She Said Beauty May 2012

I had an early wake up this morning as my May She Said Beauty Box arrived, so thought I would show you what was inside! May's box seems to have come around quick as it doesn't seem a month ago when I received the April Box and this month's box seems full to the brim with products! She Said Beauty, it launched two months ago so it's a fairly new monthly beauty box subscription, that you can cancel at anytime, whereby you get 5 deluxe samples (and normally a bonus item or two thrown in for good measure!) packaged beautifully and delivered to your door to try at home for £9 per month plus £2.95 postage & packaging. They are slightly cheaper than the other beauty boxes on the market and they offer special deals if you sign up for 3,6 or 12 months (see Discount Codes here) you can also save 25% off your first She Said Beauty by clicking here!




The box comes with a bright pink outer box, and a duck egg coloured inner box with a flip lid and all the products wrapped in straw and pink tissue paper. So onto what's inside this month's box:


Natio Lotus Soap Trio (worth £2.83)
This is an Australian brand that I was unaware of and is actually a full size soap - but is just one of the three that comes as a trio set. The soaps feature all-natural Indian Attar perfume which is the mind calming and mood enhancing scents used during yoga.


Inika Certified Vegan Lip Whip (worth £14.30)
This is a full size product that came boxed in lovely packaging and Inika is a brand that I have tried a few items from which is an organic vegan and cruelty free brand. I received the Lip Whip in 'Apricot' which is a gold/bronze shade which is not the colour I would go usually go for in a lip stick.    


The Vintage Cosmetics Company False Lashes (worth £6)
I was happy to receive these strip lashes in 'Betty' made from human hair, they are a nice shape and create the perfect almond shaped eyes. This is another full size item, a brand that I haven't tried before and I think they are reasonably priced for strip lashes.


Kim Kardashian Eau De Parfum (worth £2.29)
I know receiving perfume samples in the beauty boxes is a touchy subject - I agree that most of the time you can pick up free perfume samples at most beauty counters. I wouldn't consider a tiny vital sample a 'luxury' sample however this boxed roller ball is a more substantial and is acceptable to receive. I used to own the full size of this perfume until it was taken by someone with sticky fingers from my office draw - brand new too would you believe!? Tut Tut This roller ball is really handy to keep in your handbag or desk draw - but keep it locked!  


Green People SPF15 with Tan Accelerator (worth £2.59)
I have tried a couple of items from Green People and this is a welcome product as it's a natural and organic SPF15 with a carob based tan accelerator, clinically proven to speed up your tan by 25%. I look forward to trying this and it's the perfect size to carry in your hand luggage if you were going away for a few days in the sun. 


*Bonus* Snowberry 3 sample gift (worth £10.62)
This is a brand that I haven't heard of before, but Snowberry is a skincare brand made from a rich fusion of the purest and finest active ingredients from New Zealand and I'm looking forward to testing these. I received three sachet samples in a pink bag: Bright Defense Night Cream; Nourishing Rich Day Cream and Intensive Renewal Face Serum. 








This month's box works out at £38.63 which is pretty good considering the subscription only costs £9 plus £2.95 p&p so you are really getting your money's worth with two full size products, generous size samples and an added bonus gift. I am excited about trying out the new skincare and also the tan accelerator and strip lashes. 

You can subscribe for £9 a month plus p&p via the She Said Beauty website. You can save money by subscribing for 3,6, or 12 months see discount codes here and also if you are a first-time subscriber find out how to save 25% on your first box here
