Feelunique.com Beauty Box

Beauty boxes have created a huge hype on in the beauty blogging world and they most popular seem to be Glossy Box and Boudoir Prive both of which I have reviewed.

Today I am excited to blog about a box which doesn’t seem to be quite as spoken about but that really excites me and that is the feelunique.com Beauty Box. This post will not only talk about what I think of this box but will also compare it with previous beauty boxes I have received.

The first thing I realised as soon as I open the box it was packaged in was that this beauty box seems a little more grown up, unlike the other Beauty Boxes I have tried this is a sleek black one with purple writing and a little ribbon so that you can pull out the draw. If I were to subscribe with these I would love to use the boxes all stacked on top of each other as a little set of sleek black draws.

The Content:
Balm Balm 100% Organic tea Tree Face Balm
Di Palomo Wild Fig & Grape Enriching Hand & Nail Cream
Redken Quick Dry 18 mini
New CID Cosmetics Picture Perfect Kit
Ella Bache Creme Tomate Vitamin Radiance Cream

Since the actual box the product come in is slightly smaller it makes the box look far more exciting and full but in fact I think this is a very generous box! You receive two full size products the New CID Picture Perfect Kit which usually retails for over £20 but I can’t actually find this on the website which is a bit of a shame, leading me to think this may have been old stock and also a full size Balm Balm Tea Tree Face Balm worth £6.

The box then contains some generous samples the Redkin Hair Spray is sold on feelunique.com for £3.15 and is perfect if you want to try out a new more expensive hairspray or want a hairspray which is the perfect handbag size. My favourite product in the whole box and the one I think I will repurchase is the Di Palomo Wild Fig & Grape Enriching Hand & Nail Cream it smells divine and luckily the sample is a generous size and once again handbag friendly.

The other two samples are for Ella Bache Vitamin Radiance Cream which is a quite a pricey cream and you are given 15ml which I actually think is also a decent size amount especially of a luxury brand. The last sample which takes the total content of the box to six (they only say they give five, so this is an extra) is the Elle Saab perfume, this is just the standard perfume size which you can pick up in a department store but it does appear to just be a little extra and I think that the fact it comes in a box makes it a little more acceptable.

The theme of this box was Smooth & Sassy and the products are suppose to be 5 steps to make you beautiful in the new season. They also offer 10% off all brands featured in the beauty box on the feelunique.com website which I think is great especially as you can reorder all the products of one website.

Overall thoughts.
If I had to chose a Beauty Box this would be the one for me. I love the packaging it is generous in its samples  and event a few full size products. The mix between brands I have previously tired and those I haven’t previously tried has really impressed me and I would repurchase a few of the products. I am still not 100% convinced beauty boxes are for me as I rarely actually products which are actually sample sizes and they never quite included as much makeup as I would like (I would love a makeup box!). Saying that I will be considering subscribing to this box as an experience and to see if this beauty box hype is really for me or not.

The feelunique.com Beauty box is available here and you can chose to either subscribe for a month or the whole year for £9.95 a month

What do you think of this Beauty Box in comparison to others you have seen?

    This definitely looks like the best of all the Beauty Boxes I've seen! Going to sign up for one month and see how I go. Thanks for this! Feel Unique is such a great website!

    I've been debating whether or not to sign up to this box, and to be honest, I think I might just give them a try.

    {Deleted previous comment – got my words mixed up lol}

    Wow, so impressed with the amount of product you get for your money! Amazing! Still need to bite the bullet and try one of these beauty boxes! Great review xx

    This looks much more impressive than any of the other beauty boxes I've seen reviewed so far. If I get some spare cash maybe I will try this one!

    I've always preferred the look of Glossybox but this actually looks really good! The sizes of products look much better and the fact that you get 10% off online too makes it seem worth while 😀 x

    I actually tried to get this box however the website stated that October was fully subscribed which was a little disappointing so I opted for the Glossybox however will try again for this one in the near future – Becky x

    i'm not completly sold on any of the beauty boxes if im honest, i think althoug it is a good idea, i would be worried that there would be a month when i didnt like anything, and that £10 could have gone towards a product i really wanted. maybe i just need to take the plunge and try it out!

    I always get glossy box but the samples seem so much more generous with this one and it seems to be more make up which i love xx

    I've not subscribed to either glossy box or boudoir prive as I'm not from the UK but from all the reviews I've seen this looks like a really good deal. I might see if it is open internationally too!

    I ordered my Beauty Box last month so I'm waiting for mine and I'm relieved that it looks so good! I was assuming it'd be like Glossy Box which I'm not too fond of.

  11. 5th October 2011 / 7:31 pm

    its great that they send products in full size! The fig&grape sounds like it would smell lovely! x

  12. 5th October 2011 / 7:36 pm

    This box would definiately be more for me then the others 🙂 x

    This is my first look at a feel unique box review and i like it a lot! The samples are huge!! I really like the glossy box but I think i need to try this out now!

    I received my October box today and I must say that it has impressed me a lot more than the other beauty boxes. I think I'm going to cancel my Boudoir Prive subscription as I do like the Feel Unique beauty box a lot more! 😉

    I just got mine today and really odd that everything in mine is completely different to what is in yours. But I'm still really happy, I have lovely things like Crabtree and Evelyn Hand cream, TIGI Catwalk blowout balm, an Orly nail laquer and a Bliss face wash.
    Love the box it comes in too!
