There’s a boatload of subscriptions on the market and certainly a hell of a lot more choice since I first discovered them so it’s hard to get really excited about new launches nowadays as they all seem to do the same thing but excitingly I randomly stumbled across #GirlCrush on Instagram who are fairly new to the subscription industry and they’ve come up with something fresh and inviting covering both beauty, fashion and lifestyle treats and wait for it…it’s championed by girl bosses from all around the world! Putting beautiful and innovative brands created by women in the spotlight you can expect to see some well-known and many undiscovered brands which is really positive as I think it’s a great way to recognise the amazing work they all do plus if you love discovering new finds then this box not only is a true treat with some of the items customised to your preferences but it’s also fantastic value for money too…I can’t believe how much they cram in for only £20.00 a month – it’s a complete steal!

#GirlCrush Box contains carefully curated luxury fashion, beauty and lifestyle products and you’ll also get to know the inspiring women behind the products, hence the name #GirlCrush – the aim is to have you crushing on both the products you receive and the girlies they were created by. Each month you can expect 8 high quality products sometimes worth up to £150! Every month they also donate 10% of their box sales profits to a women’s charity. 

The contents arrived inside a bag as opposed to a box and I really enjoyed rummaging through all the contents I honestly felt like a kid at Christmas! Also the company has offered my readers a pretty awesome discount code which you’ll find at the end of this post but it’s limited to the first 20 people who subscribe so you’ll need to be quick! 

Without further ramblings from me, here’s a very quick overview of what I received inside the May Edit:

  • Brush Perfect Set – RRP £30.00
    A  beautiful set of of four good quality make-up brushes.

 

  • amaki Rose Water Hydrating Mist Toner – Full size RRP $19.99 (£15.46)

    This Thermo Bottle (380 ml) consists of high quality bamboo and keeps your tea hot for up to six hours with an integrated tea strainer.

My Verdict

With so many beauty and lifestyle subscription boxes floating around, I’m delighted to have discovered the #girlcrush subscription, a fairly new box on the block whose mission is to fill our stash with beauty, lifestyle and fashion treats sourced from girl bosses and I’m pleased to report that my first ever introduction has certainly been a very positive one which in turn means I’ll be subscribing to their June edition! I think you’ll agree the selection and the amount of products on board is impeccable, fantastic value for money and the contents are very well-balanced to satisfy any beauty, fashion, and lifestyle cravings of the subscriber. For an unbelievable £20.00 a month, this edition came jam packed and admittedly I really enjoyed rummaging through the bag to find all the treats, I felt like a kid at Christmas but most of all this subscription put that fun and excitement back into a concept that’s become very saturated and samey so it was really refreshing to be introduced to a host of new brands and products. Overall, there’s so much to love about #girlcrush and other than the top which wasn’t my kind of style I think I’ll definitely be able to make use out of the remainder. One thing I’d like to mention is I’ve seen bloggers and subscribers receive different contents for this month’s edition which look equally just as good but please do bear that in mind if you do chose to press that subscribe button. There’s was no information card either so I’d love to see one inside next month’s edition as I struggled finding some of the items online! If you love receiving beauty and lifestyle surprises in the post then I highly recommend checking out #girlcrush – for only £20.00 you really can’t go wrong!

    Hello, will everyone receive the same content as you this month? I’m in love with ALL these items. And want every single of them!

    • Darija Paberzyte

      Also, would it be the exact same box when they ship it on the 15th of May? Or is it April box?

    • The contents do differ from what I’ve seen from other subscribers. Your first box will be June’s

  • Nicki

  • LJ

    Bought this box specifically because of this post on 5th May, they charged my card and I knew I would have to wait till 15th June for dispatch. I have heard nothing, had no emails. Checked their website and my account has been deleted along with my order number. I think this box was definitely too good to be true. Be very wary of this company.

    • Have you contacted them?

      • LJ

        Hi Jaina!

        I thought I’d give it a few days to see if anything happened. The next day I got an automatic shipping update and just received the box this morning. It was literally just a plain brown cardboard box (and a bit battered). There were 6 items inside, a white dress (which looks like something off little house on the prairie), a black bikini, a white skirt, some pink lace knickers, false eyelashes and 1 make up brush.

        The website is still saying my account and order doesn’t exist and I’ve had no email back from them regarding that issue.

        I’m not blaming this on you or anything, I read this blog religiously, I just wanted to let others know. I’ve seen so many amazing posts about this box and I was seriously looking forward to it, even though I had to wait 7 weeks from the order date. So I was quite disappointed when it finally arrived. Oh, well, I guess I’ll just try a different company 🙂

        • Oh no I’m so sorry to hear that. Having seen quite a few June boxes the line-ups are all very different which in my opinion let’s this box down although I am yet to see anyone apart from you who’s received so many clothing items which is odd. I would raise these concerns to the company.

          • LJ

            If I was trapped in a subscription I probably would but seeing as how each month is a one off, I’m just going to buy a box from elsewhere. I was hoping for a bit more variety, like some stationary and home ware, like I’ve seen in most boxes but I’ll just chalk this one up to bad luck.

            Thank you for replying though!

  • Sharon BB

    I got my box today. I received a white skirt which I actually like, a teeny black bikini, false eyelashes, face serum and scalp treatment. I actually liked most of the products bar the falsies and too small bikini!!! A bit disappointed as I would have liked a piece of jewelry and I only received 5 items and others seemed to have got more, but I don’t suppose one should be greedy!!!

    It’s great value for money (provided you receive useful items) and I will order again.

    LJ, I got an email off them a good few weeks ago explaining that they were changing things up and my subscription would be cancelled, so for future boxes I could order as and when. I had to click on the order link on the original order email to get my details as I also had problems logging in but I think they are going some teething problems as many websites do.

    I also received a flat iron with the code provided here (hurray, thanks again Jaina) but it wasn’t the one that was supposed to arrive. Instead of easilocks I got a kumari one. Still good quality but costs a fair bit less. I wonder if the others received a replacement?

    • Hi Sharon. You should have received the easilocks one. I’m going to contact them now as that’s not what I agreed with them.

      • Sharon BB

        Hi Jaina, I have heard back from them but unfortunately they don’t have any easilocks left, so they offered me a 50% refund. Thanks for trying though as its not your fault, and at the end of the day I have got a free pair of straightners so I really shouldn’t moan!!! 🙂

        • Thanks for letting me know. Really sorry you didn’t receive the ones you should have.

    • Hi Sharon. I’ve just messaged the lady, can you email her and let her know you’ve not received the correct straighteners please 🙂

      • Sharon BB

        Oh thanks Jaina, I’ll give them an email now 🙂

    • LJ

      Ah, I noticed the site looked different but I’ve no emails from them since I placed my order on 5th May, so was a bit perplexed.

  • Jaq Cassidy

    I subscribed last month – the box wasn’t bad for £20, but not as good as many I saw reviewed. This month I bought the surprise box and it was not good. I only got four products in it, one of which ( a necklace) was broken, in a tatty box. I emailed them, got a reply that I’d been sent six items – no, I hadn’t, that’s why I was emailing them – but the minimum is five. I got four. Totally unhelpful – I emailed them back and no reply. Hugely unprofessional attitude. Be aware, you might also get repeat products. I got a phone case in both boxes.

    I also read a review from someone who’d paid to create her own box, but didn’t get to choose and seems to have received a surprise box instead and was still charged 39.99.

    Maybe they’ve just been overwhelmed by the interest, but I won’t be going near them again.

  • Mark Trunbull

    Got an email from them on the 16th of June ( I subscribed five weeks ago) and they said that they had received notice that my box had been damaged in transit and another would be sent out by the 26th June.Not sure why it will take them so long to send me another box~ super rubbish customer service.Not sure what to expect now having read the other reviews on here……

  • Katarina Novotna

    Ordered 14th of May. Delivered 19th June :/
    And I was completely disappointed with this box.
    False eyelashes, which I will never use. Necklace too short, that it would fit to a cat not a normal person… And notes? Really? 4ml of Circell ABO +|- serum. Joking?

    My Little Box is much better than this.
