Friction Free Shaving: Razor Subscription

Ladies! Fed up of your normal razor coursing irritation from the high street? This fab and first of its kind razor membership gives you everything you need to stop this. From as little as £3 a month you can get your new razor and blades delivered directly to your door.

Each box is extremely cost effective and comes with a razor and four blades, with the idea being you change your blade once a week. In recent studies it is said that 94% of women fail to change their razors on a weekly basis! I believe this is mainly because of the cost of your average high street blades. This friction free shaving pack gives you a quality metal handle in a choice of three colours and your fresh cartridges to change each week. As bacteria on old and blunt razors can course skin irratition it's essential to change our blades each week and definitely more hygienic for us. 

Changing the blades is so simple and you pop your new blades in with a quick click and go. This new subscription service makes shaving easy and affordable. It starts from £3 a month with their "Faye" Razor which is white with two blades in each head, £5 a month Razor "Frankie" which is Pink with three blades per head and this gorgeous Rose Gold Razor the "Samantha" with five blades per head costing £7 per month*. There is also an option to do this every two months if you feel you don't need to shave as often as most. 

So come on ladies lets shop the ment that we can really follow the rules and change our blades weekly with Friction Free Shavings cost effective monthly membership service located in the UK. Visit today and don't forget to let me know your favourite razor in the comments below. Can't wait to hear what you think to this fab service.

Perfect Winter Candles: Kiss Air Candles

Are you looking for some perfect Winter and Christmas Candles? Then look no further! Kiss Air Candles have released a brand new festive range of five candles which are perfect for this time of year. I was lucky enough to be able to pick two candles from their new range to try out and share with you.

As you can see from the pictures above I went for Gingerbread as this scent always appeals to me in a candles and Christmas Tree which is Christmas perfection. They also have released Choclate Orange, Cranberry Orange and Mulberry Spice which also sound incredible. All candles are infused with amazing fragrances that gently fill the room when lit, they are not too overpowering but leave a warm festive feeling. These are the Large candles which sell for £8.50, they also stock travel candles (£5), votives (£2.25) and wax melts (£1.25).

Kiss Air Candles are handmade here in the UK, made with natural soyabean wax. They look amazing in their gold tin packaging and cute labelling, burning for approximately 25 hours each. As a company Kiss Air Candles stock over 25 scents in their normal range and are 100% Vegan, below you will see a list of some of their amazing scents. 

All their candles including this Christmas range are available on I personally really want to try their Toffee Apple, Sun-Kissed Raspberry and Black Cherry candles. Do let me know in the comments which Christmas scent you would go for and your favourite Christmas candles for this amazing season.

November Birchbox: Skinny Dip Edition

November Birchbox arrived with a collab with Skinny Dip London. We did have the opportunity to upgrade this months box to include an amazing looking phone case, unfortunately as I have an older phone (iPhone 4s) they didn't have mine or I would have done this deal for £4 extra. I do adore the outer box this month but I believe we are in for change next month, perhaps a Birchbag again? Exciting. I do hope this is a permenant change as different bags are always useful and will possibly fit through the letterbox each month. 

First impression when I opened the box was 'grrr' lots of small samples sizes. But actually there are two full size items this month from Birchbox. That's one thing I like from Glossybox is that you feel with the full sized items you get better value for money, what do you think? But I do adore the Birchbox points system and love spending them.

The first item I picked out as it was the one I was most excited about was the Beauty Protector body lotion! I have receive a couple of Beauty Protector items before and I'm obsessed with the scent. Beauty Protector range is also exclusive to the Birchbox shop. Full size £8.

I have lost count of how many Mascaras I have received in Beauty boxes since I started a year ago, I have to say they aren't my favourite thing to try out unless it's a fab brand like Benefit. I had the So Susan featherlash mascara in my Birchbox this month with an RRP of £18. Which sounds great value to have in your box but I'm not sure they are worth that much to be honest as the packaging always comes across cheaper on So Susan and Jelly Pong Pong products which are their sister company. 

Another item I was disappointed with but a fab brand was the Lord & Berry mini lip liner. I adore products from this brand but find the clear lip liners to be pointless for me myself. I have tried out a Loreal version and found it did nothing, I would much rather apply a coloured liner. Full size £9. 

I had two products in my box from brands I have never heard of with the Delarom Creme Acquaconfort (full size £34), and the Pure & Light facial exfoliator (full size £25). I'm not a fan of receiving skincare sample really as you can't get a proper feel for what they will be like with longer use on the skin. Plus with my skin being ultra sensitive and prone to reactions I have to be careful trying out different products. What's your favourite skincare brand? I'm loving Nip & Fab and La Roche Posay.

And lastly in my box the other full sized item was my Beauty Treat of Thumbs Up Rosa Nail Wraps worth £6.99. Which are fab when your in a rush to quickly do your nails for instant results. 

So not a fabulous box but it's ok, I always love doing my surveys on the products to gain my extra Birchbox points. It makes up for if you are disappointed with the box as you sort of get half the spend of the box back in points to spend on whatever you like. Do you save all your points up for a big haul or spend them often? 

As always I will look forward to the Christmas edition and can't wait to get my bag I have seen in the sneak peek. Not signed up yet? Sign up through my Referral link here and you and I will gain an extra £5 worth of Birchbox points on top of what you already get. Always a fab deal even if you only want the one box (especially the festive edition.)

November Glossybox

Exciting times when Glossybox arrives and all subscribers receive a full size Revlon Lippie! Of course I did know this was going to be in my box, it was no surprise as we had an email asking us to pick our shade! But How Bloody Fab! Revlon super lustrous lipstick RRP £7.99. 

Our email asked us to pick from four fabulous Revlon shades, so I went for something completely out of my comfort zone and different from anything I already own in Black Cherry. It's an extremely deep berry shade which for me will be used lightly, perhaps tapping it on with my finger to apply. As you can see from the swatch below you can gain different intensities with this lipstick, on the left is swatched once and on the right with a second layer. 

Next was the MUA eyeshadow palette in the shade Undressed. This is a palette I already own and think is great value at only £4. It's not a palette I reach for a lot as I have so many other fabulous palettes but I think it's an amazing first palette to try out. As I already own this item it will join many other products in my #JinksyBeautyGiveaway that I hold on my Twitter and Instagram. If you don't already please do follow me on over on them so you don't miss out.

I also had some Eylure false eyelashes in my box this month, which personally weren't for me so have already gone in a giveaway. I'm not the best at putting on lashes and don't really need them as I do have long lashes already, I would prefer more wispy lashes or individuals perhaps. These were a full size product which is fab, RRP £5. 

So the first three items were all full size and the next two are deluxe travel sized. The Emite diamond heart primer is a blurring fluid used underneath makeup to balance the skin tone, boost radiance and smooth out the skin. The fluid itself is a peach shade which blends clear almost instantly. Full size costs £25.90. 

Lastly is the Royal Apothic cream creme body creme which to me looks and smells very old fashioned for me personally. I adore the Aveeno body creams and oils which are great for adults and kids with sensitive skin and really do hydrate as well as help with certain skin conditions. Full size of the Royal Apothic creme is £14.50. 

So overall not my favourite box I have received to date but the Revlon lipstick is just fab. I would say it's a great overall box with the variety of products, perfect for someone who doesn't have as many products as what I have. (Obscene amount!) 

What are your thoughts on this months Glossybox? I do think this is the calm before the fabulous beauty storm though as next months Christmas edition sounds incredible. The fabulous Beauty Blogger Really Ree is guest editor of a Rose Gold collectors edition box for the festive month. Eeekkkk...soooo if your not signed up yet, you really must. And if you want to I would love you to use my referral link so they know you heard from me! O and I may earn some fabulous Glossydots also, which are great for saving up for free boxes and you can gain Glossydots to from your purchase and surveys of each product. Any questions feel free to message me on here or my social media accounts. I can't wait for next months exciting edition.

November Flamingo Candles: #TheMeltCrowd

Always a pleasure when my Flamingo Candles #TheMeltCrowd box comes through the letterbox, one of my favourite subscription boxes to receive. The Melt Crowd box is only £10 a month including p&p and literally fits through your letterbox, so no trips to the sorting office to pick up a missed parcel.

The month of November has to be my favourite box so far, I love every single scent. I'm so excited that Christmas scents have edged their way in there and can't wait to see what's in next months box for Decemeber. Flamingo Candles have recently released their fabulous All that Glitters range for Christmas 2015 which sound fab, I'm hoping to smell some of these at The Clothes Show Birmingham when I attend next month. Are you going?

As usual we receive a handy information card showing us the fab melts we received this month and stating which are exclusive to The Melt Crowd box. This month our exclusive is Warm Vanilla Sugar melt with Bah Humbug and Christmas Tree-O melt previews, so this box is really a fab way to get the new releases and special melts first. I have to say Christmas Tree-O is one of my favourites.

So the melts included in Novembers #TheMeltCrowd box are:
Blackberry & Bay Leaf
Blackcurrant Jam
Bah! Humbug
Darjeeling Tea
Warm Vanilla Sugar
Parma Violets
Christmas Tree-O
Violet & Lime
