I've been lusting after so many different beauty boxes for so long (hello Birchbox!), but all of them seem to either come with a hefty price tag, or insist on a subscription. As I probably wouldn't want a box every month, the latter doesn't appeal to me at all. Plus, the more expensive ones, although carrying high quality products, still only have minis, and there's always the risk of paying a lot for a box and not liking the contents.
This is where the Blogger Beauty Box comes in. It's a fairly new company, and as such only produces between 30 and 50 boxes a month, but at £10 per box, and no need to subscribe I think it's the best option out there at the moment! You get to try products from a whole range of companies, including some lesser known ones so that you get the chance to try products you may not have been able to pick up in shops.
I was so excited to see a Burt's Bees Sunny Day lip gloss in there, as I've always wanted to try a Burt's Bees product, but have never had the chance. This was a full sized gloss and gives a nice pink sheen to your lips, perfect for a neutral look to go with smoky eyes this season.
My other favourite had to be the Stvdio 5 soap which was SO CUTE. Stvdio 5 produces totally vegan products, and this little doughnut of good smelt and feels fab on your skin. I love trying out products that are both good for the planet and good for ourselves, so this soap and the Bionsen aluminium free roll-on deoderant were perfect for me. I have to say, the deoderant was a little disappointing, and I've found myself having to reapply it during the day.
I can't wait to see what there is in store for me in December!
