Latest In Beauty - August 2020

Saturday, August 22, 2020

 

Latest In Beauty create my favourite subscription boxes as you can choose every single item in your box each month! I've been reviewing the monthly boxes for a while and I cannot recommend them enough - for more information on their previous boxes and product reviews, read my previous Latest In Beauty box posts. For unboxings, mini product reviews and a look at all of my blogger mail, follow (@ofbeautyand) on Instagram. 

*Latest In Beauty - August 2020 

The August selection was fantastic and featured so many products that I was interested in so it was a little difficult to choose the six items for my Beauty Enthusiast box (£22, one off box). I chose two sheet masks (I know Caroline Hirons doesn't like them but my skin seems to and while it's finally improving, I'm going to keep using them until I can find a more environmentally friendly alternative), a couple of unique hair products, a lovely body care minis set and a replacement for one of my favourite mascaras. 

*Farmologie Try-Me Box 

I'll start with the item I was most excited about! This body care 'try-me' box was part of the July selection but it was still on the website during August so I happily added it to my selection. I haven't come across a set like this on Latest In Beauty before (as far as I am aware) so I was instantly intrigued, especially as the packaging is so beautiful. The set contains a body wash (30ml), bath soak (30ml), moisturiser (30ml) and hand cream (15ml), all of which are grapefruit scented. I adore the scent as it is so summery and I think it's a great set to try the brand or for travelling. 

*Frank Body Coconut Coffee Scrub 

Occasionally within the monthly boxes, there will be an added item as a bonus and for the month of August, the added extra was a 20g packet of an exfoliating body scrub. This brand is famous for it's body scrubs so I'm interested to give this one a go, especially as the combination of coconut and coffee sounds wonderfully summery! 

*Toppik Hair Building Fibers - Dark Brown 

Next up, the two haircare items I added to my box, both of which are a little unusual. The first is a product designed to make your hair or hairline look fuller and thicker using hair building fibres. I personally have a couple of areas around my hairline that are thinner than others which I am a little self conscious about so I was intrigued to try this product. It claims to give 'fuller hair instantly' and from my experience of using this product, it works in a similar way to a tinted dry shampoo but in powder form. It does add more 'volume' and helps to covers greys but it is annoyingly messy to use unfortunately. 

*Grow Gorgeous Scalp Scrub 

My scalp can be quite dry and flaky at times which can be very frustrating and nothing I've used in the past has helped so I hoped that a scalp scrub would be a great solution. I've tried a scalp scrub from Loreal and it was a little disappointing so I have my fingers crossed that this one is better as I've loved the products I have tried from this brand in the past. 

*SportFX Game Changing Mascara

I received this mascara in a previous Latest In Beauty box and loved it so I wanted a new one as I'm trying to be a little more mindful about the expiration date of my cosmetics - you should apparently renew your mascara every three months. The mascara is a fantastic, volumising and very long wearing. It has a built-in remover which is very effective so I think it would be ideal for those with sensitive eyes or for travelling. 

*Oh K! Jeju Island Hydrogel Mask and After Sun Mask 

Last but definitely not least are two sheet masks from my favourite cruelty free and vegan mask brand, Oh K! I've tried the replenishing hydrogel mask previously and my skin adored it (hydrogel masks are so refreshing and cooling too) so I had to choose it again for the August box. We've had amazing weather all throughout lockdown in Manchester so I thought a soothing after-sun mask with aloe vera would be perfect for my skin after the glorious summer sun we've had. 

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of my picks for the August Latest In Beauty box?
