I'm dying to know: why does every single box (bar Joliebox, well done you lot) insist on paper stuffing, tissue wrap, asymmetric ribbon-tying, and round stickers? Is there a beauty box manual I'm unaware of?! It doesn't bother me, I'm genuinely just curious..
At first glance I was a bit meh. But when I properly looked at the products I was very impressed.
The first product that caught my eye was the NATIO White Lotus soap. I'd gotten a different pink one a week earlier, as I wrote the magazine entry about it (that you can read here), and I really really liked it. I found it really gentle, cleansed my skin really well despite not lathering very well, and I felt it left just the right amount of scent on my skin afterwards. Absolute winner!
Then I saw the INIKA lipgloss. Knowing they were cruelty free from last month's Glossybox's INIKA eyeliner, I was excited to try something else from the brand!
The Green People logo freaked me out a bit - I think it was one of the Feel Unique boxes that had a make-up remover from them a few months back, and it was genuinely the worst make-up remover I had ever tried in my entire life. Although skeptical, I LOVE how they chose an SPF to put in this box, because I feel like no beauty box had done that yet, and it's something that everyone says everyone should wear, but no one really knows which to go for?!
I really liked The Vintage Cosmetic Company lashes too. Not only is the packaging adorable, they're really nice natural ones (not just mine, but the other ones that went out too) that I think most people would not mind having a pair of :) Very considerate, and a very good going for choosing a unique brand!
I also loved the extra for this month. It's from a brand called Snowberry, which I already superficially adore, purely because of the name, but the illustrations on the sachets are SO ADORABLE. The colour choice is really cute too. I'm so excited to try this, and they included a really nice range of products from the brand to different people, and they have some pretty unique products so I'm excited to look into them more :)
Overall, I thought this was an amazing, well thought out box, with a great variety of products, ranging across perfume, skincare, accessories, make up and body care - a spectacular balance in my opinion! I also think the products they picked showed how they have listened to feedback that other boxes have gotten and that they have gotten. I really hope She Said Beauty keeps it up, because in my opinion, this individual box is the best one out of any beauty box company yet!
