April Her Fashion Box


It's that time of month again when all the subscription boxes make their way to my front porch! This week my April Her Fashion Box arrived, and I was eager to see if they were able to top their first box. (You can see their first ever box here!)

I'm subscribed to the Feminine box, because I'm not Trendy whatsoever, and I thought that maybe Classic might be a little too plain for my tastes. 



This month's fashion magazine went through all of the items like usual, but in a lot more detail than other subscription boxes. A lot of bloggers are saying this is where the money is going, and they are probably right, but I do like the extra effort that's gone into making this box stand out.


Lace Cuff

I was delighted to see that I received the black cuff in my box. I noticed there were too variations floating around, a gold cuff and a black cuff. Gold isn't really my thing (I got lucky in the last box too and missed out on the gold collar necklace!) so I'm really happy to get black. It can be stretched slightly for those with bigger wrists, but this fit mine rather snugly!
The one thing I do notice about the jewellery is that the price is rather steep. Many people are comparing it to something you might find in Diva or Lovisa, and while I have to agree, I will note that a lot of higher end companies that legitimately do sell these kinds of things for big bucks, also don't always have great quality either!


Schick Hydro Silk Razor

While I'm happy to receive this, I will admit it's not the most exciting product that could have been included! I've never used Schick razors before so I'm really happy to give them a go, as this is something I use a lot! I also love that this is a full sized product!

 

Model Co Lipstick and Lipgloss Duo

Personally I find these kind of things slightly on the tacky side, as they are a bit of a novelty, however I really adore the colour of the lipstick! It's the perfect nude (as the name suggests) for my lips, so I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this. As for the lipgloss, I'm not sure how often I'll use it as I'm more a lipstick girl - but this will be perfect for trips or to even keep in my work bag for quick touch-ups! Nice to see another full sized product!


Model Co Black Eyeliner

Another full sized product! I've heard mixed reviews about this eyeliner. I'm not opposed to getting eyeliner (although I have so much of it already) as it always comes in handy! I'm wearing eyeliner constantly, touching it up constantly, so I'm always needing it! I love that this has a little sharpener on it also! I found the quality to be fine, so I'm not complaining!


Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam

If you read my blog regularly, you'll know that I am not a tanner. A little while ago I was doing some research on tanning products, and what the best tanning products that us pale girls should be using. I stumbled across a few reviews on Bondi Sands, and I was impressed! I had completely forgotten about the brand (as I didn't see it in Priceline, probably) until I reached into my Her Fashion Box and pulled it out. Thrilled to have also received it in light/medium, I think I'll actually be giving this tanning product a go! I also love that this is Australian made, and it's yet another full sized product!



Bondi Sands Self Tanning Mitt

In addition to the actual self tanner, we're also given a self tanning mitt! I lovely touch to add this, as I probably wouldn't have used the tanner itself if I didn't get a mitt, because it would be oh so much trouble for me to head down to the shops and buy one! (I'm being serious here, I am really not a tanner!) So I'm happy that it's all been laid out in front of me, ready to try, so I'll definitely be giving this a go. Another full sized product - we've hit a home run here, guys! No samples?!


Bonus Item - Redken All Soft ArganOil

I received this as a bonus item, as I filled out a survey about the very first box. I thought this was such a lovely touch for them to send out a bonus item to those who made the time and effort to fill out the survey! It's a lovely 30ml sample bottle, which is just enough for Argan Oil in my opinion! This will definitely be used! (For those of you who didn't get the bonus item, don't despair! Her Fashion Box will have another survey up and running soon for this box, so keep an eye out on their website and you might score an item next month!)

-- 

Overall, I'm fairly pleased with this box. I know some people were a little underwhelmed, especially considering their first box was such a hit. At first I was a little underwhelmed also, but when I looked at everything altogether and realised there were literally no samples (aside from the bonus item) I was pretty impressed. I think Her Fashion Box are doing a pretty good job at trying to please their subscribers, and I really hope they keep up the good work!

You can sign up for Her Fashion Box here, where you can also find a lot of information, competitions, and surveys!

  2. I think this cuff is probably my favourite out of all 3 bracelets they sent out this month, but still not something I'd actually wear. It's nice to finally see a nice review of this months box :) I'm not sold on the idea of paying $40 for a subscription box though.

    1. Me too, although I will actually wear this one :)
      I've been reading a lot of negative reviews on this box, but I know how hard the people setting these up work, so I hate being too negative... especially since this is only the second box!
      I do agree, it's a bit much, but we'll see how it goes I think!

    1. Me too, I'm really happy I got this feminine one! It's a bit of an expensive one, but so far I'm pretty pleased... no sample sized things, so, it's a good deal! A shame you can't afford it though :(

  4. You always get the best boxes! I'm starting to think the UK has some of the worst boxes (although they are alright). I'd be delighted to get a razor in my box as they're really expensive to buy here!

    1. Awww no, I think ours aren't as great as the ones in the US! Although this particular box is pretty good, as we got no sampled size products!
