Review: The New Beauteco Box & 5 Boxes to GIVEAWAY!

Thursday, 16 May 2013

 beauteco Box* (£10 + P&P, link)

If you like the idea of beauty boxes, but get turned off by the 'random surprise' element each month, then this brand new box called beauteco will be right up your street.  Each month you can view the contents of three different box options and then simply choose which one you want to be sent.  More so, there's no minimum subscription, so you can cancel anytime or just order boxes as and when you want them.


I was kindly sent a box to review, and loved that it came in with minimal packaging (all of which is 100% recyclable).  Everything is packaged into a sturdy cardboard box and cushioned with paper, representing the 'eco' name which is attributed to the box.  There was a cute little card on top welcoming me to the box, which also doubles up as a menu detailing the contents and some exclusive discount codes for the brands included.


As I mentioned before, each month there are three different box options to choose from.  The options at the moment are quite similar (in that you'll currently receive some of the same products in each option), but I imagine as the box attracts more brands to work with, then the differences may become more varied.  Each box contains 5 products regardless of which option you choose.

I went for Box 3 which contains the following products:-

Anatomicals Don't Just Clean It Woman, Scrub It Body Scrub (full size 200ml, RRP £3.49)
I've never tried anything from Anatomicals before, but I've seen their bright, eye catching packaging around on many blogs.  This body scrub has SLS in it, but I'll give it a go as it smells very fruity!

Anatomicals Help The Paw Vitamin Rich Hand Cream (full size 100ml, RRP £3)
I'm addicted to hand creams so I'm always pleased to have a new one to try out, and like the body scrub, this smells good.

Dr Bragi Age Management Moisturiser (5ml sample, full size 60ml for £120)
This is one high-end moisturiser!  I'm almost too scared to give it to my mum in case she falls in love with it!

Mitchell & Peach English Growers Body Cream (50ml travel size, full size 180ml for £36)
I've tried the body wash in the same flavour as this a while ago and I wasn't too taken with it.  I will try it out though as I'm interested to see what the formula is like and I'm happy that it's a natural and organic product.

Melvita Rose Cleansing Oil (35ml travel size, full size 200ml for £15)
This is the one I'm most excited about because I just love anything to do with rose and cleansing oils in general.  Also doubles up as a make-up remover which makes it perfect for the old weekend travel bag.

Summary
I really like the concept of seeing what's going to be in the box and getting to choose which one you'd like.  I also like how all the products in this one have been really good sizes (two full size products and no sachets, yay!) and that there are no perfume samples.  I'm hoping that beauteco attracts more brands, and perhaps develops more on it's eco namesake by including more natural and organic products (creating a box option just for those would definitely appeal to me!).
