With the holidays almost here, and warm weather on the calendar for the next few months be conscious of not over indulging (we all know that festive season means eating more food more often and maybe even drinking a bit more than normal), with this in mind we put together a list of the foods that seem healthy but are actually loaded with saturated fat and sugar - one item even contains 5 teaspoons of sugar!

We've put a list together of our top 12 steps to include in your daily summer beauty routine. You can also shop our favourite products online to ensure you stay refreshed and looking great on a hot summers day - click here.




Right, time to see what’s happening this month on rubybox:

All products have been sent out so there will be no further test & review campaigns launching in December. However, we do have 30 000 test & review products already for January 2019 so you can still keep a lookout for some opt-in surveys coming your way…. (One of these is currently live, click here to opt-in)
