Her Fashion Box - September 2013 (Feminine)

Her Fashion Box - September 2013

Her Fashion Box September - Accessories

Her Fashion Box September - Beauty Products

Her Fashion Box was an interesting box this month and I have mixed feelings about the contents.

Here's what I received...

Her Fashion Box Clutch
I like the idea of adding a clutch in here.  It's a good accesory item that mostly everyone would use.  Unfortunately I don't really like the style of this one.  Also the HFB magazine states that the value of this is $39.95 which considering it is 'Made in China' and the sequins are already moving around a lot I highly doubt.  I'd love to hear from anyone who would pay $40 for this clutch alone.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish x2 (Blue Freeze & Coral Crush)
Nail Polish is always something you'll hear me whinge about in beauty boxes.  It seems like a bit of a "filler" product that is always being included and more often than not they seem to be the colours that no one would buy (read... yuk).  These colours are quite nice though and I can see myself wearing the coral shade on my toes in Summer.  The dark blue will be given away to someone else.

LonVitalite Collagen Firming & Moisturising Face Mask
A hydrating sheet mask is always a nice product to receive.  I've seen this brand in another beauty box before but not this product and am looking forward to trying it out.

'The Brando' Silver plated ID bracelet
I feel really undecided about this bracelet, it's quite masculine looking so I think I'll be hesitant to wear it.

Designer Brands Kohl Eyeliner & Chubby Lip Crayon
I was really disappointed to see this included in Her Fashion Box this month.  Designer Brands is a budget brand that I've found to be consistently of very poor quality.  Her Fashion Box costs $40 a month to subscribe to and I don't expect to see $5 budget eyeliners in there.  Just saying.

Silver Plated 'White Hot' Ring
This ring is stunning but not something I personally would wear... also it doesn't fit any of my fingers and I can't seem to be able to make it smaller.

PureTan Pure Moisture Coconut Creme Body Scrub & Organic Extra Virgin 100% Coconut Oil
These two 15ml samples were happily received as I love anything with coconut oil in it.  I received two instead of one as a thankyou for filling out the survey for last month's box.

As you can tell I have quite a lot of negative things to say about the products I received this month.  The face mask and the coconut oil samples are probably the only 2 things I will use and enjoy although I might try some of the other things out.  

I will say though in fairness that this is to be expected with a subscription service like this.  I know for a fact that some people will love every item in this box and will use all of it and I could well be the only person who doesn't.  I've been a huge fan of Her Fashion Box right from the start and I still am.  I would still recommend signing up to a subscription but just keep in mind that every so often you'll get a box or a few products that just don't suit you.  The majority of the time however I'm sure you'll be impressed.  The main disappointment for me this month was the inclusion of such a budget brand - Designer Brands.

  1. At first glance the clutch looked good but that is such a shame about the sequins - can you write to them and ask if it's defective or old, and get it replaced?

  2. Hi! Long time reader, first time poster! I got the same box you did, right down to the accessory colour. I thought it was a pretty good box, but I'm huge on nail polish, so that could be why! Having used the DB kohl liner before too, I quite liked it, so seeing in the box was pretty good, but I can see where you're coming from!

    1. I've used a pencil from Designer Brands before and it was terrible so I guess I was expecting the same but this is slightly different so I guess I should at least give it a try :) Thanks for your comment x

  3. As I have always said it's only worth what your willing to pay for it and that clutch is not worth their RRP and no I wouldn't buy it lol......

    I am going to go look for something similiar though I have a Cadet Officer Function to go to in a few weeks and that would be ideal :o)

  4. Wow I love that clutch, it sucks the quality isn't up to far though :(

    1. It's not terrible quality but I just don't think it's $40 quality ya'no


  5. I like that you have been so honest about a lot of these items not suiting you this month. I have a Designer Brands lip liner that I like, hopefully you'll be surprised with the lip crayon. These boxes are a real gamble, but it's such fun anticipating the surprise.

    1. You're right - the surprise makes it worthwhile haha. I will have to give the Designer Brands products a try but I'm not holding out much hope - have used something from them before and it was terrible!!!

  6. It's a shame that you didn't like the contents as much! I actually really liked it, but then I like polish and makeup so this was a big tick. :) You might be right on the sequinned clutch but I won't be able to tell how it holds up until I take it out for a spin!



Feel free to comment or ask any questions. I would love to hear from you x
