Dream Box with Latest in Beauty-First Impressions

Chit chat June 2, 2014 Naomi

If you are a Beauty blogger and use Facebook or Twitter then you will already be very familiar with the contents of this particular box!. This is the Third box put together by Jane or the British Beauty Blogger, this time as a collaboration with Latest in Beauty, who have a good reputation for putting together good quality Beauty boxes.

I was overjoyed when I saw the Twitter link for this, so much so that when I read £100 worth of products for £19.95 I ordered mine without looking at the list of contents!!. I have had both of Jane’s two previous boxes and loved them, so I knew this was a bit of a no brainer.

On to the box. Inside it included a mix of 15 full size products, luxury samples and small samples. I will go over each thing in turn and my initial thoughts about each one….

Bourjois cream blush. This has been mentioned by me before and has popped up in a favourites post. I was happy to see the shade 3 Rose tender as it is my fave of the shades available. Brilliant little cream to powder blush that is long wearing and looks great on the cheek.

Bee good honey and wild mint Cleansing water. Now the whole Bioderma hype has quietened down it is good to look further afield at what other brands have to offer. I like cleansing waters because I am lazy and want something quick and convenient. Jane tells us it is effective at sweeping away grime and make up. I can’t wait to try this and at 100 ml it is a generous size.

La Roche posay thermal spring water. Back In the day I used to love my Evian face spritz and this is very similar. I will be taking this to Mallorca with me and after a hard days sun bathing I will whip this out the fridge {with my wine}and spritz my face to calm down any redness and soothe my skin.

Charlotte tilbury Lipstick Kiss. What a cute and lovely use of packaging! This comes in a little envelope and you find inside a lipstick kiss that you place on your lips to transfer the colour. I  got the shade Marilyn which is a dark red, regular blog readers know I like nude lipstick but I will save this for a night out.

Essie Polish. Love Essie and I already own a lot of their polishes. I got the shade spin the bottle which is a gorgeous nude beige colour, perfect for days when you don’t want full on colour.

Elemis Foot cream. My favourite Beauty brand hands down. I have not tried this before but I already know the quality will be high and I will love it. We are all flying into a panic about the state of our feet now it is Flip flop season, and because I have a bit of an obsession with buying Flip flops this has come at the perfect time.

Kneipp herbal bath Not a brand I am familiar with, it smells gorgeous in the bottle and I love anything uplifting and mood enhancing, so this is right up my street. Says on the box it has a 85% positive effect on the mood, will report back after I have tried it out.

Janjira Hand wash. There was a choice between two fragrances here, Argan or Lime. I was secretly hoping for Argan as I love it, and that is what I got. This is also going away with me to Mallorca. Another product that smells so good!

Makeup revolution Palette. A bit of a disappointment for me here. I had noticed that there was about 5 different palettes, and again it was pot luck which you got sent. One was a lovely neutrals palette which I would have loved, I got a mixture of mainly brights, which I won’t wear. I will say though there is a pretty pastel pink at the top which I tried and loved, so I will use it.

Roger and Gallet perfume This Is a little mini sample, and I wish we had been given a bigger bottle because It smells so nice!. A mixture of pomegranate, ginger and mandarin it is fresh and fruity and a little bit floral.

Ren BB cream. Unsure about this one. No choice of shade so unless I try it out I can’t say if it is too dark for my pasty skin. I do love Ren as a brand though.

Benefit It’s potent eye cream. I have tried this and it is very good, eliminated dark circles and works on wrinkles. Pot is glass, and though small is super cute for a sample.

Lola Kabuki brush. I had wanted a new Kabuki for a while so this is perfect. Lovely size and soft bristles. This will be great for my bronzer in the summer months.

Too faced better than sex Mascara. I am showing great willpower in not trying this, but I have about a million mascaras on the go now so I want a few to dry out first or be past their best before I open another. Super excited to get this, it retails for £19 so worth the price of the box already. It is Collagen infused and paraben free, winner!!

L’occitane Divine lotion. Love L’occitane so this will be good I know. Leaflet included in the box tells us it is a softening lotion to be used after cleansing and before moisturiser leaving skin softer and brighter.

That’s it, we reached the end.Did you get the box?? Do you love it?? I DO!!! Last word, a shout out to the lovely Jane… “Do more boxes and soon”!!!!!x
