Limited Edition 1st Boudoir Privé Box

Hey there you sweet dolls. I was so excited to receive my Limited Edition 1st Boudoir Privé box in the post. What would be inside? Was it better than the GlossyBox? So let me show you what I found inside the box.


As you can see the box is very similar to the design of the GlossyBox

The main difference between the two boxes is that the Boudoir Privé one has a flip top lid. It's still nice for storage, but I think it doesn't look as well put together. As you can see the front of the box is a little wider than the sides. A minor detail though.

Here is a close-up of the print inside the box

In the GlossyBox they have a GlossyBox logo sticker holding the tissue paper together that secures the products. That is very nice, but I think this mirror sticker is very cute idea. It also has the pink ribbon that ties around the tissue paper the same as the GlossyBox.

Here I have a lovely card with a personal message saying that they hope I enjoy the box which is lovely. Also, there is a description leaflet about the products which includes three tokens to give to friends so that they can receive a 1/2 price 1st box. I think that's a nice idea, but I think it would be even nicer if you received maybe an extra item or even box for each friend that you introduce as they will be making £10 each month from them if they subscribe.

This is the first product. It is the Olavie Antioxidant Body Butter. The leaflet says that Olavie are wine therapy specialists. Sounds good to me already, haa haa :) It claims your skin will be smooth, hydrated and refreshed. I have to say I love this product. It feels smooth, expensive, luxurious and has a wonderful aroma. It retails at £43.55 for 240ml. It sounds a lot, but for the amount of product you get it's pretty good. I have been using this every day since I received it and I am seriously am considering buying it.

Next up is the Jane Iredale PureLash Extender and Conditioner. I have only used this twice so far, but I think it's quite nice. It claims to encourage the growth of eyelashes and facilitate the application of mascara. It goes on the lashes white, which is easily covered up when you add your mascara. While using this I have just started using the Clinique High Impact Mascara. It was the sample I got some months ago with Glamour Magazine. I have found that this Iredale product helps that mascara to curl upwards a little more. I guess I would describe it as an eyelash primer. I have long eyelashes already, but I will continue to use this to see how it fairs for the conditioning side of it. This retails at £13.00 for 89ml. If this improves the way my mascara sits on my eyelashes and improves the condition of them I may consider buying this.

This product is the Sachajuan Conditioner. It says that it's suitable for all hair types and is great for untangling locks. You are meant to let it sit in your hair for up to 10 minutes and then rinse it off. This retails at £10.00 for 100ml/£20.00 for 250ml. I have not tried this product. I think my Mum will really appreciate this so I will let her give it go.

Here is the Bloom Green Tea & White Tea Duo. The leaflet says you should drink the green tea in the morning and the white tea at noon. It is meant to keep your concentration levels high and your stress levels low throughout the day. I will definitely try these as do drink herbal tea. I however am not sure about it's claims. I don't think there is any drink that will keep my concentration levels high and if I'm that stressed a tea isn't going to help me. I guess it goes back to the saying that is used a lot in stressful situations, 'a nice cup of tea will make you feel better'. These are £4.00 for a pack of 10 teabags. It does not say if these are a mixed pack?

This lovely is the Babor HSR Lifting Extra Firming Cream. It's claims are that it softens your skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, prevents wrinkles and firms facial contours. You are meant to apply it to a clean, cleansed face in an upward and outward motion. This retails at £82.00 for 50ml. This product feels amazing. It smoothed on nicely over my face. It feels like luxury and smells fantastic. I am just not sure that I could afford to buy this product on a regular basis which is a real shame as I love it. If it were half the retail price then I would probably give it a real thorough testing. It is a shame that this sample is so small. I do really like the packaging though. It has a really high end look to it.

These two sample perfumes are Etat Libre D'Orange in 'Like This' & 'Rien', paying tribute to Tilda Swinton. I really wish they had put the name of each perfume on the bottles as I have no idea which one is which after taking them out of the packaging. A little annoying. I did wear one at work this week and I really liked it. My friend even said it smelt lovely, but I have no idea which one it was? 'Like This' is £74.00 for 50ml and 'Rien' is £52.50 for 50ml. Now I have to say I was a little disappointed when I saw the size of these. I know they are meant to be sample size, but when I received my June GlossyBox Perfume it at least came in a cute little designed bottle Perles De Lalique Perfume

Overall I am pleased with my first box from Boudoir Privé. For £10 it is great. My loves are definitely the Olavie Antioxidant Body Butter and the Babor HSR Lifting Extra Firming Cream. I think the Jane Iredale PureLash Extender and Conditioner is very nice too. My only niggle is that the samples are quite small, but they are samples. I thought the card inside was a nice little personalised touch. I can't wait to see what Boudoir Privé come up with next month.

Have you signed up to Boudoir Privé or are you going to? Did you like your samples if you received this box?

Love to you all

  3. Hi Vicky! This is Veronica from Boudoir Prive. Thank you so much for doing this review of our first box! It is very engaging and quite interesting to read. I told the Directors about your suggestion of putting an extra item in the boxes of those who recommend a friend to sign-up! They loved it and are discussing the possibilities!

  4. @Veronica@BoudoirPrivé - It was a pleasure. Thank you for taking the time to read it. I am so happy that you liked my idea :)
