- Natio Lotus Soap (absent from photo)
- Inika Lip Whip
- The Vintage Cosmetic Company False Lashes
- Kim Kardashian Eu Da Parfum
- Green People Sun Lotion
- Snowberry 3 Sample Gift (Bonus)

Natio Lotus Soap Trio 
'A charming gift set of delicately fragrant soaps featuring all-natural Indian Attar perfumes, the mind calming and mood enhancing scents used during yoga.'
I'm not a soap user (more of a shower gel person) But my mum is LOVES her soap, especially nice smelling ones. So this went straight to her (hence not being in the photo) From what i can tell she loves it, i heard her telling the dog how nice it smelt, and it did smell nice. i think the set would make a gorgeous gift, the packaging is lovely and quite stylish, if i was a soap user I'd be more than happy with this. I also think a bar of soap is a nice change from things we normally get in beauty boxes.
Full Size £8.50 3x 150g

Inika Certified Vegan Lip Whip
'INIKA Certified Vegan Lip Whips are perfect for creating luscious polished lips the natural way. Our creamy formula glides on smoothly whilst delivering a whip of essential nutrients to keep your lips soft and kissable.'
I got this product in the colour apricot, which i love! i haven't seen what other colours people got, but i think apricot is perfect for me. The product is non-sticky (massive bonus) and has like a chocolate-orange scent. The colour is buildable, you can apply it thickly for a more opaque colour or blend it out for a more subtle sheen. Really liking this product.
Full Size £14.30 8ml

Inika Lip Whip 'Apricot'

The Vintage Cosmetic Company False Lashes
'If you're a girly girl and love all things vintage then you will love this new range of false lashes from The Vintage Cosmetics Company. With five styles to choose from, match the lashes to your personality.'
My lashes came in the style 'Kitty' I've only recently got into falsies so these will be a nice addition to my ever growing collection. The lashes are really soft, and i think with good application they could look quite natural, I've seen a couple of the other styles available and have not seen one i don't like. They are reusable and come with adhesive.
Full Size £6.00

Kim Kardashian Eau De Parfum
'A beautiful blend of feminine and sensual notes, the debut fragrance captures many sides of Kim's personality and glamorous style.'
Perfume is so hard to describe, but i found this information on the website; ' The Fragrance Has Floral top notes of mandarin, honeysuckle and orange blossom, while at the heart, pink jasmine, tuberose, sensual spices and lush gardenia, The last impression of tonka bean, jacaranda wood, vanilla orchid, sexy musk and creamy sandalwood'
The scent is very floral, almost a bit overwhelming is pretty strong. I'm not sure if its really for me, but I'll give it a try. I do like the packaging we got our sample in, a cute little rollerball 3ml sample bottle, I've never seen a perfume sample like that but i think its great.
Full Size £22.95 - £39.95 30ml, 50ml, 100ml

Green People SPF 15 with tan accelerator
'Natural and Organic SPF15 cover with a carob based tan accelerator, clinically proven to speed up your tan by 25%.'
If the sun ever comes out I'll definitely be using this, the lotion is really light and has a fresh lavender scent to it (the more beauty boxes i get the more I'm starting to like lavender) Its the perfect size (20ml) for just throwing in your handbag or beach bag. I shall look forward to summer, if it ever arrives to test this one out.
Full size £12.99/100ml £17.95/200ml

Snowberry 3 Sample gift (Bonus Item)
'Discover truly extraordinary skin care - a rich fusion of the purest and finest active ingredients from New Zealand and the remote places of the world.'
I love that every month we get a 'bonus' gift. These little sachets came in a cute little organza pouch. They are all 3ml, and we got, Nourishing Rich Day Cream, Bright Defence Night Cream and Intensive Renewal Face Serum. A nice little regime there, i always like trying new creams and stuff so i really look forward to trying them.
The only website i could find this product available on was
Nourishing Rich Day Cream £85.00/50ml
Bright Defence Night Cream £61.50/50ml
Intensive Renewal Face Serum £80.00/

I'm really liking She Said Beauty, Their boxes always seem to be quite 'realistic' (apart from the bonus gift this month) Its always thing you could afford to buy the full size product of it you really liked it. I don't feel bad about using up the whole sample, because its doesn't cost like £200+. But then that's also why i like GlossyBox because its the opposite end of the scale, they send things, that i would never purchase but its nice to try.
Another thing i like about SSB, the fact that everyone gets the same products, just maybe in different colours or styles. It keeps the peace haha.
I very much recommend She Said Beauty. 

What did you receive in your box?

Lots of Love
