June She Said Beauty Box

It's that time again, another peek into my She Said beauty box for June! Where is the time going? You may have already seen what's inside this box, and I'm not going to apologise that it's "late" because i actually like to try the products before blogging about them, to give you guys my honest opinion. One think i always find with she said, is the products you get are such a good size, and you almost always get a bonus product too so it's really worth your money. Also, i find they are products you would actually use on a day to day basis, rather than getting anti ageing cream that i pass on to mum.

The first product that caught my attention was the Elemis Spa home Tranquil touch indulgent bath elixir. I haven't tried Elemis before, despite my mum owning pretty much their entire range and i did enjoy using this. It made bath time feel a little bit more special and relaxing with the bubbles it creates. It's meant to be skin conditioning too, but i can't say i noticed the effect of that too much. I wouldn't pay £19 for a full sized product, but it was quite nice to use. This would probably be a nice gift for mums, aunts, grandmas etc. 

Next up is the Balance Me super moisturising hand cream, which was a full sized 30ml product. This has really been a Godsend for me this month, i love hand creams at the best of times, but this has really cleared up my dry skin and horrible scabs on the palms of my hands. I get real problems where my hands get quite itchy and pussy, but this has really helped! I would probably buy this size again, it's absolutely perfect to chuck in the handbag. It really is a lovely rich consistency with a pleasant floral scent. If you're interested, it also is the winner of the beauty insiders choice.

The next full sized product we received were the "Let's Go" lashes in "flirt." Now, i am a little bit disappointed to get yet more false eyelashes, but these are different to any that i've tried before because they're varied thickness, almost looking a bit stripy is the only way i can describe it! Anyway, i haven't tried these out yet because i still have so many other's to get through! But at least these come with glue which is always a bonus. Let me know if you've tried these and what you think of them, they retail at £8.95 (bit pricey?).

The Ginvera green tea nude cover BB cream was the bonus product this month coming in a small sachet for one use. It's supposed to contain antioxidants that fight against radical damage and prevent fine lines. When i used this, I didn't notice these effects probably because it was just the one use, but it was pleasant to apply. The consistency was a bit strange because it's quite runny! But i really liked the sheer coverage it gave me, and I love that it has SPF 30 so it's perfect for the summer to wear under a light foundation. A full sized product of this retails at £20.00.

This perfume sample was sent as a sort of celebration for the Diamond Jubilee, which is nice that She Said recognised that. It's the Yardley London Royal Diamond Eau de Toilette. It's supposedly a sparkling, sweet and floral fragrance. Unfortunately i've really struggled to get the lid off.. (resorted to using my teeth and it went in my mouth. One word: icky.) Of what i have managed to sample, it definitely has notes of pear, it reminds me a lot of the smell of wine. I think it's quite a sophisticated scent, and very affordable retailing at £9.99.

Finally, one of my favourite samples in the box was the St. Tropez gradual tan everyday moisturiser. I have to say, I am a little bit disappointed to receive this in Medium/Dark when i'm clearly paler than Snow White! But I really love the St Tropez products and this is actually quite a decent sized sample. I've been applying this after i come out of the bath, hoping to give myself a bit of colour for the summer and slowly I am noticing a difference. However, this summer i will definitely be sticking to fake spray tans, i swear i am addicted to them! I will continue to use this product until it runs out because it is extremely moisturising on the skin, but if i were to repurchase i'd buy the lighter version. A full sized 200ml retails for £14.30.

What do you think of this month's She Said box? Did you receive a beauty box this month?
P.S *For all those who missed out with the Delilah Dust giveaway, I will be holding another exciting giveaway featuring The Accessory Stand launching this Monday!*


  1. I always find these posts quite interesting as I don't subscribe to one of these boxes myself. The St Tropez is definitely my fave out of those, now the summer is here I need a (fake) tan!

  7. Seems like you get a decent mix of products in these boxes even if not all of them are to your exact taste. The little ST Tropez addition makes this appeal to me ; I'd love to try a tan without committing to a full size load


  8. I'm always skeptical of beauty boxes, but this actually seems like a very nice selection of products with some reasonably sized samples.

  9. She Said Beauty seems quite good! I'll have to have a proper look into it!
