Beauty // My Favourite Picks from the Selfridges Beauty Box

Over Summer I treated myself to the limited edition beauty box from Selfridges and over the past few months some of the products have quickly become some of my faves :) The products are great to use all year round! I think it was such a good buy - £40 to try 13 different beauty products, not to mention it all came in a super cool huge canvas pouch from Alphabet Bags which has fast become my essential travelling companion!
Here are my stand out products . . .

Clarins Eau des Jardins Body Cream // I already have the perfume version of this and the scent is just divine - there's something about it which just instantly makes me happy! Layering the perfume over this smoothing body lotion just leaves the scent lingering for even longer. It's so addictive!

Tangle Teezer // Standard. This is my third tangle teezer but they really are the best brush for my knotty hair and I just can't be without one.

Caudalie Grape Water // I've been taking this facial spray literally everywhere with me either using it as a spray toner before moisturising or spritzing it over my face at any opportunity to refresh my makeup, add some moisture back into my skin or just keep me awake!

Urban Decay De-Slick Make-Up Setting Spray // I've wanted to try an Urban Decay setting spray for so long and I've been using this everytime to set my makeup, I just feel like it really finishes everything off and I do believe it just sets everything in place and helps my base last longer.

Nars Lipgloss in Orgasm // The shade of this is so gorgeous and unlike any other kind of lip product I own, it's a pastel coral with a really subtle gold shimmer running all the way through it.

Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Luster // This is the product I was probably most excited about as I think bright cool toned lipsticks really suit my complexion. I love the pinky/purple shade and it has a really nice satin finish.

Nails Inc Gel Nail Varnish in Chiltern Street // This is the most pretty girly shade and gel finishes are my absolute fave for nails <3

The other products in the box are . . .
Rodial Dragon's Blood Sculpting Gel - I've not tried this but I just don't think my skin would benefit from it - it would be more suited to older skins.
Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner - too 'fat' for my set back eyes I'm afraid :( I'll stick to my Collection Fast Stroke . . .
James Read Day Tan - this does sound nice actually, I'm just so lazy with fake tanning but I will try it at some point.
Ribband Pastel Hair Ties - these are cute for around the house and I like the sorbet shades :)
Starskin Instaglam Foaming Peeling Perfection Puff - felt horrible on the skin and using it was such a faff, I threw it away after one use!
Starskin After Party Brightening Face Mask - this mask just kept sliding of my face! I just found it so messy - really not sold on this brand.

*I'm aware I haven't posted in months, I'm just rubbish wahhhh!*




  2. Great picks! I'm such a huge fan of Caudalie skin care and Illamasqua lipsticks so I'll have to check both of those out :)



Thank-you so much for all your comments! I read every single one of them :)
