I am a huge lover of all things Disney. I think that most people would like their very own fairytale and Disney provides that little bit of magic that life is often missing. That reminder that anything is possible, if you put your mind to it. To dare to dream. This is something particularly important for women, I think, that in this day we can really do what we want to do. A dream doesn’t have to be a dream, but a goal. Anyway, one of my favourite Disney stories is Beauty and the Beast and being a beauty lover, this Beauty and the Beast beauty box is like heaven to me.
To be honest, there are loads of beauty boxes out there now but I have never seen one like this. I hadn’t heard of Latest in Beauty before this box came out with the release of the new movie and when I spoke to the lovely PR lady there, I just had to see it. I was delighted when it arrived.
One of the first things I noticed about this (apart from the packaging, I’ll come back to that in a bit) was that Latest in Beauty are pretty generous! You get seven products of all different types and I really do think there’s something for everyone: makeup, skincare, haircare, nail polish. I also love that there are his and hers boxes available, so there could be a great little something for the beast in your life too, beauties!
The products are all perfectly on brand for this particular box, I thought – this is my marketing side coming out – with the packaging all working well together. The products are perfect for the theme. Also, the brands involved in this box are brands that I would usually buy from and products that I would usually use, which is something I find to be quite rare with beauty boxes. The packaging was perfect for the Beauty and the Beast theme, with navy tissue paper and red rose petals, and the box itself looking like a book.
One of my favourite products included is the Burt’s Bees Lipstick (I got shade 501: Blush Basin) which is very moisturising and smells really good. It’s also 100% natural which I really like about it. I’m also a big fan of Caudalie and L’Occitane so I was pleased to see those in there. Another great thing is that you get discount codes for all the brands involved – I know I’ll definitely be utilising those!
