May Her Fashion Box

May 2015 Her Fashion Box Review - Sweetaholic Beauty

Late last week I received my May Her Fashion Box; a great way to brighten up a crabby afternoon. I was looking forward to the May box as I had not seen any spoilers, so it was truly a surprise when I opened the box.

The theme for May is "Urban Underground."

All the goodies in this box. 

May 2015 Her Fashion Box Review - Sweetaholic Beauty

Her Fashion Box Cushion Cover

This was not mentioned in the book anywhere (at least nowhere I could find) so I'm guessing it was a bonus item. This is totally gorgeous and was really unexpected. I know they have a limited edition interiors box running at the moment so it may have been included to help promote that. Both my partner and I agreed that we liked the style, so it will be a very pretty addition to our home.

Her Fashion Box City Shade Sunglasses

These glasses are actually really pretty, but this was a bit of an odd inclusion for winter. Not that you don't need to wear your sunnies in winter, I suppose! These are a tad too big for my face though, so I'll more than likely pass them on to someone else.

Scrub for Two in Sugar Scrub
I love the name of this product! It's something special that you and your partner could use together, or separately, all while keeping your skin smooth like a baby! I received the sugar scrub, which is great as I do love sugar. The other two types were cocoa and coffee, both of which I would have been delighted with.


Nak*d For You Superfacial in Blushing Egyptian Bride

This particular mask needs to be mixed with a liquid of your choice; it says you can even mix it with yoghurt! I can't wait to try this mask out, it sounds absolutely amazing and the name just screams luxury.

Her Fashion Box Due South Necklace

This is a very pretty and delicate necklace. It's a really unique design, and is probably something I would wear, so I'm happy with this one.

HFB20 Nail Polish in Birthday Suit

This is a Her Fashion Box brand in a collaboration with a blogger. I really like the colour and it is definitely a shade I would pick for myself. I'm unsure about the quality just yet, as I haven't had a chance to try it out, but it does look promising.

Yerba Mate Le Merced Organic Tea
I'm not a huge tea person these days but I have been drinking it by the bucket load to try and get rid of this flu. As my partner is unwell, he has also been drinking a lot of tea, and practically ripped the box open to try this out straight away. He tried the original flavour and said it was amazing, and he's already called dibs on the other flavours.

-- 

This month's Her Fashion Box was lovely, but not as great as other boxes I have received in the past. I adored the homeware inclusion in this one and am seriously considering grabbing their Interiors Box, as I do love my homewares! 

Have you received your May Her Fashion Box yet? If so, what are your thoughts? Have you tried any of the above brands? Would you consider purchasing this box?

  6. HER FASHION BOX - BEWARE

    Late last year I subscribed to a subscription fashion box service - for $39.95 per month I was promised to receive a monthly box of fashion accessories and beauty products. And that's where the fun began.

    No boxes turned up. Contact to the company is either ignored or a generic "your box is currently being packed and will be posted at the end of this week" email- it was never posted. I cancelled my subscription and still got charged. Enquiries to their facebook page are hidden or deleted.
    I'm still trying to get my money back, but more importantly I don't want anyone else to fall prey to their unscrupulous business practices. As such I have set up the facebook page below. If you have had any dealings with Her Fashion Box please go to the page and comment.
    https://www.facebook.com/herfashionboxdonotsunscribe/

    Had problems with Her Fashion Box? Not received paid for boxes? Charged for a subscription that you cancelled? Have your enquiries to the company been ignore or you have received the “your boxes are being packed and will be sent at the end of the week” line? Have your comments been deleted or hidden? Please go to https://www.facebook.com/herfashionboxdonotsunscribe/ a page that we have set up to collate all the issues that customers have had with HFB, to pass on to the ACCC and Consumer Affairs to prevent future customers losing money also.

  8. Hi there - did you pay for your subscription or did you receive a complimentary box to review? As a paid subscriber I've had less than satisfactory dealings with Her Fashion Box. I subscribed in November 2015 and paid for both the November and December boxes - it's now mid February and I am still waiting.........I've sent numerous emails (to which I get a standard response of "your boxes are currently being packed and will be shipped late this week"), called, left messages, made inquiries and complaints on their facebook site (which were all deleted)...........all to no avail. At first I thought I was just unlucky but as I investigated further I found a trail of unhappy customers.

    Please go to https://facebook.com/herfashionboxdonotsubscribewhere you can see some of the complaints an issues.

    As a potential customer, go here http://productreview.com.au/p/her-fashion-box.html and the above facebook site to read some less than favourable reviews.As a vlogger looking to expand your brand - I would think very carefully about the businesses that you align yourself with as they reflect on you. And believe me, in my eyes, given my experience with Her Fashion Box, your association with them reflects very poorly on you.

  9. Thanks for your response Jasmine - I appreciate the time you took to respond and apologise for a comment that was completely disrespectful, given that I didn't take the time to read your disclosure policy and understand that you would have disclosed had you been gifted the subscription.
    Not a perfect defence, but I'm somewhat riled up by the positive reviews I am seeing by vloggers and bloggers about HFB when mine, and many others experience (including yours by the sounds of it!) are far from satisfactory. Unfortunately, I wrongly targeted you.

  10. Not a problem at all, I completely understand as I had similar experience with them by the end. This review is from mid-last year however so not exactly current, I'm sure not many people would be reading these ones. But I do understand. Good luck with getting your money back, I truly hope they do they right thing and refund their customers!

  11. I looked at the sunglasses and thought 'na not big enough for my face' LOL! My face is so big xD
