She Said Beauty Box - August

Just a quick post about this month’s She Said Beauty Box which arrived on my doorstep this morning :) I’ve been getting beauty boxes for quite a while now but the excitement of getting a parcel full of beauty goodies each month still hasn’t worn off. So here’s a look at the products that were in the August box...
White Glo Whitening Toothpaste
I was a bit surprised to see toothpaste in my beauty box but I have wanted to try and whiten my teeth a bit so I am happy to give it a try. I can’t really say too much about it until I have used it a few times but I have my fingers crossed that it will make some sort of difference.
Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve
I was a bit disappointed with this item as I recently got it free with Glamour magazine so now I have two! I’m not crazy about the smell or taste of this lip balm but I do suffer from dry lips so I’ve no doubt it will get used at some point.
Redken Colour Extended Radiant-10
I am always looking for products that will help improve the condition of my coloured hair and this spray promises to provide ten transformative benefits, including nourishing dry ends, improving manageability and reducing frizz, so I am interested to see how well it works.  I gave my hair a quick spritz of this earlier and I liked the smell of it but I’ll have to wait and see if it improves the condition of my hair at all.
Papier Poudre Rachel Powdered Paper 

I’ve never used blotting paper before but I do tend to get quite an oily t-zone so this item will be handy to keep in my handbag for touch ups when out and about. I like the fact that it leaves a subtle trace of powder and it’s not a product that I would have picked up myself so it will be nice to try something that’s a bit different for me.
Nails Inc Nail Polish
I really like the colour of this nail varnish but the bottle is so tiny it might take me a while to paint my nails with it! Having said that, I am still happy with the item and prefer it to the nail foils which were also available in some boxes.
Original Eau De Cologne
Unfortunately my little bottle of this was smashed on arrival and all the contents had leaked out so I can’t really comment on it :( I’ve been a bit unlucky with items in the beauty boxes getting broken in the post but I guess it’s just one of those things.
Overall I was quite happy with the August She Said box although it isn’t my favourite one so far. Of all the products I think my favourite is the Redken Colour Extend Spray and my least favourite is the Balance Me lip balm, mainly because I already got it for free with Glamour.
What did you guys think of this month’s She Said box? Are there any other beauty boxes out there that you would recommend trying?
Thanks for reading,


  1. Gr8 review I've also blogged on this box you got the exact same as me I think I will be using Redken and the Rose otto Lip Salve the most out of all items x

  2. I think I will use these two the most as well :) It's a shame the nail varnish isn't a bit bigger as I really like the colour and would use that item a lot too. x
