The BoXession team have had the wonderful privilege of an ongoing collaboration with Latest In Beauty and this is my third LiB box of the year!

Discover a curated selection of the best beauty treats, with new skincare; make up, body or hair products going live every day! A big thank you to Dean for sending this box for review.

What did I get?

Wow this box is worth an amazing £84.56! That’s more than 5 times the cost of this box!

What did I think?

Sport FX Body Build Dry Shampoo

Just a quick spray will transform your hair into a clean, revitalised style that’s full of body and bounce. It instantly absorbs excess oil without leaving the hair feeling dry or damaged and without leaving visible white marks! Great for those days in between washes and smells really lovely too.

Monpure Clarifying Scalp Scrub

As this edit focuses on hair care this month, I thought I’d try a brand and product that was completely new to me. This intensely refreshing scrub helps cleanse and remove product build-up, banish impurities, refresh the scalp and leave hair feeling ultra-cleansed, without stripping away essential moisture or being excessively abrasive. This scrub is superb! I like the fact it exfoliates the scalp and removes dead skin; it leaves hair feeling squeaky clean and weightless.

Monpure Nourish and Stimulate Scalp Mask

I use hair masks quite regularly, but never a scalp mask so I thought I’d give this a try. It has a lovely peppermint scent that is very fresh and uplifting. On application you start to feel a cooling and tingling sensation which feels pleasant. Once my hair was washed and dried I noticed that my scalp felt invigorated and not as dry as it usually feels after washing!

XO Balm

I really like how versatile this balm is! With the colder weather slowly creeping in I find that my hands, hair and lips suffer the most with dryness. I’ve been using this balm over the past few days and I love how it keeps my skin beautifully soft and nourished. It’s great for popping into your bag and using when necessary, and it has a handy mirror in the lid which is also useful!

Skin Academy Zero Day Cream

This is another new brand for me. I mainly choose it for the pretty sustainable packaging and the clean ingredients plus you can never have too many moisturisers in my opinion! I really like this cream; upon application it absorbs nicely into the skin without being tacky or greasy which is a good thing for my combination skin. It did a great job of keeping my face hydrated and soft.

Oh K! Coffee Mask

Oh K! is a brand I’ve used before and is one I really like – their bubble mask is one of my favourite masks to use. After using this particular mask my skin felt and looked visibly fresh and hydrated. It leaves skin feeing tighter and rejuvenated and there was a definite glow to my skin too! I can always count on the Oh K masks to work their magic!

Frank Body Coconut Coffee Scrub

I must say, I love when Latest in Beauty add in these little extra treats, and being a coffee scrub fan, this little treat has been perfectly chosen for me! It smells absolutely divine and really feels great on my skin. The coffee grains are big enough to provide you with a little massage, without scratching or aggravating the skin like some scrubs can, but still does the job of getting rid of dead skin cells and leaves my skin super soft and smooth.


My third LIB box of 2020 and I’m really pleased with everything I have received. Near enough all the products are full sized and for a bargain price! The products selection varies from beauty, skin care, make up, lifestyle and tools, so you’re guaranteed to find something you like. You are able to upgrade or downgrade your monthly subscription to suit your needs. So, what’s not to love about this box?! I have brought previous boxes and I will buy many future boxes! Their collection boxes are also one to keep your eyes on as they collaborate with well-known companies to bring you the best boxes on the market for competitive prices.
