July 2012 She Said Beauty Box

Hello. It’s that time of the month again (no, not THAT time) where my She Said Beauty box comes through my door. It doesn’t seem like long ago since I received my last box so I was pleasantly surprised to come home to this!

I hadn’t seen any spoilers so didn’t have a clue what to expect. Since looking on the website and at other reviews, it looks as if everyone has very similar products and there isn’t too much variation between boxes, which I think is fair. I have had a chance to use a few of these items, so here is what I think.

White Glo - Professional Choice Toothpaste - Full Size £4.07
I actually already have this at home, so for me this sample wasn’t that exciting. This toothpaste does help to make your teeth whiter over time but you really need the full size item to give you enough to do this. This also tastes powdery so may not be to everyone's taste but I think it’s alright. I’m actually off on holiday in a couple of weeks so this is ideal to take for the week, and saves me buying a sample size.

Balance Me - Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve - Full Size £12.00
I was slightly disappointed by receiving this product, as I had literally gone out and got glamour magazine last week which contained this same free gift. This lipsalve is alright, nothing special I would say but it’s good to have in your handbag for those times when your lips are dry. I think this will come in handy in the winter.

Redken Colour Extend Radiant -10 - Full Size £19.99
This product claims to provide 10 essential benefits to your hair. I am trying to fade the current dye out of my hair so I don’t want to try this out yet, but I have sprayed it and think it smells nice and feels like it will be light and nourishing. I will be dying my hair soon and will definitely try this product out.

Papier Poudré – Rachel Powdered Paper - Full Size £7.96 for 6 x 20 leaf booklets.
I have wanted to try blotting paper out for a while as I often get an oily t-zone throughout the day. I used this after my foundation in the morning and could definitely tell by the look of the paper that it had soaked up something, unfortunately I think this may have been my make-up. The paper gave a powdered look to the face but seemed to lift some of my foundation away. I will try using this before my make-up to see if that makes a difference, but I think to be honest, this does nothing my normal setting powder doesn’t do.

Absolutely Flawless Nail Foils  - Full Size £1.90 (32 foils)
Before I saw these foils, I saw the little postcard with all 130 designs on. There were a few I liked the look of but I seem to have received one of the less exciting designs. I have used nail foils before and they only lasted a couple of days but these ones are so cheap, I think they will be worth it if they only last that long. I haven’t used them yet, I thought I would put them on for my holiday, so will let you know how I get on.

4711 – Eau De Cologne - Full Size £17.00
When I first opened this, I was telling my mum about all of the products I have received and when I mentioned this she said, ‘’ooh that will be nice I’ve heard of that’’.. I immediately thought oh no, this must be old, and I personally think this is a more mature fragrance. The bottle it came in however, was absolutely adorable and looks cute sitting on my shelf.

Overall, I would say this months box is so-so. There wasn’t really anything that I was majorly excited about, but at the same time I think I will use the majority of these products. Looking forward to next months.
