Guest Post anyone?

A & C: hope you’re having a lovely Saturday! We just thought we would put a question out there, asking you all if anyone would like to help us out with a guest post? Annie is off on her holiday next week for two weeks and as you followers will know, we post everyday – which is a lot of work for one person, so would anybody like to help Chloe out? We would love to hear from you! #twolittleowls

Aprils Birchbox: Chloe’s Box

C: both myself and Annie received our Birchboxes on Saturday, and although we usually do a joint review we both actually received different items this month so we are going to do our own individual posts. So here’s my Birchbox:

Image

The theme this month is “Good Enough to Eat” so all products contain ingredients that “would fit just as nicely in your kitchen as they would in your bathroom”. I really like this idea, and it is always good to use natural products where possible.

The first item I noticed in my box is this massive 250ml bottle of Tommyguns Pomegranate and Orange Flower Shampoo which is full size and retails at £5.50. It is always nice to receive a full size item in a beauty box and I am so excited to try this, it smells AMAZING.

Next up is THEBALM Cosmetics How ‘Bout Them Apples Cheek & Lip Cream in the colour “Pie”. The packaging of this is gorgeous and I haven’t used many cream blushes so I am looking forward to trying this. I am not sure how much each individual colour in the palette weighs, so I am value-ing this sample at around £2.

I then received the Aquamarine Azulino Color Club Gala’s Gem’s Collection nail varnish which is a gorgeous pearlescent pale blue. I love nail varnish, so a new addition to my collection is always welcome. The set of 4 costs £15 so this is worth around £3.75.

Snuggled in the corner of my box was the One Love Organics Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm which is described as a multi-tasking balm for cleansing, moisturising and removing make up. Can’t wait to try this bad boy, I love trying out new skincare brands. The full size version of this is £30 for 39ml so this is worth £11.54!

Last but not least is the Lord & Berry Silk Kajal Kohl-Liner in Black. You can never have too many eye liners, and although quite small this would be perfect for slipping in my hand bag so I am happy to receive it. Full size is £10 for 4g so this is worth about £1.50

I also received a bag of Propercorn as my Life Style Extra which was a lovely addition to my already amazing box which would cost 90p! Bargain! I have already eaten this… it took a lot of self restraint to not eat it before I took my photos!

Overall I really liked this months Birchbox, it contained a good mix of make up and skin care and included several brands that I had never heard of before. The items in my box were also worth a total of approximately £25, which makes it definitely worth the £12.95 (including postage and packaging) that I paid for it!

If you would like to sign up to Birchbox please use this link and we will both receive £5 worth of points to spend on the Birchbox website! Please also keep an Annie out for Annie’s post on her Birchbox, we will also post about individual products in more detail once we have had time to test them properly! #twolittleowlsblog

Leighton Denny Nail Polish: A Review

C: I received this product in my Birchbox this month and was super excited about it. I love getting a full size product (especially when they are £11 and my whole box didn’t cost much more) and I needed a new black nail polish. 

Image

I used the nail varnish to create this nail art look, using the dotting pen that I have mentioned in my previous nail art posts and a white nail varnish. I really liked this look and thought it was classy and yet fun!

Unfortunately (as much as I dislike giving negative reviews) this nail varnish really wasn’t for me. The application was lovely, it had a smooth glossy finish and dried quickly… but it chipped within an hour! I was really surprised by this so had a look at some other reviews online and they were raving about Leighton Denny Nail Polish and how long lasting they were. So I painted my nails again without using a top or base coat to see if it was those that this nail varnish disagreed with but once again my nails chipped within a couple of hours. I am super hard on my nails and chip them really quickly, but I had left them to dry thoroughly and had only been doing some work on my laptop so it was very surprising! 

Has anyone else tried a Leighton Denny Nail Polish? Let us know your opinions or whether I just got unlucky! #twolittleowlsblog
