August 2019 Glossybox unboxing: The Birthday Edition

[This is not a paid post, but it does include affiliate links which are marked with a *]

Isn’t there something deliciously exciting about awaiting a Birthday Edition beauty box? I don’t know about you, but as soon as I see the word ‘birthday’, my mind is suddenly transported to a place of sparkles, happiness and the most gorgeous beauty products.

As soon as I saw the design of the August 2019 Glossybox I knew I was going to be in love with the contents inside. A pink holographic drip effect lid filled lovingly with the most special products of the year yet.

I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Glossybox and couldn’t help checking my street through the window to see if my postie was on his way. As soon as I heard him arrive, I went skipping across the patio to retrieve my box of delights! I was especially excited about one product in particular: the Hude Beauty Lip Strobe. It was the first product I reached for and within minutes I was adding a slick of the gloss to my lips.

I couldn’t wait to sit down and film my unboxing video to share with you – I hope you love discovering the box as much as I did.

The August 2019 Glossybox is absolutely beautiful – it contains some really gorgeous products that I’ll enjoy making good use of. You can subscribe to Glossybox yourself by clicking here.* It’s really worth it for a cutesy monthly treat. Enjoy!

August 2019 lookfantastic Beauty Box: The Heatwave Edition

The lookfantastic beauty box was gifted
[This is not a paid post, but it does include affiliate links which are marked with a *]

This August 2019 lookfantastic Beauty Box is bringing a real zing of colour to my office this month. Nestled inside the bright tangerine box, six gorgeous beauty goodies await.

This month, the focus is on beautifully warm summer days and the products that will see us through them ever so stylishly.

I’m a huge fan of the summer beauty boxes and tend to find myself getting giddy about the products inside. There’s just something so refreshing about the vivid colours and gorgeous smells that are synonymous with summer!

As well as containing a whole host of beautiful, summery offerings, the box also has an exclusive: a Bellapierre Heatwave Highlighting Palette which is pretty darn gorgeous. The buttery formula of the highlighter shades are an absolute dream to apply and are also multi-purpose. Not only do they add a gorgeous sheen, but they also add a pop of colour to a spotlight eye. If you want to get your hands on it, you’ll need to get hold of the August 2019 lookfantastic Beauty Box here*, so snap it up quickly before it sells out.

This month, I was joined by my beautiful little Alfie as I filmed my unboxing. He’s been my loyal companion even more so since being so unwell. Isn’t it amazing how our pets have such amazing intuition?

I adore this month’s beauty box and feel like lookfantastic are flourishing. Love the look of the products in my video? Shop them below and enjoy!

Friction Free Shaving Gift Box review and discount code

There’s nothing I love more than a luxurious pamper bath where I can primp and prep my body until I’m silky smooth, nourished and feeling brand new. Imagine my excitement when an email dropped into my inbox from the lovely people over at Friction Free Shaving (FFS) asking me if I’d like to review their gift box – yes, please!

First of all, FFS is an amazing company that create beautifully designed razors especially for women. I’m sure many of you will agree with me when I say that men’s razors have far exceeded the female offerings for many years. I soon learned that most women’s razors were not for me when I struggled with razor burns, nicks and less than smooth shaves constantly. I quickly started to favour the Mach 3 – much to my dad’s irritation when he realised his fresh blades had already been claimed. Oops!

Friction Free Shaving Gift Box review and discount code

As well as selling a beautiful gift box, FFS also run a subscription service. When you sign up, you’ll get a gorgeous razor handle (you can choose between silver and rose) and a set of 4 blades all for £9 (I have a discount code for you to get 25% off later on in the post!). Then it’s down to you to decide how often you’d like your blades – monthly or every two months. Your blades will arrive through the post just in the nick (ha) of time ready to be changed.

FFS also offers a fantastic Blade Recycling scheme, simply log onto their website and hit the ‘Recycling’ tab to request a pre-addressed post bag to return your used blades.

Do you know what I love the most about FFS though? You can actually have your name engraved onto your razor handle! How wild is that? (I was way giddier than is normal when I found this detail out, and even worse when it actually arrived).

Friction Free Shaving Gift Box review and discount code

So, back to the gorgeous gift box that I received! The box is £27 and contains:

  • The world’s first metal razor designed especially for women
  • FFS award-winning Shave Cream, packed with moisturising Manuka honey, Shea butter and coconut oil
  • FFS Pre Shave Scrub, a gentle and all-natural exfoliate made using the husk of walnuts
  • FFS Post Shave Balm, which provides deep hydration to soothe and condition your skin
  • Four German-engineered razor refills, each with 6 diamond-coated steel blades and a styling bikini blade
  • Shower hook, Blade cover, Clamshell Blade Protector and Travel pouch

You can take a look at my unboxing video and review below to hear what I think about the FFS Gift Box in more detail.

I absolutely adore the whole branding and tone of FFS and of course, I adore the products too as you can see from my video. However, I was extra thrilled when the FFS lovelies offered me a discount code to share with my readers and YouTube subscribers. You can use my discount code to get 25% off blades and free engraving when you subscribe to Friction Free Shaving.

Subscribe here and use the code RACHAEL25 for 25% off *

The discount code excludes the gift box shown in this video, but you can find it here if you’d like to shop it as a special gift* or just for yourself!

Unboxing the lookfantastic x NEOM limited edition beauty box with my mum

The lookfantastic x NEOM beauty box* couldn’t have arrived at a better time for me. After being so unwell for a number of months and really struggling to get restful sleep, the lovely ladies over at lookfantastic HQ knew just what I needed. I was absolutely thrilled to receive a beautiful delivery containing this stunning limited edition beauty box.

I’m a huge fan of self-care and pamper time – especially when I feel unwell, and thought that this was such a beautifully thoughtful gift to receive.

As lookfantastic and NEOM state, nothing affects how you feel more than a perfect night’s sleep. The products within this box are all specially created to rejuvenate and awaken the senses containing 100% natural fragrances.

I always love to share the contents of my beauty boxes with my mum, so I waited for her to get home so we could enjoy discovering the products together.

The box is priced at £45 and is worth a staggering £110! If you’re already a subscriber to the lookfantastic Beauty Box, you can click through to the early access email and shop your box for just £40. Also, if you subscribe today you can also get the box for just £40 with the code BBNEOM.
