May Her Fashion Box


This morning I received my May Her Fashion Box - which was the first subscription box to make it's way to me this month! As usual, it comes in a gorgeous chic black box which is slightly bigger than the other subscription boxes I receive! 


This month's fashion magazine. This month's issue has a lot of information about the goodies inside the box!


I also received an extra treat from Her Fashion Box for completing the April Survey. It's definitely a unique bracelet, but very simple which is good. Thanks Her Fashion Box!


All the goodies in this month's box!


On a side note, I love that they have incorporated their logo onto the jewellery pouches!


Feminine Necklace

I actually really love the look of this necklace! My only gripe is that it doesn't feel a whole lot expensive, it does feel a little on the cheap side. (I'm not complaining, I'm just saying don't expect huge quality with this one!) It does look really pretty though, and being that it's cheaper, it is a lot less heavy - which is always a good thing!


Feminine Leather Cuff

I also really like the look of this! I usually shy away from bracelets and cuffs, as most of them are too big for my tiny wrists - but every one I have received in Her Fashion Box has fit me perfectly! This one is really cute, and I love the gold detailing. This one definitely doesn't feel as cheap as the necklace.


Feminine Collar Pins

I love that we're seeing more fashion oriented items! I love the idea of these little collar pins! I'm a huge fan of collared shirts, so I'm always wearing them with a nice blazer, so this will go perfectly with my outfits. I was lucky enough to get the silver (there was also gold) with little pearl gems!


Ardell Accents Lashes

I absolutely love false lashes, but I'm terrible at applying them. The magazine gave a few helpful hints which I'm going to try out next time, so hopefully they will work/ I love the look of these lashes - they look long and luxurious but not over the top, so it will give a nice doll-like look! Definitely perfect for the feminine box!


Ardell Lash Grip for Strip Lashes

I'm kicking myself here, as I literally bought this exact product a few weeks ago in Priceline, and haven't even had a chance to try it out yet! I've heard good things, so I guess it's handy to have a backup. I do love the idea of giving a good lash adhesive with lashes - definitely handy!


Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush

I can't even tell you how many samples of this dry shampoo I've received, but it's nice to actually receive a full sized bottle! I don't usually use the Blush version of this, as I don't find it does a lot in terms of volume, but this is certainly handy to keep on hand. Dry shampoo is definitely a staple.


DB Cosmetics Pore Minimising Primer

I've been hearing a lot about DB at the moment. Don't quote me on this but I'm fairly certain the brand has relaunched recently, so I'm really interested in trying out their products. I did try an eyeliner a little while back and was thoroughly impressed, so I can't wait to see how this pore minimising primer goes!  


Polished London Nail Enamel in Portobello 
Can't say no to nail polish! Portobello is a gorgeous almost-pastel purple, so I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this colour. I have never heard of Polished London before, but they look like a nice brand, and promise to be "4 Free" polish - which is always a good thing.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this month's box. I know a lot of people weren't too happy with last month, and probably won't be all that happy with this months either (considering the price, I can see why some people feel this way) but I'm not all that fussed. I enjoyed this box a lot, and I'll get a lot of use out of the products! I think this month's box was pretty good value for money, so I'm definitely not complaining. I like to think that the more feedback we give, the better Her Fashion Box will become, so I'm sticking with them for another month to see what happens!

Have you received your Her Fashion Box yet? If so, what did you think?

  1. Still don't think I'll be signing up to this one, the cost of the box seems to be mostly due to the accessories which I'd rather pick out myself and the samples haven't been very impressive.

    I'm glad you liked this box though! It looks a lot better than the last!

    1. I agree.. every single box seems to have put it in at least once haha! I'm lucky I actually use it, or else I'd be upset! (Not really this scent but it won't NOT get used at least!)

  4. Wow this is such a big change from the previous box! I love the look of that cuff.
    Oh and I agree with Sheri! All the subscription boxes have put in at least one Batiste dry shampoo sample in their box!

  6. looks like they upped the ante a bit with this box - the reviews I saw from last months made the box look pathetic! think it's great they've included more than one fashion item.. although they always look a bit cheap! Not sure the $8 dry shampoo would excite me either - gee, sorry I'm being a bit of a negative Nancy aren't I lol! Nail polish was winner! :)

    1. Yeah that's true, last month didn't get a great reception. Haha and that's fair enough, you're entitled to your opinion whether it be negative or positive hehe :P

  7. The necklace is quite Gatsby-esque, shame it feels cheapy. The cuff looks like something I'd definitely wear :)

  10. wow that is a really great box! love the collar pins, I haven't come across them anywhere yet (though, i wasn't specifically looking out for them)

    The #318 ardell lashes are my favourite lashes ever! the best part is that because they are only 'half' lashes, they're less fiddly to apply! (I'm terrible at applying falsies haha)

    1. Yeah I've never seen the collar pins (at least not in Australia - I've heard you can get them easily enough overseas but eh) so it's a really cute addition!

      Oh my gosh they are SO pretty! I love half lashes - I'm terrible at applying too, don't worry!
