Two weeks ago , I was sat minding my own business on Twitter when I seen that Derma v10 were looking for beauty bloggers to review their new products .
Of course I retweeted their tweet and said I would love to and look what turned up on my front door last week.
Inside the box , there were 5 products, 1 of which I had already tried previously, but more on that later, let us take a look at the contents.
The great thing about this box is that it is not filled with all the same area of body products, we have skin, hair and makeup items and I for one was quite impressed.
What you got inside -
Cocoa Body Butter-
So the first thing I noticed was the Cocoa Body butter in huge tub of 220ml. I have to agree this is one of my previous purchases that I bought quite some time ago , in fact I bought one of these tubs from Poundland last year, so this is not a newbie for me.
What they say about their body butter-

''NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS''
I admitted that I had already tried this product before, but this time the formula has been changed and I am loving it.
Previously the cream was thin and whitish in colour, there was also no scent to it but this time it is the total opposite.
This cream has a beautiful orange tone shade to it, the cream is very thick , even for my thirsty skin and the aroma of that lushious cocoa floats out of the tub like melted chocolate .
On the skin , the cream lays like a barrier of cold butter but once rubbed into the body, the cream soaks in well and in fact leaves a cool mintish tingling feeling, but I have no idea why that is as their is no menthol ingredients inside the product.
My skin does not feel soft , it feels clean instead and there is no greasy residue left over once soaked in.
I absolutely love the chocolate smell that is left over and I find myself keep opening the tub just to have a whiff of its glory.
For me this is a nice cream, thick which I love, but to be honest it is not moisturising enough and the feeling I have after using it is as if I have used a cleanser , not a moisturiser.
Chalk It up-
We actually tried these out first, we absolutely loved them and you can read my review on them here.
The colours are vibrant but if you are looking for a pastel shade then these also work too.
It says to use them dry or wet but I would say wet is the best way to get the result . We used a spray bottle to spray the end of the chalks then used the chalks as a pencil to draw the colour onto the hair.
What they say about their Hair chalks-

''Not been tested on animals''
Yes , you may have seen this one to in the Pound shop, its a bargain so why not , but is it totally worth the time in trying it?
Being a mum , I know all about stretch marks and to be honest I have no interest in removing them. Some may think they look ugly but I see them as my babies map into the world and I for one think they belong to me, they are apart of me and I love them like they are my children.
There are other stretch marks which I know are not part of giving birth though and those are the ones that are spreading down my top thigh and my hip and I do somehow feel like they get me down a little more than they should.
Over the past week I have been using the Rescue oil, maybe the stretch marks are already embedded into my skin, but they refuse to go.
I have noticed that the oil has given my skin a hydration which has removed all blemishes that have began to grow with my ageing skin and I do feel if Ii continue to use it the scars will reduce over a few more weeks, but when you are paying only £1 compared to some of the leading brands rescue oils ridiculous prices buying a couple of these bottles in bulk would be my greatest tip .
The oil it self is typical of its texture and scent and is very pleasant. I enjoy how it leaves my skin feeling after application .
The skin is left feeling ultimately nourished, moisturised and even though it is an oil , I do not feel like I have been greased up as it soaks into my skin very well .
I would most definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in reducing scars, stretch marks or even hydrating the skin to moisturise and reduce blemishes or dry areas .
This truly is a remarkable product , you should definitely give it a try.

''Paraben free and not tested on animals''
I have to begin with the one thing I struggle with brands and their creams and that is the fact that usually brands make creams that seem to be different texture to suit different needs and I have found with all the creams I have tried with Derma V10 hold that one need for me which is thickness.
The multi radiance cream has a lovely scent and it smells like a perfume I would actually buy if available from them.
The cream is very thick in texture but that does not obtain itself from being light on the skin and I actually love how this feels .
My skin is left feeling so soft and I myself can see a clear difference with only one use although the camera can not quite pick it up for you to see (just an excuse for you to go try it yourself ).
The radiance really is the right word to be in this product , I wish my camera picked it up sorry.
I see a healthy glowing look in my skin, not greasy at all . It is as if my skin has been instantly replenished and reborn, I truly love this product and along with the Rescue oil , they will be a big part of my new regime for sure.
You should definitely give this a try , I am amazed by what it has done to my skin.
Last but not least there was a lovely surprise in the box and that was their mascara and eyeliner.
Yes I am admitting to the fact , I did not even know they had a makeup line and am very intrigued to share this with you.
I received the mascara in black and the shape of the tube is like a silver nipped tip bullet which gives it a luxurious look to it.
The wand is fantastic, I hate nothing more than a fibre brush tip where the bristles fall out and believe me I have had so many that have ended up making more a mess of my lashes than doing any good. This mascara has a lovely rubber brush and is bendable enough to get into those small inner lash areas.
I gave this little beauty a go straight away , and I actually loved how it attached to my every lash enhancing the length and shape of my lashes.
Conclusion of Derma V10-
So I have tried out all of the wonderful products in the box and I for one have been pleasantly surprised by the fantastic results each product has given me.
The Cocoa cream wowed me with its amazing chocolate cocoa scent but did not moisturise enough whereas the radiance cream pleased me by making my skin look reborn and revitalised.
The hair chalks were fun and a fantastic creative idea for my children who thoroughly enjoyed the easy experience of hair colouring without the toxic chemicals or worry of ruining their hair.
I would most definitely go out and buy in multi packs the Rescue oil and the Radiance cream due to the amazing results in which they left my skin looking even after one use and as for the mascara , well I am always going to say yes to a a mascara that lengthens my very stubby lashes instantly.
I would like to thank Derma V10 for sending me the box of products and also giving me the opportunity to find some new affordable body care items which have now been added to my daily regime as for me the Rescue oil and the radiance cream are the two things for me which everyone should be owning .
