BBB Beauty Box

I have a massive apology to make for being so poopy with blogging the last few days! I had some tests done last week to find out why I feel so ill all the time and then ended up back in A&E 2 days later because the pain was unbearable. I'm feeling much better now and especially as I now have a niece! My sister gave birth on Friday to her little girl, Phoebe Rose and she is just the cutest (I might be slightly biased!). It's so nice to buy pink things as I already have 3 nephews so only ever shop for boys! 

I know people will say I shouldn't apologise because it's my blog and I can post whenever but I've really missed it! Anyway on with the post...

I've heard great things about the BBB Beauty Box. If you don't know what it is, it's a box put together by Jane from BritishBeautyBlogger of 15 products she is loving at the moment (this is Box Number 3). The box itself is worth over £100 but retails at only £19.95! What a bargain and a great way to try some new products out before you commit to buying them!

L-R: Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream, Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge, L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Lotion, Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream, Janjira Hand Wash in Argan Oil, La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water Spray, Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint Cleansing Water & Kniepp Herbal Baths in Stress Free. 

Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream - A perfect travel size eye cream, which contains a peptide complex that works it's way into your skin to restore elasticity and firmness and to tackle dark circles. 

Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge - This is described as a little burst of summer in a bottle. It's a combination of candied ginger, mandarin and pomegranate. 

L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Lotion - This smells amazing! It's a softening lotion that's designed to be used after your shower but before you moisturise with the intention of making skin softer and brighter.

Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream - This is a perfect product with summer approaching! Nobody wants dry scaly feet when flip-flop/sandal weather is just round the corner! Apparently it has a cooling formula of eucalyptus and lemon. Sounds perfect for using on my feet after a days work in heels!

Janjira Hand Wash - I'm really hoping my hands don't react to this as it smells so good. I received the Argan Oil Handwash which smells fresh and aquatic. 

La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water Spray - This is going to be ideal for the hot summer weather we've been told is coming our way. BBB recommends that you keep this in the fridge for a soothing spritz that will calm and soften skin. Also ideal for post-workout to take the heat out your complexion without drying it out!

Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint Cleansing Water - I love a good cleansing water but was starting to think I wouldn't be able to take one on holiday as the bottles are always so large and heavy! But this size is perfect! Wild Water Mint is said to be very soothing and it contains Vitamin A and E (A and E seems to be a theme in this post!) and the honey makes it very softening. 

Kniepp Herbal Baths - I received the Stress Free version of the Herbal Baths, however there was also a Enjoy Life one. I think the Stress Free one is ideal for me because I get stressed quite easily! I'm really looking forward to using this after a long day at work for some vital me time and relaxation!

L-R: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Makeup Revolution Awesome Eyeshadow & Eyebrow Palette in Disappear Till Tomorrow, Lola Kabuki Brush, REN Satin Perfection BB Cream, Essie Polish in Hide & Go Chic, Bourjois Cream Blush in 01 - Nude Velvet & Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Kisses in So Marilyn. 

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - I've heard great things about this mascara from other bloggers so I can finally try it for myself! I'm not a fan of bristle mascara wands as I'm sure you know by now but I'm not going to let that put me off! This is a paraben free formula with collagen to give you the thickest and darkest lashes!

Makeup Revolution Awesome Eyeshadow & Eyebrow Palette - I received this in the shade Disappear Till Tomorrow, which contains a beautiful range of nudes and very wearable shades. I'm also really pleased this comes with 2 eyebrow shades as this is perfect for taking on holiday as it serves more than one purpose!

Lola Kabuki Brush - I'm so excited to try this. I'm a fan of LOLA makeup but haven't tried any of their brushes. This is going to be perfect for all powder aspects of my makeup routine and ideal for travelling too! 

REN Satin Perfection BB Cream - I've never tried anything from REN but heard amazing things. This BB Cream is a top seller due to it's silicone free formula. I'm pleased it gives a satin finish as I'm not a fan of a matte finish. I also really like that it has an SPF in it as being as pasty as casper means I burn easily!

Essie Polish - This is the one product I've tried in the box! Admittedly I haven't tried this shade but I know the Essie polishes are really good so I know this won't be a let down!

Bourjois Cream Blush - I can't get enough of cream blushes at the moment. They are a big must have in my opinion and I love pairing them with a powered blush as I find the colour payoff and lasting power so much better! This shade is perfect too as it's not too bright. 

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Kisses - Last and by no means least is this beautiful shade of lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury. Her makeup range and her makeup skills are amazing and what better way to dip my toe into the world of makeup perfection!

Well I think it's safe to say I'm very much looking forward to trying all these bits and pieces and I'm sure some of these will too become firm favourites of mine. I can't wait to get stuck in and try them all now! 

Did you order a BBB Beauty Box? What do you think of it? Have you tried any of the products included?
