Beauty boxes and Beauty Subscriptions are very popular as we all know, but the novelty can soon wear off which is why if I ever focus a Beauty Box here on the blog, then you know it is one worth knowing about. Trust me. I am very picky these days when it comes to accepting 'beauty boxes' as my blog would be overloaded with them if I did, hence I only ever showcase those that really excite me and those that I would happily pay for myself, like Mintd Box for instance, review here. This brings me to another concept that I thought was really unique and worth discussing here on the blog.
Let me introduce you to Latest in Beauty and The Perfume Society. If you love scents, then here lies a brand whose website features everything you ever wanted to know about fragrance including the art of perfumery, the chance to meet the creators, being the first to know about new launches, the chance to purchase discovery boxes and join a perfume community where you can get together with other perfume lovers. They really are more than just a domain name. They even feature a subscription that invites you to events such as 'meet the noses', attend courses and download their magazine, The Scented Letter (don't you just love that name).
The Perfume Society got in touch to see if I would like to try their Scented Skincare Collection, this being a perfect collaboration between the two of us. I was instantly intrigued to what contents it contained and after a read up about the company itself, it really excited me.
The Scented Skincare Collection is actually a first ever Collaboration with Latest in Beauty, a company who specialise in sharing and working with the latest beauty brands. The difference with them compared to other beauty boxes and subscription services is that you can build your own beauty boxes so you shall never be disappointed with the contents! You can simply buy one off boxes or subscribe monthly, the choice is yours. I think they are fantastic personally as they stock some of my all time favourite beauty brands and the choice of products are endless! Both companies have come together to join skincare with fragrance in the form of 10 new amazing skincare products that shall leave your skin not only looking great but scented too - including one full sized item, all valued at over £75 ALL for just £20! I know right? That is exactly why I got excited. We all know that when we love the scent of our skincare, we use it a lot and by using it, we see results. The fragrance of a moisturiser, body lotion or balm etc really does determine how we use it, hence why The Perfume Society have recognised this and bought us an answer.

Sukin Detoxifying Clay Masque, 100ml, FULL size (worth £11.49)
A 'paraben and full on nasties free' super greens detox clay mask containing Kale, Spirulina and Parsley to give a clean, healthy glow (just like a green smoothie!). I have seen this brand many a time but have never used it so I was super excited to try and being my first ever Sukin product, I really was impressed. It smells like fresh Marzipan and being the massive almond/marzipan fan that I am, makes this my dream. This does really show (as SUKIN state) that good skincare doesn't have to cost the earth as this does definitely does just as it states.
Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Cream, 40ml
Aromatherapy Associates are one of my all time favourite brands and in my opinion one of the best Aromatherapy brands there are. The intense rose scent calms you from the minute to inhale and every product they make smells incredible but also works to do the job in hand to which is meant to. A great one to keep in your travel bag!
MOA Fortifying Green Bath Potion, 10ml
A brand that is completely new to me but the words 'green bath potion' had me ready to start running one right away and I am not even a bath person. It smells of Fresh Peppermint! I am saving this one for when I have a cold as I have the feeling it shall work miracles.
Amie New Leaf Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish, 25ml
A brand that delivers skin friendly ingredients and this is a great handy sized facial exfoliator that is designed to help clear pores an soften skin and smells just like Tropical juice, it is divine. The grains are very gentle and leaves your skin feeling super smooth. Again as great travel item, as exfoliating is key to keeping your skin clear.
Weleda Pomegranate Body Lotion, 20ml
A lovely lightweight everyday body lotion that has a subtle fruity, Pomegranate scent. It really is a great way to keep your body nourished and I have been a fan of the brand for some time as they are very popular here in the South of France. A brand to surely try.
Ultrasun Face SPF 30, 25ml
A well known suncare brand and a great sized product to carry in your handbag or travel bag as you can easily re-apply when needed being a good daily SPF 30 for face. This is ideal for all skin types giving anti-aging protection for even the most sensitive of skins.
Balance Me Restore and Replenish Face Cream, 15ml
Again, a clean brand being 99% natural and a great daily moisturiser that helps to boost collagen and replenish moisture for all skin types.
Rosalena Rock & Rose Face Oil, 5ml
As soon as I saw this product was included in the collection, I knew there was good reason why I was so drawn to the whole collaboration. As you may know, I am a massive fan of Rosalena as my skincare collection would not be complete without their oils in it. Rock and Rose is the most amazing rose scented facial oil you shall ever try. Both me and my husband use Roselena daily as trust me, they work miracles for your skin. The fact that I now have this dinky size pleases me greatly, it is so damn cute. I have a full in-depth review all about Rosalena Facial oils which I urge you to go and read because they really are something very special. The fact that Rosalena have contributed to this collection makes it even more worth while in my book.
This Works Sleep Plus Trouble Shooter, 10ml
It was as if this collection was made for me as this again is another product that I cannot be without! This Works Sleep Spray is a night time must in my house as it really does work. The fresh Lavender scented spray, helps you to fall asleep and the PLUS version helps you to stay asleep also. In all my years of trying products have I come across one that works as well as this one.
Aurelia Aromatic Repair and Brighten Hand Cream, 7ml
I just very recently reviewed my first ever Aureila skincare product, the Miracle Cleanser and I loved it [here]. This hand cream is no exception as the beautiful scent of Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Vetiver make this a very luxury miniature.
I really am astounded at how good this collection really is. Both companies really have their fingers on the pulse point of what the latest trends are. The brands featured here really are some of my all time favourite luxury brands that collectively make this a faultless buy.
I love the concept, the brands, the products and more importantly, the price! If you are going on holiday then all the skincare work has been done for you with this travel friendly set that shall leave you smelling amazing. The Perfume Society also have Travel Fragrance Sets that make the art of travel and the possibility to sample new smells, possible! A great opportunity to introduce us all to brilliant products at a great price.
If you like what you see you can buy this now for just £20 online here from Latest in Beauty.
The Perfume Society have some great luxury fragrance sets at great prices here and Latest in Beauty are a company you need to check out as they have some really great collections especially the latest Harpers Bazaar Collaboration Box ... I mean, I want it and you shall too!!!.
