I feel like i got this box ages ago, which really i did, but I've been so out of my blogging sync I'm behind on all my box reviews I'm afraid.
So, the In Flight box was part of the Latest In Beauty, YOU range. The box contains pre,in and post flight essentials.
"Consider this your first class box of travelling beauty essentials"
everything in the box meets the strict 100ml liquid limits, so you are able to pack all of it in your hand luggage/carry on bag.
Now I'm not planning on flying anywhere soon (well i am, but more on that another day) but i thought this box looked great, it contained products i already love and new products for me to try. Which i think is the perfect mix, sometimes all new products aren't the best boxes.
Have i rambled enough? shall i just show you whats in it? i thought so.
LIB beauty boxes come in fairly small boxes, and this one contained so many products it was jam packed, it was like a puzzle trying to work out how to fit everything back in when I'd pulled it out!
I'll start with this, yes your eyes don't deceive you, it is a FULL SIZE O.P.I polish, yippeee. The colour is 'William Tell Me About It' Its a deep, purple/cherry/red/Burgundy colour. I think deep cherry is a good description. It'll be a great Autumn/Winter colour. A bit dark for 'Summer' i think. I cant wait to wear it, with big wooly jumpers and leggings.
Jurlique, Rosewater Balancing Mist. This is a hydrating mist to refresh the skin. The leaflet with the box, recommends using this while on the flight, great a idea yeah? I always find flying ruins my skin, it makes it so incredibly dry especially if I'm flying long haul (which isn't very often) I'll loving these refreshing sprays at the moment as well.
Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry. For giving your hair a little refreshment after a long flight. I love the mini cans, I tend to only get the mini cans rather than a large one, purely because i only really use dry shampoo on my fringe so a mini one last me ages. I've had larger cans in the past, but i find i just tend to lose them. I'm loving the cherry scent as well.
StriVectin-SH Age Protect SPF30, The sun cream has a lovely texture and a pretty pleasant scent. You're supposed to use sunscreen everyday on your face. This is only a 7ml sample, so it wont do much of my body, and as our 'Summer' is slowly fading away I'll probably just end up using this as a moisturiser. What intrigued me most about this little set is the wristband that was included, you're supposed to wear the band on a daily basis, and when it turns blue you are exposed to harmful UV radiation. I haven't yet tried it out. But I'm keen to see how it works.
Mythic Oil, one of my all time favourite products. This one is different though, its Mythic Oil, Colour Glow Oil Radiance Oil For Colour Treated Hair. It doesn't look or smell any different from regular Mythic Oil and I'm still going to use it even though my hair isn't colour treated.
Xen-Tan is a product I've been wanting to try for a long time, I've read so many good things about it. But wasn't sure if i really wanted to commit to a full size product as i don't tan all that often. This is a 30ml sample, how far that will go who knows, hopefully I'll be able to do both my legs with it. Its a weekly self-tan lotion in dark, I tend to go for dark as in the summer i naturally tan very well, and tend to go quite a dark golden colour, if i see enough sunshine!
Can't wait to try this out, and perhaps get a full size product.
A tin of mints, strange thing to get a beauty box. But i love them! I love cinnamon mints it reminds me of good times in America with my family. I also love the tin they come in, its like something some ones grandad would have. I plan to keep these in my car, as i think the tin is a bit bulky to keep in my handbag. When all the mints are gone, i will find a use for the tin as its just to nice to throw away.
Alfresco, Beauty Without Bites, Acqua D'Alfresco, is a natural insect repellent, its highly fragranced and smells like something that i just cant put my finger on it, i think its a bit sandal woody or cinnamon-y. It also contains botanical extracts, its pretty strong scented, so i don't really know how good that'll be a deterring the insects? Perhaps if it contained citronella.
Garnier BB cream samples. I'm sure if I've told you this before, but i much prefer the sample sachets to the full size product. I have no idea why i just do. I'm slowly getting a bit of a collection of theses now, so i really need to start using them.
One sachet of powdered Acai Berry, Acai Berries have great nutritional value. you add the sachet to a glass of water to help give your skin a radiance boost from the inside. Acai Berries are full of antioxidants, though I'm sure I've tried them and they don't have the most pleasant flavour?
And last but not least, Good to go anywhere, sanitising wipes. This handy pack contains 4 wipes of 3 different varieties. 1 disinfectant wipe, for making surfaces clean and safe 2 soft absorbent tissue, for wiping what ever you need to and 1 sanitising hand wipe, for cleaning your handies. I'm thinking by tissue they possible mean, like a blow your nose on tissue? i was hoping it might be some kind of wet wipe? anyway. its a pretty handy strip to keep in your hand bag or travel bag. I need to investigate where to buy these.
So that's the YOU; In Flight box?
I'm very pleased with it i must say.
What do you think?
Lots of Love
