Boudoir Prive Beauty Box

I hope you are all well and had a great weekend! 
I reviewed the Glossy Box few months ago and shared that although I thought it was a great idea I didn't think it was really for me. I still thought that I would give Beauty Boxes another go and decided to try another popular box by Boudoir Prive.
As soon as I opened the box I could see that although the idea of Beauty Boxes is the same they are also very different. With the Boudoir Prive box you pay £10 a month with free delivery and you receive 5-6 deluxe sample size product which can be either makeup, hair, skin, bodycare or fragrances. The subscription can be cancelled at any time with no cancellation fee, which is great if you are a little unsure if the service is for you!
Content of my September Box:
Tropic Skincare- Body Smooth
Agent Provocateur L'Agent
Macadamia Hair Repair
Colbert HD Nourish Eye Cream
Zoya Nail Polish
Cargo Cosmetics Boogie Nights Eye pencil
Mai Couture Blot & Bronze
Out of the seven products I received I only knew three of the brands so this would be a great way for me to get to know new brands. Every product is sample sized although some of the samples are very generous and all the brands are quite expensive. The favourite for me is the Zoya nail polish as I have never tried any, I don't mind that it is a smaller bottle as I usually just swatch nail polishes for the blog and then move on to the next colour. The Macadamia Hair Repair & the Colbert HD Nourish Eye Cream are probably the next two products which I will use, however I feel that although I will use them they aren't something I would necessarily pick up in a shop. I like the perfume sample as I don't usually have time to go to the department stores to pick my favourite perfume but this is something department stores freely giveaway and the size isn't very impressive either. I also really like that the Glossy Box offer money off codes if you do decide to repurchase the product.

Overall
I loved my September Beauty Box from Glossy Box so this one fell a little short of what I had hoped for but I think maybe a month and just one box isn't enough time to tell. The Glossy Box doesn't offer free P&P which means you do pay an extra few pounds and although they often include a stand out product not all the products are high end and aren't too expensive to buy yourself. I think that Boudoir Prive is perfect if you are the type of person that wants to try more high end products and would like to try some new brands.

What has your experience been with Beauty Boxes?
Would you also like me to show you my September Glossy Box and should I subscribe to one too see what I think in the long run?

  1. I think you should try other boxes. I would like to see what you received in your September Glossybox. I'll be getting my Glossy in October because I just signed for it and also I live in Germany. I like seeing how different boxes vary.
