.


After that I use Avon's Anew clinical eye lift. I was really hoping I would love this product (because I've heard such great things) but I don't. It makes my eye sting and water up (hence why I don't use it in the mornings).


I then pop some Avon Anew clinical derma-full on the rest of my face. I like this product but probably won't repurchase it because I don't LOVE it.



2 or 3 times a week I'll use Clean & Clear's deep action in-shower facial. I use it in the morning after I've cleansed my face using my clarasonic. I LOVE how it makes my skin glow and would recommend it to anyone.


When my skin is feeling irritated, I'll use one of the EmerginC hydra-repair capsules (before bed). These were NOT cheap ($90) but were a saviour when my skin when crazy a few months ago (alot of breakouts, redness & dry patches). I wouldn't repurchase though unless my skin went crazy again :)


Once a month I like to use a cloth mask, at the moment I'm using B.liv's immerse me silk masks.. but I tend to try new ones all the time.


So there you have it!

Let me know what you think and if you have any product recommendations for me I'd love to hear them!

Our Trip to Jervis Bay

















We had the most amazing time in Huskisson! I sooo did not want to leave. I'm seriously considering moving there in the future, the atmosphere is so relaxing and everyone is super friendly. We went for a walk from white sands beach to hyams beach and took a dip there afterwards. The water was so refreshing, especially in 34 degree weather. That's one thing I hate about canberra.. there are no beaches!

I love everything about huskisson! Who knows.. maybe one day Rob and I will own a B&B there (hey.. I can dream can't I?). In the meantime, I highly recommend staying at a B&B called Ceespray :)

Lust have it box #4

Hey guys sorry for the lack of posts lately, I've been battling a cold and feeling a little sorry for myself. I'm starting to feel better today though and wanted to share with you what I got in this month's lust have it box.





It came with samples of..

RoC complete lift daily moisturiser
Nude by Nature lip liner in chique
Lancome tresor midnight rose
Hawley International miracle nail shiner
Kerastase nectar thermique

My favourite product from the last lust have it box was by far LimeLily Cosmetics cream blush (in harmony).


I've been using it everyday since I got it. I absolutely love it!

As mentioned in previous posts, I was going to compare the beauty box with the lust have it subscription for you, but now that glossybox has taken over beauty box, things have changed a little. So instead I'll order a glossybox for 3 months then compare it to the lust have it subscription :)

I'm super excited to see what the glossybox comes with! I can't wait to receive my first box!
