She Said Beauty September Box

So the september box for she said beauty, was looking forward to the beauty boxes as they seemed to have turned a corner and with the fashion weeks and new season coming in we all hope that this reflects in the boxes.


So this month was a slight change to the colour of the box but no major changes.


So this months contents :
  • DHC Cleansing Oil - 30ml Sample Size
  • Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel- 15ml Sample
  • Collection 2000 Primer- 18ml Sample size
  • Collection 2000 Fixer- 18ml Sample size
  • Amie Spring clean cooling Mask -15ml Sachet
Bonus product- Popchips Original Flavour 23 g bag

So apologies first off i couldnt hep but dive into the pop chips as i was reading about the products. I will find a picture to post.
Well the products i was happy with and i definatly really wanted to try the collection 2000 as it looked very vamped up. So i took the primer and fixer to try the next day to see how that worked with the mineral makeup i use. Now the primer was like silk and i loved the feel it had on my skin plus how much easier it was to apply an even layer of my foundation. I have dry skin and i find i can get some chalky areas so i need a good primer. This didnt show any sign of dryness. So i was happy with that product.
Now after i applied all my makeup i had a go at using the Fixer, this was not as great as the primer. The spray was un-even and felt like parts of your face were spritzed with blobs of the fixer and others just left so i think its more a packaging error then a fault with the product.
Now ive used the DHC oil and its fab at removing heavy makeup. Plus i must say the ginerva Marvel gel is aswell. Its is a bit strange that it goes on very slick but then comes off like a peel and with it a layer of muck you never knew your face had. Leaves you feeling like your pores have had the MOT of all mot's.
Now with all this primer,fixer and then the marvel gel to clean your face you look at your box and the Amie mask is the welcome product that has your face whoopying like a ribena berry. So you can feel relaxed with a cuppa and a good movie , slap this face mask on and just enjoy the abiance of the moment.
So it was a well put together box with products you use one after the other and just feel like its a full experience of pampering without needing a spa.
