Review: Beauteque Head to Toe Fun in the Sun Bag

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Beauteque Head to Toe Fun in the Sun bag! I previously reviewed the Beauteque Head to Toe Skinfood bag which I absolutely adored so I was super excited to receive this bag for review too! 
Unfortunately customs seized my package and demanded to know what was inside before they would send it on, which is why I don't have any pictures of the postage, but this time my bag came contained in a bubble wrapped bag, and the cucumber gel was fully bubble wrapped which I was super glad to see!
As usual, this bag came with the little card detailing the prices and descriptions of everything that is in the bag. This bag costs $28USD plus $10.95 shipping.

Ostia Cucumber Soothing Gel - $15.50
Soothe skin with this rich cucumber gel. It will offer a cooling and soothing relief.
To Use: Apply all over skin, especially in sunburned areas.
The phallic packaging of this product is guaranteed to cause giggles to any adults in the room, as is the bumpy texture of the plastic! I'm super interested to use this product, but I haven't been sunburnt in about 7 years (I may be a vampire) and I don't feel too hot usually, so I don't know how helpful this will be for me personally!

Cellabon Naturatox UV Essence - $35.00
This 3-in-1 miracle product offers protection from UV rays, moisturising properties, and acts as a base to set your makeup all day. Willow Bark extract and Papaya Fruit extract increases cell turnover to help effectively detoxify the pores, and improve skin texture as it gently sweeps away dead skin cells and impurities that can dull the complexion.
To Use: Apply to face and body before going outdoors.
The packaging for this sunscreen is super luxurious, it even comes with it's own little stand! One of the only things I dislike more than unnecessary abbreviations is metallic packaging. Pretty - yes, but photogenic - no. I love that this has a little "on-off" switch so the pump doesn't accidentally depress during travel. I'm not sure how this will work as an essence, but it's really lightweight and leaves a moisturised finish. I don't love it on it's own because it makes my face feel a little greasy, but it works wonderfully under make up!

Tony Moly Mini Berry Lip Balm - $10.00
Flavoured lip balm protects lips with SPF15. Offers a pleasant flavour as well.
To Use: Apply throughout the day.
This cherry shaped and scented lip balm is ridiculously cute! It has a glossy peach coloured tint that looks super natural on the lips and doesn't taste too much like plastic. It's lightly hydrating and contains SPF15, I would definitely recommend this to Princesses that don't have super duper dry lips!

 Nature Republice Real Nature Mask in Cucumber - $3.89
The cucumber mask hydrates and provides skin with nutrients. It also increases skin absorption potential.
To Use: Apply 10-20 minutes to clean skin them remove. Massage remaining essence into skin.
This is a great choice of mask for summer because cucumber is always so cooling and refreshing!

 My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Mask- $3.89
The hyaluronic acid mask deeply moisturises. This mask infuses the skin to improve elasticity and firmness, and instantly enhances softness in the skin.
To Use: Apply 20-30 minutes to clean skin, then remove. Massage remaining essence into skin.
I'm not sure about using an intensely moisturising mask during hot weather, but I guess when you have dry skin it's usually dry! I'll be aiming to use this during Spring when my skin isn't too oily!

It's Skin Babyface Waterproof Eyeliner - $11.00
Define eyes and defy sweat and water with this waterproof liner. Product will last throughout the day.
To Use: Apply to top and/or bottom lash line by lining from inner corner outwards.
The packaging of this pencil liner is absolutely adorable! It is actually quite smudge proof and waterproof, but I wonder how it will hold up against my oily eyelids! This is a great liner for summer if you want your eye liner to stay on while swimming, just try not to rub your eyes!

Blotting Paper - $5.00
Soak up oil from skin without disturbing makeup or sunblock. Reduce shine and feel refreshed.
To Use: Dab face with one sheet as necessary throughout the day or evening.
Blotting papers are another great choice for a summer bag, they are definitely a necessity for my oily summer skin! The little Eiffel Tower charm is removable too, how cute!

What I Love
- Great choice of items in the bag
- Fun shaped products (cucumber & cherry tint)
- Fragile items were bubble wrapped!
- Quick 1 week shipping to NZ

What I Don't Love
- Nothing

Final Thoughts
I really like this Head to Toe Fun in the Sun bag! I think that it has a great range of sun care items, including a full size sunscreen, and that it also had some fun, cutely packaged items - who can resist a little cherry shaped lip tint! I really like that this time the delicate items came bubble wrapped for safety, it makes me feel so much safer when I see items being bubble wrapped.

Thank you so much to Beauteque for sending this bag to me for a review! If you're interested in a full review of any of these products, leave a comment down below and I'll make sure to review them for you! ^.^


  1. Spending a day at the beach or pool can really dehydrate the skin, not only from the water but the sun too. My family don't go swimming but I do have a 3 year old who is an outdoor kid, and after a sunny day outside my normal-oily skin feels dry and tired. So I can definitely see the reasoning behind the HA mask.

    1. That's a good point! I generally feel oilier/sweatier after a day in the sun which is why I felt that it was a little pointless. ^ ^
