A few years ago, I was completely obsessed with Glossybox... I used to love receiving boxes in the post with a surprise as to what beauty products I would get. However, I found that most of the samples that I received just weren't up to scratch and not worth the money, so I cancelled my subscription. Whilst surfing the internet a few weeks ago, I came across a few blog posts raving about this beauty box and I just had to relive my obsession with beauty boxes & try it out.
What caught my attention about this box was the fact that it is summer themed and packaged nicely within a vibrant, watermelon box. Who doesn't like anything with watermelons on? With summer well on its way, Glamour claims that this is the perfect box to get you summer ready. The box costs £17.99 and contains 9 must-have beauty products from well known beauty brands & I'm super excited to try them all.

1: Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals & Luxury Kabuki Brush - 3g Deluxe Sample
This is the first-ever self-tanning bronzer *exciting*. Dust the powder across your face and watch a natural looking tan develop and last for up to five days! This is the perfect product to fight off dull skin and get you looking sun-kissed. This was one of the products that I was most excited about receiving as it is a generous sample and comes with a super soft kabuki brush too. 

2: Eucerin Sun Protection SPF 30 Face Creme - Full Size 50ml
Ok so I wasn't too excited about receiving a sun cream... I mean how can you get excited about that? However, it will come in handy when I go on holiday and over the summer months as I tend to burn quite easily on my face (especially my fivehead lol). I'm impressed that the box contains a full size sample as it retails for £15! 

3: Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish - 50ml Deluxe Sample
I have quite soft skin so when it comes to looking after my body, I'm super lazy when it comes to things like body polishing. But this product seems promising to me as it claims to do three things at once "give your body a treat with this exfoliator, toner and moisturiser in one". It's designed to firm & plump your skin leaving you looking more toned and flawless. I used this yesterday and it smells super relaxing! 

4: L'Occitaine Aromachology Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner - 35ml Sample Each
I'm not too keen on using these products as I am super fussy with what shampoo etc I use. However, these are the perfect travel size and would be great to take away with me. This duo helps to repair dry and damaged hair leaving it super glossy and nourished. 

5: Pixi Glow Tonic - 15ml Sample
I was super excited about trying this out as the blogging world has hyped up so much about this product. Anything that is going to give me a more radiant complexion, I will defo try it out. This product tones, firms and tightens the skin and removes dead skin cells to give you more healthier and brighter looking skin. It feels so lovely and calming on the skin & makes me feel super refreshed. I will definitely continue to use this product & will wait and see if I get any results! 

6: Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Polish - Full Size
This was the product I was most happy to receive! There are three shades available and I was praying for the shade "Uptown" & woohoo I got it! It's a gorgeous nude nail polish with a hint of browny, pinky tones. I am currently wearing this shade on my nails now and the Gel effect formula makes my nails look shinier and the colour lasts for longer. This sells for £15!

7: Caudalie Divine Oil - 15ml Deluxe Sample
I have always heard such fab things about Caudalie so I can't wait to give this a go. It is a multi-tasking oil that adds an extra sheen to your hair, face & body. The smell of this product is dreamy and I am excited to add a few drops of this to my bath. 

8: Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon - Full Size
As you all know, I am a devoted lipstick lover so probably won't get much use out of this - unless I'm going for a more natural look on holiday or something. The colour is very subtle with only one swipe but I would say that it is very buildable. I got the shade "peach on the beach" which isn't my fav, as it's fairly pale on me. I've given this to my little sister as I think she'll get a lot more wear out of this than me! This retails for £7.99

9: Seekers Of The Sun Temporary Tattoos - 1 Sheet
These are the perfect summer accessory, I love them. Super cute & would look great with a tan on holiday.

I am really impressed with most of these products. Obviously not all are too my taste - but not everything is going to please everyone! For £17.99 I definitely think I've got my moneys worth and I am very tempted to buy some of the full size products (the box contains discount codes too). Give the box a go (buy it here), it's a bit of fun & is a real summer bundle of joy! 

With love,
