RELAUNCH | Latest In Beauty 'Build Your Own Beauty Box'*

I've posted before about Latest In Beauty's Build Your Own Beauty Box service, but they've recently had a re-launch, which you can read about on their site here. The gist of it, though, is that they're now adding a new product to their selection every single day - meaning there's always something new for you to to try! I was kindly invited to build my own beauty box*, so let's have a peek at what I chose...
Latest in Beauty Relaunch
I love The Hero Project's Hyasoft, so I was keen to try their Glow Drops; I received ten 3ml sachets of this, which means I should be able to give it a good go! I've been wanting to try Nip + Fab's Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads for ages, so I'll be giving these a whirl in the New Year; I think this little pot contains five pads, which isn't a huge number and I'd have liked a few more, but I'm not complaining.  I'm always up for trying new Amie products as well, so their New Leaf Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish found its way into my box; this sounds so lovely and is a really generous 25ml tube. A new brand to me, I also opted to try Jane Iredale's Smooth Affair Primer, which doesn't seem to be available via Latest in Beauty anymore, but I'm looking forward to trying it nonetheless.
Relaunch Latest in Beauty
Living Proof's Healthy Hair Shampoo also seems to have disappeared off the website, but this is an SLS-free shampoo (yay!) and the 60ml bottle I received retails for £11, so I was pretty chuffed to pop this one into my box. Balance Me's Congested Skin Serum sounds like it was made with me in mind - and the 7ml sample should last quite a while. I'm hoping it'll help with the clogged pores on my nose. Elemental Herbology's Facial Detox Purifying Mask also sounds perfect for my skin, which has been playing up lately; this claims to decongest pores and reduce excess sebum, so I'm excited to see how it works for my skin.
Another one that is no longer available, Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid is a bit of a cult favourite and one I've wanted to try for a while - I think this was the first product I added to my box! And finally, the MUA Luxe Paradise Palette features ten gorgeous high-shimmer shades which are perfect for party season... or for work. I've worn this pretty much every day since my box arrived and absolutely love the shade selection.

If you love the idea of building your own beauty box you can do so on Latest In Beauty's site here! You can build a one-off box from £9 for a 3-item box, £15 for six items or £18 for nine items - or you can choose a monthly subscription which is the same price, but includes free postage!
Latest in Beauty also have a range of pre-built Collections to choose from, which you can have a peek at here; these are a selection of themed boxes with prices starting from around £20, and would make the perfect gift for yourself or someone special!
Would you choose any of the same products as me for your own box? What would be your dream product to receive in a beauty box?

  1. I've been looking at that mua palette for some time. it looks awesome. Merry christmas x

  2. This looks like a great palette :) Merry Christmas and a happy 2017 to you!

  3. Such a fab idea! I've always been put off beauty boxes incase I get things I don't like but this sounds like the perfect solution

  4. I have just done my own box and I honestly debated over 5-6 items that I really wanted to try x

  5. OMG I got so much makeup and perfume I am sorted for the rest of 2017 and maybe into 2018 too lol coz I dont wear much of it! Great palette you got here!

  6. Oh the eyeshadow palette is beautiful. I used to have this but decided to cancel it as I had way too many beauty boxes x

  7. This is amazing! Would love to try this beauty box at some point :) x

  8. I used to love LIB and was excited about the new relaunch and ordered two boxes but I've had such shocking customer service which really saddens me and I'll no longer be using them ever again. Still.. I'm happy with my boxes so that's something. Love everything you chose xx

  9. I must give this a go! I love the sound of creating my own box and it's a great way to try new products xxx

  10. I used to love latest in beauty but then it was just like other beauty boxes so I stopped but now with build your own box I can give it a try

  11. I had a Glamour box which was amazing value for money. Incl postage ,a year subscription for the actual magazine incl the monthly freebies AND the box with an amazing diversity of things for I think 16 quid. That was really an amzing offer back then. Might repurchase it at some point but have put myself on a spending ban.
