S File an She Said Beauty Box October

I was lucky enough to win a S File competiton on Twitter. Each Friday there is a competition. All I had to do was RT and I was enetered. At first I thought I had won just one of the S Files which I was over the moon about because I was already looking to pick one of these up.

When my parcel came there was a padded envelope AND a She Said Beauty Box boy was I chuffed! =]
I was even more pleased to see I received THREE S Files =D










I'm sure will have all heard about the S File they are really popular and I've seen them retailing in Sally's Salon stores not sure of the price. You may even own one =] The little keyring file which is cased within a rubber spring to stop it damaging glasses or phones when its in your handbag is not only useful but amazingly cute! It now is friends with my keys and Batiste mini hairbrush they look so cute together hehe =]

On to the She Said Beauty Box although I was pleased with last months box I had a bad feeling and unsubscribed, I'm actually glad I did. I infact have ended up winning the October month's box.

Here's what I got and what I thought:



Two Amy Child's perfume samples

Full size Cocoa Butter Formula

Myvitamin's Tablets

Cellnique Advanced Bio Renewal Masque

This little pot is not much bigger than the She Said Beauty Box logo AND its only half full

Biao - Rejuvenating Night Cream
B-liv Off Thos Heads
 Do I really need to say what I though of this box! If I had paid for this I really would have been very annoyed! Perfume samples and perfume sample PET HATES, I could pick up perfume samples from a fragrance shop and testers/sachets from local beauty shops. Then to make it all better you are given a masque which comes in this tiny pot not much bigger than the She Said Beauty logo which is half full I mean what use is that it wont even cover a baby's face! Two thing's I'd use are b-liv (tiny little sample again) or the vitamins. Beauty boxes are going down hill! If you see my review on the Glossybox for this month even that was nothing special I may consider cancelling that too the only one I've been best please with is the Jolie Box.

  1. I really think those beauty boxes are not worth the money,they give the tiny samples that you can't even use once properly,and are too hyped:( I like the S files and the Palmers body butter:)

    1. The beauty boxes used to be really good and now they are just a shame I haven't liked a single one this montg out of the 3 I am subscribed to, S file is great its designed to make shaping nails easier

  2. I am a bit over the beauty boxes myself and have dropped all my subscriptions except for one.

    I do love perfume samples because it's such an easy way to try out a new scent you might not have thought to try otherwise. Plus I slip them into my clutch purse whenever I go out so I have a tiny spray in my purse for touch ups at all times. In Australia, anyway, the sales staff are not always willing to hand out sample vials. :)

    Agree that the skincare sample was wayy too small to get good use out of. I haven't heard of s files but this looks interesting! Will look into it!

  3. Oh congrats on winning! The files look awesome, really need to get one! Meh, I subbed to glossy box for 2 boxes then gave up, I think these boxes are just too risky. I'd rather buy an item and know what I'm getting I think, too often the items are a big let down for how much you paid! xx

  5. Congrats on winning, love!! Those files really look nice!
    But the box.. I understand why you got annoyed! It has some things that are o-kay, but not fabulous or anything. Nothing worth being excited about.. Such a shame!!
