April Blogger Beauty Box

Sunday 5 June 2016

When I saw that the fabulous Vix Meldrew had put together a beauty box especially for bloggers, I just had to sign up for one! They're only £10, including postage and you don't have to subscribe, just buy as you go. 

Each box contains 4-5 full size products and is a great way of discovering new brands and products.

The April box is the first I've received and I wasn't disappointed with the variety in this one :)

Make Up Geek Blush in Infatuation - worth £7.95
I'd never heard of Make Up Geek before, but having a quick google, I realised that it's a much-loved brand by bloggers. That's why boxes like these are so good for discovering new favourites. I think the shade is a bit dark for me so I've passed this on to a friend. The texture of it was spot on though, as far as blushers go, so I'll have to try a different shade.

Witch Daily Primer and Clearing Serum - worth £6.99
This is without a doubt my favourite product in the box. I've been using it every day as I do like to use a primer before applying my make up and what a bonus that this works away underneath it all to fight off spots! I genuinely have seen an improvement in my skin since using this. It hasn't got a silliconey texture like porefessional does, it's more like a gel.

Maya Hair Styling and Curling Creme - sample
I haven't heard of Maya hair products before but I'm looking forward to trying this. Since I had my hair cut shorter, I'm having to experiment more with hair products to give it a of style. In the past, I've only been a shampoo, conditioner and hairspray kinda gal!

1001 Remedies Soin Millenaire - worth £69
This price of this anti-ageing cream could buy you 7 boxes, that's how good the box is for money! The cream claims to stimulate collagen production, which at that price, I hope it truly does. The cream is rich and nourishing, but I couldn't get over the smell of it. Not a fan sadly, so I've given this to my mum....Saying that, I've still been stealing a bit before bed because it does feel so nice on the skin.

Tropic Sun Drops Tanning Serum - worth £22
This is a completely novel product to me. You add a few drops to your moisturiser and it's supposed to gradually give you more and more of a tan. I've only actually used it once so far and I did notice a subtle glow. Will get it out more as the holiday season nears! It's a bit more than I'd usually pay for a tanning product but that's why getting these boxes is so good - you don't pay full price :)

Merumaya Overnight Recharge Cream - Sample
It's difficult to review a product with such a small sample but from what I've tried, this cream has a nice smell, texture and feel on the skin. I absolutely love the Merumaya mud mask so it was nice to get something else from the brand.

TOTM Tampons - worth £2.80
Well it's always good to have a practical product isn't it! I haven't used these yet but I'm sure these will come in handy. They're 100% organic cotton and will be good for those of us with sensitive skin. It's a bit of a rubbish time anyway without having any allergic reactions to deal with too!

So in summary, this whole box was worth approximately £108.74...and I got it all for a tenner including postage and packaging. You really can't get much better than that can you :)!!!

Which subscription boxes do you recommend?


  1. I desperately want to try the Makeup Geek eyeshadows - they have so many amazing colours! What a lovely box (and definitely value for money!)

  2. This is so impressive! Can't believe it costs that much, definitely worth looking into. Loving that the tampons are organic, which can be hard to find usually!
