It's been absolutely ages since I've purchased a Latest in Beauty box, in fact the last one was back in 2013! You can have a nosey at that review here. Latest in beauty is not one I currently subscribe to but when they release one off special editions like this one I can't resist. I saw this pop through on my email a couple of weeks ago and loved the box, I knew I had to order it.
This is the Glamour edit filled with loads of Summery goodies. The box is gorgeous, I was completely sucked in by the watermelon design!
You can see from the picture below that the box is crammed to the brim. Unlike Glossybox and My Little Box you generally know what you're getting where as with the Latest in Beauty boxes they preview the items online rather than them being a surprise. I don't mind this as you then know what you're getting for your money.
First up is a full size Nails Inc Polish (RRP £11.00) in shade Uptown, annoyingly I already have this shade which is a shame but seeing as I have a fair few Nails Inc polishes not surprising that it's already in my collection! Great item to include though.
Next a shampoo and conditioner from one of my favourite brands, L'Occitane. Aromachology Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner (35ml bottles received, RRP various depending on size starts from £6.50 for 75ml), designed to intensely repair, hydrate and protect the hair, these will most definitely be in my toiletries bag for my holiday! Perfect travel size, a great brand to be included in this box.
Third item received Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish (50ml received RRP for 150ml £18.00). This is a great item and another that shall be coming on holiday with me, designed to be cleansing and smoothing, a great Summer item to banish some unwanted cellulite (not that I have any cellulite, ahem)!
Up next a gorgeous chunky lip crayon. Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon (full size received, RRP £7.99) in shade Peach on the Beach. This is probably one of my favourites in the box, initially a little dubious about the shade but once on it's really not as bright as it looks, it's just a muted peach which is nice and really Summery so very pleased with this, it also feels really moisturising when worn.
This item I've been hearing alot about recently. Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic (15ml received, RRP £18.00 for 250ml). I think this is supposed to be some sort of wonder product, designed to firm, tighten and enhance by removing dead and dulling skin cells. I'm yet to properly test it out but used a little on the back of my hand and it felt ever so smooth after so I'm looking forward to giving it a proper whirl.
This item definitely is a cult beauty favourite, I've used the Caudalie Divine Oil (15ml received, RRP £27.00 for 100ml) and I've really liked it. Multi purpose it can be used on your hair, face or body. I've used it overnight before and woken up with incredibly soft skin and in my hair it is brilliant. A little goes a long way too so this bottle will last ages. A fab item to include in this box.
I also received Eucerin Sun Protection Fluid for face (RRP £12.00 for 50ml) this is great item although I'm always worried about putting factor 50 on my face as I usually use a Factor 30 elsewhere and worry that my face will end up paler than the rest of my body! I will use this though and it will also be handy for the children.
The next items have me intrigued. Vita Liberta Trystal Minerals (3g received RRP for 9g £35.00) and Kabuki brush (full size received) . I actually thought that this was just a bronzer to begin with but actually what it is a mineral bronzer that slowly builds up a gradual tan over a few days, I have no idea how it works and in the name of beauty I am testing it out so we'll see what happens! I might end up looking like a satsuma. The Kabuki brush is great, really soft and allows for a light coverage.
The last item was not for me at all, a set of temporary tattoos. I already have real tattoos so don't need fake ones and these ones aren't that great! I forgot to take pictures of them but you can see what they're like on the website.
So all in all a great box from Latest in Beauty and for only £17.99 & p&p I think this is great value. For more information you can click here.
