Beauty boxes are all over the place now, and whilst most of the boxes on offer do have the appeal of the surprise factor with that comes the risk of disappointment. For each month you subscribe and pay roughly £10-15 for the experience you will always have the inevitable ‘you win some, you lose some’ element – you can’t always be delighted. But this is precisely why I am really loving the concept behind the Latest in Beauty box service!
Latest in Beauty at any one time have a selection of boxes available to purchase – each priced differently but roughly between £10 and £20, what is unique to them is that A) You don’t have to subscribe, you pay for each box as you like the look of it and B) The contents aren’t a gamble. You know what you’re paying for and so whilst no surprise element – there is the guaranteed satisfaction of knowing what you’re paying for is worth the money.
And on that front their newest box – the Ultimate Summer Nails kit is definitely a total winner. Just look at the contents! The contents are worth £55 but it’s priced at just £14.99 (+P&P) and I’m seriously so impressed – Butter London nail polish, Essie Nail Wraps, two mini polishes from Nails Inc (including one of my all time favourite top coats) a perfect handbag sized L’Occintane hand cream, a full size (and frankly awesome) Bourjois 1 Second Nail Polish Remover a Rituals Nail Polish Corrector Pen, a pretty nail file from The Vintage Cosmetics Company oh- and a voucher for a free manicure with any other service from Perfect 10 (in London only). Seriously, amazing contents – considering you would pay over £15 for the Butter London and Bourjois Remover alone…
Overall, I can’t rave about the contents of this box enough – there isn’t one thing in there I don’t love. In the average beauty box there’s always at least one ‘meh’ product of the bunch. But not this one, what it lacks in surprise factor it more than makes up for in amazing selection.
Keep an eye on Latest in Beauty – I think they have some exciting tricks up their sleeve!
