(Selfridges Summer Beauty Box – £25*)
Beauty boxes really are one of the best ways to learn about new products. I have found so many hidden gems inside various beauty boxes, so I am always excited when it comes to peering inside a new box. However, this is by far the best beauty box I have ever come across. With nine products rather than the usual 5 and all in usable sample or full size bottles, the value of the box is amazing. The box costs £25 but holds £70 worth of beauty gifts.
Most exciting for me is the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray which I have been dying to try for months. This mini version will be perfect for me to take away on my travels for easy, tousled waves. There is also a 30ml Caudalie Beauty Elixir which will replace the one that I already own which is running out. Perfect. The St Tropez Face Lotion will be perfect for the days I want to add a glow to my cheeks without having to pile on the makeup and the Lancaster Beauty Tan Maximizer will again be amazing for my holiday as a soothing moisturiser with tanning benefits. There is also a full sized matte Models Own polish in Bubblegum and a Molten Brown Bath and Shower gel in Templetree which smells divine. The Erborian BB creme is unfortunately far too dark for my skin but I may try to blend it with some light foundations or tinted moisturisers so I can see how amazing it is apparently meant to be. There are some gorgeous hair clips from Jane Tran that remind me of when I was obsessed with clips at the age of 9 and finally a full size Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer for use in the shower. Now that is a beauty box.
All of the products are varied and items that anyone could make use of. It is the perfect holiday essentials kit with tanning products, hair care, makeup, moisturisers and face spritz’s all in travel sized bottles. For £25 this is a total steal and I would recommend you hurry if you want to get your hands on it first. There is limited stock and they will sell out like hot cakes. I for one will be keeping my eye out for the next beauty box they bring out.
