Seascape Island Apothecary Peppermint Lip Balm Review

I must admit that I am obsessed with lipbalm and must have at least one with me at all times. I had never tried any products or heard much about the brand Seascape Island Apothecary before trying this lipbalm, but what really grabbed me was their values and that their products are free of nasties, such as parabens, SLS, silicones, petroleum and artificial colours and fragrances. They are also against animal testing which is a huge bonus!

This lipbalm contains 100% natural peppermint essential oil with Jersey beeswax, Jersey honey, and Jojoba seed oil which are all locally sourced in Jersey. The first thing that caught my attention was the adorable packaging which is perfect for sitting on your dressing table! Personally I don't think that it is very travel friendly as the glass pot is weighty and it's also not very hygienic to apply this on the go without washing your hands first. For me, I love applying this lipbalm at night before going to bed.

When your finger comes into contact with the lipbalm, it instantly melts into a luxurious oil which feels lightweight and refreshing on the lips. The peppermint leaves a sensation on the lips when applied, but fades after time. If you're a fan of lipbalms which are thin and feel as if there is nothing on your lips, then you will love this! It has an irresistibly silky feeling which leaves your lips smooth and hydrated. You can also apply this under your lipstick for a smooth finish and to help it last longer. I do think that £10 for a lipbalm is a bit expensive, however a little bit goes a long way and the pot lasts for ages! I think that it is the perfect pick me up for the lips!

Have you ever tried Seascape Island Apothecary products before? What is your favourite natural lipbalm?

Glossybox August 2013

This month's Glossybox has the theme 'High-Flyers' which is filled with products that are perfect for on the go. There are even products included that are from Sweden and Brazil to go along with the theme. Not only that but all the products are under 100ml - so are perfect for taking on board!

All the way from Sweden is this sleek eyelash curlers which are developed with professional makeup artists and claim to have a special curve design to suit all eye shapes without touching your makeup base. They're definitely the best curlers that I have tried and the most expensive, however when I use it, it does touch my eyelid but not as much as other curlers. I love that you don't need to apply much pressure to get perfectly curled lashes and it also comes with three extra rubber pads. For a value of £20 I am really impressed with Glossybox and it just completes the box, however personally if I was to spend £20 on curlers I would definitely get the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers.

This multi-purpose balm is a cult product in the US and even Beyoncé and Megan Fox are fans of this little tube. It is clinically proven to help support skin's own regeneration process and is perfect for very dry or cracked skin. I'm actually really curious to try this on my feet and heels to see if it will give me baby soft feet!

I love using treatments in my hair and this treatment shot really grabbed my attention. You just leave it in for 60 seconds and rinse out and should transform your frizzy damaged hair into beach goddess hair. This is perfect for using in the shower for a quick pick me up on those rough hair days!

This makeup remover pen from Brazil is not yet available in the UK, which is a shame because it is a genius invention! You can throw this into your bag and you'll always have perfect makeup. It's perfect for touching up your makeup and removing smudged mascara or lipstick on-the-go. It's even good for cleaning up those raccoon eyes from the leftover mascara that has smudged overnight.

This creamy crayon is the perfect multi-tasker for travelling that can be used as an eyeliner or smudged and blended out as an eyeshadow. I received the Plum shade which is really pretty and I would definitely wear it as eyeliner for a subtle pop of colour and a less harsh alternative to black.

What was your favourite product you received in your beauty box?
