The Glamour Summer Edit


If you have read my blog or follow me on Instagram, you will know I am a big lover of beauty boxes and Latest in Beauty is my favourite site. Latest in Beauty always have the best boxes and I continue to be endlessly amazed by the great products included in the boxes. This box is jammed packed with lots of fantastic goodies and the beauty blogger in me is jumping up and down excited to try them all out. Glamour magazine roughly do 4 collaborations a year with Latest in Beauty and the boxes are not to be missed! This has to be one of their best boxes yet and it is bound to sell out very quickly. It only costs £17.99, which is a bargain if you ask me and is worth every penny. Here are my first impressions on the box:

Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals in Sunkissed (3g) + full size brush

I have heard of many tanning products but a self-tanning bronzer that is the first and I am very intrigued to put it to the test! I'm not a big fake tanner, I'm as pale as snow and well lets just say fake tan+me= easily looks orange. I'm always cautious on how much I apply or what brand to use, I look forward to using Vita Liberata and seeing if I have a beautiful sunkissed look. The full size product is actually worth £35, so it is understandable I am quite excited to use it and see if it is worth buying.

Pixi Glow Tonic (15ml)

Pixi is a brand I have admired from afar for a while, I got my first Pixi product in the Capital beauty box and loved it. I am really happy to have a second to test and am happy it is a skin care product. The packaging for Pixi is so pretty and has such a summery vibe to it, I am really excited to use the Tonic Glow and see if it brightens/tightens/tones my skin.

Nails Inc Gel Effect (8ml)

Nails Inc is a very well known and respected brand, I have always wanted to try one of their nail varnishes but just haven't gotten around to it. When I saw it was included in the box, I knew I had to get it and it was the perfect opportunity. There were 3 different shades that you could have got and I am so happy with mine, it is my favourite out of the 3. It is called Uptown and is a pretty nude pink shade, it looks really elegant and like it would go with anything.

L'Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo and Conditionner (2 x 35ml) 

This shampoo and conditioner smells incredible, I literally cannot wait to try it. I have a couple of face products from L'Occitane but haven't used them yet, I look forward to getting to discover the brand more and if it lives up to it's reputation. My hair is quite damaged at the moment, so any help I can get with products is great and hopefully this will nourish my hair.


I always love discovering new beauty products, which is why beauty boxes are so great. You pay £15-£20, get a variety of different products to discover and try. I have fell in love with so many great beauty items thanks to Latest in Beauty's boxes and their site truly is awesome! I have not heard of Caudalie before and look forward to trying this, it is meant to get you summer ready and have a head-to-toe glow.


It is safe to say I have a lipstick addiction and love trying out all lip products, so was excited that Bourjois was included in the box. I have yet to try any of their lip products and am happy finally to, I was really lucky with the colour and it looks so pretty. It looks like a nice light shade and perfect for summer, I cannot wait to start using brighter colours in my makeup. I love lip crayons and have yet to come across one that I have not liked.


It would not be a Summer beauty box without having included sun cream, especially considering how pale I am I was glad to see it in the box. I have actually already used it twice, I have been using it under my makeup and it is a good base. It is for dry and sensitive skin, which is a bonus and means it will help hydrate your skin. I only wish I got one of the SPF 50 products as when it is hot SPF 30 isn't strong enough for me, even SPF 50 sometimes isn't enough me haha. I cannot wait to continue to use this and see if my pale skin remain intact.


Balance Me is a great brand, all the skincare products I have tried before have smelt amazing and have made my skin feel good. Even if you aren't a Balance Me fan or haven't heard of them before, I mean who doesn't love a good body scrub?! With Summer around the corner and if you will be having your legs out, then an exfoliator is definitely necessary and here is the perfect one to use!

Seekers of the Sun Temporary Tattoos 

Gold metallic tattoos are all the rage this season, especially with festivals around the corner. This is a big trend this season, so I wasn't surprised to see they were included in the box and loved them. I already used some of them and forgot to take a photo (silly me!), which is why there is not a picture of the tattoos. They were all really pretty and perfect, they were easy to apply and loved the gold on my skin.

  7. And I had just about convinced myself not to get it! I'm really curious about the Eucerin suncream strangely enough. I use their moisturiser daily with SPF30, but would be interested in something stronger for holidays x

  8. Haha I know how you feel, I convince myself not to get something then my willpower goes. I would probably go for the SPF 50 if you are getting it for abroad but for here the 30 would probably do haha x

  9. Agreed! I'm naturally ginger, pale as a ghost and freckly. I don't actually tan in the summer, I just get more freckles so I like having something with SPF30 to use on my face everyday - protects from ageing and helps stop me getting extra freckly which make my foundation look the wrong colour!x

  10. A fellow pale friend!! I'm literally like a ghost, I don't tan but I burn really quick even with SPF 50. :( Being pale is tough sometimes haha x

  11. Me too! I can't stand beach holidays because I have to hid in the shade, under long tops, constantly apply sun cream and drinking loads of water to avoid dehydration. Still always burn and always dehydrate. Pale skin problems x
