May Birchbox

Hello Beauties

I feel like it really wasn't that long ago that I posted about my April Birchbox; the month has gone far too quickly. I am here again with the May Birchbox to show you all.

This is my favourite Birchbox that I have received so far, so I'm excited to show you what I got!

Magnitone Review

Hello Beauties

For today's post I will be reviewing the Magnitone Lucid* (£69.99). This is an electric facial cleansing brush that gives a deeper exfoliation to the skin and can be used alongside your normal cleanser.

This brush uses enhanced electromagnetic pulsations that send rapid vibrations into skin, naturally unclogging pores, and sweeping away dry and dead skin cells, leaving a clearer complexion. It claims to leave you with clearer, glowing skin in just 7 days of use! So I put this to the test.

Now, I already own the Clarisonic brush, which is very similar to the Magnitone. I've had mine for about 6 years now and although I love that, I was very excited to try the Magnitone in comparison. After 7 days of use, I can confirm that this brush really has given me glowing, softer skin. I didn't have any breakouts or spots to begin with, so I wasn't looking to clear my skin up and therefore can not comment on how good the brush is for that, but in terms of glowing skin, this is your guy.

The best part of the brush is that it only takes 1 minute to cleanse the whole of your face. When you start the brush, the head will start vibrating against your skin until time is up, at which point it will beep to indicate it's time to move to another part of the face(Forehead - 20s, Nose/Chin - 20s, Cheeks - 10s each).

The first thing I noticed about the brush was that the bristles are incredibly soft; definitely softer than the Clarisonic. It also comes with a setting for sensitive skin, which is so great for first timers or if you're a bit scared of trying an electric brush for your face. It's definitely a nice way to get things started off. It leaves the skin so soft afterward and I find that my facial oil sinks into the skin so much quicker when I use this to cleanse.
I also love that it comes it bright, fun colours. I chose a mint green colour and I love how it brightens up my bathroom. I use this every other day or sometimes every 3 days, but it all depends on how much exfoliation you think your skin needs.
I would highly recommend this cleansing brush and am so excited to see how my skin changes with further use. If you want to try this, Magnitone have been extremely kind in giving my readers 20% off when you use the code Nikita20 at checkout.
Have you ever tried a facial cleansing brush before or are thinking about it? Let me know
Thank you for reading

Weekend Makeup Look

Hello Beauties,

A few weekends ago, it was really nice and sunny in London, so I thought I'd try out a bold lip with lots of lashes for my makeup. I've not really worn a look like this before and thought it was lovely for the daytime and weather. I kept the eye makeup quite neutral and focused mostly on big, black lashes and the red lips.

Nail HQ Treatments

Hello Beauties

Today's post is a review of some nail treatments that I have recently been putting to the test.
I tend to change my nail colour every week and always use a base coat underneath the polish, but I have never thought to use one that would also help the condition of nail aswell. That's where these 3 nail treatments come in.
