This post, is a bit late! sadly my first box got lost somewhere along the way, but the people at SSB kindly sent me a new one! I even managed, to not look at any spoilers while i waited!
Yardley London, Royal Diamond Eau De Toilette;
This fragrance was bought out to celebrate the Queens diamond jubilee, The opening fragrance is pear & bergamot followed by notes of honey, the heart notes include a floral bouquet of rose, peony and lily of the valley. It also has a soft woody and vanilla base. I'm really loving this fragrance. I've said this before, when i got the peony sample in a beauty box, but Yardley has pleasantly surprised me every time. I also just assume, its going to be a really floral, old lady scent. My gran uses Yardley talc, and i just think the whole brand has an age bracket on it. But I'm slowly getting proved wrong.
Balance Me, Super Moisturising Hand Cream;
I'm not usually a massive hand cream user, but since spending the last 2 months, and the foreseeable 2 months on crutches, hand cream has been a godsend. I think with out it, my hands would resemble something made of leather. Crutches make them so sore. I also really love Balance Me products, I'm currently using the eye cream and face cream. I especially love the smell of the eye cream. This hand cream is pretty non-greasy (always a bonus) and smells of lavender. Its also a handy 30ml size!
Elemis, Tranquil Touch Indulgent Bath Elixir;
I cant stop smelling this, I can't decide whether i like it or not. It has a familiar scent to it, slightly like aftershave, though i think that might be the Cedarwood. It also contains Patchouli and Vetivert Leaves, i have no idea what they are?! My mum had a wee sniff, and said it smells like 'boy washing stuff' Its quite a nice smell, sort of comforting.
St Tropez, Gradual Tan Everyday Body Moisturiser;
This is probably the product i was most excited about. I've been wanting to try this for ages, as I've heard so many good things about it. It has quite a strong perfume smell, which i much prefer as that biscuitty fake tan smell actually makes me feel a bit nauseous! The product is light, and none greasy and sinks in quickly, which is always a bonus. If the sun doesn't appear while I'm on holiday, I'll definitely be using this when i get home or while I'm there!
Lets Go; Lashes
Got these in the last Glossy Box, so not overly impressed. My lash collection has grown a considerable amount since receiving beauty boxes! Hopefully, the companies will take a hint, and stop putting them in. There's only so many pairs of lashes a girl needs, surely?
Still I'm sure they'll get used, but for now they are joining my stock pile.
Ginerva, Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream;
This is an actual Asian BB cream, its enriched with Green Tea, Ginseng, Chinese Angelica and Hyaluronic Acid. It has SPF 30 in it, which is really good! Though, I do find stuff with a higher factor in, either feel filmy, or have a whitish hue to it. I'm hoping i don't fall in love with it, as its £20 for 25ml, so its a bit on the pricey side. But we shall see.
All in all, i think this is a really good box! She Said rarely disappoints if I'm honest. They usually have a great mix of products and everyone gets the same box! My only little problem is, lashes. PLEASE NO MORE haha.
what did you think of this months She Said Beauty Box?
Lots of Love
