As I’m a bit obsessed with beauty boxes, I was really intrigued to try the Latest in Beauty service that allows you to build your own box. Their menu has a mixture of make up, skin care and hair products and there are a selection of full size and deluxe samples available. Prices range from £1 – £8 depending on size and brand so you can tailor your box to your budget.
I went for a mix of face, body and hair stuff:
Sanctuary Resurface and Refine Ultra Polish (£1)
Percy & Reed Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse (£2)
Dr Nick Lowe Sebum Control Cleanser (£3)
Murad Osmolyte Tonic (£3)
Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturising Cream (£3.50)
When my box first arrived the Jurlique product was missing and in its place was the Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation (not totally sure what that even is). However, the LIB customer service team were very helpful and sent me my missing product within in a few days which was good. I was a bit disappointed in the state of the original box when it arrived though! Not the fault of LIB, Yodel had squished it through the letter box, completely bursting it open. Luckily, none of the contents were damaged. I really, really, really wish companies would stop using Yodel, they are simply atrocious. I’ve had nothing but bad experiences with deliveries from them and I know a lot of other people have the same complaints.
Moving on, my box came to a grand total of £12.50 plus £3.95 for delivery (a bit pricey considering the service!). There’s no minimum order so you could spend less than this is you only wanted a couple of items.
Latest in Beauty also do collection boxes such as collaborations with Glamour or British Beauty Blogger so when I’m looking at theses, I’ll definitely be checking out what’s in their BYOB section too.
