The Very First She Said Beauty Box (March)

Hello Beauties,

Happy Friday!

So today the very first beauy box from She Said Beauty arrived, been waiting on this baby for about 2 months now. To say i was excited is a slight understatement. I have to say, i'm really pleased with my first box, was worth the wait.


The principle is the same as Glossybox, Carmine, etc- a monthly subscription.

It arrived in a hot pink carboard box with a sweet little sticker:





The box itself is a beautiful sort of duck egg blue (reminds me of Tiffany's packaging), with a magnetic fastening. The products are nestled nicely in straw. It all looks very simple and chic.





Orly Manicure Miniature

I received this in the colour 'Black Out', i adore black nail polish so this is a hit for me. The colour glides on smoothly and has a very high shine finish. I also received an Orly Nail File.


We Are Faux Eyelashes

Oh you just can't go wrong with eyelashes when it comes to me, i'm a huge fan of them. They are an essential when it comes to nights out, etc. I received ones that are full and flirty, they are called 'Night Hunter'.



Collection 2000 Cream Puff

Now i haven't bought anything from Collection 2000 for years- it's never been a brand that i've been attracted to, so i was a bit disappointed to see this in the box. However i was pleasantly surprised with this. I received a beautiful colour, Cotton Candy. It applies smoothly and dries to a goregeous matt finish. I may just have to invest in a few other colours, it's that good.


Aveda Soot Infusions Trio

Three minis, a shampoo, conditioner and style- prep smoother. I've heard a lot about Aveda but have never tried anything from their range, so i'm excited. From the size of the samples, i'll get maybe two uses out of them.



Comfort Zone Good Night Kit

This is the product i'm least excited about trying mainly just down to owning too many creams, eeek i have them coming out of my ears! I'm also loving my Steam Cream from my Carmine box at the moment so i shall try this at a later date.



Jing Flowring Dragon Eye Tea

A light and fragrant green tea, i gave this to my mother as i don't drink tea. She's a fan of different teas: camomile tea, green tea, she loves them. I shall get her verdict on this later.



So there we have it...

The very first She Said Beauty Box!

If you are thinking of subscribing, they are currently offering you 25% off your first box (for a limited time).

  1. Looks a good box :) I'm debating whether to subscribe to another one alongside JolieBox. Either this or Carmine...
    I love the C2000 Creampuff! Have three already lol. I do find that they 'crackle' on your lips after a few hours though xx

    1. Oh Amy you make me laugh :) I sub to Carmine, Glossybox & Joliebox. She said is only a gift sub to see what it's like. I was going to ask... Was it the wonderful Chanel foundation sample and the shishedo? My mother opened some packages yesterday she thought were for her...blind as a bat without her spectacles :)

  10. I can't wait for mine to arrive! It looks fabulous, it's also a nice touch that the Orly colours are both lovely, so no-one should feel especially put-out.

    Gorgeous review! xx

  11. The products that you received seem pretty decent, but what is the price of that box?
    I think the idea of those boxes is great as you get to try out different things, but you can get testers for free behind the counters and I think there will be a lot of product that you won't like and use in the long run. I personally would not subscribe to one.
    But hope you enjoy it!
    Great blog btw!
    Lots of LOVE
