Glossybox Beauty Box August 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

It’s Glossybox’s Birthday! Happy Birthday Glossybox! I hope there’s many more exciting and successful years to come. What an amazing theme with an immense potential and what an amazingly beautiful box design. This could have been the month that Glossybox celebrates its existence and thanks it’s subscribers but unfortunately, the contents of the box were underwhelming. This month’s box contained 5 products, as always. Let’s have a look at the products in more detail. These are short reviews that cover firstRead more

Battle of the Beauty Boxes – Conclusions from the 2017 unboxing and reviews on Cohorted, Glossybox, Look Fantastic and Birchbox!

One of the most common questions that come my way is: “Which beauty box should I get?”. I’ve previously written a quick decision guide on “Which Subscription Beauty Box is right for you?” but now that the year has ended, I though it’s a good opportunity to compare them all to each other! To do this, I am only taking into consideration the last 9 months of the year, from April to December 2017, instead of the entire year, becauseRead more

Cohorted Beauty Box June 2017 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Cohorted June 2017 came with a little drama. This month’s box contained only 4 products instead of the usual 5 or 6 and I was sent the wrong magazine, May instead of June. I did contact them asking them to send me the right one and in their defence they did immediately send me the June magazine, I received it within 3 days of contacting them. However, the fact that the box had only 4 products did feel a littleRead more

Glossybox June 2017 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Glossybox June 2017 was dedicated to a laid-back summer look with a specific “picnicking” theme. The box was as always the standard pink Glossybox and other than the expected products there was also a small booklet with an extract from “Wilde Like Me”, a book coming soon by blogger Louise Pentland.  It’s a very nice little addition, something small to have when you are out in the sun to read and see if you like this book or author enough to purchase theRead more

Birchbox June 2017 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Birchbox June 2017 was all about making the transition into summer. The theme was “Daytripping”, celebrating holiday destinations within the UK. There was no box this month but rather a Birchbox bag which was apparently inspired from the Brighton beach. There were two colour choices for the bag that Birchbox members could have chosen between, or kept it a surprise if you fancied. I went for the more all-around the year coloured one, turquoise with purple, although I must admitRead more

Cohorted Beauty Box May 2017 – Unboxing and Product Reviews and an Urban Decay mystery

Last box for May 2017! As I mentioned before, I open one box a week so that I can give you full product reviews rather than first impressions and so Cohorted is the one box that falls into the first week of the next month. This works well, as this is the only subscription beauty box that is pre-order and so you wouldn’t be able to get your hands on this, you would have to wait for next month’s box.Read more

Look Fantastic May 2017 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

May’s Look Fantastic Subscription Beauty Box carried a “get the glow” theme. The theme is very exciting indeed as summer is coming up and it’s definitely the right time of the year for a little make up and skin care glow. This month’s quote inside the box was “The glow and energy of a healthy woman is the ultimate beauty, the only beauty that will last”. Couldn’t agree more! The box design is absolutely gorgeous. It is all shades of pinkRead more

Glossybox May 2017 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Glossybox May 2017 was dedicated to essential beauty products with a “the good basics” theme. The design of the box was as always the standard pink Glossybox but that’s ok, these boxes still make amazing storage and gifting options. This month’s box also included a £50 Mockberg voucher which is, surprisingly, valid until April 2018! Although £50 might sound a lot, Mockberg watches are around £150 (the cheapest) so still a reasonable amount to pay if you want to useRead more
