Picnic Time with May DegustaboxUK

June 8, 2017 1 Comment

The months are rolling by so quickly and I cannot believe we are now in June! Where did the last 6 months go? At least we are starting to see some really nice, sunny days though and that is just perfect to be trying out the Picnic themed May DegustaboxUK.

So, let’s take a look at what was in the May DegustaboxUK, shall we?

 

Deli Kitchen Skinni Wraps £1.25


May DegustaboxUK

Wraps are an ideal alternative to sandwiches to take on a picnic and these Skinni Wraps are just great! Best of all they are only 91K per wrap, so you can tuck into these without the guilt! Plus, if you take the wraps & fillings, you’re not going to end up with anything remotely resembling a soggy sandwich!

 

Millions 2 x£0.50 Chocolate / 1 x 0.60 Sour


May DegustaboxUK

Millions have been around for a number of years since 1992 actually. They already have 9 flavours and are adding these Milk Covered Strawberry Millions, and Sour Strawberry Millions. You can’t really go wrong with these as a tasty treat and not just for kids. I love sour things and the sour ones were just that. A nice addition to their existing flavours.

 

Cereal Lovers Crunch Time Nuggets £1.59


May DegustaboxUK

This was actually a really pleasant discovery for me.  Delicious little clusters of granola to snack on. It’s funny because I don’t like granola as a cereal. These, however, I really enjoyed. They have a really pleasant crunch, just the right amount of sweetness and are just really tasty. It was something different to snack on too, and as a Type 2 Diabetic, I’m always on the lookout for alternative snacks, as it contains all natural ingredients. Definitely, something I will look to purchase myself.

You received one of three flavours, Forest, Chocolate or Sunshine.

 

 Cadbury Dairy Milk Peanut Caramel Crisp £3.49


May DegustaboxUK

This was a BIG bar of chocolate and is one of the new flavours from the Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste range. It has a peanut filling, with peanut pieces, crunchy crispies and then it has a sticky, gooey caramel & peanut halves to top it off. The family liked it but did say it was a bit too much and quite sickly.  I guess it’s a good thing it’s meant for sharing then!

 

Portlebay Popcorn £0.79


May DegustaboxUK

This was a really tasty popcorn but for me, just a little too hot. I don’t do well with hot/spicy things and whilst I loved the flavour, that kick of heat at the end was a little too fierce for my taste buds. If you like spicy or hot, then I am sure you will love this popcorn! Portlebay Popcorn is ‘made using 100% natural ingredients too; unrefined cane sugar, rapeseed oil & the finest butterfly corn from the Pyrenees.’

 

Homepride Strong White Bread Flour £1.50


May DegustaboxUK

Homepride is a brand that I have known for years, even when I was a little girl and my Nan would let me help her bake cakes and pastry, she always used Homepride flour.  This flour is a new edition and is made with 100% wheat. There’s a great easy recipe on the back of the information leaflet that comes with the May DegustaboxUK.

 

MOMA Gluten Free Raspberry & Coconut Bircher Muesli £3.20


May DegustaboxUK

Sadly the box got a little dented in transit. I don’t like coconut, so I haven’t tried this myself but the family liked it. Overnight oats seem very popular at the moment and I would have loved to have tried this if it weren’t for the coconut. I just can’t get past the taste of it. They recommend adding either yoghurt or apple juice to give you overnight oats in 5 minutes.

 

Hippeas In Herbs We Trust £1.50


May DegustaboxUKMay DegustaboxUK

As you can see these are puffs of organic chickpeas and I have to say, they surprised me because they were really good. Honestly, I expected them to taste pretty bad but they didn’t. They were light, airy and crispy and full of flavour. They make a really healthy snack alternative to crisps!

 

Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer £1.89


May DegustaboxUK

I couldn’t try this because I can’t have alcohol. Instead, Andy got to indulge. He loves ginger beer anyway, so this was right up his street. He really enjoyed it at any rate.

Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer is 6 weeks in the making using real Asian ginger with a secret recipe using only a handful of ingredients. It’s also gluten-free too!

 

Zeo Soft Drinks £1.19


May DegustaboxUK

This was one of four flavours you could have received in your May DegustaboxUK. It’s a really refreshing blend of spring water and natural fruit juices. The Orange & Mango flavour was lovely.

 

Bean Bags Proper Coffee in A Bag Striking El Salvador £4.50


May DegustaboxUK

Striking El Salvador Bean Bags – a single origin; rich fruity coffee with a tasteful punch. Bursting with flavour showcasing a sweetness with dark chocolate tones.

I’m not a coffee drinker, so Andy has been using these and he really likes them. He said they make a really lovely cup of coffee and are quick, easy and no mess to make. Just pop them in a cup of hot water & they’re good to go! They’re also Eco-friendly pyramid bags & filled with 100% Arabica Coffee.

 

Candy Kittens £3.00


May DegustaboxUKMay DegustaboxUK

There were four flavours of Candy Kittens that you could have received in the May DegustaboxUK. I got the Sour Watermelon flavour. Of all the items I received, these were my favourites – and I don’t usually like anything that is Watermelon flavoured either! These were just so moreish though. I’d definitely love to try more from their range of sweets. I was really impressed with these!

 

Overall Thoughts About The May DegustaboxUK


May DegustaboxUK

I really enjoyed the contents of the May DegustaboxUK. Lots of items to try & there will definitely be some items I will look out for to purchase myself.

My standout product was the Candy Kittens Sour Watermelons. I also really enjoyed the Cereal Lovers Crunchtime Nuggets too.

  • Finally got round to trying these @cosrx pimple patches. ⠀
⠀
I don't get too many spots, maybe the odd hormonal one every now and then. However, I do have some whiteheads that are under the skin - you can't see them till you pull the skin tighter but I know they are there as I can feel them under the skin.⠀
⠀
I had tried several times to extract them but I didn't want to damage my skin and they were proving very stubborn.⠀
⠀
So, I used a sterilised needle, to pierce a small hole in them, making sure to go just deep enough to hit the whitehead. ⠀
⠀
Whacked on one of these pimple patches & voila! Over the next 24-48hrs they pulled out all the contents and the whiteheads were gone. ⠀
⠀
It's much less trauma to the skin to use these patches rather than squeezing and picking and running the risk of scarring or PIH.⠀
⠀
If you've not tried these, then I really recommend giving them a try. I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed. ⠀

  • 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?⠀

  • 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? ⠀

  • 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?⠀
