CEW Beauty Insiders Choice Winners Box (and a little NARS incentive)

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 9 - 2011

If you’ve been umm-ing and ahh-ing over the influx of ‘beauty boxes’ to the market, I’m just about to make your life a little more complicated.

Latest in Beauty were the beauty box scene pioneers.  Back in 2008, I agonised over choosing my first three samples, paid my £1 (taken off my mobile phone bill) and waited with bated breath for my beauty box to pop through the letter box.  A few days later, it did and has over the years introduced me to some great brands like Ginvera, Blinc and Lavera, not to mention cultivating my addiction to Elemis.

The company went through what I’d describe as a ‘wilderness’ period a couple of years ago (a 1ml sachet of sun protection – what’s that gonna protect, my little finger?) but relaunched with a new website, adding more strings to their bow ever since.  Most recently, they’ve introduced the Beauty Insiders Choice Winners Box, where for £4.95 – you will receive 6 products worth in the region of £20 that share the common theme of picking up a trophy at this year’s prestigious Cosmetic Executive Woman awards.

Contained within the Beauty Insiders Choice Winners Box are the following products:

Dr. Organic Rose Otto Skin Lotion (5ml sachet), Clarins Multi-Active Day Early-Wrinkle Correction Cream (15ml tube), Batiste Dry Shampoo (50ml can), Balance Me Rose Otto Body Wash (55ml Bottle), Nivea for Men Q10 Revitalising Gel (15ml tube) and Lanolips 101 Lip Ointment (1g Sachet).

The Clarins is clearly the shining star of the set when it comes to value, 50ml of product usually retails at £38, making a 15ml tube more than cover the outlay for the £4.95 box.  The transparency is refreshing for people who like to know exactly what their money will be buying them, I’m a bit torn – I lurve nothing more than a wonderful surprise but I am also a horrific control freak.  Just ask Mr. L.

This is the first of the new themed boxes produced by Latest in Beauty, so if this one doesn’t grab at your wallet, be sure to check back soon for more.

.

As a little sweetener to tempt you into trying, Latest in Beauty have put together a rather delicious prize in the shape of a NARS-A-PALOOZA!

    Lol @NARS-a-palooza.

    I’m always a bit wary about these boxes, there was one that did the rounds earlier this year where one of the products inside was tea. I wouldn’t really be too impressed if I’d been sent tea. But I think therein lies the problem, you can’t please all of the people all of the time and there’s always going to be someone who has a gripe with what is in the box. I think the one where they let you choose was better.

  5. I have been getting the monthly latest in beauty boxes for quite a while too, I wish that they would update the monthly products a bit more though! I noticed the CEW winners box when I was ordering my latest monthy box from them and was unsure as to whether I wanted to get it or not, This post has definitely made me want to get it. I’d have to give the nivea for men to my boyfriend or Dad! :’)

    • The comp only went live today…sooo, ‘fraid not – sorry. It’s like that time I bought a perfume on SpaceNK only for it to half in price in the sale 2 weeks later. Sorry. Here, have a virtual biscuit instead. It’s *nearly* as good as the NARS. Honest. x
