She said beauty box June 2012

I love the whole concept of beauty boxes. If I could I would subscribe to all of them but alas in real world its all constrained by budget. So I had to cancel my glossybox to try out She said beauty. This is my first she said beauty box and here it goes...

Firstly I am really glad to see a box in the first week of the month.. I received it on June 1. I know its silly that a box in last week of a month is less pleasing than one in the first week... but that is what it is for me. Secondly I love the packaging of she said beauty.. the lid with magnet feels more sophisticated than the usual box.

Coming to the products inside... it looks jam-packed..

Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream
"This Green Tea BB cream by Ginvera is a unique blend of antioxidants that help fight against free radical damage and help prevent fine lines."

I am a lot into BB creams these days... have already written my review about No 7 BB cream for oily skin. I am currently trying maybelline, garnier. So I'm game to try this one and find out how it works.

Let's Go Lashes Temptress Strip Lashes"Let's Go Strip Lashes come in 4 fabulous ranges - Flirt, Tease, Temptress and Heartbreaker. There are 10 sensational styles in each range, so over 40 different lashes to suit every personality and every mood!"

I said in my previous posts that I am not big on lashes... I am more of mascara layering girl. Still I was really happy with these lashes due to shape... I love these which open outwards. For me the whole idea of false lashes is to add drama and these are called 'temptress'... they are just the right amount of drama for me.

Yardley London Royal Diamond Eau De Toilette"To celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Yardley London presents Royal Diamond - A sophisticated, sparkling fragrance opening with a touch of pear and bergamot surrounded by a subtle note of honey, with a delicate, romantic floral bouquet enhanced with a soft woody and vanilla base."

I loved this smell instantly.... I am not good at describing fragrances but its a gentle fragrance. In some sense probably its a little elderly scent... but the point is its good. So maybe I wont wear it to a pub but definitely there are more formal occasions on which this suits fine... Given that the full size product retails for £9.99 for 50ml I already bought it! :)

Mischa Barton Whipped Shea Body Butter in Lemon Zest
"Say goodbye to dry! Mischa's super-moisturising whipped body butter softens and disappears, revealing soft supple skin."

I really love shea butter based creams coz its lighter and more manageable than the cocoa butter ones. But I have too many body creams as of now and I dint want to even touch this one coz I really plan to give it away to someone who would use it.

St Tropez Self Tan Perfect Legs
This lightweight 360 aerosol spray gives instant colour and an airbrushed finish whilst building a natural long-lasting self tan, for naturally tanned perfect legs. Contains St. Tropez aromaguard technology. Created by St. Tropez, the tanning experts you trust to get it right.

I am a warm toned and a day in sun could get me 2 shades darker and I get a self-tan product... ha ha ha... Still this product is quite useful to me at the moment coz my legs are lighter than my hands and my hands are lighter than my face.. I have no clue what was the creator (if there is one) thinking when he made me. Anyways whenever I wear skirts/shorts I prefer to flaunt my natural skin as against stockings. This tanning spray should make it convinient matching my legs to my face complexion. Haven't got a chance to try it yet.

Elemis Tranquil Touch Indulgent Bath Elixir

Lately I am in love with these bathing products in beauty boxes. I know I cant use a 200 mls of product which is why I dont really buy most bath products. Also most bath products end up smelling over powering for me but finally I found something thats smells divine! its not mild but not too strong... perfectly relaxing!
Overall this box gets a 'good' from me. There are no inappropriate or non-usable products... Lashes and perfume get thumbs up!

Given that I am testing the boxes to decide which one to stick my loyalties to... I am being a little too critical. Lets see how it goes for next ones... What are your experiences with beauty boxes? which one do you think is better?

I'd be really interested to know how the spray tan works... I'm always scared to use products like that!
