Latest in Beauty Samples

                                                             Latest in Beauty Samples.
Over the Summer Latest in Beauty have had some fantastic samples for sale and I have bought quite a few bits and bobs from them too. If you haven't come across the Latest in Beauty website before it is well worth investigating. You can either buy a collection of samples in one of their great boxes, choose a mini beauty box of three sachet size samples, or simply pick and choose which ever deluxe sized samples you want. Latest in Beauty do require that you sign up and create a profile but this is all free and literally takes a few minutes. If you order a deluxe sample you can only buy it once so as to give others opportunity to try things.
I have quickly come to love Latest in Beauty, they have had some great collections see my post on Summer Nails here I have also bought some fantastic samples from them, allowing me to try much loved products at a fraction of the price.
I thought I would share with you some of the things I bought over the past few months. Most of these products I have been saving for the cooler months as I suspect that this is when I am going to get the most benefit from them. The cleansing balms in particular will (hopefully) give some much needed nourishment to my Winter skin.
Melvita Nectar Bright  Brightening Cream (15ml sample) and Nectar Bright Brightening Exfoliation Mask (15ml sample) I have really enjoyed all the Melvita products I have tried so far, and am keen to explore the brand further. Samples are a great way of trying a brand without spending an absolute fortune. These aren't available on the website any more, but I think I paid about £6 in total for both of these.
L'Occitane Creme Divine  (15ml sample) is still available when I looked on the website this morning. I paid £4 for this. Considering that a full size 50ml pot sells for £72 this was a complete bargain. It's almost a third of the full size product and I will be able to get a good feel for the product for a fraction of the price.
I am really excited about this one. It has comes with an awful lot of good reviews and I really want to know if it is a s good as everyone says. A 5ml sample of Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm. I paid £5 for this and again when I looked earlier today it is still available. A full size 50ml of this sells for £46. This may seem quite a lot to pay for a 5ml sample, but you only need a tiny amount of product, so this sample should last 10 days or so. Ok so it's not enough to get the long term benefits of a product, but it's enough to decide whether I like it enought to shell out £46.
Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm (15ml). I bought this for £6, and was so excited to be able to finally get my hands on this. A full size 100ml will set you back about £34. I am very sorry, but this sample didn't hang about for long on the website and is no longer available. Quite possibly one of the most raved about products in beauty blogs and I need to know if it lives up to the hype.
Have you tried anything from Latest in Beauty? What have been your favourite products?


  1. I haven't tried anything from them, but I LOVE the idea of getting a smaller pot of the really expensive stuff to test it out before committing to it! Nice recommendation! Xx

  2. We all love a bargain don't we? There is nothing worse than forking out a small fortune to find something just doesn't work for you.

  3. I definitely want to try out Latest In Beauty after reading this, what an amazing idea! Can't believe that L'Occitane cost you just £4, shame you can only buy one of each sample!
