June DegustaboxUK 2018 -BBQ Selection

July 24, 2018 No Comments

I think probably everyone has probably gotten out the BBQ by now; making the most of this weather. Which makes the June DegustaboxUK a perfect addition as it’s all about great products for BBQs!

I don’t know about you guys but this hot weather has been killing me. I am just not a lover of Summer when it gets this hot. That doesn’t mean I don’t love a good BBQ though.

 

June DegustaboxUK

So, what have the lovely folks at DegustaboxUK put together for their June box?

 

Peckish BBQ Rice Crackers Multi Pack – £ 1.79


June DegustaboxUK

I didn’t expect to like these at all because I usually don’t like BBQ flavour BUT I ended up loving them and they are definitely something I would buy in the future. Each pack was a really nice snack size. They were crunchy, really tasty, best of all gluten-free, baked, not fried AND under a 100 calories too.

 

Brioche Pasquier Pains Au Lait – £ 1.75


June DegustaboxUK

I always used to buy just normal finger bread rolls to use for hot dogs but recently I tried Brioche rolls and have not looked back since. They are so much better and make the hot dog taste so different. These milk brioche rolls really do upgrade the taste of a normal hot dog! These ones are also free from artificial flavours, preservatives and hydrogenated fats too.

 

Idahoan Gratin Bake – £ 2.30


June DegustaboxUK

A really easy and quick side dish that I am sure would go down really well at a BBQ. Sometimes it’s hard thinking of accompaniments for BBQs, or maybe that’s just me as I am such a fussy eater! You can’t really go wrong with cheesy potato gratin though, now can you!

 

Capsicana Cook Sauces x 2 – £ 1.99


June DegustaboxUK

In the June DegustaboxUK, there are two of these Capsicana Cooking Sauces, so you can spice up your meat or veggies, whichever your preference. I don’t like spicy food and as these were labelled HOT, definitely not something for me! These were two of 4 flavours that you could have received.

 

The Jelly Bean Factory Fairtrade Box – £ 1.25


June DegustaboxUK

So, from savoury, we move on to sweet in the shape of these Jelly Beans from The Jelly Bean Factory. There are 36 flavours and they are also made with Fairtrade sugar. Kids and adults alike  would definitely enjoy a bowl of these on offer, I am sure.

 

Mighty Fine Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar – £ 1.00


June DegustaboxUK

I’ve had a Mighty Fine Honeycomb bar before but not this salted caramel one. It was really lovely. The honeycomb is just so nice; light, crisp, melt in the mouth. The chocolate coating is also really delicious too. Definitely my favourite honeycomb bars.

 

Great British Biscotti Co – £ 1.30


June DegustaboxUK

Biscotti is something that I’ve never been a massive fan of in the past. However, this white chocolate, cranberries and pistachio biscotti was seriously tasty. So if you already like Biscotti I am pretty sure you would love this!

 

Frylight Avocado Oil Cooking Spray – £ 2.99


June DegustaboxUK

A cooking oil you can feel less guilty about using and is also suitable for high temps, such as in stir-fries, due to the resilient nature of avocado. Plus, 1 calorie a spray too.

 

No&More Rasberry & Blueberry – £ 1.29


June DegustaboxUK

Now this flavoured spring water, I expected to love. I love raspberries, I love blueberries and I love spring water. Sadly, I did not like it at all. The flavour for me was just too perfumey, I just couldn’t drink it. It’s a shame because I usually love flavoured water.

 

Orangina x 2 – £ 1.20


June DegustaboxUK

Orangina, ahhh, I actually remember when this came out – yes I am THAT old! It hasn’t really changed and I still really enjoyed these. Lovely taste of orange, especially when ice cold. It was hard to tell the difference between the Light version and the original too, which was great.

 

Rosie’s Pig Raspberry Roller – £ 2.00


June DegustaboxUK

Wasn’t really keen on this one, I took a sip and passed it on to my partner. He really enjoyed it as he likes cider.

 

Fyre Fruit Drinks x 2 £ 1.29


June DegustaboxUK

For the non-alcohol version of the June DegustaboxUK, you would have received these two Fyre drinks. Not your boring fruit drinks, these have a bit of a kick to them. Still very refreshing served cold over ice.

 

Overall Thoughts On The June DegustaboxUK

I think there was a really nice selection of products in the June DegustaboxUK. There were a lot of brands I’d not tried before and although there were a few things I didn’t like, the rest of my family did. So, nothing went to waste. It’s actually become a thing now when the box arrives, the family are diving straight in & claiming things before I’ve even had a chance to look!

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀ ⠀ I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀ ⠀ This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀ ⠀ These are the seven products you get:⠀ ⠀ 💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ ⠀ I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀ ⠀ Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future. Well, depending on how I get on with these, that is. ⠀ ⠀ Have you tried anything from @GoodMolecules yet?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . ⠀ #instaskincare #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine #skincarebloggers #goodmolecules #beautylish ⠀ #skincarejunkies #skincareblogger #budgetbeauty #budget skincare #affordableskincare #theinstagramlab #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight⠀#skincareobsessed ⠀ #skincareaddict #glowyskin #clearskin #dryskin #discoverunder20k #howyouglow #skincarelover #iloveskincare #365inskincare #palmbffs #facialserum #facialoil
  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀ ⠀ Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀ ⠀ Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #coffeescrub #veganfacescrub #scrub #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare ⠀ #organicskincare #cleanbeauty #upcircle #upcirclebeauty #repurposed #repurpose #upcycle #upcycled #circularskincare #circulareconomy #coffeeskincare #caffeinatedskincare #sustainablecosmetics #coffeewaste #coffeerecycling #cleanskincare #veganskincare #greenskincare #skincarecommunity #plantbasedbeauty #plantbasedskincare #skincareroutines #skincarebloggers
  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
  • {prgifted} Perfect for #pinkwednesday #onwednesdayswewearpink are this @neekskinorganics vegan moisturiser and vegan cleanser. They have been a dream to use. Both are such lovely products. 😊⠀ ⠀ I found them to be gentle and nourishing for my skin. 😍⠀ ⠀ Have you tried these products before? 🙂⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #prettyinpink #pinkskincare #wednesdayvibes #skincareproducts #skincareaddict #skincarecommunity #pinkandwhite #skincarejunkie #skincareobsessed #neekskinorganics #skincareroutine #veganskincare #healthyskin #australianmadecosmetics #cleanbeauty #greenbeauty #naturalskincare #glowingskin #vegancleanser #simpleskincare #nontoxicbeauty #crueltyfreeskincare #antiageing
