I have said it many times before, but Latest In Beauty create some of the best, if not the best, beauty boxes in the UK. They work with some amazing companies and influencers, as well as having a 'pick n mix' style subscription box service too. One of their most recent collaboration is the The Sunday Times Style x Latest In Beauty: The India Knight Edit and I was lucky enough to receive one to rave about here on my blog.
A little background information on India Knight - She is the Sunday Times Style's award-winning writer and samples the latest products, hand-picking the best beauty items for her weekly column. Everything in this box has been tried, tested and approved by India and this curated edit is made up of the best makeup, skincare and haircare, as seen in The Sunday Times Style. There are ten products within this box, and six of them are full sizes! Let's take a look inside...
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% (30ml Full Size) RRP £5.00
This is a potent serum which has been designed to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes, pores and congestion by regulating sebum production. I have quite enlarged pores and I haven't actually tried anything from The Ordinary before, even though it is highly raved about, so I am definitely looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about.
BBB London Ultimate Brow Arch Definer in Saffron (0.3g Full Size) RRP £22.00
I haven't tried this English brow specialist brand before, and this Ultimate Arch Definer looks incredible, as it is dual-ended, featuring a triangular brow pencil on one end, and a super soft oval shaped brush on the other end, so that you can blend those brows to perfection. I received the shade Saffron, which has a red undertone to it, so whilst it won't suit my colouring, I will definitely be able to pass this on and I will be on the look-out for my shade as it looks so good!
Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick in Dominate (0.42g Deluxe Sample Size)
I bloody love Laura Mercier products, as they really are some of the best on the market. Their formulas always kick butt, and they are made from the highest quality ingredients. Dominate is a bright red shade, and is going to be perfect for the upcoming festive season!
Charlotte Mensah Manketti Hair Oil (100ml Full Size) RRP £48.00
Wowzers, this product alone is worth more than the entire box is to buy! I haven't tried anything from Charlotte Mensah before, and considering it is sold at the likes of Space NK, I am guessing it is a pretty luxe brand! The Manketti Hair Oil restores dull and dehydrated hair by keeping it nourished and hydrated. You only need to apply a small amount through wet or dry hair and massage it into the scalp. My hair hates the cold, as do I, and so this is going to be a really lovely treat of a product to keep my hair looking and feeling amazing.
Kiehl's Creme De Corps Nourishing Dry Body Oil (40ml Deluxe Sample Size)
If you read my blog often, you may know I am obsessed with Kiehl's skincare and body care products. I have tried their Dry Body Oil before, and it is incredible at reinvigorating dry skin. I also like to pop a couple of drops in my bath before bedtime, as it makes the water silky soft, as it does my skin. Kiehl's create products with natural, high quality ingredients, and they really are a treat for the skin.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix (15ml Deluxe Sample Size)
I haven't tried Elemis for quite a while now, but I have tried a lot of their products previously, and again, they create some of the most amazing skincare products, with their ranges often featured in some of the top salons and spas. This is a comforting night cream that smooths and revitalises the skin, and even promises to reduce the 'morning pillow face' effect - I cannot wait to try this!
Sam McKnight Cool Girl Barely There Texture Mist (250ml Full Size) RRP £25.00
One of the reasons I love beauty boxes so much is that you get to try brands and products you may not normally come across. I haven't tried anything from Sam McKnight before, and as someone who has fine, limp hair, I am looking forward to trying out this Texture Mist to add some fabulousness to my hair. As well as being a Texture Mist, this also fragrances the hair due to a fresh, floral and spicy scent which was made with perfumer Lyn Harris!
Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray (200ml Full Size) RRP £24.00
This bottle looks amazing before I even know what's in it! I have tried Color Wow before, but not for a long time, and certainly not this chrome fancy number. The Supernatural Spray is a silicone-free spray that combats frizz, controls moisture levels and smooths every single strand of hair. It is also a humidity-proofing treatment that protects the hair for up to 72 hours, and so I am definitely going to be popping this in my suitcase for Orlando.
Zoeva Heritage Eye Crayon (1.4g Full Size) RRP £11.00
Eye crayons are my absolute jam at the moment. They are so quick and easy to use, yet super effective at the same time. They can be used all over the lid, or with other shades, or even as an eyeliner. I love Zoeva as a brand, they make incredible eyeshadows, and this Eye Crayon is no different. I have the shade Phonology which is a gorgeous metallic bronze shade. The formula is smudge and budge proof and it even comes with a little hidden sharpener for when you want to use it as an eyeliner.
Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator (15ml Deluxe Sample Size)
This is a cult-skincare favourite amongst so many people. The Clinique Moisture Surge is a gel moisturiser, so it is cool and soothing on the skin, whilst keeping the skin nourished and hydrated throughout the day. I love getting smaller sizes of skincare products as I travel quite a bit, as my family live a couple of hours from me, and it saves me having to take full, heavy pots.
Wow, that was certainly some box! The Sunday Times Style x Latest In Beauty: The India Knight Edit retails for £40.00, yet has a retail value of £210.00!!!! So, you are saving a whopping £170.00, and if you pop onto their website now, at the time of writing and posting this, they have an extra 20% off with code HAL20 here.
All the Loves,
