Blogger Beauty Box is a monthly beauty sub box started by a fellow blogger Vix of Vix Meldrew. It is a one man band but she is doing an amazing job. She is securing products then sending out to about 30-50 bloggers a month for £10 P&P inclusive. Though I did not have a great introduction to the service and will probably hold off for now. I had read about the Blogger Beauty Box and I thought what an amazing idea. Rushed to the website and placed my order at the end of April hoping to get either the April or the May box.
As I was away for most of April and first two weeks of May, I never thought to follow-up until a few weeks later. I messaged Vicky who was sweet and confirmed she had sent the box but unfortunately nothing arrived on my end. I checked with local post office and they confirmed nothing has come through to them. Not sure what had happened but long story short, I decided to send another tenner for recorded delivery. The box arrived a couple of days later, I then tried a few of the products and here is my review.
Blogger Beauty Box Review
The products came in a simple but nice box with bright soft paper to cover the products. The box I got contained:
- Raspberry & Blueberry bubble bath and shower creme
- Fab little bag
- Nanogen root boost hair thickening spray
- Lipaholic lipstick
- Derma Babies full of hope nipple cream
What I liked
The majority of beauty boxes contain 4-5 products so I was happy to see that this box came with full-sized products. Not all beauty boxes come with full-sized products, most of them are just samples. I don’t think with most products you can really tell if you like the products from just having a sample. I don’t know about you but for me shower gels and bath cremes have to be either travel size or bigger. If they are smaller, I don’t really see the point of trying them.
I thought it was really neat to have the Fab little bag in the box, these are really handy for that time of the month. I always forget to buy those scented disposable bags for my pads and tampons, so this was a definite welcome item. Another item I am really loving is the Nanogen root boost hair thickening spray. Over the last few years, I seem to have developed a bold path in the middle of my head. I have loved spraying the Nanogen every morning before work, my skull is clean and feels soft and fresh.
What I didn’t like
Since I am not yet a mama nor do I have issues with my nipples, this is one item that I feel is totally useless to me. It seems like a great product for mama’s but for those of us who are yet to reach that hallmark in our lives, it’s not handy. I am planning on gifting this to my cousins who just gave birth.
Everyone knows I know me a good lipstick and often willing to try different shades but this is not one of them. For my skin tone this is too bright and looks like I just ate soil and smudged it on my lips, definitely not for me. I have a few friends that know how to work such lipsticks so this is one I will be gifting.
I have said this before, not every beauty box out there will have items that you like/love. For me this box had some items I had never tried and still loved, and items I didn’t and won’t try.
What do you think of the items I got in my Blogger Beauty Box? You heard of the Blogger Beauty Box before?
