BEAUTY BOX SERIES ROUND UP - WHAT'S HOT | WHAT'S NOT



First of all can I just say a huge thanks to everyone who commented on my blog posts during the Beauty Box Series, I was so delighted to see so many of you read my posts and enjoy seeing what these beauty boxes were all about. If you missed them rude (haha jokes) I will have them all linked throughout this post. 

If you would like to see more of these let me know in the comments below. Is there a beauty box you are dying to try but don't want to commit just yet? Let me know I'd love to be the guinea pig haha, I wont stretch to luxury ones that cost £80 though just putting that out there. I was also thinking of doing food sub boxes as they seem to be popular at the moment, would that be interesting ? 

Anyway on to the actual Round Up, which box came out on top and which one was a flop ?! 


GlossyBox 


This was probably one of my favourites out all 4 and it was also the cheapest I got it on offer for £8.00 for my first box which is usually £10.00 per month + postage. I love that they come with Royal Mail now too it's such a life saver for me how dramatic I really liked the products that were included and used all of them which is rare for me, there's always one I'm a bit mehh about. I can confirm I have stayed subscribed to Glossy Box, can we get a woop woop! 




RoccaBox 


I had never heard of this box and was so intrigued to try this out, I really liked the products, I was especially excited to try the hair gummies out as I see them all over Instagram. For me thought it just wasn't that amazing for me to stay subscribed unfortunately. I wasn't overly fussed about any of the other products, there isn't anything bad about them I just wasn't feeling it ya know! So sadly this was a no from me. Sorry Roccabox 




Look Fantastic 


This was probably my absolute favourite box out of them all, I was delighted to see Dr Paw Paw in there which I've been wanting to try for ages and a loose banana setting powder which was worth about £30 was a real bonus, again I've used all of the products in this box which is why I am staying subscribed to Look Fantastic. 




Pink Parcel 


I was really excited for this one to arrive but sadly it was way overdue the date I wanted it to be which was quite disappointing. I do think it's good value for money and the amount of sanitary products you receive is more than adequate. I also liked the little beauty part of it but the only thing i've used is the dry shampoo. The eye product didn't work at all as the roller ball wouldn't move. I haven't continued my subscription with Pink Parcel as it didn't quite hit the mark for me 


I hope you found this post useful and can see a round up of my opinions on what's good and what's not so great. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried any of these boxes?

  2. I feel like lookfantastic has the best beauty boxes, I'm not a fan of glossybox in Poland - even some Russian beauty boxes companies are better than Polish ones also UK glossybox is more interesting. I'm so done with hair supplements in beauty boxes or hair dyes - my friend who has a blond hair once got a black hair dye in a beauty box, that was a bit fail XD

  6. In any case, this isn't tied in with persuading others about my concept of beauty. This is a push to put confinements on developing thoughts of beauty cause at times a few puzzles ought to never be unfurl and a few answers ought to never be told for as much as we deny it, we live for the amazements that comes our direction.PlasticSpot

  7. Drink a glass of water with a few drops of lemon every morning will benefit the whole body. The lemon peel can be rubbed on the skin to remove the tanning and dirt from the skin.
