Her Fashion Box - March 2013 (The first one!)

I signed up for the "Her Fashion Box" around a month ago and I was heaps excited and sceptical (ha) about what it was going to be like.  I used a discount code to get it half price for $24.95 but I still felt like that was a lot to pay for a complete surprise.  What makes it unique compared to bellabox and lust have it is that it includes a fashion item each month and to be honest that's probably the part that interests me the least which is why I was pretty sceptical.

My box arrived today and I had already noticed a lot of blog posts, instagram pics and tweets that I'd managed to avoid looking at in detail as I wanted to savour the surprise.  There are three boxes to choose from - Classic, Feminine and Trendy.  I picked Feminine.

Here's what I got

It arrived in a bright pink outer box with this black box inside.  The packaging itself is eye-catching, professional and sturdy so they're winning with me already.

Redken Diamond Oil Shampoo, Conditioner & Treatment.  Redken is my favourite hair brand at the moment and I'm really looking forward to trying these products out.  The shampoo is in a 50ml bottle and both the conditioner and treatment are 30ml tubes.  I estimate I'll get 3 uses out of this which is a really great trial size.  Absolutely can't wait to use them.

Master Makeup Eyeshadow Brush - Putting any kind of brush or tool in a box is always going to be a winner.  I'm interested to try this and see how it is as it's a brand I've never heard of before.  RRP for the brush alone is $30

Maybelline Sensational Lipgloss in Glisten up Pink - Perfect colour to me and feels like a really nice lipgloss.  I'll definitely use this.

A box of feminine hygiene products.  I don't think I'll be doing a personal review of these items any time soon ha, but always handy to have around.

Circa Home - Lilac & Orchid Soap - Smells divine but I'm not a soap user.  I'll probably re-gift this.

A hairtie with a silver bow - very cute and as I've been wearing a pony-tail to work every day I'll be able to use this to glam it up a little

 A romantic collar necklace in Silver.  I'm not much of a jewellery person but this is actually really cute.  I may wear this but I'm undecided.

The box also included a very professional A5 sized magazine describing everything in the box.  This to me was one of the major points that makes this beauty box so much more professional than the others.  The magazine not only details whats in your box (and the others) it gives you tips and ideas on how to use them which is really great.

Overall I found this box to be well above the standard of other boxes, I love that the products I received were silver and not gold and hope that is a result of the form I filled in when I signed up and not a fluke.  I can only wonder wether the level of professionalism and quality of products will be kept up.  I'll wait to receive the next box before I make my decision.

If you'd like to sign up you can do so here at Her Fashion Box for $39.95 a month.
