i wasn't going to write this post mainly because there's going to be millions of them and millions of opinions flying around and also because of the whole "if you haven't got anything nice to say" thing. but.. whatever. if you follow me on twitter you'll probably already know that i'm really disappointed with the boudoir prive box and i've already cancelled my subscription. HERE'S WHY!
it came in a really lovely pink box and was packaged beautifully with ribbon and a hand written note, totally can't fault the service. and this is the contents.. now i don't entirely know what i was expecting, and to be honest i kind of forgot i even ordered it, so i haven't really been following any of their facebook clues or anything like that. i just think for a first box it could have been so much better.
jane iredale purelash extender and conditioner (the tiny thing with the gold lid), two samples of etat libre d'orange perfume, barbor hsr lifting extra firming cream, olavie antioxidant body butter, sachajuan hair repair, bloom green tea & white tea duo
the only decent thing really is the sachajuan hair repair, it's 100ml which retails for £11 anyway, so i'm not too bothered about the rest being a bit rubbish.. other than the fact boudoir prive claim to provide "five to six deluxe-sized samples" in every box.. and i don't know about you but i don't think two perfume samples which i could pick up in boots myself for free are anything special. (and it smells revolting, if anyone was wondering) the purelash extender sounds really interesting to me but i don't see how i'm going to be able to see if i like it or if it even works with the minuscule sample they've provided.
the babor cream although it's packaged in a decent sized box it is actually tiny too- conveniently they haven't said how much product it actually is though. but.. it's not a lot and by no means deluxe-sized. it does retail at £82 for 50ml so it's not really a surprise you don't get a lot. but erm, i think i'm going to give this to my mum anyway since it's an anti wrinkle cream, not really what i need at twenty three.
....and the tea. i literally don't even know what to say about that. when i opened it i was half drunk half hungover and had to question my sanity. did i really just receive tea in a 'beauty box'? REALLY? "keep your concentration levels high and your stress levels low throughout the day with these two delicious teas from blooms tea treatment collection" - COME ON. SERIOUSLY? what a load of rubbish.
but yeah, seriously disappointed with this. really interested in hearing other peoples opinions too, can anyone really be impressed with this?!
btw, i hate tea.
