The Latest In Beauty Natural Beauty Edit

 This post contains a gifted item.

Latest in Beauty create some of the best beauty boxes in the UK, and I have been a big fan for many years now. In the past couple of months, they changed things around a little, and you can now choose six products from a large selection for just £12.95 + £3.95 postage. You can cancel at any time, but when the products are so good, would you really want to? Not me!

The most recent edit was the Natural Beauty Edit* and the first of six products I chose is the Umberto Giannini Flowerology Rose Drops Miracle Mist (100ml - Full Size - RRP £8.95). This 97% natural Mist nourishes, hydrates, protects against UV and gives a natural hold, movement and shine. It helps to protect coloured hair and contains rose water, chamomile and sunflower seed extract to really nourish and hydrate the hair. Umberto Giannini is an amazing haircare brand and I have used them for years and so it is great to be able to choose one of their products in my box.

Next up I chose the NAF! Stuff Pink Grapefruit Light Hand Cream (50ml - Full Size - RRP £12.00). I first tried NAF! Stuff in my local beauty salon as I bought one of their cuticle oils and it is absolutely lovely, especially with the watermelon scent. Until the past year I never really used many hand creams as my hands never got dry, but since the extra hand washing and hand sanitising, I have been going through so many, and so I loved adding this to my box. It has a 100% vegan and cruelty free formula and is lightweight, meaning it dries into the skin almost instantly and leaves the hands feeling soft and smelling super invigorating with the pink grapefruit scent.

I love Aromatherapy Associates, they create some of the most relaxing, luxe products I have come across, but they aren't the cheapest and so I was thrilled to see the Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Mind Roller Ball (10ml - Full Size - RRP £22.00) as an option. This handy rollerball allows you to carry it anywhere you go, and it contains a 100% natural formula of a calming blend of ethically-sourced, sweet, woody Frankincense and clarity restoring Wild Moroccan Camomile. You simply apply a little to the inside of the wrists, or on the temples and sit back and relax - we all need a little bit of this lately.

Some of my favourite makeup brushes and sponges recently have been from the brand So Eco and so my next choice was the So Eco Angled Eyeliner Brush (Full Size - £5.00). This Eyeliner Brush is made from sustainable and biodegradable materials and has a lightweight wooden handle and a beautifully soft bristled brush. So Eco is a vegan and cruelty free brand and they don't use plastic packaging, and so I adore the ethos of the brand. As I have hooded eyelids, most liquid eyeliners don't always work well for me, so I like to use an eyeliner gel or even a black or brown eyeshadow and apply it to the lash line using a brush like this one, so this is a great addition to my brush collection.

One of the things I love most about beauty boxes is that you get to try brands you might not otherwise come across. I chose two lipsticks from Lulu Rose Cosmetics, a New Zealand brand that is made in Italy. The first shade I chose was Clio, a pretty, everyday warm nude and Andromeda, a candy pink. The lipsticks come in sleek gold packaging and the formula is super rich and creamy, with enough pigmentation for a one swipe swatch situation. They wear really well and I was super impressed with the formula. I couldn't find a UK price, but in New Zealand, they retail for $39.99 each and are both full sizes.

As a little treat, you also receive a mini Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance Lotion, which of course isn't classed as one of your choices, but a lovely little gift nonetheless. Individually these products would retail for way over £70.00, so this is definitely excellent value for money! You can find Latest in Beauty online here

All the Loves,
