I love trying out beauty boxes or bags as it is always a great way to either buy your favourite products for a fraction of the cost or to try new things you wouldn’t usually buy.
I wanted to share my thoughts on the Beauty Expert Collection: Icons Edition
The bag contains 6 iconic products worth £170:
Within the bag you receive the following products as well as a leaflet explaining more about each product:
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® All-Over Miracle Oil (100ml)
I have been using this oil for about a year now as it is a great multi purpose lightweight oil. I usually use it on my face every few evenings if I need an extra bit of moisture as some of my acne creams can be very drying. It is also ideal to use on your body, especially dry ankles or elbows! You can even put it on the ends of your hair. It smells fab and a little goes a long way. It was great to get one in this set as I had nearly run out!
Molton Brown Bath & Shower Gel (100ml) in one of the following: Heavenly Gingerlily/Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose/Suma Ginseng/Rhubarb & Rose
Molton Brown have always been a favourite of mine for luxury bath and home products. They can often be expensive but I usually treat myself to a body wash in the sales. This is a great way to try the brand if you haven’t before and you will receive one of the above scents. The bottle is a good size too.
NIOD Photography Fluid, Opacity 12% (30ml)
I hadn’t heard of this brand or tried this before so was quite excited to give it a go. It claims to basically become a photography filter for your skin in real life. It helps to smooth your skin out and hide any imperfections and give you a natural radiance. You can wear it on its own if you are going for a natural look or you can put it on under your make up. I have used it a couple of times now and have been impressed with the finish.
Eve Lom Cleanser (100ml)
This is something I had wanted to try for a very long time but couldn’t justify buying it as it’s usually about £50-60 for a pot this size! It comes with a muslin cloth for you to try too and has been compared a lot to Liz Earle cleanse and polish. I have been using it for a week now and you only need a small amount to cleanse your face. It smells really nice and has left my skin feeling very clean and soft and I would love to buy it again when I run out so will probably look into getting a set where it’s included again!
Babor Skinovage Reactivating Eye Cream (15ml)
Not a brand I had tried before but now I am in my 30s it’s about time I started using an eye cream and more anti aging products. I am happy that this is a lightweight eye cream as I always worry about putting anything too thick near my eyes! It soaked in well and can be applied thinly at night or even in the morning if you need a bit of a boost when you have tired eyes.
NUXE Reve de Miel Ultra Comforting Face Balm (50ml)
Nuxe has always been a favourite brand of mine for skincare, I love their oil and was excited to try this face balm. It is a luxurious honey infused face cream that can be applied day or night and it smells so good! I was impressed how well it soaked in and by using it before bed the nights I don’t use my oil it helped to keep my face hydrated. I also put a small amount on in the morning too and it soaks in well and doesnt leave my face greasy.
I think this is amazing value for £79 and for a limited time if you use code SARAH_20 you can get an additional 20% off making it only £63.20!
Something else I love about Beauty Expert is that if you spend over £35 you get to pick a free gift too!
