I’d been looking into beauty boxes for a while. I’ve always loved make-up and beauty products but I’m getting even more obsessed recently, so the idea of having loads sent to me in the post to try was a very exciting idea. I was so tempted to try Glossybox because that element of surprise appealed to me, not knowing what products I would get delivered each month, and being able to try products which I wouldn’t usually buy. However, when I thought about it properly, I realised that I’d probably end up paying for a lot of products which I probably wouldn’t use. Also, I’d heard many stories of people cancelling their subscriptions and still being charged, which put me off the idea of a subscription. Therefore, I decided to have a search round for alternatives and came across Latest In Beauty (www.latestinbeauty.com). There is no subscription service so you can just purchase a box whenever you like. They offer a ‘Build Your Own’ box where you can select either 3, 6 or 9 products out of their selection, so you can ensure you are sent products which you will make good use of. They also offer boxed collections, and the Glamour Summer Edit box is the one which I purchased this time round.
The products in this box are worth £104, but it can be purchased for just £20. It includes the products you’ll need during the summer and on holiday, and there is a good variety. Although I already knew what I was getting, it was still exciting to unwrap my first beauty box and have the products in my hands.
The first product included is the St Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mist. Personally, I’m not a user of fake tan and the only time I’ve ever had a tan that wasn’t natural was my spray tan I had done for prom. However, now I’ve received this, I definitely feel like I should give it a go. With it being a light tanning mist, I feel like it’s a good product to use for my first tanning experience so fingers crossed it will be a success when I give it a go!
The next product is the Ladival SPF 30 sun protection spray. This will be great to use on my holidays when I actually get some sun (there’s never much of a summer in the UK). It protects from UVA, UVB and infrared A rays, as well as being water resistant so it protects in the sun in many ways.
Also included was a Grounded Coffee Scrub. I’m so excited to smell this because it has a chocolate orange scent which sounds amazing. This will be so useful for me as my skin gets very dry so this will help to leave it smooth. It will be a good product to use when preparing my skin for the fake tan.
I’ve also received a WOW luxury face mask, which claims to minimise pores and hydrate skin, with the results lasting up to 7 days. This is something which will definitely be of use for me as my skin isn’t in a good condition so any products like this I’m always grateful for!
The Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil has a hint of gold shimmer to give your skin a slight bronzed glow, ideal for summer when you want a bit of colour on you but the weather isn’t going to give you a tan and you don’t want to bother with fake tan. It also smells beautiful with an almond, vanilla and orange scent.
Also pictured is Oribe Texturizing Spray, which I’ve heard good things about. It claims to create a tousled texture whilst absorbing oil and lifting the roots. This travel size spray is worth £19 on it’s own, so I am worried about liking it too much haha!
This Aurelia Miracle Cleanser removes makeup and impurities to leave the skin feeling clean and smooth. It sounds like it shouldn’t be drying so hopefully will be perfect for my skin! It also comes with a muslin cloth which can be used buff away dead skin cells, so my skin should be left in a good condition from these products together.
The final product is a Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour in the shade ‘HD Devotion’ which is a really pretty pink colour. I absolutely love matte lipsticks at the moment and the fact they have such good staying power, so this will probably be my most used and favourite product in the box.
So there’s all my products I received, and all for only £20. I think I’ll definitely be purchasing more beauty boxes from Latest In Beauty and I’m glad I stumbled across this company! I’m so happy with everything I’ve had delivered in this box and I can’t wait to try it all out. Have any of you purchased from this website before? Or tried any of these products?
Have a lovely weekend!
