If you haven’t heard of this box before it’s a beauty box aimed solely at beauty bloggers. It’s put together by a fellow blogger called Vix Meldrew it is available here. It’s £10 including postage so amazing value. July Blogger Box was no exception.
First up in July Blogger Box is 4Y2 Cosmetics, it’s a family run American brand. This brand should be launching in Autumn this year in the U.K. Unfortunately as its not yet for sale I can’t find a price but it is being marketed as an affordable range which makes me think along the lines of MUR or MUA although I might be wrong.
It’s worth mentioning 4Y2 is a PETA approved brand so is cruelty free. I have got 01 in Selfie which is a warm nude. It’s a creamy satin lipstick which is super pigmented as you can see. It does need reapplying but that’s true of any creamy lipstick. I found Selfie to be quite moisturising. There are 14 shades altogether in the Lipaholic line by 4U2. I’d happily buy more shades if it’s in the drugstore price range.
Next up is I Love…who do a range of affordable shower and bath products which are stocked at Boots. I received the Raspberry and Blackberry bath and shower cream which smelt exactly like jam! It lathered really nicely and I quite liked smelling like a Cupcake Doll (if you remember them..). 500ml products are usually £2.99 so really affordable, I can’t wait to try out the coconut version.
Derma Babies is a new brand to me maybe because I’m not a mum or child. This is priced at £8.70 and is an oil infused with raspberry, coconut and oatmeal essential oils. You use in the same way you’d use a body oil but as this fragrance is quite light I think that’s why it’s aimed at mums and babies. That said I will happily use this as I love body oils.
Nanogen is another new brand to me. It’s a heat activated product and is free from SLS/SLES, parabens and formaldehyde donors. Root Boost contains keratin, lifting polymers and natural sea salt. I have tried this out a few times now just roughly spraying my roots before drying. This doesn’t make my hair feel horrid like some boosting powders which is great! I did notice some slight volume but not a massive amount. This might be down to my hair being quite long though as that’s usually the case.
I’ll happily keep trying this but I’m not sure if I’d pay £9.99 for it yet. The one thing I’m not a fan of is the alcohol smell although that does go once my hair is dry.
So I have had Fab Little Bag before so you may have seen me say previously I don’t really have a need for them thanks to the implant. I do think they are a fabulous idea though. I’ve tested opening and closing a bag with one hand which was easy to do. So you get a pack with some bags in and refills are available as well.
Fab Little Bag can be bought from a few places such as their own site or Waitrose priced at £1.99 for the handbag packet with 5 bags. The refill has 20 and is £2.99. If I needed them I do think I’d buy these to be honest.
July Blogger Box is a great box as in this months just the Root Boost covers the cost of the box! Hats off to Vix for organising another fabulous box.
