COHORTED Beauty Box | October


Another month, another Cohorted unboxing, and this time it blew me away more than ever I think (although I do keep saying that each time..). When I see the postman arriving with this box, it feels like Christmas all over again, so if you love beauty then I do 100%  recommend you ask for a one year subscription as a present this festive season. Tip - do prepare yourself for the sinister looks the postman will give you when you get excited seeing him deliver it. 

Anyway, without any further due, here's what's inside! 


A nice, big jar of Dr. Botanicals Neroli & Shea Butter Body Nourishing Cream which caught my eye as I am familiar with the brand (and I love it). I tried this body cream a few times now and it was well needed as my skin has been feeling very dry. It applies easily, it melts nicely and it doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy, which is perfect for winter as I want to get dressed as soon and as quick as possible since it's cold. 
We do turn the heating on, but not until at least December as it can get expensive so a beauty product that gets quickly absorbed is always well appreciated around here. 



I even discovered a new brand: Paul Yacomine. I never heard of it before and at first I didn't even realise what these products were for (do I live under a rock?). I received the No.1 and No.3 of the Microfinish series of oils that are graded from medium to light and ultra light. They're supposed to condition, hydrate and add lustre to different types of hair or target different concerns. For example number 1 is for all hair types whilst number 3 is for heavier hair types. I also received the treatment oil which was my favourite product. It's a serum that contains ingredients such as geranium, argan oil, essential oils of rose and more - and it doesn't make your hair greasy but it protects it and repairs it. All in all a fabulous trio and with enough product to truly test this brand and see how you get on. 



Now, the star of the show was of course the Too Faced Light Filtering Photo Enhancing Powders palette. I have heard lots about it and I was getting quite anxious about trying it as soon as possible as apparently it's getting discontinued. It's currently on sale on the Too Faced site, so grab it whilst you can. This little gem is a great addition for women who like light and natural makeup as it's very subtle. This is not a highlighting palette by any means, more of a set of three setting/finishing powders that gives the skin a healthy glow and that pore-less look on selfies. What's worth saying is that I believe this palette is meant for fair to medium skin tones, as I doubt it will show up at all or look as good on darker women. It has mixed reviews on the internet so I do think that you really need to give it a go and see if it works for you, if you're curious. Personally I loved it. I mix all three shades for all over my face and set my eyes with Sunrise. My concealer looks flawless and it makes me look overall more awake. 


What did you think of this box then? Did any products stand out to you? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I've tried a few subscription beauty boxes before but not this one yet! Looks like the samples are fab though, will have to think about giving it a go.

  2. I love getting parcels from the postman. I wouldn't mind getting a subscription beauty box for Christmas but my only problem is that I don't seem to work through all the products fast enough so they just end up accumulating in cupboard! I do love the sound of the Dr Botanicals body cream :)

    1. There's certain ones that send smaller samples rather than full sized ones but you also don't have to rush and test/open everything straight away :) x
