Glossybox- December 2014!

Hello dears!
Well, this post is nearly 2 months late since it's nearing February already (how did that happen!?), but let's skim over that and get to the more exciting stuff...

Which is, of course, the Christmas 2014 Glossybox!

It wouldn't be a themed Glossybox without the pretty design, paper and specifically coloured ribbon of course!
Though I must say, the items in this box are rather delightful too- especially when there's four (yes, four!) full-sized products inside! Another notable mention here is that as soon as you lift the lid off the box, there's a delightful smell coming from the hair products. It's so fresh and lovely that you can't help but soak it in!
Item number one here, is listed as a "Handbag hero" and is Bellapierre Cosmetics' Cheek & Lip Stain. It's a very creamy, yet blendable product, and in a very pretty coral shade- though I personally am wary of using creamy products on my cheeks so will stick to popping it on my lips! It's also very soft and light to wear on your lips, so there's no need to worry about that either!
This little pot is a full size product- 5g- and can be picked up for £12.99 on Bellapierre's site.

Coming up next we have the box of hair product that provides the gorgeous smell! It's a box of Renewal Hair and Scalp "60 Second Treatment Shots" which are basically hair masks that you leave on for 60 seconds after washing your hair, before rinsing it off again.
You get a box of 4 of the 15ml tubes for only £5.50 (bargain!) and you can find them on Tresemme's site!

Next up we have Anatomical's "Zap! Zap! Zap! Gets That Chap. Day and Night Spot Stick". It comes in a cute little box which even features "spotgirl" who is ready to zap your spots away! The product itself has two different formulas- one for day, and one for night, which you apply directly to the spot as needed, and then leave it to work its magic!
This product was also full size, and costs a mere £3.79 for 7ml, and can be bought over on Asos!

Right before the finale, we have a polish brand that I hadn't actually tried until now! Introducing essence, with a Colour & Go polish. It's supposed to have a quick drying time, though I gave it a quick go last week and was a little disappointed to find it wasn't fully dry after an hour-or-so and got a few pillow-printed nails (sad times!). I must say though, the shine on the polish was absolutely gorgeous on the unaffected nails, and I hadn't used a topcoat, so I must show you this polish asap!
What makes it even better, is that it's only €2.99 (£2.23) for 8ml! You can grab one from

Spot the last product? That's right, the SkinPep Collagen Hydro-Gel Face Mask! This face mask is said to be great for dry skin and those wanting an anti-wrinkle product, as it moisturises and plumps the skin to minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles- not bad, huh?
You can grab a box of 5 of these face masks for £19.99 from SkinPep.

So that's everything in the box!
Despite containing 4 full-sized products, they really weren't that expensive, and the whole box came to a total of £28.50
The products themselves are actually very decent though, and I'll definitely use them all at some point, so I'm not complaining! If you want any more info about any products, drop me a comment and I'll get right back to you.
Otherwise, I shall see you very soon, and I hope you all had a great Monday (or as great of a day as a Monday can be...)

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

Finally, the time has come for the ever-promised "Barry M Gelly Polishes Review & Swatch" Post! YAY! Now, now, settle down, settle down, and prepare yourself for an image-heavy post!

Okay, so that picture isn't too great. But there's the colours that between us (Me and Rhian) have in the Gelly range. We're only missing "Grapefruit" I think...

Swatch Watch: OPI 'Sprung'


Wooo time got away from me for a couple of weeks. Has it really been so long already? My apologies to any of you who have been eagerly waiting for new swatches (I know I have)! To make it up to you I've got a swatch for you today which, in my opinion, is pretty "in season" right now. I'm talking about the Rose Gold trend that's been going on for a year or two now - who would of known it would become so popular?

Today's nail polish is: OPI 'Sprung'. It sounds like it should be a spring green kinda colour... but nope! This polish is a beautiful rose-gold kind of colour with a perfect amount of shimmer to be classy and sophisticated. Don't believe me? Here it is!

Fact File:
Brand: OPI
Polish Name: Sprung
# of coats: 3 + (applies quite thin)
Finishing Texture: Smooth, shimmer
Cost: £3.10 at the time of writing, on

So I paired this polish with this gel-finish dotty topcoat... thing. That sadly, has no name, and was bought by my roommate…

Avril "Mille et une nuits" #32*

*This post contains an item sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Here it is a nail polish by Avril, called "Mille et une nuits" - No32.

Hello folks!

How are you all doing? How am I doing? Where am I? Who am I? So many questions...

To answer a few... I hope you are doing fine.
Yes, I am fine thank you.
I am in England, once again. For a long while this time.
I am Rachel, as always. And I have been missing from the blogging world for a couple of months.

The past 2 weeks I have spent job-searching (with success, yay!), catching up on Suits, and binge-watching Scandal. I want you all to go and do some homework and watch Scandal so I have somebody to talk to about it. Seriously.

Anyway, a few months ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by Avril - a french beauty brand which pride themselves on not testing on animals, and ensuring any of the ingredients used are also not tested on our furry friends. I highly respect this, and think that all companies should follow their …
