The BBB The Dream Box

When I heard about The Dream Box from Jane, a.k.a The British Beauty Blogger, I knew I was going to buy it.  The last one, which you can see HERE was so fabulous and such good value for money, I was gutted to have missed the first.

Anyway, this collaboration has been done with Latest in Beauty and 15 products have been selected with a value of over £100 and it is literally jammed packed full.  I ordered mine and it arrived within 2 days which is amazingly quick and here are my contents. The Dream box cost £19.95 including P&P.

So in my box I got:

Bourjois Cream Blush in 03 which is called Rose Tender, I am looking forward to trying this properly rather than just swatching it like I do everytime I go into Boots.  RRP £6.99

Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint Cleansing Water - This is the product that really intrigued me and one I cannot wait to use.  It says it is a 3-in-1 Cleansing Water which dissolves make-up, cleanses and tones the skin. I am a new fan to this brand and love the fact they donate some of their profits to help support British Bees.

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water - A product I cannot rave about enough and have reviewed HERE.  This is 50ml size can and is perfect for putting in your handbag.

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Kisses - I have never used a Charlotte Tilbury product, though I have read a lot about them on other peoples blogs.  These little envelopes include a lipstick kiss and I am quite taken with the whole idea, they are a bit like a perfume sample, but in lipstick form and it gives you the chance to try it before you buy it in many respects, how clever!!  My samples are called 'So Marilyn'.

Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream - Everyone needs a decent foot cream, even people like me who hate feet!  This cream is a soothing foot cream which uses lemon and eucalyptus to moisturise and soothe.

Essie Nail Polish - Who doesn't love an Essie Nail Polish?  There was no insight as to which shade anyone would get and I was delighted with the one I got which is a very lovely pink called 'Style Hunter', one I haven't got and one I am pleased to add to my collection.

Kniepp Herbal Bath - I got the Mandarin scented one and I have already started using it and can already tell you that it is fantastic and it definitely does help with de-stressing after what has been a frantic few weeks for me.

Janjira Hand Wash - Not a brand I have ever come across though I am pleased I have because this Argan Oil version that was in my box smells amazing and given its size, is really handy for using in hand luggage for weekends away.

Roger and Gallet Gingembre Rouge which I absolutely love the scent of.  It is one of those scents which is perfect for a summer day as it includes both mandarin and pomegranate as well as candied ginger and definitely something I would purchase.

L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Lotion - This is a softening lotion for the skin which is to be used after cleasing but before moisturising and it is said to leave your skin feeling softer and looking brighter.  Not somethign I have ever used but looking forward to doing so.

BENEFIT it's potent Eye Cream - I have had my eye on this for a while now, I have read quite a lot of reviews about it, some good, some bad and quite a few indifferent, so I wanted to see what it was like for myself.  It contains a peptide complex that helps to restore elasticity and firmess around the eyes as well as tackling those dark circles

Ren Satin BB Cream - I love Ren products and I love BB Creams, so hopefully the two things combined will give me a fabulous product.  This is a silicone free formula which is said to leave a satin finish and it also contains anti-ageing ingredients as well as SPF15.

Lola Kabuki Brush - Chuffed to have this in my box as I cannot find the one I had and I can't stand applying bronzer or blush with anything other than a Kabuki brush.  This one is small enough to fit into my make-up to carry around on a day to day basis and the bristles are really lovely and soft.

Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara - This product is one of those that seems to be being talked about everywhere and I cannot wait to try it.  I love mascara, if I had to choose one make-up item I wouldn't leave the house without, it would be mascara.  This one is said to be collagen infused to give you thick, dark lashes and it is also paraben free!

The final item comes from Make-up Revolution, yes you have all heard of them and probably own most of the products currently available and I have to admit, my wishlist grows by the day.  This is the first item I have owned from Make-up Revolution and it is called the 'Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow Palette - Sticks and Stones'. This palette has 14 super intense shades with 2 eyebrow powders and probably wouldn't have been the palette I would have chosen because I tend to favour neutral shades because I find them much easier to work with and I feel more comfortable wearing them.
