I love a good beauty box and also love a good movie. So when a good movie meets a good beauty box well, let’s just say it’s even better. I’ve basically been waiting for Beauty and The Beast to come to cinemas for ages. I used to watch the original Disney animated version over and over again when I was younger and knew every SINGLE word by heart! Belle was just so pretty and elegant wasn’t she? So when I heard that Latest in Beauty was doing a beauty box collaboration with Beauty and the Beast I had to get my hands on it. What’s even cuter about this box is that there is a ‘Belle’ version for the ladies and a ‘Beast’ version for the guys. I of course have the ‘Belle’ version and actually putting all Beauty and the Beast amazingness aside, this is a pretty good beauty box on its own – packed with a multitude of goodies. So let’s unbox this fabulous Beauty and The Beast Box shall we?
First up there is the Burt’s Bees 100% natural lipstick in a gorgeous dusty rose colour of Blush Basin. Now I’ve actually spoken about these quite a bit in my blog before HERE and posted on Instagram about them as well so you have to know that I really truly do like these. They are moisturising and don’t dry the lips out so are perfect for everyday wear. Also being 100% natural with Moringa Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil and Vitamin E you know they will never do your lips any harm.
I love this beautiful, natural-inspired French nail brand and I have covered their nail polishes HERE previously. SOIGNÉ (meaning “to take care of”) specialise in ECO nail polishes so these are fabulous if you are looking for a natural nail product. They don’t have any toxic ingredients and have 85% plant-sourced raw materials. I also love this deep gorgeous red colour – totally Belle.
One can just never have too many mirrors! I’ve got one in every single handbag and you really do need one to use on the go for a touch-ups because the iPhone camera just doesn’t offer the same level of detail for that lipstick application. Trust me, I’ve tried. This is a pretty little gold compact mirror with a rose design on the outside so you can totally feel like Belle, even if just for a minute!
I recently discovered Gatineau (I am getting a very French vibe from this beauty box!) over Christmas and I really really like this brand. It’s no fuss, no nonsense and it just works. This Radiance Enhancing Gommage is an exfoliator (oh dear, I really need one for the state of my pores) and has a balm to oil consistency which I absolutely love. This is a truly dreamy product to use and feels amazing on the skin. This is a great product to add into your evening ritual after your first cleanse and make-up removal. It works on clearing away the dead skin, clearing pores and refining skin texture – all things I definitely need.
Oribe is a new discovery for me in this box – gasp! I of course have heard of this amazing hair brand but have never actually tried it. Apparently people have been waiting a long time for Oribe to launch a dry shampoo and I do love a dry shampoo – I use them religiously and I am picky about them as well. This one is nice as it doesn’t leave any white residue and I love the little travel-size version because I can stick it in my handbag.
I love Caudalie (have you tried their Beauty Elixir?) and this Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet is definitely worth a go for warmer temps. It’s a gel-cream formula so it sinks in nicely and also soothes and softens so is great for acne-prone skin. In other words, your summer skincare saviour. And if you are a green beauty gal then this is a great cream to try as it is 98% natural.
L’Occitane has also included a Hand & Nail Cream in the box – this one contains rose extracts from Grasse, Bulgaria, Morocco and Turkey, with a unique rose extract from Haute-Provence.
Now I just need to get out and see the movie!
