July 2021 Treatbox Reveal and Review

Oh isn’t this July Treatbox just Peachy!


Hey Everyone! I am hoping this blog Reveal and Review finds you all keeping well! I’m back on my blog after a short blogging break where I was spending time with family, just in time to bring you this unboxing! It was my son’s third birthday last week! I know, right? Three! Time is flying! It doesn’t feel like more than a week since I did the last Review! So here we go! Thanks for joining me today it means a lot!

So what was inside the July box? Well…

Peaches Fridge Magnet
Just Peachy Notes
“You’re Braver than you Think!” Keyring
Peach Hand Cream from BubbleT
TreatboxUK Original Meal Planner Pad

The Juicy Peach – Tasty Mates – Peaches and Cream Gummy Sweets
Treatbox Original Poster (to Colour in at Home) “Do NOT Forget to be Kind to Yourself”

What My Opinion Is Overall…

I loved the theme this month! Peaches was a very cool theme! With some Treatbox Original items amongst the fun vegan sweets and the useful hand cream, July was a fun box overall! A lovely little Keyring with its positive quote, a colouring page with an important reminder to all, and cute little notes with “just peachy” on them. I loved that we received a magnet tis month because it’s been quite a while since we had one. I am forever using my Treatbox pads as meal planners so to have one this month is really useful in my eyes! I love staying organised! I’m generally very happy with the July box and I’m looking forward to using the items and trying those delicious sweets!

Thank you for reading this unboxing post today, I hope you enjoyed it. Hopefully I will see you pop by Severn Wishes Blog again soon. Enjoy the summer sunshine safely!

June 2021 Treatbox Reveal and Review

That time has come around again for me to Reveal the contents of the Treatbox for the month. And I will then Review the products I have found inside. Welcome to the June 2021 Treatbox Reveal and Review.

Inside the June 2021 Box there was…

Treatbox Print “Note to Self”
A Bag of Popcorn Shed Cherry Bakewell Flavour
A Willow & Rose Compact Mirror
Grey Socks with Hearts
Vitamasques Vitamin C Cherry Brighten Mask
Treatbox Original Pin “You Got This”
Treatbox Notebook “You’re So Cool & I’m Not Even Mad About It”


My Honest Opinion


June 2021 was a box that I was feeling So So about to be honest with you, I opened it and got excited by only half of the box. As someone who is not a fan of cherry smell or taste I will be passing on some of these gifts to family members. I did however LOVE the Socks! Right up my alley! I didn’t think I needed yet another compact mirror, until I broke one of mine *face palm* so that ended up being a very appropriate item for me this month! The other products include the Treatbox original pin which is very cool! A little reminder of “You Got This” is always useful when I have moments when I am doubting myself! I was thinking of putting this one somewhere in my car! (Because my hallway and bedroom already have some pins on show!) The print is also pretty cool as is the little notebook. I would have just loved some stationery for a change instead of yet another notepad! I make lots of lists and notes and I have still not finished all the notepads I have received from my Treatbox subscriptions. That is food for thought perhaps! I would also love to see a month with no mask too, and replaced by something we could get stuck in to instead, like adult colouring, craft or something useful…

Thank you for reading this blog post review today, I hope you have enjoyed it, and that you pop by Severn Wishes Blog again sometime soon.

Spectrum Collections Zodiac “Dark Matter” Black Mascara, and Why it is My New Every Day Favourite

Today I am reviewing the Spectrum Zodiac “Dark Matter” Black Mascara.

When I bought this I was hoping to find myself a new “every day” mascara, both for easy application and removal. I don’t get a lot of time to do things like self care and to apply make up in a morning, so it has to be a breeze! I barely wear any makeup these days anyhow! But I did want something to make my eyes “pop” when I do go out, even if that’s just for a food shop.

After all, even though we are still wearing masks, your eyes are still on show aren’t they?! Might as well make them look nice!

With a thin brush and dark black mascara in the tube, this Mascara glides on easily and I found one tiny clump out of the entire first application to both sets of lashes! Already a huge tick for me, there is nothing worse than having to scrape off a ton of excess clumps of mascara lumps before you can begin applying it.

The tube is a small size but is ideal for storing at home or in a makeup bag to take out and about with you. A little application of it went a long way too! I found that it stayed on my lashes well, I didn’t end up with any fallout on my cheeks during the day, despite going out and about and doing some sweat producing housework!


When it came to removing it (I always use Garnier Micellar Water to remove my makeup) one cotton pad of micellar water was enough to clean it from both of my eyes. And I didn’t wake up to panda eyes the next morning having missed any which was great!

My Overall Review Scores

Appearance 5✩
Quality 5✩
Design 5✩
Staying Power 5✩

The Zodiac Dark Matter Mascara is an excellent product that I am very happy with.
Overall I rate it 5 Stars due to having tested it thoroughly in a range of daily scenarios, I was impressed with its staying power and the ease to remove as well. A fantastic product that is now my daily go-to mascara for an every day look.

If anyone is out there looking to get anything from Spectrum Collections (I recommend their brushes too!) then please feel free to use my referral code and get a discount of 15%.

REFERRAL CODE LINK

Why is it my New Favourite?

It is a wonderful little Mascara wand, with barely a clump in sight, easy application and removal! It’s just what you want in an every day Mascara! Lightweight, Black and Defining! Just Perfect!

I hope to see you on Severn Wishes Blog again soon I hope! Thank you for reading this review!

May 2021 Treatbox Reveal and Review

It’s time to Reveal the May 2021 TreatboxUK box!

I saw the sticker said “Bee Happy” and wondered if that was a clue!

Inside the May box was… “Bee Kind to Yourself” Themed Products ✩

The May 2021 Calendar Print / What’s Inside May Treatbox Information

Treatbox Original Print “Sunshine and Happy Days”

Treatbox Original Bag “You’re So Golden”

Treatbox Packet of Sunflower Seeds “no rain, no flowers”

Yummy Comb – Honeycomb Bar Smothered in Sea Salted Caramel Belgian Milk Chocolate

our tiny bees – Mini Floral Hand Balm 21ml Ylang Ylang and Lemon

by Jessica Alice – English Pear & Freesia – Wax Melt – Hand Poured & Vegan

Treatbox Original Positivity / Self Care/ Wellness Cards – 10 Designs

It’s World Bee Day on the 20th of May!!!

✩ My Opinion of the May Box Contents 

What I really liked this time around were the themed products and how most of them were handbag size. Most were Vegan and Cruelty Free as well. I am looking forward to enjoying the honeycomb chocolate on a day that my son is away (as it contains dairy and he has allergies). And the Wax Melts smell lovely! They are currently making my lounge smell beautiful without even the need to melt them, it smells so strong through the packaging and such a Spring like scent!

The bag is so cool! Cannot believe you’re now doing things like this in house at Treatbox HQ! They look amazing! The hand cream is lovely and smells nice.

Love the Bee theme! The Print and the Cards are all lovely and very well appreciated during this difficult time. It’s nice to get little reminders to look after yourself. As a single mum some days I might not get another adult conversation and I am often busy and tired. Treatbox is a little pick me up which contains even more little bits and bobs to remind me that “I’m Amazing” – so thanks Treatbox!

Argos Tester Review of the Playmobil 6765 1.2.3 Floating Take Along Noah’s Ark Set

I am very fortunate to be an Argos Tester, this means that I often get items sent to me for the purpose of an online review. I test products and take photographs of them before submitting my findings and thoughts to Argos. For April I was offered one of a selection of Children’s Toy Sets. I love testing something that my young son would be allowed to partake in, his reactions and opinions would matter to me during the reviewing process.

The item I am reviewing today is the Playmobil 6765 1.2.3 Floating Take Along Noah’s Ark Set.


#ArgosTester #ArgosTesters #ArgosTestersCommunity

I have written this article about a product that I have been supplied for free, in order to test and then review it. This is my experience with said product and my honest review about the product which is listed below. I have already submitted my product review to the Argos Website when this post has been published on my blog.

Product Details

Product Name: Playmobil 6765 1.2.3 Floating Take Along Noah’s Ark Set

Product Details: A Red and Orange Boat / Ark with Animals and People for Imaginative Play. For Ages 18 months plus.

Product Dimensions: H20cm W30cm D12.5cm

Product Description: A fantastic set for young children to learn about animals. The set includes four sets of paired animals and two birds, two people, a food bag and water trough and a ramp. The Ark itself features a top piece and a bottom half, all of the pieces fit inside it for convenient storage. The top half features a carry handle easy enough for young children to use. The Ark can be used in the bath or in a paddling pool, it does float on water but it is advised not to use it in water that has had things added to it like soap, and not to use the Ark in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, as this will affect the condition and colour of the toys. Two clips, one at either end of the boat, hold the two pieces in place, they are quite tight so it is advised to supervise your child when they want to play with this toy.

Argos Website Link: Playmobil 6765 1.2.3 Floating Take Along Noah’s Ark Set

Argos Website Price: £30.00 (Price Correct as of 24th April 2021).

My Son and his Reactions

I got my son to help me with this review, his reaction to the toy allowed me to give a more detailed review. He instantly loved the animals, they were a nice size for him to hold and he was happy that they came in pairs too. He is a little too young to understand the “Two by Two” Scenario but he liked how he could place the pairs together on his play mats and then move them on to the boat. With my help we managed to get all of them on to the top deck with clever positioning! He loved to pick it up by the carry handle and it got easily transported around our home.
My son couldn’t open the locks at either end of the boat, they were stiff, but I wonder if over time and with use they will get a little easier to open. Until then I ask him if he wants the boat open or closed dependent on how he is planning to play. Overall it has been a big hit and is a beautiful and colourful set for young children to learn about animals and have imaginative play time.

My Argos Tester Review Submission

Very impressed by the overall quality of the Playmobil set. Animals are accurate in both colour & pattern & great for small hands. The Ark has nice features such as the handle for carrying, the ramp to re-enact the “two by two” scenario & the fact that all the pieces fit neatly inside for storing away when not in use. My son loves animals & really loved how he could stand these up and they wouldn’t easily fall over. A fab set that has captured imagination & also teaches children about animals.

My Overall Honest Opinion

There is a strong carry handle on the top of the Ark for children or adults to carry the set. This is a great idea in order to transport the set around the home or to a grandparents house for example. The clips on either end are strong so as the pieces don’t fall out of the Ark during transportation. But they are a bit stiff, too much for children to open up, maybe they get easier with frequent use. The accurate colourful pieces and bright vibrant boat make for fun imaginative play for children.

Having studied the pieces in detail they are beautifully made, smooth with no sharp edges or danger of any small parts. A great set for young children and great up to around the age of 5 or 6. The animals could still be used after that age however, just in other imaginative play. A fantastic set overall with lots of nice attention to details such as the lines on the Ark deck and simple decorations on the animals.

There is only one issue I have with the animals, and that is they all have a hole in one leg which would allow water inside if you were to use the set in water. I am always concerned about mould growing inside toys that are used to get wet. Therefore we will not be using this set in the bath, and instead using blue play mats to pretend that it the water.

Thank you for reading this review, have a lovely day.

I wasn’t disappointed! The box is filled with uplifting items!

✩ My Opinion of the April Box Contents 

What I really liked most about this box was how happy it was! The positive vibes emanated from every item. I laughed out loud when I saw the socks, they are so funny! Then I began to read the TreatboxUK originals like the Print and the Pin. They are all positive or uplifting and that makes for an overall delightfully lovely box.


I look forward to eating the biscuit and drinking the uplifting tea. A Calendar Print is always handy, I am going to use mine as a meal planner for the month I think! The eye mask I will certainly use at some point in the future too!

March 2021 Treatbox Reveal and Review


Welcome to the March 2021 Treatbox UK unboxing Reveal and my Review of the contents inside the box. This box month always coincides with my birthday, so it’s like an extra little present to myself! And funnily enough it felt even more like my birthday when I opened it thanks to two items inside…


… a blank Happy Birthday card and a key ring! (I have collected Keyrings since I was a child)!

Happy Birthday to me! And here is what else was inside this great box!


What Was In The March 2021 Box?

Treatbox A5 Print “You Got This”
Treatbox Cards x 3 “Happy Birthday”, “Keep Going” & “You Are Amazing”

Treatbox Rainbow Design Weekly Planner Pad
“Pretty Things” Keepsake Dish
Bubble t Cleansing Hand Sanitiser “Confetea Edition” 50ml
Jealous Sweets Love Bears Sugar Free Vegan Sweets 40g
“Good Vibes” Rainbow Key Ring


9 items in total.


My Opinion of the March Box Contents


What I really liked inside this box was… all of it! 😀 From the Rainbow theme to the positive vibes! I thought the Keepsake Dish is of excellent quality, and the key ring is lovely too. Sanitiser is something that we all need a lot of at the moment and it is great to have a pretty pink one that smells amazing, that is a bonus! What fun!

The A5 print and the cards are positive orientated and I love that we can pass the positive vibes on to other people from our joy in receiving the Treatbox UK March box! I cannot wait to try those Vegan Sweets and I saw they have a long use by date so no rush in nibbling them all up! Yay!

But my favourite item by far has to be the Weekly Planner! I love how much design Zoe and the team have managed to incorporate into it! Drinking Water, Days of the Week, Goals, Priorities and Don’t Forgets! It is now so much faster to plan my week than my old planner where I had to use a ruler to section parts of the day out for my To Do’s and Goals! Now I just pop them all on this one page! I LOVE IT!


Thanks so much for an awesome item! I would love to see another one with a different border in a few months time, because I will be using this weekly from now on 😉 A great box I am very happy!

February 2021 Treatbox Reveal and Review

Welcome to the February 2021 Reveal and Review of Treatbox.

Here I am, photographing and reviewing the items within my 59th Box. My box of Treats arrived a little late this time around so I’m sorry for bringing this to you a little later into the month than I would have liked! Hopefully the March box won’t be too late and I would love it to arrive on my birthday!

What is inside the February Box?

A “Ginger Ray” Pop Up Box to put Popcorn or Treats inside on Movie Night at home

Propercorn – A bag of Microwavable Popcorn

AfterSpa Exfoliating Gloves

Treatbox Print “it’s okay if…”

Treatbox “Affirmation Word Search” A5 activity sheet

Unwind Bath Soak

Vitamasques Lip Mask

Get It Girl – Choker Necklace – Stay Fierce – Lightning Bolt on a Leather Cord

My Opinions on the Box

I love that this box was all about relaxation and taking time for myself. I am saving the bath soak and gloves for this upcoming weekend when I will be dyeing my hair and having a relaxing bath.

The word search and print were both lovely and nice reminders that I don’t have to have my stuff together every day and it’s okay to take a mental health day or a self care Saturday!

I am really looking forward to box number 60 in March because it’s also my birthday! So it’s like an extra little treat to myself!

Argos Tester Review of the Chad Valley Bright Stars Pop Up Play Tunnel

I am fortunate to be an Argos Tester, this means that I often get items sent to me for the purpose of an online review. I test products and take photographs of them before submitting my findings and thoughts to Argos. For February I was offered Children’s Toys. I was excited at the thought of testing something that my young son would be a huge part of, and his opinions would matter during the reviewing process.

#ArgosTester #ArgosTesters #ArgosTestersCommunity

I have written this article about a product that I have been supplied for free, in order to test and then review it. This is my experience with said product and my honest review about the product which is listed below. I have already submitted my product review to the Argos Website when this post has been published.

My Honest Opinion on the Product

I have been rather happy with the overall look and quality of this product. The Pop Up Tunnel is something that doesn’t only entertain my toddler, but we can add learning into play and he also gets exercise indoors on poor weather days. It is bright and inviting and my son wanted to play with it immediately after I had set it up for him. I look forward to setting it up outside in the summer too on some outdoor play mats. I think it’s an excellent product for the price it is available at, and most children would have the imagination to be able to use it effectively. Because it folds away neatly it even fits into our large toy chest so it takes up no additional room. This product is ideal for any parents who may have a toddler or young child with lots of energy like mine. The best features are the ideal length (it is not too long to overtake your floor but long enough for a toddler to crawl through and have lots of fun), its bright colours and fun stars pattern, the genius tabs at either end so it can be securely fastened and put away for another day, and finally the imagination factor of it!

✩✩✩

Sabrina’s Top Tips for Using this Tunnel for Learning during Play

Once your child is used to the tunnel and is having fun with it, then there are several ways you can use it to increase learning while your child is playing. Words such as “Through” for them crawling through the tunnel is a good one, as well as “In”, “Out” and “Under”. You can also name the various Colours such as “Red”, “Yellow” and “Blue” and the “Stars” on the pattern too. See if your toddler can indicate which is which and say them back.

✩✩✩

Usage of the Product

The tunnel is made from material that is not waterproof, and is only wipe clean, so it is best used indoors and on a soft surface such as carpet, a rug or play mats. Keep food and drink away from it in my opinion. It will move around and slip easily on a wooden floor so perhaps look at where is safest in your home to set it up. Always supervise your child or children when using toys. The tunnel can be used outdoors in dry weather but I would suggest it was still set up on play mats still to avoid the material getting torn by anything sharp or pointed.

Product Name: Chad Valley Bright Stars Pop Up Play Tunnel

Product Details: A Red, Yellow and Blue Tunnel with White Stars. Ideal for children aged 2 years and over. Pop Up means it has minimal assembly required and also folds away neatly using the tabs at either end to secure and store reasonably flat. It is advisable to supervise children at all times while using this toy tunnel and to keep any sharp toys or furniture away from the material to prolong use. It can be used indoors or outdoors, but should only really be used on a flat and soft surface indoors, ideally set up on play mats or carpet. Due to the nature of the material it should be stored appropriately. Play Mats that can be set up outdoors is also a good idea when planning to use this outside because this tunnel is not waterproof.

Product Dimensions: H42cm W80cm D42cm

Product Description: Ideal for bringing children into a world of imagination. This tunnel can be anything they want it to be, and you can also use it with other items such as when children want to build a den for example. A tunnel to a secret dinosaur world, a secret passageway out into the world of spies… this can be whatever your child can dream up.

Argos Website Link: Chad Valley Bright Stars Pop Up Play Tunnel

Argos Website Price: £8.00 (Correct as of 14th February 2021)

My Argos Tester Review Submission

My son was over the moon with this bright & fun tunnel he loves anything with stars on. It took no time to set up & easily packed away again, tabs either end secure it together almost flat so storage is no issue when not in use. A lovely item filled with possibilities with a bit of imagination, good for learning, teaching & great exercise on days we can’t get out of the house.

Argos Tester Review of the Russel Hobbs 25400 Colour Control Steam Iron

I am fortunate to be an Argos Tester, this means that I often get items sent to me for the purpose of a review. For November I was offered technology related items. I was excited at the prospect of testing something that would be so useful to me with my writing.

#ArgosTester #ArgosTesters #ArgosTestersCommunity

I have written this about a product that I have been supplied for free, in order to test and then review it. This is my experience with said product and my honest review about the product listed below. I have already submitted my product review to the Argos Website when this post has been published.

My Argos Tester Review

The functions on this iron are useful & time saving. It heated up really quickly & the colour changing variations aid your choice in setting. The ability to steam iron or dry iron is useful, as well as a handy self-cleaning feature. When using the iron I found it comfortable to hold despite it being fairly heavy, & it was sturdy when stood on its heel. The colour settings help take the guess work out of how hot it needs to be.

Product Details: A 30 Second Heat Up Time, Metal Plate Iron with Ceramic Coating. 3100 Watts of Power and a longer than usual Power Cord.
Product Name: Russel Hobbs 25400 Colour Control Steam Iron
Product Price: £54.99
Product Link: Argos Website Russel Hobbs Irons
Product Information from Argos:

  • Steam output: 50g/min.
  • Shot of steam: 180g/min.
  • Non-stick ceramic soleplate with button groove.
  • Capacity of water tank: 380ml.
  • Water spray button.
  • Anti-drip system to protect your clothes from water spillages.
  • Anti-scale for hassle free maintenance.
  • Self-clean function to prolong the life of your iron.
  • Variable steam function allows you to adjust the humidity, direction and power of the steam flow.
  • Vertical steam function allows you to use the iron to steam creases from hanging garments or curtains with ease.
  • Features a steam tip for easier removal of creases from difficult to reach areas.
  • Auto shut-off feature automatically turns off your iron when not in use or when knocked over.

My Honest Opinion on the Product

I have been very impressed by this Steam Iron. Having not used one or owned one before I wasn’t sure how much it would differ from a regular iron.  And wow have irons come on leaps and bounds since I last had a new one! With an Auto Shut-Off function, multiple light variations to aid use and the choice of steam or dry ironing, this appliance literally has it all. It is quite heavy but then it needs to be.

If you are interested in this product or similar irons then please check out the link above to go to the Argos website.

Thank you for reading this review, I hope you have found it useful.
