Precious Petals BBB Box

Anyone who reads my blog will know I am a huge huge fan of L'Occitane, Melvita and Erborian, whom, if you didn't know, are all from the same L'Occitane group. So when I was offered the chance to review Jane from British Beauty Blogger latest collaboration I was in there like a shot and it is just a fantastic beauty box.

Firstly the actual box is just stunning. If you like your floral designs, then this is perfect for you and it is one of those boxes you will keep for storage and not chuck in the bin! Inside you are greeted with a beautifully packaged box with the contents hidden behind tissue paper. One part of these boxes that Jane does do, that I love, is the little booklet. It is all well and good to throw products in a box, but I am nosey and want to know why it has been included because in my mind and in a draft post, I have made my own dream box filled with products I adore. Anyway, the products which have been chosen are referred to as being 'best petal-inspired' and this is what we have:

L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Hand Cream 30ml - If you have never used a L'Occitane Hand Cream before, then you are in for a real treat because this one is just divine and perfect for your handbag. It is Shea Butter infused making it the perfect moisturiser for those dry, dehydrated hands and it has a beautiful sweet flowery Cherry Blossom scent that I absolutely love. RRP £8


Precious Petals BBB Box

L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil 75ml - For me, this is the best ever shower gel, I am yet to try one I love more than this. A best seller for L'Occitane, you need just the smallest amount for the most amazing lather, once the scent hits warm water, the almond scent comes to life and it leaves your skin feeling super soft, hydrated, moisturised and smelling good enough to eat. RRP £7


Precious Petals BBB Box

L'Occitane Divine Cream 8ml - Again, another favourite of mine and one which is an absolute treat. A lovely luxurious feeling cream, it is not only hydrating as it contains hyaluronic acid, it smells as the name suggests 'divine' and is everything you need in a cream. RRP £14


Precious Petals BBB Box

Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water 28ml - This is one product from Melvita that I haven't tried, but right now, I am all over face mists and floral scented products. Using Damask Rose, the scent is truly stunning, like walking into a florist that only sells fresh roses, for me that is the scent. This is the perfect size for transporting in your handbag so that you can spritz it as and when you feel like it. Perfect for hydration and as a tip, on a really hot day or in the Summer, put it in the fridge for around half an hour before you need to use it - perfection! RRP £3


Precious Petals BBB Box

Melvita L'Or Bio 17ml - This body oil from Melvita is one I adore. Primarily a blend of Argan Oil, Kendi Oil and Buriti Oil, your skin is instantly soft and smooth to the touch but what wins it for me is the stunning scent - using lemon, orange, bergamot, fig, jasmine and a slight hint of vanilla it is the kind of fresh scent you expect in a perfume for the Spring and Summer, it is just so lovely. As an oil, you dont have to worry about it leaving your skin feeling greasy because it doesn't, the texture is really lightweight and it absorbs quickly. RRP £6.50


Precious Petals BBB Box

Erborian CC Cream £15ml - Erborian has become one of those brands that I cannot get enough off, it is simply brilliant. This CC cream isa really clever little thing because it adapts to your skintone to give a much more natural coverage. It contains Centella Asiatica which is a small green plant that helps to moisturise and soften the skin. If you have never tried a CC cream, then this is definitely worth picking up because it is amazing. RRP £17


Precious Petals BBB Box

Erborian Carmellia Essence 3ml - Again if you feel your skin is in need of hydration, products such as this from Erborian are the greatest ever finds and this bottle is a perfect introduction. I use mine at night when ive had a hectic week, have been travelling around London and feel that my skin needs a hydration shot. It has 73% content of Camllia Oil followed by flaxseed, coconut, argan and grapeseed oil so as you can imagine it is deeply nourishing and is said to accelerates cell renewal and improves elasticity, helps to fight skin ageing and protects the skin barrier. RRP £6


Precious Petals BBB Box


Once you have tried these amazing products and you find something you want to supersize and purchase the full size, inside the box is a £10 off voucher for each of the featured brands and as an extra, you will find a postcard that gives you the chance to share your thoughts on the box, send it back to Latest In Beauty, the postage is paid and you could be in with a chance of winning a £250. The Precious Petals box can be purchased at Latest In Beauty priced at £20 with free p+p. With the contents amounting to £61.50 if bought separately it really makes it excellent value for money.

  3. This box looks beautiful. I love the L'Occitane almond hand cream so I imagine the shower gel smells heavenly. I have a few Melvita samples I've still yet to try so I'm definitely going to look these out for a pamper session.

  8. What a great box! I love the packaging and how they have linked all their floral products together. I also like the booklet. As you say, anyone can throw some products in a box, the booklet explains the reasoning which I like.
