This is my first proper post after my hiatus. I think it’s fitting that it’s the Latest in Beauty Dream Box III. It’s an amazing beauty box for an amazing price and the best thing of all is that you get really good products for the price you pay. Not only this but thanks to beauty blogs in general, I managed to find out about the second dream box and that was a pretty popular post. It makes sense that I’d buy the third one and also feature it on my blog.
First up is these Essence Nail Polishes. They’re such pretty shades and I’ve heard so many things about these that I kinda hope they live up to their hype. I can’t wait to try them as I think they’ll be amazing! The best thing about these is that they’re £1.80, so if they’re good then it’ll be an affordable nail polish to buy.
I was really excited to see the Benefit They’re Real Remover in the box. I’m really wanting to branch into the higher end makeup brands and I suppose a makeup remover is a start. I’ve only used this a couple of times and it worked pretty good. It did make me look like a panda though. I’m thinking of writing a separate review of this at a later date so watch this space.
The Eye of Horus Teal Eyeliner is so pretty yet so impractical to me. If it was a brown or black I’d love it but having green eyes means a teal eyeliner just makes my eyes look dull, plus I’m too scared of this shade. It’s such an amazing formula, super pigmented and long lasting, but I just don’t like the shade.
Everyone loves a good lip balm and the Dr Organic Lip Balm is no exception. This is so nourishing on my lips and with the benefit of an added SPF of 15, it makes for an all round great lip balm.
I feel like temporary tattoos will be pretty big this summer and these ones by Orelia look so beautiful. I am contemplating getting a tattoo but they are expensive and forever. I don’t know if I’m ready to commit just yet, but these temporary ones mean I have the luxury to not do it.
Something I’ve neved tried is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet and I happened to receive Nude-ist, the shade I’ve always wanted. I’ve not properly tried this yet but I have swatched it and I love the shade and the feel of this. I may do a full review on it soon.
The Scottish Fine Soaps Luxury Milk Soap is something that smells incredible. I’m not very good at describing scents so I’m not going to try! It’s packaged in a cute tin which I love. I’m going to use this for cleaning my makeup brushes with. At the moment I find a bar of soap is the best thing for them!
The Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser, Vita Liberata Luxury Tan with a tanning mitt and the Deciem Hand Chemistry are all products I’m yet to try. The tanner sounds like it’ll be good for the summer and I can’t wait to use it. I’m also hoping the hand cream and cleanser will be good. These three products have to be some of the most exciting products for me, it’s just a shame that I haven’t used any of them yet. Trust all my cleansers needed to be used up, I’m dying to try the Ole Henriksen offering.
I’ve not really tried anything from Makeup Revolution and I like the look of the Makeup Revolution The One Fluid Blush in Rush Me. A water blush intrigues me and I think I may need to experiment with this to work out how it works best for me. Other than Daniel Sadler, I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else do anything like this. I’ll keep you updated if it works because I am pretty skeptical about a liquid blush.
The Crabtree and Evelyn Pear and Magnolia Body Lotion is a lotion that doesn’t feel heavy when applied and doesn’t take ages to sink in. I personally love the smell of the pear and magnolia, but I think it’s a scent that only some people like from reading reviews. One thing I have to say is the scent doesn’t last very long, but to me that’s fine. I just love how it makes my skin feel silky smooth.
So far I’ve tried the Nuxe Masque once. It smells really lovely, and isn’t the scent really the make or break of most products? As my skin is oily though, I’m not sure this is suitable for my skin. It did break out after using this so I do think that I’ll give this to my mum, her skin is probably better suited. Although it does say all skin types so I may have to carry on using it for a while!
Roger and Gallet Fleur de Figuier parfum just smells so fruity and lovely. I’m so tempted to buy the full size and I wish it was a bigger bottle. I just have too many perfumes to use first but then I will probably buy this fragrance!
I’m not ashamed to admit I have never heard of the Salon Science Reglosse Smoothing Serum. I personally find if you have no expectations you can’t be disappointed. I’ve used this once and the only thing that I guess I was a bit weirded out over was the fact it’s a clear serum. I really did think it would be a white serum. Other than that, my hair was softer and more manageable and less fizzy. I imagine a tube this size will last a while too. It’s a product I think I’ll enjoy.
What are your thoughts on the third dream box?
