October She Said Beauty Box - First Thoughts

This afternoon my She Said Beauty box turned up at my door. This month I think there was a bit more variation with what everybody got in their boxes, so here's what came in mine.




myvitamins essential vitamin D3
I thought it was a little odd to get vitamins in a beauty box, although they're the extra item in the box or "SSB Treat" I just don't think they really fit in within a beauty box. I wouldn't like to see items like this regularly in beauty boxes. That being said I probably will give them ago as a little extra vitamin d might be a good idea in the coming winter months.

Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Masque
formulated with a complex of fresh fruit enzymes and acids, it effectively works in exfoliating dead skin cells optimizing the cellular renewal performance and deeply cleanses the pores
I was actually really excited to receive this as it sounds right up my street. The only problem I have is that the sample is so teeny tiny!

Amy Chids Fragrance
I've had a quick sniff of this and it smells quite nice but I don't like it when fragrance samples are counted as a full item in a beauty box, it just feels a little bit like a cop out.

Biao Beauty Rejuvenating Night Creme
soothes, moisturises, and protects against premature aging
Yet another product that is right up my street, I've actually been looking for a new night cream so I'm really excited to try this out. Though I recieved two sachets of this, still, it's a fairly small sample size.

B.liv Off With Those Heads
keeps excessive oil secretion under control while preventing future irritation and blackouts
As someone who suffers from regular breakouts I'm always eager to try anything that promises to relieve me of the little buggers, so I'll definitely be trying this out soon. Again, a teeny sample though!

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula
Now don't get me wrong, I love this stuff and always have a tube on the go. My issue is that I didn't expect to find it in a beauty box. For me, beauty boxes are for discovering new and different products from different brands that I'm maybe not familiar with. But this is a well established brand and on top of that it's a product that been around for a long time and I'm pretty sure is one of their most popular products. It just feels like it's a cheaper product to bulk out the box a bit!

Overall I've been a bit "meh" about this box. It just seems that the products I really want to try are such tiny sample sizes, and the products I already have tried or aren't overly interested in are the full size products!

Did you get this months She Said Beauty box? What did you think? Have you tried any of these products? x


  1. It does sound a bit meh tbh, I was considering she said beauty box over all the others but tbh that box looks so average and I think I'd be dead disappointed! xxx


  2. I unsubscibed from these boxes as I found myself being more and more disappointed with them due to such small samples.

    Great review! It's nice to read an honest one.

    I've decided to save the £12 each month until I can buy something I really want :)

  3. I haven't tried any of the subscription boxes because I hate the hassle of cancelling them and on top of that I've been really underwhelmed with what people have been getting but I just ordered my first Latest in Beauty box last week and I love it! It's non-subscription and you get to see what's in the box before you try :) xx


  4. To be honest I'd have been very unimpressed with this box - I subscribe to GlossyBox and am really happy with it, and was a bit tempted to try SSB - glad I didn't this month! x

  5. I'm most happy with the vitmains! xo
