Beauty Boxes

Birchbox January 2018

Welcome to the first beauty box post of 2018, the Birchbox January 2018 review! Let's see how many times I accidentally write "2017" today.  The Birchbox January 2018 is a collaboration with British stationery brand Ohh Deer, resulting in a very pretty box - you can't beat a Birchbox drawer box can you? I love how collectable they are. The Birchbox January 2018 contents is pretty decent, with a good mix of make-up and skincare.  There are[...]

Birchbox December 2017 (Birchbox x Matthew Williamson)

I think it's safe to say that the Birchbox December 2017 box is one of the prettiest I've ever seen - what an absolute stunner! The Birchbox December 2017 contents focuses on Life's Little Treasures, so we're getting five products that include three full-sized bits. There's a relatively good mix across all the genres with a couple of make-up bits, some skincare, body care and hair care.  Unfortunately, there isn't a lot to get excited abou[...]

Glossybox December 2017

They're ending the year with a bang, thanks to the fantastic Glossybox December 2017 contents, which features five full-sized, brilliant products, all of which I'm very excited to try, housed in a beautifully designed box by Dusty Boy. The December 2017 Glossybox is themed around getting you party ready (etc, etc) so it's make-up heavy, with three make-up products, two bits of skincare and a yummy bit of chocolate too.  I normally break do[...]

QVC TiLi November Box – First Look

The TiLi brand from QVC has been doing incredibly well, and quite rightly so, considering it focuses on pulling all the great brands on offer at QVC Beauty and delivering them via their beauty boxes.  I recently posted about the amazing TiLi Advent Calendar which has been crazily popular - they got new stock yesterday and it was literally gone in minutes - but if you still want in on the TiLi joy, I have good news for you: the November TiLi box i[...]

Glossybox November 2017

I'm rather behind with my Glossybox post this month, but I still wanted to share it as it's a pretty decent box and there's still time to get involved.  The Glossybox November 2017 contains five products, with all but one being full-sized. There's a great mix this month, with a few make-up bits, a skincare item and a body care item, so something for everyone, plus the contents appear well picked, making this a box that feels like good valu[...]

Birchbox November 2017 (Vogue Edition)

When I first heard of the Birchbox x Vogue box for November, I was extremely excited, as how could it not be a good one? The products are all featured in the Vogue 100 Beauty Hall of Fame so obviously I was expecting some corkers.  I would describe the November 2017 Birchbox as solid: nothing too overly exciting but nothing too terrible either. As you can see, you get five products, all of which are minis other than the Birchbox Brush Clea[...]

LookFantastic x Omorovicza Limited Edition Beauty Box #LFxOmorovicza

You don't have to search too hard on my blog to find a rave review of an Omorovicza product, as it's such a great skincare brand that features in my routine pretty much daily; they do amazing cleansers, masks, serums and I love everything about them.  However, they are an extremely luxurious brand with a price tag to match, and not everyone can justify such a large expenditure on skincare. Thankfully, there's a LookFantastic x Omorovicza Beauty B[...]

Birchbox October 2017 – CoppaFeel Edition

The Birchbox October 2017 is a brilliant box with great products and a lovely design, as well as a purposeful message.  It's a collaboration with CoppaFeel - the charity with the aim to help us detect breast cancer - so the box contains some handy bits and bobs to advise on how to check our breasts as well as products that work within the theme. There are five products in the October 2017 Birchbox contents spanning a good mix, with two ful[...]

Powder x NARS Beauty Drawer

Do you remember when beauty boxes were so rare and they seemed so innovative and exciting? Now they are absolutely everywhere with collaborations happening constantly, but occasionally, there'll be one that really is exciting, such as this Powder x NARS Beauty Drawer.   Later this week (Wednesday 13th September) the Powder x NARS Beauty Drawer will launch, so here's a look a what's included: Liquid Bronzer in Laguna The Multiple in Copaca[...]

Glossybox September 2017

Glossybox have had a couple of very strong months, so there was inevitably going to be a weaker month as it's virtually impossible to maintain such extremely high levels; unfortunately what goes up, must come down.  I'm writing this as if the Glossybox September 2017 contents is rubbish, which definitely isn't the case, it's just a little less exciting than last month. The Glossybox September 2017 has a strong skincare focus with a with a[...]
