Latest in Beauty & Hip and Healthy Summer Glow Box

The Latest in Beauty Box in collaboration with Hip and Healthy landed on my doorstep a couple of days ago and I couldn’t wait to share the contents with you.

I don’t really subscribe to any beauty box subscriptions, but when I found out about Latest in Beauty I was intrigued because they offer limited edition boxes rather than the usual monthly subscription service. They also have a build your box service where you can select what products you would like to include in your box.

Hip and Health is a brand I recently discovered and really like. I attended one of their events recently and came away full of health, nutrition and beauty tips that I have been applying to my daily life. So when I heard they had collaborated with Latest in Beauty to bring out a Summer Glow Box, I decided to order it

I have only just received the box so this isn’t a proper review but just a sneak peek at the contents

James Read Sleep Mask Tan (25ml)
Not a product I would usually get excited about but after hearing about a tanning product that launched for darker skin tones and reading that it simply gives darker skin tones a glow, I’m curious to try this to see if it does anything to my dark skin. Described as combining skin-beautifying ingredients with a touch of self-tan. “The hydrating gel formula is infused with skincare essentials including Aloe Vera, Cucumber, Hyaluronic Acid and Red Algae, to moisturise and soothe the skin overnight.”

Nourish Golden Glow Toning Body Shimmer (2ml)
It’ s infused with golden resins of Frankincense and Myrrh, along with Neroli oil and shimmer to give skin a natural, sun-kissed radiance, One I’m going to be trying out along my dĂ©colletage (love that word) and arms.

Melvita Rose Extraordinary Water (25ml)
Have been wanting to try Melvita for a while so I'm excited to test this out. Described as being rich in Rose essential water, “this delicately scented formula combines the repairing and astringent properties of Rose floral water with the invigorating properties of Marsh clover. It prepares skin perfectly, leaving it ready for your daytime moisturiser.”

Green People, Sun Lotion SPF 15 with Tan Accelerator (20ml)
Not too sure about the tan accelerating idea of this on my skin! But I love that Green People Sun Lotions are made with pure, great quality ingredients making them suitable for those with sensitive skin.

Inner Me Daily 4 Me The Hectic Years 30+ (4 week supply)
Time to confess, I actually got this box mainly because of Inner Me. A firm believer in you are what you eat, I’m a big fan of supplements and have been wanting to try Inner Me vitamins for a while, so when I saw that you got a full month’s supply of four different vitamins I jumped on it. A months supply usually retails for £30 so to get them in the box alongside all the other samples for £16.95 is fantastic value and I can’t wait to try them out. Inner Me vitamins are formulated specifically for women, and this Daily 4 includes a range of carefully selected supplements, multivitamin and mineral tablets. Not only do they cover all those daily needs to support our hectic lifestyles, but also they work to get your skin glowing from the inside out.

Moa The Green Balm (15ml)
Have heard so many glowing reviews about this little balm, so looking forward to testing it out. This 100% organic super green balm is crammed with natural ingredients including Yarrow; known for it’s antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits. It can be used on sunburns, eczema, dry skin - etc.

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm (4.25g)
Already one I’m currently using so it’s great to have a back up ready. Burt’s Bees 100% natural must-have lip balms are made from beeswax, which conditions skin, while antioxidant Vitamin E moisturises.

Dragonfly Tea (2x sachets)
I love tea!  In my opinion teatime helps soothe most issues away or at least helps you pause and rethink how bad it really is. I love that herbal teas have additional benefits and I usually add them into my essential daily water intake. The two I was sent are the Moonlight Jasmine and the Organic White Tea. 

Ohso Good for you Chocolate (2x bars)
Ok I decided to try one of these as I type. Seriously the little bars were just calling out to me, encouraging me to believe their miniature sizes make them ok to consume chocolate willy nilly. Luckily they do! The ultimate healthy treat which helps you de-bloat by delivering 3x more good bacteria to your gut than dairy alternatives. Who said chocolate wasn't good for you?!

Archeia Minerals for Hair Skin and Nails (7.5 days supply)
Another supplement. I haven’t heard of Archeia before, so looking forward to finding out more about the brand. Described as containing minerals packed full of ingredients proven to support the formation of collagen and to protect the cells of your body from free radical damage, a major cause of wrinkles, thinning hair and a dull complexion.

Nailberry Nail Polish (15ml)
A pretty pastel colour, Nailberry nail polishes are one of kind as they are all Free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP and synthetic Camphor. They are also cruelty free.

Salt Resort Wear £20 Voucher
Salt is the ultimate destination for beach and resort wear offering everything from super-luxe swimwear to the latest must-have holiday accessories.  Will be checking them out and hoping it inspires another holiday trip soon
The box retails for £16.95 and is available from
