Roccabox X Pretty Ugly Collaboration
I do love a beauty subscription box. Containing some of the latest and greatest products on the market, they also allow you to try before you buy the full size version â€“ double win!
This month, sees the launch of Roccabox (quite possibly the most beautifully presented and packaged subscription service Iâ€™ve ever seen) and the teaming up of bloggers and beauty insiders to showcase some of their most highly regarded handbag essentials. Taking the spotlight for April, Iâ€™m very excited to announce that I collaborated with the brand and have handpicked some of my very own hair, makeup and skincare essentials – all yours for Â£10â€¦ keep a look out for my cheesy grin on the flyer too…
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
John Frieda Original 6 Effects Serum (full size)
The ultimate multi-tasking hair serum. Cannot recommend this enough â€“ Iâ€™ve been using it for YEARS. I smooth it through damp hair before blow-drying for heat protection and frizz control, but I also run it through the ends of my hair after tonging it, to seal in the waves and stop them dropping out. Oh and it smells dreamy too!
Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer
I first discovered Smith & Cult in the US, in the form of their super luxury nail polishes, so when they came to London AND launched lips, I was more than a little excited. I recently reignited my love for a gloss (it doubles the size of your pout), and this one smells like candy floss. If you get my favourite shade in your box (The Lovers), then Iâ€™d love to see a photo!
Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Polish
The ultimate nail brand, who hasnâ€™t heard of Nails Inc?! Forever my favourite polishes, the gel version gives serious staying power to your mani, without the need for a UV lamp like other gel versions. My all time fave is the shade â€œMayfair Laneâ€™, keep your eyes peeled for this, it’s the perfect dusky pink.
Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy
If you never use a hand cream, then scold yourself immediately. Hands take the biggest beating from continual washing and drying – and theyâ€™re also one of the biggest giveaways of age. Keeping them hydrated is a tip I took from my mum years ago, and so always have a little pot of this Crabtree & Evelyn in my handbag. This has quite a masculine scent to it, which I love!
Kure Bazaar The Natural Pedicure Ritual
If you follow me on Instagram (@prettyuglypics), then youâ€™ll know Iâ€™m a huge fan of a face mask. Second to my face though, I love to give my feet the odd pampering treatment and this foot variety is perfect for a girlâ€™s night in. Great pre-holiday too, it smoothes away dry skin, heals cracks and makes feet look far better in summer sandals. Goodbye trotters!
