I flipping love a mini product, don’t you? And if you know any students that are heading off to university this autumn, this gorgeous Estée Lauder #Gameface beauty box, specially curated to be the ultimate Freshers survival kit, is just the perfect gift to see them off with a big smile on their faces. I wrote recently about taking the leap from home to uni, and it’s a daunting prospect for even the most confident student, so anything that’s going to give them a lift – and make them look and feel their best too – is most welcome. Also, for most new students, money is really tight, so this many products are going to be really welcome, especially when the box contains so many brilliant Estée brands.
Having said all that, I actually think this beautiful box would be the perfect gift (and let’s not discount the joy of self gifting here) for any beauty lover. So let’s have a more in-depth at some of the products in the box. Worth over £69 in total, the box contains sample sizes of some of the most iconic products from Estée brands:
Clinique 2-in-1 Cleansing Micellar Gel + Light Makeup Remover, 30ml – this lovely, clear gel-to-water formula dissolves make up and cleanses the face with no rinsing required – just tissue off. Perfect for late nights!
Estée Lauder DayWear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant 24H-Moisture Creme SPF 15, 15ml – everyone should be using a daily sunscreen and this anti-oxidant powerhouse of a moisturiser includes a broad-spectrum sunscreen as well as providing round the clock moisture.
Glamglow Gravitymud™ Firming treatment, 15g – this fun, peel off facemask transforms from white to silver as it dries. It’s great for toning and Instagram, obvs!
Origins Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Mask to quench skin’s thirst, 15ml – this super-rich mask is a perfect treat for dehydrated skin, replenishing moisture while you sleep.
Smashbox Super Fan Mascara, Black, 6ml – I love this teeny mascara. It’s the perfect size to slip into the tiniest of purses and promises lengthened, fanned out lashes without any clumping.
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Ruby, 2.25g – a moisturising, balm-like lip colour that’s loaded with deep burgundy colour, in the cutest, teeniest little size.
MAC Strobe Cream, Pinklite, 6ml – MAC’s iconic moisturising strobe cream, great for the skin and packed with iridescent particles for instant glow. Mix with foundation for an all-over glow, or dot onto cheekbones or brows as a cream highlighter.
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish, 40ml – perfect for adding volume and texture to hair when styling, but also great while you’re out and about to give hair a quick zhuzh (never know how to spell that word).
PLUS: there’s a special code inside the box that will give you 15% off your next order over £30 at any of the brands featured in the box.
