She Said Beauty...

Wednesday, 7 March 2012

Yes ladies, I have caved in a subscribed to the latest in beauty boxes - She Said Beauty. She Said Beauty is a monthly subscription box for £9.00 with £2.95 p&p. There are options to buy for 3,6 or 12 months which are sold at discounted prices - I think the 12 month works out at around £7 per box which is really good. Although I can't see myself committing to that length of time it is a good idea if you can afford to pay the £91 upfront now. 

The She Said Beauty box contains 5 luxury beauty samples each month to trial at home from skincare, treatments, face products, makeup and hair care (and tea!). There is the option to cancel at any time and they have a beauty profile on there so you can add your skin type etc!

I was subscribed to GlossyBox but unsubbed after the first one! Realistically I wasn't going to purchase any of the crazy priced samples they provided no matter how much I loved it. For example a £210's just not going to happen. So over the past few months where beauty box demand has increased beyond anything I have sat and watched people's blog posts on the boxes they subscribe to or get sent and I have patiently waited trying to decide which one I want to subscribe to. You see as much as I think that it may be a bit extreme paying for samples (although there are so many full sized items I think this is unfair) I really love the feeling of a little treat and the excitement of not knowing what is coming your way.

Then I heard about She Said Beauty and I decided to take the plunge and I have to say I am really happy with my first box. I thought I would do a quick round up of what I have and then will review items once I have used them.

Orly Mini Manicure - Mini Sample
I received the colour black which to be honest I have seen other colours I would have prefered at this time of year. But then maybe only having a small colour in black is perfect for me!! I haven't tried this brand before but I have heard good things.
Full Size Price - £5.00 5.4ml

Comfort Zone - Good Night Kit - Sample
A night cream with the latest antioxidant in. This is the most expensive item at full size and to be honest that's ok with me! I change creams so much and there are bound to be more samples to fill the void when this is used!
Full Size Price - £52.95 50ml

Premae Face Balm - Full size is 50ml (not sure if that's what I have)
A balm for your face containing silky indian mango butter which moisturises the skin. I love the idea of this, I already use a balm from The Body Shop so this is a welcome addition. 
Full Size - £18.00 50ml

Aveda Smooth Infusion Trio - Sample Sizes
I heard a lot about this brand at an event I went to so really happy to receive samples from them. Although I probably won't repurchase because my boyfriends mum works in the hair industry so I get things through her, I love trying out hair things and with the extra step of the Style Prep Smoother I am really looking forward to using them.
Full Size Shampoo - £15.50 250ml
Full Size Conditioner - £17.50 200ml
Full Size Smoother - £18.50 100ml

Collection 2000 Cream Puff - Full Size
I already own two of these and somehow I got sent a colour that I don't have - AMAZED. I did sneak a peak when there was a delay in receiving my box and I was dreading getting the same colour. I got sent the colour Angel Delight which is a nude (I have cotton candy and fairy cake). I love love love these so oober happy to get one!
Full Size - £2.99 5ml

BONUS: Jing Flowering Tea - One "teabag"
Can't wait to see this open up in the water - from what I have seen it looks amazing! Although I can't see me straying from my PG Tips it is a nice treat!
Full Size - £9.00

Overall I love this box and I'm really looking forward to see the next She Said Beauty box, sign up here

  1. I didnt even know this beauty box existed! I was considering unsubscribing from glossybox but the "special edition" and "mystery" boxes kept me hanging on.

    Holli x

    1. I read about it on twitter - I saw the harrods box but even then it didn't "grab me" these are more realistic things that I would buy x

  2. We got the same things! :) Except I got Cotton Candy in the Collection 2000 things. I haven't had a chance to try out anything except the Orly duo, but those were great! I think SSB is off to a good start, I hope they keep it up!

  3. This is the first review I've seen on this box, it looks great. Its so nice to see 'normal' brands like Collection 2000 in a beauty box! xx

  4. I have just signed up for a beauty box subscription too but mine is through Carmine. I love my first one and also featured it on my blog - take a look if you're hooked and looking for more goodies through the post. I have been looking at this SheSaid option and if I decide to go ahead with it then I will go through your link. Thanks for the post, it's really informative.

  5. Wow, I was considering this box when I first heard about it and I have to say they've done pretty well with the first one. I'm genuinely impressed with all its contents!
