Latest In Beauty‘s newest collaboration is here and it’s the third installment of their Dream Box series, which has seen them team up with Jane Cunningham, freelance beauty journalist and writer at British Beauty Blogger, to deliver a beauty box packed with higher end, lust-worthy products as well as exciting, budget-friendly brands.
This latest box really does have the WOW factor; full of top-to-toe treats from an array of established brands along with a few new discoveries, there is something for every beauty fan. So whether you love your makeup, skincare or nails read on and see what gems Jane has sourced to pack into this impressive box.
Dr Organic Lip Balm in Argan Oil (Full size, £3.49) – One of my favourite brands, Dr Organic makes affordable, organic beauty accessible to all. This lip balm is fortified with deeply nourishing oils of argan, avocado and almond so is perfect for dry lips. The addition of SPF15 is wonderful with summer hot on our heels.
OLEHENRIKSEN Pure Truth Melting Cleanser (15ml, £3.70)- I’ve tried a few OLEHENRIKSEN products recently and have been very impressed. Usually quite expensive it’s nice to get the opportunity to sample this line of skincare and see if it works for your skin type before splurging on the full size.
Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Lotion (20ml, value £5) – I’ve recently become a convert to fake tanning and have a couple of favourite brands already. I’ll be interested to see how this tanner compares, which claims to last four times longer than other tans and doesn’t have the typical fake-tan smell. Handily a mitt is also supplied which is nice to see as I think it always results in a better finish.
Nuxe Crème Fraiche de Beauté Mask (Full Size, £18.50) – This product is doing the rounds at the moment and has been in a few beauty boxes. It’s not a bad thing though as this beautifully scented mask is perfect for boosting dehydrated skin.
The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Luxury Soap in Sea Kelp (Full Size, £4.95) – I love that this soap comes housed in its own tin as there’s nothing worse than not having anywhere to store your soap, plus it means you can use it for travel. Although I’ve heard of this brand before I’ve never tried anything from them so this fresh-scented soap is a great introduction.
DECIEM Hand Chemistry Intense Youth Complex (30ml, value £5.99) – I really love this intensive anti-aging hand cream, from its delicious scent to its effectiveness, so i’m pleased to have another to add to my stash. You can see my full review here.
Crabtree & Evelyn Pear and Pink Magnolia Body Lotion (50ml, value £2.88) – This lightweight body lotion has a powdery floral scent, but the addition of fruity pear stops the fragrance being too cloying. It also drenches your body in softness; I love it!
SALON SCIENCE® Reglosse™ Smoothing Serum (Full Size, £20.95) – It’s great to get a hair product in this box to shake up the selection a little. This is a new discovery and its formula, enriched with tocopherol and grape seed extract that helps to tame and instantly nourish dry, frizzy and uncontrollable hair sounds perfect for my hair, which is mis-behaving recently. Hopefully this serum will sort it out!
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Don’t Pink Of It (Full size, £9) – This is a liquid lipstick in a lovely dusky pink that I imagine will suit a lot of different skin tones. It has a lovely texture and great staying power.
Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum (1.5ml vial) – It’s nice to receive a perfume sample to break up the box a little and all the Roger & Gallet fragrances i’ve tried so far i’ve enjoyed. This is quite floral but fresh, the ideal summer scent.
Essence Nail Polish in Sweet At First Sight and I’m Lost In You (Full size, £1.60 each) – I’ve not tried anything by Essence but I’ve heard a lot of good things about this budget brand. Certainly whenever I’ve glanced at their makeup stand the products have looked the part so I’ll definitely give these very wearable pink and nude shades a whirl this summer. Frosted pink isn’t really my thing but I’m prepared to be persuaded!
Benefit They’re Real! Remover (7.5ml, value £2.20) – This creamy eye makeup remover from Benefit was specifically designed to remove They’re Real mascara. Whilst I am a fan of the mascara I wasn’t overly impressed with the remover when I bought the full size and found I preferred the texture of my trusty Clinique bi-phase remover.
Eye Of Horus Pencil Eyeliner in Nubian Brown (Full size, £17) – This creamy eyeliner is in the most gorgeously deep brown shade, and fine gold glitter lends a bronze shimmer. Eye of Horus brand is one I’ve seen and lusted after before for its super-luxe packaging so I can’t wait to test out this eyeliner properly. Brown isn’t a colour I’d usually pick up but it makes a nice change from the usual black of which I already own loads!
Makeup Revolution One Fluid Blush in Desire (Full size, £3) – This is so obviously a dupe of Daniel Sandler’s famous and much hyped Watercolour liquid blush but I’ve never tried either, so i’m looking forward to trying this. I own quite a few Makeup Revolution palettes but never really explored their other products.
Orelia Temporary Tattoos (1 sheet, £5) – Gold and silver metallic tattoos seem to be all the rage on Instagram and they do look gorgeous. I’ll definitely be trying these in summer when I imagine their delicate patterns will look stunning paired with bronze, sun-kissed skin!
The Dream Box is crammed full of a fantastic array of 16 gorgeous products that have all been tried, tested and approved by Jane. Once again her impeccable taste shines through, as well as her knowledge of current beauty trends and awareness of what beauty fans want, and I’m bowled over by the value, quality and variety of the products showcased!
The British Beauty Blogger Dream Box 3 is still available to order here at the amazing price of just £21.95 including postage. For a contents that are worth over £100 that represents phenomenal value! Have you taken the plunge and purchased the Dream Box?
