The Sheer Luxe & Latest In Beauty Summer Box xo
My Sheerluxe Haul was expensive but oh my was it worth it!
I am the biggest impulse shopper ever and am a sucker for good branding & quality products. I initially had never heard of Sheer Luxe or Latest in Beauty. However, one day at work their brand names popped up on my Twitter newsfeed and I was more than intrigued. At the time they were promoting their Sheer Luxe box – you know the one with Sheer Luxe jumper?! I was super impressed with the speed of delivery and the contents of the products and from then on was addicted to buying Latest in Beauty boxes. Honestly, I must have roughly 5 Latest in Beauty boxes already. It’s a great website to pick brands that you want to try for a fraction of the prices. Also their ever changing ‘collection’ boxes are really good – a few of them I have yet to try, hurry up payday.
So, when the lovely ladies from Sheer Luxe/Latest in Beauty announced there was a new Sheer Luxe box to be released I kept my eyes peeled. I stumbled onto Sheer Luxe YouTube and watched the video of what exactly was going into the box and managed to find the release date. Unfortunately I was on holiday, however that didn’t stop me. I was determined to get this box as I knew it would be popular and a sell-out. It was. In Ibiza I set my alarm to make sure I bought it. Call me crazy but I am so glad I got this box. IT’s AMAZING! So many products which are right up my street.
So here’s my review…..
Luxe Straw Beachbag
All of the goodies came in Latest in Beauty’s big black box – yet not everything fitted in! The Ren balm and box came together in this huge Luxe straw beach bag perfect for carrying summer essentials and then some.
This Works Perfect Legs Miracle, Light Weight Serum
I heard about this brand and decided to do some research as they make all sorts of claims based on research, which supposedly all confirm that it does in fact actually work. I wanted to see if it lived up to its hype. RRP £28. It’s good, lovely and subtle effect. The results didn’t blow me away though, considering the hype. I have a natural tan anyway and was a tiny bit darker, but not massively. The consistency is very much an oily/serum texture little bit runny but does smell divine!
Elemis – Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser For Face
This is me all over. It has a lovely consistency and builds a gradual tan – perfect for summer RRP £30
Institut – Cellular Water Spray
Being brutally honest, out of all the products this is one I wouldn’t buy. It’s good, but personally for the money, I feel you can get the same effect spraying water on you… ! Also I believe essentially the best way to hydrate your skin is to drink lots of water and moisturise too. For me I didn’t notice any difference. RRP £16 for 100 ml
Glo & Ray – Le Amo Creamy Shimmer Lip Colour in 644 Marigold
So my current summer lippy is on it’s way out and this Marigold lipstick is great, especially with a tan. It has real staying power, a gorgeous intense red/orange almost coral look and is moisturising. RRP is £12 which is totally worth it – it’s a British Brand too!
Foreo Luna Play
This little gadget is beyond amazing! Never heard of the brand or product before however I now use it daily without fail! I cleanse my face and use this to ensure there’s no dirt or leftover make up etc. I have never felt my face to be more cleaner, smoother or more radiant! Great size for travelling and easy to wash. I use it in circular motions on my t zone and chin and it works wonders! RRP £29 I will be buying another one when this stops working!
Hawaiian Tropic – Satin Protection Ultra Radiance Sun Lotion SPF 15
Does what it says on the pot really. Smells of summer! Has vitamin C & E with SPF 15 and has a nice consistency which is absorbed well too. A summer essential and is water resistant too!
Ojon – Rare Blend Oil Rejuvenatic Therapy
I love this. Used it straight after my holiday as hair was a bit lack lusting and dull. A few drops and my hair is lovely and glossy which is great. RRP £30, pricey however you will only need a few drops and so will last.
Ren – Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm
Oh if only you could smell this! It smells heavenly and is like a scrub but not. It’s a balm instead which means its slightly more gentle on the skin but does the same job of removing dead skin cells, brightening up skin and making it smoother and moisturised. RRP £22 Will without a doubt buy this again.
OM – Invisible Finish Primer
Lovely consistency primer which can be worn under makeup or worn by itself, which is what I would do! Ensures skin is radiant and moisturised with additional UVA/UVB protection. Perfect as an everyday addition to your skincare routine and lightweight and ideal for summer balmy days. SPF 40 which is great. RRP £42
OPI I Stop For Red Nail Lacquer
This OPI nail polish is an orange/red colour, a timeless classic which sees you right to summer and looks fantastic with a tan, whether its natural or fake tan! RRP £5 Dreamy.
Luxe By Sheer Luxe Perfume
A separate purchase, this wasn’t found in the Sheer Luxe box, however bought from Sheer Luxe. My most recent perfume was a Men’s Paco Rabanne (seriously – it smells insane!) I am not a massive fan of overly girly flowery scents as I find them a bit sickly sweet. Most of the time I gravitate to Jo Malone scents. I love that it’s all natural and I love their Pomegranate Noir and so also love this. I believe they have taken inspiration from that scent. If you love Jo Malone like I do – you need this in your life! Perfect for summer, not too over powering and comes with the most beautiful packaging ever! Free with the purchase is a lovely and very handy black tote shopping bag. I was massively impressed with communication and speed of delivery, the girls at Sheer Luxe are perfect. Very happy with this purchase! £65 well spent!
