Is there anything more exciting than unwrapping a signature yellow and white box from the shopping dream-land that is Selfridges. Selfridges has long been of of my absolute favourite destinations to shop – I have many a happy memory shopping there, mainly for my two loves in life. Shoes or beauty. This one is all about beauty with a special Selfridges Summer Beauty Box 2016 and it’s pretty special so you need to check it out (and move fast if you want it).
There’s a whole host of beauty goodies that are all absolutely perfect for all the sorts of Summer situations you can imaging. From chlorine filled swimming pools, to sunshine dried skin or air conditioned-out faces. All sorts. So enough waffle… what’s in the Selfridges Summer Beauty Box 2016?!
Well, the first thing is an adorable little beauty bag. Adorned with ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in my favourite minty shade. LOVE this. It’s from Alphabet bags and it’s perfect for all the beauty bits you might need to take away over Summer or even as a casual and fun Summer clutch.
Then inside the bag you find:
- Aesop Rind Body Balm (50ml)
- Tangle Teezer Original
- Zoeva Luxe Crease Brush
- Beauty Blender 1x Micro Mini & Liquid Cleanser Sachet
- Eyeko Alexa Eyeliner
- Illamasqua Sketch Stick (in Fly, Free or Trance)
- First Aid Beauty Vitamin Hydrating Mist (59ml)
- Clarins Eau des Jardins Smoothing Body Cream
- Philip Kingsley Swimcap
- Stila Lip Glaze (in Sugar or Ruby Grapefruit)
- Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport SPF50
A pretty fantastic selection of products for just £35 in total. The value of all the contents combined is worth over £130
What do you think of these sorts of beauty boxes where you know what you’re getting before you buy versus the ones where it’s a surprise payment. In general the ones where you know what you’re getting are more expensive up front but you know what you’re buying. But would you rather spend more and get stuff that you know is good or cheaper and get a more random/surprise selection… I think there’s definitely so pro’s and con’s to each one.
My top picks of this Selfridges Summer Beauty Box 2016 are the Alphabet Bag, the Tangle Teaser (always a winner for me) and the Clarins Eau Des Jardins Body Lotion (one of my ALL TIME favourite scents) and possible the Aesop Body Balm too. Oh, and the Zoeva make-up brush.
So just a few then. A huge selection of gorgeous Summer beauty bits that are all well worth a try. A great mix between skincare, hair, body care and make-up. Plus the bag which is probably my favourite of the whole package. Just too cute.
The Selfridges Summer Beauty Box 2016 is out NOW and limited. So if you want one you need to be quick as it’s likely to sell out ASAP. Happy Shopping
