July Cohorted Beauty Box

Receiving the lovely Cohorted Beauty Box every month is such a treat especially when you know it will contain some exciting new products to try. I've been receiving the subscription beauty box for a good few months now and my thoughts are always positive and I'm always very impressed with the contents each month. 

The Cohorted Beauty Box will set you back just £35 per month and in return you'll receive a beautifully packaged box of beauty goodness, with a total value of around £80-£100. The box has previously contained brands such as NARS, Mac, TooFaced and Chanel as well as other brands that are less established. Lets find out exactly whats inside the July edition of the beauty box.

First of all we have the Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil in a sample size that is so super cute and will be perfect for travelling or on the go. This cleanser is enriched with ingredients such as Kukui Nut, Sunflower and Jojoba oils which sound like the perfect combination for a variation of skin types. Cleansing oil is a completely new thing to me so I am very keen to give this a go especially as I have heard such good things about this particular cleanser from other bloggers.

NARS Monoi Body Glow II is another oil product but this time its for your body and contains a Tiare Flower inside the bottle. The oil is designed to soak into the skin quickly yet still be incredibly hydrating and nourishing leaving you with silky soft skin and a wonderful fragrance. The scent of this particular oil is very refreshing and summery, it reminds me of cocktails slightly! 

Spotting the HD Brows Sculpt & Glow Palette was a very nice surprise considering there was also a HD Brows product featured in last months box. This little palette contains a cream contour shade and a beautiful sculpting shade which has a really lovely subtle gold undertone. The texture of these creams is lovely, they feel very lightweight and soft on the skin and they blend like a dream. I find a lot of the time cream products can be really difficult to use however these are simply lovely. The contour shade is quite intense and dark but with a controlled light hand and a little patience you can achieve such a beautiful look on the skin. 

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Blending Sponge is so cute and its in my favourite colour! The sponge is latex free and is infused with Vitamin E which I absolutely love and can actually tell this when you're using the sponge. I have been using this sponge damp and the results have been really wonderful, the sponge almost doubles in size and has a really good bouncy texture to it. 

Lastly inside the July edition we have the Bellapierre Mineral Lipstick in Envy and the Bellapierre Waterproof Gel Lip Liner in Cinnamon which work together beautifully to create that staple nude lip. The lipstick is slightly more pink toned and lighter in shade but when using the lip liner with a light hand you can achieve a really structured and gorgeous look when you combine the two together. The formula of both the lipstick and lip liner is smooth, soft and buttery, I'd say they have a cream style finish once applied and set. I've not tried this brand before but I'm really impressed by just their lip products. 

Would you consider the Cohorted Beauty Box?
