Apologies for my poor photo, but even though it's the greyest, rain-soaked day we've had in a long time, I am desperate to get this up so you can get your hands on one of these blogger boxes before they sell out. The Curated Combination is taking a stand against lame subscription boxes that have a high ratio of tat to things you might actually use, and they're determined to deliver a monthly box of high-quality goodies. Their mission is to have mostly full-size items, no tatty samples, and to have a mixture of things that bloggers will actually want to review and write about. They're not necessarily a beauty box, this one happened to be, but I'm not complaining – mixed content boxes are only good if every type of item is fantastic.
You'll need to be a blogger to sign up for the box, and there's only thirty each month for sale, so get your order in quick each month. It's first come, first served, with no option for a rolling subscription. They say you don't have to blog about the box and it's contents, but I'm guessing that they will favour repeat buys from those who do. I'm pretty impressed with this box, not only did it arrive wrapped in cute rainbow washi tape that brightened my morning, but the items are either from brands I'm very pleased to see, or ones I've not heard of but greatly intrigue me. Particularly loving the full size Toni & Guy shampoo and conditioner and the Makeup Geek matte red lippy. I'm keen to try Bramley, an all-natural chemical-free brand. Their hand cream smells gorgeous, and will look great on the nightstand. The pre-cleansing balm from Ark also sounds interesting, and if it's good I'm glad I got such a mahoosive bottle! There's also a GOSH black kohl, (a girl can never have enough black eyeliner), and the mint-green and copper tote bag is adorable. The contents are definitely worth more than the box costs, and I have a feeling that the quality of these boxes is going to be consistently top notch.
The Curated Combination is £12.50 per box (inc p&p), and boxes ship on the 15th of each month. They very kindly gifted me this box.
