You may be aware that I am most probably the biggest Disney fan in the history of the world so when I heard that Latest in Beauty were creating a Beauty & The Beast Beauty Box I was so excited to see what was inside!
This stunning box comes beautifully packaged in an antique styled ‘Book’ to include some stunning imagery from the new motion picture.
Latest in Beauty created the perfect themed collection which included some stunning products keeping in with the Beauty & The Beast style.
So what was inside…?
Firstly, the Burts Bees Lipstick in Blush Basin.
I absolutely LOVE this colour. It is the perfect natural pink & is so flattering for my skin tone. Made from 100% naturally moisturising ingredients this products is super hydrating without compromising on a high pigmented colour. The ultra conditioning formula uses Moringa Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil & Vitamin E, to give a smooth, satin finish. The only down side is that I wish it was longer lasting but I love the nourishing feel so much it is a dream to re-apply! The packaging is cute – keeping in with the theme by creating a honeycomb cutout where the colour swatch of the lipstick can be seen. I’m really happy I came across this little beauty & it is definitely going to make a permanent home in my make up bag!
Gatineau Radiance Enhancing Gommage
This is a really lovely formula. A real thick & nourishing gel exfoliator with a luscious pearly orange texture. This product turns to liquid during massage to release its exfoliating ingredients, enzymes & AHAs which gently lift off impurities. My complexion instantly appeared brightened & my skin radiant.
Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
If you read my recent Oribe review you will know how I feel about this product! Oribe is one of my absolute FAVOURITE brands & this dry shampoo is incredible. Refer to my previous post – ‘Oribe: The Review’ for a full low down on this product. I was super excited to see that this was included. As it is quite a high end & expensive product I was amazed to find it in a beauty box that retails for just £20!
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet
I really love this cream. It is almost a gel like formula & is super light & moisturising without leaving skin oily or super shiney. I found it to hydrate, sooth & soften- leaving the perfect base before applying my make up. Made up of 98% natural ingredients – you can also be assured that there are no nasties in there to cause any irritation. Another winner!
L’occitane Roses et Reines Hand & Nail Cream
This beautiful moisturiser is what all Rose lovers dreams are made of! Enriched with shea butter & vitamin E, this light formula helps nourish, soften & protect the hands while helping to strengthen the nails. Since using false nails, I have found my nails have become weak & some what unhealthy – this cream is perfect for a little nail TLC! Unlike other creams, there is no greasy residue which I was really impressed with. I really dislike hand creams that leave you feeling greasy & sticky with the urge to run to the nearest sink to wash with cold water!
You are left with the delicate scent of Roses et Reines – floral & velvety without being too much of a ‘mature’ scent.
As stated on L’occitane’s website – ‘The Roses et Reines collection uses rose extract derived through enfleurage, a traditional process made innovative by the L’OCCITANE research team. The freshest of rose petals are steeped in oil, allowing it to become saturated with the natural fragrance of the rose, resulting in a fruitier scent’
SOIGNÉ Betteraves Rouges Nail Polish
I really like this product. Betteraves Rouges is a deliciously deep red colour, that quietly bespeaks sophistication & elegant glamour – again keeping in with the Beauty & The Beast colourways! SOIGNÉ products are made up of 85% plant-sourced raw materials – yet don’t compensate on pigment or wearable formula.
This red is fab all year round – but I find it looks especially flattering against a fresh tan in the summer!
I always wear a red on my toes on when i’m on holiday.
Latest In Beauty Gold Compact Mirror
A really cute compact mirror perfect for carrying in your handbag. Ideal for fixing your makeup on the go, it features normal & magnified mirrors on the inside & an elegant rose design on the outside. A lovely little gift!
I’m so pleased with these treats & am super happy I have found some Holy Grail products that I will become statement pieces in my make up bag.
