Unbox with me: Latest in Beauty - Beauty Awards 2015

It must come as no surprise by now that I may be the biggest fan of Latest in Beauty boxes. I may be a little addicted to them but for good reason. They rarely disappoint. Now you are able to vote for your own beauty favourites and even win a box full of full sized products while you at it. Before we get to that LiB offers us a chance to test the products before voting. You are able to order a box choosing products you want from the list of candidates. You have three options: a box with either 3 (£8.99), 6(£12.99) or 9(£16.99) products that vary in price accordingly. I got myself the latter option and here’s what I picked up.

From the Best Newcomer category I picked up Zoella Beauty’s new Fresh Fizz Fragranced Bath Fizzer (full size) which is a bath bomb of a tropical scent. I’m happy to finally test Zoella’s bath range. From the same category I also picked up Skin & Tonic London’s Steam Clean (15ml) which promises to lift dirt and rejuvenate tired and dull looking skin. According to the website all Skin & Tonic products are organic, sustainable and hand crafted in London. I’m super excited to try this gem as part of my skincare routine.

From the Skincare Saviour I managed to grab Burt’s Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream (170g - full size), a rich, natural cleansing cream featuring Soap Bark, Chamomile and Aloe which removes dirt, excess oil and make-up. I will definitely give this one a go as part of my morning routine as it’s listing menthol as an ingredient which should in theory freshen and awake me in the morning. It’s a great size for a face cleansing cream and from good, well established brand. I also picked up a Gazelli Triple Youth® Ultimate Firming Serum (5ml sample). This luxury serum promises to tone and firm the skin, giving it a tighter, more youthful appearance,  and to protect the skin from free radicals and maybe even skin tone. Sodium Hyaluronate plumps the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. If there’s that one perfect serum waiting for me out there, this could be it. I love this luxury sample and hope to have found my holy grail. I guess time will tell and I will report back to you :)

I must admit to totally skipping the Must-have Makeup part as none of the offered products grabbed by attention. Sorry, but not sorry as there’s still some makeup coming up :)

In Hottest Haircare I grabbed a Popband. Mine is pink and cute and it’s silly that this is a first time I’ve tried it :) 

I got really excited again in Green Award and picked up two products here. I love finding new and more natural skincare so I’m very happy with these two. Firstly Dr Organic’s Organic Snail Gel Facial Serum (30ml) which combines Snail Gel with Olive Leaf Extract, Levan and Jujube Seed Extract to create a soothing non greasy serum that penetrates deep into the epidermis. It promises to instantly hydrate the skin to help leave it feeling smoother, nourished and restored, revealing a more youthful glow. I’m all about that glow ladies and nearly out of my current serum so I’m super pleased to try this. I currently use few products from Dr Organic and like them very much so I hope this will become my new favourite. To top it up I also managed to pick up Melvita L'Or Bio© Extraordinary Oil (sample 17ml) which is a 100% natural blend of five oils: Argan Oil sourced in Marocco, Pracaxi Oil from Amazonia, Inca Inchi Oil from Peruvian Andes, Buriti Oild from Brazilian Amazonia and Kendi Oild from Indonesia. It promises to nourish, beautify and protect the delicate skin or the hair. I have a really big love for oils in skincare and haircare and I will definitely be using this product soon. I love to mix my own oils as well as help myself with already made mixtures and this sounds divine. It also smells gloriously so I can’t wait to give it a go.

In Best Eye Makeup I again picked up two. Firstly Brush-on False Lashes 
(0.9g - Full size) from Magnifibres as I love the look of false lashes without having to actually wear falsies - I’m lazy this way, plus I really suck at it ;) I will be giving it a run for it’s money and expect great results as I already heard so much of this product. And to top it up I also chose Eye Of Horus Scarab Sapphire Goddess Pencil (Full size) This is a beautiful sapphire blue eye pencil and once you apply it it’s nearly impossible to get off. With blue being the colour of the summer of 2015 this fits in to IT category perfectly. Super pleased this was included. Watch out for my further review of the brand and more products coming soon in a separate review once I’m done testing it all out. 

I haven’t picked anything up in either Body Beautiful or Cult Classic as there were only 9 products I was able to order, but there are some great candidates in that categories too. 

This box has made me really happy and I’m super pleased with both my samples and full sized products. It’s great to be able to choose what you'd like to try as it gives you a full control on your spend.

Grab your box here while it’s still available and I will see you next time.

Thank you for reading.
