THE BEAUTY BOX YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT

Hi, my name's Elle, and I am a beauty hoarder.

Seriously though, my love for beauty is as real as my love for Harvey Specter - Dear Suits, can you return to my TV screen now please and thanks - and with my love of beauty hoarding comes a complete and utter inability to not want to constantly try new products. Haircare, skincare, makeup, tanning products, you name it... I wanna slap it on my face/body and reap in the glory of all things beauty.

(Reap in the glory of all things beauty... that might be one of the strangest things I've ever said. Let's pretend that didn't happen.)

I recently heard about a beauty box that was different to a lot of the others that I'd tried and loved before and it immediately got me wanting/needing to know more. Said box is the Tili beauty box from QVC, said reasons why I am completely obsessed with it? Grab a cuppa and a snack (I'd say digestive biscuit but if you've got time for a bacon sarnie then you do you, boo!) and prepare for a rave.

First things first, the Tili beauty box has no subscription service. Yep, you read that right, you don't need to sign up to a minimum amount of boxes, you can just go right in and buy the one. I love this because as someone with far too many products and an embarrassing love for beauty, as much as there's a lot I'd love to try, there's also a lot that I'm really not interested in. So I struggle to commit to subscription boxes because you never know if you're going to love the majority of the products. 

It's a seasonal box released 4 times a year - another thing I love as you can really tell that a lot of thought has gone into the box - and genuinely always contains such a beautiful variety of products covering all bases. 

I'll get into the products any moment now but one final brag for Tili... the rough total of the contents of the box comes to around £70, but you can buy the box for only £20 which means the value for money is insanely incredible [insert hand clapping emojis here].

Now, onto the box...

Julien Farel Anti aging shampoo and conditioner
So this stuff is a little bit game changing. I had never even considered that my hair could age until these products came into my life, and it's one of those scenarios where you didn't realise you needed them until you had them. They are a luxuriously rich, colour safe shampoo and conditioner duo which magically manages to be super lightweight but also extremely moisturising (clever little thing). I'd highly recommend if your hair is looking a little lacklustre and dull as it really gives it that added oomph. God I love a bit of oomph in my hair *insert sassy Beyonce-esque hair swish here*

Ultrasun Anti Aging SPF 30
Ultrasun, it's a blimmin classic isn't it. This brand has been in my household since I was teeny tiny so it's always a really nostalgic product for me. It's a classic, it does what it says on the tin, this one in particular is perfect for me as it's travel friendly (yasssss to travel friendly items) and is also amazing for your skin. With the latest skincare advances and research, this delivers all day protection preventing UVA induced photo aging and effectively neutralises skin damaging free radial skin activity.

Yep, I have no idea what half of that means either but I do know that it's a frickin incredible SPF.


Benefit Rollerlash Mascara
The eyelash gods were looking down on us with this one... Benefit Rollerlash. If you haven't tried it, you need to. From the very first time I used it I declared my love and never looked back. It lifts the lashes, curls them so beautifully and really gives all the volume too. It's one of those that you just need to try to realise how good it is!

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream
Oh.My.God!
Oh
My
God.
This stuff, is so, so good. So good. Ok, let's rewind and say sentences that are actually helpful. The IT cosmetics cc+ cream is a beautiful, full coverage cream containing SPF 50+. Developed with plastic surgeons, there's no wonder it's a Number 1 best selling, award winning product. The only slight drawback is that you might not get the shade you need as it's medium that is in the box, but you'll be able to see the stunning texture and coverage and can always mix it with a slightly darker/lighter concealer to make it the perfect shade if need be.


Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan
I have pretty much raved about this tan to anyone and everyone that will listen to me over the last few months. I am the laziest human when it comes to self tan. I hate the stickiness, I hate the smell, and ultimately the tan never lasts for long enough to justify sleeping in a sweaty stinky mess.

How sexy of me, I'd always wondered why I was still single but this is suddenly making things for clearer for me [insert cry laughter/yes I'm tragic emojis here].

The Ten minute tan is different. You apply it as you would a normal self tan, leave for 10 minutes, then wash off in the shower. Over the next few hours the colour will start to develop and by the next morning you will feel all kinds of bronzed goddess. I for one am all about that life.

Alpha H Liquid gold, Rose limited edition
A rose edition of the ultimate skincare classic, Alpha H is a glycolic acid based product which is incredible for reducing scars, acne breakouts, fine lines, age spots, pigmentation. You name it, it does it. I was so happy to see this in the Tili box because it really is a cult classic skincare item that I think so many will love. 


Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish cleanser
If you haven't tried the Liz Earle Cleanse and polish then get off of my blog right now! (ONLY JOKING PLEASE STAY I LOVE YOU REALLY!) But this cleanser seriously is the original and in my opinion, the best. I've been using it on and off for at least 8 years now and it's the one I always go back to. A beautiful creamy, nourishing, extremely gentle cleanser that just feels so soothing and moisturising on the skin. It removes every scrap of makeup, doesn't dry out your skin at all, smells like a gift from the gods... UGH THIS STUFF IS SO GOOD!

Erno Laszlo Cleansing Oil and bar
Out of the whole box I feel like this might be a brand that you've heard of the least. Erno Laszlo isn't huge in the UK, however as a very lucky beauty blogger I'd already been able to try some pieces from the range which is why I almost did a Tom Cruise jump on Oprah's sofa kinda movement when I saw this inside. The cleansing oil is an absolute dream, gentle but removes every last scrap of makeup, and the bar is perfect for quick cleanses in the morning. The reason I love this most though is that they are both so incredibly perfect for travelling. As you can see, each product is small (but lasts a lifetime) and can easily be put in your hand luggage liquids etc. Plus they are just so damn cute aren't they?

No, just me that finds mini beauty products outrageously cute? Oh, Ok then, awkward...


OPI Fiji Collection nail polish
Last but most definitely not least, we have this beautiful nail polish from the OPI Fiji collection called Do you sea what I sea (see what they did there, see what they did there!) and oh my goodness I can't get enough. Firstly, the formulation of OPI polishes is perfection. Super long lasting, a beautiful even finish, very opaque... but it's this colour that I honestly can't get enough of for summer (looks especially sassy on toes). However the rest of the collection is equally as babe'in so if you don't get this one, you'll definitely get a beautiful shade perfect for the months. For me, nothing beats a great mani/pedi that you know will last you for ages so it's well worth getting your hands on.

Annnnnd take a breath. Is it just me that almost gets a little bit exhausted after raving for days about beauty products they're passionate about? To wrap this up though, I genuinely couldn't recommend the Tili Box enough. It still blows me away that it's just £20 but you get so many incredible products inside, all from such stunning brands too. Also, because it's not a subscription service, it makes for the perfect one off gift for a beauty loving friend (and of course, yourself, but that goes without saying right?)

Available from QVC, you can grab yourself a little box of dreams - brb while I vom at my level of cheese - here.


I'd love to know if you've ever tried the Tili box before? What are your thoughts on beauty boxes? I'd love to hear your thoughts :)

As always, thanks so much for reading!

  1. I looooove the Tili box! it's basically the only beauty box subscription type thing that I'll buy because I hate having to sign up for a certain number on months! I also love how all the boxes come in different pretty colours and I keep them and use them as storage boxes after! xo

    2. THE MIGHTY SPELL CASTER THAT HELPED ME SOLVED MY URGENT CRITICAL RELATIONSHIP PROBLEM.
      I dont know how to really thank Dr. Keke Odin for what he did for me. My Name is Anita Kelly from Los Angeles, i was dating this man who i loved very much for over four years now without any problem in our relationship. so at a point he changed so suddenly after returning from the office and started behaving so strangely. it even got to the extent that he told me it was over and i should never call him again. This was a person that loved me with everything that he had. When i told my friend jenny what happened, she introduced me to a great spell caster called DR KEKE ODIN, the chief priest of all spell caster. At first sight this man told me all my problems that it was his secretary that used a charm on him. Dr KEKE ODIN told me not to worry that he will help me solve the problem. The following day, i was in the house in a sober mood when i first received a message from my boyfriend that he was very sorry and before i dropped the phone, he called me again to say he is on his way home and that he was truly sorry for everything. To my greatest surprise, one week later he engaged me and we got married. All Thanks to KEKE ODIN. You can contact him through the following means

  2. I love the sound of this! I've never subscribed to a beautybox because of the fact that you always have to commit to certain amount of them, and it always put me off a little bit. BUT, as this sounds pretty affordable, maybe I'll finally give a beauty box a try! :) x

  4. This definitely sounds like my kind of beauty box! I can't really be dealing with the whole subscription thing because some months I just might not have the room or money for them and I don't like being stuck having to get it. So buying just one when I actually want to is perfect! And yes I also find mini beauty products outrageously cute haha xxx

  10. I much prefer boxes that you can buy as a one off as opposed to monthly subscriptions, they tend to feel a little bit more special, plus (as proved with this one) there tends to be better stuff in them too!

  11. It is important to take care of your skin. Beauty demands a lot from you and it's your duty to take care of your skin. Always use good products for your skin that gives you the good results too. As we all know that after 30's age our skin face aging signs problems. So it is important to avoid that signs of problem. Use lifecell all-in-one anti aging cream that will helps you to avoid that signs from your skin.

  12. I've only very recently heard about this box, but it looks and sounds great! The products you've received all sound amazing and who wouldn't be persuaded by your rave reviews!? Benefit Roller Lash mascara is such a great classic and I use it all the time xo

  13. Good new my bf is back.. I was having serious relationship problems with my bf and it has gotten to a point of him moving out to his friend’s apartment. everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr happy by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood bf; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and a day after the spell my bf called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr happy. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. Please my advise to every one looking for relationship help, marriage help, get and fix your broken home, is to contact Dr happy the real Africa spell caster now on.............. happylovespell2@gmail.com for more about him and his love spell how it work fast, visit his web site..... http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ and for mobile call or..... Whats-app messages add him on +2348133873774.......

During our discussion I would always say I did .. This February he called it off and since then I have been a mess.. I gave it a lot of thought and realised my mistakes and why I was doing it.. I tried talking to him .. begged him.. pleaded him .. but he says that he has lost all his feelings for me and would never get back to me..I was in my knees praying looking for help, them i fine a comment online how a spell caster help to restored relationship get ex lover back, ” so i decided to give a try coz i love my boyfriend so much. so i contacted Dr happy http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ tell him all my problem and he gave me 100%guarantee that i will have my boyfriend back after the spell so i was gifted and lucky to have contacted him i did every thing he ask of me and to my greatest surprise a day after the spell my boyfriend call me and apology for what he did to me and ask for my forgiveness to come back again for me, we both are happily living together again plz Contact him urgently via......... happylovespell2@gmail.com or add him on whats-app +2348133873774 Junia Noel from USA
