Cosmetips X Sarah Ashcroft Beauty Box – Over £400 worth of products for £110.

I normally would wait until the box was firmly in my hands and I had given the products a try before I post about something but I worry that if I wait that the box will completely set out – it is already extremely limited in stock and is such great value that I had to share. As soon as it launched I added it to my basket and it should be arriving any day.

I previously purchased their collaboration with Molly Mae where you got a box packed full of her favourites worth a total of £325 for just £110. This time it is even better with the box retailing at £110 but worth £409. Sarah Ashcroft isn’t someone who I have followed or have much knowledge of but from what I can see, she is a UK fashion and beauty influencer who rose to popularity due to her

RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner – worth £110.

An award winning lash serum which uses lipids, biotin and panthenol to condition and strengthen lashes whilst protecting from environmental damage, brittleness and breakages caused by lash styling. Lash serums are quite a pricey addition to your makeup routine but I have found them to be incredibly effective especially when you don’t wear a lot of makeup day to day. I am currently using the Lancôme Cils Booster Lash Revitalising Serum but have heard nothing but great things about Revitalash.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer – Egyptian Jasmine and Mandarin – Worth £27.

I have used Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer for years and it is one of the products that makes your hair look incredible, as soon as you have used it. They have released some great limited editions over recent years and hopefully this one is as good as the Elderflower and Rhubarb. I also picked up a travel sachet of Elasticizer in my recent Feel Unique Pick and Mix.

Dr Jart+ Colour Correcting Treatment – Worth £37.

One of my Mum’s favourite products, this green toned cream instantly gets rid of redness on the skin whilst soothing irritation. Formulated with a Centella Asiatica complex, which has been used both in Eastern Medicine and in nature for it’s skin calming properties. This is one I will pop away for when my mum needs a top up.

Huda Beauty Tiger Wild Obsessions Palette – Worth £27.

This isn’t a palette that I would have picked up had there been options to chose from, I much prefer the Nude and Brown range, plus the new Rose Quartz palette is stunning. The colours are probably a bit too yellow toned for me and may end up on my Depop – I have been quite ruthless with my makeup collection lately and it is a great way to sell your unused cosmetics and make some money.

Colour Wow Extra Mist-ical Shine Spray – Worth £26.

Since I have been having highlights in my hair I have found my hair is more prone to dullness. I am hoping that this adds a subtle shine without weighing my fine hair down. I haven’t tried much from the Colour Wow line but the products I have tried (the shampoo, conditioner and the dream coat) have been brilliant.

Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm – Worth £44.

Probably my favourite cleanser of all time, it removes makeup without any effort and leaves my skin glowing yet comfortable. I have mentioned it countless times and recommended it to everyone I know. I am currently working my way through a supersize of the Rose scent but this one is my favourite of all.

Seoulista Super Hydration Instant Facial – Worth £7.99.

Sheet masks are an integral part of K Beauty and Seoulista’s range are based on a combination of high performance ingredients and Korean innovation. This mask in particular contains hyaluronic acid, coconut and maple leaf to provide intense hydration and deep nourishment.

Ole Henriksen  Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner – Worth £23

With a combination of AHAs (Glycolic and Lactic) to smooth the surface of the skin, witch hazel water to balance oil and liquorice to sooth irritation, Glow2OH is gentle enough for daily use but can reduce the look of dark spots in just one week. I am hoping this is a super charged version of my Clinique Clarifying Lotion.

Slip Silk Skinnie Scrunchie – Worth £6.50

I have been eyeing up the brand Silk for the last couple of years, especially the Silk Pillowcases but it is one of those personal extravagances I just haven’t clicked checkout on. Perhaps this could convert me, especially as my naturally curly hair is heat damaged and prone to dryness.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze – Worth £22 and Brow Freeze Applicator – Worth £16.

My current favourite brow gel Benefit 24hr Brow Setter is on it’s last legs and I am hoping this will be a fitting replacement. Similar to the Benefit it is a clear formula which promises a firm hold alongside a feathery effect. I just hope it gives the same extreme fixing as the Benefit which has a slight crispiness in the nicest possible way.

Elemis Pro Collagen Rose Facial Oil – Worth £67.

I have tried the original Pro Collagen Facial Oil and the incredible Superfood Facial Oil but this edition is completely new to me. I love a facial oil, especially in winter and I would say that Elemis is one of the brands that I would pick if I could only ever use on brand for the rest of my life.

As you can see it is quite a collection of bestselling products, I can’t wait to get stuck in to trying them and will report back on my thoughts. Let me know if you have tried any of these products and if you are going to pick up one of the boxes.

    This box is going to be such a treat when it arrives!

    I love that there is a good mix of firm favourites, ones you want to try and ones you know you can sell. The Elemis products almost cover the value of the box and I have heard wonderful things about the Lash serum.

    I look forward to hearing your updated thoughts on the unknown / new to you bits.
