Latest In Beauty Weekend Away Box
I haven't been subscribed to a beauty box for so long, I think the last one was My Little Box and I have missed the excitement of receiving a beauty box as even though I may not like all of the products, it's the mystery of them that is so appealing! Does anyone else remember those Claire's Accessories £5 mystery goodie bags? I LOVED them!

Today, I'm reviewing the *Latest In Beauty Weekend Away Box (£20, plus postage and packaging) which I was so excited about! It contains nine travel friendly products that would be perfect for a staycation, weekend away or mini city break. Unlike quite a few beauty boxes, it contains really good sample sizes and the products are from brands that are well know and fantastic such as Nails Inc, REN, Philosophy and many more!
The product I was most excited about is the Nails Inc London Polish in Sloane Mews which is a full size polish - it's 14ml and it's huge. I adore the deep plum shade that almost looks like a rich blackberry shade with two coats. It applies SO quickly, literally just one swipe on each nail and it's covered; I was very impressed.

I was also really excited about the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Lotion (50ml); I adore REN skincare and I have wanted to try their Rose Otto range for years so I couldn't wait to try this body lotion. I thought it would have a sweet or powdery rose scent but it is really musky and gorgeous - love it!

The box contains a few products that I've heard of and can't wait to try such as the Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Eye Cream (3ml) which would be perfect for travelling as the tube is small and it has a nozzle dispenser and the Melvita L'Or Bio Huile Extrodinaire (17ml) which is a hair, body and facial oil and I'm all about hair and facial oils so I will be trying this mini soon.

I used to adore Charles Worthington products as a teenager but I haven't tried anything from the brand for a while so I'm interested to try the Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave-In Conditioner as I always hear great things about Charles Worthington products.

We're down to the last few products, the Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream is a product I've seen on a few blogs over the past couple of months. It comes in a super cute tub and I've heard great things about it, especially for the low price tag.

I've you've been following my blog for a while, you will know how much I love skincare but I'm a little cautious as I have sensitive skin however one of the skincare products included was from Merumaya which is a brand that I've already tried and I know I like. The sample included is the Merumaya Mud Marvels Mask which is a tiny sample but for a one time use, it's a good size.

I think one product that always appears in beauty boxes, which you many think is a bad thing, are hand creams. I always have such dry hands so they are always welcome and in this box the hand cream is The Organic Pharmacy Marigold and Comfry Hand Cream. I haven't tried anything from this brand but it looks interesting and the hand cream is great so far!

Last but not least, the Sanctuary Spa Ultimate Cleansing Oil - I have tried so many of their body products over the years and myself, my sister, my mum and my aunties are all big fans of the brand; however I haven't tried any of their skincare so I will definitely be giving this one a go.

Overall, I think this is a fantastic beauty box considering that the samples sizes are fantastic, the samples are from well know and loved brands and the range of samples is great too, from a face mask sample and creams to a leave-in conditioner, eye cream and hair oil. For the price I think it is just amazing and I cannot recommend it enough! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!

  8. I do love the new Nails Inc bottles but I don't think I'd call them very travel friendly as they're quite heavy and a little on the bulky side. This looks like a gorgeous shade though x
