So I wanted to tell you all about Latest In Beauty, which is a kind of 'Try before you buy' site specializing in beauty products, and in particular their latest beauty box!
Now the great thing about this beauty box is that it is NOT a monthly subscription. You get to see what is in the box on the website and then decide to buy it or what depending on if you fancy what's inside. And the box is perfectly sized to fit through the letterbox! (No more trawling to the post office to pick up your beauty box!) The only bad thing is that they only release a new box every couple of months or so - so you have to wait a while for your next fix!
On to the box itself...... this is the latest offering and it is called 'The Refresh and Recover' box (who doesn't need one of these in January right?!) Some of the things in it are a little random, but hey lets give it a go anyway! This box costs £6.95 and for this you get 6 standard items and get to pick the other 2, that's a massive 8 items in total (and for some reason I got an extra item in my box - woop!)
Now for the Randomness!!!!!!!! Not the usual things you would expect to find in a beauty box but kinda makes it cool!
- ActiMint - Mints which have 'Friendly Bacteria' to help aid good digestive health. The idea of consuming bacteria (friendly or not) kinda freaks me out a little ... however I will definatley be packing these in my work handbag so I can have minty fresh breath during my 11 hour flight!
- Teapigs Peppermint Teabag - Kinda a pyramid teabag with 'real' tealeaves inside. Unfortunately I don't drink tea or coffee so will be passing on this one.
- Cosmetofruit Body Boost - This thing actually confused the heck out of me... but I eventually figured it out .... you put 4ml a day into the little white space ship thing it comes with and drink it.... Yes DRINK it!! (It is Cranberry and Wild Murta flavour) Wierd hey!? The idea is it repairs from the inside and drains fluid and lipids preventing cellulite. Whilst just the thought of this makes me wanna gag I am definatley going to give it a go.... this sample should last 7 days so am going to combine it with a few good gym sessions.
Ooo I almost forgot to add some money off codes came with this box if anyone is interested....
