LAID BARE GUESS MY AGE FACE CREAM
Laid Bare are a great, budget-friendly range with lots of admirers. This one is vegan and does contain palm oil if you avoid that in your skin care. I've used a few Laid Bare products in the past, including their anti-ageing 9 to 5 cream and their Spot the Difference anti-blemish cream. I was wondering what the difference is between 9 to 5 and this product when I noticed on the box that this is a treatment cream and is best followed with the 9 to 5 moisturiser. So that's what I did. Guess My Age is a thick cream that soaks in quickly but it does feel like it needs something extra on top as the guidelines suggest, so I was happy to use with 9 to 5, although this wouldn't be practical if you were in a rush in the morning and if you're like me and use toner, serum, oil, then moisturiser 😊. It made a good make-up base and my skin felt nice. It's also good to use at night, with Laid Bare recommending you pair with their serum. It also smells nice!

Sukin are another good, budget-friendly brand and I haven't tried their hair care before so I looked forward to getting in the shower with these two. I liked them both. My hair felt soft and silky after using them and the conditioner particularly smelled very nice. I'd definitely try these again.

GLOSSWORKS NAIL POLISH IN COME CLAY WITH ME
As much as I wear bold, metallic colours on a regular basis, sometimes I like a soft nude colour which I find makes the nails look so pretty. This is exactly the shade I'd choose if I was in that frame of mind. I love it. Glossworks have a great range of 9-FREE nail polishes available at Love Lula.

FOM HYDRA BRIGHT NIGHT TREATMENT
I haven't used anything from FOM before so I was excited to see this in the box. Even more to see that the full size of this costs a hefty £79! This is 10ml but you don't need much so it will last forever. This is an anti-pollution serum which targets age spots and hyper-pigmentation and hydrates. It contains hyaluronic acid and natural AHAs. It feels amazing when it goes on, like silk and it sinks in so quickly, you can carry on with your skin care routine straight away. This is such a wonderful addition to the box and a great treat for night time.

I'm not surprised this has been included in a LL box as it's been getting so much love over at the LL Facebook group! I've tried it before in this scent and I'm delighted to use it again. See my review here. This deodorant is among a few others I've tried that really raise the bar in terms of natural deodorants and when there is this quality available, nobody needs to be putting their health at risk by using aluminium and other nasty-loaded deodorants. It's a fabulous, highly-effective deo that I'd recommend to anyone. It's also man-ish enough for the less fair sex to use.
