OK. So theres the box. I am really happy with this. Sadly this box wont be available now to buy. They release boxes until they sell out and then it wont be available again, and you'll have to get the following box which may contain alternate items.
What you will notice is that delivery dates are like 6-8 weeks after you purchase, so you buy it, forget about it, and it turns up and it almost feels like a surprise (well, if you have a memory like mine it does!).
If you were totting up the total cost of the box in comparison to the amount i paid - it adds up to $161 (approx £100). Nice huh?
Don't know about you, but i'd rather pay a little bit extra to get one of these boxes, still get the surprise - but in a GOOD way, and get items that aren't widely available in the UK.....compared to paying £15 per month for a box that always disappoints in some degree, and has items that are just wrong for you, your skin tone...or samples that have a single use out of that you cant possibly predict if your skin would react well to it long term....hmmm...!
