Latest in Beauty | Build Your Own Box

Glossybox, Birchbox, Pink Parcel, You Beauty Discovery, Cohorted, Look Fantastic... the sheer number and variety of beauty boxes available has never been more confusing. In my experience, monthly beauty subscription services tend to be very hit or miss, nevertheless, they are still an affordable way to experience a whole range of innovative brands, new releases and cult classic beauty products in one convenient little package delivered straight to your door. One way to avoid the inevitable disappointment of opening your box to find a number of underwhelming or unsuitable products is by using the Build Your Own Box service from Latest in Beauty

LIB gives you the opportunity to create your very own custom beauty box by choosing your favourite products from their selection of top brands, many of which are full sized! There are three box options available depending on your budget: Box 1 (3 products for £8.99), Box 2 (6 products at £12.99) and Box 3 (9 products for £16.99).

August's Degustabox | The Surprise Food Subscription (£7 Off Promo Code)

Can you believe it's almost September already? This Summer has been a bit of a letdown weather wise. I'm sick of drizzly days and hot humid sticky nights, and excited for Autumn colours, cinnamon candles, berry lipsticks and cosy jumpers. Anyway, my August Degustabox has just arrived and its packed full of delicious goodies and new brands that I'm sure you can't wait to find out more about. 

August's Degustabox | The Surprise Food Subscription (£7 Off Promo Code)

Degustabox* is a monthly food box that is delivered straight to your door and contains a selection of innovative food products, discount codes, recipe cards and other fun stuff for only £12.99 including delivery. You can subscribe at any time and I even have a £7 off discount code for first-time subscribers at the end of this post - that's only £5.99 for your first box! July's box contained products from Rowntrees, Rejuvenation Water, Jordans and Seabrooks, which you can read more about here. Let's take a look at this month's box...


First up is a box of Lime & Ginger Green Tea from Clipper (£1.59). The fairtrade tea is light, refreshing and slightly more flavoursome than regular green tea thanks to the twist of citrus. It makes a nice change from my usual morning cuppa and smells incredibly uplifting. Also inside was a bottle of Fentimans Sparkling Lime & Jasmine carbonated soft drink. Fentimans is a brand known for its traditional values and natural botanically brewed beverages. This blend of Hyssop, Lime Flower and Juniper Berries is the perfect balance between bitter and sweet.

Feel Unique Pick 'n' Mix | Beauty Samples Delivered Straight to Your Door

As a serial beauty box subscriber and all round makeup and skincare hoarder, it's no surprise that I'm a huge fan of Feel Unique's new sample service. As a frequent Feel Unique shopper, I was surprised to find out about the Pick 'n' Mix service not from a promotional ad or email, but from one of my favourite beauty blogs: hannahheartss.co.uk. In fact, even after I had read about it, I still struggled to find the link online. This could be Feel Unique's best-kept secret. 

Feel Unique Pick 'n' Mix | Beauty Samples Delivered Straight to Your Door

Each month Feel Unique customers can select 5 samples from brands such as Benefit, Caudalie, Lancome and Nuxe. Samples range from one-use face mask sachets, tiny perfume vials and micellar water pouches. The service is 'free', but you do have to pay a £3.95 handling and shipping fee, however, you receive a gift voucher which you can redeem on a future purchase for the full amount. You are also limited to one Pick 'n' Mix sample selection per person, per month.

Kokoso Baby | Natural & Organic Coconut Oil for Baby-Soft Babies + Giveaway

Penelope is now 5 weeks old; I can't believe how quickly time is passing! Bath time with a newborn can be a bit of a military operation. There's so much to take into consideration. Is the water too hot/cold? Have I put enough water in? Is she ever going to stop crying? Has she just peed in the bath? And are the products I'm using gentle enough for her sensitive skin? 

Kokoso Baby | Natural & Organic Coconut Oil for Baby-Soft Babies + Giveaway

Like most babies, Penny has a touch of baby acne as well as a dry scalp and lots of folds and creases that are a bit tender so choosing bath and skin care products gentle enough for her sensitive skin was an absolute must. Kokoso Baby* was created by a mum who had a similar experience with her little girl. She was worried about the effects of introducing unnecessary chemicals to her daughters already dry, delicate skin and made it her mission to find the perfect 100% natural and organic solution. She discovered a high quality, organic raw coconut oil from a family-run farm in Thailand with amazing natural nutrients and created Kokoso Baby, a skincare product pure enough for both mum and baby.
