Shopping channel QVC are probably best known for their insane selection of products to purchase at the most random times of day (two in the morning blender anyone?!), but their latest offering for the beauty world is something which I think is seriously impressive and amazing value for money; the Tili Beauty Box.
I can’t even remember where I first saw this advertised as to be totally honest, I don’t watch QVC at all. I think that their social media marketing must have worked its magic in this case as I sort of recall seeing an ad on Facebook about it, I’m not exactly sure. But wherever I did see it, I’m so glad that I did, because this box’s contents is actually one of the very best I have had so far in terms of quality products for a bargain price.
As with most beauty boxes, the packaging and overall appearance comes up pretty high on the importance list, (first impressions and all that), and this offering from Tili doesn’t disappoint. It comes in a very sturdy yet beautiful duck-egg blue box with the brand’s logo on front…..
…and the brand’s name and motto on the inside.
T, I, L, I; each standing for “Try It, Love It”, is actually simple yet very effective, as I feel that most beauty boxes are all about trying out (and hopefully) loving new products.
The contents are really impressive though, and I’ve been using every item in there for about a week now, with the exception of one (which is a fake tan anyway, and have put it aside for a special occasion next week when I want to look a little less pasty).
The products listed are as follows. (I haven’t been using them all long enough to write a proper review but I’ll provide first impressions where possible);
Elemis Smart Cleanse Micellar Water 50 ml: my first product from this popular brand, and one which I am absolutely loving. So gentle on the skin yet very effective at removing make up. Liking it a lot!
bareMinerals SkinLongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum 25ml is a gorgeous product to use before bedtime. I’ve been applying the tiniest amount to cleansed skin and it makes it feel so silky and hydrated.
Alpha H Liquid Gold 50ml is a bloody game-changer in my skin routine, and I think could be my new holy-grail of products. I have already noticed a difference to my complexion since using this acid toner after cleansing, and I can definitely understand why this is such a cult product. I’m also beginning to understand why women pay more for premium skincare…
Becca Backlight Priming Filter is a very light and pearlescent primer which gives skin a gorgeous glow before foundation is applied. You could almost get away with skipping the base when wearing a bit of this and just play up the eyes or lips instead. It’s a very nice product, and I can see why Becca is so popular.
Essie Ballet Slippers is without doubt one of the most widely used and loved baby-pink’s out there. Essie in general are a great nail polish brand, and this super flattering shade of pretty pink is gorgeous. The texture is very nice, but you have to do a good two coats at least to ensure it’s fully opaque.
Nexxus Nutritive Shampoo and Conditioner both 33ml are a brand which I haven’t heard of before, but I’m really liking this combination on my hair right now. Again this is a premium brand and as with the skincare, I’m also starting to see why girls invest in slightly more expensive hair products. Because they really do work.
These two combined have left my hair feeling clean and light yet nourished at the same time, with no nasty left-over residue I almost always get with high-street shampoos and conditioners. The silicone-free shampoo probably has something to do with that..but whatever it is, this American-based brand are very impressive.
Last but not least, is the Vita Liberata Luxury Tan Phenomenal Mousse 25ml with application mitt. Now this is the one which I haven’t used yet but I am SO excited to give it a whirl next week before I go to a friend’s wedding.
I usually always stick with St Tropez or the more budget-friendly St Moritz for fake tan (or Dove’s DermaSpa for a gradual tanner), so this is a complete change for me, but I have heard so many good things about this brand, I’m just hoping it won’t disappoint and actually live up to its hype! It’s supposed to last between 2-3 weeks apparently…I’m quite sceptical about this but we’ll see. I’ll report back as and when I’ve used it and give you a proper review very soon.
So that’s it for my first impressions/review of the QVC Tili Beauty Box. It’s their first edition and I already can’t wait for the October box, which is apparently going to be quite festive-themed.
It costs £20.00 including p&p which I think is amazing considering the fact that there are some very nice, high-end products in here of generous quantities too. Find out more and order your own box here.
I hope you enjoyed this review, and I’ll be back very soon.
