Latest in Beauty

Edited: 17 June 2011 at 1:30pmBST

I was catching-up on my twitter stream this morning and noticed (I follow @glossyboxuk) they mentioned @alittlebirdcom is giving away a May glossybox on her blog!

Those who know about Glossybox already know the May box Soldout in no time.

I decided because I really want the May box and was unlucky to have missed the deadline to signup and order it, to enter A Little Bird's blog giveaway for the glossybox.


Whilst signing up to the blog I noticed she had a link to "The Latest In Beauty" so I clicked on it to be taken to the website and read about it and discovered this is a new UK beauty box service.

They way Latest in Beauty works is that the samples themselves are free, but each box has a £1 postage & packing fee. Your phone will be charged £1 for the text, and this is how they collect the postage and packing fee and each phone number can only get one code per month - you get 3 sample products, one from each of these categories: Skincare, Make Up & Fragrances and Hair & Body.

I completed the questionnaire eg. eye colour, natural hair colour, skintype etc. entered my email and postal details and then chose my three samples:

1. Green People Sun Lotion SPF15 with Tan Accelerator (Skincare)
2. Medara Decoface Moon Flower Tinting Fluid (Make Up & Fragrances)
3. Burt's Bees Therapeutic Bath Crystals (Hair & Body)

When your ready to check out just text the code on the page using your mobile phone so Latest in Beauty can receive the £1.00 postage and packing fee and voila a message appears saying your box will be with you in a few days. You can order samples from the website once every 30 days and if you like the samples they sell fullsize products on their website!

I'm now signed up to GlossyboxUK, Boudoir Prive and Latest in Beauty. I can't wait to sample all these box goodies. I'm definitely going to share with you box openings and first impressions once I receive each box and I'll let you know which products I like.

Latest In Beauty

Latest in Beauty's website is full of helpful information about products, they have a blog, a competitions section and lots more, please go take a look.

This is seriously good value!

I'm interested to know if you signup too and please let me know which products you chose and then once received what you think of the products after you've tried them.

Happy Friday!
