Birchbox February 2019

*AD - PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. Links* The January Birchbox was really quite something...The February 2019 Birchbox is less so, but still not terrible, although there's nothing here that I'm majorly excited about.  Surprise, surprise, it's Valentine's themed and the Birchbox February 2019 box is a collaboration with Not On The High Street (providers of gifts) and is attractively presented in a lovely box with a "Let Love Grow" theme. The Februa[...]

Glossybox February 2019: It’s All About Love

The Glossybox February 2019 (still very cautiously typing and then double-checking that I'm writing "2019" and not still "2018"...) box contains a great selection of goodies in a really lovely and unashamedly cute box, that's all about love, just in time for Valentine's Day. The February 2019 Glossybox contains five products, plus a couple of his 'n' hers extras in the form of perfume samples.  I'm always a bit ranty when it comes to perfu[...]

Look Incredible Deluxe Beauty Box – January 2019

Yup, definitely wrote "January 2018" in the header, I wonder how many more times that will happen...? The Look Incredible Deluxe Beauty Box for January 2019 is another great box, packed with four brilliant make-up items that really are very exciting - this is easily one of the best beauty boxes on the market and I love the fact that they always feature such great brands. It's been a few months since I featured the Look Incredible Deluxe Bea[...]

Birchbox January 2019

The January 2019 Birchbox has arrived with a bang! It's an exciting little collection of goodies with some really appealing products - this is definitely the best Birchbox I've seen for a while. It's designed to lift spirits and help us welcome in the new year, which is achieved with the bright, fun box and great contents. There are six products included in the Birchbox January 2019 contents, with a very good mix across all the usual types,[...]

Birchbox November 2018

The November 2018 Birchbox isn't that great, if I'm too be completely honest.  It's a gorgeous design and I had very high hopes when I saw that it was themed around Disney's The Nutcracker, but actually, there isn't much of a link between the products and the theme, which is a shame and a real missed opportunity. The Birchbox November 2018 box contains five products with a fairly good mix, although all are a bit on the small side.  There[...]

Glossybox November 2018

The November 2018 Glossybox is a really great example of just how fabulous monthly beauty boxes really can be.  The Glossybox November 2018 contents is all about Beauty S.O.S. with five products designed to revive and refresh your beauty routine, plus a handy little extra in the form of a perfume sample. As you can see, it's an impressive selection this month, with two full-sized makeup items that are really, really good.  Alongside that[...]

Birchbox October 2018

The Birchbox October 2018 box is all about winding down, relaxing and getting ready for Autumn, which is very much where I'm at - the Indian Summer we're alleged due can bugger off - bring on the sweater weather and Halloween and brilliant Winter Telly. In the October 2018 Birchbox you get six products, with a fairly good mixm, including a couple of bits of skincare and one make-up product too. I was surprised by how much I like the[...]

Glossybox October 2018 (Halloween Special – Trick Edition)

I love pretty much everything about the Glossybox October 2018, which is a Halloween special and comes in two varieties, Trick or Treat.  I have the Trick edition which is very make-up heavy - I always prefer the make-up heavy boxes so I'm very happy! It's also well worth pointing out that this box is completely cruelty-free, which is awesome. As you can see, the contents of the October 2018 Glossybox is cracking, with four full-sized make-u[...]

Glossybox x Sunday Riley Limited Edition Box

I was so excited when I first heard about the Glossybox and Sunday Riley collaborative box, as I knew it would be something special.  There is something about Sunday Riley that I find fascinating, although I'm not really sure why as I don't think I've ever tried anything from the brand - I think it's just because it has such a fantastic reputation, matched with a very high price point (not that that necessarily suggests the products are any good![...]

Birchbox UK September 2018

The Birchbox UK September 2018 is attractively presented in a mosaic-style box and contains five samples.  There's a good mix, although they're all pretty small, but the lead product is a Benefit Box O'Powder which definitely adds some strength to the contents. Alongside the Benefit blush, there are a couple of skincare products and a couple of hair/body bits too. It's a little underwhelming, although there are definitely a couple of prod[...]

Glossybox UK September 2018

I'm rather late with my beauty box posts this month as I was on holiday for the first couple of weeks, but better late than never at all, especially since the Glossybox UK September 2018 is a great little box that's well worth a post. If you're the type of person who likes to open up a bulging beauty box, then the September 2018 Glossybox will be right up your street, since it's packed full of goodies with a bit of everything - there were d[...]
