As things seem to have gone a little bit Glossybox Crazy in the beauty world, I thought that I’d take a look at some of the other ‘beauty subscriptions’ on offer. I have had a few suggestions, including Boudoir Prive and FeelUnique’s version, but I was instantly intrigued by the ‘Latest in Beauty’ service. They produce six ‘themed’ boxes a year, each priced at £4.95 (including P&P) and you can see what’s inside before you buy! Now, some of you might consider this a bit pointless because you sign up for the whole ‘surprise’ element, but others, especially those who have been disappointed with the contents of their beauty subscription boxes, will welcome the opportunity to pre-approve their samples. The current box, which features some of the winners of the Cosmetic Executive Women awards, has quite a nice array of different brands. There’s nothing particularly ‘luxe’ or unusual, but every sample (save for the Nivea for Men Gel!) is of a product that I already use, so it’s great for travelling.
What are your thoughts on being able to see what you’re getting before you order?
