She Said Beauty | First Impressions.


She Said Beauty, yet another beauty box subscription service brought to us by a team of specialists including beauty industry experts from ELLE UK, Estee Lauder and influential journalists and bloggers. If you want more info about She Said Beauty then just click here.

Curiosity got the better of me plus there was 25% off the first box, I have no willpower, it was obviously going to end up on my door step. This is the first box and I'm sure on the website it said we wouldnt receive it untill late march.

The box is a lovely aqua blue colour with a subtle white floral pattern and a flappy magnetic closure. On to the contents..



Instead of the usual black shredded paper its straw, I think?



Aveda Smooth Infusion Trio - Shampoo: £15.50, Conditoner: £17.50 and Style Prep: £18.50 / 10ml of each was included.
We Are Faux - Handmade lashes £9


Comfort Zone Good Night Kit - 4ml and 6ml / Full size 50ml £52.95


Orly File and Polish in Black Out. £5 (not sure what price the file is)



Jing Flowering Dragon Eye Tea
Collection2000 Cream Puff In Angel Delight - £2.99

Whats your thoughts on this box? I'm pretty indifferent about it to be honest. Its not a bad box in any way and I'll use a few of the products but nothing made wet myself with excitement. Am I just over beauty boxes all together?

  1. I think it's a nice enough box but i'm really glad i didn't cave in and order this one, not much in there i'd really want! The lashes look really nice though! x

    1. It is, I'm sure the majority will love it but I wont use the Collection2000 Cream Puff, Comfort Zone Goodnight Kit or the Dragon Eye tea. The Aveda Trio will be good for weekends away, the lashes seem nice and I needed a black polish so still got my moneys worth from this box .

  3. I love the colour of the box and do think it's quite a good one. The contents vary so much from box to box and with all monthly beauty boxes I'm sure you'll win some, you lose some. This looks nice enough, but I'm staying Glossybox loyal (for now...) xx

    1. The colour scheme is definately my fave out of all the boxes. I'm itching to know what this months Glossybox is all about.

  4. I think this is a good first box with Orly, Aveda and the eyelashes. I didn't subscribe to this box although I was tempted. I just don't need any more stuff that I may not use!

    1. It was a good first box and well worth the money but the thing that really annoys me is when we receive products from brands such as Collection2000, I have no interest in anything from the range and if I did I could just walk into Boots and buy it. It just doesnt fit into the 'luxury samples' bracket and not what I signed up for.

  5. looks quite good, but i'd personally only use about half of the products. was tempted to sign up but being subbed to 3 boxes already is pretty much my limit! x
