Shesaid Beauty Box September 2012

Hello! I've had rather a hectic time with work recently so I haven't had much opportunity to post, or much to post about to be perfectly honest! But yesterday my Shesaid beauty box was delivered so I have made some time to show you what I got!



Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel - This sounds interesting! I've heard great things about the Ginvera BB cream, which my best friend absolutely loves, so it's interesting to see other products from the same brand! I like the sound of what this does, a gentle exfoliator that removes blackheads, I'm excited to try it out!

Collection Primed and Ready Smoothing Make-up Primer - Hmm, I'm not too sure how I feel about receiving this. I was never very interested in this product when it first came out and I saw the ad campaigns, it's quite a cheap product, I'm just not sure this is a great product for a beauty box, I'd rather get luxury products and unknown brands. I'll try it out all the same though

Collection Fix Me Up Long Lasting Make-up Fixer - I'm not really happy about getting 2 products from the same brand, aspecially seeing as it's Collection (2000) They're not exactly an unknown brand, I could get these at any Boots or Superdrug and again, not something I was particularly interested in trying when I saw it advertised. I probably wouldn't have minded just being sent the fix spray, but I'm really disappointed that I got 2 things from the same brand, this is not an unknown brand or a luxury sample, unimpressed to say the least.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil - This is a good product for a beauty box, I'm just a little disappointed to see it because I received one in my Glossybox last month! I'm not really too impressed that they're sending out the same products, but if I wasn't a subscriber to Glossybox I would have been over the moon to get this.

Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask - Something I am pleased to see! A brand I hadn't heard of, a product I'm interested in, not a luxury product, but that just makes it even better if I like it after trying it and want to repurchase! It looks cute and says it draws out dirt and impurities from deep in your skin, I wonder what this would be like used with the Ginvera exfoliator??


Popchips Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips - What. On. Earth. Why did I receive a packet of crisps in my "beauty box"? And might I point out, a packet with 7 and a half crisps in it.... I really don't even know what to say about this. I would say this is a rubbish/weird sample blip, but after last month's toothpaste fiasco I'm starting to lose faith to be honest.. A very strange product to receive and it left me a little confused to be honest, what were they thinking?!

Overall this was a disappointing box with a couple of redeeming items, I wasn't happy to be sent 2 things from the same brand, especially as it is such a well known and inexpensive brand, and to be sent a SAMPLE size packet of crisps, well, I don't even know what to say about that. Hopefully the new season will see some more interesting boxes, as I've been very impressed with Shesaid boxes in the past!

What do you think of the items in my box? What did anyone else get sent?

  1. I've been quite curious about trying a beauty box but they seem to be a bit hit and miss so I might just stick to buying things I've read up on. It'd be nice to receive a box full of products every month, though. haha.

    1. yeah definitely, I keep saying I'm going to unsubscribe but the thought that the next box might be a good one is addictive! But I've been disappointed more often than not to be honest, I should probably just look what everyone else gets, see what I like the look of and then just buy it rather than feeling like I've wasted my money on a box of samples I don't want haha!

  3. The crisps do look lovely but it is the most weird thing to get in a beauty box!
