Cohorted November Beauty Box - Black Box15:24
As a beauty lover I've tried out a fair few beauty subscription boxes and by far my favourite is the Cohorted Black Edition Beauty Box.
This isn't the cheapest beauty subscription box around and there are loads out there that are cheaper including Glossy Box and Birchbox both of which are both hugely popular, and just £10 a month to subscribe to.
The reason I like the offering from Cohorted over other boxes that are available is because typically you get really highly valued products, full sized products and items from great high end brands included.
Previously you could only try and get one of the limited number of boxes Cohorted put out each month, I managed to get one previously which I just loved. I got full sized products from the likes of Nars and The Balm which was so exciting.
The November box did not disappoint and I got some really amazing products, I haven't tried any of the below yet but just to let you know what I received:
A full sized palette with a mixture of mainly matte shades and 3/4 shimmer shades.
Nails Inc Polishes £11 Each
In the shades Chelsea Flower Show & Coleville Mews
A full sized palette with two correcting concealers, a mineral powder, tinted moisturiser and covering concealer.
A powder based treatment for under the eyes to reduce the appearance of fatigue.
Chloe Perfume Sample
A sample of the signature scent from Chloe, floral in smell with notes of Peony and Lychee.
As you can see for £35 I got a box with a value of over £100 which is great.
I only have two issues with the box this month - They had 'revealed' a product early (a Sigma Foundation Brush) which I had expected to receive. After reading tweets from subscribers wondering he same, I have now found out you either got this brush or the Cargo palette, obviously i'm not unhappy with my palette and I actually prefer it over having got the foundation brush but it felt misleading.
They have revealed a product already for the December box which I really hope will be in every box but now I'm not so sure.
They do state contents can vary (as do many subscription boxes) but they didn't make it clear that you may not get the 'revealed' product; it would've made more sense to reveal something like the Laura Mercier palette which it looks like everybody received.
secondly the box comes with a booklet which has details of all the information of products received. Sadly this is absolutely filled with spelling mistakes - something small, but I doubt that Laura Mercier would be happy to find out their headline title page screams - Laura Mercia, perhaps more care needs to be taken; particularly when this is one of the more premium boxes around, just a thought.
