Montibel.lo Gold Oil Essence | Sample size received 30ml.
Argan and amber oils nourish, strengthen and protect, while adding shine. Rub between hands and apply from mid-lengths to ends. Start light and build up. I'm not sure if I would use this product as I already have oily hair and it doesn't say if it's suitable for all hair types. 

Molton Brown Ylang Yland Body wash | Sample size received 30ml.

Newly reformulated, deliciously scented body wash from this British heritage brand. Apply to wet skin, massaging to lather it up, before rinsing thoroughly. I've always used Molton Brown shower gel as I simply am a fan! I haven't tried Ylang Ylang one so excited to try :)

Bluemandarines Skinlife Energetic Cellular Cream | Sample size received 10ml
A light peptide-packed cream which brightnens, refreshes and protects skin. Use your fingertips to massage into skin after cleansing, AM and PM

Gerda Spillmann Make up primer | Sample size received 10ml
Ensure that your base lasts and lasts with this moothing primer. Apply after your moisturiser and let it sink in before applying foundation. I love receiving primer in my beauty box and especially a travel size as I could just simply put it in my handbag. I love Gerda Spillmann and have tried some of their products before, I therefore am also excited to try this product.

Laqa & Co. Lip Pencil | Not sure if it's a full size item as it looks quite small.
A moisturising lip pencil perfect for day to night, in two hot summer colours. Trace your lip line first and then fill in. Voila-a gorgeous summer pout.The colour I have received is in Wolfman. The colour looks lovely but not really suits my skin complexion. But nice to receive a make-up product in beauty box. 

Lifestyle Extra
Propercorn | 90p
A gourmet guilt free snack that comes in a range of yummy flavours. Upen the bag and enjoy ideal for  picnics or on the go snacking. I was too greedy and ate the popcorn straight away. It was sooo nice and I have to keep on buying more haha.

Beauty Extra 
Birchbox | Gel Mask
This gel filled mamsk cools the eye area and decreases puffiness. Pop it in the fridge overnight and use first thing in the morning.
