Selfridges Summer Beauty Box 2015.

Surprise, surprise! New beauty box post from me?! ;) This time I'm here with Selfridges Summer 2015. Beauty Box!

Selfridges, also known as Selfridge & Co., is a chain of high end department stores in the United Kingdom, which also has a web site for "locals" and us, international shoppers. To be honest, until recently I had no idea that they also ship to Croatia but then I stumbled upon them, saw an amazing offer of beauty products, checked their shipping information and the rest is history. Since they carry brands which aren't easy accessible in Croatia, like Laura Mercier, Origins, Tom Ford, Nars, Charlotte Tilbury..., I am sure that you understand my new found love for this site.

Their Summer Beauty Box was my first purchase and it is so summery, fresh and happy, even by the way it looks, that I haven't regret it. It is white and bright yellow and holds 13 cosmetic products and an Alphabet Bags cosmetic case/bag.

Since the bag is big enough to hold all of the products that you get, and they are mostly nicely sized travel and full size products, this is not a small makeup bag for your purse. It is better for traveling, preferably to warm and sunny destinations, since the sign on the bag says "I'VE GOT 99 PROBLEMS BUT A BEACH AIN'T ONE".

The box will cost you 40 GBP, and by the claims of Selfridges, its worth is about 176 GBP. For Croatia, shipping will cost you additional 15 GBP, but if you order something with your friends, and share the shipping costs, it will naturally be less, and if you are from the EU, those will be all the costs (no custom).

My box came to Zagreb, Croatia, in about 4 days after my purchase.

The Box contains:
  • Alphabet Bags cosmetic case/bag
  • STARSKIN Instaglam foam peel perfect (some kind of sponge)
  • STARSKIN After Party Brightening (face mask)
  • RIBBAND Ribband Sorbet (elastic hair ties)
  • JAMES READ Day Tan SPF 15 (face self tan cream)
  • EYEKO Fat Eyeliner
  • NAILS INC Gel Nail Varnish Pink
  • ILLAMASQUA Lipstick Luster
  • NARS Mini Orgasm Lipgloss
  • RODIAL Dragons Blood Sculpting Gel 15ml
  • URBAN DECAY Setting Spray
  • CAUDALIE Grape Water 75ml
  • TANGLE TEEZER Original Blue with Pink
  • and a 10 GBP gift voucher (interesting for UK residents or those who will visit UK until 30th of August 2015)

Since there are lots of full sized products in the box, with pretty high prices, like Tangle Teezer (about 11 GBP), Eyeko eyeliner (about 12 GBP), Nails INC polish (about 10 GBP) and Illamasqua lipstick (about 19 GBP), in my opinion this was a great deal!

Illamasqua Luster lipstick, Nars Orgasm lipgloss, Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner

Selfridges Summer Beauty Box is currently sold out but I wanted to tell you about it nevertheless, and perhaps, inform you that Selfridges ships to many countries and carries brands like Laura Mercier and Tom Ford which, for instance, aren't available in Croatia. I am in no way connected with Selfridges. I bought my box with my own money.

What do you say? Is this box something for you? Do you buy at Selfridges?

Tell me....

Love, beautyandbrains007
