For more information on this, please see our dedicated Delivery & Returns page.

Why can’t I order a sample that I know is on your site? 

There are a couple of reasons this may occur.  Firstly we only have a limited supply of beauty samples so we may simply have run out.  Secondly as we have a limited number of beauty samples, and we want as many people as possible to get the chance to try the samples, there are only a limited number of samples available to each member. We are constantly working to add new samples on the site so if on occasion you cannot see a product you would like to sample, do come back as we update each category regularly.

How many beauty samples can I order?

You can order as many LiB collections as you like, however for some partnerships, for example the British Beauty Blogger, you will only be able to order one box per order. This ensures that as many people get to discover the products as possible. You will only be able to order a maximum of 4 Build Your Own Box Samples (BYOB) in one order. Once you have tried a BYOB Sample, you will be prompted to provide feedback so we can ensure we continue to offer you relevant and enticing new samples. 

Why do you need so much information in my beauty profile?

Everyone is different. We all have a different skin type, hair type and prefer to use or apply beauty products in different ways. Therefore it is important for us to understand what your preferences are and know your own individual beauty profile to ensure that we can offer beauty samples that are best suited to you. The beauty companies we work with also want to understand their customers better so that they can use your feedback to improve their beauty products.

What will you do with my information?

We use your information present you with beauty boxes, offers and promotions we think you will be interested in. You can request that we remove you from our database and stop using your information at any time.  You can read more about this in the terms & conditions and the privacy policy.  We will never share your data with a third party, unless you have specifically given us permission to do so.

How often will you send me emails? 

Three weeks after we have sent your beauty samples we might email you and ask for your feedback on the beauty samples you have received. We also email you if we have any promotions we think you will be interested in or to let you know about new beauty samples or boxes which are available. If you do not want to receive any emails please go to your personal details page and update your information to state you do not want to receive communication.

Where can you ship my beauty samples or products?

Orders can only be shipped to UK addresses. We are currently working on making this service available in other countries.

Can I track my order? 

Yes! Once your order has been dispatched, you can track it's progress from the 'My Account' page. If you have any queries about your order, please email

What happens to the feedback I leave?

Anything you leave in the comments box will be published on Latest in Beauty in the reviews section, accompanied by your nickname. The rest of the feedback is collated with responses from other members and presented to the brand who provided the sample. This is so they can learn from your comments and produce better products in the future. We don’t publish or share personal details with brands, we only collect together the responses to multiple choice questions and share general results.
