She Said Beauty Box: November

WOWZERS! I'm going to start off by saying.. I'm SO chuffed with this months box! I was really disappointed last month, especially as it was my first box but this month I cannot stop telling Aaron how much I love it! Haha :)
So here is what I received..

I cannot help but click the link on the Email you get about having a sneak peak once the boxes have been sent/before you get them and apart from the night cream I hoped I got everything I actually got, yay!

So...? Rock'n'Roll Body Spray For Me, full size - 75ml: £1.99.

"Remember So...? They are fragrances close to our hearts and with the current revival in nostalgic scents these sprays were the first to make a welcome return to our dressing tables."

I remember when I was a teenager I loved the So...? body sprays so it brought back memories seeing a full size bottle in this months box. I'm really sorry but I'm rubbish at describing scents.. But it is really nice and girly!! :) If its anything like I remember, the smell doesn't hang around long but it's a great little product (with a funky design) to keep in your handbag and it's no effort at all to spray a couple times a day. Will be keeping this in my handbag and may even repurchase!

Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream, 5ml sample. Full size: 30ml, £14.95.

"This smoothing night cream, with oil from organically grown Rosa mosqueta seeds, aids the regeneration of the outer layer of the skin during the night."

As I said above and in my October box, I don't use night cream. However, I am willing to give this a go, why not! It smells quite strongly of roses (as you might have guessed!) and is a yellowy colour when it comes out but you cant see it once its rubbed in. I like the packaging, of course, it's bright pink! But I know I won't repurchase unless it performs a miracle!

Redken Smooth Lock Shampoo & Conditioner, 10ml samples. Full size shampoo: 300ml, £11.85. Full size conditioner: 250ml, £13.40.

"Smooth Lock Shampoo cleanses, refreshes and nourishes hair with smoothness while Smooth Lock Conditioner eases detangling and instantly helps improve manageability with frizz-free smoothness and luscious-looking shine."

I'm always happy to try different products on my hair, especially ones that claim to help with frizz and tangles! Having really thick hair might sound good to some but trust me it has it's down sides - like how it struggles to hold hairstyles - curls are a nightmare :( they drop almost straight away unless you drench it in extra hold mouse and hairspray but then it loses its natural look completely! And if you want to pin it, you need extra because its so heavy! - Even though I regularly get it thinned out when I get my hair done! :/ Anyway! Looking forward to trying these! :)

Makebelieve Enhance Luminize Skin Highlighter, full size: £7.50.

"Highlight cheeks and upper eyelids with this shimmering, celestial pink luminator."

I don't actually own a highlighter, is that bad/shocking?! I was so pleased to get this in my box for that exact reason. Although I don't wear make up every day (sometimes just a few times a month, not sure why cause I am quite good at it!?) I do like trying out different products and do like to make an effort when I do wear it. I've started trying to wear it more because I love the confidence it brings, I just hate having to take it off when I'm knackered, how lazy am I! I love the packaging, it feels very sturdy and I love the shade, can't wait to use it :)

Yardley Royal English Daisy Eau de Toilette, 1ml sample. Full size: 50ml, £9.99. 125ml, £14.95.

"An elegant dewy fresh, green floral fragrance, reminiscent of flower filled meadows in the spring sunshine."

A lot of people don't like receiving these in their beauty boxes but I am not one of those people. I think it's a great way to find new perfumes as you can try them out a couple of times and wear it properly before deciding. When you go into a shop, you tend to spray so many and what they smell like at first usually changes after an hour or so. The above quote describes the scent perfectly, its a very clean, fresh smell.. I don't think I would purchase this but if it was bought for me I would definitely use it without hesitation.

Collection Primed & Ready Smoothing Make-Up Primer - full size, 18ml: £5.99

"The Collection Primed & Ready Smoothing Make-Up Primer preps the skin, providing a beautiful base for easier make-up application and ensures your make-up remains intact throughout the day."

Again, I was really pleased to receive this in my box. I currently use a Gosh primer but it has almost run out and I've been looking at different ones to try so this turned up just in time! My mum uses a lot of Collection products and reckons they're good considering how well priced they are so I have high hopes for this little bottle.. I'll blame mum if not!? Haha :) It is clear and silicone looking, which I know some people don't like but that's what my Gosh one is like so I reckon I'll on well with it. Again, I like the packaging (pink, duh!) so yeah, can't wait to try this out!

SSB Treat: Murrays Manicure Matchbook Nail Files, full size: £1.99.

"We hope you love your SSB Treat as much as we do. These cute candy-striped miniature files are an absolute must for your handbag. If you are anything like us you will soon have a pack of these mini files in every bag for nail emergencies."

I used my last nail file up last week and have been meaning to pick up some more so again, these turned up just in time! They really are very mini, they make me feel like a giant! I love the fact that they're pink and being small, they're handy to keep on you - which I shall definitely be doing! You get 3 lots of 5 files but they break off (as you can see in the pic above) near the bottom so you could use the bottom bits too of course so these are well worth the money and I probably would repurchase these if I found them in a shop.

So there we have it, that is what She Said Beauty sent me this month and again I'm so, so pleased! I know they aren't tailoring boxes yet but aside from the night cream I really feel this would have fit my profile perfectly. Thank you SSB :)
