Before coming away on holiday I was invited
down by Boots for an opticians appointment and to choose a new pair of glasses.
Boots are currently offering Protect Lenses as standard with all their glasses. We all worry about the effect the sun and UV rays has on our skin, Protect lenses help shield the delicate skin around the eyes as well as preventing squinting and eye strain which also reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and lines. The incorporate dual defence technology is on both sides of the lens for all round protection is anti-scratch, anti-glare and UV resistant. Protect lenses used to be £40 but are now totally free and come as standard with every pair of glasses.
Compared to my usual opticians I felt that the test was far more in-depth and although I found the glasses selection to be good I did struggle to find a perfect pair for me. However I did pick a beautiful pair of Dolce & Gabbana ones (Here) which have a very me leopard print design and I love the shape. Of course as a beauty blogger I love that it helps combat wrinkles especially now in the summer when I need a little more help than just eye creams.
What do you think of my new glasses?

Since I haven’t spoken about GlossyBox in a little while I thought it would be worth sharing the content of their new September box as well as introducing you to their new beauty subscription. 

 The September box is a Union Jack themed one with 5 tops british products stored inside. I’m not a huge fan of the box itself (Union Jack print has kind of been and gone, no?) but I love the cute tissue paper and think theres some great little products inside. There is a mini Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for the lips which is a favourite with most people and Eyelure Pre-glued lashes which are really wearable (and not like some of the horrible gold ones I have previously seen in beauty boxes). The other three products are items I have never tried; a Toni & Guy Limited Edition Shine Gloss Serum which is always useful and a Be a…Bombshell liquid eyeliner in Onyx which is super black. I was also super excited to see a HD Brows product but didn’t expect it to be a bronzer, I’m not too sure how a bronzer fits the brows category but I am very excited to try it.

I was particularly excited to receive the new GlossyBox Woman box which is a new addition to the GlossyBox family. I feel that GlossyBox has been looking for something new to add to their brand; they tried the male box and still currently have a MissGlossy box aimed at a younger audience but I’m not too sure there is enough money/interest in these two categories however this 40+ box is able to attract beauty lovers with a little more disposable income. Inside there are 5 products all aimed at an older age group meaning they are anti-aging and more hydrating which means that the subscriber knows they will only get something specific for them. It is a little more expensive however there are some really great products in this box at least as well as a magazine and I can see a woman of 40+ loving every product!

This months box’s edit includes a day and night cream from Lulu’s Timebomb, Redken color extend treatment spray, Comfort Zone Mask and in my opinion the stand out product is the Ole Henriksen serum (which is worth over £20!)

This box comes out every 8 weeks and costs £14 plus £2.95 packaging but I actually think it will be really successful as it appears to be really well thought through and I think it will probably get better reviews then the normal GlossyBox. It would make a perfect gift for a 40+ woman that loves beauty

What do you think of these boxes? What do you think of the new Glossybox Woman subscription?
