Coppafeel! came to my attention last year when they teamed up with Birchbox to raise awareness of this great charity and cause. As you may guess from the name, Coppafeel! is a breast cancer awareness charity whose campaigns aim to offer no-nonsense advice and information to women.
Coppafeel! have partnered with ‘I Love…’ to be the first cosmetics company to release a shower creme and bubble bath with breast cancer awareness symptom labels to the packaging. They have released this gel as part of their #ShowerHijack campaign and I LOVE it. The idea is that you are already naked, already rubbing your skin while you’re getting clean, so why not use that time to quickly check your boobs for symptoms and early warning signs? We should all be checking our boobs regularly and this gives us a little nudge in the right direction.
If you’re a regular round these parts you will know that I’m a big fan of subscription boxes. You get new treats to try out every month, you don’t have to go to the shops where there are ~other people~, plus I get ridiculously giddy about receiving post. (That can’t just be me, right?)
So when I was asked to test out a nail varnish subscription box I was SUPER excited. There have been a few nail polish subscriptions floating around but they were ones that sent you a few bottles to *try* and you would then post them back. Weird. With NailBox you receive your box and get to keep your goodies. Much better.
Here is what I received in the first box (not pictured was a Nails Inc nail file)
Half of this polish was gone but I don’t think I’ve ever swatched it which is surprising as it’s such a lovely colour PLUS it’s scented – and you know how I love a gimmick.
I think I may have got a dodgy bottle of this as it was really gloopy and thick which is unusual for Rimmel polishes. This was three coats and it took a lot of Seche Vite to get it to dry due to the gloopiness.
It is a good job it’s such a pretty colour – a peachy coral that is a great summer shade. And the smell is lovely! (Feb ’16 EDIT: It looks like Rimmel have discontinued this shade, but you can still get it HERE)
