I was recently tempted to subscribe to the Latest in Beauty subscription box because I could choose the products I’d receive, having become increasingly annoyed with receiving small samples from subscription boxes of things I am not interested in.
There are 3 subscription types on offer- 3 items for £9, 6 items for £15 and 9 items for £18. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money so opted for the cheapest box. The ordering experience was very easy, plenty of products on offer and you can cancel your subscription any time. This is my first month so I am not sure how good the selection is month to month but I definitely didn’t struggle to find 3 products I liked this time.
I was really impressed when I received my box! It was beautifully packaged in pink tissue paper, the box it arrived in isn’t a pretty one you can keep but that’s fine because I am swimming in Birchboxes anyway! They’d also included a free bag of Pop Chips and a teabag which I think is quite lovely for a £9 subscription. I also received a free 15ml sample of Origins Planscription anti-ageing power serum which I am very excited to try as it’s quite a pricy complex and I am just getting into incorporating serums into my daily skincare routine.
The three products I ordered were:
- Urban Beauty United Powder brush- unfortunately I really don’t like this brush. The bristles are really hard and makes my skin feel horrible after using it. It’s also much smaller than I expected.
- Laidbare Pack Your Bags Lighten and Tighten eye cream- this is a full size, 30ml product. I’m excited to start using it when I finish my current eye cream.
- Burt’s Bees Natural Lipstick in Sunset Cruise- this is a lovely summery shade and the formula is really moisturising and feels lovely on the lips. I have wanted to try these lipsticks for a while so couldn’t wait to grab it when I saw it in the lineup.
Overall I think this subscription is great! My box way exceeded in value than the £9 I paid for it and I was chuffed with the thoughtful extras they had included. You also get a free make up bag with your first subscription which is really handy and will definitely come in useful.
