She Said Beauty | October 2012

Out of all the beauty box subscriptions around, I've always loved and supported She Said  Beauty. I've met some of the people behind the brand and they're helpful, friendly and genuine. I love the concept of their website too. I got my first box a few months ago when I saw the previous one had full size St Tropez and lashes. I was so impressed when I received four full size samples in my first one but since then, it's been going a little downhill. I was disappointed with two Collection products last month and I'm honestly not impressed with this month either.

What I received:
Cellinque Advanced Bio renew Masque
B.Liv Off With Those Heads
Herbacin Wuta Kamille Hand Cream
Biao beauty Rejuvenating Night Creme
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Travel Size Lotion
Myvitamins "SSB Treat"

Okay firstly, how many creams?! You've got cocoa cream, hand cream, night crème moisturiser and err spot cream.

Secondly, beauty boxes to me are about trying high end products before buying. I appreciate they don't include overly priced products, because lets face it, we'd use the sample and never buy the product. However, the two 'full size' products are worth £1 each. I really don't want to be receiving things like this, it defeats the point of trying something expensive before buying it.

She Said put THREE of the products in dollars. I mean, how are we meant to know how much they're really worth? I had to work out the prices of these samples and it comes to a total of about £7.64 without the "bonus extra".  Therefore, the contents don't make up the value which is a real first for She Said. Have I gained much by spending £11.95 on this box? Not really. 

Do we have two products from the same brand too? B.liv by Cellnique and the Cellnique masque? Hhhmm. The Palmer's butter is SO old too, my mum bought that YEARS ago. I'm pretty sure most people own it or have previously. I'd like to be trying new products please! I like the concept of the 'extra' but Vitamins?! NO, it's a beauty box!

Finally, the samples are TINY. I rummaged through the box to find more... What happened to the full size, larger products? There's not enough inside the Cellinqiue Masque to get a real feel of it!

The only good thing about this are two packets of the biao beauty night moisturiser. Two though? Is that to make up for the fact the samples are all so small? I checked and I'm glad I didn't get the Amy Child's perfume though...

I'm not happy with boxes any more. They're a bit of rip off and I just don't get excited like I used to. Unfortunately, this has left me unsubscribing to She Said Beauty but I'll still use their website and read their blog. I'll be buying my samples off eBay and asking at more counters to save money. 

What do you think? Were you happy with your box and the products or left feeling disappointed too?
