Stella X Latest in Beauty Edit

(Features press sample - see disclaimer)

Latest in Beauty is renowned for their collection boxes, they're one of my favourite aspects of the brand and hot on the tail of their Beauty at Home Box is the Stella X Latest in Beauty Box! The box features only the best products found in the beauty cupboards at Stella Magazine - think the best of the best with the Smart Beauty stamp of approval. 

We’ve joined forces with Stella to bring you Smart Beauty - The Archive edit, worth over £177 and based on Beauty Director Sonia Haria’s notable weekly column. Get ready to make smart choices with 12 products from the likes of Sisley, Estée Lauder, Elemis and Marc Jacobs Beauty for £45.

Inside the box, you'll find twelve fabulous products including three full-size items - everything else is made up of generous sizes from brands such as REN Skincare, Sisley and Elemis. The three full-size items include Cool Girl Barely There Texturising Mist (£25.00), 111 Skin Illuminating Eye Mask (£12.00) and Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick (£25.00) all of which total more than the £45.00 box cost.

I'm sure you can see why I love them so much! 

There are a few new products to me that I'm super intrigued to try as well as a couple of old favourites. The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is a product I've loved for many years, the intensely hydrating repair serum significantly reduces the look of key signs of ageing while harnessing antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to help lock in moisture. It's one of the best serums I've used and I wish I could afford to use it all the time!

The REN Clean Skincare Clean Screen Mineral SPF30 is what I've been using throughout lockdown while it's been sunny. The sunscreen is the ideal no-shine, sensitive-skin-friendly sun protection, all in a cream that's easily absorbed, and easily incorporated into your daily skincare routine. Better yet, it won't clog pores, cause allergies or irritate sensitive skin. It's completely mattifying and works so well under your foundation too, I won't be using anything else this summer. 

I'm gonna give you a quick rundown on my top picks from this box from the products I haven't tried before: 

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm 
I'm relatively new to Elemis as a whole but I've really loved the odd samples and products I've tried over the last year. I'm a sucker for a cleansing balm and this powerful, deep cleansing balm dissolves makeup, daily grime and pollutants to leave skin intensely cleansed, nourished and glowing. It's so soft and buttery and really melts into the skin, I've been super impressed with this. 

Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask
The Black Rose Cream Mask helps to provide a shot of instant youth. The silky, luxurious cream mask is a comforting treatment for tired, dull or dehydrated skin, working to restore hydration and glow - I've never tried anything from Sisley before because woah it is pricey but this is beautiful and made such a difference to my skin. Not the best news for my bank balance oops!

Filorga Oxygen Peel
I'm a big fan of skin peels but this is probably the most potent I've ever used - the micro-peeling, oxygen-replenishing lotion renews skin with a triple-action formula that resurfaces, plumps and reoxygenates the skin using a potent cocktail of AHAs. 

Shiseido Vital Perfection Uplifting & Firming Cream
This is lovely, the formula is soft and bouncy and it helps you achieve a lifted and tightened look. The silky cream fights loss of elasticity, wrinkles and dark spots to leave skin moisturised, tightened, resilient and radiant. It's really great and one I would definitely look to buying in full-size.

Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules
I'm a sucker for Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules - I usually use the retinol line so intrigued to give these a go. The triple-powered capsules deliver a lightweight, silky-smooth serum that helps to maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin while targeting visible signs of ageing.

The Stella X Latest in Beauty Edit is available to order now for £45.00 via Latest in Beauty. Delivery is taking a little longer due to the current pandemic but that's the case with everything at the moment. 

It's a great way to pamper yourself at home or you could send one to a friend who is self-isolating!
