Westfield London haul & February Glossybox Review

Hi girls :)

Yesterday I've visited Westfield White City in London and got so many new things! My first stop was Inglot store. I never know where to look first because there are so many colours everywhere. I didn't plan to buy anything, just to look around but there was this young male sales assistant who was really knowledgeable and didn't stop talking :D He showed me almost everything and I ended up buying loose powder in shade #11 and Cream Concealer in shade #34.

My next stop was LUSH where I picked up the legendary Lemony Flutter (I love it by the way!). I had 5 black pots which I could exchange for fresh mask but I don't like to use their face masks so I've asked if I could get some discount towards the Lemony Flutter (not whole £5.75 of the mask price) but I was said it is not possible :(

I also visited Superdrug and Boots in case they would have some bottles of Max Factor Fantasy Fire but they didn't. But what they did have was the White Barry M Foundation which will be great for making some of my foundations a bit lighter to suit me better. I also got a very generous sample of No.7 BB Cream for Dry/Normal skin.

My next purchase was Bliss duo including 200ml Daily Detoxifying Facial Toner and 197ml Fabulous Foaming Face Wash at Debenhams. This was an amazing deal! RRP was £46.10 and I purchased it for £13.83!!! I had a look on Bliss stand and the Foaming Face Wash alone was sold for over £18!

It wouldn't be me if I wouldn't pick up some nail polishes, right? I got KIKO glitter polish #231 which was on sale for £1.50 and then shade #254 for regular price.

My last and longest stop was at Twinings tea bar. I love tea so I've spent there about an hour chatting about tea and tasting different types. I bought three loose teas - Yunnan (black), Traditional English (black) and Gunpowder Green and Mint (Green tea and Mint) and small tea infuser.

 So that's all my purchases :)



When I was visiting House Of Fraser, look what I found at Deborah Lippmann stand - Mermaid's Dream! This is just one coat and I wanted to buy it straight away (despite the £14 price tag) but they didn't have any left :(


February GlossyBox

And here is my February GlossyBox! I wasn't overly impressed with this one...quite disappointed actually. The only thing I'm keeping is the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap in Hemp Citrus Orange. My Paul Mittchell item is for curly hair and since I have very straight hair, this is a miss. Next item is DuWop Venom Gloss - I don't wear lip glosses so this one goes to swap box too, I won't even try it. Then there was a BM Beauty loose eyeshadow in kind of a lighter 'sweet sienna' shade. Very nice but I have sweet sienna which is much better pigmented. Last sample is INVIGORATING Lotion from COMO Shambhala. Too much of lavender in it :-/ (yes, I'm fussy about smells :D)

Despite being dissapointed with this box, I'm not complaining because I had it for free by redeeming 1000 Glossydots.

    1. Hi G., the Lemony Flutter from Lush is great! It smells like fresh lemons and it melts into a rich oil. Really nice.
