Cohorted Beauty Box (£19.99)
As soon as I heard about Cohorted releasing their first beauty box on Which Beauty Box UK’s blog I knew I had to get my hands on it. If you do not know what Cohorted is then they are a company that hosts weekly deals on high end beauty products every Monday at 6pm.
Unfortunately for you guys this box has sold out of the February edition with only 100 boxes that were available to purchase on the day. This beauty box offers what many do not, high end cult beauty products for a fantastic price of £19.99 a month. I headed over to Cohorted at 6pm when the box was released, I was literally refreshing for 30 mins to be able to purchase a box. There were major technical problems which was no surprise as they had launched their new website that day and their first ever beauty box. Though thankfully I managed to grab one and was super excited to see what was in it.
When I received the box I was amazed at the packaging, a gorgeous thick matte black carded box which also had a magnetised flap and black ribbon, it gave the feel and look of luxury before I even saw the contents.
First up in the box was the Korres Quercetin & Oak Eye Primer (£10.00), I was impressed with the packaging of this product, I am literally in love! It has a gorgeous dark brown metal lid which is a lovely touch to this product in my opinion. Whilst applying the primer it has a pale peach colour and feels really creamy, though whilst blending the primer in the feels powdery. I am forever battling with my eyeshadow and eyeliner creasing which is a huge pain in the butt! Though after using this product not only does it brighten my dark circles and my eyeshadow it makes it stay put for hours and crease free.
Next I received the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (£8) I have never tried anything from Bobbi Brown before so I was super excited when this product was included in the box. I am a sucker for mascara and this particular one delivers dramatically dark, stretched-out lashes. I absolutely adore the thick brush as it glides through every single lash adding lots of volume to them. I have also found that you can easily build layers until your desired look without your lashes being clumped together.
Another beauty cult that was included in the box was the Dolce & Gabbana Clarifying Lotion (£20.00), OH MY I was instantly in love and what’s better it is the full sized product. The stunning glass bottle and gold lid feels expensive and luxury. This clarifying lotion acts as a 3-in-1 it removes your make-up, dead skin whilst giving an exfoliating treatment! I am super excited to give this a whirl.
The fourth product that was in this Cohorted beauty box was the Skincare Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cleanser (£15). I really love my skincare products so I was really excited to try this out. This cleanser calms dry skin whilst removing any traces of dirt and makeup. It smells really fresh and lathers up great leaving my skin feeling super soft and dirt free. What is even better about this product is that it is free of any parabens, sulphates and phthalates.
Last but not least is the Benefit Ultra Plush Lipgloss Bella Bamba (£14.50), I have never been one for lipgloss I have always preferred lipstick but this smells amazing, I love the watermelon scent it is literally good enough to eat. I really like the packaging of Benefit’s products especially this one, it is really cute with the palm tree print. This lipbalm gives my lips a slight red tint and a glossy shine, what I like about this product it doesn’t feel thick and sticky it feels really nice to wear and is quite moisturising.
There you have it, Cohorted’s first cult beauty box and what a great box it is with the contents totalling £67.50. This beauty box is definitely my number 1 favourite of the couple I have tried out so far, it has offered cult beauty brands some being full sized and some nice sized samples at a great price of £19.99. I shall definitely have to get my hands on their March box.
Did you manage to grab Cohorted’s first box? What did you think?
