SheSaidBeauty Box April 2012

So today's post is all about the newest UK beauty box - SheSaidBeauty box. I stumbled across this one on google whilst searching for something else and after my Feel Unique Beauty Box was discounted (RIP!!!) I was delighted to see there was another one to take its place (that's a true addict talking isn't it?!)

Anyway - unfortunately I signed up just before their first box was released for March so this box is my first one from them. I did see a promotion code on their website at the time so rather than paying the £9 and £2.95 P&P - I paid £6 something and P&P for this box.

So let's talk about the box - it arrived in the typical beauty box outer box which is in a gorgeous bright pink. Opening it up it reveals a box ideal in style to the old Boudoir Prive box with the flap over lid and magnet clasp in a beautiful aqua shade. Inside there is a contrasting pink sheet of tissue paper with a pink ribbon. I love these colours together #decoratinginspiration(!) The products sit on a bed of what I can only describe as what looks like paper hay!!

So enough about the box... Let's get onto the good stuff

First on the list is the Filthy Gorgeous Nail Polish. This is a full size product at 10ml and has a RRP of £9. The colour I got is 'Tu-tu Much.' Its a beautiful coral pink shade. I have to be honest - the price says 'higher end' and not really a budget product but the bottle is really uninspiring and a little cheap looking. I think if I pulled this out to use it on a client they would likely think that it would be a low end product in a similar price bracket to the Beauty UK line in superdrug. Image is key and I don't think there's an awful lot of attention to the detail of this packaging. That being said - the colour is really nice and something I would definitely wear.

The next product is the Comfort Zone Body Expert Kit. This is a handbag style pouch with six different sachets of products that range from £19.95 - £58.25. The sachets are a mix of creams, shower gels and exfoliators. This is a lovely little kit - I love that there's so many of their product range to try in one little bag.

The box also had another full sized product - Mischa Barton Luscious Lips In 'Pink Pop.'. This balm has SPF15 with a hint of colour. It's exciting to see a brand that I am familiar with the name but not the cosmetics line. I have to be honest though - this balm is £12 and I wouldn't purchase it myself. I have already tried this a few times in the short space of time I've had it and it is definitely not as moisturising as some of the other lip conditioners I've tried - if at all.

BellaPierre Shimmer Powder in 'Champagne' is the next item on the card which has 100% Mica powder in it. It's a stunning colour and this is another full sized product worth £12.99!! This will be perfect for the warmer days and a gorgeous glory look so I look forward to cracking it open!!

A small sample pot is the last official item on the card. It's a face and neck polisher by Bharti Vyas. It is a gentle exfoliate with walnut shavings. It is only a very small sample compared to others but I'll definitely try it out but due to the size it's a 'one use' sort of sample.

Now for the extras... Theres a black smart looking mini folder containing five creams by Erno Laszio's The Hollywood Collection. These creams were used by some of Hollywood's finest including Marilyn Munroe. The full sized versions are priced between £85 and go up toa breathtaking £175 (now thats what you call luxury!) very excited to try these out.

Lastly - a lovely touch is the little Lindt egg they included. I smiled when I saw this and smiled more when I ate it.

A lovely pleasant box from this new company - keep up the good work and I look forward to opening my box next month!!
