Latest in Beauty Glamour Beauty Edit Box* | £14.95 plus p&p | Link
After the huge success of their 'Glamour Beauty Edit' box, which was launched towards the end of 2013 (read my post about it here), Latest In Beauty are back with a Spring version of their much coveted beauty box. Unlike traditional monthly beauty boxes that require a subscription, Latest In Beauty release their boxes every few months containing seven must-have beauty products for the bargain price of £14.95 with no subscription involved. All you have to do is buy the box from their website and be on your jolly way - perfect.
The Latest In Beauty team have once again paired up with Glamour magazine to create their latest box and they've hand-picked another bunch of fabulous beauty products, or 'game-changers' as they refer to them, to get your teeth stuck into. The Spring Glamour Beauty Edit box is available to buy NOW so if you want to get your mitts on one, I'd recommend you be quick about it. I can already tell its going to be another bestseller! So, you're probably wanting to know a little bit more about the contents of the box so without further ado, keep reading to find out more ...
Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring | RRP £3.75 | Link
I'm not sure how I feel about this product but I'll have to give it a go first before I say whether I like it or not. Invisibobble is a super stretchy hair tie that looks like a coil and the idea behind it is that it leaves the hair 'kink-free' and is more gentle and comfortable to wear than your classic hair tie. For example, if you like to have your hair tied up for work but are going out afterwards this would be ideal as you could take your hair out of the tie and have no obvious bumps and lumps from where your hair has been tied up. However, my only concern is that its bright pink. I can imagine it looking quite childish in the hair so I think this would have been better in a more neutral shade so it blends in with natural hair tones. However, it is an interesting concept so I'm looking forward to seeing how it works!
Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm | RRP £3.69 | Link
Burts Bees is a very well-known and well-loved skincare, bath and body brand so I was very happy to see this lip balm inside the box. I've never tried a Burts Bee lip balm before but I know lots of people swear by them so I'm excited to give this a go. My lips are so chapped at the moment due to the cold weather so I rarely leave the house without a lip balm in tow.
Cheeky Chat Me Up Nail Paint in 'Tounge N Cheek' | RRP £7.00 | Link
I'm not a huge nail polish wearer due to the fact I'm a nail biter/picker (I always do it when I'm nervous or anxious) and my nail look absolutely atrocious. I know, its a disgusting habit, don't judge me. However, this nail polish from 'Cheeky' which is the 'new cool nail brand on the block' according to Latest in Beauty, is a beautiful coral shade that is perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer months. It'll look perfect on my toes with a pair of sandals!
Daniel Sandler Long Lasting Eyeliner in 'Aqua Velvet' | RRP £9.25 | Link
Unfortunately, this eyeliner from well-know brand Daniel Sandler is the only product in this box that I don't think I'll get any use out of. Its nothing to do with the product itself but the colour just isn't 'me' and I don't know how I'd incorporate an aqua eyeliner into my makeup routine. I'm more of a black or brown eyeliner girl and I'm not very experimental when it comes to colour on my eyes so this doesn't really suit my personal tastes. However, if you're braver than me and like to wear colour on your eyes, 'Aqua Velvet' is a bespoke shade created especially for this box so that's pretty exciting!
Percy & Reed Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse | (50ml worth £3.00) | Link
If you've read my blog for a while you'll probably know that I'm quite the fan of big bouncy locks so any hair product that has the word 'volumising' on it is always grabs my attention. This mousse from Percy & Reed, a brand I've heard a lot of good things about, promises to create natural volume with plenty of bounce and hold whilst feeling lightweight in the hair.
Rituals Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel | RRP £4.00 | Link
I'm so excited to see a Rituals foaming shower gel in this box as I've tried one of these before and they're absolutely incredible. I'm not one to normally get excited about a shower gel but trust me, this stuff is genius and feels/smells amazing! It has a gel formula when its pumped out of the bottle but as soon as it makes contact with water, it turns into a creamy foam that feels so lovely on the skin. The last time I used this stuff it made me skin feel silky soft so I'm excited to get this in my shower and I may even order a full size bottle with the 20% discount code you get when buying this box! Yay!
L'Oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara | RRP £8.99 | Link
Another product I'm very excited to try from this box is this Loreal 'Miss Manga' mascara. I've seen it flying around all over the blogersphere lately and I've heard a lot of great things about it so I've got high hopes. Apparently it 'builds natural lashes to their plumpest, lushest maximum thickness' which sounds good to me! Let me know if you'd like me to do a full review on this when I've given it a proper try.
As you can see, Latest In Beauty have pulled it out of the bag once again and have created a fantastic beauty box worth well more than its £14.95 retail price. If you total up the RRP's of all the products included, this box is worth around £40.00 so if you like the look of the contents, you're getting a real bargain! You also receive some discount codes with the box for some of the brands included. As I said earlier, I'm definitely going to be making use of my 20% off Rituals code. I can't wait to start using everything!
