The British Beauty Blogger and Latest In Beauty have recently teamed up to create The Dream Box, full of plenty of amazing products. The British Beauty Blogger has previously released two other Beauty Boxes and they sold out within hours, as did this and so I was extremely excited when I managed to purchase one.
Here is what is inside…(Some shades and fragrances do vary from box to box, and this is what I received in mine)
Bourjois Cream Blush
I received Shade 03 Rose Tender. This is a really pretty peach colour, and I do actually use one of the other shades of Bourjois Cream Blushes on a daily basis as they are really easy to apply and you can control the depth of colour. It gives cheeks a sunny warmth that livens the face straightaway in a cream to powder formula.
Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint Cleansing Water
During the summer months, cleansing water is a must have, and this particular version is really light and effective for removing grime and make-up whilst at the same time being very gentle on the skin. You can enjoy 20% off your first purchase at www.beegood.co.uk using the code BEAUTY14 at the checkout. (Expires 20th July)
La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water Spray
I had read a lot about the brand La Roche Posay on other beauty blogging sites but had not yet purchased any of the products and I will certainly be taking this to Egypt with me. It is perfect during warm weather, especially if you have had a bit too much sun! It is best kept in the fridge for quick, soothing spritzes powered by selenium that will calm and soften your skin. You can currently save a third on all La Roche-Posay at www.escentual.com until 30th June.
Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Kisses
I received So Marilyn, which is a lovely deep seductive red. You simply tear open the sachet and use your finger or a lipstick brush to apply the formula. What makes this product so special is a light diffusing formula and a clever ingredient from the Lipstick Tree (and yes I am telling the truth here believe it or not!).
Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream
Now I have actually purchased this product before and found it ever so handy at 20ml, to pop into my suitcase on holiday to keep my feet smelling and looking sweet. It is a deliciously cooling formula made with eucalyptus and lemon and is highly moisturising too. Receive 20% off full size Elemis products at www.timetospa.co.uk using the code DREAMB2 at the checkout. (Expires 20th July)
Essie Nail Polish
I received a beautiful ballet shoe shade in this well-known, reliable but fun nail polish. Essie’s brushes are exactly the right size to sweep over the nail in one go meaning that you get a smooth and glossy finish in just two coats. I have used Essie for years now and I must say it rarely chips and they do some amazing colours.
Kneipp Herbal Baths
The scent I received was May Chang and Lemon and it smells divine! A gorgeous, uplifting and happy fragrance, this Enjoy Life bubble bath is an absolute treat at bathtime. You can enjoy 2 for 1 on Kneipp body washes at www.graftonsbeauty.co.uk/kneipp until 10th June.
Janjira Hand Wash
Janjira is a brand I had not previously heard of until I received my Dream Box. It is a travel size hand wash and the fragrance I received was Thai Lime and Ginger which is really zesty and refreshing. Another item I shall be popping into my suitcase! Use code BBB20 and receive 20% off all products at www.janjira.co.uk until 30th June.
Makeup Revolution Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow Palette
Makeup Revolution is a new beauty brand that doesn’t skimp on quality but saves you pounds in your pockets. There are so many pretty, shimmery and matte shades in this palette and it is great that they have included eyebrow powders in the palette, which are so on trend at the moment, meaning less separate products to cart around with you. Take 25% off your order at www.makeuprevolutionstore.com using code MUR25 at the checkout until 30th July.
Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge
This pocket-sized spritz will give you an olfactory taster of ginger in many guises. With bottom notes of candied ginger topped with mandarin and pomegranate, it is a little burst of summer in a bottle. Personally this wasn’t something I would wear, but I still loved the smell. BBB20 will get you 20% off the fragrance at www.escentual.com
L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Lotion
L’Occitane is one of the premium brands in the beauty and skincare business, and I think it is such a treat to use their products – I particularly love the lavender range. The Immortelle Divine Lotion is a softening lotion for the skin to be used after the cleansing stage and before moisturising. It will make your skin feel softer and make it look brighter.
Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream
A little pot of It’s Potent Eye Cream is perfect for popping into your travel beauty bag, and it contains a peptide complex that wiggles its way into crinkles to restore elasticity and firmness as well as tackling dark circles. I have used this product before and it is definitely one of my favourite eye products as it feels nice and light upon application.
Ren Satin Perfection BB Cream
This BB cream is one of Ren’s top sellers as it is a silicone free formula with a non-oily format, which gives a satin finish alongside anti-ageing ingredients and SPF. It provides light coverage as well as providing you with smart skin care. Receive 20% off all products at www.renskincare.com before 16th June.
LOLA Kabuki Brush
Kabuki brushes have been big news in beauty over the past few years, their versatility means that you can use them with powders, bronzers and blushers, providing just the right amount of product onto the skin. The LOLA Kabuki Brush diffuses product really well but it is tight enough that you can get excellent blush and bronzer definition too.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
The name of this mascara may make a few of you blush a little, but the results from the product are outstanding. I have used many Too Faced bronzers and blushers in the past and get thoroughly upset when they run out. I was very excited to try this mascara and was definitely not let down. It is the deepest carbon black with a collagen infused formula that provides you with the thickest, darkest lashes ever.
I have really enjoyed being able to try out new and old favourite beauty products from the Dream Box (£19.99 from www.latestinbeauty.com) and would like to thank British Beauty Blogger for coming up with such a fantastic box. I shall definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for the next one.
