Once again it’s that time of the month, when the Cohorted monthly beauty box finds it’s away through our letterboxes. This month there are five full size products and a sample spray of the Lola perfume by Marc Jacobs.
According to the beauty booklet included, this box has a value of £111.50!!
So first up we have..
Elemis Pro Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks x2, RRP: £15.00
Eye masks and face masks are becoming ever so popular at the moment, with being something that I have to say I am not overly familiar with, so when seeing these in this months box I was very happy, especially as they are by Elemis which is a brand I know to be good quality. One thing I am unaware of however is if there are two masks per sachet or one for each eye! but either way I am not complaining!
BareMinerals Night Treatment, in the shade: Medium, RRP: £45.00
This type of product is definitely something that I have never seen before, so when seeing this in the box I was very intrigued. Within the booklet it describes this product to reduce the appearance of pores, improve luminosity and deliver increased cell turnover whilst wearing overnight. This product has a retail price of £45.00, which to me seems a lot of money for perhaps a product that personally I would never choose to buy, however I am very pleased that I have been able to try this product out from being subscribed to the box.
Dove Underarm Dark Mark Eraser
A trouble that I can’t say I personally suffer with therefore I will be giving this product away!
This product was a substitute this month, as after speaking to a member of the Cohorted team I discovered that the Pixi crayon combo was one of the products supposed to be in the box, however due to a slight delay it could not be included.
Cargo Cosmetics Long Wear Lip Gloss, in the shade: Bourbon Street, RRP: £10.00
Now for me receiving lipsticks, lip glosses, pencils etc. in subscription boxes does make me slightly worried, I mean don’t get me wrong I have received many lip products that I have found to love in the past but at the same I have also opened some that I dislike very much! I personally believe someone’s lip colour is very personal and in our own way we all wear a lipstick quite different to the next person, so with me going on to say that I don’t like this shade please don’t take it personally if you do, (I mean we’re all different aren’t we?). This shade is really quite vibrant and bright, which isn’t a style I go for therefore I will be giving this lipgloss away to someone who will appreciate it. I can however appreciate Cargo as a good brand with owning a lipstick by them already.
CHANEL Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow, in the shade: Apparition, RRP: £25.00
Firstly, it’s very fair to say I was shocked to see a CHANEL product in the box this month.. I mean CHANEL!?!
I couldn’t lie to you and pretend I am not a little disappointed with the shade, but perhaps smoked out and used in moderation I may be able to pull this off, (finger’s crossed!).
MARC JACOBS Lola Perfume – SAMPLE 1.2ML
and last but not least.. a perfume that I know I already love! Lola is a sweet florally scent that you really don’t need a lot of. I also find these cute little spray bottles very handing for taking on nights out, dropping in your purse or evening taking travelling!
What did you think to this month’s box?
