British Beauty Blogger Dream Box 3

Latest in Beauty is one of my favourite beauty sites at the moment, I absolutely love all the beauty boxes they have done recently and think it is such great value for money. I think beauty boxes are a good way of trying out new products, especially since Latest in Beauty do a great job with their boxes. Latest in Beauty is a fast and efficient company, I haven't had any troubles with them and for online shopping I count that as a success.

Crabtree & Evelyn Pear & Magnolia body lotion

This body lotion smells incredible, I love the fruity pear fragrance and this has to be one of my favourite products in the box. It is also the perfect travel size product and fits well in your handbag, you could even put it into a clutch bag on a night out. :) I 100% get why Jane has put this product in the box and am thankful that she did.

Bourjois Rouge Velvet

I actually saw these in Superdrug a couple of days before I ordered the box and thought I have definitely got to try them out. Then I saw the box and thought it was meant to be. Out of the two colours included in the box, I got the one I wanted and so far it looks good. The two shades were Nude-ist and Don't Pink Of It, I received Don't Pink Of It and it looks beautiful for this season, well once the sun decides to come out and the rain/windy weather disappears. The only thing that seems like a negative point so far is that it just has a generic smell and I always like makeup with a nice scent.

 Essence nail polish

I like that there are two different nail polish shades included in the box, it means if people don't like one colour the they can try the second one. I personally prefer the nude shade, as I don't think the pink one will be dark enough on and might look patchy.

Nuxe Creme Fraiche De Beaute Mask 

My mum has always taught me to have a good skin care regime and to take good care of my face, so I always like trying out new skin care products. I especially love trying face masks so am glad this was included in the box, it is meant to rehydrate and smooth your face which will be good in this temperamental weather. The only downside I have noticed so far is that it smells slightly like Savlon, which reminds me of being injured.

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser

I am very intrigued by this item and a melting cleanser is not something I had heard about before, it kind of looks like honey or even wax actually. According to the label you can use it on your hands or skin and it helps melt away makeup or any impurities. It sounds like a dream product and I cannot wait to put it to the test.

Dr Organic lip balm

I have never heard of Dr Organic before, so I look forward to trying a new brand and seeing if it is a good lip balm. Out of the three potential shades I would have preferred Cherry, however, I ended up with Argan Oil, which smells a bit like marzipan, and I am not entirely sure I like it. I have always liked other argan oil products so hopefully this will be no exception.

Makeup Revolution The One Fluid Blush

I am slightly skeptical about the fluid blush, simply because I have never tried anything like this before and am worried how to apply it without messing up my makeup. However, I have liked the other Revolution items so far and look forward to trying this out.

Eye of Horus pencil

I have another eyeliner to test and I am so excited to, it looks like a really good quality eye pencil and it is obviously good otherwise it wouldn't have been chosen to go in the box. I got a nice brown shade that will pair well with brown smoky eyes and will use it when I next go out.

Benefit They're Real remover

Makeup remover is always a handy product to have, I am really happy that a Benefit item was included. I have tried out all of the 'they're Real' beauty range including the mascara and eyeliner; the remover was last on my list to try.

Salon Science Reglosse Smoothing Serum

I am in love with this hair serum, it has the most amazing scent ever and I have already used it a couple of times. I look forward to trying it for a couple of weeks and seeing if it does what it says, I have been impressed with it so far.

Deciem Hand Chemistry 

According to Jane this is one of her favourite hand creams ever and you can see visible results in 11 days. I am excited to put this product to the test and see if in 11 days I have smoother and hydrated hands. I do sometimes get dry hands and this would be a lifesaver, this weather is also being really harsh on my skin so anything that can help is welcomed.

Also included in the box was Roger & Gallet Fleur De Figuier perfume sample and it smells fantastic for Summer! It is a strong scent but not overpowering, I'm actually considering buying the full sized perfume because I love it that much. I also got a Sea Kelp luxury soap from The Scottish Fine Soaps and I have already used half of it, the tin is really cute and will definitely keep it to store items in it. There was also a fake tan included in the box which I gave straight away to my housemate as it is was a medium shade and I am way to pale to ever be able to use it. The only slightly frustrating things about beauty boxes is that it is pot luck if you get an item to match your skin tone, it is understandable you cannot select the shades you want but for skin tone items such as fake tan you should be able to select what shade you want.

I am really happy with this beauty box and the fact that I managed to get my hands on it; the first two BBB Dream Boxes sold out so quickly that I wasn't able to get them. It came very quickly and I was so excited to open it! I cannot wait to see what Jane includes in the next BBB Dream box, such an amazing buy and well worth every single penny.
