New Year, New Cohorted Box…

januray cohorted box

Oh yes, it’s that time of the month again. No, not that time of the month. Get your head out of the gutter – gosh. It’s the time of the month where I show you what’s in this month’s Cohorted box and decide whether or not I think it’s value for money (which it always is, by the way). Cohorted boxes retail for £35 (this month’s is worth £133) and this is what you get inside January’s…

This month’s box was focused on a January detox so there was only skincare in this one and not any make-up. Don’t get me wrong, I love skincare products as much as the next girl, but I was kinda hoping there’d be some make-up in this one. However, this box definitely didn’t disappoint with the range of skincare items you get. The item I was possibly the most excited for was the Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser from Sunday Riley. This is a brand I’ve wanted to try since, well, forever, and when I saw that a Sunday Riley product was included in this month’s box, I jumped for joy. This is a clay cleanser, meant for normal to oily skin (which my skin is not, sadly) and it claims to be a “pore perfecting cleanser”. I don’t have too much of an issue with my pores so I am probably not the best person to say if this works. However, it made my skin feel really lovely and with a hefty price tag of £35, it was nice to try this one for free. This is only a sample size, 30ml compared to the full size of 130ml, but it’s a very generous sample in my opinion.

Next up is the Marc Jacobs Re(cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist which, again, was something I was really excited to try. Again, this is not a full sized product but that’s not surprising as Marc Jacobs is such a luxurious brand. You do get a really decently sized sample of it though – 30ml. This product claims to “recover your glow, and set and perfect with this next-generation makeup setting mist that combines 24-hour performance with hydrating, skin-loving actives.” Hydrating, now this is something I can get behind! This is really lovely. I’ve been very loyal to my MAC Fix+ for many years but I think I’ve found a new love with this one. The coconut scent is super delicious, the mist comes out incredibly fine and it gives my face such a beautiful, radiant glow. As this is a mini, it would be perfect to pop in your handbag and keep your make-up looking fresh and glowy all day.

Urban Veda is a brand I’ve heard so much about. The packaging is really pretty – dark purple and red, I very much approve. I’ve tried their rose face oil and think it’s better than sliced bread so when I saw a trio of minis from Urban Vedatheir scrub, body lotion & body wash – included in this month’s box, I was so excited to try it. I always love having minis like this in my collection because they are so useful for traveling. They’re all supposed to have hydrating, moisturising properties to make skin feel as enriched and as luxurious as possible. I haven’t tried the entire trio yet (I’m keeping the body wash for when we next travel, which will be in February. The scrub and body lotion are really lovely, however, and I’ve definitely found some new body loves.

There were two face masks featured in this month’s Cohorted box and both from brands I’ve never heard of before. There was a sheet mask from Wish Formula, with honey fermented serum. I can’t find this mask anywhere on the internet, but according to Cohorted, it’s £6 and contains lemon and peppermint. I really like this mask and I’m so sad that I can’t find it for sale anywhere as I’d really like to use it again. It made my skin feel so soft, moisturised and clean and I really enjoyed it. The other mask is a Skin Chemist Charcoal Peel Mask. This is a full-sized product and it’s worth £39.00 which is pretty good going considering the Cohorted box only £35. This mask, again, is made for oily skin but I have used it and did like how it made my skin feel however I’d be sceptical about using it too often as I wouldn’t want to dry my skin out.

The final skin treat in the Cohorted box is a sample size of the Lancôme Regenergie Multilift Day Cream. This day cream has an SPF of 15, aiming to firm the face and neck and reduce visibility of wrinkles. I think it’s never too early to worry about having firm skin, even at age 20. As I don’t have any wrinkles yet, I can’t really comment on whether it works in that aspect but it has made my skin and neck feel super firm. My mum is a big advocate for looking after your neck – in her opinion it’s the biggest tell of someone’s age and ‘always the first to go’. I think she’d love this cream and it’s a big birthday of hers coming up next month so maybe it would be a good present…

Overall, I’m so impressed by the value for money that Cohorted provide with their boxes. I think it’s a great way to test out products that you never usually would buy and find some new favourites. I am obsessed with the Marc Jacobs mist and the Urban Veda products and love the idea of a January detox!

    The Marc Jacobs coconut mist sounds absolutely divine, I love the scent of coconut and I use coconut oil in skincare routine all the time so I can guarantee that I’d love that product! The Wish Formula mask sounds like something I’d love to try as well – I have super dry winter skin at the minute (boo) so anything moisturising is sorely needed by my poor skin haha! I am really impressed with the value for money you recieved in this box too!

    This sounds like such a lovely collection of products, and the value is incredible. It’s a shame there weren’t any makeup items, but as you say the products you do get are incredible. The Sunday Riley Cleanser wouldn’t be for my skin type either but it’s so good to receive it. Xx

    I was so impressed with the selection in this months box and I’d been so keen to try out the Ceramic Slip Cleanser.

  19. January 31, 2018 / 10:44 pm

    I’ve been looking at getting the cohorted Box recently, but as more of a makeup gal I’m glad I didn’t pick this one x

  20. February 6, 2018 / 4:28 pm

    These boxes sound so great and I can’t believe just how much products you get for #35, especially when they are worth so much more! The coconut spray sounds amazing, I love the smell of coconuts (is that weird? lol) so that would be right up my street!
