Selfridges Summer Beauty Box Review



So Selfridges with its iconic and majestic store, once again released another Limited edition box and these are such a bargain for the one off price. Yes its £25 plus the additional to post yet your getting a RRP of £70 worth of product, they are high end with amazing sizes. I think they may aim it at being a regular quarterly release as they do so well. Now the Summer beauty box was being hailed as having 9 beauty must haves for the summer and city escapes. 

Again i have amazing friends who help a friend in beauty need when she needs it. So thank you my dear lovely friend. As i seem to have the worst luck that all the deals come out on the week before I'm paid. Now i should know this by now and put some aside. As this box really is worth the £25 price tag in my opinion. 

Selfridges - Summer beauty box 

So the Contents are : 

  • Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer

  • Models Own Neon Nail Varnish

  • Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray 50ml

  • Molton Brown Blissful Templetree Shower Gel 100ml

  • Caudalie Beauty Elixir 30ml

  • St. Tropez Instant Glow Face Lotion 50ml

  • Jane Tran Hair Clips

  • Erborian BB Cream 12ml

  • Lancaster After Sun 40m

  • St. Tropez exclusive in-store offer card

  • Aqua splash Tangle Teezer and Jane Tran hair clips 

    Full sized tangle teezer which ive been dying to try for ages as my hair mattes like mad, due to the humidity and the sheer amount of product i use.  So i cannot wait to read the info to properly use it. 
    Now i really love these neon Jane Tran hair clips as they are summery plus they are perfect as I'm forever loosing my hair clips or they are small, bad quality ones that snap with my thick hair.
    So these will add a lovely pop of colour over the Summer period. 

    St Tropez Glow face lotion, Bumble and Bumble Surf spray, Lancaster After sun 
    St Tropez In-store Offer card

    So this section i have placed the tanning and hair care really within the box, so the St Tropez card is an offer running in-store to have a tan, present this card then you will be given some St Tropez goodies. Will be passing this onto my sister in law as i cant leave the house to have tanning treatments, so I will use the St Tropez gradual face tanner to help give me a warmer glow, seeing that I'm housebound and pale as casper the friendly ghost this will be a welcome treat to use over the coming weeks. As will the Bumble and Bumble Hair surf spray, as this is being raved on the bloggersphere, to add texture and that beach looking light curl look. Now my hair is naturally curly so i don't need a lot of this when i apply, a spray with my usual hair serum gives me a lovely loose curl look. 

    Erborian BB cream and Caudalie Beauty Elixir 

    So Erborium is a company i know only though just passing mentions, Korean brand so home to the birth of BB creams. Im happy its a Korean BB cream as it will be doing what it was planned for and not just a tinted moisturiser, with heat and humid weather the last thing you need is full coverage makeup sliding off your face. So I'm excited to try this one plus has a SPF of 25.
    Caudalie Beauty Elixir looks like a really refreshing spray to use for hydrating the skin in summer to prevent skin damage. Its a well known brand to me and i like this, plus the smell is really nice. So again i will be using this as I'm loving hydrating toning mists.

    Models Own Nail polish and Molton Brown Temple-tree Shower-gel

     Finally no more winter inspired Nail polish colours, you might think I'm mad raving about a neon pink polish but really, i was either getting dusky pinks and dark reds in every beauty box over winter, so its become the main colour i own in my polish collection. Now thats not a bad thing but id love new bold and bright colours to try. Plus being a Models own polish, if it is good i know its affordable to me when i want to add to my collection.

    Molton Brown is a lovely company that offers some of the most innovative and luxurious bath and shower oils I've had the pleasure in trying. They also now do Perfume scents with other accessories and  products  to make the art of relaxing a pleasure to be part of. By that i mean that this is for one of those days you need a big old bubbly bath or hot shower to relief the aches and pains, candles and maybe additional needs to the mix. There bottles are perfectly proportioned and i also love the colours of the product its-self. This vivid blue reminds me of a tropical sea. 

    So i love this box and you get to see them before you buy, which is the major bonus as for £25 plus the postage on top. They are not cheap, but if its products you are wanting to try or needing then when you added up just the Tangle teezer price alone, then thats half the boxes price already. 
    I could not be happier with this selection and really hope they continue to release them (not the goody bags as they were a fail to many people) as these boxes you know are brands which will add a little bit of a tingly feeling when you use them. 
    Plus its perfect if your going away as the sizes are enough for a weeks holiday plus what more could you need when your over there ?

     So did you grab a Selfridges Summer box ? Have you tried any of the boxes previously released ?

    2. i got this box and all the previous ones ,love the fact they are always good value and have good products in and if there is something you dont want it makes a good present filler.the erborian brand is lovely and the milton brown gel is already stashed in holiday bag ready.
