The Beauteco Box || August

Hands up.. who likes a beauty box? I've read lots of blogs for a long time about different beauty boxes but I never really jumped on the bandwagon as, don't get me wrong I thought they looked great, but I also thought it seemed like you get quite a lot of the same type of items each month, which would result in a boring backlog of body lotions etc.  This was until I read about The Beauteco Box - the newest kid on the block!  Beaut ECO box is a clever play on words, as they are eco-friendly and use 100% recyclable materials in the packaging.  BONUS!

The newest members of the Beauty Box family stood out to me from the rest - mainly due to the fact that they have 3 different boxes to choose from each month from a set menu.  I really liked this idea, as it gives a personal choice and allows you to choose based on what you might fancy or even need that month.

You can unsubscribe at any time so you don't feel as though you are pressured into getting that month's box, and then opt back in whenever you like.  As soon as the newest boxes arrive onto the website, you get an email to inform you so you can pop along and choose which you would like.
You get 5 items each month, with 3 full size items and 2 sample sizes.  At £10 a box + £2.95 P&P I really don't think you can go wrong with this.  I know I won't be getting one every month as I won't need them, but if I see something that really catches me eye I will probably have a dabble.

I ordered my first box at the end of August after deliberating for most of the month over whether or not to try one! In the end I couldn't resist and I'm glad I did as I'm really excited about the new products on offer here.

So what did I get in this month's box?  I'm just adding pictures and descriptions as I haven't had chance to try them yet.

Arran Aromatics Lavender & Tea Tree Facial Gel Wash - RRP £12.95

Lord & Berry Intensity Lipstick in 'Peach Gleam'.  RRP £14.95

Description: Intensity is a satin finish lipstick that glides on silkily and hydrates lips. Though it delivers intense colour from the first sweep, Intensity's ultra soft, sensual texture is blissfully like a second skin.


Lord & Berry Kissproof Lip Colour Liner in 'Blossom' - RRP £7.50

Description: A long lasting yet creamy and soft lip pencil that is lightweight yet densely pigmented.  This water-resistant formula has nourishing properties and is soft enough to be used as a liner and a lipstick.

I'm still working out how I'm going to use this to be honest!  Maybe spray it onto a cotton pad and use it as a toner?
