Get the best celeb exclusives and video house tours to your inbox every evening with our daily newsletter
Love treating yourself to the very best beauty products? Can’t resist a bargain? Then here’s something you'll definitely want to snap up.
Today is the launch of OK! Beauty Edit, a brand new monthly beauty box curated by the OK! beauty team. It’s THE essential new way to sample beauty products at a fraction of the price, without even leaving the house. Our very first box can save you over £50!
If ever there’s a time when we want to look better and save a few pennies it’s now – and the Beauty Edit certainly delivers that, straight to your door.
Each monthly box costs as little as £13, contains beauty products worth a minimum of £30, and you don’t even have to pay for postage. Perfect!
We know the beauty world is a confusing place, with so many products to choose from, but now the OK! beauty team will be doing all the hard work for you. Each month we’ll be picking a selection of fabulous products, new and old, for you to fall in love with too.
You can pay £13 or £14 per box if you subscribe for six or three months, or you can go for a rolling subscription which still only costs £15, P&P all included. Each month you’ll get our edit of travel-size treats and deluxe samples, and even the occasional full size product.
We know you’re going to absolutely love our launch edit, which contains products worth over £65, plus a cute drawstring bag to store them in. Talk about luxe for less!
You can sign up right HERE, so don’t delay – our first Beauty Edit box is only available while stocks last, and with THREE (!) full-size products inside, demand is sure to be high.
We’ve been dying to tell everyone what’s inside box number one, and now we can finally reveal what we’ve put together. Here’s the lowdown from our beauty director Lynne Hyland…
Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm 150ml
First up, you’ll be getting a full size – yes, FULL SIZE – tube of one of my favourite hair saviours. That product alone is worth £31 – more than twice what you’ll be paying for the box.
Percy & Reed is an A-list celebrity hairdresser brand, and Wonder Balm is worthy of any red carpet (when glitzy events come back again, of course!) It works a treat on us civilians too. My hair is naturally rather frizz prone but I find it blow-dries a hundred time sleeker if I prep it with a dash of this. Oh and did I mention it smells like a rose-filled garden in heaven too?
Murad Night Fix Enzyme 5ml
If I could only use one skin brand for the rest of my life, Murad would be right up there on my shortlist. Its products are incredible, especially for anti-ageing effects. (And don’t just ask me, ask all the OK! readers who test products for our Real Beauty Awards. Murad was the ONLY brand that won a whopping three accolades this year.)
This particular product is something I’m always taking to bed, because it’s just so darn smart. Firstly, it genuinely repairs skin overnight and makes it look so much more radiant and smoothed out. Secondly, it actually increases the chance of getting a full eight hours because it contains a scent shown to relax your mind and prepare you for deep sleep. The absolute dream.
Dr PawPaw Multi-Purpose Soothing Balm in Outrageous Orange 25ml
Yes, another full-size beauty treat to top up your beauty cabinet! The original Dr PawPaw has been one of my staples for years, and now I’m rather obsessed with the new tinted versions.
As well as being fantastic for smoothing out chapped lips, they have just the right amount of pigment to put life back into my pale winter complexion. It’s too cold to strip off for fake tan but with a quick whoosh of this over my lips and cheeks I lose that ghostly Noel Fielding look. The future’s bright, the future’s orange (lip balm).
Balance Me Vitamin C Repair Serum 7ml
In all my years as a beauty director, I’ve never met a dermatologist who hasn’t extolled the benefits of vitamin C. It’s the superstar of the antioxidant world, and your number-one ingredient for glowy, more even skin and mopping up all the damage from a stress-filled lifestyle. (Oh hi, 2020, hope your ears are burning.)
So we couldn’t kick off our beauty box series without including this excellent serum with its slow-release form of vitamin C so you get the benefits without the irritation (a problem I find with some vit C products, but not this one). In tests 88% of women said it made their skin smoother, and I’m certainly not going to argue with that majority.
Parfums de Marly Delina and Pegasus Exclusif 1.5ml
I don’t know about you but one of the things I’m really missing is being able to stroll around beauty halls, sampling new fragrances – especially posh ones like these!
Parfums de Marly is an ultra-premium range that’s inspired by something really interesting – 18th century French royalty. I can’t resist a scent that takes me on a journey, and right now I can certainly lose myself in this gilded vision of aristocratic opulence.
A quick spritz of Delina and I’m not on a crumb-infested sofa, I’m on a chaise longue in Versailles, surrounded in a haze of rose, peony, lychee and cashmere wood. If you’re bored of smell-alike perfumes, this could be your ideal signature scent, as it’s distinctive and classic, yet totally modern.
The box also contains one of the brand’s hero male fragrances, Pegasus Exclusif, which is just divine – think pink pepper, bitter almond, wood and oud. It’s made for neck nuzzling, basically.
Being such premium fragrances, they really last on your skin so your sampler will last you ages while you cross your fingers and hope to unwrap the full-size bottle at Christmas… (Hint, hint, husband.)
Barry M Crystal Rock Nail Paint
And finally, because we just wanted to add a little extra sparkle to your life, you’ll be getting a full-size glittery nail polish. The exact colour will be a lucky dip but you won’t be disappointed whether you get a red, emerald, blue or pearlised cream to paint on your fingertips.
They’re all perfect for creating a Christmas manicure, and even if you’re only toasting the festive season over Zoom, you’re sure to get compliments.
But that’s not all. The Beauty Edit box is actually the centrepiece of a whole new OK! VIP Club which will offer subscribers a glossy beauty and lifestyle magazine, plus exclusive expert beauty content.
Sign up HERE and you’ll be the first to hear of our exciting celebrity collaborations. Just between us, there’s a fabulous famous name behind our second box….
We hope you love sampling the products we’ve put together, and we can’t wait to hear what you think of them!
