Latest In Beauty; Little Beauty Box

First of All I'd like to start off this post by saying 'Happy 1 Year Anniversary Wills & Kate!' Where has that time gone?! crazy

So back to LIB as you may know, I'm quite the fan. Their little beauty box is a right gooden as well, I haven't actually ordered one for a long time, as there hasn't been anything I've been desperate to try.
But the concept is, you pick 3 little samples (little samples usually consist of a couple of sachets or a small tube) So you pick 3 and then text  a special number, the text cost £1.50 which is all you pay for the samples and P+P (i think its a bargain) in return you will get a code sent to you, which you type in at the checkout, and that's it they will post your samples out pretty quick. 
I received mine yesterday, and here's what i ordered....

- Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint
- Elemental Herbology SkinCare Trial Kit
- Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy

The main reason for ordering this box was to try out the Liz Earle Skin Tint, and i was so pleased when i opened the box, there was 3 sachets, but not 3 sachets of the same colour, 3 sachets and each a different colour! I love that they have sent you a range! because then you can get a true idea of what the product is like, as you can actually find the right colour! i received a load of Garnier BB samples, and they only sent out light, but what if I'm medium? and another one i got samples of was the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, but its was far to dark. But anyway, i highly recommend ordering the Liz Earle! 
The other 2 were just because i couldn't decide what to order but, I'm looking forward to trying them, as I've not heard of/used either of the brands before.

Elemental Herbology, this contained 3 x 3ml sachets;
Cool & Clear facial Cleanser This contains Green Tea, Olive Extract & Lavender Flower
Facial Glow Radiance Effect Peel Containing Vitamin C, Papaya and Manuka Honey
Soothing Oil Free Facial Hydrator SPF 12 Containing Retinol, Biodynamic Algae and Pearl Extract
I'm really looking forward to trying this brand as all those products sound LUSH!

Skin Doctors, Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream, this i received 2 x 3ml sachets this product is meant to 'Dramatically Smooth the appearance of acne scarring, wrinkles and the visible signs of skin aging'
Although i never really had acne, i do have a couple of scars so I'll be interested to see if it has any effect on them, though I'm not sure if it will after 2 sachets.

If you're new to beauty boxes and aren't really sure where to start i would suggest the LIB Little beauty box, there isn't any surprises you get to choose exactly what you get, so its perfect for newbies, and its incredibly cheap at only £1.50.

Also, if you'd rather a bigger beauty box, today they released their 'CEW(UK) beauty awards 2012 box' costing £8.95 (excl P+P) which includes great brands like Nails Inc, Benefit & Liz Earle
These are limited edition so you need to snap it up quickly (if there's any left) 

This and the Little Beauty Box are available here.

Have you used the LIB little beauty box service before?

Lots of Love



  1. The elemental herbology sachets are fabulous! Definitely ones for my wishlist x

  2. I *LOVE* their little beauty boxes. I've been desperate for another one so I was really happy when I just checked about found that I can order another one. Waiting a whole month is too long!

    Hope you enjoy yours! :)
