Her Fashion Box - March 2013

I purchased "Her Fashion Box" about a month ago with their 50% coupon. I ended up paying $24.97 for it before cancelling my subscription since I'm currently jobless. Apparently, the monthly subscription prices has dropped from $49.95 to $39.95, which is still unaffordable for someone who's jobless :(

Before I go into what I received in my box, I'd like to take this opportunity to remark upon how amazing Her Fashion Box's customer service is! If you've been reading my last few posts, you'd know that I've recently moved houses over the weekend, and I contacted Her Fashion Box to see if they can change my postal address. I thought it might be a tat too late, as I sent the email off on the day that they dispatched the boxes. Kerry from Her Fashion Box got back to me so quickly and even managed to re-direct my box to a different postal address! Thanks so much Kerry!!!

There were three different styles to choose from upon subscription - Trendy, Classic and Feminine. It took me quite a while to choose between Classic and Feminine before settling on Feminine.

This is what I received in my Feminine Her Fashion Box:
I'm really impressed that they put all the information about each product in a magazine! The magazine not only contains information about each product, it also contains a coupon for makeup brushes, and pictures and information on how to wear the fashion items (including the ones from the other two boxes).

1. Master Makeup by Dean Nixon - Eyeshadow brush (RRP: $30.00)
According to the little magazine, this brush is "designed with tapered bristles, shaped to suit the contours of the eye allowing for easy and flawless application of eye shadow."

I'm going to take this as a sign to get my bum into gear, and learn to apply eyeshadow!

2. Moxie Collection (RRP:$4.47)
In case you're curious, this box contains a range of Moxie tampons, pads and liners.

3. Circa Home Everyday Soap - Lilac & Orchid (RRP: $9.95)
This soap smells AMAZING. Although I don't use bar soaps, I like putting nice smelling ones in my wardrobe, so my clothes smell ubberly pretty!

4. Maybelline Colour Sensational high Shine Lip Gloss in Glisten Up Pink (RRP: $15.95)

"Lavish your lips with a molten hot glaze or super cool sheen with the wax free formula that guarantees an ultra-clear shine for a truly luminous lip. Infused with honey nectar, the uncompromised, truer colour is thanks to an innovative formula that combines undiluted pigments for superior colour saturation with a luscious smooth feel."
I'm so happy to have received a shade that I would actually use!

5. Redken Diamond Oil Deep Facets - 30ml (RRP: $35.50 for 250ml), Conditioner - 30ml (RRP: $22.95 for 250ml), and Shampoo - 50ml (RRP: $22.95 for 300ml)
"Redken's NEW Diamond Oil's unique range of care and silicone-free oil treatments are the first of its kind to provide ultimate shine and actually strengthen hair. The Shine Strong Complex with the strengthening power of Redken's Interlock Protein Network technology penetrates hair with nourishing oils that reinforce hair strands and intensify shine."

I love Redken products, and am so happy to have received these new products in my box, as the Diamond Oil range sounds perfect for my weak, chemically damaged hair. 

6. Gold collar necklace
"This feminine necklace is perfect for day to night, giving any outfit a feminine pop of sophistication or playfullness. Team with pretty pastels, perfect prints or lace pieces and complete the look with natural makeup and a pastel pink lip for instant romanticism."

To be honest, I don't normally go for these kind of necklaces. I'm one of those lazy people who do not remove their jewellery... ever. I always have my silver tiffany and co necklace and bracelets on unless I'm un-tarnishing them. But after looking at the pictures in the magazine of models wearing this necklace, I'm inspired give it a go!

7. Ribbon Hairtie
This is an extra gift from Her Fashion Box for being one of the first to subscribe. I LOVE this hair tie! In the magazine, there's a model who is wearing this hair tie in a messy fish braid, and I love how feminine that look is. Can't wait to give it a go!

Overall, I'm so incredibly impressed with Her Fashion Box. I'm going to try scrimp and save to re-subscribe. I MIGHT be able to resubscribe for the next box after unsubscribing from Bellabo. Keep it up, Her Fashion Box! :)

Did you subscribe to Her Fashion Box? What did you get in your box? What are your thoughts?

  1. Oh wow I haven't seen the necklace in gold yet! I reckon it looks so much nicer than the silver one that everyone's been getting.

    I'm not jobless but $39.95/month is a lot for me to fork out so I've also cancelled my box.

    1. My necklace is faulty :( The clasp won't open but Kerry from Her Fashion Box is going to send me a replacement. Wonder if it's a silver or gold one.

  2. I got the trendy box and loved it! I do think $39.95 is alot though but if the quality continues I'll keep subscribed just because I don't buy myself accessories at all so it works out good for me :)

    I loved the accessories you got, they look so pretty.

    1. I don't buy accessories either! Her Fashion Box has definitely made a mark in the "beauty box" market.

  3. I bought the trendy box but the feminine box looks great as well! The collar looks so cute and the ribbon hair tie. I'm sort of wishing that I went for the feminine instead as I was also tossing between classic and feminine. I decided to go for trendy instead cause of my unexplainable love for spikes...

    1. hahaha fair enough. I don't think I can pull off spikes and neon colours, so trendy probably isn't the box for me.

  4. I really like that necklace :) I don't think I will subscribe though, it's a bit beyond my price range at the moment!

  5. I got the silver necklace, but gold is cute too!
    I think I like the feminine box the best, as it's just more "me" haha

  7. What a nice box you got! Love the fashion pieces.
    I think unsubscribing from bellabox and subbing to Her Fashion Box is a good idea!

    1. Thanks Sheri! Hopefully HFB keeps it up in choosing amazing products or it'll be a very expensive mistake.
