Latest in Beauty - THE BRITISH BEAUTY BLOGGER - DREAM BOX II - At a Glance

Sadly i missed out on the first edition of this amazing beauty box so i couldn't miss out again, with the price being such great value for a range of full and sample sizes i just couldn't turn up a chance to try out some great products! And for £21.99 i could not pass up on this stunning little box. 

So let's break it down (Links and prices are all below):

1. Kerastase Nutritive Balm Satin 1 ( Sample Size) - I have tried some of their shampoo's before and this one is no exception, it is fantastic for Dry hair, nourishing it to help it feel soft and silky in these harsh winter months. Kiss the dryness goodbye.

2. Kerastate Nutritive Lait Vital (Sample Size) - Paired with the Balm Satin this is a great product to give the hair the moisture it deserves. Your hair does feel so much better with this, especially before you are due a good trim, i recommend all of the line on this one. 

3. Ardell Natural Lashes (1 set)- I'm not huge on fake lashes and this kit really is a true sample, giving you two types of lashes to apply, they look simple to apply and will give you a really nice lash effect without looking too fake. 

4. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick (Full Size Product) - I was extremely happy to see this in the box as i have just recently run out of one of my own. This saves my lips from being horrible and dry. It's a lot more portable than the cream and it feels like you are applying a sheer lipstick. An all time favourite of mine.

5. Invisibobble Submarine Yellow (Full product)-  I have heard about such great things about the Invisibobbles for quite some time now. They are discrete and with this incredible design which helps to avoid split ends and breaks from traditional hair bobbles. I do believe i will be giving this as a gift as i have short hair and i have no need to tie my hair up, but i  do love the concept of it, something i wish i had when i was younger with longer hair thats for sure. 

6. Mio Double Buff (Travel size) - I have been interested in trying some of the Mio line for some time, this looks like a great product for the winter months allow you to buff away dry skin and give you the exfoliation it deserves. I have tried lots of different scrubs but i love how different it feels, it is much gentler on the skin and unlike a lot of scrubs i have tried my skin does feel much better after use. I think i shall be repurchasing the full size once this leaves my mits!

7. Ciate Flashlights (Electric, 6 variants- Full Sized Product) - I honestly did not know ciate' did anything but nail varnishes so i was surprised with this little find. I have not been a fan of coloured lashes but this colour isn't too striking. Interesting concept but not for me. 

8. Bourjous Delice de Poudre Bronzing powder and highlighter (Full size) - Yes another product i have been wanting to purchase for some time, the bronzer right now is a little on the dark side for me but i know in summer it will work a dream, the highligher is stunning, and really makes your cheek bones pop! 

9. Burts Bees Lemon Butter Cutical Cream (Sample Size) - This smells beautiful, so fruity and fresh. This cutical cream is great to maintain your nails to keep them strong and growing well. I love Burt's bee's, affordable and always top quality products. You can definitely see the difference, helps to reduce the need of an expensive manicure when you can do it at home with the aid of this!

10. Essie - Toggle To the Top (Sample Size, colour varies per box) - Ah you need the perfect christmas polish that won't chip, with all that glitters. Oh wait, it's here. This is a stunning xmas nail varnish, perfect for the big day or the cheaky xmas do. Sparkle the day away.

11. Vichy - Aqualia Thermal light (Sample Size) - Oh this moisturiser is the business, it's light and makes your skin feel so soft and nourished. Moisturising is key in these winter months and if like me you don't like your face to be bogged down, you will love and feel the difference with this, will be purchasing a full size of this soon!

12. Sleek pout polish lip pot (Powder Pink - two variants- mini size) - This colour does not look as vibrant in the pot as i worried but this is a lovely lip polish, it heals your lips and gives you a lovely colour as well. I love sleek make up, it's so affordable and you look great!

13. Eyelure Shape Brow Crayon In Mid Brown- (Full size) - I was so glad to see a brow crayon as part of this pack as i do love a good fix for the eyebrows, this draws on perfect eyebrows and is the perfect shade for my brows. A new brand on me but one i will be going back to for sure and trying some of their other brow products.

14. Gardeners Hand Healer by LE COUVENT DES MINIMES - (TRAVEL SIZE) - Another brand new brand i have not hard off but a hand cream i really have enjoyed using, it smells great and really has made my hands feel a lot less dry than they were before use. 

15. Body Shop Beautifying Oils (Moringa, 9 variants) - Oh i love a good skin oil and this one from the body shop really soaks in and helps my skin feel moisturised through these harsh months, i have had a bottle of this before and loved it. Perfect! Oil's are not to be ignored, this doesn't make you feel too sticky and really nourishes the skin, making it look glowing as well as feeling great. 

16. Lola lipstick Ultra Shine (Strawberry Fields (not out in stores yet), two variants, full size) - Love this lipstick, the colour pay off is amazing and the moistursing feel of the lipstick is great. The lipstick is great long wearing and doesn't come off with general everyday tasks. 

17. Agent Provacteur Fatale (vial size) - This perfume is a mix between a floral and sweet scent and not something i would choose myself personally. I think the vanilla is a little overpowering on me but it does smell nice. It was about average day wearing and did rub off by the end of the day. 

18. NUDE skincare pro genius treatment oil (deluxe sample size) - This is what i was most excited about. This stuff is beautiful and honestly after a couple of uses has already made my skin feel so much better. The application is perfect. I will be definitely saving up to get this product full as it really is a luxury treat but well worth the price!
