Hotly anticipated and much coveted the amazing Beauty And The Beast beauty box from Latest In Beauty is here! When I received my delivery I couldn’t wait to see what was inside as the buzz on social media had whipped us all into a frenzy. With such a perfect collaboration between Disney and the Latest In Beauty team it could only mean one thing – a duo of fantastic boxes which as they are limited edition won’t be around for long. With their collaboration two boxes were created one for the ‘Belles‘ and one for the ‘Beasts‘ and both make equally great gifts (or gift to self!) and are really great prices too at £20.00 each. When I heard of the collaboration I did expect a higher price so I was really pleasantly surprised to see both at such an affordable price. Even the boxes that all the goodies come in are gorgeous and collectable (see photo’s below) and with the launch of the epic movie released on the 17th (tomorrow in the UK) March what better way to get in the mood than to treat yourself to a ‘Belle’ box.

It’s safe to say that in my quest to find the ‘perfect’ perfume I have amassed a huge array of bottles. Some I love and use regularly but others (usually an impulse buy) sit unused for months.  Would I have bought them if I could have had a months supply instead to really test them out? Well, probably not. Secret Scent Box I feel have identified this need and for £15.00 per month you can subscribe and receive three new scents to sample and the beauty is each will last a month to really get a feel if it is right to go ahead and buy the full sized perfume. You can either subscribe to a female or male trio of scents to be delivered each month and unlike so many beauty boxes this is letterbox friendly and will fit through easily – so no waiting in for parcels!

From Payot is an ideal gift set for anyone looking for an anti-ageing duo to work with your skin to combat the signs of ageing on the skin. The Supreme Jeunesse Set is a serum and cream duo which work in harmony with each other to give results and not only do they treat the first signs of ageing but also the visible signs of ageing skin as well as dehydration and loss of elasticity. It’s something I am only to aware of as over the last five years my skin has really changed (the dreaded over 40’s!) and needs extra help to support, hydrate and heal the skin.

Every Christmas I have a long standing tradition that I will discover one or two new aftershave fragrances for my OH and this year I have found two beautiful and very naturally scented colognes courtesy of L’Occitane Provence L’Homme Cedrat and this gem from Crabtree & Evelyn. I just love the Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy collections and find they are a great gift idea for any mum, a real treat – and with some great mini collections you can have one in your handbag, one at work, one in the car and one next to the sink to keep your hands soft and smooth.  If you are already a convert to their hand-creams you will know what I mean by saying they are the dry skin saviours over Winter as they create such a great hydrators, well worth a try if you are suffering this December.
