Beauty Boxes - The Glamour Beauty Power List 2014! :)

I love beauty products as much as the next person, but I've never been someone who spends their money on beauty boxes. I probably would if I had a bit more money to be honest, but most of them are kept secret until you open them, and the thought of spending around £15 on products that you might not end up using just doesn't seem quite worth it in my eyes as I have more than enough beauty products as it is!


I heard about the Glamour Beauty Edit box on Twitter when other bloggers were posting about it, and I decided to have a little look at what was inside. It is a collaboration between Latest in Beauty and Glamour Magazine, and includes products handpicked by the beauty director of Glamour. What I like about this box is that it tells you what's inside beforehand, so there's no nasty surprises when you purchase it! I prefer it this way so you can decide whether you'll use the products and it will be beneficial for you to spend your money! 


The box itself is only £15.99 with free delivery, and the products inside come to over £80, so for that reason it is definitely a bargain, as long as you make sure you are going to use the products themselves! Once I'd had a nosey at what was inside, I decided that every single product would actually come in handy to me and that I should take the plunge and order myself one! :)


Phillip Kingsley's Daily Damage Defence Conditioning Spray - RRP £7.50
Firstly is this 60ml bottle of Philip Kingsley's Damage Defence spray. You can use it every day as a leave-in conditioner which promises defence from daily heat styling, breakage and environmental effects. It also detangles the hair and adds shine. I'm really excited about trying this out as my hair is pretty dry and frizzy!

James Read Sleep Mask Tan - RRP (approx) £12.50
I couldn't find this exact size of James Read Sleep Mask Tan online anywhere but a bottle for double the size is £25 so this bottle would be worth around £12.50. The product uses ingredients including Aloe Vera, Cucumber, Hyaluronic Acid and Red Algae to moisturise and soothe the skin overnight, and promises to guarantee a subtle golden glow by morning. This is another product I'm really excited to try out as I love to use fake tan on a night out and sometimes your face does end up that one shade lighter than your body so it will be nice to be able to prep my face the night before too!

Eyeko Eye Makeup Remover Wipes
 Eyeko 'Mascara Off' Eye Make-Up Remover Wipes - RRP £6.00
I don't really use make up remover wipes as I take all my make up off in one using micellar water and pads, but I am definitely interested in giving these a try. Even if I just end up keeping them for when I stay away or go camping, they'll definitely come in handy at some point! You only get 10 wipes in a packet which ends up being quite expensive per wipe, 60p each, which I wouldn't buy if it didn't come in this beauty box.

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish - RRP £5.50

I actually already have this product in a full sized version (which is usually around £19.75 for 150ml including two muslin clothes) and this travel version is currently on the website too as £5.50 for 30ml including one muslin cloth. I absolutely love this product and was pleased to find out that there was a miniature version in this beauty box. The travel size of this will be perfect for when I'm going away for the weekend and an extra muslin cloth is always fab! I'll be writing up a blog post on this product at some point as I really do love it! :)

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - RRP £18.50
This product was a big reason that I ended up buying this beauty box. I've always wanted to try some Laura Mercier products out, particuarly this foundation primer. I can't wait to see how this product makes my foundation look as I always use primers but I've never used an 'expensive' one before and I'm really excited to see the difference!

Maybelline Colorstay Stripped Nude Lipstick in 'Coffee Craze' - RRP £6.99
These lipsticks were a bit 'hit and miss' on whether you'd end up getting one you liked because you could end up with one of five! Luckily for me, I absolutely love the shade in my box, and I've actually been on the lookout for a coffee shade like this! I'm excited to try this out as I usually go for matte finish lipsticks and this is more of a moisturising shine lipstick.

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara - RRP £9.99
This is a full sized version of the mascara and although I'm excited to use it, you can't really go wrong with a mascara so I'm sure I'll love it as I'm not fussy! :) It has a unique brush to wrap around each eyelash and leave you with clump free lashes! I've heard a lot of good things about this mascara so I can't wait to give it a go!
