If you know my blog well, then you'll know I'm a bit of a sucker for a good subscription box. I've tried them all, but sadly due to lack of being a millionaire, I'm down to just one a month. All thanks to Instagram, I discovered a brand new box launching called Empire Box. They describe themselves as a beauty and lifestyle box and are pretty much the same concept as the other beauty boxes on the market.
I couldn't resist doing a once off order for the first box, just to see what it was like. The box costs $29.95 a month, which is a tad higher than the other boxes, so I had high expectations. Needless to say the packaging impressed me. But what about the products inside...
All of the products included. The website states that you get 5-6 samples, but the first box contained seven products and a gift card.
Lon Vitalite C4 Coconut Milk Mask
Everyone knows I'm a huge fan of Lon Vitalite masks. They have featured in pretty much every subscription box, so this is definitely not a unique product. In saying that, I'm definitely not complaining. These masks ain't cheap, so it's always nice to get a new one to add to my collection. You can read my in-depth review on this particular mask here.
Lon Vitalite Collagen Crystal Eye Mask
These are actually some of my favourite eye masks of all time. I always have a packet in my fridge - they're especially great if you're super tired or have a headache. You can read my in-depth review on these eye masks here.
OPI San Francisco Collection
I was actually really impressed to receive this in the box. It wasn't stated on the product card though, so I assume it was just a special inclusion for the launch box. OPI is a fairly deluxe and expensive brand, so you've definitely gotten more than your money's worth already. I don't have any full sized polishes from this collection yet, so I'm excited to try them.
OPI Avojuice in Jasmine
This is aptly named, which I found cute. I have tried Avojuice lotions in the past and was not all that impressed - but they were from eBay and who knows if they were even legit. I will give them another go and see what I think.
OPI Avoplex Revitalizing Hand Scrub
I had no idea this product even existed, so it'll be interesting to try out the sachet. I don't usually like getting sachet samples but I will actually be using this one, as I haven't seen it before.
Burberry Body Fragrance
This sounds like a super interesting fragrance, with top notes of green absinthe and peach. Hmmmm this sounds like it might be something I would actually buy.
Makeup Sponge Applicator
This wasn't included on the product card either, so I assume it was another bonus. I've tried a few of these from other brands, and I've really liked them, so it's always good to have another one in my collection.
Rouche Boutique $10 Gift Voucher
This is a great addition, as I love Rouche Boutique! Excuse me while I go spendin'!
Overall I think the first Empire Box was definitely a winner. This is a box to watch, and although I won't be staying subscribed purely just because I'm trying to save my money, I'll be keeping an eye on their social media as I expect great things.
