Cohorted Beauty Box Review – October 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Cohorted Beauty Box is a luxe beauty subscription box from the UK – and they are now shipping worldwide!

FYI – this box arrived in a timely manner, I’m just super behind on some October/November reviews. Sorry!

This subscription comes in a box within a box, so the inner box is pristine and would be great to keep for storage:

Complete with ribbon!

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Subscription Box: Cohorted Beauty Box

The Cost: £35.00 + shipping for international customers (My total cost was £47.49 = $62.92 USD)

The Products: A mix of beauty + makeup items. (Cohorted hasn’t made any full-size guarantees, but from what I can tell you’ll receive at least a few full-size items each month.)

Ships to: UK and worldwide! (FYI – shipping is free to the UK but extra to other countries.)

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add Cohorted Beauty Box to your wishlist!

This booklet features details on all the brands included:

Now, on to the items!

Doucce Freematic Pro Palette in Natural – Retail Value $65

(Subscribers will either receive this in Smokey or Neutral.)

This set includes a mix of mattes and shimmers that pair well together. The pigment is great (best on the shimmers) and they blend well, too.

(Bottom row is mattes.) Here is everything swatched:

And the lipstick at the top of that swatched wrist is:

Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Color in Maya – FULL SIZE! Value $28

Subscribers were supposed to receive a Clarins Gloss Prodige or Urban Decay Eye liner, but I got this instead. I also got it last month, too, as a bonus gift for being a new subscriber, so I’m not sure what’s going on. I’m going to reach out to Cohorted to see what happened.

I love this formula! It’s creamy, moisturizing, and glides on so smoothly. The pigment is perfect for my lipstick preferences, too. (You can get medium to full coverage depending on how much you apply.)

The Innate Life Rose Hair Elixir – 10 ml Value $15

This oil blend is made from 15 organic oils, and it is designed to help with frizz, and add shine.

The rose scent is faint (which I prefer), and only a drop was all I needed to smooth out my hair.

Pixi Brow Tamer – .15 oz Value $7.90

This is a great sized sample (over half the full-size version.)

It provides light hold, and didn’t make my eyebrows stiff – it’s the perfect kind of brow gel for me.

Lancome Advanced Genifique – 10 ml total Value $20.59

I love Lancome skincare, so I was very happy to see double samples! This serum is a lightweight gel that absorbs instantly. It’s designed to improve skin texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sagginess, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, clarity, and skin tone, (Basically just all the things!)

 

 

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $136.49. I paid about $63 (including shipping to the US), and I’m happy with that value. Of course, this is an even better deal if you are in the UK and get free shipping. Once I figure out what happened with the Clarins/Urban Decay item, I’ll update this post, too.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, sorry again for being behind in posting this review late!

Value Breakdown: At $63 for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:

  • Eyeshadow Palette: $30.00
  • Lipstick: $12.92
  • Hair Oil: $6.92
  • Brow Gel: $3.65
  • Lancome Serum: $9.50

  1. Nothing looks like that much of a “discovery” to me although the products are nice and good quality. It’s too expensive for me right now.

  2. This is more than I care to spend on a beauty box, but that packaging is GORGEOUS.

  3. That’s the same exact palette and option we got in FFF right? I also remember getting the pixie brow gel in glossy box. Love Laura Mercier I just wish they offered things we didn’t have readily available here.

    • Looks like there are less colors in the FFF box yet the retail value on this one is much less than what is listed for the FFF pallet…

  4. I like the items but I feel like most of those brands (and some of the exact same items) come in US-based subscription boxes (so the shipping costs would be less). I am pretty sure I got that same hair elixir in Vegan Cuts (it worked really well for me).

    • I was just thinking the same thing. The pixie products are in so many boxes and that pallet is very similar to the one we just got from fab fit fun.
