So todays NOTD is Barry M's Textured polish in Ridley Road, which is a lovely mint green colour.
I really like the texture of this polish it is different to anything I have tried before. To get good colour pay off I would say you will need at least 2 coats of the polish.

This polish was £3.99 it also comes in 2 other shades which I think I will have to buy my self soon as each of the colours are great for spring.

March Glossybox!....

March already can't believe it! This month the packaging has gone back to the normal pink box, black tissue and pink ribbon. :)
The theme for the box this month is City Chic, I love this theme as travelling is a passion of mine.
So above you can see all the products that came in my box this month, each item is from a different city around the world.
First up is the Nails Inc polish, the colour I have been sent is St James which is a bright red. ( It could be called a pillar box red ; P)  

I applied one coat of the polish to my nails and that has covered my nails beautifully. The colour is very vibrant and with a top coat over the top leaves nails looking lush.

The full size polish is £11 and that is for 10ml. My sample is 4ml which makes it worth £4.40. I really like getting nail polish samples as it lets you try before you buy which is great :)

The next product I received this month is the Tresemmé Salon finish extra hold hairspray. I have used this product before and from my experience it is a good hairspray it has a medium hold on the hair and can be brushed out easily. The smell is pleasant which I really like in a hairspray as I don't like the alcohol smell. The packaging is sleek black with accents of hot pink.
I don't think I would class this product as high end but as I know it is a good hairspray we will let Glossybox off :) 
The full size of this product is 500ml for £4.69 so it is really affordable which is great as I go through a lot of hairspray. My sample is worth 93p and is 100ml.

When I saw this next product I was super excited as I have heard it raved about for months. It is the Elizabeth Arden Eight hour cream and the one I have is Fragrance Free. This product has been around since 1930 and has been loved by many for years.
The texture of this cream is more like a balm it feels quite waxy. But as soon as it goes on the skin it sinks in and moisturises the chosen area.  I have a few dry patched on my face and over the next week or so I will be applying the cream to these areas to see if the clear up :)

On the leaflet about the products it says that the eight hour cream can be used on the face, lips, hands and cuticles which makes this product super multi purpose!

For 50ml of this product it is £25 which would make my sample worth £3.50 for 7ml.

Surprise Surprise another perfume sample, I love trying new perfumes but when you get such a small sample its a little disappointing that said the perfume I have received this month is the Juicy Couture La La. The smell of the perfume is nice enough but I don't think I will be rushing out to buy it.

It is quite an expensive perfume 100ml is £63 which makes my sample of 1.5 ml worth 95p.

The final product in my box this month is by the brand Jelly Pong Pong and is a lip blush. (stain) There isn't a name for the colour I was sent but it is a pinky berry colour. I have never heard of this brand before but after trying this product I might look into their other products.  

It feels quite moisturising on my lips which is nice and it has stained my lips rather well.

This is a full size product and is worth £12.

As an extra to the theme this month we were give an little book which containing information about different cities around the world. I really like this and can tick off the cities I have already been to :) In the centre of the book there are some sticker with different saying about travelling on them!
So to conclude I really like the theme for the box this month and most of the product in it. 
The total for worth for this months box is £21.78, which again is above the £10 I pay for the box!

Did you get a Glossybox this month? 
What did you think of what you got?

Simple Cleansing Face wipes....BzzAgent Review.

So I have been chosen to take part in my second Bzz campaign. Bzz agents is a website which enables you to take surveys and depending on your answers take part in new and exciting campaigns.

The product I have been sent is a pack of the new Simple face wipes. These face wipes have been previously released and I have used them for years as they are the only face wipes which don't react with my skin. For the new release they have made the wipes softer and thicker for healthier skin. After using this product for the past two days I have decided that I love these wipes just as much as the original ones. I am not sure I agree with the fact they are softer than the original but that is just my opinion. I really like the honeycomb pattern on the wipes it holds lots more of the cleanser which removes much more make up.

I am going to continue using the product and I will update if my opinion changes. At the moment I would give this product 5/5. It has been one of my beauty must haves for years and will continue to be!

A pack of 25 wipes RRP's at £2.99 which isn't bad as one wipe will remove all of your make up in one use.
If you find you have sensitive or dry skin these wipes are great and you should try them out. Available at Boots, Superdrug and most other drugstores and supermarkets.

March Wish list...

Wow its March already!! I managed to get a few things from my February wishlist but not everything. I have had a fall in my funds this month so will need to try save more money.

First up I really want to try the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation, I think I will be the lightest shade as I am super pale at the moment. This foundation is £8.99 and can be found in Boots and other drugstores.

Next is the Clinique bottom lash mascara in black. I have seen many Youtuber's raving about this product. Most mascaras I used always seem to end up with fallout under my eyes which is a pain, the Youtuber's I have seen using this mascara say it gives no fall down which would be great for me. The wand is so tiny too its dead cute! This mascara is £11.99.

Finally thanks to all the cold weather we have been having my skin is super dry and needs moisturising. I have quite sensitive skin so the Simple range will be good for me as it is for sensitive skin. The one I want is called Kind to Skin Hydrating moisturiser. I have used simple products before and loved them so I will definitely be giving this a go. I love the make up wipes they are a god send! The price of this moisturiser is £3.79, which is a great price for my budget.

So there you have it, my March wish list. Hopefully I will be able to get at least one of the items of my list :)

Do you have anything you want in the month of march?
