I went on Latest in Beauty this week, and bought three boxes which all arrived yesterday, and so the next three days, I’m going to write my initial impressions of the boxes. I absolutely love these boxes, because you can see what you’re getting in the box before it actually arrives, and it’s not a subscription service, so you can just pick them up when and if you want it.
Latest in Beauty teamed up with Get the Gloss to bring together this box of 8 summer must-haves, at at the combined worth of over £85, Latest in Beauty are selling it for only £19.00! So, I can’t wait to give some of these products a go.
Philip Kingsley Swimcap £12.00 – My hair gets stripped by chlorine, because it’s so long and thick, my hair care gets excessive, very quickly, and so I love to try new things out. This says it helps to protect your hair against damage from swimming pools, so.. this will be helpful all year round, as I love to go swimming!
Nails Inc. Gel Effect Nail Polish £15.00 (Regents Place) – I’ve recently become obsessed with Gel Effect Nail Polishes (mainly the Barry M), and although I wouldn’t personally pay £15.00 for nail polish, I am exited to see how much the money difference will make in terms of chipping (as I think the Barry M Gellys are incredible). Also, the colour is absolutely gorgeous! Have you seen it?!
Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Refine and Polish Miracle Balm (Full Size is £57.00) – This is a small tester of a product that claims to be both an instant exfoliator and a face mask in two. The full price of this is really expensive, so I’m so exited to try this and see what it does for my skin.
Salon Science AquaCacteen Hydro Soothe Cooling Spray £14.00 – This is to help re-hydrate your scalp, which is a problem most common in summer. The bottle you get is huge, and I doubt I will ever get through this, but it’s a nice product to have in my cupboard for the days my scalp feels like it needs it.
Anne Semonin Eye Express Radiance Ice Cube (Full Size is £43.00) – You get one sample of these eye solutions for dark circles and puffiness. It’s formulated with marine spring water with minerals, it helps refirm and moisturise the skin. And I only have one, so I’m guessing it’s one of those products that has noticeable results with just one use.
Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Facial Hydrator SPF8 (Full Price £42.00) – Just a simple (but very expensive) face moisturiser. I have a lot of problems with the skin around my eye, and am yet to find ‘the perfect’ (if that’s problem) face moisturiser. And so if this does actually work, I am so desperate I would probably buy it…
Bourjois Aqua Blush £8.99 (Pink Twice) – I saw this in Boots a couple of weeks ago and nearly picked it up (good job I didn’t really). It’s a liquid blush that’s applied with a ‘chubby’ stick, and I am so exited for this. It’s quite sheer. and so very blendable but also buildable. So I am so exited! You have no idea!
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR £14.95 – Not entirely sure what this is for.. It says its an oil for hair, face and body for moisturising, but it’s glittery and gold… so not entirely sure what I’m doing with this, but I’ll give it ago, and report back if I find some strong opinions about it.
This box is absolutely great, and I really recommend you pick it up (however, I always think these boxes are great…). You can’t argue with the value for money, and if you want to find out more about it, the link is here.
