November Pink Parcel 2018.

Hey there! So time for Novembers pink parcel, if you dont know pink parcel is a monthly subscription service that you can time to arrive at the same time that you have your period. You can choose the tampon or pad that you like most, and then you get 2 boxes & one bag of the said pads or tampons, along with a small box of goodies! which always includes a tea bag & chocolate.

Ive gotten pink parcel for over a year, but sadly i think this will be my last pink parcel. Im going to switch to a different beauty box i think, the pads are extremely helpful but i think in the end ill just start buying them again, because the boxes of goodies have been just not up to it, along with late boxes and having my boxes spoiled by the pink parcel adverts on social media.

With all that said, lets show you the pink parcel for November!

So first up we have the tea bag for this month, Dr stuarts skin purify tea £2.35 (for 15 we got 1). Im not a hot drinks person, so i dont tend to have these really.

The chocolate is one we have had in the boxes before, the monezumas milk chocolate crunchy peppermint mini bar £21.99 (for 26 we get one). This chocolate is really good! but, we have had it before which is a bit sad though, but it is yummy.

Next up we have the skin republic x olivia buckland prep + glow sheet mask £5.49, this is classed as a full sized item, but its another sheet mask. We get a sheet mask from pink parcel pretty much every box, and i have to be honest i am quite bored of them now! this sheet mask, honestly seems like most sheet masks.

Next up we have the Loella fab brow brooke angled eye brows brush £4.99, we dont get brushes very much so yay for this! its a rather thick brush however, i dont really know what to use it for.

We have a technic eyeliner, the RRP is £1.99, i was rather disappointed to see technic in here, its not the kind of thing id expect to see, this is a basic black khol eyeliner, i cant find a link for it for some reason! haven’t tried it yet so i dont know what its like, but these eye liners tend to be not amazing.

Skin & Co roma truffle therapy whipped cleansing cream £30.00 for 150ml for 30ml, this is a really really rich cleansing cream, i squeezed some out and tried it on the back of my hand and it is like body butter! interested to try this out, but it may be a tad too rich for me.

Balance me Travel size congested skin serum £10.00 (7ml) is our last item, this had actually leaked a little bit and my whole box smelt like this serum! obviously because its a serum, i dont really have much to say about it, apart from the fact that it smells very herby.

So there you have it! my last pink parcel, i will be going for a different beauty box instead, so look out for that next month!

Mask Time September 2018

Hey there! so last month i wrote about this brilliant face mask subscription box called mask time that i was sent to review and i was lucky enough that they sent me the a box this month as well!

Mask time is a monthly subscription box, full of korean sheet masks, plus a little added skincare extra every month. You can choose the glow starter box (which is the one i have here) which is £9.95 and for that you get 4 sheet masks and the skincare extra, or you can go for the glow setter box which is £24.99 and contains between 8-10 sheet masks and the skincare extra. Mask time is a brilliant subscription box if like me you love doing face masks a lot, its so handy! its very interesting to see all these new interesting face masks, plus in every box you get to learn a korean word which is a lovely little special touch.

This months box is all about soothing your skin and healing any irritation summer may have left.

Anyway shall we look at what masks i got this month?

I love the packaging of korean sheet masks they look so interesting, they have marketing down for sure!

Aool pore & spot care mask rp £3.50 – they have managed to make a spot look cute! anyway, this mask uses ulmus davidiana root extract(which google tells me is a small tree) as it is brilliant for boosting the skins hydration levels, and it is also anti-inflammatory & photoprotective! (helps protect against the sun). this mask also contains pueraria lobata root extract (this seems to be a flower in the pea family) which helps brighten and lighten pigmentation caused by acne scarring etc. i havent used this one yet but i will be soon! i do have my fair share of scarring so it sounds perfect for me.

Dr. plus banana milk mask rp £4.00 – oh boy! so this mask is meant to smell exactly like banana milk, which means i am actually going to pass this one onto my mum because i actually really dont like the smell of bananas, buts thats ok because my mum loves it. So the milky essence helps to balance water content in the skin helping it retain moisture, and lactic acid helps reduce pigmention (lactic acid is an acid exfoliater  i spoke about earlier this week!) acne and sunburn if you have managed to get a bit burnt.

Proud mary ceral pore mask pack rp £3.95 – has soon as i saw this mask i was curious, chestnuts? but indeed, chestnuts! so chestnut extract is meant to help improve the texture of the skin, while you have peppermint leaf extract giving a cooling sensation and helping to balance oils with lavender extract to help combat bacteria healing any open spots you have and helps prevent new ones!
A pieu icing sweet bar sheet mask watermelon rp £3.00 – this mask caught my eye as soon as i spotted it, icing? ice lolly? face mask? what?, but, this mask contains deep sea water to soothe and moisturise and watermelon extract which is rich in vit c, amino acids and lycopene, which cleanses the skin, exfoliates and promotes cell regeneration! i have used this mask and it was lovely, my skin really drank it up and it felt very nice and soothing on the skin.

The skincare extra this month is a little sample of plustem UV perfect block essence, which is spf 50. There isnt much english on the packet so i cant tell you much! but spf makes sense, this box is all about repairing any damage you did in the summer, last thing you want to do is do more damage!

Overall im really happy with this box, mask time continues to impress me i really like everything ive seen from them!

I was sent this free of charge to review, this does not effect my opinion.
