What's Inside November's Cohorted Beauty Box?

Wednesday, 22 November 2017


I'm a sucker for beauty boxes. If you saw my Best of Beauty box post, then you will know this. This month I was lucky enough to receive the November box from the lovely ladies over at Cohorted. So, today I'm going to show you what's inside Cohorted's November box and whether I think it's value for money... (spoiler alert: it so is!)

If you haven't heard of Cohorted (first of all - where have you been?), then let me explain what they do. They're a company dedicated to bringing you beauty to your doorstep via their subscription boxes like the one I'm about to show you. These are £35 each and arrive in gorgeous packaging to your doorstep as a little gift to yourself. They showcase new and upcoming brands as well as putting some well-know, cult favourites in there. They also do gifting in the form of boxes as well so if you're stumped on what to get a beauty lover for Christmas then this could be right up their alley. Cohorted sent over November's subscription box to show you. Now, there are only 8 days left in November to get this but fear not, they also have a section on their website where you can explore their older boxes - so the November box will be immortalised on there forever.



Despite being a beauty addict and seeing so much good stuff online about the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, I'd never actually tried one before. So, when I saw this was included in this month's Cohorted box, I was over the moon. The shade is 'Melted Coral' which unsurprisingly is a coral shade. It's not really ideal for this time of year because it's such a light, coral-y pink but I think it will be so gorgeous for summer and I can't wait to rock it then. The applicator for this lipstick is different from anything I've ever tried before but I love it - it's like a pen crossed with a doe-foot applicator. It makes the lipstick really easy to apply. The formula is very comfortable to wear on the lips and I really enjoy wearing it - I just wish it was more of autumnal colour!



I was so thrilled when I opened the box and saw this Plum & Ashby Hand Cream as I literally adore hand cream and had just run out of my beloved Garnier Mango hand cream. It's a huge, generous product for a beauty box - it's 75ml which for hand cream is massive and is literally going to last me forever. I'd never heard of Plum & Ashby as a brand before but since receiving this in the Cohorted box I've been stalking their website like crazy and wish I hadn't finished all my Christmas shopping already as I definitely would've got one of these for my mum, as well as some candles and hand wash. They seem like a fab brand and I'm so glad that this box has introduced me to it. The hand cream is really moisturising, quite thick and a little goes a long way. 


New CID Mascara || RRP £20.00

A full-sized mascara in a beauty box, I always think, is so generous. Especially as that is going to last you a good couple of months at least. I've never tried any products from the brand New CID but I am excited to give this mascara a go (once my Marc Jacobs one has run out!) because I have heard some chat about this on the Blogosphere. The packaging is a really nice silver chrome which looks pretty classy and the brush reminds me of the YSL Faux Clis which is one of my favourite mascaras ever which is very promising! From the website, it sounds really promising but I am yet to try it: "superior lash separation whilst the volumising ingredients and flexible polymers plump up and lengthen every single lash" is supposedly what it will do for you!


Figs & Rogue Brightening Primer & Illuminator || RRP £35.00

The Cohorted box itself is £35.00 so when I saw the RRP for this was £35.00 I was so shocked. It practically means you're buying this product and then getting everything else for free which is insane. Again, I'd never heard of the brand Figs and Rouge but this is a really lovely primer. It's an almost brown gold which makes a really lovely base for your foundation. It gives a really lovely glow to your face which is long lasting and make up goes on so easy over the top of it. In terms of illuminating primers, I can't say it beats my Charlotte Tilbury's WonderGlow but it is really lovely but extremely pricy - so you'd definitely be best to get it in the box!


Lancome Visionnaire Multi-Correcting Cream || RRP: £20.00

This is an anti-ageing product from Lancome - a new launch from them and the only sample included in the box. However, you get two samples so that's really generous as they're both 5ml, so you get 10ml of the product. This would definitely be super handy to travel with and mine has gone in my 'samples' drawer. However, one of these has been poached; it's been taken by Johnny. I've been trying to get Johnny into looking after his skin recently and so I've been giving him PR samples of skincare that I recieve that just don't work for me. But, he took it upon himself to just take this one! I don't mind as it's sweet he's taking care of his skin and I do have two but I hope he doesn't make a habit of this. I haven't tried this yet but it's Lancome so I expect really good things from it when I do. Johnny likes it, though!


The value of this box is £109, but you can get it for £35 which is so fantastic. I really loved the variety and the brands that I received products from in this box. I definitely recommend subscribing to this box. If you want to specifically pick up a box of a certain month, you can do that here!

  9. I'm really impressed with the value of the goodies inside this box - for £35 you really can't go wrong! Seeing so many big brands such as Too Faced and Lancôme in there as well is fantastic, this is definitely one of the better brands of beauty box that I've seen being talked about in the blogging community! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  10. I used to love being subscribed to Cohorted, but then I was getting a little disappointed with the products and ended up cancelling my subscription. However, I wish I hadn't done that because (sod's law) they started including a load of products that I've been dying to try out! Including this Too Faced lipstick xo

  12. I've never heard of Cohorted before but I'm actually on the look out for a good monthly subscription beauty box! I may just have to have a look into this... I just found I was getting disappointed more and more every month with my old ones so I cancelled but I feel like giving it another chance xxx

  13. I got this box too and was happy with the contents! I agree it's a bit annoying the too Faced lipstick is a more summer shade but I'm excited to use it in the future!

  15. Wow I cant believe how much you get in this box for just £35, especially since youve got some great full sized products and the actual value is a lot more. Ive been looking into a few beauty boxes but this one is the only one thats really caught my eye!
