In My Mailbox




So you guys are really liking my In My Mailbox series so I'm going to keep it going for a while. I really love watching unboxings on Snapchat and Youtube and seeing as I don't have a channel, I'm giving you a blog post instead. I do unbox all my parcels on Snapchat (Alicea89) so make sure you're following me there too. This isn't me showing off, I want this to be more like a quick and nosy post so please do let me know your thoughts in the comments. I've received everything in this post the last couple of weeks so stay put and grab a cuppa...





I've been using Blank Canvas brushes for a while now, admittedly I only had a couple in my stash but from what I've tried so far, the quality is fab. Half way through January I had a little brush bundle arrive in the shape of these three beauties. Each of the brushes come in a pretty, metallic finish, all three are face brushes and the bristles are dense, super soft and prone to a lot less shredding than most. They apply makeup flawlessly and anything that can make my foundation go on like silk in the morning is a winner. 

I've dabbled in La Roche Posay skincare in the past with the Toleriane Ultra being a firm favourite. The Effaclar Purifying Micellar water is aimed for oily, imperfection and blemish-prone skin. It gently cleanses the skin by eliminating impurities and excess sebum while leaving the skin feeling clean and fresh. The Anthelios range consists of various products that contain high protection against UVA & UVB rays, it suits all skin types and smells amazing. I don't know about you but I like my sun protection to remind me of summer.

One of Sleek's newest launches is focusing entirely on brows. The Brow Intensity retails at £8.50 and features a mascara wand like brush with a sponge tip while the other end has a creamy highlighter. It's the perfect multi use brow tool for at home or on the go. The product is long lasting and smudge proof making it great for wet and windy England. The highlighter cream is a gorgeous shade too.

Dr Bronner's uses a combination of organic ingredients to create a soap that produces a velvety-lather and leaves the skin silky-smooth. The soaps can be used for so many different things from washing your makeup brushes to cleaning your face, body and hair; The list is endless. The Hemp Rose has a  blend of natural essential oils and all the oils and essential oils are certified organic to the National Organic Standards Program. It is all packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles too. I've loved using this so far and will definitely be picking up some more in TK Maxx.

Have you tried any of the above? What do you think?
