Last month saw the arrival of the first ever Cohorted Beauty Box, and boy did it impress. If you’re unfamiliar, Cohorted is a beauty site where you can find great deals on high end beauty products, so considering the site is all about beauty, it was only a matter of time before they launched their very own beauty box.
The Cohorted Beauty Box contains mostly full-sized, high end products from brands like Hourglass, Urban Decay, bareMinerals, Bobbi Brown and Lancome and just 300 boxes are created. As the boxes retail for £19.99 plus P&P with product value at up to four times that, it’s safe to assume these boxes sell out insanely fast. To give you an idea, the box I’m reviewing is the March box, but the April box has already gone on pre-order and sold out. Therefore, if you want one of these bad boys you’ll need to move extremely quickly.
Let’s have a look at the contents of the March 2015 Cohorted Beauty Box, shall we? There are four items included, three of which are full-sized. The first is the bareMinerals Pure Transformation Night Treatment in Light, which is a powder night product that’s designed to be an overall skin improver which reduces pore size and addresses skin tone and texture issues. This is full sized and I’ve been fascinated by this for quite some time, so I’m looking forward to giving it a go. Next is the Sleek Highlighting Palette which contains four cream highlighters in a really well presented palette. The last full-sized item is the Too Faced Exotic Color Eyeshadow in Copper Peony, which is a lovely, warm bronze shade that I’ll definitely use as it’s the sort of colour that works really well with blue eyes. The final sample is a reasonably decent sized sample of the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara which I’ve yet to try, so I’ll definitely give this a go. The box value comes in at just under £75, which is pretty impressive.
Another thing worth mentioning is that a small number of boxes each month will contain a little something extra; last month the extra item was the Hourglass Ambient Lights palette and this month is the newest Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette – as I’m sure you’ll agree, both amazing extras that I would be thrilled to find. I can’t imagine anyone having a bad word to say about the Cohorted beauty boxes as they tick all the right (ahem) boxes – they contain mostly full-sized, luxury items, they’re reasonably priced and they’re very exciting, even for a beauty blogger like me who’s fortunate enough to be sent quite a few things, I was extremely excited about the Cohorted Beauty Box so I really hope they consider expanding their production to include more as it’s such a shame that clearly many are missing out.

The hourglass ambient lights palette is an extra?! That brand is really expensive isnt it? Nice stuff. Ive come across the name of the site on twitter but npt actually been on it. Looks like some good stuff. Is it subscription? From what you said it looks like you can order 1 month only. Is it a surprise what you get in the box? This is the same sophie as before btw!
Sorry lovely, I realise I haven’t phrased it very well but no it isn’t subscription as they do such limited quantities, so it’s first come, first served. The extras are amazing aren’t they?? I couldn’t believe that! I had everything crossed for my box, but alas, it wasn’t there 🙂 xx

Hi – This sounds like a great box! I wish they had them in the U.S. Enjoy yours!
Fantastic isn’t it? Fingers crossed they head over to the states soon! xx

These boxes sound amazing, and totally passed me by! Just had a browse on the website, can you sign up for an email alert when they become available or is it just a luck think when they announce them?
That’s a really good point and I did briefly look into it but didn’t manage to find an answer – I’ll e-mail their PR and see what they say xx
I have just signed up for their newsletter- some fabulous brands in there.
I can’t wait to see what’s in next month’s box xx
Me too…. I am so rubbish at this no shopping lark!!!!
Ha ha 😀 How could you not be swayed by a box like this though?! xx
Focusing on the savings I make by purchasing….. I mean look at it. What’s not to love? Xx
People are really struggling to get in there quickly enough, apparently – so you’re going to need to move very quickly when the next box launches xx
