Review: Boudoir Prive September 2011 Box

Hi everyone!

I was recently sent the September Boudior Prive box. If you are unaware of what Boudior Prive is like it is basically like the Glossybox but it is £10 a month including postage and you receive 5 or 6 deluxe sample size products in a luxury box. You can also cancel at any time. 
The Boudoir Prive box itself is a gorgeous light pink sturdy box with a magnetized flap and the Boudoir Prive logo on the top. Housed inside is a hand written note (by none other than the gorgeous Vivianna from Vivianna Does Makeup who is their new intern!) which i think is a lovely personal touch! There is also a pink bow, black tissue paper and a leaflet with in depth information on each product you have received in the box. 

Inside was 6 sample sized products and i instantly recognised the Zoya nail polish! 
The box included: 
Colbert MD Nourish Eye Cream
A product ive never heard of which makes me think this box is more luxe than other boxes similar to this on the market. I am always on the look out for a good eye cream now that i am getting older so i am looking forward to giving this a whirl. A full size 15ml product of this eye cream retails for a whopping $110! Fingers crossed i dont fall in love with it as i cant afford to pay out that much to repurchase! 
 Zoya Nail Polish in 'Tao' 
This is the product i was most happy with seeing in my box! The colour is gorgeous and a perfect summer for the transition into Autumn. I also love the swatch plate of the Zoya smoke & mirrors collection which has definitely got me lusting after some of the other shades. This is a 7.5ml bottle which is half the size of a full size bottle (15ml) which retails for around £10. 
Mai Couture Blot and Bronze
A product i have never heard of or seen before! A blotting powder that is also a bronzer! I am so intrigued by this product & cant wait to try it!
Cargo Boogie Nights Eye Liner
I have most definitely heard of the brand cargo before but never tried anything from their range. The eye liner i received is a blue shimmery eyeliner which i would have never of dreamed of trying before although i am most definitely willing to give this a try instead of my usual black. 
 Tropic Skincare Body Smooth
I am always on the look out for a body exfoliator and again ive never heard of Tropic skincare.  A large 200ml size of the Tropic Skincare Body Smooth retails for £19.95. 
Agent Provocateur L'Agent
I am a fan of the original Agent Provocateur scent and the L'Agent is one that i hadnt tried before. This one doesnt dissapoint, it is much more musky than the original and a scent that would be suited more for an evening. This is a 1.5ml sample. 
Macadamia Hair Repair 
I have been intrigued by hair oils for a while and have already given the Macadamia hair oil a whirl! It is a good sample size in a glass bottle and smells lovely. I rubbed a little into my ends when my hair was damp and it definitely feels much smoother. This is a 10ml size bottle which retails for £5.75. 

There is no doubt in the fact that the Boudoir Prive box is worth the £10 posted price that they charge each month. The packaging is outstanding, i love the pale pink magnetized box which will make great storage! You already have your £10 back just from the Zoya polish and the Macadamia hair repair oil. I do love the element of surprise and the gift like package each month! 


  1. This sounds like a lovely box. I was debating about joining up to Boudoir Prive and leaving GlossyBox but its so hard!!! I don't think I can warrant having two boxes. There is also Feel Unique's box which I have only recently stumbled upon. You heard of this one? xxx

  2. I was really pleased with my box because when I saw people describing what was in it (before I got mine) I really hoped I'd get a more wearable colour eyeliner than silver (I got black :D) and the nail polish in Jem which I also got! xo

  3. I loved this months box! Excited to see what's in Octobers box :) xx

  4. really delighted with my sept box as well, was so thrilled with the Zoya as I have been dying to try this brand! Boudoir just seem like such nice people too. Think I'm keeping my subscription on for at least one more month as I was impressed this month. You have a lovely blog! :)

  5. im most jealous of the nail polish, it looks like a lovely colour :D

  6. i dont know why but its just something about you and your blog always brighten my day xxx

  8. Ooh I'd love to try this box, I've heard really good reviews of this compared to glossy box x

  9. Oooh i think it was a really good touch for them to add the nails with the polishes on - seen a few shades i have my eyes on :D xx

  10. I loved my Boudoir Prive box (review on my blog), got a different shade of nail polish and eyeliner to you though x

  11. The Tropic Skincare brand is made by the Susan from The Apprentice:) And I've never heard of this box before, might give it a go;)
