She Said Beauty Box - October


I received my She Said Beauty Box for October last week.  Apologies for the darkish pics, it was one of those gloomy days.  Just a quick rundown of what was in the box...

Biao Beauty Rejuvenating Night Creme - 2 x 2ml sachets (full size $24.50/118ml) - this is supposed to 'soothe, moisturise and protect against premature ageing' - sounds like a lovely product but unfortunately only 2 sachets to test.

Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Masque - (full size $51.00/50g) - this is apparently an 'unparalleled scrub masque' - sounds ideal for my skin at this time of year but this is a 3g pot which isn't even full, barely enough product to cover my kite so maybe one usage - if that?

B.liv Off With Those Heads - 3ml (full size $49.00/30ml) Another teeny tiny sample. Want to try this as I do have combination skin and occasional blackheads. Will give it a go.

Amy Childs Fragrance by Jigsaw ESL - Quite a sweet and sugary fragrance - will put this in my little girl's Christmas Stocking.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Travel Size Lotion - full size £1.19/50ml - I do like Palmer's - this is a handy little size but nothing mind-blowing.

MyVitamins - good idea in theory, however I already take a cocktail of vitamins (vitamin D is included in my multivit) so don't want to take anything else at this point. Will give this to a friend at work.

I don't know, is it just me - am I being too picky? I'm just not feeling any excitement at all this month!  The contents are ok in theory  (although shame there wasn't a make-up sample included) but the some of the samples are so small ... I've had better boxes - never mind, not the end of the world.

Hopefully next month will be better?

  1. I wsan;t very impressed either, but haven't really tried anything yet so hoping the actualy products might change my mind? Hopefully it'll be a better month next month! x

  2. Products I've not heard of! I wish I could get all the beauty boxes. I'm following you now :)

    1. Not heard of most of these either - thanks for follow! x

  3. I was really unhappy with my Jolibox last month, but actually when I started to try the products it wasn't as bad as I thought! However I think I would have liked something instead of the cocoa butter as that is easily obtainable and cheap anyway? The masque and the night creme sound good, but like you say a bit on the small side? Let us know how you get on with it ! Xx

    1. I agree Claire and the masque and night cream do sound good - will keep you posted! xx

  4. I was so disappointed with my October box - just reviewed if you want to check it out xxx

  5. helloooo!
    i've just started following your blog, i LOVE it and can't wait to see what you post next.
    i have this problem with beauty boxes, but i get glossybox instead, i'm thinking of switching but it seems that all the boxes have their pros and cons.
    anyway, thank you for this little review, you've ben so helpful.
    please pop over for a chat, i'd love to speak some more.
    hope to hear from you soon,
