Sample Bar - The Look Of Love!- Box 5 - February - Monthly Beauty Box Subscription | CreativeGesture

Hey Everyone, happy b-lated valentines day to you all, I hope you all got spoilt. I may be a little to late for valentines day itself but my Sample Bar February Glam Box just arrived in the letter box this morning, so I wanted to share with you all the goodies in this months box!  I really hope you enjoy this blog entry as much as I enjoyed photographing and opening it all!Being around Valentines day I was hoping Sample Bar would do something themed with this special occasion, and as always I was not disappointed in the slightest.  I knew I was up for a surprise as soon as I opened up my Sample Bar box to find that the normal black wrapping paper was Valentines day approved HOT pink! But wait theres more...So after opening/tearing apart my Sample Bar wrapping I was finally confronted with the name of the very special Sample Bar box, which fitting with the theme was named "The Look Of Love". A short and sweet message from the Sample Bar team was as followed and then it got me thinking... what sort of beauty products should I expect to find in a Valentines Day themed Beauty Box?? Pink Lippy, Rose Scented Creams and Body Butters... I honestly did not know what to expect!
And finally the big reveal, so this months Sample Bar Glam Box included a lot of pampering products which to me seemed like the most fitting and logical thing to include in a Valentines Day themed box. Im going to go through the list of products now:
Shiseido - The Skincare Night Moisture Recharge Enriched, ModelCo Shine Ultra Lip Gloss, Lash Card, Tooth Spa, Booty Parlor's Flirty Little Secret Firming Scream with Pheromones and last but not least SB'S Heart Shaped Toe Separators. 
After briefly reading through the list of products in this months box I had already picked out my two favorite/Most excited to try products... Firstly the Models Co Shine Ultra Lip Gloss was a big tick, however I am not usually a big lip gloss fan I have heard great things about this brand and wanted to jump straight into the box to find it. Secondly the Shiseido Recharge Enriched Night Skincare got me excited, as I have mentioned in previous posts, I am always excited to try new skincare products as I have been overwhelmed in the past with just how effective and overall amazing some products have worked for me.
Here is the selection of products in this months Glam Box, Im so excited to see such a large selection of goodies in this months box, plus I love all the beautiful girly colors all together! I also love the fact that you get a lot of full sized products in this months box, it gives you a real taste of each product, I dont know about you bur I hate when you get a small sache of a product, one try and you finished it all. Here is a close up on the lip gloss, I really loved the packaging I think it looks so cute and love how it has a handy wee mirror,  would be great for inside your handbag or travel bag!  PS who else is addicted to my new leather and gold arm cuff...I think its so funky :D!

So this concludes my review and unboxing of the February Sample Bar Glam Box, let me know if you are also signed up and what you got in yours!! As always I will see you in my new blog post :) <3

Sample Bar - Ready, Set, Jet!- Box 4 - January - Monthly Beauty Box Subscription | CreativeGesture

Hey Everyone,
Or should I say Happy New Year! As usual I have been a very busy girl but sneaked in some time to blog and share my thoughts on the January Sample Bar box called Ready, Set Jet! Which is the fourth Sample Bar Box and as usual I have high expectations on this box. Its funny it was called "Ready, Set, Jet" because I'm away from home at the moment, cat sitting at a friends place while she has jet off to Australia, so expect to see a blog full of Sample Bar Goodness and.... Kittens!!
This months Sample Bar Box was of course called Ready, Set, Jet. The name to me sounds like I should expect to see lots of items that would be great travel companions, like essentials or something along those lines. As always I hope to see some full size products in there somewhere haha (Cheeky).
Here is the list of products in this months Glam Box, Im excited to try the Steam cream  air repair eye cream and le tan coconut lotion, these products would be my top items in this months box to try. I have previously tried Hill Cook Solution Buds and really dont like them that much, I guess I just dont really see a point for them. And I am not a big fan at all of the twist bands. Especially the colour I got in my box... reminds me of grandma tights :S! But enough about my feelings and onto the felines  I wanna see some cats .. oh and some awesome new products!! 
And here it is! The January Glam Box.. I'm liking what i can see and LOVE the cute pink packaging of the steam cream.. how cute! I had a bit of trouble getting the kitten to let me open the box... he was very keen on the ribbion so thanks Sample Bar for that haha. 
Here is a more close up picture of the Sample Bar goodies, I'm so surprised/lucky to have received for the second time in a row, another Le Tan product as I simply love Le Tan as a brand.. I think its value for money and the quality of their products is incredible  Steam Cream is a big thing over in the UK and has received multiple beauty awards from various big names in beauty so I am very eager to try such a cult name product + for the 100th time I simple love the packaging of this product, its so me and its so cute and boy does it smell gorgeous!!I personally have never tried a eye cream before but feel like I should possibly be investing more time and money into my skin as I guess it is never to early to start preventing those horrid age lines or the horrid W word... Wrinkles... Ever since receiving the Dermalogica product in the first Sample Bar box I have been addicted so im hoping this will do wonders to my skin as well. I thought I would do a more close up picture of the Steam Cream as I wanted to show you just how creamy and yummy this cream looks, I just wanna lather it all over my skin it smells so devine, the kitty seems to think the same! I wanted to thank my two very adorable models for helping me put together this very short and sweet blog post and I also wanted to apologize to my blog readers for such a late post.. these kittens got the better of me I swear! 


Overall I was not as impressed with this Sample Bar Box as I was with the past ones I have received  A few of the products I received in this box failed to catch my eye or excitement which was a real shame but Im hoping the next months box will be 100 x better! 

Let me know what your favorite product from this months box was and leave any comments below! I shall see you next post. Love Yas!
