Latest in Beauty Little Beauty Box



Latest in Beauty is a company I've been hearing more and more about recently in the blogging world. Earlier this week, they were giving new members the chance to try one of their Little Beauty Boxes out for free (normally £1.50). You can purchase a Little Beauty Box every 30 days, and you have a choice of products in 3 different categories. Some are in vials, some sachets and some tubes, but for £1.50 you can't really go wrong, can you?

Something that sets Latest in Beauty apart from most of the other beauty boxes available is that they are a non-subscription company. They release themed boxes at least once per month through an email to their newsletter subscribers, and you are given the option of whether you would like to purchase this for £9.95 + £2.95 p&p. I will definitely be looking into getting these in future, as I feel getting out of subscriptions can be a bit of a fuss.


One sample I received in the box was the Yardley Peony Eau de Toilette. I've seen Yardley products around before but have never really looked into them. The full size 125ml bottle of this retails for around £15. I quite like the scent, it reminds me of L'Occitane's Pivoine Delicate. It smells incredibly similar considering it is half the price! I probably wouldn't pick up the full size of this as, although nice, I prefer fresh, fruity and sweet scents.


I also received 5 sachets of Lavera's Wild Rose Lipsome Intensive Night Cream. I don't have the driest of skin, but I do find myself drawn to intensive moisturisers as I can occasionally get dry patches that my regular moisturiser can't shift. When I cracked open the first sachet, I used slightly too much and realised that you can easily get two uses from each sachet. It is quite a rich formula, but I found it wasn't greasy and sank into the skin quite nicely. The only thing that would put me off buying the full size would be the scent, as I really don't like rose-scented products. The full size of this moisturiser retails for £15.90/30ml.

The last couple of samples I received in the Little Beauty Box were two 5ml sachets of Crabtree and Evelyn's Lily body lotion. This was the sample I didn't really think much of when choosing, but I am so glad I did! It sinks into the skin so well, leaving a subtle lily fragrance which lasts quite a while. When applying it has an incredibly velvety texture, much like a face primer. The full size retails for £16/245ml, and is something I'm looking to purchase in the future. My skin seemed to love it!

Have you received any boxes from Latest in Beauty? I'm gutted I missed out on their In-Flight kit but have asked to be placed on the reservation list in case any more come up!
