I’m usually one of the last people to receive the beauty boxes, so consequently, when I get the notification that one of the four I’m subscribed to is on its way, I start getting my Google on to try and find out what everyone has received. I don’t mind the lack of surprise, I’d prefer to instead find out what to expect.
However – and this is a big BUT – I am a beauty blogger and I get sent a lot of things to review which are suited to my individual requirements, mainly because I wouldn’t agree to review them if they weren’t. Therefore, as I regularly receive bits and bobs to try out from my considerably overworked postman (bless him), the novelty of receiving a box full of samples that are a bit hit and miss is going to be a lot less fulfilling than it would be to other people. I’m not going to be able to make the best of what I’ve been sent as the time I do get for trying out beauty bits will be consumed with trying out the review samples I’m sent. Therefore, it’s not realistic for me to give my opinion on beauty boxes in general as I don’t think it’s fair; both to the lovely readers of this blog and to the beauty box creators.
I wanted to write this post just in case anyone was wondering why I no longer posted about the contents of my beauty boxes. Although to be honest, there are sooooo many other beauty bloggers who are still regularly keeping everyone updated on what’s happening in the beauty box world that I very much doubt my posts will be missed!
