My lovely friends at Latest in Beauty celebrated a huge milestone recently – it was their 10th anniversary and to celebrate they launched their very special ICONS limited edition box. Like so many of their special and themed boxes, the ICONS edition is jam-packed full of amazing goodies from some of the best brands in the business. It’s boxes like this that mean I rate LIB as one of, if not THE best beauty box provider that I’ve tried. And the ICONS edition did not disappoint.
The theory behind this box and it’s contents is that each item has been hand-picked by the expert team at Latest In Beauty. They’ve carefully chosen each item based on it’s cult status and iconic fan-base. So everything inside is guaranteed to deliver. To me, what makes the Latest In Beauty boxes special is their value – unlike so many boxes that claim to have the best goodies inside, LIB boxes really do. The ICONS box, for example, costs only £50 but the value of products inside is £238 – which I’m sure you’ll agree is MASSIVE! And it’s why I think it’s a great beauty investment. And I for one love the selection inside – it’s got some of my trusty favourites as well as new goodies to try out – so the best of both worlds for me.
My favourite (although it was so hard to pick!) has to be the Starskin goodies – I love their masks and inside the ICONS box you get The Master Cleanser Face Mask as well as the two pack of DreamKiss Plumping & Hydrating Lip Masks. Both are full size so you’ve got a whole pamper session between these two products alone. And a girl can never have too many masks, right?
Then you’ve also got numerous other full-sized products. Including the Masqd Blusher Brush which comes in it’s own magnetic box and has a really nice texture. (I don’t think beauty boxes can go wrong when they add brushes inside because you’ll always use them.) Then there’s also the OPI Got Myself Into a Jam-balaya nail polish which is the prettiest coral tone pink which is such a versatile shade so everyone can enjoy it. You also get the Intense Kajal Eyeliner from BlinkBorwBar – another make up staple that everyone will use, and the Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray which is designed to create full volume and texture in the hair and allowing the perfect beach waves. (I’m excited to try this one!) And finally, the Rodial XXL Lip Liner in Nude is also full-size too. And another product you’re going to find a handbag essential.
After these goodies the rest are travel sizes – but still very generous sizes. For example my favourite Smashbox Primer, the Original Photo Finish is a 12ml size, which is larger than the regular travel size you can buy in-store. And the Philip Kingsley Coconut Breeze Elasticizer is a 75ml tube too – so a very generous amount. If you’ve not tried this before, this pre-shampoo treatment is one of my favourites because it’s good for all hair types, so I’m chuffed to bits that I’ve got a good travel size to take away with me now. Another great Travel Sized product within is the Eve Lom Cleanser & Muslin Cloth. The pot is a 20ml size and perfect for taking away when you go on holiday or for a night away and you don’t want to haul your full-sized tub.
There’s also a lovely 30ml Omorovicza Illuminating Moisturiser too which I started using immediately, and girls – you need this. My skin has such a subtle glow when I use this underneath my make up. I am 100% purchasing the full size after this! You also get the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Peels (a 6 piece set) which coincidentally I tried for the first time when I received some in the Latest In Beauty x Grazia Box a few months ago and I recommend trying them out if you have sensitive skin or are new to acid-based peels. And finally, you get a sample size of Paula’s Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment which is great for it’s anti-ageing properties.
So as you’ll see, the products inside surpass expectations for a beauty box don’t they, and I wouldn’t expect anything less from Latest In Beauty. This box marks their 10th anniversary perfect and at only £50 for nearly £240 worth of goodies, it’s a great way of allowing us to join in with their celebrations. Pick up the Latest In Beauty ICONS Box for yourself.
