Last year, QVC released a TILI (Try It, Love It) box that I raved about. Beauty boxes are two a dozen, but this was different; QVC have the budget and scope to produce incredible bargains, and they stock so many cult brands that their edit is usually pretty hard to beat.
The latest is similarly pocket and skin pleasing, so when they asked if I’d be willing to put out a blast to let you know about it, I was of course more than obliging.
I’ll get to the particulars. The first thing to say about the Tili Beauty Box Fourth Edition is that there are no full sizes in here bar the OPI nail polish, though they’re all decent travel sizes and some go far beyond that threshold (the Alpha H Liquid Gold Rose Limited Edition, for example, with thrice weekly single cotton pad swiping sessions should last at least 2 months).
Pretty skincare heavy, this one is – Alpha H aside, there’s a 30ml Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (I’m guessing there’s about a week’s worth of nightly cleansing in there) along with a muslin, dermatologist’s favourite Ultrasun SPF 30 (again, about a week’s use), and a baby Erno Laszlo Cleansing Oil and bar (the bar should go for at least a week and the oil probably has about five cleanses in it).
There are two beauty ed favourites in the make-up department: It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream (this contains an SPF and makes skin look so beaut and juicy so is ideal for summer), and Benefit Roller Lash (renowned for grabbing puny little lashes and pulling them into more of a curl, though hold your lashes up as they dry if they like to point downwards like mine).
Otherwise, there’s a full-sized OPI (I got Is That A Spear In Your Pocket?, but other boxes will contain different colour ways from the Fiji collection), a baby Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan (so-named as you wash it off after ten minutes – the colour still takes 4-6 hours to develop into a honeyed hue), and celebrated hairdresser Julien Farel’s Vitamin Shampoo and Conditioner (I’d estimate there’s about 3 washes in each).
Now here’s the bit that got me all excited: the whole bounty is £20. £20! It’s a one off, no strings attached, buy it and be bowled over deal. It’s available now, here.
