Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well!
Sorry, it’s been a while since we’ve spoken! I’ve been away visiting family, and although I did bring my laptop, I ended up being too busy visiting people and doing things to actually sit down and get anything done.
Anyway, so here I am, bringing to you on this fine Monday evening, a post about a new beauty box I’ve recently discovered by Latest in Beauty.
So, they do a shit tonne of great collaboration boxes, like the Cosmopolitan Holiday Edit, Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Box, and seasonal ones like The Spring Edit. They are crammed with truly good products. I know that with some beauty boxes, you can sometimes end up with a lot of ‘meh’ items, cheaper brands which make you feel like you’re not really getting your money’s worth.
After doing some extensive investigating (going on their website) I found that their boxes are crammed full of goodies, and also, they offer a ‘Personalise’ option, where you can choose 9 products (out of literally hundreds) for your box for £25. That’s the One Off option, but you can do a subscription for £18 too.
I was very lucky to have two samples thrown in too, which were the DHC A-Arbutin White Mask and the Nanoblur, a kind of moisturizer that’s meant to blur imperfections, so I’ll definitely give both of those a go.
On the website, you do a little beauty quiz type thing before where you put in what your skin/hair complaints are, what your skin and hair types are, what your eye and hair colours are, etc etc, so that they can best tailor the product choices for you – but even after that there’s still so many to choose from! Makeup, nail varnish, shampoo and conditioner, face masks, eye serums, fake tan. You name it, they’ve got it.
There’s only one product in there that I’ve tried before, and that’s the St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mist because I absolutely bloody love it and couldn’t resist it.
Everything else is all brand new to me, so I’m looking forward to trying them out.
I picked up the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist which is basically a hydrating mist for your face that has amazing reviews. The Philosophy Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser was the next item; again, rave reviews and I’m always on the hunt for new cleansers as I cake the makeup on.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo is something I’ve wanted to try for yonks, so I got that also; it’s an anti blemish cream that is meant to work wonders. Then I got the Paul Mitchell Forever Blondes Dramatic Repair which is a serum type product that’s meant to be amazing at repairing damaged locks, which I definitely need. Still on the hair-train, I got the Moroccan Oil Treatment. I love the Moroccan Oil Hair Mask, so I was really keen to try this too.
I love Oskia items, so I got the Oskia Renaissance Mask – it has really good reviews, and I love a face mask. Not cheap for the full size pot, but if it works, it’s worth it!
Also in my box, was the Heaven Chamomile Desensitising Hydrogel. I’d never heard of Heaven Skincare before, and again, I always want something to get rid of those blemishes, so in it went. Lastly, and the only makeup item I chose surprisingly, was the Kevyn Aucoin The Matte Bronzing Veil in Desert Days. It’s a lovely bronzer shade and looks like it’ll give a really lovely glow, so I’m excited!
As you can see, some items are smaller/sample size, and some are full sized. I don’t mind though, for £25 I’m happy to get a few uses out of some items and find some holy grail products I’ll love for life.
Anyway, I hope you liked this blog post and if you want to build your own box, the website is https://www.latestinbeauty.com/.
All my love BGP xx
