Latest In Beauty | Beauty And The Beast Boxes


If there is one thing I know about little girls, it is that we all spent one time in our lives wanting to be a Disney Princess. Whilst most girls nowadays dream of being Anna or Elsa, girls my age all wanted to be Belle.

I am so looking forward to the live action remake of Beauty And The Beast, especially after falling in love with the Cinderella remake a few years ago. I am excited by anything Disney Princess themed anyway, so imagine my reaction when Latest In Beauty invited me to try their Beauty And The Beast themed box! 

In case you don't know, Latest In Beauty are a monthly subscription box that allows you to pick and choose the beauty products you receive each month. However their Beauty And The Beast Box is slightly different. They have curated two limited boxes, one for the beauties and one for the beasts! Obviously I received the Beauty Box, but I'm really glad they have included the guys in this because they often get left out. 

Latest In Beauty teamed up with a number of french brands for this box which is a nice touch as the film is set in France. The products inside include:

BURT'S BEES LIPSTICK
L'OCCITANE ROSES ET REINES HAND & NAIL CREAM
SOIGNÉ BETTERAVES ROUGES NAIL POLISH
LATEST IN BEAUTY GOLD COMPACT MIRROR
GATINEAU RADIANCE ENHANCING GOMMAGE
ORIBE GOLD LUST DRY SHAMPOO
CAUDALIE VINOSOURCE MOISTURIZING SORBET







My favourites so far are definitely the Soigne nail polish and the Burt's Bees lipstick. I got the shade Blush Basin which is the perfect nude shade for me which is great as I've been looking for a new one to wear when I'm at work or don't feel like wearing a really bold lip. Due to my job I haven't worn nail polish for nearly 6 months now but this one has tempted to me to wear it on my days off! I also really like the L'occitane hand and nail cream as my hands get dry really easily. It's small size means it's perfect to fit in my bag or even just my coat pocket and take everywhere! I am yet to try the other products but I know the Oribe dry shampoo won't last long in my house!

Now you may think this is the end of the blog post, but the treats from Latest In Beauty didn't end there! A couple of days after the initial email about the box, I received an invitation to their Beauty And The Beast themed event in London. The invitation arrived in the post with a wax envelope seal (well done to Emma for that!) I was beginning to feel like a princess already.



I hopped on my carriage (also known as the Gatwick Express) with my blogging bestie Georgia and we made our way to the Lanesborough Hotel. We met fellow blogger, Izzy, at Hyde Park and crossed the road to the hotel. It took us a few minutes to actually pluck up the courage to go inside. We spent a moment looking at how grand it was with the posh cars outside, much too fancy for two Lancing girls! We eventually made our way to the entrance where we were met by two doormen. We expected them to ask us why we were there but instead they opened the doors for us and said "Good afternoon ladies, enjoy your stay." WOW. That was one of the highlights of my night.



I don't think we were quite prepared for what the inside of the hotel looked like, the room the event was being held in was especially beautiful, I really felt like I was in a real castle. We were greeted by the lovely ladies from Latest In Beauty who made us feel so welcome! I soon spotted something at the other end of the room...the infinity rose!





It was even more beautiful in real life and I want one in my house. There was a rumour that it was the one used in the film, but I'll let you decide if you think that's true or not! This wasn't the only attraction. There were hand massages and manicures being offered and a man playing the piano (very classy) as well as champagne and yummy canopies being offered all evening.

If the evening wasn't great enough already, we soon met up with 3 more blogging girls - Sara, Alicia and Mel. Georgia and I had met them before at the Blogosphere Christmas event so it was great to catch up with them! We chatted and giggled all evening, it's great to have a group of friends who all blog because we all understand each other and the issues that non blogging friends may not understand!




I just want to thank Latest In Beauty for inviting me to such a wonderful event and giving me one of their limited edition Beauty And The Beast Boxes. If you would like one then you can click HERE.


Beauty And The Beast comes out on the 17th of March. Are you looking forward to the release?

See you soon,
