Review & Giveaway: Hand-Picked Beauty Must Haves with Cohorted

If you were ever in two minds about whether beauty subscription boxes were worth it, allow me to present to you the ultimate in luxury beauty subscription boxes – THE BLACK EDITION BEAUTY BOX by Cohorted. It’s £35.00 (inc. free delivery) and in this month’s box we received products worth £92!

Each month’s box contains a secret curated selection of hand-picked beauty must haves, enclosed in an elegant all black exterior, and finished with a luxury hand tied bow.

So, on to the good stuff, here’s what was in our box:



Trystal3™ Technology combines an instant pure mineral bronze colour with long lasting self tan results for a beautiful, natural-looking medium tan that lasts for up to 5 days. The innovative formula is a world-first self tanning bronzer. Oil-free with micronised crystals for sheer, lightweight bronzing coverage and added DHA for a lasting tan result, this unique bronzing powder will leave you with soft, smooth, healthy looking skin. A Vita Liberata Kabuki Brush was included, for flawless application and lasting contouring.




Real Red

Finally – an ultra-soft matte finish lipstick that doesn’t dry out the lips. The combination of vegetable waxes, emollient oils and antioxidants protect and soften the lips. It also contains allergen-free perfume.


ON LIP PENCIL (travel size)

Get primed and ready for action. This long-lasting, waterproof liner glides on smoothly to prime AND define—for long-lasting lip colour and clean lines. Smooch. Pout. Smack. Nibble. Lick. 24/7, it stays put through everything (yes, EVERYTHING) you do. When you use this liner to fill in your lips completely, it primes them for lipstick or gloss, grabbing on to colour to help it last. Part of the 24/7 family, this long-lasting, waterproof formula glides on smoothly, stays creamy and defines your lips with gorgeous colour. Moisturising vitamin E, jojoba oil and cottonseed oil nourish your lips every time you reapply. And shade-matched barrels make it easy to find the exact colour you need (no matter how crammed your bag is).




Champagne & Spice




A gentle, fragranced moisturising body lotion, with a lightweight creamy texture that dissolves easily into skin. Contains conditioning ingredients to revitalise skin and envelopes skin in a satiny, protective veil of moisture. Leaves skin soft, smooth & comfortable with a lingering scent, just perfect for all skin types.


As you can probably imagine, we had lots of fun testing all of these products out. It’s difficult to pick a favourite, but if I had to, it would be the beautiful LIN & LO matte red lipstick – I’ve been looking for a matte red that’s really wearable and isn’t drying for ages. And the Betty Hula Body Moisturiser – it has actually made my super dry hands feel human again. Truly amazing, deliciously smelling stuff, and trust me, I’ve tried pretty much everything.

Overall, I love how special the black edition beauty box feels. It is beautifully presented, and actually feels like you’re unwrapping a gift when you open it. Everything about it is quality, from the ribbon tie, to the curated edit that comes with it. Sitting down with a cup of coffee, perusing it, whilst testing out the products was wonderful. Something all ladies out there should be treating themselves to each month.
