Latest In Beauty Cosmopolitan Holiday Edit

Beauty subscription boxes are something I never really saw myself trying, I'm a bit skeptical about spending my money on a box of products that may not really interest me however I've become a lot better at trying and experiencing new products lately, all thanks to the wonderful subscription services I've tried. I will admit that some boxes can be a little off-putting, especially if they just contain a load of samples, but some are really worth the money and contain full-size products to try.

I recently picked up the Latest In Beauty Cosmopolitan Holiday Edit which I thought was totally new for this year but after a little research it seems it was also available last year. The beauty box contains £94 worth of holiday essential beauty products that you can grab for just £20, with a small  delivery charge of £3.95 unless you can find a discount code. Although I'm not a big holiday go-er it is nice for me to have some summer suited products in my collection and you never know, we may have a super hot summer here in the UK some day! I am super impressed with the contents of this box as you receive so many products, so let's take a look at the contents of this years Holiday Edit.

St Tropez Bronzing Sheet Mask (£6.40) I've never really used any tanning or bronzing products on my face and I've always had really good results from the St Tropez tanning range so I was really happy to receive this product. I am yet to try this but its simply a sheet face mask that claims to give the skin a bronzed glowing effect, I am usually a big failure at false tan but this sounds really simple.

Nails Inc Nail Polish - colours may vary (£12.00) Inside my box is the shade Notting Hill which is a super pretty hot, neon pink! I love Nails Inc when it comes to nails and this shade is so perfect for those lovely beach days, it will also look gorgeous on my toes.

Palmers Coconut Lip Balm (£1.99) Lip protection is an absolute must when it comes to summer and holiday season, the Palmers range is a great one to go for as it contains a great high SPF to protect the lips. I also have to mention that the Palmers range smells incredible, really perfect for getting you into the holiday mood.

MUA Luxe Ombre 3 Shade Highlighter Stick (£4.00) This is a new shade from the brand and I have to say its a great idea, a 3 in 1 product to give you a gorgeous glow. I've had this product previously in a different shade and the quality was really great for the price. Highlighter is a must product for me any time of the year and especially when the sun is shining.

Collection Speedy Blush - colours may vary (£3.99) I actually already have this shade in the Speedy Blush which is a shame as it would've been fab to try another but never-the-less, the idea of these subscription services is that you have no idea what you'll receive. I can't rate these blush sticks enough, super easy to apply, stay in place all day and come in a wide range of lovely shades.

Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara (£19.00) Waterproof mascara is a daily must for me especially if I am going anywhere warm or near the water, the Eyeko range has always been a really good one for me and I am really excited to try this new one. I really like using mini versions of products as I just find them easier to use and they are obviously super travel friendly.

Merci Handy Lollipop Hand Cleansing Gel (£2.99) I am a sucker for cute hand sanitisers and at first I thought this was by Bath & Body Works! The product is super cute and is such a great essential to have daily especially if you're on holiday, it also smells like sweets which is a win win situation.

Garner Skin Active Moisture Bomb Multi-Protecting Hydrating Mist (£9.99) I've actually seen this range floating around Boots recently and anything hydrating always reaches out to me. I love face mists as they are so refreshing, this one sounds really lovely and the fact that it is enclosed in a metal can means the mist will hopefully stay super cool perfect for those warmer days.

The Wet Brush - colours may vary (£11.99) I've always had a Tangle Teezer and also wanted to try this alternative, the brush is great and its a lot more comfortable to use in my opinion, I sadly didn't photograph this as I've been using it so much it looks a little gross! I really do highly recommend this brush over the Tangle Teezer.

Garner Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water (£1.99) Cleansing Water's have become so popular lately as they are just so quick and simple, this one always catches my eye thanks to the cute packaging! I've already been giving this product a go and its great for removing my initial makeup, before going in for a full deep cleanse.

Ladival DNA Repair Aftersun (£12.99) This is the first I've actually heard of this brand so as mentioned previously, subscription boxes are a great way to discover new brands. Aftersun is a real essential to have with you on holiday because it can be so easy to catch the sun a little too much, which usually ends up being rather painful.

Amongst this wonderful range of products you also receive a cute little cosmetics bag that could be used to carry your favourite items throughout the day. Overall I am really impressed with this beauty box, the value for money is fantastic and the range of products is really perfect for anyone looking to treat themselves before a holiday.
