Latest In Beauty: April 2020 Edit

Sunday, April 26, 2020
Today's post is all about the April edition of the Latest In Beauty box, which you can still purchase, and it's one of the best ever! As some of you may know, if you have been following my blog for a while, I am lucky enough to review the Latest In Beauty boxes each month. I am sent the *Latest In Beauty Beauty Guru Box (£22, one off box) and it contains six items, although there are two other box options to choose from if you want more or less products within your box. 

There are so many aspects about the Latest In Beauty boxes and the subscription in general such as the wide range of products each month, the packaging, the brands included and the flexibility that I love but one of my favourite things is the monthly theme and daily product additions to the monthly selection. At the start of each month, there's a sneak peek of all the items in the box so you can see what will be included. I had my eye on a couple of products I waited to order so my review of the April box is a little late, oops! 
*Oh K! Three Step Sheet Mask 
I'll start with the one skincare item I added to my box for April and it's a Korean sheet mask from Oh K! I have tried masks from this brand before and loved them so I was interested to try another especially as it's unlike any other mask I've tried before. I have tried a two step mask but this one contains not one, not two but three steps. Firstly, you use the detoxifying cleanser, followed by the anti-pollution sheet mask then the soothing serum. I cannot wait to try this mask!
*Schwarzkopf Colour Expert Permanent Hair Dye - Dark Brown
I'm always so intrigued by the items included within each months selection because they can be so varied and I think my April box is a great example of the range on offer as I was able to add a makeup item, shampoo, Korean sheet mask, makeup sponge cleanser, luxe body care products and a hair dye in my box. Where else you you receive such a wide variety of products in one subscription box!

As we are currently in lockdown, I wanted to choose items that would be useful for the next few weeks so I had to choose a hair dye as the greys are getting too out of hand! I am in my late twenties but I have had to dye my hair since I was around 22 because of grey hairs so I think hair dye is a lockdown essential for me! I haven't tried the dye yet but I will be very soon especially as it claims to provide long lasting colour and 100% grey coverage that also protects the hair from damage.
*System Professional Inessence Shampoo (50ml)
The second haircare item I added was a mini shampoo from System Professional which is a brand I haven't heard of before. The shampoo claims to reduce frizz (which is something my hair has in abundance), improve manageability and provide instant refreshment. It has a very salon-like scent which I love and I can't wait to give it a go as I'm not loving the shampoo I'm currently using.
*Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Shower Gel and Body Lotion
Every month there will be a Hall Of Fame product (or in this case, two products), that are the highlights of the box. I'm always very happy with the Hall Of Fame products and I typically choose them to be included in my box and when I noticed that the April products were from Molton Brown...I was very excited. Molton Brown is one of my favourite luxury body care brands and I love all of their scents so I knew these two products would be heavenly, as the name suggests.

Typically the Hall Of Fame product is one item but the April box contains both the 100ml shower gel as well as the 100ml body lotion, in the same scent. The scent is so perfect for spring as it is very floral, fresh and uplifting to match the glorious sunny weather we've been having. I'm very happy with both Hall Of Fame products this month and I can't wait to see what next months selection brings.
*Sponge Clean Cleanser 
There are new products added to the selection each month but a few remain for a while and one item I've been intrigued by is this beauty sponge cleanser. It comes in a 250ml bottle and claims to wash beauty sponges (such as a Beauty Blender) easily and effectively so they are like-new after washing. I haven't tried the sponge cleanser yet but I'm interested to see how it differs from just using soap and water. It has a lovely summery scent and I hope I'll be able to use it on my makeup brushes too.
*Evalina Beauty Shimmer Shadow Stick - Stardust 
Last but not least is a makeup item and I typically don't choose the makeup items from the Latest In Beauty selection as they tend to come in a randomly selected shade but thankfully for this beautiful eyeshadow stick, I loved all of the three shades on offer. I received the shade 'stardust' which is a gorgeous and very summery peachy pink shade that looks so pretty on the eyes as a single wash of colour for a quick, easy makeup look. I've only tried it once so far and I love the shade as well as the formula but it creases almost instantly on my fairly deep set eyes so I will have to try it with a primer in the future and hope that it prevents creasing.

I recently published a new post all about my subscription box recommendations for self isolation and those in quarantine, if you want more subscription box reviews. 

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of the April selection?
