Cohorted Beauty Box | February 2015

Cohorted Beauty Box February 2015 Review

Cohorted Beauty Box February 2015 Review

I couldn't believe what I was reading the first time I heard about this! Really? A Beauty Box... from Cohorted!!

Let me explain... I love Beauty Boxes and I love Cohorted. Simple!

I've ordered a good amount of makeup from Cohorted now, they're amazing at introducing us to things we didn't even know we needed wanted until we seen that they had such a good discount on these items and not just any products for that matter but top brands that everyone knows and lusts after, think Dior, MAC, Urban Decay, Nars, Too Faced, Chanel. Yep the biggies!

So, what did the amazing Cohorted team choose to put in a Beauty Box after offering such amazing items for sale during cohorts? Naturally I was hoping for big brands, a selection of skincare and cosmetics and a mixture of full sizes and deluxe sample sizes... not to mention a pleasing price tag.

Did they manage to pull off a box that lived up to such high expectations? 

Take a peek inside and see...

Yes, Cohorted really pulled this one off. I remember last year when Look Fantasic announced they were launching a Beauty Box and it was huge, people were smitten and with what the box offered and the amazing selection of brands inside but can I just say now that Cohorted have just owned the Beauty Box world with this whopper of a box! Benefit, D&G? I'm afraid this will take some topping by others in the future.

So I've said it, personally I don't feel as though any other beauty box will be able to top what Cohorted have offered this month!
Although before I get too ahead of myself I need to mention that this is the first box and I think I should wait to judge just how good it really is after the release of future boxes.

February's Included:

Benefit Bella Bamba Lip Gloss *Full sized* £14.50
Woah, a full sized benefit product. Very impressive but even more impressive that it's not other Benefit sample mascara. A fun and high end make up item is the perfect way to start a box!

Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cleanser *Deluxe sample* £15.00
The second product is a cleanser. Not just any cleanser, but a Korres cleanser. It smells fresh and after giving it a try, does a really good job, a little goes very far and it leaves the skin feeling lovely and soft. I really like Korres for  their skincare so was pleased this brand was featured.

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara. *Deluxe sample*£8.00
My least favourite of the 5 products included simply because I have a favourite mascara and in my mind nothing else can touch it. It's handy for travel however and a good well known brand so still a great item to include!

Korres Quercetin & Oak Eye Primer *Full sized* £10.00
OK, all day long I've thought this was an eyeshadow primer so my thoughts were hmm, not bad but not super exciting however just now *roughly 8 hours later* and I've read the contents card and found it's actually a primer for the entire eye area so works for the under eye also for applying such as concealer! I've given this a try and I'm happy with the results, it brightens and I actually didn't bother applying concealer afterwards.

Dolce & Gabanna Clarifiying Lotion *Full sided* £20.00
Yes you read that right! No I'm not exaggerating! Dolce & Gabanna FULL sized... in a £19.99 box. Cohorted you are currently king of the Beauty Boxes! What a product to add, no wonder there was such a huge fuss about these boxes! The Clarifying Lotion itself is beautiful. In a frosted glass bottle it has a luxurious feel, smells fresh and lightly floral, and managed to wipe away the remainder of makeup once I'd used the Korres cleanser.

I don't think Cohorted could have offered a better box if they tried. It's raised the bars for all current and future Beauty Boxes and it's left me full of excitement with butterflies as to what will be in the March box.

My Cohorted Beauty Box Tip

Cohorted have recently launched a new website design which now unfortunately only offers free shipping with orders of £20.00 and over. If like myself your not a fan of paying delivery and you'd like to order future Beauty Boxes then here is a little tip for saving on the delivery charge.

Since the boxes sell out super quick, log into your Cohorted account hours before they are due to go on sale. Have a shop around and find yourself one of the many bargain products and add it to your bag, as we speak there are lipsticks currently costing £1.50 and liquid blushes for £1.99 both cheaper than the delivery charge. Not only is this an extra treat for yourself but by adding one of there items it brings your order total to over £20.00 and it's actually cheaper to buy a new lipstick then pay the £2.50 for postage.

BUT make sure this is in your basket while logged into your account, that way Cohorted will keep it in there and when the time comes that the Beauty Boxes are released you won't be wasting time in which they may all sell out and you get the all important free postage!

Overall I'm very impressed with the latest offering in terms of Beauty Boxes. It's offered a selection of makeup, skincare and impressive brands. Mostly full sized items meaning it's impressively good value for money.

Keep a look out for the next pre-order for Cohorted's beauty boxes on Twitter so you don't miss out as these sell out FAST!

What did everyone else think of Cohorted's first beauty box? Was everyone as impressed as me or did you not see what all the fuss was about?

Lots of Love
