I have to confess… two weeks ago I was out of work for the whole week due to a very bad flu etc. So while I was feeling sorry for myself, I had a moment of weakness and bought a few things (yes, I have failed and it’s still only February-feels way longer though!). I was in bed or lying on the couch bored and scrolling…
I promised myself that it would be just this once! I will definitely stick to it..it’s good to have a little weakness early on in your spending ban, right?!
Well, you’re probably all wondering what I got.. If you are not, then that is ok. I’ll show you anyway :p
I actually have it on my highlights reel on my Instagram, if you want to check it all out! But here are the products I bought..
I have been wanting to try out Glossier products and because they don’t ship to Ireland I, obviously, couldn’t try them…until now! The first purchase (Yes, I made two in one week) were the base products (Skin Tint, Stretch Concealer and Boy Brow) and my second purchase were the Haloscope highlighter in Quartz, Cloud Paint in Dusk and The Balm Dotcom.
How did you buy them if they don’t ship to Ireland? I hear you ask..
Well, I was watching Kirstie Mc Dermott’s insta story and she had bought a few Glossier bits using Address Pal from An Post. I always thought you had to pay to register but that isn’t the case. You just register with your address and card details (if you want to have them deliver to your house). If you want an post to deliver to your house, you pay €5 or if you want to collect it from your local post office, then you only pay €4. It’s simple! The only thing that is tricky is, that you need to enter the address that they give you correctly. Make sure you enter your AP no at the “address 3 option” and not where you write the main address. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask them in the comments section below!
Anyways, I had ordered my first order on the Monday, it shipped on Tuesday and I received it the following Monday-I wasn’t at home (typical) so I had to collect it in the evening. To be honest, I felt it took a little bit longer than it should have. Especially when normally when things ship from the UK it only takes around 2-3 days to get here. So, with that in mind…I decided to order my second order on the Friday and use Parcel Motel. Again, I always thought that you had to pay to register but you don’t.
You only need to sign up with your details and your card details (they charge €4 and you can collect it from your local parcel motel). The address they use is in Antrim, so keep that in mind. My package was in my local parcel motel on the Tuesday. Super quick! The address was way easier to enter and I really liked the way they notified you with an email and text when your parcel was in the parcel motel. They also take a photo of your package when it arrives at their depot.
I obviously haven’t ordered from the US, which you can with both Address Pal and Parcel Motel, so I don’t know how long it takes. If I were to recommend one of them, I definitely recommend Parcel Motel because of how quick my parcel got here.
Anyways, see below the products I got from Glossier. I will have a review of each product when I use them more. Get 10% off your Glossier order with my link here
By the way, this isn’t a sponsored post. I didn’t get paid or get free products. I paid for everything myself.
