I cannot believe how fast this year has flown The British Beauty Box is celebrating their 1st birthday and I am over the moon. If you have been reading my blog this past year, you will know that this is the only beauty box I currently feature because I truly believe in the brands and the value of each box.

This months box is the 1st Birthday Box and is worth over £230.00 which is just incredible! This box contains 7 yes 7 full sized products from British Brands that you know and love plus some additional freebies!

Included in the 1st Birthday British Beauty Box are the following products:

Ark Skincare advanced Lip Action Plumping Lip Cream 15ml £32.00

Ark Skincare Plumping Lip Cream

Eagle eyed readers of mine will know that I have been enjoying this brand since Spring this year. More recently I was able to visit this brand in Hasslemere and have a great chat with the team about their ethos and products. I can tell you, this lip product offers a beautiful hydration to the lips as well as helping those fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth appear plumper and smoother. Wonderful for this time of year and colder months.

Sienna-X The Miracle Mask 50ml £36.00

The Miracle Mask Sienna-x

I was super excited to test out this soon-to-be-launched face mask from Sienna-X. Having not tried anything from the brand before a Hydrating manuka mask was just what my dehdrayed skin craved and i was not dissapointed. The mask contains 10% manuka honey and is Dermatologically tested,Suitable for sensitive skin,Clinically proven, Vegetarian, Cruelty free, 95% natural and suitable for AM & PM use. I love that this is a mask that hydrates and treats the skin within as little as 10 minutes or, if like me, you can apply a thin layer and leave it on over night for the skin to soak it in. If you have a blemished skin, this really calms it down with its anti-inflammatory properies and feels beautifully cooling and surprisingly not sticky on the face. This leaves my skin feeling super soft and looking fresh and bright. A great addition to the box.

Rodial Suede Lips Power Play £22.00

The Miracle Mask Sienna-x

I was super excited to discover make up in this seasons box. If you know me, you will know that my favourite lipstick colour is red and this one from Rodial looks lovely.

Suede lips Rodail

A classic blue red, this product glides effortlessly over the lips, thanks to the inclusion of Vitamin E and with the ease of a crayon applicator, you can easily draw in your lip line first then fill in the colour. Very Christmassy!

Emma Hardie Midas Touch Face Serum Duo £69.00

Oh my goodness this product is like actual magic! Not only do you get two, but they smell absolutely beautiful and work amazingly well on smoothing out fine line and wrinkles. This serum is silky soft to the touch and leaves the skin glowing! I am so impressed by this serum and cannot believe i have never tried it before. It also works wonderfully as a primer before make up as it fills in the pores and adds a beautiful luminosity to the skin. Loaded with Hyaluronic Acid, Moringa Seed Oil and Pepper Fruit Extract the skin is left feeling hydrated all day long. Plant stem cells help prtoect the skin against external agressor and leave the skin looking a feeling fresh and relaxed. I love the pen style applicatore, which means you will not use too much product. A new favourite!

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer 25ml £19.00

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

I think we all know how much of a fan I am of this iconic product, it really has changed my hair. This treatment deep conditions your hair leaving it soft, shiny and manageable. For me it leaves my naturally blonde hair incredibly soft and shiny and always so full of life. Just search this product online and read the reviews because it really can change your hair.

Jo Hansford Illuminoil 15ml £22.00

Jo Hansford illuminoil

This cute little bottle of product comes in super handy and don’t let the size full you because it lasts forever! This unique blend of oils such as Pomegranate, Argan, Karanja and Jojoba leaves the hair beautifully glossy and hydrated, It can be used on wet or dry hair to stop fly-away’s, or add shine and you can even leave it on for 10 minutes as an intensive conditioning treatment. Love this!

I have really been enjoying using this brand the past year thanks to The British Beauty Box. This award winning mask is said to promote sleep thanks to the inclusion of Lavender. It also hydrates and leaves the skin feeling bright and rested.

Beautifully packaged in a sturdy gift box containing a gift bag and tissue paper, in-case you wish to gift some of your goodies, the 1st Birthday box really is fantastic and i have loved trying out this huge selection of goodies!

    I haven’t subscribed to a beauty box in ages. They all got to be the same – much ado about nothing. The one I really loved was Carmine (which was awhile ago!), but they were bought by I forget who and that was the end of them.
