I have to confess to being a bit of a lotions and potions junkie. I just can’t resist trying the latest products, not from the perspective of being desperate to get rid of wrinkles by using a magic pot of cream, but more from the way they smell and feel on the skin. We can all get carried away in the beauty halls of department stores, but there is a whole range of cosmeceutical products which are not so readily available on the high street, but which have been developed by leading skincare experts to really treat your skin. But where do you start? Individual products can be expensive, and as many of the cosmeceutical brands are less well known, not having the benefit of huge marketing machines behind them, often we hear about them via word of mouth or reviews on trusted websites and blogs.
I was pleased to discover that LatestinBeauty.com have launched their limited edition Harley Street Box, containing leading cosmeceutical products The products in this box have been developed by leading plastic surgeons, aesthetic professionals and dermatologists rather than beauty brands.
In the box you receive:
- HealGel Eye corrective eye formula (15ml, full size)
- Roloxin Instant Skin Smoothing Mask (x2 sachets)
- Heliocare 360° Oil Free Gel SPF50 (50ml, full size)
- Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum (30ml, full size)
- Exuviance Glycolic Expert Moisturiser (50ml, full size)
- Gingerlily Beauty Box Silk Pillowcase (standard pillowcase size)*
- £100 towards any treatment at Harley Street’s Waterhouse Young clinic
The £100 voucher towards any treatment at Harley Street’s Waterhouse Young Clinic,will allow you the chance to experience results-driven, non-invasive, aesthetic treatments such as a HydraFacial or chemical peel.
Individually the products would cost £300, but the box is available for £60 , the Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation retails on its own for £45 (my personal favourite from the box) so it really is a great way to dip your toe into the world of cosmeceuticals, and of course the silk pillowcase is a natural way to support the skin while you sleep and avoid ‘dragging ‘ which can lead to (more) wrinkles and help those of us whose hair gets in a tangled mess from sleeping from starting the day with a ‘bad hair’ day!
The products arrive beautifully packaged, so great as a treat for yourself or a gift.
LatestinBeauty.com is a great way to try new products at substantially reduced prices- you can buy one of the pre-packaged boxes -such as the Harley Street Box illustrated here, or put your own box together from a wide range of products – some full sized and some luxury sized samples. There is no subscription and no ongoing obligation. Personally I think it’s a terrific way to try out new products….and before you ask – I am not on commission – but perhaps I should be! 🙂
PS the pics were my attempt at being artistic – not sure I quite succeeded! 🙂
