I decided recently to sign up for a monthly beauty box subscription, just to cheer myself up after a shitty few weeks. Yep, I finally jumped on the beauty bandwagon and opted for a beauty box from Feel Unique.
My box arrived the other day and I was very excited - it was the first time it's felt like Christmas since, well, Christmas itself!
I know some people have mixed feelings about these boxes but I was very pleased with mine - it contained products from pretty good brands like Decleor and Elemis among others, they aren't tiny sizes but quite generous samples. My favourite so far is probably the Leighton Denny nail polish - it's silver and a bit holographic. See below . . .
Muchos apologies for the shitty pics - the lighting in my room is particularly off at the moment due to my main lightbulb packing it in. So I have three lamps on which doesn't really make for the best lit pics.
But yes, I loved this box and I look forward to trying everything out. I'll keep my subscription going for a few months yet anyway!
In other news, I have also signed up for a weekly Graze box (had one so far and I'm loving the little snacks, most of which are fairly healthy - you can get one yourself at www.graze.com - a free one if you use the code DHQ69ZT!) and ANOTHER beauty box from Carmine (www.carmine.co.uk) - I'm really looking forward to that arriving too!
The added bonus for me is because I write reviews on Ciao, I can review these products and get some extra pennies (LITERALLY pennies, mind! It doesn't pay much.) But that's an extra little result - I'll be making back a LITTLE of what I've spent on the box! Ha! :-)
(UPDATE: after me singing their praises, I am just in receipt from an email from Feel Unique to inform me that they are discontinuing their beauty box service. Nice. Thanks guys. I'll try not to take it personally that I only just signed up. Ha.)
Do YOU like beauty boxes/snack boxes or not? Do you have a subscription to any of them?
