Latest In Beauty X Heart FM Beauty Essentials Box

As you all know, I adore LIB Boxes and loved the look of this one to tide me through until the next Glamour Summer Edit box from LIB. I haven't tried anything in this box apart from the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue so it seemed like a good idea to give it a go.

First up we have the Amie Morning Light Hydrating Moisturiser- this is designed for all day moisture and keep skin nourished, soft and supple. I will mostly likely use this before I apply my makeup in the morning- or just this on it's own on a no makeup day.

Balance Me Radiance Face Mask- leave this on for 5 minutes to reveal glowing, bright skin thats been rejuvenated- a 5 minute miracle. This is the kind of thing that I would put on whilst in the bath on a Sunday night to relax. This is a great 30ml sample size so great for travel.

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels- These two patches de-puff and brighten your under eye area in under 10 minutes. The transdermal (oh-er) gel patch infuses the eye area with highly potent actives and Icelandic glacial water to firm. These would be good after a heavy night out- or for flights to revive you before getting of the plane.

Philosophy Purity 3 in 1 Cleanser- I have never tried any Philosophy products so can't wait to see what all of the hype is about. This cleanses, tones and hydrates- removing all face and eye makeup. A perfect product for when you can't be bothered with a full skin routine *guilty*

And a little Heart flannel that expands when you soak it in water. I prefer using flannels / wash cloths to muslin cloths as I find they retain the heat for longer- muslin cloths go stone cold within 30 seconds and you feel like you're washing you face with a slimy wet fish. Ugh. 

I first discovered Kneipp in a LIB box from British Beauty Blogger and fell in love. My whole family adores the range with the Deep Sleep Bath Salts being firm favourites. This is the new Back Comfort Herbal Bath containing Devil's Claw for which is known for its 'magical' anti-inflammatory properties. As a dental nurse that's always hunched over like Quasimodo, I do suffer from back aches and pains (that and the fact I'm quite large in the chesticle area!) so I can't wait to give this a go.

Green People SPF 15 Sun Lotion- I'm going on holiday in July so this will prove pretty handy. It's also 82% Organic and is naturally derived from Inositiol which speeds up the body's ability to tan!

Vichia Idealia Life Serum- This is a dinky sample of serum to even out skin tone, tighten pores and creates a youthful healthy glow. This is the kind of sample I would take on holiday to use up. I save all samples for holiday so I don't have to worry about liquid limits on the flight.

Le Couvent des Minimes Cloisters Hand Cream- This has a sweet floral scent which I'm not really a fan of so this will be winging it's way to my mum. I'm not really a big hand cream wearer as I can't stand the tacky and greasy feeling.

Dove Youthful Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner- This smells divine, seriously divine. I imagine myself having a Herbal Essences moment when using this in the shower. Coconut oil is one of the ingredients to add nourishment, vitality and increase elasticity. These are 50ml samples sizes too so these will definitely be thrown in when packing for my holiday.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue- I was not a fan of this and you can catch my full review here. 

Wild About Beauty Eyeshadow in 'Becca' this is beautiful golden biscuit colour that will look amazing with a tan, and or people with blue eyes. I have brown eyes but would still wear this- really wearable colour and great that you don't have to lug a big palette around.

Last but not least is Nails Inc Gel Effect in 'Hyde Park Place'- This is beautiful blue grey and it's not a colour I would EVER wear but I tried it on and loved it. I used a Butter London Base and Top Coat, 2 coats of this and an Orly underbase (ya know the ones that dry out the nail before a base coat to make it last longer- yeah that!). I wore it for 48 hours and it just chipped the thumbs slightly so nothing too bad. This again would look fab with a tan in summer.

What did you think to the LIB Heart Box? Will you be checking it out?

You can buy it now here for £15 and the contents are worth a whopping £70.
