Selfridges Summer Beauty Box


While I love a good beauty haul (what girl doesn’t?) I have never quite got on with beauty boxes.

Every time I’ve received one, I’ve rushed to the letterbox only to be left disappointed by the contents. However, thanks to a certain luxury department store, my opinion has just changed – I am now a beauty box convert.

As you probably already know, Selfridges Beauty Boxes aren’t just any beauty boxes, they are the mother of all beauty boxes.

Usually selling out within minutes of launching, they are laden with goodies which will have any girl sharpening her virtual elbows, ready to get her share. With big name brands on board, these never disappoint, and I believe that the latest just so happens to be their best yet.

The Selfridges Summer Beauty Box had me beaming from ear-to-ear. Crammed with many of my favourite brands, including Caudalie, Tangle Teezer, Models Own and Molton Brown, it is serious pampering heaven.
Priced at just £25, but with a retail value of around £70, it is an utter bargain and its handy travel sizes make it the perfect pre-holiday treat. Here’s what it contains:

– Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer

– Models Own Neon Nail Varnish

– Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray 50ml

– Molton Brown Aqua Shower Gel 100ml

– Caudalie Beauty Elixir 30ml

– St. Tropez Instant Glow Face Lotion 50ml

– Jane Tran Hair Clips

– Erborian BB Cream 12ml

– Lancaster After Sun 40ml

– St. Tropez exclusive in-store offer card


While the neon pink Models Own nail varnish instantly caught my girly magpie eye, it was the Aqua  Splash Tangle Teezer brush which had me most excited. I am a huge fan of Tangle Teezer, and this one left me with silky smooth tresses, even post-swim. A must-have for your beach bag and for brushing through matted, salty waves.

Meanwhile, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a firm favourite among beauty editors and celebrities, including Victoria Beckham. This plant-based wonder smoothes features, tightens pores, and gives the complexion a burst of radiance. It’s a fab base for make-up, but I’ve been using it to reawaken and reenergise skin throughout the day.

I was also extremely excited to get my mitts on the Erborian BB Cream, which is renowned in Korea for transforming skin, leaving it baby perfect and oh-so-soft. This 5-in-1 cream contains a highly concentrated combination of herbs, which are used throughout Asia for their anti-aging properties. The cream also does a great job of concealing imperfections, helping to protect the skin against the sun (it has an SPF of 25) and nourishing the face to leave a velvety soft texture.

To add to my healthy summer glow, I’ll also be using the St Tropez Instant Glow Face Lotion and the Lancaster Tan Maximiser come holiday season. Oh, and while I’m at it, perhaps I’ll add to my suitcase stash with one of Selfridges many divine beauty gift sets.

Beach goddesses, eat your heart out…

With a very limited number of boxes available, all sold exclusively at Selfridges.com for home delivery and Click & Collect, the Summer Beauty Box won’t be around for long.  Find out how to reserve yours HERE
