UNBOXING! July Tili Beauty Box
At last I am able to write this blog outside in the gorgeous summer sun! Relaxing on our new furniture with a very nice Lipton Peach Ice Tea!
Anyway I digress....what I am really here to talk about it the July Tili Beauty Box. Wow they just don't disappoint do they! Not only is this box only £20, available quarterly from www.qvcuk.com but it is such good value and has a great mix of products - skincare, hair-care, makeup!
I have done an un-boxing on my YT channel and you can check this out below, or keep reading for all the info!
The value of this box is over £119 which is amazing and there are 5 full size products which i love about this box.
First up is Tweak'd Dhatelo Restore Hydrating Treatment Balm (full size) which is a smoothing balm that can also double up as a blow dry balm for extra heat protection. It smells lovely and I am sure it is great but I am reluctant to try it out as I have tried quite a few hair treatments/products this year and I haven't yet found anything that beats my Redken Extreme Cat/Anti Snap combo. It is available at www.qvcuk.com and only has two reviews so far but they are good reviews and it has 5 stars!
Next product is Decleor Green Mandarin Sun Kissed Day Cream. This is a 15ml sample size which is a good size for trying it out. This cream will add a healthy glow to the skin with a subtle suits-all tint. It is packed with Hyaluronic Acid, beta-carotene and refreshing citrus oils. The full size product is £58 for 50ml, which is quite steep but it has 4.5 stars with reviews especially raving about the glow, even saying it is sunshine in a jar - sounds like a winner to me! I am really excited to try this one.
The next product is Benefit Hoola Bronzer, in an admittedly tiny 3g (!!) sample size. However I cannot sing the praises of this bronzer enough, it is one of my all time favourite products - not just bronzer but makeup product. I use this to bronze, contour and use as eyeshadow either on its own or as a transition shade. The great thing about Hoola is that it is now available in different shades for different skin tones. The full size Hoola is £25 so up there in price but you can also get a mini for £12. I 100% recommend you go and buy this!
Next up is Gym For Your Skin B-Hit Vitamin B Booster. I haven't heard of this brand before but this serum seems really nice and light, and absorbs quickly. This brand is all about "skin fitness" and using great products with great ingredients on the skin, and is Cruelty Free and Vegan Friendly. This serum will soothe parched skin and add a dewy glow with this hydrating formula, and has been developed to protect against free radicals and pollutants. This is a full size 30ml product and the RRP is £37.
Next up is one of my favourite items from this box and is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Highlighter in the shade Sparkler. This is only the second Tarte product I have tried but they are a really great brand with amazing products. They are only available through QVC in the UK though. This is a full size item and is RRP £22. This creamy, champagne-hued powder is perfect for a strobe effect highlight. It is a buildable formula for cheekbones and anywhere else you want to glow! I cannot wait to take this one on holiday with me, I think this is going to be a new makeup essential for me!
Next item is Neom Pulse Point Rollerball in Great Day. This scent is said to give you an uplift in your mood and make you feel in a bette mood. It has 100% natural fragrances for the mind and body. It will energise you mind and body with a zesty, revitalising Neom fragrance.
I am not sure if i totally believe that rolling this scent on my pulse points will improve my mood and make me feel energised - but I hope that I am surprised with this and that it does actually work. More to come on this in the future!! Full size product is £8.
Next up is The Ordinary AHA 30% BHA 2% Peeling Solution 30ml, full size. I have seen reviews on this product online a few times and they have not been that great, which surprised me at I really do love The Ordinary products and recommend them to friends all the time! This gentle yet effective formula can be added to skincare routine for gentle exfoliating once a week to help clear congestion and reveal a dewy glow. RRP is £6.30 which is amazing value.
Last but not least is this gorgeous Nails Inc Bright Ambition Gel Effect Nail Polish in Strictly Bikini (other shades in random selection - Not Invited which is a bright blue and It's 12pm Somewhere which is a bold purple). These are full size, with an RRP of £8. This says it is a vibrant orange but to me it is more of a neon pink, however it is really really nice and I am so glad I got this in the random selection. It will be perfect for my upcoming holiday!
This polish is formulated with an anti-fade and non-dulling technology, which I will definitely put to the test on holiday.
So all in all I am really happy with this box, as I always am with Tili Beauty Boxes - I have not yet been disappointed! I literally have not had a bad box from them, which is amazing! I do already have three Hoola's so I will probably pass this sample on to a friend as I don't need another one just yet. I highly highly recommend you give Tili Beauty Box a try if you like beauty subscription boxes - there is no subscription with this one so you can decide whether you want to get it each quarter, and you can always see what is in the box before you buy it.
The boxes are £20 each with free P&P, available at www.qvcuk.com
