Unboxed: My Limited Edition Summer Edit Beauty Box – June 2017

Never in a million years did I ever think I’d be typing this post but after a year of umming and ahhing I finally decided to take the plunge and curate my very own limited edition box in time for summer! For those who have followed my journey from the very beginning will know that the launch of my very own beauty box is not only a dream come true but a huge achievement for me so first things first I just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me in getting me here, it’s been a hectic few month’s that’s for sure but all the brands featured have been so amazing and supportive – also a little shout out to my mum and my sister who have helped me pack every single box!

Themed around my favourite season of the year and covering all areas on the beauty front with 10 products onboard, this curation not only recreates those summer vibes in our homes but I’ve also included some sunny day must-haves whether you’re having a staycation or jetting off to sunnier climes. I’m also excited to announce that this edit features a nail varnish shade by Danglefoot Nail Polish that’s exclusive to the box only and will be available to purchase separately for £6.50 plus P&P.

Unfortunately there is only a limited number of boxes available and the box is now available to buy via the shop section on my blog. In terms of the price the box is £37.00 (including free P&P) and features 10 products totalling up to a value of £88.25, nine of which are full sized. 

Here’s the all-star line-up and I hope you love it as much as I do:

1. Alphabet Bags Ombre Stay Wonderful Cosmetic Bag – RRP £22.00

Just in time for travel season, I’ve included this beautiful vibrant cosmetic bag from Alphabet Bags and I think you’ll agree it just rocks those summer vibes and is the perfect size to fit in all your make-up or toiletries! 

The hand drawn ‘Stay Wonderful’ design has been printed in sparkly gold glitter on a white canvas and hot pink ombré makeup bag and the interior is lined with hot pink nylon taffeta. 

2. AA Skincare Green Tea and Aloe Soothing Cleansing Wipes – RRP £3.30

Containing natural extracts of Aloe Vera and Green Tea to soothe and nourish skin in addition to Olus Oil to moisturise, these wipes lift off dirt from the skin in one-step, removes make-up and cleanses the skin gently.

The wipes feel really soothing on the skin so they are ideal for days out in the sun, at the beach, after a workout or any other outdoor activities where you need a refresher! Each pack has 25 wipes.

3. Bloomtown Botanicals The Hedgerow Organic Hand & Body Wash – Full size 300ml RRP £12.00

If you’re regular reader then you’ll already know that Bloomtown Botanicals is a brand that’s very quickly become a firm favourite of mine, they are a truly great company that not only give back to the environment but the charitable work they do is truly amazing so with all of this in mind I decided to include their Organic Hand and Body in my favourite scent The Hedgerow so you can all fall in love with them too!

This organic Hand & Body Wash is handcrafted and gently cleanses and envelopes the skin in summery notes of juicy blackberry and sweet honeysuckle and is made with nourishing coconut and olive oils to hydrate the skin. It’s also packaged in elegant, eco-friendly glass bottle and boasts from being cruelty-free and is 100% free from palm oil, SLSs, parabens and synthetic detergents.  

4. PHB Ethical Beauty Seaweed and Mint Skin Refresh Gel – Full Size 120ml RRP £13.75

Summer is a fun season but it comes with its own set of challenges and this underrated gem is something everyone needs within their beauty stash! The Seaweed and Mint Skin Refresh Gel contains an invigorating blend of botanic ingredients and has a cooling effect on the skin which refreshes & soothes while providing a rich combination of vitamins & minerals to keep skin soft & glowing and has been specially formulated to replenish skin after sun exposure & provide soothing relief for insect bites.

This potent yet lightweight gel is especially useful after a day in the sun especially if you’ve been bitten, suffer from prickly heat or heat rash and quickly calms and nourishes the skin as well as helping it to recover. It can also be used to soothe the skin after shaving which I’ve found works equally just as well. Free From Parabens, Artificial Fragrance & Colours,Petrochemicals, Formaldehyde, Mineral Oils and is cruelty-free and vegan.

5. PHB Ethical Beauty Neroli and Ylang Ylang Brightening Body Lotion – Travel size 50ml RRP £3.95

This natural, organic and cruelty-free body lotion is bursting with organic actives, herbs & botanical extracts to keep skin hydrated, soft and glowing. With an uplifting blend of Neroli, Ylang Ylang and botanical oils to renew & brighten your skin and senses. Free From Parabens, Artificial Fragrance & Colours,Petrochemicals, Formaldehyde, Mineral Oils and is cruelty-free and vegan.

6. MAKE Feet Revive Lime, Lemon and Lavender Foot Cream – Full size 50ml RRP £12.00

I thoroughly enjoy slathering on foot creams to get my feet flip-flop ready but creams and balms can sometimes feel greasy and whilst they do a great job at moisturising, they leave a slippery film on your feet which I absolutely hate…cue the MAKE Feet Revive Foot Cream which makes caring for my feet an absolute dream!

Feet Revive contains avocado oil, apricot kernel oil and beeswax which help to combat hard skin and soften even the driest of feet. A blend of lime, lemon and lavender essential oils are deliciously refreshing as well as being antiseptic leaving the feet refreshed, soft and deliciously scented.

I also find the cream leaves my feet feeling and looking amazing especially when they are bit puffy or swollen – it’s such a luxurious treat! 

7. Gifts By Little Miss Popsicle Bath Fizzy  – RRP £3.25

A fun, ice lolly shaped bath treat! Swirl this Summer themed Bath Fizzy in warm running water, watch it dissolve then enjoy your soak. If you love the scent of Ribena then you’ll love this! 

8. Saturated Colour Make Me Matte Lipstick Mattifier – Full Size RRP £8.00

With matte lip formulas becoming more and more popular, Saturated Colour have come up with such a genius solution that transforms a glossy lipstick into matte in one swipe and since discovering it myself I can confirm it’s has saved so many of my glossy lipsticks plus it doesn’t make your lips crave for moisture either unlike most matte lip products.

Make Me Matte is a vegan friendly and cruelty-free lipstick mattifier that will turn and transform satin or semi gloss lipstick into a matte finish! Apply over the top of your existing satin/shiny/glossy/cream lipstick and watch as the Make Me Matte turns the lipstick matte before your very eyes! Wipe Make Me Matte clean with a tissue or cotton pad after each use. 

9. Danglefoot Nail Varnish in the shade Atlantis – Exclusive to the box! Full size RRP £6.50

First things first, I want to say a huge thank you to the very talented Hayley at Danglefoot who’s worked extremely hard on getting this shade absolutely perfect! This indie creme teal with holo in the shade Atlantis is 5-free and really is a stunner but it’s true beauty is exposed when the sun’s out – I catch myself admiring it every time! It’s also cruelty-free and vegan. 

Tip: For best results and more shine use a base coat and a top coat! 

10. Raspberry Sangria Candle Jar by Flamingo Candles – RRP £3.50

This candle smells amazing! It’s a fun, summery scent that’s perfect for this time of year. The packaging is really nice and would look beautiful in any room if you don’t mind my logo on it! I’m a huge candle fanatic so I’m delighted to have teamed up with my favourite candle company for my first ever box. 

So there you have it, my first ever limited edition box and I hope you love it as much as I’ve enjoyed putting it all together!

  • C De Lucia

    Hi any coupon code?as 1st time using your shop I would like like to try your summer edit box 🙂

  • Lucy Dean

    Well done, the box looks great 😀

  • C De Lucia

    Hi a good entry box i say from my experience my fave items were by Bloomtown, the candle & danglewood nail polish. I think for yr next box you need to source more accessories such as soft flip flops, gym rucksack, for instance as it was repetive to have two foot creams.
    Also to avoid Phenoexthanol & Linalool ingredients in products.

  • Kim Bree McNeice

    This is a lovely box. I think the range of products is great – and I am happy that many of the products are cruelty free. With this in mind have you thought about reviewing the Love Lula boxes – they are fantastic! I disagree that other items such as flip flops etc would be a good inclusion, I have just bought this box for the toiletry contents and I think most people are after this, not other goods.

    • Thank you so much Kim for the order. I’ll get this shipped out tomorrow. I’ve tried Love Lula in the past but they got a little too repetive in terms of the brands so I cancelled but did recently purchase on their old editions 🙂
