Review: The Glamour Summer Edit

I’m excited as always as it’s Latest in Beauty Summer Edit time πŸ™‚ This box though for me is extra special as I won the Spring Edit competition to win a year of free boxes. Free and beauty boxes in the same sentence makes me SO, SO HAPPY!!

Inside the box are 10 of Alessandra Steinherr’s summer must-haves, including everything from this season’s most talked about bronzer to your summer holiday travel essentials. Worth over Β£90, the Glamour Summer Beauty Edit is now on sale for Β£17.99.


1x L’Occitane Aromachology Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner – these smell like an amazing aromatherapy treatment. I found this made my hair very dry feeling, especially when I was drying my hair. This soon settled once my hair was dry, but my hair didn’t feel as nice as it usually does. I would recommend this maybe if you’re hair isn’t bleached or needs extra TLC.

1x Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals in Sunkissed + full size brush – I am so excited to try this little one! It’s a bronzer and a self tan in one! Also, the brush is like the softest feeling brush I’ve ever used. Hello – you’re already my summer beauty fav! πŸ™‚

1x Balance Me Super Toning Body Polish – time to get beach ready and tone my skin, oh yes! I have only been using this for a few days, so I’m yet to see a huge difference, but it’s a lovely moisturiser.

1x Caudalie Divine Oil – this has luxury stamped all over it! I love the fact you can use it on skin, hair or a few drops in the bath! Heaven in a bottle πŸ™‚

1x Pixi Glow Tonic – I’m a big fan of the Pixi products, so I love this one. Instant radiance in a bottle!

1x Eucerin Sun Protection factor 50 – this was a lovely think consistency which blended straight into my skin. It didn’t have a strong smell, if at all any scent. I’m not sure I would use SPF 50 though, unless I was in somewhere like Australia. However, it’s always good to be sun-conscious.

1x Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in the shade 04 Peach on the Beach – the feel of this gloss was superb as it gave gloss and moisture at the same time. It also contains SPF 15 which is a huge winner for a lip product. I’m not so sure about the colour though, so I will be checking out the other shades on store.

1x Nails inc Gel Effect Nail Polish in the shade Uptown – this is such a quality feeling polish. I applied 2 coats and it lasted a good few days without starting to chip.

1x Seekers of the Sun Temporary Tattoos – these are quite cute compared to the other temporary tattoos that are doing the rounds at the moment. I especially like the little gold stars. I can’t help feeling too old for these though πŸ™‚

Has anyone else tried the box?

Lots of love,
Helen xoxo
