She Said Beauty: The Hottest New Beauty Box in Town - Plus A Bit of News from Fluff and Fripperies!

By now, we're all familiar with the beauty box concept - essentially, beauty subscription services where you sign up to receive a surprise delivery of sample makeup and skincare products each month.
New to the market is She Said Beauty, which has just announced an extension of its service to Ireland. I was really impressed with the box I was sent, with three full sized makeup products - a hot pink Filthy Gorgeous nail polish, tinted lip balm by Mischa Barton and a pretty champagne shimmer powder from BellaPierre - along with a small tub of Face and Neck polisher from Bharti Vyas and two sets of sample sachets from Comfort Zone and Erno Laszlo. Oh, and a Lindt chocolate egg, too!
But with Feel Unique failing and Carmine being acquired by Glossybox, this is clearly a competitive market. So what sets She Said Beauty apart?

Well firstly, there's the Online Community. Set up a free account and in 60 seconds you can create your personal beauty profile, including a unique url - you can check mine out here - to review products, comment, interact with other members and more. There's also the Online Beauty Magazine, with daily articles from a range of contributors, from bloggers to industry heavyweights like the Beauty Director of Elle UK, Emma Strenner.

And here's my news: I'll also be writing regularly for the Beauty Magazine ( as well as daily here on Fluff and Fripperies and weekly on Beaut.ie)! You can check out my first piece, on the beauty of Irish seaweed products, here - I'd love to know what you think, and to hear your suggestions for the future.
She Said Beauty costs £9 (plus £2.95 p+p) - the Irish rate will be whatever the exchange rate is at that time.  If you're interested in checking it out you can sign up here - and to get 25% off the price of your first box, just enter SSB25OFF at the checkout.
So, are you already a beauty box subscriber? Like the idea of this one? Share your thoughts in the comments!
