Another beauty box has arrived and can be found under the name She Said Beauty. I have no idea whether it’s any good, but it seems reasonably priced and the packaging is quite funky. There’s something about turquoise and bright pink; they’re such clashing colours but they just look so good together! I went through a phase where I was determined to make a top using those two colours, the only obstacle being that I can’t sew.
She Said Beauty are trying to create a more community-like feel with their boxes and I believe they’re hoping that people will review the products received in their boxes on the site. I’m not too sure if there will be an incentive for this input or not, but it’ll be interesting to see if this aspect of it takes off.
What is a bit different about this box is that there are quite a few beauty pros involved. It’s unclear how involved they actually are so I don’t know whether the pros will have an influence on the boxes or are just there to write about things that are relevant to the boxes, or indeed if they’re just there to write about beauty related topics, but they’ve got some good names on board including Louise Woollam from Get Lippie.
There’s an introductory 25% off offer at the moment, meaning that the first box will cost £9.70 including p+p. The normal price will be £11.95 including p+p which isn’t the cheapest on the market, but isn’t the most expensive either. Whether this is good value or not will of course depend on the quality of the samples included. The boxes will include five samples and more information is available here.
