To start with it was 'fruit and veg' boxes, for those healthy eaters too busy to get to the local supermarket. Then came more refined meals in a box, for those of us watching calories and not trusting our own cooking.
More recently it has been Beauty boxes. A great way to sample a selection of new beauty products, with the lovely advantage of a) the contents each month genuinely being a surprise and b) actually getting mail through the door, which, regardless of email, Twitter and Facebook, we all still get a kick out of.
But what if you fancy trying more than just beauty products? What if you want a bit of beauty and a bit of luxury foods and, well, just a bit of a luxury surprise.
Boxdelux has it covered. The June box arrived in a gorgeous black box, tissue paper-lined, with the following surprises:
Revitalash sample – worth £30
Ultrasun lip balm – worth £6
Ultrasun Factor 30 15ml – worth £2.85 (£19 per 100ml)
Aden Cosmetics Nail varnish – 3 pots in varying colours – all 3 are worth £7.50
Aden Cosmetics Lip Gloss - £6
Nakd Bar x 2 – 85p each so worth £1.70
We Are Tea tea bags x 2 – worth £2 together
Propercorn (varying flavours) – worth £1
I am looking forward to trying out the products over the next couple of weeks. Particularly those Nakd bars ( I am watching what I eat. Yes; really) and the Revitalash (I love big lashes!)
What they say
From beauty and fragrance, to confectionary, candles and soft drinks, Boxdelux aims to provide you with a new luxury experience each month. Working with brands such as Illuminum; whose White Gardenia fragrance Kate Middleton chose to wear on her wedding day, Teapigs, Premae Skincare, NUYU skin clinic, Nakd Bars and Alassala Argan Oil. Boxdelux is committed to providing a subscription service that allows you enjoy top products every month.
“The concept of Boxdelux was developed through noticing a gap in the market. There is a vast number of beauty and food subscriptions, but nothing that addresses the need to collaborate all aspects of luxury – which is where Boxdelux comes in!” Stated Holly Hutchinson, CEO of Boxdelux. “We have sourced many top products from new and established leading companies to give you an experience that no other subscription box currently offers.”
To maintain the exclusivity of the Boxdelux brand there will be a limited number of boxes available each month, and no repetition of products. Each product featured will be available to buy in the online shop for a limited period only. Upcoming boxes will also have specific themes: for example Boxdelux will be supporting Breast Cancer awareness with a percentage of the profits going to the charity.
And what do I say?
It looks like a great collection. Check out the website at http://www.box-delux.com for more information. I shall be reporting back in a couple of weeks with my full review of the actual products.
This box has been received free of charge for the purpose of honest review. Views are my own.
