She Said Beauty Box: September

Another month, another new beauty box! I really like the fact She Said send their boxes at the beginning of the month, its something to look forward to. Looks like this was themed 'Skincare September', where everybody got the same things for once. It's nice to do this every so often, makes it more fair. 4 full size products too, impressive! So, what did I think?




Ginvera Gree Tea Whitening Marvel | 10g Sample | Full Size £22
I was lucky enough to receive a full size one of this when I went to the She Said Beauty website launch last month. I've been using it for the past few weeks and absolutely love it. I'll be reviewing in more depth this week but it removes dead skin cells and does a brilliant job. Really pleased to see this in the box, perfect for travelling for me but I honestly believe lots of people with love this.

Collection Primed & Read Smoothing Make-Up Primer | Full Size £5.99

I knew Collection 2000 had re-branded themselves and their products, ditching the '2000' and adding more products to the line. I tried this and honestly don't like it. The primer I use it a moisturiser consistency, this feels greasy and silicon-like. Despite being a full size product, this didn't win me over. Plus, I'm not sure on the packaging. The pink font looks like it would appeal to a younger audience in my opinion.

Collection Fix Me Up Long Lasting Make-Up Fixer | Full Size £5.99
Not impressed that we received another product from the same brand, despite them being full size products. I didn't like this either, I didn't see a difference in my make up last longer at all. I'm afraid my MAC Fix+ will remain my favourite.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil | Full Size £3.50
I have really dry skin so I'm always looking for products to help. I didn't really like the idea of applying an oil to my face, but I did really like this. It improved the dryness and left my skin feeling clearer. Smells really nice too! It was featured in last month's GlossyBox so I'm pleased I didn't miss out! If I was a subscriber to GB too though, I'd be annoyed. I'm going to continue to use it and then I'll report back. 

Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask | Full Size 30ml 15ml £1.50
Yay, a brand I've not heard of or tried before, a natural face mask. Despite not being very high end or luxury, I'm happy to receive this. I've not tired it yet, but if I like it, I'll purchase again as I'm in the market for a new facial mask. 

Popchips (Bonus) Original Potato Chips | Full Size 23g 79p
Not going to lie, I opened the box and was hungry so dug in straight away. Despite being under 100 calories, they aren't that exciting and I literally had less than 10 'chips' in there! I have already tried them before at the She Said Beauty launch too. Also, why oh why did we receive a snack in a beauty box? Nice thought but no.

I liked this box but didn't love it. The Collection products didn't impress me at all, the brand is cheap and in my opinion, will remain to appeal to a younger audience. I already own the Ginvera Gel however, the mask and oil are nice beauty products to try out. I like the little bonus products that She Said generously give, but crisps just don't do it for me. I look forward to the next one but hope it's a bit better.

  2. Good review, I appreciate your honestly on the products - they even kind of looked young with the packaging.
