A Beautiful World A/W '15 Sampler Box

I broke my spending ban after 71 days (yes, really) and picked up the a beautiful world A/W '15 Sampler Box (£20 plus £3.95 P&P with next day delivery). 

I just couldn't resist! See my thoughts on previous boxes - S/S '15A/W '14S/S '14 and A/W '13.



The first thing which jumped out at me was new brand to a beautiful world - Youth to the People Kale+Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Cleanser (1oz) straight from California which I'm really looking forward to testing out. Watch this space for a review!

Next up, two Indie Lee minis - I'm already a fan of Squalane Facial Oil - see my review here*. So I'm really looking forward to trying the CoQ-10 Toner sample.

The body deli Living Hair Shampoo & Conditioner are fantastic. See my review HERE* - I'm happy to see these lovely minis in the box.

Intensae Nail Lacquer (Muse) this is full size and worth £14.45. It's a lovely sparkly shade perfect for Christmas time.

PLANT GET IT ON Bodywash 30ml - I've already tried a couple of the full size washes from PLANT. This has a gorgeous scent with sandalwood, cedar and ginger. See my review of CALM DOWN here*

SW Basics Make Up Remover 30ml - I've not tried this product before. Love that this range uses as few ingredients as possible.

SW Basics Cocoa Lip Balm 4.5g Full size (£4) - I'm a huge fan of these lush lip balms and first reviewed them when the company was called Sprout - see my review here.

The item I'm not going to use is Helen Dowsley Ethically Sourced Handmade Lashes - I'm just not really a false lash fan. These ones are already lined up for someone though!

Did you get the box? What are your thoughts?

  1. I didn't realise S.W.Basics had changed their name. I tried the make up remover last night and really like it.

  3. Yes, Sandra, I am def going for the next box! I had a quick scout around their website last night and I'll have a longer look today. Kale is popping up on my radar more and more. I haven't used any skincare containing it, so keen to hear your thoughts on the Youth to the People, from both a product and new brand perspective. Karen mentioned the SW Basics makeup remover. Loving the sound of that. What an incredible box! Txx

  4. This is the first sampler box I have had from a beautiful world and at first glance I was a bit disappointed. I think it's because the size of the box is huge, but the contents are so small. I think if there had been a full size cleanser or something like that I would have been happier. On the plus side its an opportunity to experience number of different brands that I have never come across. I wish companies would stop putting fake eyelashes in their beauty boxes as I think I have a collection of about 10 now and I just never use them. Not sure if I will buy the next box when its available.

    1. I know what you mean last few boxes there has been a decent full size. I'm a sucker for trial sizes so am quite pleased with my box (well apart from the lashes!) x

  5. I've waiting on my box to be redelivered this week - looks pretty good from what I've seen in everyone's posts so far! x
