So July brings with it another well sought after beauty box from current beauty box royalty, Cohorted. I'm going to tell you right away my opinion so you can choose if you'd like to read on or just look at the pictures? 
Not for me! I didn't enjoy this box and was left displeased with the contents but please remember that it's simply my opinion and you may have loved July's box. We're all different with different tastes but please read on to find out why I'm being so harsh.

Cohorted started off with a bang. Like seriously they blew beauty boxes up and they've been so popular they have literally broken the internet or at least the Cohorted system several times, not to mention the many people left disappointed each month that they haven't been able to get a hold of one of the boxes and for good reason! The brands and contents inside were unbelievable and for such a reasonable price, £19.99

For me, the hiccup in the quality of boxes came last month when I posted my beauty box unboxing video and I wasn't all that taken with the contents, finding them to be quite repetitive and just generally disappointed with the box. I had already pre-ordered July so hoped that it would pick up again the following month but no, I'm afraid that I've been left more dissatisfied this month than last. 

The contents are in my opinion quite boring. My favourite item being the St Tropez tan although in all honestly I just don't get gradual tan, its like you start to build it up then shower it off? Yeah, not for me but this was the item that I was most excited for, the rest left me feeling a little meh. Nail polish when I don't use nail polish, Gucci Guilty shower gel which are the annoying extra's in perfume gift sets and finally a 'high end' makeup set? Not my cup of tea, I think I'd still reach for my Urban Decay over this any day.

Woo! That last paragraph was rough wasn't it? But it's how I feel and whilst I don't like to be so negative on the blog I'm afraid it's the truth. I appreciate that somebody who enjoys the contents will feel completely differently to myself and believe others may be incredibly happy with the goods, I can see this being a perfect box for teens this month or perhaps somebody just finding themselves starting to really enjoy beauty and trying out products. 

Am I expecting too much? Perhaps, but I think when standards have been set it's quite difficult to come down from them and have nobody notice. I feel I need to say something positive so that I'm not being way too critical but I'm struggling and can only hope that plenty of these boxes have found their way into hands of people who are going to enjoy them and cherish the contents. 

I apologise if I've upset anybody with my honesty and hopefully Cohorted will turn this around and bring out a more desirable box next month. After all, they need us to be honest so they know what needs to change or if things are going great then to keep them up! 

How did you feel about the contents of the July offering? Did you manage to pre-order August's box?

Lots of Love
