I have missed out on a few of the much coveted Cohorted beauty boxes and was delighted to get my hands on the July beauty box to sample the contents. I know there have been a few issues with customers trying their hardest (me included!) to buy the box on the 1st of each month (as a pre-order for the following month) at 6pm, from what I understand the Cohorted team only had a specific amount of units available and due to an unprecedented amount of customers trying to purchase they did sell out really quickly and this has happened each month.
They are however changing the way in which you can buy the beauty box as customers have given their feedback, and so many have expressed the fact that they want to buy the beauty boxes (as the contents are always top value and quality) but are left feeling disappointed when they have been unsuccessful each month.
Cohorted are re-assessing the ordering system and for this I applaud them as so many customers (and potential customers) have been very vocal on social media about this very fact, they want to buy the Cohorted beauty boxes! The products, the service, the fast postage are all excellent but we as customers have to be able to buy the product easily without fear that it will sell out within minutes to continue on getting the full benefit and to actually sample the contents of the beauty boxes.
What’s In The July Beauty Box?
On to this month’s beauty box, just to let you know all the products in the box are available from the Cohorted web site and each beauty box is £19.99 plus £2.50 postage and previous months have gone on sale on the 1st of each month although this month the August boxes were on sale on the 16th July at 6pm. If you are keen to try out one of the Cohorted beauty boxes my advice would be to sign up for their newsletter to get any new information and updates and also keep an eye out on their facebook and twitter pages too.
Diego Dalla Palma Snow White & The Huntsman Palette £25.00
This product alone is worth the cost of of the beauty box with change to spare! Six full sized eyeshadows in three very wearable matte and three slightly shimmery colours (browns and ivory colours) with a Wicked Queen Rossetto Rosso Red Lipstick also full sized which is a rich vibrant red colour and is very creamy and long lasting.
The eyeshadows are very easy to blend and great for everyday wear but also have some darker browns for a nighttime look, I don’t usually go for red lipstick as I can never find the right shade for me but I did like this one as it is so bold and sticking. If that wasn’t enough it also comes with a Dark Night black eyeshadow pencil for very precise intense definition around your eyes. The box also features a handy internal mirror for on the go application, a great little palette that I will be using again and again.
Gucci Flora Body Lotion 50ml £7.50
A gorgeous fruity and very feminine body lotion from Gucci that lasts so well though the day, I love the scent it’s a modern classic fragrance that even my OH noticed! The 50ml tube is an ideal size for any holiday plans as it is a generous sample size that will last well and lightly fragrance while giving the skin a good moisturise.
St Tropez Gradual Tan Firming Plus Lotion 150ml £20.00
It’s a trusted brand that I come back to again and again with fantastic results, so I was so happy to see a St Tropez item in the beauty box and it is a full sized one too. It’s a 4 in 1 product to help to tan, tone, firm and moisturise in one go, useful and no fuss for fast quick application.
My skin is very fair and pale but with this product you don’t need to worry about your skin hue as it works on all skin colours, moisturising, toning and firming as it gently tans your skin. What a winner for Summer plus it doesn’t have the horrible scent that some fake tans do, it has a fresh, soothing fragrance of aloe vera, which just reminds me of holidays!
Nails Inc Nail Polish Matte Gatwick £11.00
A strong matte red shade that is perfect for toes and fingers this Summer to give a touch of sophisticated chic, and keep you feeling smart and polished. I really like the matte look in a polish for something different and it looks so dramatic if you pair it with a contrasting gloss colour for a french polish too. Nails Inc continue to deliver with on trend colours and this modern shade is another winner.
A great collection this month that in total is worth £63.00 so great value again and exceptional very high quality products which aren’t just sample sized either, very good to see some full sizes as they last so much longer and are better value too. I can’t wait to see what’s in next month’s box!
