Okay, so most boxes seem to have arrived at their destination – so far so good; no negative feedback. I can’t tell you the relief!
However, I know there is some disappointment from those who weren’t able to get hold of one, or didn’t know about it. I can confirm that I will do one more, probably in November time with a Christmas theme. The best way to get to know about this is to use the subscribe box on this blog – it means you get an early morning email with the previous day’s blog posts and this will alert you. Or, you could use Blog Lovin HERE to subscribe.
Anyway, a very big thank you to everyone who is tweeting and blogging about the box – I’m so grateful to you and delighted that you like it so much. You can use the #BBBbeautybox hashtag and that way I can make sure I see your posts and keep up with the tweets.
I’ve also spotted that there are three BBB Beauty Boxes on Ebay for £45 each; I can’t stop whoever did this, obviously, but can only urge you not to part with your money – that wasn’t the intent of the box (otherwise I would have charged that and gone on a world cruise!!!).
The success of the box has taken me by surprise, really. It was more just an experiment in going through the process but I did know that the products had to be exciting and interesting and things I already loved. As I say, plans are going ahead for another one – as for the future of BBB Beauty Boxes – I really don’t know; the point of them is to try and give something back to readers that is genuinely good value and because I’d like them to have the opportunity to experience the things I rave about (with good reason, I hope). What I imagine will happen is that others will emulate and hopefully there will be more amazing boxes, but then, as happened with subscription beauty boxes, supply will outstrip demand. The very last thing I ever want to be said about my beauty boxes is ‘oh no, not another one!’ If, next year, I can see there is a real demand I might re-think, but for now, past the November one, it’s not in the forward plan of BBB!

Fantastic box full of summer goodies x thank you!
Oh I sooooooo want mine to come! 🙁
Love love LOVE my box! So full of goodies!
I adore my BBB box , cheered me up no end 🙂
Thank you for linking to my blog Jane. You know my thoughts on this box (as do my twitter followers, friends, family etc). Well done! 🙂
My box arrived this morning. It has a fantastic selection of products and some of the items are bigger than I’d expected which was an extra bonus. It even surpasses the original Selfridges box which had always been my favourite-ever box. I’d definitely love one of your November boxes.
My daughter and I shared the box, worked out very well!!! We were both very happy girls! 🙂
Just curious to know if the next one would be available to other countries.
We are definitely looking at options for that, but postage is SO expensive it would make it not such a bargain box at all x
Such a pity. There are lost of Thijs in it we don’t have here in belgium.
Love my box – thanks so much. The Bourjois Blusher is wonderful and as for the NEOM hand cream well it’s the BEST hand cream i have EVER tried. Looking forward to the next one.
I love my box! I haven’t got past the ‘staring at my pretties’ stage yet, but will soon dive in and try everything. I await with bated breath the November box! Will there be more than 500 this time? I’m pretty sure now the word has got out there will be even more of a frenzy trying to get hold of it!
Received my box yesterday and it’s fantastic!!! Thank you so much, look forward to the Christmas box!!!
Wish I’d of heard of this before! Such a good idea, will be getting the Christmas one. Well done BBB!

Hi! So I have very rarely commented but wanted to leave a mini review – I don’t have a blog but I’m so grateful for this awesome box 🙂 Always loved your honest reviews, so snapped up a box quick! I’m just about to go on holiday so none of these are long-term reviews but my first impressions. So…
Illamasqua Electrum gold eye cream – this is gorgeous, very pigmented bright gold. It slipped off my eyes very quickly but that was without primer – it lasted well swatched on my (non-oily) hand! Buildable too – looked quite dramatic at first, but I tried just like a liquid liner too and that looked summery.
Solar oil – sitting by my bed, waiting for post holidays repair. had it used by manicurists before so I have high hopes. I’ve got the Neom hand cream is there too – which smells delish.
Lanolips – I already have the lemon one by my bed for overnight nourishment. Lovely nude-ish colour – already packed for my holiday.
Elemis Tri-Enzyme mask – felt so refreshed afterwards! Skin was starting to break out over the weekend, but settled right down. Going to buy full size. Felt a bit cold rather than tingling for me.
Purity – lovely light and fresh. Didn’t take eye makeup off, but otherwise left me very fresh and clean in a gentle way. Used for a second time with my facial brush (the Boots No.7 Clarisonic knock off) and it was the perfect level of clean – not too abrasive but got the job done.
EGF – used this before as a sample. It is nice, but I’m under 30, so think I’m not the target audience. Given to my mum.
Porefessional, Bourjois Cream Blusher – I already own these, so they are being popped into my holiday case as spares 🙂 One thing I found with the blusher is I have to use a light hand – with shade 01 – but I am very pale, and it lasts well.
B. Mascara – lovely day mascara – perfect for those of us who prefer a subtler look rather than the full-on TOWIE spider lashes at work. In the holiday bag too.
Melvita – I cannot get over the lushness of the smell – my flatmate commented in the lovely smell as I passed her. The water has been a lovely spritz in this weather, and the balm is in my holiday first aid kit. If this was a fragrance I’d be bulk buying it!
Trilogy facial oil – surprisingly light and sweet. I put a bit in with my usual overnight moisturiser as it is a bit hot to use fully right now.
Jo Loves – great grown up, day smell. Keen to try the rest of her range.
So I LOVED the box. It was great to try out stuff slightly out of my usual price range, but the quality has convinced me to plan to repurchase the Elemis, the Melvita and possibly the Trilogy. (I subscribed to Glossybox for a while, but frankly was never convinced by the stuff I recieved) I am already a devotee of the Benefit, Bourjois and Lanolips. I’d be interested in the Illamasqua if they do bronze-ish or rose-gold colours. Some of the rest need a couple of weeks try out – and it is wonderful to have the sizes of sample to do so. The box had real thought in it clearly. I even did a BBBBB mini-facial with the Purity, Elemis, Melvita and Trilogy!
Jane, you are awesome 🙂
I so appreciate that you took the time to do this… it’s so kind of you, especially as you don’t have a blog! Above and beyond! xx
