August Beauteco Box


 I’ve spoken about the Beauteco boxes before and if you want more info you can check out my first post here but the general gist is that every month you have 3 boxes to choose from in advance so you know what you’re getting and you pick the selection you prefer. Not only does this cut out receiving products you’re totally uninterested in but it should also stop the box envy that’s become so common month to month in the blogosphere.. win win!

This month I chose Menu 3 which included a Melvita Facial Spritz, Arran Aromatics Facial Wash S5 Serum to calm redness and a lip liner and lipstick from Lord & Berry which I’ve swatched for you below. I only wish they’d been a little more compatible, they work okay together but you know what I mean – could have been better.


They also included a voucher this month to pass along to a friend (or you guys in this case) with a code (FRIEND07) that will give you two additional products in your first box if you sign up online. If for no other reason than you get to see in advance what you’re getting and choose the box most appealing to you this is my favourite subscription service and if you want an idea of the brand selections they’ve had so far you can check out previous boxes here


My video review of this box will be up next week but in the mean time you can catch up on my review of the first box below

    Thanks for the lovely post! I really am in two minds about whether to sign up to this and cancel my Glossybox subscription. Ahh, decisions…

      cancelled mine over a year ago and only recently have they got my attention again but I know I will be disappointed so I’m staying away

    I’ve never ordered any beauty boxes but I need to change that, the worst thing is that there are so many of those I can’t decide! xx

      I have some major breakouts at the moment and didn’t even consider using it on them, thanks for the idea x

    I got the same choice as you and it really hasn’t disappointed in the least – I have used the serum too and am actually thinking of getting the full size one when the (generous) sample runs out. It is £44, but for that price I wouldn’t have chanced it. It has calmed a few horrible breakouts already on me which I am really happy about.

    I didn’t get a chance to do anything with the Lord and Berry stuff as my daughter squealed when she saw it and it was gone!

    Looking forwards to your review vid as there was one thing in there that I didn’t like so much personally and am intrigued to see if it is the same.
