My First Ever Cohorted Beauty Box – April Edition!

Hi Guys!

I got a bit bored of my Birchbox subscription that I’d had for around 4 – 5 months, so I thought I’d see what else there was on the market beauty box wise. After a little bit of research, I’d decided to give Cohorted a try as it’s more of a luxury, high end box with an amazing box value each month!

The Cohorted beauty box costs £35 each month that you receive it, which is very expensive, BUT the value of the contents in each box is usually around £100 – which means that you are actually saving money against if you were buying these products full size from another shop.

When I was researching beauty boxes, I found people’s blog really useful and as this was of the more expensive boxes, it helped me make sure I wasn’t wasting my money. So I thought I’d add my review to the mix so hopefully, this might help someone else who’s after a bit of monthly pampering/treats!

September Birchbox Unboxing!

Hi Guys! 

I’ve got a really exciting post for you, as I’m going to be showing you what I got in my September Birchbox! 🙂

I’ve been loving getting the Birchboxes each month and I’ve found that they are getting a bit more varied in my opinion, which I really like. You get a mix of skincare, haircare and make up bits and I’ve quite liked the variety that you get.

The ‘Never-Ending Summer’ July Birchbox…

July 2016 Birchbox Unboxing

I signed up for a beauty subscription box with Birchbox UK a couple of months ago and the time has come to unbox my July box with you all! The design of this ‘Never-Ending Summer’ box is really beautiful – the colours are so luxurious and  it has been created in collaboration with Millie Mackintosh – star of Made in Chelsea and model/businesswoman.

My previous months Birchboxes have been living on top of my chest of drawers, they are perfect for storing little things like hair clips, mini lip balms and stuff! Also, I’ve taken to putting my perfumes on top of the boxes as it’s the ideal place to leave them so I remember to put perfume on before I run out of my room/out of the house in the morning :).

Again this Birchbox cost £12.95, as it does each month but this month in particular the full size item alone was definitely worth it.

Here we go, I’m gonna show you what I got!

July Birchbox Inside...

July Birchbox

Contents of my July Birchbox

Elemis Hydra-Boost Day Cream (sample size) the full size costs £39 RRP- 

Elemis is an awesome brand to see in a subscription box, it’s used in many spas up and down the country so that’s a sure-fire sign it’s gonna do some good to your skin. This is described as an anti-oxidant rich day cream which helps to lock in essential moisture and if you read my most recent post about having dry skin you’ll know this will be right up my street! This has a really dewy finish (but not greasy) and it’s got the most gorgeous zingy fruity scent to it!

John Frieda Anti-Frizz Primer (full size) £9.99 RRP-

This product is full size, which is excellent considering how much a Birchbox costs. This primer from John Frieda has fell into my hands at the exact right time because at the moment I just have to go near the window and I can feel my hair starting to curl up at the ends. It’s been really humid in the UK at the moment and John Frieda are a brand who have spent a long time on trying to fix national and global frizz. I haven’t used this yet but am looking forward to it – think this will last me ages too!

Elemis, John Frieda, Nails Inc In My June Birchbox

Nails Inc Mini (sample size) the full size can cost £15 RRP-

The Nails Inc mini I received in my Birchbox was a pretty light green colour which is perfect for summer. I think this shade is called ‘Belsize Lane’ (unless I’ve read it wrong) and I’m really looking forward to trying this out, but wondering how long this tiny bottle will last me!

LOC x Millie Ultra Gloss Lip Pencil, (full size) £9 RRP- 

I’m a bit disappointed in this pencil but only because of the shade that I got, I think if I had got a shade more suited to my skin tone I’d be using this every day! This is a pale pink gloss stick in ‘Bohemian Rose’ which sounds really apt for something created by Millie Mackintosh. This is too light for me unfortunately but I will be giving this to a good home!

Caudalie Micella Cleansing Water (sample size) full size costs £15 RRP-

This micellar water is a great addition to this months box, for someone who sometimes travels quite a bit. This mini is perfect, with a good sturdy screw top there’s no chance of this spilling inside your bag. The cleanser is really gentle and light and actually does a good job of taking off eye make up too so I’m impressed :).

I’m excited to see what I get next month – let me know what’s your favourite from this box!

Thanks for reading everyone 🙂
