Cosmopolitan Holiday Edit : My First Beauty Box


I was super excited when I saw this advertised in Cosmo and I’d wanted to try out a beauty box for a really long time but due to being a broke bitch and there being way too much choice to wrap my little head around I decided to just order myself a little present.

So I love getting post anyway like it’s basically just a present from me to me and I just think that it’s so exciting with something like this as you’re not told what you’re getting until you’ve received the parcel. When I opened the box at first I was a bit like ‘what’s this?’ and unsure of how the products were to be used or how they’d be useful but nearly every product is a gem.

Nails inc – Nail varnish in ‘Abbey Road’


I’m actually wearing this nail varnish now and I have to say I love it. They couldn’t have sent a more perfect colour for me. It’s such a smooth finish that leaves nails looking glossy. I love this colour!

Garnier – Micellar cleansing water


I have used this product before and I know a lot of you probably have as well. I do love this product though, it’s so soft and removes make-up so well without being too harsh on the skin. I love this ‘on the go’ size, it’s great for travelling and handy to have in your handbag for any touch ups.

Garnier – Moisture bomb hydrating mist


This was one of the products that I wasn’t too sure how it would help me at first but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s great to keep in your handbag for a refresh through the day and have found it very refreshing on the hot days to stay cool. I have used it to dampen my make up brushes to blend my make up a bit more.

Coconut oil lip balm


Who doesn’t love coconut oil? I mean it smells good, it’s smooth and I swear there’s so many uses for it. I love this lip balm, it feels so good when you apply it to your lips and keeps them so nourished. Definitely reccommend getting this if you’re looking for a good lip balm, did I mention it smells ah-mazing?!

Ladival after sun


Haven’t had the chance to use this properly (no sunburn for me yet) but I did apply it after I’d been in the sun for a bit and this cream is so cooling. It’s a gel rather than a cream which means it gets absorbed by the skin super quickly (no greasiness yay).

MUA ombré shimmer stick


I actually really liked this ombré shimmer stick, it applies so easily to the skin and gives just a hint of colour. It’s bronzer, highligher and blush sort of rolled into a stick, it’s amazing and super easy! Just apply it and blend it out a bit. Love it!

Collection 2000 speedy blush

The speedy blush was nice, not too much was needed to give a lovely hint of colour to your cheeks. Perfect for taking on holiday as can be used as blush and a lip colour.

St Tropez –  Bronzing face mask


I won’t lie, i’m terrified to use this. I’ve never used fake tan as i’m such a pale person i’m always scared of it turning out like Ross Gellar’s spray tan.

Hope you enjoyed reading this post.

Have you got any beauty box suggestions? Have you used any of these products before?

    This looks a great box. It dosent hurt to get your self a little pressie now and again. Have a look at the Latest In Beauty one too, you get to choose the items you want in it. (I did a post on my blog of the first one I bought, it might help you see what sort of things you can get in it) xx

    I completely agree with the Ross Geller bit, I’m exactly the same haha! I also treated myself to a present and got my first beauty box a couple of weeks ago – just managed to write a post on it at long last!
