Summer officially began on June 1st and with a new season of course comes a new Glamour Beauty Edit box from our beauty box favourites Latest in Beauty. The Glamour Summer Beauty Edit is chocful of gorgeous beauty must-haves handpicked my Glamour Magazine editor Alessandra Steinher. From this season’s trendiest colours to your summer holiday travel essentials this is a must for all beauty afficionados!
The first beauty treats in the box will help you get beach ready; from buffing away dull skin, hydrating stressed out hair, and protecting your precious skin from the sun’s harsh rays.
L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner (35ml each) – Whether you’re jetting off to sunnier climes this summer or just staying at home, your hair definitely needs extra TLC at this time of year. This duo from L’Occitane is ideal for reversing any damage caused by sun, sea and sand; hydrating and strengthening your hair with its unique blend of five essential oils, so you can enjoy glossy, healthy hair whatever you put it through
Eucerin Sun Creme for Face SPF 30 (50ml, RRP £15) – If there’s one thing you shouldn’t compromise on this summer, it’s a good quality sun protection. With EU approved UVA/UVB filters, natural deep cell protection from licorice extract and glycyrrhetinic acid to support skin renewal, Eucerin’s sunscreens are excellent all-rounders – offering not only superior sun protection but also offering skincare benefits – and each box includes one product from the range.
Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish (50ml) – This 99% natural body scrub features ground walnut to buff away dead skin cells and reveal smooth, radiant skin, whilst a detoxifying blend of essential oils help to gentle detoxify. With sweet almond oil it also nourishes and hydrates. It’s the perfect prescription for a beach ready body!
Next out of the box is a trio of goodies to help you get a glow from top to toe!
Vita Liberata Trystal™ Minerals in Sunkissed (3g + Kabuki Brush) – This is a brand new launch which has really got tongues wagging in the beauty industry. Part makeup, part skincare, basically this super soft bronzer gradually tans your skin. Apply it with the Kabuki Brush to give your complexion a natural bronzed glow and watch as a tan slowly develops with use. I already love Vita Liberata tanning mousse so I’m looking forward to seeing if this products lives up to that!
Caudalie Divine Oil (15ml) – This multi-tasking dry oil is already a favourite of mine. Including nourishing argan oil and Caudalie’s patented Polyphenols antioxidant extracted from grapes, this oil hydrates, protects and strengthens. It also smells amazing.
Pixi Glow Tonic (15ml) – Since its launch last year Glow Tonic has been raved about and is a regular sell-out on online boutiques. If you’ve missed out on this cult product now is your chance to try it and get your glow on. Just apply the tonic post-cleansing for gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and looking radiant.
Finally once you’ve buffed and bronzed you’ll want to apply a flash of colour and the final three items are the perfect finishing touch to radiant skin.
Nails inc Gel Effect Nail Polish in Kensington Passage (Full size RRP £14) – These incredible polishes have the look of a gel polish with their high-shine and plumping finish, whilst actually strengthening your nails. I already have two of these polishes (I reviewed one here) so I can really vouch for their longevity and shine. Inside the box you will find one shade out of a selection of pinks.
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on The Beach (Full size, RRP £7.99) – Hydrating and as smooth as a balm, but with the pigment power of a lipstick, these lip crayons from Bourjois are a must. Waterproof and with that all important SPF15 this is the ideal beach or poolside companion. Inside the box you’ll find one of three shades; Peach on the Beach, Fuchsia Libre or Proudly Naked.
Seekers of the Sun Limited Edition Temporary Tattoos (1 sheet) – If you haven’t seen these metallic tattoos around yet where have you been. These ones have been designed especially for this box, and their metallic sheen really catches the sunlight and looks beautiful combined with sunkissed skin.
This is in incredible line-up of top-to-toe treats and is perfectly curated for the season. There isn’t one product that looks out of place or that I wouldn’t use and with a whopping value of over £100, for just £17.99 you really are getting bang for your buck!
