April Purrfect Box Review

You know your're doing something right when your cat starts to receive her own mail.

I was recently contacted by the team at Purrfectbox asking if I (and my cat) would like to review a one-off April subscription and of course I had to say yes, I am all for spoiling my cat and this seemed like another lovely opportunity to have a bonding session with her since it's all about the little things.
The Purrfect box (£19.90 inc delivery) is a monthly subscription box that you can receive every month, each month being a different theme and in each you get 5-6 top quality toys, treats, grooming tools, food and training products and what's good is that it's custom made just for your pet because you fill in both your pet's age, breed and fur type. You know that everything in the box will be used and nothing will go to waste which is great!

What's In the box?
Perfumed Dragonfly Toy
Jolly Moggy Bag of Catnip
Trixie Salmon Paste
Biospotix from Biogance
Sisal Ball
Spider Toy
Thrive Complete Meal Cans x2
Tuna Cubes Treats

There are options to suit all pet owners out there! You can either go ahead with a yearly subscription, go for a monthly subscription or even buy a one-off box if you want to just try it out and see if you want to commit.
Unboxing this with Shonu was so much fun and what's funny is that she kinda knew it was for her! I blame the catnip! Hahaha. It was definitely hard to capture her whilst she was rolling around in the contents and running around with the ball but these lil moments felt so special. 
My favourite items from this month's box was the cute polka dot dragonfly toy and the Biospotix which are flea treatment drops. Shonu, however seemed to prefer the food and toy items, oh and the catnip!
The amazing thing about Purrfect box is that they also contribute finance towards helping less fortunate animals by providing them with better and happier living conditions. Love the look and sound of this box but have a dog? then you'll be happy to know that they also make the same subscription boxes for dogs called Pawsomebox which you can check out here
As a cat owner/lover I found this box to be not only fun but a great help too! I know that everything will be used and well, eaten! The Biospotix has also assured me that my cat is flea-free and in good health! A star product from this month's box. Shonu certainly felt spoilt and was alot happier, a small price to pay for those lovely felines. I couldn't recommend this subscription box enough and lastly I have got a special £5 off discount code for you, simply type ukb28ozz whilst checking out and you'll be able to enjoy a box just like I my cat did!

Montagne Jeunesse Amore Rose Face Mask Review

Montagne Jeunesse face masks are always something I pick up and use in my pamper sessions. From the cute and informative packaging to the lovely range of natural ingredients, it's a favourite for many!

Product description
Calming oils from Damask Rose petals and deep cleansing Marula Oil combine to hydrate and smooth the skin. Shea Butter and Cocoa butter moisturise and deeply cleanse to leave skin soft and silky smooth. Use weekly.
Featured ingredients
Shea Butter from Ghana and Cocoa Butter from North Africa & South America, provide an ultra deep cleansing formula. Both rich emollients used for their moisturizing and soothing properties.
A natural moisturising agent hydrates & smoothes skin. Fragranced with a blend of Rose Geranium and Damask Rose essential oils, harvested in Asia and North Africa.

I spotted this in my local Poundland and I instantly added this to my basket. This particular sachet had two masks! I have never tried either of the masks so I was excited to try it.
I opted for the Amore Rose mask for my pamper session and it truly was such a pleasant mask, I actually liked it so much that I will definitely go and buy the full sized sachet. I can also confirm that it's added to my Montagne Jeunesse favourites, now here's why...
Once I opened the packet, the smell of rose was unleashed and the scent was just like walking through a rose garden! If you prefer/love rose scents then this is definitely one to pick up! The scent was instantly uplifting and smelt very natural too!
The mask itself is clay and the formulation was rather creamy which made it a breeze to apply and rinse off. Shea butter, cocoa butter and Marula oil are also the main ingredients in this deep cleansing concoction. I honestly feel that this has made my mask wearing experience a lot more comfortable since some clay masks can really tighten and feel very uncomfortable but this one was actually ok!
I kept this on for a good 30-40 minutes since my skin really needed some TLC, removing the mask was so so easy, it did feel very firm once dried but as soon as I started to wash my face, the mask instantly felt like it melted away if that makes any sense, some masks need scrubbing and a lot of elbow grease to remove but not this one.
My skin felt and looked renewed, hydrated and so bright! My skin also became a lot more smoother and cleaner and well, it became the perfect base for applying my make-up *hides away*

I definitely recommend trying this one out when your on your next trip to Boots or Poundland because I know I will be picking one a few up!

What's your favourite Montagne Jeunesse face mask?

Lush Honey Bee Bath Bomb Review

Another day, another Lush bath. I picked up a few bath products from Lush recently and you can view it here 
I decided to try out the Honey Bee bath bomb and I have no idea why I didn't try this one out earlier. This is from the permanent range and I honestly think this one is so overlooked because it actually was a fantastic bath bomb that ticked all of the boxes for me.

Product description:
A good soak in a Honey Bee bath will soothe and cleanse the skin thanks to its wonder trio of honey, aloe vera, and rhassoul mud, a clay mined near Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. Honey is a wonder ingredient that soothes, retains moisture and is antiseptic, and we add plenty of cooling aloe vera, too. Rhassoul mud has natural cleansing properties, and also helps condition and soften the skin.

Compared to the other bath bombs in Lush, this one is pretty simple and basic. There are no fancy colours, glitter or any kind of gimmick.
That's what I like about this though. Even though I mostly go for those types of fun products, It's sometimes nice to go for ones that are more about the skin benefitting ingredients than having crazy coloured bath water.
This simple bath bomb still looks cute! The brown swirled in with dashes of pastel yellow, matches the theme of a honey product perfectly.
This smells incredible too! This has a very honey/toffee scent which is so comforting. I think this is one bath bomb that you could actually smell throughout the bath because some scents I have found, faded away or just disappeared but this one remained for almost an hour!
Once I popped this into the water, the bath bomb started fizzing away and then started releasing some skin-loving essential oils. The bath itself was very soothing to the skin as well as being comforting. Perfect before bedtime.
This would go so well with the Honey I Washed The Kids Soap because then you'll smell like a bag of toffees!
The featured ingredient in this product is Rhassoul mud and combined with the other ingredients, it will ensure that your bath is foamy, milky and oh-so moisturising to soothe troublesome and irritated skin. My one lil downside is that the mud leaves residue at the bottom of the tub, I think that it doesn't completely dissolve so you will have to rinse the tub once your done.

Have you tried this out before?
