Latest In Beauty Capital FM Best Of Summer Beauty Box

It's been a while since I've talked beauty boxes. To be totally honest it has to be a pretty special box to catch my eye or impress, over the years I've had some that just haven't been worth pennies I've forked out for them and it's resulted in me not being subscribed to any!7

I was recently contacted by Latest In Beauty and was told all about their Best Of Summer box being released by them this month partnered with the fabulous Capital FM! 
After having a sneak peek at what was featured in the box, of course I took the opportunity to own one of my very own!
Unlike other beauty boxes Latest In Beauty is a non-subscription beauty box service, so you can pick and choose which one/s of the seasonal boxes you want - alot easier in my opinion, no commitments is good with me!

This particular box is in collaboration with Capital FM and is jam-packed with 10 amazing beauty products and a couple of promo codes for this sizzling summer!
First of all I just want to say how impressed I am at the packing of the box. That may sounds stupid but this thing was packed to the brim, with everything having a perfect little slot and position, I was so impressed at how it all fit in there! (I obviously tried to put it all back in and failed miserably aswell!)

 The range of brands and different types of products is brilliant, there's everything from mascara to dry shampoo to lip balm! Most of them are full sized items which made me really happy and I actually hadn't tried any of these items before which made it even better!
 List of products included : 

CARMEX Moisture Plus Lip Balm In Berry
I'm a big Carmex fan and I love that these are so easy to apply - no sticking fingers in pots needed! Plus this has a hint of colour which is perfect for summer, I hate it when my lipsticks melt!

COLAB Sheer + Invisible Paris Floral Fragrance Dry Shampoo
I was SO pleased to find this in the box as I have been dying to try this stuff out! I'm a huge fan of Ruth and have heard amazing things about this range so I'll be breaking my dry shampoo fear for this mini bottle! (It smells delish!)

DR. ORGANIC Dead Sea Minerals Bio-Plasma Mud Mask
Face masks are my favourite little pampering treat to do each week and I am always up for trying newbies! My mum spotted this and mentioned how much she loves the brand so I'm really loooking forward to giving this a go! My skin is in dire need of a detox.

FUDGE URBAN Hair Art Spray - Violet Haze
YES! Hair chalk.... but in a spray! SO much easier and washes straight out! The perfect way to funk up your do without permanent colouring.

HAWAIIAN TROPIC Satin Protection Ultra Radiance SPF 30
I love this brand and it's fairly expensive even for these miniature bottles, this is going to come in so handy for day trips out in the sunshine when I'm only taking a small bag!

I LOVE.... Perfectly Peachy Bath & Shower Creme Sachet
I'm really looking forward to trying this fresh and fruity body wash - it also comes with a great how-to guide on checking your breasts and what symptoms to look out for which I'll be keeping in my bathroom from now on.

MALIN & GOETZ trio - Cleanser, Moisturiser, Lip Balm
A few more miniatures here - and a brand in which I've never tried. These are only small so will only provide a few uses but it's a great way to try out something I probably wouldn't have before. I popped on a bit of the lip balm earlier and it felt gorgeous!

MUA Mega Volume Mascara
Can't say no to a new mascara really can you!?

MUA Eyeshadow Palette
Basically summer in a palette here - I know MUA isn't the most expensive brand but still this is a fab product to be included in the summer box! The colours are fun and vibrant and will be so much fun to play around with.

NAILS INC Gel Effect Nail Polish 
Last but not least but favourite product of the bunch, I've already painted my nails with this ( as you may have spotted it on Instagram!) - the shade is a beautiful aqua green/blue and reminds me alot of Tiffany & Co! I'm hoping the fact that it's a gel effect polish will make it last a little bit longer than my usual 'chipped after a day' nails too!

There's also 2 cheeky discount codes included for a couple of the brands too, in which you can save upto 20%!

As I mentioned previously, the box is £17.95 - which I think is fantastic value for the amount you get inside! The nail polish alone I'd happily pay £7-8 for! If you want to check it out just clickedy click - here!
