SheSaidBeauty? More like 'SheSaysByeBye'...


I popped my Beauty Box cherry last month with SheSaidBeauty. I was completely in love with the whole concept; you do an online beauty profile and they send you samples that are catered specifically for you. I loved the box last month so I was really looking forward to finding out what products they were going to send me this month. Disappointed is not the word - after seeing the contents of the box I immediately logged onto their website and unsubscribed. I'm getting really mad just typing this out - ARGH!

I got a Sun Lotion (Green People) which retails for £17.95, it has got SPF 15 and accelerates your tan by 25%. Erm, I'm Asian, I have a permanent tan, why are you giving me this? I told you in the beauty profile the colour of skin. And, have you seen the weather? I thought it may be a good product for people who need protection in the sun and actually want a tan, but after reading the feedback reviews on this product on the site I can tell you that no one is particularly impressed with it. 

I got soap. I got SOAP?! It retails at £8.50...for SOAP?! It is a hefty size but it is nothing special...it is soap. Natio is also a cosmetic company, I would have preferred to try some make up than soap.

Some eyelashes. They retail at £6. They are okay.

Ew, ew, ew, ew, ew! I hate Kim Kardashian with a passion, and I hate this perfume even more. It smells so bad. It's sort of musky and really heavy. Why would you do this to me?! I would actually just like to point out that I don't hate this perfume because I hate Kim Kardashian, I mean I don't like Justin Beiber but I think his perfume is okay.

I was looking forward to trying this lip whip by Inika. They do cosmetics that are vegan and halal friendly and free of animal cruelty. These retail at £14.30 and I think they are the biggest rip off's in the world. It has a gloopy consistency, it left my lips greasy, it smells gross and it tastes awful. 

I also got some Snowberry samples of their skincare range. The samples were too small, they had a horrible consistency and they smelt awful! 

Is anyone else subscribed to SheSaysBeauty?
What were your thoughts?
What box would you recommend?


  1. I always umm and ahh about what box to subscribe to and I still haven't! I'm quite glad though as there hasn't been a single box I've loved!



    1. This month's Glossy Box looks like a good one to check out because it's their first birthday ~ so it should be a good one.

  2. What a disappointment! I've never signed up to any as I don't like the risk of wasting money on rubbish or things I'll never use, which I sometimes regret when I see some really good boxes, you've definitely confirmed my decision though xxx

  3. That's not a great box admittedly but isn't awful. I'd be disappointing too. This months She said box was wicked though.

    1. I guess it depends what kind of products you like getting in these boxes. I was very disappointed.
