The Refresh and Recover Box - Latest in Beauty

I got the Refresh and Recover Box from Latest in Beauty the other day.  Great value for £6.95 including postage.  You get to choose 2 luxury samples to add to your box.


Here's what I got:

Lavera Handcream 20ml, MONU Recovery Balm 5ml, Figs & Rouge Sweet Geranium Balm 8ml, Cosmetofruit Total Body Booster 30ml (doesn't taste great but I'm using it) for luxurious hair & nails, Teapigs Tummy Tonic Peppermint leaves Tea sample (love this already), Actimint probiotic supplement taster size (3) and Sunshots SPF 25 20ml.

I chose Balance Me Rose Otto and Shea Butter Salve 15ml which retails at £8 and Balance Me Rose Otto Body Wash 55ml which retails at £3.50.  


20% discount off a full size MONU Recovery Balm - RECOVERYLIB on http://www.monushop.co.uk/ valid until 29 February.


Use BEAUTY12 to get 20% off Matcha Tea at http://www.teapigs.co.uk/ valid until 31 January.

A bargain box I thought, did anyone else buy it and what are your thoughts.

  5. What a great way to try out some high-end products before buying them for full price. Do you receive these every month? Love the idea.

  6. @Hannah, its a great idea esp being able to have your choice of the extra 2 samples x

    @English-Exile, its a great price! x

    @Cami, I'll check out your blog and thanks so much for following :) x

    @Julia, I think they do six of these type of boxes a year, you can also do the monthly box which is sachets over three ranges for £1 which you pay by mobile phone and you can also buy luxury samples x

    @Been There, Done That, Got The Lipstick, agree and I will use everything! x

    1. We have 3 right now. Luxe Box started last May I believe, Glymm started in July and Topbox in October. These 3 are totally competing and fighting it out!

    3. Makeup, skincare, hair, or fragrance products. Very similar type things to the boxes you get. Today was actually a big deal because Glossybox is now in Canada! I feel like I'm indulging a little subscribing to 4 sample boxes!!

  9. I got this box and really liked it too, especially with the freebies I got, one of them was a L'Oreal eyeshadow quad, so I was really happy. x
