I was over the moon to have had the opportunity to take a sneak peek inside one of Marks and Spencer's fab beauty box editions. I'm talking about their Summer Beauty Box which arrived at my door and I'm sure my neighbours (and neighbouring streets) could hear my high pitched squeals of joy when I started unboxing the contents.
Now, I know I say it time and time again that I love discovering new brands and products, and whilst there are many I am familiar with, there are also many I am not and quite a few of them have cropped up inside this box. I am already a loyal customer of Marks and Spencer, their beauty and skincare ranges are just so vast and elegant, I rarely leave without purchasing something. If I do somehow manage to leave the store without anything, I will constantly think about it and most likely end up purchasing it online!
M&S do some fantastic limited edition beauty and skincare boxes that crop up throughout the year for all kinds of special occasions and I've tried quite a few, like Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and of course their Christmas beauty advent calendars which are brilliant. They also stock such a wide range of cruelty free brands like Pur Cosmetics, REN Skincare, Pixi Beauty and this inclues their own beauty and skincare collections like Autograph, Rosie for Autograph, Pure, and Limited Collection (and the rest) which are some of my personal favourites and I can't recommend them enough.
This Summer Beaty Box is suitable quite literally for those come rain or come shine days which let's face it, is the British Summer in a nutshell, isn't it?
So, here are just a few of the really special treats you can expect inside the Marks and Spencer Summer Beauty Box which is available in stores from 31st May.
My Highlights From This Box are:
Sheer Radiance Fragrance
This is such a delicate, fruity fragrance with a hint of floral and I absolutely love it. I think it's ideal for Summer as it's not at all overpowering so you can just do away with a light spritz and it's more than enough without smelling like you've just walked through a meadow (although, that doesn't exactly sound like the worst thing ever does it!)
Dreamcoat Sealant Spray
This is a fantastic humidity proofing spray which is only activated when heat styling is used. I've been using it after washing on towel-dried hair and spraying a few sections and combing through (paying particular attention to the front of my hair which always receives the most styling). Once I've dried and styled my hair, the results are actually incredible and my hair is left feeling like silk.
'She's In Fashion'
I am so into nail polishes it's getting a little bit ridiculous; I am accumulating so many. Not that it's in any way a bad thing at all when there are so many gorgeous nail polish brands out there to wet your whistle. I love a new nail varnish because the consistency is always so fresh and it makes applying the nail varnish a dream. This particular pinky/purple shade is quite deep and intense and absolutely spot on for holidays and I'm also thinking the toes could really benefit from this shade now the sandals are out of the wardrobe and my feet can finally see the light of day.
Fully Charged Mascara
I have become quite familiar with Pur Cosmetics over the past couple of years and it's thanks to Marks and Spencer that I discovered them after finding them in another edition of one of their beauty boxes. I am all about the mascara and this is a smaller, handy travel-size which I will be popping into my handbag for on-the-go makeup touch ups and also when I go away. The 'magnetic' aspect is designed to pull volume into the lashes and to lift and separate each one which is just what I need and it's brilliant - no clumps, thank you!
