Two weeks ago I entered a giveaway that @naomigenes was doing on Instagram, and lucky for me I won it. I was over the moon to win my first ever giveaway, and the bits I won were so lovely. The giveaway included a Coco berry coffee scrub by Bean Body, a Happiness Planner from The Paper Parlour and The Superhero shadow palette from IT Cosmetics, and all in all would total up to £70.
At first when I saw the planner in the photo for the giveaway I assumed it was just a general notepad with empty pages on the inside, but when I received it and actually looked inside, this became my favourite part of the giveaway. The happiness planner is an undated 100-day calendar, it is 100 days of positivity, mindfulness, gratitude, and self-development. The planner includes daily reflections, weekly reflections, inspirations quotes, positivity exercises and positive affirmations. I can’t wait to start using it, it’s one of the best ideas and I would recommend everyone to have one. The Paper Parlour do a large range planners, there’s two more I want to get myself.
The Coco Berry Coffee scrub is what I was most excited about, I’ve wanted to try it for absolutely ages but I have never got round to ordering it. The scrub is amazing for stretch marks, cellulite and in general just dry and rough skin. The caffeine in the scrub stimulates your blood flow and helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, and psoriasis. The Demerara Sugar and Himalayan Salt exfoliate your skin, removing dead skin, acne, whiteheads, blackheads, breakouts & other skin blemishes, whilst the Coconut oil hydrates & moisturise your skin. And lastly the Cocoa & Vitamin E are high in antioxidants which nourish & protect the skin, promoting cell repair & rejuvenation. I am still yet to try it, I’ve been so busy lately and want to save it for one of my pampering evenings so I can really enjoy it and use it properly.
Lastly the Superhero palette by IT cosmetics is amazing. I’ve never tried anything for IT cosmetics and was very excited to try out a new make up brand. The shadows are very creamy and are smooth on the skin. The palette contains 3 eye foundations, 3 nudes, 3 neutral shades and 3 liners. I will be doing a blog post on the make up looks I create using it.
I will be doing a giveaway of my own very soon, so keep a look out on my Instagram. But for now I hope you’re all having a great start to the week and are enjoying the beautiful weather.
