Pink Parcel – November 2016

This month Pink Parcel have joined forces with LOOK Magazine for the first of three exclusive boxes, put together with the help of the team at LOOK HQ. The November boxes feature a little twist and, unlike previous month’s where boxes were identical, this month you can expect a few surprises as your products are chosen at random from a selection. So what was inside my box?

You Beauty Discovery – December 2015

If there’s one month I particularly like to indulge myself in it’s December. Those long dark evenings really do call for decadent scents, flickering candlelight and sumptuous bubble baths. With that in mind You Beauty Discovery brought their subscribers a short-list packed full of luxurious beauty products, guaranteed to deliver a little sparkle to these cold winter months.

Birchbox – June 2015 Review

As I unveiled in my Spoiler post Birchbox have collaborated with French Sole for their June ‘Step Outside’ box. Inspiring us to preen, primp and put our best foot forward this box shouts “Summer is here” and judging by about-turn weather-wise it certainly is!

This month all subscribers had the opportunity to select one of three box designs, and I opted for the stunning watercolour poppy design that, as I discovered when it arrived today, is even more beautiful in the flesh. But enough about the box, let’s take a peek inside!

Lookfantastic Beauty Box June 2015 Edition

My first beauty box of the month has just landed!

The LookFantastic Beauty Box is a subscription box that was unveiled with a bang only last year and quickly became a firm favourite of mine; each month featuring six products from a variety of beauty brands for just £15. This month’s line-up includes Nuxe, Murad, Caudalie, Ren, Label.m and Balance Me and barring two products is definitely skincare focused. Whilst the selection is solid enough, it lacks the wow factor of their previous boxes, for reasons that will become clear as you read on.

Just a few days ago you may have seen me reveal the Birchbox Spoiler for March’s box, which promised a collaboration with home and lifestyle brand Habitat and the theme Do Try This At Home. Well, now the boxes containing March’s beauty treats have been dispatched and are landing on subscribers’ doorsteps as I type.

Sporting a brightly coloured makeover, the boxes certainly look the business and definitely shout Spring, but as always the focus is firmly on the treats nestled inside. After some really impressive boxes from Birchbox this one had a lot to live up to, so is it hit or miss this month? Read on to find out!

Birchbox – January Review

My eagerly awaited January Birchbox has landed on my doorstep and has certainly brightened up what has otherwise been a lacklustre start to 2015. The theme of the January Birchbox is Hit Refresh and as Birchbox had already revealed this box is produced in conjunction with Women’s Health Magazine.

The idea of Hit Refresh as outlined in the enclosed booklet is to make small but meaningful enhancements to your lifestyle, rather than radical changes that are too easily dropped by the wayside and the box is full of tips and words of encouragement to help you on your way to a healthier, more fulfilling New Year. So what products are in this month’s line-up?
