#nyLDNmeet Goodies

#nyLDNmeet Goodie Bag
As some of you may know from my previous post here, I attended my first blogger meet up a few weeks ago the #nyLDNmeet and I had the best day! I met the loveliest girls, made cocktails, had beautiful henna, was pampered by a beauty therapist and a hair dresser and if that wasn't good enough we also got an amazing goodie bag! I couldn't believe how generous all the brands were so I just want to say a HUGE thank you as I love everything!    

#nyLDNmeet Goodie Bag
GWA Gel Xpress Polish
As I have a Gel Lamp at home I was lucky enough to receive these 2 beautiful gel polishes. The shades I have are Coral Queen which will be on my nails all Summer as it's such a pretty, bright coral and Rouge Wine which is a deep plum/burgundy that's perfect for the colder months. I'll be doing a blog post on these soon so you can see the gorgeous colours for yourselves so keep your eyes peeled for that! :) 

GWA False Eyelashes
These falsies are in my top 2 favourite items from the goodie bag. I love Girls With Attitude products, especially their false nails and they were very generous with the amazing products they gifted for the event. The lashes I have are 'heart stopper' which are beautiful, they're so fluttery and wispy which are my favourite style. They've also been seen on Michelle Keegan, Jess Wright and Nic from Pixiwoo so I CANNOT WAIT to wear these!
Kiss Nail Wrap
I've always wanted to try nail wraps so I'm so happy that I've now got these! I really like the diamanté pink zebra print design it's not something I'd usually go for but it's good to mix things up a bit with this gorgeous pattern! I'm going to save these for Summer so I can show them off on my toes for my holidays.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Mischievous
This is my other favourite goodie. You can't beat a new lipstick and I love lip crayons. I've not tried any from Revlon before but have heard great things about them so I really couldn't wait to try this. It was one of those moments where as soon as you get in your current lipstick is wiped off and this one is applied straight away! This is a gorgeous orangey peach which looks beautiful, especially in the warmer months. A full review of this will be up very soon!

I hadn't heard of Lipcote before and I can't believe it's taken me this long to find out about them! You apply this over your lipstick and the staying power is amazing. It's smudge, feather, fade and kiss proof and has well and truly made itself comfy in my make up bag.

I think MooGoo is going to be my new favourite skincare brand (massive statement for me to make!) They're an Australian brand and they're one of the most environmentally friendly skin care companies around, the ladies who represented them at the event were so lovely and knowledgeable which has made me like the brand even more. I got a few samples of their Soothing Cream and Irritable Skin Balm which couldn't have been more perfect as I've had a flare up of my Eczema-like skin condition and these are working amazingly well at keeping it down so if you suffer with Eczema too I highly recommend you give this a try! As soon as it's available in the UK I'll be buying these in full size and the rest of their fabulous range!

Lip Glam
I don't know about you but I always have to have a lip balm in my handbag, especially in Winter, dry and chapped lips are never a good look so I'm chuffed that I was introduced to this. This is a 100% natural lip balm containing Lanolin that instantly soothes and hydrates your lips whilst lasting up to 8 hours. As if that wasn't good enough this has more than one use! You can use this on your cuticles, split ends, as an eyebrow balm, lip & mascara primer, dry skin and it soothes chafing and rashes how amazing is that?!

Crabtree & Evelyn Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy
I've wanted to try these hand creams for the longest time and they succeed expectations! They smell gorgeous, are ultra creamy, don't leave a thick, greasy sheen to your hands after and are the perfect size to pop in your bag!

Andrew Barton Hair Masks
The 2 masks from Andrew Barton I received were The Ultimate Blonde Super Hydrating Treatment Mask and Miracle Frizz Tamer Power Dose Mask. I can't wait to use the Ultimate Blonde one as anyone who is/has been blonde knows how dry your hair can get and I love that these both contain Argan Oil!

Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo & £10.00 Off Voucher
The thing I love most about shampoo sachets is how convenient they are for travelling (I've said that a lot I know!) as there is nothing more annoying than heavy bottles weighing down your suitcase wasting valuable space for clothes and make up! Redken is such a highly regarded brand and the products I have tried in the past from them have been amazing.

Macadamia Deep Repair Masque
I've tried this hair mask before and the results were fab! It's perfect for dry, damaged and colour-treated hair leaving your locks instantly hydrated and nourished with renewed shine and bounce. With this 30ml sachet I've got at least 4 uses as you really don't need much for your hair to benefit from the luxurious macadamia and argan oil. This smells delicious too!
Lee Stafford Argan Oil Pre-Shampoo Treatment
Lee Stafford were another brand who were hugely generous, they hair products they gave away in the raffle were amazing - so envious I didn't win! We all know how much I love my hair products so I've really been loving this. This is a pre-shampoo treatment which is fab at helping to protect fragile ends and keeps moisture locked into hair whilst washing, it also contains Argan Oil which is amazing for your hair and it smells heavenly too!

Halo Eye Make-up Remover Pads
I'm not a fan of make up wipes but these are ideal for when your going away on the plane and want to freshen up your skin! I've given the other pack to my Mum and she really likes them.

My Protein
Well, how generous were My Protein?! We got a shaker cup, 4 protein drinks (Strawberry & Banana, Raspberry, White Chocolate, Tropical), protein wafers, protein chox and a recipe book! I had a good old chinwag with the rep from My Protein at the event, who was lovely, and she was so information about protein shakes and then benefits of them as I had the stereotypical view that they were only drinks for muscly gym bunnies. As I've really been getting into fitness this year these have been great and are actually really nice!

Results With Lucy Voucher
As if this couldn't have come at a better time?! I've actually been debating to join RWL as I want abs like slabs for my holiday so I cannot wait to use this, I'll keep you all updated via Twitter ;)

Dream Dots For Spots
Another new brand that I've been introduced to. I'm lucky enough that I rarely get spots but when I do it's the end of the world (trust me to be dramatic as always!) so I'm almost waiting to get a spot so I can put these to the test! I have high hopes though after reading the rave reviews but as always I will keep you updated.

BlanX White Shock Gel Pen
This is the only light activated Gel Pen whitening treatment in the world with Actilux - how amazing is that?! And how lucky that we got one of these in our goodie bag! I've never tried any teeth whitening products before so it'll be great to try this out and I imagine this will be a lot more comfier than wearing strips!

Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream
The thing that fascinates me most about this all purpose cream is the ingredients! It contains Olive Oil, Beeswax, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly Extract, Propolis and contains no parabens, chemicals or preservatives - SOLD! You can use this as a moisturiser on your face, hands and body but having read the rave reviews on MakeupAlley I'm saving this for a hair curling tong burn or I might even take this away on holiday with me as I'd imagine it would be great for sun burn and any insect bites!
Skin Magic Tea
This magic tea is specifically designed to help acne, cystic pimples, eczema, hormonal skin, uneven skin tone, assisting digestion AND it's gluten free! Everything a girl wants in a drink! I got 4 of these which I think is a good amount to determine whether I like it and hopefully I might even be able to see some of the benefits!

Again I'd just like to thank all of the lovely brands who were so generous to give us something for our goodie bags and the girls who organised the event! There will be lots of reviews coming soon so if there is anything in particular that you'd like to see me review first then do let me know in the comments. Have you tried any of these fab products before?
