DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Review- GlossyBox & She Said Beauty

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is an amazing product and I’m happy to finally be getting round to this review. I first recieved this product in my GlossyBox and was blown away with how well it worked. It lived up to what it said it would do without a doubt. DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is an amazing cleanser from Japan, it thoroughly dissolves dirt, excess oil and color cosmetics including your waterproof mascara as well as other pore-cloggers ordinary cleansers leave behind. Rinse it off with water and your done leaving your skin fresh not greasy.

“With skin this clean, your toners, moisturisers and other skincare products work even better to give you the youthful complexion you deserve. Discover the secret that Japanese women – known the world over for glowing, ageless skin – already know: Beautiful skin begins with DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.”

 

 

If your in need of a great make up remover then you need this, it takes your make up off your face at the end of the day with no fuss, no scrubbing and leaves your skin feeling beautifully soft and clean. There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning with make up clots in your eyes or panda eyes from make up that has refused to come off. You wont have that with this product and I know that for a fact as it I use it to remove my waterproof mascara as well as my other daily make up it really is a wonder product. She Said Beauty also sent out a sample of this in their September box so some of us are lucky to have another sample before we buy.

Beauty Box : She Said Beauty September

Its that time of the month again, time for She Said Beauty to dazzle us with their box of goodies. What will be in it this month do you reckon. Last months box contained a bit of everything, it had something for your hair, face and fragrance … what more could you ask for?

If you want to see what’s up for offer this month then take a look below:

 

  • Ginvera : Ginvera Green Ta Marvel Gel – Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel works by targeting the cornified skin layer, dissolving and removing the dead skin on the top most layer. Gentle yet effective exfoliating action zeros-out blackheads painlessly and helps remove deep layers of dead skin you’ll be shocked at the results. Once the dead skin barrier is removed, the new skin underneath is revealed. It helps prevent pimples and controls oil secretion to help you stay shine free. I love Ginvera products I can’t wait to see how this one works.
  • Collection : Primed and Ready Soothing Make Up Primer – I have so many primers and so far although their are plenty of alternatives none have lived up to MAC Prep+Prime for me. Could this be the cheap alternative that does just as good a job. The formula for the COLLECTION Primed & Ready Smoothing Make-up Primer glides onto your skin, providing a light coverage for a flawless complexion, and a noticeably natural finish. Guaranteed to minimize problem pores, smooth uneven skin and hide unsightly blemishes, this multi-tasking primer makes make-up application effortless and keeps your complexion smooth and flawless all day. Whether you’re blending foundation, securing sumptuous lips, experimenting with eye colours or going bold with blusher, you can be confident that your canvas will remain crystal clear.
  • Collection : Fix Me Up Long Lasting Make up Fixer – There is nothing worse than a great night out or a hot day at the beach but nothing worse than your make up lacking staying power. For make-up that stays put  COLLECTION Fix Me Up Long Lasting Make-up Fixer is coming to the rescue, it secures your make-up in one misting motion. From the minute you’re ready to the moment you get home, you can half that fresh made up look. Guaranteed from dusk ’til dawn, without a worry of washing off, fading down or patching up. This non-stick, weightless make-up setter offers any budding beauty a ‘barely there’ sheen for the ultimate in luminous finishes. No matter how stressful your day, this beauty BFF will be on-side to stay-away any un-wanted imperfections, giving a long-lasting flawless finish. I hope this lives up to the hype with the heatwave that is predicted this week.
  • DHC : Deep Cleansing Oil – DHC Deep Cleansing Oil This amazing cleanser from Japan thoroughly dissolves dirt, excess oil and color cosmetics – even waterproof mascara – and other pore-cloggers ordinary cleansers leave behind, then rinses completely off with water, leaving your skin fresh, never greasy. With skin this clean, your toners, moisturisers and other skincare products work even better to give you the youthful complexion you deserve. Discover the secret that Japanese women – known the world over for glowing, ageless skin – already know: Beautiful skin begins with DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. I received this in my GlossyBox last month and all I can say is what a product. Review to come but I’m so glad I have more.
  • Amie : Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask – A wonderfully refreshing deep-cleansing mask that draws out deep-seated dirt and impurities while soaking up excess oil and helping prevent blemishes. Containing natural extracts of lime, peppermint and French white clay, it cools and refreshes, leaving skin feeling really clear, clean and smooth. Natural anti-bacterial, zinc oxide, helps reduce and clear spots and blemishes. Not a bad fragrance, I like the ingredients and hope it will do what it says, I’ll happily give it a go.
  • Popchips – Well food in a beauty box this is a first, never fried, never baked. popchips are popped with heat and pressure to make a naturally delicious crisp with all the flavour and less than half the fat of fried crisps, fewer calories and none of the fake colours or flavours (or greasy fingers) that gives snacking a bad name. and by the way, there are less than 100 calories for more than 17 crisps in each single-serve bag.

Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve Review ( She Said Beauty August)

Time to review the Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve received in my August She Said Beauty Box, this is petroleum-free, 100% natural ultra-moisturising intensive lip salve.

It can be used daily to plump, protect and smooth away dry patches on lips and leave them feeling soft. They have blended super hydrating 100% natural hyaluronic acid and highly emollient and protective pharma grade lanolin to plump and smooth; a trio of organic shea, mango and cocoa butters to soften and protect against the elements.

Vitamins and essential fatty acid-laden rosehip, jojoba and virgin coconut oils to soothe and hydrate with rose otto, rose geranium and palma rosa to calm and balance.

 

An amazing product which you should definitely try especially if you have lips that get chapped easily. This soothes dry lips easily and is perfect  to keep in your handbag as well as take away with you on holiday. With 100% natural ingredients you can’t really go wrong. The salve is easily absorbed into your lips, perfect for wearing under lipgloss but not the best for wearing under lipstick in my opinion. Also the smell of this is lovely it really is something than you have to try for yourself.

Beauty Boxes : She Said Beauty August Box

Last months box made She Said Beauty even more popular after bowling over the competition with such an amazing box so this month everyone is bubbling over with excitement to know what they have for us and if its going to top the previous months box. What is it you’d like to be getting this month?… Perfume, Make up, Face & Body beautifiers ?

Well here is what the August Box has to offer:

 

Inside The Box

  • 4711 Eau de Cologne – 4711 Original Eau de Cologne is one of Cologne’s oldest internationally famous brands or so its said I’ve personally never heard of it. For more than 200 years, it has delivered on its promise: using this unique fragrance refreshes the mind, body and soul. The secret formula for 4711 Original Eau de Cologne is still appreciated across the globe today, making this ‘aqua mirabilis’ an unparalleled classic. Comes in a cute bottle but don’t know if I’d use it.
  • Absolutely Flawless Nail Foils – 32 Nail Foils for Finger or Toe Nails. No Drying time. Easy to apply. No Chipping. Over 130 designs to choose from. Haven’t heard any great reports on these but would love to hear your opinions.
  • Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve – Balance Me’s new, petroleum-free, 100% natural ultra-moisturising intensive lip salve. Can be used daily to plump, protect and smooth away dry patches on lips and leave the soft. They have blended super hydrating 100% natural hyaluronic acid and highly emollient and protective pharma grade lanolin to plump and smooth; a trio of organic shea, mango and cocoa butters to soften and protect against the elements. Vitamins and essential fatty acid-laden rosehip, jojoba and virgin coconut oils to soothe and hydrate with rose otto, rose geranium and palma rosa to calm and balance. I love the Balance Me products so I can’t wait to try this.
  • Redken Color Extend Radiant-10 – New Color Extend Radiant-10 is Redken’s first dual-phase, color-preserving formula designed to meet the needs of color-treated hair. A combination formula of a nourishing cream with the lightness of a spray to deliver 10 transformative benefits: stronger, protected, moisturized, detangled, softened, nourished, vibrant, manageable, frizz-free, shiny. I wonder if this lives up to what it says it can do.
  • Nails Inc – Nail The Day – Nails inc nail polish is formulated with the latest professional technologies and are created for women who demand uncompromising quality and instant results. Fashion is at the heart of nails inc and as a result has become one of the leading brands in the UK, with an ability to switch on the latest shades and trends. I love nails inc products, they do have great colours so this wouldn’t be the first time I’ve used their products.
  • Papier Poudre – These Absorbent powdered face papers have been around for years. I’ve had these before in my Luxbox which I loved, what do you think of them?
  • White Glo Professional Choice Toothpaste – Professional Choice – Australia’s No. 1 whitening toothpaste. The original formula designed to gently lift stains and discolouration from teeth using micro-polishing particles. Hmmm toothpaste in a beauty box never tends to go down well unless its the flavoured one I tried which was amazing.

She Said Beauty Box – July Review

I can’t help but be excited about this months She Said Beauty Box, there is such a variety of great products to choose from that no matter what box you get…you can’t really loose out. I’m still awaiting for the arrival of mine to see which products I have received but I see no harm in letting people know what’s in them in case they want to make a last minute order. So that’s your warning, if you don’t want to know what’s in the box for July 2012 don’t look below the picture. You have been warned:

  • Eden : Natural Nail Polish Remover – A break through in nail care this great product is scented with a hint of lime, it removes nail polish easily and also comes in a recyclable bottle. This super product made in England will leave your nails and cuticles moisturised unlike the usual dehydrated nails we associate with our usual polish removers. Eden uses biodegradable food-grade and plant-based ingredients that are non-toxic and non-carcinogenic making it safe for everyone including children, pregnant women and those undergoing treatment for illness to use. Eden is also suitable for vegans and is the only BUAV-approved natural nail polish remover on the market. Please note: Eden is not for use on gel polish such as Gelish and Shellac or polish applied to false or acrylic nails. Only problem I’ve heard of this so far is the sample size is a little on the small side.
  • Freeze 247 : IceCrystals Anti-Aging Prep & Polish – I’m hoping this product is in my box, this is an incredible skin resurfacing treatment that retextures, illuminates & rejuvenates skin, you’ll find that healthy glow return to your face as the product  improves circulation & the production of elastin & collagen. It is clinically proven to give skin a smooth, even finish by reducing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, sun spots, surface roughness, excess oil, hyperpigmentation & enlarged pores. Fingers crossed I get to try this wonder product.
  • LaylaD Natural Beauty : Honey Moisturiser – Perfect for dry, damaged skin that needs a pick me up. This moisturiser is the perfect blend of pure organic honey and coconut oil, it states that using it every morning should heal and nourish the skin. A light texture with the motto that a little goes a long way and from what I hear of the sample size it better be true.
  • Miners Cosmetics : Love Phat Liner – A chubby black pencil perfect for creating that smokey eye look, can be used as a liner, definer and all over pencil. I’m not sure on this product yet but if I receive it I will review it.
  • Miners Cosmetics : Bronzer and Blusher Blend – Create a natural looking tan with Miners Bronzer Blend, designed to leave your skin with a gorgeous sunblushed glow. Sunblushed is a tonal mix of brown and pink, the brown creating a bronzed base while the pink creates a rosy flush to the skin. This I would try although I’m not a huge fan of bronzers.
  • Murad : Time Release Blemish Cleanser – I love Murad products and I have my fingers crossed that this is in my box, now you can fight two stubborn skin concerns at the same time with the first patented time-release Anti-Ageing Blemish regime clinically proven to reduce blemishes while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Talk about a multi-tasking product, the high-performance solution includes an innovative anti-blemish treatment technology that work even after you rinse it off. Breakouts and wrinkles won’t stand a chance.
  • Stylefile : S-File – S-file’s curve follows the shape of the nail making filing quick and easy, even when using your non-dominant hand. I can’t say I really want this but I’d give it a try.
  • Vintage Cosmetics Company : Eyelash Curler – Stainless Steel Eyelash Curler’s that curl your lashes, good if you need one.
  • Trilogy : Instant Bronzing Gel –  Fuss-free, quick drying and easy to apply, Instant Bronzing Gel provides an immediate golden glow that develops into a rich bronze tan over two to three hours. Develop a safe, sunless tan and enjoy instantly bronzed skin with our 100% natural self-tanning gel. This unique formulation combines Caramel from non-GMO Cane Sugar for an instant glow with a natural ECOCERT self-tanning ingredient to develop a safe, natural-looking tan. Light-reflecting mineral Mica leaves a subtle shimmer, while Aloe Vera soothes and hydrates and antioxidant-rich Vitamin E helps to fight free radical damage. Use to enhance your evening wear or to maintain a gorgeous, golden glow all year round. Might be a good product but since is trial size be careful you don’t look patchy.

Smokey Eyes – Smashbox Masquerade Palette & The Vintage Company Lashes ( She Said Beauty Box )

Smokey eyes are perfect for a date night or even a night out with the girls, its also a look that can be used with many different colours and easily updated. I went for greens and browns this time no blacks were needed and I only used basically one palette. I also added the lashes from my She Said Beauty Box will have to review.

Face

Paul & Joe’s Moisturising Primer N

E.L.F. Corrective Concealer

MAC Select Moisturecover – NW15

E.L.F. Tinted Moisturiser Spf 20 – Porcelain

E.L.F. Blush – Pink Passion

 

 

Eyes

Urban Decay Primer Potion

Smashbox – masquerade palette ( flesh colour, green and all browns)

Benefit Eye Kohl – Onyx

The Vintage Company Lashes – Gracie

MAC – Mascara x

 

Lips

Bare, nothing

I will do a review for theses lashes as the lashes were lovely but the glue they came with was way too watery and there wasn’t much “stick” hence my lashes coming off.
