Cohorted April 2016 Beauty Box Review


Hi Guys!

Cohorted’s latest box has just arrived on my doorstep and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in! I was excited to see a few new brands included this month –

  • MAC Patent Polish Lip Pencil in Look Lively, worth £17.50
  • Gold Elements Nail Care Kit, worth £29.49
  • Miss Patisserie Bath Melt, worth £3.99
  • The Body Shop White Musk Libertine EDT, worth £24.00
  • MDM Flow Lipstick in Panther, worth £18.00

Total value of box: £92.98.

Ok so on first glance, we have MAC in here, we have The Body Shop and a MDM Flow Lipstick – ooh! I can’t tell you how good it is to see some new brands this month!  So let’s start with MDM Flow… I remember first hearing about this brand a while ago from British Beauty Blogger (I think) and the brand was also mentioned in last months Cohorted leaflet.

MDM Flow is the brainchild of Florence Adepoju, a Scientist with a BSc (Hons) in Cosmetic Science, fusing her love of beauty with hip hop and street style. The high shine gold casing is striking and unusual, and MDM flow’s lipsticks come in an interesting range of bold and unusual shades. Panther is included in this box, it’s a vivid Barbie pink and I think I love it! Be warned this shade is super intense though, it’s definitely not for the faint hearted!

On the subject of lips, the MAC Patent Polish Lip Pencil is a lovely addition too – I must admit I doubt I’d pick this up if I were shopping at MAC myself, just because £17.50 is quite expensive for a glossy balm in my opinion. I’m very glad to find it in the box though. Shade Look Lively gives a sheer, baby pink balmy tint to the lips.

There’s also a Gold Elements Nail Care Kit – another brand I hadn’t heard of. A quick Google tells me that Gold Elements is a premium skincare brand, offering face and body ranges, as well as products for nails and gift sets. The Gold Elements Nail Care Kit includes a large 120ml tube of hand cream, cuticle oil, a block style nail buffer and a nail file. Again probably not products I’d choose myself, but all are very handy and will definitely get used.

Next is The Body Shop White Musk Libertine EDT, this is actually my first ever fragrance from the Body Shop – it’s a light and sweet musk, with notes of rose, honey and almond. This is a really nice, every day scent that is perfect for fans of musk fragrances.

And lastly the super sweet Miss Patisserie Bath Melt, complete in a pretty presentation box. This really looks good enough to eat! I’m looking forward to popping this into my next bath!

After last month’s slightly disappointing box, I think Cohorted have done a really good job here. Though all the products included aren’t completely up my street, this is just my personal preference, and I think most will be happy with this box. It’s great to see a mix of different brands this month too – The Body Shop is a safe bet as you can’t really go too wrong with their products, and I love that Cohorted have teamed up with MDM Flow, bringing a brand new and emerging brand to its customer base.

I’d love to hear what you think of this box? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
