She Said Beauty Box - October 2012

This months she said beauty box as more then the usual five months products in, i am guessing to make up for the fact that the products are nothing more then sample size with a palmers cocoa butter in a travel sized bottle. I am slightly disappointed but i won't be doing anything drastic and cancelling my subscription. The reason i am disappointed is the size of the products, i like to get a real feel for each product i would of liked them to be slightly bigger, but i am happy with the palmers cocoa butter, i love this product have tried it before but i run out ages ago so this will go down a treat, however i am happy to try some new and exciting products with what formula i manage to get out of them.

 Herbacin hand cream, full size. 99p for 20ml or £3.49 for 100ml

What she said beauty say -

Herbacin's Wuta Kamille Hand Cream contains a wealth of natural ingredients designed to protect your hands from all weather conditions.
Key ingredient Chamomile has been used for centuries to heal and restore; glycerine smoothes, moisturises, and ensures skin elasticity; and silicon protects the hand from everyday environmental abuse.

My review - I haven't used a lot of hand creams and this is a small sample like a Vaseline tin however i am really impressed, you get quite a lot for your money and you only need a tiny amount. This left my hands feeling very smooth and really refreshed. It smells quite nice also like a floral smell. I think when this as gone i will after buy a full tub.

My Review - I fair like this, the creme is a great one for a nice little pamper. The creme is like a mask and peels off in little bits, it smells floral which is quite nice. i was quite impressed with the amount you get there only small but you can get 2/3 nights out of one and will most defiantly be using it again tonight because it left my skin feeling very soft and smooth.

My Review - I love the smell of this, it smells like strawberry bubble gum. Look forward to trying it, its a very small sample and you don't get much product in the tub. This was a very small sample, probably could get two days out of it depending on how thickly you apply it. I didn't with my first attempt. I preferred last months face mask which was actually ALOT cheaper. check it here. I wasn't so keen had go out and buy it and i don't think it's worth the price.

My review -  This smells like toothpaste. Again another small sample, don't think i can get a proper tester out of this because i don't see know change which you probably notice after using a full week.

my vitamins full size £2.49 for 30 tablets

She said Beauty -

My Review - I am unsure whether i will try these tablets or not because i hate taking tablets how ever i may try one. For a tester for you people.


  1. I'm still waiting for mine, don't know whats happening to the bloody post in my area! Not my fave box though, I prefer make up and the products are small too.

    1. Mine came this morning at like 8am. Was pretty shocked because deliveries usually come at dinner due to lack of postmen and the change that's going on. Not my fav but theres some alright products to try, new ones that have not used they could be bigger. I am having some real problems with my posts this morning, reckon the bloggers slightly down lol. Taking me forever to do this xx

    2. Hopefully blogger gets sorted for you asap. I received my she said beauty box now, the vitamins are the product that I like the most lol. I also received my models own order, woo hoo, xoxo.

    3. Woo check your postman out lol. Hes found your address ;) i have wrote more on my post but its not showing up half of it even seems to disappear as i get towards the end of writing my post. I hate tablets with a passion, had a sore throat for over a week so struggling to swallow :( the box isn't as bad as others make out its just the sizes are small the products are okay. But not entirely shocked great britain the nation of moaning :) xx

    4. Oh dear, I hope the blog thing gets sorted. I've had a sore throat too, hope you get better, :) xoxo.
