I love a good beauty box, you can’t go wrong with a box full of skincare and make up treats in travel sizes so you can try them out and decide if you love them or not before splurging on the full size.
Beauty Boat are a new online store featuring high end brands like Alpha-H and Pai at up to 30% off Duty Free prices which you can shop from the luxury of your own home! (When we can’t all go on holiday right now to raid Duty Free!)
Beauty Boat’s Bon Voyage Discovery Box is a dinky treat packed full of an absolutely insane amount of high end products for the price tag! Currently you get 9 products for only £28 saving you a massive £40 off of retail price (this offer isn’t on for long though so now’s the time to treat yourself!)
One of the first things I was excited to see including in the Bon Voyage box was Sand & Sky’s Australian Pink Clay Mask (13g) and a Sand & Sky Mini Exfoliator (10g). The Australian Pink Clay Mask is a cult product in the skincare world and one I’ve been eyeing up for ages. I’ve used this mask a few times but I’m still not convinced on my thoughts, it’s very drying and I have Sahara desert dry skin already so I’m just not sure if it’s right for me. I hadn’t heard of the exfoliator before but had high hopes coming from such a well renowned brand and I haven’t been disappointed. I’ve loved it so much I’m actually considering ordering the full size. The exfoliator is gentle so suitable for sensitive skin and my face feels incredibly smooth after using it. The smell takes a little getting used to, it’s almost earthy, but this has become a firm favourite for sure.
I can’t believe I haven’t tried the Cult Classic Egyptian Magic Multi Purpose Cream 7.5ml yet! This magic little balm can be used for almost anything, lips, cuticles, dry skin and so much more! You only need a little bit too so this little pot is going to last me ages.
Alpha-H is a brand I’ve been wanting for try for a while after hearing such wonderful things about their Liquid Gold exfoliator so the Balancing Cleanser Rose (30ml) was a welcome addition! I adore rose scented products and have not been disappointed, a gentle milk cleanser with added Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, I’ve loved using this in the morning to refresh my face before starting my day.
I’ve used a few different products from Balance Me over the years and really enjoyed them, the Vitamin C Repair Serum (7ml) is brightening and hydrating, things my dry skin loves to hear, looking forward to giving this a go!
Can you really go wrong with a good eye patch for a pamper night? A set of Patchology FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels(1 pair) are included in the box. They’re instantly soothing and help to reduce puffiness (much need for all the sleepless nights I get having a little one!) I also love to keep eye patches in the fridge to make them extra cool.
Again a product I’ve used before and loved, Eyeko’s Black Magic Mascara (4ml) (not pictured as the toddler stole it) is a volumising mascara that lasts well throughout the day and has minimal flaking. I also love having travel size mascaras as they don’t dry out before you’ve used them up!
As a pale girl tan is something I tend to steer clear of with the fear that it’ll make me look like a wootsit! That being said I’ve always been intrigued by the Isle of Paradise Tanning range. Beauty Boat have included a medium Tanning Water (60ml) in the Bon Vouage Edit so I thought I’d give it a whirl and I’ve been pleasantly surprised, it applies clear and has a lovely scent, it can be used on your face and body. It gave a lovely subtle warm glow to my skin without the horrible orange undertone that most tans have, I’m excited to keep using this!
The final product made me feel like I was back in the 90’s! The INC.redible Roller Baby The Original Rollerball Gloss (7ml) is a full size non sticky peach tinted gloss perfect for popping in your handbag.
I’m loving the selection of products in the Beauty Boat Bon Voyage Discovery Box and still can’t get over the bargain price tag. The Beauty Boat site is definitely worth checking out if you need to stock up on some new skincare, there’s so many bargains to find!
