At last, a beauty box has dropped on my door step that includes a winning formula of travel sized beauty products that I can put into my toiletry bag and take away to work. Travel sized products are the handiest thing in my life. The less room that I can take up in my suitcase means more room for shopping in Sephora and Macys. As you are reading this, I will be in Florida, ready to head home with a case full of new goodies. Although I am slightly digressing, I spend a lot of time in various hotel rooms around the world, so it’s the ideal opportunity for me to try out new products and brands, and really get a feel for things without overloading my suitcase. As a huge fan of the Latest In Beauty collections, the Latest In Beauty Weekend Away Beauty Box is absolutely spot on.
the Latest In Beauty Weekend Away Beauty Box contains nine products including two full sized products, it’s quite a bargain for the £20 price point. Featuring well loved brands such as Garnier, REN and Nails Inc, it actually covers all bases from hair, skin and nails ready to be packed and taken away on holiday or a weekend break.
The Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream (full size) has been featured in a LIB Beauty Box before so I am really pleased to see a new one. I find most Garnier creams react negatively with my skin, however when I tried this last time, I had no issues. I really like this cream and I find that it helps with reducing puffiness of the skin;. I like to put a thick layer on for intense hydration which is great if you’ve been out in the sun.
The Sanctuary Ultimate Cleansing Oil is another product that I have used in the past and have loved. I have a soft spot for oils as I have found them to be so good for my skin, hair and nails. The Sanctuary Oil smells incredible and makes it so easy to remove make up. A drop or two warmed up in the palm of my hands helps dissolve stubborn mascara and rids my face of dirt and grime.
When I’m in my hotel, I like to do those treatments that you sometimes don’t get chance to do at home. Having very short hair now means that less conditioner has to be used, yet I still need a conditioning treatment now and again. Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Conditioner will be my next leave in treatment, and as I have used this before, I know that it leaves my hair feeling soft and silky and not weighted down with conditioner even after rinsing.
The Organic Pharmacy Marigold and Comfrey Hand Cream is a new one for me, so I have slipped it into my liquids bag, ready for work. After a days slog, my hands really take the brunt of it so it will keep them feeling soft and supple.
The first thing that I spotted in the box was this Nails Inc Nail Polish in Sloane Mews. The most gorgeous deep grape shade has been inspired by catwalk trends and is still one of the most classic shades when it comes to a good manicure. I am in love.
I’m so pleased to see independent brand Merumaya featured in the LIB box. I have a few skincare products already fromm the brand and I find them to be gentle yet effective on my skin. The Merumaya Mud Marvels Mask will be my post flight pamper treatment and I’m already looking forward to it.
The Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar is a product that I haven’t tried yet but I have heard so many good things about. I’m looking forward to seeing if this cream does make my eye area look brighter and less puffy, like it promises.
Ahh REN and the Rose Otto range is in one of my favourites so I am pleased to see the body lotion make an appearance. The smell of this cream is just divine and if it works in the same way as other REN creams, it will be lightweight and sink into the skin quickly.
Melvita L’Or Bio Huile Oil has had so many good write ups for it’s healing properties. It can be used alone or added to hand or foot cream to make a luxurious pampering treat.
Once again, Latest In Beauty have made a great, multi purpose box that is ideal for those weekends away, mini breaks and little additions to your summer holiday toiletry bag. Everything is under 100ml so even if you are heading off for a hand luggage only trip, you can take all your beauty bits with you with no problem. I can’t wait to see the next LIB Collection.
