Amazon beauty box - Review

Beauty boxes, I love them. I mean what's not to love? Regular mini-samples from exciting and emerging brands, and not having to leave the comfort of my own home to find these exclusive products.
Let's just take a few moments to appreciate the wonders of the Internet.
*silent applause*
#Amazonbeauty has just been released by Amazon, which I'm hoping will turn into something a little more regular.
My fingers are crossed.

The beauty world needs more affordable subscription boxes and if it's anything like the beauty box from Amazon, then I think we're all okay. I'm sure by now we've all heard of the big named subscription boxes like Birchbox and Glossybox, and they definitely do outshine a lot of other similar style subscriptions, but there is something quite refreshing about #Amazonbeauty.
To start, you receive nine products, both samples and full-sized beauty items are included, as well as a small information guide. 
What's a beauty box without one of those bad boy leaflets anyway?

First up is the Insta Fix and Go setting spray, the spray of the God's. I never leave the house without a good setting spray. I personally think it's the best way to keep your makeup in check and to get rid of that dry look, that is often left from powdered makeup. It sadly doesn't compare to my forever loyal Smashbox spray primer, but it's a good cheap alternative. 
Next up, is my favourite a Sally Hansen nail varnish - it is perfect.
I'm not a manicure girl, in fact, I'm not a salon girl, but this is everything in a bottle that I could ever need. It is salon material, in the comfort of your own home. 
I never need to leave the sofa again.
I think around a year ago I mentioned my adoration for the L'oreal Clay masks and it just so happens that they've released mini-sample sizes for the perfect night in. I think I'm in heaven because they're perfect when I'm travelling and need a little pick me up. 
I don't think any look is complete without a statement lipstick and the Bourjois Rouge Laque liquid lipstick nails it on the head. It's daring, bold and different, exactly what you want from a lipstick.
As with many beauty boxes, sample sized products are occasionally included, #Amazonbeauty leads with a sample size of Bio Oil, five miniature Nip+Fab cleansing pads, four miniature Yardley Contemporary Classic perfumes and a sample size of Cetaphil skin cleanser.
They're cute, small and of course get the job done. I find that more travel bags consist of more sample products than anything else, but they do come in handy. 
The icing on the cake ends with the dual precision Wunder brush. If you have the full kit at home, then you'll be aware of how great the brush can be for getting those perfect brows. 

It's the perfect box for any beauty enthusiast and at £14.99 it can only get better. Amazon currently has a promotion on, where you purchase the box at full price and receive the money back to use on beauty products sold directly from Amazon. It's a win, win in my book. Here's to hoping they jump onboard with the beauty subscription idea because I can't get enough.
Male versions of the box are also online, they focus more on sample sizes than anything else, but it's something fun for the boys.

#AmazonBeauty is changing the game.

Oh wow a real contender for the beauty box market. Tbh I'm terrible with subscription boxes myself - rarely using all the items!

I've often had a stationery subscription boxes but never tried a beauty box. I'm probably a bit 'set' in my makeup routine so I might give this a go :-) Looks like there's alot of things for the money.
Love Bec
