A Beautiful World Spring-Summer 14 Beauty Box

A Beautiful World is a UK website that specialises in organic and natural beauty products.  At the beginning of May they released a limited edition Spring/Summer beauty box priced at £20.00.  

Delivery is free with orders over £25.00 so I also bought a konjac sponge which I have previously reviewed here.
Delivery is very fast, the box arrived the day after I placed the order.  It was very well packaged, the products are in the red box which has a magnetic closure, the box was in the  white bag and it's was all packaged in a cardboard box to stop it getting damaged in transit.

You don't know what products are in the box, but when placing the order it does tell you a few of the brands that will be featured.  I like the surprise element!
Full size 60ml MuLondon White Chocolate Elbow, Knee and Heel Cream
Trial size dahliana Overnight Fruit Lift Creme
Trial size 10ml The Body Deli Radiance Enzyme Peel - check out the cute spoon!
Trial size Bee Yummy Skinfood
Trial size Chocolate Sun Cocoa Glow (Fake Tan)
Rose and Chamomile White Tea
Sample size marble & milkweed Spring Tonic Serum
Naisture Collagen Sheet Mask
1 x Tili Bag
Also included are product/brand cards and a code for 20% off the website.

I am really pleased with this box, lots of brands I have not tried before and some very interesting products.  I am especially looking forward to trying the white chocolate cream, the cocoa glow and the skinfood.

You can find all the products on their website here.

Did you manage to get your hands on this box?  I will definitely be adding my name to the waiting list for the Autumn/Winter box released later on this year.

Poundworld Haul

Hi All! Wow it feels like ages ago since I last wrote a blog post! I've returned to work after my maternity leave so I'm just trying to find the balance between working, looking after my boys and blogging!

I picked up these fab bargains in my local Pound World last week.
Maybelline Baby Lips.  I picked up one of each, I know these have been around for a while now but I have not tried them and couldn't resist for £1 each.
The outside packaging was not all in English so I wasn't quite sure which scents I was buying but the balms themselves have the names on in English.  I got Anti-Oxidant Berry, Cherry Velvet and Mango Pie.  These are all colourless so fab to pop under any drying lipsticks.  They all contain SPF20 so I'll be taking these on my hols.

These colourless balms retail for around £2.80 each on Amazon.

I also picked up these two Revlon Baby Sticks for Lips & Cheeks.

I got shades Sunset and Tahitian.  I found these for £3.29 each on Amazon.

My local Pound World is a bit hit and miss but sometimes it has some fab bargains like these pretties! What's the best thing you have bought from a pound shop?
