Hello again my lovelies.
Mark bought me the new beauty box from Latest In Beauty which arrived on Thursday. It’s in collaboration with Heart radio station and it’s called Heart Beauty Essentials. It’s very lovely. I’ve always wanted to get into beauty boxes, and there’s a few around now. With most of them you have to pay a monthly subscription, but with Latest in Beauty’s boxes they give us one-off themed boxes, which is always chock-a-block with products from fabulous brands, some full size and some mini/travel/trial size. I’ve had two boxes now, and both times I’ve been gobsmacked by what’s inside.
There is nothing in the Heart Beauty Essentials box that I won’t use. So, what do you get? From the left, a sample size of bareMinerals Complexion Rescue, a hydrating gel cream that combines skincare and coverage, it’s a bb cream, cc cream and tinted moisturiser in one product! The award winning Philosophy 3-in-1 Cleanser it removes makeup from the eyes, cleanses and tones the skin and lightly moisturises too. Next are two 50ml products from Dove, Youthful Vitality shampoo & Conditioner. Contains one of my favourite ingredients, Coconut Oil which made me love it right away. I’ve already used both products today, so a review will be coming soon! Next up, Green People Sun Lotion SPF 15 with Tan Accelerator, this is a 20ml size of product it smells amazing and is also organic too. They say trials have shown that you can tan faster by 25% when you use this lotion and the tan fading slows down by 50%. Sounds great to me, it means time spent out in the sun is reduced. Balance Me Radiance Face Mask is one of my favourite products in the box, I love the brand! I used the mask this morning, and it does what it says on the tube, it’s brightened my complexion completely, my skin is so much more radiant. Amie Hydrating Daily Moisturiser 100ml of product and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans as it’s free from any animal extracts. It’s paraben free and free of mineral oils. It’s also pH balanced. I haven’t tried this moisturiser yet, so I’ll get back to you with that. Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels 3.2g sachet containing a pair of eye gels to place under each eye for 10 minutes to help firm and de-puff tired eyes. Contains Icelandic glacial water which helps to tone and brighten too. Kneipp Devil’s Claw Herbal Bath contains natural essential oils and is beneficial for relaxing the back, shoulders and neck, a 20ml sample which is enough for 2 baths. Wild About Beauty Eyeshadow in the shade Alana. I’m not sure if everyone gets the same shade in the box or if there are other shades too. But this eyeshadow is skin friendly containing ingredients such as Aloe Vera and vitamins E and C. I’m thinking that this is a full size product in the box, 2.5g. Le Couvent des Minimes Cloisters Hand Cream smells absolutely divine! It’s deliciously floral and completely moisturising for hands, it’s gone straight into my handbag to use on the go. I had never heard of this brand, but because it smells so good I want to find more! This is a trial size 25ml. Vichy Idealia Life Serum is a 3ml sample. Suitable for all skin types and is paraben free. I’ve used this up already! There was enough for just one use, it’s to help skin look more radiant and even out the skintone, pores are meant to be reduced. Nails Inc Gel Effect nail polish in the shade Hyde Park Place. This is a full size nail polish in a gorgeous grey shade, one of my favourite colours for my nails so I was very happy to get this in my box. I’m wearing it now so I shall be writing a review on the wearability soon. Lastly in this amazing box of goodies is a cute little Heart shaped Face Cloth. You just immerse the heart in water and it expands, it’s ideal for removing your cleansers, masks and exfoliators.
So, for 13 products with a value worth over £70, I think that this box is fantastic value for £15.00, especially as I shall use everything in it. Ordering is easy from Latest in Beauty, and delivery very quick. We ordered this box on Sunday and I received it on Thursday, the only problem is with the courier. It’s Yodel, who never knock on the door to put the parcel in my hand, they always leave it on the doorstep. It wouldn’t be so bad if they wanted to leave it on the doorstep, if they could just knock or ring the bell so that I knew it was there?
