#GirlCrush Box – June 2017
Price of the Box: £20.00 plus free postage
No of Products: 9
After a very successful May edition and a line -up that was definitely going to be a tough one to beat, I decided to subscribe to #GirlCrush to see what their June box had to offer and oh my I was completely blown away and absolutely chuffed when I opened my box and quite literally had to look twice as I just couldn’t believe how jam packed my box was plus it was even better than last month which I wasn’t expecting at all! This showstopper of a box had me beaming from ear to ear showcasing an all-star line-up filled with beauty, fashion, stationary and lifestyle treats and every single item was full sized which is just incredible. The concept as a whole is certainly refreshing and inviting as they expose a host of beautiful and innovative brands created by women which is such a great way to get to know them a little better and recognise the amazing work they all do but and it’s going to a big but…from what I’ve seen from other customers via social media the contents vary hugely which is something that’s a major flaw in my opinion however I’m also mindful that they are still fairly new so I hope they take all feedback on board good and bad as this box certainly has the potential to be great one.
If you’re new to the #GirlCrush Box then it’s now a pay-as-you-go box as opposed to a monthly subscription and 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.
Here’s a very quick overview of what I received inside my June Box:
- The Salt Parlour Coffee and Coconut Salt & Sulphur Scrub – Full size 200g RRP £15.00
This scrub with a cellulite targeting boost of freshly ground, fairtrade coffee together with nourishing organic cold-pressed coconut oil and the high caffeine content promises to stimulate blood flow, target cellulite, stretch marks and troubled skin conditions, and the fragrance will definitely perk up your senses! It’s also natural, vegan, cruelty-free and is hand made.
- MIA Scalp Therapy Oil Treatment – Full size 100ml RRP £12.00
Encouraging hair growth and benefiting dry, itchy and irritated scalps, the Scalp Therapy Oil is a blend of 3 stimulating and hydrating ingredients to take care of your scalp. Castor Oil is a popular natural hair growth treatment while Peppermint Oil stimulates blood flow and adds a cooling sensation to calm the symptoms of a dry scalp. These oils are blended with Sweet Almond Oil to moisturise and add the essential fatty acids that hair loves.
- Feline Lashes: The Kitten Collection – RRP $21.67
These lashes give you a look as fluffy and sweet as the Ragdoll cat! The lashes are vegan and cruelty-free, hand-made and if you treat them with love they will last you up to 20 uses.
- Lou Lou Lips Lipstick in the shade Venus RRP $19.00 AUD
A Moisturising semi-matte lipstick in a deep red hue and is made with Limnanthes Alba Seed Oil which is small white flower traditionally found in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States and in some areas of California. Limnanthes Alba has excellent moisturising properties which are very good for dry sensitive skin. This oil adheres easily to the skin and does not easily disintegrate, meaning that moisturizing benefits last for hours after application.
- Cutisonic Facial Cleanser and Makeup Applicator – RRP £64.99
The award winning Cutisonic produces over 22,000 waves per minute (over 360 per second), almost twice the intensity of a normal face cleanser. These waves deep cleanse pores to rid the skin of excess oils and stimulate increased circulation. It uses a super-soft silicon sonic cleanser pad, suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin and a single pad can last for months, even with daily use. Cutisonic also doubles up as a make-up applicator and promises to apply liquid foundation very naturally and flawlessly.
- Kendall & Co Lime, Basil and Mandarin Candle – Travel Size RRP £10.00
An enticing mouthwatering medley with top notes of Sicilian lime, and zesty bergamot blend into a juicy heart bursting with ripe mandarins, aquatic white florals, peppery basil and caraway seeds. Base notes include soft velvety patchouli and sharp green vetivert.
- iDEAL of Sweden Port Laurent Marble Phone Case RRP £29.99
The Port Laurent marble has a black base and gold and blue highlights – It’s a truly stunning phone case!
- Sadler Jones x2 Luxury Notebooks – RRP £6.50
Made in the UK, these notebooks not only look the part but they also make great blog props! Each A5 notebook has 40 lined pages.
- Carmine Black bra and Thong Set RRP £26.00
This black bra and thong set has been designed with both comfort and luxurious elements in mind. The soft cotton cups helps to give a flattering fit with a simple structure. The two tone Carmine elastic gives the lingerie a casual feel perfect for festivals and summer wear.
Other than my main concern around the different variations from box to box, I personally was more than delighted with what I received on this occasion and last month so it will be interesting to see what July delivers but overall I was truly gobsmacked with the wealth of quality brands and value that came with this box not to mention that they’ve put all this together for only £20 a month which alone deserves a round of applause! Their June line-up which touched on an excellent area of beauty, fashion, stationary and lifestyle treats featured so many favourites and apart from the bra and thong set which turned out to be way too small, I don’t think there’s anything I won’t continue to make use out which is really promising. Another aspect that I loved is that this box introduces me to a host of under the radar brands and although their not that well-known they really do not compromise on the quality front and I’m definitely tempted to make some more cheeky purchases to support these amazing ladies! Overall, this was another well-curated and incredible value for money edition and all the products actually felt like true treats which in turn has encouraged me to buy the July edition – not that I needed convincing! I’m hoping to have a proper play with this lot over the weekend especially the Cationic which sounds amazing!
