British Beauty Blogger’s collaboration with Latest in Beauty – The Dream Box

They really weren’t kidding when this box was named – The moment I learned of this box it really Was my dream box. A collaboration between Jane from BBB and LiB, as one of my favourite box companies, just genius! And that’s  before you even see what’s inside this beauty! Wow, just wow. It’s out of stock, already, I’m afraid but Latest in Beauty still have 5 boxes up for grabs in their giveaway HERE – You need to enter, I’d love for one of my readers to be a winner!

This is the third beauty box from Jane, the first two she released herself, via her blog, and it’s no surprise it sold in no time at all. The box is £19.95 with free p+p an her boxes Always sell. The added draw of the box being in collaboration with Latest in Beauty made it even more exciting, for me at least!
The box is full to bursting with samples and full sized products which will please so many people – I couldn’t even get everything back in my box, too much amazingness!
First up we have the Elemis ‘Treat your feet’ foot cream – Not a brand I’ve tried much I was very happy to see Elemis in the box and I’ll never say no to a good foot cream. With 20ml of product this is an amazing start to the box.
L’Occitane is a brand I love but can rarely afford – Their products scream luxury, to me, and they’re just an amazing indulgence. The fact that this 50ml bottle holds their ‘Divine Lotion’ adds to that luxury feel as this stuff just smells amazing, just like walking in to their store.
Roger & Gallet is a band I’ve only tried via beauty boxes, thus far. This little perfume sample is of their ‘Gingembre Rouge’ fragrance and I am in love! It’s light and fruity with a background warmth of ginger, yes please!
I’ve heard So Much about Charlotte Tilbury (who hasn’t!) but never tried one of her products before. This wee sachet contains a really intriguing little product which is a lip product you press directly onto your lips from the card. These ‘Lipstick Kisses’ are just such an amazing idea, I have the shade ‘So Marilyn’
Ooh some La Roche Posay never went amiss and a new ‘Thermal Spring Water’ spray isn’t something I’ll say no to, either. I’ve had these from various brands and absolutely love them for a refreshing spritz in the warm weather.
I was absolutely thrilled to see Bee Good in the box – I’ve recently posted about their 2-in-1 cream cleanser (HERE), which I am totally in love with, so I couldn’t be happier to have another product of theirs to try. I love cleansing waters so this ‘Honey & Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing water’ is a welcome addition to my collection, I’ll be using it along side the cream cleanser and the moisturiser I’m currently trialling, of theirs.
It’s, absolutely, the weather for BB creams so this ‘Satin Perfection’ bb cream from Ren was a very welcome addition to the box (‘eck, anything from Ren would be a welcome addition!)
Love nail polishes, love Essie, love love LOVE this shade that I’ve received in the box! This deep, muted, blue shade that I’ve been lucky enough to get is called ‘Hide & Go Chic’. I will have this on my nails before the day is out. 
I missed out on getting a Lola brush in the You Beauty boxes this month so More than happy to get a second chance by getting one in here. This Kabuki brush feels amazing, dense but soft and I can’t wait to try it out with various powder products.
I get very dry hands so a nice quality hand wash is a real luxury for me. This ‘Thai Lime & Ginger’ hand wash from Janjira smells divine! I love ginger scents so am so happy to have got this one, though wouldn’t have been disappointed with the Argan oil one either.
I cannot believe I’ve not bought one of the Bourjois ‘Cream Blush’ before now, but I’m also quite glad as I’d have bought this shade and would have had a duplicate. I’ve heard So many things about these and now that I have one I doubt it’ll be long before I get more.

I got the shade ‘Nude Velvet’ which is a, simply, beautiful shade and I am itching to try it out. I’ve already broken in to my cream blush stash, at the first sign of warmer weather, so it won’t be long before this graces my cheeks. 
Who’s going to be disappointed with some Benefit in a beauty box? Not me, that’s for sure! The ‘It’s Potent’ eye cream is something I’ve not tried before so this insanely cute little 3g jar will be a fantastic chance to give it a try.
If there’s something I could do with more of it’s products that offer to help reduce stress! This Kneipp ‘Herbal Bath’ has the words ‘Stress free’ proudly emblazoned on the bottle so I am looking forward to some sensational Mandarin and Orange scented stress free baths in the future. Though I definitely wouldn’t have said no to the ‘Enjoy Life’ option which is lemon scented, I do love citrus in general. I was amazed at this huge bottle, especially when you only need one cap full per bath.
If you know me at all then you’ll know how elated I was to see Makeup Revolution in a beauty box! Having been to their launch (HERE) and loved so so many of their products I’m so pleased to see them in a box And for it to be a product I’ve not got (shocking considering how much I have in my collection!)

It’s called ‘Make Believe’ an it has 12 eye shadow shades and two eye brow shades which is a fantastic amount in such a small, sleek palette. I was hoping for a neutral offering but I’m actually rather pleased with this more colourful option, the shades are gorgeous with a few nice neutrals thrown in too. Very much looking forward to swatching this for you all!
Not intentionally, but I’ve managed to save the most impressive product for last! Too Faced  in a beauty box… Too Faced in a beauty box!!! This mascara costs almost the whole value of the box, it’d set you back £19 on its own and I couldn’t believe it was a full sized offering in a box of this cost!! I absolutely cannot wait to try out this mascara but for now I shall look at the packaging and the tube and go ooooooooooh!

I’m absolutely blown away by this box and I, for one, am glad that Jane didn’t stick to her decision to only do one of her boxes and that she’s partnered up with LiB this time! Absolutely amazing. I haven’t worked out what’s sample size and what’s full sized or the values of everything as this was a big enough post anyway but the value of this box must be massive! I am itching to go and do my makeup now!

    I was right there with card in hand at launch time but didn't order when I saw what was in the box because I already own or have tried most of it so it wasn't worth it for me personally. It is definitely an awesome box. I'd love to know your thoughts on the Charlotte Tilsbury lipstick!

    What a fantastic box! I've been trying to cut down on my spending (at least with toiletries, cosmetics) but I've entered the competition so hopefully I will be fortunate enough to win one!

    I like the name of it – The Dream Box. Looking at the products the name is very accurate
