QVC Beauty TILI 7-Piece Collection Review
This box came with an info sheet listing the products included and their ingredients. I wish more information about the products themselves was included, as I found myself googling almost all of them before using.
Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave-In Conditioning Spray, 0.75 oz – Estimated Value $3.97 (buy the 1.7 oz version for $9)
I have tried this before—I think it came in FabFitFun at some point? My hair likes to tangle no matter what products I put in it, but I always like trying to prevent it regardless. This is very lightweight and is packed with argan, coconut, and rosehip oils. It is so lightweight that I don’t notice much of a difference in my thick hair, but I think this would be great for fine to medium hair because it won’t weigh hair down while helping with shine and manageability.
ELEMIS Peptide Night Recovery Cream-Oil, 0.3 oz – Estimated Value $16.13 (Buy the full-size version for $53.75)
My first time trying Elemis was with the exfoliator in the Summer FabFitFun Box, and I absolutely loved it! It’s one of the best exfoliating skincare products I have ever used, so I was stoked to try this peptide cream. It really is a mix between a cream and oil—it’s white, and it has a milky consistency that sinks into skin quickly. I used this after trying the Tula pads, and I was very pleased with the results. I think it helped to soothe my redness quickly, and overall my skin felt hydrated and calm without feeling greasy.
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil, 0.15 oz – Estimated Value $4.80 (buy the .5 oz version for $16)
I have used this before and I am a fan! It is a great oil to use whenever you need an extra burst of hydration on your hair, skin, or nails. It can be used as a face moisturizer or hair oil, and it also nourishes your cuticles or any other skin that is dry and needs some love. This is a bit heavy of an oil for me to personally use on my oily skin, but I used a few drops on my dry lips and they felt better instantly. I also liked this as a cuticle oil, but be sure to only use a tiny bit otherwise your fingers will feel greasy for a few minutes.
Obliphica Seaberry Hair Serum, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $8.64 (Buy the 2.2 oz version for $38)
This hair serum is bright orange just like the packaging, and I am a happy camper because of it. I love using hair serums before braiding my curls into pigtail braids because I find it to be really nourishing to my hair strands while also cutting down frizz. This serum did just that, and it left my hair feeling soft and shiny without being greasy. I used three pumps for my full head, people without big, thick curls should probably only use one.
philosophy amazing grace shampoo, bath, and shower gel, 2 oz – Estimated Value $3.25 (buy the 16 oz version for $26)
I have tried philosophy’s shower gel before, and I have tried their amazing grace perfume, but this is the first time trying them as a single entity. I used this as a bubble bath. It didn’t create a ton of bubbles, but the water was delicately scented with the clean floral notes of the perfume. This is a very feminine scent I could see myself reaching for when I want to feel extra pretty.
These pads have a treatment on each side for maximum skin reviving. The white side is for dispersing the serum and natural plant fibers (you’ll notice some white bits left on your face after using this side that’s cotton!). The blue side is textured and it is the physical exfoliating side that works with the serum and plant fibers. This definitely made my skin tingle, so I decided to stick with the one-minute side of the one to two minutes recommended exfoliating. Immediately after using my skin was a bit red, but within a few hours it had calmed down. My current acne and acne scars looked noticeably smaller the next day, and I do think my overall skin looked brighter.
Tweezerman Slant Tweezers – Retail Value $23
The cost of the box plus shipping is exactly $23, so if you needed new tweezers you can basically consider the rest of the box as freebies. This is actually my first pair of Tweezermans, but I can see why they are a lot pricier than my cheap-o tweezers. They are slanted perfectly to reach the unruly eyebrow hair, and they grip well so I am not left trying to pluck the same hair five times. These are also built to last, so I am very pleased to now own an “investment” pair of tweezers, so to speak.
The Verdict: I think this QVC Beauty TILI was a great box! Getting the tweezers really makes the value seem worth it, as they retail for what the entire box plus shipping costs. I really love the Tula pads and the Elemis night oil, and I was happy to see try out the hair serum and get more argan oil. Value-wise, I calculated a total value of $66.67, which I think is great for the products included.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box cost $23 ($20 + $3 shipping), and I calculated a total value of $66.67. That means you are paying approximately the following per item:
- Briogeo: $1.37
- Elemis: $5.56
- Josie Maran: $1.66
- Obliphica: $2.98
- Philosophy: $1.12

- Tweezerman: $7.93
