Latest In Beauty - Do Good Feel Good Box

Thursday, July 02, 2020

We all know by now how much I utterly adore the monthly boxes from Latest In Beauty but I perhaps love the limited edition boxes even more! I am lucky enough to work with Latest In Beauty and review their boxes; however I'm always grateful to receive one each month, especially the amazing value for money limited edition boxes, such as this one. If you want to see my bloggermail and unboxings before I publish my review posts then follow me on Instagram (@ofbeautyand) to see sneak peeks. 

Today's review is of the amazing 'do good, feel good' box which is worth over £112! The box is split into two variations, the 'renew' edit and the 'repair' edit and I have the latter. The only difference between the boxes is which Clinique moisturiser you want; either the moisturiser for compromised skin (green) or for pores and uneven skin tone (blue). Both boxes contain eleven products from ten different brands and a whopping six of the items are full sized, including the Clinique moisturiser. 
*Clinique iD Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly + Active Cartridge Concentrate for Compromised Skin 
I'll start with the item I was most interested in, the Clinique hydrating jelly and the cartridge as it's something I haven't seen before. I used to use the Clinique three step system as a teenager and liked it but I haven't really tried any of their skincare range since then but this pick 'n' mix style of skincare is very intriguing. I have the repair box so the cartridge I have is the option designed for 'compromised' skin which includes sensitive and irritated skin. 

The hydration jelly can be combined with any of the cartridges, depending on your skin type and you can also purchase a different base to add to your cartridge (such as a moisturising lotion, BB cream etc), so it's a very customisable approach to skincare. I have only been using it for a few days so I can only give you my initial thoughts and so far...I'm loving it. I do think that the jelly and cartridge could have been pre-combined to save on the amount of packaging but other than that it is a refreshing, soothing and light weight moisturiser that is ideal for the summer months. 
*Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Serum 
Sticking with the skincare theme, there are two samples sizes from Elizabeth Arden in the box, both of which are new to me. First up, the serum which comes in little capsules and is designed for maintaining healthy and youthful looking skin. I personally don't have to deal with any anti-ageing concerns currently (although I am approaching my 30's far quicker than I would like) so I think I'll pass these onto my mum to get her opinion. 

*Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream - Original 
The second and final Elizabeth Arden product is probably her most famous creation, the cult classic Eight Hour Cream. It is a cream that can be used as a lip balm, on the cuticles, to tame unruly brows, to add a shine over lipsticks and to highlight the cheekbones, just to name a few uses. I have tried the lip balm version of this product and loved it so I'm interested to try the much loved original cream! 
*Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm 
As well as the Clinique moisturiser, the Emma Hardie cleansing balm was another product I was looking forward to trying out as it is one of the blogging and beauty worlds skincare favourites. The balm claims to remove all makeup (including eye makeup) and deeply cleanse pores, all while hydrating and balancing all skin types - it sounds very impressive! I haven't tried this mini yet but I can't wait to, especially as I've heard nothing but incredible things about it. 
*Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser 
The final skincare item in the box is from Balance Me which is a brand that is regularly included in subscription boxes so I've been able to try a few of their samples sizes and I've liked everything so far. The balancing moisturiser has a light, fresh and gel-like texture which makes it perfect for the warmer months when my skin is a little oily. If you've been following my blog for a while then you may know that since my early teens, I suffered with horrendous eczema on my face and hands but since around February 2019 I haven't had any eczema on my face (which is almost unbelievable). However, since lockdown started, my skin has been breaking out like it is trying to punish me so any products that are targeted towards blemish prone skin are very welcome in my skincare routine right now - for the first time ever. 
*Rimmel Jelly Blush in Berry Bounce
I am sadly not a blush wearer, unless it's Nars Douceur or NYX Taupe (both of which are great contour blush shades for pale skin), as I've spent most of my life trying to cover up any redness and pink undertones within my skin. I probably won't be trying out this blush although the Berry Bounce shade is very pretty and I'd love it as a lipstick shade. It has an unusual and moveable jelly consistency that can be built up to give a juicy flush to the skin or a most impactful blush. 

*Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Rich Girl Red
You really can't go wrong with a classic red lip and this shade for Revlon is utterly beautiful. I have been wearing more red and bolder shades this year as I think they look particularly gorgeous in contrast with very pale skin tones (although I think this shade would look incredible on everyone). The lipstick doesn't feel very heavy or drying on the lips and the finish is very flattering. 
*Eylure C-Lash False Lashes (Naturals) 
Next up is an item that fits the theme of the box perfectly; these beautiful Eylure lashes were created specifically for lash replacement for those who have lost their natural lashes due to cancer treatments. The wonderful woman behind the c-lash is Codilia Gapare who was diagnosed with breast cancer and wanted to create a line of false lashes that can be worn by those who had lost their natural lashes. The strip lash has a clear self-adhesive band (or you can use the gentle glue included) that makes for easier application. 

*Morphe 3B Pure Nude Eyeshadow Palette 
The next eye makeup item is an eyeshadow trio from Morphe in the shade '3B Pure Nude'. The palette is very warm toned with a trio of browns that would be great for everyday wear. I personally don't think that very warm toned shadows suit my pale skin but it does look like a pretty palette and I will be trying out these shadows as I've heard great things about Morphe palettes. 
*Benefit They're Real Mascara 
I've gone through a few mini sizes of this fantastic mascara from Benefit and I can definitely recommend it. For me, I always want black lashes with a fluttery and volumised finish but on days when I'm at home, I just want a quick and easy mascara so They're Real is perfect. The mascara leaves my lashes lengthened, defined and intensely black. 

*Look Good Feel Better Angled Blending Brush
Last but not least is the brand and charity that the box is focused around, Look Good Feel Better. The cancer supporting charity helps people going through cancer treatments so it's such an important organisation to support. With every 'Do Good, Feel Good' box a donation will be made to Look Good Feel Good which is fantastic so you receive an amazing value box filled with beauty goodies and you'll also have made a donation to a very worthy cause too! 

Have you tried any of these products? Will you be picking up a Look Good Feel Good box from Latest In Beauty?
