Every now and again I like to pop onto Latest and Beauty to have a little browse. As well as the option to create your own box of products, there are premade collection boxes to try. The last purchase I made from the site was in June & that was the Glamour Summer Edit box. Glamour have collaborated with them again to bring out the Spring Edit, after having a little look at the products inside, and noting that I was getting a great selection for such a steal I quickly purchased that bad boy and waited for it's arrival. The spring Edit includes a selection of the beauty industry's hero products of the moment, again liked the previous box, picked by the beautiful Alessandra Steinherr Beauty Editor for Glamour Mag. The box includes a mix of seven products suited to get you prepped and ready for spring. Some of the brands I have tried before, others I have not, so a nice mix of old and new to try! The entire contents of this box is worth just under £80 but you can purchase it for £17.99. This is a fantastic deal in my opinion considering what is included....
Morccan Oil Treatment Light - This size bottle retails for £13.99 therefore like I said you are already getting a fantastic deal! I haven't used the light version of Moroccan oil before so I'm looking forward to giving it a whirl. The ends of my hair are a bit frazzled and honestly probably need a good trim (Tempted to have a fair bit chopped off tbh, maybe a bit of a 'Lob'. Let me know in the comments if you think I should do it?! It's a travel friendly sized bottle so perfect for taking with you on trips away or if you have an early sunshine holiday planned!
Rosie for Autograph Parfum Sample - Unlike other beauty boxes, you recieve a generous (& cute) bottle of Rosie HW new perfume for M&S. I've seen a few of her products pop up in videos and blog posts recently so I was keen to give it a go. Personally it's not a scent I really enjoy so I will pass it onto a family member or friend. But as Perfume samples go, It's a great size, and if you like the scent one to keep in your handbag. If you like it and want to buy it full size, it's £28.
Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser - I'm sure I've used some Murad before but I cant for the life of me remember what it was. Perhaps a moisturiser? I digress. I'm all for trying new cleansers & this one is a bit of a 3 in 1 product. It claims to keep your skin hydrated, smooth your skin as well as cleansing it. An added bonus with this box is that if you enjoy this cleanser a lot, theres a £10 voucher to redeem against products from the Murad website. WIN WIN!
Malin+Geotz Vitamin E Face Moisturiser - I've had this moisturiser before in travel size due to getting it as a freebie with a magazine & I did like using it. It's a lightweight daily moisturiser which is oil free. If I remember correctly it sinks in well and left my skin feeling pretty nourished. I tend to mix up my moisturisers often and dont stick to the same one unless it gains 'Holy grail' status. I tend to keep these size products for travel. So this will probably be kept to the side for when I next go away!
Bareminerals Bareskiin Pure Brightening Serum foundation - I have a friend who works for Bareminerals and I have banged on to her how keen I am to try this foundation. Obviously when it comes in a beauty box the chances of it being your shade is very slim...and in this case it wasnt. it's too tan, however I bought myself some fake tan the other week and panicked because I didnt have a darker foundation....now I dont need to worry! After receiving the box, I did however pop into HOF and get myself matched up with the correct shade by my friend. So now I have a couple of samples to try!
Illamasqua Precision Ink Eyeiner - This bad boy retails for £20ish - so combined with the Moroccan oil it makes this beauty box so worth it! I've used this eyeliner before and I really do love it. Unfortunately I have misslaid my Kat Von D Tattoo liner so this is a great alternative to use while I try and find it! It goes on quite wet but dries really quickly. Doesn't smudge or transfer at all. I bladdy love it! It's a very opaque black that doesnt fade. If you fancy trying something from Illamasqua I do recommend giving it a go.
MUA Luxe 10 shade Palette - This palette is available in two variations. There are two different palettes you may recieve in your box. A bronze toned selection of shadows and then the more purple/pink tones, which is the one I have. I havent tried this yet, nor have I tried any MUA eyeshadows to be honest. Looking a the palette I'm wondering if it could also be used as a sort of highlighting blush? (i'm feeling serious bobbi brown shimmer brick vibes) What do you think?
Overall I think this is a really good box which definitely has something for everyone, and products varying in price. Like I pointed out in the comments of the individual products, a couple of them really 'make' this box for me in regards to what they are and the value for money. Beauty boxes are a great way to try out brands you haven't used before or even stock up on travel sized items throughout the year for your summer holiday! I like that you can see what you are getting before hand. It's been so long since I've been subbed to a beauty box, do they still keep it a secret in regards to what you get each month? Let me know in the comments!
