A week of pampering and treats awaits

Right so its that time of the month where we all are awaiting our beauty boxes, now we had a fantastic Joliebox and a not so great Glossybox with some good and some bad points in it.
Now while we all cheer on our olympic and paralympic athletes me included

Ive been on a bit of a hunt for some bargins and well i went a bit mental on them really but hey all us girls need it once in a while. So now whilst im at my ebb of taking my fingernails off chomping at the bit awaiting my boxes i decided to have a look in latest in beauty and oh dear .... they released a collections section. Now to those new to Latest in beauty the do luxury samples for a fraction of the cost plus a little beauty box for just postage charge and you choose 3 samples.
So they usually do a editors choice box which is like the limited editions you get with beauty boxes you can see whats in it and decide if you wish to purchase it, this has now evolved into Collections so you have the editors pick choice still but added is mother and baby, summer essentials, around the world and also wedding prep.
Now the first to go live was the Editors pick section with a box from Aveda, 2 went on sale within days of each other. Either the Damage repair set or the Smoothing set, each had the same body products but different hair care.
So i purchased the Damage repair set as my hair is so dry, so this was £14.95 incl postage so a steal
So will be exciting to use this as ive heard brill things about aveda.
So my next goodies were from my fave brand REN skincare, they were doing an offer if you bought anything on the site you would get the travel size of the shampoo and conditioner they have now released in full sizes plus you still get your 2 samples with your order.
So as my Muslin cloths are my favorite product and im forever using these i get the 10% off as well so all i paid for is the cloths and postage with the rest being free. Major bargin off REN skincare.
Now i also had a splurge on a murad set that was a steal i mean valued at £56 with RRP £26 and i got it for £12 it was too good not to and i use Murad products so im keeping this for winter when my skin really suffers with the cold.
Really is pretty so no wonder everyone is eyeing up this baby !! lol
Final purchase i promise every girls weakness Makeup, Now MUA was having a bank holiday special if you spend £10 they gave you a false lashes, mascara and a eye dazzle.
So I bought a foundation, colour palate another dazzle dust in green, eyeshadow in light pink and a liquid pen eyeliner. The palates are such good value for £4 and ive heard nothing but good things about this brand. Now i used the foundation and eyeliner plus mascara in the picture above of me with pride and i must say the coverage and result is exactly how i like my makeup to be.
By all means leave a comment to how you think my look is :O)
My biggest makeup bargin is this Benifit Flawless foundation over half-price down to £9.99
Plus from the same company i got this for free
My last bargin was a blind bag off a facebook run makeup company called the makeup bag, i love using this company as the price is fantastic and it never fails with quality.
So till beauty box's next week !!!
