BeauteCo May 2013*
Compared to other beauty boxes, BeauteCo has more of a natural slant. To make it more environmentally friendly, there's no fancy pink box or drawstring bag, instead the products are packed straight into the delivery box. Because of what I was used to, this was quite a surprise at first. However like most people, I really don't need any more beauty boxes, and the printed design, green tissue paper and pink bow still gives it that nice girly present feel.
BeauteCo May 2013:
Anatomicals body scrub
Anatomicals hand cream
Dr Bragi age management moisturiser
Mitchell & Peach body cream
Melvita cleansing oil rose
What really sets BeauteCo apart though, is the fact that you can see before purchasing and choose from 3 boxes each month. With other subscription services, it's always a bit of a risk, but because I choose this box myself, I knew exactly what I'd be getting and it's nice to be able to use all 5 samples. So far I'm really liking the Melvita cleansing oil and Anatomicals body scrub.
Product wise, I thought the samples were all really generous, and even though Anatomicals isn't a luxury brand, it's nice that they've included one or two full sized products too. This month the boxes were fairly similar (there were one or two star items that were in every box), however I think it's great that we finally get a choice, and hopefully over time, as the company expands, the boxes will become more varied too.
BeauteCo retails for £10 plus £2.95 P&P, available from beautecobox.co.uk
