First look at the British Beauty Blogger Beauty Box!

Hello lovelies!

Happy Saturday! I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead.

First, an apology. I'm a bad blogger. I didn't blog about this so you could get a slice of this action for yourselves. I'm a bad, bad blogger. You can spank me now.

When Jane from British Beauty Blogger said she was doing a beauty box last week, I was in there like a rat up a drainpipe. It went on sale last Sunday, and I set 3 alarms to make sure I was up early enough to snaffle one as there were only 500 available. It sold for £15 plus £4.55 postage, which is an absolute steal as the contents are worth about £125. It sold out, of course.

It arrived this morning.

It contains: (Information below copied from the BBB blog.)

Lanolips (full size). I’ve raved about this since the first day I used it. I genuinely don’t leave the house without it and it has completely banished my dry lips.
BioEffect EGF Serum 2.5ml. I used BioEffect one evening for the first time and had a bit of a wow moment when I saw my glowing skin the next day.
Bourjois Cream Blusher (Full Size, Colours may vary). Another rave, rave, rave. I love the slip of this lighter-than-air brush that makes it so easy to apply and the fact that this shade just brings your face to life. #bourjoiscremeblush
CND Solar Oil (Pinkie size). This nutritious nail oil is something of a legend; I can’t count the number of nail artists who have recommended it and I keep a big bottle of it by my bed. With regular use it will give you strong, flexible, nourished nails and easy to maintain cuticles. #lovesolaroil
Melvita Orange Blossom Floral Water 28ml and Melvita Apicosma Ultra Nourishing Body Balm 15ml. I’ve yet to find something from Melvita I don’t like – it just has beautifully constructed formulas that are gentle and effective. It doesn’t cost the earth (literally – it’s a highly eco-conscious brand) and yet behaves as though it costs twice the price. #beehappybbbeditbox
Benefit Porefessional 7.5ml. Porefessional is no smoke and mirror product… it really does offer a buffer that hides pores under foundation. It’s a perfecting product and that’s exactly what it does – perfect the skin.
Philosophy Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser for Face & Eyes 30ml. A new discovery for me that I’m absolutely hooked on. It gives a beautiful wet cleanse that feels somewhere between a wash and an oil. There’s no doubt that my skin feels completely clean, but importantly, not stripped after use.
Elemis Tri Enzyme Resurfacing Gel Mask 15ml. This was the first enzyme exfoliating mask I ever tried and I turn to it regularly for a proper skin pep. Instead of harsh grains, Tri Enzyme uses enzymes to get rid of old, dead skin cells that can make skin look dull. You can feel it tingle as it works, and afterwards, skin is simply silky. #trienzymegelmask
Trilogy Rosehip Face Oil (20ml) I’m a big fan of facial oils and Rosehip is something of a modern legend in its ability to soften and smooth the skin overnight. It’s a light, pliable oil that blends quickly into the skin (I sneak any residue onto my hands) and you will both see and feel the benefit.
NEOM Complete Bliss Moroccan Blush Rose Handcream (Travel Size, 50ml). Lovely NEOM. A big blogger favourite, NEOM products are soothing and indulgent and their hand cream is no different. It rubs in easily and quickly giving dry hands instant suppleness and hydration.
Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Electrum (full size). Illamasqua has a huge blogger following – bloggers ‘discovered’ Illamasqua and it’s a brand that maintained its fan base by constantly reinventing the beauty rules. There’s nothing not to love about this metallic cream shadow that applies so smoothly.
B. All Lengthening, Defining & Volumising Mascara (full size). B. at Superdrug is such a good value range; the quality is all there and my favourites are B foundations and mascaras which I use on my bottom lashes (extensions up top!).
Jo Loves Pomelo (Sample Size, 2ml). This is a great opportunity to sample what Jo Malone did next! It’s my favourite fragrance in the world and I’m happy every time I wear it. #joloves
Offers: Several brands have special limited time offers for BBB Edit Box customers; from 20% off Elemis to 10% off Benefit and many others in between.

I'll be giving my thoughts on everything in due course.

If you missed out on this box, never fear because Jane is thinking about doing another one at Christmas time, and possibly more. I pinky PROMISE to blog about the next one so you can all have a slice of the action.

Is there anything in here you're interested in? What do you want me to review first?

I must say, if you're a fan of beauty and you're not following British Beauty Blogger you're missing out. Jane blogs and swatches high end and high street products and gives you insider information about the kind of dodgy shenanigans that go on in the beauty world that we would otherwise be unaware of. Also, Jane recently started a Youtube channel which I've been loving because she giggles constantly, and it's infectious. Also, as an older lady myself it's lovely to see an older lady out there representin'. (Oh yes, I went ghetto on you.) I'm a fan, in other words, and you should be too. I subscribe by email so I never miss a blog.

Thanks for reading!
