It was last November when the last Dream Box dropped and it was amazing (See my review here), so the day the 3rd box from the duo that is Latest in Beauty and The British Beauty Blogger i could not pass up on this. For £21.95  you get a mix of full size and sample sized brands all in this amazing box.

So let's get into the products:

Essence Nail Polish - I love Trends-  Pastel range in the shade Sweet at First Sight - Full size - £1.80 at Wilkinsons but this shade is N/A - This a lovely pinky / rose gold shimmery shade and for £1.80 the formula of this nail Polish is really lovely. I can't say how long it will wear but i have had it on for three days now and it has not chipped.  A great everyday / Night out colour. I think this brand will slowly rise in the affordable nail polish brand.

Essence Nail Polish I love Trends - Nudes Range in the shade I'm Lost in You.  - Full Size - £1.80 at Wilkinsons but this shade is N/A. - This is the perfect brown colour, not really a colour i usually go for in nail polish as it doesn't suit me. See above for more thoughts.

Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Self Tan Lotion - Medium 150ml - Sample Size 20ml with Mitt - Full Size £25.00. This is my second sample of this tanning lotion, the first which came with the You Beauty Christmas Calendar. I really liked the formula, i would say it lasts more to the 2 week mark and it begins to fade. However with this being the Medium shade, it was too dark for my skin. So I will be gifting this sample. However, because of the formula and how easily this blends into the skin, I will most likely give the lighter version of this a go.

Eye of Horus Pencil Eyeliner - Charcoal Obsidian (Various shades) - Full Size -  £17.00 - I can say I have never heard of this Lux brand. This has got to be one of the softest and most creamiest eyeliner, and is very easy to apply. I believe I will be able to smoke this out, especially on my lower lid line. Looking forward to learn more about this brand.

Roger and Gallet Fleur di Figuer Parfum - Vital size - COMING SOON (Water Spray £31.00) I believe this is a coming perfume, so i have added the water spray fragrance to the link. This scent is right up my street for spring and summer and i cannot wait till this drops, the fruit and floral notes really give a spring to your scent and make you smell wonderful. I have had a few compliments when i have worn this and now I only wish there were more in this vial.

Dr Organic Ice Mint Lip Balm (Flavours vary) - Full Size- £3.45 - I was extremely glad the mint one of these were in my box because my love for Mint lip balm is unreal. The mint smell and taste is really pleasant and as someone who has used Dr Organic products I was very happy with this one. I have only been using this a few days but i can tell my lips are starting to feel more nourished.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in the shade Nude-ist! - Full Size - £8.99 - I have been meaning to try these lip stains for ages and thank you to the BBB for putting this in the box. The shade is utterly perfect for me with my pink lips. It hasn't shown up any cracks when my lips have looked dried and has stayed on my lips pretty much all day. I can see what the hype has been about.

Benefit They're Real!  Remover - Sample Size - £14.50 - I have stayed away from this product from this price and i am glad that i have. I can't say i noticed too much difference to remove my eye make up from an oil make up remover or even a balm and to be honest i feel this product made my under eye area feel a bit sensitive and dry. This product does remove eye make up, but it doesn't add anything  that balm's and oil cleanser's don't already use. A bit of a branding gimmick product for me.  I don't think I will purchase a full size.

The Scottish Fine Soaps Company in Sea Kelp - Full Size - £4.95 - Soap with Kelp in it? Yes please. I love these kind of soaps. This soap really lathers and smells so fresh. My skin felt so nourished and soft and after applying body lotion i noticed the next day my skin felt softer, more than the lush sea vegetable soap. Definitely a winner. Will have to treat myself to one of these once it runs out.

Make up Revolution One Fluid Blusher in Pink Dew - Full Size - £3.00 - I have heard about this brand all over the web and was excited to see that one of their products were featured. I have also heard about the fluid blusher craze and was a little scared this would be so runny. The formula is great and you can easily get the right amount to apply to your face. Very bendable and gives me a lovely flushed finish. Very impressed and need to try more from this brand.

NUXE Creme Fraiche 24hr moisturising mask 100ml - Full size - £18.50 - I love a bit of NUXE and this mask is no exception. My skin is very dry at the moment and this mask made my skin feel so soft and well nourished. The texture is lovely and very easy to take off once the ten minutes is up.  The redness on my cheeks had gone the next morning and worked well with a mask.

Orelia Gold Tattoo's - £8.00 - Full packet - This is not something i would purchase and most likely something i will not wear, however for festivals and such, i think these are a fun idea. The pattern's are really cool and they come in a mix of designs.

Ole Henriksen Pure Trush Melting Cleanser 100ml -15ml Sample Size - £24.99 - This brand has really been shouted about so i was thrilled to see this was in this box. I love a good melting cleanser and this was no exception. The amount of good products in this such as many vitamins and oil's this cleanser does not just feel great and smells great. My skin feels so amazing after this.

Hand Chemistry Intense Youth Complex 30ml - £7.99 - This hand cream is lovely and i am one of those people that needs more hand cream than ever as my hands are so dry. My skin feels so soft after using this product. I can't say much for the 10 days of yet, but i will be sure to let you know if this helps. The cream is really creamy and makes my hands feel soft. It doesn't peel of the skin like a lot of hand creams i have used do.

Crabtree and Evelyn Pear and Pink Magnolia Body Lotion 250ml - Sample Size - £16.00 - I haven't used this body lotion myself as my skin isn't great with fragrance, however my mum has found this really lovely. The product smells great and her skin looks so lovely. It is great for people with good skin to be able to put on a lotion and still smell good for a good few hours, i could still smell this scent on her a few hours later. Might be a little christmas treat for my mum this year for sure.

Salon Science Regloss Smoothing Serum GSP-T Swiss Grape 50ml - Full Size - £18.00 - Never before have i used a hair serum but this has already given me high expectations. My hair is a little dry and due for a cut tomorrow and i think this serum has tied me over the weekend. My hair feels full of body and very soft. I think once my hair is cut i will be using this a lot more to keep it feeling and looking great.

WOWEEE this box is packing the punches and still my all time favourite and this is no exeception, if you are new to skincare and beauty these box's are really a great place to start. Have any of you bought this box, what do you think? What product are you looking to purchase from this box? Or are there any items you already own and love from here?
