The British Beauty Blogger Edit || Clinique

Whenever Jane Cunningham mentions that she's bringing out another The British Beauty Blogger Edit, the entire beauty blogging world goes crazy! This results in the box selling out in record time albeit having a limited number of boxes in the first place. Instead of having a mixture of her ultimate products, she's teamed up with Clinique to bring us her edit of products she loves and products that she would recommend to everyone. I had read about what it contained a few days before the official release but it was only until I saw that a few friends on twitter had purchased one that I decided to bite the bullet and buy one for myself. Featuring five classic, travel size products as well as two full sized and priced at only £18.50, it's easy to see why it sold out so quickly.

The first product to catch my eye is the full size High Impact Mascara (£17.50) which I've already tried a sample of previously. This promises to give incredible volume and give the blackest of lashes whilst adding length and definition which I do stand by. I prefer it more when it's just been opened as I find then when it starts to dry out, it doesn't have quite the same result.

I'm a huge skincare junkie so seeing a deluxe sized Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (£34) included definitely got me excited especially after considering purchasing it for the longest time! It's a gel cream consistency that plumps up skin with hydration that lasts all day with immediate results. It's one of those products that you can use in all different situations - as a skin pick me up, as an overnight hydrating mask, as a cream, as a makeup refresher. 

Another skincare addition that I've been wanting to try for the longest time is the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion+ (£30) which has been long hailed as one of the moisturisers to have on hand. Unlike the original, this new updated version helps keep moisture locked in whilst strengthening the skin's own moisture barrier. The good thing about this is that is sinks in very fast and leaves the skin feeling immediately silkier with a hydrated feel that will last all day.

I love nothing more than taking off a days worth of makeup so having a travel sized Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips (£17) on hand for when stubborn mascara will not budge is a welcome addition. Unlike most makeup removers, this is targeted specifically for lids, lashes and lips and it works by loostening stubborn mascara's grips on the lashes so that you can gently sweep it away. As by the end of the day any lip colour is already long gone, I will be using this only for my eye makeup.

A product that I'm a little wary of using is the Liquid Facial Soap Mild (£16) which despite it being targeted as a cleanser, the name of the product puts me off. This is first step of the infamous 3-Step regime and it comes in a mild, non irritating formula to cleanse the skin ready for the next step.

The other full sized addition is a Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm in Plumped Up Pink (£17) which is half way between both a lipstick and a lipgloss. Infused with shea butter, mango seed butter and jojoba seed oil, this highly moisturising lip colour helps protect and pamper lips with immediate and long-lasting moisturisation without skipping out on the colour payoff.

The last product included in the box is a miniature Happy Perfume (£39 for 50ml) which is the perfect handbag size for a night out. Infused with ruby red grapefruit, boysenberry bush flower and hawaiian wedding flower; this truly makes it one sparkling floral, citrus burst fragrance.
