The Latest in Beauty Style Summer Essentials Beauty Box // The Sunday Times

(Features press samples & affiliate links- see disclaimer

With the Summer Solstice having passed, it's time to talk about all things summer which means The Sunday Times Style Summer Essentials couldn't have been released at a more perfect time. The beauty edit features every beauty essential you could possibly need to get you through the Summer of 2022 covering skincare, brows, tanning and makeup. 

Worth an incredible £274, the box features eleven products from brands such as Iconic London, Olverum, Avant and The Body Shop - covering three major summer trends from bolder brows and brighter cheeks to glow-inducing skincare, it's going to be one you won't want to miss. 

Retailing at £48, the collection is available to order now with your chosen Iconic London Triple Precision Brow Definer shade. 

Let's have a look inside...

With eleven products included, six of which are full-size, the must-have summer edit of beauty staples will keep you looking and feeling your best. I find Latest in Beauty is always super generous with what they include so it is always worth the money.

The few products that aren't full-size are St.Tropez Gradual Tan, Olverum Dry Body Oil, Bumble & Bumble Invisible Oil Primer and Prai Beauty Upper Arm Cream. To be completely honest, all of the products are a really great size so you don't even notice that they're sample size. I can't wait to try the gradual tanner - I've heard such good things about it. 

I'm familiar with most brands and products included within the box but I'll pick out the products I'm most excited about and share some more details on them. 

I have a bit of a thing for cleansers at the moment so I'm super intrigued to try this one from Nuxe. The gentle and refreshing cleansing gel mask aims to wash away impurities and build-up leaving skin free from unwanted pollutants. The cleansing face mask is infused with soothing, hydrating Rose Floral Water, which is perfect for anyone with sensitive skin as it helps to calm irritation. If you love the smell of rose you'll really like this. 

When I tell you I squealed when I saw this... I have been missing something like this in my makeup bag for so long. Combining three brow-enhancing benefits in one tool, Iconic London's Triple Precision Brow Definer works to shape, define and fill in brows. Smudge-resistant and long-wearing for up to twelve hours, the Brow Definer is perfect for long-lasting definition. I'm a big fan.

Skin Shield is a moisturising and priming SPF-rich day cream that protects your skin from sunlight, screen light, pollution and infrared light, leaving your skin with a peachy tint and deliciously dewy finish. Containing niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3) and vitamin E for antioxidant protection - it is also non-comedogenic, oil-free, water-resistant and non-greasy. I wasn't sure at first but have quite liked using it once I understood the product a bit more. I find Skingredients to be such a fascinating brand.

This has rave review after rave review and I can totally see why after I've been using it the last week. The lightweight serum gives a fresh-faced, healthy-looking glow making it perfect for those of us with busy lives. The gel-like texture sinks in quickly, leaves no stickiness and leaves skin looking and feeling great. I don't like the pipette, it's too small for the consistency of the serum but otherwise, it's a fab product. 

The Latest in Beauty & The Sunday Times Style Summer Essentials Beauty Box is available to purchase now directly through the Latest in Beauty website. You can choose your box by what Iconic London Brow Definer shade would be perfect for you too - fab, right?
