Look Fantastic Beauty Box June #LFJetsetter

Guys, I STILL haven't cancelled my Look Fantastic subscription, I think I'm obsessed! Even when I think that individually I probably wouldn't pay £2 for most of the samples, I still spend £15 a month of it. I think it is the element of surprise, and the fact that all the boxes have been winners so far...

This is from June and probably the one I'll use the least of...

Tan Organic Self Tan Oil - not sure if I'll use this as I've never tanned in my life, but I might give it  go...

Caudalie eye cream - I have never used eye cream in my life....

Cowshed hand cream - Hopefully I'll get round to using this, I have hand creams stuffed in every nook and cranny in the flat...

Naobay moisturising cream - not sure if this is face or body, will have to give it a google!

Korres shower gel - I'll definitely use this I reckon, always room in my away job bag for a nice shower gel!

Magik BB cream - looks a bit dark for me, but I'll swatch it and try anyway!

Mr Blanc tooth strips - I'm most excited about these! I love the Crest ones, so we'll see if they live up to it!

I'll report back when I've used them all up and let you know how they go!

Beauty Treatment of the month - Lash tinting

When I first got my grad job, one of the first things I treated myself to was getting my nails done properly, because having been a poor student for forever, I thought I'd see what the hype was about. Two years later and I'm still going to the same salon...

I was looking at the brochure a few weeks ago and looked at all the various treatments I would love to get done, and decided to take the plunge. I also decided to do this new series to document my trials, and to show people who haven't had something done before what the results are and whether it is worth it - one thing I found was that I really didn't know what to expect, so hopefully this will help some people along the way!

I go to Eastern Arts in Southampton, so my experiences are based on that, but I think most things will be pretty standard whatever salon you go to!

I picked lash tinting this month as I thought it would be perfect for my holiday. Being ginger, I have quite light lashes, and have to wear mascara or I look terrible. I thought if this worked then I wouldn't have to bother with make up all holiday. yay! 

I have actually tried lash tinting with the at home kits before, but thought the professional results would be completely different - I was entirely right...

My treatment was performed by Tina (who also did my nails, toes and eyebrow threading in that session - wonder woman!) who was so lovely and talked me through everything. 

I asked for black but was told they do a blue black tinge as it makes your lashes pop - I wasn't sure what the difference was, but trusted the pros.

The process is actually very simple - Tina put some Vaseline on pads along my lash line to protect my skin, and then put the dye on. I relaxed with my eyes closed for 15 minutes until she came back, took the dye off, and hey presto!

I am so so in love with the result. It will last two weeks, and I definitely think I'll go back and get it done again! It has made me feel so much more confident not wearing make up out of the house, so on that note, I'll leave you with a make up less selfie to add to this already face heavy post!
