The retail price of some brands/products is laughable! I’m a beauty box addict, and I’ve received for a tiny fraction of the cost creams/whatever “worth” £100+. Obviously things are only worth what people are prepared to pay for them, but £100+ for a 30ml (or 50ml) moisturiser? Avant springs to mind - I like the brand, and it’s a staple in beauty boxes so I’ve tried loads of their products, but they aren’t better or even nicer to use than other much cheaper brands. Ditto Eve Lom, and ESPA, and others I can’t think of atm.

I really am irredeemable. Just subscribed to Grazia magazine’s “Beauty Club”, £7.99 a month - anyone else a member? You get fortnightly copies of Grazia delivered by post, and an annual beauty box (should get it within 28 days of joining). Plus all the offers and discounts that apply to every other beauty subscription.
As I will soon be 60 and no longer liable for £20 a month subscription charges, I have the money to spare!

I’m liking my Latest in Beauty subscription, now on my 3rd or 4th month. It’s so nice getting a box where I like/want all 6 items, and take ages browsing backwards and forwards to make my selection.
Last month’s LF box was great, the first in ages where I’ve liked all 6 products. Glossybox is probably my least favourite, rare for me to like anything at all in their box, must remember to discontinue my sub when it’s due again next January.
