It's not very often that I buy particular beauty boxes based on their collaboration unless it's products that I would generally use. When I saw that Latest In Beauty had teamed up with Heart FM to bring out the Heart FM Beauty Essentials Box, I couldn't check out fast enough! Boasting an incredible thirteen products of which three are full size with the rest generous sample sizes, I'm surprised that they could even fit the lid on with everything packaged up inside. There's a good mix of brands and products so without futher ado, let's delve into the contents..
The star product by far is a full size Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Varnish in Hyde Park Palace (£14) which is a pale, stoney grey which would look good all year round but I'll be saving it exclusively to start wearing in Autumn. The next star product in my books is a full size Wild About Beauty Eyeshadow in Becca (£13) which is a beautiful coppery bronze shade which would look good sweeped all across the eyelid or in a bronzey smokey eye. Another makeup addition is two satchets of bareMinerals Complexion Rescue (£26) which is their new tinted hydrating gel cream. Two shades were included; Vanilla and Natural and I reckon Vanilla looks like a perfect match for me.
Moving onto skincare and included is a travel sized Philosophy Purity Cleanser (£28.50) which I'll looking forward to trying out despite it's mixed reviews. They've also thrown in a full size Amie Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser (£4.95) which is both skin friendly and made from natural extracts without costing the earth. I'm glad to see a sample of Vichy Idealia Life Serum (£31) included as I have quite a few of these now to give it a good trial run! This helps make your skin look more radiant and fresh with a more even skin tone so I'm excited to see how this compares to Lancome Visionnaire which costs the earth.
I've tried the Balance Me Radiance Face Mask (£18) before and I enjoyed it quite a lot so I'm glad to have another sample of this in my life. It's one of those masks with exfoliating beads that you leave on for 10 minutes and then wipe off which helps to exfoliate the skin to reveal brighter, more radiant skin. Heart FM have truly thought of everything as they've also included a generous sample of Green People Sun Lotion SPF15 with Tan Accelerator (£14.30) which is ideal for us Brits as we don't see enough sun. I love a good hand cream so the Le Couvent des Minimes Cloisters Hand Cream (£3) is a welcome addition! It's rose and berry scented so I'm hoping that will smell good enough to eat.
I never seem to have enough travel sized shampoos and conditioners unless you count satchets so the Dove Youthful Vitality Duo (£5.99 each) will definitely be coming with me on my next trip away! I haven't had anything about Kneipp Herbal Bath Back Comfort Devils Claw (£9.95) before but it definitely intrigues me as it's meant to be soothing and relaxing for the back, shoulders and neck. I'm not exactly sure of when I'll be able to put the Skyn Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels (£25 for 8 packs) to good use as I don't suffer with puffy eyes but I'm sure that these will be very soothing on the eye area. Lastly, Heart FM have thrown in a cute heart shaped face cloth that expands in water which as a kid, I always loved watching.
As this box is priced at £15 + P+P and is worth over £70, it's incredibly good value and will be getting a lot of love from me!
